Are you searching for the ultimate Vel 46 loadout for Warzone 2? Don’t worry as we guide you through the perfect loadout with the optimal setup for dominating the terrains of Al Mazrah.

Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 has been a massive success worldwide. The direct sequel to Warzone Caldera, Warzone 2.0 features guns, equipment, and game mechanics from MW2. There are 70 weapons in MW2, which are also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 73 weapons, 13 of them are SMGs. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a perfect playing ground for ARs and Sniper Rifles. However, SMGs excel in close-range engagements. Vel 46 has found its place as the top weapon in the meta from the SMG class with its buff in the Season 2 Reloaded update.

The Vel 46 or MP7 is similar to an Uzi and MAC 10 in structure. However, it has a faster fire rate than both of them. It has the highest mobility out of all weapons from Warzone 2’s weapon pool. Moving through buildings and windows to juke opponents in Ashika Island becomes a breeze with Vel 46.

How to unlock the Vel 46 in Warzone 2.0

The Vel 46 is available when players start playing CoD: Warzone 2.0, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon will also be unlocked. Players will have to level up their rank with the Vel 46 as they would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games to unlock some of the better attachments for the gun.

To rank up Vel 46, keep playing Warzone 2 when it is equipped. While the Vel 46 will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by slaying enemies, taking down killstreaks, and completing contracts. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the Vel 46 if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2 match begins.

Best Equipment & Perks for Vel 46 Loadout


  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Semtex

Stim is a widely used tactical capable of providing instant heals, which can be life-saving in clutch situations. On the other hand, semtex is an excellent lethal that can serve as a breaching impact and flush out other players from cover.

Perk Package – Weapon Specialist

  • Base Perk -1: Overkill
  • Base Perk -2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor

The weapon specialist package is ideal for players who are calm and calculated. The base perks are Overkill and Strong Arm. Strong Arm grants players a stronger projectile-throwing power with a preview of the trajectory, while Overkill allows them to carry two primary weapons.

Furthermore, players can use Spotter for the bonus perk, which spots enemy equipment, field upgrades, and killstreaks through walls. Lastly, the ultimate perk is Survivor, which acts as a self-revive but in the form of a perk.
