The Striker 45 is a far cry from the UMP days of MW2. Better SMGs dominate it, and it occupies a weird spot in the meta by having the ability to engage at mid to long-range. That being said, I’ve always been a UMP fanboy, so I’ve done what I can to make the best Striker 45 loadout for Warzone Season 2.
The best Striker 45 loadout for Warzone Season 2
If you’re keen on using the Striker 45 in Warzone, this is the loadout that I recommend:
- Stock: FTAC Precision Fixed Stock
- Barrel: 400mm Stainless Steel
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
- Optic: Corp Combat Halo Sight
You might notice a trend with these attachments, and that’s the fact that I’m not touching damage at all. In fact, the 45 has a perfectly fine time to kill as is. It struggles with recoil over range, especially considering how it’s dominated up close by SMGs with higher fire rates like the Mac-10.
Instead, all of these attachments focus on helping you control your weapon and actually use the range advantage that you have over other weapons. These attachments balance out the downsides. However, feel free to mix and match a few things depending on your preference. You’re still going to get outgunned by something like an AR, but if you rotate around the map properly, you might find that the Striker 45 is a surprisingly effective piece of hardware.
