Probably everyone has seen the STG44 before... At least, if you've ever played a World War II shooter. The STG44 has always been good, and for a long time it was considered the best assault rifle in Warzone. It gives you everything you need for ranged combat: good TTK, low recoil, and good bullet velocity. However, with Season 4, the STG has been nerfed and replaced by the NZ-41 as the new best assault rifle. Nevertheless, the STG44 is still a very solid weapon that is still in our top 10 ARs tier list. Here we have the best setup and loadout.

Note: This is a setup designed for Warzone, if you're looking for an STG build for standard multiplayer, then you're looking for this build.


What's The Best STG44 Setup?

What has changed with Season 4? Well, the STG44 now simply has significantly more recoil and slightly less damage. The attachments, however, have not changed. This is still the best STG44 setup:

This build is just the best build right now. It has all the qualities you want from a long range AR: low recoil, good bullet velocity and amazing TTK. The STG is also very flexible, if you want a better long range TTK, you can use the 9 mm 60 round mag. The 7.62 bullets have less recoil and a better TTK at closer ranges, so it's ideal for Rebirth. The 50 round mag, has a better TTK at longer range, but is a bit harder to control. You should give it a try, if you play a lot of Caldera. Definitely worth it. As this is a long range AR, we want to pair it with a good close quarters SMG.

The Best Secondary Weapon for the STG44

The new H4 Blixen, is a top tier SMG. It feels amazing, has a great mag size and most importantly a great TTK up close. If you haven't unlocked it yet, the Type 100 is the 2nd best choice when it comes to the SMG meta in Warzone. These guns make a dream team with the STG, because you will be able to dominate all long and close range fights.

The Best Equipment for the STG44

LethalThrowing Knife
TacticalStun

The throwing knife allows us to finish downed players more efficiently, without having to waste time or bullets. After the stim nerfs, we opted for the stuns instead. It can help you clear out buildings or slow down all those pesky cowards, that start running as soon as a shot is fired.

The Best Perks for the STG44

Perk 1Cold-Blooded
Perk 2

Overkill

Perk 3

Combat Scout

No surprises here. The absolute standard for Warzone. Overkill so we can run 2 primaries, Cold Blooded to counter Combat Scout and Combat Scout, to track enemies better and help ping enemies to our teammates.

And there you have it, folks, the current meta for the STG44. Enjoy! Another great option at the moment is the BAR or the NZ-41.
