Warzone 2.0 offers an enormous selection of weapons and, as always, the assault rifles are among the absolute best weapons in the game. It should come as no surprise therefore that we're getting yet another assault rifle in Season 2: the ISO Hemlock.

The Hemlock is fairly strong. It has a slow rate of fire, but in every other department it's solid, and the range potential is particularly impressive. In this article you can find out how to unlock the Hemlock, as well as which attachments to use.

How To Unlock The ISO Hemlock In Warzone 2

The Hemlock can be unlocked with a minimum of 15 Battle Pass tokens by heading straight for sector 11. This is in both the free and premium versions of the Season 2 Battle Pass, so don't worry, you don't need to pay for the Hemlock.

Here is the route you need to take to unlock the Hemlock:

The rest of the rewards in this sector are pretty trash, but that's just the way of the Battle Pass.

By unlocking sector B19 you will also get a blueprint for the Hemlock.

The Best ISO Hemlock Attachments For Warzone 2

This our favorite build for range right now:

BarrelFielder-T50ISO Hemlock to level 13
OpticSlimline Pro Default
Magazine45 Round MagDefault
UnderbarrelFTAC Ripper STB 556 to Level 7

The Hemlock has very impressive range capabilities, but we can make it even better with a few attachments to approve recoil control. The muzzle brake, barrel and FTA Ripper grip will help in this regard. However, if you want even more recoil control then replace the Cronen with the D20 harbinger.

The extra magazines are simply a must-pick in Warzone, and the optic is up to you. We like the Slimline, but optics are always going to be incredibly subjective.

Warzone 2.0 ISO Hemlock: Secondary Weapon, Perks & Equipment

Secondary Weapon: Vaznev-9K

The Vaznev was nerfed in the Season 2 patch, but to be honest it still fries. If we're being really strict and only going for the absolute meta, maybe we should have picked the Lachmann Sub. But we like to mix things up, and the Vaz is super fun and more than viable.

Perks (Basic, Bonus & Ultimate)

These are our favorite perks right now:

Basic Perk

Bomb Squad / Tracker

Bonus PerkResupply
Ultimate Perk

High Alert

We can pick our own perks, yay! And so we've taken Bomb Squad because it's always useful, Tracker to get the jump on roamers, Resupply to keep the Flashbangs popping, and High Alert to watch out for the rats.

Equipment (Lethal & Tactical)

Our favorite combo:




In the lethal slot there are tons of good options, but we like to recommend Semtex because it's easy to use. Also, it can be used against both enemies and vehicles. Whereas for the Tactical slot, Flash grenades are broken in MWII and Warzone 2, so they're kind of obvious.

That was all for the Hemlock. If you want to try something a little bit different, check out the best battle rifles in Warzone 2.0.
