Light machine guns have never really been the meta in Warzone, with a few exceptions. Sure, the Bruen and the Bren are pretty badass, but that's not the norm. The SA87 is another one of those weird LMGs that sit somewhere between an assault rifle and a machine gun. It has decent damage, it's also a bit more mobile than the very heavy LMGs, but still not as precise or agile as the ARs. Nevertheless, the SA87 has an important role to play.

The SA87 comes from the old Modern Warfare 2019 days and can replace many an assault rifle with the right attachments. Gamers who are fans of the AMAX could have a lot of fun with the SA87, because they feel so similar in your hands. And with the right recoil attachments, the SA87 can be played as an extremely powerful long-range assault rifle.

Overall, we have a typical long-range AR setup here. The silencer hides us on the mini map and, in combination with the barrel, increases bullet velocity and damage range, making long-range hits easier. The foregrip significantly reduces recoil, and the VLK sight is an excellent choice for medium to long range shooting. As always, the large magazine is self-explanatory.

The Best Secondary Weapon For The SA87

Since we want to use the SA87 as a longer-range weapon, we need a good secondary weapon for close combat. To outgun everyone in CQC we opt for the best SMG in Warzone, the Marco 5. It has an extremely large magazine, a high rate of fire and provides insane mobility. Here is our best Marco 5 setup.

The Best Equipment For The SA87


There's actually nothing special here. Semtex is always good regardless of the situation. Semtex works wonders against both infantry and vehicles. And in the Tactical slot you can of course also take the heartbeat sensor or something similar with you, but we like flash grenades. These are perfect for surprising opponents or using the hit markers to determine whether opponents are hidden in the next room.

The Best Perks For The SA87

Perk 1Cold-Blooded
Perk 2Overkill
Perk 3Combat Scout

The standard perks again... Combat Scout is just too awesome not to grab it. I mean, who doesn't want wall hacks? And with Cold-Blooded we can counter this powerful Perk. And Overkill is mandatory, obviously, so that we can carry both weapons.

That's it with our SA87 Guide for Warzone. If you're looking for a slightly different weapon and don't want to just always chase the meta, the SA87 is definitely a good choice. Alternatively, the Bren is still very strong, but the Grau or the STG44 also pack a punch!
