Best VEL 46 Warzone 2 attachments

The Warzone 2 gunsmith comes with plenty of attachments to gear any gun to suit any style of play. After plenty of testing, this set of five is more than capable of dominating the opposition.

  • Barrel: Lach-DX 203mm
  • Stock: Demo RXT Stock
  • Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: ZLR Combat Grip

The slight improvement in damage comes from the Lach-DX 203mm barrel which enhances bullet velocity and damage range. Alongside the barrel, we've gone with the Demo RXT Stock for a reduction in aim-down sight speed in order to guarantee fast reaction times

To maintain low recoil, the combination of the Phase-3 Grip and the ZLR Combat Grip means your shots will always hit the target in the heat of battle.
