One of the more slept-on weapons in the Warzone 2 arsenal of assault rifles, the Lachmann-556 is one that deserves to be brought to the forefront.

Called “the keystone of the Lachman Meer arsenal” in Warzone 2 and MW2, the 556 “bridges the gap between submachine guns and full-powered rifles,” according to its in-game description.

While the Lachmann Sub, also known as the MP5, gets most of the love for the Lachmann Meer platform, the 556 needs some attention, too. It’s not the most powerful assault rifle, but it’s definitely one of the most accurate.

Thanks to recent buffs, the Lachmann-556 has skyrocketed in its usage in Warzone 2, becoming one of the most popular ARs in the game along with the ISO Hemlock, Kastov 762, and M4.

Here’s the best way to set up your Lachman-556 for success in the battle royale during season four.

The Lachmann-556 already has very little recoil to speak of, but this loadout will turn it into a verified laser beam that holds its own at medium distance and beyond. It’s a bit slow when it comes to mobility and handling, but as an AR, it does its job well.

This setup of five attachments will buff the gun nearly across the board, offering improvements to damage, range, accuracy, and recoil control, all while only negating mobility and handling, which are not an area of focus when it comes to assault rifles in BR.

Due to the gun’s sluggish nature, make sure to use something swift in your secondary slot, like a submachine gun or even a good pistol, like the FTAC Siege or X13 Auto.

The combo of Ghost and Double Time is always useful in the battle royale, with Fast Hands a necessity depending on the equipment you use, as well as the AR’s slow reload.

Best equipment for Lachmann-556 loadout in Warzone

  • Tactical: Stun or Flash
  • Lethal: Semtex or Throwing Knife

Stun grenades will slow enemies to a crawl, not offering them a chance to escape your gunfire, and the flash grenade will keep them blinded seemingly forever.

Lethals come down to preference, with a semtex being the best explosive option and the throwing knife is a strong choice for those who like to finish off downed enemies from a distance without expending any extra ammo.
