The EM2 slowly but surely climbed to the top of the assault rifle meta, after being released two seasons ago. Now, as we enter Warzone Pacific Season 1, the EM2 is poised to continue its reign of terror in Caldera. For those who are looking to maximize the effectiveness of this rifle, we put together the best loadout for the EM2 in Warzone Pacific!
Overview to the EM2 Assault Rifle
What the EM2 lacks in fire rate it makes up for in reliable recoil control and performance at range. Dealing 41 damage to the chest, stomach, and arms, and 61 damage to the head, the EM2 has a realistic time to kill of around 550 ms, taking 5-7 shots to kill a fully armored target depending on if you mix a headshot in there or not.
Best Attachments to use with the EM2 assault rifle in Warzone
- Agency Suppressor
- 25.8" Task Force Barrel
- Axial Arms 3x scope
- Field Agent Grip
- Drum magazine
As usual, suppressing this weapon is your best option. When you run with a suppressor on your EM2 rifle, it helps keep your profile down and keep you off people's minimaps, which in turn helps keep you alive in the Warzone.
25.8" Task Force Barrel
The Task Force Barrel is an obvious choice for this gun since it ups both the damage range and bullet velocity. For most players, the benefits of the Task Force in longer-range fights are going to outweigh the penalties to your ADS speed, hip-fire accuracy, and aim walking speed. Alternatively, you could consider running the Ranger Barrel for the bullet velocity buff, if you don't want to take a hit to your ADS time and don't mind sacrificing the extra damage range that comes with the Task Force barrel.
Axial Arms 3x scope
A magnified scope is greatly helpful on this weapon. Longer range confrontations are where this gun excels, so selecting a high-visibility, moderate-magnification scope is going to only help you in bringing in those kills. I personally prefer using the Axial Arms 3x Scope, but as always you can use whatever scope you enjoy the most, so long as it works for you.
Field Agent Grip
While the stock recoil on the EM2 assault rifle is not too difficult to deal with, the Field Agent Grip really brings this gun into its own. This grip reduces both the horizontal and the verticle recoil of this gun, which turns this gun into a laser. Even if it might not technically need the recoil reduction, it is such a nice quality of life addition to this loadout, I highly recommend it.
STANAG 50 Rnd magazine
Adding the STANAG 50 rnd magazine to this weapon is a no-brainer. Once this magazine is applied, you can wipe out entire squads of enemies from long-range without having to reload once. It is pretty standard to run an extended magazine of some description on your ARs in Warzone, and the EM2 is no exception to that rule.
