The Krig 6 has always been a decent rifle in Warzone due to its extremely low recoil. It’s one of the most easily controllable weapons in the class but has never had fantastic damage. Thanks to the Season 4 Reloaded nerfs to its rivals, however, the Krig’s long-range time-to-kill is now very competitive. Combine that with minimal recoil, and you get the newest meta laserbeam in Verdansk. To help you get in on the fun, we’ve put together this guide to the best Krig 6 loadout in Warzone.

Best Krig 6 loadout in Warzone
Up close, the Krig can’t quite hang with the likes of the Cold War AK-47 and the Milano, so we don’t recommend it as a sniper support. At long-range though, it’s one of the best Assault Rifles in the game. Here is our recommended build:
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: Mil-Spec
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition: STANAG 60 Round
This Krig is built for absolute maximum range and minimum recoil. The Agency Suppressor keeps you off your enemies’ minimaps while extending your range. A Mil-Spec Barrel extends that range further, with added recoil control and bullet velocity. Underneath, the Field Agent Grip decreases recoil even more. As usual, you’ll want the largest magazine available; in this case, the STANAG 60 Round Magazine. Finally, a zoomed optic, which is key in long-range fights. Many players, myself included, prefer the Axial Arms 3x, but others go with the Royal and Kross 4x. Try both and see which feels better to you.
As we mentioned earlier, we don’t recommend a sniper support Krig build, but you do have a few options to play with here. All this recoil control on top of the Krig’s already low base recoil makes it incredibly easy to keep on target at long range, but if you feel like it’s overkill you can trade the Field Agent Grip for a Raider Stock to improve your mobility while aiming and firing. Alternatively, if you feel the ADS speed on this Krig build is too slow, you can replace the Mil-Spec Barrel with a Ranger Barrel to speed it back up in exchange for some recoil control and damage range. There’s also always the option of a 60 Round Speed Mag to help your reload speed, but it will slow your ADS even more. Give a few of these options a try and see what brings you the most success in Warzone.
Long-range Assault Rifles like the Krig 6 typically go best with a SMG. You want a secondary with great mobility and damage output to navigate close-range fights that don’t suit the Krig. The Modern Warfare MP5, Cold War MP5, and Milano are all great options right now. If none of these suit your tastes, check out our guide to the best SMGs in Warzone for more ideas!
Best Krig 6 loadout with Perks and Equipment
We're big into the Krig 6, and the Perks and Equipment you pick are important for success with this loadout:
- Perk 1: EOD
- Perk 2: Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
- Lethal: Semtex
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
EOD is a standard pick, offering explosive protection against aggressors. This is particularly helpful when you’re trying to hold a position down. Ghost should ideally always be your red perk, but you can use Overkill to get a full kit after a death or on your first loadout crate of the game. Amped is another go-to, since switching to your SMG is something you’ll often need to do ridiculously quickly. This perk has saved us on multiple occasions.
In your tactical slot, a Heartbeat Sensor is always great for tracking down enemies. Stun Grenades are a nice option too when you know an enemy’s location and are ready to push. Once you are pushing, Semtex is a great option for a lethal. Semtex offers instant-downs for sticking enemies, and also gives you the potential for a huge amount of burst damage on enemies who otherwise might’ve had an angle on you. If you are having trouble with vehicles though, swap to Thermite Grenades or Proximity Mines.
That’s all you need with the Krig 6! This is undoubtedly one of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone right now. If you find it doesn’t float your boat though, check out our guide to the best Assault Rifles in Warzone for other meta options!
