Looking for the best BAS-P loadout in Warzone 2? The BAS-P is one of the new weapons in Warzone 2 Season 1, and it's a decent little gun with great accuracy. That makes it a perfect choice for short-medium range, and our BAS-P build will make it even more optimal at range.
In this guide, we'll break down the best BAS-P loadout in Warzone 2, including the best BAS-P attachments and the best secondary weapon to use alongside it.
Best BAS-P loadout in Warzone 2
Here's the best BAS-P loadout in Warzone 2:
- Barrel: 10.5" Bruen Typhon (unlock at BAS-P lvl 23)
- Laser: VLK LZR 7MW (unlock at STB 556 lvl 5)
- Magazine: 50 Round Drum (unlock at TAQ-V lvl 20)
- Rear Grip: D37 Grip (unlock at BAS-P lvl 12)
- Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90 (unlock at M4 lvl 6)
This BAS-P loadout aims to increase the bullet velocity and damage range, while making it more accurate and easier to control. That makes it perfect for quickly beaming people at short-medium range while roaming around Al Mazrah, making it competitive against some of the best guns in Warzone 2.
The 10.5" Bruen Typhon is a key attachment in this BAS-P build, adding bullet velocity and damage range to make it much more effective at medium range. That'll prove crucial when fighting at longer distances in Warzone 2, as you'll rarely get into the point blank encounters that pop up so frequently in multiplayer. It also adds sound suppression, making the BAS-P nice and quiet.
To make the BAS-P more accurate from a distance, we've also opted for the FSS Sharkfin 90, which increases aiming stability without any negatives. The Sharkfin is always a safe bet if you don't want to detract from other stats, and it's ideal for making the BAS-P even more precise.
You can boost aiming stability even further with the VLK LZR 7MW, which also bumps ADS speed and sprint to fire speed. Lasers generally have very few negatives, with the only disadvantage here being a visible laser, and the VLK LZR 7MW has a great range of buffs that'll help the BAS-P really shine at close-medium range.
For a final little boost to your medium-range proficiency, equip the D37 Grip. This offers a decent boost to recoil control, while only slightly affecting aiming stability. Since we've already boosted that significantly with other attachments, we can afford the slight knock here to gain extra control.
The final attachment in this BAS-P loadout is the 50 Round Drum, which feels essential in Warzone 2. Those extra bullets (up from the standard 30) will help you cut down entire squads without needing to reload, making you much more effective when facing multiple enemies at once. It will make the BAS-P feel a little more sluggish, but it shouldn't have a huge impact while beaming enemies from a distance in Al Mazrah.
Best BAS-P loadout secondary weapon
Since the BAS-P is best at close-medium range, we'd recommend using a long-range weapon as your secondary. The Victus XMR is the best Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2 right now, offering unparalleled power and precision at range. However, those looking for something a bit snapper should try the SP-R 208, which ranks as the best Marksman Rifle in Warzone 2.
Best BAS-P class setup: Perks and Equipment
If you're aiming to get a loadout drop and would like some perks at the ready, then we'd strongly recommend the Specter perk package (Ghost, Tracker, Double Time, Spotter). This helps you avoid detection by enemy UAVs, while also making it much easier for you to mount an aggressive attack and bag some easy kills.
Ghost and Tracker are perhaps the most crucial perks here, with the former allowing you to hide from enemy UAVs while the latter reveals enemy footprints on the ground. This is a boost for both your survivability and aggression, as it helps you hide when enemies are seeking you out while also letting you track their location. When you do make that aggressive push, the extra intel provided by Spotter will come in handy. This lets you detect enemy equipment through walls, revealing any claymores that might give you an explosive and unexpected end. Finally, Double Time will let you use tactical sprint for longer, making it easier to dart between cover or charge at an enemy at full speed.
While Spotter can reveal equipment, few can escape the destructive powers of a C4 charge tossed through a window, making it a perfect piece of lethal equipment for this BAS-P build. For your tactical equipment, use a Heartbeat Sensor while moving around Al Mazrah or in the final few minutes of a match to learn the locations of any nearby enemies.
Warzone 2 BAS-P alternatives
The BAS-P's accuracy makes it a top weapon at medium range, but it certainly isn't the best. Some of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone 2, such as the M4 and the STB 556, are incredible at beaming enemies from a distance, and well worth trying if that's your preferred playstyle. If you really want to stick with an SMG, the FSS Hurricane fills a similar role, but deals even more damage.
