Striking a balance between a humongous clip size and a decent amount of reserve ammunition, the SAKIN MG38 ensures that you will be able to keep up sustained fire for long periods and still have plenty to fall back on.  

LMGs’ extensive reload time creates larger windows of vulnerability than for other weapon classes, and the MG38’s clip size is instrumental in ensuring that you won’t be caught out mid-firefight while dealing impressive damage to boot.

Warzone 2 Best LMGs: 556 Icarus

The Icarus has a slightly smaller clip size than the MG38, but it more than makes up for it in its versatility, handling, and rate of fire. If there was a single LMG to recommend to new Warzone 2 players, this would be it. Slightly less cumbersome than some of the heavier LMGs on offer, but still boasting excellent damage and area denial, the Icarus will never disappoint as a loadout choice. 


An absolute tank of a gun, and one that’s effectively more turret than a mobile weapon. The RAAL has incredibly low mobility, so run-and-gun players will want to look elsewhere. But for those that favor finding a defensible position and gunning down your foes, the RAAL will be a real treat. 

This weapon emphasizes both the strengths and weaknesses of the standard LMG, boasting incredible performance in specific scenarios. If you’re on board with its particular gameplay style, the RAAL MG can serve as a truly lethal choice of LMG.
