Currently in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded, the SMG meta is dominated by a select few weapons. The Armaguerra 43 sits at the top of the pick rate charts, with the MP40 and Marco 5 following closely behind. Past these three SMGs, though, there is a number of weapons that players can use if they feel like breaking away from the meta. Warzone Season 5 Reloaded’s Sten is a great choice here; it features a strong loadout that can compete with the meta SMGs, as long as players use the right loadout.
To see the full loadout for the Sten in Warzone Season 5, keep reading below.
Best Sten loadout in Warzone
If there’s one issue with the Sten in its base form, it’s the SMG’s overall time-to-kill. At close and medium range, the gun can be easily outclassed by meta SMGs like the Armaguerra 43 and MP40. However, with its recommended loadout in Warzone, the Sten increases its TTK to compete with those meta SMGs.
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: SA 65mm Rapid
- Optic: SA 32S
- Stock: Gawain Custom
- Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
- Magazine: 9mm 50 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: Subsonic
- Rear Grip: Taped Grip
- Perk: Steady
- Perk 2: Quick
The Sten’s TTK is mainly boosted by using the Recoil Booster and SA 65mm Rapid barrel. These two attachments increase fire rate, meaning that if players are accurate, they can eliminate enemies much quicker. The rest of the loadout is primarily focused on improving the Sten’s overall mobility. The Mark IV Skeletal underbarrel, Taped Grip, and Quick perk all provide an increase to different areas of mobility.
Lastly, the Gawain Custom stock stabilizes the Sten’s accuracy while Subsonic keeps players off of the radar while firing. Though not the strongest SMG in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded by any means, this Sten loadout is a solid choice in the secondary slot.
