As detailed in the Season 2 Reloaded patch notes, the Sten has long had a pretty strong combination of stats on paper but was severely limited by its sub-par magazine capacities. Now with the gun having received moderate mag size increases, it appears the Sten has emerged as a fine option for those looking to switch things up.
Breaking it all down in a recent YouTube video eloquently titled, "this Sten class setup hits harder than Will Smith," however, Warzone content creator Metaphor showcased how the Sten is a meta close-range option in Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded.
"Some guy Tweeted [the loadout] out and the Tweet was doing really well so I was like, 'I might as well try it. Why not?'" Metaphor said in the video. "This thing is a complete monster. You can shoot people from close-to-mid range with this thing and it absolutely beams. It's also got incredible movement as well so if you're stimshot-abusing like I do every game, you're going to have a lot of fun running this weapon."
