WZRanked, a popular website players use to view stats on the current meta, highlights how under-used the AS44 really is. Its pick rate currently sits below 1%. Despite this, WhosImmortal claims that the weapon has the mobility of an SMG and the range of an AR, making it lethal at all ranges. WhosImmortal also revealed that the AS44 has a higher TTK than the current meta weapons.
The gun is not without flaws, however. WhosImmortal claims that the weapon is "high risk, high reward" meaning that players will have to be cautious when using the AS44.
The popular Warzone expert dove into different builds for the AS44, including one strictly for close quarter situations, but WhosImmortal's overall best AS44 loadout is:
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: Kovalevskaya 615mm
- Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: Kovalevskaya Custom
- Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50-round mags
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
- Perk 1: Steady
- Perk 2: On-Hand
Even with some recoil issues, the AS44 is a legitimate beast in Caldera and in Fortune's Keep. The gun's quick TTK and versatility will without a doubt carry it into the mainstream meta soon enough.
