Despite having fallen out of favor somewhat, light machine guns remain powerful weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone, and this loadout makes one of them virtually recoil-free.

Low recoil loadouts have always been popular among players, as they make some of the most effective weapons in the game significantly easier to use. This build for the MG42 created by TikTok user klproductionsog takes that approach to the next level, removing almost all the recoil on the gun.

In his TikTok demonstrating the loadout, he holds the trigger down for the entire magazine of the MG42 without pressing any other buttons or touching the thumb sticks. True to his headline, the reticle of the gun barely moves at all. He then demonstrates it shredding opponents in an actual match.

The loadout is as follows:

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: VDD 890mm 32m Luftshutz
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: VDD 64m
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 6.5 Sakura 125 Rounds Drum
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Perk: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The loadout in the TikTok itself has one difference, as it recommends the VDD 54M 32M stock, but no such stock exists. The VDD 64m is the closest match.

The Tight Grip perk makes this loadout particularly effective with no recoil, as you'll become more accurate the longer you hold down the trigger, and you can hold the trigger down without fear of overpowering recoil thanks to the other stabilizing attachments in the loadout.
