Underrated Battle Rifle is top-tier after new Warzone 2 buffs



    The Cronen Squall is once again dominating the long-range meta in Warzone 2, with an astonishingly high 16.5% pick rate.

    While the gun is undeniably powerful, its popularity means players overlook a lot of the other options. This is a mistake, as following the August 16 patch, there’s another Battle Rifle that deserves significantly more attention in Warzone 2.

    According to WZ2 guru WhosImmortal, the weapon is one of the best “meta loadouts” in the game and is brilliant for eliminating foes from afar.

    • Barrel: 22″ Boremaster BarrelĀ 
    • Muzzle: Sakin Tread-40
    • Optic: AIM-OP V4
    • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
    • Magazine: 50-Round Mag

    In the August 16 patch, the SO-14 received a buff to its head, neck, and upper torso multiplier, making the gun’s damage output significantly more consistent.

    This power boost has elevated the weapon into the “meta loadout” category for WhosImmortal, who believes the SO-14 has the potential to be immensely powerful in the hands of a sharpshooter.

    With access to full-auto for mid-range and semi-auto for long-distance engagements, the SO-14 is a truly versatile option. Equipped with a “competitive TTK” and strong stability, it’s simple to land every shot on an opponent, allowing you to rack up countless eliminations.

    Despite being gifted a set of powerful buffs on August 16, the SO-14 only maintains a 0.4% pick rate in Warzone 2, according to WZRanked.

    This is criminally low, and it’s only a matter of time before the community realise how deadly this Battle Rifle can be. So, stay one step ahead of the crowd and add this to your loadout list today. It may be exactly what you need to take your gameplay to the next level.
