The Bren is one of the most famous weapons used by the British and Commonwealth forces in the Second World War. This classic light machine gun, which traditionally comes with a bipod and distinctive upwards-facing magazine, certainly packs a punch. In Call of Duty Warzone it can be used to turn the tides of war in your favour.
This gun has the fastest time-to-kill out of all of the Vanguard LMGs so far, and when you look at the sheer size of the weapon, it’s not exactly surprising. The Bren is extremely deadly at range, but this comes at a cost. Its recoil can be an absolute pain to control, but with the right attachments you can control its kick with ease.
So what is the best Bren Warzone loadout to use right now, and what attachments do you need in order to boost the gun’s base stats? Read on to find out how to make the Bren viable in the new Warzone meta so you can tear enemies apart on the island of Caldera.
Bren Warzone Loadout
This is the best Bren Warzone loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1:
- Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
- Barrel: Queen’s 705mm Royal
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: Hockenson SP2B
- Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 6.5 Sakura 40 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk: Tight Grip
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
With this combination of attachments, you’ll create one of the most devastating guns in Warzone.
One of the key attachments here is the Queen’s 705mm Royal barrel, as this boosts all the attributes you want for a long-range weapon like the Bren: Bullet velocity, recoil control, accuracy, and a completely broken bonus that eliminates damage drop-off at any range.
An interesting choice here is the Sakura 40-round magazine. While most LMG build boast enormous magazines containing 100+ bullets, this Bren loadout turns it into more of an assault rifle. Plus, it’s relatively slow fire rate means you won’t burn through those 40 bullets too quickly either.
As for optics, we’ve picked the 3-6x scope, simply because it’s the best medium to long-range sight for the gun. Obviously scopes are down to personal preference, so if you have a favourite, stick that on instead.
Bren Warzone loadout secondary
The Bren is deadly at medium to long range, but it’s not the most mobile of weapons. With that in mind, for your secondary you might want to pick an SMG that can carry you through close-quarter encounters.
The MP40 build in our MP40 Warzone loadout guide could fit the bill here, as its effective in almost any situation and has a relatively large mag (which could be useful if your 40 Bren bullets run dry).
Bren Warzone loadout perks and equipment
For this Bren Warzone loadout’s perks, we recommend using Double Time, Overkill, and Amped. You can use Ghost if you want, but this is only really viable if you nab it in a second loadout later down the line.
As for equipment? Well, given the recent buffs to grenades, we’d recommend either Frags or Semtex alongside Stun Grenades.
And that’s it – our best Bren Warzone loadout in full. Now that you’ve kitted out one of the best Vanguard guns available, jump on your nearest flight to Caldera, and get slaying.
