The KG M40 is a fully-automatic powerhouse of a weapon, and this Scandinavian assault rifle isn’t something to be scoffed at. It’s one of the deadliest assault rifles in Warzone Pacific, boasting the second-highest damage per shot in its category and can be built to have relatively low recoil. It hits hard and can delete opponents with ease, so what’s not to love? If you’re looking for the best KG M40 Warzone loadout, we have you covered.
Despite its high damage output, an uncustomised KG M40 isn’t the most accurate assault rifle available. It has an erratic recoil pattern that can take some getting used to. However, with the right attachments, it can be lethal at middling ranges as well as long-range encounters. With a damage range similar to the NZ-41, the KG M40 rivals the best Warzone guns right from the off.
If you want to get the most out of this assault rifle, though, you’ll need to think about your loadout in full. Here we’ll go over the best KG M40 Warzone loadout we’ve found so far in Warzone Pacific Season 2, with secondary weapon suggestions and perk recommendations to compliment your primary.
Best KG M40 Warzone loadout
Here is the best KG M40 Warzone loadout you can use in Warzone right now:

As is often the case with most seasonal battle pass assault rifles, the KG M40 is a terrifying monster. This is the preferred build for one of Warzone’s top talents, OpTic Gaming streamer Zack ‘ZLaner’ Lane, which he boldly claims is the “new AR meta” – and we’re inclined to agree.
While this combination of attachments brings down your mobility, you get massive increases to your range and accuracy, making this the most fearsome long-range beamer since the Bren LMG.
With a lot of changes to the barrel attachments for most of the top ARs at the start of Season 2, now is the perfect time to ditch that STG 44 and get your hands on a gun that you know won’t let you down.

KG M40 Warzone loadout secondary
For a secondary, you’re going to want a fast-firing SMG with high mobility to compensate for the KG M40’s weaknesses.
For this KG M40 Warzone loadout, we suggest running either the Vanguard PPSh or the MP40. While the latter of those two weapons did receive a nerf at the start of Season 2, it was only to make it less viable at mid-range – it’s still a monster up close.
Check out our PPSh Warzone loadout and MP40 Warzone loadout guides for the best builds.
KG M40 Warzone loadout perks and equipment
To complete this monster KG M40 loadout, you’re going to need some perks and equipment.
In the perks department, we think that Double Time, Overkill, and Combat Scout is the way to go, and then try and secure a second loadout drop to pick up Ghost.
For equipment, we recommend running Semtex and Stun Grenades, which will both help you out in close quarters fights.
This KG M40 Warzone loadout will be immensely popular at the start of Season 2 as more and more people level up their battle passes and witness its ridiculous power. If you’re wondering where this weapon sits in the Warzone meta, we have the latest on Caldera’s best weapons here.
