Raven Software has a habit of randomly dropping a new Modern Warfare gun into Call of Duty: Warzone, and this was no different when it came to the RAAL MG. This new LMG had been sitting in the game files for months, but was spontaneously released during the early stages of Season 5 of the Black Ops Cold War era.
The RAAL is similar to other popular LMGS such as the Bruen and the PKM, in that it has a terribly slow reload speed and poor movement stats, but hits incredibly hard, has a quick time to kill, and boasts minimal recoil. While its open-bolt delay (a small delay before your first bullet fires) means that at close range it will get smoked by most top guns in the Warzone meta, its long range potential is decent.
But what is the best class for the RAAL, and which attachments can turn it from a decent LMG to a properly strong one?
Here’s one of the best RAAL Warzone loadouts for Season 5:
RAAL MG Warzone loadout
- RAAL Monocore
- 32.0” RAAL Line Breaker
- Tac Laser
- VLK 3.0x Optic
- FFS Oblique
This RAAL build is similar to those used for its close relatives such as the PKM. It boosts its damage and bullet velocity significantly to make it lethal at long range, while the Tac Laser improves your ADS speed to snap onto targets quicker.
This is the best class setup for the RAAL in Warzone right now, according to Warzone stats lord ‘JGOD’. Check out his full breakdown of the RAAL below.
But what about the rest of the loadout? Well, due to this RAAL being pretty poor at close range, an SMG will be the perfect partner.
We recommend consulting either our MAC-10 Warzone loadout guide or our Bullfrog Warzone loadout guide for some great builds.
RAAL Warzone loadout perks and equipment
For perks, the tried and tested combination of Double Time, Overkill, and Amped will be your best bet here. While the new Combat Scout perk could also work in your Perk 3 slot, Amped will help speed up the very slow weapon swap you’ll experience by running an LMG.
For equipment, a Heartbeat Sensor and Semtex will suit this class well.
That’s our pick for the best RAAL Warzone loadout in Season 5 right now. While it may not be overpowered enough to be classed as one of the best Warzone guns, it can certainly still deliver in Verdansk.
