Meta STB 556 Attachments in Warzone 2

Any attachment that reduces horizontal recoil is a good choice for the STB 556, and no muzzle does this better than the Komodo Heavy. If you don’t have this, other good options include the XTEN Havoc 90 and FTAC Castle Comp.

The FTAC FB20 is the barrel of choice for this STB 556 build, as it greatly increases both bullet velocity and damage range, while also reducing vertical and horizontal recoil by 12.6%. Another great barrel is the 24.4″ Bruen S-620, which has more damage range but less recoil control.

Next, the VLK LZR 7MW is an excellent attachment for keeping your sniper support weapons fast. It speeds up ADS and sprint-to-fire time by 10%.

As the STB 556 doesn’t have great ironsights, you’ll also want to equip a close-range optic. Our favorite is the Cronen Mini Pro, but go with whatever one you like the most.

Finally, the STB 556 only has one extended magazine, the 42 Round Mag, so you’ll want to equip it for your Warzone 2 loadout for this assault rifle.
