Best Warzone Grau 5.56 class loadout: Attachments, Perks, Setup

James Busby

Modern Warfare’s Grau 5.56 may no longer be the best AR in Warzone, but when this deadly class is kitted out with the best loadout attachments, it can still dominate in Season 3.

Despite being released back in March of 2020, the Grau still remains a decent pick for those that prefer close to mid-range firefights in Warzone. While the likes of the STG44 and Cooper Carbine may still remain at the top of Warzone’s AR meta, the Grau can still net you plenty of kills. 

With its clean ironsight, fantastic accuracy, and decent damage, the Grau is capable of melting even the most well-armored foes when combined with an optimal loadout. In order to help you get the most out of the Grau in the game’s various battle royale modes, we’ve made a lethal no recoil loadout.

Best Grau attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

As the gun stats suggest, this Grau 5.56 build is all about maximizing accuracy, range, and control. First up, is the Monolithic suppressor and Tempus 26.4″ Archangel. Both these attachments increase Grau’s damage range, while also adding recoil control and bullet velocity. 

This extra precision is especially useful as it allows us to use the VLK 3.0x Optic, which gives excellent magnification for mid-range engagements — an area that is important when playing on Caldera. 

The added sound suppression also stops you from appearing on the minimap, giving you an added element of surprise when beaming your foes. Pair this with the aiming stability/recoil control from the Commando Foregrip and you have a recipe for success. 

Lastly, the 60 Round Mags keep your ammo levels healthy throughout even the fiercest of firefights. This ensures you can continually barrage your foes without having to rely on your secondary or ground loot during later stages of the game. 

Best Grau setup (Perks & equipment)

Grau Warzone Loadout
This loadout can get you out of most situations.
  • First Perk: E.O.D.
  • Second Perk: Overkill
  • Third Perk: Amped
  • Secondary: MP40
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

It’s important to mention for this class and all other Warzone loadouts that having Amped is crucial. This is because it greatly speeds up your weapon swap animation. While you could switch out Overkill for Ghost, the close-quarter kill potential offered from the MP40 is just too good to give up.

Meanwhile, the first perk can either be E.O.D. or Double Time. E.O.D. is great at keeping you safe from enemy explosives, while Double Time enables you to tear across Caldera at breakneck speed. Of course, these perks will largely depend on personal preference, but these are statistically the best choices.

How to unlock the Grau in Warzone 

Modern Warfare Sesaon Two Battle Pass Grau
The Grau was introduced in Modern Warfare’s Season 2 Battle Pass.

In order to add the Grau to your arsenal, you’ll need to eliminate five players with an assault rifle in a minute, 25 times. This challenge is not easy to pull off in Warzone, particularly when many of your opponents will be kitted out with armor plates.

Instead, it’s best to head on over to standard multiplayer where you can take advantage of the quicker TTK. Smaller maps like Shipment will also help speed this process up even further, so consider waiting for these maps to appear in your playlist.

Alternative Grau loadout

STG 44 Warzone loadout
The STG44 is no slouch if you’d rather drop in with a more tactical AR.

The Grau is known for its hyper-aggressive playstyle thanks to its incredibly fast ADS, decent mobility, and highly precise firing pattern. This makes it particularly potent in close-to-mid-range firefights – an area that the STG44 also shines in.

While the STG 44 may not have the cleanest ironsight in the game, its overall damage and ease of use are currently unparalleled in Warzone. You can check out our best STG44 loadout right here
