As planned, Resurgence in Warzone 2 is one of the most popular game modes in the game. With season 2 reloaded, we now have all squad sizes available for the game. As it was the case already for Rebirth Island or Fortunes Keep, the loadouts you should use on Ashika Island are completely different than the ones for Al Mazrah. Remember that on the CODMunity app, you have a complete meta ranking dedicated to Ashika Island, updated daily and with tons of loadouts tailored for Ashika.
So what exactly is required for an Ashika Island loadout? First, you will need to make sure your primary is versatile enough to hit targets at mid-ranges but also with a good enough ADS time to be able to start shooting on your targets quickly. This is a different mindset than for Al Mazrah, where you are looking for the lowest recoil, maximum bullet velocity, and damage range. Then for your secondary weapon, you’ll look for the absolute best mobility and quickest close time to kill.
Let’s dive into the loadouts now!
1. Best ASSAULT RIFLE for Ashika: ISO Hemlock
If, for Al Mazrah, the absolute meta could be debatable between the ISO or an LMG like the Sakin MG38, it’s really not the case in Ashika Island. The mobility of the ISO is the one of an Assault Rifle, you will absolutely shred with this gun. The only downside is the 45 rounds in the magazine, but if it’s not enough for you, try the TAQ-56 loadout from below.
2. Best SMG for Ashika: LACHMANN SUB
The Lachmann Sub, or the MP5 is amazing in season 2 reloaded. Excellent time to kill and fantastic mobility, the Lachmann is absolute meta for Ashika Island.
3. Best TAQ-56 LOADOUT FOR ASHIKA
The TAQ-56 is the best alternative to the ISO Hemlock in season 2 reloaded, especially if you need more than the 45 bullets offered by the ISO. Indeed, the TAQ-56 is pretty much the same gun but with 60 bullets.
4. Best VAZNEV-9K for ASHIKA
The Vaznev is the meta in both Ranked play and Al Mazrah, but the reason I’m placing the Lachmann sub above it for Ashika Island is thanks to the mobility. Otherwise, the Vaznev is the best SMG in the game, super easy to use, and very consistent.
5. Best BASILISK for ASHIKA
Probably the most underrated secondary right now, the Basilisk is a two shots pistol. You only need two bullets to down your enemies, and it’s even better than every shotgun available. This will also allow you to not waste a perk slot with Overkill, which is also a really good advantage!
6. Best vel-46 for ASHIKA
Finally, I know I said top 5, but I truly wanted to show you this Vel-46 build for Ashika Island. It’s amazing, thanks to crazy mobility and a recent buff! Try the MP7 in Warzone 2, and let me know what you think!
In conclusion, the Ashika Island loadouts in Warzone 2 necessitate a different approach compared to Al Mazrah. Focusing on versatile primary weapons and highly mobile secondary weapons will give you the best chance at success on this new battlefield.
