Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has a lot of weapons you can use to decimate your foes in the battle royale mode, Warzone. While many will typically stick to the balanced M4A1, others are starting to pick up the Grau 5.56 thanks to its terrific stopping power and low recoil. This makes it ideal for Warzone since you’ll often engage enemies at or beyond 60 meters, so you’ll want a gun that can stay on target. However, setting up the Grau 5.56 can be a bit tricky since you need to make sure your aim down sights (ADS) speed isn’t too low otherwise you will be a sitting duck if someone jumps you.
Here is the best Loadout for the Grau 5.56 in Warzone and what attachments you should use.
Why the Grau 5.56?
The Grau 5.56 is a fairly middle of the pack assault rifle when it comes to base stats. It has slightly better control than the M4A1 and a tiny bit less range. It also boasts better fire rate, control, and accuracy than the M13, another fan favorite. But what sets the Grau 5.56 apart is its lack of recoil once you slap the right attachments on it. This allows you to mow down enemies and quickly shatter armored foes.
Best Grau 5.56 Attachments
- Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel – FFS 20.8′” Nexus
- Optic – Canted Hybrid/ No Optic
- Rear Grip – XRK Void II
- Ammunition – 60 Round Mags
- Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip
- Laser – No Changes
- Stock – No Changes
- Perk – No Perk
There are a number of terrific attachments you can throw on the Grau 5.56, but keen observers might notice the absence of Stippled Grip Tape. Typically part of any Warzone loadout, the Stippled Grip Tape is not available for the Grau 5.56, which can lead to some awkward builds. In its place, we are running the XRK Void II so you can get a faster ADS speed and make up for the negative drawbacks of additional attachments. Unsurprisingly, the Monolithic Suppressor due to it increasing our range and accuracy with the added benefit of silencing our gun.
For optics, you can easily run none on this weapon if you feel you can control the recoil without the Commando Foregrip. Personally, I always prefer having sights, but if you don’t want to run a scope then the foregrip will give you a nice boost in recoil control and stabilization. Alternatively, you can also run an underbarrel grenade launcher, but I’ve found this attachment has limited applications in most engagements.

We’re also adding the FFS 20.8″ Nexus barrel to give us a big boost in range, accuracy, and control. This is hands down the best barrel and is absolutely necessary if you want to truly be effective in Warzone with this weapon. Finally, like almost every weapon in this mode, we suggest the 60 Round Mag. More rounds ensures that you can break someone’s armor, even if they are on the move or if you miss some shots. Similar to the barrel attachments, we strongly believe this is a must-have for the Grau 5.56.
While you can certainly experiment with others, we found this is the most consistent build for most engagements. Along with the Grau 5.56, you can run either a sniper rifle, marksman rifle, or RPG to help round out your kit. There are no Perks that make a huge difference when using the Grau, so just pick which ones you prefer to use.
It may take some time to level up the Grau 5.56, but it’s absolutely worth the effort. There’s a reason more and more people are using it in Call of Duty: Warzone.
