Warzone pro and OpTic member ZLaner has featured a STEN expansion that he thinks could find a home in the meta in Season 3.
It’s a new era in Warzone, and the weapon balance changes in Season 3 are phasing out some of the game’s most beloved gear.
The game’s best players are already on the hunt for the weapons that could replace old favorites and ZLaner believes they have found a viable solution in the STEN.
ZLaner’s STEN equipment
This version of the STEN is a variation on the most popular gear for the nearby monster.
The basics will likely be familiar to anyone who has used the STEN during Season 2 Reloaded, but there are a few tweaks that make this version stand out.
- End of a loop: Recoil booster
- Walk: SA 65mm Rapid
- Optics: SA 32s
- underflow: Carver Forgrip
- Stock: Gawain Para
- Magazine: fire hazard
- Ammunition: 9mm 50 round drum
- rear handle: Grooved Grip
- advantage 1: Acrobatic
- advantage 2: Fast
Some notable changes here include the move to the 50 Round Drum and Incendiary magazine’s inclusion of the Extended option.
Both are made to highlight the TTK up close, where it really excels against the competition anyway.
Unlike the Milano, this isn’t the type of SMG you use as an AR replacement on Rebirth or as a viable long-range secondary feature on Caldera.
The STEN is intended for scrappy, close-quarters action and delivers in spades.
After giving this setup a run on Rebirth Island, Z seriously praised the weapon and even compared it to the Owen Gun, saying, “I think I like this one better.”
There will no doubt be a ton of weapons coming in and out of the meta in the early weeks of the season, but at first glance it certainly looks like this build has staying power.
