It is designed for stealth engagements, with an integrated suppressor and high-energy subsonic .300 BLK rounds that hide kill skulls from the enemy team. There are also no visible tracers, and its suppressed fire will hide you from the compass and enemy UAVs when you fire your weapon.
You can think of it as a quieter and more powerful alternative to the faster-firing M13B, although it has a shorter range than most other assault rifles.
Here’s a look at the best Chimera loadout for Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2.
The best Chimera loadout and class setup
|Barrel||6.5″ EXF Vorpal|
|Laser||VLK LZR 7MW|
|Magazine||45 Round Mag|
The Chimera is an SMG-assault rifle hybrid in the style of the Kastov-74U. It excels at close- to medium-range engagements, but begins to noticeably struggle at distances beyond 30m.
In Al Mazrah, you’ll want to prioritize attachments that mitigate these weaknesses, such as the Polarfire-S suppressor and 6.5″ EXF Vorpal barrel, both of which improve damage range.
The VLK LZR 7MW laser significantly boosts handling with better aim down sight speed, aiming stability, and sprint to fire speed. Similarly, the Ravage-8 stock leans into the gun’s strengths, improving sprint speed, aim down sight speed, and crouch movement speed.
Finally, the 45 Round Mag helps make up for Warzone 2.0’s longer time-to-kill, allowing you to take down a couple of players before reloading.
Modern Warfare 2
|Barrel||6.5″ EXF OP-40|
|Laser||VLK LZR 7MW|
|Rear Grip||D37 Grip|
The Chimera demands a different build for multiplayer. Since range matters less in the smaller 6v6 maps, you can go for attachments that prioritize handling and mobility instead.
This means the 6.5″ EXF OP-40 barrel and Bore-490 muzzle, which increase aim down sight speed and improve recoil control respectively. The VLK LZR 7MW laser and Ravage-8 stock remain staples for the Chimera, further improving aim down sight speed.
The D37 Grip rounds out this setup, helping keep recoil in check and making the weapon feel far easier to handle.
