The Best DG-56 Setup for Warzone Season 3

The DG-56 in Warzone season 3 is a very underrated weapon and if you feel like switching up from the meta this assault rifle might be the perfect gun for you!

The DG-56 was one of the best guns in Warzone at the beginning of Modern Warfare 3, but whilst it has fallen off in terms of popularity,  the burst Assault Rifle certainly still packs a punch with great recoil control, but also a lot of movement capabilities!

The DG-56 is now a very underrated choice in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, especially in games of Resurgence. This is thanks to the addition of the Varanus Steady Grip, which enhances its stability, making it even more effective in mid to long-range combat.

With the 60 Round Drum, you might think that it may be slow to move around with, but using the DR-6 Handstop drastically decreases the ADS speed and sprint-to-fire speed, meaning that the bulkiness you experience from the 60 Round Drum is counteracted. Alternatively, you could always take the 40-Round Mag if the weapon still feels too slow for you!

The DG-56 is great in mid-range and long-range gunfights, but it does slack a little when up close and personal – which is quite a lot of the fights you will be taking in games of Resurgence, especially on Rebirth Island and Vondel.

We recommend using an SMG as your secondary weapon in Warzone. While the DG-56 is capable at close range, the current Warzone Season 3 Reloaded meta features a whole catalogue of competitive SMGs and close-range weapons. So why not try out some of the top options listed below for the best chance at winning those gunfights?

  • HRM-9
  • Striker
  • Striker-9
  • AMR-9
  • Rival-9

In Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, the Striker-9 has emerged as a top SMG due to significant buffs. Enhanced damage output and improved recoil control boost its performance in close to mid-range encounters. With increased magazine capacity and faster reload times, it excels in close-quarters combat, making it a formidable choice in the current meta.

The AMR-9, equipped with the new Conversion Kit, transforms into one of the deadliest SMGs in the game. It becomes a 5-shot burst fire weapon, much like the DG-56, and it has drastically reduced the time-to-kill to the speed of your clicks, enhancing its lethality in intense gunfights.

While the choice ofWhile the choice of Tacticals and Lethals is ultimately yours, we’ve got some top picks that really shine. These recommendations can help you tailor your loadout to suit your playstyle perfectly!


  • Smoke Grenade
  • Stim


Semtex Warzone
  • Semtex
  • Thermite
  • Throwing Knife

Choosing between Smoke Grenades and Stims is a personal preference. Smoke Grenades can give you a sense of safety by blocking visibility, while Stims are essential for the chaotic close-quarters combat on Resurgence maps, especially Rebirth Island.

For Lethals, Semtex and Throwing Knives are great choices. They help you efficiently finish off downed enemies without drawing attention with gunfire.

Thermites are also a popular Lethal choice, loved for their ability to deal significant area damage. They excel at clearing rooms and controlling enemy movements, whether you’re hunting down enemies with bounty contracts, or doing recon and getting to the final zone early!
