The SA87 light machine gun (LMG) is undoubtedly one of the best in its class and can be considered as one of the best weapons in Season 5. Available for use at level 24, the LMG has a top speed. Its low firing rate makes it possible to manage at a longer range but at close range, it has difficulty compared to its counterparts. In this guide, we’ll show you three SA87 loadout that matches all styles of play combinations to let you get the most out of this weapon.
SA87 Loadout 1 – Recoil Control
The recoil on the SA87 can be difficult to master. This SA87 loadout will make it much easier to manage.
- Muzzle Brake (Muzzle)
- Operator Reflex (Optic)
- FSS SA87 Heavy Stock (Stock)
- Rubberized Grip Tape (Rear Grip)
- Commando Foregrip (Underbarrel)
The combination of these attachments does everything to manage the recoil level to give the weapon much more control in a long-range gunfight.
- Cold Blooded (Perk 1)
- Ghost (Perk 2)
- Tune Up (Perk 3)
The first two perks keep you invisible from the majority of in-game killer fights while also speeding up the progress of your chosen school upgrades.
- Semtex (Lethal)
- Decoy Grenade (Tactical)
Choosing lethal gear is up to personal preference, but use a decoy grenade to your advantage. It is a great tool to pull enemies out, turning them into easy targets for you to take down.
SA87 Loadout 2 – Semi-Auto Slayer
This second SA87 loadout is perfect for making use of the one-shot on the SA87.
- SA87 18.2” Factory (Barrel)
- Integral Hybrid (Optic)
- SA87 Ultralight Hollow (Stock)
- Granulated Grip Tape (Rear Grip)
- Ranger Foregrip (Underbarrel)
Ideal for destroying enemies at a long-range, the combination of these attachments controls recoil when shot in both shooting modes and provides excellent levels of accuracy.
- Quick Fix (Perk 1)
- High Alert (Perk 2)
- Amped (Perk 3)
High vigilance can often be the difference between life and death on the battlefield. Increased ADS awareness, faster healing, and quick weapon swap make it the perfect character class for more passive players.
- Proximity Mines (Lethal)
- Smoke Grenade (Tactical)
A well-placed proxy mine is a very easy way to kill. Hide it even further by popping smoke on it for the ultimate surprise!
Loadout 3 – OP AR
The third and final SA87 loadout offers greater mobility, allowing you to take on Assault Rifle (AR) players in gunfights of all ranges.
- SA87 12.4” Factory (Barrel)
- 1mW Laser (Laser)
- Forge TAC CQB Comb (Stock)
- Stippled Grip Tape (Rear Grip)
- Merc Foregrip (Underbarrel)
The shorter gun barrel minimizes the damage range but it also makes the gun much more deadly in melee combat.
- Double Time (Perk 1)
- Hardline (Perk 2)
- Battle Hardened (Perk 3)
While double duration increases the length of the sprint tactic, tough battles increase resistance to both lightning and stun grenades, which is perfect when opponents try to catch you.
- Frag Grenade (Lethal)
- Stim (Tactical)
The frag grenade is the perfect equipment of this SA87 loadout that can be used in most situations while a stimulus offers quick recovery, meaning you don’t need to quickly find cover and wait to get started.
