Building 21 is a new map in Warzone 2 that was released as part of the post-Season 1 Reloaded update.

This map is all about tight spaces, where even the weakest of weapons can reign supreme – especially if they’re shotguns. 

Leave your long-range rifles at home and bring out the big guns (literally) for some intense close-quarters combat.

When you find Chimera and finish the DMZ mission, the weapon will be unlocked.

  • Get 2 kills with Assault Rifles in 15 different matches

This is actually easy to complete. Some players even found that you can complete this without completing the match. You can just quit the match after getting 2 kills.

3. The Best Chimera loadout in Warzone 2

  • Muzzle: Polarfire-S
  • Barrel: 6.5″ EXF Vorpal
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Stock: Ravage-8
  • Magazine: .45 Round Mag

The Chimera is a unique weapon in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 that has the characteristics of an SMG and an assault rifle, similar to the Kastov-74U. 

It performs well at close to medium range but starts to lose effectiveness at distances over 30 meters. 

To overcome these weaknesses while using the Chimera in the Al Mazrah map, consider attaching the Polarfire-S suppressor and 6.5″ EXF Vorpal barrel to increase its damage range.

The VLK LZR 7MW laser can also improve the weapon’s handling with faster ADS or aim-down sight speed, better-aiming stability, and faster sprint-to-fire speed. 

The Ravage-8 stock can enhance the Chimera’s sprint speed, aim-down sight speed, and crouch movement speed, making it even more effective in close quarters. 

Lastly, the .45 Round Mag can help compensate for the longer time-to-kill on Chimera. With the attachment, you’ll be able to take out multiple enemies before needing to reload.

  • Muzzle: Bore-490
