WhosImmortal explained that he thinks his STB 556 loadout makes the weapon very versatile and capable of performing at different ranges.

“STB 556 is a wildly practical SMG/AR hybrid when built for speed and aggression,” said the content creator about the underrated rifle.


  • Barrel: 16.5″ Bruen S901 Barrel
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Comb: FTAC C11 Riser
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip

The assault rifle has an extremely rapid TTK at close and medium ranges, perfect for slotting it into your build as either sniper support or simply a close-range weapon. It is worth noting that WhosImmortal himself stated that he considers the optic a must-have because the iron sight of this weapon is rough.

The build above focuses on enhancing its mobility and handling which is very unusual for a rifle of this kind, but it allows you to be more aggressive and to ADS and shoot after sprinting much faster.

That said, you’ll still want either an AR like the meta-dominating ISO Hemlock or a sniper rifle to cover medium and long ranges where this particular loadout struggles.
