NZ-41 Assault Rifle in Warzone

There NZ-41 is an extremely powerful Assault RIfle, and here are the right attachments, Perks, and equipment to make the best loadout for it in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Warzone features plenty of effective Assault Rifles for you to choose from, and the NZ-41 became so overpowered that the developers implemented a major nerf for it in the June 30 update.

Despite these changes, the NZ-41 continues to be a viable option in Warzone Pacific Season 4, you can further improve the weapon by equipping the right attachments, Perks, and equipment.

Here’s the best NZ-41 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Best Warzone NZ-41 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Orbweaver 360mm BC
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Orbweaver E Pack
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 50 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip 
  • Perk: Brace
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

This Warzone loadout starts off with the MX Silencer muzzle and Orbweaver E Pack stock to boost the NZ-41’s recoil control and accuracy. The Orbweaver 360mm BC vastly improves the weapon’s bullet velocity.

We’ll use the m1941 Hand Stop underbarrel, Hatched Grip, and Brace perk to give the accuracy a further boost, and the G15 2.5x optic will let you pick off your opponents from a distance.

The 6.5mm Sakura 50 Round Mags will grant you plenty of ammo to take out multiple foes, and the Lengthened ammo type will improve your bullet velocity, allowing you to shred through enemies. Finally, Fully Loaded will start you off with max ammo. 

Best Warzone NZ-41 Perks and equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stim

E.O.D is a great choice for Perk 1 for the protection it provides from explosive damage. You can then use Overkill to pair the NZ-41 with an SMG like the Welgun or Marco 5 for close-range combat.

For your final Perk, you can select Amped to ensure a smooth swap between both weapons. A Throwing Knife will allow you to finish downed enemies while preserving ammo, and a Stim will help you recover health.

How to unlock the NZ-41 in Vanguard and Warzone

Unfortunately for players, the NZ-41 is unlocked at Rank 41 in Vanguard, so you’ll have to do a bit of grinding before you can get your hands on it.

You can speed up this process by participating in the double XP max event that will be live until July 5, 2022.

Warzone alternatives to NZ-41

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the NZ-41 then you can give the STG44 a try. This weapon boasts an impressive TTK and effective damage range.

The XM4 is another powerful Assault Rifle that you can use to dish out some serious pain in Caldera, Fortune’s Keep, and Rebirth Island.

Warzone players call for major LMG buffs as Assault Rifles dominate meta

Warzone players are sick of Assault Rifles dominating the meta so are calling for LMGs to receive major buffs.

Published

Although supposed to be long-range powerhouses, with a few exceptions, LMGs have never broken into Warzone’s meta for long. Claiming that LMGs have no identity, players are calling for major buffs.

Although weapons come and go from Warzone’s meta, how the guns behave has almost always stayed the same. Players always stick with a long-range weapon with low recoil and a large mag size, and a lightweight SMG with a fast TTK.

The long-range weapon has almost always been an Assault Rifle or an LMG that’s been built to act like an Assault Rifle, and players are growing tired of it. With a couple more Warzone Pacific seasons left and Warzone 2 on the horizon, players are calling for major LMG buffs so they’ll have their own identity.

Although a couple of LMGs such as the Bruen Mk9, MG82, and Bren have made their way into Warzone’s meta, the class as a whole has never come close to the popularity or efficiency of Assault Rifles.

Reddit user IonlyPlayAOE3 explained why LMGS have a “sh*t identity” in Warzone, laying much of the blame on Vanguard weapons’ ten attachments. They explained that an Assault Rifle can do everything that an LMG can, especially by holding at least 60 rounds.

They hope that LMGs will have much more of an identity in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, where Assault Rifles should “struggle against LMGs in long-range to ultra long range engagements.”

Many players agreed, wanting an Assault Rifle to become a middle ground between LMGs and SMGs. “They should lose to LMGs at range, and lose to SMGs up close, but be a decent middle ground,” explained Shielo34.

However, some worried that buffing LMGs would just make them replace Assault Rifles in the meta. Instead of giving LMGs straight buffs, some suggested lowering Assault Rifles’ magazine size.

Warzone players were starting to catch on to Season 4’s UGM-8 LMG and its burst-fire barrel, but the devs were quick to nip that in the bud with the June 30 update. With the NZ-41 now nerfed as well, we’ll need to wait and see how the post-nerf UGM fits into the Season 4 meta.

Warzone’s best attachments received major nerfs in June 30 update

Warzone’s most popular weapon attachments received notable nerfs in the Season 4 June 30 update patch, and could shake up the meta.

Published

Warzone Pacific Season 4 received a plethora of balancing adjustments in the June 30 patch, with some of the best attachments in the game getting significant nerfs.

The June 30 Warzone Pacific patch brought a ton of weapon balancing changes in Season 4, including a nerf to the popular NZ-41, which the developers felt had become too overpowered over the last season.

Other weapons like the H4 BlixenMarco 5, and UGM-8 were also changed in the update. Warzone players will be encouraged to alter their usual loadouts as the best attachments have also been nerfed.

Warzone Pacific Season 4’s June 30 update patch included nerfs to the Lengthened ammo type, MX Silencer muzzle, and M1941 Handstop underbarrel. These attachments are popular choices on Assault Rifle loadouts.

The MX Silencer and Lengthened ammo type boost your weapon’s accuracy and bullet velocity respectively. The June 30 update gave both of these attachments received a 3% reduction in muzzle velocity.

Meanwhile, the M1941 Handstop underbarrel’s recoil control has been changed to 3.5% down from 4%. While this seems like a minor change, it can actually greatly affect your loadout’s effectiveness in combat.

Since the MX Silencer, M1941 Handstop, and Lengthened are all popular choices for multiple weapons, it’s extremely likely that these attachment nerfs are going to greatly impact Warzone players’ loadout builds.

While the update brought various nerfs to different weapons and attachments, it also featured buffs to Vanguard’s Warzone weapons, as the 3-LineKar98k, and Type 99 all received an increase in bullet velocity.

Warzone expert reveals genius trick to instantly get Loadout Drop

Getting a Loadout Drop early is key to surviving Warzone’s early game but there’s a way to get your loadout in a matter of seconds.

Getting your loadout as soon as possible is vital to winning in Call of Duty: Warzone and pro player IceManIsaac has revealed a genius trick to getting your loadout in seconds.

Loadouts are what sets Warzone apart from all of the other battle royale games. Getting your own custom weapon gives a massive advantage over those with ground loot, so getting a Loadout Drop as soon as possible is key to winning.

It can be tough to get your Loadout Drop in the chaos of the early game, but a clever strategy from streamer IceManIsaac can get your team a Loadout Drop and free UAV in seconds.

To instantly get a Loadout Drop in Warzone, all players need to do is land on a Top Secret Contract in Fortune’s Keep. This will starts a random Contract such as Supply Run, Scavenger, or a Bounty, and you’ll get a whopping $8,000 as well as a UAV.

IceManIsaac explained that the Supply Run won’t task you with traveling across the map like in Caldera, it’ll actually be pretty near, so you’ll be able to land on it in a matter of seconds. A loadout only costs $7500 dollars so you can buy the loadout straight away and have a free UAV to see any approaching enemies.

While doable in Solos, this strategy works best in squads. If one player picks up the Contract and the rest float in the air to complete the task, the process will be even quicker. Even if it’s a Bounty, all of the players can land on top of the target and it won’t matter if they die in the process because of the Resurgence mechanic.

Fortune’s Keep is pure chaos in the early game, so securing yourself a loadout before anyone else will be sure to set you up for success.
