Best Warzone An-94 Loadout

The AN-94 is a unique and accurate Assault Rifle in Call of Duty: Warzone, so we’ve put together the attachments and perks to make the best Warzone AN-94 loadout for Season 5.

What makes the AN-94 so unique in Warzone is its ‘hyperburst’ feature. When firing the AN-94, your first two shots will be a rapid burst with no recoil, and then the gun will continue to shoot fully automatic.

If you land those first two shots, you’ll begin the fight with a massive blow of damage. Then you can follow up with accurate shots.

We’ve put together the attachments and perks to maximize this Assault Rifle‘s potential with the best Warzone AN-94 loadout for Season 5.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: AN-94 Factory X-438mm
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Casket Mags

The best Warzone AN-94 loadout is the meta build for the Call of Duty battle royale with attachments to vastly increase its damage and accuracy over distance, making it perfectly suited for medium-long range engagements.

First, we’ve added the Monolithic Suppressor. This is the perfect complement to any Warzone weapon as it vastly increases the weapon’s range while also keeping your shots hidden from the radar and mini-map.

To further increase the best Warzone AN-94 loadout power, the AN-94 Factory X-438mm barrel will increase your bullet velocity, making far-off targets easier to track and hit.

With these attachments for long-distance engagements, you’ll need a scope to match. The VLK 3.0x Optic is perfectly suited for the fights you’ll be getting into with the AN-94, as it gives you a clear picture of what’s ahead and provides optimal magnification.

To make sure you’re landing these long-range shots, the Commando Foregrip will be a huge help in keeping the AN-94 under control.

Pull back a little on your mouse or thumbstick while shooting, and your recoil will be almost non-existent.

And finally, to allow you to keep firing and finish off enemies before they can self-revive, the 60 Round Casket Mags will give you all of the ammunition you need to take down multiple targets when using the best Warzone AN-94 loadout.

Best perks to use with Warzone AN-94 class

  • Perk 1 – E.O.D.
  • Perk 2 – Overkill/Ghost
  • Perk 3 – Amped

While the best Warzone AN-94 loadout is effective at range, you’ll often find yourself using it in medium-range engagements.

In these fights, players will often chuck explosives your way to give themselves the upper hand. With E.O.D equipped, you’ll be able to tank an onslaught of rockets and grenades.

The AN-94 will struggle in close-quarters fights, so you’ll want to carry an SMG for pushing up to enemies. Overkill will allow you to take both the AN-94 and an SMG of your choosing.

Then you can get Ghost from another loadout to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

And for your third perk, Amped is the best choice. Your weapons will swap faster, speeding up your mobility significantly, so you’re never caught out while waiting for your Operator to switch guns.

Most recent AN-94 buffs and nerfs

The AN-94 Assault Rifle has not been on the receiving end of any buffs or nerfs recently. However, with Raven Software having shown it is still working on changes for Modern Warfare weapons like the MP5, it would not be surprising to see this weapon get some buffs or nerfs in the future.

We will update this section with new buffs or nerfs for the AN-94 in Warzone if they are ever applied.

How to unlock the AN-94

Players who would like to use the best Warzone AN-94 loadout will need to unlock the Assault Rifle first to do so. Those interested in unlocking this weapon will need to get 2 hipfire kills using Assault Rifles in 7 different matches in either Warzone or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Best Alternatives

If you are not feeling the best Warzone AN-94 loadout, the Krig 6 and Fara 83 are both excellent alternatives that provide high accuracy and devastating power for players who enjoy using Assault Rifles.

Warzone players call for Raven to steal exciting Apex Legends feature

Warzone players are calling for the developers to add a feature seen in Apex Legends to improve the player experience.

Warzone players are calling for Raven Software to add a certain feature to Warzone that is available to players in Apex Legends.

Since Vanguard’s integration, Warzone has been receiving a lot of stick, not just over the bugs and issues, but also the new map, Caldera, which is supposedly receiving some changes soon.

Although players were seemingly looking forward to the prospect of a new battle royale map for Warzone Pacific, there’s clearly a lot that players would like to see improve, with NICKMERCS recently sharing his opinion on the matter.

Now, players are calling for a feature from Apex Legends that may alleviate player frustrations when it comes to the map.

Reddit user duffwardo posed a question in the Warzone subreddit that asks: “Would adding timed map rotations into Warzone improve the game?”

The post has an image attached showing Verdansk ’84, the original Verdansk map, and Caldera side by side suggesting that these maps would be in rotation for the battle royale.

This is a feature that is already present in Warzone’s battle royale competitor Apex Legends. In Apex, battle royale maps rotate every hour or so to keep the game fresh and exciting.

This means that players aren’t just fighting in the same locations again and again, and they get to experience some variation when the map rotates. It seems this is something Warzone players would like as well, especially those who miss Verdansk, as one player in the comments wrote:

“That would be great so I could skip Caldera every time its in rotation, like everyone else would. Everyone wants Verdansk back.”

The major difference is that Apex Legends has four maps to rotate between and will sometimes take a map away for a whole season and then bring it back to make it feel even more refreshing.

Warzone really only has two maps, Caldera and Verdansk. As one comment points out, it may be pointless to have both Verdansk and Verdanks ’84 due to their likeness: “I see no point rotating between verdansk and verdansk 84, one or the other but preferably OG verdansk.”

This probably won’t be added to Warzone due to the sheer size that it would make the game, especially as it would likely cause even more bugs and issues than already present.

Perhaps this is something we will see for the reported Warzone 2, which is set to be a completely new battle royale game.

Warzone January 26 update patch notes: Buy Station freeze fix, Xbox improvements, more

Warzone Pacific Caldera Peak drop spot

The Warzone January 26 update brings a variety of bug fixes and improvements to the game, including a partial fix for the dreaded Buy Station freezing bug.

Warzone has been going through a pretty rough period when it comes to bugs, exploits, and performance issues. Players have been complaining about a variety of things including the Buy Station freezing glitch and, more recently, invisible guns in the Gulag.

Since the delay of Season 2, the devs promised to work harder on improving the experience for players, and it seems that’s what this Warzone January 26 update is all about.

Warzone Buy Station freezing improvements

While this wasn’t explicitly in the patch notes for this update, Raven Software took to Twitter to let players know about “major improvements” to players freezing at Buy Stations.

Although the bug is seemingly still in the game, Raven have explained that the “frequency” of this issue should be reduced for the time being.

As it is still an issue, we expect to see more improvements and fixes for this bug in a future update.

CoD Warzone 2: Leaks, rumors, platforms & release window

Activision are reportedly developing Warzone 2, so here’s everything we know about the rumored sequel to CoD’s battle royale.

Call of Duty Warzone 2

While Call of Duty: Warzone has just undergone its huge Pacific overhaul, there are reports that Activision are developing ‘Warzone 2.’ Here’s everything we know about Warzone 2, the rumored sequel to CoD’s hit battle royale.

Call of Duty: Warzone will soon hit its third year, and the game has changed significantly since its March 2020 release. Every weapon from Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard have arrived, Verdansk was nuked and given a 1980’s overhaul, and now the game takes place in the Pacific.

But it appears that Activision are looking at moving the battle royale title on further, with Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier reporting that “a new iteration of Call of Duty Warzone” is in the works.

Here’s everything we know about Call of Duty: Warzone 2.

What is Call of Duty: Warzone 2?

Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is the rumored sequel to CoD’s hit battle royale, where it’s reported to be “a completely new game” with “no past weapon integrations.”

Warzone’s sequel was first reported by Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier and corroborated by well-known industry insider Tom Henderson.

When could Warzone 2 release?

Schreier reported that Warzone 2 is on track for a 2023 release, which puts it at three years after Warzone’s original launch.

There’s no way of knowing whether it will be attached to CoD 2022 (believed to be titled Modern Warfare II) similar to how the original Warzone was released as part of Modern Warfare, or whether it will launch alongside CoD 2023 at the end of the year.

Warzone 2 platforms

According to Tom Henderson, Warzone 2 will only be on current-gen and PC, which means it will release on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.

He described it as a “completely new game for better hardware,” so it will likely take full advantage of PC and current-gen console’s power.

We would expect improved visuals, and maybe even the highly-requested FOV slider on consoles.

We’re completely in the dark about what Warzone 2’s gameplay will be like, but Henderson said that there will be “no past weapon integrations etc.”

So it seems that Warzone 2 will be a clean slate, only taking in weapons from the current CoD title or having its own separate weapon pool.


Microsoft have announced they’re in the process of buying CoD publishers Activision Blizzard, so you can also check out the five ways the deal could change Call of Duty forever.
