Warzone Pacific stats prove Owen Gun is most underrated SMG

Stats are proving that Vanguard’s Owen Gun SMG is one of the most underrated weapons players can use in Warzone Pacific.

Published

Owen Gun Warzone Pacific

Vanguard’s Owen Gun has flown under the radar in Warzone Pacific but statistics from WZ Ranked show that the weapon has the second-best K/D amongst SMGs.

Since the MP40’s recent nerf, Warzone Pacific players turned to Vanguard weapons for a new close-range option on Rebirth Island and Caldera. Most players landed on the Welgun as the new SMG of choice.

Of course, the weapon that arrived with the mid-Season 1 update is an incredibly powerful option but you may be surprised to discover that the Owen Gun is right on its tail and looking to claim the top SMG spot.

Vanguard's Owen Gun SMG

The Owen Gun isn’t a particularly popular choice in Vanguard either with it being overshadowed by the MP40 and PPSH-41. However, it seems like the Owen Gun has finally earned some time in the spotlight.

According to WZ Ranked, the Owen Gun boasts a Warzone Pacific K/D ratio of 1.22 which ranks as the third-best overall weapon in Warzone as of January 24. Its main competitor in the Welgun is ranked number one with a K/D of 1.29 and the C58 splits the two with a K/D of 1.25

Call of Duty content creators have been enjoying what the Owen Gun has to offer and even though its slower-than-average fire rate may feel strange for an SMG, it has excellent damage range to compensate.

The Owen Gun has made up a ton of ground in recent months which may turn a few heads. Only a few short weeks ago the Owen Gun’s K/D was ranked 28th but it has recently shot up to third and may just take the top spot in the coming weeks.

During the same timespan, its pick ratio has also shot up from 0.4% to 1.3%. Pick ratio indicates how popular a Warzone weapon is and the MP40 is currently on top with 14.7%.

Fan-favorite Warzone weapon kills faster than the best Vanguard guns

An iconic MW Assault Rifle has returned for a second stint in the spotlight and it kills faster than the best Vanguard weapons in Warzone.

Published

on

Warzone Pacific Kilo

Despite there being over 40 new Vanguard weapons in Warzone Pacific, a fan-favorite Modern Warfare Assault Rifle is proving to be superior to its newest competition.

Since Vanguard weapons joined the pool of options in Warzone Pacific many top choices have come and gone. At first, it seemed like Vanguard weapons would dominate the battlefield, but now one forgotten MW weapon is reclaiming its throne as the top Assault Rifle option.

Warzone players who refuse to embark on the grueling journey of leveling up Vanguard weapons will be pleased to hear that this fan-favorite AR is making a significant comeback.

MW Kilo 141 AR

The Kilo 141 is proving that Warzone Pacific players don’t need Vanguard to compete with high-powered meta options. The iconic Assault Rifle from Modern Warfare certainly had a long stint in the spotlight as Warzone’s best AR before gradually fading away.

In a recent video Call of Duty content creator IceManIsaac proves that the fan-favorite AR is statistically superior to the best Vanguard weapons in certain situations.

Best Warzone Pacific Kilo 141 loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler Barrel
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

In the video, IceManIsaac analyzes the TTK of the Kilo 141 in comparison to Vanguard’s two best Warzone weapons in the STG44 and Bren. The stats show that when ADS maneuvering is taken into consideration, the Kilo has a lower TTK than the STG44 and Bren.

The experienced CoD veteran explains that the Kilo’s biggest weakness is damage dropoff that kicks in at extremely long distances of over 50 meters.

Considering Caldera’s terrain and the nature of the majority of gunfights, the Kilo won’t suffer from this weakness often which makes it one of the best ARs in Warzone Pacific.

Many Warzone Pacific players do not own Vanguard which makes leveling up Vanguard weapons in Warzone a troublesome task especially since loadouts arrive later in Warzone Pacific matches.

This meta Kilo option offers players a solution that allows them to maintain a competitive edge.

Best Cold War AK-47 loadout for CoD: Warzone Pacific Season 1

Here are the right Perks and attachments to create the best Black Ops Cold War AK-47 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Published

on

Warzone Pacific Cold War AK-47 loadout

The Cold War AK-47 is one of the most iconic weapons to arrive in Warzone, and even after Vanguard’s integration, it still remains a great option. Here are the attachments and perks to run to make the best Warzone Cold War AK-47 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Assault Rifles are a staple in Call of Duty, and the AK-47 is one of the most iconic weapons in Black Ops Cold War. You can use it to dish out some serious pain to your opponents at close and medium range.

Even with Warzone Pacific Season 1 well underway, with the mid-season update introducing a variety of changes, you can still use this weapon to cause some severe damage to foes.

We’ll go over the attachments and perks you should use to create the best Warzone Cold War AK-47 loadout.

Best Cold War Ak-47 loadout attachments

Best Warzone Cold War AK-47 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20” Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd

We’ll start the best Warzone Cold War AK-47 loadout off with the GRU Suppressor because of the sound suppression it offers in Warzone Pacific. Aside from keeping you hidden from foes, it will also boost the weapon’s damage range, vertical recoil range, and bullet velocity.

Next, we’ll equip the 20” Spetsnaz RPK Barrel to further improve the damage range and bullet velocity of the best Warzone Cold War AK-47 loadout. Plus, it actually helps with recoil control, so it is arguably the best barrel choice for fighting at range.

Then, the Spetsnaz Grip gives a solid extra boost to your horizontal and vertical recoil control when using the best Warzone Cold War AK-47 loadout. The Axial Arms 3x Optic will go well with the gun’s new precision. But, if you plan on using it at medium-range too, the Microflex LED is a solid choice.

Finally, we’ll cap off the loadout with the 45 Rnd to give the AK-47 plenty of ammo to take down multiple enemies. If you’re playing Quads, you could also use the Bakelite 60 Rnd, at the cost of ADS speed.

Best Perks to use with Warzone AK-47 class

CoD Warzone EOD perk
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

Your killstreaks can easily be ruined by enemy players that chuck grenades and other explosives at you. For that reason, we recommend equipping E.O.D to make you more resistant to explosive damage.

For your first loadout drop, you should select Overkill so that you can pair this formidable Assault Rifle with a Sniper Rifle. Then, collect the Ghost perk from your second loadout drop to hide from enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Finally, this AK-47 build is quite heavy so you should use Amped to increase your weapon swap speed and make sure that you have the right gun for each situation.

How to unlock the Cold War AK-47

Warzone Cold War AK-47

To unlock this AK-47 for Warzone use, you’ll need to reach Level 7 in Call of Duty’s battle royale or Black Ops Cold War, which can be done in no time at all.

Just hop into a few games and start grinding out your skillset until you get your hands on this powerful Assault Rifle.

Best alternatives to Cold War’s AK-47

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the AK-47, then we recommend going with the STG44 which is another powerful AR choice. Or, the Bren has also become very popular in the Warzone Pacific meta, standing out as a hard-hitting long-range LMG.
