JGOD Warzone Season 3 easiest loadout

Getting the best Warzone weapons to work right isn’t always a simple task for players, but with JGOD’s recommendation for the easiest loadout to use in Season 3, your results are sure to improve.

If you’re struggling to adapt to the various weapon buffs and nerfs that arrived throughout Warzone Season 3, JGOD has shared his thoughts on a potential go-to loadout that is the easiest to use.

While Warzone players can choose from extremely powerful weapons, sometimes the weapons that deal the most damage are difficult to tame. If you’re struggling to control recoil in the battle royale, using JGOD’s recommended easiest loadout should lead to better results in Season 3.

While Vanguard ARs took a backseat to Cold War ARs throughout Season 2, the changes introduced in Season 3 have made the former viable again. The Automaton was always an easy weapon to control but with its minimum damage slightly increased, it now boasts a respectable TTK.

Meanwhile, in terms of close-range options, the Owen Gun, Welgun, and Armaguerra have asserted their dominance over the SMG class by maintaining the top three K/Ds in Warzone for some time now. Of the bunch, JGOD believes that the Armaguerra is the easiest to utilize.

JGOD Automaton & Armaguerra Warzone loadout

Automaton

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: ZAC 600 BFA
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Stock: Anastasia Padded
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 75 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

Armaguerra

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Botti 315mm CII
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Imerito SA Folding
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 9mm 60 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Quick

Of course, you’ll be using the Overkill Perk to run both weapons in tandem for close-range and long-range encounters. What’s great about this easy-to-use loadout is that it works well on either Caldera or Rebirth Island.

When speaking of the Automaton, JGOD emphasizes how simple long-range gunfights can prove to be, “it’s really easy to use and pretty much almost anyone can shoot it straight if you have some basic recoil control fundamentals.”

Not only do both weapons naturally boast a friendly recoil pattern, but the attachments chosen by JGOD will focus on improving aiming stability and recoil control even further.

The important thing to note about the Armaguerra is that it doesn’t fall into the trap of sacrificing mobility to increase recoil. The fact that the Armaguerra is easy to use without having to sacrifice recoil is why JGOD recommends using it: “This thing doesn’t have a ton of recoil, it shoots straight, fairly easy to use, but the mobility is pretty good on it as well.”

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.

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 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.

Grotto POI in Warzone Fortune's Keep map

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.
