JGOD Warzone Season 3 Loadouts

The meta has opened right up in Warzone Season 3 following the most recent weapon balance update, and JGOD has revealed his top 10 loadouts players will no doubt see success using going forward.

Season 3 of Warzone has seen plenty of changes in weapon meta and which guns reign supreme on Verdansk ’84 or Rebirth Island. The start of the new season saw the Fara 83 and XM4 take the place of the FFAR as the go-to secondary assault rifles, while the CR-56 AMAX and Krig rose to the top of long-range weapons.

However, the May 7, 2021 update for Warzone made a significant amount of balance changes to the weapons of the Call of Duty battle royale, with one of the biggest being a nerf to the CR-56 AMAX.

Following the AMAX nerf and other balance changes, Warzone statistics wizard JGOD has put together the 10 loadouts he believes will serve players the best when it comes to chasing victory.

Best Assault Rifles in Warzone: Every Season 4 Reloaded AR ranked

Assault Rifles are great all-rounders in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded, so here are Warzone’s ARs ranked and the best ones to use.

Published

Best assault rifles in warzone pacific

Assault Rifles continue to dominate Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, so we’ve placed every Assault Rifle into a ranked list and counted down the top ARs you can run in Caldera, Rebirth Island, and Fortune’s Keep.

Assault Rifles are a staple in Call of Duty. Capable of dealing severe damage at almost any range, they’re the go-to for most players. They’re especially prominent in Warzone for their versatility, and through the Gunsmith system, you can build them any way you like.

With every season and update, Warzone’s meta shifts. Raven Software nerfed the meta-dominating NZ-41 in the Season 4 Reloaded update, and a new weapon has claimed the top spot as a result.

Here’s a ranked list of every AR as well as a summary of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

Best Warzone Assault Rifles ranked list

Warzone Operator STG 44

This is our comprehensive list of every AR in Call of Duty: Warzone, and we’ve ranked them in ascending order to let you know which ones are worth using.

While there used to be an even distribution of Vanguard, Modern Warfare, and Cold War guns, you’ll find that Vanguard weapons make up the majority of the meta picks. However, some solid MW and Cold War guns make up the top 10 if you want to use them instead.

Here is every Warzone Assault Rifle in Pacific Season 4 Reloaded, ranked:

  1. KG M40
  2. Volk
  3. Cooper Carbine
  4. Vargo 52
  5. NZ-41
  6. STG44
  7. BAR
  8. M13
  9. Vargo-S
  10. XM4
  11. EM2
  12. Nikita AVT
  13. Cold War AK-47
  14. Automaton
  15. AS44
  16. C58
  17. RAM-7
  18. FARA 83
  19. QBZ-83
  20. Grau 5.56
  21. Kilo 141
  22. M4A1
  23. Krig 6
  24. CR-56 AMAX
  25. Itra Burst
  26. Grav
  27. FFAR 1
  28. AS VAL
  29. Groza
  30. Oden
  31. AN-94
  32. FN-SCAR
  33. FAL
  34. FR 5.56
  35. Modern Warfare AK-47

Best Warzone Assault Rifles

5. NZ-41

NZ-41 Assault Rifle in Warzone

It took several nerfs in a row to finally knock Vanguard’s NZ-41 Assault Rifle down the ranks. It absolutely dominated Warzone for a prolonged period, but following the Season 4 Reloaded update, it’s finally in a balanced state.

It remains a powerful weapon that most players shouldn’t have too much trouble controlling at long range. It’s an excellent weapon for Caldera’s wide-open areas where you can punish players from a distance.


4. Vargo 52

Vargo 52 in Warzone

Cold War’s Vargo 52 claims the fourth spot and it’s been a pillar of consistency since joining Warzone Pacific. The weapon has never been considered overpowered, but it has an excellent TTK that makes it a devastating Sniper support Assault Rifle.

As you may have guessed, Vanguard ARs have the Vargo 52 beat when it comes to long-range gunfights thanks to their magnified optics. However, very few Assault Rifles can compete with the Vargo when it comes to a medium-range gunfight.


3. Cooper Carbine

Best Warzone Pacific cooper carbine loadout

The Cooper Carbine has always been a top choice thanks to its high fire rate and low recoil, and it’s remained a great selection for medium-range fights.

The Cooper’s bullet velocity isn’t the greatest, so you won’t be beaming players across Caldera, but take it into Fortune’s Keep or Rebirth Island and you’ll have a fantastic Assault Rifle in your hands. Thanks to a broken attachment discovered in Season 4 Reloaded, the Cooper Carbine is now considered one of the best ARs around.


2. Volk

Volk in Warzone

This may come as a shock to some, but Vanguard’s Volk Assault Rifle is one of the best weapons in Warzone. Its relatively low pick rate of 0.62 reveals that the majority of players continue to ignore the weapon.

However, if you’re looking for a medium-range Assault Rifle for Rebirth Island or Fortune’s Keep, there are no better options than the Volk.

This is the third Assault Rifle on the list that isn’t meant to be used for incredibly long-range gunfights. Instead, an LMG like the UGM-8, or the following weapon on our list is probably your best bet for a long-range weapon in Season 4 Reloaded.


1. KG M40 – Best Assault Rifle in Warzone

KG M40 assault rifle in Warzone

Warzone players love a low-recoil Assault Rifle and the KG M40 has barely any to deal with. While it doesn’t have the most incredible stats, the KG M40 is so easy to use that you’ll have no trouble landing shots.

The KG M40 has high bullet velocity and it deals a ton of headshot damage, but it’s held back by its low TTK when hitting body shots. As expected, with the NZ-41 receiving a significant nerf, this Assault Rifle claimed the top spot and it’s currently the most popular weapon in Warzone.

Bring any of these ARs into Caldera in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded and you’ll find yourself using some of the best Warzone Assault Rifles in Call of Duty’s battle royale.

Warzone Titanium Trials Endurance mode explained: Rules & rewards

Here’s everything you need to know about Warzone’s Titanium Trials Endurance mode, including all of the rules and rewards.

Warzone Operators firing weapons

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded features the new Titanium Trials Endurance mode and here’s everything that you need to know about it, including its rules and rewards.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded is going out with a Terminator-themed bang after the Titanium Trials mode went live on August 11. This hardcore mode increases the value of armor plates and rewards the best players with free items such as the Ultra Weapon camos.

With the rise of the machines taking place in Warzone, players will need to counter this new threat in the brand-new Titanium Trials Endurance mode, and we’ll go over everything that you need to know about it.

Warzone Titanium Trials Endurance rules

Warzone’s Titanium Trials increases the maximum base armor threshold on Caldera to 300 hit points to simulate a Terminator model’s toughness. Health regeneration takes longer to restore, making this a high-skill and high TTK game mode.

You’ll start the game with a Self-Revive Kit and will be able to pick up the Tempered Perk as ground loot more frequently to repair armor. The mode’s custom-built loot table includes rare Redacted Weapons that pack a more significant punch than regular loadout guns.

Here’s a breakdown of the rules:

Player health & armor

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded’s Titanium Trials boosts player health up to 400, with 300 of that made up from armor plates. This means that Operators have only 100 HP, making for a quick death once your armor’s gone.

To make things more difficult, health regeneration has been slowed down. But, the Tempered Perk can be found more often to allow you to plate up faster.

Player count & map

Titanium Trials mode takes place on Warzone’s Caldera, with a maximum player count of 152. The mode will be played in Quads so make sure to bring some friends if you hope to get 20 wins and unlock the Skynet camo.

Loadout costs & redacted weapons

The cost of loadouts will be much higher at the beginning of a Warzone Titanium Trials match and will gradually decrease with each circle collapse.

However, if you haven’t found enough cash to buy your loadout and get the best weapons, then you can find one of the Redacted Weapons which has even more attachments.

Warzone Titanium Trials Endurance rewards

If you want to get yourself some cool rewards then you can try completing eight different challenges in the Titanium Trials Endurance event during Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

Warzone’s Titanium Trials Endurance event is live, offering the best players unique rewards such as Terminator-themed weapon camos. You’ll need to win as many as 20 games to unlock all of the rewards, so here’s how to win Titanium Trials including the best weapons and some handy tips.

Despite Warzone being around since March 2020, it’s the only major battle royale game not to include some form of ranked mode. The developers confirmed they’re working on it, but instead, they include hardcore modes such as Iron Trials and the new Titanium Trials.

Titanium Trials went live on August 11 as part of the Season 4 Reloaded update, bringing Terminator-themed gameplay to Caldera. This mode is unique in that it rewards players for their skill rather than tedious challenges.

You’ll need to win four games if you want to complete the event challenges, and 20 in total to unlock the Ultra Skynet camo. Here’s everything you need to win in Warzone’s Titanium Trials.

Best weapons to use in Warzone Titanium Trials

Tips & tricks to win Titanium Trials in Warzone

Get loadout as early as possible

Titanium Trials is unique in that there are no free loadout drops, so you’ll need to rack up as much cash as possible in the early game and buy your loadout as soon as possible. The ground loot weapons pale in comparison to the weapons listed above, so you’ll be giving yourself a huge advantage by buying the loadout early.

We recommend landing somewhere far away from the plane’s line where you’ll be uncontested and can get a loadout before playing out the rest of the match.

But, the loadout drop price will keep falling as the match progresses so don’t worry if you can’t grab one straight away.

Watch for Self-Revives

Self-Revive Kits are everywhere in Warzone’s Titanium Trials, as every player will spawn with one — even after coming back from the Gulag.

When fighting, just keep in mind that the player you have knocked most likely has a Self-Revive, so don’t count them out of the fight. Finish them off with your gun or a Throwing Knife if possible, but if you can’t, keep an eye on where you knocked them in case they re-peek the angle.

Keep plating up during fights

Warzone player fitting armor plate

With Titanium Trials being a Terminator-themed mode, armor plates count for much more of your total health. Your base health is only 100 HP and armor makes up a further 300 HP. With how important armor is, just putting on a single plate during a fight will offer a huge advantage.

If you’re fighting at range, take any second you can to re-fill your armor plates. This is especially useful if you find the Tempered Perk on the ground, as each plate gives 150 HP. Players won’t expect your health to be so full, and you may catch them out in the open as they push up.

Play with friends

Warzone’s Titanium Trials is Quads only, and playing with randoms is always a gamble. If possible, playing with friends will significantly raise your chances of winning.

Random players will often leave immediately after dying, or just want to do their own thing. Playing as a close-knit team is a sure-fire way of securing the victories needed to unlock all of the Ultra Camos.


You’ll only have until August 24 to get all of the Titanium Trials wins, and then Season 5 will kick off immediately after, bringing new weapons, and classic CoD villains if leaks are to be believed.
