Call of Duty: Warzone best weapons

Here are the current best weapons and loadouts you should be using in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2. We’ll keep this list updated regularly.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s meta changes quite often, with every new season bringing new weapons and balance updates to existing ones. With the release of the Black Ops Cold War x Warzone integration, many weapons have risen to the top.

To be the best, you should always be leveling up and using the top weapons in the game. The most powerful, consistent, and accurate ones are always front and center in the arsenal of the best players in the game.

Here are the best weapon loadouts you can run in Warzone Season 2.

10. – Diamatti – best pistol loadout in Season 2

Best Warzone Diamatti pistol loadout

You may be surprised to see Black Ops Cold War’s Diamatti on this list, but hear us out for a second. In any Ghost loadout, this pistol is king for up-close combat.

Instead of using them in the popular dual wield fashion, we’ve opted for just one in order to control the spray. With this in mind, 2 bursting enemies will be common – and efficient.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.2″ Task Force
  • Laser: Steady Aim Laser
  • Ammunition: Salvo 30 Round Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip: Dropshot Wrap

For this build, we’re going to want the best damage for range and of course, less flinch. This is where the Dropshot Wrap and 7.2″ Task Force Barrel will help us. In addition, we want speed and hip-fire accuracy, so the Salvo 30 Round Fast Mag and Steady Aim Laser will come in handy.

9. – DMR 14

Best BOCW DMR 14 Warzone loadout

While the DMR 14 terrorized Warzone back at the beginning of the Black Ops Cold War integration, it found its place after a few nerfs. While it isn’t as overpowered as it used to be, it’s still a well-rounded rifle for any expert marksman.

  • Muzzle: Agency Silencer
  • Barrel: 20.8″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 30 Round Mag

The signature DMR 14 build is still as reliable as ever. The 20.8″ Task Force barrel will give you superior range, coupled with the Field Agent Foregrip for better accuracy when under heavy fire. The 30 Round Mag will also give you more ammo, with no penalties.

8. M16

Best BOCW M16 Warzone loadout

The M16 is much like its AUG counterpart – although having more mobility, it lacks as much punch. In the right hands, this weapon is ultra-powerful.

So, if we see an AUG nerf, this may just be the next best thing. Here’s our choice of attachments:

  • Muzzle: Agency Silencer
  • Barrel: 15.9″ Strike Team
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag

Similar to the AUG, we’ve added the 15.9″ Strike Team Barrel for maximum damage at range, with the Field Agent Foregrip for recoil control. Since speed is the centerpiece of the M16’s appeal, we’ve added a Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag for the quick reloads.

7. Kilo 141

Kilo 141 Best Warzone Loadout

The Kilo 141 is the ol’ reliable of Warzone. It’s consistent at range, easy to use, and has low recoil. If you know someone who’s new to Warzone, or you’re not a fan of recoil yourself, this is your optimal weapon.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic (Can replace with Corp Combat Holo)
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The Kilo is all about range and stability. As a result, we’ve added the Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler barrel for max range and also threw on a Commando Foregrip for better recoil control while under fire. The 60 round magazine is also a great touch, ensuring players will never be short on ammo.

6. Bruen Mk9 – best LMG loadout in Season 2

Best Bruen Mk9

The Bruen is a heavy-hitting LMG, perfect for long-range and medium-range combat. Its 60 round magazine ensures you won’t run out of ammo fast, and you’ll always stay on target with how stable this weapon is under heavy fire.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Summit 26.8″
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mag
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Corp Combat Holo Sight

For a heavy weapon, the Bruen can be customized to be quick – while still hitting enemies hard. That’s why we added the Tac Laser and 60 Round Magazine, for fast aim down sight and mobility. Adding on an XRK Summit 26.8″ Barrel with the Corp Combat Holo Sight just seals the deal for maximum damage and sight at medium ranges.

5. CR-56 AMAX

CR-56 AMAX Best Warzone Loadout

Looking for a dominant medium-range Assault Rifle? Look no further than the CR-56 AMAX. Aim high for quick kills on foes. The VLK optic makes for easy targeting at long-range – just make sure you compensate for the high recoil. High risk, high reward.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic

The AMAX is all about control at range. To combat this, we’ve added the heavy-duty XRK Zodiac S440 Barrel and the Commando Foregrip to control heavy sprays.

This weapon hits best when hitting the upper-body, so we’ve added a VLK 3.0x Optic for easy view of hostiles.

4. MAC-10 – best SMG loadout in Season 2

MAC-10 Best Warzone Loadout

The MAC-10 is an ultra-powerful close-range machine, that even has some effectiveness at medium range. Like the FFAR, it has a fast fire rate with decent recoil. Master this SMG to be the most effective close-range fighter.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Round Drum
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock

For this build, we’re equipping the 5.9″ Task Force barrel for some additional damage at range, and SAS Combat Stock for a balance between strafe and aim down sight times. The Field Agent Grip also gives some solid recoil control when firing at enemies at range. You’d be surprised how effective the MAC-10 can be at a medium distance.

3. Kar98k – best Sniper loadout in Season 2

Best Kar98k Warzone Loadout

The Kar98k is the best Marksman Rifle in Warzone, by far. It has a near-instant aim-down-sight time, great range, and a highly useful Variable Zoom Scope. No matter your sniping playstyle, the Kar98k will work in almost any situation.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Variable Zoom Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

With the Kar98k, we’re focusing on quick shots and distance, so the Tac Laser and Singuard Custom 27.6″ barrel will be critical for our needs. The Monolithic Suppressor also adds a bit more range and bullet velocity.

2. AUG (BOCW) – best Tactical Rifle loadout in Season 2

BOCW AUG Warzone loadout

The AUG is a burst-fire beast capable of downing enemies in just 2 well-placed bursts. Be sure to aim for the head at range. Turning enemies into swiss cheese has never been easier. As long as you have the accuracy and trigger-discipline, this is your weapon.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.2″ Strike Team
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Drum
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip

For this build, we needed to focus on a balance between weight and control. The 45 Round Drum will give you the benefit of extra ammo, with no aim down sight penalty. We’ve also added the Field Agent Grip for less resistance when firing.

1. FFAR 1 – best Assault Rifle loadout in Season 2

FFAR best Warzone loadout

The FFAR is currently the fastest killing automatic weapon in Warzone. It has a fast fire rate, high damage output, but a ton of recoil that makes it best suited for close-range engagements.

Once you master the art of movement and recoil control, you’ll be able to destroy any enemy in mere seconds. If you’re skilled enough, you can outplay entire squads of enemies all by yourself. Here’s the best loadout:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.2″ Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag
  • Stock: Raider Stock

Attachments like the Field Agent Grip and Raider stock will ensure maximum strafe speed and recoil handling while under fire. We’ve also added a 21.2″ Ranger Barrel for bullet velocity at range.

Best Perks for COD: Warzone

Warzone E.O.D perk

To optimize your perks, we’re going to recommend the two-loadout strategy for any game. On the first loadout, your perk 2 should be Overkill to get you your two preferred weapons.

On the second loadout, pick up a loadout with Ghost to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors, or Restock to continuously replenish your lethal and tactical grenades. Here’s the perk rundown:

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

This has been our take for the best weapons currently available in Warzone’s meta. You can use all these weapons for high-kill games or slow-paced wins.

Best FARA 83 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

Season 3 of Warzone saw some major changes be made to the Fara 83 that will have players wanting to use its best possible loadout.

Published

Best Fara 83 Warzone Loadout Season 3

The FARA 83 Assault Rifle is one of the weapons that got major changes in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3, and you can make it a formidable force by using its best loadout.

Players will notice that the Season 3 update for Warzone made some major changes to a variety of weapons, including the powerful FARA 83. This assault rifle is based on the Galil and can deal some serious damage to its targets.

After you’ve unlocked it, you can equip a few select attachments and perks to make the weapon an absolute powerhouse during combat. Here is the best FARA 83 Assault Rifle loadout and class setup for Warzone Season 3.

Best Fara 83 Loadout Warzone Season 3

Best Warzone Season 3 FARA 83 loadout

The FARA 83 has an impressive rate of fire, high damage profile, and incredibly precise accuracy that makes it extremely deadly. Our loadout will boost these strengths while improving upon the recoil, effective damage range, and overall speed.

Best Fara 83 attachments

  • Muzzle: Gru Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.1″ Takedown
  • Laser: None
  • Optic: None
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Underbarrel: Foregrip
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 50 Rnd

We’ll start this loadout with the Gru Suppressor, which will help you avoid enemy detection on their radars, while also drastically increasing the damage range of this assault rifle. This will allow you to dish out heavy amounts of damage at further distances.

Best Fara 83 Loadout Warzone Season 3

The 18.2″ Takedown Barrel will improve both the Assault Rifle’s effective damage range. This helps prime the weapon for mid to long-range combat where you need to pick off enemies from a distance by having the largest damage increase of all of the gun’s available barrels.

You can use the KGB Skeletal Stock to increase your sprint to fire speed, ADS firing move speed, and aim walking movement speed to help you aim and fire with incredible speed which is perfect for close to mid-range combat scenarios.

The foregrip will give you the biggest boost in accuracy when it comes to the underbarrel attachments and will help you land more of your shots than without it.

We’ll complete this loadout by equipping the Spetsnaz 50 Rnd Mag so that you can take advantage of the weapon’s incredible fire rate and have enough ammo to take down multiple enemies before having to reload.

Best perks for Warzone FARA 83 class

You can combine a few useful perks with these attachments so that you’re prepared for anything that match will throw at you. You’ll be able to handle most surprises that you encounter in Warzone by selecting these.

best perks fara 83 warzone class season 3

Perk 1 – E.O.D

It doesn’t matter how skilled you are if you’re caught off-guard by foes carrying explosives. Other players will attempt to blow you up while you’re in a good position during battle, so you’ll want to equip E.O.D to survive.

This perk allows you to tank huge amounts of explosive damage while you have your armor equipped. While you’ll mostly be fighting in medium to long-range combat situations, it still helps to be prepared for any surprises.

Perk 2 – Overkill

Warzone matches can have a variety of different tactical requirements, so you can equip this perk which allows you to select two primary weapons from any category. This means that you’ll be able to keep guns that are ideal for different situations.

Perk 3 –Amped

In case an enemy is able to sneak up on you in close quarters, you’ll want to swap to your secondary weapon before they have a chance to eliminate you. This perk makes switching weapons almost instant, which can be the difference between victory and defeat.

That covers our class setup for this powerful AR. We also recommend carrying some Semtex grenades to dish out explosive damage C4 to enemy vehicles. The Heartbeat Sensor can help you detect nearby foes, so you can strategize better.

How to Unlock the Fara 83 in Warzone Season 3

Players can also unlock this assault rifle by going into Black Ops Cold War Zombies and killing 30 or more enemies consecutively without getting hit 25 times.

The FARA 83 is now one of the most impressive weapons in Warzone following the Season 3 update. However, there are other powerful loadouts that are available for players to use in this new period of content like PPSH, Swiss K31, and Grau that are more than suitable alternatives.

Original Verdansk map will not be playable again following Warzone nuke event

CoD: Warzone’s historic Season 2 nuke event means that the original version of Verdansk will never be playable ever again.

Published

cod warzone verdansk stadium

The destruction of Verdansk to rid the map of the Zombie invasion in Season 2 has caused some serious knock-on effects. It’s been confirmed that the original version of Verdansk will never be playable again in Warzone.

The Season 2 storyline of zombies setting up camp all over Verdansk finally culminated in a spectacular finale that saw Verdansk be transformed into a 1980s version of itself.

For weeks it was rumored that Raven Software was going to make some big changes to Warzone’s classic battle royale map, and that’s proven to be the case. Verdansk has been nuked, and it might sadden players to know that they will not be able to enjoy the first incarnation of Verdansk again.

cod warzone verdansk nuke

After a year of players dropping into Verdansk, it did feel like the right time to shake things up and make some substantial changes to the map.

It wasn’t too long into the Zombie invasion that players and popular streamers such as NICKMERCS started to think that it would ultimately lead to the map’s demise – and it did.

If you missed “The Destruction of Verdansk Part I”, players that took part were thrown into a normal game of Warzone, only, every POI was infected. The likes of Superstore and Train Station would have their respective radiation zones grow at an exponential rate.

If you died, you came back as a Zombie no matter what. Instead of the late-Season addition of temporarily turning into a Zombie, this version kept you infinitely spawning as one.

Whilst all this was going on, the “Level 4 containment protocol” warning was triggering, the containment levels were slowly rising, and the gas was closing in quicker than ever.

Even with the return of Juggernaut suits, the mode’s goal of exfiling was impossible as no one was meant to escape. It was the end of Verdansk as we knew it.

But it seems like this will be the end of Verdansk, this version anyway, forever as Raven Software has confirmed with us that the setup of Verdansk we’ve grown to love over the last year will never be playable in any form again.

Players will now be playing on Verdansk ’84, which features updated POIs, new locales based on the Black Ops series, and more enhancements for the world.

Hopefully, you were able to get on and enjoy the old Verdansk one final time before the reset, and now we can enjoy Season 3, and even look forward to Warzone’s future.
