Call of Duty: Warzone best loadouts

Running the best loadouts in Warzone Season 4 can be the difference between victory and defeat, so we’ve put together the best weapons and attachments to give you the edge on Verdansk ’84.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s meta changes often, with every new season bringing new weapons and balance updates to existing ones. Warzone Season 4 significantly buffed Assault Rifles, completely changing the AMAX-heavy meta of Season 3.

Season 4 has the best weapon balance we’ve seen since before Cold War’s integration in Season 1, so there are now many viable weapons. However, some stand slightly above the rest, so we’re counting down the weapons you should be using this season.

Here are the top 10 weapons and their attachments, as well as the perks, you can run in Warzone Season 4.

10. Grau 5.56 – Best ‘Fully Loaded’ loadout in Season 4

Best Warzone fully loaded grau
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags
  • Perk: Fully Loaded

Every Warzone player should have a ‘Fully Loaded’ class at the ready. After dropping in from the Gulag, you’ll be able to pick up a weapon with maximum ammo straight away so you’re instantly ready to go.

The Grau 5.56 doesn’t suffer from missing an attachment, making it the perfect choice for a Fully Loaded class. With the cleanest iron sights the game has to offer and minimal recoil, everyone should have a Fully Loaded Grau.

9. CR-56 AMAX

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

Looking for a dominant medium-range Assault Rifle? Look no further than the CR-56 AMAX. Although the AMAX has seen several nerfs over the last few updates, Raven Software haven’t nerfed it into the ground.

Using the classic build with the Monolithic Suppressor, Zodiac barrel, and VLK 3.0x Optic, you’ll still be able to outgun most other weapons.

8. C58

Best Warzone C58 loadout
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd

New to Warzone Season 4, the C58 has already proved itself to be an extremely powerful option. Although having a low fire rate, with the right attachments, it becomes a laser beam at range.

We’ve built this C58 to maximize its accuracy and power, meaning you’ll have no issue beaming enemies over long distances. Fans of the Oden or the AMAX are sure to enjoy this new AR loadout.

7. AK-47 (Cold War)

Best Cold War AK-47 loadout
  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd

The AK-47 is famed for dealing high damage but being notoriously difficult to control. However, a buff to Cold War’s barrels Cold War Season 4 has made its recoil much more manageable.

Whether using it for long-range fighting or as a versatile Sniper support weapon, the AK-47 is one of the best weapons you can use in Season 4. We’ve built this Assault Rifle to be flexible across any range, but you can opt for a 3x Scope and Spetsnaz Grip if you’re looking to beam enemies at distance.

6. Swiss K31 – Best Sniper Rifle loadout in Season 4

best Warzone Swiss K31 loadout
  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 24.9″ Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

Raven Software has been working hard to bring Cold War’s Sniper Rifles in line with Modern Warfare’s, which has allowed the Swiss K31 to rise to the top. If you’re used to the Kar98k, you may prefer the rapid ADS speed of this Swiss loadout.

The only thing holding back the Swiss K31 compared to the Kar98k is its reticle and slightly lower bullet velocity.

5. MP5 (Cold War) – Best SMG loadout in Season 4

best Warzone CW MP5 loadout
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd Drum
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

Cold War’s MP5 is the go-to SMG for Aydan, Warzone’s top earner, and with the right attachments, it’s by far the best choice.

This build takes advantage of its already high mobility making it the perfect choice for players looking to get in players’ faces. Aside from the Suppressor and the 50 Rnd Drum, every attachment is designed to increase your speed. If you struggle with controlling the recoil, you can swap the Bruiser Grip for the Field Agent Grip.

4. XM4

Best Warzone XM4
  • Muzzle: Suppressor
  • Barrel: 13.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

While the XM4 has always been a strong weapon, buffs to the Task Force barrel have made it one of the best options in Warzone Season 4.

Being perhaps the most versatile Assault Rifle in the game, the XM4 will suit any loadout or playstyle. This build is for Sniper support, but with the Task Force’s buff to recoil control, you’ll have no issue taking out enemies at medium range.

3. Kar98k – Best Marksman Rifle loadout in Season 4

Best Kar98k Warzone Loadout
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

The Kar98k has been a popular choice throughout the entirety of Warzone’s life because it can be used in any situation. Whether going for insane long-shots or quickscoping up-close, you can’t go wrong with this Marksman Rifle.

It has a near-instant aim down sight time, great range, and very little idle sway. No matter if you’re going for high kill games or tactical wins, the Kar98k is the perfect weapon.

2. FARA 83 – Best Assault Rifle loadout in Season 4

Best Warzone FARA 83 loadout
  • Muzzle: Suppressor
  • Barrel: 16.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd

After changes to Cold War weapon barrels in the Season 4 update, the FARA 83 has become a long-range monster.

With high damage and low recoil, the FARA 83 is extremely easy to use. The Axial Arms 3x scope takes away any challenge you’ll have in hitting faraway targets and the STANAG 60 Rnd magazine is enough rounds to take out a whole team. You can opt for the GRU Suppressor if you want some more range, but the regular Suppressor offers a good balance between range and speed.

Assuming no other changes come with the promised adjustment to the MG 82, the FARA 83 will likely be Warzone’s next meta weapon.

1. MG 82 – Best LMG loadout in Season 4

Best Warzone MG 82 loadout
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 16.4″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition: Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

Warzone Season 4 Battle Pass’ MG 82 LMG quickly caught the attention of the community, with there being calls for it to be nerfed within hours of its arrival. Raven has confirmed it will be receiving a nerf, but until that happens, it’s Warzone’s best loadout.

With these attachments, it has next to no recoil and an insanely fast fire rate. Combined, this gives it the fastest time to kill in the game. These attachments take advantage of its lack of recoil and counteract

With it being nerfed soon, enjoy the MG 82 while you can.

Best Perks for COD: Warzone

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

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 grab your two preferred weapons, e.g the FARA 83 and MP5.

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.

Surviving explosives is a necessity, so E.O.D is the best perk for the first slot. And for Perk 3, Amped will allow you to rapidly switch weapons.


Warzone Season 4 has the most balanced meta we’ve seen in a long time. While these are our top 10 weapons, there are plenty of other viable options you can have fun while using in Verdansk ’84.

Warzone players call for devs to remove stuns and other tacticals from Gulag

Recent discussion in the Call of Duty: Warzone community has focused on players wanting stuns and other tactical equipment removed from the Gulag.

Warzone Stun Grenade Gulag

Members of the Call of Duty: Warzone community have been calling for the developers of the battle royale to remove stun grenades and other tactical equipment from the Gulag.

One of the features that have separated Warzone from other battle royale games has been the Gulag which allows players who have been eliminated from a match to fight for a chance to respawn and get back into the fight.

Players must fight with random loadouts in the Gulag that includes a weapon and various lethal and tactical equipment.

However, recent discussion in the Call of Duty community has focused on how many players would like to see the game developers remove stun grenades and other pieces of tactical equipment from Gulag loadouts.

The recent discussion around stuns and other tactical items being available for players to use in the Gulag was brought into the spotlight on the official Warzone subreddit by community member garymc88, who posted an image displaying their displeasure and frustration over stun grenades being in the Gulag.

This post soon had a great deal of communication amongst community members, as many other players agreed with the idea that stun grenades and other tactical grenades should not be in Gulag loadouts, as they allow players to get easy wins thanks to what many players feel is the overpowered nature of stun grenades and other tactical items.

Stuns and other tactical items have been in Gulag loadouts since the Call of Duty battle royale was first released in 2020.

It remains to be seen if Raven Software will indeed ever remove these items from the Warzone Gulag.

However, the developers of the high-profile game have made plenty of major changes to how things work in Warzone in the past, so it would not be extremely shocking to see the developers respond to this community request and take these items out of Gulag loadouts.

For more Warzone, check out the best loadout you should be using for the powerful Fara 83 Assault Rifle in Season 4, and stay tuned for future news and guides.

Warzone players call for devs to add permanent Rebirth Island playlists

Rebirth Island has become a popular map for Warzone players, but the community is calling for permanent playlists like Verdansk.

Published

Warzone Rebirth Island

Rebirth Island is one of the maps Call of Duty: Warzone can battle on, but players have begun to call for the developers of the battle royale to make permanent playlists for the popular map.

The integration between Black Ops Cold War and Warzone saw Rebirth Island become a playable map for the Call of Duty battle royale.

It has become a popular pick for players as of late, as many community members enjoy Rebirth Island’s faster pace and action-packed nature.

However, a major point of frustration for players has been the lack of permanent playlists for Rebirth Island, as the game’s developers consistently change the available playlists instead of having a static set in the same way that Verdansk does.

The discussion around the desire for Raven Software to implement permanent playlists to Warzone for Rebirth Island was thrust into the spotlight when the most recent playlist update for the battle royale took away Resurgence Quads and replaced it with Resurgence Trios.

Community member LegionofGrixis took to the official subreddit for Warzone and started a thread where they stated their frustration over the fact that the developers constantly change the Rebirth Island playlists and how Trios are less favored by many Warzone players compared to Quads.

This sentiment was shared by popular Warzone content creator JGOD who had a simple statement on the topic.

There is no doubt that players who primarily play on Rebirth Island would be excited to see a permanent set of playlists that do not ever change be added to the Black Ops Cold War map.

It remains to be seen if the developers of the Call of Duty battle royale will ever implement this feature, but we will be sure to inform you and update this piece if permanent playlists are added to the Rebirth Island map for Warzone.

For more Warzone, check out the best loadout you should be suing for the powerful Fara 83 Assault Rifle, and stay tuned for future news and guides.

Season 4 brought a whole host of major weapon buffs and nerfs to the world of Warzone, with some of the most significant changes coming to the barrels for Black Ops Cold War Assault Rifles.

These changes have helped boost weapons like the Krig 6 and the FARA 83 to be top-tier long-range weapons that will mow down enemies with ease in CoD: Warzone. The FARA has become an absolute monster in Warzone Season 4, with NICKMERCS offering his unbeatable loadout.

While this Assault Rifle was on the receiving end of some nerfs in Season 4 Reloaded’s massive weapon balancing update, it is still a very formidable weapon for players to use.

  • Muzzle: Gru Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 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.

The 18.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel will improve both the Assault Rifle’s effective damage range, horizontal recoil control, vertical recoil control, and bullet velocity. 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 and recoil control of all of the gun’s available barrels.

You can use the Axial Arms 3x to have a very clear and precise view of the battlefield and help improve your accuracy at farther ranges.

The Spetsnaz Grip 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. Thanks to the boost, it provides your vertical and horizontal recoil control.

We’ll complete the best Warzone FARA 83 loadout by equipping the Spetsnaz 60 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

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

It doesn’t matter how skilled you are with the best Warzone FARA 83 loadout 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 and protect your plates.

Warzone matches can have various tactical requirements, so you can equip Overkill 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.

You can then snag Ghost from a second loadout drop to keep yourself hidden from enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

If an enemy can 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.

How to unlock the FARA 83

You can unlock this Assault Rifle by getting 2 headshot kills in 15 different matches while using Assault Rifles in Cold War Multiplayer or Warzone.

Once you do either of these challenges, you will have the weapon available to use in the popular Call of Duty battle royale and make the best Warzone FARA 83 loadout.

Best alternatives

The FARA 83 is now one of the most impressive weapons in Warzone following the Season 4 update. But it’s very SMG-like, and if you want something a bit more rapid, then Warzone has some fabulous SMGs: MAC-10, LC10, PPSH-41, AK-74u, and Bullfrog.
