Killing your enemies as fast as possible is key to winning gunfights in Call of Duty: Warzone, so here are the weapons with the lowest TTK following Warzone Season 5’s Reloaded update.
With Warzone having over 100 weapons to choose from, you need to choose your loadout wisely. There are several factors to consider, such as mobility, recoil, and range, but perhaps the most important factor is time-to-kill (or TTK).
The lower the TTK of your weapon, the better. This means you’ll be killing your enemy as fast as possible, giving you the edge in all of your gunfights. Warzone’s lowest TTK weapons are surprising, so we’re breaking down the fastest killing guns after Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.

Fastest killing close-range weapon in Warzone
Thanks to stats from Warzone weapons expert JGOD, we can see that the fastest killing close-range weapon is the Akimbo M19s. Wielded individually, the pistol isn’t worth your time, but with two equipped, it becomes a monster.
If you barrel stuff your opponents with the M19 with the Akimbo attachment, you can reach a TTK of only 467. This is the fastest of any weapon in the game, and your enemy will have no idea what hit them. However, the TTK starts to rise beyond 10 meters, so you want to be up close and personal to achieve the best TTK.
However, stats from another Warzone weapons tester, TrueGameData, has revealed that Modern Warfare’s MP5 is now the fastest killing SMG in the game. This is much more reliable than the M19s, so will be well-worth adding to your Season 5 loadouts.
Best low TTK M19 loadout
- Barrel: XRK V Extended
- Laser: 5mW Laser
- Trigger Action: Lightweight Trigger
- Ammunition: 32 Round Mags
- Perk: Akimbo
This is the best M19 loadout that gives the lowest TTK in Warzone Season 5. The XRK V Extended barrel provides slightly more range for the damage drop-off and the 5mW Laser keeps your hip-fire shots on target.
To increase the fire rate and hit that rapid TTK, you should use the Lightweight Trigger. And this will burn through your rounds fast, so the 32 Round Mags are a worthy addition.
Last, and most important, is the Akimbo attachment which doubles the M19s firepower.
Fastest killing long-range weapon in Warzone
The Akimbo M19 pistols have the lowest TTK in Warzone, but they’re only effective up to 10 meters. You’ll need a weapon to fight at a distance, so what’s the fastest killing long-range weapon in Warzone?
You may be surprised that it’s actually the FiNN LMG with the lowest long-range TTK in Warzone. At long range, the FiNN is able to take down a player in only 543ms. This is much faster than some of Season 5’s most popular weapons such as the Cold War AK-47 and Krig 6.
With the right build, you’ll be able to simply delete players at long range. And what makes it even better is that this TTK isn’t dependent on headshots – even when hitting all body shots, it will still kill just as fast.
Best low TTK FiNN LMG loadout
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: XRK LongShot Adverse
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
- Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
As pointed out in JGOD’s stats, it’s the Adverse barrel that transforms the FiNN LMG into the fastest killing weapon in Warzone. Combining the XRK LongShot Adverse and Monolithic Suppressor gives the weapon fast bullet velocity, and more importantly, low TTK.
Then after that, it’s about making sure you can stay on target. The Tac Laser increases ADS speed and reduces sway, while the Commando Foregrip significantly boosts recoil control. And lastly, the VLK 3.0x Optic has the cleanest sight of any Modern Warfare weapon, making it easy to spot and laser enemies.
Those are the two fastest killing weapons following Warzone Season 5 Reloaded! Future weapon balance changes will likely change the TTK meta.
We’ll keep this article updated with the fastest killing weapons. For now, check out our article on the best controller settings for Call of Duty: Warzone.

Warzone hackers bring flying cars to Caldera
Warzone’s infamous flying car exploit is back with a vengeance as hackers revived the hated cheat and brought it to Caldera.
After first appearing in Verdansk, hackers have brought flying cars to Warzone Pacific with an exploit that is being dubbed the “Harry Potter glitch.”
Although the RICOCHET anti-cheat has weeded out a significant number of hackers, running into players who abuse cheats in Warzone can still occur from time to time. The latest exploit that is running rampant across Warzone Pacific is one that gives vehicles the ability to fly.
Warzone players will be familiar with this particular exploit as it first appeared in Verdansk before players moved to Caldera. Now the flying cars are back to frustrate players who are simply trying to enjoy Warzone as intended.
After clips of hackers with damage disabled warmed the hearts of Warzone players earlier in the week, it seems the balance has been restored as hackers have found a way to score a point for their team.

To make matters worse, the flying car cheat looks much easier to control this time around. In the previous installment control over the flying vehicle seemed to be an issue but in Caldera, this isn’t the case.
As seen in the video above, a squad of players can easily take down targets from the advantageous position granted by the flying car. When combined with cheats for aiming, the flying car becomes an unstoppable force that makes hackers impossible to kill.
Although Raven has yet to respond to the new version of this classic exploit, hopefully, a quick fix is in the works so players won’t have to look to the sky in frustration much longer.

How to stop freezing at Warzone Buy Stations
Warzone players have been getting stuck at Buy Stations since the Pacific update but luckily, there’s an easy fix.
Warzone players have been repeatedly dying to a Buy Station glitch where the game locks them in place almost every time they open one. Luckily, there’s a simple way to avoid it happening to you.
Although Warzone players have been enjoying Vanguard’s weapons on the brand new map, the constant stream of bugs and glitches has been hampering the experience for many.
One of the most frustrating issues is the Buy Station freeze glitch, where Warzone completely freezes when players attempt to open Buy Station. Usually, Warzone comes back to life after about ten seconds, but sometimes it causes the game to crash completely.
However, there’s a surprisingly simple way to avoid the dreaded Buy Station freeze glitch.
How to avoid Warzone Buy Station freeze on Xbox, PlayStation & PC
As discovered by Call of Duty content creator ProReborn, don’t slide into Buy Stations or Loadout Drops as doing so will “crash or freeze your game.”
One player confirmed it worked for them, saying they “figured this out today.” Although there’s no guarantee it will work every time, it’s well worth trying out until Raven Software release an official fix.
It’s a force of habit for Warzone players to slide into Loadout Drops and Buy Stations to open them, but you’ll need to unlearn the habit for the time being as sliding will only get you stuck in place, forcing you to await your doom.
The next major Warzone update will be Season 2, which players are hoping will fix a ton of issues plaguing the game such as invisible skins, players redeploying with their loadout, and Xbox performance issues.
The Buy Station freezing glitch is on their Trello board as “under investigation,” so hopefully they get to the bottom of the issue soon.

How to turn off crossplay in Vanguard & Warzone Pacific
Here’s what you need to do in order to turn off Call of Duty’s Crossplay functionality in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 1.
While playing Call of Duty with your friends on different platforms can be fun, there is a risk of you encountering hackers and cheaters even after the launch of RICOCHET. You can avoid that by using our guide to turn off crossplay in Vanguard & Warzone Pacific Season 1.
Crossplay in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific is a feature that connects players across all platforms through an “Activision Account.” Players who do not opt-in to this system will be unable to play cross-platform across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
If you do have an Activision Account, you will be automatically entered into the crossplay player pool by default. If you feel like this isn’t for you, and you want the option to disable this, then follow our quick and easy guide.
How to turn off crossplay for Vanguard
- Log into Vanguard Multiplayer
- Navigate to ‘Settings’
- Go to the ‘Account & Network’ tab
- Change Crossplay from ‘On’ to ‘Off’
How To Turn off Warzone Pacific Crossplay
- Log into Warzone
- Go to the ‘Options’ section
- Navigate to the ‘Account’ tab
- Change Crossplay from ‘Enabled’ to ‘Disabled’
Once crossplay is disabled, you’ll only matchmake against players on your native platform. You can toggle crossplay back on at any time. We especially recommend having it on while queuing for Warzone.
Why turn off crossplay for Vangaurd & Warzone Pacific ?
Simply put, cheaters and hackers. If you’re a console-only player, you might run into a few from the PC platform. While RICOCHET has helped significantly reduce the number of hackers, running into a cheater can still occur with some cheat providers refusing to back down.
We strongly recommend keeping crossplay on to ensure the queue times stay short, we also understand that running into cheaters is not fun.
Unfortunately, if you’re on PC, turning off crossplay will significantly increase your matchmaking times. We do not recommend turning off crossplay unless you are on a console.
Why should I keep crossplay on?
If you’re wondering why you should keep crossplay on – first and foremost, interconnectivity. With crossplay enabled, you can play with Call of Duty friends on other platforms. If this is off, players on other platforms won’t be able to join your sessions and you won’t be able to join them.
Secondly, matchmaking times will be impacted if you turn off crossplay. More so on PC than other platforms, but the matchmaking pool you enter into on console will be against players with no Activision ID and other players who have turned off crossplay.
Lastly, connections. You’ll be entered into a more narrow pool of players, so this could also have a negative impact on your ping. Overall though, you should still be thrown into the best available games.
