LAPA SMG in Warzone The Haunting event

The LAPA SMG arrived with Warzone Season 6’s The Haunting event, and even though it’s far from the most popular weapon, stats from TrueGameData prove it to be an extremely underrated weapon.

Season 6 marks Black Ops Cold War’s final season and the last gun, the LAPA, joined the fray as part of The Haunting event. While perhaps not powerful enough in Cold War, new stats prove it to be the most underrated weapon in Season 6.

YouTuber and Warzone statistician TrueGamaData compared the LAPA with two of the best SMGs, the OTs 9 and PPSH-41, and, even though it’s only the 23rd most popular weapon, he discovered that it’s a “top tier” Season 6 SMG.

What makes the LAPA so interesting is that it has three barrels that change how it behaves. Each one has its benefits, and TrueGameData compared each of them to his favorite SMGs, the OTs 9 and PPSH-41.

TrueGameData used the default site to compare the LAPA’s time to kill with the OTs and PPSH-41, and the LAPA’s BR Compact barrel came out on top.

However, when hitting a combination of different body parts, true to real players’ aim, the OTs 9 is best at close-range. The LAPA does have more range, with the Rifled barrel having the best long-range TTK of the three SMGs.

Because of these stats, its damage profile puts it in an extremely competitive spot.

TrueGameData also compared the LAPA’s mobility with the OTs and PPSH and found that it has the fastest movement and ADS speed in the game. He said that these translate to the other mobility aspects, making it speedy across the board.

So if you’re looking for a speedy SMG, you can’t go wrong with the LAPA.

TrueGameData’s best LAPA loadout

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.9″ BR Compact
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Magazine: STANAG 50 Rnd

TrueGameData’s LAPA loadout is built around the 7.9″ BR Compact barrel, which gives a solid TTK at close range. The other attachments are standard for a Cold War SMG build, with a minor change.

He said that “the Iron Sights are terrible,” so you’ll want to use the Microflex LED instead. While this does leave out a mobility attachment, TrueGameData said that the gun is mobile enough that you can afford an Optic.


With the LAPA SMG boasting extremely competitive damage stats and the fastest mobility in the game, don’t be surprised if it starts climbing up the most popular weapons list as Season 6 marches on.

You can unlock the Sawtooth Melee Weapon in Vanguard and Warzone by reaching Tier 37 in the Season 1 Battle Pass. This is fairly simple and there are two ways for you to get this done.

The first method is the most straightforward and it involves you playing through multiple matches as you gradually progress through the Battle Pass. You can check out our guide on how to level up fast in Vanguard.

Alternatively, you can pay for a Tier-Skip bundle on day one to immediately progress through the first 20 Tiers of the Battle Pass. This will speed up the process and you’ll be able to get the Sawtooth much quicker.

The Sawtooth is the first Melee Weapon in the Vanguard Season 1 Battle Pass. Sewn with shark’s teeth along the club’s perimeter, the Sawtooth is capable of slicing up foes with great efficiency.

Warzone & Vanguard Season 1 has introduced the new Cooper Carbine, an Assault Rifle that excels in close-range combat. Here’s how you can unlock this weapon.

Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 brings a ton of new content for both games, with new weapons, multiplayer maps, operators, and the highly-anticipated Pacific Caldera battle royale map.

Season 1 will introduce five new weapons in total, with two guns and two melee weapons dropping straight away. Alongside the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle, players will also get their hands on the Cooper Carbine Assault Rifle.

While ARs usually work best at long range, the Cooper Carbine excels in close-quarters combat. Here’s how you can unlock the gun in Vanguard & Warzone Season 1.

Getting your hands on this assault rifle is extremely easy, as all you need to do is reach Tier 15 of the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass to unlock the Cooper Carbine.

That means you don’t need to complete any specific challenges, and can just play matches in either game to earn XP and level up your Battle Pass.

If you don’t want to wait, you can purchase the Premium Battle Pass and receive 20 Tiers immediately, but you can still choose not to and grab the Cooper Carbine for free.

As soon as you hit Tier 15 of the Battle Pass, the Cooper Carbine will immediately be added to your inventory. You’ll then be able to create loadouts with it in both Vanguard and Warzone.

The Cooper Carbine is a very interesting weapon. Despite being classed as an Assault Rifle, it functions best at short range, meaning it feels more like an SMG than anything else.

The good news is that getting your hands on this powerful weapon is very straightforward, and won’t require you to complete any frustrating challenges.

To unlock the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle, all you need to do is reach Tier 31 in the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass.

That means you can earn the right to wield the weapon just by playing games. If grinding for the weapon doesn’t sound like your thing, you can choose to purchase premium skips to avoid playing matches and unlock the Gorenko straight away.

As soon as you hit Tier 31, the sniper rifle will be immediately added to your arsenal, and you’ll be able to add it to any loadout in Warzone or Vanguard.

While the Gorenko does have a slow fire rate and strong recoil, its damage is the highest in its category, which means it could become a replacement for the always-popular Kar98k with the right attachments.

Before jumping into the major update, check out everything that’s coming in Vanguard’s Season 1 patch notes, or take a look at the best Warzone sniper rifles to see where this weapon will fit.
