Top 10 Warzone weapons

Call of Duty: Warzone Season’ 4s most popular weapons and their attachments have been revealed, so we’re counting down the top 10 loadouts as of July 27.

As is standard for Warzone, the meta is constantly changing. Weapons such as the FARA 83 have dominated Season 4 so far, but with the Reloaded update, that all changed. Warzone’s devs have explained how they’re trying to lower time to kill across the board to increase the skill gap, so we’ve seen Assault Rifles and SMGs enter the meta again.

Thanks to WZRanked.com, we can see Warzone Season 4’s most popular weapons, so we’re counting down the top 10, along with the most popular attachments.

10. MP5 (Cold War)

Best Warzone Cold War MP5 loadout

Cold War’s MP5 was many top players’ go-to SMG in Warzone Season 4 but has slightly dropped down the rankings since July 14’s Season 4 Reloaded update.

However, it’s still an excellent choice for a close-range SMG, being only slightly worse than the more popular MAC-10 and Modern Warfare version. In the open meta of Season 4, the negligible difference makes it a great choice for any aggressive loadout.

Here’s the most popular Cold War MP5 loadout for Warzone Season 4:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd Drum

9. Milano 821

The Milano received a surprisingly powerful buff at the start of Warzone Season 4. YouTuber JGOD described it as a meta weapon, and it became just that. With an exceptional range for an SMG, the Milano excelled in its class.

The Reloaded update did bring the Milano back in line with other SMGs. It’s still incredibly strong when used as an SMG, and you’re likely to see it in plenty of loadouts throughout the rest of Season 4.

Check out the most popular Milano 821 loadout in Warzone Season 4:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 10.6″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd Drum
  • Stock: Raider Stock

8. Grau 5.56

Warzone Grau 5.56

When Warzone was first released in March 2020, the Grau 5.56 was king. With almost no recoil and the cleanest iron sight the game had to offer, almost every player ran the Grau. Now in Season 4, it has received a small buff which has brought it closer to its former glory.

The majority of players now use the Grau as their ‘Fully Loaded’ weapon, which they can take to get full ammo when grabbing a loadout after returning from the Gulag.

The most popular Grau 5.56 loadout in Warzone Season 4:

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

7. FARA 83

best warzone fara 83 loadout

Thanks to balance changes in Warzone Season 4, the FARA 83 became the go-to Assault Rifle for the majority of players. However, it received some nerfs in the Season 4 Reloaded update, which has dropped it down a few tiers.

Even though it’s not the absolute laserbeam it once was, it’s still one of the best Assault Rifles in the game. It’s an excellent combination of accuracy and damage, being the perfect middle-ground between the C58 and Krig 6.

Here’s the most popular FARA 83 loadout for Warzone Season 4:

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

6. Swiss K31

Best Warzone Swiss K31 loadout

Raven Software has been hard at work fine-tuning Cold War’s Sniper Rifles in Warzone. Now, they seem to have got the Swiss K31 into a great spot.

Its direct counterpart is the Kar98k, as they’re both quick and highly versatile snipers. Not much sets the two apart now, and some even prefer the Swiss. Its high bullet velocity means that you hardly need to lead shots, and its magazine gives it a solid reload time compared to the Kar98k.

Here’s the most popular Swiss K31 loadout in Warzone Season 4:

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 24.9″ Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Bruser Grip
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

5. C58

Warzone C58 loadout

The C58 was an extremely powerful but somewhat underrated Assault Rifle ahead of the Season 4 Reloaded update, but now it’s arguably the best AR in the game.

Almost every aspect of the C58 is great, from recoil control to damage. It was previously referred to as “broken” because the Royal & Cross 4x scope reduced the recoil much more than it’s meant to, but devs Raven Software fixed the problem.

Even though the 4x scope has been fixed, it still remains in the most popular loadout. However, we may soon see the 3x take its place as most popular.

The most popular C58 loadout in Warzone Season 4:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Royal & Cross 4x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd

4. Modern Warfare MP5

Warzone Modern Warfare MP5 loadout

Modern Warfare’s MP5 is back. This little beast dominated the close-range meta for months before Cold War’s integration, and it’s received a spike in popularity after Season 4 Reloaded.

Cold War’s MP5 used to edge it out, but it was slightly nerfed in the Season 4 Reloaded update, which has put Modern Warfare’s version back on top. It’s incredibly easy to use and packs a solid punch, making it a great choice for any playstyle.

The most popular Modern Warfare MP5 loadout in Warzone Season 4:

  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags

3. MAC-10

Warzone MAC-10

Boasting an incredibly fast fire rate, rapid TTK, and next to no recoil, the MAC-10 is the obvious choice for a secondary weapon in Warzone Season 4. It’s even become a favorite of streamer NICKMERCS.

When paired with a long-range Assault Rifle such as the C58, or a Sniper like the Kar98k, the MAC-10 is the perfect pocket weapon. Even though SMGs were hit in the Reloaded update, the MAC-10 has remained a popular choice.

The most popular MAC-10 loadout in Warzone Season 4:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

2. Kar98k

Warzone Kar98k

If you’re looking for a fast Sniper Rifle that’s easy to use, the Kar98k is the weapon for you. Although technically a Marksman Rifle, this bolt-action WW2 rifle is Warzone’s best Sniper.

The Kar98k has a solid ADS speed, and with its high bullet velocity, you’ll find it much easier to use than most other Sniper Rifles. You can effectively quickscope in close-range situations, and by leading your targets, hit some nasty longshots.

The most popular Kar98k loadout in Warzone Season 4:

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

1. Krig 6

Krig 6 Warzone Season 4

Although underutilized in past seasons, buffs and nerfs in the Season 4 Reloaded update has catapulted the Krig 6 to popularity. It’s one of the easiest Assault Rifles to use in the game, having barely any recoil and solid damage output.

The Krig isn’t as powerful as the C58, but it’s so easy to use that players of all skill levels can take advantage of it.

The most popular Krig 6 loadout in Warzone Season 4:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 15″ CMV Mil-Spec
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 60 Rnd

If you’re yet to use any of these weapons in Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island, give them a try with these attachments.

Mastercraft blueprints have been a very popular cosmetic item for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone players, even though the community has recently been calling for the developers to make a major change to them, so there are sure to be plenty of players rocking this new Warzone Phoenix Inferno blueprint for the QBZ-83 Assault Rifle.

Warzone players call for boycott over Blizzard lawsuit and hacking problems

Due to the Blizzard lawsuit and endless hacking, Warzone, and other Call of Duty players, are calling for a boycott of Store purchases.

Published

on

activision blizzard warzone

Warzone players are encouraging all Call of Duty gamers to boycott the purchase of skins and bundles from the store in response to the recent Activision Blizzard lawsuit and constant Warzone hacking.

It’s been an unsettling time for Call of Duty and its respective titles – Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, CoD: Mobile, and Modern Warfare. The ongoing Activision Blizzard lawsuit has impacted the franchise, and fans are calling for fellow players to stop buying goods from the CoD store in protest.

This includes everything from skins to Operator Bundles to even the Seasonal Battle Pass. Warzone players are citing the lawsuit, “empty updates,” and hackers as the driving force behind this movement.

activision blizzard headquarters

The lawsuit is dealing directly with an “alleged toxic workplace,” and has even lead to a full walkout by employees in response to the unfortunate situation.

Added to this is the purported series of empty updates “full of microtransactions in order to milk the players,” and the ever-increasing threat of hackers, and players have seemingly had enough.

Reddit user Jaszs has lead the charge by saying: “I’m writing this as someone who has played every. single. COD since COD2, and WZ since day 1 until yesterday, and also a former Blizzard fan. Yes, I know it may sound bad, but based on what’s going on (sexual harassment lawsuit, suppressing and abusive treatment of their employees…) I really think those guys don’t deserve anything from us, their customers.

“You can even keep playing the game if you want (there are some cool alternatives though; if you need some just ask in the comments!), just don’t spend any money in their store. In any case, you should also remember that they are the same guys that are releasing empty updates full of microtransactions in order to milk the players, releasing over and over the same game and not giving a single f*ck about the increasing number of hackers.”

The very passionate statement received over 300 comments and counting, and it’s universally in favor of boycotting Activision’s Store ahead of the Warzone Season 5 launch.

Given that there are many responses, here are a selection of replies:

  • “I’ve got 900 COD points and level 90 on the battle pass. Not spending a penny more on this game. They don’t respect their employees, they don’t respect the players (anti-cheat lmao) they aren’t getting anymore of my money.”
  • “Once all this sh*t came to light, my entire friend group collectively uninstalled the game and swore off of it for good. We were already mad at the game for being poorly managed with hackers and constant glitches/crashes. I suppose this was the lead straw that broke the metaphorical camel’s back.”
  • “Based on the way they’ve handled cheating, the CW integration, and the general state of the game in the last year, I’m shocked than any of you have been buying cosmetic items from them. Do you realize what kind of message you’re sending by making the worst CoD their highest-earning one?”

At the time of writing, the post has nearly 1.8K upvotes and rising. Given the player count of Warzone far exceeds this, it’s hard to imagine this boycott would do too much damage.

Conversely, Producer at Sledgehammer Games Alayna Cole has Tweeted an important message concerning the circumstances.

Boycotting the Activision store will have an obvious knock-on effect in terms of sales revenue, and would ultimately disrupt the salaries and jobs of many employees who are not involved in this lawsuit.

It’s a hard position for all involved and for players who engage in Call of Duty games. The lawsuit is still long ongoing, and we’ll continue to update you at Charlie INTEL with any breaking developments.
