Warzone 2.0’s Season 4 has been out for a while now. With constant changes in the meta pool, buffs, nerfs, and increased health changes, along with several weapons that have been going in and out of players’ loadouts, Players finally figured out the constantly used weapons to have in their arsenal that will help them stay ahead of gunfights.
The list below contains some of the most popular guns in the current meta for Warzone 2.0 Season 4 Reloaded:
The M4 has been the main staple for every Call of Duty game since its introduction in Modern Warfare (2007). But its function to land kills makes it a mainstay in every player’s starting loadout in Warzone 2. With the Gunsmith feature, you can tailor this gun to meet your every need. Be it mid-range engagements or close-quarters battles, this jack-of-all-trades weapon platform can do it.
2. Kastov 762
Based on the real-life AK47 platform, this hard-hitter can take down other players with ease as long as you can control your shots, as its recoil can be a headache when shooting it on full-auto without its proper attachments.
3. X13 Auto
The full-auto version of the X12, this gun has been featured in the spotlight from time to time. Previously considered a “meta” in players’ loadouts with the “Akimbo” perk and as a SMG alternative, the X13 can rip through players’ armor plates in a matter of seconds. Now, it has found its way back into the meta pool yet again due to its TTK, which can almost outgun any other SMG out there.
An “AK SMG” variant, the Vaznev 9K is a great option for close-range combat. Along with its mobility, you can sweep through rooms with this gun when equipped with the right attachments.
Though it resembles a submachine gun, the Kastov-74u packs a punch and has impressive maneuverability. This compact assault rifle can still land shots at mid-range despite being designed for close-range combat. And when equipped with the right attachments, one can control its recoil, have an even faster ADS speed, and have more bullet velocity.
6. ISO Hemlock
With its introduction in Season 2, this newcomer in the Assault Rifle class offers nostalgia to players, with its appearance and performance similar to the original Modern Warfare 2 (2009)’s ACR and Modern Warfare 2019’s Grau.
The ISO Hemlock gained popularity in Season 2 when it became competitively meta among other ARs with its devastating TTK in mid-range battles. But at the same time, it became a primary nerf candidate in favor of other AR alternatives.
7. Lanchmann Sub
Modeled after the trusty SMG, the MP5 is still one of the most picked in the SMG class meta pool due to its consistency in close-range battles. And by using attachments that can mitigate the recoil, increase damage output, and improve the ADS speed, the Lachmann Sub SMG can be an excellent option in close-range battles all the time.
8. Victus XMR
At long range, the Victus XMR can practically one-shot players, making it one of the greatest sniper rifles in Warzone 2.0. What this sniper rifle lacks in mobility, it compensates for with raw and superior firepower. Equipping this gun with attachments that can add to its already powerful damage profile will surely strike fear among players who are running out in the open.
Even among the most powerful options in its class, the MCPR-300 can still dish out tremendous damage, but with more mobility. And despite sniper rifles being less popular compared to the original Warzone, equipping the MCPR-300 with explosive rounds brings back its old glory with one-shotting players at range, and combining it with attachments that can improve your ADS and mobility, the MCPR-300 can almost be used for quick shots.
10. ISO 45
Introduced in Season 4, it quickly rose to popularity, having one of the highest pick-rates in the SMG class due to its fire rate, damage, and mobility. The ISO 45 can destroy players at close range almost instantly.
With its current damage profile, it’s safe to say it can compete with others in its class, such as the Lachmann Sub and Vaznev-9K, making it a viable option for clearing out rooms and finishing close-range battles quickly, thus making it up to the players’ preference in picking which one.
11. Cronen Squall
Upon its arrival in Season 3, the Cronen Squall quickly earned its place in the meta pool with its raw damage output, fast TTK, and fire rate. This gun isn’t looking to be replaced at the moment. Despite being a semi-automatic Battle Rifle, it is one of the best all-around options available in its class.
Since then, it has also seen numerous nerfs, such as increasing its TTK. But still, it remains to be used by many, able to pick out accurate shots at long-range while being utilized alongside a viable secondary to help players out.
Based on the real-life HK33, the Lachmann-556 rose to take its place among the mid-range meta-pool of Assault Rifles. But even if it is not the best gun around, it is still one of the good options to go with, given its balance of damage output and mobility. Having attachments that improve upon this makes it a competitive AR to have around.
Known as the “SCAR-L” by veteran players of the COD community, this gun might not be in the limelight amongst its peers but could still be a solid option for AR enthusiasts. To make this gun a viable option for your loadout and make the most of its raw firepower and recoil control, you’ll need the necessary attachments equipped. Despite that, the TAQ-56 is still one of the most popular ARs in Warzone 2.
14. VEL 46
Known to most as the “MP7”, the VEL 46’s iteration of the MP7 might be its best yet. It is one of the most devastating SMGs around with its near non-existent recoil, and combining it with an aggressive, run-n-gun playstyle, one could sweep through multiple players in one go. Players could also consider pairing this SMG with an AR or sniper rifle, depending on their playstyle. The VEL 46 still competes among other viable options in its class.
15. Fennec 45
Known for its incredible rate of fire, the Fennec 45 surely excels in close-range engagements. But one would need an extended magazine attachment, as its rate of fire chews through ammo really quickly. The Fennec 45 could also compete as a viable option for a secondary weapon with the Overkill perk, alongside an AR or Sniper Rifle.
16. FSS Hurricane
The FSS Hurricane is basically an M4 converted into an SMG, taking in P90 magazines, resulting in it having 50 rounds as standard. The FSS Hurricane is sometimes overlooked as a solid option for an SMG despite being strong. But by increasing its damage output and accuracy alongside its almost non-existent recoil and mobility, this gun could dominate any close-quarters gunfight if built correctly.
17. Signal 50
Among its peers in the bolt-action class, the Signal 50 stands out as an excellent semi-automatic choice for long-range shooters; with its fire rate, damage, and range, it can pack a solid punch.
Regardless, the Signal 50 can be a good beginner’s sniper rifle if one tends to miss that first initial shot, as they can quickly rack up that second follow-up shot with the rifle’s semi-auto capability. But with other sniper rifles such as the Victus XMR or FJX Imperium and their one-shot capabilities, the right attachments might be needed for the Signal 50 to compete with them toe-to-toe.
