Warzone - New Best Loot Weapons List & Guns Tier

4 New Guns That Can be Looted In The Field

4 New Guns That Can be Looted In The Field

After the 3/25 update, 4 new weapons can now be found in the loot of Warzone: 725, MK2 Carbine, .50 GS, and EBR-14. These weapons may be all you've got when you start out in Battle Royale, or make a fine swap option in Plunder.

Comes In Common Or Uncommon Rarity

The 4 new guns can be found in both Common and Uncommon rarity, meaning that there will come with different attachments. However, not all attachments may suit your playstyle, so choose your weapons based on practicality, not solely rarity.

MP7 (Looted)

MP7

MP7 is fairly abundant as loot in Warzone and has good handling, fast firing rate and a decent magazine size of 40. Its great versatility and fast speed makes it a powerful tool for most players to fight to their first loadout.

MK2 Carbine (Looted)

MK2 Carbine

Mk2 Carbine is a fine weapon to keep when looted in the field due to to its good damage, ease of control and decent performance at all ranges. That's why we even recommend it as a S tier weapon for Warzone.

Focus On Optics Attachment

When looting around for MK2 Carbine, try getting an optics attachment for it. An optic will greatly increase your effective range and open up new opportunities.

725 (Looted)

725

725 shotgun, while potent up close, is gimped by its 2-round magazine size that can be fatal in the team-fighting environment in Warzone. Even in solo modes, its inability to make fast follow up shots greatly increase the risk. Keep it for a while before swapping it out.

Check out 725 Shotgun Stats here!

.50 GS (Looted)

.50 GS

A powerful long-range handgun, .50 GS's heavy recoil and slower firing speed is not optimal as a main weapon to keep around. While a decent upgrade to the starting X16, players should swap it out for a rifle ASAP or ignore it if one cannot handle its recoil.

Check out .50 GS Handgun Stats here!

EBR-14 (Looted)

EBR-14

A semi-auto Marksman Rifle, EBR-14 can be a good ranged weapon to have but it's hard-kicking recoil means that its not a weapon for everyone. Without decent attachments, it's hard first-shot recoil can make follow-up shots difficult.

Warzone Best Weapon & Gun Evaluation Criteria

The above weapons were selected based on the following criteria:

Versatility

The best weapons for Warzone should be able to let the player adapt to different situations, whether it be in long-range shootout, or tooth & nail CQB brawls. Weapon range is a major concern in the wide open Verdansk.

Warzone Map - Verdansk Sectors & Location

High Damage Or Fire Rate

With the new Body Armor mechanic, damage either by bullet damage or TTK (time to kill) is more crucial than ever. Weapons with high base damage or faster rate of fire will be considered a priority.

Accurate Or Low Recoil

Due to great distance of the Warzone maps, engagements range can vary greatly. Being able to hit targets consistently, especially armored targets are just as important as damage. So, guns with a high accuracy, or low recoil are considered.

Accessibility

How soon a weapon becomes available for Warzone players to use will be considered in the ranking. If a weapon takes too long of a grind to unlock, than it might take out the fun from Warzone.

Key Attachments Availability

While some weapons turn into beasts with the right attachment, how soon these attachments are unlocked are put into consideration when deciding ranks.
