Full On Close & Far Burst Damage Loadout

This loadout allows you to handle close to mid-range encounters using the An-94's high burst damage but keep up the ranged damage against far targets with Kar98k due to the recent Marksman Rifle buff. It can deal a good burst damage to targets at most ranges.

Hunt For Prey With Heartbeat Sensors Or Snapshot

Heartbeat Sensor lets you get a bearing of the whereabouts and ranges of targets. Couple this with the new updated footstep sounds and you can get a jump on people. If campers are your main problem, use Snapshot Grenades to flush them out.

Snipe While Holding Your Ground Up Close

ISO SMG has good handling and a high fire rate that is effective up close but will suffer at longer distances, so we combined it with snipers rifles to min-max each weapon's pros & cons. It can be a good pair weapons for snipers also looking to get up close and personal.

Swap Out Weapons As You Need

If for some reason the match needs you to ditch one of your weapons for something with better attachments or a Grenade Launcher, you have the liberty to do so as you can swap between weapons fast thanks to the Amped perk. This gives you more utility in the field.

Warzone Best Meta Loadout Class - FAL, Grau, M4A1, CR-56

Warzone Best Meta Loadout Class - FAL, Grau, M4A1, CR-56
Primary Current meta is choosing a low-recoil fast firing Assault rifle so you can pick people off at range. Current meta weapons can be found here.
Best Choices: FAL, Grau 5.56, M4A1, M13, CR-56 AMAX
Secondary Secondary weapons meta are CQB weapons where you use it to kill the enemy up close ASAP.
Best Choices: MP5, MP7, AUG. For the adventurous, R9-0
If you don't have the Overkill perk, or at least Amped equipped, then Renetti, .357 or RPG-7 is the best secondary you'll ever get if you don't swap out weapons in-game
Lethal C4 - No other lethal comes close to C4 in the explosive area, damage, utility & anti-vehicle department. No reason not to have one
Tactical Heartbeat Sensor - knowing the direction of where your enemies are is paramount in Warzone in every way. Even though a lot of players runs Ghost to counter this, there's always players out there that chose Overkill for you to hunt down
Perk 1 E.O.D. - With everyone and their grandma running around with C4 and RPG-7, this is your only defense for not being blasted into a Gulag even when fully plated by some random explosives
Perk 2 Ghost - Counters detection by UAV, Heartbeat Sensor, which is the key to winning especially in smaller gas circles
Overkill - Bring 2 main weapons of your choice. While A better idea would be to run Ghost and pick up another weapon in the field, use this if you have some lesser-used weapons that you want to bring in
Perk 3Amped - What's the point of having 2 specialized weapons if you can't swap to it when you need it? Amped becomes a must in the robust ever-changing environment in Warzone

Loadout To Thrive In the Current Meta

This loadout class combines stealth, weapons capable of picking off people at range and shred enemies up close, dealing with vehicles (C4), & defense from explosives. It can take advantage of and defend against the main threats that's prevalent in the current Warzone Meta.

.41 AE Magazines Required

The .41 AE 32-Round Magazine increases the damage and the range of the Uzi, making it a very viable weapon in Warzone. Only equip this loadout if you have unlocked the said attachment.

Hot Swap For All Ranges

The Uzi can be used for close to mid range encounters while the AX-50 for long-ranged ones. Be prudent with how you move and swap to either weapons to deal with immediate threats.

All-Range, All-Purpose Balanced Loadout

Your PKM has high magazine, good range and high rate of fire. PKM's extremely versatile, and the rest of the Perks will back it up with increased sprint time from Double Time(Since LMGs are slower), knowing when you're spotted, and a faster weapon swap time.

Can Handle Vehicles On your Own

An unexpected threat in Warzone are the vehicles roaming around and ramming people. As many players will be driving around, having a launcher in your loadout can mean a free kill or a deterrent from being rammed. Also useful for clearing out rooms.

Balanced Early-Rank Loadout For Mobile Offensive

If you don't like lugging around a LMG, try M4A1 or Kilo 141 instead. They are maneuverable early-rank weapons that can be modified to be effective at most ranges and situations, letting you be more aggressive and mobile.

Consider Extended Mags Attachments

Due to the new Body Armor mechanics and having to fight whole teams, having a larger magazine size is highly beneficial. M4A1 and Kilo 141 both comes with 50 or 60 round magazine attachments.

All Attachments List

Track Down Supply Boxes For Killstreaks

As you will be on the move a lot, you can hunt down a lot of Supply Boxes scattered across the map. The Kill Chain perk lets you grab more killstreaks for use against hard targets to get ahead.

All Killstreaks List

Choose Renetti For Easier Control


If you have a hard time controlling the big recoils of .357 & .50 GS, pick Renetti as your sidearm instead. It has very good handing and decent range for a handgun to be effective as a backup weapon. Renetti was introduced in season 3.

Pick Between Defense Or Stealth

Grau 5.56's soft recoil and its longer ranges allows it to handle most ranges with ease. You can fight with it in most situations making it a solid choice as a main weapon, thus Overkill isn't really necessary. Choose between defense or stealth for the loadout.

Swap out Weapon As You See Fit

With Amped, you can swap to any weapons fast, meaning you can actually use them when you need to without fumbling. As weapons are plentiful in Warzone, swap out your secondaries based on your situation, whether its a shotgun for room cleaning or a sniper rifle for the open areas.

Best HDR & R9-0 Loadout Class (All-Range)

Best HDR & R9-0 Custom Loadout (All-Range)

Snipe & CQB At the Same Time

This loadout focus on the 2 things players will encounter in Warzone: Picking each other off in the open fields and the ruthless CQB battles in buildings. HDR packs the punch to one-shot people at range while R9-0 shotgun has the burst damage & magazine size needed to clear rooms.

Avoid Thermal Detection With Cold-Blooded

Thermal optics gives a good advantage when looking for targets in the open fields, and many players will be using them. Counter this by having the Cold-Blooded perk which hides you from thermal detection.

See Dead Enemy Positions With Tracker

Tracker Perk lets you see skull icon at a dead enemy's position, useful in determining if there's enemy teams near your locations. it also hides the skull icons of players you kill, keeping their teams in the dark about where they fell.

Best Bruen Mk9 & Striker 45 Loadout Class

Bruen Mk9 Striker 45 Combo Loadout

Cover All Ranges

Thanks to both weapons, you will be able to reliably hit your shots at any range. The Striker 45 SMG can help you defend yourself at close range, while the Bruen Mk9 LMG covers you at longer ranges! Equip the Amped perk to allow you to switch weapons faster during surprise encounters!

Move Around Faster

Due to the large size of the Warzone map, it's recommended to increase your mobility at all costs! The Double Time perk lets you increase the duration of your Tactical Sprint, and your crouch movement speed, making you a harder target to hit!

Best MP5 Or M13 Loadout Class (Stealth)

Achieve Max Stealth With Unique Attachments

M13 & MP5 has unique attachments that greatly enhances stealth by eliminating weapon tracer & target kill skull icon. These attachments are .300 Blackout 30-Round Mags (M13) & Subsonic Integral Suppressor (MP5). We'll be using this in this build for max stealth.

No Need For Tracker Perk

The benefits provided by Tracker Perk overlaps with the effects of these unique attachments, so there's no need to pick Tracker. We chose Spotter instead as it let the user see & hack equipment through walls which will be good intel on enemy whereabouts.

Avoid All Digital Surveillance With Cold-Blooded & Ghost

Cold-Blooded & Ghost will keep you off all digital surveillance whether its the UAV, Heartbeat Sensor or Thermal optics. No one will be able to track you unless its by direct line of sight.

Swap Ghost With High Alert If No UAV

If you feel there's not a whole lot of UAV being used or isn't too concerned about them, swap Ghost for High Alert so you know when you've been seen by enemies.

Bait Enemy Revivors With C4

A nasty trick will be to down an unsuspecting opponent, throw a C4 and then run away. When you can hear the enemy teams trying to revive, blow the C4. You'll find plenty of unsuspecting prey if you stealth your way along.

Best MK2, SKS Loadout Class (Support)

Support Your Teammates With the Versatile MK2

This support build focus on patching up any potential roles that your team may have missed due to specializing on certain loadout. The MK2 can deal with targets close and far flexibly, letting the user pursue other role tasks. Hang back a bit from your team to observe and support when needed.

Higher RoF & Magazine Size With SKS


SKS, introduced in Season 3, is a good alternative with its high rate of fire (RoF) & decent magazine size. It doesn't deal as much damage per shot as the MK2 but is just as deadly with its ease of follow up shots and manageable recoil.

Check out Season 3 Battle Pass Guide here!

Spot Traps & Deal With Vehicles

Most loadout cannot deal efficiently against enemy vehicles, so It'll be up to you to pop that enemy vehicle or chopper. Also, spot enemy equipment like Claymore & C4 to prevent your team from walking into a trap.

Deploy Smoke Grenade To Max Effect

Smoke Grenades if used smartly can turn the tides of an encounter. Popping one when retreating or reviving a teammate can greatly increase its success. As most players will focus on other tacticals like Flash or Stims, you need to pick up the slack one again.

All Tacticals List

Choose Pointman If Your team Focus on Contracts

Pointman increase your team's cash when completing contracts, making it advantageous in modes like Plunder. More cash also means more Self Revive purchases as well as teammate revives, so it might add up a lot if your team does Contracts.

Warzone Best Custom Loadout Criteria

Below is a list of criteria that was used to recommend custom loadouts for Warzone.

Flexibility & Versatility

The recommended loadouts need to be versatile and flexible enough to handle the ever-changing dynamics of the Warzone maps, such as increased fighting range, enemy location uncertainty and overall chaos. We try to consider these in our builds.

Increased Survivability

Warzone punishes death rather harshly in its Battle Royale and Plunder modes, so we try to add things that can sustain or defend the player so they can stay alive longer. Staying alive gives you more opportunity to win in the fast paced battles of Warzone.

Focus On Weapon & Perk Strengths

The recommended loadouts mostly centers around weapon characteristics & strengths that best suits the situation in consideration. They will attempt to enhance or cover the weapon's weakness/ restrictions.

Check Out The Complete Weapons List Here!

Damage & Accuracy Considered

DPS & Ability To Kill

With the new Body Armor mechanics, getting consistent hits are just as important as dealing out damage fast. Loadouts should also have a high DPS to get ahead in the fight.

I take smoke grenade with the stealth build, since it can let you disappear like a ninja or shoot through it with thermal optics.
