Finally, Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 is out! Whether you’re looking to get wins easier on Fortune’s Keep or looking to raise your Kill/Death ratio on Caldera, having the best meta loadout is surely going to be on top of your first to-do list. As usual, with the Season 3: Reloaded the meta has changed considerably therefore it’s best to get to know the best assault rifles, sniper rifles and SMGs to achieve good results and of course we didn’t forget about the shotguns as well.

We know some top tiers are still as effective as before starting Season 4 and  of course, some guns get occasional buffs to move them up to Warzone meta. At the same time, some weapons that were dominating the playing field previously might feel a little bit off nowadays. However, we don’t want you to learn the new trends by trial and error. Therefore, we did some digging so that you don’t worry about finding the best loadout and get straight to combat.

The weapons on our list are suitable for usage across Caldera, Fortune’s Keep and Rebirth Island. Our main goal is to gather the best loadouts that are perfect specifically for action filled plays so that you can move faster and cause more chaos.

Most Efficient Warzone Loadouts

We gathered the combination of the opinions of the best players, streamers and Call of Duty community and as a result, this list was put together. So this will be a list you can rely on without a doubt. Take your pick based on you experience or playstyle and then watch the hell break loose.

Our suggestions will not only be targeting  the new players that are just starting out or intermediate players trying to get better results but also the players that want the best of the best. So the below topics will be touched upon in detail.

  • For Vanguard beginners – STG44 and MP40
  • For Vanguard beginners – Gorenko Anti-tank Rifle and PPSH
  • Warzone loadout – HDR and H4 Blixen
  • Warzone loadout – BAR and Owen Gun
  • Warzone loadout – M4A1 and Double Barrel Shotgun
  • Warzone loadout – DP27 and Type 100
  • Warzone loadout – XM4 and Welgun

For Vanguard beginners – STG44 and MP40

Especially if you’re a beginner with a fresh copy of Call of Duty: Vanguard, you can find yourself in a rather chaotic environment. When you consider that we are in the season four, some of the things that the seasoned players can do can look a bit hard to reach for the new players. But STG44 is here to smooth that edge in your favor. You don’t have to wait to grind levels to able to use this gun and also it’s probably one of the best assault rifles available since the launch of the Warzone Pacific. For this reason, STG44 is a life saver from the start and you surely will find it quite useful.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: VDD 760mm 05B
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Vital Proficiency
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

What happens when you have to engage in close combat, though? Here when MP40 comes in to save the day. You can unlock this gun almost immediately from the start. MP40 has a high rate of fire and it’s really easy to use. Although, the only thing you need to worry about is the damage output decreasing at longer ranges. Nevertheless, MP40 will surely help you out in close range combat.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: VDD 189mm Short
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Krausnick 33M Folding
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 45 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Brace
  • Perk 2: Quick

For Vanguard beginners – Gorenko Anti-tank Rifle and PPSH

If you don’t prefer using assault rifles however, a sniper SMG combination might be what you need. A while ago Kar98k or Swiss rifles would be a perfect fit for snipers. With Warzone Pacific Season 3 sniper boost there is new player in town though. For instance, Gorenko Anti Tank Rifle is now a really good option for newer players that offers a one shot kill chance. One quick note, please don’t use the default sight and get rid of it at first chance. Otherwise you might start wondering why you’re missing so much.

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: 420mm Empress
  • Optic: 1913 Variable 4-8x
  • Stock: Reinforced Stock
  • Underbarrel: Bipod
  • Magazine: 13mm AM 10 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: FMJ Rounds
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Perk: Focus
  • Perk 2: Deep Breath

To be able to use Gorenko in the most efficient way, you will need a close range partner to use when you’re rushing into a building or trying to finish off an injured enemy. Therefore, PPSH is our choice for this job. Even though it’s not as powerful as it used to be once, with high rate of power and easy recoil control, PPSH is still a gun you can get a good performance out of early in the game.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 230mm B03P
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8mm Nambu 71 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Perk: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2:Quick

Call of Duty: Warzone loadout – HDR and H4 Blixen

For those with a bit more experience in Warzone and access to the guns of the previous Call of Duty games, HDR stands out as an amazing option. For instance, if you’re into long range combat, with this classic HDR, you will see how easy it is to down enemies from long distances. What’s more is the joy you get out of hunting unaware enemies. Let them worry about finding cover.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 26.9″ HDR Pro
  • Laser: Tac laser
  • Optic: Variable Zoom Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Champion

To partner with this long distance killer, we would suggest to use OTs 9 if it was before. But there is a new sheriff in town now. H4 Blixen offers everything you’d want from an SMG with high rate of fire, easy handling and good DPS. In addition to the HDR, H4 Blixen will be the best piece to complete your loadout.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Jonsson 9″ RMK
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type:Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Fleet
  • Perk 2:Quick

Call of Duty: Warzone loadout – BAR and Owen Gun

First, let’s ask. Does BAR has the highest rate of fire? No. Is it the easiest to handle? No. But why BAR then? Because in combat, what matters is making every hit count. For this reason, BAR will always be on this list. With a large magazine and great DPS, BAR deserves to be on this list in addition to the other great weapons.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: CGC 30″ XL
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Chariot WR
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 40 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Hard Scope
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

To finish this couple, we are using the SMG choice of the Warzone players since Season 2: Reloaded, the Owen Gun. With great close combat damage and with a high rate of fire, Owen Gun is the ideal piece to complete BAR.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Gawain 188mm Shrouded
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 72 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk: Acrobatic
  • Perk 2: Quick

Call of Duty: Warzone loadout – M4A1 and Double Barrel Shotgun

You may be asking yourself, am I playing Modern Warfare? Yes it’s been that long since this beauty came into our lives, however, with some nice buffs M4A1 means business again in 2022. This gun is what comes to mind when you close your eyes and think about assault rifle. The classic. In summary, you can never go wrong with a classic like this.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mags

So, for the assault rifle we went with a classic pick. Even though we can go with an SMG to partner this classic with,  we say why not something more exotic? For instance, a Double Barrel Shotgun? Add the right attachments and unless you miss, your opponents will definitely feel the pain. Afterwards, all you need to do is looting your enemies’ drop.

  • Muzzle: M97 Full Choke
  • Barrel: Wilkie Huntsman
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 16 Gauge
  • Ammo Type: Reduced Powder
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Proficiency: Gung-ho
  • Kit: Quick

Call of Duty: Warzone loadout – DP27 and Type 100

In truth, sometimes we feel like LMG doesn’t get the attention that it deserves from the players. For instance, DP27 is a great example of how amazing a weapon class can be. With a massive magazine, you can feel safe about firing non stop until you’re in the clear to reload. LMG is also really easy to handle and these qualities makes DP27 a great choice for Warzone players. In addition, did we mention DP27 works wonders with shooting enemies from a distance?

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 604MM
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Empress VZV
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62x54mmR 105 Round Pans
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

In the rush of the moment, sometimes you are in a place that setting up an LMG is too slow of a process so in times like these you need an SMG that you can pull out quickly in order to continue your run. For example, Type 100 is an amazing option for this job. The gun climbed the ranks without any notice in the past few months and now comfortably sitting at the top ranks of the list. Regardless of the competition, Type 100 looks like it will stay around a bit.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Warubachi 134mm Rapid
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Warubachi Grip Folding
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short 36 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Acrobatic
  • Perk 2: Quick

Call of Duty: Warzone loadout – XM4 and Welgun

We feel like we don’t need to explain XM4 to the players and Cold War owners can testify to this. It has been on meta list for a while now and although it’s not on the same level as some other rifles, XM4 is still an amazing pick. It offers great handling and brutal damage output therefore making XM4 one of the best assault rifles in the game. You can be sure that XM4 will be one of your favorites if you haven’t used it previously.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 13.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: STANAG 60 Rnd

To finish our final loadout, we cast our vote on the Welgun. Since this SMG came into the game, it’s been a feared weapon on Caldera and Rebirth Island. It’s up there with MP40 and it surely is a pure joy to use this weapon. In any case, this duo will make you a force to be reckoned with.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: 320mm SA Shrouded
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 40 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Acrobatic
  • Perk 2: Quick

So, be on the lookout for the new additions that might end up on our list in the future. Hence you can stay ahead of the curve and adapt to the changing meta.
