Best Warzone 2 guns for Season 2 Reloaded

1 year ago 136

Want to get your hands on the best Warzone 2 guns for Season 2 Reloaded? If you’re trying to increase your odds of winning the game, customising a loadout, and focusing on the current meta guns is the way to go. While you could rely entirely on floor loot and drops from enemies, you will have an easier time taking down rival players using weapons you’ve had the chance to practice with.

The best gun in Warzone 2 is the RPK. With a high rate of fire, controllable recoil, and huge damage output, there really isn’t a better weapon to take into Al Mazrah right now than the RPK. With over 50 different weapons to pick from, we’re going to highlight what makes the best guns in Warzone 2 stand out from the rest of the competition. Here are the best Warzone 2 guns, including an optimised loadout for most weapons and some advice on how to use them in the free PC game.

Best guns in Warzone 2

The best guns in Warzone 2 are:

  • Barrel: KAS-10 584MM Barrel
  • Muzzle: Kastovia DX90
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip

LMGs are often underutilised in Warzone 2.0, but you’d be a fool not to try out the RPK. Our best Warzone 2 RPK loadout has been designed to take the best elements of assault rifles and merge them with the RPK’s form factor. The result is an LMG capable of landing headshots from miles away as we opt for attachments that improve its damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control.

 The M4, one of the most recognisable assault rifles in the Call of Duty series, as it appears in Warzone 2.


  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20
  • Barrel: Hightower 20” Barrel
  • Optic: SZ Vortex-90
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

A fan favourite weapon and a great all-rounder, the M4 is considered the best gun in Warzone 2 because of its versatility. The base damage, recoil, and clip size create a perfect platform for you to express yourself, and once you unlock additional attachments, you can really make this assault rifle your own. We’ve made some fundamental changes to the best Warzone 2 M4 loadout compared to the version featured in Modern Warfare to reflect the size of Al Mazrah. As a result, we’ve picked long range attachments to fight against enemies from 50m and beyond.

  • Muzzle: XTEN RR-40
  • Barrel: 12” Bruen SZ-36
  • Laser: 1MW Quick Fire Laser
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum
  • Rear Grip: D37 Grip

The BAS-P is one of Warzone 2’s newest SMGs, only being recently introduced to the game in Warzone 2 season 1. It looks like snipers have found the perfect companion to pair alongside their long range weapons. We’ve customised this SMG to shred any incoming enemies at close range, though you can take on foes at medium range if you’re feeling confident. Our best Warzone 2 BAS-P loadout is also worth taking a closer look at if you want to trade some mobility and magazine size for improved accuracy stats.

Best Warzone 2 P890 loadout


  • Muzzle: DZS Open Comp
  • Laser: 1MW Pistol Laser
  • Rear Grip: Akimbo P890
  • Magazine: 12 Round Mag
  • Trigger Action: Bruen Express

It may seem a little strange to have a pistol in a list of the best Warzone 2 guns, but these little beauties are absolutely devastating in close combat, especially if you use the akimbo attachment. Unerringly accurate up to five metres, poke at your enemy with your primary weapon, then whip the P890’s out to finish the job. We’ve got the best Warzone 2 P890 loadout here if you want the full attachment breakdown.

  • Muzzle: FTAC Reaper
  • Barrel: 22” OMX-456
  • Laser: Schalger PEQ Box IV
  • Ammunition: .300 Incendiary Rounds
  • Magazine: 5-Round Mag

The sheer size of Al Mazrah lends itself well to sniping, so you’re going to need a weapon that can crush your enemies no matter how far away they are. This build is capable of downing enemies with one headshot due to the additional tick damage of the incendiary rounds. These do hurt your bullet velocity, however, so the trade-off for that one-shot kill is that it’s much harder to maintain accuracy. Check out the best Warzone MCPR 300 loadout for the ideal attachments and why they’re used on this beast of a sniper rifle.
