Warzone: Best weapon types Warzone guide, tips

In Call of Duty Warzone, players can use a variety of weapons to fight their way to the top or even to victory. During the game, you can use many types of pistols, light machine guns, SMGs, assault rifles, sniper rifles and shotguns. In this section of our game guide you will find information about all weapons available in Call of Duty Warzone and a set of tips on how to use them. We also provide an answer to the most fundamental question - what are the best weapons in Call of Duty Warzone? Each type of weapon has a specified model that is best in its class. We present the best modifications to every best firearm in a particular weapon class.

Guns and pistols

In Call of Duty Warzone pistols belong to the group of basic weapons, because you start the game with a handgun. Pistols work best on short and medium distances. Due to low damage and poor armor penetration, always try to aim at enemy's head during combat to inflict as much damage as possible. Remember that at the beginning of the match each player has an additional 100 armor points, so it will be difficult to kill someone with a handgun. Pistols have a pretty good accuracy during movement, but only if you fire single shots.

  1. Fire single shots;
  2. Try to save ammunition, don't shoot blindly;
  3. Take a small correction while aiming at a moving target - aim a little in front of it;
  4. In long-range combat, switch your weapon to a machine gun or sniper rifle.

.357 is the best gun in Call of Duty Warzone

357 is a revolver with a huge impact force that uses heavy ammunition - Warzone: Best weapon types - Basics - Warzone Guide

.357 is a revolver with a huge impact force that uses heavy ammunition. With its high armor penetration rate, the .357 revolver inflicts the highest damage of any pistol available in Call of Duty Warzone. Moreover, this weapon has extremely high accuracy. Unfortunately, the .357 has a low rate of fire, which means that every shot has to be launched with great precision. Also, the .357 doesn't have a large weapon magazine, because you only store 6 bullets in the weapon's chamber.

Recommended modifications for .357 pistol

We recommend the following modifications to .357:

  1. .357 Long (Barrel) - increases the range of fire;
  2. Compensator - makes it easier to use the weapon;
  3. Stippled Grip Tape - you will lose a bit of weapon's stability, but you gain some ADS speed;
  4. Sleight of Hands - increases the weapon's reloading speed.

Light Machine Guns

In Call of Duty Warzone, you will find a variety of machine guns that are well suited for close distance and medium-ranged combat. While using LMGs you can easily empty the whole weapon's magazine, but you need to correct the position of the sight in order to reduce the recoil. Additionally, light machine guns can be effective in a long-range combat, but only if you shoot single bullets or up to several bullets at once.

  1. In close-range combat always shoot an uninterrupted series of bullets at the upper body of your enemy;
  2. In mid-distance combat, use the tap firing technique or burst firing mode. Aim at the head of your opponent;
  3. Don't reload your weapon after just a few shots, especially if there are still other targets that have to be eliminated nearby. Reloading a light machine gun takes forever;
  4. If your weapon has a long reload time and you need to complete the elimination of the target, then use an auxiliary weapon and reload the machine gun in a safe place.

PKM is the best light machine gun in Call of Duty Warzone

PKM is by far the best light machine gun in Call of Duty Warzone - Warzone: Best weapon types - Basics - Warzone Guide

PKM is by far the best light machine gun in Call of Duty Warzone. What's most important, PKM is available to everyone, because it can be unlocked quickly, has a very high ammo capacity, good firing speed and decent accuracy. The long reloading time can be considered as its main disadvantage.

  3. 25.9 Heavy Barrel- increases weapon range and bullet speed at the expense of ADS speed;
  4. Monolithic Suppressor - increases the range of the weapon and makes the player invisible on the mini map during shooting.

Assault rifles

Assault rifles are the most popular weapon type in Call of Duty Warzone. Assault rifles work perfectly at any distance, but when you are firing a longer series of bullets you have to remember to correct the weapon sight in order to eliminate the recoil. To maximize the potential of this weapon, always try to aim at the head, as the first shot usually flies exactly towards the target.

  1. In close proximity, you can shoot long series by aiming at the body and gently correcting the target sight;
  2. In the medium distance it is best to use the tap firing technique or shoot short series while aiming at the head;
  3. If you shoot from a long distance it is best to use the tap firing technique and aim at the head of your opponent;
  4. Use zoom in feature on the long and medium distances and take a correction on the moving target - you have to aim a little in front of it.

  3. Sleight of Hands - increases the reloading speed of your weapon;
  4. No Stock - increases the accuracy and speed of movement, but also slightly increases the recoil.

SMG

SMGs belong to the group of light weapons, which work well in combat at short and medium distances. In Call of Duty Warzone SMGs don't do as much damage as assault rifles, but they can be used in close range combat and in tight spaces. SMG offers very high fire rate speed and good accuracy.

  1. Shoot a series of bullets at the upper body of your enemy in close encounters;
  2. In mid-distance combat, use the tap firing technique or burst firing mode. Aim at the head of your opponent;
  3. Don't reload your weapon after just a few shots, especially if there are still other targets that have to be eliminated nearby.

Sniper rifles

In Call of Duty Warzone you will also find high-end sniper weapons - heavy and light. Sniper rifles equipped with an additional scope (even with thermal optics) are best used in medium and long distance combat. When targeting, it is best to aim at the head, but chest shots can also be equally effective. When fighting over medium or long distances you can take a convenient sniper position (for example on the roof of the building) and camp there until the target comes into view. When you find yourself in a situation where the opponent is close to your character, then it's best to use a secondary weapon.

  1. Using a sniper weapon requires patience and self-control. Remember that when the target remains in motion, you need to aim a little in front of it so that the bullet hits the target;
  2. For medium and long distances simply use the zoom feature;
  3. The zoom of a sniper rifle is great for checking the area to find a potential target - especially if you use thermal optics;
  4. In close-ranged combat, you can try to aim blindly or quickly switch to your secondary weapon.

Shotguns

Shotguns in Call of Duty Warzone have a huge spread of bullets, which makes them effective only at short distances. Among the shotguns available in the game you can find semi-automatic and even automatic models. Due to the low rate of fire (the exception is R9-0), sometimes you will have the opportunity to take just one shot, which may decide about your future. If you miss, your opponent will have plenty of time to make some machine gun shots before your shotgun gets reloaded.

  1. In close proximity, aim at the upper part of the body to immediately eliminate the target;
  2. At the medium range, try to aim at the body, but remember that you will have to shoot several times before you can finish off your opponent;
  3. Take a good aim well before you make a shoot;
  4. In long-distance combat, change your weapon to a rifle or pistol.
