While we continue to wait with great anticipation for Call of Duty Warzone 2, we continue to fight in the hot climate of Caldera. If you’re like us, you should check out the best Warzone loadouts in season 5.

After the Vanguard weapons join the others, there are hundreds of combinations in Warzone that you can use in different situations. If you choose the right equipment, you’ll be able to put yourself in an advantageous position for close or ranged combat.

All our recommendations below are mainly based on notes from professional streamers like Teepee or Cloakzy.

Warzone Season 5 Loadout Meta

As in every new update, some weapons come to the fore in the fifth season. There’s nothing more natural than that because the developers have to do that to keep the gameplay alive and increase sales.

The meta of Warzone’s fifth season isn’t really a single weapon. Instead, binary combinations are more deadly. Here are our favorites:


H4 Blixen + MG42: Broken Auto Duo

The familiar term “broken” is often used as part of competitive shooting culture to refer to a weapon that needs fixing. Usually, it indicates additional damage caused by the bug or a problem that completely upsets the balance of the game. This isn’t the case with these two weapons.

The H4 Blixen is truly incredible in this build, which is recommended in Teepee’s live stream chat. It’s the best SMG build in the game with its very high movement speed, accuracy, and almost meaningless damage level. Even better than the hipfire PPSH.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Johnsson 9” RMK
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: SG98 Compact
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Grip
  • Perk 1: Steady
  • Perk 2: Quick

After mastering short and medium ranges with this weapon, you should go back in time and give the MG42 a chance again for long ranges. Because this build offers the stability and damage you need.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: VDD 890mm 32M Luftschutz
  • Optic: G46 2.5x
  • Stock: VDD 64M
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Magazine: 6.5 Sakura 125 Round Drum
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Armaguerra 43 SMG + 3-Line Rifle: Snipers are the best!

Even though everyone’s playstyle is different, it’s safe to say that SMGs have dominated Warzone for a long time. If you prefer close combat anyway, you probably won’t survive with an AR. But if you have an A43, you’ll win that fight without any problem.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Imerito 180mm Short
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Imerito TA Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: SG98 Compact
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Magazine: 9mm 60 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Grip
  • Perk 1: Steady
  • Perk 2: Quick

All sniper rifles in Warzone had their time to shine. It’s impossible not to miss the days when the Swiss were a commodity. Don’t be too sad, though, because with the fifth season we have a brand new sniper rifle: the 3-Line Rifle. Technically, it’s not a heavy sniper rifle, but it reminds me a lot of the first seasons.

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: Empress 514mm F01
  • Optic: SVT-40 3-6x Scope
  • Stock: ZAC Custom MZ
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Magazine: .30-06 20 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk 1: Silent Focus
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

RA 225 + Grau 5.56: Old Good Days

It’s known that SMGs are very strong in the first two loadouts. But if you’re looking for an alternative instead, your first weapon of choice should be the RA 225. It’s important that you stick to this build, because if you play with the balance of the weapon, you may not be satisfied with its performance. You’ll have a high fire rate, mobility, and damage trio.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Urban Rapid 11”
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Urban Tac
  • Underbarrel: SG998 Compact
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Magazine: 9mm 55 Round Drums
  • Rear Grip: Granular Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Quick

Since it’s not the new SMG that takes us back in time, it must be the second weapon, right? That’s right because our second weapon is the re-commodified Grau! Arguably the best AR of the first season, it’s as good as before after the updates. With this build, it’s unbeatable at long ranges.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4” Archangel
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mags

When you start using one of these duos, you’ll immediately feel that you have an advantage over other players. Since the real secret of success in Warzone is knowing how to take a position, these weapons will be your greatest help while you improve in this area.


Alternative Meta Guns in Warzone Season 5

Suppose you don’t want to use the above weapons. You still have some alternatives that are definitely strong enough to be meta. You can use the following weapons as part of any loadout and achieve victory.

If you want to know what the best weapons of each type are in season 5 of Warzone, you can take a look at the following list:

Best SMG: Vanguard PPSH-41

It’s the best SMG in the game, both very easy to play and hip-fire. Its fire rate is so high that it’s unlikely to lose in close combat. Of course, everyone uses it because it’s one of the best meta weapons in the game, so be careful.

Best LMG: UGM-8 

Warzone has a nice love affair with LMGs that have almost no recoil. This is the lucky weapon in Season 5, and with the right loadout you can hit the target you want without knowing the distance, thanks to the bullets that move like a rope.

Best Rifle: Automaton

If you don’t like adjustable scopes, you might want to reconsider your decision thanks to this gun. Because it should be one of your first choices to kill your enemies very quickly both at medium and long ranges. In combination with a good SMG, it’s an almost perfect loadout.

That’s it for now with the best Warzone loadouts. We’ll continue to write new guides for you as new updates come and we discover new weapons.
