With Caldera’s long range meta running riot across Warzone’s matches, the weapons with low TTKs and manageable recoils represent the best options for skirmishing, early game safety, and closing out games without having to expose oneself to reposition needlessly.
In this kind of meta, the Bren reigns supreme. This LMG features a laser-like recoil pattern (with the right attachments) and a TTK that’s so low you’d be hard pressed to make any full-auto function quite as consistently as the Bren in as many situations as it can. It’s blueprints aren’t a joke, either. And to pay tribute to the current top dog in the mid to long-range skirmishes, we’ll be taking a look at the best blueprints it has to offer.
Bren’s first blueprint of this article is the Snow-covered Blood Spiller. With a frosted finish, its red accents help to pull together the blood theme to represent a victory on a cold night. Its most notable attachment choices include the Carver foregrip, which acts as a small canvas for one of the red pieces of the weapon. Additionally, the Queen’s 705MM barrel and the grooved rubber handle act as darker sections of the weapon, which help everything else pop out.
This blueprint has the looks to give the wielder something to look at while lying in wait, and its themes of destruction don’t bode too well for the enemy, either.
Blood Spiller was released in season 1 as part of the battle pass rewards.
Full Metal Vengeance
Take a large metal box that fires bullets and make it look like a patriot’s personal piece from 1940 and what you’re left with is Full Metal Vengeance.
This blueprint takes the Bren as applies a classical American “army green” to its base. Complete with a somewhat ironic Queen’s Model 11 back hand grip and a 1.35x lens, this blueprint somehow manages to make the Bren look like a huge weapon on one end and a small marksman’s rifle on the other. The amateurly pasted General’s star on the center of the weapon doesn’t hurt to pull in that classic toy soldier aesthetic, either.
Full metal Vengeance was released in season 1 as part of the Gunroom bundle.
Altered Suppression is the kind of blueprint where the more you look at it, the more questions you slowly acquire. The more you look at it, the more there is to look at, you know? The more you look at Altered Suppression, the more you appreciate it. It isn’t sticking to one strict theme, it isn’t trying to do too much, and yet, somehow, it manages to do a lot more than many of the blueprints in Warzone altogether.
The Oak & Shield stock goes for a sharp black finish with a white skull plastered over it. Simple, and straightforward. Moving up from that, though, is the center of the weapon: Autumn colors of orange, yellow, grey, and white are painted in wavy fashion, almost representing dying leaves on a tree. From there, the weapon continues back into its pure black coating until it reaches muzzle brake attachment.
The name Altered Suppression could be a reference to the weapon’s changing designs, or it could be an extraordinarily niche reference. Either way, its design is one of a kind in more ways than one
Altered Suppression was released in season 1 of Warzone as part of the Prairie Fire bundle.
The Bren might not be the most glamorous weapon to use for long range skirmishing, and lord knows it has its issues in CQC situations, but when push comes to shove you won’t find a more consistent weapon for mid to long-range skirmishes. And, ultimately, that kind of consistency is what wins players games over the long-term. Not glamour.
Whether or not Raven Software are currently brainstorming changes to shake up the Caldera meta remains to be seen. What doesn’t is the Bren’s excellent blueprints. This is especially important for the Bren, since you’ll likely be looting and waiting in a camping position with it and will need some eye candy to help pass the moments in between firefights.
