Call of Duty Warzone offers up an incredible arsenal to choose from as well as what attachments to equip with each weapon and other available gear. Furthermore, you can pick up blueprints throughout the map which will give you a weapon that comes with attachments already. That being said, what weapon you choose to use can make all the difference in whether or not you win. There are many different factors in what makes a gun the best gun including distance, handling, reload, rate of fire, and of course, damage. Furthermore, each gun is more useful than others depending on the situation you find yourself in. Below are the top ten guns in Warzone with the fastest time to kill in particular order as each of them excels in certain situations and the meta is constantly evolving with updates. With the best weapons in your hand you will be able to employ the best strategies and you might as well as make sure you look your best while you are at it. DPS and RPM values used in this article were pulled from this spreadsheet created by TheXclusiveAce.
The M16 is a classic weapon when it comes to Call of Duty and should be no surprise to see it included on this list. Its burst fire makes it perfect for engaging at long range. The M16 has a rate of fire of 909 RPM and does 50 damage. With the right attachments the M16’s deadliness increases dramatically. The Agency Silencer will decrease bullet velocity but increases your control and decreases muzzle flash. The 16.3” Titanium barrel will further increase your control. Equipping the SAS combat stock will increase your strafe speed, giving you an edge in those 1v1 fights. Because the M16 excels at long range, the Axial Arms 3x optics is very important to making sure each shot lands. And to get even more shots you will want the Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag which increases ammo capacity and reload speed.
9. Akimbo Diamatti
For handguns you will want to get your hands on a pair of Diamatti in order to carry it akimbo style. The Diamatti does 80 damage and has a fire rate of 1028 with a DPS 1371. You will definitely want the 6.5” Takedown and Agency Suppressor to increase control as with the akimbo style you cannot aim down sights. The Salvo 30 Rnd Mag will increase ammo capacity as well as making reloads faster. Lastly the Swat 5mw Laser will increase accuracy and terrify your opponent when they see both red lasers coming their way.
8. Cold War MP5
The MP5 is a fully automatic submachine gun that is perfect for a run and gun style of play. This SMG does 34 damage to the body with a rate of fire of 833 allowing you to deal 472 damage per second. Headshots will deal 49 damage and bump your damage per second to 680. With the right attachments you can increase your damage, control, and accuracy with each having drawbacks and perks. The Agency Suppressor will reduce damage range but increase recoil control. The 9.5” Task Force will improve handling and sprint to fire time. The Field Agent Grip further increases recoil control. Perhaps the best attachment is the Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag as it increases reload speed as well as ammo capacity. And finally, the Raider Stock increases sprint to fire time and walking speed.
Next on the list is the MG34 which is a light machine gun. This weapon is capable of doing 34 damage and has a fire rate of 870 making its DPS 493. The damage increases for headshots to 46 and a DPS of 667. Equipping the Compensator will reduce vertical recoil but increase horizontal recoil. To counteract this drop in horizontal recoil you will want to equip the Merc Foregrip. The Tac Laser will increase accuracy as well. To increase the amount of ammunition the MG34 carries you will want to equip the 100 Round Belt. And naturally for longer shots you will want the VLK 3.0x Optic.
The VAL is an assault rifle that offers a high rate of fire and accuracy. It is capable of dealing 37 damage with a rate of fire 923 making its DPS 569. By aiming for the head, you will bump that damage up to 47 which brings the DPS to 723. The VLK 200mm Osa barrel will increase range and bullet velocity. The Ranger Foregrip makes the VAL easier to handle by reducing recoil. Equipping the 30 Rounds Mags will increase the firing capabilities of this assault rifle. To reduce recoil even further you will want the Rubberized Grip Tape attachment. And lastly, the VLK Strelok will increase your accuracy even further.
The AMAX is a powerful and compact assault rifle that is deadly at mid-range combat. It puts out 42 damage at a rate of fire of 645 putting its DPS at 452. Headshots will increase the damage to 56 and the DPS to 602. By equipping the Monolithic Suppressor muzzle flash concealment will increase making it harder to be spotted. The XRK Zodiac S440 increases damage range, bullet velocity and recoil control. The Commando Foregrip will further reduce recoil. To better take advantage of this reduced recoil equip the 45 Round Mags to have increased ammo capacity. While the AMAX excels at mid-range combat, equipping the VLK 3.0x Optic will let you use this rifle at greater distances.
The FFAR is an assault rifle that features a fast fire rate and quick reload speed. It is able to deal 33 damage at a rate of 909 and a DPS of 500 and aiming for the head will increase the damage to 45 and the DPS to 682. While the Agency Suppressor will decrease the bullet range and velocity, it more than makes up for it with increased vertical recoil control and muzzle flash concealment. The 19.5” Task Force will increase the bullet range and velocity to cancel out the drop in these stats. Equipping the Field Agent Grip will further increase your recoil control. The Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag will increase ammo capacity and reload speed. Finally, the Raider Stock will increase sprint to fire time as well as aim walking movement speed.
The FAL is a semi-automatic assault rifle with a high rate of fire. It deals 58 damage with a rate of fire of 500 with a DPS 483. Headshots will increase the damage to 100 and raise the DPS to 833. The Monolithic Suppressor will decrease muzzle flash. Equipping the XRK Marksman will increase damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control. The 30 Round Mags will increase the FAL’s ammo capacity. To make sure these extra rounds come out quicker and more accurate you will want to equip the FSS Close Quarters Stock for increased aim down sight speed. Lastly the Sleight of Hand perk will increase reload speed.
The MAC-10 is a submachine gun that features a fully automatic fire rate with improved handling speeds. This SMG is capable of dealing 25 damage with a fire rate of 1111 which makes its DPS 463. Headshots will increase the damage 30 and DPS respectively to 556.
Equipping the Agency Suppressor will increase vertical recoil control and muzzle flash concealment at the cost of bullet range and velocity. To balance these stat drops out you will want to also equip the 5.9” Task Force. To further increase recoil, control the Field Agent Grip will be your best bet. The STANAG 53 Rnd Drum will greatly increase ammo capacity at the cost of reload speed. And last but not least is the SAS Combat Stock which will increase shooting move speed as well as aim walking speed.
The Fennec is a submachine gun with an aggressive and accurate rate of fire. The Fennec deals 25 damage at a rate of fire of 1111 which puts its DPS at 463. Landing headshots will increase the damage to 40 and the DPS to 741. The ZLR 18” Deadfall barrel will increase aim down sight speed as well as suppress your shots. The Merc Foregrip will reduce recoil to make each shot count. As if this SMG wasn’t deadly enough the 40 Round Drum Mags will increase ammo capacity. Equipping the Stippled Grip Tape will further increase aim down sights speed and sprint to fire speed. And finally, you will want the Sleight of Hand perk to increase reload speed.
Having the right weapon in the right situation is definitely important in Call of Duty Warzone, but you will also need the right equipment outside of the game as well. For visuals you will want the best monitor or tv to make sure your display is perfect. For console players you will want to have the most current generation and for those who play on PC the best desktop or laptop is crucial to performance. You will want to round out your PC setup with an excellent mouse and keyboard for better control. A headset is also critical as you will need to be able to hear small sounds in order to pinpoint enemy location and what weapons they are using. Finally, you can’t go wrong picking up some extra accessories to just be sure you have the perfect setup because comfort is key for longer gaming sessions.
