Best guns in Warzone Pacific Season 5 Reloaded

10. Vargo 52

Vargo 52 in Warzone

The Vargo 52 has stayed a consistently strong choice ever since it arrived, and has become a popular choice again in Season 5.

With great range and a high fire rate, the Vargo is a forgiving but powerful Cold War Assault Rifle that can suit almost any playstyle on any map. With excellent range, damage, and control, it has become an ideal weapon of choice for Warzone players. It just slightly suffers from not being able to use the 3-6x Optic.

9. H4 Blixen

H4 Blixen SMG in Warzone

The H4 Blixen was one of the best SMGs throughout Season 4 and even though it was nerfed, it’s remained one of the best weapons in Warzone.

You’ll get high mobility and a fast TTK, but it’s not as high on the list as some of the other SMGs because it’s that much harder to control during Season 5. Still, if you’re a skilled player who knows how to control recoil, you’ll have great success with the Blixen.

8. Marco 5

Marco 5 SMG in Warzone

The Marco 5 maintains its spot on the top ten list since joining the weapon pool in Season 4. Although its unique Akimbo Perk allows players to dual-wield the weapon, it’s best to use one at a time and take advantage of its high movement speed.

It has a respectable TTK and damage-per-mag but it really shines in allowing players to get around Caldera at an incredibly fast pace. If you use something heavy like the UGM-8, then the Marco could be the perfect secondary.

7. STG44

The STG44 has come and gone from Warzone’s meta, remaining a consistent and reliable choice. With all of the nerfs over the past few weeks, it’s become one of the best Assault Rifles in the game.

Although it can statistically be beaten by other weapons on this list, its high bullet velocity and low recoil make it incredibly easy to use. It’s hard to go wrong with the STG44 in Warzone Pacific Season 5 Reloaded — just be wary of its comparatively slow TTK.

6. Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle – Best Sniper Rifle in Warzone

The Warzone Season 3 update drastically changed how Snipers perform in the battle royale. Only a select few Snipers could still one-shot kill with a headshot at any distance. Luckily, the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle maintained that one-shot headshot and has flown up the rankings to be one of the best snipers Warzone has ever seen.

The Gorenko is semi-automatic with high bullet velocity and a one-shot headshot, making it extremely dominant at range. Even if you land a body shot, you’ll be able to follow up with another almost immediately which is, more often than not, enough to secure the kill.

The Gorenko is on Raven’s radar having been nerfed a couple of times, so be sure to give it a try while it’s still an incredibly powerful option.

5. Grau 5.56 – Best Modern Warfare gun in Warzone

Warzone Grau 5.56

Warzone players are always delighted when a Modern Warfare weapon arrives in the meta, and the Grau 5.56 got a significant buff in Season 5.

The Grau isn’t the absolute meta due to Vanguard weapons’ benefits outweighing what a Cold War or Modern Warfare gun can bring to the table, but that doesn’t mean the Grau isn’t a great choice.

With low recoil, a respectable TTK, and the cleanest iron sights in the game, you should absolutely try the Grau again if you haven’t already.

4. XM4 – Best Cold War gun in Warzone

XM4 Assault Rifle in Warzone

Even though Vanguard guns have dominated the meta, Cold War’s XM4 has always been able to hang with the best Vanguard guns.

The XM4 has everything you want in an Assault Rifle, having high mobility, low recoil, and solid range. While none of its stats are crazy, it’s an extremely solid choice that’ll win you a lot of gunfights regardless of the map size.

3. Armaguerra 43 – Best Warzone SMG

Warzone Armaguerra 43

Despite the abundance of top SMG options, it’s hard to go wrong with the Armaguerra 43 in Warzone Pacific Season 5. Although it has received a good few nerfs now, it’s remained the most popular gun in Warzone, and for good reason.

The Armaguerra is a little bit more difficult to use since the start of Season 5 but it will still chew through enemies’ health and armor incredibly fast. While we’ve ranked the Armaguerra the highest, a ton of other SMGs are viable this season.

2. UGM-8 – Best Warzone LMG

UGM-8 LMG in Warzone

The UGM-8 sits comfortably in Warzone’s top few weapons for a while now, and could even take the number one spot depending on your skill level. 

Although a cumbersome LMG, the UGM-8’s damage over range is what sets it apart. If you get an enemy in your sights and land your shots, you’ll be able to take them down in the blink of an eye. 

Raven Software are aware of its immense power and have dropped several nerfs over the past few weeks, but they’ve done little to tame its power. If you haven’t used the UGM-8 in Warzone Pacific Season 5 Reloaded yet, you might be sleeping on your new favorite.

1. Cooper Carbine – Best Warzone gun right now

The Cooper Carbine is an Assault Rifle known for its versatility since it entered the battle royale all the way back in Season 1. Players build it for various engagements including medium-range on Fortune’s Keep or long-range on Caldera.

This Assault Rifle doesn’t always pack the hardest punch, but it is extremely easy to control as a low-recoil weapon. Combining its low recoil with a fast TTK, the Cooper Carbine is a consistently reliable choice no matter what map you play.

While you may find it a better choice for Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep, you’ll find it a powerful choice in Caldera as well.


Those are the top 10 weapons you should be using in Warzone Pacific. Expect this list to keep on changing as weapons are buffed and nerfed. If classic multiplayer is more your cup of tea, you can check out the top 10 Vanguard weapons and what’s to come in Modern Warfare 2.
