Warzone Armaguerra 43

The Armaguerra 43 is an extremely effective SMG, and with the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment you can make the best loadout for it in Warzone Pacific Season 5 Reloaded.

The Season 5 Reloaded update brought some major to the meta in Warzone Pacific, and players are trying out different guns following the numerous buffs and nerfs to existing weapons.

SMGs are ideal weapons for close-range combat in Warzone, and the Armaguerra 43 is a great choice even after the nerfs it received in the update. You can make it even better with the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Here’s the best Armaguerra 43 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 5 Reloaded.

Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 loadout attachments

Armaguerra 43 in Warzone
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Botti 570mm Precisione
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Imerito SA Folding
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 9mm 60 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Perk 1: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Quick

We’ll start off this Warzone loadout by equipping the Recoil Booster muzzle and Botti 570mm Precisione barrel to boost the weapon’s bullet velocity and recoil control. Next, we’ll use the Taped Grip to improve mobility by boosting the sprint speed and movement speed.

The Imerito SA Folding stock and Mark VI Skeletal underbarrel will improve the weapon’s ADS movement speed. We went with the 9mm 60 Round Mags along with the Lengenthed ammo to ensure we have plenty of rounds to eliminate multiple enemies

You can use the Slate Reflector for its unobtrusive sight. The Hardscope perk will offer reduced recoil after sustained ADS, and Quick will allow you to sprint faster.

Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 Perks & Equipment

E.O.D Perk in Warzone Pacific
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

You should equip E.O.D to make you more resistant to explosive damage from thermites and grenades. Overkill lets you pair SMG with an Assault Rifle like the CR-56 AMAX for long-range combat, and Amped to quickly switch between the two weapons.

This SMG forces you up close and personal with opponents, so a well-placed Throwing Knife is the perfect way to quickly remove an enemy from the equation, and a Stim will grant you a quick health boost.
