Best short-range MW2 weapons to level up before Warzone 2

  • Fennec 45 – SMG
  • Lachmann Sub – SMG
  • Vaznev-9k – SMG

The best close-range weapons in Warzone 2 highlight SMGs with blistering quick TTKs and ADS speeds. Accuracy is not as important when it comes to fighting up close, which makes the Fennec 45, Lachmann Sub, and Vaznev-9k the ideal MW2 weapons to level up.

TrueGameData explains that the Fennec 45 was the SMG that stood out the most ahead of Warzone 2: “The one that stands out the most to me is the Fennec because it has the most range.”

Best long-range MW2 weapons to level up before Warzone 2

  • Kastov 762 – Assault Rifle
  • Lachmann 556 – Assault Rifle
  • TAQ-56 – Assault Rifle
  • RPK – LMG
  • EBR-14 – Marksman Rifle

Given how large Al Mazrah is and the open nature of the environment, TrueGameData believes that prioritizing accuracy above all else is the key to discovering the best long-range weapons in Warzone 2. “It’s usually the most important thing, even more important than time-to-kill,” he explained.

The Lachmann 556, TAQ-56, and EBR-14 are steady options that will make hitting long-range targets as simple as possible. If you’re confident in your ability to tame a slightly greater recoil kick, then the RPK and Kastov 762 pack more of a punch. Keep in mind that the RPK is going to offer less mobility than the other top options above.
