It took some time but the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle has finally risen to prominence in Warzone Pacific Season 5, so here are the attachments, Perks, and Equipment needed to craft the best loadout.

The Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle made its way to Warzone during Pacific Season 1. For several seasons it remained on the periphery of the Warzone meta as it failed to dominate the Sniper category.

However, all that has changed in Season 5 following its standout use by pro players in the WSOW tournament. Several players utilized the Gorenko to much success, and it has now become an option you won’t want to ignore.

Here’s the best Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 5.

Best Warzone Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle loadout attachments

Gorenko Warzone loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: 420mm Empress
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Reinforced Stock
  • Underbarrel: Bipod
  • Magazine: 13mm AM 10 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: FMJ Rounds
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Perk: Focus
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

The Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle is naturally slow, so we’ll begin this Warzone loadout by equipping the 420mm Empress barrel and Leather Grip which will improve ADS speed. The Mercury Silencer will keep your shots hidden and improve your Sniper’s accuracy.

The 13mm AM 10 Round Mags are the largest mag capacity for the Gorenko and it’s important to have plenty of bullets when taking on squads in Warzone. FMJ Rounds will increase your bullet penetration, which is great for when you’re trying to shoot through objects.

The SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x is the ideal optic for the Gorenko and it will allow you to adjust the magnification based on your needs in any given situation. The Reinforced Stock will further improve the weapon’s accuracy, while the Bipod will help reduce recoil.

On-Hand will improve the Gorenko’s ADS speed to a greater extent and Focus will improve flinch resistance, making it easier to hit your shots when enemies are firing at you.

Best Perks & Equipment to use with Warzone Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle

Warzone Perks on a table
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

E.O.D will come in handy when facing enemy explosives. The extra resistance it will provide could allow you to survive long enough to take out your opponents. Overkill will allow you to pair the Gorenko with a Sniper support SMG like the Armaguerra 43.

Meanwhile, Amped will allow you to quickly swap between the Gorenko and your SMG, allowing you to be prepared for every type of encounter.

The Throwing Knife is perfect for finishing off downed enemies while preserving ammunition, and the Stim will provide a vital health and movement boost in tight situations.

How to unlock Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle in Warzone

Luckily for players looking to capitalize on the Gorenko’s newfound success, the Sniper has been available completely free since Season 4 Reloaded, after Activision removed the unlock requirement for the weapon.

The original unlock requirement for players tasked them with getting 10 single-shot eliminations with Sniper Rifles in 15 different completed matches.

Best alternatives to the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle in Warzone

The 3-Line Rifle is an excellent alternative to the Gorenko in Warzone for players who enjoy utilizing the game’s Sniper Rifles. You’ll definitely notice a difference between how nimble the 3-Line Rile is compared to the Gorenko, but it certainly packs less of a punch.

Otherwise, the HDR is a heavy Sniper Rifle that could feel similar to the Gorenko in Warzone Pacific Season 5, aside from the fact that the Gorenko is a semi-automatic Sniper.
