Despite there being over 40 new Vanguard weapons in Warzone Pacific, a fan-favorite Modern Warfare Assault Rifle is proving to be superior to its newest competition.

Since Vanguard weapons joined the pool of options in Warzone Pacific many top choices have come and gone. At first, it seemed like Vanguard weapons would dominate the battlefield, but now one forgotten MW weapon is reclaiming its throne as the top Assault Rifle option.

Warzone players who refuse to embark on the grueling journey of leveling up Vanguard weapons will be pleased to hear that this fan-favorite AR is making a significant comeback.

The Kilo 141 is proving that Warzone Pacific players don’t need Vanguard to compete with high-powered meta options. The iconic Assault Rifle from Modern Warfare certainly had a long stint in the spotlight as Warzone’s best AR before gradually fading away.

In a recent video Call of Duty content creator IceManIsaac proves that the fan-favorite AR is statistically superior to the best Vanguard weapons in certain situations.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler Barrel
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

In the video, IceManIsaac analyzes the TTK of the Kilo 141 in comparison to Vanguard’s two best Warzone weapons in the STG44 and Bren. The stats show that when ADS maneuvering is taken into consideration, the Kilo has a lower TTK than the STG44 and Bren.

The experienced CoD veteran explains that the Kilo’s biggest weakness is damage dropoff that kicks in at extremely long distances of over 50 meters.

Considering Caldera’s terrain and the nature of the majority of gunfights, the Kilo won’t suffer from this weakness often which makes it one of the best ARs in Warzone Pacific.

Many Warzone Pacific players do not own Vanguard which makes leveling up Vanguard weapons in Warzone a troublesome task especially since loadouts arrive later in Warzone Pacific matches.

This meta Kilo option offers players a solution that allows them to maintain a competitive edge, although there are other Warzone weapons with a faster TTK.
