The C58 has almost been forgotten in Warzone Pacific’s Vanguard-heavy meta, but the weapon actually boasts the best K/D of any Assault Rifle. 

Vanguard weapons have been dominating Warzone’s list of most popular guns, with everyone keen to try out and level up the brand-new guns. However, YouTuber JGOD recently explained that it’s Black Ops Cold War’s weapons you should be using

The C58 Assault Rifle burst into Warzone’s meta in Cold War Season 4, but nerfs and new guns arriving means it doesn’t even crack the top 20 most popular anymore. That may change, as it has the highest kill to death ratio (K/D) of any Assault Rifle in the game, and could even retake the top spot.

JGOD pointed out on January 26 that the C58 boasts the highest K/D of any weapon in the Warzone, meaning that players who use it are typically performing much better than those who use other weapons.

Now on January 28, WZ Ranked’s data reveals that the Owen Gun has overtaken the C58 by 0.1, making this Vanguard SMG the highest K/D weapon in the game. The Owen Gun currently holds an impressive 1.35 K/D, while the C58 comes in just behind at 1.34.

While there’s every chance the C58 reclaims its throne, it’s still the highest K/D Assault Rifle in Warzone Pacific Season 1. The EM2 is the next best with 1.27, and Vanguard’s Cooper Carbine comes in third with a 1.10 K/D.

JGOD explained that while the EM2 was considered overpowered, the C58 was “a hair worse.” The EM2 got nerfed while the C58 remained untouched, so many didn’t realize that it had become one of the best weapons in the game.

These are the meta attachments for the C58, and this specific build has a whoppingly high 1.52 K/D ratio.

The Agency Suppressor and Task Force Barrel increase the C58’s range and damage, making it lethal at a medium-long range. Then, the Axial Arms 3x optic offers the perfect level of magnification to hit these far-off targets.

The Field Agent Grip will keep the C58 steady, and the 45 Rnd Drum gives you enough bullets for all your battle royale needs.
