Warzone expert WhosImmortal has highlighted one forgotten Modern Warfare weapon that’s capable of taking out enemies faster than any of the Vanguard SMGs in Season 5 Reloaded.

The Warzone Pacific meta has shifted significantly after numerous weapons received major buffs and nerfs in the Season 5 Reloaded update. As a result, players are looking for the best guns to use.

This update has brought a few forgotten weapons back into the spotlight, and Call of Duty content creator WhosImmortal has revealed a Modern Warfare SMG that’s capable of easily outgunning Vanguard weapons.

In his October 11 video, the Warzone expert went over Season 5 Reloaded’s “Modern Warfare meta” and highlighted a few powerful weapons like the CR-56 AMAX, Grau 5.56, as well as the Bruen MK9.

One weapon of note in his list was the CX-9 SMG which currently has a low pick rate of 1.08 on WZRanked. WhosImmortal claimed that the weapon has the mobility stats TTK “to outgun Vanguard SMGS.”

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Stock: CX-FR
  • Ammunition: 50 Round Drums
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand

The Monolithic Suppressor boosts the CX-9’s damage range and bullet velocity. He went with the 5mW Laser as it improves the sprint-to-fire, making the weapon more aggressive in combat.

Lastly, he equipped the 50 Round Drums in order to boost the gun’s damage per mag. WhosImmortal praised this weapon’s capabilities and stated: “You’re gonna be flying and frying with this thing. I love it.”

The Season 5 Reloaded update boosted the weapon’s headshot and neck damage multipliers as well as its sprint-to-fire speed. Now, the weapon is a more viable pick and is worth trying out when you hop into the game.
