JGOD revealed that the H4 Blixen SMG is the best close-range option that you can use in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded thanks to its decent mobility and impressive TTK.

He stated that this SMG and the Armaguerra are both “meta chasers” in Season 3 Reloaded, but the Blixen has a “significantly better TTK in general.” He also praised the weapon’s damage-per-mag before revealing his loadout for it.

JGOD combines the Recoil Booster muzzle with the Jonsson 9″ RMK damage barrel to boost the weapon’s already impressive time-to-kill. He also listed the Karlsson 17″ Custom as a viable alternative choice for the barrel.

The Slate Reflector optic provides an unobtrusive sight, while the SG98 Compact, Grooved Grip, Quick. and Removed Stock will buff your movement speed, ADS speed, and sprint-to-fire speed.
