JGOD Warzone Season 5 Reloaded

Here are the weapons you need to use in Warzone Pacific Season 5 Reloaded as JGOD reveals the final meta before Warzone 2 arrives.

It’s fitting that Warzone Pacific’s final season has seen a wide variety of weapons across Modern Warfare, Cold War, and Vanguard rise to the top. The Season 5 Reloaded meta is quite balanced and there’s not one weapon in particular that stands out as overpowered.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded is a celebration of the game’s nearly three-year cycle which saw some memorable metas come and go from Verdansk to Caldera. With the Season 5 Reloaded update, Raven ensured that Cold War and Modern Warfare weapons returned as ground loot.

Nonetheless, Vanguard weapons still reign supreme according to Warzone expert JGOD. Both the long-range meta and close-range meta see two weapons stand out above the rest. These top weapons are not as broken as top weapons of the past, but JGOD believes they’re still the cream of the crop.

JGOD has the UGM-8 LMG ever so slightly edging out the EM2 Assault Rifle as the best long-range weapon in Warzone. Meanwhile, he believes that the H4 Blixen and Armaguerra continue to be the best SMGs in the game despite Season 5 Reloaded nerfs.

The SMG options offer players a choice between the easy-to-use Armaguerra and harder-hitting H4 Blixen. JGOD explains that the Blixen’s “recoil is a little bit harder” to control, which makes the weapon’s viability dependent on your accuracy.

While a buff has made the EM2 rise up the ranks, it’s the UGM-8 that steals the show despite receiving nerfs: “The absolute meta I think right now is still the UGM.” Due to the weapon’s decent damage, large magazine size, and fast fire rate, it’s impossible to ignore.
