JGOD reveals Warzone Season 4 meta for long-range weapons
As with all major Warzone updates, Raven Software has made significant changes to weapons and their attachments. This has made room for a new long-range meta, and YouTuber JGOD has broken down the primary weapons you should be using in the Warzone Season 4 meta.
JGOD, one of the most well-known Warzone YouTubers, has been busy testing out every weapon following Season 4’s weapon balance changes. Cold War weapons’ barrels received major buffs, and the AMAX has been hit with another nerf, which is sure to shake up the popular picks.
Both the new MG 82 LMG and C58 Assault Rifle are looking to be strong choices this season, but some other outliers have also crept up the ranking.
Thanks to JGOD, here are Season 4’s long-range weapons and the ideal attachments to use with them.
JGOD’s Warzone Season 4 meta long-range weapons
According to JGOD’s data, here are the weapons with the highest time to kill at range in Warzone Season 4:
- MG 82 (CW)
- AK-47 (CW)
- AMAX (MW)
- PKM (MW)
- FFAR 1 (CW)
- Stoner 63 (CW)
- Bruen Mk9 (MW)
- Fara 83 (CW)
- Groza (CW)
- C58 (CW)
Season 4’s new MG 82 comes out on top, outshining all of the other weapons in terms of damage at range. JGOD says he has some more testing to do with this weapon, but it’s already apparent that it’s the Warzone Season 4 meta.
While the AK-47 kills fast, it might not be every player’s favorite because of its somewhat erratic recoil pattern. And the CR-56 AMAX, which has received yet another nerf, is still holding on.
The FFAR makes the list because of its fast fire rate and the fact that “its damage stays consistent at 25 damage per bullet, even at the furthest distances.” But even though it kills fast, its recoil will likely keep it from being a popular choice.
JGOD said that the FARA 83 “benefited the most” from the Season 4 buffs, and it’s the weapon with the highest chance of becoming close to the AMAX. So if you’re looking for a weapon that will make you feel like you were using the pre-nerf AMAX, the FARA is the weapon for you.

Of course, these values are dependent on your skill and accuracy. But, you’re highly likely to find your new favorite long-range weapon in this Warzone Season 4 meta list.
JGOD’s meta Cold War Assault Rifle attachments
Using the FARA 83, JGOD explained how you should build Cold War’s Assault Rifles in the Warzone Season 4 meta. Although the attachment names change between weapons, the stats remain consistent.
- Muzzle: Suppressor
- Barrel: 18.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel (last barrel)
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
- Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
JGOD said that if you’re looking for some more bullet velocity and range, you should swap out the Suppressor for the GRU Suppressor (or its equivalent).
JGOD’s meta Cold War LMG attachments
Using the Stoner 63 as an example, JGOD also demonstrated the ideal LMG build for Cold War’s weapons in the WarzoneSeason 4 meta. Similar to how he built the FARA 82
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 20.7″ Match Grade (second last barrel)
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
JGOD explained that the final attachment is completely up to you. For example, you could use a Rear Grip for extra ADS speed or perhaps a Stock for extra mobility.
