Popular Call of Duty YouTuber NICKMERCS presents what he thinks is the best AS VAL loadout for Warzone that players have to try.

In light of all the new content Warzone Season 3 Reloaded has added, including a new POI, operators, and Power Grab LTM, NICKMERCS is back to show off another dominant Warzone loadout.

The gun in the spotlight today is the AS VAL, a powerful Assault Rifle that has always been considered top tier, but NICKMERCS claims this new class is a must-try.

NICKMERCS describes the AS VAL as the best “pocket weapon” in the game right now, meaning it is the best weapon to pull out and use for those close engagements.

The YouTuber shows this off in the video by running it alongside a PKM, using the LMG for the longer-ranged engagements, while the AS VAL deals with close combat.

The AS VAL is the “fastest killing” weapon in the game right now, and NICKMERCS says it’s “been that way for a long while.” This may change in a future update, but as of Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, it remains the fastest TTK Assault Rifle in the game.

  • Barrel: VLK 200MM Osa
  • Laser: None
  • Optic: None
  • Stock: Stovl 6P30 Skelet
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 30 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Rubberized Grip Tape

NICKMERCS does say the only downside to this weapon is the fact that “it doesn’t have a lot of ammo” and that the recoil can be quite difficult to handle. However, if you can work around these issues by using it in certain situations, controlling the recoil, and hitting your shots, it is the “best to put ’em down.”

“If you’ve ever trusted me, use this class”
