The kill/death ratio is a common way for Warzone players to judge a weapon’s effectiveness, and one surprising Vanguard weapon currently has the best K/D ratio in the game.

When you jump into a game of Warzone Pacific, you’ll want to equip a gun that allows you to secure numerous kills before you die, and there are plenty of high K/D weapon options to choose from.

The Armaguerra 43 dominates Warzone’s meta and has an extremely impressive K/D ratio, but it turns out that one surprising close-range weapon from Call of Duty Vanguard surpasses it in that regard.

The WZRanked website tracks the average K/D ratio of players when using certain weapons in the game, and the Combat Shotgun from Vanguard is currently the highest K/D gun in Warzone Pacific.

At the time of writing, weapons like the Armaguerra 43, H4 Blixen, and UGM-8 have impressive K/D ratios of 1.29, 1.26, and 1.25 respectively, but the Combat Shotgun has them all beat with a ratio of 1.38.

This Shotgun also has a higher win rate than them but a significantly lower pick rate, which means it’s an underrated gem that’s worth taking advantage of. You can use it to eliminate multiple foes in close-range combat.

The Combat Shotgun boasts solid damage output that allows it to dominate in tight spaces. So, it’s a great choice for the close-quarters layout of Rebirth Island, as well as in buildings on Caldera and Fortune’s Keep.

While this overlooked Vanguard weapon currently has the spotlight, we might see another weapon take its place after the Season 5 update shakes up the meta again. Until then, it’s worth trying out this weapon if you’re looking to rack up kills.
