Best Black Ops Cold War Weapons for Warzone in Season 1

Call of Duty Warzone Season 1 introduces 30+ Black Ops Cold War weapons into the game. Here are the best weapons to use.

Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War has shook the meta of Warzone, changing the way players craft their loadouts before landing in Verdansk or Rebirth Island. Many new SMG’s and Tactical Rifles from Black Ops Cold War have seen a surge in use, out damaging Modern Warfare’s weapons.

Here’s our picks for some of the best Black Ops Cold War weapons for Season 1 of Warzone.


The FFAR is a fast firing and powerful jack-of-all-trades Assault Rifle. The extended Salvo 50 round magazine makes for large ammo counts with fast reloads, and the Raider Stock gives you the ultimate strafe speed while firing. The Bruiser Grip also has hidden stats that improve weapon handling and reduce recoil.

  • Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel – 21.2″ Ranger
  • Underbarrel – Bruiser Grip
  • Ammunition – Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag
  • Stock – Raider Stock

LW3 Tundra

The Tundra sniper is a highly powerful bolt-action rifle with a very fast bullet travel time. It’s also a new Black Ops Cold War sniper, and carries a secret advantage over the other snipers in Warzone, due to it having no glint. That’s right – enemies don’t know when you’re sniping their way. Until a proper patch is released, use this to your advantage.

  • Muzzle – Wrapped Suppressor
  • Barrel – 29.1″ Combat Recon
  • Underbarrel – Infiltrator Grip
  • Ammunition – STANAG 9 Round
  • Stock – CQB Pad

DMR 14

The DMR 14 has seen a fair share of well-deserved nerfs but still packs a punch at range, and takes down enemies with just a few well placed shots. While it cannot be spammed like it used to, it still makes a great medium range weapon to take down entire squads.

  • Muzzle – Agency Silencer
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 30 round magazine
  • Optic – Axial Arms 3x
  • Barrel – 16.3″ Titanium

MAC -10

The MAC-10 is deadly, fast firing, and decently accurate for a weapon of its power. Takedown enemies before they can react with an MP5 or any comparable SMG. The MAC 10 is king for close-range team fights, or just taking on a 1v1.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Ranger
  • Ammunition: Salvo 53 Round Fast Mag
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock


The AUG from Black Ops Cold War is insane in Warzone, one bursting enemies up close and two bursting enemies at range. Aim high for maximum damage, and get an instant down.

You can see the weapon in use by going to the 4:45 timestamp of YouTuber Westie’s video above. The loadout is as follows.

  • Barrel – 18.2″ Strike Team Barrel
  • Optic – Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 45 Round Speed Mag
  • Muzzle – Suppressor


Similar to the AUG, the M16 is also a hard hitting burst rifle. It has a bit more reliability at range than the AUG, and also a bit more stability. The choice between the M16 and AUG comes down to individual player tastes. Many marksmen will gravitate to the M16, where aggressive players may prefer the AUG.
