Warzone 2 expert reveals “surprising” pick for best Assault Rifle in Season 3
With Warzone 2 Season 3 well underway, Call of Duty expert WhosImmortal has revealed which surprising weapon is the best Assault Rifle that players can use after the update.
When the Season 3 update arrived in Warzone 2, players began searching for the best guns to use after the meta was shaken up by weapon buffs and nerfs as well as the addition of the Intervention Sniper Rifle.
Assault Rifles continue to be a popular pick for medium-range combat situations in the Call of Duty title, and Warzone 2 guru WhosImmortal revealed which “surprise” weapon is the best one in Season 3.
WhosImmortal claims that the M13B Assault Rifle is currently the “number one” Assault Rifle in the game, and this is because of its “low recoil and realistic TTK.” This gun received buffs to its lower torso damage and mid-range damage distance in Warzone 2 Season 3.
As a result of these buffs, WhosImmortal feels that the Assault Rifle has “a lot more promise” in Season 3 and he showcased the ideal attachments that you can use to create the best M13B loadout.
WhosImmortal’s Warzone 2 M13B loadout
- Muzzle: Echoless-80
- Barrel: 14″ Bruen Echelon
- Optic: Aim OP-V4
- Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
- Magazine: 60 Round Mag
This Warzone 2 M13B loadout starts by equipping the 14″ Bruen Echelon barrel and Echoless-80 muzzle to buff the Assault Rifle’s damage range, bullet velocity, and accuracy while bringing the recoil under control so that you can stay on target.

The Aim OP-V4 optic’s precision sight picture lets you land shots with great accuracy at range. For the ammo, WhosImmortal went with the 5.56 High Velocity rounds to improve the bullet velocity, and the 60 Round Mag grants enough bullets to take down multiple foes.
The M13B Assault Rifle is currently not one of the most popular weapons in Warzone 2, as WZRanked shows that it only has a pick rate of 0.6%. The Season 3 buffs have made it a more viable option and it remains to be seen if its popularity increases in the coming weeks.
