Best Rebirth Island loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 2

Warzone Rebirth Island

You may have your favorite weapons for CoD: Warzone, but Rebirth Island is a different ballgame. Here are the best Rebirth Island Loadouts for Warzone Pacific Season 2.

While Warzone‘s battle royale mode is by far the most popular, Rebirth Island allows for a faster and more condensed BR experience. With smaller lobbies, a much smaller map, and quicker gas cycles, Rebirth almost feels like a completely different game.

The same goes for the weapons used on Rebirth Island. Caldera’s layout requires a mix of ranged and close combat weaponry. However, Rebirth Island’s compact layout favors close to medium-range weapons with a high rate of fire.

If you’re looking to dive into Rebirth Island action, we’ve got the best loadouts for Rebirth Island that you’ll want to use.

Best Warzone Rebirth Island loadout

Cold War AK-47 – hybrid Warzone/Rebirth loadout

Cold War AK47 in Warzone
  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Grip: Serpent Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 RND Mag
  • Fifth Attachments: Either Microflex LED or Tiger Team Spotlight

It might be best for those getting used to Rebirth Island to use a weapon you’re familiar with. The AK-47 is still regarded as one of the best weapons in CoD: Warzone. Swap out a few of the attachments to favor ADS Speed over range, and you’re good to go.

The fifth attachment slot is up to personal preference. If you are fine with iron sights, then use the Tiger Team Spotlight. If you can’t use iron rights, use the Microflex LED.

MW Kar98k – Best Rebirth Sniper Loadout

Player using Kar98k in Warzone
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″

The Kar98k has remained at the top of the Sniper tier list since Modern Warfare’s release. It is currently one of the most popular weapons across Warzone and it has a ton of value on Rebirth Island.

This build uses attachments that focus on ADS Speed and you’ll definitely have to be quick enough to hit your shots on Rebirth Island. The second enemies take notice of you, your window of opportunity will close.

Rebirth Island is a lot of running and gunning, and snipers don’t usually fit into that meta. But this Kar98k build allows fans of the sniper to use a long-ranged weapon on Rebirth.

Owen Gun – Best “Overkill” Secondary for Rebirth

Vanguard Owen Gun SMG
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Hockenson 142mm Rapid
  • Optic: M38/Slate 2.5x Custom
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 72 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk: Acrobatic
  • Perk: Quick

Some players may prefer the “Overkill” perk to carry around some extra firepower. If that’s the case, you should definitely be running this build of the Owen Gun as your secondary. SMGs fit perfectly into the Rebirth Island meta, and the Owen Gun can be your best friend.

Again, its attachments are slightly different than a Warzone build. It favors the Hockenson 142mm Rapid barrel over the Gawain 188mm Shrouded for increased fire rate. And while many players prefer the Slate Reflector, the M38/Slate 2.5x Custom will provide a better sight picture.

Vargo 52 – Best SMG/Assault Rifle Hybrid

Vargo 52 AR
  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.6″ Task Force
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 RND

The Vargo is a Black Ops Cold War AR that made its way to Warzone during Pacific Season 2. It has immediately turned into a fan favorite weapon thanks to its ease of use and aiming stability.

The Vargo 52 is a highly versatile weapon that can be used in several scenarios. You can also equip an Axial Arms 3x if you want it to rival the Cold War AK-47 at greater distances but the attachments above will focus on close-quarters combat.

Welgun – Best SMG loadout for Warzone Rebirth Island loadout

Welgun SMG Vanguard
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: 320mm SA Shrouded
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 9mm 64 Round Magazine
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk 1: Gung-Ho
  • Perk 2: Quick

Many players, especially those who play primarily on Rebirth Island, agree that the Welgun is currently the best SMG in Warzone. And when it comes to Rebirth, it’s considered one of the best weapons… period.

Since you won’t be fighting many ranged battles, you’ll need weapons with a high fire rate and deal considerable damage up close. The Welgun checks both of those boxes, giving it an insanely low TTK.

Best Perks for Warzone Rebirth Island loadout

Players will also notice a difference when it comes to preferred perks on Rebirth Island. Here are the perks you should be rocking while fragging out on the Island.

Perk 1

  • Cold Blooded

With Rebirth Island being so small, you’ll need every advantage to stay out of the enemy’s sight. Cold Blooded will keep you hidden longer and allow you to get the jump on your opponents. This also counters the overpowered Combat Scout perk.

Perk 2

  • Tempered
  • Overkill
Warzone Rebirth Island

Players will be in combat almost constantly on Rebirth Island, and the loot pool is pretty limited. The Tempered perk allows players to take advantage of every Armor Plate. This also allows you to stay or get back into a fight much quicker.

However, if you need that extra firepower, it’s acceptable to rock Overkill. You might be sacrificing the utility of Tempered, but a second primary might be worth it.

Perk 3

  • Amped
  • Combat Scout

Amped is the preferred third perk because it gives players the speed they need on Rebirth Island. Whether it’s swapping between weapons to finish a kill or throwing equipment faster, Amped gets the job done,

However, Combat Scout can be a menace, especially on Rebirth. The temporary wall-hacks it gives players are unbeatable on a map like Rebirth Island. The only issue is if players have the Cold-Blooded perk, which negates the effects of Combat Scout.

What you choose for your Lethal and Tactical equipment can be the difference between life and death. Here is the equipment you should be using on Rebirth Island

For your Lethal, you should be using a Throwing Knife. Throwing a knife quickly after you’ve knocked an enemy ensures that they will not get back up.

And for your Tactical, the best choice is a Stun Grenade. This Tactical will be a valuable tool to check corners and clear buildings. Rebirth Island is full of players playing tight corners, so checking the area with a Stun is always a great idea.
