With Season 5 significantly altering the Warzone meta, Call of Duty expert WhosImmortal has revealed the best Modern Warfare weapon for players to use after the update.

Warzone Pacific players have been wondering which weapons are now meta after the Season 5 update brought numerous weapon buffs and nerfs along with new guns like the RA 225 SMG.

There are plenty of powerful Modern Warfare weapons to choose from in the game, and Warzone expert WhosImmortal has revealed the best one to try out during Season 5.

On September 13, WhosImmortal went over his selection of the best Modern Warfare guns, including the RAM-7, PKM, M4A1, and Bruen Mk9. The number one spot on his list went to the Grau 5.56.

This Assault Rifle has grown in popularity after it received buffs to its max damage, damage range, and neck damage multiplier in Season 5. The Warzone expert described it as the “greatest weapon of all time.”

WhosImmortal’s Grau 5.56 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel / FSS 20.8″ Nexus
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

WhosImmortal uses the standard attachments that are commonly found on the best Grau 5.56 Warzone loadout. The Tempus 26.4″ Archangel barrel boosts the damage range and firepower, and the Tac Laser helps with aiming stability.

He uses both of these attachments because they are “absolutely perfect” for medium-range fights in both Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep. However, he recommends switching things up on Caldera.

When engaging in long-range battles, you can equip the FSS 20.8″ Nexus barrel to increase the weapon’s damage range and bullet velocity. You can also swap the Tac Laser with the VLK 3.0x Optic to pick off enemies from a distance.

With these attachments equipped, the Grau 5.56 Assault Rifle is capable of going toe-to-toe with some of the best Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard weapons in the game.
