A Warzone content creator has revealed a Welgun loadout with secret attachments, allowing the SMG’s firepower to rival the popular MP40.

While using the most popular attachments on top Warzone weapons is always a great strategy, sometimes it pays off to experiment with different builds. Warzone Pacific content creator Metaphor often tweaks attachments in order to maximize a weapon’s potential.

The Warzone expert recently did so with the MP40 and claimed that it was the best SMG in the game. However, a few unique attachment choices for the Welgun can elevate the weapon’s firepower allowing it to rival the MP40.

The Welgun is considered one of the best SMGs in Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded. Rankings are sure to change when the major Season 3 update rolls around, but for now the Welgun, MP40, and Owen Gun are the top three options.

There’s very little to separate the three weapons at the moment but when it comes to popularity, the MP40 is the clear favorite as the current most used weapon in Warzone.

However, Warzone expert Metaphor has created the perfect Welgun loadout that proves the SMG deserves more appreciation.

Metaphor’s Welgun SMG Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: 240mm Hockenson 43
  • Optic: GW 03
  • Stock: SA 43 Folding
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 40 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Grip
  • Perk 1: Fleet
  • Perk 2: Quick

While some of Metaphor’s preferred attachments like the Recoil Booster and Lengthened ammo are standard for the Welgun, others are unique selections that enhance the weapon’s firepower and speed.

Perhaps the most impactful change comes by equipping the 240mm Hockenson 43 barrel instead of the 320mm SA Shrouded. This barrel limits damage falloff when aiming at distant targets and it also increases limb damage.

The attachment essentially makes the Welgun hit really hard at the cost of some recoil control which is a similar quality to the MP40. Since damage doesn’t drop off at range you can use this Welgun as the perfect Sniper support weapon.

Another thing you’ll notice is insane strafe speed thanks to the Groove Grip and SA 43 Folding stock. This incredible speed makes the weapon just as dangerous up close, meaning you’ll win more gunfights thanks to its astounding strafe capabilities.
