Some powerful weapons from MW2 remain popular in Warzone Season 2.

Following the integration, Raven Software shared that their goal for weapons within Warzone was to “bring weapons as close to the intended time-to-kill range,” including “title-specific weapon balance being implemented where needed.”

This means that MW2 guns will match the competitive level of MW3’s weaponry. However, MW3 weapons are set to remain popular in Warzone since they are part of the premium CoD title in progress.
