No recoil Warzone Assault Rifle is long-range beast but no one is using it

There are plenty of top-tier Assault Rifles to choose from in Warzone, but there’s one incredibly powerful long-range option with zero recoil that’s being completely slept on by the community.

Warzone’s long-range meta is closer than ever in Season 3, with LMGs like the Bruen Mk9 or Assault Rifles like the BP50 dominating since the update. However, the SVA 545 is also extremely effective at long-range but it is being mostly ignored by players.

It has a competitive TTK that can more than rival the BP50 in longer-range gunfights, but its pick rate is just 0.85% according to Meanwhile, options like the SOA Subverter and Bruen Mk9 are being used by over 9% of the community each.

In my experience, the SVA 545 has virtually no recoil, making it ridiculously easy to use at all distances. Although it has a slightly slower fire rate than other guns in its class, it remains laser-accurate so your shots land far more constantly, bringing the realistic TTK down.

It’s also significantly more lightweight than the bulky LMGs that have taken over the meta, so there’s no need to sacrifice mobility for long-range power. To get the most out of it, be sure to check out our best SVA 545 loadout for Season 3.

The SVA 545 was a common choice towards the end of Season 2 but its popularity has dipped since the Season 3 update and the rise of more MW2 weapons. However, the community is starting to change its tune as even some high-profile streamers have been singing its praises.

CoD pro FaZe Swagg called it the “best Assault Rifle” in Warzone, while WhosImmortal included it in his countdown of the 10 best weapons in the game.

The latter even recommended switching the SVA 545 to semi-auto mode to make use of the gun’s exclusive ability to fire two shots at once. However, even if you prefer to stick with the full-auto fire rate, it’s still a top-tier Assault Rifle that can go toe-to-toe with any gun in the game at long range.

More balancing changes are expected to arrive in the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update, so as other meta picks are handed nerfs, don’t be surprised to see the SVA become even more dominant going forward.
