Assault Rifles are a popular pick in Warzone thanks to their versatility at all ranges, and CoD expert Metaphor has revealed a build for an underrated rifle that is so “broken” that it could even be bugged.

Warzone is packed full of weapons to try out, from deadly close-range SMGs to Sniper Rifles capable of taking out enemies from a distance. Since the Season 1 update brought all of MW3’s guns into the mix, players have been hard at work figuring out which weapons are the best in the game.

Assault Rifles are always a go-to in Warzone as they can hold their own at all ranges, with the DG-56 and MCW emerging as popular choices. However, there are plenty of hidden gems outside of the meta just waiting to be discovered.

Call of Duty expert Metaphor has revealed a loadout for one of these underrated Assault Rifles that he claims is absolutely “broken.”

In his December 27 video, the YouTuber highlighted the SVA 545, particularly when you put it into single-fire mode. While this drastically slows down the fire rate, Metaphor explained that it actually fires two shots instead of one with each squeeze of the trigger and eliminates virtually all of its recoil.

“This gun is actually insane right now and potentially even bugged,” he said in the video. “The weird part about it is that it seems to have no recoil when you do it so can actually shoot people across the map with this thing.”

Check out his best SVA 545 loadout in Warzone below.

Metaphor’s best SVA 545 loadout in Warzone

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor
  • Barrel: STV Precision Barrel
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Ammunition: 5.45 High Grain Rounds
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

Since players don’t need to use attachments to keep recoil under control, Metaphor went on to say that they can focus on range and velocity to make the SVA 545 a “monster” at all distances. While the recoil is pretty much non-existent in full-auto mode too, single-fire is the secret to success with this build.

It’s unclear whether the SVA 545 is currently bugged, or if the double fire and lack of recoil is functioning as intended. If there is a glitch, players can expect it to be patched in the coming days and weeks, but they can still make the most of it for the time being.
