Just because Warzone guns fall down the pecking order, it certainly doesn’t mean they aren’t worth using. The BAR has long been forgotten about, but this loadout proves that it still dominates with “zero recoil” and high damage.
Now that Vanguard’s weapons have been in Warzone for a couple of months and the overpowered outliers have been nerfed, it seems like the meta has finally settled. While the Bren is still dominant, there’s a lot more room for experimentation and Warzone pro IceManIsaac has done just that.
The BAR was a powerful choice in Warzone Pacific’s first few weeks, but its popularity dropped significantly after it was nerfed in December. However, Isaac showed that with the right loadout, it tears through enemies with high damage and low recoil.
Isaac said that he thought the BAR would be irrelevant but discovered that it has a “weird dichotomy of having insane damage, it hits like a truck, but doesn’t move at all.”

He compared it to Modern Warfare’s Oden but said that it both shoots faster and moves less, making it “incredible.”
Being conscious that “zero recoil” is a buzzword thrown around the Warzone scene, IceManIsaac said the BAR is the real deal, being on-par with the Automaton — an Assault Rifle known for having extremely low recoil. “It doesn’t make any sense considering how powerful the gun is,” he explained.
IceManIsaac BAR Warzone loadout
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: CGC 30″ XL
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: Chariot WR
- Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 8mm Klauser 30 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk 1: Hardscope
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
First, IceManIsaac uses the Recoil Booster muzzle to make the BAR shoot “crazy fast.” The CGC 30″ XL barrel gives a nice boost to its damage range and velocity, and then the m1941 Hand Stop helps keep it under control.
He said the 8mm Klauser 30 Round Mags kill even faster than the usual BMG ones, so they’re perfect for Solos. Then, Lengthened ammo counters the 8mm round’s hit to bullet velocity.
Combining the Chariot WR stock, Polymer Grip, and Hardscope perk will make the BAR barely move an inch, and then the classic SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x is perfect for medium-long range fights.
The BAR is only the 32nd most popular weapon in Warzone Pacific, but we may see it enter the top ten again once more players catch onto this powerful loadout.
