Warzone Season 3 brought in many changes to the battle royale, including a drastic shift in the close-range meta. CoD expert JGOD has broken down which is the best weapon for close-quarters combat after the Season 3 update.
Snipers certainly took the biggest hit, but nerfs also came to some of the major players in the SMG category, including the MP40. So much so, that those who like to run the strongest builds may be struggling to know which to choose as sniper support in the new season.
Luckily, CoD guru JGOD has revealed the very best close-range weapon for Warzone Season 3.
In his April 30 video, JGOD claimed that the Owen Gun should be players’ first choice for close-quarters combat in Warzone Season 3. Despite receiving a slight nerf in the patch, JGOD called it the best SMG “because of its versatility in different modes with its larger mag.”
He added that while the changes to its damage with certain attachments are “noticeable,” it’s still “pound-for-pound one of the best guns in the entire game.”
JGOD then went on to break down the best build for the Owen Gun in Warzone Season 3, check it out below.
JGOD’s best Owen Gun loadout in Warzone Season 3
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Hockenson 142mm Rapid
- Optic: Nydar Model 47

- Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 72 Round Drums

While the Owen Gun will no doubt be many players’ go-to in the close-range meta now, many of the other weapons that were nerfed more significantly are still options.
Ultimately, players should choose the weapon they are most comfortable with and best suits their style of play.
