Warzone content creator WhosImmortal has revealed what he believes is the best long-range weapon in Season 3 Reloaded, which may come as a surprise to players.

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded truly shook the meta when the update dropped. Not only did the devs bring changes to the amount of health players have, but they also shifted the meta in favor of Vanguard weapons.

While the STG44 and BAR have dominated the meta, Warzone expert WhosImmortal believes an underated Vanguard LMG is now the best long-range weapon in the game.

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded saw a lot of buffs and nerfs for weapons. While the Assault Rifle and SMG weapon categories are usually the most popular, LMGs are pretty understated.

One of the LMGs that was buffed in the update was the Type 11 from Vanguard, which is rarely talked about or used. Having said that, WhosImmortal says in his latest video that this weapon is now “ridiculously competitive and honestly meta for long-range”

WhosImmortal’s Type 11 loadout

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Sakura 487mm Shrouded
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Warubachi Weighted
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 90 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk2: Fully Loaded

With this loadout, the Type 11’s TTK at long-range is better than the STG44, which is currently the most popular weapon in the game. The recoil is also very easy to control at range, especially with the M1941 Hand Stop, meaning you will hit more of your shots.

The most important attachment with this Type 11 loadout is the Sakura 487mm Shrouded, which means that damage does not diminish over range. WhosImmortal states that “if you are not using this barrel, this is not a top-tier meta weapon.”

WhosImmortal does recommend running Overkill with this loadout, as you will want an SMG like the Owen Gun to cover those close-range engagements.

This Warzone Type 11 loadout is built for long-range, so we definitely advise that players use this LMG on Caldera rather than Rebirth Island.
