Vanguard’s Owen Gun has flown under the radar in Warzone Pacific but statistics from WZ Ranked show that the weapon has the second-best K/D amongst SMGs.
Since the MP40’s recent nerf, Warzone Pacific players turned to Vanguard weapons for a new close-range option on Rebirth Island and Caldera. Most players landed on the Welgun as the new SMG of choice.
Of course, the weapon that arrived with the mid-Season 1 update is an incredibly powerful option but you may be surprised to discover that the Owen Gun is right on its tail and looking to claim the top SMG spot.
The Owen Gun isn’t a particularly popular choice in Vanguard either with it being overshadowed by the MP40 and PPSH-41. However, it seems like the Owen Gun has finally earned some time in the spotlight.
According to WZ Ranked, the Owen Gun boasts a Warzone Pacific K/D ratio of 1.22 which ranks as the third-best overall weapon in Warzone as of January 24. Its main competitor in the Welgun is ranked number one with a K/D of 1.29 and the C58 splits the two with a K/D of 1.25
Call of Duty content creators have been enjoying what the Owen Gun has to offer and even though its slower-than-average fire rate may feel strange for an SMG, it has excellent damage range to compensate.
The Owen Gun has made up a ton of ground in recent months which may turn a few heads. Only a few short weeks ago the Owen Gun’s K/D was ranked 28th but it has recently shot up to third and may just take the top spot in the coming weeks.
During the same timespan, its pick ratio has also shot up from 0.4% to 1.3%. Pick ratio indicates how popular a Warzone weapon is and the MP40 is currently on top with 14.7%.
