Loadout drops offer players unprecedented battle royale weapon customization, but what are the most underrated weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone? Here, we break down the best weapons in the game, that most players won’t be running. 

As with any battle royale, a few weapons have quickly risen to the top of most Warzone players’ lists. The M4A1 and Grau are dominating assault rifle picks, while the MP7 and MP5  rule the SMG class at the moment.

However, away from the conventional choices, some weapons are criminally underrated and can get players out of sticky situations. Here, we pick the six most underrated weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Kar98k

The Kar98k is a viable sniper in Warzone.

When it comes to sniper rifles in Warzone, two rule Verdansk – the AX-50 and HDR. The Kar98k, however, is a viable alternative thanks to its much faster handling and ADS. While not as powerful as either of the aforementioned weapons, it can be used much more as a marksman rifle, rather than to eliminate players across the map.

The viability of this weapon depends on how it’s used. If you charge opponents with it, expect to die swiftly. If you keep your distance and play sensibly, it can rip through enemies’ armor at medium to long ranges.

Kilo 141

The Kilo 141 is an incredibly viable AR in Warzone.

The Kilo 141 can compete with a Grau or M4A1 in the right hands. While not as recoil-free as the Grau or down-right powerful as the M4, attachments can make a big difference to this weapon.

Throw a Monolithic Suppressor and a heavy barrel on the Kilo, and its recoil becomes instantly more manageable. Pair this with the gun’s high fire rate, and you should find yourself able to hold your own at medium range against any other AR.

PP-19 Bizon

The PP-19 Bizon is the first SMG on our list.

The biggest strength of the PP-19 Bizon is its incredibly large magazine. In Warzone, particularly in team-based modes, the 64-round magazine will enable you to stay in the action for much longer, without the need for reloading.

It does not have the damage of the MP5, but its manageable recoil and magazine capacity make it a seriously underrated SMG in Warzone, perfect for close range engagements in squad-based modes.

P90

Infinity Ward/Dexerto
The P90 is one of the most underrated weapons in the game.

Modern Warfare’s P90 is potentially the most underrated weapon on this list. The FORGE Tac Retribution barrel, paired with the Monolithic Suppressor and the gun’s natural 50-round magazines, makes this a challenger for best SMG in Warzone.

While the MP5 and MP7 currently rule the close-range meta, many players are quickly discovering how lethal a P90 can be up close. It will struggle at anything over medium-range, but if you haven’t given this a go yet, be sure to try it out next time you drop into Verdansk.

Bruen MK9

Infinity Ward/Dexerto
The Bruen MK9 is the only LMG on our list.

LMGs in Warzone can be hit or miss depending on the situation. If players are pre-aiming an unsuspecting enemy, they can be top-tier. However, their handling and mobility is often detrimental to their viability in Warzone.

One LMG that manages to surpass this is the Bruen MK9. While not as fast as an assault rifle, its damage and lack of recoil make it an incredible weapon at longer ranges. Pair this with large magazines and a surprisingly fast reload time, and the Bruen is one LMG you’ll want to try out.

RAM-7

Infinity Ward/Dexerto
We’re rounding off our list with the RAM-7.

The RAM-7’s versatility is perhaps its strongest trait. It can outclass an SMG at longer range and ARs at close range. This versatility means you can easily run a sniper rifle as your second weapon, because you’ve already got something of an SMG/AR hybrid.

We’d recommend attachments that buff its range and some optics, to keep you in the fight at all ranges. It might not be a game-changer, but it can certainly hold its own against most weapons in Warzone.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
