Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Cooper Carbine
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stim

Similar to many Warzone setups, our Marco 5 loadout utilizes E.O.D, Amped, and Overkill. E.O.D greatly reduces the damage taken from non-killstreak explosives and fire, which, in a game like Warzone, is a great addition to your setup.

Amped allows you to switch between weapons faster, making it particularly useful if you do run out of bullets mid-fight. Lastly, Overkill will enable you to equip the meta Cooper Carbine loadout as your secondary.

As the Marco 5 is purely tailored around close-range combat, the Cooper Carbine is the perfect option for securing mid-range kills. Versatility is key in Warzone and having weapons that can secure kills across various distances can lead to more successful kills. 

To round off this loadout, we’ve utilized the Throwing Knife and the Stim in the Lethal and Tactical slots. The Throwing Knife is great at instantly finishing off downed enemies, which also enables you to avoid wasting ammo.

Meanwhile, the Stim gives you the ability to stave off any major damage – giving you the ability to reset fights and turn the tide of even the toughest battles.
