Warzone NZ41 loadoutActivision

The best NZ-41 Warzone loadout is extremely powerful and luckily, we’ve got the strongest attachments and Perks for the Assault Rifle to complement the ultimate class setup in CoD Warzone.

CoD Vanguard’s NZ-41 is a fast-firing AR that absolutely shreds in the right hands. The weapon has risen up through the ranks in Season 4 and established itself as one of the strongest weapons in the game.

While the popular AR did receive a set of heavy nerfs in the Season 4 Reloaded patch, it’s still a force to be reckoned with on Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Of course, it’s key you choose the right set of attachments to boost your mobility, ADS speed, and overall TTK. Once you’re kitted out with this setup, you’ll be tearing through squads across any playlist.

So here’s a full rundown on everything you need to equip the best NZ-41 Warzone loadout.

The NZ-41 can be almost unstoppable with the right Warzone loadout.
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Ravenwood 480mm No. 2
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Orbweaver Folding
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 50 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip 
  • Perk 1: Brace 
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

In building the optimal NZ-41 loadout in Warzone, you want to lean into its base strengths. That’s why almost every attachment in our class improves mobility, recoil control, or fire rate.

Starting out with the latter, the Recoil Booster Muzzle has become a staple pick across almost every AR build in the game. Its impact is essential here with the NZ-41 and will help you down targets before they can even react.

Next comes the Ravenwood 480mm No. 2 Barrel for a slight boost to both ADS speed and recoil. With only a few options in this category, we’ve settled on the pick with the least significant downsides. There’s no reason to hinder your own potential, after all.

Similarly, that logic applies with the Slate Reflector Optic as well. While it doesn’t provide a noticeable zoom, it’s one of few attachments with no negative effects. Considering the pace you’ll be playing at with the NZ-41, you can’t go wrong with the Slate Reflector.

Mobility is key with this NZ-41 loadout so it’s impossible to pick against the Orbweaver Folding Stock.

For the right NZ-41 Stock, we’ve picked up the Orbweaver Folding to further improve mobility. Everything from ADS speed and Sprint to Fire speed is improved with this attachment alone, making it one of the strongest in the entire class.

Another slight accuracy buff comes from the M1941 Hand Stop underbarrel. It’s hardly an essential pick as Underbarrels rarely make or break a loadout, but it’s clearly the top of its category.

When it comes to the magazine, we’ve opted to go for the 6.5mm Sakura 50 Round Mags which will ensure you can take out multiple opponents without having to reload.

Flinch Resistance will keep your shots on point against all incoming fire in Warzone.

Rounding things out we have the Lengthened Ammo Type to increase bullet velocity and the Polymer Grip Read Grip for yet another slight buff to recoil control.

Finally, for weapon perks, there’s nothing more powerful than the Brace and Fully Loaded combo. The former provides a huge boost to flinch resistance while the latter ensures you’ll rarely run dry on ammo.

Best NZ-41 Warzone setup (Perks & Equipment)

Picking the right perks and equipment is just as important as the best attachments.
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Marco 5
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stim

When picking the best Perks for the job, you want to prioritize speed once again with this NZ-41 build. Therefore, we’ve settled on the standard E.O.D., Overkill, and Amped to bring the most out of this loadout.

Given the NZ-41’s fast pace, having a top-tier Secondary to swap to is crucial. If you run out of ammo mid-fight, there’s nothing better than having a fresh Marco 5 on hand. Another option is of course the H4 Blixen, a deadly SMG that provides a little more range than other guns in the category.

Meanwhile, for Lethal and Tactical equipment, there’s nothing better than the simple Frag Grenade and Stims combo.

Frags are elite as you can time a perfectly cooked nade for any situation. While Stims are a staple in Warzone to gain a huge movement buff ahead of any upcoming fight.
