Classic Cold war AR is still a hidden gem in Warzone

An oldschool Black Ops Cold War AR has caught the eye of FaZe Booya, who has quickly demonstrated just how lethal it is in Warzone. 

The Warzone meta constantly shifts with every new update and while the top spots are dominated by Vanguard weapons, there are times when underrated guns fly under the radar. While utilizing the NZ-41 and STG44 will give you a great advantage, following the meta can lead to you missing out on some incredibly powerful picks.

In fact, a number of Modern Warfare guns like the Kilo 141 and M4A1 have been creeping into contention, securing top spots within the best Warzone AR tier list. However, there has also been one Cold War gun that continues to go unnoticed by the game’s playerbase.

Not only did this deadly weapon used to be a top meta pick, but FaZe Booya has a powerful loadout that demonstrates how the Krig 6 still has what it takes to obliterate foes in Warzone.

The Krig 6 is an underused AR in Warzone.

FaZe Booya has urged Warzone players to try out his Krig 6 loadout, which led to the content creator dropping a whopping 28 kills on Rebirth Island. The Krig 6 used to be an incredibly popular AR choice thanks to its high accuracy and great damage, but the massive weapon changes in Season 3 have pushed it to the sidelines. 

While the majority of Warzone players utilize Vanguard and Modern Warfare weapons, the Krig is still a decent choice. Currently, this Assault Rifle has a 0.65 K/D, which puts it above the Kil0 141 – another weapon that has been getting a fair amount of attention from the community.

Booya’s build predominantly focuses on reducing the gun’s vertical and horizontal recoil, while also greatly bolstering bullet velocity. This makes it perfect for taking down opponents in close to mid-range engagements. 

As a result, attachments like the Agency Suppressor, 15” CMV Mil-Spec, and Axial Arms 3x have been utilized. After all, being able to take down fully armored foes with both speed and precision is incredibly beneficial to any player looking to secure a dominant victory.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 15” CMV Mil-Spec

It’s certainly not hard to see why FaZe Booya recommended the Krig 6, so make sure you give his loadout a go when you next drop into Rebirth Island. Whether this forgotten AR has what it takes to climb up the Season 4 rankings remains to be seen, but for now, it could well give you the edge.
