Warzone guru and YouTuber JGOD has revealed what he thinks is the best close-quarter loadout for dominating matches in Season 2 Reloaded.

In every major update, Warzone’s arsenal of weapons continues to grow and it was certainly no different with Season 2 Reloaded. The patch added the Armaguerra 43, a deadly SMG with a lethal fire rate that’s perfect for close-range skirmishes.

Although these new guns give players more customization and choice, it makes it difficult to pinpoint which loadouts are optimal in the current meta.

While you could experiment with countless setups for yourself, it’s often better to let an expert do the thinking for you, that way you can jump into a match knowing you have an effective and strong loadout.


Luckily, Warzone YouTuber JGOD has all the answers, and he’s even revealed the best “close-quarter meta” loadout after the Season 2 Reloaded update.

It’s no surprise JGOD has picked out the MP40 for his close-range meta setup, as the SMG is currently the most popular weapon in the entire game. With a lethal TTK and impressive mobility, it’s perfect for eliminating enemies at close quarters on both Rebirth Island and Caldera.

JGOD’s loadout for the gun pushes the MP40’s fire rate to the limit while also boosting the weapon’s mobility. This is absolutely essential in chaotic skirmishes and will give you an opportunity to outmaneuver your opponents.


Alongside the MP40, the Warzone guru has decided to run the Jak-12, a Modern Warfare shotgun that has unmatched face-to-face damage.

Although the weapon has a low overall pick rate among the community, it’s slowly garnering popularity and may become a staple pick on Rebirth Island in the near future. Without a doubt, this is the gun you need to have equipped while clearing out enemies from enclosed spaces.

While these are JGOD’s top picks for the ideal “close-range meta” loadout, he showcases a range of other weapons if the MP40 and Jak 12 do not fit your style of play.


It’s worth remembering that attachments all come down to preference, so experimenting and changing them up will benefit your performance in the long run.
