The most popular Warzone weapon loadouts of October have been revealed, and there’s been a few changes in the standings as the meta slowly shifts throughout Season 6.

While the initial release of Warzone saw guns like the M4A1 and Bruen — which NICKMERCS thinks is making a revival — dominate the meta, this has slowly changed in recent months, as players better learn the game and adapt to patches.

Now, you’ll often see players knocking about with a low-recoil, high-magazine assault rifle as well as an MP5 or some form of shotgun in their back pocket.

But what loadouts were actually the most popular throughout October? Let’s take a look.

Warzone Season 6 kicked off at the end of September, meaning throughout October players were trying some new weapons, attachments, and more.

For the most part, at the very top, things haven’t changed much. As you could imagine, the Kilo remains the most popular weapon in the game, while the MP5 and the Grau are still very common picks. After that, though, it changes slightly.

Here were the top five Warzone loadouts in October, according to Lootshare — but scroll down to find out some of the other super-popular class setups, too:

  1. Kilo 141
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8” Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags
  1. MP5
  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  1. Grau 5.56
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags
  1. Kar98k
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb
  1. HDR
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 26.9″ HDR Pro
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Variable Zoom Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Stalker-Scout

This is fairly similar to how things looked in September, though the Kar98k has now officially overtaken the HDR for those who prefer to run around with a sniper. What’s more interesting is some of the changes that have occurred outside of the top five.

Flying up the rankings is the SP-R208 marksman rifle, which a lot of snipers have switched to given its pinpoint accuracy at almost any range, being much more reliable when trying to tag up enemies from afar. Couple it with a laser, the Solozero SP-R28mm optic and the .338 Lapua Mag, and you’re onto a winner.

We’ve also seen a big uptick in the popularity of the M13 and CR-56 AMAX assault rifles, and the Origin shotgun has dropped all the way down to 15th! This makes sense given the M13’s low recoil, the AMAX’s popularity among streamers who can control it, and the Origin’s nerfs at the end of September.

Obviously, you should always use your favorite weapons and what you feel best with, but you could definitely use these loadouts for inspiration, especially if there are weapons or particular builds you’ve never used before.

You never know, you might just find the loadout that gets you some of your biggest wins yet.

These contain access to your loadout and other items.

For newcomers, you may be wondering how it is you can even equip your specialist loadout. After all, starting with a pistol doesn’t scream loadout freedom.

All you need to do to be able to use your loadout in-game is scavenge $10,000 and get yourself a loadout drop from the Buy Station.

Some of these weapons have stood the test of time in Warzone and continue to be the go-to guns for guaranteed success. You may be using some of these already, but have you necessarily got the right attachments for them as well?

These are some of the most popular guns and attachments in Warzone.

Kilo 141

The Kilo 141.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

This ultra-reliable assault rifle is a god-tier weapon that has won many a player many a game.

These attachments make it quite a good utility gun and extremely powerful. Favoring power and precision, this setup makes the Kilo 141 effective at range and is basically an all-purpose killer across a sprawling Battle Royale map.

MP5

The MP5.
  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

A classic weapon in the lineage of Call of Duty.

The MP5 is a quick, accurate, powerful killer. Its great iron sight allows for an extra attachment where it really counts, meaning you can snap to a target quicker. These lightweight settings allow you to sprint around the map and provide a quicker gathering of tools and faster looting.

Grau 5.56

The Grau 5.56.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The Grau’s lesser recoil and damage over long-distances make it a killer companion to have.

With these attachments on the gun too, you really have yourself a versatile weapon that is effective at all ranges. Not only that, but a higher magazine and walking stability make the Grau 5.56 an extremely viable option in Warzone.

Bruen Mk9

The Bruen MK9.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: XRK Summit 26.8″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

An LMG in the best loadout guide? Surely not?

Surely yes. By reducing its magazine size and stabilizing its accuracy, it becomes a potent killer with high damage. Then you add an optic onto the top of it, and the Bruen suddenly becomes a weapon of mass destruction on the battlefield.

Kar98K

The Kar98k.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

One shot, one kill.

The effectiveness of the Kar98K naturally hinges on the user’s ability to wield it accurately. But if so, then it’s an unstoppable one-hit machine. As a rifle, it naturally has a slower rate of fire, but its stopping power makes up for this tenfold. Attach a long scope and decrease the ADS time, and you can spot and snap an enemy in a split-second.

Five deadly, dynamic combinations that are winning formulas in the Warzone. You shouldn’t even need to test your skills in the Gulag with one of these loadouts in your arsenal.

Hopefully you enjoyed our 5 best loadouts in Call of Duty: Warzone and may it bring you more wins.
