Warzone players fed up with bugged games after Season 1 Reloaded patch

Warzone guru Swagg has outlined an SMG that can absolutely dominate in Season 1 Reloaded following the nerf to the WSP Swarm with an “insane” TTK. 

With each new seasonal update, the Warzone devs typically make some big changes to the battle royale’s meta that force players to try something new and change their favorite loadouts in some way.

That has been the case with Warzone Season 1 Reloaded too, with assault rifles, SMGs, and LMGs all being changed in a pretty big way. SMGs went under the knife in a big way with the ISO 9MM being nerfed and the Rival-9 benefiting from some buffs. 

The controversial WSP Swarm was nerfed a few days after the big seasonal update, prompting players to switch to other SMGs. One of the early popular picks was the AMR9, but there are other options out there. 

Best Striker 9 loadout in Warzone Season 1 Reloaded

FaZe Clan’s Swagg has highlighted the Striker 9 as the “best” new SMG out there for players because it has an “insane” TTK.

The Striker was buffed in the Season 1 Reloaded update as its near and mid damage values were both increased. However, it also benefits from the introduction of the JAK BFB Muzzle, which massively nerfs any recoil

Using that new muzzle on the Striker makes the SMG “too broken” according to Swagg, but it also uses the High Grain rounds and 50 Round drum to really hammer home its power. 

  • Barrel: Striker Elite Long Barrel
  • Muzzle: JAK BFB
  • Ammunition: 9mm High Grain Rounds
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum
  • Stock: No Stock

While the aforementioned AMR9 has proven to be a popular pick, the Striker is clearly up there and something that should be considered if you’re still looking for another SMG to use. 

As ever, if the SMG proves to be too overpowered following the recent changes then, it will be nerfed itself at some point. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see if it does become a problem like the Swarm.
