A powerful Vanguard LMG is being overlooked by the Warzone community despite having the highest win rate in the game.

Season 5 Reloaded arrived in Warzone on September 28 and marked the end of an era as the title’s final major update.

Alongside a set of hefty balance changes to underused weapons, Raven also introduced a brand new AR and LMG to the arsenal.

While both guns were forgotten almost immediately by the community, it’s the Lienna 57 LMG that select players are having plenty of success with.

Although the gun has an extremely low pick rate, it’s managed to achieve the highest win rate in the Warzone, showcasing it can be dominant in the right players’ hands.

Compared to ARs and SMGs, the LMG category is extremely overlooked as they often lack the mobility required to outplay opponents during skirmishes.

Despite this, they can be devastating at long range and this is certainly the case for the Lienna 57 LMG that’s capable of wiping out enemies in an instant.

The build above focuses on maximizing the weapon’s damage while also bolstering its recoil, making it easy to laser beam foes from a distance.

Keep in mind, we recommend running Overkill with this setup so you can utilize the Armaguerra or MP40 for close-range encounters.
