The Warzone Pacific close-range meta has been dominated by the MP-40, but JoeWo has revealed an underrated and unique build that turns an assault rifle into a deadly SMG loadout.  

With Vanguard integration, Warzone received over 40 new weapons into its arsenal. These guns can have 10 attachments each which leads to endless loadout combinations.

This has streamers like JoeWo trying to come up with the best build possible and his latest hybrid creation turns the Volk into a close-range menace that could overthrow the popular MP-40.

This is the build JoeWo uses to turn the Volk into a deadly SMG.

As seen in the picture, JoeWo takes this assault rifle and uses attachments that make this gun extremely mobile like a submachine gun.


Here is every attachment he uses:

  • Muzzle: Recoil Boosted
  • Barrel: Krausnick 428MM 05V
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: SA Converted
  • Underbarrel: M3 Ready Grip
  • Magazine: 7.62 Russian Gorenko 40 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Incendiary
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Fleet
  • Kit: On-Hand

For those wondering how this is a SMG build, it’s due to the combination of SA Converted and the Fabric Grip. These two attachments give the Volk insane sprint to fire time, as well as hipfire accuracy.

In his gameplay, the movement king, JoeWo shows just how slippery you can be on the map with this loadout. The Volk, which is usually known for medium-range gunfights, is destroying enemies up close just like the MP-40.

According to WZRanked, the MP-40 currently ranks as the most picked weapon in all of Warzone but JoeWo sniffs a nerf coming in the future. He said, “This gun [Volk] felt insane as a sub… and when that [MP-40] gets nerfed, I really do think this Volk secondary will be meta.”


Warzone devs did announce that “many updates” are in the works and will be coming in the near future, so this could certainly shift the meta and see the likes of the Volk rise from 52nd most picked, to the top 10.
