Warzone star Zack ‘ZLaner’ Lane has got a new AK47 loadout that sparks memories of the AMAX when that was completely broken, but the secondary weapon isn’t to be scoffed at either. 

With Warzone constantly going through balancing changes and other tweaks, players are open to trying different weapons in the hopes of cracking a new meta.

For the longest time, the meta has revolved around the Krig, Kar98, and MAC-10, with weapons like the Swiss, Grau, Bullfrog, and FARA getting some love too.

The Black Ops Cold War AK-47 has quietly cracked the WZRanked top 10 usage chart in recent weeks, shooting up in pick rate and K/D ratio. Its climb might not be over yet either, as ZLaner has a pretty nifty loadout for it.

He is rocking a pretty standard set-up – using the Axial Arms 3x scope, GRU Suppressor, and 20″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel – as well as that 45-round magazine to really complete the AMAX comparison.

On top of that, when the AK isn’t enough, ZLaner is able to switch to the Bullfrog – which is one of Warzone’s best weapons in its own right. The two primary weapon loadout mean you’re covered at pretty much every range and your TTK is through the roof.
