Understanding Meta Weapons in Warzone Season 5

Frequently Asked Questions for Warzone

Ever since Warzone Season 5 came a couple of weeks ago, there have been plenty of options for players to explore, from different weapon recommendations to finding the best attachments for primary weapons.

We’ll do our best to answer the most common questions.

What is the best weapon for an aggressive player?

If you’re the type of gamer who loves to be in the thick of the battle, then the practical choice is a short-range weapon paired with either sniper or marksman rifles.

But if you’re feeling more adventurous, a submachine gun and assault rifle combo should be a great alternative.

Why are most weapons focused on the medium range?

Because it’s an excellent choice from start to finish. Most of the encounters you will have in Warzone will happen between 50 and 300 meters.

If you’re equipped with the current meta assault rifle, your chances of survival grow exponentially. 

Does that mean short-range weapons are bad in Warzone?

It really depends on your accuracy and skills. One of the biggest drawbacks of short-range weapons is that they lack the necessary punch once your opponents go to medium-range territory. 

Pro-tip: Either choose one short-range and one medium-range weapon in your loadout if you’re not interested in sniping medium to long-range enemies.

What is the most versatile weapon in Warzone Season 5?

The Kastov 762 is an excellent choice for a versatile gun in Warzone because of its ease of use and accuracy.

If you’re looking for a gun that doesn’t have ridiculous recoil and has very quick TTK (time to kill), you can’t go wrong with this AK-47 clone.

What are the best sniper rifles in Warzone 2?

While there are plenty of options for players when it comes to sniper rifles, there are only 7 META weapons recommended by the community.

These popular weapons are as follows:

  • LA-B 330
  • Victus XMR
  • MCPR-300
  • Signal 50
  • Carrack .300
  • SP-X 80
  • FJX Imperium

Pro-Tip: Long-time fans of the franchise will find the FJX Imperium (formerly known as the Intervention) the arguably best rifle in the game.


Now that you have a general understanding of the best guns in Warzone right now, it’s now up to you to learn how to use these weapons in-game.

Training to use them in combat may sound tedious, but you’ll get motivated once you see the kills you make.
