Warzone’s best gun, the Krig 6, has gotten a huge nerf in the Season 5 Reloaded update – here’s the weapon you’ll want to use instead.
Warzone players are always searching for new meta weapons with every update. However, in Season 5 Reloaded, there will be more players than ever scrambling to find the next best gun.
This is because the most popular weapon in Warzone Season 5, the Krig 6, has been nerfed into oblivion.
Luckily, we have the answer to which weapon you should use to replace the Krig 6 in your Warzone loadout.
But first, check out every weapon buff and nerf in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.
Huge Krig 6 Nerf in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded
The Warzone Season 5 Reloaded patch notes include a huge nerf to the Krig 6, but is it still usable?
While it’s certainly not the worst gun in the game, the Krig 6 is definitely not a meta gun anymore. Even if the visual recoil has become smoother, there has been a significant damage decrease for the weapon.
What’s more, the Krig 6 now has a third damage dropoff. This makes the weapon almost totally useless beyond 100m.
Luckily, JGOD has recommended 3 different guns that could replace the Krig 6 after its nerf in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.
JGOD’s New Meta Weapons in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded
In his new video, JGOD recommends 3 new weapons to replace the Krig 6 in your Warzone Season 5 Reloaded loadout:
Firstly, the Stoner 63 LMG might feel a bit slow, but it is an absolute powerhouse at long range. Also, despite a recoil nerf, it is still very controllable.
Here’s the best Stoner 63 Loadout in Warzone.
Alternatively, the QBZ-83 is the closest you can get to the Krig and is a great long-range option. Not only does it have slightly better damage than the pre-nerf Krig in Warzone, but it is also very easy to control.

Finally, the FARA 83 could finally be returning to the Warzone meta. It’s not as overpowered as it used to be, but it is still a very reliable gun for firefights at a distance.

And those are the top 3 weapons you should be using in your Warzone loadout after the Krig 6 nerf. Make sure to try out all of these and get ahead of the Season 5 Reloaded weapons meta.
Also, the Season 5 Reloaded update has finally introduced Dark Aether and Zombies camos to Warzone. What’s more, there’s a brand new game mode called Iron Trials ’84 that makes Battle Royale even tougher.
Additionally, in case you missed the big news, Raven Software has revealed the first details of the new Warzone Pacific map. This will be huge for Warzone and come with an improved anti-cheat system.
