When it comes to weapons, Warzone has a delicate meta but one that’s beginning to exclude Modern Warfare guns.
Right now, the Warzone meta is in a pretty good place. We’ve definitely had periods where we experienced incredibly overpowered weapons in Warzone, and right now things are in a good state.
However, as we near the end of the Black Ops Cold War lifespan, it seems that Modern Warfare is almost entirely out of the meta. And many players believe this is a conscious choice by Raven Software.
For every powerful Modern Warfare weapon, there’s a Cold War alternative that does it better. And according to JGOD, only one Modern Warfare weapon is even worth using in Warzone.
The popular Warzone analyst also confirms that Call of Duty Vanguard’s blindfire mechanic will be a huge problem in Warzone…
Best Modern Warfare Weapon in Warzone Season 5
The best Modern Warfare weapon in Warzone Season 5 is also the only one worth using. According to JGOD, that weapon is none other than the Kar98k.
We’ve always had a reliable Kar98k loadout in Warzone for maximum accuracy while sniping. However, these days the Kar98k is no longer the best sniper in Warzone Season 5.
But after yet another gun loses its place in the meta to a Black Ops Cold War weapon, we have to wonder why this is the case. Obviously, at this point it’s clear that Cold War weapons have better mobility in Warzone, but is that enough?
It seems that Raven Software may be slowly trying to phase the Modern Warfare weapons out of the meta early. And in doing so, we’re sure we’ll see some pretty powerful Vanguard weapons appear in Warzone very soon.
Right now, weapons such as the MP5, MP7, Fennec and more are still powerful in Warzone. But you will always find better alternatives in Cold War’s roster – and soon Vanguard’s too, most likely.
When asked about viable weapons in Warzone, YouTuber and analyst JGOD confirms:
“Short answer is that nobody should be using any of the MW guns expect the Kar98k”
It’s going to be a strange game where WW2 guns are outperforming modern weapons, but that’s probably what awaits us on Vanguard’s release day!
At least Vanguard is bringing a new anti-cheat to Warzone at last. And on top of that, it looks as though the new Warzone map is massive, with planes, tanks, and more!
In case you missed it, we just saw debut footage of the Vanguard Campaign and it looks stunning!
