Sallyisadog TikTok Goes Viral With “Odd” Warzone Meta

When you think of the meta in Warzone Pacific Season 1, your mind is likely to go to the MP40 SMG or Overkill Perk.

But one player, who goes by the name Kira, throw the meta book out the window and got creative. Subsequently putting on a master class for sallyisadog, a Warzone content creator with a huge following on TikTok.

After sallyisadog was killed by this meta maverick, he spectated him throughout the rest of the game. Sallyisadog soon learned that Kira had three killer twists that put him streets ahead of the lobby.

XM4 is Meta

At one time, the Black Ops Cold War-era XM4 assault rifle was one of the most popular in the game. But that has been a long time now, a fact acknowledged by sallyisadog.

But Kira had no issues with it. In fact, he had it kitted out in such a way as to make it a verifiable laser beam. Sallyisadog even dusted off his own and gave it a run-out.

And, yes, as it turns out the XM4 is back on the menu. However, getting the best loadout for it is still key – so why not check out one specially designed for the Caldera map.

Launchers Are Meta

You may be asking yourself, “when is firing rockets at someone, not meta?”

But in the weird and wonderful world of Warzone, it usually makes much more sense to run with two primary weapons. Few can argue with having a Kar98k in hand and an MP40 on your back, especially when you have the best loadout available.

The MP40 and Kar98k are, after all, two of the best guns in the game.

But not Kira, armed with the Strela-P, we can see him blast trucks into small parts and even ‘snipe’ an opponent with surgical precision through an open window. It’s a tactic that quickly had our content creator “sipping the Kool-Aid”
