Top 5 Best Meta SMG Loadouts in Warzone Pacific Season 3

Here are the 5 best SMG loadouts that you should be using in Warzone Pacific Season 3: Classified Arms.

When it comes to Rebirth Island, and close-quarter areas of Caldera, it helps to have a meta SMG loadout on your side in Warzone Pacific.

While they’re not quite as long-range as Warzone Season 3’s best Assault Rifles, these SMGs are every bit as reliable. And in many ways, they’re a much better option, particularly as they often offer a faster rate of fire and lower time to kill.

Partner one up with one of the few remaining good sniper loadouts in Warzone Season 3 as the perfect sniper support. Then, you’ll be dominating the battlefield, no matter what range you’re fighting on.

@Maxwell Jeffery, have you looked at the type 100? That gun dominates close to mid range and is fair at long range. It's gotta be leveled all the way up but it's worth the grind.

Apologies, looks like that was a typo, it's the 40 Round Mag, not 50! I've made the change now, thanks for pointing it out.
