It’s a bit early to call which weapon will be the best at the end of the season, but this pro player already has his eye on Warzone’s best Season 3 gun at launch.

Warzone’s overpowered Sykov pistols were recently shredding the competition with ease. But after the recent nerf, is the Sykov still overpowered?

And with more big nerfs coming to the Warzone FFAR, M16, AUG, and more, the meta is about to get a major shake-up!

Warzone’s Best Weapon in Season 3?

If you’re looking to find out what Warzone’s best weapon in Season 3 is, you’re not the only one. But this Warzone professional thinks he’s found the answer.

Recently, Warzone analyst JGOD made predictions about the best Season 3 weapon. And now, to back up his findings, NICKMERCS is trying his hand at a new loadout.

Sporting a newly shaven head, NICKMERCS assures fans of the power of the AS VAL in Season 3. According to the YouTube and Twitch star, the AS VAL has the fastest TTK of any Assault Rifle in Warzone.

And with the upcoming nerfs to the burst meta, this could be taking the top spot very soon.

“I love this gun,” NICKMERCS reveals. “It’s phenominal in Solos. It’s phenominal in Duos.”


However, there is one thing holding Warzone’s best weapon in Season 3 back. And that’s the AS VAL’s magazine size.

“The only issue with this weapon is that it just doesn’t have a big enough magazine. If it did, this would be the best close-range gun in the game.”

But despite the AS VAL not having the bullets to put down a whole squad, it’s still a powerful weapon to run. Especially when taking it into battle alongside one of these powerful Warzone weapon loadouts.
