Here's a guide breaking down the best close-range meta weapons after the Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update.
Best Close-Range Meta Weapons In Warzone Season 4 Reloaded
Raven Software, alongside Infinity Ward, launched the latest Warzone Season 4 Reloaded patch update on 27th July 2022. With the update came various changes, implementations, and of course, a rotation in the ever-shifting meta, particularly with the weapons.

The meta changes will see new inclusions and some weapons return to their former glory. This guide will cover all the best close-range meta weapons in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded for the perfect loadout below, from submachine guns (SMGs) to assault rifles.

Volk - Assault Rifle

Volk can be built differently. Whether you partake in rapid hipfire flurrying or sniper support takedowns, you can customize the Volk in a way suiting both.

The gun gives you outstanding range up to 29 meters up close, or double that by fitting the Volk with sniper augments. It's a pretty flexible gun, considering the alternate customizations you can put on the Volk.

Type 100 - Submachine Gun

There are various builds for the Type 100, but generally, you want to go with the fastest-drawing, rapid-firing customization kit possible. In any close-range fight, the Type 100 SMG wholly owns the crossfire and will always, if not most of the time, score you the kill.

The only real drawback of Type 100 is its damage-per-magazine; nevertheless, you'll need to worry about recoil, but if equipped with augments lessening it, there should be any issue. Overall, Type 100 is one of the best SMGs you can use as it allows you to easily win almost every fight against opponents.

Sten - Submachine Gun

The Sten is one of the best close-range guns across the board. It covers everything you'll ever need across the board, from fire rate, control, range, etc.

The only catch is that it takes up most of your screen when holding the gun. This makes it hard to see opponents in front of you or across your peripherals. 

Marco5 - Submachine Gun

If you're more interested in sustaining fire and higher damage-per-magazine, the Marco5 is the SMG for you. The gun excels at close range and has various magazine augments, including one with sixty-four bullets to keep you in action against squads without reloading.

H4 Blixen - Submachine Gun

As one of the more heavily-utilized SMGs in Warzone, the H4 Blixen remains a strong contender in close-range battles. The gun has everything you'll need to move quickly, spray down enemies, and continue plowing through the lobby without a sweat. 

Armaguerra - Submachine Gun

Probably the best weapon for close-range combat in the game is the Armaguerra, as it covers everything you'll need across the board. It's also exceptionally beginner-friendly because of its low recoil, but compared to every gun mentioned above, the Armaguerra is practically the best SMG for all it entails.

And that brings us to the end of the guide. As always, Warzone Season 4 Reloaded will continue to unfold with more updates, additions, and features coming to the battlefield in the future. Enjoy using these close-ranged weapons, and don't forget; to stay frosty.
