Best Meta Weapons In Warzone Season 4 Reloaded - Strongest And Most Broken Guns

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded brings some new weapon changes and a new set of the best meta weapons within the game. Best meta guns in Warzone and more.
Best Meta Weapons In Warzone Season 4 Reloaded - Strongest And Most Broken Guns
For the mid-season update in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, a lot of the focus was shifted towards assault rifles, and those have historically been the most broken guns in the game. Nearly every other weapon class received some form of tuning as well and Caldera could look a bit different for the rest of the season.

There are a ton of weapons in Warzone at this point, and Raven Software can't get to every single one. So some of the typical meta weapons will still remain in Season 4 Reloaded. Our guide will outline five of the most broken guns in the current meta for Caldera or Fortune's Keep.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded - Best Meta Weapons

The best meta weapons in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded may sound redundant, but there are almost 200 weapons, and a ton of them are considered viable at the very least. About five or six in each individual class can usually be placed in the top tier as well.

This mid-season patch even buffed up some previously broken guns like the CR-56 AMAX and the Kilo 141. Potential is all over the place for new competitive loadouts across the board, but there can only be a handful of the most broken meta weapons in Warzone.

MP 40 - Submachine Gun

One of the most reliable weapons in Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone is the MP 40. Versatility is the main boon for this Vanguard SMG and it has the potential to destroy enemies at almost any range if you try hard enough.

At mid-range and short-range, you can easily cut through a squad. Recoil is low, the velocity with damage is a real factor, and there is a ton of mobility. For sniper support or SMG class, you can't go wrong here.

STG44 - Assault Rifle

Another reliable weapon from Call of Duty: Vanguard, you can't go wrong with the STG44. It's been one of the most dominant assault rifles and weapons in general since the launch of Vanguard and it has remained at the top tier since.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded brought some minor nerfs to the weapon, but the overall effectiveness didn't go down nearly enough to knock it off the list. That can't be said about every other AR though.

Vargo 52 - Assault Rifle

By far the best non-Vanguard assault rifle, the Vargo 52 has been incredible since it was released in post-launch for Black Ops Cold War. The Vargo-S was just released in the mid-season update, but it doesn't come close to the power of the Cold War version.

Fire rate, damage, and recoil control are all perfect on the Vargo 52 and it wasn't touched at all in the new patch. Expect to see this all over the place in nearly every Warzone game mode.

Armaguerra 43 - Submachine Gun

The Submachine Gun category is full of great choices, but the S-Tier position has continued to shrink. Some of the largest competition for the Armaguerra 43 was the H4 Blixen, the Welgun, and the Marco 5.

All of those options have been tuned down, and though they are still good options, they won't be as effective as they once were. The Armaguerra 43 wasn't touched at all in the mid-season.

ZRG 20mm - Sniper Rifle

Our last meta weapon on the broken guns for Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, the ZRG 20mm is the best sniper. Some rifles come very close, such as the 3-Line and the HDR, but the ZRG has massive damage output, and more importantly, it can one-shot kill to the head.

You'll find a ton of players using this sniper, and with the nerf to Serpentine on the way, expect it to be even more deadly. Pairing a ZRG with something like an MP40 is a recipe for multi-kills in the Warzone.
