Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 1 has arrived with a brand-new sunny, tropical map called Caldera. In addition, there are also loads of other changes offering up a new experience for players, ranging from new POIs, gameplay features and vehicles to the integration of over forty COD Vanguard guns to the game.

Naturally, these changes are expected to drastically shake up the meta as players rally to find out which guns are the strongest and most broken weapons to use in the game.

The NZ-41 is one of several underrated assault rifles in Warzone Pacific and is currently listed as a C-tier gun to use in the first season. However, in reality, the NZ-41 boasts insane stopping power, capable of blasting enemies into smithereens in Caldera.

So, with that said, here is the best NZ-41 gunsmith class setup at the start of Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Indeed, the NZ-41 doesn't quite match the STG-44 or Automaton and yet boasts firepower superior to these S-tier weapons. However, a major setback is a high recoil, resulting in a dramatic shooting accuracy loss, but this is nothing the perfect loadout can't fix.

The following loadout aims to reduce the NZ-41's high recoil and thus improve its accuracy. Also, this loadout was inspired by YouTube icon JGOD.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Orbweaver 360mm BC
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Ravenwood Padded
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: .5mm Sakura 45 Rnd Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Frenzy
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The first attachment is the MX Silencer improves accuracy and confers sound suppression and concealment from enemies on the radar. You can pair this attachment with the Orbweaver 360mm BC for significant improvements to recoil control.

While this barrel attachment does kill mobility to some extent, it's undoubtedly worth sacrificing.

The Ravenwood Padded, Carver Foregrip, and Polymer Grip attachments will improve stability, accuracy and control.

At the same time, the Sakura 45 Round Mags will also provide an additional +9 recoil control and accuracy, albeit at the expense of bullet velocity. However, you can ease this by equipping the Lengthened ammo type.

Finally, we round off with the Frenzy and Full Loaded perks for lifesteal after kills and full starting ammo, respectively. 

And that's it! Do you disagree with this NZ-41 gunsmith loadout? Great, we don't care. But, if you want something else to be disappointed about, then be sure to check out our Sniper Rifle tier list.
