Best QBZ-83 loadout for Warzone Season 5 Reloaded

The QBZ-83 assault rifle is expected to be the new "meta weapon" to dominate opponents in Verdansk, so here is the best loadout for the QBZ-83 at the start of Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.
The Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update is finally here! Raven Software has released its content roadmap, which includes the start of the enigmatic limited-time event called "The Numbers", later this month. There is also a plethora of new additions, including new Warzone game modes: Iron Trials '84 and Clash, a new Operator, new melee weapon, Judge Dredd skin, bug fixes, and of course, weapon balance changes.

Of course, Warzone players will be looking for the best class setups to dominate opponents in Verdansk and we've got the perfect weapon to boot: the QBZ-83! This assault rifle is an absolute beast especially after the Krig 6 got nerfed making it arguably the new meta weapon to use this season. With that in mind, here is the best loadout for the QBZ-83 at the start of Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.

In the previous season, the QBZ-83 was a notable contender to the Krig 6. After the latest weapon balance changes, however, the Krig 6 fell off as a result of several nerfs. In particular, the Krig 6's Maximum and Minimum Damage were significantly reduced, resulting in a remarkably higher 2-headshot TTK than the QBZ-83.

The following loadout is derived from the iconic Warzone YouTuber "JGOD's" latest video.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 16.5" Ranger
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 60 Rnd Drum

The Agency Suppressor is an integral attachment for all assault rifles, conferring sound and flash suppression. This attachment will also reduce vertical recoil control, increase bullet velocity and increase effective damage range at the minor expense of ADS speed and aim walking steadiness.

The 16.5" Ranger Barrel will further improve bullet velocity and vertical recoil control. An alternative would be to use the 15.5” Task Force Barrel for additional recoil control and effective damage range.

Some players may feel as though the Field Agent GripUnderbarrel provides negligible improvements to recoil control, in which case the Serpent Grip Rear Grip is a notable alternative to boost ADS time. Otherwise, the Raider Stock can be equipped for additional strafe speed, ADS firing move speed and aim walking movement speed.

Lastly, we've gone with the STANAG 60 Rnd Drum for additional ammunition capacity and the Axial Arms 3x Optic for magnification. Feel free to change the Optic to whichever is most preferential to you.

You can watch JGOD's video for a more in-depth analysis of the latest weapon balance changes. We've embedded the video below for your consideration.
