The Cooper Carbine received a buff from the Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded update which increased the bullet velocity by 4.5%. This weapon remains one of the best Assault Rifle selections in the battle royale thanks to impressive damage and handling at close and mid-ranges.

The MP40 went untouched by the Season 3 Reloaded update and thus it remains amongst the top choices for Submachine guns in the title. This SMG boasts one of the best Time-To-Kill stats of any weapon in Warzone as well as supreme handling to have you wiping out the competition in close quarters.

Kar98k - Sniper rifle

It seems as though the game developers are looking to bring the Kar98k back into the fold in a major way as this Sniper rifle received multiple buffs from the Season 3 Reloaded update. Not only did the Kar98k get the added Frenzy Weapon Perk as well as the Max Damage range being increased to 48.9 meters, up from 47 meters, but there were also attachment buffs as well. ADS speed and Damage range were increased for the K98 Scout 10.0x Telescopic and VDD RE02K, so give this weapon a whirl in Season 3 Reloaded.

Bren - Light machine gun

The Season 3 Reloaded update didn't touch the Light machine guns and because of that, the Bren remains the top choice in the class. This LMG can be built out to deal solid damage at long ranges and take advantage of serious headshot capability. Many players also look to add in the 100-round magazine with their Bren loadouts, so play around with that if you're trying out this gun in Season 3 Reloaded.

STG44 - Assault rifle

Still considered one of the best ARs in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded, the STG44 wasn't affected by the recent weapon balance changes. The STG44 is an ultra-powerful weapon that excels in close and mid-ranges thanks to its impressive damage capability.
