Best Weapons and Guns in Warzone 2 You Might Want to Start With

Looking for best assault rifle or best sniper rifle in Warzone 2? In this guide, we describe the best weapons in Warzone 2, including attachments and how to unlock them.

Warzone 2 with Season 01 for COD MW2 are here, and you can paratroop onto the huge Al Mazrah map, fight for loadouts and survive the gulag. Warzone 2 update resets all your progress, too, so you will not be able to take your Warzone 1 weapons to the new game. That's why, in this quick loadout guide to Warzone 2, we will recommend weapons that will be suitable for each situation in Warzone 2 – we explain how to unlock them and which accessories are the best before Warzone 2 launches – and after! Remember that to play your favorite weapon, you need to get a loadout, and the rules for earning loadouts in Warzone 2 have changed – you can find out how to get them exactly in our guide: How to Get Loadout in Warzone 2? Everything explained.

COD MW2 brings back a lot of weapons known from older games in the series (although with changed names), and if you own this game, you could level them up and prepare for the launch of Warzone 2. While Warzone 2's meta is still difficult to discuss (it will crystallize about 3-4 days after the game launches), there are some weapons that just always work well.

What are the best weapons in Warzone 2?

Warzone 2 is a battle royale that takes place on a huge map. You will be fighting over both long and short distances, so it's worth preparing for any possibility. At the beginning, we recommend carrying a mid-range + long-range weapon, or an SMG + a long-range weapon. For example, you can carry a sniper rifle and an SMG, or a sniper rifle and an assault rifle.

But remember that while the meta for Warzone 2 doesn't exist yet, it all depends on what you like to play – if any of the above weapons do not suit you for some reason, don't bother and change to something that feels right.

Of course, remember that your ultimate best Warzone loadout includes both good lethal equipment (such as semtex or drill) and some tactical equipment (eg. stun grenades or drill charges, which will be useful for storming houses with campers).
