Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific features almost 200 weapons, and the most popular have been revealed, so we’re counting down Season 4 Reloaded’s top ten guns as of August 3, 2022.
As is standard for Warzone, the meta is constantly changing. The Warzone Pacific update brought in over 40 new weapons from Call of Duty: Vanguard, and more keep coming. The Season 4 Reloaded update brought the new Vargo-S Assault Rifle and included a ton of weapon buffs and nerfs, and then the August 3 update changed the meta once again.
With this major meta change, thanks to WZRanked.com, we can see Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded’s most popular weapons. So, we’re counting down the top ten guns that players are using in Season 4 Reloaded.
Most popular guns in Warzone
10. STG44 – 2.9%
The STG44 was by far the most popular weapon before the NZ-41 received its major buffs. Another low recoil weapon, it’s still clinging on to the top 10 spot, but might fall further down the ranks as Season 5 comes along.
With a solid TTK, fast bullet velocity, and minimum recoil, it’s an effective choice for players of all skill levels. Even the smallest of buffs would catapult this classic WW2 rifle back to the meta.
9. M13 – 3.17%
The M13 is a fan-favorite Assault Rifle thanks to the early Verdansk nostalgia, modern aesthetics, and smooth animations.
While a popular choice already, this Modern Warfare weapon only got more powerful with the Season 4 Reloaded update. Now dealing more neck damage, you’ll find the M13 a powerful and reliable choice across Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep.
8. MP-40 – 3.58%
If you’re looking for a Vanguard SMG to use on Rebirth Island or Caldera, the MP40 has remained an excellent choice.
Although it might not be the best on paper, the MP40 has long been one of the most popular SMGs in the game. Its minimal recoil and solid damage make it a standout choice for close-range fights, so you won’t ever feel at a disadvantage while using it.
It’s no wonder that the MP40 has consistently remained in the top 10 most popular weapons in the game as it complements any possible loadout.
7. Armaguerra 43 – 4.38%
Even though Warzone’s Armaguerra 43 received a small nerf in the Season 4 Reloaded update, it’s still a solid choice.
While some of the other SMGs will beat the Armaguerra at close-range, you’ll find it’s slightly more effective at those longer ranges. If you plan on doing some aggressive sniping in Rebirth or Fortune’s Keep, then it’s worth giving the Armaguerra another shot.
6. Cooper Carbine – 4.61%
Plenty of low-recoil builds have made their way onto this list, and the Cooper Carbine’s fire rate and mobility have made it a popular choice for Fortune’s Keep.
Again, it’s not the most powerful weapon in the game but its almost non-existent recoil and decent damage have kept it in the top 10 most popular.
5. Kilo 141 – 6.15%
The Kilo 141 hasn’t been popular since Verdansk, but it’s made its way back into the top 10 most popular with the Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update.
Although extremely accurate, the Kilo 141 has always been let down by its significant damage drop-off. This drop-off was removed with Season 4 Reloaded, but then the devs nerfed its damage again with the August 3 update.
We’ll need to wait and see how much of an impact this has on the Kilo’s effectiveness and popularity.
4. Marco 5 – 7.09%
The Marco 5 is Season 4’s brand-new SMG, boasting a fast time to kill and the ability to be dual-wielded.
Although its Akimbo Perk gives it the fastest TTK in the game, players prefer to use it as a traditional SMG. With the classic build, it has great mobility and is the perfect SMG to use alongside your favorite Assault Rifle on either Caldera or Fortune’s Keep.
3. NZ-41 – 7.43%
The NZ-41 shot its way into Warzone’s meta with the Season 3 Reloaded update, firmly cementing itself as the most popular gun. It finally dropped from the top spot with both the Season 4 Reloaded and August 3 updates nerfing the weapon.
Low recoil weapons always make up the top ten most popular in Warzone, and the NZ-41 is one of the game’s easiest-to-control weapons. Even though it was hit with a few more nerfs, the NZ should remain a powerful and popular choice.
2. H4 Blixen – 7.57%
The H4 Blixen is one of the best SMGs in the game, and its popularity shot up after all the buffs and nerfs in Season 4 Reloaded.
Whether the Blixen will remain this popular remains to be seen, as the August 3 update has nerfed almost every aspect of the weapon.
1. KG M40 – 8.06% – Most popular weapon in Warzone
Warzone players always gravitate towards the low-recoil weapons, so the KG M40 took the NZ-41’s place after it was nerfed in Season 4 Reloaded.
With almost no recoil, it’s never been easier to beam enemies across the map than with the KG M40. But again, it saw damage nerfs in the August 3 update so it may not remain top of the pack for long, but it’ll still be incredibly easy to use.
If you’re yet to use any of these weapons in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded, they’re excellent choices no matter which map you prefer.
Although the Whitley doesn’t appear on this list, that could all change as it also received a buff on August 3.
