Submachine Guns are powerful tools in any Call of Duty: Warzone player’s arsenal. With that being said, we’ve ranked every SMG and put together the top five for Warzone Pacific Season 4’s best close-range guns.
Following the Warzone Pacific Season 4 update, Warzone’s long-range meta changed dramatically. While the NZ-41 surpassed the STG44 following the update, the game’s close-range meta hasn’t changed too drastically, with Vanguard weapons continuing to dominate.
Having said that, there are some very strong and underrated SMGs that have climbed the ranks since the Season 4 update, boasting incredible TTKs and versatility.
Best Warzone SMGs ranked list
SMGs have always played an important role in Warzone’s meta. Alongside long-range options like Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles, players need something for fighting up close, and that’s where SMGs come in.
Before we take a detailed look at the game’s top five SMGs, we’re first going to rank every SMG in Warzone Pacific Season 4 so you can see how each weapon compares to the rest.
Here’s our official ranked list for the SMGs in Warzone Pacific Season 4:
- H4 Blixen
- Armaguerra 43
- Type 100
- Marco 5
- Owen Gun
- PPSH-41 (Vanguard)
- MP5 (CW)
- OTs 9
- PPSH-41 (Cold War)
- MP5 (MW)
- PP19 Bizon
- AUG (MW)
- Nail Gun
- KSP 45
Top 5 SMGs in Warzone Pacific Season 4
The Welgun is the king of low recoil SMG loadouts and it is one of the easiest weapons to use. Although it doesn’t have the same incredible damage-per-mag as the Amraguerra, it has everything you’d want from an SMG — solid time to kill, low recoil, and high mobility.
Truthfully, there is very little to separate the top Vanguard SMGs in Warzone and if any of the weapons below receive nerfs, then the Welgun will surely rise up this list throughout Season 4.
4. Marco 5
The newly released Marco 5 that is available via the Season 4 Battle Pass has managed to make its way onto this list. It’s no surprise that the new weapon is the most popular SMG in Warzone at the moment, with players eager to see what it’s capable of.
Although the Marco 5 boasts a unique Akimbo proficiency that allows players to dual wield the weapon, it is much more devastating with the ability to ADS.
3. Type 100
The Type 100 is a Vanguard SMG that players are beginning to take notice of. During Warzone Pacific Season 3 it became the fastest-killing SMG in the game, and its dominance has continued in Season 4.
Although the Type 100 is a tad unwieldy, you’ll find that you’ll win almost every close-range gunfight when it’s in your hands. Its main issues are that it has a relatively small magazine size and struggles at range, but it deserves its top five spot because of its incredible damage output.
2. Armaguerra 43
Although Warzone’s Armaguerra 43 doesn’t get as much love as some of the other SMGs on this list, it’s well-deserving of a top-five spot.
The Armaguerra was quickly nerfed after its arrival in Season 2 Reloaded, but it can still hang with the best SMGs in the game. Boasting an incredibly fast fire rate and low recoil, it’s an excellent, yet underrated, choice in Season 4.
1. H4 Blixen – Best SMG in Warzone
For the first time since the launch of Warzone Pacific, Vanguard’s MP40 and Owen Gun are not on this list. Due to the powerful SMGs that have been released as seasonal content like the Welgun, Armaguerra 43, Marco 5, and H4 Blixen, the competition is fierce.
Nonetheless, the H4 Blixen has managed to claim the top spot on this list in Season 4. As of July 4, the H4 Blixen has the best K/D ratio in Warzone at 1.79 and it’s blowing the competition out of the water.
Although these SMGs are the top five you should run in Warzone, the meta is constantly evolving and who knows what will happen when the Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update shakes up the hierarchy.
