The Armaguerra 43 is an extremely effective SMG, and with the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment you can make the best loadout for it in Warzone Pacific Season 5.
SMGs are ideal weapons for close-range combat in Warzone, and the Armaguerra 43 continues to be a great choice even after the small nerfs that it received in the Season 5 update.
Here’s the best Armaguerra 43 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 5.
Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 loadout attachments
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Botti 315mm CII
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: Imerito SA Folding
- Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
- Magazine: 9mm 60 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk 1: Vital
- Perk 2: Quick
We’ll start off this Warzone loadout by equipping the Recoil Booster muzzle and Botti 315mm CII barrel to boost the weapon’s bullet velocity and recoil control.
The Polymer Grip will further improve the SMG’s accuracy and you can use the Slate Reflector for its unobtrusive sight. The Imerito SA Folding stock and Mark VI Skeletal underbarrel will improve the weapon’s ADS movement speed.
We picked the 9mm 60 Round Mags along with the Lengenthed ammo to ensure you have plenty of rounds to eliminate multiple enemies. The Vital perk will increase the size of the critical-hit area on targets, and Quick will allow you to sprint faster.
Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 Perks & Equipment
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
- Tactical Equipment: Stim
Enemies will often toss grenades and thermite your way during close-quarters combat, so we recommend equipping the E.O.D Perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage.
You’ll want to pick Overkill so that you can pair this SMG with an option like the Cooper Carbine for long-range combat, and Amped to quickly switch between the two weapons.
This SMG forces you up close and personal with opponents, so a well-placed Throwing Knife is the perfect way to quickly remove an enemy from the equation, and a Stim will grant you a quick health boost.
How to unlock Armaguerra 43 in Warzone
While normally the Armaguerra is unlocked via an in-game challenge that requires you to score 10 hip-fire kills in 15 separate matches, the weapon is available completely free as of the Season 4 Reloaded update.
So you don’t have to worry about completing any challenge throughout the rest of the season, as the weapon will automatically be added to your inventory after logging into Warzone.
