Previous Warzone Meta

Before one of the most recent updates to Warzone, the weapon meta was the AUG Tactical Rifle from Cold War, the MAC-10 submachine gun from Cold War, the FFAR Assault Rifle from Cold War, and the Kar98k from Modern Warfare.

These are still perfectly acceptable guns to use in both Warzone and Cold War, but the AUG and FFAR did receive rather substantially nerfs before Season 3 kicked off.

The recently added Sykov pistol also became a brief meta, but Raven Software were quick to nerf the newly added weapon from Modern Warfare.

Warzone Season 3 Meta Weapon

Below you will find my personal choice of weapons for the new season of Warzone. The PPSH is a solid new SMG to use in Warzone, while the Swiss K31 is reminiscent of the Kar 98k.

It’s also worth noting that the AK-47 did in fact receive a buff for Season 3, and is now a great gun to use in Warzone. Check out the full attachment list below.
