When it comes to creating a top-tier loadout in Warzone, a lot of focus is placed on raw damage that can compete in the current meta. While damage output is important, many players place too much emphasis on firepower and forget about stability.

Landing every shot on target is the only way to consistently rack up kills and secure victories, so minimising recoil is essential. Luckily, CoD guru IceManIsaac has found an OG MW2 LMG that is packed with bullet velocity and is a long-range laser beam, making it simple to track foes from afar.

RAPP-H is the ultimate long-range laser in Warzone


  • Muzzle: ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Pivot Vertical Grip
  • Ammunition: 7.62X51MM High Velocity
  • Optic: JAK Glassless Optic
  • Barrel: Romeo FT 16" Barrel

Identifying an MW2 gun that can compete in Warzone is like finding a diamond in the rough, as the majority of old-school weapons simply fall short when compared to their MW3 counterparts.

One that can put up a fight, though, is the hefty RAPP-H LMG. With its unbelievably stable recoil pattern, it specialises in laser-beaming foes. With the JAK Glassless Optic equipped, the gun effectively locks onto opponents, sending them to the Gulag in an instant.

In IceManIsaac's opinion, once the DG-58 LSW or the SVA 545 are nerfed, the RAPP-H could snatch the crown. With the setup above, you'll achieve 1000m/s of bullet velocity, which is perfect for holding down those power positions in preparation for the endgame.

Popularity is a good indicator of how strong a weapon is in the current meta, but it should never be the only factor taken into consideration.

The arsenal of MW3 and Warzone is so big that the community often forgets hidden gems, and that's certainly the case for the RAPP-H.

This LMG has a criminally low pick rate of just 0.2%, despite being a solid long-range option in Season 3 Reloaded. If you're looking for a blast from the past and want a top-tier laser beam that's slightly off-meta, the RAPP-H has to be on your radar.
