Storied Call of Duty of players will remember the Razorback from Black Ops III, which was one of the more brutal submachine guns in the game. It was notorious for fire-rate and precision, but not blessed with much range. Well, its daddy is here.

Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone Season 4 are introducing the Tempus Razorback as an assault rifle, keeping everything that was great with the SMG but building on top of it with low-recoil accuracy and a typically brutal range.

Shooting might become quite hard for Warzone players in Season 4, amid an increase to the health and a possible silent nerf to aim assist coming into play. 

So you'll have quite the task on your hands, making sure you have the perfect gun to help you control your shots for longer. That's where the Tempus Razorback comes in.

Early clips of the Assault Rifle have been showcased by content creators who gathered to playtest Vondel, and it seems the Assault Rifle is a laser beam, blessed with a high fire rate and precision accuracy, much akin to the M13 from Verdansk that dominated for some time.

Warzone's new Tempus Razorback is already 'meta'


The current meta in Warzone is heavily weighted towards the Cronen Squall, but as the Season 4 patch notes have announced, the deadly battle rifle has been nerfed, opening the doors to the Tempus Razorback.

Now, fans are already eyeing the Razorback, with many on social media singing its praises. "S**t, the gun looks pretty solid, looks like way less recoil than the Squall," one fan said on Twitter.

The Razorback will undoubtedly receive that new gun buff which sells bundles and battle passes, but if you're hoping to succeed in Vondel, the Razorback appears to be a must-have gun.
