In Warzone 2 Season 5 Reloaded, there are two assault rifles that stand out from the pack as the strongest options.

These are the M13B at 20.1% and the Kastov 762 at 16.4% pick rate, making them some of the most popular weapons in the game. While you could follow the crowd and use these weapons as your default, sometimes it's better to think outside the box.

Doing this can result in you finding a hidden gem, and luckily, Warzone 2 guru Whosimmortal has identified exactly that with "phenomenal" off-meta AR.

Slept-on Tempus Razorback is a "laser beam" in Warzone 2


  • Muzzle: Komodo Heavy
  • Underbarrel: DM PROTO Grip
  • Optic: AIM OP-V4
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity

In the eyes of WhosImmortal, the Tempus Razorback is a deadly sniper support AR that deserves more attention from the community.

With a "phenomenal" TTK and a huge amount of versatility at multiple ranges, the Razorback can perform in any situation.

Not only that, after testing from TrueGameData, it's been revealed the Razorback actually has the "most predictable and easy recoil pattern out of all the rifles in the game."

So, if you're in the market for a "laser beam" that locks onto foes with ease, it's hard to go wrong with this deadly AR.

According to WZRanked, the Tempus Razorback has an incredibly low 1.5% pick rate in Warzone 2, which is minuscule compared to the M13B and Kastov 762.

It'll be interesting to see if it manages to climb up the rankings as we head further in Season 5 Reloaded, as it's clearly being underrated. So, if you want to stay one step ahead of the competition, pick up the Razorback now before the rest of the community catches on.
