If you want to create the strongest loadouts in Warzone 2, it's essential that all of your guns are up to max level, as that gives you access to every attachment in the game.

Unfortunately, racking up XP in standard battle royale matches can take a long time, which results in a lot of players finding the process boring and tedious.

Luckily, with Plunder arriving in WZ2, LA Guerrillas have revealed the number one strategy for levelling up guns in the game mode, and it's unbelievably fast.

The strategy for levelling up guns in Warzone 2's Plunder mode is 'super chill' as you have 'unlimited lives', so there's no need to worry about dying.

For starters, you'll want to start a Safecracker contract and open the first two safes. Following this, make sure you equip the gun you want to level up to claim the 3250XP. This will net you three levels on your chosen weapon.

When playing Solo, LA Guerrillas claim you can get four of these Safecracker contracts done in one match, resulting in 12 levels total. If you want to boost your level gains even more, simply equip an XP token, and it's possible to get 24 levels in a single match.

Finally, you'll be racking up a lot of cash for these contracts, so make sure to spend all the money on armour plates. $100,000 of armour plates is one extra level, so don't forget to spend your cash!

If you're unsure of what weapons to max out in the current meta, we'd recommend levelling up the ISO Hemlock AR and the Vaznev-9k SMG.

In terms of long-range laser beams, it's hard to beat the ISO Hemlock, as it'll make short work of any enemies shooting at you from afar. As for the Vaznev-9k, it's lethal at close-range thanks to its blisteringly fast TTK and manageable recoil pattern.

So, there you have it, that's how to level up guns fast in Warzone 2 and which guns you should max as soon as possible.
