Warzone Is Helping Players Operate Their Messy Meta Era With New Feature
It's not every day that Warzone helps a player, but a new secretly-added feature is actually helping players navigate the messiest meta in the battle royale's history.
Warzone's current gun meta has gone bonkers. The developers clearly feel very confused as to which guns to promote right now, given that Vanguard's life cycle is ending, but not yet dead, and Modern Warfare 2 being on the horizon means familiarity is required to generate hype.
For possibly the first time since the first week of Warzone and the week following the integration of both Black Ops and Vanguard, no gun has more than a 10% pick rate (according to WZRanked), and now Warzone itself has added a feature to help you navigate the messy meta.
Warzone Meta In Messiest State Ever
According to WZRanked, a platform that measures Warzone statistics including weapon pick rates and win rates, not a single gun in the game has over a 10% pick rate, meaning that there are currently more than ten guns that are all used as meta choices.
The NZ-41 and Marco 5 are two of the most popular guns, although their pick rate has plummeted from 18% and 12% respectively, earlier this week, to 9% and 8%. A wealth of other guns such as the H4 Blixen, KG M40m Cooper Carbine, MP-40, M13, STG44, and Armaguerra all come in as popular choices, although no set meta is dominating Warzone.
Even huge streamers such as Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff are getting confused at this meta, with the named Warzone mogul calling for Activision to ditch the "sh*t" Vanguard weapons for the old-school Modern Warfare ones.
Warzone Add Helpful New Feature For Choosing Meta Guns
Following the Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update, fans have now noticed a brand-new feature that has been silently added to help navigate your way through viable guns.
One Reddit user shared an image where Warzone added a "Recommended" tag to the Nikita AVT, as if the game was probing the player to pick the Assault Rifle that will suit their gameplay.
Unfortunately, no algorithm has been shared as to how the recommendations work, although some other users shared that the game was advising them to build a Marco 5 loadout, which is the second-most picked gun right now.
So, if you're stuck with which weapon to use in your next Warzone session, keep an eye out for any recommendations from the game, they might be on to something.
