Prefer a different submachine gun? Check out the guides below for our other SMG loadout guides:

The Owen Gun is an Australian SMG from the World War II era. While a large majority of the guns in Vanguard have appeared in prior Call of Duty titles, the Owen Gun is a brand-new addition to the franchise. The Owen Gun is described in-game as a “high-calibre full-auto SMG with accuracy for medium ranges".

Vanguard’s Gunsmith system builds on the “Pick Ten” system originally featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Each weapon can be customised with up to ten attachments derived from a diverse set of categories. The extensive amount of player choice allowed with Vanguard’s Gunsmith means that each Vanguard weapon can be altered to excel in different situations and engagement scenarios. This stretches to Warzone too, where the gun is immensely useful in a number of scenarios. 

With 70 weapon levels of attachments to choose from, it can be hard to select the best options. Save yourself the stress and use this best Warzone Owen Gun loadouts guide to build the optimal Owen Gun class setups.

The Owen Gun is one of the more well-rounded weapons in its class, so the Call of Duty Vanguard perks and equipment you pair it with should reflect that. While aggressive players may desire a loadout with Ninja, Lightweight, and Dead Silence for fast-paced flanking and silent movement, there are better options out there for Warzone players fond of a slower, more methodical pace of play. Perks like Ghost, Radar, and Demolition, and the Armour Field Upgrade will benefit you regardless of playstyle.

  • Perk 1 - Ghost
  • Perk 2 - Radar
  • Perk 3 - Demolition
  • Secondary - Machine Pistol
  • Lethal - MK2 Frag Grenade
  • Tactical - No. 69 Stun Grenade
  • Field Upgrade - Armour

You now have everything you need to create the best Warzone Owen Gun loadout. With the right attachments and perks, the Owen Gun may be considered by some to be one of the best Call of Duty Vanguard weapons.
