Top 5 meta Warzone 2 weapons & loadouts
5. ISO 45
Best ISO 45 loadout in Warzone 2
- Muzzle: Spiral V3.5 Flash Hider
- Stock: Demo Fade Tac
- Barrel: 7" EX Raptor-V2
- Magazine: 45-Round Drum
- Rear Grip: A30 Stout
The ISO 45 remained untouched in the Season 6 patch so it's still a powerhouse pick in the current meta, sitting at an impressive 4.6% pick rate.
Like all SMGs, it boasts a quick fire rate, whilst remaining nice and light so you can manoeuvre around the map quickly.
This makes it the perfect aggressive SMG for racking up kills and pulling off outplays, so if it's not part of your loadout list, you're missing out.
4. Signal 50
Best Signal 50 loadout in Warzone 2
- Muzzle: Nilsound 90
- Barrel: 29" TV KILO-50
- Optic: Forge Tac Delta 4
- Ammunition: .50 Cal High Velocity
- Rear Grip: SA Finesse Grip
Eclipsing the FJX Imperium and MCPR-300 in terms of popularity, the Signal 50 is the number-one sniper in Warzone 2 currently.
Sitting at a 6.6% pick rate, it excels at effectively taking out foes from afar, especially in the hands of a talented sharpshooter.
It's worth noting that the Signal 50 was hit with a set of nerfs in the Season 6 patch, reducing its neck and upper torso damage multiplier. Despite this, it remains a powerful pick, so if raw firepower in a bolt-action sniper is what you're looking for, the Signal 50 is your answer.
Best M13B loadout in Warzone 2
- Muzzle: Harbinger D20
- Barrel: 14" Bruen Echelon
- Optic: AIM-OP V4
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Magazine: 60 Round Mag
The M13B is the ultimate laser beam for long-range gunfights in Warzone 2, locking onto targets with ease, especially in the hands of a sharpshooter.
Its stock may have decreased slightly after nerfs to its damage range in Season 6, but it's still a perfect option for those who struggle to control kickback.
If you want top-tier AR in the current meta, then the M13B is your answer and with a 7.7% pick rate, it's obvious the community has caught wind of its power.
2. Lachmann Sub

- Barrel: L38 Falcon 226MM
- Stock: FT Mobile Stock
- Laser: VLK LZR 7MW

- Ammunition: 9MM Overpressured +P
Escaping any nerfs in the Season 6 patch, the Lachmann Sub has managed to launch its way back into the close-range meta with a 14.8% pick rate.
The classic SMG has everything you need to dominate foes at close quarters and has always been a fan favourite weapon.
Equipped with strong mobility, damage, and stability, the Lachmann is a brilliant gun which is perfect for players who love to take aggressive skirmishes.

The arrival of the TR-76 Geist could be a potential contender for the Kastov 762, but for now, it stands above every other option in the eyes of the community.
So, if you want an AR that can truly decimate foes and you're willing to master the weapon, there's no better choice.
