What are the best Warzone loadouts and guns in Season 5? It's a question that every Call of Duty Warzone player is wondering, after more new guns have been added to the game to shake up the meta. Staying on top of the best loadouts in Warzone and understanding which weapons are the most overpowered right now is crucial to securing wins, especially when everyone else in the match is likely to be using similar Warzone loadouts. Here's everything you need to know about the best Warzone loadouts for a number of different playstyles, taking into account the latest Warzone patch notes.

Of course, these best Warzone loadouts can't be used from the get-go, unless you're playing Plunder. To acquire one of your custom loadouts in Warzone, you need to spend $10,000 on one at a Buy Station, then throw down the marker to drop the care package from the sky. Alternatively, keep your eyes peeled for a few Warzone loadout drops that land periodically throughout the match. The problem with these are that anyone nearby knows exactly where it is on the map, so could be lying in wait for someone to get lured out by the promise of the best Warzone loadouts.

It's also recommended having two Warzone loadouts ready to choose from at any one time. You'll want Overkill on one, so you can grab two primary weapons, but if you find another loadout drop later on in the game, switch to the one with another second perk then swap your sidearm for the second primary from the first loadout. This allows you to have two primary weapons without Overkill for the endgame.

Without further ado and in no particular order, here are our picks for the best Warzone loadouts:

Best Warzone Loadouts: EM2 & TEC-9

Best Warzone loadouts: EM2 & TEC-9

Kicking things off are two guns added in season five, both of which are incredibly strong right now. They will inevitably face a nerf at some point, but for the time being, this AR/SMG combo is the way forward.

EM2:                                                                                                                     

Muzzle: Agency Suppressor                                                                          
Barrel: 25.8" Task Force                                                                                      
Optic: Axial Arms 3x                                                                                                
Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip                                                                      
Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd                                                                  

TEC-9:

Muzzle: Full Auto Repeater
Barrel: 4.9" Task Force
Stock: Raider Stock
Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
Ammunition: STANAG 48 Rnd

Perks:

  • E.O.D
  • Overkill (Ghost if you get a second loadout drop)
  • Combat Scout

Equipment:

  • Throwing Knife
  • Heartbeat Sensor

This loadout is the perfect blend of ranged combat and close-quarters fury. The EM2 is an absolute monster at long range, assisted by the Agency Suppressor and long barrel, while the underbarrel grip helps deal with the recoil. With the TEC-9, stick the fully automatic attachment on it, and it starts melting enemies up close, but with the amount of bullets you churn through, the extended magazine is a necessity. Include a Throwing Knife to quickly finish any enemies you knock down without wasting bullets, and you've got one of the best Warzone loadouts right now.

Best Warzone Loadouts: FFAR 1 & Kar98k

Best Warzone loadouts: FFAR 1 & Kar98k

Another Overkill-focused loadout, this utilises the FFAR assault rifle which is better up close, along with the Kar98k marksman rifle if you fancy some sniping action.

FFAR 1:

Barrel: 20.3" Takedown
Optic: Hawksmoor
Stock: Raider Stock
Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
Ammunition: 38 Rnd

Kar98k:

Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6"
Laser: Tac Laser
Optic: Sniper Scope
Stock: STVOL Precision Comb

Perks:

  • E.O.D
  • Overkill (High Alert if you get a second loadout drop)
  • Amped

Equipment:

  • Semtex
  • Stun Grenade

This FFAR 1 build is best suited to short-mid range combat, clearing buildings and securing a rendezvous for your squad. Both the Bruiser Grip and Raider Stock boost movement speed, so you're not too slow on foot, while the barrel is useful for damage and recoil control. Then you can whip out the Kar98k when you've got a hideout secured, which is all about picking enemies off without them even knowing where you are. Just make sure you can hit those headshots.

Best Warzone Loadouts: CR-56 AMAX & Sykov

Best Warzone loadouts: CR-56 AMAX & Sykov

If you don't want to run Overkill and just have one loadout option, consider the CR-56 AMAX. Realistically, this gun can be replaced with a few of the different assault rifles, but the CR-56 is still one of the best in the game and has been since it was introduced, especially on PC.

CR-56 AMAX:

Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
Rear Grip: XRK CR-56 Stippled Wrap

Sykov:

Barrel: Sorokin 140mm Auto
Stock: PP-Skelet
Trigger Action: Heavyweight Double-Action
Ammunition: 80 Round Drums
Rear Grip: VLK Prizrak

Perks:

  • E.O.D
  • Ghost
  • Amped

Equipment:

  • Semtex
  • Flash Grenade

Just because you don't have Overkill doesn't mean you need to sacrifice firepower in the secondary slot. With the barrel attachment, you can turn the Sykov into a fully automatic beast, with 80 bullets available before you have to reload. To counteract how slow the 80 Round Drums make you however, the trigger action and rear grip attachments boost the ADS and sprint to fire speeds. The CR-56 AMAX loadout is fairly standard, with mediocre recoil and a long-range optic to pick off enemies at further distances. Amped is a requirement with this class though, so you can swap to the Sykov rapidly when in close quarters fights.

Best Warzone Loadouts: EM2 & AMP63

Best Warzone loadouts: EM2 & AMP63

The second appearance for the EM2 in this list, but this time it's an alternative loadout if you don't want to run Overkill. You sacrifice the raw firepower from the TEC-9 in the first loadout, but the AMP63 akimbo packs a serious punch, albeit while sacrificing accuracy.

EM2:

Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
Barrel: 25.8" Task Force
Stock: Raider Stock
Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap

AMP63:

Muzzle: Sound Suppressor
Barrel: 6.4" Task Force
Laser: SOF Target Designator
Stock: Dual Wield
Ammunition: Salvo 30 Rnd Fast Mag

Perks:

  • E.O.D
  • Ghost
  • Amped

Equipment:

  • Semtex
  • Snapshot Grenade

The EM2 here differs slightly from the first one, as this focuses more on long-range combat and negating recoil with the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. This is because when you're up close and personal with enemies, you want to be switching to your dual wield AMP63 pistols, where Amped comes in handy. You need to be seriously close because the recoil on these bad boys is fierce, but if you hit all your bullets then you'll shred through enemies.

Best Warzone Loadouts: Stoner 63 & PPSh-41

Best Warzone loadouts: Stoner 63 & PPSh-41

Next up, we have what is widely considered to be the best LMG in the game. LMGs are often unwieldy and cumbersome, but this loadout helps deal with that.

Stoner 63:

Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
Barrel: 21.8" Task Force
Optic: Axial Arms 3x
Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
Ammunition: Salvo 150 Rnd Fast Mag

PPSh-41:

Muzzle: Sound Suppressor
Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
Stock: Raider Stock
Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
Ammunition: 55 Rnd Drum

Perks:

  • E.O.D
  • Overkill
  • Combat Scout

Equipment:

  • C4
  • Heartbeat Sensor

You've got a lot of bullets at your disposal with this Warzone loadout. The Stoner 63 is an absolute beast at range and can churn through bullets non-stop with the 150 Rnd Fast Mag, before a swift reload lets you carry on. Then you've got the PPSh-41 for indoor combat, which again has a 55 Rnd Drum to spray constantly. The only downside is the hip-fire accuracy isn't great, so utilise the decent iron sights on the Cold War gun for the best results.

Best Warzone Loadouts: FARA 83 & ZRG 20mm

Best Warzone loadouts: FARA 83 & ZRG 20mm

Finally, we have another assault rifle/sniper loadout. This is for those of you who prefer more reliable one-hit-kills with your snipers, with a closer-range assault rifle alongside it.

FARA 83:

Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
Barrel: 18.7" Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
Optic: Hawksmoor
Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip

ZRG 20mm:

Muzzle: Wrapped Suppressor
Barrel: 42.7" SIGMA Special
Underbarrel: Front Grip
Ammunition: Salvo 6 Rnd Fast Mag
Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap

Perks:

  • E.O.D
  • Overkill (High Alert if you get a second loadout)
  • Combat Scout

Equipment:

  • Claymore
  • Heartbeat Sensor

What this offers over the first Kar98k loadout is a more powerful sniper, albeit with less mobility. That's what makes this Warzone loadout a prime choice for those of you who like to find a recon spot in the middle of the safe zone early and hunker down, with a claymore protecting your behind. You can down enemies in one shot with the ZRG 20mm, then switch to the FARA 83 whenever you need to get the heck out of dodge.
