The best Warzone Welgun loadouts are the latest to join the ever-growing roster of weapons within this battle royale. Warzone compiled all of its weapons with the launch of Warzone Pacific, bringing weapons from Modern Warfare, Cold War and Vanguard all into the one game, each with their own perks and attachments. However, with the Welgun being the latest, naturally fumbling around to find the best loadouts. That's why we are here to clear the air on the best Warzone Welgun loadouts, and how to unlock the gun in the first place. 

Best Warzone Welgun Loadout: How To Unlock The Welgun In Warzone

Before getting into the best Warzone Welgun loadout, you'll need to unlock the gun. This short-ranged SMG can be a beast in the tighter interior settings of Caldera, so you'll want to unlock it fast. Luckily, unlocking the Welgun isn't tied to a seasonal event, like some guns of the past have been.

Instead, to unlock the Welgun in Warzone you must get 10 ADS (aim down sights) kills with SMGs in a match, 15 times. Now of course, if you are playing Warzone, this might be a bit difficult, so we'd recommend completing this challenge within Vanguard if you own it. Otherwise, head into Rebirth Island or Plunder, which gives you far more opportunity to wrack up those kills.

As is the case with all weapons in Warzone, they can be serviceable on their own, but elevated to another level with the help of the right attachments. So we've got a full breakdown of the best Warzone Welgun loadout, with all the attachments you should be using. 

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: 300mm Wilkie Custom
  • Optic: MK. 8 Reflector
  • Stock: Gawain Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 9mm 64 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Proficiency: Fleet
  • Kit: Fully Loaded 

The factory issue of the Welgun is a pretty powerful SMG, but it lacks somewhat in its mobility, which is largely thanks to its slower fire rate. With that said, attachments like the Recoil Booster and the Gawain Skeletal can ensure you are a snapshot that will beam your opponents health down quickly and precisely.

Topping off the best Warzone Welgun loadout we have the perks, which by all means, should amplify this SMG loadout's efficiency. As such, here are the perks, equipment, and secondary weapons you should take with you on your Welgun rampages. 

  • Perk 1: Cold Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout
  • Secondary: FFAR
  • Lethal: Thermite
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

A small suggestion we will make to our suggestion of perks is that if you aren't too fussed with your second weapons, you can swap out Overkill for Tempered, reducing the amount of armour plates needed, and just pick up another secondary on your travels. 

That's everything you need to craft the best Warzone Welgun loadout. If you are sticking with our suggested secondary, you'd best head over to our Warzone best FFAR loadout, to ensure you are maximising that gun's potential.
