The best Warzone Marco 5 loadouts usher in a new age of close-range proficiency. This new Warzone Season 4: Mercenaries of Fortune submachine gun (SMG) can be dual-wielded Akimbo style, making it a fierce tool in close-quarters combat. The best Warzone Marco 5 loadouts listed below will help you get the most out of this special Call of Duty: Vanguard SMG.

How To Unlock Marco 5 In Warzone And Vanguard

Warzone and Vanguard players will be happy to learn that unlocking the Marco 5 SMG is not tied to completing any challenges. Instead, all you need to do is reach Tier 15 in Season 4: Mercenaries of Fortune Battle Pass. The Marco 5 is a free reward for reaching Tier 15.

Alternatively, players not interested can opt to purchase a Store Bundle that includes a Marco 5 Blueprint if they wish. And if you don't end up reaching Tier 15 during Season 4, there will be an SMG-based unlock challenge available later on to those that missed out on the Marco 5 the first time around.

 

Best Warzone Marco 5 Loadouts: The Akimbo Animal

This particular loadout takes full advantage of the Marco 5's strengths. The Marco 5 offers extreme mobility, excelling at close-range and when fired from the hip. In turn, the Marco 5 struggles at long ranges due to its intense recoil and damage falloff. With this in mind, why not design your Warzone Marco 5 loadout in a way that amplifies this SMG's unique attributes?

The M1929 Silencer is the perfect Muzzle for an Akimbo Marco 5 loadout because it provides sound suppression, improved accuracy, and improved range in exchange for negatively impacting aim down sight (ADS) speed. But what's the point of ADS speed when you can't aim down sight with Akimbo weapons anyway?

The remaining attachments follow a similar trend with the idea of maximizing mobility, recoil control, and hip-fire accuracy while ignoring any penalties to ADS speed. Most importantly, remember to use the Akimbo proficiency, as that's what will allow you to dual-wield these rapid-fire monstrosities.

Considering how potent Akimbo weapons like the Akimbo Snake Shots and the Akimbo Renetti Pistols have been throughout Warzone's history, don't be surprised if Akimbo Marco 5s signal the beginning of a new era when it comes to close-range dominance in Warzone.

  • Muzzle: M1929 Silencer
  • Barrel: Botti 285mm Custom
  • Optic: MK. 8 Reflector
  • Stock: Botti HF Folding
  • Underbarrel: N/A
  • Magazine: 8mm Nambu 64 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Perk 1: Akimbo
  • Perk 2: Quick

Best Warzone Marco 5 Loadouts: Burst-Fire Frenzy

warzone-best-marco-5-loadouts-burst-fire

Not a fan of Akimbos? Or simply want to test the Marco 5 SMG in an unorthodox role? Well, this loadout is for you.

While the Marco 5 is described purely as a close-range killer, there are attachments that help break this preconception. In particular, the Imerito 482mm Burst barrel offers a Burst Fire Toggle. When toggled on, the Marco 5 receives massive boosts to accuracy, control, and damage range. Altogether, this Marco 5 loadout offers solid improvements to the SMG's accuracy, range, fire rate, and control.

This Marco 5 loadout doesn't generate the brute force power of the Akimbo setup, but it's still formidable up close and viable at medium and long-range engagements. Equip these Warzone Marco 5 attachments, toggle on the Burst fire mode, and the results might surprise you.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Imerito 482mm Burst
  • Optic: M38/Slate 2.5x Custom
  • Stock: Imerito FR
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 9mm 48 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Frenzy
  • Perk 2: Quick

Best Warzone Marco 5 Loadouts: Perks And Equipment

warzone-best-marco-5-loadouts-perks-and-equipment

The entire philosophy behind the design of the Warzone Marco 5 is a highly mobile SMG that rules above all in close-range prowess. With this in mind, you'll want to equip Perks and equipment like Double Time and Stims that boost and enhance an aggressive, fast-paced style of play.

Even a setup like our Burst-Fire Frenzy Marco 5 loadout can't truly compete at long distances with DMRs and Snipers. Because of this, we recommend using Overkill and Amped. Use Overkill to equip one of the Warzone best snipers and you'll be ready to engage at any range across the Warzone Fortune's Keep map.

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Kar98k
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

That's all the information you need to create the best Warzone Marco 5 loadout. Let loose with Vanguard's first Akimbo proficient SMG and wreak havoc across Warzone.
