The best Warzone NZ41 loadouts have quickly become the most formidable in both Caldera and Rebirth Island thanks to some incredible buffs. The highly accurate Assault Rifle has taken Warzone by storm since the most recent weapon update, but can be quite a tricky weapon to get right. So, here are the right attachments, perks, and equipment, for your best Warzone NZ41 loadout.

Best NZ41 Warzone Loadout: Low-Level

The true power of this Vanguard Assault Rifle is only unlocked at the higher levels, meaning you will have to grind quite a bit to get the better attachments. Having never been a meta choice before, either in Warzone or Vanguard, the likelihood is that your NZ41 will be an extremely low level, and you might need some help getting up to speed. This doesn't mean that the best NZ41 Warzone loadouts can't be adapted to suit low-level gunsmiths though.


Some quick to unlock attachments work perfectly in your best NZ41 Warzone loadout, such as the MX Silencer, whereas you might be best completely ditching other choices. No barrels will add much to your NZ41 until the final one is unlocked, so you're better off with the default one. The Carver Foregrip, Rubber Grip, and LDR Mk3 SC Stock will all help to reduce recoil - a much-needed adaptation - and can be great for low levels.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer 
  • Barrel: N/A 
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: LDR Mk3 SC
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 40 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Rubber Grip
  • Perk 1: Brace
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Once you've got all the necessary tools to fully control the NZ41's high recoil pattern, you'll be able to keep it as straight as an arrow, with the right combination. Here, the best Warzone NZ41 loadouts will see most attachments change for ones with more power, albeit the trusted Lengthened and MX Silencer will stay.

Trading out the optic for a 3-6x will improve accuracy and equipping the burst barrel - but persisting in the auto fire rather than the three-round shots - will contribute to its range, while the M1941 Hand Stop, Hatched Grip, and Orbweaver E Pack will make sure the NZ41 has zero recoil.

Topping off the best Warzone NZ41 loadout is the 50 Round Mag, which does have a slight negative impact on the damage, but will decrease recoil, increase fire rate, and give you more scope to kill multiple enemies without reloading.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: LOR Mk1 Burst
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Orbweaver E Pack
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 50 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
  • Perk 1: Brace
  • Perk 2: On-Hand 

Best NZ41 Warzone Loadout: Perks And Equipment

The new Warzone Serpentine perk has quickly evolved to a necessity in your best Warzone NZ41 loadouts.  Reducing incoming damage from bullets, explosives, and fire by 20%, this has become pretty much vital to any Warzone player. Combining Serpentine with the two other perks that assist in saving your life is your best bet. 

Ghost has since been overthrown as a necessary choice in Perk 2, having been nerfed in Season 3, making Tempered your best choice. Having the ability to add armour 33% quicker (only having two plates instead of the usual three cuts your overall time down by a third) is essential to staying alive in Warzone now, whether it be with an AR in Caldera or with an SMG in Rebirth.

Although the increased explosive damage in recent weeks has seen Battle Hardened become quite popular, using Combat Scout is still your best bet to win games, after all, you need to kill people to be the lone survivor. In the best Warzone NZ41 loadouts, we'd advise Combat Scout in order to make sure your shots stay true, and it can be a strong counter to SMG players who won't ego-challenge you when they know you can see their every move.

As for equipment, the Throwing Knife and Stim combo are inevitable now. The fine blade of a knife will have your downed enemies heading straight to the Gulag and will spare you unnecessary reloads, while Stim's are either a get out of jail free card or your best offensive weapon when the gunfights become quite sticky. There's also no need for Overkill too, as the AMP63 is just as good as most SMGs in the current meta too. 

  • Perk 1: Serpentine
  • Perk 2: Tempered
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout
  • Secondary: AMP63
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stim

Now, you've got all the tools to create the best Warzone NZ41 loadout, it's on you to execute. Should the NZ41's prowess continue, it could be a favourite to top the best Warzone loadouts lists.
