The best Warzone Vargo-S loadout goes toe-to-toe with staples of the meta, like the NZ-41. The Vargo-S assault rifle (AR) is new with the Warzone Season 4: Mercenaries of Fortune midseason update and features exceptional accuracy and fire rate. The best Warzone Vargo-S loadout listed below makes the most out of this Call of Duty: Vanguard assault rifle's natural strengths.

How To Unlock The Vargo-S In Warzone And Vanguard

There are a couple of different ways to unlock the Vargo-S assault rifle in Warzone and Vanguard. If you're willing to dedicate some time, you can complete the Vargo-S in-game challenge to unlock the brand-new assault rifle for free. Thankfully, the challenge is relatively easy; all you need to do is achieve 15 close-range kills in either Warzone or Vanguard.

Don't feel like waiting or wasting time on any challenges? Alternatively, you can purchase the Seven Voyages Bundle in the Store for 1,200 CoD Points. Doing so will unlock a Legendary Vargo-S Blueprint for use in Vanguard and Warzone.

The Vargo-S assault rifle isn't as naturally powerful as others in its class, but it makes up for it in the accuracy and fire rate department. In fact, with the right attachments, the Vargo-S can compete with the top dogs in the Warzone meta.

The goal for this best Warzone Vargo-S loadout is to enhance the gun's recoil control to a point where the kick is unnoticeable — even through sustained fire. While we're at it, we'll focus on improving the Vargo-S's accuracy, damage, and range, effectively transforming it into a long-range killing machine. The attachments in this loadout inflict minor penalties to the Vargo-S's fire rate and mobility, but these stats remain high enough to compete with the best ARs in the class, so it's an easy tradeoff.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Mirzoyan 414mm Custom
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6X
  • Stock: Mirzoyan ANC
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 45 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
  • Perk 1: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded


Select attachments on this list, like the MX Silencer, Lengthened ammunition, and Hatched Grip, are clear-cut choices. These are among the best attachments in their respective slots, not to mention the benefits to horizontal and vertical recoil control, damage range, bullet velocity, and flinch resistance, all aligning perfectly with what we're trying to achieve in this loadout.

Other selections, such as the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6X optic and 45 Round Drums, are up for debate. Some Warzone players may prefer a smaller, more compact optic like the G16 2.5x. Others may feel that they need even more ammunition in their magazine, which in that case, would want to opt for the 60 Round Drums at the cost of mobility, control, and range. Either way, there's some flexibility in these attachment slots.

All-in-all, this best Warzone Vargo-S loadout stays true to the assault rifle's core design while amplifying its capabilities.

Best Warzone Vargo-S Loadout: Perks And Equipment

The Warzone Serpentine Perk is truly overpowered at the moment, so much so that Raven Software announced that a nerf is coming at some point in the near future. But until then, you'll want to run this in the Perk 1 slot.

While the Vargo-S can hold its own close-up, it's primarily a medium to long-range weapon. With this in mind, consider using Overkill and pairing it with one of the Warzone best SMGs. Combined with Amped in the Perk 3 slot, you'll be ready for battle at a moment's notice — whether near or far.

As far as equipment goes, Stims are great for healing on the go and boosting mobility even further, while Semtex grenades are clutch for finishing off enemies hiding behind cover.

  • Perk 1: Serpentine
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Marco 5
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

That's all the information you need to create the best Warzone Vargo-S loadout. Try testing it out on some zombies in Warzone Rebirth of the Dead.

The Warzone best Marco 5 loadouts are a perfect pairing with the Vargo-S.
