Best Guns in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded 

In Season 3 Reloaded, Warzone developers decided to nerf several Weapons while buffing others. Read more about it in our Detailed Season 3 Patch Notes. But you should know that Best Guns won’t get you to victory; you need to have the Best Settings for PC and Best Settings for PS4 if you are on either system.

Going through Shroud’s Warzone Setup and Symfuhny’s Warzone Setup will also give you an idea of how to set up your game to get the best experience.

Here is our list of the ten best weapons in Season 3 of COD Warzone. 

STG44 

Although Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded didn’t make any changes to STG44, it has remained in the meta. In Season 3 Reloaded, this AR is the most powerful out of the bunch. There is not one AR right now that can compete with STG44. We can blindly recommend STG44 as one of the Best Guns in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded.

STG44, one of best guns in warzone season 3 reloaded.
STG44 has remained in the meta unchallenged.

STG44 packs low-recoil and has a long-range compared to other ARs. So you can expect this deadly weapon to deal lethal damage in a medium to long-range fight. This gets even better if you use the G16 2.5x optics. With this, if a player comes in your sights, they won’t be able to escape easily.

STG44 supports up to 10 attachments instead of five, allowing you to increase the overall performance. It posed a tough competition with the Cold War AK47 and Cooper Carbine. But the AK47 got nerfed in the recent update.

Loadout

As for the loadout, we suggest the following attachments.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: VOD 760mm 058
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: VOD 27 Precision
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 60 Round Drum
  • Ammunition: Subsonic Ammunition
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: On-Hand
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand

Cooper Carbine 

Cooper Carbine was already in the meta when the Season 3 Reloaded came. In this Season, the Cooper Carbine’s maximum damage range got buffed, and it was increased to 27.9 meters. This bought Cooper Carbine up in the meta. And when other ARs got nerfed, Cooper Carbine came up as the best low recoil AR.

one of best guns is Cooper Carbine
Due to its low recoil and high fire rate, Cooper Carbine is a fan favorite.

The Cooper Carbine is as powerful as an AR in Rebirth Island and Cladera, as is the STG44. And the players who have been with Cooper Carbine since its release know how much of a reliable gun it is.

The 60 Round magazine attachment gives you more bullets, while other attachments ensure that your fire rate goes up. You won’t have to worry about your recoil, as the attachments make its already low recoil even lower and give you better recoil control.

Loadout

As for the complete attachments list, here’s what we put on our Cooper Carbine.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: 22” Cooper Custom
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x

The MP40 has successfully been one of the most famous weapons in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded. In the list of Best Guns in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, there isn’t any SMG that can compete with it.

MP40 SMG in best guns in warzone season 3 reloaded.
When it comes to Best Guns in Warzone, MP40 is an undefeated SMG.

The Journey of MP40’s popularity started in Season 1 when professional Warzone players picked it up in their loadout. The reason they chose it is because of its versatility and because it is capable of shredding enemies up close. Even if they get away from you, the MP40 is still usable in mid-range.

Players love to pick it up as sniper support as it has great accuracy that allows you to deal damage even at mid-range. Although the limited fire rate is a drawback for this SMG, it makes up for the qualities mentioned above. And due to this, MP40 is still a favorite after nerfs.

Loadout

For the Loadout of MP40, we recommend this loadout. A detailed loadout with what equipment to choose or which primary weapon goes best with MP40 can be found in our MP40 loadout for Warzone Season 3.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: VDD 189mm Short
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Krausnick 33M Folding
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop

BAR – Best 

With the STG44 and Cooper Carbine in the AR category, the competition is tough in the Season 3 Reloaded Meta’s AR category. It is a weapon that has still managed to make up its meta in the list.

BAR in Best Guns in warzone season 3 reloaded.
BAR is famous for its slow fire rate and high damage.

BAR has its class. It is for the players who are tired of the STG44 and Cooper Carbine’s meta and want to try something new. It has a slow rate of fire, but still, the weapon stays in meta with other fast-firing weapons. That is thanks to its accurate shots and reasonably high damage.

The BAR has a high range of damage. And it packs an impressive TTK. If you still haven’t had the opportunity to test the weapon, now’s the moment to try it out.

Loadout

If you are trying it for the first time, we recommend this loadout for BAR in Warzone Season 3.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: CGC 27” 2B
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Cooper SP
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 40 Rounds Mag
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Kar98k

Even though there are tons of Snipers in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, Some players often go to Marksman Rifles as a substitute for snipers. But eventually, these Marksman Rifles feel like a diet Sniper Rifle. But when it comes to Best Guns in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, there isn’t any other Marksman Rifle to compete with Kar98k.

Kar98k is marksman rifle in Warzone.
One of the best Marksman Rifles that we love to use is the Kar98k.

Although Kar98k got a taste of nerfing, this nerf wasn’t significant enough to affect its overall performance. Kar98k still is a good competitive weapon in the current meta. And that is thanks to its mobility and fast ADS. This allows you to run around and scope in quickly to shoot at enemies. It is an easy-to-use rifle.

If you’re a Sniper user in Warzone, check out our Best Audio Settings [2022] to hear even the faintest of enemy footprints.

Loadout

While using Kar98k, you need to take care of one thing. And that is, it can’t do a one-shot kill past the 55 meters range. So pick it up if you’re playing on the Rebirth Island map. There it will surely be effective.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6”
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb
  • Laser: Tac Laser

Bren 

One thing that the Season 3 Reloaded update didn’t affect was the light machine guns. And thanks to that, LMG’s meta hasn’t changed. In the list of LMGs, the Bren has stayed in the meta for a long time. And we’re happy to inform you that in Season 3 Reloaded, Bern is in the meta.

Best Guns in warzone season 3 reloaded has bren in it too.
Bren is the perfect LMG to use in Season 3 Reloaded.

Bren has been in the meta due to certain loadouts that provide it with solid damage that has a long range. At the same time, the headshot capability of Bren allows you to nail down enemies in mere seconds. Some pro players like to add the 100-round magazine attachment. If you haven’t been using the magazine attachment, now’s the time to do it.

Loadout

And if you’re going to use Bren for the first time, you should consider using our preferred loadout for it in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Queen’s 705mm Royal
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Hockenson SP2B
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: .303 British 100 Round Drum
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

AX50

AX50 had its peak of popularity with the hitscan bug. In the Hitscan bug, the long-range weapon ignores the concept of bullet drop, and the bullet hits at the crosshair mark.

And in the case of AX50, this range was as long as 400 meters. As long as this bug lasted, AX50 was a go-to for every sniper in the game.

AX50 recently became broken due to a hitscan bug.

But that isn’t the only reason for AX50’s popularity. It is now a one-shot one-kill weapon with the new update. And the faster bullet cycle rate, even though it is a bolt-action rifle, is insanely low.

That, combined with the relatively lower aim down sight speed, makes it a good weapon even for 2v1 battles in Warzone. As for the Best Guns in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, AX50 is the best sniper to fit on that list.

Loadout

As for its loadout, we prefer using attachments that increase its bullet velocity. This way, you’ll be able to increase its range and take out enemies while sniping in secrecy. For the full detail on this loadout, here’s our AX50 Loadout for Warzone Season 3.

    • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
    • Barrel: 32” Factory Barrel
    • Laser: Tac Laser
    • Stock: Singuard Arms Assassin
    • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

Type 100

A while ago, the Owen Gun was known as the most popular SMG. But since the latest update of Season 3 Reloaded, Type 100 has replaced it. And Season 3 Reloaded is the update that made Type 100 get all the attention it deserves.

Type 100 in Warzone Season 3 reloaded's best guns.
Type 100 comes with manageable recoil control.

If you’re looking for a superb loadout, then we recommend pairing Type 100 with one of the meta ARs. the AR, preferably the STG44, will take care of enemies at medium-long range, whereas Type 100 will clear enemies at close range.

Overall, it is easy to use, thanks to the manageable recoil pattern. Once you get used to it, enemies near you will stay in your gun’s crosshair, wherever they run.

Loadout

Type 100 is a powerful SMG with a strong TTK. To fully maximize it, you can check out the build below. By using this build, Type 100 becomes a great competitor for the MP40.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Warubachi 134mm Rapid
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Warubachi Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short 36 Rounds Mags
  • Ammunition: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Rubber Grip
  • Perk 1: Gung Ho
  • Perk 2: Quick

Automaton

Since Automaton came out, it became known as the top dog in the game. But then the weapon was nerfed down to oblivion. And now, slowly and steadily, Automaton is back as one of the best ARs in Warzone.

Automaton in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded's list of best guns.
Automaton has great loadout opportunities.

Automaton and Cooper Carbine feel quite similar on the battlefield. Both have low recoil, have a great range, are deadly accurate, and both have a fast fire rate. But this is what most Warzone players look for, as these types of weapons are easy to control. Because of this, Automaton has a significantly high pick rate. And we are equally surprised hot Automaton got lucky and dodged the nerf train of Warzone Season 3 Reloaded.

Loadout

Anyways, back to business. These factors alone don’t make it a weapon to choose blindly. It would be best if you had the perfect loadout. This loadout will fix the little bits of improvement that it misses.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: ZAC 600mm BFA
  • Optic: SVT-40 PL Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Anastasia Padded
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 75 Round Drum
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

XM4

COD Black Ops Cold War’s XM4 is a famous weapon in the Warzone community. And because of this, the weapon has been the target of a few buffs and nerfs. Because of constantly getting buffed and nerfed, it comes and goes out of meta quite often.

XM4 is one of best weapons in warzone.
XM4 is a favorite fan weapon in Warzone.

But with the Season 3 Reloaded update, Warzone developers have been generous with the weapon and bought it back in the meta. It’s as if the players were waiting for this update, and it became one of the most popular ARs in Warzone.

The XM4, known as the AR, is the jack of all trades. If you are looking for a weapon that has a middling range and that offers great mobility with decent damage output, then the XM4 is the AR to go. Although it is not as great as STG44, it is not the worst on the list too.

Loadout

If you pick up the right attachments, then XM4 is a great option, whether you choose to drop into Rebirth Island or Caldera. The loadout for XM4 that we recommend is:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 13.5” Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 60 Round

Conclusion

Our list of 10 Best Guns in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded covers all types of weapons. Whether you’re looking for an AR, SMG, Marksman Rifle, or Sniper Rifle, the list won’t disappoint you.

In the category of ARs, STG44 leads to the front with BAR and Cooper Carbine right behind it. Whereas when we look at the SMGs, the MP40 seems to lead the list. In Marksman Rifles, the Kar98k holes onto its crown, but one more buff will make it lose that crown.

In LMGs, the Bren is leading the crowd. Although the Snipers in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded were a disappointment, AX50 has made it onto the top with the Best Guns.

We hope that this list of Best Guns in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded has what you need. And with that, we wish you happy hunting.
