Warzone Season 5 Best Meta Weapons 2022
Before we jump into our list, we must first underline a few facts. This list was compiled based on our previous experience, the meta from previous seasons, Season 5 balance changes, new weapons, and other additions in Warzone Pacific Season 5. Also, we have experimented a lot with new and modified weapons. Ultimately, we took all of these factors into consideration to come up with our list of the best weapons in Warzone Season 5 2022. That said, the meta is not set in stone, and it depends on many things.
While we find this list to be very accurate, it’s still a subjective opinion at the end of the day. Some weapons may be better suited to your preferred playstyle or work better in certain scenarios. A healthy meta always experiences fluctuations and micro changes on a daily and weekly basis. Therefore, the popularity and effectiveness of some weapons are bound to change. With that being said, here’s what we think are the best Warzone Season 5 meta weapons at the start of the new season.
Best Assault Rifle (AR) in Warzone Season 5 2022 – KG M40
Introduced in Season 2, the KG M40 assault rifle has become a powerful meta weapon throughout Season 4 and continues its reign in Season 5. This fully automatic Scandinavian assault rifle boasts the second damage per shot (DPS) highest in its class, which is combined with a decent rate of fire. On top of that, it’s one of the easiest weapons to use, and with the right attachments, you can control its recoil to unnoticeable levels. What don’t I like about it?
The Best Submachine Gun (SMG) in Warzone Season 5 2022 – Armaguerra 43
The Armaguerra 43 SMG continues the tradition of dominance when it comes to Vanguard SMGs in Warzone. Since the early days of the Vanguard meta, SMGs from the latest Call of Duty WWII game have wreaked havoc in Warzone Pacific. The Wararm 43 offers one of the best damage ranges in its class, along with a lightning-fast rate of fire. This makes it perfect for hybrid builds where you want to close the distance quickly. The only problem we have with this SMG is its excruciating recoil, but that can thankfully be alleviated somewhat with a proper set of attachments. Despite the nerfs in the Season 5 update, we think it’s still one of the best SMGs in the game.
The best sniper or marksman rifle in Warzone Season 5 2022 – LW3 Tundra
You’re probably wondering now, “WHAT?!”, but hear us out. The LW3 Tundra has already been a decent sniper for several seasons. And with the most recent substantial improvements in the Season 5 update, we think the LW3 Tundra is a dark horse this season. His damage multiplier has been improved across the board. And, with its excellent bullet speed, it has almost become a scanning weapon. You’ll be able to pick off unsuspecting enemies from incredible distances, and with the newly improved aim stability, that’s easier than ever!
Best Light Machine Gun (LMG) in Warzone Season 5 2022 – UGM-8
It’s no secret that LMGs are struggling to gain a foothold in the Warzone meta. However, if you’re dead set on playing an LMG in Warzone Season 5, the UGM-8 is the way to go. However, you should know that this is a high skill, high reward weapon. It is quite difficult to use it correctly, but it will be worth it once you get the hang of it. It has incredible fire rate and its overall stats result in an absurd TTK, as long as you can control it. That’s right, this LMG is ridiculously difficult to control due to its recoil adjustments in previous updates. But, if you are able to overcome that problem, you will find yourself with funny moments.
Best Shotgun in Warzone Season 5 2022 – Combat Shotgun
Finally, for all the lovers of raw power, who like to get things up close and personal. The buffed combat shotgun is still king in season 5. In the reloaded season 4 update, shotguns saw their pellet damage increase by 26%, and players immediately learned how to abuse this. It is a fast, relatively mobile, two-shot close range weapon that takes out most targets in an instant. It is incredibly effective in tight areas with many aisles and small sections. We really consider it an obvious choice, if you’re leaning towards this style of play.
And with that, our tier list of the best meta weapons in Warzone Pacific Season 5 is complete. Overall, the meta is currently pretty stable and well balanced. So while the weapons listed above are slightly above average, plenty of other options are also viable. Feel free to experiment with the builds. Explore various options and see which loadouts will best suit your style of play. Have fun in Warzone Pacific Season 5 and show them who is the best in Last Stand before Warzone 2!
