Best guns in Warzone Pacific Season 1

10. Grau 5.56

Long-time Warzone players will know the Grau 5.56 very well, with the weapon dominating the meta for months during 2020. While it has received a pretty substantial nerf since then, the Grau is still a dominant force on Verdansk and has remained popular in Warzone Pacific.

The main reason people flock to this gun is its accuracy. In terms of Assault Rifles, there are few that are as easy to handle as this one, and with an easy-to-learn recoil pattern, you can beam enemies across the map if you’re using the best Grau 5.56 Warzone loadout.

9. Bren – Best LMG in Warzone Pacific

Although quite slow, the Bren is an incredibly powerful weapon when used in the right circumstances. You won’t be able to dart around finessing your opponents, but if you get a full squad in your sights and manage to mount, it’s game over for them.

The Bren has a surprisingly strong fire rate and low recoil for an LMG, which makes it a fantastic choice whether you’ve built your own loadout or are using it as ground loot.

8. OTs 9

The OTs 9 has long been a powerful choice in Warzone, and even though it’s a Cold War weapon, it’s still got a place in Warzone Pacific.

Warzone players love a low TTK SMG, and the OTs 9 fits that category perfectly. It has minimal recoil and can kill extremely quickly, which makes it a powerful choice whether you’re pairing it with an Assault Rifle or Sniper Rifle.

You’ll likely still see a ton of OTs 9s in Caldera thanks to its accuracy and power.

7. STG44

The STG44 is an extremely popular choice because it’s the first Assault Rifle you unlock in Vanguard and is extremely easy to use.

It’s almost the M4A1 of WW2, being a great jack of all trades. It’s neither the most powerful nor the most accurate, but players of all skill levels can take advantage of it. Plus, the Gunsmith system allows the STG to be built for almost any situation, but we recommend using it at medium to long range.

6. MP-40

Similar to the STG, the MP40 is incredibly effective because it’s so easy to use and will tear through enemies extremely quickly.

Although it’s the first SMG you unlock, the MP40 has almost no recoil and great mobility. If you’re unsure which SMG to level up and use in Caldera, we can’t recommend the MP40 enough. Plus, there are plenty of great versions of it as ground loot, too.

5. BAR

The BAR isn’t the easiest weapon to use in Warzone Pacific, but there are very few Assault Rifles that can outgun it.

Its slow fire rate makes tracking moving targets quite tough, but each bullet hits like a truck. Once you get used to that slow fire rate, you’ll likely have great success with the BAR – especially when fighting players face-to-face.

It’s not the best at close-range though, so make sure you stick to the outdoors.

4. PPSh-41 – Best SMG in Warzone Pacific

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s SMGs have well and truly entered Warzone’s meta, and the PPSh-41 is top of the pack.

The PPSh-41 originally suffered from the bloom mechanic, but now that’s been removed, it’s become extremely effective at close-medium range. You can run the PPSh along with a Sniper Rifle, Assault Rifle, or LMG – it’s entirely up to you.

So no matter your playstyle, we recommend giving the PPSh-41 a try.

3. Swiss K31

The Swiss K31 wasn’t a particularly strong Sniper Rifle when it was first released, but some powerful buffs to Cold War snipers have made it a very strong option for those who favor picking off enemies from a distance.

This Sniper Rifle has one of the best ADS times in its class, making it a perfect option for quickscopers who like to get into their opponents’ faces.

We’ve ranked it below the Kar98k simply because it has less aim assist, but if you’re a mouse and keyboard player, the Swiss K31 could be the weapon for you.

2. Cooper Carbine – Best Assault Rifle in Warzone Pacific

The Cooper Carbine was new to both Warzone and Vanguard with the launch of Season 1, and quickly became one of the best weapons in the game.

It was originally best suited for close-range but even after Raven Software nerfed it, it’s still remained top of the pack.

Its fast fire rate and extremely low recoil make it an absolute powerhouse at any range, and it’s absolutely the best Assault Rifle in Warzone Pacific Season 1. Don’t be surprised to see it hit with another nerf in the coming days.

1. Kar98k – Best Warzone Sniper/Marksman Rifle in Season 6

If you want a Sniper Rifle that’s both quick and accurate, Modern Warfare’s Kar98k is the strongest choice available. Although being a Marksman Rifle, equipping the Kar with a Sniper Scope will make it the most aggressive sniper build in Warzone.

Being only slightly slower than the Swiss, it’s fast enough that you’ll be able to quickscope enemies up close. Starting a fight with a couple of easy headshots will put your team at a distinct advantage. And with its one-shot headshot and minimal bullet drop, you can effectively snipe at long-range too.

Sniper Rifles still dominate after the Warzone Pacific update, so you’ll want to make sure that someone in your squad is running one – and we fully recommend the Kar98k.


Those are the top 10 weapons you should be using in Warzone Pacific Caldera. Expect this list to keep on changing as weapons are buffed and nerfed.

And if classic multiplayer is more your cup of tea, you can check out the top 10 Vanguard weapons.
