Every season of Call of Duty: Warzone features a very distinctive meta. This list of top-tier weapons usually takes about two weeks to form after the release of the patch.

The same can be said for the Season 4 Reloaded patch, which went live on July 27. After the latest rebalancing update on August 3, players have had enough time to analyze the changes and have a clear-cut picture of the season's meta weapons.

With the total weapon count of Call of Duty: Warzone nearing the double century, players are having a much harder time selecting guns for their custom loadouts. For this reason, this article will index the 10 most powerful weapons of the season that Operators can choose to equip their loadouts with.

Meta weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone have a few characteristics that are common to them. Among these attributes, recoil control, damage value, muzzle velocity, and time-to-kill (TTK) are the most important factors that determine the viability of the firearm.

Meta weapons in Warzone must have a good combination of these attributes to be successful over their counterparts. Just like the previous season, this one also has a distinct list of meta weapons.


10) H4 Blixen

The Marco 5 is the latest SMG to be added to Call of Duty: Warzone in the Season 4 patch. This weapon has risen through the ranks very quickly to establish its place in the meta.

The gun is characterized by its high accuracy, fire rate, and excellent TTK. It is definitely one of the best close-quarter weapons that players can use on smaller maps like Fortune Keep and Rebirth Island.

The Armaguerra 43 is a very powerful meta SMG. It can even be considered the best SMG available in Season 4 Reloaded.

Despite having a rough time in the last few seasons, this gun has gained the position of the top meta SMG due to the nerfs that its counterparts have received with this patch.

However, that does not change the fact that this domineering weapon is one of the best strafe SMGs this season. It is the go-to firearm for many streamers and expert players.

The best attachments for this weapon are as follows:

The UGM-8 is the newest LMG that has been added to Call of Duty: Warzone with the Season 4 patch.

Traditionally, LMGs in Warzone are criticized for their abysmal mobility and high aim-down-sight (ADS) time. However, UGM-8 is different in this regard. Not only does the light machine gun have near AR-like mobility, but it is also an excellent weapon to beam enemies at long range.

The weapon has been further buffed in Season 4 Reloaded, and the best setup for it is as follows:

  • Muzzle - MX Silencer
  • Barrel - Bernard XL214 736mm
  • Optics - SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x

The Nikita AVT is one of the best available ARs that players can currently equip in Call of Duty: Warzone. The Season 4 Reloaded patch has been especially bountiful for this gun. The weapon has received buffs to its normal and ADS movement speed, thus mitigating the mobility problem that it was afflicted with.

The Nikita AVT is currently one of the most powerful ARs available in the game and sports one of the fastest TTKs in its category. The most effective attachments for this weapon are as follows:

  • Barrel - Empress 613mm BFA

The NZ-41 is another household name in the Call of Duty: Warzone community. Since it was added to the game, this meta AR has maintained its dominance over others in its category for a really long time. However, several consecutive nerfs introduced with the Season 4 patch have led to the downfall of the previous King of ARs.

While the long-range potential of the NZ-41 has been severely downgraded, it can still fry opponents with ease in mid-range combat due to its high damage and good recoil control.

The most effective attachments for this AR are as follows:

  • Muzzle - MX Silencer
  • Barrel - Orbweaver 360mm BC
  • Optics - SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock - Orbweaver E Pack

The Vargo 52 is the only non-Vanguard weapon to feature on this list. It was added to Call of Duty: Warzone with the integration of Black Ops Cold War weapons.

This is a very powerful AR platform in Season 4 Reloaded and is mainly used by players to engage enemies in mid-range to long-range combat.

The Vargo 52 is famous for its high rate of fire and excellent muzzle velocity. Players can kit this weapon with the following attachments to get the most optimum results:

  • Muzzle - GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel - 18.6" Task Force

The Cooper Carbine is one of the easiest guns to use in Call of Duty: Warzone. This Vanguard AR is known among the Operators for its minimal recoil and very high fire rate. These two attributes combine to create a powerful weapon that excels even in the hands of novice players.

Despite having one of the worst recoils among the weapons mentioned in this article, the AS44 is still the most powerful AR currently available in the game in terms of theoretical TTK. Most streamers of the game consider this gun to be a high-skill, high-reward weapon.

Those who have mastered the recoil management for this weapon are bound to win most gunfight engagements against their opponents in Season 4 Reloaded.

The best setup for the AS44 is as follows:

When it comes to meta ARs in Season 4 Reloaded, the KG M40 is, without a doubt, the undisputed emperor among its brethren.

Though its theoretical TTK is not the fastest, this gun definitely sports the fastest realistic TTK among all the ARs currently available in the game. This weapon can achieve this feat due to its extremely low recoil control.

The likelihood of landing headshots with the KG M40 is so high that developers had to specifically nerf its headshot damage multiplier to bring some balance in the meta.

The current meta build for this Vanguard AR is as follows:

  • Muzzle - MX Silencer
  • Barrel - Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded
  • Optics - SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock - VDD 22G Padded
  • Underbarrel - Mark VI Skeletal
