The Best Warzone Owen Gun Loadout | Just Dominating The Meta

The Owen Gun has been meta for as long as I can think. And after countless nerfs, it's still the best SMG. I guess only Warzone 2 will get rid of this weapon.

The Owen Gun took over Warzone and ever since, it has had a grasp of the SMG meta. After multiple nerfs, the gun always finds a new build to bring it back on top. First it was the long barrel and the 9 mm rounds, then the short barrel, and now it's no barrel? The Owen Gun just offers too many great things. Easy to use, great mag size, great TTK and everything you want out of a meta SMG. This new Owen Gun build will help you stay on top, at least till the next nerfs.

After the countless barrel and magazine nerfs, the new best combination is no barrel with the 8 mm Kurz rounds. Other than those changes, it's still the same old Owen Gun. Great ammo count with the 60 round mag, great mobility with the stock and perks and to help with the recoil we have the handstop and polymer grip. Up close, no gun competes with the Owen Gun – I'm not counting you in, Jak-12. Until it gets nerfed again, the Owen Gun will always be the best SMG and the go-to weapon for Warzone pros.

As the Owen Gun doesn't have great range, we want to pair it with a long range. One of the most underrated ARs since its release has been the Vargo 52. The Vargo is a top-tier long-range AR, that's easy to use. The recoil pattern is very easy to memorize and master, so you can start beaming people up to 100 meters with this gun. If you haven't unlocked the Vargo or just don't have it leveled, you can't go wrong with the STG right now. Probably the best AR in Warzone, it's also easy to use and has great long-range capabilities.

The Best Equipment For The Owen Gun


While Semtex is just a good all-around option when you aren't trying to do anything situational with your Lethal slot. Good for vehicles, and infantry. We've mentioned the Stimshot a ton of times now, and we all know that it's the best tactical equipment. It just offers too much flexibility to not use.

The Best Perks for the Owen Gun

Perk 1Cold-Blooded
Perk 2Overkill

Perk 3

Combat Scout

We all know these perks, and we all know what they do and why they're so good. For now, there just isn't enough incentive to use anything else. Maybe the new Serpentine Perk will change up the perk meta, but for now, it's this classic trio.

And there you have the best Owen Gun Loadout. If you're tired of using the Owen Gun, give the Welgun a try again.
