The Best Warzone Pacific BAR Loadout | Now Top-Tier AR

If you're looking for one of the easiest-to-use long range options, then look no further. This is the current BAR meta attachment setup and loadout.

The BAR was buffed in the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update, and now it's probably only second to the STG. It's got great range and good damage for an AR, but most importantly it has almost zero horizontal recoil with the right attachment setup. This makes landing follow-up shots laughably easy. So let's get into the current attachment setup meta, and the best loadout for a BAR in Warzone.

Note: This loadout is for Warzone, if you're looking for the best BAR setup in standard multiplayer, then you're looking for this loadout guide.

To get this build, you'll need to get to level 69 for the M1941 Hand Stop, but if you bought Vanguard's Season 1 Battle Pass, then you'll already have a blueprint that gets a majority of these attachments. And the BAR isn't a bad gun at base, so this is never tortuous or long to level-up. In terms of the build, we're focusing on making this as low-recoil as possible. We also want to buff range, and so we can sacrifice some mobility.

The BAR is a great long-range option, but it's just too sluggish to win gunfights in anything from the 25 m and in range. We're therefore taking this with Overkill and an MP40 on backup.

The MP40 is basically the go-to close-range support weapon right now; it's the MP5 of Vanguard. This setup drops the Gorenko 45 round mags for 64 round drums, but if you prefer being lighter on your feet, and you can take advantage of fast movement, then swap back to Gorenko ammo. Similarly, you might want to drop the VDD 34M Padded for something with less recoil control but greater mobility, but we've taken it because this is a build for all skill-levels.

The Best Equipment for the BAR


Nothing too exciting here, but we want our builds to be playable in BR and Vanguard Royale, so we have quite a restricted array of equipment to choose from. Most people will find these two options the easiest, and least complicated to use.

The Best Perks for the BAR

Perk 1Cold-Blooded
Perk 2Overkill

Perk 3

Combat Recon

We mentioned why we're taking Overkill previously, because the BAR is not versatile enough to be a main weapon in a ghosty class. Besides Overkill, we've gone for Combat Recon because it's so great on Caldera right now, and Cold-Blooded to counter others using the popular Combat Recon perk.

If you've tried the BAR, but you want something that's just a bit more versatile and mobile, then maybe you're looking for Warzone's best all-rounder - the STG44.
