On launch, the NZ-41 was feeling like this year's EM2. That is to say: the slow-firing, recoil-heavy AR, that hits like a truck. It was the high-skill meta; it didn't have high capacity mags, and you needed to be able to control the recoil, but in exchange, it had a great TTK. But after some serious balance changes during Season 3, they massively lowered the recoil, and now this puppy is emerging as the best AR for users of every skill level.
Note: This is a loadout specifically for Warzone. If you want to use the NZ-41 in standard MP (where ammo capacity and range are less important) then you're looking for this guide.
The Best NZ-41 Setup
|Barrel||Orbweaver 360mm BC|
|Optic||SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x|
|Stock||LOR Mk3 SC|
|Underbarrel||M1941 Hand Stop|
|Magazine||Sakura 50 Round Mags|
|Rear Grip||Polymer Grip|
Not a lot has changed from the previous build, basically we only swapped the barrel and stock, since the previous ones got nerfed. This set up still beams people up to 200 m and has non-existent recoil. At least now, we don't have to switch the gun into full-auto, thank god for that. The other attachments are the same as before, and give us the best recoil control possible. After the STG nerfs and the bullet velocity buffs, the NZ-41 got, this is the best AR in Warzone at the moment.
The Best Secondary, Grenades & Perks for an NZ-41 Loadout
The Best Secondary Weapon for the NZ-41
The Welgun allows you to be so quick, and it has an astoundingly strong TTK, so for Season 3 it's our recommended SMG. Of course, you could just go straight for Restock and forget the second weapon, but we think it's worth taking an SMG alongside the NZ.
The Best Equipment for the NZ-41
We've taken the Flash grenades, as they serve the same function (essentially) as Stuns did, but Stuns have been nerfed. And Throwing Knives are always useful in Warzone for finishing fools before they self-res.
The Best Perks for the NZ-41
|Perk 1||Double TIme|
With the NZ-41's limited ammo capacity, and hindrance to our movement speed, we're opting for Amped and Double Time. The former so we can get that Welgun out faster when we're in a bind, and the latter to at least boost our Tac Sprint. Overkill is a necessity because it allows us to take the NZ with a secondary - and we do strongly recommend this over Ghost. At least for the first loady.
That was your complete guide to the NZ-41 in Warzone, a reliable and menacing weapon to say the least. If you're looking for tips and tricks for the new map, then this might interest you.
