Warzone finally has a ranked mode. The ranked mode is trios only on Al Mazrah, and shields are banned. Here is the best loadout you can use.
Warzone Season 3: Reloaded finally gave CoD's BR a ranked mode. In this article we will go through the best possible loadout for an average player trying to rank up, this is the absolute meta for Warzone ranked.
Quite predictably this loadout will consist of a long-range AR and an SMG. You might consider a sniper, but we would advise against it for most players. While a sniper can be very fun, and it might let you steal some kills from afar, in desperate situations a sniper will not save you – an SMG can.
If you want to play Warzone ranked seriously, then you should also consider the following after you've read this article:
- Make sure you are using all the best settings (updates will often reset your settings).
- If you're a controller player, get an advanced controller with back-paddles.
- To make levelling new weapons easier as the meta shifts, we advise getting a copy of Modern Warfare 2.
Best Warzone Ranked Loadout: ISO Hemlock & Lachmann Sub
Primary Weapon: Lachmann Sub / MP5 (SMG)
We put the Lachmann in our primary slot because if we're in a situation where we need to quickly grab our loadout and fight, the SMG is the best option. Here is the best loadout for the Lachmann:
|Muzzle||XTEN Razor Comp||Aim Down Sight Speed (-0.80 oz) / Gun Kick Control (+0.35 in)|
|Barrel||L38 Falcon 226MM||Aim Walking Speed (-0.50 lb) / Damage Range (+0.40 in)|
|1MW Quick Fire Laser||Sprint To Fire Speed (-0.50 oz) / Aim Down Sight Speed (-51.00 ft)|
|Rear Grip||Lachmann TCG-10||Aim Down Sight Speed (-1.00 oz) / Sprint To Fire Speed (-0.45 in)|
|Magazine||60 Round Drum||Default|
The Lachmann already has fantastic mobility and a great TTK. But we need to add more rounds for Warzone, so we've gone for the 50 round magazine. We also need slightly more damage range for Warzone, so we've taken the extended barrel. With the other three attachments, we've just tried to make the most efficient tradeoffs for an SMG: the laser gives us a little extra mobility, while both the muzzle device and the stock increase recoil control.
Secondary Weapon: ISO Hemlock
In the secondary slot, our long-range AR:
|Muzzle||Zulu-60||Recoil Smoothness (+1.40 oz) / Bullet Velocity (+1.00 in)|
|Barrel||Fielder-T50||Recoil Steadiness (+0.50 lb) / Damage Range (+0.40 in)|
|Magazine||45 Round Mag||Default|
|Underbarrel||Demo Firm Grip||Recoil Stabilization (+0.78 oz) / Aiming Idle Stability (+0.40 in)|
That was the best loadout for Warzone ranked. We hope you found it helpful.
If you find yourself enjoying Call of Duty played competitively, then we recommend checking out the CDL on the weekends. Multiplayer is quite different to Warzone of course, but it scratches the competitive itch.
Next year's game does not fill us with hope...
