What is the meta in Warzone 2?

Warzone 2 has been out for over a month, and we have a very good idea of the actual absolute meta in Warzone 2. This article will focus on giving you the best loadout for the five best weapons in Warzone 2 Battle Royale.

The absolute meta weapons are RPK, TAQ-56, P890, Vaznev-9k, and the Fennec 45. If you had to choose the two best guns for the ultimate loadout, it would surely be the RPK paired with the Fennec 45. Even if I don't think the snipers are absolute meta, I will still give you the best sniper loadout right now: the Signal 50.

The RPK is, without a doubt, the best gun in the game for long-range. The combination of the time to kill, the mobility, and the big magazine make it the absolute meta. If you don't like it or want to use something else as primary, you can read a previous article:

Same as for the RPK, there are no doubts about the Fennec being the absolute meta for close range. The fire rate is just insane, which makes the Time To Kill almost instant. The good news is, on the opposite of the Warzone 1 Fennec, you now have a 45-round mag to make it suitable.

The Taq-56 is a great alternative to the RPK. It's also an excellent primary weapon for long-range and maybe a bit more versatile towards mid-range. You can also use the Kastov 762 instead of the TAQ-56.

In Warzone 2, it's highly possible that you will not want to grab an overkill loadout, mostly because the perk packages are not editable, and only one package has overkill. Despite a recent nerf, the P890 is still the best secondary pistol for Warzone 2. You could argue the X12 Akimbos are better thanks to the extended mag, or the X13 Akimbo is better thanks to the automatic capabilities. But in my opinion, P890 Akimbos is still better.

The Vaznev-9k is the best alternative to the Fennec. It's way easier to use and more versatile.

The Signal 50 has a great fire rate and a great 2-shot-down potential. Very similar to the Gorenko that dominated Warzone 1 (and still does) for months. If you don't like the Signal 50, I recommend going with the SP-X 80.
