We all know it, the developers of Warzone are regularly updating the game in order to balance the various weapons we have in the game. There are more than 170 guns available in Warzone right now, and we can only imagine how hard it must be to have a balanced pool of weapons. Of course, it’s almost impossible to reach a state where ALL the guns are usable, but it’s great to see that there are more than 30 weapons that are currently at the minimum viable in Warzone.
Make sure to check out the homepage of this website to see the full Warzone Meta Ranking and loadouts for all of the guns.
The long range Meta
Just a word on the long range meta, before investigating the close range. Before the season 3 update, i believe the long range meta was more balanced that it is now. The STG-44 is really above the competition right now, mostly thanks to an insane bullet velocity, great mobility, great TTK and low recoil.
The Bar is also getting some love recently, but require a little bit more skills than the STG-44. It’s an high risk high reward gun, especially if you hit headshots.
There are other weapons that can be considered as meta in the long range category, make sure to check out the meta ranking to explore those options.
Close range Meta
Is it not amazing that after 7’000+ votes, those 4 guns are almost tied and in the 20-30% range? This, is what i call an open meta, with multiple guns that are amazing to play with without being outgunned by others. Note that in the reply there are many mentions of the MP-40 too, that is clearly making a comeback after the recent nerfs of the Owen Gun.
Now let’s deep dive into each of those weapons and show the best loadouts!
H4 Blixen Warzone Loadout
The H4 Blixen is the new SMG released with the season 3 reloaded update the 22nd of May.
It’s probably the most versatile close range gun in Warzone right now. It’s amazing whether you want to use it as an aggressive loadout or a sniper support.
You cannot be disappointed with it.

Type 100 Warzone Loadout
My Favorite gun right now, and the true absolute meta in terms of time to kill.
It’s only held down by the magazine size (36 if you want the good TTK) so that’s why i would not advise this gun to be used in Trio or Quads. But i’ve seen some streamer use it in Quads and still destroy their opponents.

Armaguerra Warzone Loadout
Probably the second most versatile weapon right now after the H4 Blixen! So many ways to build it with short or long barrel and still have great stats!
