These three best weapons in Warzone's history are here to break down, reflect and chronicle some of the most overpowered guns to ever drop in Verdansk.
With the Call of Duty: Vanguard Open Beta in full effect — allowing players to test out the guns that will soon be added to the battle royale mode's arsenal — here is a recap of the top three best weapons in the title's 11-season history.
3 Best Warzone Loadouts of All Time
3. MG 82 in Season 4 (2021)
A gun that somehow lasted about a week without getting a nerf after the launch of Season 4, the MG 82 was as close as players got to using a Wonder Weapon in Verdansk. With at least 90 rounds in its magazine, the MG 82 had the best TTK in the game at the time along with zero recoil, regardless of players had it equipped in their custom loadouts or simply found them as ground loot.
2. FR 5.56's Underbarrel Shotgun in Season 5 (2020)
Back in August 2020 during the original Season 5, the Warzone devs made a brief buff to the 5.56 in the form of its effective damage range. While that sounded like a harmless change in theory, what actually ended up happening was players using the FR 5.56's shotgun underbarrel attachment were able to have the equivalent of the Golden Gun from GoldenEye 007.
1. DMR 14 in Season 1 (2020-21)
The DMR 14 tactical rifle was so overpowered for so long during Season 1 that players in the community started calling the game DMRzone. Even with full plates, the DMR 14 was a two-shot kill to the head, and with stopping power rounds, a one-shot kill the head. If you weren't using a DMR 14 or a Type 63, you stood no chance in Verdansk at the time.
