Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone is now live, and with the new Operation Monarch; two new weapons; and patch updates; there also comes a new meta waiting to be discovered. With Rebirth Island and Caldera being two different animals to conquer, it's difficult finding a loadout that perfectly compliments both drop zones, particularly a close-range loadout

However, Warzone expert and content creator JGOD has recently shared a new close-range loadout for both maps of Warzone. which he feels will be the meta for close-quarters combat on either map. Here's how to build it yourself.

JGOD's Best Close Range Warzone Loadout for Season 3

In the video above, JGOD revealed many great options for both Warzone maps, but here was our favorite.

Owen Gun

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Hockenson 142mm Rapid
  • Optic: Nydar Model 47
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 72 Round Mag
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk: Acrobatic
  • Perk1: Quick

Jak 12

  • Muzzle: FORGE TAC Marauder
  • Barrel: ZLR J03699 Torrent
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Magazine: 20 Round Drum Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape


  • Double Time
  • Overkill
  • Amped

According to JGOD, despite its nerf in the new Season 3 update, the Owen Gun remains one of the more powerful SMGs in the game. Its short TTK and high level of mobility make it a great choice on either map. Add a 72 round-mag to it, and you've got yourself one of the better close-range SMGs in the game even in Season 3.

When you need more power, the Jak-12 has always been a great secondary since it's arrival in Modern Warfare. With it's fire rate and power, it’s still top-tier in confined spaces. You can play around with the attachments to fit your preference, say in case your okay without the extra rounds in the Owen Gun and want to swap it for something that helps mobility even more. However, this is a great combination that is worth trying in either Caldera or Rebirth Island in your next drop.
