Kicking off the list is a weapon that has perhaps never gotten a chance in the weapon meta spotlight, the UGR SMG from Black Ops Cold War. It's quietly been buffed several times since it was first added and has become a fun weapon to use.

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 10.7" Task Force
  • Magazine: Explosive Flechettes
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap
  • Stock: Spetsnaz Stock

4. MG 82

Up next is a weapon that's long been an above-average weapon to use in Warzone, the MG 82. Statistically and in-game, the MG 82 can still compete with the best of them in TTK thanks to its great damage and recoil control.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 16.4 Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: 125 Rnd
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x

3. AS44

Quietly remaining to be one of the best sniper support, Resurgence options in the game is the AS44. For those able to control its recoil, the AS44 can still absolutely fry players from close-to-medium range.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 615mm
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Subsonic
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Stock: ZAC 12A
  • Perk: Gung-Ho
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

2. Vargo 52

Similar to the UGR, the Vargo 52 is another recently added Black Ops Cold War weapon that can absolutely compete in today's Warzone meta. With its low recoil and consistent TTK, the Vargo 52 more than holds its own at long ranges.

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.6" Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x

1. M1 Garand

This gun appears primed to turn many players into believers in the coming weeks.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Cooper 25" Custom
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: .30-06 30 Round Mags
