Low Pick Rate AR Dominates Warzone

With the final season of Warzone upon us, players have begun to look away from the meta guns in Call of Duty: Warzone and have instead shifted their focus to other, less-picked guns. One of these guns, the Volkssturmgewehr, has proven that even guns with a low pick rate can be diamonds in the rough.

Thanks to WZRanked, we can see that despite only being picked in less than one percent of lobbies, it wins nearly 5% of all of the matches it is used in, making it a great gun to use before the end of the original Warzone.

Volkssturmgewehr Loadout

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Krausnick 428mm 05V
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Grip
  • Stock: Residorf 22V Adjustable
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 45 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Perk 1: Perfectionist
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

This loadout focuses on making the Volkssturmgewehr into more of a sniper support weapon, meaning that this gun excels in close-quarter fights. While the idea of additional recoil might turn some players away from this loadout, mastering the kickback and learning the recoil patterns is necessary for seeing results with this weapon.

While the end of Warzone is close, seeing players expand their gun pool before Warzone 2 is rewarding to see as players are beginning to see the power of off-meta weapons for the first time.
