Season 6 of Call of Duty: Warzone has shaken up the in-game weapon meta yet again.

Players are once again finding themselves at the mercy of Raven Software’s rebalances with the release of Season 6. Previously, the most common choice in sidearm was the Bullfrog submachine gun. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, according to content creator TrueGameData (TGD). It looks like the previous season’s favorite SMG may be in danger of being dethroned heading into Season 6.

Here’s the breakdown of the AK-47u versus the Bullfrog.

TrueGameData Reveals New AK-74u Build

According to TGD, the AK-47u, while featuring a lower fire rate, more than makes up the difference between it and the Bullfrog once properly equipped. In fact, it surpasses it, hence TGD‘s statement that the AK-47u should replace the popular choice.

Its base values already showcase a major advantage when it comes to shots landed on the neck, specifically, alongside extra damage on the head, chest, and limbs when compared to the Bullfrog. It has a superior ADS and movement speed. It also has a greatly reduced TTK which, when paired with the Spetsnaz 50 Rd, maximizes the statistical distance between the two.

Additionally, recoil isn’t a problem with the AK-47u. It has a lower vertical and horitzontal drift when fired both via the data and gameplay footage.

TGD’s loadout is as follows:

  • Grip: Speed Tape
  • Magazine: Spetsnaz 50 Rd
  • Muzzel: GRU Suppressor
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Underbarrel: Patrol Grip

Players are more than welcome to play around with the build to suit their own needs, of course. TGD does mention the gun’s iron sights and/or the addition of a scope if accuracy becomes a problem.
