Call of Duty Warzone Meta Season 3 has changed from seasons past. Now that Warzone Season 3 is in full swing, a lot of changes have happened from the top-down when it comes to the best of the best weapon choices for Verdansk. We've seen huge nerfs to the AUG, FFAR, and M16, bringing Warzone closer to its original launch state.

Warzone Meta Season 3: What to Expect

First and foremost, the AMAX should be the top choice of assault rifles for players looking to replace their AUG or M16. Experienced players most likely have it leveled up in full, but if you're running it for the first time check out these attachments for your at-distance powerhouse.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor (Level 66)
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440 (Level 44)
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic (Level 26)
  • Under barrel: Ranger Foregrip (Level 37)
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags (Level 31)

Next up, the LC10 may be the next top SMG. It received a slight bullet velocity increase at the launch of Season 3, while the Mac-10 received a one point maximum damage nerf. The Mac-10 is still a viable weapon, but other contenders, including the Cold War MP5, have a better chance of standing up against it. Attachment preferences for these weapons may vary depending upon your play style. The PPSh-41 already looks promising, but it hasn't been released long enough to determine whether or not it will be the next meta SMG.

Huge improvements to the Krig 6 and FARA 83 will certainly contend for meta Assault Rifle dominance. Both received huge improvements to their damage output, and the FARA received an adjustment to its recoil pattern as well. Facebook Gaming Partner and competitive Call of Duty player ZLaner checks out the updated FARA 83 in the video below, paired with his AMAX set up.

Lastly, the Kar98K and LW3 Tundra will continue to be the meta Sniper Rifles. Like the PPSh-41, the new Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle hasn't been released long enough to determine its meta value.
