With Warzone Season 4 Reloaded just taking place, players are scrambling to figure out what is a part of the new meta.
The previous rulers of the meta have been nerfed. Guns like the NZ-41, Marco and Blixen are not at the top anymore.
So what are the new guns in the new-look meta? FaZe Swagg has said he like the BOCW MP5 after its buff. The Cooper Carbine is another weapon that recently received a buff.
Well, the gun itself didn't receive a buff, but one of its attachments did instead. From the recent patch notes, the buff is for the 9mm 60 Round Drums. The buff is, "Horizontal Recoil control decreased to 11%, down from 29.5%," That's a huge change.
Warzone YouTuber, IceManIssac recently reviewed the Cooper Carbine and labeled it as a top-tier weapon. Most weapons currently use the "Lengthened" ammo, which speeds up bullet velocity. According to Issac, the "Compressed" ammo type works better for the Cooper.
The compressed ammo significantly boosts the rate of fire, "Which makes the Cooper Carbine significantly better than its adversaries," said Issac. It does add some recoil, but according to Issac, the recoil is negligible.
Here is Issac's full Cooper Carbine Build:
-Muzzle: MX Silencer
-Barrel: 22" Cooper Custom
-Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
-Stock: Cooper Custom Padded
-Magazine: 9mm 60 Round Drums
-Ammunition: Compressed Rounds
-Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
-Perk One: Tight Grip
-Perk Two: On-Hand
-Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
This loadout, accompanied by the recently buffed, 60 Round Drums and the Compressed Rounds makes the Cooper Carbine a competitor for the top AR in today's meta.
