Looking for the best Vargo S gear in Warzone? This is the latest assault rifle to join the Battle Royale game in the Season 4 Reloaded update, alongside the T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and T-1000 (Robert Patrick) Terminator models. The store-exclusive packs arrive alongside Titanium Trials, a set of in-game challenges for the FPS game that rewards players with Terminator-themed prizes such as the ‘Liquid Metal’ weapon camouflage.
We already know that the Warzone Vargo S Gear excels at medium to long-range engagements, according to the latest call of duty blog. The Vargo S seems to sacrifice firepower for accuracy and rate of fire, making it a deadly option when paired with the best SMGs in Warzone.
The best Call of Duty Warzone Vargo S equipment is:
- Muzzle: mercury silencer
- Barrel: Mirzoyan 414 mm custom
- Values: Custom Mirzoyan SK2
- under the barrel: M1941 hand stop
- Scope: G16 2.5x
- Magazine: Sakura 45 6.5mm Round Drums
- Ammo Type: elongate
- rear grip: patterned grip
- Perk: endoscope
- Equipment: Fully charged
For the barrel, we went with the Mercury Silencer, which improves the Vargo S’s horizontal recoil control, adds sound suppression to keep our shots off the minimap, and improves the gun’s bullet speed. Combine this with the Mirzoyan 414mm Custom, which trades some of the assault rifle’s long-range capabilities for dramatically improved mobility and recoil control.
We can go one step further by attaching the Mirzoyan Custom SK2 stock, improving our recoil control once again. Note that this stock impairs weapon movement and runs at rate of fire. To ensure the Vargo S is as accurate as possible at medium and long range, choose the M1941 Hand Stop below the barrel to improve your vertical and horizontal recoil control. We did take a hit to our hipfire accuracy with this attachment, but you should never feel this flaw in-game.
To make use of all this newfound precision, the G16 2.5x scope is perfect for taking out enemies from a distance. The Vargo S doesn’t have many useful options when it comes to magazines, but the 6.5mm Sakura 45 round drums fit our loadout surprisingly well. At the cost of movement speed, the Vargo S receives additional bullets and increased aiming speed down sights. Those extra bullets can be the difference between life and death, and it never hurts to be quick to draw against your opponents.
The Elongated ammo type is a no-brainer for most assault rifles, as it increases the bullet speed stat without any drawbacks, and the Vargo S is no exception. Similarly, Hatched Grip only brings positives to the table, improving the horizontal and vertical recoil control and recoil resistance of the weapon.
Following our trend of removing recoil, the Hardscope perk seems to be our best perk option as it improves accuracy after aiming down sights for a short time. Lastly, Fully Loaded works well for our loadout as it increases the maximum starting ammo on the Vargo S, giving us plenty of bullets to work with.
How to unlock the Vargo S in Warzone or Vanguard
You can unlock the Vargo S by completing the following in-game challenge in Warzone or Call of Duty Vanguard: Get 15 close-range kills. This challenge can be completed with any weapon – pick a small map as your Shipment and you should be able to unlock the Vargo S in a single match.
If you have a copy of Vanguard, we recommend trying the challenge in one of the multiplayer modes because while you can unlock new weapons in Warzone, the requirements tend to be more difficult, making the process longer. Alternatively, the Vargo S will be available as a store package later this season. This pack is not available when the weapon is released, so you have to complete the in-game challenge if you want it right away.
That’s all you need to unlock the Vargo S in Warzone. If you’re wondering what’s next for Warzone, you should read our Call of Duty Warzone 2 release date guide for the latest information.
