Top 5 SMGs in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded
The Welgun is the king of low-recoil SMG loadouts and is one of the easiest weapons to use. While it doesn’t have the same incredible mag damage as the Amraguerra, it has everything you want from an SMG: solid time to kill, low recoil, and high mobility.
Truth be told, there is very little to separate the best Vanguard SMGs in Warzone and if any of the weapons below receive nerfs, then the Welgun is sure to move up this list throughout Season 4 Reloaded.
4. Type 100
The Type 100 is a Vanguard SMG that players simply cannot ignore. During Warzone Pacific Season 3, it became the fastest killing SMG in the game, and its dominance has continued through Season 4 Reloaded.
Although the Type 100 is a bit unwieldy, you’ll find that it will win almost every close-range firefight when it’s in your hands. His main issues are that he has a relatively small mag size and fights from a distance, but he deserves his place in the top five due to his incredible damage output.
3. frame 5
The relatively new Frame 5 was made available through the Season 4 Battle Pass and managed to make it onto this list right away. He debuted in fourth place at the start of season 4 and managed to claim third place before season 5.
Although the Frame 5 features a unique Akimbo proficiency that allows players to dual wield the weapon, it is much more devastating with the ADS ability.
2. H4 Blixen
The H4 Blixen is another one of the powerful SMGs that have been released as seasonal content like Welgun, Armaguerra 43, Marco 5. The SMG competition has been fierce and Blixen held the top spot for a long time.
Unfortunately, back-to-back nerfs have seen H4 Blixen’s stock drop in Season 4 Reloaded. He used to blow the competition out of the water, but you can expect him to take a hit in the popularity of Warzone and K/D.
1. Weaponwar 43 – Best SMG in Warzone
Although Warzone’s Armaguerra 43 didn’t get much love heading into Season 4, it has now usurped Blixen for the top spot. To begin with, its versatility and ease of use are two of its main strengths.
The Warframe boasts an incredibly fast rate of fire and low recoil, making it perfect for all three Warzone maps. In addition, its sideways movement speed is devastating with the right implements.
Although these SMGs are the top five you need to run in Warzone, the meta is constantly evolving and who knows what will happen when the Warzone Pacific Season 5 update shakes up the hierarchy.
