Call of Duty: Warzone meta guide

Call of Duty Warzone is one of those games where players are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing weapons. The title presents one of the most diverse ranges of weapons among others in the same category.

However, not all firearms in Call of Duty Warzone have the ability to make it to the top tier weapons meta list. Among the many options present in the game, there are very few that have the right combination of recoil control, accuracy, and time to kill (TTK) to achieve in-game viability.

If at first you don’t get it, reformat and try again (and again) 🤖

Among the various meta-weapons dominating gunfight matchups in the game, Welgun is one such SMG that performs exceptionally well in close combat in the Call of Duty Warzone Season 4 Reloaded patch.

The Welgun is a phenomenal SMG that was added to Call of Duty Warzone with the integration of Vanguard weapons. Since its introduction, this close-range firearm has held its place in the title’s metagame.

The game’s player base loves this weapon for its excellent mobility and recoil control, making it one of the easiest meta-SMGs players can get their hands on.

The developers have not touched this weapon in the Season 4 Reloaded patch, and as such, its performance remains exceptional in the game’s close-range firefights. The most suitable configuration to obtain the maximum performance of this weapon is the following:

  • muzzle – recoil booster
  • Barrel – 320mm SA wrapped
  • optics – slate reflector
  • Values ​​- material removed
  • under the barrel – Skeleton Mark VI
  • Magazine – 7.62 Gorenko 40 round magazines
  • Ammunition – elongate
  • rear grip – patterned grip
  • Benefit 1 – Acrobatic
  • Benefit 2 – Fast

The Recoil Booster muzzle attachment improves the weapon’s rate of fire, while the 320mm SA Shrouded barrel improves muzzle velocity, ADS spread, and recoil control.

The Slate Reflector is the most basic red dot sight available for this weapon and provides a very clear line of sight even when the player is aiming down sights (ADS). The Removed attachment makes the weapon even faster by improving ADS time and movement speed while equipping this SMG.

The weapon’s recoil is already low enough that players can use the Mark VI Skeletal foregrip to regain some of the mobility and ADS time that is damaged due to using the Shrouded Barrel.

The 7.62 Gorenko 40 Round Megs is the meta magazine attachment for this weapon. Players should use this option in particular if they want to achieve the fastest possible TTK for this weapon. Along with this, the elongated ammo type will increase the initial speed of the SMG, which is pretty low by default.

The patterned rear grip will improve the recoil control of the weapon along with a slight improvement in ADS spread. When it comes to perks, both Acrobatic and Quick will increase the mobility of the weapon to some extent.

The Welgun cannot be used as a close-range primary weapon alone. It can also play the role of an excellent sniper support with some slight changes to the selection of attachments. The sniper support setup for the Welgun is as follows:

  • muzzle – recoil booster
  • Barrel – 240mm Hokenson 43
  • optics – slate reflector
  • Values ​​- SA 43M Package
  • under the barrel – M1941 hand stop
  • Magazine – .45 48 Round Magazines
  • Ammunition – Subsonic
  • rear grip – leather grip
  • Benefit 1 – Fleet
  • Benefit 2 – available

Both of these Welgun builds perform exceptionally well in the latest season of the game. Players who love to frequent Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep should definitely give this meta SMG a try in Call of Duty Warzone Season 4 Reloaded.
