When is Rebirth Island back in Warzone Pacific? –

Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific’s most popular weapons and their attachments have been revealed, so we’re counting down the top ten loadouts as of December 16, 2021.

As is standard for Warzone, the meta is constantly changing. The Warzone Pacific update brought in almost 40 new weapons from Call of Duty: Vanguard, and also made some changes to weapons from Modern Warfare and Cold War.

This has caused a major change in certain weapon’s popularity, and thanks to, we can see Warzone Pacific Season 1’s most popular weapons. So, we’re counting down the top ten, along with the most popular attachments.

Warzone Pacific’s most popular guns & loadouts

10. M4A1 – 2.83%

One of the most reliable Assault Rifles in Warzone, it’s no surprise that Modern Warfare’s M4A1 has made it to the top ten.

While it doesn’t excel in any category, the M4A1 is a true jack of all trades. It has solid damage and range, as well as very little recoil. Whether running it as your primary Assault Rifle or alongside the best Sniper Rifles, you simply can’t go wrong with the M4A1.

Most popular M4A1 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M15 Grenadier
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

9. MAC-10 – 3.34%

Boasting an incredibly fast fire rate, rapid TTK, and next to no recoil, the MAC-10 is the obvious choice for a secondary weapon in Warzone Pacific Season 1.

When paired with a long-range Assault Rifle such as the BAR, or a Sniper like the Kar98k, the MAC-10 is the perfect pocket weapon. Even though the MAC-10 has seen a few nerfs over the past few months, it’s still held its place in the top 10 most popular.

Most popular MAC-10 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

8. Grau 5.56 – 3.42%

When Warzone was first released in March 2020, the Grau 5.56 was king. With almost no recoil and the cleanest Iron Sight the game had to offer, almost every player ran the Grau. Now in Warzone Pacific Season 1, it has avoided the nerfs that have hit other ARs and remained a popular choice.

The majority of Grau users use it as their ‘Fully Loaded’ weapon, which they can take to get full ammo when grabbing a loadout after returning from the Gulag.

Most popular Grau 5.56 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags
  • Perk: Fully Loaded

7. Cold War AK-47 – 3.75%

Cold War’s AK-47 has long been one of Warzone’s best weapons, and it’s remained among the most popular with Caldera’s arrival.

With controllable recoil and high damage, it’s well worth giving the AK another chance in Warzone Pacific. It’s not the best weapon for close-range fights, but stick to medium-long range and very few players will be able to outgun you.

Most popular Cold War AK-47 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd

6. OTs 9 – 4.41%

Although previously underrated, many players have now learned of the OTs 9’s power. Both JGOD and NICKMERCS have sung its praises in the past, and Raven has nerfed it several times.

However, these nerfs haven’t killed its popularity, with the OTs 9 still being among the most popular weapons. It did get nerfed again in the December 9 update, so it may drop off in the future. However, the OTs 9 is still an excellent choice in Caldera.

Most popular OTs 9 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 8.1″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Ammunition: VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag

5. Automaton – 4.49%

The Automaton dominated the early days of Warzone Pacific Caldera, but it was heavily nerfed on December 15.

It was so popular because it has almost zero recoil, with players not even needing to move the thumbstick to keep it shooting straight. However, the December 15 update decreased its recoil control significantly, so it will no longer be beaming enemies with ease.

It’s still in the top five most popular weapons now, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it drop in the coming days.

Most popular Automaton Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: ZAC 600mm BFA 
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Anastasia Padded
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 75 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened 
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

4. MP40 – 5.84%

If you’re looking for a Vanguard SMG to use in either regular battle royale or Vanguard Royale, the MP40 is an excellent choice.

An incredibly popular Vanguard weapon, the MP40 has already been making waves in Warzone. Its minimal recoil and solid damage make it a standout choice for close-range fights, so you won’t ever feel at a disadvantage while using it.

Most popular MP40 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: Krausnick 317mm 04B
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Krausnick 33M Folding
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: 9mm 64 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened 
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk 1: Steady
  • Perk 2: Vital

3. Swiss K31 – 5.92%

Raven Software has been hard at work fine-tuning Cold War’s Sniper Rifles in Warzone and now, they seem to have got the Swiss K31 into a great spot. Raven did decrease its flinch resistance on December 9 but then buffed it again on December 15.

Its direct counterpart is Modern Warfare’s Kar98k as they’re both quick and highly versatile snipers. Not much sets the two apart now, and some even prefer the Swiss. Its high bullet velocity means that you hardly need to lead shots, and its magazine gives it a solid reload time compared to the Kar98k.

Most popular Swiss K31 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 24.9″ Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Grip

2. STG44 – 7.75%

The STG44 acts similarly to Modern Warfare’s M4A1, being an excellent all-rounder for Caldera.

With the bloom mechanic being removed now, the STG is even more powerful. It might not be the most powerful Assault Rifle in the game but is extremely easy to control, making it effective for players of all skill levels.

Whether it will remain the second most popular weapon is yet to be seen, but it’s hard to go wrong with the STG44 in Warzone Pacific Caldera Season 1.

Most popular STG44 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: CDD 760mm 05B
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 60 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened 
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Perk 1: Vital
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

1. Modern Warfare Kar98k – 9.38%

Warzone Kar98k loadoutWarzone Kar98k loadout

If you’re looking for a fast Sniper Rifle that’s easy to use, Modern Warfare’s Kar98k is the weapon for you. Although technically a Marksman Rifle, this bolt-action WW2 rifle is arguably Warzone’s best sniper.

The Kar98k has a solid ADS speed, and with its high bullet velocity, you’ll find it much easier to use than most other Sniper Rifles. You can effectively quickscope in close-range situations, and by leading your targets, hit some nasty longshots.

The Kar98k is the better choice for controller players, as YouTuber TrueGameData discovered that it has more aim assist than the Swiss. Even though a bizarre glitch has Vanguard’s Kar98k semi-automatic, you should still use the Modern Warfare version if you’re looking to stick to the meta.

Most popular Kar98k Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″ Barrel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

If you’re yet to use any of these weapons in Caldera and Rebirth Island, give them a try with these attachments.
