With the latest Warzone update not only nerfing the AUG but the FFAR too, what’s the latest weapon meta for April of 2021? We’ve put together the best loadout options to use since the latest weapon nerfs.

Of course, it’s important to remember that even though there are certain weapon metas in the game, everybody will have a different play style. A loadout option that may work for many others in Warzone, might not necessarily suit your personal style.

Latest Warzone Weapon Meta (April 2021)

So, what’s the weapon meta for April of 2021?

Many players have reverted back to the classic CR-65 AMAX which is still capable of taking down fully armoured enemies with a few shots thanks to the high damage and long-range.

Others have moved towards the M16 Three Round Burst Assault Rifle as an alternative option to the AUG Tactical Rifle.

Weapons such as the MAC-10 and Kar98k are also still extremely viable options for Warzone. Here’s a list of the latest weapons and attachments that are popular in Warzone right now.


  • Muzzle: Agency Silencer
  • Barrel: 15.9″ Strike Team
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd


  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic: VLK 3.0 Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags


  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6”
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Rear Grip: STVOL Precision Comb

These are the three weapons currently taking over Warzone in April of 2021, but of course, it’s important to take into account your own personal play style before using these classes.

The MAC-10 and FFAR are also still popular among players, even after the FFAR was nerfed it is still a perfectly viable option to use in Warzone.
