The Automaton is the definition of a “laser beam”. With a high rate of fire and minimal recoil, this Automaton Warzone loadout is going to quickly become a very popular class with the masses in Call of Duty Warzone.
Although it’s early days, the Automaton is widely tipped to become a staple part of the Warzone meta and one of the most-used guns in players’ loadouts. Because it’s so easy to use, while still being deadly at most ranges, this fast-firing AR is being widely compared to previous popular Warzone guns such as the Grau.
Because of all of these factors, the Automaton was one of the main weapons that content creators were raving about after their early Warzone Pacific preview session. It certainly looks as if it could go on to be one of the best Warzone guns in Pacific Season 1. However, you can’t just run about Caldera with a base issue Automaton in hand. Oh no, you need one kitted out with all the best attachments. Plus, you need to stuff your loadout to the brim with a secondary weapon, perks, and equipment.
We’re on hand to show you what loadout guru ‘JGOD’ believes is the best Automaton Warzone loadout for Season 1.
Warzone Automaton loadout
According to JGOD, this is the best Automaton Warzone loadout for slaying in Caldera.
- Muzzle: Mercury 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: Pine Tar Grip
- Perk 1: Frenzy
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
This absolute monster of an Automaton class guarantees you decent damage at range, a decent level of magnification with the G16 optic equipped, a magazine size suitable for Warzone’s Trio or Quads modes, and best-in-class recoil control – and by that we mean literally zero recoil.
While there may be assault rifles out there with better damage profiles than the Automaton, this will likely be the AR for the masses. It’s so easy to use and can still melt opponents at almost any range.
Automaton Warzone loadout secondary
While this Automaton could probably hold its own at closer ranges, a more suitable SMG is probably a good choice as your second weapon in this loadout. The Vanguard PPSh is being touted as a potential meta-buster, and is one of your best picks for Vanguard Royale. In traditional BR lobbies, guns like the OTs 9 will likely still put in a shift despite a recent nerf.
Automaton Warzone loadout perks and equipment
With none of Vanguard’s new perks being added to Warzone, the advice on perks and equipment remains largely the same. Double Time, Overkill, and Amped is still a dependable trio of perks.
We’ll have to see how things play out with equipment, as staple picks like Stun Grenades and Heartbeat Sensors are getting nerfed. You’ll also only be tied to Vanguard equipment in Vanguard Royale playlists, so bare that in mind when creating your loadout.
As we begin to explore Caldera, what better Warzone loadout to do it with than this Automaton one.
