BAR Warzone loadout best attachments and class setup

The BAR is a slow-firing, hard-hitting weapon that can dominate in Warzone. Here is the best BAR loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1

BAR Warzone loadout: A WW2 assault rifle, made of both wood and metal, set against a black background

With a slow and steady rate of fire but high damage numbers, the BAR is a unique but lethal long-range beamer in Call of Duty Warzone. This iconic World War Two assault rifle may have struggled to find popularity in Vanguard multiplayer, but it’s one of the best Warzone guns for its role.

With so many wide and open spaces in the new Warzone Pacific map Caldera, it’s essential that you have a powerful long-range weapon in your loadout. With the BAR, you get just that. But you can’t just go roaming the island with a standard issue BAR – you’ve got to get to work in the Gunsmith, sonny.

Finding the right combination of attachments is key to making the BAR viable in the current Warzone meta, and we’re on hand to show you the perfect formula. While you won’t be winning any 100 metre sprints with this BAR in hand, you’ll certainly be winning your 100 metre gunfights.

BAR Warzone loadout

This is our pick for the best BAR Warzone loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1:

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: CGC 27” 2B
  • Optic: G16 2.5X
  • Stock: Cooper SP
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: .50 BMG 40 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Perk 1: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

This BAR loadout has plenty of unique attachments compared to some of its rival assault rifles. The biggest difference compared to the likes of this NZ-41 Warzone loadout is the Hardscope perk. This gives you vastly improved accuracy when you’re ADSing – and let’s be honest, we won’t be shooting from the hip with this old lump of metal, will we?

As well as this handy perk, the Cooper stock also gives loads of boosts to accuracy and control stats.

Now all of these attachments do hamper your movement speed and ADS times, but this BAR is built to pick people off at range, rather than being an agile, in-your-face AR. But the joy of a Warzone loadout is that you get to pick two monster guns, so you can definitely cover those close-range engagements with a savage SMG.

BAR Warzone loadout secondary

For your secondary weapon in this BAR Warzone loadout, we recommend picking the MP40. As the BAR only has a maximum of 40 bullets in the mag, you’ll need an SMG partner that can sport a big enough mag to ensure you always have enough ammo across your whole loadout.

Check out our MP40 Warzone loadout guide for our favourite build.

BAR Warzone loadout perks and equipment

To round out this BAR loadout, we’re gonna need some perks and equipment. For perks, we here at The Loadout have always got along with the popular trio of Double Time, Overkill, and Amped (with a switch to Ghost if you find a second loadout, of course).

For this class’ equipment, we suggest using Semtex and Stun Grenades. In Vanguard Royale, where Semtex are ineligible, swap them out for Frag Grenades.

So there it is, in all its glory: our BAR Warzone loadout for slaying opponents in Warzone Pacific Season 1. Let us know how it fairs in comparison to other strong ARs. We think you’ll get on just fine.
