In Call of Duty Warzone, there are always a handful of high-skill assault rifles that top players and streamers gravitate towards. We’ve seen it with the AMAX and the EM2 in the past, and Vanguard’s NZ-41 may be the next such gun to dominate the competitive Warzone meta.
With a similar mag size, damage profile, and fire rate to some of the top-tier assault rifles of the past, the comparisons between them and the NZ-41 are not misplaced. The gun is a beamer in Vanguard’s multiplayer, and looks set to be just as effective on the streets, fields, lagoons, and beaches of Caldera. However, to ensure that your NZ-41 is one of the best Warzone guns out there, you’ll need to find the right combination of attachments to make it best suit the battle royale.
We’ve found what we believe to be the best NZ-41 Warzone loadout for Season 1 right now, and in this guide we’ll go over the attachments, perks, equipment, and secondary weapons you need to make a great class.
This could be one of the best Warzone loadouts to use in Warzone pacific Season 1, so give it a try, and let us know how you get on.
NZ-41 Warzone loadout
In the opinion of one of the most trusted names when it comes to class setups, ‘JGOD’ this is the best NZ-41 Warzone loadout to use right now.
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: Orbweaver 360mm BC
- Optic: G16 2.5x
- Stock: Ravenwood Padded
- Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
- Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 50 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk 1: Frenzy
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
While it’s early days yet, this powerful, high-skill NZ-41 build is standing out as one of the best long-range beamers in Warzone’s arsenal – especially after existing meta ARs like the EM2 were recently nerfed.
A standard NZ-41 is nowhere near as easy to use as, for example, a great Automaton Warzone loadout, so the main focus of these attachments is improving accuracy as much as possible. The MX Silencer muzzle, the Orbweaver barrel, the Ravenwood stock, and the Carver Foregrip all help in this department.
The Sakura magazine attachment also awards you a ridiculous +9 recoil control and accuracy. While the tradeoff is a bit of a hit to your bullet velocity, this is pretty much cancelled out by buff you get from the Lengthened ammo. We certainly approve of JGOD’s creation.
NZ-41 Warzone loadout secondary
As the long-range specialist in this loadout, you’ll be wanting an SMG or shotgun to help you out when the gunfights are a little closer. The Combat Shotgun is a likely candidate to be one of Warzone’s best shotguns. SMG-wise, the Vanguard PPSh is definitely the gun that most high-skill players are leaning towards.
You can find a great build for the rapid-firing SMG in our PPSh Warzone loadout guide.
NZ-41 Warzone loadout perks and equipment
It’s very much a case of personal preference when it comes to perks – and by now you should probably have your favourite trio of perks locked in as they’ve been pretty much the same since Warzone came out. If you’re really wanting a recommendation though, we love running Double Time, Overkill, and Amped.
For equipment, we’re sticking with a Heartbeat Sensor (despite its nerf) and Semtex.
So that’s the lowdown on a potentially devastating NZ-41 Warzone loadout. Could this be the next AMAX or EM2? Only time will tell.
