Is the Welgun well good? That’s the question on many players’ lips in Call of Duty Warzone right now. The SMG, which was added to the battle royale’s ever-growing arsenal of weapons midway through Season 1 of Warzone Pacific, has all the hallmarks of a great close-range gun – but how does it stack up against the rest?
As it turns out, rather well. In the current Warzone meta, the Welgun (when equipped with the right attachments) boasts one of the fastest time to kill stats in its class. With a similar fire rate to previously strong SMGs like Black Ops Cold War’s LC10 and, more recently, Vanguard’s MP40, the Welgun will also feel familiar to most players and doesn’t require too much skill to be kept pointing in the right direction.
So, what is the best Welgun Warzone loadout in the game right now? Which attachments are needed to turn it into one of the best Warzone guns? And which second weapon, perks, and equipment should you be partnering it with in your loadout?
Weapon stats guru ‘JGOD’ has been crunching the numbers to make his perfect class setup, and we agree that it’s an absolute belter. Check it out.
Welgun Warzone loadout
Here is the best Welgun Warzone loadout for you to use in Warzone Pacific Season 1:
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: 120mm Gawain Short
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: No Stock
- Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 9mm 64 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Incendiary
- Rear Grip: Taped Grip
- Perk 1: Frenzy
- Perk 2: Quick
By using this combination of attachments, JGOD assures that you’ll be able to achieve a super fast time to kill – if you can effectively place your shots.
This build is definitely catered towards fast-paced and experienced players, with the No Stock attachment and the Recoil Booster all trading out recoil control for other benefits. Should you require a bit more accuracy, JGOD recommends swapping No Stock for the Gawain Skeletal.
Incendiary rounds also give you the benefit of tick damage on your opponents when you land your shots, and the Frenzy and Quick weapon perks both cater towards aggressive close-range playstyles.
Welgun Warzone loadout secondary
The Welgun will be doing all the work at close range, so you’re going to need a versatile LMG or AR to deal with all other scenarios. For our money, the Bren (despite its nerfs) and the STG44 are two great options.
Welgun Warzone loadout perks and equipment
For the perks in this Welgun class, we recommend Double Time, Overkill, and Combat Scout. Double Time and Combat Scout are the most popular perks in their respective slots right now, and Overkill is necessary to run the Welgun alongside another primary weapon.
For equipment, Throwing Knives are a great lethal option as they let you finish off opponents quickly and without wasting ammo, while Stun Grenades are handy for your tactical slot.
That’s our pick for the best Welgun Warzone loadout that you can use right now. Level up this SMG, select those ten attachments, and you’ll be shredding your way through Caldera and Rebirth Island with ease.
