Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded has shifted the weapon meta with several significant nerfs and buffs. Previously, the Krig 6 assault rifle was on top of Warzone, featuring no recoil and lethal damage range. However, Raven Software nerfed the Krig 6, opening the door for new weapons to cement their status as the top dog in Verdansk. As of right now, it seems that two weapons, the QBZ-83 and FARA 83, are staking their claim more than others.
After some testing with various attachments and going over new stats, the QBZ and FARA are the top two contenders to take the Krig 6’s crown. According to YouTuber JGOD, the two rifles feature the most consistent stats across the board. Both weapons are tremendous at range, boast high damage and offer great mobility for an AR. But, which is the absolute best in Season 5 Reloaded?
The best weapon loadouts in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded
Essentially, the best pick for a weapon loadout in Season 5 Reloaded comes down to individual playstyle. While both the QBZ and FARA can be used to great effect, certain players will do better with one over the other.
If a player enjoys running and gunning but still wants to use an AR, the QBZ is the best option. The QBZ is a bit more mobile than the FARA and can compete with SMGs at close-range thanks to its high fire rate. However, it’s also not terrible at long-range, making it a great all-around option. It does have a little bit of recoil at range, though, which is why it’s better at close-range.
The best loadout for the QBZ-83 in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded is as follows:
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 19.5″ Ranger
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Magazine: STANAG 60 Round Drum
The next best loadout in Season 5 Reloaded is for the FARA-83. Opposite of the QBZ, the FARA excels at longer ranges thanks to its extremely low recoil. It doesn’t have the fire rate or mobility of the QBZ, though, so it shouldn’t be used like an SMG hybrid. Instead, it’s best served as a traditional rifle in Warzone. It boasts a laser-like accuracy, great damage range and moderate bullet velocity.
The best loadout for the FARA-83 in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded is as follows:
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
- Barrel: 18.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
- Magazine: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd
For players who want to be a bit more aggressive with the FARA, they can swap out the Spetsnaz Grip for a Rear Grip, like the Serpent Wrap or GRU Elastic Wrap, for extra ADS speed.
Those are the two best loadouts for Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.
