Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded is now live and so are a plethora of weapon changes. Raven Software has decided to once again alter the weapon meta with some large buffs and nerfs. Guns like the Krig 6 and Modern Warfare MP5 were taken down a few pegs, while the DMR 14 might be back to its 2020 form with its update. However, an underrated change that not many players are talking about is the buff to Groza loadouts in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.
Raven has turned the Groza into a submachine gun/assault rifle hybrid recently and the team has continued that trend in Season 5 Reloaded. The Groza didn’t receive any kind of damage range buff, but it did receive a buff to mobility. For aggressive players, this Cold War AR might just be the new go-to weapon.
Best Groza loadout in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded
The exact buff the Groza received is found in the Season 5 Reloaded patch notes. One of the Groza’s attachments was also affected by the update. The Serpent Wrap handle received a slight nerf, as Raven didn’t want to make the Groza too powerful compared to actual SMGs. However, the hybrid weapon features a loadout that matches up to SMGs at close range.
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
- Barrel: 16.5” CMV Mil-Spec
- Rear Grip: GRU Elastic Wrap
- Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd Drum
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
With the buff to sprint-to-fire time, the Groza no longer needs any Stock attachment to increase its mobility. Instead, players can use the Spetsnaz Grip to reduce the gun’s recoil for any medium or long-range engagements.
Speaking of mobility, though, the GRU Elastic Wrap improves ADS time significantly to help with close-range fights. Aside from the mobility buffs, this Groza loadout also increases damage range with the GRU Suppressor and the 16.5″ CMV Mil-Spec barrel.
For players who want the benefits of both an SMG and an AR in Warzone, this Groza loadout might be the way to go in Season 5 Reloaded.
