The MP40 is firmly in the meta for Season 1 of Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific, despite players picking the PPSh-41 from Vanguard for a time. Guns like the Cooper Carbine and Volk are the other choices to run with the MP40, giving players the ultimate combination of speed and damage. However, a new attachment for the MP40, the Incendiary Rounds, has caused it to become even stronger in Warzone Pacific Season 1.
The Incendiary rounds are an Ammo Type for the MP40 that damages enemies with fire. Each time players land a hit on an enemy, they’ll deal a small amount of fire damage. The trade-off with this extra damage is that players receive less damage range on the MP40. This has turned players off to the idea of using this Ammo Type in the past, but the Incendiary Rounds recently picked up steam as a meta attachment for the MP40.
The MP40 benefits from the Incendiary rounds in Warzone Pacific
Twitch streamer and FaZe Clan member Swagg was the first creator to bring the Incendiary Rounds into the public eye. The streamer recently began using the Ammo Type on their MP40 loadouts in Warzone Pacific and instantly dominated in matches.
Swagg found that as long as the gunfights with the MP40 are kept to closer ranges, the negative effect to damage range isn’t too noticeable. Of course, the rest of their top loadout for the MP40 helps with this as well. Players can see that specific loadout below.
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Krausnick 317mm 04B
- Stock: Removed Stock
- Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 7.62mm Gorenko 45 Round Mag
- Ammo Type: Incendiary
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk 1: Unmarked
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
With the Incendiary Rounds in place on the MP40, Swagg could kill enemies with extreme speed. This loadout allows players to mow through multiple enemies with ease, provided they hit their shots. This might cause a ripple effect and cause players to equip the Incendiary rounds on other weapons, so players might need to get used to burning after being shot.
