The NZ-41 has quickly emerged as one of the best options among Vanguard weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 1. In Vanguard, the NZ-41 isn’t close to being a top assault rifle due to its slow mobility and higher recoil. However, in Warzone, the NZ-41 has virtually no recoil and can kill enemies in a matter of seconds. To do that, though, players need to equip the NZ-41’s recommended loadout in Warzone Pacific.
Among the other top assault rifle options in Warzone Pacific, the NZ-41 doesn’t seem like it would be comparable. It has a slower fire rate and less mobility, which are usually not the traits players look for in their meta weapons. Thanks to the NZ-41’s recoil control and damage range, though, it instantly became a fan-favorite rifle in Season 1.
Best NZ-41 loadout in Warzone Pacific
While the NZ-41’s recoil control is already strong, players will want to equip some extra attachments on its loadout to further increase the control. These attachments, paired with some to improve damage range, will make the NZ-41 into the beast that’s currently rampaging Caldera.
- Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
- Barrel: Orbweaver 360mm BC
- Optic: G16 2.5x
- Stock: LOR Reinforced
- Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
- Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 45 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Rubber Grip
- Perk: Brace
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
For standard recoil control, the F8 Stabilizer, LOR Reinforced, Carver Foregrip, Rubber Grip and Brace are all in use. These attachments greatly help players with staying on target when firing. The Orbweaver 360mm BC also adds some extra recoil control but also reduces scope sway.
Speaking of the scope, the G16 2.5x has emerged as the best option for mid-range gunfights. Finally, the 6.5mm Sakura 45 Round Mags provide the biggest reduction in recoil, adding nine points to the recoil control stat. The magazine also adds additional fire rate and movement speed. The Lengthened Ammo Type improves bullet velocity to cap off the loadout.
