The Owen Gun was a somewhat forgotten submachine gun in Call of Duty: Warzone when Vanguard was first integrated. It was heavily overshadowed by the MP40, which still reigns supreme in the SMG category to this day. However, the Owen Gun has experienced a resurgence in Season 2 and is now a contender for the SMG meta. To make it compete with the MP40, though, players need to equip the Owen Gun’s absolute best loadout in Warzone.

Unlike other SMGs, the Owen Gun doesn’t have a standard stat profile. It shoots extremely slow but possesses extremely high damage and little recoil. The loadout for the Owen Gun needs to increase fire rate while also improving damage so it’s time-to-kill can keep up with guns like the MP40 and Welgun.

For a full breakdown on the Owen Gun’s best loadout in Warzone, keep reading below.

Best Owen Gun loadout in Warzone

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Hockenson 142mm Rapid
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 72 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Perk: Acrobatic
  • Perk 2: Quick

Kicking off the loadout is the Recoil Booster and Hockenson 142mm Rapid barrel, which increases the Owen Gun’s fire rate greatly. These are essential attachments for the SMG, as they help it down enemies much quicker.

Following those attachments are ones to control recoil and improve mobility. The Removed Stock and Stippled Grip improve sprint-to-fire speed while the M1941 Hand Stop and 7.62 Gorenko 72 Round Drums lower recoil. That lower recoil is put to good use with the Hollow Point Ammunition, providing a little extra damage in each shot the Owen Gun fires.

Rounding out the loadout are the perks, Acrobatic and Quick. Both help increase mobility, with both improving movement speed so players can get around the map and out-manuver enemies as easily as possible.
