A new season of Call of Duty: Warzone means that a fresh crop of weapons will enter the meta and become community favorites.

The Warzone fan base traditionally picks a select number of weapons to use throughout the season, which usually makes up the meta. However, whether it’s from weapon balancing changes or the addition of a new weapon, fans will sometimes change what weapons they use game in and game out.

Early on in Season 5, there has been a slight shake-up in what weapons fans have been using. The website WZRanked has updated the pick rates for all weapons in Warzone, basically showing which guns are the most popular.

Today, we’ll be listing the top five weapons from that list along with their recommended loadouts. It’s entirely possible that this list changes within the next few days, though, as Raven Software likely isn’t done with weapon balancing in Season 5. Players’ tastes also change daily, so the pick rate chart will likely change often throughout this season.

5. KG M40 (4.50% pick rate)

Best KG M40 loadout in Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone - Gamepur

Despite receiving heavy nerfs in Season 5, fans have still remained on the KG M4o hype train. It might not be the top AR anymore, but it’s still a solid choice in Warzone. Perhaps, if Raven gives the KG a small buff, it could retake its spot atop the pick rates.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Krausnick 700mm 01V
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Krausnick 12V
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 60 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Brace
  • Perk2: Fully Loaded

4. H4 Blixen (4.51% pick rate)

The H4 Blixen’s spot on this list appears to be fluid, as other SMGs, like the PPSh-41, have skyrocketed up the charts over the early course of Season 5. Regardless of that, however, the H4 Blixen is a top SMG that excels in close-range combat.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Bergstrom 17″ F3
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Bergstrom MB
  • Underbarrel: SG98 Compact
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Perk 1: Fleet
  • Perk 2: Quick

3. Cooper Carbine (5.42% pick rate)

The Cooper Carbine is our pick for the best AR in Warzone Season 5. It’s been one of the most popular weapons in Warzone for several seasons, and that won’t change unless Raven Software applies a heavy nerf to the Vanguard rifle.

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Gracey Rapid
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Cooper Custom Padded
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 9mm 60 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Brace
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

2. Grau 5.56 (8.19% pick rate)

Perhaps the largest beneficiary of the Season 5 update was the Grau 5.56. Due to its hefty buff in the update, the Grau has ascended the pick rate charts to become the second most popular gun in Season 5. It’s one of the best rifles in Warzone, and any player that has it unlocked should give it a shot in Season 5.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 50 Round Mags

1. Armaguerra 43 (9.18% pick rate)

Is the Armaguerra 43 SMG worth using in COD Warzone?

The Armaguerra 43’s spot on this list proves that just because a weapon gets nerfed, it can still be popular with fans. The Armaguerra was nerfed in Season 5 and might have even lost its spot as the best SMG — but players are still going with what they know.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Imerito 180mm Short
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Imerito TA Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: SG98 Compact
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 72 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Subsonic
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Grip
  • Perk 1: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Quick
