Warzone LMGs are all too often overlooked when it comes to picking out the best Warzone loadout drop. It’s not hard to see why, either. In general, they take just as long to down enemies as one of the best assault rifles in Warzone, and they have similar rates of fire and ranged effectiveness, too. However, unlike the game’s most popular weapons – the Grau and M4A1 – LMGs are very heavy and come with some of the worst aim down sight speeds, mobility, and ‘gun ready’ times in the game.
Those stats can make clearing out buildings, re-armouring, and switching weapons very difficult, and we’ve died countless times simply because we were stuck in the ‘gun ready’ animation. Thankfully, some of these issues can be fixed with the right attachments.
The changes introduced in the Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update have greatly shifted the meta. Almost every category of weapon was hit with nerfs, including LMGs. This doesn’t mean LMGs aren’t viable right now, however, you should expect slightly longer time-to-kill speeds on most weapons.
