In Warzone 2 Season 2, four new weapons were added to Call of Duty‘s battle royale, making the total number of weapons nearly 60. Along with these additions, Season 2 also introduced adjustments to various weapons, resulting in certain favorites emerging as the most commonly used ones.
The top weapons in Warzone 2 are typically highly effective and simple to operate. In this post we have compiled a list of the 10 most frequently selected weapons in Warzone 2 Season 2 as of March 1, 2023.
Here are the 10 most popular weapons in Warzone Season 2:
1. Lachmann Sub
In Warzone 2 Season 2, only two SMGs have managed to make it to the top ten most popular weapons list. Following a significant nerf to the Fennec, the MP5 or Lachmann Sub, a fan-favorite, has claimed not only the top SMG position but also the title of the most commonly used weapon in Warzone 2.
The MP5 has always been an easily manageable weapon in the Call of Duty franchise, and the Lachmann Sub continues this trend with its low recoil, which explains its high 15.6% pick rate. If its precision is not convincing enough, the MP5’s iconic look and sound should sway players.
Currently, the Lachmann Sub is the most popular weapon in Warzone 2. However, with the Season 2 Reloaded update set to bring about buffs and nerfs, as well as the introduction of the new Tempus Torrent weapon, we’ll have to wait and see how long it can maintain its top position.
2. ISO Hemlock
A new addition to Warzone 2 Season 2’s weapons has made it to the top picks list. The ISO Hemlock has claimed an impressive second position, next to the KV Broadside, with a 15.4% pick rate, just slightly behind the most popular weapon.
The ISO Hemlock is one of the most precise, stable, and user-friendly weapons in Warzone 2 at the moment.
3. Sakin MG38
Although the RPK has become less popular among players, this has not deterred them from trying out other LMGs. The Sakin MG38 has been the most significant gainer from the RPK’s nerf, taking over as the most frequently used LMG in Warzone 2 with a 10.2% pick rate.
Similar to the RPK, the Sakin MG38 is known for being a straightforward weapon to handle, and as an LMG in Warzone 2, it still delivers an impressive amount of damage output.
4. KV Broadside
Currently, the KV Broadside is wreaking havoc on players in Warzone 2 matches. This Shotgun is becoming infamous for its rapid-firing capabilities and outstanding Time-To-Kill (TTK), leading to a 9.7% pick rate.
The KV Broadside is particularly dominant on the Ashika Island map in Warzone 2. However, as with previous overpowered Shotguns in Warzone, the KV Broadside’s reign at the top is unlikely to last long, and an inevitable nerf is probable.
5. RAAL MG
With a current pick rate of 6.7%, the RAAL MG has rapidly ascended the ranks in Warzone 2. Although it has yet to attain the same popularity as the top four weapons, if it continues to establish itself as a dependable option, its usage could increase even more before Season 2 concludes.
Players in Warzone 2 have a fondness for using LMGs on the Al Mazrah map, which is why the RAAL MG has been receiving a lot of attention.
Classic weapons remain popular in Warzone 2, and the TAQ-56, also known as Scar-L, holds the sixth position on the list. It’s regarded as the top Assault Rifle in the game, and its popularity among players is evident with a pick rate of 5.0%.
The TAQ-56 stands out for its unique iron sight that enables players to use it for medium-range encounters. Moreover, it has minimal recoil and can be equipped with an optic for long-range shots, making it a versatile weapon in Warzone 2.
The RPK has experienced the most significant decrease in usage of any weapon on this list. It had an average pick rate of approximately 20% during Season 1 but plummeted to a 4.9% pick rate following a nerf in Season 2.
The RPK was nerfed twice during Season 2, with the second nerf on February 24 dealing the final blow to its status as a top weapon in Warzone 2. It remains to be seen how much further its popularity will decrease as Season 2 Reloaded approaches.
The Vaznev-9K SMG has become a popular choice in Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play and Warzone 2 due to its high damage output and mobility, offering a balance between SMGs and Assault Rifles. Although it may not be ideal for long-range combat, its effectiveness as a support weapon for Snipers on Al Mazrah has earned it a 3.2% pick rate
9. Kastov 762
In Warzone 2, the Kastov 762 has a similar appearance and feel to the iconic AK-47. In Season 2, weapons that evoke feelings of nostalgia among players are understandably popular. Nevertheless, the Kastov 762’s popularity is not solely due to nostalgia as its 3.0% pick rate at the ninth spot is supported by its power and effectiveness.
Even though the Kastov 762 may not be the simplest weapon to manage, it is undoubtedly one of the most potent assault rifles accessible in the game.
10 . Signal 50
Initially, the Signal 50 Sniper Rifle had a sluggish start in terms of popularity in Warzone 2, but it has managed to enter the top ten most utilized weapons with a 2.5% pick rate, establishing itself as the most favored Sniper Rifle in the game. This accomplishment speaks to the weapon’s consistency and reliability.
It will be intriguing to observe how the forthcoming one-shot kill Sniper Rifle mode in Warzone 2 will influence the Sniper selection rates. Despite its weighty feel, the Signal 50’s impressive fire rate, range, and damage output are currently unparalleled.
