If you want to break away from the Call of Duty: Warzone meta and experiment with other weapons, there’s an underused Black Ops Cold War assault rifle that you might want to check out.
The Call of Duty: Warzone meta has been in pretty solid shape since integrating with Call of Duty: Vanguard in December, with weapons carried over from the new game as they couldn’t keep up with Modern Warfare and Black Ops decisions in the cold War.
That has since changed, with Raven Software finally allowing weapons and gear from all three titles to clash on Caldera. As a result, some older guns have regained popularity, including the Cold War XM4 and AK47.
However, some Warzone players are also experimenting with the Vargo 52 as the new assault rifle has little to no recoil and packs a fairly powerful punch too.
NRGs IceManIsaac highlighted the Cold War assault rifle in his April 5 video, noting that many players have been “fueling up” the Vargo for a while.
Though it might not have sold initially, the YouTuber stopped by. “Actually, it’s really, really good. It might even be better than the XM4,” said Isaac. “This weapon is incredible. It hits like an XM4, maybe with a little less recoil. This could be one of the most powerful weapons in the Warzone meta that people are learning about.”
He’s also not using an all-too-familiar build. The GRU Suppressor, Task Force barrel and Spetsnaz grip all get some shine, but the YouTuber opts for the Axial Arms 3x scope over the more commonly used Microflex LED.
IceManIsaac’s best Vargo 52 Warzone loadout
- Snout: GRU suppressors
- Barrel: 18.6′ Task Force
- Optics: Axial arms 3x
- underflow: Spetsnaz grip
- Magazine: 45-round magazines
As he noted, while the Vargo doesn’t have a horrendous pick rate, it’s barely used in the meta right now. acc WZRanked Statistics ranks it 20th overall when it comes to the most popular battle royale weapons.
While some players will feel more comfortable with the XM4 having had more time to get used to it, don’t be shocked if the Vargo moves up the ranks a bit in the near future.
