Warzone 2.0: Best guns, builds, and class setups

Warzone 2.0 drops agents into the barren desert of Farm. From idyllic villages and rocky mountains to an urban city, the farm is a vast area to explore and loot.

Its sheer size also means that a lot of your battles can happen at a great distance, even if its many built-up areas still allow for plenty of close-up engagements.

And unlike other Battle Kings, you can create and access custom gear in the game if you complete the correct objectives. Here’s a look at the best guns to use in the current Warzone 2.0 meta and their ideal builds and class settings.

The Kastov 762 hits hard and has excellent range, making it one of Warzone 2.0’s top picks. It will tear through opponents at most ranges, even if they have Level 3 purple armor.

However, your battle royale design will be slightly different from what you collect for multiplayer. Range is much more important on the farm than it is on the smaller base maps, which is why you’ll want to first slap a higher zoom lens to give you an edge in those long battles.

The Schlager 3.4x optic provides a nice middle ground between close-range engagements and sniper ranges. You will be able to take on opponents who are far away, while not being completely disabled if they are just around the corner.

The Polarfire-S muzzle and KAS-10 584mm Barrel also help increase range and improve recoil, so you can easily focus your opponents further away. The Kastov 762 has more kick than most assault rifles in the game, so recoil control is crucial.

The 40 Round Mag will also come in handy when you’re up against a full team, ensuring you won’t have to reload as often.

Just like the Kastov 762, you’ll want to build your TAQ-56 to focus on increasing your damage range to help you in those long-range battles.

This is where the 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel comes in, along with the Echoless-80 muzzle. You’ll of course sacrifice some aiming speed, but that’s not the top priority here for this build.

The 60 Round Mag provides ample magazine for mowing down two to three enemies before having to reload.

Combined with attachments to help control recoil like the Tactique Brute Stock, the TAQ-56 should feel very reliable in hand even on the range.

Fennec 45

The Fennec 45 is a must-have item in your arsenal if you expect a lot of close range combat. It shreds opponents at close range with its rapid rate of fire, though you’ll need to count every bullet, even with the Fennec Mag 45 magazine attachment.

There’s no point in putting so much effort into trying to turn it into a ranged beast, and you’ll find it’s more effective to build for movement and aggression instead.

The RPK has the range and power of an LMG, while retaining some of the portability of a more traditional assault rifle.

However, this class’ setup plays toward its strengths in range while sacrificing agility. This will be a laser beam in range, but at the cost of slower aiming speed sights.

Its lower recoil and higher bullet velocity than 7.62 rounds will help you get more shots as you melt your opponents a mile away. The RAAL MG is a close competitor, but it’s tough to use.

The EBR-14 Shooting Rifle is something of a sleeper hit. It’s deadly in the right hands, and landing those headshots will see entire teams wiped off the map.

This is a mid-range gun, and the Polarfire-S suppressor and 22″ Boremaster Barrel help improve bullet velocity so you don’t have to drive shots as much. Meanwhile, the FTAC Valor Stock reduces recoil, making it easier to land consecutive shots.

If you can’t find the skulls of your opponents, the EBR-14 will require three to four body shots to kill.
