Here’s what Fifakill has to say about the top meta guns to use in season four of Warzone.

Fifakill’s Warzone season four meta loadouts

Fifakill’s picks for top weapons to use in season four right now are the DG-58 LSW LMG for long-range and the FJX Horus SMG for up-close encounters. Here are Fifakill’s detailed loadout builds for both.

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: WUDI Long Barrel
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Ammunition: 5.8×42 High Grain Rounds

The reigning long-range king retains its crown for now, according to Fifakill. The DG-58 LSW has been a popular pick for a while in Warzone, and that hasn’t changed much after the start of season four.

This loadout is pretty standard for the DG-58 LSW as many people run similar attachments. But this setup should treat you just fine on either Urzikstan or any Resurgence map.

  • Muzzle: ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider
  • Barrel: Martis Heavy Barrel
  • Ammunition: 9mm High Grain Rounds
  • Magazine: 48 Round Magazine
  • Rear Grip: LULL-9m Grip

According to Fifakill, the season three SMG the FJX Horus is the new king of close-range damage in season four. What’s important to note here, though, is that you first must equip the Martis Heavy Barrel to equip the ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider, but the rest of the loadout is pretty straightforward.

If you restrict using this SMG to up-close encounters inside buildings or when pushing up on teams to pressure them, this one will help you pick up some easy kills in Warzone.
