The Armaguerra 43 submachine gun (SMG) will arrive to Warzone as part of the Season 2.5 update. With the current close-range metagame remaining stable following an accidental buff to Vanguard's PPSH, there are only a few options capable of excelling in close quarters combat.
Described as a weapon of "prototypical nature," the Armaguerra 43 resembles an SMG that would feature beyond the confines of World War II. In addition to its compact design, the weapon appears to lend itself towards plenty of customisation opportunities designed to improve various elements of the weapon.
With that said, there's a strong possibility of the Armaguerra 43 influencing the current metagame as players look for the best SMG to use on Caldera and Rebirth Island. In this guide, find the best Armaguerra 43 loadout along with the strongest attachment combination to make an impact during a match.

|Barrel||Botti 315mm CII|

How to Unlock Armaguerra 43
According to the Call of Duty blog, there are two ways to unlock the SMG for use in Warzone. The first is by completing an "SMG-based" challenge. Details on the challenge haven't appeared yet but as soon as they do, we will update the guide with how to complete it as fast as possible.
In addition to the challenge, players can get their hands on the Armaguerra 43 by purchasing a store bundle.
Best Armaguerra 43 Warzone Attachments
After spending a few matches ranking up the Armaguerra 43, we've discovered a set of attachments that fully utilises the SMG's incredible rate of fire.
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Botti 315mm CII
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: Imerito SA Folding
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 8mm Kurz 72 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Hollow Point
- Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
- Perk: Hardscope
- Perk 2: Quick
This build maximises fire rate to levels that are incredibly difficult to beat. The Hand Stop and Hardscope Perk lower the recoil to levels where you can deal plenty of damage at longer distances.
As always, a huge magazine is key in order to eliminate multiple enemies without the need to dip out of the action and reload. Overall, the Armaguerra 43 is deadly in close-quarters combat and makes the ideal secondary weapon alongside an assault rifle.
Best Armaguerra 43 Warzone Perks and Equipment
Once the best set of attachments are equipped to the Armaguerra 43, it's essential to pick the best Perks and Equipment to extend your advantage even further. Check out the best Perks and Equipment to use alongside the SMG below.
- EOD (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Amped (Perk 3)
Despite the addition of new Perks in previous seasons, this particular combination still stands strong. EOD increases resistance to explosives while Overkill gives you the ability to use two primary weapons in the same loadout.
Last and by no means least is Amped. The increase in weapon swap speed allows you to switch to the Armaguerra 43 quickly if an opponent attempts to spring a lethal surprise.
- Frag Grenade (Lethal)
- Stun Grenade (Tactical)
This might be a common combination but it's because it's arguably the best to use in Warzone. Use the Frag Grenade to deal some additional damage in a hotly contested firefight alongside the Stun Grenade to stop the opposition from escaping your sights.

Is The Armaguerra 43 Good in Warzone?
It's unclear if the Armaguerra will be a force to be reckoned with once it appears in the second half of Season 2. Its mobility shines through but compared to other SMGs that are available, there are better options to choose from. However, if you're after an alternative to the guns dominating the meta, the Armaguerra 43 is definitely worth a try
