The Warzone metagame changes on a regular basis thanks to Raven Software's doses of weapon tuning. The tuning manages to maintain a somewhat level playing field but the very best players always find one particular weapon that stands out from the crowd.

With Season 2 about to reach the halfway stage, the Bren light machine gun has received a nerf leading numerous pro players and content creators to revise their loadouts.

After testing numerous replacements, several players claim Vanguard's Automaton assault rifle has become the very best gun to use in mid-range combat.

Many pro players and content creators were quick to share the same opinion as bbreadman, with NRG Esports streamer JoeWo thinking the Automaton is one of his "favourite metas."

It's not surprising to see the Automaton skyrocket in popularity. Armed with a fast rate of fire in addition to controllable recoil levels, it's very easy to score plenty of kills over the course of a match.
