Best BAR Warzone Loadout

Following the Season 2 Reloaded update for Warzone, numerous weapons received a wealth of buffs and nerfs in a bid to spice up the existing metagame.

The BAR is one of many assault rifles (AR) that were included in the latest dose of weapon balancing and it appears that the changes are proving popular with players. Armed with a steady rate of fire and a damage output capable of dealing with anyone at any distance, the rifle is heavily underrated on Caldera and Rebirth Island.

With that said, find the best BAR Warzone loadout along with the best BAR Warzone attachments in this guide detailing all there is to know about the AR.

As with most AR Warzone builds, the focus is on maximising damage output alongside improving levels of recoil. Considering the recoil of the BAR can be difficult to control, this set of attachments provides a great balance between performance and ease of control.

Best Warzone BAR Attachments

Upgrading the BAR for Warzone Pacific isn’t too tricky, as we emphasized working on increasing its already decent ammo count and damage, though also sacrificing a couple of things like the way it handles. Here are the attachments that will make the BAR a real force to be reckoned with.

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: CGC 30" XL
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Pistol Grip Custom
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: .50 BMG 40 Round Mag
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Equipping the .50 BMG magazine adds 40 rounds to the BAR, allowing you to score multiple eliminations without the need to dip out of the action and Everything else compliments the weapon and makes the BAR even more dangerous than it already is thanks to increases in bullet velocity and accuracy.

Best BAR Warzone Perks and Equipment

Now that we’ve made significant improvements to the BAR, we turn our attention to the rest of the loadout. Here’s the Equipment and Perks you need to make the BAR an even bigger threat in those competitive mid-range engagements.


  • EOD (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Amped (Perk 3)

Playing Call of Duty often leads to an untimely death thanks to a grenade, so having E.O.D. as your first Perk is needed for most loadouts thanks to its increase in explosive resistance.

Overkill is another Perk that many COD players deem necessary as it lets you carry another Primary Weapon with you, so make sure to pack the MP40 for some close-quarters firepower. Amped is the third Perk and ensures that you switch between both weapons as quickly as possible.


  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

The days of heartbeat sensors are long gone! The trusty combination of Frag and Stun grenades is arguably the best to use in all of Warzone. Cook the Frag to perfection to deal with any incoming opposition or vehicles and if any attempt to escape, slow their movement with the Stun for an easy kill.

Is the BAR Good in Warzone?

Considering how most assault rifles in Warzone are good-to-great, the BAR is just as good as most of them, dealing great damage and being very easy to control at longer distances. This combined with its high accuracy makes the BAR one of the stronger additions to the battle. I recommend giving it a try to see how good it is for yourself!

That's how to prepare the BAR for action in Caldera! For more Warzone loadouts, here's the Vanguard Kar98K.
