November 1, 2022: With Season 5 Reloaded in full swing, the Marco 5 is still one of the best Warzone SMGs to use despite receiving some hefty nerfs in recent updates. Scroll down for the very best loadout.

Season 5 of Warzone is well underway and the best Marco 5 Warzone loadout is proving popular. The ever-changing metagame continues to introduce new guns into the loadouts of players.

One of three new guns that appeared in Season 4 is the Marco 5 submachine gun (SMG). With the current season reaching the halfway point, the Marco has become one of the very best Warzone SMGs to use.

Considering the recent dominance of the Owen Gun within the Season 3 meta, is there any sign of change to the best Warzone guns? With that said, find the best Marco 5 Warzone loadout along with the best attachments to use in our definitive guide.

What is the best Marco 5 Warzone loadout?

Recoil Booster

Slate Reflector
Imerito FR
Mark VI Skeletal
8mm Nambu 64 Round Drums
Ammo Type
Rear Grip
Taped Grip
Perk 1
Perk 2

Thankfully, the Marco 5 is a good SMG option at various ranges, it's not good exclusively up close and personal, although you can build it out to be better at longer distances.

It's worth noting that you can use Akimbo Marco 5s by setting it as a weapon perk. It won't be for everyone, but its high levels of accuracy allow players to excel in hectic close-range scenarios.

How to unlock Marco 5

As one of three new guns arriving in Season 4, the Marco 5 will feature as part of the new Battle Pass. The SMG is available at Tier 15. There aren't any challenges to complete to unlock it.

To unlock it as fast as possible, we recommend using a Double Battle Pass XP Token or purchasing the premium Battle Pass bundle that includes 25 Tier Skips.

Best Marco 5 Warzone attachments

As we said above, we're only beginning our time with the Marco 5, so the finally choices for best attachments are still in the works, but here are our choices right now.

Below is the best combination to use:

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Imerito 342mm 04P
  • Stock: Imerito FR
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Magazine: 8mm Nambu 64 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Proficiency: Frenzy
  • Kit: Quick

Best Marco 5 Warzone perks and equipment

Once the best Marco 5 attachments are ready to go, you can turn your attention to the best set of Perks and Equipment. Choosing the right combination can add plenty of in-game improvements. Here's what we recommend.


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

Despite the addition of new Perks, this particular combination is still incredibly strong. EOD increases your resistance to explosives while Overkill allows you to equip another primary weapon. We recommend the NZ-41 assault rifle from Vanguard.

Lastly is Amped. The increase in weapon swap speed allows you to switch between the NZ-41 and the Franchi as fast as possible meaning you can react to any kind of scenario with ease.

Is the Marco 5 good in Warzone

With Season 4 Reloaded well underway, the Marco 5 is maintaining its popularity with players thanks to its Akimbo capabilities and excellent rate of fire.

While it does excel at close-range, its damage drop-off does impact mid-range and long-distance performance so be sure to use it when up close and personal with the opposition.
