Players can get their hands on the Owen Gun by reaching Level 29 in either Vanguard multiplayer or the battle royale. To unlock the SMG as quickly as possible, equip a Double XP Token to reach the level with ease.

Best Owen Gun Warzone Attachments

After testing a range of different combinations, we've utilised an Owen Gun build that improves the weapon's damage output while ensuring its high levels of mobility and control are maintained.

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Hockenson 142mm Rapid
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Gawain H4 Holding
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 60 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Perk: Steady

  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

This set of attachments is different from other SMG builds thanks to the G16 2.5x Optic to provide a crystal-clear image of the intended target. The mid-range damage of the Owen Gun means an optic with an increased zoom is essential to achieve the most success. The Lengthened Ammo Type improves bullet velocity, making it very easy to deal damage against assault rifles.

The rest of the loadout focuses on stability levels in order to make the most of this unique SMG. It can be used at closer ranges but it's best to stick with those competitive mid-range engagements where the possibility of scoring several kills is very high.

With the attachments ready to go, further benefits can be earned by selecting the best Perks and Equipment to use alongside the Owen Gun. Mobility is already high, so you can experiment with Perk selection to suit all styles of play.

Perks

  • Perk 1: EOD
  • Perk 2: Overkill

  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

It's likely that you'll come under fire from a range of grenades during your time in Caldera so we've gone with EOD for some increased explosive resistance alongside Overkill to select two primary weapons. For some long-distance firepower, we recommend pairing the Owen Gun with the Vanguard Kar98k. The third and final Perk is Combat Scout, which highlights a target that's been hit in orange, making them very easy to spot.

Equipment

  • Lethal: Molotov Cocktail

  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

Thanks to gameplay changes made by Raven Software, the Molotov Cocktail can be used to deal plenty of fiery damage to an opponent but when thrown in shallow waters, it creates a temporary smokescreen, allowing you to cross safely or to use it as improvised cover to escape a sticky situation. The Stun Grenade is still hugely useful, giving you the chance to slow an opponent before scoring the kill easily.

Is The Owen Gun Good in Warzone?

In my opinion, the Owen Gun isn't the best SMG in the entire game but it does have its place thanks to its incredible mid-range performance. It may not be viable in close-quarters engagements but at longer distances, it can make an impact against ARs.

That's how to set up the Owen Gun to dominate in Caldera! For more loadouts, check out our best NZ-41 loadout along with our best Vanguard Kar98k loadout.
