The Groza Assault Rifle is a heavily underrated weapon to use in Warzone. If you're not familiar with this weapon, the Groza joined the Cold War arsenal in the Season 1 update as part of the Battle Pass.
It's a compact assault rifle that can dominate in close-quarters situations alongside excelling in mid-range combat, and with regular weapon tuning coming from Raven Software as part of Season 4 Reloaded, there's every chance it will be a part of the metagame. For those looking to try out a successful hybrid, this could be the weapon for you.
Here's the best loadout for the Groza in Warzone.
Groza Warzone Loadout
Based on the AK-74u sub-machine gun, the Groza is a fully automatic rifle that is extremely mobile and is armed with high damage output and a rapid rate of fire.
The fast fire rate and high damage output means that the rifle can easily contend with some of the quick-firing SMGs within the Warzone arsenal and thanks to its superior damage range, it’s a viable choice when in a mid-range skirmish. While the Groza thrives in close to mid-range engagements, it does fall short at longer distances where other assault rifles excel.
With some attachments equipped, the Groza can perform much better at long-distance but with so many to select in the Gunsmith, what are the best attachments to use?
How To Unlock
To unlock the Groza, kill 3 or more players without dying, using Assault Rifles, in 15 different matches. We'd recommend playing Plunder as you're more likely to run into clusters of players or even Rebirth Island Resurgence. Be sure to finish your matches otherwise the challenge progression will not count!
Groza Warzone Best Attachments
- Muzzle: KGB Eliminator
- Barrel: 16.5” CMV Mil-Spec
- Rear Grip: SASR Jungle Grip
- Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd Drum
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
This attachment combination focuses on improving damage range while keeping recoil levels down to a minimum. The combination of muzzle and underbarrel attachments drastically improve recoil levels when sustaining fire in a long-range gunfight while the choice of barrel improves outright damage and damage range.
To minimise the need to reload after every engagement, the 60-round magazine is the perfect choice to ensure you stay in the action for longer periods of time.
Groza Warzone Class: Secondary Weapon and Perks
Even though the damage output of the Groza is high, it can still take some time to deal with an oncoming vehicle which is why we have selected the RPG as our secondary weapon.
Selecting the Modern Warfare or Black Ops Cold War iterations is perfectly fine as they are both deadly when a vehicle attempts to send you on an early trip to the Gulag.
- Semtex (Lethal)
- Snapshot Grenade (Tactical)
The Semtex can be thrown faster than a frag grenade, making it the preferred choice when getting in amongst the action.
The snapshot grenade is often overlooked when it comes to selecting a piece of tactical equipment. A well-placed snapshot could potentially reveal an enemy eagerly awaiting your arrival inside a building.
- EOD (Perk 1)
- Ghost (Perk 2)
- Battle Hardened (Perk 3)
This is the go-to Perk combination for the majority of Warzone loadouts because it works so well. EOD and Battle Hardened increase your resistance to lethal and tactical equipment while Ghost keeps you hidden from any UAVs that are patrolling the skies.
