Throughout the short history of Warzone, assault rifles (AR) have ruled the roost in terms of outright performance. With a variety of weapons armed with various rates of fire and mobility levels, there's an AR to suit all styles of play on Caldera and Rebirth Island.
As part of Season 3, the battle royale will see the arrival of the Nikita AVT, the latest AR looking to slot into the ever-changing metagame. Described as an "accurate and reliable" rifle, the Nikita AVT features the fastest rate of fire out of all Vanguard rifles which could enable players to excel in mid-range engagements.
As with most weapons with a fast rate of fire, recoil is likely to cause problems when firing the Nikita AVT for a prolonged period of time making attachment selection hugely important. With that said, find the best Nikita AVT Warzone loadout along with the best attachments to select in this guide.
What Is The Best Nikita AVT Warzone Loadout?
Having tested a variety of different attachment combinations, this particular set provides improvements to recoil, damage range, and more. For the full attachment list, check out the table below.

|Stock||Empress AVT RS|

The rest of the build focuses on accuracy, with the Empress AVT RS providing much-needed stability in addition to further recoil improvements.
Best Nikita AVT Warzone Perks and Equipment
While we won't see the best attachments to use on the Nikita AVT, you can find a deadly combination of Perks and Equipment to gain further advantages during a match. Here's a set that will complement the rifle.
- EOD (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Amped (Perk 3)
EOD increases explosive resistance from any incoming explosives while Overkill allows you to carry a powerful SMG in the back pocket for close-range engagements. We recommend the MP40 from Vanguard for plenty of additional damage in scenarios where the Nikita AVT falls short.
Last but not least is Amped. The increase in weapon swap speed makes it very easy to switch between the Nikita AVT and your preferred secondary weapon, allowing you to deal with any incoming threats.
- Semtex (Lethal)
- Stim (Tactical)
Selecting Equipment is down to personal preference but we can recommend the combination of Semtex and Stim. The sticky nature of Semtex is perfect for dealing extra damage and negotiating any incoming vehicles while the Stim grants instant health regeneration in addition to a temporary speed boost that allows you to duck and dive around Caldera and Rebirth Island.
Is The Nikita AVT Good in Warzone
After using the Nikita AVT on Caldera and Rebirth Island, I can say that it's an extremely versatile assault rifle perfect for those competitive mid-range gunfights. The fast fire rate combined with its ease of control makes it very easy to deal plenty of damage over the course of a match.
In my opinion, it's certainly up towards the best ARs in the battle royale.
