Season 4 of Warzone Pacific is finally here, adding an all-new map to the battle royale shooting game. What the Warzone Season 4 meta is will still be at the front of everyone's minds following the new update and everything that changed in the latest patch notes.

Of course, what weapons you use will be somewhat down to taste and what map you're playing on - Caldera and Fortune's Keep are quite different, after all - but there will always be some go-to options.

What Is The Warzone Season 4 Meta?

Looking over the patch notes for Season 4, a lot of weapons have been changed. However, having spent some time with Warzone since the update dropped, not all the changes have had the desired effect.

For example, the NZ-41 is still the go-to assault rifle. If anything, it seems even better than it did in Season 3, now that you don't have to use the barrel that is initially burst fire.

Elsewhere, the KG M40 and Cooper Carbine have received significant buffs, with the STG not being quite as powerful as it was before the update dropped, albeit still useful.

In terms of SMGs and sniper rifles, the meta hasn't changed a whole lot. The new SMG, the Marco 5, is good, and the Sten has seen a decent buff, but the old faithfuls are still worth picking up. The SMG meta is the widest it's been for a while.

As we said at the start of this piece, the NZ-41 is the absolute go-to for assault rifles in Warzone Season 4, and maybe the best gun of any kind in the game right now.

Following the buffs, the KG M40 and the Cooper Carbine are also viable. They're very easy-to-use weapons that pack a punch for anyone.

Best Warzone Season 4 Sniper Rifle/Marksman Rifle

The ZRG continues to be a good sniper option if you can get used to it. At this point in time, which sniper you pick from your loadout comes down to what you're comfortable with.

Since the Season 3 sniper changes, the likes of the Kar98k won't one-shot headshot, but they're still viable options if they're something you're comfortable with.

The sheer power of the HDR and AX50 continue to make them good sniper rifle options in Season 4 too.

The SMG meta has remained mostly unchanged. The likes of the Sten and Mac-10 have become more prominent, especially in Fortune's Keep, due to their close-quarters prowess, but the usual suspects remain the best options. You'll still see MP40s and Owen Guns everywhere in Season 4.

Best Warzone Season 4 LMG

Considering the power of the NZ-41, using an LMG at this point in time is somewhat redundant.

Even following nerfs, the DP27 is a good gun that benefits from a massive magazine. The new LMG, the UGM-8, seems to be powerful, but we're still working out the best loadout options for it.
