Kastov 762 and Vaznev 9K

These two weapons have sat on the cusp of the meta for the past two seasons and following the most recent dose of weapon balancing, the Kastov 762 and the Vaznev 9K are excellent mid-range and close-quarters options.

The immense firepower of the Kastov 762 is a surefire way to deal plenty of mid-range damage while the Vaznev's lethal rate of fire combined with minimal recoil makes it the perfect weapon to use when getting up close and personal with the opposition.

M4 and Victus XMR

If the RPK doesn't float your boat and prefer some long-range firepower, the combination of the M4 and Victus XMR is arguably the best to use. The M4 comes with an impressive rate of fire and plenty of customisation options perfect for mid-range combat.

Alongside the M4 is the Victus XMR sniper rifle. Although the kick is tricky to handle, the ability to take down an opponent with a single bullet from afar is hugely advantageous. Check out the best Warzone 2 M4 loadout and the best Warzone 2 Victus XMR loadout in our handy guides.

For additional versatility, the Lachmann Sub brings some much-needed close-range performance which comes in handy when a player suddenly appears.
