Best Warzone loadout drop: the top class setups for Season Three

Forget looting in Warzone, the best way to win is to create a specific Warzone loadout beforehand

Looking for the best Warzone loadout to secure the win in Call of Duty’s battle royale? Warzone has been out for a while, and it’s clear that the best way to secure a win is to create a custom Warzone loadout drop and grab it in-match via the Warzone Buy Stations and regular drops.

In case you’re new to Call of Duty: Warzone and are just getting to grips with some of its curious additions – like the Gulag respawn mechanic – then loadout drops are a way of using your create-a-class setups from multiplayer in Warzone. Purchasing one of these will let you drop in your very own custom loadout almost instantaneously, meaning you can go from having a couple of common rarity weapons and some tactical gear to boasting two custom primary weapons of your choice, your favourite equipment, and even perks.

However, weapon balancing is very different in Warzone than it is in multiplayer, and your choice of perks, gadgets, and primaries will not translate perfectly to Warzone’s demands. We’ve earned plenty of wins and are pretty confident that we have the best loadout for Warzone to help you secure your first W, no matter how you prefer to play.

Warzone Season 3 is here, introducing massive balance changes to the game to finally end Season 2’s burst fire meta. The devs targeted the M16, Cold War AUG, and FFAR 1, forcing players to adjust their loadouts. It’s still early days, but we already have a rough idea of what the ideal Warzone loadouts look like.

We haven’t included any information about perks and equipment because most players tend to use the same setup: EOD, Overkill, and Amped along with C4 and a Heartbeat Sensor.

Best Warzone loadout

Here are the best Warzone loadout drops from the best Warzone guns and attachments, to equipment and perks:

  • CR-56 AMAX & Fara 83
  • Kar98k & Sykov
  • Krig 6 & LC10
  • Grau & Mac-10
  • CW AK47 & Bullfrog
  • RAM & Kar98k
  • LW3 Tundra & FFAR
  • Pelington 706 & Bullfrog
  • AS VAL & FAL
  • Swiss K31 & Diamatti

CR-56 AMAX AND FARA 83 WARZONE LOADOUT DROP

After nerfing all of the popular guns in Warzone, the devs warned the CR-56 AMAX could be next on the list if it continues to dominate. We recommend using this assault rifle while it’s still overpowered because it will certainly see a nerf in the future. The best CR-56 AMAX loadout excels at mid-range thanks to its impressive damage output.

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • XRK CR-56 Stippled Grip Tape
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

The Fara 83 was one of the weapons that received a surprise buff after its lacklustre introduction in the Season 2 Reloaded update. The best Fara 83 loadout is very similar to the FFAR before it received multiple nerfs. If you’re looking for a mobile assault rifle, the Fara 83 behaves similarly to an SMG which makes it ideal in a loadout like this.

  • Ember Sighting Point
  • Field Agent Grip
  • 16.5” Ultralight
  • Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Spetsnaz PKM Stock

This loadout is perfect for players who like to run and gun their way through Verdansk. The Fara 83 allows you to dominate at close range with its impressive accuracy coupled with 60 round magazines. We also have the lethal CR-56 AMAX to easily take down enemies from a distance.

Kar98k AND Sykov WARZONE LOADOUT DROP

Arguably the best sniper rifle in Warzone, the best Kar98k loadout is a staple of the battle royale game thanks to its quick aim down sights time and high bullet velocity. If you consider yourself to be an expert sharpshooter, you won’t find a better weapon to show off your skills. It only takes one clean headshot to down an enemy, regardless of how many armour plates they have stocked up.

  • Sniper Scope
  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Tac Laser
  • FTAC Sport Comb

Though the Akimbo Sykov was nerfed hard after the Season 3 update, the solo Sykov pistol is still a force to be reckoned with. There aren’t many pistols in the game that can be equipped with 80 round magazines and still maintain high accuracy. Check out our best Sykov loadout to get a breakdown of what makes this weapon so powerful.

  • Sorokin 140mm Auto
  • 80 Round Drums
  • VLK Prizrak
  • Heavyweight Double-Action
  • 5mW Laser

This loadout is perfect for mobile snipers, you can remain agile without having to worry about nearby enemies. The Sykov is arguably one of the best secondary weapons in the game right now – get the most out of it while you can before the gun receives a nerf.

Call of Duty Warzone Krig 6

Krig 6 AND LC10 WARZONE LOADOUT DROP

The Krig 6 received a substantial damage buff in Warzone Season 3, almost instantly becoming the go-to assault rifle. One of the few downsides to the best Krig 6 loadout is its poor mobility, but the weapon makes up for this in almost every key area. The damage output is among the best in the assault rifle class, as is the manageable recoil.

  • Agency Suppressor
  • 19.7” Ranger
  • Axial Arms 3x
  • Field Agent Grip
  • Stanag 60 Rnd

The LC10 also received a buff this season, improving the bullet velocity on this underutilised SMG. With the extra bullet velocity, the best LC10 loadout is transformed into one of the most accurate weapons in the game. When combined with 52 round magazines, you should have plenty of bullets to down several nearby enemies.

  • Agency Suppressor
  • 13.9” Task Force
  • Field Agent Grip
  • Salvo 52 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Raider Stock

We recommend this loadout to players who want the flexibility to attack enemies from great distances without having to resort to using a sniper rifle. The LC10 provides a bit of assurance if things start to get too close for comfort.

Best Grau Warzone class setup

Grau AND Mac-10 WARZONE LOADOUT DROP

Most players typically choose powerful weapons, whereas the Grau specialises in being extremely accurate. Weapons like the Grau can be just as powerful, but they require the right type of player to take advantage of the low recoil and high bullet velocity. The best Grau loadout is easy to use, making it a great weapon for any Warzone newcomers.

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 60 Round Mags
  • Tac Laser

Despite being on the receiving end of a number of nerfs, the Mac-10 continues to be a solid choice for anyone looking for a highly mobile weapon. With the best Mac-10 loadout, you can sprint past your opponents faster than they can shoot at you. Players that take advantage of this speed will typically dart around buildings, picking off unsuspecting players while they pick up nearby loot.

  • Agency Suppressor
  • 6.5” Cavalry Lancer
  • Field Agent Grip
  • STANAG 53 Rnd Drum
  • Raider Stock

Accurate players will love using this loadout as both weapons feature minimal recoil and plenty of bullets. You won’t miss the high damage output from other weapons if you can reliably aim for a headshot every time.

CW AK47 AND Bullfrog WARZONE LOADOUT DROP

The Cold War AK47 has been one of the most promising assault rifles to join Warzone since it was introduced in Season 1, but it’s very difficult to use for most people. The Season 3 update addressed this big problem by adjusting the recoil pattern, making it easier to control while firing. As a result, the best AK47 loadout can now be used to fire at enemies from a distance while maintaining its impressive damage output.

  • GRU Suppressor
  • 18.2” VDV Reinforced
  • Spetsnaz Grip
  • Bakelite 60 Rnd
  • Microflex LED

Ever wanted to try an SMG with extra large magazines? The best Bullfrog loadout takes this SMG and transforms it into a LMG. The Bullfrog is a lightweight SMG equipped with 85 round magazines, an impressive damage range, and fantastic mobility.

  • GRU Suppressor
  • 6.7” VDV Reinforced
  • Stanag 85 Rnd
  • No Stock
  • GRU 5mw Laser Sight

The Cold War AK47 pairs well with the Bullfrog as each weapon offers something completely different in the heat of battle. Sometimes you need an extra bit of accuracy that the AK47 can’t provide – this is where the Bullfrog comes in. Likewise, if your opponent has stocked up on armour plates, the AK47 will shred through them.

The RAM-7 in Call of Duty Warzone's preview menu

RAM 7 AND Kar98k WARZONE LOADOUT DROP

Missing the old FFAR 1? The RAM 7 is as close to the FFAR as you can get in terms of how the weapon feels. The mobility and accuracy are there, but the damage output is lacking. That being said, the best RAM 7 loadout is well worth using for any players looking for a great all rounder assault rifle.

  • Muzzle Brake
  • FORGE TAC Eclipse
  • Commando Foregrip
  • Tac Laser
  • 50 Round Mags

There isn’t much to say about the Kar98k that hasn’t already been said. When it comes to bolt-action sniper rifles, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better weapon.

  • Sniper Scope
  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Tac Laser
  • FTAC Sport Comb

The combination of the Ram-7 and Kar98k is similar to Season 2’s DMR-14 and Diamatti setup – using each of these weapons allows you to dominate at both short and long distances.

The LW3 Tundra sniper rifle in Call of Duty: Warzone

LW3 Tundra and FFAR Warzone loadout

Want to snipe your enemies from a distance without having to worry about any retaliation? The LW3 Tundra allows you to pick off enemies from great distances without having to account for bullet drop. Check out our best Tundra loadout to see which attachments you’ll need to build this lethal sniper rifle.

  • Wrapped Suppressor
  • 29.1” Combat Recon
  • 7 Rnd
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Royal & Kross 4x

The FFAR 1 required a number of nerfs before it was finally relegated out of the meta, but we wouldn’t be so quick to retire this assault rifle any time soon. As a sniper support weapon, the FFAR is fantastic at downing enemies at close range thanks to its high rate of fire.

  • Suppressor
  • STANAG 50 Rnd
  • Raider Stock
  • Serpent Wrap
  • Bruiser Grip

The nerfs to the FFAR made it ineffective at medium to long range, but this shouldn’t matter as you have the LW3 Tundra as cover.

Warzone Pelington 703 loadout best

Pelington 706 and Bullfrog Warzone loadout

The Cold War sniper rifle has established itself as one of the best for aggressive players thanks to its quick aim down sights speed. The Pelington 706 is unlikely to receive a nerf any time soon as it’s a well balanced weapon – your time spent learning how to use this weapon won’t go to waste… until something better comes along. Here’s a peek at our best Warzone Pelington 706 loadout.

  • 26.5” Tiger Team
  • Raider Pad
  • Infiltrator Grip
  • Fast Loader
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap

The Bullfrog is surprisingly lethal thanks to its impressive magazine size which rivals some of the best LMGs in the game. We’ve paired the Bullfrog alongside the Pelington so you can cover enemies from a distance and up close.

  • GRU Suppressor
  • 6.7” VDV Reinforced
  • Stanag 85 Rnd
  • No Stock
  • GRU 5mw Laser Sight

Use this loadout if you want the freedom of using your sniper rifle anywhere on the map, while having the flexibility to comfortably take enemies down at close range.

The AS VAL assault rifle in Call of Duty Warzone

AS VAL and FAL WARZONE LOADOUT DROP

A terrifyingly powerful close and mid-range assault rifle, the AS VAL marries precision, rate of fire, and damage to create one of the most lethal primary weapons in the game. The best AS VAL loadout has largely been ignored for the past few seasons, but it’s still a worthy weapon in the right hands. Our build leans into the close-quarters strengths of this Warzone assault rifle.

  • Merc Foregrip
  • 5mW Laser
  • VLK 105mm Sova
  • 30 Rnd
  • G.I. Mini Reflex

Speaking of ignored weapons, the best FAL loadout is an excellent long range option for players who would rather use an assault rifle instead of a sniper rifle. When it comes to TTK, if you have a fast trigger finger you should be able to eliminate armoured enemies in seconds.

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • XRK Marksman
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • 30 Round Mags
  • Merc Foregrip

The FAL’s biggest weaknesses are covered entirely by the AS VAL’s strengths. Use this loadout if you have confidence in your aiming ability, as each weapon only contains a 30 round magazine.

The Swiss K31 sniper rifle in Call of Duty Warzone's preview menu

Swiss K31 and Diamatti WARZONE LOADOUT DROP

If you’re looking for a new bolt-action sniper rifle, the Swiss K31 should do the trick. This weapon is tricky to use without the right attachments as it feels like a worse version of the Kar98k. Once you manage to unlock the last few attachments, the best Swiss loadout puts the sniper rifle right up there with the best long distance weapons in the game.

  • GRU Suppressor
  • 24.9” Combat Recon
  • Serpent Wrap
  • 7 Rnd
  • Royal & Kross 4x

The akimbo Diamatti pistols are perfect for close range combat as they can wipe out enemies in less than two seconds. A nice bonus of using the best Diamatti loadout is that you can keep the Ghost perk instead of having to switch it out for Overkill. With the Diamatti pistols equipped, you should be able to compete against enemies wielding SMGs and assault rifles.

  • SOCOM Eliminator
  • 6.5” Takedown
  • SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Salvo 30 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Akimbo

And there you have it, the best Warzone loadout drops. We’re always tinkering with more builds, so we’ll be sure to update this if we come across any more set-ups that are worth your while.
