The Double XP weekend is always long awaited by players, since CoD Black Ops Cold War weapons take longer to be upgraded to the maximum level, different from what happened with Modern Warfare content.

Without the event, players were very dependent on tokens of 15, 30 and 45 minutes and also 1 hour of benefits, which were acquired through the battle pass, free store packages and mini-events.

What is 'meta gaming' and what influence does it have on the best Warzone and Cold War weapons?

First, you need to understand how the 'meta gaming' of Warzone. The strongest weapons used in Battle Royale are classified as meta, by influencers and content creators. But the term also applies to other accessories that are considered overpowers, or above average in gameplay, such as perks (also known as advantage), tactical and lethal accessories.

For a weapon to fit this concept, several points are taken into account: the time to kill (also known as 'TTK' or time to kill, in Portuguese), cadence, damage and range. These are the main criteria for automatic weapons like most assault rifles, light machine guns and submachine guns.

In the case of shotguns, what is most taken into account is the cadence and the reload time. And with regard to snipers and tactical rifles, the goal of these weapons is usually more difficult to define because their functioning is very similar to each other.

The gaming meta indicates which are the best Warzone weapons.

How do I know the time to kill the weapons?

In the CoD menu Black Ops Cold War and Warzone you can check such information as damage, cadence, range etc. But when it comes to TTK, you unfortunately don't have that information on the weapons' x-ray. For this, you will need to take place to a well-known community website called True Game Data.

The site works as follows: You select the weapon you would like to analyze, select the accessories (or not) and then repeat the process with another weapon to make a comparison between the two and decide which one you like the most. In addition, you can use the website to analyze which accessory is good or not, clearly explaining what has the advantage and disadvantage.

O True Game Data is an extremely important site in the world of CoD. Virtually all content creators use this tool for information in their videos, lives, etc. The site usually gives a very big north for those who have doubts about which accessory to use in the best Warzone weapons.

If you have questions about how to use it, below I will leave a video where the Ogro, from the Play Like An Ogre channels, on Twitch and YouTube, makes an analysis of the MAC-10 submachine gun compared to other subs, using, throughout the video, the True Game Data tool.

One of the main content creators in the community, Ogro always analyzes and discloses which are the best Warzone weapons.

Now that you understand what a goal is, let's get down to business: weapons!

What weapons to raise in this Double XP event?

  • Weapon 1: AUG (Black Ops Cold War) - Tactical Rifle

Since the integration of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War content into Warzone, much has been said about the new tactical rifle category. This is a recent category that emerged in Season 1 of the two games, which already had a prominent moment in the game, when the FAD-14 and Type 63 weapons broke the game, until the moment that they had heavy nerfs still in the same season. However, in this mid-season of Season 2, the category has a new protagonist: AUG.

This blast weapon, has a very good cadence and is present in practically all loadouts of famous stremears. Diagnosis: It is a goal.

AUG is part of the Tactical Rifles framework, also considered one of the best Warzone weapons.

  • Weapon 2: MP5 (Black Ops Cold War) - Submachine guns

This weapon, which has a version in Modern Warfare, is the SMG with the lowest Time to Kill in the game. Because she is the younger sister of the MW MP5, she is a forgotten weapon because many people rush to think that the new version is inferior to the old one. The version of the weapon in Black Ops Cold War has a longer range and also kills faster. A major problem with this weapon is its very sharp vertical recoil. It is a great option for those who are a fan of SMGs.

MP5: One of the best Warzone weapons
  • Weapon 3: Gallo SA-12 (Black Ops Cold War) - Shotguns

For a while, in Season 4 of Modern Warfare and Warzone, shotguns were a big problem for players. The Origin-12 goal is remembered today as the most broken goal in the game, as it is a weapon with a high cadence and impressive stopping power, in addition to being a weapon that could be found in the ground loot. After the nerf of this weapon, only the R-9 with Dragon Breath ammunition stood out.

Now, in Season 2 of Cold War and Warzone, we finally have a good and balanced shotgun. The Gallo SA12 is a great option for those who want to vary their loadout a little and get away from SMGs and snipers. Negative point: it takes time to reload the ammunition.

The most balanced shotgun in the game. One of the best Warzone weapons.
  • Weapon 4: LC-10 (Black Ops Cold War) - Submachine gun

One of the weapons that arrived at the beginning of the current season, the LC-10 submachine gun is unlocked at level 31 of the battle pass. With a good range and good damage, this SMG makes a perfect marriage with those who like to fight with a sniper or an assault rifle. Despite good damage, its strong point is the range and high cadence match. It resembles the MAC-10, a weapon that arrived with season one, also in the battle pass.

  • Weapon 5: Groza (Black Ops Cold War) - Assault rifle

Along with the arrival of season one, the Groza assault rifle, famous in several shooting games, also has its prominence in CoD Warzone and Cold War. With a super high cadence, good damage and excellent TTK, the rifle, with all these features have not yet become popular in the CoD franchise games. This is due to the absurd success of the FAAC1 weapon, or FAMAS, for the intimate. FAAC1 has the same characteristics as Groza, but the TTK of the first weapon is even lower.

But why am I referring to Groza but not FAAC1? Because FAMAS is at a very high risk of being nerfed. And if that happens, Groza will be the replacement for that weapon. So enjoy the Double XP event and raise your weapon level. Negative point: The setback is 'exotic'. It has a very marked instability in relation to the direction of recoil control.

Groza: famous weapon in many shooting games. One of the best Warzone weapons.
  • Weapon 6: XM4 (Black Ops Cold War) - Assault rifle

The XM4 is a weapon very similar to the M4A1 that has existed in the game since the time of Modern Warfare. It turns out that this new version of the XM4 is a powerful weapon and a lot of people don't know it. It manages to be better than the M4A1 itself and has a TTK very close to the RAM-7, one of the best weapons in the entire game.

Light, strong and effective. That sums up what the XM4 is. It has a very good cadence, a reasonable projectile speed and good damage. If you know how to set up a good setup, you will be playing with one of the most versatile weapons in the game. Very good to use with sniper. Weak point: little reach.
