With the great success of the battle royale Call of Duty: Warzone, it is common for doubts to arise regarding how to assemble the ideal weaponry so as not to be at a disadvantage to players more attuned to the 'meta gaming'.
And, as we know, the game has a unique feature of assembling your weapon with a huge variety of accessories that, if properly applied, can make a total difference in your gameplay. Here you will know everything, in a very didactic way, so that no doubt arises as to how to choose the best weapon Warzone.
What is 'meta gaming' and which weapon to choose?
First, you need to understand how the 'meta gaming' of Warzone. The strongest weapons used in Battle Royale are classified as target 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.
At Warzone, the goal is always very open to variations. With each season, it is common that we have to face weapons considered "broken", which are nothing more than weapons that are strong beyond normal and that urgently need a balance in order not to compromise the game experience.

How to know the best accessories?
- Step 1: The first step you will have to go to the True Game Data website and select the option “Warzone Data“, As well as in the image below:
- Step 2: After completing the first step, you will have to choose which weapon you want to consult your accessories. Weapons are divided into categories: AR: Assault Rifle, LMG: Light machine gun, SMG: Submachine gun, MR: Sniper Rifle and SR: Sniper rifle. Select your weapon, in its category, click on it and then on “next step".
- Step 3: After choosing your weapon, you will be directed to a next page, where the website will ask you to assemble your weapon, just like in the image below.
In this case, the site is entirely in English and so I will do the translation of each field so that you can know how to assemble your weapon: Muzzle: Mouth of the gun - Barrel: Weapon barrel - Laser: gun laser - Optic: Gun lens - Stock: Gun butt - underbarrel: Gun coupling - Ammunation: Weapon ammunition - Rear Grip: Gun handle and Perk: Advantage.
As you can see in the image above, all accessory names have a writing like “view table“. Click and have a summary of everything about that specific sector of the weapon. Ex: If you click on the Muzzle view table (mouth), you will know the benefits and harms of each accessory, as shown below with the KILO 141 gun:
- Step 4: After analyzing each accessory of the weapon, scrolling down the page, you will see all the accessories selected by you with their benefits and harms, along with a graph next to your DPS (Damage per second), as in the image below:
Notice how there is very detailed information for each accessory of your weapon. Important aspects such as the exact percentage of range, projectile speed, recoil etc, as well as information regarding aiming time and movement speed, things that we do not find in the game.
How do I know if my gun is the best?
Now that you know how to assemble your weapon, you have the curiosity to know if you are in fact playing with the best available, right? On the True Game Data website, it is also possible to compare weapons and you learn here too!
- Step 1: After assembling your weapon, as explained in the topic above, you can compare this weapon already assembled with one or more weapons that you believe may be better than yours. In this case, as soon as you finish assembling all the accessories, you will click on “Save and Add Another“, As in the image below:
- Step 2: After clicking on the button indicated in the previous step, you will return to that page from the beginning, where you will have to select the category and your weapon. Repeat the process with another weapon, in case you want to compare the statuses with yours. But rest assured that you will not lose the weapon you have previously assembled.
- Step 3: You have already assembled the weapon that will rival yours, right? After placing all the accessories, you will go back to the page that contains the very detailed information for each selected accessory. However, this time you will not go on “Save and Add Another“. You will click on “Save and Generate Summary ”
- Step 4: After clicking you will be taken to another graph, but this time you will be comparing your two weapons assembled by the TTK ("time to kill"). You just have to configure the comparison according to your needs. For example: In the image below, you will see that you can choose if you want to know which weapon kills faster with a shot to the head, chest, stomach or extremities of the body.
- Step 5: After configuring the conditions, the damage profile and how many armors you want, you will have to understand the graph.
The graph reading is based on the kill time, the TTK of your weapon. The side numbers indicate the time and the bottom numbers indicate the distance. So with this information, we know that the lower the weapon is, the less time it takes to kill, that is, the better it is in comparison.
In the example below, the weapons analyzed are KILO 141 (orange line) and RAM-7 (purple line). In the graph, the purple line, which represents RAM-7, has a time to kill better and lesser than KILO up to 40 meters. And the RAM-7's superiority extends to infinity.
You will also be able to choose more than two weapons, of any category, to make the comparisons. Remember that the True Game Data website will show you the weapons that kill the fastest, but always consider using the weapon that you like to use and know how to use. The goal exists and it is true, but what matters is the fun. Play with whatever you want!
