Warzone player finds ridiculously OP camping spot in Caldera

Even though Cold War’s seasonal content is over, the devs have added the brand-new Vargo 52 Assault Rifle. It’s shaping up to be a powerful choice in Warzone Pacific’s meta, so here are the attachments and Perks to create the best Vargo 52 loadout.

Even though Black Ops Cold War’s seasons are over, Treyarch have continued to sprinkle in new content. Although delayed, the classic WMD map will be making its way over, and the new Vargo 52 has already arrived.

The Vargo 52 is an incredibly accurate Assault Rifle that’s barged its way into Warzone’s long-range meta, feeling very similar to the fan-favorite FARA 83. We’re detailing every attachment, Perk, and piece of equipment you need to create the best Vargo 52 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 2.

Best Vargo 52 Warzone loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: GRU Supressor
  • Barrel: 18.6″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd

As the Vargo 52 is a Black Ops Cold War weapon, we can use the typical Warzone build for Cold War Assault Rifles. The GRU Supressor and 18.6″ Task Force barrel combined vastly improves the Vargo’s range, making it incredibly powerful and accurate over distance.

Then, we use the Axial Arms 3x optic, which is the perfect magnification for taking on fights in both Caldera and Rebirth Island. The Spetsnaz Grip makes the weapon less bouncy as you hold the trigger, and the Spetsnaz 60 Rnd Ensures you have enough bullets to take down multiple enemies at once.

Best Warzone Vargo 52 loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: EOD
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

First, we recommend you run EOD in Warzone. Grenades and Semtex are powerful tools to start a fight, and you want to ensure they’re as ineffective as possible against you.

Next, Overkill will allow you to take another primary weapon alongside the Vargo, and we recommend the Owen Gun or MAC-10. And finally, Combat Scout is perfect for tracking players through Caldera’s dense vegetation.

And alongside these Perks, we recommend the Throwing Knife to quickly finish off enemies and the Stim to quickly regain health and move incredibly fast for a short time.

How to unlock Vargo 52 in Warzone

You can unlock the Vargo 52 Assault Rifle by getting 1,000 damage with Assault Rifles in 15 different matches of Warzone or Cold War multiplayer.

This will be much easier to complete in Cold War, but we recommend jumping into Plunder in Warzone, as you’ll be guaranteed your loadout Assault Rifle and can keep respawning.

Best alternatives to Warzone’s Vargo 52

There are plenty of viable alternatives to the Vargo 52 in Warzone Pacific Season 2. Even after being fixed, the Bren has remained one of the best guns in the game. The Automaton is also incredibly easy to use, so it is a great option for when you’re trying to unlock the Vargo.
