The Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update is finally here! Raven Software has released its content roadmap, which includes the start of the enigmatic limited-time event called “The Numbers,” later this month. There's also a plethora of new additions, including new Warzone: Iron Trials '84 and Clash game modes, a new Operator, a new melee weapon, a Judge Dredd skin, bug fixes and, of course, weapon balance changes.
Of course, Warzone players will be looking for the best class setups to dominate their opponents in Verdansk and we have the perfect weapon to start with: the QBZ-83! This Assault Rifle is an absolute beast, especially after the Krig 6 got nerfed, making it arguably the new meta weapon to use this season. With that in mind, here is the best loadout for the QBZ-83 at the start of Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.
Best QBZ-83 loadout for Warzone Season 5 Reloaded
The previous season, the QBZ-83 was a notable competitor to the Krig 6. However, after the latest weapon balancing changes, the Krig 6 fell due to several nerfs. In particular, the maximum and minimum damage of the Krig 6 has been significantly reduced, resulting in a remarkably higher 2 headshot TTK than the QBZ-83.
The following loadout is derived from the latest iconic video from Warzone YouTuber “JGOD”.
- Muzzle: Suppressor Agency
- Baril: Ranger 16,5″
- Optical: Axial arms 3x
- Sub-barrel: Field Agent Handle
- Munition: STANAG 60 Rnd Tambour
The Agency remover is an integral accessory for all assault rifles, providing sound and flash suppression. This attachment will also reduce vertical recoil control, increase bullet speed, and increase effective damage range at the expense of ADS speed and walking stability.
The 16,5″ Ranger Cannon will further improve bullet speed and vertical recoil control. An alternative would be to use the 15,5 inch Task Force Gun for added recoil control and effective damage range.
Some players may feel that the Field Agent's HandfulSub-barrel provides negligible improvements to recoil control, in which case the Snake Grip rear handle is a notable alternative to increase ADS time. Otherwise, the Stock de Raider can be equipped for additional strafing speed, ADS fire move speed, and aiming move speed.
Finally, we opted for the Tambour STANAG 60 Rnd for extra ammo capacity and the Axial arms 3x Optics for magnification. Do not hesitate to change the optics for the one that suits you best.
You can watch JGOD's video for a more in-depth look at the latest weapon balancing changes. We have embedded the video below for your consideration.
