If you want to dominate in Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2, or DMZ, you need to have the best guns with the best attachments and the best loadouts. While the meta in each of these games changes often, there are a handful of guns and loadouts that always dominate.

Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2, and DMZ use the same guns, so the best guns in one game easily transfer to being the best guns in another game. These are the best guns in the game that cover all of the bases of the combat scenarios you’ll encounter when playing any Call of Duty game mode.

While the Kastov-74u is perfect for close quarters and the M4 is versatile for mid-range, the best mid- to long-range weapon is the RPK. If you want something that is a little slower but still unbelievably powerful, the RPK is the gun for you.
