With the gunsmith system, Call of Duty: Warzone offers a wide selection of attachments for players to use on their weapons. Each attachment directly affects each gun’s stats and behavior, making them vital to optimizing weapons for each player’s personal strategy. Although each attachment offers a bonus, it is not always clear how Call of Duty: Warzone‘s guns are affected when many attachments offer the same bonuses.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War offers players stats and details for every attachment. Seeing as Call of Duty: Warzone doesn’t, a Call of Duty YouTuber has decided to experiment and find out which barrel is best for Call of Duty: Warzone loadouts. After some trial and error, he has revealed his findings in a short video.
In Call of Duty: Warzone, bullet velocity is debatably more important than the bullet’s damage. The gun’s speed can affect the lead time for ranged shots and damage thresholds on takedowns. For Call of Duty: Warzone fans, it is absolutely vital to improving their weapon’s bullet velocity for all Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War weapons.
After trying out every barrel and timing his shots, YouTuber JGOD discovered how each barrel affects each Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War weapon. He breaks his findings into multiple categories depending on the type of weapon, and he rates each barrel based on its effect on bullet velocity.
In his findings, he discovers that the following Call of Duty: Warzone attachments have the best improvements on weapons:
- Assault Rifles – Ranger Barrel
- Light Machine Gun – Calvary Barrel
- Tactical Rifles – Titanium Barrel
- Submachine Guns – Reinforced Heavy Barrel
His video fully breaks down each barrel and discusses some of the discoveries made. Although highly informative, his data collection gives a wide breakdown of each barrel showing slight differences in each. Still, his final conclusion gives a rather direct piece of advice to Call of Duty: Warzone fans.
It should be noted that all attachments are up to personal preference and customization. Call of Duty: Warzone is best played when fans create their own loadouts, but despite this, the meta still exists. Using these barrels with their assigned guns is sure to give Call of Duty: Warzone fans an edge, but the rest of the loadout is best left to either stressing bullet velocity and accuracy, or following personal preference.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
