Call of Duty: Warzone has announced nerfs for its most popular weapons. The LMG Bren and the submachine gun MP40 have to lose their feathers. We have already presented you with suitable alternatives.

Are you currently carefully watching your killcams in Call of Duty: Warzone, 2 are currently playing the main roles there:

  • The LMG Bren for range kills
  • The MP40 submachine gun in close combat

But the developers have already announced that they will cut the airtime of the Caldera stars. Both are close to a nerf. So that you are not left completely without a suitable role double, we will show you suitable alternatives.

For the stable LMG feeling – Type 11 setup

What can Type 11 do? With the Bren, an LMG is currently at the top of the Warzone food chain. The rifle is easy to control, deals a lot of damage, and offers decent mobility for an LMG.

If you are looking for a 1:1 replacement for the Bren feel, we recommend Type 11 for post-nerf use. There is noticeable kickoff recoil on the first few shots. But the continuous fire afterward is very calm and pleasant. The MG42 is another stable LMG alternative.

CoD Warzone: Type 11 Setup

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Sakura 487mm shrouded
  • Optics: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Warubachi Weighted
  • Under barrel: m1941 hand stop
  • Magazines: 6.5mm Sakura 90 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Brace
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Assault rifle always stays cool - BAR setup

What can the BAR do? If you want to go back to the assault rifles after a Bren nerf, we recommend the BAR.

The weapon is extremely stable and easy to control due to the low rate of fire. However, this is also its biggest disadvantage - if you miss a bullet, the time-to-kill goes straight up a good bit.

CoD Warzone: BAR setup

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: CGC 30″ XL
  • Optics: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Cooper SP
  • Under barrel: m1941 hand stop
  • Magazines: .50 BMG 40 Round Mag
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The new MP you can trust – Type 100 Setup

What can Type 100 do? The MP40 is currently a very balanced MP with a large 45-round magazine at the top. A nerf is likely to hit the weapon hard because it has a number of advantages over its competitors. Nothing can keep up at the moment.

But with a nerf, the cards are reshuffled and the Type 100 has already secured a few trump cards. The MP is very easy to control and also offers respectable damage. The magazine looks a bit small, also due to the high rate of fire. On the other hand, reloading is pleasantly fast.

CoD Warzone: Type 100 setup

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Warubachi 134mm Rapid
  • Optics: monocular reflector
  • Stock: Warubachi Skeletal
  • Under barrel: m1941 hand stop
  • Magazines: 8mm Nambu 30 Round Mag
  • Ammo: Incendary
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Perk: Gun-ho
  • Perk 2: Quick
With the addition of Vanguard and all the new weapons, the weapon meta is starting to settle down. The Bren and MP40 aren't overly OP, but they're powerful enough to outperform many other guns.

It remains to be seen which way the weapon compass will point after the next balance update. But with our 3 alternatives you are well positioned as soon as the nerf brings the two flyovers Bren and MP40 back down to earth.
