Armaguerra 43 is the upcoming strongest Sub-Machine Gun in Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded. Here is an in-depth guide on how to create the perfect loadout for Armaguerra 43.
The Armaguerra 43 is the newest weapon added to Call of Duty: Vanguard’s weapon pool. It has the fastest fire rate in the S.M.G. category. It features an erratic recoil pattern that will be hard for newer players to control at the initial stage. The weapon is of Italian origin and super viable in close-range gunfights.
The Armaguerra 43 might receive a nerf in the forthcoming portion of season 2. The fire rate might get a nerf, a fast fire rate in a battle royal game might not always get the expected reaction from players. However, the weapon might find itself in a good position in the meta. With the Rebirth Island rework, the S.M.G. will surely help players dominate close range gunfights with its extremely potent fire rate.
S.M.G.s have the upper hand in close-range gunfights. Armaguerra 43, due to its bullet velocity and fire rate, is very much viable in close-range gunfights, especially in a map like Rebirth Island, where close-range gunfights await players in every corner.
How to unlock the Armaguerra 43 in CoD Warzone
The Armaguerra 43 is a part of Call of Duty: Vanguard’s weapon pool and can be unlocked by completing a simple challenge. It is similar to other S.M.G. unlock challenges.
In Multiplayer (Vanguard):
Get 10 hipfire kills in a single match 15 times.
Get 10 hipfire kills in a single match 15 times.
This challenge will be a little hard for players to complete and time-consuming. Players will need at least 12-15 matches to complete this challenge. There is no weapon restriction for this challenge, so players can use hip-fire friendly weapons to complete the challenge.
A useful tip would be to use a shotgun and finish players off with it after downing them. Players who own the Vanguard multiplayer can play Das Haus or Shipment to complete this challenge as fast as possible. However, for those who do not own the multiplayer, they can play plunder or Rebirth Island and finish players off with a shotgun as soon as they are downed.
Best Armaguerra 43 Loadout
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Imerito 550MM 03P
- Optic: Krausnick ISO 2M
- Stock: Imerito TA Skeletal
- Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
- Magazine: 9MM 60 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Taped Grip
- Perk 1: Vital
- Perk 2: Quick
Recoil buster and Standard Barrel combine to reduce the recoil and sway of the MP40 with increased damage range and fire rate with added flinch resistance. Krausnick ISO 2M is an iron sight mod that will allow the Armaguerra 43 to be effective in close-range gunfights. Taped grip provides better-aiming stability, with increased aim down sight speed, sprint to fire speed and hip fire recoil recovery.
Carver Foregrip is a must for low recoil and hip-fire builds. It helps in controlling the recoil with ease. Lengthened ammo type provides increased bullet velocity. Quick perk increases mobility, making the player light on their feet when wielding the weapon. Moreover, Vital increases the area for critical hits.
As for the magazine, the 9mm 60 Round Mags will do wonders with this gun increasing the initial ammo capacity. This loadout makes it an aggressive S.M.G. that complements rush and sniper playstyles. Armgauerra 43 will be viable in close range and very good at mid-range fights.
Best Equipment & Perks for Armaguerra 43 Loadout
- Secondary: Cooper Carbine (Vanguard) or Kar98k (Modern Warfare)
- Tactical: Stim (Modern Warfare), or Heartbeat Sensor (Modern Warfare)
- Lethal: Throwing knives (Modern Warfare), or Claymore (Modern Warfare)
- Perk – 1: Quick Fix, or E.O.D
- Perk – 2: Overkill
- Perk – 3: Amped, or Combat Scout
Quick Fix is the ideal perk for players constantly engaging in gunfights, enabling health regeneration when an enemy is killed. Opting for E.O.D. is also feasible to take less damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire.
Overkill as the second perk is a must; players can carry an extra primary weapon in the secondary slot. Pairing Cooper Carbine or Kar98k with this S.M.G. will make the loadout more potent, and the secondary will help in handling both long to mid-distance gunfights with ease. Our Cooper Carbine loadout focuses on a long-range assault rifle build.
To swap between the weapons faster, Amped is the go-to. Faster switching between weapons will help in getting an edge over other players. Combat scout briefly highlights the whole team when an enemy player is shot.
As for tactical, stim gives an instant health regeneration upon use. A heartbeat sensor can help track other players roaming nearby and plan the next gunfight strategy. Throwing knives as lethal can be a backup in a close gunfight; it has a one-shot potential on players with a minimal level of armor. Moreover, after downing a player, immediately throwing a knife will eliminate the player regardless of the range it’s thrown from. Proximity mine can be opted out for throwing knives to watch flank when stationary.

Other alternatives to Armaguerra 43 in the current meta is MP40 (Vanguard) and PPSh-41 (Vanguard). MP40 is an SMG; it is a hip-fire monster and, in the same way, also performs as a mid-range support weapon. PPSh-41 is also a solid choice with a high fire rate, and it has a very low time to kill in close-range gunfights.
