Best Owen Gun Loadout for Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded

Owen Gun is a versatile S.M.G with a high fire rate and damage range. Here’s an in-depth guide to creating the best Owen Gun loadout in Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded.

Assault rifles are strong and more or less dominant in a gunfight. However, S.M.G.s are more robust in many aspects. Assault Rifles can not always dominate close-range and mid-range gunfights. S.M.G.s, on the other hand, can be trusted at close to medium-range encounters. Owen Gun is a versatile S.M.G. with a high fire rate and a reasonable damage range.

The Owen Gun is a light gun with a top-loading magazine, and it is extremely easy to use while moving. The weapon is potent in close-range gunfights, especially in the new Rebirth Island map. To many players, Owen Gun is the ugliest-looking gun in the current weapon pool. But looks are deceiving when it comes to this gun. Clearing corners in Rebirth Island will be a breeze using the proper loadout.

The Owen Gun was not nerfed significantly in any updates. However, its meta attachments did get nerfed at the start of season 2. The nerfs did not affect its popularity, but Cooper Carbine and MP40 did rise over the Owen Gun because they were stronger picks for the current Warzone meta. Nonetheless, the weapon is effective when used with the proper build.

How to unlock the Owen Gun in CoD Warzone

The Owen Gun is a part of Call of Duty: Vanguard’s weapon pool. It is a Sub-Machine gun (S.M.G.), an unlockable weapon available after reaching level 29. It is part of the post-launch weapon line available to all players from day one.

The best tip for leveling up in Call of Duty: Warzone is to spend more time in-game. The experience (XP) system in Warzone is pretty straightforward. The more time you spend in-game, the more XP you will gain. Additionally, completing daily and weekly challenges will provide extra XP, which will be helpful to level it up faster. After unlocking and leveling it up quickly, players can choose from various attachments.

Best Owen Gun Loadout

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Gawain 188mm Shrouded
  • Optic: M38/Slate 2.5x Custom
  • Stock: Gawain H4 Folding
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 60 Round Drum Mag
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Acrobatic
  • Perk 2: Quick

Recoil booster and Gawain 188mm Shrouded combine to reduce the recoil and sway of the Owen Gun with increased damage range. M38/Slate 2.5x Custom is an optic sight that will allow the Owen Gun to be effective in mid-range gunfights while providing 2.5x magnification. Polymer grip provides better-aiming stability.

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, Acrobatic increases fire speed while sprinting with better hip-fire accuracy.

As for the magazine, the 8mm Kurz 60 Round Drum Mag will do wonders with this gun increasing the initial ammo capacity. With the fire rate, the weapon runs out of ammo faster while using the standard magazine that comes with the weapon. This loadout makes it an aggressive S.M.G. that complements rush and sniper playstyles. Owen Gun will be viable in mid-range and close-range gunfights.

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.

Throwing Knife (Modern Warfare)

As for tactical, stim gives an instant health regeneration upon use. The 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.

All the latest Owen Gun Buffs & Nerfs

The Owen Gun did not receive any buffs or nerfs. The current state of the weapon is balanced. The weapon might get more tweaks in future updates to compete with Armaguerra 43, the newest addition to the game. All the S.M.G.s from Call of Duty: Vanguard are different from each other. The silencer nerf did reduce its full potential. Before the nerf, it had more range. And combined with the fire rate, the gun would have become one of the strongest guns in the game.

Other Alternatives to the Owen Gun in the Current Meta

In the current meta, other alternatives to Owen Gun are 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.
