Best Vargo 52 Loadout for Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Last Stand Reloaded

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (2020) is one of the three games integrated with Call of Duty: Warzone. It recently got fresh content, including maps, skins, and new weapons. 

Treyarch’s first content drop of 2022 for CoD: Black Ops Cold War has brought a remaster of a fan-favorite multiplayer map and an all-new assault rifle, Vargo 52.

Vargo 52 is a full-auto assault rifle packing a punch with a fast fire rate and good damage at mid-range. It is one mean weapon that is effective where versatile equipment reigns. Unsurprisingly, it is a total powerhouse for Warzone and Call of Duty: Zombies.

Vargo 52 has an improved muzzle velocity and reliable handling for steady control while firing. The recoil pattern is upward and is controllable with a slight downward press, making it a strong choice for mid-range to long-range encounters. The rifle’s effective range can be enhanced further with a proper selection of attachments.

How to unlock the Vargo 52 in CoD Warzone

The Vargo 52 is a part of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s (BOCW) weapon pool and can be unlocked by completing a simple challenge.

In Multiplayer (BOCW):

Using Assault Rifles, deal 1000 damage in 15 different completed matches.

In Warzone:

Using Assault Rifles, deal 1000 damage in 15 different completed matches.

In Zombies:

Eliminate 750 enemies while using an Assault Rifle that has been Pack-a-Punched three times.

The challenge is comparatively easy to complete. A helpful tip to unlock it faster is to play the Plunder game mode in Warzone and leave after getting 12 kills. Plunder is an easier way to unlock this weapon because it has active respawn enabled. Using assault rifles from Black Ops Cold War would be safer if other assault rifles did not count towards the challenge.
