Best SMG in Call of Duty Warzone Season 4

Submachine guns are a staple in Call of Duty Warzone since they are very powerful in close-range fights.
Players usually pair SMGs with Assault Rifles for long and short-range encounters.
There are two SMGs at the top of Season 4 that are currently uncontested.

Players use submachine guns (SMG) in Call of Duty Warzone as a secondary weapon to assault rifles (AR). By making use of the Overkill perk in the game, players can pair an assault rifle and an SMG to style over their enemies. SMGs come in handy in fights that are close-ranged since assault rifles are good at medium and long-range gunfights. Caldera has undergone significant changes in Season 4 and compared to Verdansk’s large open spaces, Caldera has tightly-packed areas with unique points of interest (POI). As a result, long-range gun fights are not common and this has really caused ARs and SMGs to dominate the current meta. Since the AR and SMG combination works every time, it is important to know which is the best SMG in Call of Duty Warzone Season 4.

How many SMGs are there in Call of Duty Warzone?

There are more than thirty SMGs in Call of Duty Warzone including the newly added Armaguerra 43. They are as follows:

  • H4 Blixen

  • Armaguerra 43

With so many SMGs added to the Call of Duty Warzone since its launch back in March 2020, there are plenty of SMGs to choose from and loads of attachment combinations to suit all styles of play.

What is the best SMG in Call of Duty Warzone?

Currently, the Marco 5 SMG is considered the best SMG in Call of Duty Warzone Season 4. It has good mobility, firing rate, and damage. It has been dominating the meta since its release at the start of Warzone Season 4. The Marco 5 SMG can punish enemies at close range and works as the best secondary gun to a strong assault rifle for players.

Players can always find success with the Marco 5 even on maps like Fortune’s Keep provided they keep their gun fights at a close range. The Marco 5 SMG also has a stellar damage profile which makes it a good enough gun to pick long-range fights.

The other SMG which comes close to the Marco 5 is the H4 Blixen which has the best K/D ratio in Warzone at 1.79, according to Charlie Intel. This gun was introduced in Season 3 Reloaded and has made a mark for itself in the SMG class because of its sheer power. The stock version of H4 Blixen packs a heavy punch and players can use a good loadout to control the recoil of the SMG. Despite receiving nerfs in Season 4, the H4 Blixen continues to be a weapon of power in Call of Duty Warzone.

When you load into a game of Call of Duty Warzone, make sure to pick up a Marco 5 or a H4 Blixen to keep the flankers at bay.
