war zone YouTuber JGOD Believes One Of Season 5’s New Weapons Could Be A Meta Weapon…and it may not be the weapon you expect.
Warzone Season 5 adds five new weapons, two of which are available in the Battle Pass. The EX1 assault rifle is unlocked at level 15 and level 31 unlocks the RA 225 SMG.
The RA 225 has an impressive rate of fire and fast processing capabilities. It is the perfect weapon for dealing with enemies in close quarters combat and still competes at longer distances thanks to its pinpoint accuracy.
The Season 5 update rocked the Warzone meta, beating out the Armaguerra 43 and Marco 5. While the Armaguerra 43 still holds the top spot, Warzone YouTuber JGOD believes the RA 225 has the potential to boost popularity rankings and become a top-tier SMG.
JGOD Unveils Best RA 225 Gear
In JGOD’s YouTube video on August 29, he discussed whether the new Season 5 weapons are viable and worth unlocking.
The Warzone expert argued, “The only downside to the RA 225 is the damage per magazine, and that’s regardless of which magazine you use.”
Here is the full equipment of the RA 225.
- End of a loop: Recoil booster
- barrel: Urban Fast 11″
- Optics: Slate reflector
- Stock: Moravec MB
- Underflow: Mark VI Skeletal
- Ammunition: extended
- Magazine: 9mm 55 round drum
- Rear handle: taped grip
- benefit: momentum
- advantage 2: at hand
JGOD shared an all-around RA 225 gear for trios and quads and a more consistent TTK build for solos and duos. The Recoil Booster and Urban Rapid 11″ give the versatile SMG its best possible TTK for dealing with multiple enemies at once.
Swapping into the Gorenko 39 Round Magazine gives the weapon a more consistent TTK for one-on-one firefights, but instead of 1661 damage per magazine, it only does 1148 per magazine.
The Warzone expert said, “This thing sure melts, especially with the nerfs for all the other weapons.”
Give this gear a try once you get through the Battle Pass and reach Tier 31.
