Warzone YouTuber Metaphor has revealed a “secret” gear for the Owen Gun that’s perfect for dominating your opponents in Season 3 Classified Arms.
When it comes to choosing an SMG in Warzone, the majority of players lean towards the MP40 as it has been the most popular weapon in the game for several months now.
In recent weeks, however, another competitor has risen through the ranks and is considered by some to be the strongest close quarter cannon on Caldera and Rebirth Island.
This weapon is the Owen Gun, and although it got a series of nerfs in the Classified Arms patch, it has kept its stunning TTK.
Nevertheless, to get the most out of the weapon, Warzone YouTuber Metaphor and pro player WarsZ have outlined some major changes to the meta-equipment to ensure it still dominates after the update.
Meta Season 3 Owen Gun Warzone Gear
- End of a loop: Recoil booster
- Optics: slate reflector
- Stock: Deleted stock
- underflow: M1941 Handstop
- Magazine: 8mm Kurz 60 round drum
- Type of ammunition: extended
- rear handle: dotted grip
- advantage 1: Acrobatic
- advantage 2: Fast
As shown by Metaphor and WarsZ, this “secret” build for the Owen Gun was created in response to the Season 3 nerfs that hit the Hockenson 142mm Rapid, dropping its rate of fire from 19% to 16%.
Now, instead of equipping a ton, this build removes that attachment and focuses on maximizing mobility, making it a dominant force on Rebirth Island.
To make sure the Owen Gun still has a deadly TTK, the setup runs the 8mm Kurz 60 round drum that increases damage, bullet penetration, and bullet speed.
While this comes with the extra recoil, it’s well worth the setback and you’ll be using a primary AR or sniper for long-range missions anyway.
Keep in mind that this gear can take some practice to master, as the hefty kickback can make it difficult to control. However, this build is definitely worth testing in your games as it can outperform the MP40.
Finally, we recommend using the Cold War AK47 or Cooper Carbine in addition to the Owen Gun, as the SMG has a hard time taking down enemies from afar.
