Warzone’s Cooper Carbine Has Better TTK Than Meta NZ-41 After Season 4 Changes

The rapid-fire Cooper Carbine assault rifle has long been a solid option in Warzone Season 4, but as recent buffs and nerfs are making their impact, it could have just stolen the top spot from the infamously strong NZ-41.

As has been the case with every Warzone season since its launch in 2020, certain weapons are becoming fan favorites due to in-game power and beneficial features.

In ongoing Season 4, the NZ-41 has comfortably shown itself as the top pick, with a pick rate of over 15% and in-game stats stronger than almost any other AR. The Cooper Carbine has never been neglected, but it meets well below the high bar of the NZ-41 and other true meta-guns.

However, recent enthusiasts have seen the Cooper Carbine grow stronger, while the NZ-41, due to its incredible power and popularity, has been toned down.

As a result, Warzone expert IceManIsaac believes the rapid-fire Cooper is now the better weapon, especially for Solos.

Cooper Carbine TTK Outperforms NZ-41 in Warzone Season 4

In his July 22 YouTube video, he outlined that despite the damage per magazine being higher for the NZ-41, thanks to a significantly better rate of fire, the Cooper Carbine actually kills much faster and is therefore ideal for Solos or Duos.

“If you play tight with your team,” he said, “the Cooper will have less recoil and kill faster… [for] Solos is just absolutely primo to use. ”

The NZ-41 also has a slightly better ADS rate and muzzle velocity, but due to the better recoil and rate of fire, the Cooper kills significantly faster at all ranges. As a result, Isaac thinks there’s no better weapon in Warzone’s current build for Solos or Duos.

He also detailed his recommended gear:

  • End of a loop: MX damper
  • Walk: 22″ Cooper Custom
  • Optics: SVT-40 PU scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Cooper custom quilted
  • benefit: Tight grip
  • advantage 2: at hand
  • Rear handle: polymer grip
  • Magazine: 9mm 60 round drums
  • Ammunition: extended
  • Underflow: Carver Foregrip

Depending on how confident you are, the best bet for your secondary is a sniper or an SMG. More confident players who can handle smart and therefore deal with the Cooper Carbine’s slightly slower handling stats should opt for a sniper like the HDR, but players who need a weapon designed for short ranges should opt for a pocket rocket like the Mark 5.

Come in with the Cooper Carbine as one of your weapons though, and you’ll be in a strong position from the get-go.
