The best Call of Duty: Warzone Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle loadout

The Call of Duty: Warzone life cycle is at its end, and with that comes one final weapon meta. That means the game’s best weapons likely won’t change much anymore, giving players a clearer sense of what they should spend time leveling. Arguably the best sniper in the game right now is the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle, a weapon with a fast rate of fire, along with the ability to secure a one-hit elimination (or down) to the head at any range.

But as always, Warzone features a slew of different attachment options, making it tough to decide which ones to use. Thankfully, there’s a clear winner in this case, and here, we’ll go through the best Gorenko loadout in Warzone.

Of course, let’s first take a look at why the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle is so excellent, with details on how to use it. First, it’s important to note that this weapon is best used at range, but you aren’t restricted to only firefights from hundreds of meters away. Since this weapon’s rate of fire is so fast, you can actually treat it more like an assault rifle, giving you plenty of room for error.

According to TrueGameData, the Gorenko’s fire rate is around 111 RPM, which is nearly triple all of the best lightweight snipers in the game, including the Swiss K31 and Kar98k. In addition, the Gorenko has a competitive bullet velocity of around 1101 when using our recommended build. For best results, we advise sticking to battles at around 50 meters and beyond, though you can get away with closer-range firefights if you prioritize fast aim down sights (ADS) speeds.

Recommended loadout:

Muzzle Mercury Silencer
Barrel 420mm Empress
Optic SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
Stock Reinforced Stock
Underbarrel Bipod
Magazine 13mm AM 10 Round Mags
Ammunition FMJ Rounds
Rear grip Stippled Grip
Perk Focus
Perk 2 On-Hand

With this build, start by equipping the Mercury Silencer Muzzle, keeping you suppressed while also giving you better horizontal recoil control and bullet velocity. Remember, the faster the bullet velocity, the less you have to lead your shots. Next, use the 420mm Empress Barrel, improving your accuracy, reducing scope sway and gun bob, and offering faster ADS speed.

After that, use the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x Optic, giving you two zoom options with an accuracy boost. This Optic is great for any map since you can adjust between 3x and 6x. To improve your ADS speed, go with the Reinforced Stock next. This also boosts your initial firing recoil control, recoil recovery, and aim walking movement speed, making it easier to follow up with additional shots while moving around quickly.

Unfortunately, none of the Underbarrels are great, but the Bipod is your best bet here since it boosts your recoil control when mounted, crouched, or prone. It does hurt your ADS speed, so you can simply opt to use nothing in this slot so you aren’t penalized. Next, go with the 13mm AM 10 Round Mags, giving you plenty of ammo to take down multiple foes. Then, equip the FMJ Rounds Ammunition type to improve your bullet penetration through walls and other surfaces.

After that, we recommend using Stippled Grip Rear Grip, which boosts your recoil recovery and initial firing recoil control. For Perk 1, we recommend Focus for better flinch resistance, allowing you to stay on target while getting shot. Finally, go with On-Hand Perk 2 for faster ADS speed.

Perk 1 Quick Fix
Perk 2 Tempered
Perk 3 Amped

When it comes to Perks, we highly suggest using Quick Fix for slot 1. This immediately triggers health regeneration after you secure an elimination or when you apply an armor plate. Next, use Tempered, which gives you max armor with only two plates instead of three. Since this is a sniper, we also advise going for Amped, giving you faster weapon swap speed. You never know when someone is going to surprise you, so being able to swap weapons faster will likely save your life.

Lethal Equipment Semtex
Tactical Equipment Stims

As for Equipment, it’s best to go with Semtex Grenades, allowing you to clear out a room or deal quick damage before rushing. We also like using Stims for Tactical Equipment, which immediately grants health regeneration, even inside the gas.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III has seemingly leaked thanks to Monster
Five main characters from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.

It looks like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III will be the title of this year's Call of Duty game. Following several leaks, including an undeniable one connected to Monster Energy, a joking tweet from the official Call of Duty Twitter account appears to confirm that this is true.
Leaks suggesting that 2023's Call of Duty game is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III have existed for months, but ramped up recently. On July 17, the Call of Duty Twitter account put up tweets asking if Operators, weapons, and bundles from Modern Warfare II should carry over to this year's game and teasing that a big reveal would happen alongside the unveiling of Season 5. Later that day, Bloomberg's Jason Schreier stated that this is a Sledgehammer Games-led project that started as an expansion and morphed into a full game.
Then, Monday morning, images of Monster Energy promotional materials connected to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III emerged on Twitter, giving us confirmation of the name and our first look at the game's logo.

A leak like this is pretty difficult to deny, so Activision decided to play along with it. "Whew. Mondays," the official Call of Duty account tweeted. "Anyone have an energy drink they can spare?"
While not a traditional, explicit announcement, this tweet confirms the validity of the Monster Energy leak and affirms that this year's Call of Duty will be a direct follow-up to 2022's Modern Warfare II. Now, we'll just have to wait and see when Activision decides to officially reveal more about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III itself. 
Because it's not officially announced yet, we don't know what Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III's release date or launch platforms are. Still, it's likely that it will launch across PC, PlayStation, and Xbox sometime this October or November after Microsoft's Activision Blizzard acquisition closes.

You’re probably using the wrong close-range Warzone weapon
Call of Duty Warzone screenshot of 3 characters walking towards the camera.

Following the Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update, players have flocked to various close-range weapons, including the Lachmann Sub, the FSS Hurricane, or the ISO 45. However, these close-range weapons pale in comparison to the X13 Auto, a sidearm that has found its way to the top of the close-range meta.

The beauty of this weapon is that, not only does it take down your foes faster than any SMG in the game, but it also doesn't require the use of the Overkill perk, as it's just a sidearm. But how exactly should you build the X13 Auto? Here's a recommended loadout, which focuses on practicality up-close. Just use it while you still can, as it may not last long.
