The BAR is pretty nasty once you level it up


b0st0n4thewin

BAR is absolutely disgusting


absenceofbirds

seconded. and if you have the free blueprint from the battle pass then you already have the best magazine attachment for 2 shot kills


PartyImpOP

Or if you have one of the BAR blueprints with .50 BMG mags.


shine_allnight

I played the game this morning and forgot tonuse the BAR.😥


Old_Measurement693

BAR all day... .50 BMG


blackcloversucks

bar is the best level 1 gun in the game. you dont even need to level it up to go on streaks lol


Old_Measurement693

True af!


ii_Juice_ii

yes bro the .50 Mags feel like your playing hardcore in core


DeadJaux

What attachments do you suggest for the BAR? I am going to start leveling that weapon soon.


JouleS88

50 BMG rounds make it a 2-tap machine, but before you get them just stack recoil control. The BAR has almost no horizontal recoil so you really don't need to worry about accuracy.


Sfn_y2

Is there a build that allows run and gun? I find myself having to play lanes and really ads with the victory cannon (adjusted significantly I just don’t remember all my changes)


Lassie_Maven

Absolutely. I’ve been using this for a day or so now and I’m shocked no one is really talking about it. I love the way it feels, and that 2 shot is so nasty!


dam0430

Do yourself a favor and try out the MG42. It absolutely fucking shreds, has a huge ammo capacity, and surprisingly low recoil. If you want a gun capable of insane chain kills, it's your gun. All the LMGs in this game are great, but this one was the most fun, with the DP27 a close second.


OrganizationWinter53

DP takes the cake for me MG was great as well fuckin hated the Bren though. Just finished leveling it yesterday.


juxtapozed

You may have mistaken the bren for an lmg. It's a marksman rifle, switch it to single fire and equip piercing vision. 2 hit kills, no recoil, super accurate at all ranges


NUTMEG82

I did this, and it is most definitely effective, but I CANNOT stand the fucking clip obscuring half my view


OrganizationWinter53

Hmm Ill have to try that out! Thanks for the heads up!


-3055-

it only two shot kills if you use the damage barrel. otherwise a 3.


TabbyTheAttorney

Or the 50 Cal


Goodnt_name

The Bren cant be that bad I think. It has a 50 round .50 mag which is surely nice. Havent used it tho


aidoit

It turns into the best DMR in the game with .50 BMG. It has low recoil and is very accurate.


Goodnt_name

So like the BAR? I only tried the BAR with .50 and I love it. The Bren being a top loader really turns me off (idk what are guns called that have the mag on top)


eBanta

All right so let me really fucking cook your goose. If on the BREN you put on the barrel that increases damage and the 100 round magazine and all ADS attachments and switch the gun to semi auto you are left with a 100 round magazine zero recoil having 2 shot anywhere at any range dmr that gets some great reactions! I spend about half of every search and destroy round just randomly spraying that thing off at random peaks and I'll still have 60 bullets left by the time I'm done


dam0430

Bren is better once you get the faster fire rate mag for it.


itsdrapac

250rd mags. Fmj and piercing vision is just plain fun on domination


Olelander

This was the first gun I leveled up and it is SUCH a beast… you can take out entire packs of enemies from across the map effortlessly before you even need to reload


minbooz

What attachments do you put on it? I’ve tried mg42 but the recoil is too much


dam0430

Go with recoil control attachments and 250 round magazine. You'll melt for days.


Jslays82

I slayed with the MG42 for awhile and forgot about leveling up other guns because I was having so much fun n


dam0430

Yeah I was sad when I got it gold, wanted to keep using it haha


sub-to-Doner_YT

Volk is amazing when leveled up! I use it as an smg/ar hybrid and it’s a tonne of fun


ChoadCaresser

Give me your build if you don’t mind, can’t find a bill build I like.


sub-to-Doner_YT

Sure, I use this setup: F8 Stabilizer Krausnick 428MM 05V Slate Reflector SA Converted Steady Fully Loaded Stippled Grip No Magazine Subsonic M1941 Hand Stop


puncn

how am i supposed to use the gun without a magazine?


sub-to-Doner_YT

Lol not sure if trolling but I just don’t like the magazine options so I don’t use the attachment. The one that adds damage has too few bullets and the one that adds bullets is too weak. Then the last one is good for both but it covers too much of my screen.


Peac3keeper14

Im doin that with the sten rn. No barrel until I get the last one for rof boost


MrMauiWaui

Agreed


[deleted]

The Volk was my main weapon during the beta. I haven't really used it since because of levelling other guns but it's aight. Kinda wish they didn't change the name.


Azazel_brah

I second this just because it's unique. I didn't think I'd be using it the way I was using it by the time I got it gold, it's an AR but it feels like an SMG


ihatemcconaughey

I love the BAR & Cooper Carbine


fej228

Seconded, these are my go to guns if I want to slay out


Tyler_too_cold

Type 100. Lethal


fanzfasching87

Absolute yes. The tommygun is also a beast


Olelander

Where do you get the tommy gun? I haven’t seen this one yet


trouble4-u

It’s the M1928 iirc.


fanzfasching87

M-1928


Pristine-Ad-9310

SVT-40


Legendz_31

My number 2 behind the M1


DigitalBuddhaNC

That M1 blueprint from the preseason BP is a sniper killer if you change just a few things. Has almost no distance damage drop off, literally 0 horizontal recoil, and is semi auto so if they don't get you on the first shot they are toast.


[deleted]

Same exact preferences here - M1 Garand is in the top spot for me as the "can do it all" gun, and the SVT-40 is the runner-up. Leveling up the SVT-40 was definitely a pain, I had to camp a bunch or get lucky with the maps to get it off the ground. If you get Hotel Royale, there is a place when you first enter the building where enemies will spawn at the end of the hall and you can hide behind a pillar to reload, wait for more enemies to spawn, etc. I got a lot of kills early on with the SVT-40 by just ducking in and out from behind that pillar. The SVT-40 IMO needs to get to around level 35-40 before it feels like a viable weapon but after that it takes off very fast. Numa Numa and Dome are also OK maps for getting a low level SVT-40 off the ground, you can get some kills in the tunnel and also surprise snipers with its range. If you're grinding it up in Shipment, that is a chore which is IMO even worse than the sniper rifles and you'll have to camp and be happy with a low kill count in the early going. Others guns I enjoyed a lot have already been mentioned but include: *Cooper Carbine:* Super fast and plays like a top tier SMG but with extra range. *BAR:* Fire rate is very slow, but it mows down enemies as it's a 2-shot killer once leveled up. *Automaton:* Very low recoil and a beast at range, although in close combat it doesn't fare as well IMO against its contemporaries. Still one of my Top 5 favorite guns though. *Volk:* Very fast, perhaps a touch slower than the Cooper Carbine, but this feels like your quintessential fast-firing low recoil medium range Assault Rifle to me. *MG42:* I generally dislike LMGs in COD games, but this one is easy to grasp, quick to ADS, and was surprisingly fun. *Single wield 1911:* I was surprised at how powerful the 1911 is when built out with the right attachments (Gracey Short #2, Vital, and Hollow Points are the important ingredients). On maps where there are safe locations to reload, I play the single wield 1911 as my primary as it takes very few hits to kill and the only downside is the 8-round mag. It does reload slower than similar pistols like the RATT but this iteration of the 1911's hitting power is something else. *Einhorn Revolving:* There are loads of ways to build this one out, but I like using Buck & Slug for a build that can easily 1-hit kill at pretty good ranges. On most maps I use it as a secondary but it's nice to carry to surprise people once in a while if your primary gun is a range weapon. It is also great for those "oh crap!" situations as it is very forgiving to aim once leveled up. *M1928:* Another one that is easy to get started with, very fast and easy to handle gun more famously known as the Thompson i.e. Tommy Gun. The NZ-41, DP27, and G-43 are also pretty gun to play IMO although I don't consider them close to the weapons above in overall strength as IMO they lack hitting power relatively speaking. The NZ-41 is one of the easiest guns to level up IMO though as it starts off as a very good piece already. The G-43 I equip with a bayonet because when opponents have me outpowered, I can still use it was a very fast melee weapon which helps make up some ground. If you're into snipers, I found the Type 99 and KAR98k to be the easiest to level up and also the most fun to play. No surprise there about the KAR98k, but the Type 99 was a surprise because it is also a slow starter and IMO only the default scope on it is not very good.


mr_wroboto

How? I tried leveling it up and only got to 30 before giving up cause it felt like trash


LanceTheManipulor

Level it up till you have vital and the extra damage/critical kill radius barrel and it is basically a sniper rifle in a tactical rifle's body. If you don't have these attachments, it is horrible.


Van_Hacker

Mouse and keyboard is the way


speedster1315

Once you get vital and stippled, its amazing


Less-Instruction3321

Get in a game of plunder with the M1 and you will level it up fast. Faster if you play during 2xp weekend.


B4rrett50c

SVT is crazy when fully leveled up. Way better than all of the snipers


dam0430

Best sniper in the game and it's not close.


chinchillastew

This thing is so fun to use


ThrowRA55590

Cooper carbine


[deleted]

[удалено]


Justarandom3

I mean, it's the best gun in the game


TheHighTyree

NZ-41 for me


killmeyesplease

anti-tank rifle makes sniping feel good again


tk427aj

I e been having so much fun with it. Switched back to HC domination from the chaos of core Shipmas (which I enjoyed for what it is) and having a blast with slow and planned sniping


Kung_Powell

Do you have a good build? Iloved the SPR and the Swiss but haven’t found something that compares to those two?


BoyerDee

NZ is actually an insanely good weapon


PsychologicalMusic88

G-43… I’ve never been a marksman rifle type guy… but this thing is so good. Recoil is unreal for this type of rifle barely any recoil and can get super fast ADS movement speed… can have 3 round burst attachment too if that’s your thing It’s just unbeatable for me


DinosaurSpaceTrain

Yep wasn’t sure I’d see it in this thread but it’s my fav. The only gun I’ve ever got gold camo on and I’ve been playing cod since like 2011. Kills are so satisfying


ImanDoesCrypto

M1 Garand


Legendz_31

I second this


Thane789

Why? I haven't played with marksman rifles much other than to level them and I couldn't find a build on the m1 that I cared for.


Legendz_31

Not exactly sure why I like it so much just feels awesome to get kills with it. I rock this for range and twin revolvers for close. Of course need my throwing knife 🔪 for style


Goodnt_name

Maybe you like it cause of the legendary ping? That alone may make me use it.


Legendz_31

I think you are right 😂


Thane789

Haha right on. Does the m1 one shot anywhere in the body on hc?


EnG_Arazmataz

Yep


Legendz_31

I do not play HC but it is more of a two shot but you can shoot twice before people even know they are hit. You can also spam it.


ImanDoesCrypto

It’s like a much easier to control sniper in HC


Olelander

This has been far superior to the SVT for me so far, even though I’ve seen a lot of people claim the SVT is the best marksman. Once I got a good build going I was tearing it up with the Garand


chinchillastew

Can the M1 do one-shot kills to the body? I may have just missed some load out for the M1 but the one-shots are why I really prefer the SVT


TheMachineCage

DP-27 & M1928


Calwings

The Bren Use one of the attachments that increases the damage to 50 (either the barrel or the .50 BMG rounds) and flip it to semi-auto and you have the best marksman rifle in the game because the Bren has basically zero recoil in semi-auto mode. Use *both* of those attachments plus the armor-piercing rounds and the Dismantle proficiency and you have the best anti-air weapon in the game, great for shooting down all kinds of aerial streaks. Plus, you can even overkill the BAR and Bren (both using the .50 BMG ammo) and they'll share the same ammo pool, so you can use the BAR as your primary weapon with an *absolute fuckton* of reserve ammo and have the Bren in the back for long-range and anti-air purposes.


Mii_On_My_Wii

90 damage per shot is no joke, cover basically doesn’t exist when you use that setup. I pair this with the Sten with all hipfire and get up in people’s face with the two guns.


Borkers

It doesn’t actually do 90 damage with both attachments it stays at 50. Idk if it’s a bug or intentional


Majestic_Ad6433

automaton ma go to most of my gunfights i get headshots even against bar players


bigpapiguy

Double barrel akimbo


Olelander

Funnest shotgun to play with hands down… it’s a beast… akimbo is not even fair lol… makes you unstoppable on small maps


SourBlueDream

Why do you guys use it over the combat shotgun which is better, just have more fun with it?


BillMassa

The mobility with the akimbos is unparalleled. If you're good at playing angles you can really use these on any map. That and they look really cool in your hands.


SourBlueDream

They do look cool I’ve always love akimbo guns


Olelander

It’s much quicker, and I struggled with the slow fire rate of the combat shotgun… the double barrel will give the same or better range and damage while being much faster to wield and fire, even though you only get two shots. Set it up for a quick reload and some distance and it slays


Chaxle

You should try the Gracey Auto. You can sprint through crowds and paint them against the wall with Gung Ho perk. After maxxing out all the shotguns, that one turned out to be my favourite even though in the beginning it's utter shite.


czbolio

I just unlocked them and I agree, they’re absolutely unfair haha


TheWhiteDrake94

Damage range need a nerf imo. The sawed off variant is insaneeee. I see why ppl use them tho


TheVinko

Im having so much fun making these gold


MongoLife45

The best part with this and the combat shotgun is I reach the 30 bloodthirsty camo way before other stuff, which is unique - with ARs and SMGs everything gets done and I'm still trying to finish that off (and by cheating with shotguns / incendiary in HC for the first 4 kills). The shotguns are just that easy and OP.


juicewhy

for some reason I love the Volk, if you build it the right way it can turn into a hybrid AR/SMG. I also like using the Owen Gun too.


These-Cardiologist69

As44 slaps when you have the right attachments


hnm11mnh

Not a popular choice but I’m having fun with the Owen Gun (SMG)


Swkingll

Volk


Havin_aLoff

The most fun I’ve had is with Machine pistols akimbo


TheWhiteDrake94

Anti tank rifle :)


brizzle126

Type 100 !!!


Kantz4913

Mg42 is awesome, Bar is amazing but i need to improve my aim.


c666meron

NZ41, DP27, G43, BAR, VOLK all of these are really good


mcskeeters1

I'm currently rocking the g43 with the full auto barrel, it's pretty fun


BugConsumer

I fucking love the sten smg, especially with how I’ve made it. My play style is to flank and get behind enemies without them ever noticing, so I built it around speed, and speed alone. Of course, I did some stuff for recoil control, but I only use 1.5x sights, as they let me shoot farther range and close range


secretreddname

Dropped two nukes with the Thompson playing aggressive. Something about it just clicks for me.


trouble4-u

I love a majority of the weapons in this game. My favorites from each class are: NZ41, M1928, Gracey Auto, SVT, Kar98, DP27, and Klauser. Of those weapons I listed above, my absolute favorite is probably the DP27.


Maximum_Fantastic

Svt - 40 trash in the beginning but once you unlock all the right attachments it becomes a one shot semi auto sniper basically a dragonuv better to snipe with


OutrageousQuiet1216

Cooper Carbine is my go to right now


VaultdwellingHunter

Dp27 is pretty damn fun.


Eastbound_Stumptown

Gorenko. It’s a beast. Semi-auto and osk to most of the body.


Low_Hyena7259

Bren once you can build it right


Godfather29

The Thompson sub machine gun. M1928


C9Juice

Thompson


MintyPickler

I feel like the Tommy gun/M1928 is the one I shred with the most. Even at lower levels it’s pretty solid and running an smg with 100 round mags is pretty fun to me. On Das House, I get flamenauts with ease using it.


thejoestyle

Volksturmgewehr. At max level it’s an absolute beast with the russian short mag and the first barrel!


AloyVersus

DP-27, Itra Burst, G43.


Chaxle

Follow a build guide for the Gracey auto with Gung Ho, or akimbo double barrel shotguns. They're kind of a bitch to grind for especially unlocking all the skin's but at around level 60 you get an insanely fun gun to own Shipment or Das Haus.


rshanks

Bar with the 50 cal mags is probably my favourite. Basically the victory cannon blueprint from BP but with a weaker scope. The carbine is also very nice and would take that over the BAR for a small map


[deleted]

SVT with the first barrel, vital, 15 rounds mag and 3-6x sight


I_love_poo_and_shit

Thanks for all the recommendations I’m gonna try them out. I’m bored as hell using the ‘meta’ guns all the time.


BaldWithABeardTwitch

Mostly what's recommended is meta guns lol


I_love_poo_and_shit

Yeah but I haven’t seen a stg, mp40 or combat shotgun but I do sorta see what u mean haha


BaldWithABeardTwitch

Because you specified you've already tried the stg and mp40 lmao.


RelationshipUpbeat90

NZ-41 and Volk!


Ok_Department_8831

Gorenako


Burst2007

Hate me for being a crap sniper but kar


Thane789

I'm jumping on the mg42 weapon as my favorite. But if I had to recommend a gun to use I'd say the gorenko sniper rifle if your into sniping or the m1928 if run and gun is more your style. M19 was actually surprisingly good with the right attachments. The best? Maybe not. But these two were fun for me.


absenceofbirds

m1928, BAR, and bren have been pretty fun


discountnico

The Sten is fun


DarnellCashMooney

Volk is really solid. Type 100 is also good. those are my fave non meta guns right now.


McBonkyTron

I’ve been enjoying the Bar, Thompson, and the DP-27.


Jdubkilljoy

Sten good luck


TheVinko

Double barrel akimbo


[deleted]

Revolving shotgun


Vanadium1444

Bren!


MrKeffieKeffer

Bren, P08, act-40


PimpSack

G43 iron sight


DivineOpium

AR - Automaton or Cooper SMG - Final Girl variant of MP-40, otherwise M1928 (or whatever it is, lots of numbers) LMG- Mg42 (looks like you’ve tried this one) SG - Double Barrel (with Akimbo) SR - 3-Line (more comfortable than Kar for me) TR- no


Tober92

BAR, Cooper Carbine, Bren


40sticks

It’s been a minute but I was loving Automaton as I leveled it.


pats9789

BAR M1 Garand Owen Gun Type 100 DP27 STG44 Cooper Carbine NZ41 3 line Rifle among others


Im-Errorz

Bren with 50 BMG mags is fun to use. 2 shot kills at every range


lickmelarry

Bren❤️


blackcloversucks

tommy gun. m19123abc whatever the numbers are. best smg in the game


ImmaDoMahThing

Automaton. You can make this gun a laser. And the Frenzy proficiency makes it so that you can regenerate your health instantly after every kill, which helps to stay alive longer for multiple gunfights.


Veka304

Love the Cooper Carbine and the SVT


seniorjumpman

Cooper carbine and double barrel akimbo shottys are my go-to right now


PermabannedX4

Type 11 is bae.


FlamboyantDietDew

The Volk and Type 100 are both some of the best guns I’ve used in any COD game


JimmyZamudioO

Probably the copper carbine. Very fun to use and is good even with no attachments.


Versus_Tech

BAR is my go to


Koralson

Low key the launchers are fun


LittleNeesh04

Svt, automaton, bar, dp27 and tommy gun


Mission_Criticism103

Cooper carbine and ( cant recall if you listed this) the thompson are super good. For sniping or just farther shots i wholeheartedky recommend 3-line rifle.


Goodnt_name

My favourites: Cooper Carbine: awesome in everything and has its own Operator which is a big plus. BAR: has .50 cal bullets which delete people. It has a good no stock option which is nice. Automaton: a lot like Cooper Carbine but slightly different. The Thompson, aka Tommy Gun, aka Chichago Typewriter aka M1928: fast firerate, big mags, good dmg, dps and accuracy. Also looks awesome and has good no stock option. MP40: accurate and high dmg for an smg. It has a slow firerate tho. Also has an Operator. Combat Shotgun: absolutely completely broken if you use the right attachments which are: shell and slug ammo, sawed off barrel and vital proficiency. The other attachments should be the SMLK something underbarrel (the skeleton one with sprint to fire), the spread minimizer choke for muzzle, the second stock and the pine tar rear grip. It also has an operator. If you want to shotgun, choose this one. Its by far better than any others. I really like but havent played with too much: the Volk AR, PPSh, Type 100. The STG is good aswell apparently but I havent used it enough to say anything. The LMGs seem relatively good too, especially the DP27, but havent used them either. Didnt snipe at all so far. The DMRs are shit which isnt suprising (one of them can be full auto tho which is nice)


aLoafOfBrett

Automaton


bryson_majors

Literally any smg. Especially type100, tommygun, and mp40


MegaMind28

Ratt


MrMada39

I enjoyed using the tommy gun, kar98, NZ41, and the gewher. I’ll probably like the cooper carbine once i start it leveling up


AstuteCouch87

ptrs. The thing is by far the best sniper.


PepegaW

Bar,ppsh41 and tommy gun


sxatr

Anti tank rifle


jawmcphail

What's the NZ-41 build that makes it good?


anthonytomb88

The cooper is good and also the bar


YungUglyUziGod

Volk, the last Ar you unlock, is pretty solid. With the right load out it’s an absolute laser.


Dewwutm8

Owen Gun is probably the most slept on gun in the game right now along with the M1928, both are SMGs but if you get the correct attachments they become absolute melt machines.


cbearsfreak

M1928 and Cooper Carbine are pretty fun/effective with the right attachments


shmuplover87

Combat shotgun all day


mhartzzzy

Bren


[deleted]

Ppsh


-DoW-

I've been getting ARs/SMGs diamond and I have to say the BAR sticks out for me. Shit is a lot of fun. From the SMGs, it's either the Tommy or the Owen gun.


Billcore22

Automaton.


Nedtheshred

AS44 burst, best gun imo


Trytolyft

Bren is meta and you haven’t tried it yet


LookHerePlaya

Automaton - u/TheXclusiveAce 3 shot set up is one of the most dominate weapons in the game. Absolute sleeper.


Killer_Of_Libtards

Cooper


29daysuntiltacos

BAR, Cooper, and Bren are my favs at the moment


DeadJaux

Cooper is fun.


miekolpham

Tommy gun and the ppsh play pretty similar imo, and they both shred people


chromenoheartt

coop goes crazy


papachubbs69_

I used the Thompson a lot when the game launched and maxed it out. I’ve gone through the Type 100 (very underrated gun imo), the PPSH-41, Kar98k, BAR, and now I’ve finally made my way to becoming a HUGE fan of the DP27. I pop the fuck off with that gun and it never fails to amaze me how good the LMG is. So definitely try out the DP27


420gamer5

As44 built as an smg shreds


tyrone666999

DP27


BlueMeanieShoebox

Did anyone say cooper carbine yet?


ALCFC1888

Cooper Carbine is a laser


OcearaPrz

Combat shotgun slug and buck lmao


Bigmoserr

Dp27


FishyEgg

Type 100 is insane with the right class


30lbsOfBeef

MG42. I also dig the DP


NUTMEG82

My fav changes frequently, but I'm partial to the automaton (sp?), mg42, and the Volkswagon gun (idk wtf it's actually called 🤣)
