In Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, the MCW maintains its status as a top-tier assault rifle due to its versatility and consistent performance. With balanced stats and reliable damage output, it excels in various combat scenarios, whilst it doesn’t have the best time-to-kill, it is still one of the fastest-firing guns in the game – and it will surprise you when you beam enemies from the Prison roof on Rebirth Island!

Pairing an SMG with the MCW in Warzone is crucial for close-quarter combat. While the MCW dominates mid-range engagements, an SMG offers rapid fire and mobility for tight spaces.

  • HRM-9
  • Striker
  • WSP-9
  • Striker-9
