Warzone’s hated ‘melee slot’ mechanic doesn’t exist, claim JGOD and TrueGameData


Killing your enemies as quickly as possible is key to winning shootouts in Call of Duty: Warzone, so here are the weapons with the lowest TTK after the Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded update.

With Warzone now having over 150 weapons to choose from, you need to choose your loadout wisely. There are several factors to consider, such as mobility, recoil, and range, but one of the most important factors is time to kill (or TTK). The lower your weapon’s TTK, the better. This means that you will kill your enemy as fast as possible, which will give you the advantage in all your firefights.

Warzone’s TTK has changed significantly with Reloaded Season 2, with all Caldera modes at 150 player HP and Rebirth Island Reinforced retaining the standard 100 HP. The lowest TTK weapons in Warzone are surprising, so we’re breaking down the fastest guns after the Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded update.

The fastest short range weapon in Warzone

Thanks to stats from TrueGameData.com, we can see that the fastest close range weapon to kill in both Caldera and Rebirth Island is the JAK-12 shotgun.

At close range, the JAK-12 can achieve a TTK of only 400 ms when hitting the chest in Caldera and Renaissance Island. You’ll find it more forgiving with Rebirth Island’s 250 HP, but you’ll still want to be close to hit that fast TTK.

However, if you’re looking for something more versatile, then Vanguard’s Owen Gun might be the gun for you. With a TTK of only 663ms in Caldera, this is arguably the best SMG in the game.

Of course, the TTK can change depending on where your shots land, like getting a headshot or hitting certain limbs.

Lowest TTK JAK-12 Loadout

  • Muzzle: Forge Tac Maurader
  • Barrel: ZLR J-3600 Torrent
  • Laser: 5mW laser
  • Magazine: 20 round battery chargers
  • Rear handle: Dotted grip tape

This JAK-12 loadout is all about suppressing players from close range, with tight pellet distribution and fast sprint speed.

We launched this JAK-12 loadout with both the TAC Forge Marauder muzzle and ZLR J-3600 Torrent barrel, which tightens the spread of the bullet, ensuring that every pellet hits the target. Then the 5mW laser increases hip fire accuracy and 20 round battery chargers allows you to fire more shots before reloading.

Finally, the Dotted grip tape makes you shoot immediately after sprinting, which is vital for a shotgun build.


Warzone’s fastest long-range weapon

FiNN LMG in Call of Duty Warzone

The JAK-12 may have the lowest TTK in Warzone, but it’s only effective up to 10 meters. You’ll need a weapon to fight from a distance, so what’s the fastest long-range weapon to kill in Warzone?

You might be surprised it’s actually Modern Warfare FiNN LMG with the lowest long range TTK in Warzone. At long range, the FiNN is able to down a player in just 720ms at 30 meters at Calderaand 600 ms on Renaissance Island.

It’s not necessarily the best gun in the game, but with the right build, you’ll be able to just take out players from long range. And what makes it even better is that this TTK doesn’t rely on headshots – even hitting all body shots, it will still kill just as fast.

Lowest TTK FiNN LMG loadout

Best FiNN LMG Loadout
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK LongShot Opponent
  • Laser: Tackle
  • Optical: VLK 3.0x Optics
  • Sub-barrel: Commando Grip

It’s the Adverse cannon that turns the FiNN LMG into the fastest weapon in Warzone. Combining the XRK LongShot Opponent and Monolithic Suppressor gives the weapon fast bullet speed and, more importantly, low TTK.

Then it’s about making sure you can stay on target. the Tackle increases ADS speed and reduces sway, while the Commando Foregrip dramatically increases recoil control. And finally, the VLK 3.0x Optics has the sharpest sight of any weapon in Modern Warfare, making it easier to spot and laser enemies.


These are the two fastest weapons after the Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded update! Future weapon balancing changes will likely alter the TTK meta, so we might see other Vanguard weapons enter this list.
