Warzone’s Season 2 Reloaded update introduces a brand new submachine gun to the battlefield.
If you’re still trying to figure out the best loadout for the gun, consider Warzone stats expert James “JGOD” Godoy‘s best Armaguerra 43 class setup, which turns it into a deadly companion that melts opponents.
The Armaguerra 43 has a very high rate of fire and is built for short to medium-range engagements — the perfect weapon for the close-quarter engagements on Rebirth Island.
But while it is already the fastest firing weapon in its category, it’ll need the right attachments to help with recoil control and damage output.
Best Armaguerra 43 class setup: Loadout, attachments, perks
|Barrel||Botti 315mm CII|
|Stock||Imerito SA Folding|
|Underbarrel||Mark VI Skeletal|
|Magazine||9mm 60 Round Mags|
|Rear Grip||Polymer Grip|
|Weapon Perk 1||Sleight of Hand|
|Weapon Perk 2||On-Hand|
JGOD favors the Mark VI Skeletal underbarrel because of the increased aim down sight speed. He picked it over the M1941 Hand Stop because the latter attachment makes your hipfire accuracy worse, which is the last thing you want on an SMG.
He also recommends equipping the Polymer Grip rear grip for improved recoil control and flinch resistance. There’s no need to pick a grip that increases weapon swap speed if you also run the Amped perk, which means you can focus on attachments that help you keep your shots on target.
To enable you to play more aggressively, the Imerito SA Folding stock increases sprint to fire and movement speed, so you can quickly close the distance and engage on opponents.
Lengthened ammunition boosts bullet velocity for less bullet drop and better consistency when hitting targets. It’s a better choice over Hollow Point, because the latter also nerfs your damage range.
Finally, the Botti 315mm CII barrel makes you slightly more deadly at range with boosted damage and less falloff at longer ranges.

How to unlock the Armaguerra 43 in Warzone
The in-game challenge requires you to get 10 hipfire kills in a single match 15 times. This will then unlock the Armaguerra 43 and allow you to start leveling it up to access more attachments.
This is best done in multiplayer mode in Modern Warfare or Vanguard. In Modern Warfare, you can also leave each match after getting 10 hipfire kills without having to see the entire game through.
While you can opt to do the challenge within Warzone as well, it will be a lot harder to complete because of its less frequent engagements.
A Store Bundle will also be released later this season, featuring a weapon blueprint that will let you unlock the gun right away.
