Vargo 52 Warzone: Full Guide

Once in a while, a weapon will come along in the Call of Duty space that acts as a ‘game-changer’. In recent weeks, fans of Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, and Warzone have been enjoying the Vargo 52 – the most recent game-changing weapon. It was released as part of the Black Ops Cold War roadmap, but it has also made an appearance in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. Today, we’re here to tell you everything about the Vargo 52 Warzone unlocking process and give you the best loadout information.

It’s a versatile assault rifle that does good damage at all ranges, performing very similarly to Cold War’s Krig 6. If you pair up this all-new assault rifle with a rapid-fire sidearm and a ‘tanky’ perk set-up, such as E.O.D. and Tempered, you’ll dominate the battlefield.

Without further ado, let’s break down the best Vargo 52 loadout for Warzone.

How to Unlock the Vargo 52


There are four paths to unlocking the Vargo 52, and they’re spread out across Modern Warfare, Cold War, Zombies, and Warzone. If you’re looking for the hottest Vargo 52 Warzone loadout, it all begins with unlocking the weapon in the first place. Here’s what you’ll need to do to unlock the weapon:

  • Warzone: Score 1000 points in damage with an assault rifle across fifteen different matches.
  • Cold War and Modern Warfare: Score 1000 points in damage with an assault rifle across fifteen different matches.
  • Cold War Zombies: Kill 750 zombies with a Tier 3 pack-a-punched assault rifle.

This isn’t a remarkably tough challenge overall, and you can skip these tasks entirely and simply purchase the blueprint from the Call of Duty store. However, at the time of writing this guide, there’s a particularly nasty Vargo 52 bug hanging around that’s related to the Vergo 52 blueprint not actually working properly. The blueprint, officially known as ‘Ferrofluid’ simply doesn’t work in the game, and players are actively seeking refunds for the purchase.

However, if you simply put in a little effort and complete one of the tasks named above, you’ll be fine.

Best Vargo 52 Warzone Loadout

Ultimately, the best Vargo 52 loadout is based around most of the Cold War ARs we already use in Warzone. With that in mind, you’ll want to be running the following attachments.


  • GRU Suppressor
  • 18.6″ Task Force Barrel
  • Spetsnaz Grip
  • Spetsnaz 60 Rnd Magazine
  • Axial Arms 3x (personal preference)

If you’re a fan of close-range combat, you might want to switch out the Axial Arms optic for something like a Millstop Reflex sight. If you’re running your Vargo 52 loadout as we’ve described above, you can rest assured that you’ve got the lowest recoil, highest damage and range variant there is. While you’re taking a slight hit on mobility, on a map like Rebirth, that doesn’t really matter. It’s an almost unnoticeable drop when it comes to ADS speed overall.

So, if you’re excited to use this weapon, get out there and grind the Vargo 52 challenge. Remember that the Vargo 52 blueprint is currently broken – so don’t waste your money on it.
