SMGs and ARs are usually the most picked weapons for almost all Warzone players when they choose their loadouts. It might be time to show LMGs some love and pick up the deadly Bren with this revamped weapon.
Warzone Season 3 played around with many top-rated guns, which left some holes to fill considering the game’s shifting meta. Despite this, tons of LMGs struggle to gain a hold around the meta, leaving only the Bren with a significant pick rate.
Season 2 dished out a well-needed nerf, but the Bren remains one of the better LMGs in the game, provided it’s equipped in the right hands.
But of course, to get the weapon primed and loaded, you’re going to have to equip a decent meta loadout. Worry not, we got your back!

Best Bren loadout for Warzone
This Bren loadout remains one of the best in Warzone.
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: Queen’s 705mm Royal
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: Queen’s Model 11 BH
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 6.5 Sakura 40 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk 1: Tight Grip
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
For the muzzle attachment, use MX Silencer with the Queen’s 705mm Royal barrel, providing increased bullet velocity and overall control. The silencer will also keep you off the enemy radar, making it difficult to spot your exact location, which is essential in Warzone.
Afterward, equip the Queen’s Model 11 BH stock with the m1941 Hand Stop underbarrel. The Polymer Grip will cushion the LMG’s hefty recoil pattern while boosting the Bren’s aim stability, making it relatively easy to spray down your opponents from a decent range.
Pair these attachments with SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x, and the Bren becomes a deadly long-ranged LMG that will melt your foes in an instant.
For the ammo, we recommend equipping the Lengthened to max out damage, then combining it with 6.5 Sakura 40 Round Mags, allowing you to fight several opponents without reloading.
Lastly, bring out the Fully Loaded perk to ensure you never run out of ammo and the Tight Grip perk to keep your Bren accurate while you spray.
Best Bren loadout class for Warzone
Make sure to equip Overkill with your Bren.
Top Perks and Equipment
- Perk 1: EOD
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Lethal: Semtex
- Tactical: Stim
For your perks, the Bren setup goes with the classic meta choice EOD, which protects you from all explosive damage. The Amped perk allows you to swap out to the SMG secondary in case you run into a close ranged battle.
Next, run Overkill because Bren packs a punch in long-range; be sure to keep your SMG with you if opponents decide to push your location.
We recommend picking the MP40 for the SMG because it’s currently a well-liked SMG in the game and will undoubtedly tear down your enemies in close-quarter combat.
If you prefer running an AR in your secondary slot, consider giving the Cooper Carbine a try since it’s a lethal medium and long-ranged AR.
Finally, finish your class with Semtex lethal to help clear enemies from a good cover and the Stim to obtain a health boost if you need healing.
How to unlock the Bren
To unlock the Bren, players need to acquire level 53 of their Battle Pass. It is two levels off the max rank, which means unlocking the LMG doesn’t pose that big of a challenge if you’re willing to put extra hours into your grind.
Considering the Bren is a solid pick in the current meta, the LMG does require a bit of hard work to unlock.
A Substitute for the Bren in Warzone
The Bruen serves as a decent off-meta pick. Let’s say the Bren is not your cup of tea. Then it might be the time to go back to old Modern Warfare days and build a Bruen setup. This lethal weapon deals tons of damage at a more extended range and rewards those who play around holding power positions instead of aggressively rushing in.
On the contrary, the STG-44 AR is another Vanguard firearm established as a versatile and top-tier AR.
