The Russian AN-94 assault rifle was finally introduced in Call of Duty: Warzone with the start of the fifth season. The new addition, however, is not surprising since the weapon was already mentioned a couple of seasons ago.
While many hoped the new weapon was extraordinarily powerful, the AN-94 has so far proved to be a pretty balanced assault rifle in the game. Sitting somewhere between the M4A1 and the AMAX CR-56 for Warzone, the AN-94 offers a unique feature in the form of a hyper-burst function.
The first two opening rounds of the AN-94 are released in a burst with incredible rate of fire that tapers for subsequent rounds. Hence, trigger discipline players can potentially use the hyper-burst mechanic to increase their overall damage in Warzone by strictly firing in bursts.
Infinity Ward said the AN-94 is equipped with a huge recoil to balance the hyper-burst function. The recoil pattern, however, is not at all difficult to manage. Those who have spent time with the M4A1 and CR-56 AMAX in Warzone will find the recoil quite similar, at least similar with the correct set-up.
AN-94 primary equipment
Muzzle: Monolithic suppressor
Cane: AN-94 Factory X-438mm
Laser (optional): Laser Tac
Optics (optional): VLK 3.0x lens
enhanced reduces: Foregrip Commando
ammunition: 45/60 Round Casket Mags
The choice between optics or laser depends on the player. Having a Tac laser will increase your downward aiming speed, reduce the amount of wobble when aiming downward, and improve your aiming stability. Those who want to shoot the target as quickly as possible will naturally find a great use with a Tac laser. However, the laser will force the player to see through the default iron sight, which can take some getting used to. If the player mainly plays slowly and cautiously, a VLK 3.0x scope will ensure those long range shots with ease.
Another thing the player has to decide between is the type of ammunition. The nature of Warzone ensures that players use the magazines with the most bullets. Encountering multiple enemies at once, for example, means players have a better chance with a 60-round magazine because they won't have to reload often or at all between firefights. However, players with great accuracy can try their luck with the lighter 45-round magazine which will also increase downward aiming speed for the AN-94. It all depends on the accuracy of the player.
Perks e Grenades
Benefits: E.O.D., Ghost, Amped
Tactical: Heartbeat sensor
It goes without saying that not having Ghost in Warzone is a big no. Hiding from enemy radar scans will always come in handy in a battle royale with over XNUMX players. Also, get EOD to help mitigate explosive damage from RPG craze and Amped to switch weapons faster.
Lethal and tactics are supposed to be situational, but the fact is that both C4 and Heartbeat Sensor are something of a meta in Warzone. C4 to clear rooms or destroy vehicles full of enemies and heart rate sensor to detect hidden enemies.
The AN-94 must first be unlocked in Call of Duty: Warzone. The new assault rifle requires players to reach level 31 in the current battle step. There are also quicker ways to unlock the AN-94, but that will require a greased wallet.
