Sometimes, you just can’t beat a big-ass gun with a really large magazine.

Sniper rifles, submachine guns, and assault rifles are the sexy options that get all of the publicity, but we’re talking about light machine guns. The guns that let you hold down the trigger and fill up a building or hillside with lead.

In Call of Duty: Warzone, there are a lot of light machine guns, especially since Black Ops Cold War’s LMGs joined the fray. It can be tough to know which one to level up first, but thankfully, we’re here to help.

For the majority of Warzone Pacific, Vanguard’s Bren has been one of the best guns in the game. It remains incredibly strong even after several nerfs. There’s one specific loadout for the Bren that makes it a laser beam that has barely any recoil, but there’s more than just one option in the game. Multiple LMGs are great in Warzone and we have those covered, too.

Here’s the best LMGs to use in Warzone.
