The Owen Gun is one of the ugliest weapons ever seen in Call of Duty: Warzone. But looks can be deceiving.

Don’t judge a book by its cover, and don’t judge a battle royale SMG by its weird, Australian, World War II design. The Owen Gun is a solid choice for secondary slots in Overkill loadouts in Caldera, specifically for the Vanguard Royale mode.

Be forewarned that the Owen Gun struggles a bit before it’s fully leveled up, so the best course of action to unlock desired attachments is to hop into some Vanguard multiplayer matches and pop a double weapon XP token. When it’s leveled, the Owen Gun is fun to use.

Here’s the best way to load up the Owen Gun with powerful attachments in Warzone.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Gawain 188mm Shrouded
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 72 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk: Acrobatic
  • Perk 2: Quick

This is a solid set of attachments to turn the Owen Gun from a clunky SMG into one of the most formidable ones from Vanguard. It buffs the Owen’s stats across the board without much of a negative effect on anything.

The Owen Gun has a slow fire rate to begin with, which makes it rough to use early on. But the Recoil Booster helps fix that with a solid boost to how quickly the odd-looking Australian SMG can pump out rounds per minute.

With this loadout, the Owen can stand up to the likes of even the favorites like the MP-40 and Welgun, Warzone’s two other WWII SMG’s of choice, along with other close-range options from both Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War.
