Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s AS Val can actually beat Warzone’s STG-44 and NZ-41 in terms of TTK, but you can really only use it in one game mode.
With Vanguard weapons dominating the meta in Call of Duty: Warzone, once-popular options from Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War have drastically disappeared.
As some content creators have proven, some of these old favorites are still pretty viable – especially on Caldera – but their pick rates remain a shell of what they once were.
In the case of the AS Val – which has dominated Warzone for a while – it still has one of the best TTKs, but the rifle is really only viable in one specific game mode these days.
The once-dominant AR was highlighted by Warzone guru Metaphor in his June 19 video, in which he claimed that the AS Val is still “overwhelmed” but not used.
According to Sym.GG stats, the YouTuber’s AS Val build – which increases hipfire and melee stats – has better TTK than the two meta loadouts for the STG-44 and NZ-41, but that comes with a bit slower movement speed all around.
According to Metaphor, the Modern Warfare rifle is still in that weird place where it’s strong, but not really usable outside of solo matches due to its lower magazine capacity. “It’s a complete monster up close and it has this just amazing TTK too,” he added.
Best AS Val loadout for Warzone
- barrel: VLK 200mm Osa
- laser: 5mW laser
- share: Stovl 6P30 skeleton
- magazine: 30-round magazines
- Rear handle: Dotted grip
Given that AS Val is really only viable in solo games these days, its pick rate has dropped a lot compared to before. According to WZRanked, it now only has a pick rate of 0.18.
It’s unlikely Modern Warfare AR will ever return to the top of the meta, but it’s a solid change of pace – if that’s what you’re looking for.
