Best Warzone Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle Class: Loadout, Attachments, Perks & Equipment

It took a while, but the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle finally rose to prominence in Warzone Pacific Season 5, so here are the attachments, perks, and gear needed to create the best loadout.

The Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle made its way to Warzone during Pacific Season 1. For several seasons, he remained on the periphery of the Warzone meta as he failed to dominate the Sniper category.

However, that all changed in Season 5 following its exceptional use by professional WSOW tournament players. Several players have used the Gorenko with great success, and it’s now become an option you won’t want to ignore.

Here is the best Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 5.

Best Warzone Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle Loadout Attachments

  • Muzzle: Mercury silencer
  • Barrel: 420mm Empress
  • Optical: SVT-40 PU 3-6x scope
  • Store: Reinforced stock
  • Sub-barrel: Bipod
  • Magazine: Round magazines 13 mm AM 10
  • Ammunition: FMJ rounds
  • Rear handle: Leather handle
  • Advantage : To concentrate
  • Advantage 2: At hand

The Gorenko anti-tank rifle is naturally slow, so we’ll start war zone loading by equipping the 420mm Empress gun and Leather handle which will improve the speed of ADS. The Mercury silencer will keep your shots hidden and improve your sniper accuracy.

The Round magazines 13 mm AM 10 are the highest magazine capacity for the Gorenko and having plenty of bullets is important when taking on squads in Warzone. FMJ rounds will increase your bullet penetration, which is great when trying to shoot through objects.

The SVT-40 PU 3-6x scope is the ideal optic for the Gorenko and will allow you to adjust the magnification to suit your needs in any given situation. The Reinforced stock will further improve the accuracy of the weapon, while the Bipod will help reduce recoil.

At hand will further improve the Gorenko’s ADS speed and To concentrate will improve flinch resistance, making it easier for you to hit your shots when enemies are shooting at you.

Best perks and gear to use with the Warzone Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle

  • Advantage 1: NMS
  • Advantage 2: Exaggerated
  • Advantage 3: amplified
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing knife
  • Tactical equipment: Stimulate

NMS will be useful against enemy explosives. The extra resistance it will provide might allow you to survive long enough to take out your opponents. Exaggerated will allow you to pair the Gorenko with a Sniper Support SMG like the Armaguerra 43.

Meanwhile, amplified will allow you to quickly switch between the Gorenko and your SMG, allowing you to be ready for every type of encounter.

The Throwing knife is perfect for finishing down downed enemies while conserving ammo, and the Stimulate will provide a vital boost to health and movement in difficult situations.

How to Unlock the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle in Warzone

Luckily for players looking to capitalize on the Gorenko’s newfound success, the Sniper has been available completely free since Season 4 Reloaded, after Activision removed the weapon’s unlock requirement.

The original unlock requirement for players required them to get 10 one-shot kills with Sniper Rifles in 15 different completed matches.

Best Alternatives to the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle in Warzone

The 3-Line Rile is a great alternative to the Gorenko in Warzone for players who enjoy using the game’s sniper rifles. You will definitely notice a difference in the agility of the 3-Line Rile compared to the Gorenko, but it definitely has less punch.

Otherwise, the HDR is a heavy sniper rifle that might look like the Gorenko in Warzone Pacific Season 5, other than the Gorenko is a semi-automatic Sniper.
