Close Range Meta
What is Close Range Meta?
This is the best weapon with the highest effectiveness at close range.
Most of them are SMGs. However, it is often the case that Assault Rifles or LMGs sometimes fit into this category as well.
What do the weapon META categories mean?It's pretty simple:
Your best friend in the game, the best and most effective weapon. Each META patch changes slightly, follow our website to be always aware of which weapon wipes out the enemies.
Still the best weapons, but with some trade-offs. Sometimes there might be worse recoil or lower TTK, but overall it's a great weapon that can outgun enemies playing with pure meta with no problem.
Weapons that can still show something but have some major nuances. Such as low magazine capacity, poor visibility due to the size of the weapon, or a higher TTK. Players with a high skill level can easily use this weapon against lower ranked players playing with Pure Meta/Meta.
Why can't close-range weapons be used in long range combat?The main problem is that due to their design feature SMGs have a short effective distance. This means that when shooting at a distance you will have:
- Low bullet velocity, which means you have to shoot at preemptive range.
- Very high recoil
- Very high TTK
If your enemy is far away, do not even try to shoot at him with a close-range weapon, otherwise you will just reveal your location and the enemy will easily kill you with a long-range weapon. If you don't have a long-range weapon to hit your enemy, just get close to him and then you have a good chance of defeating him.
Can SMG be used for close combat?
Sometimes there are builds that allow you to turn the SMG from a close-range weapon to a long-range weapon. But if you meet your opponent 1 on 1 in a long-range fight and he has a long-range weapon, you are very likely to lose that fight.
Which perks are best for Close Range combat?If you primarily play close range, we can recommend the following perks:
When fighting at close range, you will occasionally have to change your location behind covers. To avoid being killed while running, we recommend taking this perk because it reduces the damage you take while running, so you can change your location to improve your angle of attack.
In close combat it is important to know where the enemy is, so we recommend to take Restock perk in combination with snapshot grenades and knifes. You can throw snapshot grenades frequently, which will illuminate your enemies (not only for you but also for your team), and with a single throw of the knife you can easily kill knocked enemies.
You can't play the game with only close range weapons and you still have to switch to a second weapon in some situations. Amped is a perfect perk for that because it allows you to switch from one weapon to another instantly, thus defeating your opponent in speed.
