CoD Warzone Tips

Warzone has now been played by over 100 million unique players, which makes it one of the most popular and competitive battle royales in the market. With multiple modes and different maps to play, it can be difficult to keep in touch with the correct meta, strongest loadouts and other essentials. For this reason, we have decided to provide an in-depth guide to support you in the hunt for victory, regardless of experience or game time played.

Gameplay and Meta

Across Warzones lifespan the meta has changed countless times, this being the populations favoured method of playstyle. The meta is not always a guaranteed success and can be countered if play against correctly. Now more than ever, an emphasis is on SMG’s and Shotguns, so it would be optimal to drag out gunfights to medium-long range. Regardless of your playstyle, we have loadouts that can compete at any range. You can however fight the meta by using weapons that force SMG and Shotguns out of short range.

Basics and Settings

Before we get to the loadouts, you must ensure your game knowledge is strong, and your personal settings are to your liking. In terms of game sense, if you are playing Caldera or Rebirth, enter a private match and travel across the map. If you can become familiar with the map, you can sharpen up on callouts and become a stronger teammate. If in solo, you can gain an idea on what areas will favour you in gunfights. For example, higher ground will favour AR’s, whilst SMG’s will take care of close-range duels.

Your settings are just as important as the basics. We would recommend playing Rebirth and trying out different sensitivities. You will then be able to move accordingly to your style and become more accurate. Additionally, play around with lighting and graphics. Due to the basic lighting of both maps, if you can notice small movements amongst the environment, you can get a split-second advantage in a fight.

Loadout

This happens to be the most important section, as without the correct set-up you cannot dominate on the field. For our loadout choices, we have decided to include an AR, SMG and Sniper set-up. This will allow you to try out several different weapons. In addition, this can enable a more passive or aggressive playstyle, it is in your hands.

AR Setup – Geomatik AR Blueprint

Activision/Blizzard

Attachments:

  • Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel – 25.8 Task Force
  • Optic – Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine – Stanag 50 Round
  • Perks – Double Time, Overkill, Combat Scout

Reasoning: In a game where distance is key, you can stay at medium to long range with this weapon and eliminate multiple enemies in one clip. Bullet Velocity, range of fire, accuracy and weapon control are major positives of this loadout. If you play in a more conservative way, this is a must try set-up. Recoil can sometimes become an issue, but with holding down slightly on the thumb stick, this issue can be negated. Overall, if you keep your distance, you will be favoured in gunfights outside of close range.

SMG Setup – MP40

Attachments with Custom Modifications:

  • Muzzle – Recoil Booster
  • Barrel – VDD 189mm Short
  • Under barrel – M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine – 2 Gorenko 45 Round Mags (Ammunition – Lengthened)
  • Rear Grip – Fabric Grip
  • Stock – Krausnick 33M Folding
  • Perks – Double Time, Overkill, Combat Scout

Reasoning: This is a loadout specifically designed for close-range encounters. With all SMG’s having relatively quick Time to Kill numbers, our loadout will improve mobility, accuracy and control. Additionally, this weapon can be used at a short-medium range due to its damage output. If you are an aggressive player, you will be able to disengage and reengage quickly. Other SMG’s have a higher fire rate when compared to the MP40, but this weapon stands above the others in every other department. Additionally, utilise Overkill and run a Sniper to cover long range.

Sniper Setup – Roman Standard

Attachments:

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 24.9 Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Ammunition: 7 Rounds
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Grip
  • Perks – Double Time, Overkill, Amped

Reasoning: Firstly, the seven round mag is not essential, but is an upgrade to the basic five bullets you get per clip. With these attachments, accuracy, control, range and damage all increase dramatically. This is a great start-up set for any sniper looking to take over, due to the above stats increasing. As with any sniper, run overkill and then an SMG to support you in close-up battles.
