For newcomers, you may be wondering how it is you can even equip your specialist loadout. After all, starting with a pistol doesn’t scream loadout freedom.

All you need to do to be able to use your loadout in-game is scavenge $10,000 and get yourself a loadout drop from the Buy Station.

Some of these weapons have stood the test of time in Warzone and continue to be the go-to guns for guaranteed success. You may be using some of these already, but have you necessarily got the right attachments for them as well?

These are some of the most popular guns and attachments in Warzone.

Kilo 141

The Kilo 141.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

This ultra-reliable assault rifle is a god-tier weapon that has won many a player many a game.

These attachments make it quite a good utility gun and extremely powerful. Favoring power and precision, this setup makes the Kilo 141 effective at range and is basically an all-purpose killer across a sprawling Battle Royale map.

MP5

The MP5.
  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

A classic weapon in the lineage of Call of Duty.

The MP5 is a quick, accurate, powerful killer. Its great iron sight allows for an extra attachment where it really counts, meaning you can snap to a target quicker. These lightweight settings allow you to sprint around the map and provide a quicker gathering of tools and faster looting.

Grau 5.56

The Grau 5.56.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The Grau’s lesser recoil and damage over long-distances make it a killer companion to have.

With these attachments on the gun too, you really have yourself a versatile weapon that is effective at all ranges. Not only that, but a higher magazine and walking stability make the Grau 5.56 an extremely viable option in Warzone.

Bruen Mk9

The Bruen MK9.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Summit 26.8″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

An LMG in the best loadout guide? Surely not?

Surely yes. By reducing its magazine size and stabilizing its accuracy, it becomes a potent killer with high damage. Then you add an optic onto the top of it, and the Bruen suddenly becomes a weapon of mass destruction on the battlefield.

Kar98K

The Kar98k.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

One shot, one kill.

The effectiveness of the Kar98K naturally hinges on the user’s ability to wield it accurately. But if so, then it’s an unstoppable one-hit machine. As a rifle, it naturally has a slower rate of fire, but its stopping power makes up for this tenfold. Attach a long scope and decrease the ADS time, and you can spot and snap an enemy in a split-second.

Five deadly, dynamic combinations that are winning formulas in the Warzone. You shouldn’t even need to test your skills in the Gulag with one of these loadouts in your arsenal.

Hopefully you enjoyed our 5 best loadouts in Call of Duty: Warzone and may it bring you more wins.

Weird Gunship bug makes Black Ops Cold War permanently thermal

A strange bug with the Gunship killstreak in Black Ops Cold War is giving players a secret advantage for the rest of the match, making it easier to spot and gun down enemies.

The Gunship is one of the highest scoring streaks in Black Ops Cold War, with players needing to accrue a whopping 10,000 points to earn it in a match.

Obviously, it’s worth the reward if you’re able to earn one, with the ability to absolutely mow down enemies from above as they spawn in, and can easily rack up double-digit kills with it on the right map.

But some players are experiencing a bug with it that makes the rest of the match even easier, and it’s unclear why.

The Gunship is the top killstreak in Black Ops Cold War.

As you can see in the clip below, Prussian-Monarch was kicked out of their Gunship while playing Moscow Hardpoint, and they seem very confused by it — but not as confused as what happens next.

After being kicked out, Monarch is stuck in some kind of permanent thermal vision, with everything looking black and grey, besides enemies who are lit up white like when using a thermal scope.

This perk becomes immediately clear when he starts noticing enemies with the bright white glow on them, and we can only imagine that it helped close out the game much quicker and easier with Monarch’s ability to see enemies at any distance or hidden in the tightest nooks and crannies on the map.

There doesn’t seem to be any suggestion as to how or why this happened, and Prussian-Monarch seems just as confused as we are, having been unceremoniously and prematurely kicked out of his Gunship.

It must be frustrating to not be able to wield the streak after playing so well to earn it, but this strange bug would definitely make you forget about that very quickly.
