Warzone has rocketed to popularity since its launch in March of 2020 and we have put together a list of classic weapons that could fit right into the battle royale.

The first gun on our list is Modern Warfare 2’s Intervention. Renowned for its speed and power, the sniper was the go-to choice for trick shotting in the popular Infinity Ward title.

Next up we have the Honey Badger from Ghosts which was very popular in public matches during the game’s lifespan. The weapon had an integrated silencer which would be very strong when it comes to Warzone as you’d stay off the radar.

Following this, we have another cult classic from Modern Warfare 2. The ACR is one of the most accurate rifles in CoD history and also packed a punch along with it. The weapon would give the M4A1 and Grau a run for their money if it joined the Warzone party.

The fourth weapon on our list the Spas-12 would add some much-needed consistency to the weak shotguns currently on offer in the battle royale mode.

The final two weapons we have are the MSR sniper from Modern Warfare 3 and the Vector from Ghosts. These two weapons where very popular during their eras and would be great additions for players to pick up in Verdansk.

Warzone star Rated joins Tommey on 100 Thieves’ roster

Building on the world’s first Call of Duty: Warzone esports team, 100 Thieves have added former London Royal Raven, Rhys ‘Rated’ Price, as the second member of their battle royale roster.

While Rated wasn’t a focal point of the Royal Ravens in the Call of Duty League, he has emerged as one of the best Warzone players on Verdansk. With his stream popping off and tournament money rolling in, it should be no surprise that he was among 100T’s top candidates for their growing roster.

When Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag announced that 100T would be fielding a battle royale team alongside their Los Angeles Thieves CDL squad, it was historic and fans were anxious to hear who would get signed.

Now, Rated joins fellow native of the United Kingdom and former CDL pro, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, as the team’s highly respected core.

Based in Los Angeles, some may be surprised that 100 Thieves have gone across the pond for their Warzone cornerstones. But, looking at Tommey and Rated’s successes in Verdansk, the signing becomes exponentially justified.

While Tommey sits at No. 5 on the Warzone earnings list, Rated is nearby at No. 7 with a hefty $70K in winnings. Those numbers become even more impressive when one factors in that Rated’s first major tournament invitation was in late June, while some of the other top earners began competing months earlier.

Characterized best as a steady player, Rated picks his angles and fights deliberately, shoots as straight as anyone, and has rightfully become known as one of Verdansk’s most intimidating forces. It’s a testament to his skill that competitors regularly express some degree of annoyance when finding out that they’re stuck in a lobby with the wicked Welshman.

Having teamed with Tommey many times already, the addition is a sensible one. Most recently, the duo took second place during the HusKerrs Howl tournament. While it’s unclear who else will be joining the roster, Tommey and Rated provide an excellent foundation with clear comms and a general reluctance to tilt.

With another Englishman, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, already signed to the Royal Ravens, one has to wonder if Nadeshot will put up the cash for Warzone’s best unsigned star: Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad.
