The Season 6 update has hit both Modern Warfare and Warzone, bringing with it a host of exciting new content for players to sink their teeth into. Alongside the usual bugfixes and nerfs, Infinity Ward has added two new guns to the game’s ever-growing roster. Here, we break down the strongest AS VAL loadouts you should be using.

Warzone Season 6 is finally live and players have been busy getting to grips with the game-changing Metro station, fresh floor loot, new maps, and deadly battle pass weapons. One of the new weapons introduced to the game in the latest content update was the AS VAL. This assault rifle boasts a blisteringly fast rate of fire and incredibly quick TTK, making it one of the most sought after weapons this season.

Whether the AS VAL will be able to topple the Kilo’s dominant reign in Warzone remains to be seen, but for now, this new weapon still packs a mighty punch. Unlocking Modern Warfare’s latest assault rifle is also incredibly easy, so you should be able to add it to your arsenal in no time. In order to help you get the most out of the AS VAL, we’ve put together two loadouts you can use to dominate your enemies in Warzone and Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer.

Taking out long-range targets can be a little tricky, but this AS VAL loadout makes it possible.
  • VLK 200mm Osa
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip 
  • 30 Round Mags
  • Rubberized Grip Tape 

Not only does the AS VAL’s lightning-fast fire rate allow it to rival the game’s most popular SMGs, its clean iron sights and integral suppressor give you a lot of choices when it comes to attachments. However, due to the large scale nature of Warzone’s Verdansk map, this loadout is all about maximizing the AS VAL’s damage and overall accuracy.

As a result, the VLK Osa barrel is a must pick. This barrel enhances both the gun’s damage range and bullet velocity, while the VLK 3.0x Optic allows you to easily hit targets at medium range distances. The VLK Optic doesn’t just offer the best visual clarity, it also comes packed with hidden recoil reduction that minimizes the VAL’s vertical kick.

If that wasn’t enough, we’ve also used the Commando Foregrip and Rubberized Grip Tape to further improve the gun’s stability. You’ll still need to pull down on your mouse or controller’s analog stick, but these attachments should keep your shots on target when going full auto. 

Lastly, the 30 Round Mags are also a must in Warzone, especially if you wish to chew through armored units and secure those all-important squad wipes.

This loadout allows the AS VAL to rival SMGs in close-quarter fights.
  • Stovl SOF 
  • Stovl 6P30 Skelet
  • Commando Foregrip 
  • 30 Round Mags 
  • Stippled Grip Tape 

The majority of Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer maps favor close-quarter firefights, so mobility and fast ADS speeds are vital to your performance. Fortunately, the AS VAL has a bunch of attachments that make it incredibly deadly in most game modes. 

This loadout is specifically tailored around enhancing the AS VAL’s ADS speed and mobility. As a result, we’ve removed both VLK 200mm Osa barrel and VLK 3.0x Optic. Instead, we’ve replaced the barrel with the Stovl SOF and kept the standard iron sights. The Stovl 6P30 Skelet and Stippled Grip Tape also serve to bolster the gun’s weapon handling and sprint to fire speed.

Rounding things off are Commando Foregrip and 30 Round Mags. These two attachments should be the bread and butter of any AS VAL loadout, particularly if you’re looking to pick up quick multi-kills. With this multiplayer loadout, you’ll be able to aggressively run and gun your way to victory.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
