Best FiNN loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The mid-season update has hit both Modern Warfare and Warzone, introducing a wave of new content for players to get their hands on. The FiNN LMG is the latest gun to be added to the game and comes with a powerful punch. Here, we break down two of the strongest FiNN loadouts you should be using.

While the ever-popular Bruen LMG took a double hit in Activision’s August update, many players have been looking for the next best replacement. Fortunately, it looks like the newly released FiNN LMG will do just that. This high-damage gun has incredible precision, ludicrous fire rate, and easily controllable recoil. Judging from early gameplay, it seems that the FiNN shares a lot of similarities to that of its post-patch predecessor.

In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if this LMG receives a nerf at some point. However, those of you who miss the hyper-aggressive playstyle of the Bruen will definitely want to add this LMG to your arsenal. Unlocking Modern Warfare’s latest weapon is also incredibly easy, so you should be able to complete the challenges in no time. In order to help you get the most out of the FiNN, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate your enemies in Warzone and Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer.

These attachments greatly bolster the FiNN’s kill potential across multiple distances.
  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • XRK Longshot 
  • Tac Laser
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip

This loadout absolutely shreds across close to medium engagement ranges, making it incredibly deadly during those late-game firefights. Even better, we’ve also kitted the FiNN out with a few attachments to help minimize its vertical recoil, so you’ll be able to beam squads at range if you have a steady aim. 

First up is the Monolithic Suppressor and XRK Longshot. The muzzle not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also keeps you hidden from the minimap. Meanwhile, the XRK bolsters the FiNN’s rate of fire, speeds up its bullet velocity, and even adds to the LMG’s range. 

These two attachments push the FiNN to its very limits, but you’ll need to pull down on your mouse/analog stick if you wish to mitigate its vertical recoil completely. While the Commando Foregrip does help to ease the FiNN’s vertical kick, it can still be a little unruly if left unchecked. 

Attaching a Tac Laser will also increase accuracy and reduce the time penalty of aiming down sights, giving you the quick response time you need to be competitive in close-quarters fights. The Tac Laser also effectively eliminates the ADS penalty of most optics, allowing you to use the VLK 3.0x sight. This optic is incredibly popular due to its clean central red dot and is one of the only magnified sights that doesn’t clutter your field of view. Being able to clearly see your targets at range is also a massive benefit, especially when you’re scouring the map for the next kill.

FiNN Multiplayer attachments
Activision / Infinity Ward
Just like most LMG’s, the FiNN can be rather cumbersome. These multiplayer attachments aim to fix that.
  • XRK Longshot 
  • Tac Laser
  • G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Commando Foregrip
  • Sleight of Hand

Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer maps largely favor close-quarter firefights, so this loadout is all about enhancing the FiNN’s ADS speed. As a result, we’ve removed Monolithic suppressor and switched out the VLK Optic for the G.I. Mini Reflex. These attachments may work wonders on the game’s medium-range maps, but they are extremely situational and offer very little positives outside of Warzone. 

The FiNN’s standard sights aren’t unusable, but we found that G.I. Mini Reflex gave us the added accuracy needed to snag those quick cranium kills. Meanwhile, both the XRK Longshot, Tac Laser, and Commando Foregrip have been kept due to their speed-enhancing attributes. 

These three attachments should be the bread and butter of any FiNN loadout, so try to build around them when experimenting with any new combinations.

Rounding things off the bottom of the list is the Sleight of Hand Perk. Not only will this perk greatly cut down any lengthy reload times, it will also help you avoid frustrating mid-reload deaths. After all, there’s nothing worse than getting caught in a situation where you can’t fight back.

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta was live across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
