LMGs aren’t exactly known for their mobility, but the Stoner 63 is one gun you’ll want to try giving a go. With the right attachments, it can be a real winner for you in Black Ops Cold War. 

The Stoner 63 has been a fan-favorite gun amongst LMG enthusiasts since it tore its way through the virtual battlefields of the original Black Ops. While it may no longer be as potent as it once was, this LMG still packs a punch. Whether you’re looking to grab the DM Ultra camo or aiming to get those all-important multi-kills, the Stoner 63 will enable you to do just that. 

It might not be as fast as the game’s SMG and assault rifle classes, but the Stoner 63 is arguably the most viable LMG in the game. Unlike the M60 and RPD, this LMG actually has decent accuracy by default. When you combine this with its high-damage rounds, you have a recipe for success.

Here’s the best attachments you can use on your Stoner 63 in Black Ops Cold War:

Attachments

  • Optic: Millstop Reflex
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.56
  • Barrel: 20.7 Match Grade
  • Body: SOF Target Designator
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: 100 RND
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Pad

While the Stoner 63 has a fairly decent standard sight, the Millstop Reflex remains a staple pick for most guns in Black Ops Cold War. It instantly gets rid of any annoying obstructions and provides a clear picture of your surroundings. 

Next up is the Muzzle Brake 5.56 and Field Agent Grip. Both of these attachments make the Stoner 63’s vertical recoil a lot more manageable, especially when firing for longer periods of time. The gun will still creep up the screen during prolonged engagements, but you’ll usually kill your target before needing to make any major adjustments. 

The 20.7 Match Grade increases the LMG’s damage by a whopping 100% enabling you to sit back and beam anyone that dares stray into your sights. When this is combined with the added reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator, you have a truly lethal combination.

Don’t expect to be light on your feet when you’re wielding this LMG.

While this loadout is not tailored around close-quarter fights, it can still give you a fighting chance against the game’s ever-popular SMG and AR classes. This is thanks to the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raid Pad stock, which minimizes the gun’s ADS time and sprint to fire penalty. 

No LMG loadout would be complete without featuring a large magazine, so the 100 RND mag has been utilized. This enables you to effortlessly take down multiple foes or greatly damage any pesky Scorestreaks that are flying around. Just make sure you find somewhere safe to reload, as the lengthy animation can prove frustrating. 


So there you have it, a Stoner 63 loadout that will enable you to barrage your enemies with deadly precision. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel

Warzone Precision Airstrike trick is perfect for taking out tower campers

If you still find yourself struggling to take out those pesky Airport Tower campers in Warzone, this Precision Airstrike trick will make your life much easier.

The tower at Airport is a haven for players that don’t quite have the ability to take on the game properly. We’ve all seen them, sitting up top in the control room with a sniper and their Most Wanted contract, not willing to take on a fair gunfight on the ground.

Technically, the only way up is the inside zipline, though you can fly a helicopter at it too and hope for the best, but both of these methods leave you exposed, and the tower camper will usually be prepared for it.

This trick, though, is bound to change how you approach it, and gives you the best chance of wiping them out.

There’s only one way up the tower, making it perfect for campers.

For the most part, attempting to use airstrikes on tower campers is futile, as the roof keeps them so well protected — but not if you judge it right.

As you can see in the clip below from Rxelik_, there’s actually a real method that can make your precision airstrike much more likely to hit the enemies occupying the tower.

Rather than aiming it at the control room like most of us usually would, if you aim lower down the tower, the trajectory of the missiles actually falls straight into the room and, hopefully can take out at least one or two of the players in it.

The best part about this is tower campers usually assume they’re safe when they see the warning screen of an incoming airstrike. Due to the roof above them, most tower campers won’t rush into hiding when it comes up, and will be left baffled when it ends up actually hitting them.

If this works out well, you could have a teammate hold the bottom floor, ready to zip up to clean up any kills or prevent any possible revives, though this could still be quite risky if a player or two are watching the zipline still.

Either way, this trick makes it much more likely to take out tower campers, so bear it in mind next time you need to pull someone out of there — just aim a little lower!
