Professional Call of Duty players have all been playing battle royale game Warzone in their free time to wind down, and they’ve given fans a little help by revealing some of their favorite or most overpowered Warzone loadouts to try and get more wins.

As most of them have been playing at the top level for almost (or even over) a decade now, they’re pretty familiar with what works and what doesn’t and often have an idea of the best things to use in-game.

With many players still trying to optimize their Warzone loadouts to perfection, we’ve got a selection here straight from the pros themselves.

Activision
Warzone lets players use their Modern Warfare loadouts in battle royale.

Scump’s Warzone loadouts

As with most players, Scump’s preferred loadout includes an M4A1 assault rifle, partnered with an RPG to deal serious damage and to get enemies out of vehicles. His loadout is:

M4A1

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • 60 Round Mags
  • Ranger Foregrip

RPG

For his perks, he uses E.O.D., Ghost and Amped, keeping him safer from explosive damage and enemy UAVs, and keeps a Semtex and Flash Grenade as his utility.

He also has a second class, with Overkill as Perk 2 meaning he can carry a HDR sniper rifle as a second weapon, though he says he very rarely, if ever, uses it.

Attach’s Warzone loadouts

While Attach uses an M4/RPG loadout very similar to Scump’s he also has a couple of others, including this one, which he describes as his favorite for playing aggressive and getting high-kill games.

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • FFS Recon
  • Rubberized Grip Tape
  • 60 Round Mags
  • Merc Foregrip

RPG

For his perks, Attach picks Double Time, Restock and Amped, allowing him to move quicker as well as recharge equipment quicker.

He also goes against the grain with an M13 class, which he says is the best long-range assault rifle in Warzone, even more so than the M4A1. He uses Double Time, Ghost and Amped for perks, as well as an RPG as his secondary, and his attachments are:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Tempus Marksman
  • Solozero Optics Mini Reflex sight
  • 60 Round Mags
  • Merc Foregrip

Apathy’s Warzone loadouts

Seattle Surge’s Apathy has given fans something different to use in Warzone, making for one of the most unique but deadly loadouts in the game.

He uses a PKM light machine gun, with the MP5 Ducat variant to boot as a secondary weapon. Obviously that means he uses Overkill in Perk 2, as well as Double Time and Amped. He also carries a C4 and Flash grenade.

His PKM attachments are:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • 26.9” Extended Barrel
  • Tac Laser
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Snatch Grip

Apathy describes this loadout as “deadly at every range,” which definitely sounds exciting.

On the MP5 he uses the Suppressor, 45 Round Mags, Stippled Grip Tape, Merc Foregrip and FTAC Collapsible, which is a fairly common MP5 class setup.

So there’s a decent mixture of Warzone loadouts to get you one step ahead of your opponent, whether you prefer long-range engagements or getting up close and personal.

Give them a whirl and see if you can rule over Verdansk – they could be the difference between a huge win or an early Gulag exit.

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

Modern Warfare Juggernaut
Activision / Infinity Ward
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.
