CouRage and Lando Norris create world’s worst Warzone loadouts

McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris returned to Verdansk after three back-to-back races — and joined up with YouTube streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop to try out the worst possible Warzone loadouts.

While most content creators look for the most overpowered weapons that can change the meta, such as NICKMERCS’ M13 or Vikkstar’s Bruen MK9, this duo, alongside Marcel ‘BasicallyIDoWrk’ Cunningham and NoahJ456, obviously had something else on their minds.

They took to Verdansk looking to prove a point by arming themselves with the world’s worst Warzone loadouts, and it made for some interesting viewing.

Norris has been seeing some success transferring his skills to Warzone and the streaming world.

CouRage opted for what he believed was the worst-in-class assault rifle, the AK47, due to its insane recoil, and decided to make the recoil even worse. Pair that with a VLK Rogue shotgun Blueprint with minimal range and you’ve got a match made in hell.

Lando initially didn’t even know the names of what he was using, which really speaks for itself, but he did know that he had the Origin 12 Shotgun and a revolver, effectively making him useless at almost all ranges.

The issue with each of their respective weapons became abundantly clear almost immediately, as Jack tested out his AK’s recoil and was visibly shocked at how much it jumped, spending the rest of the video treating it more like a Dragunov than an AR.

Meanwhile, teammates NoahJ and Marcel had their own issues to deal with. Marcel was using the Code Breaker FR5.56 Blueprint with a smokescreen underbarrel, while Noah opted to exclusively use weapons that don’t shoot bullets; a crossbow and “a shotgun that shoots fire” — and it didn’t make for easy plays in Verdansk.

It took a few games, and it wasn’t pretty, but the squad did finally manage to get a win, albeit without the high number of kills they would usually expect. Noah managed to nab himself 12, but CouRage, Marcel and Lando got 4, 4 and3 respectively: not quite something to write home about.

It goes without saying that these guys won’t be opting to utilize these Warzone loadouts in real games, and as they’re playing, you can definitely see why.

Whether they’re the worst possible Warzone loadouts isn’t clear, but nobody else is going to be rushing to use these classes any time soon.

Best way to use zombie abilities in Warzone’s Zombie Royale

Surviving as one of  Warzone’s fleshy undead can be a little tricky in the new Zombie Royale mode, but these tips should have you ripping and tearing your way to victory in no time. 

Warzone’s Halloween festivities are well underway and players have been busy unleashing their inner beast when playing the terrifyingly good LTM, Zombie Royale. The frozen fields of Verdansk have been cloaked in darkness and squads will need to work together if they wish to survive the horrors that await them. In this mode, dead operators skip the Gulag and instead come back as nightmarish zombies. While in this new undead form, players drop all their current equipment and perks.

If you wish to ever see your human form again, you’ll need to use your unique abilities to kill any players that dare to walk amongst the undead. While Zombie Royale’s reanimated corpses may have access to some incredibly potent attacks, they can be killed incredibly easily if you’re not careful. In order to help you get to grips with your newfound zombie form, we’ve put together a handy survival guide that should help you secure more kills.

Zombie abilities

Warzone’s Zombies have access to some incredibly powerful abilities.

Passive abilities

Warzone’s zombies aren’t your standard shambling corpses – in fact, they have incredible agility. Their passive ability gives every undead player faster movement speed and stronger melee attacks, allowing you to quickly chase down your fleeing victims. Once you’ve tracked them down, swipe at them with your deadly strikes to snuff their life out for good. 

Zombies also have superior vision and can easily see nearby operators. Enemy players are highlighted and their footprints can be tracked, giving you plenty of opportunities to pounce on your newfound target. If that wasn’t enough, zombies are also immune to the gas circle and gas grenades. This allows you to set up some frightfully sneaky plays. 

Charged Jump

Arguably the most fun Zombie ability is the Charged Jump. This highly mobile move allows you to effortlessly leap onto rooftops, scale cliffs, evade enemy fire and initiate fights. You can adjust both the distance and height by holding down the Charged Jump button, so be sure to experiment with this before leaping towards your enemy. 

EMP Blast 

This ability works exactly the same as Modern Warefare’s EMP Drone in that it destroys enemy electronics, equipment, vehicles, and disables digital optics. Your enemy’s HUD will also be disabled if they get caught within the blast’s radius. 

Gas Grenade

Gas Grenades are incredibly potent in Warzone since they disorient your enemies and slow down their movements. Combine this with the high mobility from Zombie Royale’s undead and you have a lethal combination.

You’ll need to learn how to use these zombie abilities if you wish to increase your survivability.

Before you go chasing the nearest player, it’s often best to scan your surroundings for any enemy players that are alone. Not only will this stop your fleshy body from being riddled with bullets, it will also increase your chances of securing a successful kill. While it can be tempting to rush into the fray with your Charged Jump, it does give away your position thanks to the ability’s glow effect. 

Instead, it’s often best to use the cover of darkness to sneak up on them. Once you’ve successfully got within a few meters, it’s time to unleash your EMP Blast. This will instantly destroy any Proximity Mines and Claymore’s, allowing you to safely enter even the most fortified defenses. To make matters even better, the initial blast also reduces visibility and will cause most players to panic — giving you the moment to strike.

Once you have disabled any equipment and digital optics, it’s time to throw in your Gas Grenade. When the grenade has filled the room with deadly toxins, instantly run in and begin clawing away at your hapless victim. The slowing effect and overall disorientation from both abilities should make any escape futile.

Even if your enemy does manage to make a break for it, simply activate your Charged Jump to catch up to them. Just be aware that doing this will make you highly visible to nearby squads, so only use this ability when you have to. 

If you use these tips, you’ll be able to secure more kills as a zombie in Warzone’s Zombie Royale mode.
