How to store the third weapon in Warzone 2

The way to store the third weapon in your medium or large backpack is by ‘stowing’ it. Once you are near enough to the weapon you want to store, don’t pick it up like normal, as this will swap it for the weapon you are carrying. Instead, press the button which shows “Hold to Stow”.

If you’re playing the game on a PC, the default way to stow items in your backpack is by holding the Tab key. Alongside BR, you can also store three weapons in the newly introduced mode, DMZ.

Simply, open your backpack in a safe spot, and swap out your AR for the stowed sniper rifle, if you find yourself in a long range engagement. Then, you just need to keep your aim steady for the best results and a higher chance of cruising your way to victory.
