The future of Call of Duty: Warzone looks very bright, but what are the best ways to organize your classes so you’re prepared for every eventuality? Here, we break down how to get 10 perfect loadouts for your next Warzone match. 

One of the many aspects of Warzone that has made it so popular is its incorporation of Modern Warfare’s Gunsmith system, allowing extensive class customization depending on your preferences and play-style.

However, with such freedom comes a lot of difficult decisions, especially with perks and other options. But what are the best ways to split up your ten classes, with perks, weapons and equipment?

Here, we break down some basic tips for forming basic classes, allowing you to prepare for any eventuality.

Ghost and Overkill in Warzone

Our first tip is to have 3/4 classes with the Ghost perk equipped, and another 3/4 with Overkill equipped. Overkill will allow you to use two primary weapons, while Ghost will hide you from enemy UAVs and radars.

Having a few classes with each of these perks will allow you to essentially use both, provided you have access to two Loadout Drops as the game goes on.

In the first Loadout Drop, pick a class with whichever perk you feel is more appropriate for the situation you’re in. For example, if you’re in a busy location with enemies around you, you’re best getting Ghost to hide you, and you can get an Overkill class later in the game.

Our final tip in this regard is to learn which classes have which perks. For example, make classes 1 to 4 Ghost classes, and make 5 to 8 Overkill. This will save you time when searching for classes in a Loadout Drop.

SMG vs AR vs LMG vs Sniper

With the Bruen and Grau having been comprehensively nerfed, Warzone’s weapon pool is fairly balanced at the moment. We’d recommend mixing up your weapon choices, to allow variety and choice when calling in a Loadout Drop.

When it comes to your Ghost classes, don’t pick a sniper. If you only have one primary and it’s a sniper, you’ll get killed at most ranges. With Overkill classes though, vary your combinations. Get an SMG and AR class, an AR and sniper class, and a couple of others.

This way, you can pick your class depending on the game you’re in. If your later circles are in smaller, tight POI like Storage Town, go for the SMG and AR mix. If it’s in an open area with long lines of sight, pick the AR and sniper mix.

Equipping two primary weapons was always going to be a popular choice.

Fully Loaded?

You’ll also want a couple of classes with Fully Loaded on. If you’re spawning back in and have access to a Loadout Drop, there’s nothing worse than picking up a seriously strong weapon and not having any bullets to go with it.

Add it to one or two of your loadouts and you’ll be sorted for ammo when you drop back in. Bear in mind that it’s a weapon perk though, so it’s found in the weapon customization area of your classes.

There you have it! Those are our basic tips for devising Warzone classes for all situations. If you’re still struggling, check out our other Warzone guides on which guns, attachments and perks you should be using in your other slots!

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
