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.

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!

With Black Ops Cold War just two weeks away from being officially released, Activision and Treyarch have officially unveiled all the PC requirements and recommended specs a fan could dream for, including what you’ll need if you want to run the game on high settings.

Black Ops Cold War is almost here and fans are starting to get hyped for the first-person shooter. With only two weeks left until the game’s official launch, most fans have decided if they are going to be picking it up or if they’re going to be skipping out on this year’s entry.

Up until this point, however, neither Activision or Treyarch given a ton of info about the PC version of the game. That’s now changed as the required and recommended specs have officially been unveiled, as well was the specs you’ll need in order run it on other types of settings.

Black Ops Cold War minimum PC specs

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit or higher
  • CPU: Intel Core I3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
  • RAM: 8GB
  • HDD: 50GB for MP only, 175GB for all game modes
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 670/Geforce GTX 1650/Radeon HD 7950

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core I5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X
  • RAM: 12GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970/GTX 1660 Super or Radeon R9 390/AMD RX 580

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs with ray-tracing

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070
Activision released a handy graphic to explain to PC players what they’ll need.

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080/RTX 3070 or Radeon RX Vega64 graphics

Black Ops Cold War Ultra RTX PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 3700X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 250GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080

As expected, if you want to run the game on extremely high settings, you’re going to need the PC to match it. That being said, the required specs are better than what was required in the beta, with the full game only requiring an I3 processor while the pre-release version needed an I5.

This, however, shouldn’t be surprise, as full versions of games are almost always more optimized than their pre-release counterparts. That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how bad the low-settings PC version looks once it’s live. Here’s hoping that it won’t be too bad.
