How to have Ghost and Overkill perks together in Warzone

Overkill custom loadouts are the meta in Call of Duty: Warzone, but Ghost is almost a necessity in most endgame situations. Here’s how to run both perks so you have the ultimate advantage in Verdansk.

Despite Verdansk being littered with a plethora of weapon blueprints, custom loadouts are the most sought after in-game rig for a number of reasons.

Coming in at $6,000, or found for free if one is randomly spawned near you, loadouts provide players with a fully-stocked, custom-class of weapons, perks and equipment to suit their playstyle.

As per Activision’s comprehensive strategy guide, Overkill is at the heart of the majority of their recommended loadouts for Warzone.

But with Overkill taking up that second perk slot, there is no facility to equip Ghost — which proves itself invaluable in most endgame situations, since squads will often reserve their UAV until the final circle.

However, thanks to methrik’s post in the Warzone subreddit, players now have a savvy way of having the best of both worlds.

How to use Ghost & Overkill at the same time

The first step is to scurry around Verdansk and accrue $6,000 for that all-important custom loadout drop, or find one that drops nearby. First of all, you’ll want to purchase a loadout with Overkill (make sure you select an all-round class here).

After locking in both of your weapons of choice, you then need to get another loadout drop (either a lucky free one or by coughing up another $6,000) and pick your ghost class. You’ll see the weapons from your Overkill loadout drop to the ground, so simply pick them up and carry on with Ghost now equipped.

Since your perks do not stack, your perk set will be overridden by the Ghost loadout (so make sure P1 and P3 are spot on).

Pick up whichever weapon suits your endgame strategy the most. Something versatile (like an Assault Rifle) would be ideally complimented by a SMG.

So yes, you’ll have been set back a whopping $12,000 unless you stumble across a random loadout drop, but you’ll be next to unstoppable in the endgame circle. Also, between three squadmates it should be possible to rack up this money, if you don’t spend it on anything else.

Struggling to get the dough? Try completing a couple of contracts with your squad for a big payoff, or loot all the nearby buildings where you’ll likely find a few wads of cash lying around.

Weird Gunship bug makes Black Ops Cold War permanently thermal

A strange bug with the Gunship killstreak in Black Ops Cold War is giving players a secret advantage for the rest of the match, making it easier to spot and gun down enemies.

The Gunship is one of the highest scoring streaks in Black Ops Cold War, with players needing to accrue a whopping 10,000 points to earn it in a match.

Obviously, it’s worth the reward if you’re able to earn one, with the ability to absolutely mow down enemies from above as they spawn in, and can easily rack up double-digit kills with it on the right map.

But some players are experiencing a bug with it that makes the rest of the match even easier, and it’s unclear why.

The Gunship is the top killstreak in Black Ops Cold War.

As you can see in the clip below, Prussian-Monarch was kicked out of their Gunship while playing Moscow Hardpoint, and they seem very confused by it — but not as confused as what happens next.

After being kicked out, Monarch is stuck in some kind of permanent thermal vision, with everything looking black and grey, besides enemies who are lit up white like when using a thermal scope.

This perk becomes immediately clear when he starts noticing enemies with the bright white glow on them, and we can only imagine that it helped close out the game much quicker and easier with Monarch’s ability to see enemies at any distance or hidden in the tightest nooks and crannies on the map.

There doesn’t seem to be any suggestion as to how or why this happened, and Prussian-Monarch seems just as confused as we are, having been unceremoniously and prematurely kicked out of his Gunship.

It must be frustrating to not be able to wield the streak after playing so well to earn it, but this strange bug would definitely make you forget about that very quickly.
