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.

There are a wide variety of loadout combinations to suit all needs in Warzone. Which style best suits you?

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.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
