How to take out Warzone rooftop campers with simple strategy

With snipers being all the range in Warzone, players are often tasked with getting rid of rooftop campers — and here’s the perfect strategy to take them down!

In Call of Duty: Warzone, sniping is the meta. Verdansk is littered with tall buildings and sniper spots — leaving players on the ground powerless against the wrath of those pesky marksmen.

Up until now, Verdansk has been a sniper’s paradise. Whether it’s an AX-50, Dragunov or HDR, you will have likely fallen victim to one of these deadly weapons since the game’s release.

Warzone is essentially a battle of the higher ground, with squads often camping on top of buildings.

However, one savvy player has found the ideal way to take down those rooftop assassins — and the solution is pretty simple.

Posting their discovery to the Warzone subreddit, a Redditor showed that all you need is a Heartbeat Sensor and a well-placed Precision Airstrike to do those snipers dirty — taking down two rooftop campers with next to no effort.

First, the player uses their Heartbeat sensor from within the building to identify their approximate location. Second, they place the Precision Airstrike marker inside (roughly where the enemies would be) to avoid the laser showing up.

Since the airstrike marker doesn’t show up on the rooftop, the player’s foes were caught off-guard as they had no prior indication that a Precision Airstrike would be raining on their parade.

Since Heartbeat Sensors are dotted all over Verdansk, players will easily be able to get their hands on one. A Precision Airstrike, however, will set you back $3,500… So make sure you’re being the biggest gold digger on the server, to ensure you have enough in the bank!

Failing that, of course, you could just take a leaf out of Apex Legends pro Jordan ‘HusKers’ Thomas’ book, who beamed a rooftop camper from their post, as he emptied his MP7 clip from an absurd range.

The vast majority of us, however, will have to resort to the more conservative tactic of placing an airstrike beneath our unsuspecting enemies — saving that all-important MP7 ammo for later.

Another massive Warzone event is heating up as popular content creator and battle royale champion Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is hosting his very own tournament with $300,000 on the line.

Following close behind Vikkstar’s original Warzone competition, HusKerrs is next in line for his own huge Call of Duty event. HusKerrs Howl aims to crown the best partners in the world as this unique event focuses on Duos action.

After making history as the first player to pass six figures in Warzone winnings, it’s only fitting that HusKerrs’ event comes with the biggest prize pool yet. A whopping $300,000 is up for grabs over the course of two weeks.

From the teams that will be dropping in to when each round of action is taking place, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event.

What is the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event?

The HusKerrs Howl event is one of the biggest Warzone tournaments to date. Not just in terms of prizing, but in how long it’s set to last and how many teams will be getting involved.

Duos will be dropping into Verdansk across multiple weeks in order to qualify for the Finals. Additionally, there’s also a special one-off Zombie Trios section to get things going before the Duos competition really begins.

A brand new Twitch channel has been created just for this event with HusKerrs set to host. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience. Expect almost every competitor to be sharing their own perspective throughout the tournament as well.

HusKerrs Howl will be starting with a Zombie Royale showdown.

First up is the special Zombie Day event on Friday, October 30 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. This is a unique Trios competition in the Zombie Royale playlists. Only one team can take out the prize for what is essentially a warm-up run before the real show starts up.

The following day on October 31, Duos will be dropping in for the first round of qualifying action. This will be followed up by the second and third rounds on November 5 and November 6 respectively.

Last but not least, the best Duos from the qualifiers will advance through to the Finals. This takes place on November 7 to determine the overall winner of the HusKerrs Howl event.

This particular competition is for Duos only.

This particular Warzone competition is for Duos only and will feature a double-elimination bracket. 16 teams will be dropping in for the first day of action. They will go head to head until the very end with only the Top 3 qualifying for the Finals.

For the final two days of the qualifiers, only eight duos will be playing. From here, the Top 2 make it into the Finals. This makes seven Duos so HusKerrs will be taking the eighth and final spot.

As teams are going head to head, the Duo with the highest point total in each matchup will advance. No different from most Warzone events, teams will be awarded one point per elimination. There’s currently no telling how many points will be awarded for higher placements in each match.

Stay tuned over the coming days for full recaps and results as the action gets underway. Big names such as Symfuhny, Aydan, and TeePee are all expected for the event. So it’s sure to be an intense tournament.
