Nadeshot, ex-Call of Duty professional and owner of 100 Thieves, has revealed his “must use” Bruen Mk9 class for Warzone as the LMG continues to dominate the meta in Verdansk. 

Warzone’s meta changes in Season 4 have seen the Bruen grow to be the best gun in the game, picking up where the Grau 5.56 left off. It’s incredible damage output and manageable recoil mean it is able to outperform nearly every other weapon at medium to longer range.


We’ve seen a variety of set ups used by prominent community members, but now, Nadeshot has shared his “must use” Bruen class that he uses to dominate his opponents.

  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • XRK Summit 26.8″
  • 60 round mags
  • Tac Laser

The class is certainly designed for medium to longer ranges. The Monolithic Suppressor and heavier barrel will significantly improve damage range, while also reducing recoil. The former will also keep players off enemy radars while firing, ideal to ambush enemies in Verdansk.


His chosen optic, too, is designed for longer range engagements. This is one attachment you can swap out if you prefer a different optic, like a thermal sight.

The Tac Laser and 60 round mags will go some way to negate the handling and mobility penalties incurred by the heavier barrel. Reload time, too, will be massively reduced by the 60 round mags – an absolutely essential attachment on the Bruen in any game mode.

Despite the Grau dominating Warzone’s opening months, the nerfs it received in recent updates has seen the Bruen come into its own as the best weapon in the game. It has become so dominant, in fact, that a host of community members have called for it to be nerfed in the near future.


Whether Infinity Ward have a nerf coming for the Bruen in an upcoming update is another matter, but try out Nadeshot’s class while it’s still Warzone’s top dog.

Call of Duty League franchise, Florida Mutineers, are putting together a Warzone tournament series that will give interested players a chance to compete against big-name pros and content creators for a slice of the $25,000 prize pool.

With the dog days of the Call of Duty League offseason very much upon us, more and more teams are entering the business of hosting Warzone competitions, with the Florida Mutineers being the latest example.


Along with one of their leading sponsors, Cox, the Mutineers have organized the Elite Gamer event, a series of Warzone tournaments that will culminate with a $25,000 championship featuring a lot of popular figures in and out of the gaming world.

Before that, however, players in the United States will get a chance to compete in several smaller play-in competitions, which will feature their own prizes as well as qualifier spots for the main event.

The Elite Gamer series will wrap up on October 27 with the $25,000 Pro-Am Championship tournament, which will feature “celebrities, professional athletes, musicians, and top CDL players,” according to the team.

$15,000 will go to the first-place duo, $5,000 to second place, and the remaining $5,000 will be donated to The Call of Duty Endowment – a non-profit organization that seeks to help veterans find high-quality careers by supporting groups that prepare them for the job market and by raising awareness of the value veterans bring to the workplace.

Several players have already been confirmed, including Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren and Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad – popular streamers who have already won several high-profile Warzone competitions. The full list of participants will likely get revealed at some point ahead of the main event.
