A new Warzone leak has hinted at a big in-game event occurring sometime soon, similar to Fortnite’s famous concerts or completely game-changing events that make major alterations to the game.

Fortnite itself revolutionized how events can occur within video games, with popular artists such as Marshmello and Travis Scott performing both live and pre-recorded concerts for viewers to watch, as well as having huge battles between characters or world-changing events that shift the map and game in new directions.

But could something like this be happening in Warzone? It’s hard to imagine, but it’s a possibility according to this leak.

Warzone players could be dropping in to a big event soon.

Geeky Pastimes, who was one of the first to reveal Season 4’s launch date of June 10, has shared some of his findings while looking into the game’s files, and found something very interesting.

While it’s not completely clear what is due to happen, we can make some educated guesses based on what is available.

A few days after Season 4 kicked off, Geeky Pastimes started looking into the files and found something simply named “event1,” which had a HUD scramble effect and five pieces of music linked to it.

The immediate implication is that a major in-game event could be occurring in Warzone Season 4, potentially bringing some major map changes or similar to the game. This may tie in with a similar leak from Geeky Pastimes, in which it was suggested a major change could be coming to Stadium.

Is it possible that there will be a concert in Stadium, free for Warzone players to turn up and watch? It’s definitely plausible, though it’s hard to imagine the hardened soldiers in a desolate Verdansk turning up to Stadium to wind down.

The Desert Eagle, or the .50 GS as it’s known, is finally available in Call of Duty: Mobile. Once you get your hands on it, there are a few loadouts you might want to consider. 

Typically, with the start of a new Call of Duty: Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game add in a new weapon on top of the new characters, skins, perks, and maps. 

With the start of Season 12: Going Dark, the devs added new night mode maps – including Modern Warfare’s Hackney Yard – as well as everything they usually add, but they’ve added new events and challenges, notably, Small Arms. 

Completing the seven Small Arms challenges, in numerical order, will unlock the .50 GS handgun – which is just the Desert Eagle. It’s incredibly powerful, especially with a few different loadouts.

The .50 GS is powerful, but can be a lot better.

With it being a pistol, don’t expect to be using the .50 GS at long range. You might get some shots off, but it isn’t going to work as you might like. 

Instead, focus on getting up close and personal – even if that means shooting enemies in the back. For maximum damage at close to mid range, you’ll want an extended mag, a better trigger, and an extended barrel.

For these, take the MIP Extended Light Barrel, Match Grade Trigger, and Extended Mag A. Take a laser and a bit of tape too, for those panicky, unaimed shots. 

  • Barrel: MIP Extended Light Barrel
  • Ammunition: Extended Mag A
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Laser: MIP Laser 5mW
  • Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger

Alternatively, if you want to feel like you’re playing Modern Warfare 2, you can work in the Akimbo perk as well for a bit of additional damage.

This loadout comes courtesy of YouTuber TouchKing, who uses a muzzle, barrel, laser, and trigger action as well.

  • Muzzle: MIP Light Flash Guard
  • Barrel: OWC Marksman

  • Perk: Akimbo

The .50 GS can be made incredibly powerful with the Akimbo perk.

As for everything else, you can pretty much finish your loadout however you want – including perks, equipment, and whatever else you want to bring into the fight.
