Legendary Call of Duty pro Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has unveiled his preferred loadout class for Modern Warfare Season 5’s new AN-94 assault rifle, which he’s calling the “best AR” in Warzone.

Most longtime Call of Duty fans were excited to see the Black Ops series’ iconic AN-94 assault rifle be added in Modern Warfare and Warzone for Season 5.

A deadly weapon in the right hands, the powerful AR can pack a punch at most distances, and when an iconic CoD figure like Scump is giving it such glowing endorsements, it’s definitely worth trying out.

That said, in a game like Warzone, where there are dozens of attachments for each gun, the right combination can turn the AN from a strong option to the ultimate choice, as claimed by the Chicago Huntsmen star.

Scump’s AN-94 loadout class for Warzone

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: AN-94 Factory X-438mm
  • Optic: Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Casket Mags

Why the Holo sight?

In all honesty, Scump’s AN-94 class is similar to what you’d probably find most high-level Warzone players using with the new rifle, except for one attachment – the Corp Combat Holo Sight.

The 2017 World Champion himself admitted that, at first glance, the choice may be unusual, considering that he and a lot of others like to use the VLK optic on longer-range weapons like ARs and LMGs.

“This is where it gets a little different, usually you see me using the VLK on a lot of my weapons,” he said. “The VLK actually isn’t good on it, from what I’ve found. This Holo sight is very, very good, for some reason. It’s really weird, doesn’t make sense, but you just have to trust me on this one.”

According to Scump, you need to have the AN-94 leveled up all the way to Level 66 in order to unlock all of these attachments. While that may sound like a daunting task, the good news is that Activision are hosting a huge XP-boost promo from August 7-10, which includes Double Weapon XP that you can take full advantage of in multiplayer.

Don’t have MP? No problem, as there’s also a free multiplayer access period that’s going on from August 7-12, giving Warzone players who don’t have the full game a chance to try out and upgrade the new guns at a much faster rate.

Best way to use zombie abilities in Warzone’s Zombie Royale

Surviving as one of  Warzone’s fleshy undead can be a little tricky in the new Zombie Royale mode, but these tips should have you ripping and tearing your way to victory in no time. 

Warzone’s Halloween festivities are well underway and players have been busy unleashing their inner beast when playing the terrifyingly good LTM, Zombie Royale. The frozen fields of Verdansk have been cloaked in darkness and squads will need to work together if they wish to survive the horrors that await them. In this mode, dead operators skip the Gulag and instead come back as nightmarish zombies. While in this new undead form, players drop all their current equipment and perks.

If you wish to ever see your human form again, you’ll need to use your unique abilities to kill any players that dare to walk amongst the undead. While Zombie Royale’s reanimated corpses may have access to some incredibly potent attacks, they can be killed incredibly easily if you’re not careful. In order to help you get to grips with your newfound zombie form, we’ve put together a handy survival guide that should help you secure more kills.

Warzone’s Zombies have access to some incredibly powerful abilities.

Passive abilities

Warzone’s zombies aren’t your standard shambling corpses – in fact, they have incredible agility. Their passive ability gives every undead player faster movement speed and stronger melee attacks, allowing you to quickly chase down your fleeing victims. Once you’ve tracked them down, swipe at them with your deadly strikes to snuff their life out for good. 

Zombies also have superior vision and can easily see nearby operators. Enemy players are highlighted and their footprints can be tracked, giving you plenty of opportunities to pounce on your newfound target. If that wasn’t enough, zombies are also immune to the gas circle and gas grenades. This allows you to set up some frightfully sneaky plays. 

Charged Jump

Arguably the most fun Zombie ability is the Charged Jump. This highly mobile move allows you to effortlessly leap onto rooftops, scale cliffs, evade enemy fire and initiate fights. You can adjust both the distance and height by holding down the Charged Jump button, so be sure to experiment with this before leaping towards your enemy. 

EMP Blast 

This ability works exactly the same as Modern Warefare’s EMP Drone in that it destroys enemy electronics, equipment, vehicles, and disables digital optics. Your enemy’s HUD will also be disabled if they get caught within the blast’s radius. 

Gas Grenade

Gas Grenades are incredibly potent in Warzone since they disorient your enemies and slow down their movements. Combine this with the high mobility from Zombie Royale’s undead and you have a lethal combination.

You’ll need to learn how to use these zombie abilities if you wish to increase your survivability.

Before you go chasing the nearest player, it’s often best to scan your surroundings for any enemy players that are alone. Not only will this stop your fleshy body from being riddled with bullets, it will also increase your chances of securing a successful kill. While it can be tempting to rush into the fray with your Charged Jump, it does give away your position thanks to the ability’s glow effect. 

Instead, it’s often best to use the cover of darkness to sneak up on them. Once you’ve successfully got within a few meters, it’s time to unleash your EMP Blast. This will instantly destroy any Proximity Mines and Claymore’s, allowing you to safely enter even the most fortified defenses. To make matters even better, the initial blast also reduces visibility and will cause most players to panic — giving you the moment to strike.

Once you have disabled any equipment and digital optics, it’s time to throw in your Gas Grenade. When the grenade has filled the room with deadly toxins, instantly run in and begin clawing away at your hapless victim. The slowing effect and overall disorientation from both abilities should make any escape futile.

Even if your enemy does manage to make a break for it, simply activate your Charged Jump to catch up to them. Just be aware that doing this will make you highly visible to nearby squads, so only use this ability when you have to. 

If you use these tips, you’ll be able to secure more kills as a zombie in Warzone’s Zombie Royale mode.
