While November for many might have marked the arrival of Black Ops Cold War as the newest installment in the Call of Duty franchise, Warzone was still insanely popular, and it looks as though players have been using some different weapons, too.

Over time, certain weapons have become more or less popular as the Warzone meta shifts, and while some weapons seem to be mainstays in most loadouts, such as the Kilo 141 assault rifle or MP5 submachine gun, there’s actually quite a lot of variation among players.

With the December 10 Warzone update fast approaching, and with players expecting to see a major Black Ops Cold War-themed mix-up headed to the battle royale, we might see the meta weapons changing very quickly soon.

So, before players start bringing their AUG tactical rifles and Krig 6 AR into Verdansk, let’s take a look at the most popular Warzone weapons in November.

most popular warzone weapons in november
Warzone’s most popular weapons in November saw some changes, including the CR-56 AMAX climbing up the rankings.

So, we have seen some interesting shifts in the most popular Warzone weapons in September. The Kar98k marskman rifle has officially become players’ favorite sniper rifle, overtaking the HDR which falls out of the top five, being replaced by the CR-56 AMAX assault rifle.

We’ve also seen the Origin shift out of the top eight for the first time since shotguns became dominant meta weapons, meaning there are no shotties until the R9-0 in 12th — so maybe they’re not as popular as you think!

It will be interesting to see how Black Ops Cold War integration affects these stats but, luckily, we don’t have to wait too long to find out.

The US Army National Guard ran a series of CS:GO Community Nights and tournaments throughout the last few months of 2020, with prizes up for grabs. Here’s what went down.

Starting in October, the community nights offered up 30,000 points, which could be redeemed for prizes.

For the duration of the three-month-long series, players could also register their teams for bi-weekly tournaments, which were held on the National Guard’s organizer page.

Every player will began with 1000 points, and was awarded 10 points for a win, or deducted 10 points for a loss. The player with the most points each night walked away with 10,000 points, 2nd and 3rd get 5,000, and 4th through 7th 2,500 each.

For the bi-weekly tournaments, starting on October 18, players were ranked on their wins/losses throughout this period. The top players proceeded to the next stage of the tournament and were rewarded with Points, from a pool of 30,000.


To make things interesting though, Missions were in-play for all matches, as a way to earn extra points. For example, actions such as getting headshots, clutches, bomb defuses, nade kills and more were rewarded.

Players were set a mission challenge, for example, get 3 clutches, and succeeding will earn points. Mor information on how missions work can be found here.
