Warzone players call on CoD devs to revert Gulag changes

Some Call of Duty: Warzone fans have spoken out against the latest changes to the Gulag, which introduced a new weapon pool of Assault rifles and SMGs to use for a second chance at survival.

Warzone has become incredibly popular since it was launched as a standalone free-to-play title, with this popularity resulting in plenty of memes, many based around the Gulag feature.

The Gulag faces players off in a 1v1 gunfight, after their first death, for a chance to earn their way back into the match, although some Warzone fans are unhappy with the changes that were made to the feature on May 18.

Modern Warfare and Warzone received a significant update on May 18, with one of the key changes introducing a totally new weapon pool for players to use in the Gulag.

The latest change saw the removal of pistols and shotguns from the prison fight, which have now been replaced with ten new weapons, a mix of Assault Rifles and SMGs. However, Warzone players have now called for this change to be reverted.

One Call of Duty fan, u/rockstonicjuicemagic, even claimed that the new weapons had “ruined” the Gulag, adding that it requires less effort to win now compared to before and that it was one of the “worst changes” that had been made to Warzone.

“The Gulag now has been reduced to left or right lane sniping and wild hipfire shots,” they explained, “the wins mean nothing now and the [losses] are even worse.”

They were not the only one unhappy with the Gulag changes, as another player echoed a similar sentiment, and claimed that the Gulag was too small for medium to long-range weapons such as ARs and SMGs.

“It makes the Gulag players play way too slow and the winner 95% of the time is whoever sees the other person first,” they shared, calling for changes to be made.

They also added some suggestions on how to improve the Gulag, expressing that pistols should be the only weapons available and that equipment such as stun grenades needs to be removed to make it more enjoyable for players.

It is unclear what Infinity Ward has planned for the future of the Gulag and its weapon pool, so players will just have to adapt to the new guns if they want to improve their chances of winning.

And, there are some players in the opposite camp, who have welcomed this change. With such a popular and mainstream game, it’s nearly impossible for the developers to please everyone.

Best .50 GS handout loadout for Call of Duty: Mobile

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.

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.

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.
