Warzone players suggest simple new feature to make teamwork easier

Warzone has all of the key ingredients to be the best battle royale in its class, but solid teamwork can often be the one thing standing between you and a victory in Verdansk.

There’s no denying that Warzone revolutionized the battle royale genre when it launched back in March. The perfect balance of traditional Call of Duty mixed with innovative features saw the Infinity Ward title soar in popularity.

Yet roaming the streets of Verdansk in search of an elusive victory can often be difficult when you’re not landing with a premade squad, given the obvious strains on communication.

Dropping into Verdansk with a random team is an arduous task.

Of course, you could strike lucky and land yourself some teammates who communicate — but that’s often like finding a needle in a haystack!

With this in mind, one savvy Warzone player has devised the perfect solution, so players can see their teammates’ inventory status at a glance.

Essentially, under your teammates’ health bar, a bunch of icons would indicate all the important items on their person. Wondering if your teammate has Armor Plates? Glance down beneath their health bar and find out…

Icons to indicate everything from Self-Revive to Killstreaks would help tenfold near the endgame.

While this is a basic enough premise, it would likely prove to be a game-changer when you and your squad are gearing up for an endgame scenario.

Gas Masks are especially valuable during the dying moments of a match, so spending the extra dollar for your teammate to have one is a no-brainer.

While the feature is far from arriving in-game (given that it is merely a concept), it would be a welcomed addition to players’ HUD — giving valuable information without being too intrusive.

Whether Infinity Ward opt to put their own spin on the Redditor’s concept remains to be seen. But if the popularity of the idea on the Warzone subreddit is anything to go by, it is most definitely a sought after feature that the community would welcome with open arms.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
