Warzone players want new ‘Rangefinder’ item that would be perfect for BR

Among Call of Duty: Warzone’s tactical equipment, the Heartbeat Sensor reigns supreme—but a new fan suggestion, the ‘Rangefinder,’ could change that.

There are some common loadouts you find across Warzone matches, with guns like the Grau and MP5 being accompanied by equipment like the Heartbeat Sensor and C4. Some will replace the MP5 with an HDR for range, while some might use a Stun Grenade as their tactical.

Still, the Heartbeat Sensor is king, especially in the early game, as it gives you the power of a shoddy, close-range UAV in your pocket. While scouting your nearby surroundings is helpful, what about looking at greater distances? A rangefinder, as used in golf, or a set of binoculars, could solve this issue discreetly—sans a sniper’s muzzle flash or lens glare.

Call of Duty’s Heartbeat Sensor allows you to locate enemies up to 50 meters away.

There are two possible solutions to researching faraway areas: 1) a strongly scoped sniper or 2) an Advanced UAV (costing a clean $12,000 for three simultaneous UAV’s).

The issues with the former are simple, some players don’t run snipers and those who do may not want their position given away by their sniper’s muzzle flash or lens glare (while none of the best sniper loadouts use Muzzle Flash Guards, even using one fails to negate lens glare).

As easily seen here, muzzle flash and lens flare easily give your position away when sniping in Call of Duty.

The issues with the latter are similarly obvious, an Advanced UAV costs a lot of money and doesn’t last for an extraordinary amount of time.

Cue the Rangefinder tactical. Whatever form it comes in, binocular or otherwise, this device could enable players to scope out their surroundings without being easily spotted—making it a perfect complementary device for squads already running one close-range Heartbeat Sensor.

As shared by ‘aedanerickson’ on Reddit, players running this piece of equipment could “zoom into it and watch opponents from a distance without sniper glare.”

 

I’d love to see a rare tactical equipment called the rangefinder. You could zoom into it and watch opponents from a distance without sniper glare. It would be a great piece of scouting equipment. It would also be an alternate option to heartbeat sensor, which so many players use. from CODWarzone

 

While some may point out that the binoculars offered by the Precision Airstrike offer this utility, they ignore the added functionality such a device could offer. Different suggestions range from having a thermal toggle to variable zoom to being able to easily ping enemies for your teammates—none of these are offered by the Precision Airstrike.

Some of those benefits may be offered by a Recon Drone, but with obvious range limitations.

The Rangefinder tactical concept requires some fine-tuning, but it would address a need not currently handled in Warzone while providing an alternative option to the ever-popular Heartbeat Sensor.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
