Call of Duty: Warzone has a new AMP63 loadout going around. And, after a $50,000 Customs tournament, the pros are absolutely sick of the pistol — which lets people grab Ghost off rip.

Until the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat drops with Call of Duty: Vanguard’s integration, private lobbies are the gold standard for Warzone tournaments. 

Customs are great for level of play and the absence of hackers, but rulesets can be a source of controversy. In the past, weapons like the Gallo shotgun were divisive among pros — and a new situation is developing. 

During the $50,000 Symfuhny Showdown, almost the entire lobby was using Ghost and that seemed to annoy many players.

As for why Ghost was so prevalent in first loadouts? It’s the AMP63 pistol that’s to blame.

The AMP63 is becoming more popular in Warzone day by day.

You can’t run Ghost with your first loadout unless there’s a great option at secondary weapon. Quietly, following nerfs to the game’s meta SMGs, the AMP63 has become that option. 

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.2” Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Ammunition: STANAG 30 RND
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

While the gun’s ammo count still struggles, it has a deadly combination of damage and mobility. 

The Agency Suppressor and Task Force barrel ensure the former, while the Tiger Team Spotlight and Serpent Wrap make it ideal for a speed demon.

As you can see from tweets following the tournament, players weren’t thrilled with how things played out.

Talking about it on stream afterward, the first- and second-place finishers, Rated and Aydan, discussed how Ghost’s prevalence was annoying. But both agreed that it was the AMP63’s strength that made the strategy so viable. 

So if you want to live life in secrecy, undetectable by Heartbeat Sensors and UAVs, this class is the one. No more Diamatti, no more RPG — the AMP63 has finally, in Season 6, found its place in the nightmares of Warzone players everywhere.
