Why Spotter might be the most underrated perk in Warzone

Over the past few weeks, some players have showcased how powerful the Spotter perk can actually be in Call of Duty’s newest battle royale, Warzone.

Loadouts are absolute game-changers in Warzone and perks are a major reason why. Aside from getting your favorite guns, you also get three abilities – perks 1, 2, and 3 – that grant unique advantages in the battle royale.

While Cold-Blooded and Ghost may be obvious choices for your first and second categories, Spotter is proving to be an intriguing option for the third.

And heres why you should use spotter perk from CODWarzone

As shown by Redditor Aboodx, Spotter can be deployed with potent, destructive consequences. It makes enemy equipment visible through walls, allowing you to mark them and, more importantly, hack them so that they begin bearing murderous intent toward their original owners. 

While the perk isn’t so useful against active lethal equipment, like manually detonated C4 or frag grenades, it is effective against claymores and proximity mines—which are becoming increasingly abundant along stairs and doors since players love to camp elevated positions.

Just yesterday, another Redditor by the name of dcur3 demonstrated how useful hacking can be—even if the equipment doesn’t get triggered. By taking over a stairway’s proximity mines, he is able to turn his enemies’ safety blanket into a false sense of security and head upstairs for a full team wipe. And he had a simple, albeit foul-mouthed reaction to it: “f***ing satisfying.

I love Spotter from CODWarzone

There are other options under the perk 3 category, the most intriguing being Amped and Tracker. For fast-paced playstyles, Amped is key since it lets you swap weapons, reload rocket launchers, and use equipment faster.

Tracker, meanwhile, displays enemy footprints, making engagements much less confusing (and familiar for Apex Legends’ Bloodhound mains). 

Don’t get us wrong, both of those are more than viable options within the battle royale, but all we’re saying is that Spotter should definitely be getting a lot more attention than it has been.

The Spotter perk lets you view opposing equipment through walls, and make them your own.

Players certainly need to determine which tools best complement their tendencies, but the ability to control opposing traps is particularly appealing in a game so littered with them.

While you absolutely do not have to choose it as your perk, be sure not to underrate it either.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
