YouTuber teaches dog to ‘play’ Warzone and even gets kills (sort of)

A British YouTuber set himself the challenge of teaching his dog to play Call of Duty battle royale title Warzone, and it worked… kind of.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that just about every gamer out there has at least given Warzone a go, giving the battle royale genre its own Call of Duty spin.

But, how many dogs have you seen playing Warzone? We’d wager it’s none — until now, when this wonderful dog, Rosie, took to Verdansk to give it a go.

Will Archer took it upon himself to teach Rosie how to play Warzone with varying results.

UK YouTuber Will Archer has obviously been a big fan of Warzone since it was released in March, and decided to spice up his games a bit by teaching Rosie how to play the game, even building a dog-friendly keyboard for her to use.

Obviously a dog wouldn’t be able to use a controller, as that would be absurd, so his homemade keyboard featured just two buttons: walk and shoot.

There seemed to be a lot of time (and a lot of treats) gone into teaching Rosie to use each button on command, and there were a couple of slip-ups where she would let her paw rest on the shoot button and deplete their ammo reserves, but it wasn’t all bad.

Archer adopted the strategy of letting the plane fly its course before dropping in and landing with the AFK players, when her shooting skills came into effect and, upon his command, would blast their opponents in the head, earning herself three kills in two games.

We’re not going to pretend it’s the best gameplay in the world, there’s definitely room for improvement. But that said, Rosie might also be the first dog to ever get a kill in Warzone, firmly placing her in the gaming history books for good.

Having seen players get wins with just their mouths, or kills using a drum kit, we’re struggling to see what the limit is for people doing something new in Warzone, but we’d love to see Rosie get a victory next time out.

Best CR-56 AMAX loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The CR-56 AMAX is a great gun choice to utilize in Modern Warfare for those who value mobility. Here, we break down two of the strongest CR-56 loadouts you should be using. 

While the Fennec SMG has proved popular amongst those who favor the run and gun playstyle, the CR-56 AMAX gives players more ranged precision and damage for sacrificing speed. The Galil, now known as the CR-56 AMAX, aims to shake up the current assault rifle meta, giving players another option outside of the incredibly popular Grau 5.56 and M4A1 loadouts

The Galil dominated foes in the multiplayer battlefields of Black Ops 1, allowing players to kill targets in just three shots. As a result, this deadly assault rifle became popular for those that wanted to wrack up high kill counts. While the CR-56 AMAX has lost its original name, it still packs a real punch in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. In order to help you get the most out of the CR-56 AMAX, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to gain a competitive edge. 

Best CR-56 AMAX loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost your ranged damage with these CR-56 AMAX attachments.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Unlike Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer maps, the vast frozen landscapes of Verdansk require players to test their medium to long-range shooting. While the initial dash for loot results in plenty of close-quarters firefights, you’ll also need a weapon that can effectively deliver lethal rounds at a distance should you wish to keep your enemies at bay. 

As a result, this loadout is all about pushing the CR-56 AMAX to its ranged limits, while also keeping your ADS speed to a minimum. First up is the Monolithic Suppressor and XRK Zodiac S440. These two attachments drastically increase your effective damage range, reduce the CR-56 AMAX’s recoil, and speed up its bullet travel time. While these attachments may increase your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you need to land those all-important ranged head and body shots. 

The VLK 3.0x Optic is great for a higher zoom level, giving you a greater edge when attacking from a distance, at a slight sacrifice of ADS speed.

The Commando Foregrip keeps the gun stable when aiming down sights and firing, while the XRK CR-56 Stippled Wrap greatly decreases your overall ADS time and sprint to fire speed. Not only will these attachments help keep your shots on target, they will also give you the ADS speed needed to be competitive in close-quarter fights.  

Lastly, the 45 Round Mags supply players with more than enough bullets to shred through even the most well-armored of foes. Having the extra rounds will also keep you from needing to reload every second, so if you wish to avoid any frustrating deaths, then make sure you equip this attachment.

Infinity Ward/DexertoUse this loadout when you want to rival Modern Warfare’s close-quarter SMGs.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • CR-56 EXO
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer favors close to medium range firefights, so this loadout is all about buffing the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed and lowering the gun’s recoil. 

The CR-56 EXO stock drastically lowers the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed while increasing your ADS strafe, allowing you to quickly deliver a highly accurate spray of bullets in just a blink of an eye. While this attachment won’t stop you from falling prey to the popular MP5 and Fennec loadouts, it will increase your odds of survival when encountering the SMGs. 

The XRK Zodiac S440, Commando Foregrip, and 45 Round Mags are the three most optimal attachments here, so make sure you build around these for a new loadout.
