5 things we want to see in CoD: Warzone Year 2

Call of Duty: Warzone is now in its second year, so we’re counting down the top five things we’d love to see in Warzone Year 2.

CoD Warzone Year 2

Call of Duty: Warzone has hit its one-year anniversary, and although we don’t know what the future holds, we’ve put together the top five things we’d like to see in Warzone’s second year.

Call of Duty: Warzone released on March 10, 2020, and took the world by storm. Over the course of its first year, we’ve seen Cold War be revealed in a live event, Zombies invade Verdansk, and Black Ops Cold War and Warzone fully integrate – bringing over all Cold War weapons and Operators, and tied progression for the first time.

No doubt Raven Software and Activision have plenty of exciting things planned for Warzone’s second year. In anticipation, we’ve put together a wishlist of the top five things we’d like to see in Warzone Year 2.

5. Frequent weapon balance changes

Warzone has generally been very good at shifting the meta between seasons. However, when some guns wildly shine over the rest, it feels like there are only a few viable weapons in the game.

Soon after the integration between Cold War and Warzone, the DMR 14 and the Diamattis rendered every other weapon useless. It was a long couple of weeks waiting for those weapons to be nerfed so we could use other guns.

To combat this, we’d like to see weapons frequently changed as the seasons progress. Some weapons are completely unviable in Warzone, so having these underpowered weapons rise to the top of the pack would keep Warzone exciting and fresh.

4. More Black Ops Cold War content

Black Ops Cold War has a plethora of Scorestreaks and Field Upgrades that would be greatly suited for Warzone. We’ve been using the Cluster Strike and Airstrike for a year now, so it would be refreshing to overhaul the available items.

Preventing pushes in the final circle with the Napalm Strike, or taking out enemy UAVs and Scorestreaks with an Air Patrol would really shake up gameplay.

Devs could also swap out the more ‘broken’ Field Upgrades in Warzone, Stopping Power Rounds and Dead Silence, for any of those from Black Ops Cold War. This would take away one of Warzone’s more frustrating elements, while simultaneously giving players new toys to play with.

3. New Warzone map and frequent changes to it

It’s all-but-confirmed that at some point over the course of Warzone Year 2, we’ll be playing battle royale in the Ural Mountains. We can’t ignore the fact a new map is the breath of life Warzone needs, but it’s a given that it will be coming.

Golova Black Ops Cold War

What we’d like to see, once Warzone has shifted to this new map, is frequent changes to it. Fortnite and Apex Legends keep their maps fresh by frequently changing, adding, and removing locations. While Verdansk has changed somewhat over its first year, the community would greatly appreciate more of these additions.

Swapping out less-visited locations for classic maps, or giving areas overhauls through live events would keep Warzone alive and exciting.

2. Next-gen version of Warzone for consoles

Unfortunately, the console version of Warzone puts players at a significant hardware disadvantage compared to those who play on modern PCs. They can’t adjust graphics settings, reach high FPS, or use the long-requested FOV slider.

However, the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 could easily output high framerates and stunning visuals in Warzone. It would be a crime for Warzone not to take advantage of the power behind these consoles, so we’d like to see a new version of CoD’s battle royale that uses the new consoles advanced hardware.

With a next-gen version of Warzone for consoles, we’d like to see:

  • Updated visuals
  • High frame rate
  • FOV Slider

Black Ops Cold War has a FOV slider on consoles, so it’s logical that Warzone should have one too. It’s highly likely a next-gen version of Warzone is in the works, and with these features, console and PC players will be on a far more even playing field.

1. More live events inside Warzone

Fortnite has expertly pulled off live events which bring the whole community together, and many players want to see something similar in Call of Duty.

Black Ops Cold War’s reveal inside Warzone was a highlight of Year 1, and if Warzone were to have more events such as this, there would be even more reason for veteran and causal Warzone players to return to the game.

Call of Duty Warzone

Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare all have a connected story. Seasons ending with live events that progress this story would be a great time for the community to stop shooting at each other for a minute and come together to enjoy the latest Warzone developments.

With the nuking of Verdansk being leaked, we can expect an insane live event to say farewell to the original Warzone map. Hopefully, this live-event will be a success, and Activision feels it’s worth putting more of these in the game.


To summarize, we’d like to see Raven Software and Activision really take advantage of everything that makes Warzone great. At the end of Year 1, Call of Duty’s battle royale is in a great place, but if we could see these five things inside Warzone Year 2, the game would be even better.

Best M13 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 4

Players who use the best loadout for the M13 Assault rifle in Warzone Season 4 will be able to take down enemies with laser accuracy.

Published

The M13 is a fast-firing Assault Rifle that excels at medium-to-long range in Call of Duty: Warzone, so here is the best loadout class for it in Season 4.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded brought major weapon buffs and nerfs that have made significant changes to most players’ loadout weapons in the Call of Duty battle royale.

However, the M13 from Modern Warfare continues to be a solid weapon that may not get as much fanfare as other weapons but can definitely secure wins and high kill amounts for players if they maximize its potential, especially after it got a significant buff in the Season 4 Reloaded update.

With this in mind, here is the best Warzone M13 loadout in Season 4 right now. 

Best Warzone M13 loadout

Best Warzone M13 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus Marksman
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic or Holographic Sight
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The best Warzone M13 loadout is built to be laser-accurate in Warzone, dominating at medium-long range. However, its high rate of fire will also allow it to melt at close range. 

To vastly increase the M13’s range, we’ve opted for the Monolithic Suppressor and Tempus Marksman barrel. Combined, these attachments will significantly improve the M13’s bullet velocity and damage over range, making it effective for any engagement. As a bonus, the suppressor will keep you hidden from the minimap while firing, allowing for greater secrecy. 

We’ve added the VLK 3.0x Optic to the best Warzone M13 loadout for extra precision at range. This unobtrusive scope will allow you to be accurate at almost any range, allowing you to specifically aim for the upper chest and headshots. To further improve its accuracy, adding the Commando Foregrip will remove almost all horizontal and vertical recoil. 

With the M13 having a high rate of fire for an Assault Rifle, you’ll need the 60 Round Mags to constantly reduce the need to reload. It will still burn through this magazine fast, so make sure cover is never far away to give yourself a safe place to reload.

Best perks to use with Warzone M13 class

best perks warzone m13 loadout season 3
  • Perk 1 – E.O.D
  • Perk 2 – Overkill/Ghost
  • Perk 3 – Amped

Players often use lethal equipment to get the upper hand in Warzone, and the E.O.D Perk will drastically reduce incoming explosive damage. As long as you have a little bit of armor left, you’ll be able to survive an onslaught of grenades and Semtex.

Because the M13 excels at medium-long range, you’ll want a secondary that can dominate up-close. Overkill allows you to carry two primary weapons to have the best weapons available as early as possible.

Then, once you’ve got Overkill from your first loadout, try to get Ghost from your next. This will allow you to carry both of your guns and be invisible from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

While carrying two primary weapons in the best Warzone M13 loadout, you’ll often be switching between them to take fights in different situations. There’s nothing worse than being caught while waiting for your weapons to swap, so the Amped perk removes almost all weapon swap delay. 

How to Unlock the M13

Players who would like to use the best Warzone M13 loadout will first need to unlock the Assault Rifle, which can be achieved by reaching Level 39 in either the Call of Duty: Warzone or Modern Warfare.

Best alternatives

Try the best Warzone M13 loadout, and you’ll find yourself with the best loadout for this weapon that excels at any range across Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island
