How to win Warzone solos

Winning a game of Solos in Call of Duty: Warzone is tough, but with the right strategy and mindset, you’ll be the last man standing more often than not. Here are a few tips to keep in mind for Season 3.

The very nature of Battle Royale games is that they are RNG. Where the circle pulls, what loot you get, the skill of the enemies, it’s all random. Sometimes you won’t find a weapon and another player will, and it’s game over.

However, there are strategies and tactics you can pull off to help maximize your potential to win. Having solid aim is a massive benefit for Warzone, but positioning and awareness are arguably more important. Now that there will be fewer Bertha’s for protection, you’ll need to rely on your skill to survive.

Here are six top tips to help you win more Warzone Season 3 Solo matches.

Use CoD: Warzone’s meta weapons

This is a controversial take as the vocal minority on social media believes there’s something wrong with using the best weapons available. Sure, it’s always fun to try something different, but if you’re playing exclusively for the win, you should use the meta weapons.

At the time of writing, the meta is extremely open. Raven Software has been on top of weapon balance during Season 3, focusing on raising the time to kill across the board and increasing the skill gap. While the CR-56 AMAX and Kar98k arguably remain the best choices, you can use almost any weapon you like.

You can take a look at the best weapons in Warzone Season 3 in our full guide and tier list.

Land quiet & complete Recon contracts

Players dropping in to Verdansk '84

It’s extremely tempting to land directly on a Scavenger contract or in a busy area such as Superstore or Season 3’s Nakatomi Plaza. You may pick up a handful of kills, but unless you’re extremely skilled, you’ll be at a disadvantage when leaving. Players often land a little bit away from the hot drops, get loadout, and then push. If you’ve been fighting the whole time, you probably won’t have managed to get a loadout.

If you land in a quiet area, you can loot up in piece and get everything you need for the match ahead. Use this downtime to complete Recon Contracts and you’ll know exactly where the next circles will go.

Avoid buildings

Solos is the campiest of any Warzone experience. Players will do almost anything for the win, and now that they can’t drive around in Berthas all game anymore, this means camping inside buildings.

Warzone buildings

Unless you hear a chest humming from inside a house, it’s probably best to avoid it. You never know what disaster awaits inside, whether it’s a claymore by the door or a player sitting in a corner with a Streetsweeper. Even then, some players purposely leave chests as bait.

Instead, if it’s likely an enemy is inside a building, position yourself between it and the next zone. When the camper leaves their den, they will be easy picking as they come towards you.

Pinwheel rotate to the next zone early

Holding players outside of the circle is an extremely effective strategy. There’s nothing worse than having the gas nipping at your heels while a player is on a headglitch in front of you, so you want to be that player.

As soon as you see where the next circle is, you want to be one of the first to rotate. YouTuber IceManIsaac has made a great video on how to ‘pinwheel rotate’ to the next zone. To put it simply, what you need to do is go round the edge of the circle before moving in. This way, you know behind you is clear when you decide to move.

Alternatively, if you hear gunfire outside of the next zone, you want to position yourself in the circle so the winner will need to run into you. Once the fight has concluded, the winning player will be late to rotate in and you can easily pick them off.

Take the high ground

Warzone rooftop sniping

A lesson learned from Obi-Wan Kenobi, the high ground is the key to victory. You never want to be caught in an uphill battle where the enemy can see all of you, and you can only see the tip of their head.

Contrary to our tip on avoiding buildings, if a building provides high ground over the final circle, that’s where you want to be. Even if you get knocked by a player below, they won’t be able to finish you off as you will drop away from their view.

If you need to drop down from a high building, don’t glide immediately as then you will be easy pickings. Fall almost to the ground, then pull your shoot at the last second, which you can effectively do with the best controller settings.

Third-party in the last circle

Execution in Warzone

In Warzone solos, the win is often taken by the stealthiest player. Say there are three players left – you and two enemies. If you spot one of them, don’t shoot. Keep an eye on them (but don’t get tunnel vision), and wait for them to engage the other player. Once they are fighting, you have every advantage in the fight. They will be focused on the other player, and probably weak as they trade shots.

This has to be decided by you while in the situation, as sometimes you have no other choice but to take the fight. As soon as it’s over, immediately gets ready for the last player to push you. Unless you desperately need armor or ammo, don’t bother looting.


While all of these tips will be of great help in winning Warzone solos, don’t solely rely on them. You need to decide yourself the best thing to do in the given situation.

Best AS44 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 4

Here are the attachments, Perks, and Equipment you need to make the best AS44 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Published

AS44 in Warzone

The AS44 Assault Rifle is an excellent option for long-range combat, so here are the attachments, Perks, and Equipment that you need to assemble the best AS44 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4. 

Warzone Pacific features a wide selection of Assault Rifles that you can use for either medium or long-range combat situations, including the AS44 which received a significant buff in the Season 4 update.

You can use this Assault Rifle to cause some serious pain to your opponents, and we’ve got the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment that you’ll need to make the best AS44 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Best Warzone AS44 loadout attachments

AS44 assault rifle warzone pacific
  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 615mm
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Kovalevskaya Custom
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip 
  • Perk: Disable
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

We’ll start off this Warzone Pacific loadout by equipping the MX Silencer and Kovalevskaya 615mm to bring the weapon’s recoil under control while boosting its accuracy and effective damage range.

The Hatched Grip and the Kovalevskaya Custom will boost the weapon’s flinch resistance and recoil control, allowing you to beam enemies with the AS44. You can take advantage of the improved accuracy by equipping the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x optic to pick off distant foes.

We picked the 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags to ensure that the AS44 has enough ammo to bring down multiple targets as well as increase recoil control and accuracy further. The Lengthened ammo type will provide the AR’s bullet velocity with a boost.

Coming to our choice of perks, we went with Disable to make enemies less capable of escaping after your bullets slow their movement speed, and with Fully Loaded, you’ll start off with the maximum amount of ammo.

Best AS44 Perks and Equipment 

Warzone E.O.D, Ghost, and Amped Perks
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stun

We recommend equipping the E.O.D Perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage from grenades and thermites that enemies throw at you. Overkill will allow you to pair the AS44 with a close-range weapon like the H4 Blixen.

You should select Amped as your final Perk so that you can instantly switch between your two weapons. The Throwing Knife will let you easily finish downed enemies that you’ve rushed, while the Stun will make that rush down a simpler task.

How to unlock the AS44 in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific

AS44 in Warzone

You can unlock the AS44 after reaching Rank 33, and using a Warzone Double XP event is a great opportunity to level up in the game much quicker.

Most of the attachments used to create this loadout are unlocked at later levels. Without some key attachments, you’ll certainly notice this weapon’s obnoxious recoil. Rest assured, with the right attachments the AS44 is a menace. 

Warzone Pacific alternatives to the AS44

If you want a great alternative to the AS44 then we recommend trying out the KG M40 which is also garnering attention in Season 4 as a fantastic long-range Assault Rifle. Of course, even after the June 30 nerf, the NZ-41 is still a devastating option in Season 4.

Surprise Warzone AR is Season 4’s easiest weapon to use

A surprising Warzone AR is set to challenge the NZ-41 as the top long-range Warzone weapon in Season 4 thanks to its extremely low recoil.

Published

on

Warzone KG M40 Assault Rifle

After the NZ-41 received a significant nerf in Season 4, Warzone experts are in agreement that an easy-to-use Vanguard AR could take over as a dominant long-range weapon in Warzone.

Warzone’s long-range meta is constantly shifting as weapons receive buffs and nerfs with each new update. Previously, the STG44 was a dominant force before the NZ-41 took its spot as the top option. However, since the June 30 update nerfed the NZ-41, a new weapon could take over.

It seems several Warzone experts are suggesting that the same Vanguard Assault Rifle is destined to rise to the top in Season 4. The weapon is a surprising pick, but thanks to its friendly recoil pattern, it’s becoming difficult to ignore.

KG M40 Warzone Assault Rifle

The KG M40 made its way to Warzone Pacific during Season 2 as a free Battle Pass weapon. Unfortunately, it immediately failed to make an impression given how competitive the Assault Rifle meta was at the time.

However, it seems like the underrated AR could finally get its time to shine in Season 4 as Warzone expert Isaac ‘IceManIsaac‘ Hamilton claims that recent buffs have made the weapon a top-tier option.

IceManIsaac claims that this weapon will not fly under the radar for much longer as it rivals the NZ-41, “The key thing about this build when compared to the NZ is less recoil, better bullet velocity, and a comparable time to kill.”

IceManIsaac Warzone KG M40 loadout

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: VDD 22G Padded
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 60 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Grip
  • Perk: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The KG M40 also caught the eye of JGOD as the stats specialist agrees with IceManIsaac’s assessment that the weapon’s recoil makes it one of the easiest to use for long-range gunfights.

In Season 4, the KG M40 had its minimum damage increased from 24 to 26, its recoil intensity adjusted to account for less reliance on Tight Grip, and many of its attachments got buffed.

Given the type of engagements you’ll be taking with the KG M40, attachments like Tight Grip, M1930 Strife Angled, and VDD 22G Padded focus on boosting control and accuracy.

IceManIsaac explains that the ability to equip a precision scope like the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x makes it superior to stable Modern Warfare ARs like the M13 that “doesn’t have a long-reaching optic where you can zoom across the map.”

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

We’ll start off this Warzone M13 loadout by improving the weapon’s effective damage range and bullet velocity with the help of the Monolithic Suppressor muzzle and Tempus Marksman barrel.

Next, we’ll equip the Commando Foregrip to remove almost all horizontal and vertical recoil. You can then use the  VLK 3.0x Optic as this is an unobtrusive scope that will allow you to pick off foes from a distance.

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 & Equipment to use with Warzone M13 class

Overkill in Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill

Players often use lethal equipment to get the upper hand in Warzone, and the E.O.D Perk will drastically reduce incoming explosive damage. You can use Overkill to pair the weapon up with a close-range SMG like the Marco 5.

The Amped Perk lets to instantly swap between your weapons. For our choice of Equipment, we went with the Semtex to dish out additional damage to multiple foes, and the Stim will grant you a health boost.
