Aydan in Warzone's Gulag

Call of Duty: Warzone’s miniaturized Nuketown Gulag has received its fair share of criticism from fans, but top player Aydan has discovered a wallbang spot that you can use to eliminate a spawn campers.

Warzone’s “new” Gulag is a smaller version of Nuketown that still faces criticism from fans, even after removing the controversial bug giving players an unfair advantage. Despite this, Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad is still experimenting within it.

He’s one of the top players in the battle royale, and can often be seen dominating Warzone tournaments. Now, he’s discovered a new wallbang spot that you can take advantage of when playing in the Gulag.

Aydan has been trying out different tactic in the new Gulag between events. He’s determined to find a way to master the area, and he made an interesting discovery during one of these experiments.

He came across a wild spot that you can effectively wallbang to take out a camping opponent. The player landed a shot at this opponent, and was left bewildered about how he managed to do that.

Aydan’s Snapshot Grenade helped him find his foe, who was mulling around their spawn in the corner. He then took the opportunity to line up his shot while aiming at a broken wooden door. Once he fired, something surprising happened.

The shot banged through the door and eliminated the camping enemy. This came as a surprise to both Aydan and his followers, as they weren’t aware that you could wallbang through the Gulag’s wooden structures.

The top player then shared another clip showcasing this same tactic in a more familiar wallbanging spot.

The wallbanging spot in the first clip is a new discovery for Warzone fans. This has led to speculation about other potential structures in the Gulag that can be shot through, which haven’t been found yet.

This can be a useful tactic to try out the next time you want to camp your spawn, or if you suspect your opponent is camping their spawn. Just aim your crosshairs at the structure, and then fire a shot through a door.

So, be sure to try experimenting the next time you drop into this Gulag, and see what cool discoveries you could make in Warzone!

The Minigun makes an unexpected return in Warzone Season 3

Following the release of the most recent update for Warzone, the Minigun made an unexpected return in Season 3 of the Call of Duty battle royale.

Warzone Minigun Season 3

The May 7, 2021 update for Warzone made some major changes to the Call of Duty battle royale, but it looks as though an unintended change regarding the Minigun made its way through into Season 3.

The Minigun was once a rare weapon that players could acquire in Warzone and mow down multiple enemies thanks to its high fire and large ammo count rate. However, the Minigun was eventually removed from the game, and players could no longer acquire the powerful weapon.

The absence of the Minigun in Warzone was unexpectedly ended on May 7, 2021, when Raven Software applied the most recent update for the Call of Duty battle royale, as players began to report that they were getting the Minigun from loot boxes on Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

Following the application of the May 7 update for Warzone, members of the community began to discuss how they were now able to find the MInigun in supply boxes when playing. It was at first unclear if this was an intended decision by Raven Software or if it something unintended that resulted from the most recent Warzone update.

Raven Software soon updated their official Trello board for issues that they are investigating with the game and stated they were investigating the Minigun spawning from supply boxes on Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

This confirmed that the Minigun was not supposed to make a return in Season 3.

The Warzone developer went on to post an announcement on its Twitter account that it had applied a playlist update to the Call of Duty battle royale that should prevent the Minigun from spawning in supply boxes but asked players to let them know if the Minigun return issue was still persisting following the playlist update.

While the return of the Minigun in Warzone Season 3 was not supposed to happen, there are sure to be some players who took advantage and were able to have some fun with the powerful weapon before Raven Software pushed the playlist update to stop the Minigun from spawning.

Unfortunately for these players, it looks as though the unexpected return of the Minigun in Warzone Season 3 was a short-lived experience for the community.

How Warzone devs decide which weapons to buff & nerf

Warzone’s developers, Raven Software, has explained how they decide which popular weapons to buff and nerf.

How Warzone devs decide which weapons to buff & nerf

Following Warzone’s update on May 7, Raven Software has explained their thought process behind buffing and nerfing some of the game’s most popular weapons.

Going into Warzone Season 3, Raven Software made some significant changes to the game’s most popular and powerful weapons. Over the course of Season 3, they have continued to stay on top of weapon balance, although some changes haven’t been as welcome by the community.

In the Season 3 patch notes, they teased a nerf to the CR-56 AMAX and then reaffirmed this nerf in their April 28 patch notes. This nerf didn’t sit well with high-profile members of the community, but as of May 7, it took effect, with the weapon’s damage being reduced by one.

In the May 7 patch notes, Warzone’s devs prefaced their list of weapon buffs and nerfs with some insight into their thought process before buffing and nerfing weapons.

Warzone AMAX

“There are millions of you, and when we reduce the effectiveness of a weapon, we are bound to make a change to someone’s favorite gun,” Raven Software explained. “As players of this game ourselves, it pains us just as much.”

They explained how they “remain torn” when nerfing a weapon, but they do it with the intent of promoting diversity.

Certain weapons, such as the DMR 14, FFAR 1, and AUG were so powerful that they were the only viable weapons, and using anything else would put you at a significant disadvantage. Raven said they believe “what makes a game truly engaging is choice,” and admitted that certain weapons diminished that choice.

However, they feel that the game is close to a “balance homeostasis” where most weapons “are at the very least viable.” But that leaves time to kill (TTK) as the final thing for them to address. They’re looking to have a higher time to kill across the board, or at least make it so that it will require skill to reach a low TTK.

Raven Software asked players to “consider these changes not as targeted attacks, but rather as part of a larger initiative to raise the skill ceiling.”

On top of the weapon nerfs in the recent updates, they have buffed the PPSH-41 and will be looking at buffing some of the “struggling” Modern Warfare weapons.

Warzone devs promise to buff “struggling” Modern Warfare weapons

Raven Software promised players in the most recent patch notes that it will be taking a look at struggling Modern Warfare weapons.

Warzone Modern Warfare Weapons Buff

In the most recent set of patch notes for Call of Duty: Warzone, Raven Software explained that they would be taking a look at struggling Modern Warfare weapons in the battle royale with an intention to buff them.

A large portion of Warzone’s life was only filled with weapons from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but this changed with the release and integration of Black Ops Cold War into the battle royale game.

This integration saw weapons from Black Ops Cold War dominate the meta and leave the vast majority of Modern Warfare weapons in the dust.

The most recent patch notes that Warzone developers Raven Software released on May 7, 2021, gave fans of the Modern Warfare weapons hope for the future.

In the May 7th, 2021 patch notes, Raven Software gave a detailed explanation of the latest round of changes that the studio made to Warzone that included a great deal of weapon balancing and changes to floor loot, which had been a major topic of discussion amongst players in Season 3.

One of the most interesting things that caught the community’s eyes in the patch notes for Warzone was near the end when Raven Software addressed concerns that they would only be making changes to Black Ops Cold War weapons and provided a tease of a Warzone Modern Warfare weapons buff.

“Finally, we would like to address concerns that we are only going to be making changes to Cold War weapons. In the future, we fully intend on taking a closer look at some of the Modern Warfare weapons that have been struggling,” said Raven Software.

The nerf of the CR-56 AMAX in the May 7 patch notes for Warzone is one of the first major changes that have been applied to Modern Warfare weapons since the integration of Black Ops Cold War into the Call of Duty battle royale.

With Call of Duty 2021 and future games planned to integrate into Warzone as the central hub of the franchise from now on, there have been concerns that fan-favorite weapons from past games would be forgotten and never touched by the developers in the future.

Raven Software has now made it clear that they do not intend to do this for the Modern Warfare weapons for at least the rest of the Black Ops Cold War cycle in Warzone.
