Here are the best Black Ops Cold War weapons you should be using right now in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Warzone is filled with all weapons from both Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare. If you’ve just purchased a copy of this year’s newest CoD installment from Treyarch, we’re willing to bet you want to give the Black Ops Cold War weapons a try. Here are the most powerful ones for you to use in the Warzone.

All of the selected weapons are hand-picked from the current meta and based on the most popular weapons professional Warzone players are using. This list will be updated regularly with each new Season.

#1 – FFAR

FFAR Assault Rifle - Black Ops Cold War Warzone

Trusty, powerful, and deadly up-close, the FFAR is the weapon to use if you want great strafe speed and amazing time to kill at medium and close range. The FFAR has a tremendous kick, so the huge learning curve will be controlling this beast at range while also maintaining your movement.

  • Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel – 21.2″ Ranger
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition – Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag
  • Stock – Raider Stock

#2 – MAC-10

MAC-10 SMG: CoD Warzone

Meet your new favorite sidekick in the Warzone. Meet the “Bullet Hose”… erm, the MAC-10. This weapon is absolute insanity, capable of wiping enemies in an instant up close and even from afar. We don’t want to use the word “overpowered,” but if any gun is close to that, it’s this.

  • Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel – 5.9″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition – STANAG 53 Round Drum
  • Stock – SAS Combat Stock

#3 – DMR 14

DMR-14: CoD Warzone

Even after many nerfs, the DMR is still an amazing weapon to use in Warzone. Aim high, spray meticulously, and you’ll surely be taking down enemies in a breeze. If you’re on a mouse & keyboard, this might be your best fit.

  • Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel – 16.3″ Titanium
  • Optic – Visiontech 2x
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition – Salvo 40 Round Fast Mag

#4 – M16

M16 - Black Ops Cold War Warzone

Burst-fire destruction is the highlight of the M16. With solid accuracy, you can down enemies in just two bursts, leading to crazy moments of wiping players quickly. Aim for the head, as headshots do significantly more damage than body shots.

  • Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel – 15.9″ Strike Team
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Optic – Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition – Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag

#5 – Diamatti

Looking for a pistol to run as a trusty side-arm in a Ghost class or just to have for close encounters? Look no further than the Diamatti.

Many players opt to use them dual-wield, but we find that it’s less accurate when going for those headshots. Just one Diamatti is plenty. You can consistently down enemies in three bursts.

  • Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel – 7.2″ Task Force
  • Laser – Steady Aim Laser
  • Ammunition – Salvo 30 Round Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip – Dropshot Wrap

#6 – AUG

Like its M16 counterpart, the AUG is a burst fire beast. Pair this up with an FFAR for CQC or a MAC-10 if you don’t want to deal with sharing an ammo pool between weapons. Be sure to aim for the head, as you may be able to take down enemies with just 2 bursts.

  • Muzzle – Agency Silencer
  • Barrel – 18.2″ Strike Team
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 45 Round Drum
  • Optic – Axial Arms 3x

#7 – LW3 – Tundra

The LW3 Tundra (or Tundra for short), is a high powered sniper capable of stable shots at long range, crippling any opponent you come in contact with. Stay alert and stay at range, as you’ll be able to soften up enemies before a close-range engagement can even begin.

  • Muzzle – Wrapped Suppressor
  • Barrel – 29.1″ Combat Recon
  • Underbarrel – Bruiser Grip
  • Ammunition – Salvo 9 Round Fast Mag
  • Stock – Raider Pad

Best Perks for COD Warzone

In order to optimize your perks, we’re going to recommend the two loadout strategy for any game. On the first loadout, your perk 2 should be overkill to get you your two preferred weapons.

On the second loadout, pick up a loadout with Ghost or Restock for lethals and tacticals, depending on your preferences. Here’s the perk rundown:

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost/Restock
  • Perk 3: Amped

There you have it! Our current favorite picks for Black Ops Cold War weapons in Warzone. Be sure to tweet us @CharlieIntel if you enjoyed any of these loadouts, or if they helped you score a win or high-kill game.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

Raven Software has dropped a preview of some changes coming to Call of Duty: Warzone with the Season 3 update.

The studio responded to a big Twitter thread by YouTuber CourageJD. Courage dropped a list of major changes he wants to see to bring Warzone back to a better place, especially with a lot of the fan complaints.

Raven Software replied to CourageJD’s thread with a preview of some of the changes the studio is making to Call of Duty: Warzone soon, including many coming with Season 3 update on April 22.

Warzone Season 3 Updates

  • An adjustment to Roze
  • A significant balance pass to weapons such as the Tac Rifle Charlie, M16, FFAR 1, and Sykov
  • Fix for MW weapon perks + sniper glint
  • Change to how you acquire the RC-XD

Many of the changes listed above are some of the big complaints players have had over the last few months in Warzone. Roze skin having almost an invisibility look in the dark has been big for players, and Raven has finally acknowledged that.

The latest weapon addition for Warzone, the Sykov Pistol from the Modern Warfare universe, was added on April 15 and instantly became overpowered. Raven now confirms a nerf is coming for it.

The studio also told Courage that they want to “reassure” fans that all feedback is being read around Warzone.

More Surprises To Come

Raven has promised in another tweet that there are more “surprises” in store for Season 3 that will be announced with the update.

Other changes expected for Season 3 is a revamp of Verdansk map, which will see the map be transported and rebuilt for the 1980s Black Ops Cold War era.
