The C58 is one of Warzone’s most powerful weapons and with the right attachments and Perks, this gun will cut through enemies. We’ve got everything you need to build the best Warzone C58 loadout in Season 5.

Warzone’s Season 4’s C58 came crashing onto the scene, dominating all long-range Assault Rifle fights. In Season 5, it’s no longer the beast it once was, but in the hands of a skilled player, there are very few weapons that can contest it.

The C58 Assault Rifle deals high damage but does come with a slower fire rate than others in its class.

It also has a lower movement speed than most, but adding the right attachments can make this gun one of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone Season 5, so here is how to create the best Warzone C58 loadout.

Best Warzone C58 loadout

Best Warzone C58 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.5″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunaition: STANAG 55 Rnd / 45 Rnd Drum
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x

The Agency Suppressor is very useful on this Warzone weapon, as it not only keeps you off the minimap, but also improves Vertical Recoil Control, Bullet Velocity, and the gun’s Effective Damage Range, while the 18.5″ Task Force continues to improve on all of these attributes for the best Warzone C58 loadout.

Field Agent Grip also has a major effect on Horizontal and Vertical Recoil Control, while the STANAG 55 Rnd magazine will ensure you don’t run out of ammo in important gunfights when using the best Warzone C58 loadout. If you’re playing in Solos or Duos, you can also opt for the 45 Rnd Drum mag, as you don’t need as many bullets.

Finally, we recommend adding a scope to this gun to help you hit your shots over long range. We suggest the Axial Arms 3x for the best Warzone C58 loadout as it will really help you in medium-range engagements, while also having enough magnification to take out far-off targets.

Best Perks to use with Warzone C58 class

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

In terms of perks, we suggest sticking with E.O.D to deal with explosives that enemies are likely to throw at you, helping you to take less damage.

While the best Warzone C58 loadout is good up close, we think Overkill is necessary for this class, as we’ve built our loadout to focus on distance. Pairing the C58 with a sub-machine gun of your choice is probably a safe bet to cover you no matter the range. Once you’ve done that, make sure to pick up Ghost from a second loadout during the game.

Finally, Season 5’s new Combat Scout is great for players of any playstyle. It highlights enemies through walls and live pings them for your team, which is a powerful asset for any squad.

Most recent C58 buffs and nerfs

The best Warzone C58 loadout received a substantial nerf in August 20th’s Warzone update. This has lowered its popularity somewhat, but it still remains a powerful option.

  • C58 (BOCW)
    • Recoil increased
    • Max Damage Range decreased by 7.4%
    • ADS Speed decreased by 3.4%
    • Bullet Velocity decreased by 8.1%

This Black Ops Cold War Assault Rifle saw another nerf be applied to it in the Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update, which adjusted the recoil of the weapon.

You can find Raven Software’s explaination behind this change below:

“High damage Weapons like the C58 (BOCW) tend to adhere to a lower Rate of Fire and higher Recoil, which generally balances out their hasty Time to Kill potential. Much like the Krig 6 (BOCW), the C58 (BOCW) was a tad easier to control than we feel is appropriate for a Weapon with its damage profile. While “Recoil adjusted” can be rather nebulous, the exact details of these changes can often be difficult to quantify with numbers alone. While the C58’s (BOCW) Recoil has been increased slightly, the majority of this change will be felt in the Recoil Pattern deviation. When this deviation is increased, it can create subtle shifts which become increasingly difficult to compensate for given distance from the target.”

How to unlock the C58

Now that Season 4 has concluded, players will be able to unlock the C58 for free by completing a challenge:

  • Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer/ Warzone: Using Assault Rifles, get a Long Shot kill in 15 different completed matches.
  • Cold War Zombies: Using Assault Rifles, kill 50 Special enemies that are slowed by your LT53 Kazimir portal

This is especially simple in Warzone, where many fights are decided at range. We recommend the Krig 6 for this challenge, as its low recoil makes it easy to beam enemies at range.

Best alternatives

If you’re looking for a best Warzone C58 loadout alternative, the QBZ-83 is a surprisingly powerful choice, and we called it the most underrated weapon. Also, Season 5’s EM2 is a great option, whilst the Kar98k and Swiss K31 are still the kings of Sniper Rifles.

Aydan shows off “overpowered” Warzone Gulag jump spot

Warzone pro Aydan has found a useful jump spot in the Season 6 Gulag that you can use to get the drop on your enemies.

Published

on

Call of Duty superstar Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad likes to make use of different strategies, and he has shown off an “overpowered” Warzone Gulag spot that players can take advantage of for better shots.

Warzone Season 6 introduced plenty of new content and brought back the OG Gulag to Verdansk. Players often struggle in the Gulag because it’s challenging, so they have to strategize.

Warzone star Aydan made use of a specific jump spot in the Showers Gulag that grants players a tactical advantage over their opponents and lets them take the enemy by surprise.

Aydan was battling his opponent in the Gulag for the chance to jump back into Verdansk. In his stream, he was able to secure victory by employing a brilliant tactic that’s become possible in the new Warzone season.

Players can now climb on top of a Shower and nobody in the Gulag will expect you to be up there. This seems to be a new addition in Season 6, and the verticality gave Aydan a huge advantage.

He was able to shoot his opponent through the bars after heading to the jump spot on top of the Showers and come out of the Gulag victorious.

Since this is a fairly new change, many players are probably not aware that it’s possible to try out this tactic. However, Aydan has a fairly huge following, so we expect this to change soon.

In fact, a few other players have already started sharing their own experiences with this trick among the rest of the community. One player posted a similar clip to Aydan’s in the Warzone subreddit.

After jumping on the showers, they were able to shoot down their enemy from above and win the Gulag. Many of the commenters were shocked to see this new change but welcomed it.

You can easily try out this trick to take your enemies by surprise the next time you’re in the Gulag. There are also some other top tips that you can remember to win Season 6 Gulag every time.

Warzone Season 6’s 10 most popular weapon loadouts

The most popular Warzone weapon loadouts in Season 6 have been revealed, so here’s the top 10, and their most popular attachments.

Published

on

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6’s most popular weapons and their attachments have been revealed, so we’re counting down the top ten loadouts as of October 18, 2021.

As is standard for Warzone, the meta is constantly changing. Updates in Season 6 hit some of the most powerful and popular weapons hard, so a new, open meta has formed.

Warzone’s devs have explained how they’re trying to lower time to kill across the board to increase the skill gap and did so by decreasing the damage of some of the most powerful weapons.

This has caused a major change in certain weapon’s popularity, and thanks to WZRanked.com, we can see Warzone Season 6’s most popular weapons: so we’re counting down the top ten, along with the most popular attachments.

Warzone’s most popular guns & loadouts

10. FARA 83 – 4.04%

The FARA 83 has come and gone from the meta as the seasons go on, but its place in the meta is currently up in the air. It climbed to popularity after the Krig was nerfed in Season 5 Reloaded, but also took a hit in the September 15 update.

Even though it’s not the absolute laserbeam it once was, it’s still one of the best Assault Rifles in Season 6. It’s an excellent combination of accuracy and damage, being a great middle-ground between the AK-47 and XM4.

Most popular FARA 83 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd

9. Cold War MP5 – 4.05%

Black Ops Cold War’s MP5 has never really cemented its place in the meta, with a plethora of buffs and nerfs allowing other weapons to take its place.

However, the OTs 9 and Bullfrog have undergone slight nerfs, opening up the meta. Cold War’s MP5 still hasn’t replaced these two SMGs but has re-entered the top ten most popular thanks to its close-range slaying potential and manageable recoil.

Most popular Cold War MP5 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd Drum

8. Bullfrog – 4.40%

The Bullfrog was previously the most popular SMG but after Raven Software nerfed its mobility, its fallen down the pecking order slightly.

Still, with a large magazine size and high headshot damage multiplier, the Bullfrog suits a wide range of skill levels and playstyles. If you’re an aggressive sniper, the Bullfrog is an excellent option for Sniper Support.

Most popular Bullfrog Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.4″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip

7. Grau 5.56 – 4.76%

When Warzone was first released in March 2020, the Grau 5.56 was king. With almost no recoil and the cleanest Iron Sight the game had to offer, almost every player ran the Grau. Now in Season 6, it has avoided the nerfs that have hit other ARs, so has remained a popular choice.

The majority of players now use the Grau as their ‘Fully Loaded’ weapon, which they can take to get full ammo when grabbing a loadout after returning from the Gulag.

Most popular Bullfrog Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags
  • Perk: Fully Loaded

6. XM4 – 5.10%

After some of the most popular weapons such as the Stoner 63 and EM2 were brought down, the XM4 has climbed back into the meta.

The XM4 has always been a solid choice thanks to its decent TTK and low recoil. It’s much easier to use than the AK-47, so maybe a better choice for the majority of players. And with only a few attachment changes, the XM4 can become a great close-range weapon too.

  • Muzzle: Agency Supressor
  • Barrel: 13.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 60 Rnd

5. MAC-10 – 5.12%

Boasting an incredibly fast fire rate, rapid TTK, and next to no recoil, the MAC-10 is the obvious choice for a secondary weapon in Warzone Season 6.

When paired with a long-range Assault Rifle such as the AK-47, or a Sniper like the Kar98k, the MAC-10 is the perfect pocket weapon. Even though the MAC-10 was nerfed months ago via Season 4’s Reloaded update, it has barely dropped in popularity.

Most popular MAC-10 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

4. OTs 9 – 6.03%

Although previously underrated, many players have now learned of the OTs 9’s power. Both JGOD and NICKMERCS have sung its praises in the past, and Raven has nerfed it several times.

The OTs 9’s kill-to-death ratio is a testament to its power, with the most popular loadout boasting almost a 2 K/D. The nerfs don’t appear to have tamed the beast, and the OTs 9 is Warzone Season 6’s most popular SMG.

Most popular OTs 9 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 8.1″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Ammunition: VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag

3. Cold War AK-47 – 8.32%

With all of the weapons that got nerfed in the most recent update, Cold War’s AK-47 has returned to the meta. It has always been a powerful choice but the damage profile and recoil control of some of the other Assault Rifles pushed it back from the top spot.

Now, however, the AK-47 is one of the best weapons in the game. With controllable recoil and solid damage, it’s well worth giving the AK another chance. Plus, it’s especially effective in the Iron Trials 84 mode, where players have even more health.

Most popular Cold War AK-47 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd

2. Swiss K31 – 8.79%

Raven Software has been hard at work fine-tuning Cold War’s Sniper Rifles in Warzone and now, they seem to have got the Swiss K31 into a great spot.

Its direct counterpart is the Kar98k, as they’re both quick and highly versatile snipers. Not much sets the two apart now, and some even prefer the Swiss. Its high bullet velocity means that you hardly need to lead shots, and its magazine gives it a solid reload time compared to the Kar98k.

Most popular Swiss K31 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 24.9″ Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Grip

1. Kar98k – 9.41%

If you’re looking for a fast Sniper Rifle that’s easy to use, the Kar98k is the weapon for you. Although technically a Marksman Rifle, this bolt-action WW2 rifle is arguably Warzone’s best sniper.

The Kar98k has a solid ADS speed, and with its high bullet velocity, you’ll find it much easier to use than most other Sniper Rifles. You can effectively quickscope in close-range situations, and by leading your targets, hit some nasty longshots.

The Kar98k is the better choice for controller players, as TrueGameData discovered that it has more aim assist than the Swiss.

Most popular Kar98k Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″ Barrel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

If you’re yet to use any of these weapons in Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island, give them a try with these attachments.

How to fix Packet Loss & Packet Burst in Warzone Season 6

Packet Loss and Packet Burst have been giving Warzone Season 6 players serious connection issues, so here are some solutions for the issue.

Published

on

Packet Loss and Packet Burst have been a continuous problem for Call of Duty: Warzone players, so here are some solutions to fix your connection problems and reduce stuttering and lag in Season 6.

Although Warzone Season 6 has brought some much-need updates to the game’s map and weapon balance, more and more players have been reporting connection issues. Packet Loss and Packet Burst, marked by the yellow or red squares on the left of your screen, will make your game feel laggy and stuttery.

There are many reasons you could be receiving Packet Loss and Packet Burst on Warzone and it could be fixed by simply using a wired connection, or it may be a deeper problem with your game files.

No solution is guaranteed to be the be-all and end-all fix, but some of these solutions may help to alleviate your problems.

Use a wired connection

Using a wired connection may seem like an obvious solution, but it can do wonders in fixing lag and Packet Loss. Connecting your console or PC to your router with an ethernet cable will be faster, cause less interference, and generally be more secure than using a wireless connection.

If you were already using a wired connection, or this hasn’t helped the problem, read on for more possible solutions.

Set your NAT Type to Open

You’ll have one of three NAT (Network Address Translation) Types: Open, Moderate, or Strict (Xbox and PC), or Type 1, Type 2, or Type 3 (PlayStation). Ideally, you want your NAT Type to be at Open/Type 1 to get the most reliable connection while playing Warzone.

If your NAT Type is set to Moderate/Type 2 or Strict/Type 3, you can troubleshoot the issue and fix the problem. This solution, called ‘Port Forwarding’, comes from Activision Support.

  1. Type in your routers IP address into your browser
  2. Log in to your router using either the router’s default username or password, or the one you created yourself
  3. Find your router’s ‘Port Forwarding’ section
  4. Put the IP address of your PC or console in the correct box in your router
  5. Enter the correct TCP and UDP ports for your game in the corresponding boxes. Here are all of the required port codes:
  • PC
    • TCP: 3074,27014-27050
    • UDP: 3074,3478,4379-4380,27000-27031,27036
  • PlayStation 4
    • TCP: 1935,3478-3480
    • UDP: 3074,3478-3479
  • Xbox One
    • TCP: 3074
    • UDP: 88,500,3074-3075,3544,4500
  • PlayStation 5
    • TCP: 1935,3478-3480
    • UDP: 3074,3478-3479
  • Xbox Series X|S
    • TCP: 3074
    • UDP: 88,500,3074-3075,3544,4500

This will open your ports, and allow Call of Duty: Warzone to have an open NAT Type, making for a more reliable connection, and hopefully alleviate Packet Loss and Packet Bursts.

Set the correct number of cores (PC only)

This solution is also tried and tested for fixing low FPS issues in Warzone, but there are reports it can also fix Packet Burst problems.

Modern Warfare’s files can sometimes default to an incorrect value for how many cores your system has. This causes hitching and stuttering, and will likely be the cause of Packet Burst.

Here’s how to set the correct core value for Modern Warfare/Warzone:

  1. Open ‘Task Manager’ and select the ‘Performance’ tab
  2. Click on ‘CPU’ and on the right you’ll see how many cores your PC has (e.g 6)
  3. Open ‘Modern Warfare’ in ‘Documents’
  4. Select the ‘players’ folder
  5. Click on ‘adv_options’
  6. Set the ‘RenderWorkerCount’ to equal your number of cores
  7. Save and Exit and you should see a marked improvement in Warzone performance
  8. If note, read on for more methods

Check your drivers are up to date (PC only)

There are also some reports that ensuring your drivers are up to date will reduce Packet Loss and Packet Burst. An out-of-date driver can cause many issues, including low FPS, so it’s worth checking out anyway.

Here’s how to check that your drivers are up to date.

How to update NVIDIA graphics driver

If you have an NVIDIA graphics card, the GeForce experience app will handle this for you.

  1. Download ‘GeForce’ experience through NVIDIA.com
  2. Open ‘GeForce Experience’
  3. Select the ‘Drivers’ tab
  4. Click ‘check for updates’ in the upper right corner
  5. If an update is available, follow the steps

How to update AMD graphics driver

If you have an AMD GPU, you can use the Radeon Settings to update your drivers.

  1. Right-click on your desktop
  2. Select ‘AMD Radeon Settings’
  3. Click on the ‘Home’ icon
  4. Click ‘New Updates’ on the bottom left
  5. Select ‘check for update’
  6. If an update is available, follow the steps

Hopefully one of these solutions has fixed your Packet Loss and Packet Burst issues in Modern Warfare and Warzone!

Raven Software is yet to officially address the issues players have been having, so stay tuned to Charlie INTEL for all Call of Duty updates.
