The CR-56 AMAX is a formidable Assault Rifle thanks to major buffs, so here are all of the attachments, Perks, and Equipment that you can use to make the best AMAX loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

The CR-56 AMAX Assault Rifle’s popularity declined when it was nerfed back in Season 2 Reloaded, but the new Modern Warfare weapon buffs have brought the weapon back to the meta in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

It’s one of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone thanks to its impressive damage and range and you can make it into an absolute powerhouse by equipping the right selection of attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Here’s the best CR-56 AMAX loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout attachments

Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mag

We’ll start off our Warzone CR-56 AMAX by equipping the Monolithic Suppressor muzzle and XRK Zodiac S440 barrel to improve its effective damage range, making it ideal for medium-range combat.

The Commando Foregrip will give a boost to both aiming and recoil stability, at the cost of a little movement speed, and the VLK 3.0x Optic is a great optic choice thanks to its 3.0x magnification.

Finally, we’ll cap off the best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout with the 45 Round Mag to ensure that you have enough ammunition to eliminate multiple opponents in Caldera, Rebirth Island, and Fortune’s Keep.

Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX Perks and Equipment

E.O.D perk in Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stims

Enemies will often throw Grenades, Thermites, and other explosives your way in Caldera, Rebirth Island, and Fortune’s Keep so we recommend equipping the E.O.D Perk for its protection from explosive damage.

You can pick Overkill as your second Perk in order to pair the CR-56 AMAX with a close-range SMG like the H4 Blixen. For your final Perk, you should go with Amped as it allows you to change to your secondary weapon almost instantly.

Equipment-wise, Throwing Knives are a solid option for quick eliminations in tight situations, while Stims give you a much-needed health and speed boost if you find yourself taking too much damage in battle.

How to unlock CR-56 AMAX in Warzone

The CR-56 AMAX is locked behind a challenge that requires you to score 3 gunbutt kills with an Assault Rifle in 10 different matches. This is particularly easy to do in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer game modes.

Alternatively, if you only play Warzone, you can also complete this challenge in the Plunder or Clash modes. Once the conditions have been met, this weapon will be added to your inventory.

Best CR-56 AMAX alternatives in Warzone

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout, then you should absolutely try out the Kilo 141 again as it entered the meta once more alongside the M13.

If you prefer Vanguard weapons, the extremely accurate KG M40 is a solid choice.

How to unlock RA 225 SMG in Warzone & Vanguard Season 5

Warzone and Vanguard’s new Season 5 SMG is set to deliver incredible mobility and a fast fire rate, so here’s how to unlock the RA 225.

RA 255 SMG Warzone Vanguard Season 5

The RA 225 SMG is making its way to Vanguard and Warzone during Season 5, and the weapon’s speed in tight spaces should be a valuable addition to both games.

With Season 5 set to act as the final chapter of Vanguard and Warzone before players move on to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, the RA 225 will be one of the last weapons to enter the fold.

We’ve seen a ton of post-launch Vanguard SMGs join the pool of weapons over the seasons, and it’s only right that players receive one final SMG before saying goodbye.

The new SMG will rely on a high fire rate and excellent mobility to dominate Season 5 of Warzone and Vanguard, so here’s how to unlock the RA 225.

How to unlock the RA 225 SMG in Warzone & Vanguard

Warzone and Vanguard’s RA 225 SMG will arrive at the start of Season 5 on August 24, and it will be available through the Battle Pass. At the moment, we don’t know the exact tier that the weapon will become available, but it should be either 15 or 31 according to previous seasons.

The RA 225 SMG will be one of two weapons arriving via the Season 5 Battle Pass, with the EX1 being the other. These two weapons should be free unlocks that occupy tiers 15 and 31 of the Battle Pass.

Menendez and Al-Asad in Warzone Season 5

The Call of Duty blog for the Season 5 roadmap explains that “this SMG has a high fire rate and a very mobile compact frame.” The RA 225 is a lightweight SMG, which means it should provide excellent mobility for those looking to finesse opponents in Warzone Season 5.

Although it does come with quick handling, its fast fire rate means that while it will be devastating in close-range gunfights, you will have to manage some upward recoil kick that the RA 225 displays.

Its base form doesn’t boast the highest firepower possible, but with the right attachments, you should be able to increase its damage and recoil control to your liking.

Warzone Pacific Season 5 brings the Heroes vs Villains event to celebrate the arrival of classic Call of Duty baddies. Here’s everything you need to know about the event, including the Faction Tokens, gameplay, and free rewards.

Modern Warfare 2 is almost here, and Warzone Pacific is going out with a fiery bang in Season 5. Classic villains have brought weapons from the original Modern Warfare 2 and Advanced Warfare, setting up the new Heroes vs Villains Community Event.

Here’s everything we know about Warzone Season 5’s Heroes vs Villains event so far, including its gameplay, Faction Tokens, Faction Bundles, and free rewards.

The Heroes vs Villains event will take over all of Warzone Season 5, where players must pick whether they want to support the Heroes or Villains.

Faction Tokens appear in every mode, and it sounds like players must use these to help decide which team will come out on top. During this event, players can earn free rewards such as Calling Cards and Blueprints.

Warzone Faction Tokens explained

When playing any Warzone game mode during the Heroes vs Villains event, players can collect either Villain or Hero Tokens by “eliminating opponents and scavenging Supply Boxes.”

These Tokens will offer a discount on Faction Bundles at Buy Stations, and purchasing them will offer a discount on any other item from the Buy Station.

Details are sparse at the moment, but it sounds like these Faction Bundles will act like Donation Boards in Fortnite, where players spend cash to vote on an item they want to return. In Warzone, it sounds like players will be voting for whether they want the Heroes or Villains to win by the end of the event.

At the end of the Heroes vs Villains Warzone event, every player will be awarded a unique Weapon Blueprint based on the winning team — Heroes or Villains.

That’s not all though, as like any other Warzone event there are free cosmetics to earn by completing challenges. Here’s every reward confirmed so far:

  • Legendary animated “One vs. One” Calling Card
  • Hero’s or Villain’s Weapon Charm
  • “Conflict Spike” Melee Weapon Blueprint
  • “Time Duality” Watch
  • More

Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 will introduce five new weapons to the game and here’s how you can get your hands on the EX1.

Both Warzone and Vanguard are heading into their final season ahead of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.

The Season 5 update is looking to bring an end to the seasonal updates with a bang, introducing a new Rage Serum Field Upgrade, classic characters as Operators, and an Umbrella Academy crossover.

As well as this, players will be getting five new weapons, one of which is the EM1 from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which has been renamed the EX1. For this interested in unlocking this “prototype Energy Rifle,” here’s everything you need to know.

How to unlock the EX1 in Warzone & Vanguard

The EX1 will be available for players upon launch of Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 as part of the Battle Pass.

Although it is not yet confirmed, we are expecting the EX1 to be the Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 Battle Pass tier 15 or 31 unlock.

For those familiar with EM1 from Advanced Warfare, the EX1 will be an energy Assault Rifle with unlimited ammo and an overheat mechanic which acts as a reload. It will also have an extremely fast fire rate with mediocre damage output.

According to the Call of Duty blog, the EX1 is “effective at long range,” and will also have “options for every scenario.” There are various attachments for the EX1 that can alter its behavior, turning it into a burst weapon with the “Burst Barrel,” or a sniper with the “Charge Sniper Barrel.”
