Best perks to use in Call of Duty: Warzone

Every CoD loadout needs the best perks to match, so here are the best perks to use in Warzone Season 1’s Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Published

A CoD loadout is nothing without the upgrades to match, so here are the best perks to give you a competitive edge in any Warzone game mode.

While Warzone is now a standalone game, it is still connected to Modern Warfare. It uses its engine, menus, movement system, and perks. In Warzone Season 1, none of the perks from Black Ops Cold War can be used, so you must equip Modern Warfare’s.

Here are the best perks to use in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 1.

Perk 1

CoD Warzone EOD perk

E.O.D

E.O.D reduces explosive damage taken, which makes it a vital Perk in Call of Duty: Warzone. If you’re stuck in a room with players outside, expect a barrage of Semtex and Frag Grenades coming at you. If you have any hope of surviving, you need to have E.O.D equipped.

As long as you have a sliver of armor left, you can survive any explosive other than a direct hit, so keep putting on plates and you’ll be invulnerable.

Double Time

Double Time allows you to Tactical Sprint for longer, as well as crouch walk faster. Mobility is key for pushing enemies and avoiding the closing circle of gas.

In solos, you need to be the first person in the next zone and Double Time will allow you to quickly move around the map without a vehicle revealing your location. The increased crouch walk speed also gives you high mobility while sneaking up on enemies.

Perk 2

CoD Warzone Overkill perk

Overkill

With Verdansk having both long lines of sight and close-quarters combat, most players bring both a long-range and up-close weapon in their loadout. The Warzone meta following the DMR nerf is a Kar98k paired with either an FFAR or MAC-10.

Use Overkill to get both weapons in your first loadout for effectiveness at all ranges, then take either Ghost or Restock from your next loadout crate and you’ll have the best of both worlds.

Ghost

Ghost is probably the most used perk in Warzone. With UAV’s constantly being popped, and almost every player running a heartbeat sensor, keeping yourself off the radar is vital.

You can sneak up on teams and make a quick getaway if you’re in a tight spot. Or, if you’re a building camper (no judgments here), listen to your enemy’s rage in the death chatter as you take them by surprise.

Restock

CoD Warzone Restock perk

Restock is only useful if you’re an extremely confident, aggressive player. If you’re driving around the map taking out bounty target after bounty target, Restock is a must-pick. Starting a fight with a well-placed Stun Grenade will almost always give you the kill, and Restock allows you to get your equipment back every 50 seconds.

You’ll lose out on the Ghost perk, but if you’re driving at enemies to take them out as quickly as possible, then Ghost really won’t be necessary.

Perk 3

Amped

As Gaz said in Call of Duty 4, “switching to your pistol is always faster than reloading.” This remains true in Warzone over a decade later, and the Amped perk makes this all the more effective.

There’s nothing worse than running out of ammo and watching helplessly as you’re taken out while either switching weapons or reloading. Amped allows you to almost instantly swap weapons so you can keep shooting with minimal delay.

Tracker

CoD Warzone Tracker perk

This perk is especially effective in solo matches, where you’ll usually only be focusing on a single player at a time. This perk allows you to see the enemy’s footsteps so you know if someone has been nearby recently. With how slow and tactical solo matches can be, you’ll be surprised how many times it will save your skin.

Best perks for Warzone solos

Warzone solos is almost an entirely different game from squads, where you must quickly rotate into new zones and know where enemy players are in order to survive. Here are the best perks to get that solo victory.

  1. Double Time
  2. Ghost
  3. Tracker

Best perks for Warzone squads (duos/trios/quads)

In Warzone quads, you’ll be fighting multiple enemies at once so you’ll need E.O.D to survive multiple explosions and Amped to avoid reloading mid-fight.

  1. E.O.D
  2. Overkill then Ghost
  3. Amped

Run these perks along with the meta weapons, and you’ll be putting yourself at a significant advantage in both Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Warzone: New Roze skin glitch makes player heads invisible

A new glitch with the Roze skin in CoD: Warzone is making the head of her player model completely invisible to other players.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

A new glitch with the Roze skin in Warzone is making the head of the player model completely invisible.

It appears that a new bug has appeared in Warzone for the highly debated “Near Dark” Roze skin. Up to now, players have complained that the skin is essentially “pay to win”, as it is very hard to spot in dark areas of the map.

Now, there is a bug where the already hard-to-spot player model can have her head appear completely invisible, per a tweet from Twitter user @conne90.

In the video, whenever the Roze skin takes out her Heartbeat sensor, her head completely disappears, making her not only a hard target to spot but also nearly impossible to headshot.

We’re unsure if players will actually still be able to land a headshot while her head is not visible, but we can safely assume this is a game-breaking glitch, as it can be used to gather intel from head glitches while remaining unseen.

For example, if a player peeks over a building, staircase or ledge, they can simply pull out their heartbeat sensor and have their head completely invisible to enemy players. We’re unsure if this bug is platform specific, so be sure to let us know @charlieINTEL on Twitter if you can replicate this bug.

For the time being, we just recommend players stay vigilant, as there isn’t really much that can be done to combat this exploit. Fortunately, players cannot shoot while Roze’s head is invisible, so this isn’t a bug that will ruin normal Warzone games.

In most lobbies, we don’t expect this bug to destroy competitive integrity, but perhaps some higher skilled players will choose to intentionally or unintentionally abuse this to gain information.

We’ll update if we hear any more about this bug, or if it becomes widespread. Be on the lookout.

Teasers suggest Zombies to takeover Warzone’s Verdansk

Zombies may be taking over the rest of Warzone’s Verdansk map over the next few weeks, as teased via a video from Call of Duty.

Black Ops Cold War's Warzone - Shipwreck

Zombies may be taking over Warzone’s Verdansk map in the coming weeks, as teased in a video on Call of Duty’s Twitter.

It appears that the Zombie infestation at Verdansk’s new Shipwreck location could be spreading across the map, which would match earlier theories that the Zombie horde would periodically spread as Season 2 continues.

Before the launch of Season 2, we saw a teaser of the Zombies in Verdansk’s Hospital location, which showcased a model of the Trials machine from Black Ops Cold War Zombies.

Forwarding to Season 2, the ship Vodyanoy finally reached the shores of Verdansk, then becoming a Shipwreck location for players to land at. In this POI, players could find a fully functional Zombies Trial machine, which would prompt Zombies to spawn in the Shipwreck area as part of a small event that players could redeem for a reward with a Yellow Keycard.

Now over a week after the launch of Season 2, Call of Duty posted a video to their Twitter account, signifying that the Zombie horde is headed deeper into Verdansk.

In the video, we see footage from Verdansk’s own BCH-4 news station, reporting that the Zombies are now venturing out of the Shipwreck, perhaps into the Prison or Port area. A reporter, Mike Field is seen in the footage in a helicopter overlooking the Shipwreck, before being shot down. You can watch the full video below.

Hopefully in the coming days we see where the undead are headed. Perhaps they’ll hop between different areas of the map as time goes on, or maybe they’ll be multiple areas infested with the Zombies at once.

If rumors hold up, each new area should have a Zombies Trial computer, with a short quest to do for rewards. Players may be able to use the hordes as a distraction when in gunfights with other teams, so we’re sure to be in for some interesting strategies.

Stay tuned for more information, we’ll report as soon as more is available.

Call of Duty: Warzone best weapons

Here are the current best weapons and loadouts you should be using right now in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2; list is updated regularly.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s meta changes quite often, with every new season bringing new weapons and balance updates to existing ones. With the release of the Black Ops Cold War x Warzone integration, many weapons have risen to the top.

To be the best, you should always be leveling up and using the top weapons in the game. The most powerful, consistent, and accurate ones are always front and center in the arsenal of the best players in the game.

Here’s the most meta weapons, as of Black Ops Cold War’s Warzone Season 2.

#1 – FFAR

FFAR best Warzone loadout

The FFAR is currently the fastest killing automatic weapon in Warzone. It has a fast fire rate, high damage output, and a ton of recoil.

Once you master the art of movement and recoil control, you’ll be able to destroy any enemy in mere seconds. If you’re skilled enough, you can outplay entire squads of enemies all by yourself. Here’s the best loadout:

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

#2 – MAC-10

MAC-10 Best Warzone Loadout

The MAC-10 is an ultra-powerful close-range machine, that even has some effectiveness at medium range. Like the FFAR, it has a fast fire rate with decent recoil. Master this SMG to be the most effective close-range fighter.

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

#3 – KAR-98K

KAR98-K Best Warzone Loadout

The KAR-98K is the best Marksman Rifle in Warzone, by far. It has near-instant aim-down-sight speeds, great range, and a highly useful Variable Zoom Scope. Currently, there is a bug regarding the Presence of Mind perk that allows players to hold their breath for insane amounts of time.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Variable Zoom Scope
  • Perk: Presence of Mind

#4 – CR-56 AMAX

CR- 56 AMAX Best Warzone Loadout

Looking for a dominant medium-range Assault Rifle? Look no further than the CR-56 AMAX. Aim high for quick kills on foes. The VLK optic makes for easy targeting at long-range – just make sure you compensate for the high recoil. High risk, high reward.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic

#5 – Kilo 141

Kilo 141- Best Warzone Loadout

The Kilo 141 is the ol’ reliable of Warzone. It’s consistent at range, easy to use, and has low recoil. If you know someone who’s new to Warzone, or you’re not a fan of recoil yourself, this is your optimal weapon.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic (Can replace with Corp Combat Holo)
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

#6 – AUG (Black Ops Cold War)

AUG - Black Ops Cold War Loadout

The AUG is a burst-fire beast capable of downing enemies in just 2 well-placed bursts. Be sure to aim for the head at range. Turning enemies into swiss cheese has never been easier. As long as you have the accuracy and trigger-discipline, this is your weapon.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.2″ Strike Team
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Drum
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip

#7 – Bruen

The Bruen is a heavy-hitting LMG, perfect for long range and medium range combat. Its 60 round magazine ensures you won’t run out of ammo fast, and you’ll always stay on target with how stable this weapon is under heavy fire.

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – XRK Summit 26.8″
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mag
  • Laser – Tac Laser
  • Optic – Corp Combat Holo Sight

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

This has been our take for the best weapons currently available in Warzone’s meta. You can use all these weapons for high-kill games or slow-paced wins.

Good luck out in the Warzone! Stay tuned to @charlieINTEL for any updates regarding CoD: Warzone or Black Ops Cold War.
