The race to find the new best SMG in Warzone is finally underway. The Sten hasn’t been the most popular pick but it definitely deserves consideration when equipped with the correct attachments that produce the best Sten loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Warzone Pacific Season 1’s mid-season update went live on January 13, bringing several weapon balancing changes, as well as the brand new Welgun SMG.

Excellent short-range options for Warzone Pacific are few and far between which makes the search for the MP-40’s successor quite challenging. The Sten is starting to gain some traction as an underrated pick due to its excellent fire rate. You’ll need the best Sten loadout to get the most out of the weapon and we’ve got you covered.

Best Warzone Sten loadout attachments

Sten loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: SA 65mm Rapid
  • Optic: SA 32S
  • Stock: Hockenson S33S Padded
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 9mm 50 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Incendiary
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Quick

Upon first use, the Sten may seem difficult to control but once you get the hang of its recoil pattern, you’ll enjoy the benefits of its excellent fire rate. For starters, we’ll max out the fire rate by adding the SA 65mm Rapid barrel.

This weapon is definitely going to need some attachments that contribute to recoil control and accuracy. The Carver Foregrip, Polymer Grip, and Hockenson S33S Padded stock will make this weapon much easier to control.

Incendiary ammo and the Recoil Booster muzzle will make this a deadly weapon in close quarters as it’ll shred through enemies. We can’t forget about ADS speed when it comes to SMGs and the SA 32S optic offers a nice boost in that regard.

The 9mm 50 Round Drums may seem excessive but they’re highly useful in Warzone when aiming to take down multiple enemies. The Sleight of Hand proficiency will make reloading the large magazine faster while Quick will improve your sprint speed.

Best Warzone Sten Perks & Equipment

Warzone perks
  • Perk 1: Cold Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill (Ghost second loadout)
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stim

With Combat Scout running rampant across Caldera’s thick foliage, Cold Blooded will prevent enemies from using the third perk to track your movement. Of course, you’ll want to equip Combat Scout yourself and hope your enemies don’t use the same Cold Blooded strategy.

Before you switch to Ghost you’ll want to run Overkill as the Sten needs to be paired with a long-range weapon. Despite receiving a nerf, the Bren remains the top long-range option.

A Throwing Knife will help you quickly confirm kills on downed enemies that you’ve rushed with your Sten. Due to the Stim’s new “Super Slide” mechanic, it has become the top choice in terms of Tactical equipment.

How to unlock the Sten in Warzone Pacific

How to unlock Sten

Luckily unlocking the Sten in Warzone and Vanguard is a supremely easy task that doesn’t require a significant amount of time. Players will need to hit Level 10 to unlock the Sten SMG.

If you’ve played any form of Vanguard or Warzone Pacific in the past few weeks, chances are the Sten is already accessible. Leveling up the weapon is a different story and may take some time. Luckily, players can take advantage of the upcoming Double XP event.

Best alternatives to Warzone Sten

The PPSH has been rising up the SMG ranks as of late due to a groundbreaking hip fire class that absolutely destroys close-range enemies in Caldera and Rebirth Island. The PPSH is the frontrunner to take over the new SMG meta in Warzone.

Alternatively, the Cooper Carbine remains one of the most versatile weapons in the game for those who are looking for a do-it-all weapon.

DEADROP dev responds as fans accuse CoD of stealing skin from Dr Disrespect game

Dr Disrespect fans are convinced Activision copied a Variant his game for their latest Warzone skin, and a DEADROP dev has responded.

Doomslayer skin in Warzone and Vanguard

Activision dropped Warzone and Vanguard’s Tracer Pack Malware Ultra Skin but players immediately noticed a striking similarity with Dr Disrespect’s DEADROP, and it looks like it’s even prompted a response from a Midnight Society developer.

Not long after Activision had to apologize for copying artwork from an independent artist, plagiarism accusations are flying once again. This time concerning Vanguard and Warzone’s new Doomslayer skin which Dr Disrespect fans immediately recognized.

Dr Disrespect’s ‘vertical extraction shooter’ DEADROP is currently in development, and there have already been plenty of comparisons with Call of Duty — mostly from Doc himself. He’s previously said that Modern Warfare 2 can’t “match” DEADROP.

Those who have bought a DEADROP Founders Pass have received one of 10,000 “Variants,” which are unique in-game characters. Senior developers have shown off their Variants, and many think they are the inspiration for Call of Duty’s latest bundle.

The Tracer Pack Malware Ultra skin dropped in Warzone and Vanguard on August 15, featuring a hooded sci-fi character with a skull-faced digital visor. Those words could also be used to describe DEADROP founder Robert Bowling’s Variant, and players were quick to make the comparison.

“Damn, they had to scrap the Dog they ripped off then went straight for a DEADROP variant,” replied one Twitter user. “Looks like whoever created this skin TRIED to copy the Variant of one of the leaders of [Midnight Society],” commented another.

While not a direct response, Bowling, who’s an ex-Infinity Ward dev, tweeted: “At least name it after me.”

Not everyone was convinced that the skin was a straight copy though, as some said that it’s a classic sci-fi design that’s been around longer than DEADROP.

We’ll need to wait and see whether Activision respond to the accusations, but Doc fans are convinced. In the meantime, check out how NICKMERCS will be “brutally honest” if he thinks DEADROP is trash.

Warzone players claim lag is making game “unplayable” after Season 4 Reloaded patch

Warzone Pacific players are frustrated with the severe lag that is making the game “unplayable” in Season 4 Reloaded.

Numerous Warzone Pacific players have reported experiencing severe lag which has made the game unplayable after the Season 4 Reloaded update went live.

The Season 4 Reloaded update brought a ton of changes for Warzone Pacific players to explore, including a nerf to the Serpentine Perk as well as the addition of a Terminator crossover.

However, the seasonal update also brought a frustrating problem to the popular Call of Duty title, as reports are coming in of players experiencing lag which makes it impossible to enjoy the game.

When the Season 4 Reloaded update first went live, there were numerous reports of a strange glitch that would cause frame skips and ping spikes. Now players are experiencing another issue in the game.

Reddit user ‘Clip_It_’ claimed that the game has been “unplayable” for a few days and shared a short clip of them experiencing massive lag spikes when playing in the Warzone Pacific subreddit.

In the clip, lag spikes would occur which would cause both the player and his opponents to repeatedly freeze for a few seconds before moving again. The Redditor added that this has been happening in almost every game.

This is a problem that’s also being faced by other players, as a few commenters shared their own recent experiences with the lag spikes. It seems that some Warzone maps are more affected by this than others.

One of the commenters claimed that this issue is more prominent when playing on Caldera, as matches there are “much laggier” compared to those held on the Rebirth Island or Fortune’s Keep maps.

This claim was corroborated by a few other players in the thread, as one of them reported having smooth games on Fortune’s Keep and Rebirth Island while experiencing terrible lag on Caldera.

The player added: “It’s the same thing for me. I can’t play [Caldera] without it skipping. [I] have never gotten below 90 ping, but can have smooth games on Rebirth and FK.”

The developers have yet to address the lag issues that have popped up in Season 4 Reloaded Hopefully, a fix will be implemented for them in a brand-new Warzone Pacific update patch soon.

CoD fans reveal necessary change that could save Warzone 2

As players look forward to Warzone 2, they have revealed one of the issues with the current Warzone that needs to change.

With Warzone 2.0 on the horizon, Call of Duty fans have revealed one of the most important changes that are needed for it to succeed.

Warzone is coming to the end of its lifespan, and while the upcoming Season 5 update is looking to give the incredibly successful BR a great send-off, players are hungry for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.

While not a lot is actually known about Warzone 2, players, of course, have their recommendations and suggestions for the game. Most of these Warzone 2 wants are based on the player’s experiences with the first installment.

Lag and performance issues have been a dominant topic of player frustrations when it comes to problems with Warzone. Just recently, players had found a glitch with the ping system, which was causing very poor performance.

Now, Reddit user juicemtl has highlighted the latency issue in Warzone, saying that it “needs to stop if WZ2 wants to be successful.”

The user expands on his opinion in the comments, saying “I don’t care how good of a game WZ2 will be, if they can’t figure out a way to have the game run smoothly and if packet burst and bad servers are going to be the norm, the game will fail.”

Players in the comments of the Reddit post share similar experiences when it comes to lag and this error symbol in Warzone, with one Redditor saying “everytime that s*** pops up I lag lmao.”

While many seem to have experienced the problem, some feel that Warzone 2 will be successful regardless of server issues, as Warzone has done well even with them: “You’re joking right? If that was the case WZ would’ve failed a long time ago.”

We’ll have to wait and see how people receive Warzone 2 when it officially launches. With Modern Warfare 2 on the way and the Call of Duty Next event soon to come, it may not be long until we get our first look at the sequel to Warzone.
