Warzone Season 3 brought a buff to the Cold War AK-47, and you can make it even more powerful with the right loadout featuring top perks and attachments. Here’s how you can make it the best Assault Rifle in the game.

Season 2 of Warzone was mainly dominated by Burst Rifles like the M16, so ARs had to take a backseat. Now, Season 3 has balanced the weapons, and there are many great Assault Rifles to choose from.

The AK-47 is one of the most notable weapons in the Call of Duty franchise. Here are the best attachments and perks you can add to the well-known AR to make it reign supreme in Warzone Season 3.

Best AK-47 attachments for Warzone Season 3

cod warzone cold war ak-47
  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.2″ VDV Reinforced
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Ammunition: Taped Mags

The key to taking the AK-47 from mid-tier to top-tier is controlling its accuracy. Recent Warzone buffs have helped in this regard, and equipping the GRU Suppressor will aid it further by silencing its shots, smashing that vertical recoil, and improving its effectiveness at range.

The 18.2″ VDV Reinforced barrel lets you deal high amounts of damage over long distances, at speed. You can pair that with the Axial Arms 3x scope, which serves as the perfect magnification to suit all ranges.

The Spetsnaz Speedgrip will provide a boost to both horizontal and vertical recoil control. This will help you control your weapon’s precision, and we’ll cap off the loadout with the Taped Mags to give the AK-47 quicker reloading.

Best perks to run with Warzone’s AK-47

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Tune Up

When you’re carrying a bulky AR, you’ll need to be faster to get yourself out of tough situations. That’s why we recommend equipping Double Time to increase your Tactical Sprint time, and it will also help adjust for the additional weight.

Equipping the Ghost perk will make you completely undetectable to enemy UAVs, Radar Drones, and Heartbeat Sensors. You can then pair up the AK-47 with the Sykov to silently take out your opponents.

This is quite reliant on obtaining Stopping Power Rounds, or Dead Silence, but Tune Up will give you a huge edge, especially with adding more Stopping Power rounds to an already incredibly powerful gun. Plus, you revive teammates quicker, too.

How to unlock Cold War AK-47 in Warzone Season 3

To unlock the Cold War AK-47 for Warzone use, you’ll need to reach Level 7, which can be done in no time at all.

Whereas, you’ll need to be Level 53 for Modern Warfare’s version.

Best alternatives to AK-47 in Warzone

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the AK-47, then we recommend going with the Krig 6, which received a significant buff at the start of Season 3.

The AS VAL isn’t one of the most popular weapons in the game, but it boasts an insanely high time to kill, making it an ideal pick.

Best Ghost loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

Having a strong Ghost class can help you perform much better in Warzone, so here is how to make the best Warzone Ghost loadout.

Best Warzone Ghost Loadout Class

Ghost is one of the most powerful perks in Call of Duty: Warzone, with players putting themselves at a disadvantage when they do not use it, so here is the best Warzone Ghost loadout you can use in the battle royale game.

Perks are some of the most powerful items in the world of Call of Duty: Warzone, as they give players beneficial bonuses that can be the difference between winning or losing a fight.

The Ghost perk has become one of the top perks players use in their loadouts in the Call of Duty battle royale thanks to its ability to keep players hidden from enemy UAVs and heartbeat sensors, which is very useful in a game like Warzone where knowing the location of your enemies can help win a fight.

With this in mind, we have gathered together the weapons and additional perks you should use to make the best Warzone Ghost loadout.

Using Ghost means that you can not take advantage of Overkill and have two main weapons for your loadout drop.

This is why we suggest using the CR-56 AMAX Assault Rifle from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the Diamatti Pistol from Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

The CR-56 AMAX is still arguably the best Assault Rifle in Warzone, even after a couple of nerfs, and with its great damage output, it is a solid choice to have as your main weapon in the best Warzone Ghost loadout.

You can find the attachments for the AMAX you should use below:

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

Without Overkill, you will need a powerful secondary weapon for close-quarter battles. The Diamatti Pistol is a monster up close, and its burst fire can take down enemy players with just a couple pulls of the trigger, making it a perfect choice for your secondary weapon in a Ghost class.

You can find the attachments for the AMAX you should use below:

  • Muzzle: Sound Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.2″ Reinforced Heavy
  • Laser: SOF Target Designator
  • Ammunition: STANAG 30 Rnd
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

Best perks for Warzone Ghost class

While your second perk in this class is already selected as Ghost, you will need to make sure that your other two perks complement this class.

This is why you will be wise to have E.O.D. as your first perk, as it will reduce the amount of damage you take from enemy explosives, which can be the difference between winning or getting eliminated.

Now, most of the best loadouts will have Amped as the third perk, as it increases your weapon swap speed, which is essential in Warzone, where it can take some time for your character to switch weapons sometimes.

However, since you will be using the Diamatti Pistol in this class, you will not need Amped, as the switching speed to Pistols is plenty quick enough on its own.

This is why Battle Hardened is an excellent choice for your third perk, as it will reduce the effectiveness of enemy flash and stun grenades, which can easily save you from being eliminated by an enemy who has stunned or flashed you before a fight begins.

How to unlock Ghost

Players who would like to use this powerful perk will need to reach level 24, as this is the rank where Ghost will be unlocked and become available for you to use in your loadouts.

Warzone hacker openly uses cheats while streaming on Twitch

Warzone unfortunately has hackers, but it’s not everyday that one of them is showcasing it on Twitch, which recently caught the community’s attention.

Published

A Warzone hacker was found cheating online while streaming to an audience on Twitch, seemingly not caring about the damage they are doing to the developers’ work and the community.

Raven Software is constantly combatting the hackers their game holds, even attempting “hardware bans” to those who cheat.

With the hackers becoming more abundant, even making their own operator skins, one has been caught streaming on Twitch, openly discussing his cheating with the chat.

The hacker found cheating on Twitch was “AGuyNamedCody,” who was streaming himself, eliminating enemies, and winning games with ease.

The hacker’s reason for cheating is extremely counterproductive, as he says, “I got tired of playing against cheaters, so I was like, oh I’ll make my own.”

The Reddit post by CorySellsDaHouse has received a lot of attention, with many in the comments directing hate towards the hacker. Warzone players are fed up with the game being abused by cheaters, especially on PC, so it seems players are taking out their anger on this hacker.

In the video, the hacker responds to a comment in the Twitch chat who asked: “So you ruin it for the folks who just wanna play and maybe have an hour a day?”

The hacker responded by saying: “Yeah, go find another game.”

This attitude towards ruining player experience shows how hackers like this have no shame in what they’re doing. They have nothing to lose, and as he says in the video if he gets banned, it takes him “two minutes to make a new account.”

Hopefully, something will be implemented for the Call of Duty battle royale that will make major progress in stopping hackers from populating servers, as cheating by players has been one of the main topics for Warzone since it was released.

5 things we want to see in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4

Verdansk ’84 has seen a big change for Warzone in Season 3. But despite new weapons and POIs, here are 5 things we’d like to see in Season 4.

Published

Warzone Season 4 is almost here, so we’re counting down the top five things we’d most like to see in the next major update for Call of Duty’s battle royale.

Warzone Season 3 is one of the most successful in the game’s short history. Whereas Season 2 rested on its laurels and became associated with its burst and FFAR meta, Season 3 majorly shook things up.

After the Nuke Event, Warzone took Verdansk back to 1984, added lots of new POIs for players to rotate around, and transformed the game’s meta into arguably the most stable and balanced. All the best Assault Rifle loadouts feature a multitude of weapons from the AMAX to the Kilo 141 to the AS Val to the Cold War AK-47.

But to continue Warzone’s success, here are the top 5 things we want to see in Warzone Season 4 and beyond.

5. Make rocks easier to traverse

Mara vaulting in Warzone

Despite being in 1984 and the rocks being slightly younger, better maintained, and haven’t fallen apart yet, they are still troublesome.

Getting caught next to rocks with the zone on your heels or enemies above you can leave you with little option other than running around until you can find an area you can actually climb.

We don’t necessarily want every single rock to be climbable, but in a big cliffside area, we feel there should be one or two footholds to climb. To compensate for this, a climbing animation could be put in place to penalize players ascending, in the same way, that rappeling leaves players vulnerable for a few seconds.

4. More Killstreak options

Warzone’s offering of Killstreaks is so awkward. Again, you either go all-in, or you need to leave Killstreaks out altogether. The current offerings are mainly Precision and Cluster Strikes, neither of which are particularly effective and are practically signposted anyway.

UAVs are useful and not too overpowered as they can easily be counteracted, and drones aren’t used by anyone. There’s no excitement in finding one, which begs the question as to why they’re in the game in the first place.

At the very least, Raven Software should experiment with Sentry Turrets and perhaps Care Packages to give the player a random goodie e.g a loadout, UAV, etc. It’s an area of Warzone that could do with a shake-up.

3. Reduce Dead Silence and Stopping Power

Warzone dead silence

Stopping Power and Dead Silence abuse needs to stop, most importantly the latter. When it’s possible to find between five and ten different Dead Silence pickups per match, it’s time to put your foot down.

Once someone triggers Dead Silence, then it’s just over for anyone that gets in that person’s way as they literally make no sound. It’s completely unfair. The attacking player gains a ridiculous advantage, and they can do this multiple times per match if they search enough.

Stopping Power isn’t as bad, but when you get into a 1v1 with someone and you’re landing consistent headshots and still get downed because your opponent’s bullets were artificially stronger, then it’s frustrating.

2. More events like the 80s Action Hero Event

The 80s Action Hero Event was a breath of fresh air for many reasons. The addition of Rambo and John McClane as Operators for Cold War and Warzone was fabulous and a really solid scoop for Activision.

But not only did players get special skins to acquire and equip, but Warzone as a whole got an incredible new POI in the process – the legendary Nakatomi Plaza from Die Hard.

It was incredibly exciting and many players would drop there regularly to try and be the first to acquire the building’s sacred treasure tucked away in the Vault. It added a whole other dimension to the game, and even after the Vault was closed, the location still remains popular.

Extra locations and POIs don’t need to all be included at once, drip-feeding them through limited events is another way to keep players invested.

1. Maintain Warzone’s meta and keep on top of it

CoD Warzone FFAR

Season 1 of Warzone eventually succumbed to the Black Ops Cold War DMR after the integration. Every man and his dog was using the DMR, leading to the term “DMRzone” being thrown around.

Then, Season 2 nerfed the DMR, but this led to players moving onto pastures new, and discovering burst weapons and the FFAR in the process. As a result, most loadouts contained either an AUG, M16, or FFAR. Once again, after many complaints, Raven nerfed all burst weapons and the FFAR.

Apart from a bit of the light being cast on the AMAX Assault Rifle, Season 3 of Warzone has been a joy for most players as there isn’t really one or two guns that tower above the rest. It’s meant a greater variety of loadouts, weapon choices, and long may it continue as Warzone enters Season 4.


With these five changes, Warzone Season 4 could be the game’s best season yet, plus we know some ways to make any future live event the best too!
