The Bren LMG is one of the new additions in CoD: Warzone Pacific Season 1, and here are the right attachments and Perks to make the best Bren loadout that you can use in Caldera.
Warzone Pacific Season 1 features lots of fun new content for players to enjoy, including various Vanguard weapons. One of these new additions is the powerful Bren LMG, which has been praised by JGOD.
This is a heavy weapon that boasts an impressive amount of ammo and firepower, with the only major downside being its slow rate of fire. However, this gun can still be extremely lethal with the right loadout.
Here’s how you can make the best Warzone Pacific Season 1 Bren loadout.
Best Bren attachments for Warzone Pacific Caldera
- Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
- Barrel: Queen’s 775m Scepter
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: Oak & Shield 12B
- Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
- Magazine: 303 British 100 Round Drum
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
First, we’ll focus on bringing the Warzone Bren’s recoil under control, and the Mercury Silencer is great for quietening shots and improving accuracy. The Queen’s 775m Scepter. will also help reduce the heavy kicking recoil.
With the weapon’s accuracy improved, you can increase your chances of hitting your targets at longer ranges by equipping the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x optic. The Oak & Shield 12B stock will boost aiming stability.
The Carver Foregrip underbarrel provides further recoil control along with a boost to your hip-fire accuracy at the cost of a slight decrease in ADS speed, while the 303 British 100 Round Drum will ensure you have plenty of ammo.
We went with the Sleight of Hand Perk to help you reload this huge magazine, while Fully Loaded lets you start with maximum reserve ammo so that you don’t have to look for more during combat.
Lastly, we chose the Lengthened ammo type to give the weapon added bullet velocity so you can hit your enemies before they have a chance to react.
Best Bren Perks and equipment
- Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Lethal: Thermite
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
You’ll want to stay hidden from enemies using the Combat Scout Perk to mark their targets. For that reason, we recommend equipping Cold-Blooded to ensure that they don’t follow your movements.
Overkill lets you pick another primary weapon for different combat situations, so you can pair the Bren with something like the Kar98k. Amped lets you swap between your weapons much quicker.
Finally, you should equip the Thermite and Heartbeat Sensor equipment so that you can track your enemies and hunt them down with greater ease.
How to unlock the Bren in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific
To unlock the Bren, you must reach Level 53 in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 1. Since this is just two levels off the max, it will take some serious grinding to get there.
Since you’ll need to have the Bren available to you in Vanguard and Warzone to put together this loadout, be sure to hop into some games and play extremely well until you reach the required level.
Best alternatives to the Bren in Vanguard
The Bren is a slow-firing, heavy LMG, so if you’re looking for something faster then we recommend trying out the Volk Assault Rifle in Warzone Pacific. It’s rapid enough to eliminate whole groups of players.
You can also check out our best Automaton loadout, which is a fast-firing Assault Rifle that you can use to eliminate opponents over great distances during long-range combat situations.
Since Caldera just arrived, we expect the weapon meta to shift. For more Warzone, check out why Dr Disrespect wants to uninstall the “boring” Warzone Pacific.

Warzone hackers bring flying cars to Caldera
Warzone’s infamous flying car exploit is back with a vengeance as hackers revived the hated cheat and brought it to Caldera.
After first appearing in Verdansk, hackers have brought flying cars to Warzone Pacific with an exploit that is being dubbed the “Harry Potter glitch.”
Although the RICOCHET anti-cheat has weeded out a significant number of hackers, running into players who abuse cheats in Warzone can still occur from time to time. The latest exploit that is running rampant across Warzone Pacific is one that gives vehicles the ability to fly.
Warzone players will be familiar with this particular exploit as it first appeared in Verdansk before players moved to Caldera. Now the flying cars are back to frustrate players who are simply trying to enjoy Warzone as intended.
After clips of hackers with damage disabled warmed the hearts of Warzone players earlier in the week, it seems the balance has been restored as hackers have found a way to score a point for their team.

To make matters worse, the flying car cheat looks much easier to control this time around. In the previous installment control over the flying vehicle seemed to be an issue but in Caldera, this isn’t the case.
As seen in the video above, a squad of players can easily take down targets from the advantageous position granted by the flying car. When combined with cheats for aiming, the flying car becomes an unstoppable force that makes hackers impossible to kill.
Although Raven has yet to respond to the new version of this classic exploit, hopefully, a quick fix is in the works so players won’t have to look to the sky in frustration much longer.

How to stop freezing at Warzone Buy Stations
Warzone players have been getting stuck at Buy Stations since the Pacific update but luckily, there’s an easy fix.
Warzone players have been repeatedly dying to a Buy Station glitch where the game locks them in place almost every time they open one. Luckily, there’s a simple way to avoid it happening to you.
Although Warzone players have been enjoying Vanguard’s weapons on the brand new map, the constant stream of bugs and glitches has been hampering the experience for many.
One of the most frustrating issues is the Buy Station freeze glitch, where Warzone completely freezes when players attempt to open Buy Station. Usually, Warzone comes back to life after about ten seconds, but sometimes it causes the game to crash completely.
However, there’s a surprisingly simple way to avoid the dreaded Buy Station freeze glitch.
How to avoid Warzone Buy Station freeze on Xbox, PlayStation & PC
As discovered by Call of Duty content creator ProReborn, don’t slide into Buy Stations or Loadout Drops as doing so will “crash or freeze your game.”
One player confirmed it worked for them, saying they “figured this out today.” Although there’s no guarantee it will work every time, it’s well worth trying out until Raven Software release an official fix.
It’s a force of habit for Warzone players to slide into Loadout Drops and Buy Stations to open them, but you’ll need to unlearn the habit for the time being as sliding will only get you stuck in place, forcing you to await your doom.
The next major Warzone update will be Season 2, which players are hoping will fix a ton of issues plaguing the game such as invisible skins, players redeploying with their loadout, and Xbox performance issues.
The Buy Station freezing glitch is on their Trello board as “under investigation,” so hopefully they get to the bottom of the issue soon.

How to turn off crossplay in Vanguard & Warzone Pacific
Here’s what you need to do in order to turn off Call of Duty’s Crossplay functionality in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 1.
While playing Call of Duty with your friends on different platforms can be fun, there is a risk of you encountering hackers and cheaters even after the launch of RICOCHET. You can avoid that by using our guide to turn off crossplay in Vanguard & Warzone Pacific Season 1.
Crossplay in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific is a feature that connects players across all platforms through an “Activision Account.” Players who do not opt-in to this system will be unable to play cross-platform across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
If you do have an Activision Account, you will be automatically entered into the crossplay player pool by default. If you feel like this isn’t for you, and you want the option to disable this, then follow our quick and easy guide.
How to turn off crossplay for Vanguard
- Log into Vanguard Multiplayer
- Navigate to ‘Settings’
- Go to the ‘Account & Network’ tab
- Change Crossplay from ‘On’ to ‘Off’
How To Turn off Warzone Pacific Crossplay
- Log into Warzone
- Go to the ‘Options’ section
- Navigate to the ‘Account’ tab
- Change Crossplay from ‘Enabled’ to ‘Disabled’
Once crossplay is disabled, you’ll only matchmake against players on your native platform. You can toggle crossplay back on at any time. We especially recommend having it on while queuing for Warzone.
Why turn off crossplay for Vangaurd & Warzone Pacific ?
Simply put, cheaters and hackers. If you’re a console-only player, you might run into a few from the PC platform. While RICOCHET has helped significantly reduce the number of hackers, running into a cheater can still occur with some cheat providers refusing to back down.
We strongly recommend keeping crossplay on to ensure the queue times stay short, we also understand that running into cheaters is not fun.
Unfortunately, if you’re on PC, turning off crossplay will significantly increase your matchmaking times. We do not recommend turning off crossplay unless you are on a console.
Why should I keep crossplay on?
If you’re wondering why you should keep crossplay on – first and foremost, interconnectivity. With crossplay enabled, you can play with Call of Duty friends on other platforms. If this is off, players on other platforms won’t be able to join your sessions and you won’t be able to join them.
Secondly, matchmaking times will be impacted if you turn off crossplay. More so on PC than other platforms, but the matchmaking pool you enter into on console will be against players with no Activision ID and other players who have turned off crossplay.
Lastly, connections. You’ll be entered into a more narrow pool of players, so this could also have a negative impact on your ping. Overall though, you should still be thrown into the best available games.
