The Double Barrel Shotgun is a powerful Vanguard weapon in Warzone, so here are the attachments and perks needed to make the best Double Barrel Shotgun loadout in Warzone Pacific Caldera.

Shotguns are capable of eliminating enemies in just a few powerful shots, and there are plenty of great selections in the Call of Duty series. One of the most notable picks is CoD Vanguard’s Double Barrel Shotgun.

This weapon is now available in Warzone Pacific Season 1, and you can equip the right attachments and Perks to make a loadout that’s capable of annihilating all of your competition.

Here’s the best Double Barrel Shotgun in Warzone Season 1.

Best Double Barrel Shotgun attachments for Warzone Pacific Caldera

Warzone Double Barrel Shotgun
  • Muzzle: M97 Full Choke
  • Barrel: LJ-18 Defender
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Ammo Type: Incendiary
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Perk 1: Akimbo 
  • Perk 2: Quick

We’ll start off this Warzone loadout with the M97 Full Choke muzzle to reduce the Double Barrel Shotgun’s pellet spread, focusing its damage. The LJ-18 Defender Barrel will boost both hipfire damage and damage range.

We’ve chosen to go with the Removed Stock as it complements the hipfire and movement buffs. The G16 2.5x Optic improves your overall accuracy and you can use Incendiary Ammo Type to apply fire damage over time.

The Pine Tar Rear Grip will improve hipfire accuracy and will perfectly complement the Akimbo Perk that lets you dual-wield shotguns. Finally, Quick will boost your sprint speed.

Choosing the Akimbo Perk means that the underbarrel will be disabled, and we decided to stick with the default option for magazines in this Double Barrel Shotgun loadout.

Best Warzone Double Barrel Shotgun Perks and equipment

Double barrel shotgun in cod vanguard
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stim

This loadout will focus on improving the damage you can endure as well as dish out. We recommend equipping E.O.D as your first Perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage.

You’ll want to pair this weapon up with a faster primary option, and choosing Overkill will help sort that out. Lastly, we’ll equip the Amped Perk that lets you swap between your weapons much quicker.

Lastly, when deciding your Lethal and Tactical picks, you can stick with a Frag Grenade along with Stims. The former lets you deal a ton of damage to multiple opponents and the latter gives a major speed boost.

Popping a Stim at the right time can give an enormous speed boost as you leap towards an enemy team. There’ll be no stopping you if you can time the buff perfectly.

How to unlock the Double Barrel Shotgun in Warzone

The Double Barrel Shotgun can be unlocked after reaching Level 49, making it extremely time-consuming to get the weapon. You’ll need to hop into several games and play well to get this done.

You can speed up this process by playing the game during Double XP events when they go live. Once you unlock the Double Barrel Shotgun, you’ll have access to an extremely powerful primary weapon.

Best alternatives

If you’re looking for a weapon that’s more effective at greater distances then you can equip the Bren LMG. This gun boasts an impressive amount of ammo and firepower, making it a viable alternative.

Best Automaton loadout for Warzone Pacific Caldera

Here are the attachments and perks you need to equip to make the best Automaton loadout for Warzone Pacific Caldera.

Best Automaton loadout warzone pacific

The Automaton is one of the most popular Assault Rifle choices in Vanguard Multiplayer. Luckily, its stellar qualities can also shine in Warzone Pacific if you craft the best Automaton loadout possible. 

Warzone players will have to get used to a number of changes while playing Call of Duty’s Battle Royale. The meta is constantly shifting as new updates bring buffs and nerfs to weapons.

While the Automaton was regarded as the best AR when the integration first landed, a nerf to its recoil saw it bomb out of the meta. Having said that, the recent January 12 update gave the weapon a buff, and players are starting to realize how strong the weapon is once again.

Here’s the best Automaton loadout you can use for Warzone Pacific success.

Best Automaton attachments for Warzone Pacific

automaton preview in cod vanguard
  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Empress 620mm Precision
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: ZAC Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 75 Round Drum
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Although the Automaton doesn’t boast the fastest TTK amongst Assault Rifles, it is certainly one of the easiest to control. The Empress 620mm Precision, ZAC Skeletal stock, m1941 Hand Stop, Tight Grip Perk, and Polymer Grip all work toward improving accuracy by steadying the weapon. 

As with most Warzone loadouts, increased magazine size is highly-recommended. The 6.5mm Sakura 75 Round Drum will allow you to knock and wipe several players. Fully Loaded will put you in the best position to win by starting you with maximum ammo. Lengthened will increase bullet velocity, making the Automaton a lethal choice. 

Lastly, although Optics are generally down to preference, we love the G16 2.5x, as it provides the weapon with a clean reticle and zoom.

Best Automaton Perks and equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Top Break
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stun

Although big changes have made their way to Warzone, some things have maintained the status quo. E.O.D, Ghost, and Amped should remain an extremely popular trio of Perks.

Along the same lines, the Semtex Lethal equipment, and Stun Tactical equipment will continue to be useful options. Of course, many of these choices will not be available in the Vanguard Royale mode.

The Top Break has made waves as a powerful Secondary weapon option. Seeing as the Automaton specializes in long-range gunfights, the Top Break handgun will have your back in close quarters.

How to unlock the Automaton in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific

Automaton Warzone Pacific

In order to unlock the Automaton in Warzone, players must reach Rank 8, making it very easy to obtain.

Many players have already sufficiently leveled up the weapon through Vanguard Multiplayer, making it the ideal choice for early Warzone success. 

Warzone Pacific alternatives to Automaton

Long-range Assault Rifles are a popular choice across Caldera. With a ton of open space on the map, these weapons will certainly excel. If the Automaton isn’t your first choice then you may want to consider the STG44. It offers less mobility but more firepower. 

If you prefer to use the Sniper Rifle and Submachine Gun combo then the Kar98k and PPSH-41 are the perfect pair.


With Warzone Pacific Season 1 coming to an end, you may be wondering when Warzone Season 2 will be underway with the recent news of the delay.

Best Diamatti loadout for CoD: Warzone Pacific Season 1

Here are the attachments and perks you can equip to make the best Warzone Pacific Diamatti loadout in Season 1 for close-quarter battles.

Published

diamatti warzone loadout

The Diamatti is a reliable handgun ideal for close combat and it remains a viable option during Warzone Pacific Season 1. Here’s the best Warzone Diamatti loadout that will allow you to mow down enemies in close-quarters combat.

The close-range meta for Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific has a good deal of variety right now in Season 1, with the Diamatti Pistol from Black Ops Cold War being an excellent choice for players when it comes to their secondary weapon, especially if you are running a Ghost class.

If you’re looking to make this handgun your trusty side-arm during close encounters, then you will want to make sure you have the best Warzone Pacific Diamatti loadout built for your class.

Here are the attachments and perks you will need to use to have the best Warzone Pacific Diamatti loadout ready for battle.

Best Warzone Pacific Diamatti loadout attachments

Diamatti loadout Warzone Pacific
  • Muzzle: Agency Supressor
  • Barrel: 7.2″ Task Force
  • Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Ammunition: STANAG 30 Rnd
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

The Diamatti was once considered overpowered when it first dropped in Warzone, but it has since received a few buffs and nerfs in recent seasons. Although it isn’t considered OP anymore, it still absolutely shreds on Rebirth Island. Players who prefer the Rebirth Island map should give this Diamatti loadout a try.

We’ll start with the Agency Suppressor Muzzle attachment, which will give you a big boost in vertical recoil control all while keeping your shots off of the minimap.

Next, we’ll use the 7.2″ Task Force Barrel to improve the Diamatti’s damage range and bullet velocity significantly. This will make the weapon ideal for close-quarters and medium-range encounters so that you don’t get overwhelmed by foes.

While the handgun has precise accuracy, you’ll be firing from the hip in certain close-range combat situations, so we recommend equipping the SWAT 5mw Laser Sight to increase hip-fire accuracy.

Finally, we’ll cap off the best Warzone Diamatti loadout with the STANAG 30 Round Mag to make sure you do not run out of bullets in the middle of a fight and the Serpent Wrap Rear Grip attachment to boost your aim down sight speed.

Best Perks to use with Warzone Diamatti class

best warzone diamatti perks
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Battle Hardened

Many battles on Caldera or Rebirth Island will have enemies throwing explosives at you. Using E.O.D. will allow you to take less damage from enemy explosives and help you stay in the fight longer.

Using the Best Warzone Diamatti loadout means you do not have to worry about using Overkill and can focus on utilizing the power of Ghost, which will keep you from appearing on enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Another bonus of using this Black Ops Cold War pistol as your main secondary weapon is that you do not need to use Amped to increase your weapon swap speed, as it is already fast enough for Pistols.

This will allow you to use Battle Hardened to reduce the effectiveness of enemy stun and flash grenades, which can be the difference between winning and losing a fight.

Most recent Diamatti buffs and nerfs

Raven Software haven’t made any major changes to the Diamatti Pistol in some time, but we will update this section with any new buffs or nerfs if they are applied in the future.

How to unlock the Diamatti in Warzone Pacific

Players will first need to unlock this Pistol if they want to create the best Warzone Diamatti loadout. Interested individuals can unlock this weapon by reaching Level 49 in either Warzone or Black Ops Cold War.

Consider using a Double XP token and this Rebirth Island strategy to fully level weapons up in 30 minutes.

Best Diamatti alternatives for Warzone Pacific

There are very few weapons in the Pistol category that are dominating Warzone Pacific at the moment. If you want to stick to a Pistol and still be able to use Ghost with your first loadout then Vanguard’s 1911 Pistol and Top Break Pistol are fine candidates.

Warzone’s most overpowered Assault Rifle is back after January 12 update buff

Warzone’s weapon meta is shifting once again after a previously nerfed weapon makes its return back into the meta after receiving a buff.

Published

warzone pacific automaton

After the January 12th update, one of the Warzone Pacific ARs that was previously overpowered and nerfed has been buffed, currently making it one of the best options, especially with this “specific” build.

The mid-season update for Warzone Pacific Season 1 introduced a variety of buffs and nerfs to keep the game’s weapon meta fresh.

Despite the new SMG, the Welgun, stealing the show and becoming one of the best weapons to use, a previously overpowered AR has taken its place in the meta once again after receiving a buff in the patch.

Back when Warzone Pacific first launched, players were getting to grips with all the new Vanguard weapons, figuring out which ones would top the meta.

Players quickly realized how strong the Automaton was, mostly because of its lack of recoil and consistent damage at range.

The Automaton became the number one AR option for players until it was subsequently nerfed. The nerf saw its recoil adjusted, which made it much less overpowered. Having said that, the devs have decided to buff the weapon in the mid-season update, and players are slowly realizing its potential once again.

Warzone Pacific January 12 Automaton buff

warzone automaton

In the Warzone January 12 patch notes, the Automaton received the following buff:

  • Assault Rifle Hotel (VG)Recoil decreased
  • Recoil Deviation decreased

This buff has greatly increased the viability of this weapon, especially since the previous nerf made the weapon’s recoil much harder to control and predict.

After this buff, even FaZe Swagg believes that the weapon is “back,” claiming in his latest video that it is now his “main AR.”

Make sure you check out our best Automaton loadout for Warzone Pacific after this buff, as it does require certain attachments to make it feel just as great as it once felt.
