If you want to be victorious on the new Fortune’s Keep map, then you’ll need to start off at the right landing spot, and we’ve got all the best ones in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

The Warzone Pacific Season 4 update has added a plethora of fun content for players to enjoy, including the brand-new Fortune’s Keep map that is slightly bigger than the fan-favorite Rebirth Island.

With the arrival of this brand-new location, players will be wondering what are the best areas on the map to land on. We’ll go over the best landing spots on Fortune’s Keep in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Best Warzone Fortune’s Keep landing spots


You’ll want to get your hands on some loot and weapons as soon as you arrive on Fortune’s Keep so we recommend landing at the Town POI at the start of a Warzone match. This area features plenty of loot for you and your squad to collect.

However, this location is extremely dangerous as you’ll encounter quite a few enemy players here. You can choose to battle them or simply leave the Town after looting some of the houses and buildings.

Winery is a great spot if you’re looking to secure a lot of kills early in the game. While it has less loot than the Town POI, you’ll still find plenty of guns and cash to collect after landing there.

You’ll need to be ready to immediately battle enemies as you’ll constantly encounter squads around this POI. So we recommend gearing up quickly and taking out anyone that you run into before moving on to another location.

Keep is the largest POI on Fortune’s Keep and has various rooms that are filled with weapons as well as other loot for you to collect. You can land there if you’re looking to stock up quickly before rotating somewhere else.

The interiors of this POI feature consist of various narrow corridors and rooms that are ideal for close-range combat. For this reason, we recommend picking up a powerful SMG as soon as you arrive here.

If you’re looking for a safer spot to land where you can collect some loot and weapons without having to battle players right away then we recommend heading to the Overlook POI near the back corner of the map.

This area doesn’t have as much loot as the previous two locations, but there’s a buy station nearby where you can buy loadouts. You’ll encounter fewer players here than at Town or Winery.

Landing at Overlook will ensure a more relaxed start to your game, and you can then rotate to other areas of the map from there once you’re prepared to take on greater opposition from enemy players.

Warzone players call for major LMG buffs as Assault Rifles dominate meta

Warzone players are sick of Assault Rifles dominating the meta so are calling for LMGs to receive major buffs.

Although supposed to be long-range powerhouses, with a few exceptions, LMGs have never broken into Warzone’s meta for long. Claiming that LMGs have no identity, players are calling for major buffs.

Although weapons come and go from Warzone’s meta, how the guns behave has almost always stayed the same. Players always stick with a long-range weapon with low recoil and a large mag size, and a lightweight SMG with a fast TTK.

The long-range weapon has almost always been an Assault Rifle or an LMG that’s been built to act like an Assault Rifle, and players are growing tired of it. With a couple more Warzone Pacific seasons left and Warzone 2 on the horizon, players are calling for major LMG buffs so they’ll have their own identity.

Although a couple of LMGs such as the Bruen Mk9, MG82, and Bren have made their way into Warzone’s meta, the class as a whole has never come close to the popularity or efficiency of Assault Rifles.

Reddit user IonlyPlayAOE3 explained why LMGS have a “sh*t identity” in Warzone, laying much of the blame on Vanguard weapons’ ten attachments. They explained that an Assault Rifle can do everything that an LMG can, especially by holding at least 60 rounds.

They hope that LMGs will have much more of an identity in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, where Assault Rifles should “struggle against LMGs in long-range to ultra long range engagements.”

Many players agreed, wanting an Assault Rifle to become a middle ground between LMGs and SMGs. “They should lose to LMGs at range, and lose to SMGs up close, but be a decent middle ground,” explained Shielo34.

However, some worried that buffing LMGs would just make them replace Assault Rifles in the meta. Instead of giving LMGs straight buffs, some suggested lowering Assault Rifles’ magazine size.

Warzone players were starting to catch on to Season 4’s UGM-8 LMG and its burst-fire barrel, but the devs were quick to nip that in the bud with the June 30 update. With the NZ-41 now nerfed as well, we’ll need to wait and see how the post-nerf UGM fits into the Season 4 meta.

Warzone’s best attachments received major nerfs in June 30 update

Warzone Pacific Season 4 received a plethora of balancing adjustments in the June 30 patch, with some of the best attachments in the game getting significant nerfs.

The June 30 Warzone Pacific patch brought a ton of weapon balancing changes in Season 4, including a nerf to the popular NZ-41, which the developers felt had become too overpowered over the last season.

Other weapons like the H4 BlixenMarco 5, and UGM-8 were also changed in the update. Warzone players will be encouraged to alter their usual loadouts as the best attachments have also been nerfed.

Warzone Pacific Season 4’s June 30 update patch included nerfs to the Lengthened ammo type, MX Silencer muzzle, and M1941 Handstop underbarrel. These attachments are popular choices on Assault Rifle loadouts.

The MX Silencer and Lengthened ammo type boost your weapon’s accuracy and bullet velocity respectively. The June 30 update gave both of these attachments received a 3% reduction in muzzle velocity.

Meanwhile, the M1941 Handstop underbarrel’s recoil control has been changed to 3.5% down from 4%. While this seems like a minor change, it can actually greatly affect your loadout’s effectiveness in combat.

Since the MX Silencer, M1941 Handstop, and Lengthened are all popular choices for multiple weapons, it’s extremely likely that these attachment nerfs are going to greatly impact Warzone players’ loadout builds.

While the update brought various nerfs to different weapons and attachments, it also featured buffs to Vanguard’s Warzone weapons, as the 3-LineKar98k, and Type 99 all received an increase in bullet velocity.

Warzone expert reveals genius trick to instantly get Loadout Drop

Getting a Loadout Drop early is key to surviving Warzone’s early game but there’s a way to get your loadout in a matter of seconds.

Getting your loadout as soon as possible is vital to winning in Call of Duty: Warzone and pro player IceManIsaac has revealed a genius trick to getting your loadout in seconds.

Loadouts are what sets Warzone apart from all of the other battle royale games. Getting your own custom weapon gives a massive advantage over those with ground loot, so getting a Loadout Drop as soon as possible is key to winning.

It can be tough to get your Loadout Drop in the chaos of the early game, but a clever strategy from streamer IceManIsaac can get your team a Loadout Drop and free UAV in seconds.

Grotto POI in Warzone Fortune's Keep map

To instantly get a Loadout Drop in Warzone, all players need to do is land on a Top Secret Contract in Fortune’s Keep. This will starts a random Contract such as Supply Run, Scavenger, or a Bounty, and you’ll get a whopping $8,000 as well as a UAV.

IceManIsaac explained that the Supply Run won’t task you with traveling across the map like in Caldera, it’ll actually be pretty near, so you’ll be able to land on it in a matter of seconds. A loadout only costs $7500 dollars so you can buy the loadout straight away and have a free UAV to see any approaching enemies.

While doable in Solos, this strategy works best in squads. If one player picks up the Contract and the rest float in the air to complete the task, the process will be even quicker. Even if it’s a Bounty, all of the players can land on top of the target and it won’t matter if they die in the process because of the Resurgence mechanic.

Fortune’s Keep is pure chaos in the early game, so securing yourself a loadout before anyone else will be sure to set you up for success.
