Best MAC-10 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 4

The MAC-10 is one of Warzone Season 4’s best SMGs, so here are the best attachments and Perks you should run with it.

Even in Warzone Season 4, the MAC-10 is still one of the best SMG loadout choices in the game. See how you can make the best MAC-10 CoD loadout possible with our complete guide.

Warzone’s Season 4 Reloaded update changed the meta yet again, bringing Cold War’s MP5 down from the top spot. Now, the MAC-10 has returned, with it being top streamer NICKMERCS’ go-to in Season 4.

Thanks to these changes, the MAC-10 is currently the third most popular weapon in the game and the top SMG.

We’ve gathered the most useful attachments and Perks you can run to dominate Season 4 with the best Warzone MAC-10 loadout.

Best Warzone MAC-10 loadout attachments

Best Warzone MAC-10 loadout
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

To keep yourself hidden from the minimap in Warzone while increasing your bullet velocity, aim down sight speed, and sprint to fire speed, there’s no better option than the Agency Suppressor. It will transform the MAC-10 into an entirely new, insanely dominant weapon for close-quarter battles.

A larger MAC-10 magazine allows for a longer burst of fire if needed, and given that the Warzone can have a few players converge on the same spot, the STANAG 53 Rnd Drum will justify itself in these situations.

There are a few barrels that you can go for, but the 5.9″ Task Force is the best option in our eyes. At the minor cost of some recoil control, you can greatly increase the weapon’s range, damage, and mobility.

The Tiger Team Spotlight will help make you even more agile when using the best Warzone MAC-10 loadout, as it provides a big boost to your movement speed and aim walking speed.

These attachments will weigh the MAC-10 down considerably, so you should add the Raider Stock for extra mobility. You’ll have increased sprint-to-fire time and be able to strafe shoot with ease.

Best Perks for Warzone MAC-10 class

E.O.D Perk in Call of Duty Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

The MAC-10 is a weapon you want to use up-close, so the E.O.D Perk is necessary. You’ll be able to tank an onslaught of explosives, keeping you in the fight.

Overkill will allow you to have an Assault Rifle, LMG, or Sniper Rifle as your primary weapon for far distance battles when using the best Warzone MAC-10 loadout.

You can then get the Ghost perk from a second loadout to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors. And for Perk 3, Amped is a solid choice. You’ll be able to switch weapons much faster, which will make sure you have the right weapon at a moment’s notice.

How to unlock the MAC-10 in Warzone

BOCW MAC-10 SMG unlock challenge

The MAC-10 was released as part of Warzone and Cold War Season 1’s Battle Pass. If you never unlocked the weapon during Season 1, you can now unlock it through a challenge.

You must kill 2 or more players rapidly, using SMGs, in 15 different matches.

The quickest and easiest way to unlock the MAC-10 is to play Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer and queue into small maps such as Nuketown ’84. Remember to complete each match, too, as leaving early causes issues with progress tracking.

For Warzone, you can either queue into Plunder with an SMG equipped and aggressively push teams or, if you get an SMG in the battle royale warm-up, quickly take out two players waiting for the round to begin. You can also take advantage of Season 4’s new Payload mode, where there’s constant action.

Best MAC-10 alternatives

The best Warzone MAC-10 loadout excels up close, so if you’re looking for another weapon to fill its spot, there are a few options.

Modern Warfare’s MP5 has also made a comeback in Season 4, taking over its Cold War counterpart. If you’re looking for a weapon that has a ton of bullets in the magazine, the Bullfrog is a solid choice.

If you’re looking for a Sniper Rifle that performs well at close range, then you can’t do better than with the Swiss K31. It allows you to take quickscoping into Warzone with its quick ADS speed and bolt time.

If you’re looking for more great weapons, then you can check out some of this season’s best loadouts below.

Warzone players call for boycott over Blizzard lawsuit and hacking problems

Due to the Blizzard lawsuit and endless hacking, Warzone, and other Call of Duty players, are calling for a boycott of Store purchases.



activision blizzard warzone

Warzone players are encouraging all Call of Duty gamers to boycott the purchase of skins and bundles from the store in response to the recent Activision Blizzard lawsuit and constant Warzone hacking.

It’s been an unsettling time for Call of Duty and its respective titles – Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, CoD: Mobile, and Modern Warfare. The ongoing Activision Blizzard lawsuit has impacted the franchise, and fans are calling for fellow players to stop buying goods from the CoD store in protest.

This includes everything from skins to Operator Bundles to even the Seasonal Battle Pass. Warzone players are citing the lawsuit, “empty updates,” and hackers as the driving force behind this movement.

The lawsuit is dealing directly with an “alleged toxic workplace,” and has even lead to a full walkout by employees in response to the unfortunate situation.

Added to this is the purported series of empty updates “full of microtransactions in order to milk the players,” and the ever-increasing threat of hackers, and players have seemingly had enough.

Reddit user Jaszs has lead the charge by saying: “I’m writing this as someone who has played every. single. COD since COD2, and WZ since day 1 until yesterday, and also a former Blizzard fan. Yes, I know it may sound bad, but based on what’s going on (sexual harassment lawsuit, suppressing and abusive treatment of their employees…) I really think those guys don’t deserve anything from us, their customers.

“You can even keep playing the game if you want (there are some cool alternatives though; if you need some just ask in the comments!), just don’t spend any money in their store. In any case, you should also remember that they are the same guys that are releasing empty updates full of microtransactions in order to milk the players, releasing over and over the same game and not giving a single f*ck about the increasing number of hackers.”

The very passionate statement received over 300 comments and counting, and it’s universally in favor of boycotting Activision’s Store ahead of the Warzone Season 5 launch.

Given that there are many responses, here are a selection of replies:

  • “I’ve got 900 COD points and level 90 on the battle pass. Not spending a penny more on this game. They don’t respect their employees, they don’t respect the players (anti-cheat lmao) they aren’t getting anymore of my money.”
  • “Once all this sh*t came to light, my entire friend group collectively uninstalled the game and swore off of it for good. We were already mad at the game for being poorly managed with hackers and constant glitches/crashes. I suppose this was the lead straw that broke the metaphorical camel’s back.”
  • “Based on the way they’ve handled cheating, the CW integration, and the general state of the game in the last year, I’m shocked than any of you have been buying cosmetic items from them. Do you realize what kind of message you’re sending by making the worst CoD their highest-earning one?”

At the time of writing, the post has nearly 1.8K upvotes and rising. Given the player count of Warzone far exceeds this, it’s hard to imagine this boycott would do too much damage.

Conversely, Producer at Sledgehammer Games Alayna Cole has Tweeted an important message concerning the circumstances.

Boycotting the Activision store will have an obvious knock-on effect in terms of sales revenue, and would ultimately disrupt the salaries and jobs of many employees who are not involved in this lawsuit.

It’s a hard position for all involved and for players who engage in Call of Duty games. The lawsuit is still long ongoing, and we’ll continue to update you at Charlie INTEL with any breaking developments.

FaZe Swagg reveals how to create the classic MW2 ACR in Warzone

FaZe Swagg has revealed how to create Modern Warfare 2’s fan-favorite ACR Assault Rifle through Warzone’s Gunsmith.



FaZe Swagg reveals Warzone ACR build

Modern Warfare 2’s ACR is one of the most popular and remembered weapons in Call of Duty history, and FaZe’s Kris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson has revealed how to build it in Warzone.

Modern Warfare 2 featured some of Call of Duty’s most popular weapons. The Model 1887, Intervention, and UMP45 will always be remembered by the CoD community. However, there’s one weapon that is perhaps remembered above all the others – the ACR.

This laser beam of an Assault Rifle quickly became a fan favorite, and ahead of every Modern Warfare (2019) season, fans hoped for the ACR’s arrival. It never came, but through the gunsmith system, you can actually turn the Kilo 141 into MW2’s classic ACR.

Modern Warfare 2 ACR Assault Rifle

Modern Warfare and Warzone’s Gunsmith system features the most detailed create-a-class that Call of Duty has ever seen. Through the system, you can completely modify weapons, almost turning them into another weapon entirely.

The M4A1 can become a burst-fire M16A4 and the Holger-26 can even become the classic G36. FaZe clan member and top Warzone streamer Swagg has demonstrated how to convert the Kilo 141 into MW2’s classic ACR.

Swagg has previously tried to create ACRs out of the Kilo because of their striking resemblance, but he’s now found the ultimate conversion from YouTuber Navvix. With the right attachments, it becomes almost identical to the classic ACR.

FaZe Swagg’s Warzone ACR

FaZe Swagg's Warzone ACR Kilo 141
  • Muzzle: Compensator
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Stock: Singuard Arms Sniper Pro
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Rubberized Grip Tape

Because this is a Kilo 141, it boats the accuracy that made the classic ACR so popular. Also, its general shape, especially thanks to the Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler and Sniper Pro stock, closely resembles the classic ACR.

Now, this ACR conversion is far from Warzone’s meta, but if you’re looking for a break from the battle royale grind, take this ACR into either Rebirth Island or the new Payload mode for some off-meta nostalgia.

When does Warzone Season 5 start? Season 4 end date

Season 4 is coming to an end, so when will Warzone Season 5 start? Here’s everything we know about a possible start date.



Warzone Season 4 keyart

Season 4 is drawing to its inevitable conclusion, so when will Raven Software launch Season 5 of Call of Duty: Warzone? We have all you need to know including its start date and rumors on new maps and features.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded made some significant changes to the battle royale, with major weapon balancing shaking up the game’s meta entirely, while the OTs 9 gives players a brand-new SMG to play with in close-quarters combat.

Even with all this new content, Warzone players are always thinking about what’s next, and are already pondering over when Season 5 will release. The good news is that the Season 4 Battle Pass gives us a clue as to when this will be.

Warzone Season 5 start date

So when will Season 5 kick off? Well, the Season 4 Battle Pass has a timer, which says it’s set to expire on August 9, 2021. So, we can safely assume that Season 5 will begin then, as this has been the pattern Raven Software has followed over the past few seasons.

Of course, plans could change, but 2 months is the time that most seasons in CoD last, so we’re pretty confident we’ll be downloading Season 5 in the second week of August.

Warzone Season 4 end date

Obviously, the date for the end of Season 4 and the start of Season 5 are very similar, so if the new one starts on August 9, we expect Season 4 will wrap up on August 8, 2021.

Warzone Season 5: Soap Operator, CX-9 & RAAL LMG

At the moment, there’s very little information about what could come in the next seasonal update for Warzone. It’s likely that we’ll see new weapons as is the norm, and Verdansk ’84 will also receive some sort of change too.

One of the biggest mysteries currently surrounding Warzone is the absence of several guns and a fan-favorite Operator.

Soap Operator skin & bundle

Despite being announced way back in December 2020, Captain Soap MacTavish remains AWOL in the Cold War and Warzone universe. An Operator bundle was found on CODTracker, but the brave Scotsman has yet to materialize.

He was recently spotted in some games of 2019’s Modern Warfare, so it might be a sign of things to come in Season 5.


Another baffling mystery in Call of Duty: Warzone is the case of the missing guns – the CX-9 SMG and RAAL LMG.

Back in January 2021, the CX-9 suddenly became available for players to acquire early, and it was removed soon after. Around the same time, the RAAL was also seen in Warzone.

Fast-forward to the end of Warzone Season 4, and the weapons are still absolutely nowhere to be seen or heard from. Again, they exist and are functional, so it can only be a matter of time before they’re added to Warzone.

There are rumors that a new map is being developed for Warzone to tie in with the upcoming release of World War II: Vanguard, however that remains officially unconfirmed. With Season 5 starting in August, it’s unlikely we would see it drop so early.

For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what Raven and Activision announce. Keep checking back with Charlie INTEL as we keep you updated with all the latest news on Warzone Season 5.
