Warzone player dropping into Caldera

Warzone’s brand new map, Caldera, is finally here. This tropical paradise’s steep slopes and underground caves have changed how the game is played, so here are all of the best landing spots in Warzone Pacific Caldera, whether you’re looking for wins or high-kill games.

After playing in Verdansk for almost two years, Warzone players have had to adjust to the completely different experience that Caldera offers. Gone are the high-rise buildings and open fields, players now need to navigate steep hills, thick jungles, and underground cave systems.

Choosing your landing spot is vital to securing a Warzone Victory, so we’ve covered Caldera’s best landing spots, no matter what mode you’re playing.

Best Warzone Caldera landing spot for Solo players

Lagoon

The key to surviving in Warzone solos is knowing where other players are, meaning you can’t get ambushed. One of the best places to do this is Lagoon, where the lighthouse will allow you to control the area.

Landing at Lagoon’s lighthouse will give you an overview of the surrounding area, so you can see exactly where all of the other enemies have landed. And because you only have the coast behind you, it’s unlikely you’ll be shot in the back when rotating into the center of the map.

You can also use the underground cave systems to stealthily move around the Lagoon and creep up on any enemies who are busy looting.

Best Warzone Caldera landing spot for Duos players

Sub Pen

While the Sub Pen building is massive, there are plenty of close-range areas that perfectly suit the Duos mode.

The roof is often the busiest part of the Sub Pen, so you can land here if you’re keen on taking a quick fight. However, the inside is bursting with weapons and cash. Either glide through one of the rooftop hatches or go through one of the side doors and you’ll come away with more cash than you’ll know what to do with.

And rotating out of Sub Pen isn’t too difficult as there are vehicles dotted around and plenty of buildings and other landmarks to mask your escape.

Best Warzone Caldera landing spot for Trios & Quads

Mines

Teamwork is key in Trios and Quads games, so you want to land in an area that allows you to stick together and collect a ton of loot. Mines has plenty of large buildings that your squad can navigate through, and plenty of open sightlines where you can pick off any player caught out in the open.

Once you’ve cleared out Mines, you’ll already be in the center of the map and will have plenty of high-tier loot to survive until the loadout drop. If you’re lucky with the circle, controlling Mines will make you one of the most dominant forces on the map.

Best Warzone Caldera landing spots for high-kills games

Peak

Peak is one of the busiest spots in Caldera, essentially becoming the new Superstore, so it’s the place to go if you’re looking for high-kill games.

Not only is Peak Caldera’s highest point, but it’s also slap-bang in the middle of the map – meaning you can glide to almost any other POI.

Because of this, tons of players flock to this area as soon as the game starts. If you manage to survive, you’ll come away with several kills to your name and can rotate to almost any other area.

Airfield

Airfield is another solid choice if you’re looking to get as many kills as possible, thanks to its abundance of vehicles.

The Airfield sees several squads drop in every round, but it’s not as chaotic as Peak. There are plenty of buildings and hangars for you to loot up, then you can use one of the planes or vehicles to move out and hunt down any nearby players or squads.


And those are all of the best landing spots in Warzone Pacific’s Caldera! But feel free to experiment with all of the POIs on offer and you may find a personal favorite.

JGOD reveals Warzone’s best long-range weapons after Season 4 update

Warzone specialist JGOD has revealed his best long-range weapon picks following the Season 4 update that affected the meta.

Published

Call of Duty expert and Warzone extraordinaire JGOD has analyzed the many long-range weapon options and revealed the best guns to use following the Season 4 update.

Warzone devs are constantly working on balancing the battle royale’s pool of weapons through updates. Seasonal updates usually provide a ton of buffs and nerfs, which tends to leave the meta in an awkward state as players rush to adapt to the changes.

With Season 3’s dominant STG44 firmly out of the picture, new long-range options have emerged in Season 4. Luckily, Warzone expert JGOD is around to break down which weapons are viable in Season 4 following buffs and nerfs.

In JGOD‘s video highlighting the top long-range Warzone weapons after the Season 4 update, he breaks down the current state of the meta.

The stats expert clearly separates long-range options into three categories: meta, top tier viable, and viable. For the sake of breaking down the best long-range weapons, JGOD sticks to revealing the weapons he believes fit the meta and top tier viable categories.

He uses these categories to explain how the meta has changed since the Season 4 update. Prior to the update, the gap between the top meta weapons and top tier viable weapons was much larger.

Now, players can find a ton of success using top tier viable weapons: “You can use other things besides the absolute meta and not be hardcore penalized.”

According to JGOD, the NZ-41 is still the best long-range weapon in the game despite recent nerfs.

However, the expert predicts that another NZ-41 nerf should arrive soon enough, which will result in the long-range weapon meta becoming incredibly varied: “The nerf will come through again for the NZ and that will push it out and all these weapons that are top tier viable will essentially be the meta.”

Following the NZ-41, JGOD picks the BAR as the next best long-range weapon. Despite its slow fire rate, the BAR is one of the best long-range weapons in Warzone thanks to how easy it is to utilize.

The majority of JGOD’s video is spent highlighting top tier viable weapons that are set to benefit from an upcoming NZ-41 nerf: “You’re going to be able to use almost anything you want as soon as this next NZ nerf comes in.”

Aside from the NZ-41 and BAR, here’s the list of long-range weapons that players should use to maximize Warzone success:

If JGOD’s prediction is correct, it seems like the meta is heading in a very interesting direction throughout Season 4. Warzone players can expect to choose from a ton of viable options thanks to a level playing field.

One-shot Crossbow loadout to disrupt Warzone meta after Season 4 buff

After receiving a buff with the Season 4 update, the Crossbow could shake up the Warzone meta with a one-shot kill loadout.

Published

on

Warzone’s Crossbow has always been a tricky weapon to master, but a Season 4 buff has made it a dominant force capable of one-shot killing players with ease.

Modern Warfare’s Crossbow Marksman Rifle has been around since the inception of Warzone. The Crossbow is a unique weapon that has a steep learning curve, but even if players mastered the weapon, it never truly dominated Warzone lobbies.

All that is set to change in Season 4 after a major buff has upped the Crossbow’s bullet velocity by a whopping 27.2%. As a result, several Warzone players are now singing the praises of the unconventional weapon and tip it to shake up the meta.

Reddit user theGivvyOfficial posted a clip of their gameplay using the Crossbow to the Warzone subreddit. The montage is proof that with the right Crossbow loadout, the weapon can one-shot kill players from considerable distances.

The comments and discussion reveal that the title of the post is somewhat sarcastic, but there’s no denying that the Crossbow can be devastating in the right hands.

While it won’t necessarily be the number one meta weapon in Season 4, it has the potential to outperform some of the best medium-range options if players are looking to test out a different style of play.

Warzone Crossbow loadout attachments

  • Cable: 28-Strand Cable
  • Bolt: FTAC Fury 20″ Bolts
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand
  • Arms: XRK Thunder 200 Lb

This Crossbow loadout will thrive in the hands of accurate players. Thanks to the FTAC Fury 20″ Bolts that deal damage even after they hit their mark, the Crossbow produces one-shot kills consistently.

Of course, there’s no denying the weapon’s major weakness, and players were quick to point that out in the comments: “Yeah it’s s**** in close quarters combat. It’s decent for medium range engagements like you see in this clip, It also has a steep learning curve.”

If you miss your shot from a short distance, the weapon’s brutally slow reload can put you in an unfavorable position. However, if you learn to master the weapon and hit a high percentage of your shots, the sky is the limit for the Crossbow in Season 4.

Warzone players keep getting frozen in place by Fortune’s Keep’s broken areas

Certain areas of Warzone’s Fortune’s Keep map are proving deadly as players are getting completely frozen in place.

Published

Warzone players love Season 4’s Fortune’s Keep map, but certain areas of the map are ruining the experience by completely locking players in place.

Warzone’s smaller Rebirth Island map has always been a hit, and Season 4’s Fortune’s Keep has emulated its success. Players love the bright Mediterranean color scheme, parkour spots, and dynamic gameplay.

However, a few frustrating issues have gotten in the way. Players are finding their way under the map and behind walls for cheap kills, and now players are getting trapped in place by broken spots on the map.

As we can see in the video from Reddit user Gerbytron, they went prone in a corner to hide from an Airstrike but ended up completely stuck in the corner. As they tried everything they could to wriggle free, the final opponent stumbled across them lying face-first into a wooden crate and quickly ended their suffering.

Several players took to the comments to confirm that this wasn’t a one-off, with another user confirming they also got stuck in the Watchtower at Fortune’s Keeps Winery POI.

illmatic_gg claimed that a street curb managed to trap them in place, and Evberkel has been caught in a window a couple of times. “I feel like [Fortune’s Keep] has a lot of spots like this that you just get stuck in,” explained ultra_zagan.

But there do seem to be a couple of ways that you can wrench yourself free from these broken spots. One user explained that using a Stim can release you, but said that it doesn’t always work. Plus, if you have a Self-Revive, you can down yourself with an explosive and then crawl away to self-res.

Raven Software have fixed issues like this, including the dreaded Buy Station freeze glitch, in the past, so hopefully, players won’t be getting trapped in place for much longer.

The next major update is Season 4 Reloaded, scheduled for late July, but there might be a few bug fixes and balance changes ahead of the mid-season update.
