Warzone PKM

The PKM is one of the strongest LMGs in Warzone, excelling at range with a high damage potential and large magazine size.

There is no distinct meta in Warzone Season 1 following the DMR’s nerf, and the PKM can keep up with the best Kilo 141 and CR-56 AMAX builds. It’s especially effective against snipers as its ammunition belt allows for heavy suppressive fire.

The PKM is a great addition to any Warzone squad but also holds its own in BR solos. Here are the best builds to maximize its potential across Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Best Warzone PKM loadout

PKM Warzone loadout
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 26.9″ Extended Barrel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip

This PKM build is much slower than Assault Rifles in the primary category, so make sure you have a strong close-range weapon as your secondary such as the MP5.

Stick to the outdoors or hold down buildings with this loadout and you’ll find squads running for cover as you reign a relentless hundred rounds down on them.

As this PKM is built for range, the Monolithic Suppressor and 26.9″ Extended Barrel are necessary for maximizing its damage potential. The VLK 3.0x Optic also helps with range with its magnification and hidden buff to recoil control. In most circumstances, 100 rounds will be enough but be careful of using the PKM out in the open as it has a slow reload time.

To help keep the PKM under control we’re adding a Commando Foregrip. This weapon will still kick somewhat so you’ll need to pull down your analog stick or mouse to control it. Finding a surface to mount on will make this already powerful weapon devastating.

All these attachments which maximize range slow the weapon down. Adding a Tac Laser to the weapon counters these heavy attachments, vastly increasing its ADS time. If you get caught in an ambush or spot a sniper glint, you’ll still have time to react and get shots downrange.

Best perks to use with Warzone PKM

A Warzone loadout is nothing without its perks, so you want to run upgrades that will help you to survive in any situation.

E.O.D

Explosives are incredibly lethal in Warzone, which is why so many players run semtex as their lethal equipment. If you have any hope of surviving a barrage of explosives, you need to run E.O.D. As long as you have any armor, you’ll be able to tank explosions.

Overkill then Ghost

When carrying an LMG, you’ll need something for CQB in your pocket. An SMG or shotgun will be crucial to winning close-range fights, and Overkill allows you to receive two primary weapons from one loadout drop.

You’ll also want the Ghost perk to keep you hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors, so have an identical PKM class with Ghost equipped, and from your second loadout, you’ll get everything you need for the game ahead.

Amped

As the PKM is a light machine gun, it’s extremely heavy. Swapping weapons while carrying an LMG is a tedious task, and will probably get you killed while in a pinch. Amped vastly increases your weapon swap speed, meaning you can pull out an SMG almost instantly.

Use this attachments and perks with your PKM in Warzone, and you’ll be able to put an insane amount of damage downrange.

New Modern Warfare Season 7 leaks: Soap, weapons, more

A fresh leak has revealed that season 7 of CoD: Modern Warfare is coming with the game set for a new Soap operator, new weapons, and more.

Published

cod modern warfare season 7

Despite the ongoing success of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare is set to continue with a brand new Season 7. A leak has hinted at a new Soap operator, some new weapons to use, and a lot more.

It seemed like we said goodbye to Modern Warfare back in September with the game set to make way for the next entry in the franchise – Black Ops Cold War. However, a new leak has suggested that not only is the game not going away, but it’s set to be bolstered by a slew of fresh content.

The exciting leak has given us some insight as to what we can expect with most areas of the game being targeted for an update.

Modern Warfare Season 7 release date

If the reported leak from popular YouTube personality TheGamingRevolution turns out to be 100% factual, then we can expect Season 7 to drop on March 11.

The specific dates arise from the LTM Zombies Outbreak mode ending on that specific date, and speculation that Modern Warfare season 7 will fill this void.

New Modern Warfare Soap Operator

We mentioned a while back that a Soap Operator Bundle had been leaked for Warzone, and now it’s finally being implemented.

The legendary Call of Duty Captain is set to return to the series and he’s bringing with him different variants, three new Legendary weapon Blueprints, and the usual selection of Charms, Emblems, and Sprays.

Fans of Soap will have to part with 2,400 CoD Points, each, if they want to add this new Operator to their collection.

New multiplayer maps in Modern Warfare Season 7

In addition to new Operators, we are also set for some new maps to duke it out on as the leak indicates that the game’s array of multiplayer maps will also be expanded upon as well.

First up is Al Raab Airbase and this brand new location appears to be a large outdoor map with a big hangar near the middle of it. Also on the way is a reimagining of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s DLC map – Killhouse.

The other two maps are extra Gunfight playgrounds called Townhouse and Drainage. They will both be exclusive to the Gunfight mode it seems.

New weapons in Modern Warfare Season 7 & Warzone

As is now the norm with any new weapons for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, the new leaked weapons for Modern Warfare will likely make an appearance in the battle royale shooter.

The first leaked weapon is the Sykov pistol that has already been leaked and the sidearm has been available for use for some time now.

We then have the CX-9 SMG which has also been out in the public for some time. To actually use it, you’ll need to achieve two longshot SMG kills across five different games.

Our final new weapon is the Raal MG. This LMG rounds off the set and it certainly won’t be an easy one to get a hold of. To get it, you need to have leveled up another LMG, and then you need to get five kills with the Scout Optic in seven different games.

As we’ve said, all this information comes from a reliable leaker, so this information isn’t completely certain. However, if Season 7 does turn out to be the case, then Modern Warfare players have a lot of content to look forward to.

Fastest way to unlock Warzone’s Blue Dot reticle

Here are the fastest ways to unlock Warzone’s cleanest optic, the Blue Dot reticle, for Holographic and Reflex sights.

Published

Warzone Blue Dot reticle

The Blue Dot reticle is one of the cleanest optics you can equip in Call of Duty: Warzone, but it takes a ton of time and kills to unlock. We’ve put together a guide on the quickest ways to unlock it.

Many streamers and content creators favor the Blue Dot Holo Sight over anything else because of how clean it is. You get the benefit of the Holographic Sight’s huge aperture, but also have the precision of a Red Dot Sight. Equipping the Blue Dot on the Kilo 141 or Bruen MK9 will make the weapons feel laser-accurate.

The Blue Dot can be unlocked for both the Holo and Reflex sights, so here’s everything you have to do and the fastest way to do it.

How to unlock Blue Dot for Holo Sights

To unlock the Blue Dot for Holo Sights, you need to get lots of kills using them. Fortunately, you don’t have to do anything crazy, just get kills and headshots with a variety of different Holo Sights.

Here’s everything you have to do:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using any Holo Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Holo Sight

How to unlock Blue Dot for Reflex Sights

Unlocking the Blue Dot for Reflex Sights will also require a plethora of kills.

Here’s everything you have to do to unlock the Blue Dot for Reflex Sights:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Monocle Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Monocle Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Reflex Sight
  • Get 500 kills using any Reflex Optic

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer

The quickest and easiest way to unlock the Blue Dot reticle is to play the Shoot the Ship playlist on Modern Warfare’s multiplayer.

This includes the two smallest and most chaotic maps MW has to offer: Shoot House and Shipment. While playing on either of these maps, you’ll constantly be fighting and can rack up an insane number of kills if the round goes on for long enough.

If these maps aren’t in 24/7 playlists, play extremely aggressively in regular Domination or Hardpoint using the necessary sight.

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot in Warzone

If you don’t own Modern Warfare and just play Warzone, it will take more time. You should avoid regular Warzone when grinding for the Blue Dot as these challenges require a lot of kills, so a single-life battle royale game is the worst place to do this.

Warzone players dropping in

The RNG nature of battle royale games means that you could die before even getting your loadout, or survive the whole game but only meet five other players.

The best mode for you to do this in is Warzone Rumble. This mode is essentially Team Deathmatch inside of Warzone, where you’ll have the opportunity to get much more kills. Equip the necessary optic, and specifically go for the required challenge. It will still take a while, but this will maximize your time.

If there’s no Warzone Rumble playlist currently available, Plunder is the next best thing. In Plunder, you begin with your already chosen loadout and can redeploy to your heart’s content.

Warzone plunder

To make the most of your time in Plunder, you should solely focus on kills and not worry about collecting money to win the game. If you require headshots, take an extra second when the enemy is knocked to secure that headshot kill.


To summarize:

  • Equip the necessary optic for the challenge
  • Play Shipment and Shoot House in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer
  • Play Warzone Rumble in battle royale
  • If there’s no Warzone Rumble playlist, play Plunder

With these tips, no matter if you only play Warzone, you’ll be able to unlock the cleanest optic Modern Warfare’s weapons have to offer.
