Warzone Sykov Pistol

The Sykov Pistol, or Makarov, has dominated Warzone and Modern Warfare. Here are the meta attachments and perks to win all close-range engagements with this unique sidearm.

In a quiet update on April 15, the long-awaited Sykov Pistol was added to Modern Warfare and Warzone. Along with this powerful Pistol came new Radiation Zones that are spreading across Verdansk and turning players into Zombies.

Metas usually take a few days or even weeks to form, but the Sykov became the go-to weapon overnight. Warzone’s developer responded to its dominance quickly, nerfing their most powerful attributes in April 19’s 1.35 update.

Even with these nerfs, the Sykov Pistol is the best secondary weapon in the game. Here are the best attachments and perks to run with Warzone’s Sykov Pistol in Season 2, going into Warzone Season 3.

Best Warzone Sykov attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Sorokin 140mm Auto
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Ammunition: 20 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: VLK Elita

This Sykov is built to be the perfect complement for any Ghost class, even being able to outgun an FFAR 1 at close range.

To start, the Monolithic Suppressor will grant you extra range, meaning you don’t need to be directly in the enemy’s face to get the kill. And the 5mW Laser will give you much more hip-fire accuracy if you’re in a pinch.

Unfortunately, the Akimbo perk for the Sykov has been nerfed, so you’re better off only running one Sykov. To improve its recoil control, you should add the VLK Elita Rear Grip, and the Sorokin 140mm Auto barrel is still perfect for melting players’ armor off.

And following the nerfs in the 1.35 update, the 80 Round Drum mags will significantly lower your mobility, so the 20 Round Mags will be ideal.

Best perks to run with Warzone’s Sykov

Warzone overkill perk
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

You’ll spend a lot of time in enemies’ faces while using the Sykov, which means you’re in prime range to get taken out by explosives. Running E.O.D will greatly reduce explosive damage, meaning you can run through a bombardment of explosives to secure the kill.

The Sykov Pistol is a secondary weapon, so you don’t need Overkill to combine it with a primary weapon. Ghost will hide you from the minimap and Heartbeat Sensors, which is invaluable in Warzone.

As you’ll only be using this sidearm when fighting up close, you’ll need to run a weapon for medium-long range. Amped will allow you to rapidly change your weapons, getting the right gun out for any situation.

How to unlock the Sykov in Warzone & Modern Warfare

Sykov Pistol in Modern Warfare and Warzone

To unlock the Sykov Pistol in Modern Warfare and Warzone, you have to get 4 kills while using pistols in 5 different matches.

This is best completed in Hardcore mode of Modern Warfare’s multiplayer, but can also easily be completed in Plunder. Check out our full guide for some tips and tricks to complete this easier.

Best alternatives to the Sykov Pistol

The Sykov Pistol excels in close-range combat thanks to its full-auto mode, but there are other weapons that fit the bill. If you’re looking to dominate up close, the AS VAL melts players at close range. Also, if you’re looking for other pistols, the akimbo Diamattis will provide similar firepower.


It’s expected that the Sykov will dominate the close range meta going into Season 3, so this Pistol is well worth unlocking and ranking up.

Best Oden loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

The Oden deals significant damage at range, so here are the attachments and perks to make the best Warzone Oden loadout for Season 3.

Best Warzone Oden Loadout

With a low fire rate but serious damage, the Oden is a solid choice of weapon to use in Warzone Season 3. Here are the attachments and perks to maximize its potential and make the best Warzone Oden loadout.

As Warzone has developed, fights are often decided at range. Long-range guns such as the AUG, Kar98k, and AMAX have shot up in popularity, and if built right, the Oden can contend with any of these weapons. Modern Warfare’s Assault Rifles are usually fast firing with low recoil. Still, the Oden prioritizes damage per bullet over fire rate, allowing it to blast away enemies’ armor at any range.

We’ve put together the attachments and perks you should run to dominate Verdansk ’84 with the best Warzone Oden loadout.

Best Warzone Oden loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Colossus Suppressor
  • Barrel: Oden Factory 730mm
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 30 Round Mags

The Oden dominates in the long lines of sight that Warzone offers. With a slow fire rate but a powerful punch, the Oden is devastating in the hands of an accurate player. We’ve built this Oden to maximize its accuracy and damage at range, making it a great choice for any player.

To increase the weapon’s effective damage range and recoil control, we’ve added the Colossus Suppressor. While large and heavy, this silencer improves the Oden’s recoil control, bullet velocity, and damage range. For a bonus, you’ll be hidden from the minimap when firing.

To further improve its damage range, the Oden Factory 730mm barrel is a perfect choice. Your damage over range will be improved further, but you won’t be slowed down as much as if you use the 810mm option. It’s worth using the popular Commando Foregrip for extra recoil control, too.

For optics, there’s no better scope than the VLK 3.0x Optic. This magnified scope offers great visibility at all ranges, which will make aiming for the head and chest much easier when using the Oden at a distance. And finally, to make sure you can drop several enemies before reloading, the 30 Round Mags will be necessary.

Best perks for Warzone Oden class

best perks Warzone Oden class

Perk 1 – Double Time

The Oden is one of the heaviest Assault Rifles Warzone has to offer, so if you want some extra mobility while navigating the map, Double Time is the perk for you. You’ll be able to Tactical Sprint for longer and crouch walks faster to help strafe in engagements.

Perk 2 – Overkill/Ghost

As this Oden is built for long-range, it’s worth running an SMG or Shotgun for fighting up close, and Overkill will allow you to carry two primary weapons.

Once you have your guns, you should try to get Ghost from your next loadout to be hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Perk 3 – Amped

And finally, with the weight of the Oden, weapon swapping will be agonizingly slow, so Amped will remove that delay, allowing you to switch guns instantly.

How to unlock the Oden

Players looking to make the best Warzone Oden loadout will first need to unlock this Assault Rifle. Interested individuals can unlock this weapon by reaching level 28 in either the Call of Duty battle royale or Modern Warfare, so a couple of hours of playing should have you adding this weapon to your inventory without any trouble.

How to play Warzone Strat Roulette

You can set yourself fun challenges in Warzone with random Loadouts and special rules by playing Strat Roulette, so here’s how.

How to play Warzone Strat Roulette

Warzone players have been shaking up their gameplay with fun challenges set by Strat Roulette, so here’s how to play.

While Warzone is known for being uber-competitive at times, sometimes it’s fun to play with off-meta weapons and strategies for a change of scenery and a unique challenge. With over a hundred weapons to choose from and a ton that are viable in Season 3, it can be tough to choose which weapons to deploy.

This is where the Warzone Strat Roulette website comes in. By using this site, you can randomize your Loadout, Drop Zone, Vehicle, and give yourself a Special Rule.

Here’s how to play Warzone Strategy Roulette.

Warzone loadout drops

Playing Warzone Strat Roulette is simple:

  1. Head to Warzone Strat Roulette on your browser
  2. Make sure each category is selected, or deselect the options you don’t want
  3. Hit ‘Roll’
  4. Play CoD: Warzone and stick to the Loadout, Drop Zone, Vehicle, and Special Rule you’re assigned

The Loadout option will assign you with weapons from your loadout or force you to stick to specific Tiers of Ground Loot. Attachments are completely up to you but you could end with some of the best loadouts, or be left stuck with only using common weapons from the floor.

And, as it says on the tin, the Drop Zone will give you a random named location to land in. However, you should bear in mind that the Drop Zone list hasn’t been updated for Season 3 and Verdansk ’84, so if it says ‘Quarry,’ you should go to Salt Mine, and ‘Dam’ is Summit.

Whatever Vehicle the randomizer lands on is the only one you can use for the game, which may be tough if you get the ‘Vehicular Manslaughter’ Special Rule, in which you must run over every enemy you see.

Special Rules are set challenges to complete during the match, ranging from a mild inconvenience to downright frustrating.

Here are some of the options available:

  • Farmer: Jump from the plane with the AFK’ers
  • Lounge Chair: You can only get kills from a vehicle (no roadkills, shooting from a seat)
  • Heads Up: You must fire at least 3 warning shots close to the enemy before hitting them
  • Afraid of Heights: You can’t go above the first story of any building.

Bear in mind that there are no rewards or incentives offered, it’s simply a tool to give yourself a fun challenge inside Warzone.

How to get Warzone’s $100 M.O.A.B bundle: Date, contents

Call of Duty: Warzone is set to receive a massive bundle containing a huge amount of items for $100. Here’s what we know about the M.O.A.B bundle.

The “Mother Of All Bundles” is on its way to Call of Duty: Warzone, and this is everything we know about the gigantic, $100 bundle of cosmetics and goodies.

Speculation is running rampant about the nature of Call of Duty’s epic M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle that is set to be one of, if not the, biggest bundles in Call of Duty history.

It’s caught the public’s attention due to its hefty $100 price tag, which begs the question as to what it actually contains. With hot announcements happening such as Rambo and John McClane being revealed as surprise inclusions to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, a mega bundle is just the tip of the iceberg.

When will Warzone’s M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle release?

At this moment in time, we’re not exactly sure when players can expect to buy it as Activision has given no other further details regarding its potential release date at this juncture.

We can only speculate that it will coincide with the launch Warzone Season 3 Reloaded or with the beginning of Season 4.

Once we have the official date we will update this page.

What’s in the M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle in CoD?

cod cold war battle pass

The Official Call of Duty store is bucking the trend for Call of Duty bundles by keeping the M.O.A.B details a secret right now, so they currently don’t want people to know what’s in it.

If you view the bundle on the Call of Duty store, you will see the name of the bundle, the price, and that’s it. But the overriding thought is that given that it’s the “Battle Pass” bundle, the $100 M.O.A.B bundle is set to include every item from all of the previous Battle Passes for Warzone.

It’ll be great for players to catch up on any previously missed content that is now unobtainable.

How much will the Warzone M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle cost?

The graphic for the bundle indicates that players will have to part with a whopping 10,000 COD Points if they want to acquire this mysterious set of items.

To break this down, as previously stated, the M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle will cost players $99 or £84.99 to provide themselves with the necessary COD Points.

Details are obviously a bit scarce at the moment regarding the M.O.A.B Battle Pass bundle, so we will be updating this page with additional information once more is known about it.

Also, learn more about COD Points and how they work.
