The TEC-9 is a unique, close-range SMG that is currently being overlooked in Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded. If you’re interested in giving it a go, here are the attachments and Perks you need to make the best Warzone Tec-9 loadout.

While the TEC-9 SMG was added in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5, it is still a powerful close-quarters weapon in Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded.

This unique SMG has three modes of fire so that it can suit a wide variety of playstyles, but its close-range capabilities make it great for Rebirth Island.

Although it’s been overlooked since the Vanguard integration, as there are so many great SMG options, you may want to give this weapon a go. Here are the attachments and Perks you’ll need to create the best Warzone Pacific Tec-9 loadout for Season 2 Reloaded.

Best Warzone TEC-9 loadout

Best Warzone TEC-9 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Full Auto Repeater
  • Barrel: 4.9″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 48 Rnd

What makes the TEC-9 so unique is that its muzzle attachments change the fire mode. It comes as semi-automatic by default, but you can also make it full auto or even burst-fire.

We’ve opted for the Full Auto Repeater muzzle in the best Warzone Tec-9 loadout, as this allows it to compete with Warzone’s best SMGs. The only downside is that it won’t be suppressed but instead features the Position Concealment bonus, which means your dot on the minimap will disappear as soon as you stop firing.

For the rest of the best Warzone Tec-9 loadout, we’ve gone with the standard meta SMG loadout. The 4.9″ Task Force barrel increases the damage range and velocity, allowing you to take on targets at slightly further ranges.

Then, we’ve gone for the Tiger Team Spotlight and Raider Stock for a huge mobility boost in the best Warzone Tec-9 loadout, allowing you to get around the map quickly and snap onto enemies. And finally, the STANAG 48 Rnd magazine will account for the fast fire rate of the full auto barrel.

Best Warzone TEC-9 Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Quick Fix
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

First off, we have Quick Fix, which is now an absolute essential Perk thanks to its buff in the Season 2 Reloaded update. Quick Fix will regenerate your health upon killing enemies and inserting plates, which is perfect for this mobile class.

As the best Warzone TEC-9 loadout is a close-range SMG build, you’ll want to pair it with something for medium-long distance fights. Overkill will allow you to grab two primary weapons.

Lastly, we have Amped, as you’ll be running a long-range weapon alongside the TEC-9, this will allow you to swap weapons faster, increasing the speed at which you can shoot enemies first.

As for the Equipment, we’ve chosen Throwing Knives to end downed enemies fast and Stims so that you can keep your health high and stay fast on your feet when pushing teams.

Most recent TEC-9 buffs and nerfs in Warzone

There have not been any recent buffs or nerfs to the Tec-9 in the Call of Duty battle royale, but we will update this section with any changes Raven Software makes to the Black Ops Cold War SMG.

How to unlock the TEC-9

The TEC-9 was available to all players for free in the Season 5 Battle Pass. However, players can still unlock the TEC-9 SMG by completing either one of the following challenges:

  • Warzone/ Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer – Using SMGs, get 2 Headshot kills in 15 different completed matches.
  • Black Ops Cold War Zombies – Using SMGs, Eliminate 30 Elite enemies.

Best alternatives

There are plenty of viable SMGs you can use in Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded, with even the Fennec getting praise for its performance on Rebirth Island.

The MAC-10 has remained consistently strong throughout Warzone, and the Welgun is a dominating force when it comes to close-quarter battles.


If you’re interested in performance, not only will creating better classes help you improve, but also an in-depth look at your Warzone stats might give you some ideas on bettering your game.

How to open Fortune’s Keep wine bottle Vault with Warzone Easter Egg

Warzone Season 4’s new Fortune’s Keep map is full of Easter Eggs to discover. Here’s how to open the wine bottle Vault.

Published

on

Valuable loot is waiting behind Fortune’s Keep secret wine bottle Vault, but you’ll need to complete the Easter Egg to get in. Here’s a guide to opening the Vault on Warzone Season 4’s Fortune’s Keep.

Warzone Season 4 delivered a ton of map-related content with major changes hitting Caldera and the release of Fortune’s Keep. From the Call of Duty community to top players, most seem to be enjoying the new map with an overwhelmingly positive initial reaction.

If you’re still getting to grips with the new territory, you’ll want to keep in mind that there are a ton of secrets to uncover including a Zombie summoning Easter Egg. Much like Caldera and Verdansk before it, Fortune’s Keep also has a hidden Vault to discover.

How to open wine bottle Vault on Warzone Fortune’s Keep

If you haven’t already discovered this secret Vault on your own, it’ll be worth a shot as the contents hidden in the Vault can set you up for a victory.

There will likely be several players attempting to open the Vault so you should prepare for engagements along the way, but here’s how it’s done:

  1. Find two wine bottles around the Terraces POI
  2. Head to the Keep POI
  3. Place the two bottles on the empty shelf across from the dining table
  4. The secret door will open allowing you to loot the Vault

Opening the Vault is easy enough as your most difficult task will be to locate the wine bottles. You’ll want to look on tables and shelves within the Terraces POI for the wine bottles as they’ll appear on these surfaces frequently.

There’s no denying that the Keep POI is one of the map’s high-traffic areas, so making it in and out of the Vault safely is no guarantee. The required shelf is located right next to the massive table in the dining area of Keep. Players will likely attempt to ambush you on your way out of the Vault.

Warzone Fortune’s Keep Vault Easter Egg loot

Once you get the Fortune’s Keep Vault open you could be in a hurry to loot up as quickly as possible. Here are the items you can expect to find inside the Vault:

  • $5000 cash
  • Legendary Combat Shield
  • Legendary Skal Crusher
  • Killstreak
  • 3 weapon blueprints

The Killstreak and 3 weapon blueprints will vary from match to match, but it’s safe to say that all the loot in the Vault can propel you to Warzone success, especially in the early game when those weapon blueprints will do some serious damage.

Going through the hard work of finding the wine bottles and getting the Vault open can certainly pay off. However, if you’re not interested in putting in the leg work, you can always wait for unsuspecting players to open the Keep Vault and attempt to steal their loot.

Best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4

The Warzone H4 Blixen is a great option in Season 4, especially with our recommended attachments, equipment, and Perks.

Published

on

After being introduced last season, the H4 Blixen remains a strong SMG choice in Warzone Season 4. To make the most of this devastating weapon, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout.

Warzone Season 4 is here, and it’s gone through great lengths to shake up the CoD battle royale. Raven have introduced a new Rebirth Island-style map called Fortune’s Keep, and even major Perk changes.

Vanguard weapons have been dominating the new season, and the H4 Blixen is no exception. Despite the new Marco 5 SMG coming in strong, the Blixen definitely still holds its own.

This powerful and accurate SMG could easily challenge the close to mid-range meta, but before you drop straight into the action, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Bergstrom 17″ F3
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Perfectionist
  • Perk 2: Quick

We kick off our best H4 Blixen loadout with the Recoil Booster, as the SMG is relatively slow-firing compared to other guns in its class, so this increases the fire rate and lowers the TTK. Then, we went for the Bergstrom 17″ F3 Barrel, m1941 Hand Stop, and Polymer Grip to increase accuracy in mid-range fights.

Next up we opted for the Removed Stock option for a big boost in movement, ADS, and sprint-to-fire speed, all of which are vital at close range. In terms of Optics, we felt a standard Slate Reflector is a solid choice, but this can be switched for whichever sight you are most comfortable with.

7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags are a great choice for the H4 Blixen, as the gun’s laser-like accuracy pairs nicely with the attachment’s boost in headshot damage. Loading up with Lengthened ammo also raises the bullet velocity and lowers the TTK even further.

Finally, we recommend Perfectionist for Perk 1, to offer up one last boost in recoil control, and Quick to make you incredibly mobile in tight-nit situations.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Tempered
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

Equipping Double Time will increase the duration of Tactical Sprint, allowing you to move across Caldera much faster, making rushing enemy teams a breeze.

The H4 Blixen is an ideal Sniper support weapon, so we recommend running Overkill to bring along a HDR or AX-50. Then, for your second option, run Tempered to help you recover to max health quicker after a gunfight.

Finally, the Amped Perk is a must to let you switch between your two primaries as quickly as possible, so you’re never caught with the wrong weapon for too long.

When it comes to Equipment, Semtex are an easy-to-use lethal that can score quick kills, while Stims offer a useful health boost to get you out of a pinch.

How to unlock H4 Blixen in Warzone

Warzone players can unlock the H4 Blixen by getting three Slide kills in a single match 15 times.

The easiest way to complete this challenge is by hopping into Vanguard multiplayer and racking up the kills. But if you only play Warzone, a mode like Clash is probably your best bet.

Best alternatives to H4 Blixen in Warzone

If the H4 Blixen isn’t cutting it for you, there are plenty of other meta SMGs that might suit you better.

Both the MP40 and Owen Gun are two of the game’s best Sniper supports, and can both hold their own at mid-range as well.
