Whitley in Warzone

Warzone Pacific Season 2 is here, and alongside plenty of changes to Caldera, it’s also brought the brand-new Whitley LMG. It’s shaping up to be a powerful choice, so here are all of the attachments and Perks you need to create the best Whitley loadout.

LMGs have been surprisingly effective in Warzone Pacific Caldera, with the Bren being the go-to weapon for almost all of Season 1. Now, another LMG has hit the scene with the Warzone Season 2 update – the Whitley.

Although having low mobility, the Whitley hits extremely hard and has the recoil control and accuracy to keep you on target at all times. Here are the best attachments and Perks to maximize the Whitley’s potential in Warzone Pacific Season 2.

Best Warzone Whitley loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: 28″ Gracey Mk. 9
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: CGC R4
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: Default
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Proficiency: Hardscope
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The Whitley LMG is slow by nature, so we’ve equipped it with attachments to make it as accurate and as powerful as possible.

The MX Silencer and 28″ Gracey Mk. 9 will hide you from the minimap and vastly increase the Whitley’s range, recoil control, and bullet velocity. Then, the G16 2.5x Optic is perfect for hitting targets at medium-long range.

The CGC R4 Stock further helps with recoil control and is only helped by the M1941 Hand Stop that offers no downsides.

The downsides to the Magazine attachments are pretty major so we haven’t equipped one, but the .30-06 45 Round Mags might be the best option if you don’t mind having fewer bullets in the mag. And the Lengthened Ammo is perfect for tracking targets at range.

We’ve also opted for the Polymer Grip and Hardscope Proficiency to allow your Whitley to get more accurate as you hold the trigger. And finally, Fully Loaded is always an incredibly powerful choice in Warzone as it gives you all the ammo you need.

Best Perks & Equipment to use with Warzone Whitley

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Tempered
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

For Perks, E.O.D is vital to defend yourself from incoming explosives. Then, the Tempered Perk will allow you to get fully plated faster, and use fewer. And finally, Amped is extremely important for quickly switching to an SMG such as the MP40.

And for Equipment, we recommend the Throwing Knife to quickly finish off downed enemies, and the Stim to rapidly get back to full health and move faster.

How to unlock Whitley in Warzone

The Whitley can be unlocked for free through the Warzone and Vanguard Season 2 Battle Pass at Tier 31.

This will take considerably longer than unlocking the KG M40 but keep playing Warzone or Vanguard, and you’ll soon get your hands on it.

Best alternatives to the Whitley in Warzone

The Whitley is a heavy LMG with low mobility, so you can use the Bren if you want something similar with better mobility. Or, you can use the classic Grau 5.56 which is a fantastic all-rounder in Season 2.

Warzone players call for major LMG buffs as Assault Rifles dominate meta

Warzone players are sick of Assault Rifles dominating the meta so are calling for LMGs to receive major buffs.

Although supposed to be long-range powerhouses, with a few exceptions, LMGs have never broken into Warzone’s meta for long. Claiming that LMGs have no identity, players are calling for major buffs.

Although weapons come and go from Warzone’s meta, how the guns behave has almost always stayed the same. Players always stick with a long-range weapon with low recoil and a large mag size, and a lightweight SMG with a fast TTK.

The long-range weapon has almost always been an Assault Rifle or an LMG that’s been built to act like an Assault Rifle, and players are growing tired of it. With a couple more Warzone Pacific seasons left and Warzone 2 on the horizon, players are calling for major LMG buffs so they’ll have their own identity.

Although a couple of LMGs such as the Bruen Mk9, MG82, and Bren have made their way into Warzone’s meta, the class as a whole has never come close to the popularity or efficiency of Assault Rifles.

Reddit user IonlyPlayAOE3 explained why LMGS have a “sh*t identity” in Warzone, laying much of the blame on Vanguard weapons’ ten attachments. They explained that an Assault Rifle can do everything that an LMG can, especially by holding at least 60 rounds.

They hope that LMGs will have much more of an identity in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, where Assault Rifles should “struggle against LMGs in long-range to ultra long range engagements.”

Many players agreed, wanting an Assault Rifle to become a middle ground between LMGs and SMGs. “They should lose to LMGs at range, and lose to SMGs up close, but be a decent middle ground,” explained Shielo34.

However, some worried that buffing LMGs would just make them replace Assault Rifles in the meta. Instead of giving LMGs straight buffs, some suggested lowering Assault Rifles’ magazine size.

Warzone players were starting to catch on to Season 4’s UGM-8 LMG and its burst-fire barrel, but the devs were quick to nip that in the bud with the June 30 update. With the NZ-41 now nerfed as well, we’ll need to wait and see how the post-nerf UGM fits into the Season 4 meta.

Warzone’s best attachments received major nerfs in June 30 update

Warzone’s most popular weapon attachments received notable nerfs in the Season 4 June 30 update patch, and could shake up the meta.

Published

Warzone Pacific Season 4 received a plethora of balancing adjustments in the June 30 patch, with some of the best attachments in the game getting significant nerfs.

The June 30 Warzone Pacific patch brought a ton of weapon balancing changes in Season 4, including a nerf to the popular NZ-41, which the developers felt had become too overpowered over the last season.

Other weapons like the H4 BlixenMarco 5, and UGM-8 were also changed in the update. Warzone players will be encouraged to alter their usual loadouts as the best attachments have also been nerfed.

Warzone Pacific Season 4’s June 30 update patch included nerfs to the Lengthened ammo type, MX Silencer muzzle, and M1941 Handstop underbarrel. These attachments are popular choices on Assault Rifle loadouts.

The MX Silencer and Lengthened ammo type boost your weapon’s accuracy and bullet velocity respectively. The June 30 update gave both of these attachments received a 3% reduction in muzzle velocity.

Meanwhile, the M1941 Handstop underbarrel’s recoil control has been changed to 3.5% down from 4%. While this seems like a minor change, it can actually greatly affect your loadout’s effectiveness in combat.

Since the MX Silencer, M1941 Handstop, and Lengthened are all popular choices for multiple weapons, it’s extremely likely that these attachment nerfs are going to greatly impact Warzone players’ loadout builds.

While the update brought various nerfs to different weapons and attachments, it also featured buffs to Vanguard’s Warzone weapons, as the 3-LineKar98k, and Type 99 all received an increase in bullet velocity.

Warzone expert reveals genius trick to instantly get Loadout Drop

Getting a Loadout Drop early is key to surviving Warzone’s early game but there’s a way to get your loadout in a matter of seconds.

Getting your loadout as soon as possible is vital to winning in Call of Duty: Warzone and pro player IceManIsaac has revealed a genius trick to getting your loadout in seconds.

Loadouts are what sets Warzone apart from all of the other battle royale games. Getting your own custom weapon gives a massive advantage over those with ground loot, so getting a Loadout Drop as soon as possible is key to winning.

It can be tough to get your Loadout Drop in the chaos of the early game, but a clever strategy from streamer IceManIsaac can get your team a Loadout Drop and free UAV in seconds.

To instantly get a Loadout Drop in Warzone, all players need to do is land on a Top Secret Contract in Fortune’s Keep. This will starts a random Contract such as Supply Run, Scavenger, or a Bounty, and you’ll get a whopping $8,000 as well as a UAV.

IceManIsaac explained that the Supply Run won’t task you with traveling across the map like in Caldera, it’ll actually be pretty near, so you’ll be able to land on it in a matter of seconds. A loadout only costs $7500 dollars so you can buy the loadout straight away and have a free UAV to see any approaching enemies.

While doable in Solos, this strategy works best in squads. If one player picks up the Contract and the rest float in the air to complete the task, the process will be even quicker. Even if it’s a Bounty, all of the players can land on top of the target and it won’t matter if they die in the process because of the Resurgence mechanic.

Fortune’s Keep is pure chaos in the early game, so securing yourself a loadout before anyone else will be sure to set you up for success.
