A recent report has highlighted the significant growth of developers Raven Software. The main team behind Call of Duty: Warzone has increased their staff by approximately 50% in the last year to presumably cope with the demands of Warzone’s popularity.

It cannot be understated just how monumental Warzone’s first 12-15 months have been in the video game industry. Call of Duty was already a well-established franchise known around the world, but now Warzone, the free-to-play battle royale experience, has taken CoD to new heights.

Activision has entrusted Raven Software with the most control to steer the ship, and the game has been so successful that the company’s employee count has increased by over 100 since August 2020 – with more to come.

According to a report by VGC, “the studio (Raven Software) has hired over 100 staff in less than a year, with at least 40 more roles still set to be filled.”

The battle royale shooter has experienced incredible growth since its launch in March 2020. The game has continued to expand its player base with the game now having had at least 100 million people playing Warzone during its lifetime.

VGC says that Raven Software’s LinkedIn shows that over 350 people work for the company, and at least 10 of those have been in the last year.

They said: “In 2015, a company photograph (see below) taken during celebrations for Raven’s 25th anniversary showed around 150 employees, which suggests that it could have doubled in size in six years.

“And the company is currently advertising a further 41 open positions, which could take its total number of employees to well over 400 – potentially near-tripling its staff count compared to 2015.”

Despite different problems troubling the game such as God Mode glitches enabling invincibility and invisibility glitches, people still continue to spend hours enjoying the battle royale game.

Not only that, but Warzone regularly plays host to pro tournaments with thousands of dollars on the line. With rumors of the new Call of Duty: Vanguard title in the works, it seems like Warzone is set to be expanded with new World War II content.

Warzone player encounters hilarious Sentry Turret glitch

After coming up with a high IQ play, one Warzone player was severely punished for their clever use of a Sentry Turret with a glitch.

Creative use of a Sentry Turret Scorestreak ended in disaster for one Warzone player as the game seemingly rejected their inventive idea and blew it up instead.

We’ve all seen a Trophy System thrown onto a vehicle before as it allows a player to roam around freely in their vehicle, and the equipment will blow up any incoming projectile threats.

However, one Call of Duty: Warzone player decided to go one step further and place their Sentry Turret Scorestreak on a Big Bertha. The results were probably not what the player was expecting at all.

AdamMarsdenUK is the name of our unlucky player who thought they were onto a cool new play in Warzone Season 4.

In the middle of a game of Plunder, they climbed onto the hood of their Big Bertha truck and slapped down a fearsome Sentry Turret to guard it.

Instead of defensive hardware that will swat away any grenades or lethals, the Sentry Turret would be looking to chop down any enemies with a relentless barrage of bullets.

Strangely, when they entered the vehicle, the whole truck began to glitch uncontrollably, and it was as if the truck had been hit by the world’s most deadly earthquake.

Instead of driving around normally, the truck was throwing itself around the vicinity rather violently, to the point the player had to quickly get out of the sentient vehicle.

In one last act of defiance, the truck rolled itself up a tree, came back to the ground, and exploded in amusing fashion.

One reply to the Reddit thread said: “This could be a good trap if you let someone come up behind it to steal it.”

It’s unknown if this was a one-off, isolated incident. We would suggest you err on the side of caution if you intend to put down a Sentry Turret on your Bertha and attempt to drive with it.

Having a strong close-quarters weapon can be the difference between losing and winning a 1v1 in Call of Duty: Warzone, which is why you need the best loadout for the Streetsweeper Shotgun in Season 4 Reloaded.

After becoming ground loot in Warzone Season 3, players began to realize the absolute ruining potential of the Streetsweeper Shotgun. For an automatic Shotgun that can unleash one hammer blast after another, it has next-to-no recoil and is simply devastating. While it is no longer ground loot, it is still an extremely powerful close-quarters weapon.

With enough trigger discipline, you can take out entire squads with just one magazine. Be careful when firing, though, as the reload time for the Streetsweeper is one of the longest in any Call of Duty game, ever. With enough time and patience, it’s a crucial weapon that can lead to plenty of Warzone Victories.

Here is the best loadout for the Streetsweeper Shotgun for Warzone Season 4 Reloaded.

Best Warzone Streetsweeper loadout attachments

  • Muzzle Agency Choke
  • Barrel 13″ Reinforced Heavy
  • Laser – Ember Sighting Point
  • Ammunition – STANAG 18 Round
  • Stock – Marathon Stock

The Agency Choke provides this loadout with a great deal of damage range, which will make sure that the damage falloff for this Shotgun does not lead to your demise in medium-range fights.

Combined with the 13″ Reinforced Heavy barrel, this setup will give you the best damage range possible and will allow you to take down enemies even if they are not straight in front of you.

Hip-firing is one of the most important aspects of using a Shotgun, and the Ember Sighting Point will give you an insane boost to hip-firing accuracy allowing you not even to have to aim down the sights to hit accurate shots on targets.

Having the STANAG 18 Round magazine will give you all of the ammo you need to wipe out an entire enemy team without having to worry about reloading.

Finally, the Marathon Stock will provide you with a beneficial boost in mobility, which will allow you to move quickly around the map and get in close to destroy enemies.

Best perks to use with Warzone Streetsweeper class

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

You will find that many gunfights in Warzone start with enemy players throwing different kinds of explosives at you to break armor before they rush. Using E.O.D. will reduce the amount of damage you take from enemy explosives and make sure you are not as weak if you get hit.

While the best Streetsweeper Shotgun Warzone loadout will be a vital asset in close-quarters fights, you will want to use Overkill to makes sure you have a longer-range weapon as well.

A second loadout can then be used to attain Ghost and make yourself undetectable by UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Getting caught switching between weapons can result in you getting eliminated, which is why using Amped will help greatly by increasing your weapon swap speed and make sure you have the right weapon for the job as fast as possible.

How to unlock the Streetsweeper

Players who would like to add this shotgun to their inventory will have to get 3 kills without dying using shotguns in 15 different matches.

You can complete this unlock challenge in either Black Ops Cold War or Warzone, but we recommend Black Ops Cold War, as it will be much easier in multiplayer matches than battle royale games.

Warzone players call for Payload game mode to get major changes

Warzone’s latest game mode, Payload, introduces a fun new way to play. However, it seems players have some issues with how it operates.

Warzone Payload issues

Warzone’s latest game mode, Payload, has officially launched as the battle royale’s first team-based objective mode, but there are some things that players aren’t too happy with.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded has revitalized the game with a new patch adding some weapons like the OTs 9 and even various weapon buffs and nerfs to keep the game fresh.

As well as this, Season 4 Reloaded has also seen a new team-based game mode called Payload, which some players have already found some issues with.

Warzone Season 4 Payload mode

Introduced on July 22 as a new way to play Warzone, the new mode features a similar format to the Payload objective in Overwatch.

For those who are not familiar, the mode requires two teams, one attacking and one defending. In Warzone’s case, there is a total of 40 players in the match, 20 per team.

The attacking team must escourt a vehicle towards a final location, while the defending team will try their best to stop them through constructing obstacles and taking out enemies.

Although this sounds great to some, there are glaring issues with the mode players would like addressed, especially as the mode is a great break from battle royale and a good mode for leveling up your weapons, especially as players can respawn on death.

Reddit user surazalazarus brought the issue upon a post entitled “the new Payload game mode is terrible,” a fairly radical opinion, so what’s the issue?

Essentially, the issue is that players are unable to mute squad members. With teams of 20, that can be quite frustrating as you can end up being distracting and bombarded with players communicating.

Further, the more glaring issue is that there is no in-match joining, which means one team could be left at a severe disadvantage if players start leaving the game.

This is an issue that Raven Software will most likely try and fix soon, as the new mode does offer a fun new way to play the game, with even surazalazarus saying it’s an “interesting idea” regardless of the previous comment calling it “terrible.”

Clearly, there is something here for Payload in Warzone, so hopefully, the developers can tune these issues and make the quality of life better for this specific mode so that players can enjoy it while it is in the game.

Check out our guide on the new Payload mode so you and your team can get the win.
