A ton of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 leaks have surfaced, with insider Tom Henderson claiming that at least four classic MW2 maps will make up the new map’s POIs. Of course, Call of Duty players can’t wait to play these classic maps again.

There have been rumors and leaks surrounding a sequel to Warzone for months, but aside from the devs confirming that it’s in development alongside Modern Warfare 2, we’ve heard very little. Instead, insiders have reportedly leaked a ton of details, saying it’ll be a brand-new game with no past integrations.

There have now been even more leaks claiming Warzone 2 will bring a firing range, feature Strongholds where players need to complete objectives to get their loadout, and will share a massive new map with the Escape from Tarkov-inspired DMZ mode.

This new map will reportedly feature classic Modern Warfare 2 maps such as High Rise and Terminal, and the CoD community are delighted with the news.

After Tom Henderson claimed that Warzone 2 would bring classic MW2 maps such as High Rise, Quarry, Terminal, and Afghan, the CoD community was buzzing with excitement. Players have been asking for more fan-favorite maps to be added to Warzone since Verdansk, so this comes as welcome news.

Warzone pro and streamer Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad was particularly excited, saying “OMG THIS IS WHAT I WANTED!”

After CharlieIntel tweeted the news it was clear the leak was welcome, with players replying with gifs, memes, and what they want to see from the new map.

Twitter user ‘JHensley55’ said: “One of the best things about Blackout was the POIs had call backs to COD from the past.” They explained that “They were fun to fight around and I loved how they were added and rotated to keep the map fresh.”

Before leaking all of these POIs, Henderson tweeted that Warzone 2’s map “looks more like Blackout” than it does Warzone, so players who loved Blackout and all of its classic maps should be in for a good time.

“COD has a rich archive of popular MP Maps that are NOT being effectively utilised as POI’s in Battle Royale,” tweeted Brodie Cromar. “The content exists. The implementation does not.”

Players also started imagining the scenarios that can play out around these classic maps. “Imagine parachuting off of Highrise during a fight to continue it in Favela,” said pade.

Henderson also said he expects plenty more Modern Warfare 2 maps to feature as POIs, and William Taylor Payne showed off Rundown and said “I need it!” Rundown, which is set in Brazil, would make sense as the Warzone 2 map will reportedly take place in Central America.

However, some players were less enthusiastic about the news, saying they would rather have new areas instead of ones that they have played before. “Why make a new game if you’re just gonna keep rehashing old content?” asked KingCashLXXV.

While it’s tough not to get caught up in the excitement, bear in mind that these are just leaks for now and nothing has been confirmed by Activision or Infinity Ward, so it’s worth tempering your expectations.

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.



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.
