Best DP27 loadout for Warzone Pacific Caldera

Here are all of the attachments and Perks you need to build the best DP27 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Published

Dp27 Warzone Pacific loadout

LMGs have received a ton of attention in Warzone recently and the DP27 could be next up as a high-powered option. Here are all of the attachments and Perks you need to create the best DP27 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Warzone Pacific Season 1’s mid-season update brought several meta-changing buffs and nerfs to balance Warzone weapons which led to players searching for alternatives to the Bren.

The Bren was the best long-range weapon in Warzone Pacific for some time but a recent nerf leveled the playing field. The Bren remains an excellent choice but players have come to love what the DP27 has to offer.

Here are all of the attachments and Perks you’ll need to get the most out of this unique LMG.

Best Warzone DP27 loadout attachments

DP27 Attachments Warzone loadout
  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 680mm B02D
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: ZAC S3 TAK
  • Underbarrel: m1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 5mm Sakura 47 Round Pans
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk: Hardscope
  • Perk: Fully Loaded

LMGs have been great in Caldera thanks to their excellent range and accuracy, therefore this loadout will focus on maximizing those key elements at the cost of mobility. For starters, the m1941 Hand Stop, Hardscope Perk, Polymer Grip, and the Kovalevskaya 680mm B02D barrel all contribute to making the DP27 a laser beam with no recoil.

The barrel also increases bullet velocity which makes it kill extremely fast at long-range when paired with the Lengthened ammo type. The 5mm Sakura 47 Round Pans are the magazine of choice because they don’t increase the weapon’s weight like the other options available. With Fully Loaded, you won’t be short on ammo when claiming your loadout.

The G16 x2.5 optic is the standard choice across Warzone Pacific and the MX Silencer will increase accuracy and keep your shots suppressed at the cost of ADS speed. The ZAC S3 TAK stock is a key attachment because it increases the DP27’s naturally low movement speed while also increasing initial accuracy and recoil control.

Best Warzone DP27 Perks & Equipment

Warzone perks
  • Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stim

Opting for Overkill prior to Ghost will set you up with a much-needed close-range SMG that pairs well with the long-range DP27. We suggest the Welgun or MP40 as top-tier SMG options.

Cold-Blooded is a must given how common Combat Scout has become across Warzone Pacific and it’ll keep you from being traced. Lastly, Amped will allow for faster weapon swapping which is needed given the LMG’s lack of versatility.

The recent Stim buff makes the Tactical equipment hard to ignore while a Throwing Knife will allow you to confirm kills in close quarters.

How to unlock the DP27 in Warzone Pacific

DP27 Vanguard LMG

Luckily, the DP27 is available to players at the early Level of 18 which is great news for players who do not own Vanguard. Warzone players might want to use this trick to level up weapons as quickly as possible.

As of now, there aren’t any upcoming Double XP events scheduled across Warzone and Vanguard but you can always check back here to see when the next one will be.

Best alternatives to Warzone DP27

The Bren remains the top LMG choice for those who have no interest in discovering other LMG options. Also, the Automaton is experiencing a second spell in the spotlight as a recent buff has made it viable once more.

You can also turn to the Type 11 if you do not wish to look outside of the LMG category.

Warzone TikTok loadout turns FiNN LMG into “insane” no recoil SMG

A TikTok user has found a brillant loadout for the FiNN LMG in Warzone Pacific Season 1 that turns it into an “insane” SMG.

Published

A new Warzone TikTok loadout for the FiNN LMG has been found which turns it into a crazy no recoil SMG.

Warzone Pacific Season 1 has quite a few options when it comes to SMGs, especially after the introduction of the Welgun in the mid-season update.

While the focus has definitely been on Vanguard weapons since the integration, now that the playlist updates have brought back the standard battle royale mode for all squad sizes, players are using Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War guns once again.

With that being said, one player may have found a great loadout for the FiNN LMG which turns it into a beastly SMG.

Warzone “no recoil” FiNN LMG TikTok loadout

Modern Warfare FiNN in Warzone

TikTok user liquidity posted a video showing off a new FiNN LMG loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1 that turns the weapon into a great SMG option.

Here are the attachments you’ll need to make this “Insane” Warzone TikTok FiNN SMG loadout:

  • Barrel: FTAC VC-8 Harrier Adverse
  • Muzzel: Lightweight Suppressor
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Stock: No Stock

The content creator even calls the weapon “meta,” showing off a clip of him destroying players on Rebirth Island with it.

This weapon is recommended for medium to close range, and as you can see from the gameplay, it’s a loadout that will work well on Rebirth Island due to the more close-ranged combat.

Definitely give this loadout a try if you’re bored of using SMGs like the MP40, PPSH-41, and Owen Gun, which was recently named the most underrated SMG in the game.

If you’re interested in a more orthodox loadout for the FiNN LMG, or just want to know how you can unlock it, check out our guide on the best loadout for it.

How to level up guns fast in Warzone: Quickest Weapon XP strategies

Here are the fastest ways to level up Mw, Cold War, and Vanguard weapons in Warzone to help you dominate your enemies.

Published

Warzone Operators in Pacific Caldera

Call of Duty: Warzone has plenty of amazing weapons to use, and they all perform better with the right attachments. Here are the quickest ways to level up Modern Warfare, Cold War, and Vanguard weapons in Warzone Pacific. 

Leveling up comes in all forms for Call of Duty whether it’s a new season’s Battle Pass, trying to reach a new Prestige Level, or the weapons themselves. Most attachments will give you huge advantages in gameplay, so players are naturally keen to unlock them for their favorite, and best, guns in Warzone.

Vanguard’s weapons have around 70 levels each, so they take an incredibly long time to level up. Several methods to earn rapid XP have popped up in the past, but Warzone’s devs are always quick to shut them down.

Luckily we’ve found consistent and quick ways to level up weapons in Warzone that will have your guns max level in no time. 

Fastest ways to level up weapons in Warzone

Complete Warzone Contracts

When everyone drops into Caldera or Rebirth Island, the map is filled with many contracts that players can activate. These are optional undertakings that players can choose to participate in to earn more XP and money during the game.

Warzone’s battle royale mode contains the following contracts for players to pick up and complete:

  • Bounty
  • Big Game Bounty
  • Most Wanted
  • Recon
  • Scavenger
  • Supply Drop
  • Supply Run

As long as you have your weapon equipped, then completing these objectives will give you additional XP that contributes towards your weapon of choice.

We recommend completing Supply Runs in Helicopters or cars, as you’ll be able to pick up a ton of XP just by driving around the map.

Play Plunder & Rebirth Island – NOT Battle Royale

If you want to use your completed weapons to rack up some serious Call of Duty: Warzone wins then fair enough. But if you’re still in the process of building the best Warzone loadouts, then we advise against playing battle royale.

With Warzone Pacific’s Loadout Drop delay, your chances of getting your own weapons have been drastically reduced. You’ll need to survive for almost seven minutes using weapons found on the floor, so there’s no guarantee that you’ll get your weapons.

Instead, engage in some of Warzone’s more respawn-friendly modes such as Plunder or Rebirth Island that allow players to either spawn in with their weapons or get a Loadout Drop early. You should also be able to net far more kills in these respawn game modes. 

Get kills in the pre-game lobby

While it won’t give a ton of progress, getting kills in the pre-game lobby will give you a nice XP boost to start the match. 

Whilst the timer ticks down, you’ll typically see many players freefall to the ground, or float down to the ground in a straight line.

This is a sure sign that the player is AFK, and is probably preoccupied on their phone as they wait for the match to begin. But this is an opportunity for you to earn some cheeky XP, as kills in the pre-match lobby still reward you with XP.

Take advantage of Double XP weekends & Tokens

Call of Duty devs usually offers Double XP weekends around big updates, where players can earn Double Weapon, Battle Pass, Operator, and regular XP. 

We recommend making sure you’re equipping the weapons you want to level up during these weekends as you’ll get a massive boost without having to use any of your Double XP Tokens. 

And of course, you can use these Double XP Tokens when there’s no Double XP weekend active.

Use the Surplus Perk on Vanguard guns

Vanguard comes with the Surplus Perk, which boosts your XP earned by around 1.5x. 

Make sure you’re running Surplus on any weapon you want to level up, and you’ll find yourself earning much more XP. Plus, this actually stacks with Double XP weekends, so you can earn roughly 3x the regular XP.
