FaZe Swagg claims “fan-favorite” Warzone weapon has returned to the meta

Warzone’s AMAX hasn’t been the best option since it was nerfed. FaZe Swagg tried it out recently and now claims it’s returning to the meta.

FaZe Swagg’s recent video highlighted the Warzone Season 6 AMAX after its nerfs in previous seasons. Although the weapon isn’t as strong as it was, it currently has one of the highest weapon K/D’s which could see it return to the meta.

Warzone has had a lot of crazy weapon metas over the seasons with Black Ops Cold War. Players have even been able to get a taste of how strong these weapons were through the Operation Flashback LTM.

From the DMR to the MAC-10, a lot of these strong weapons were nerfed and knocked off the top spot.

With that being said, FaZe Swagg decided to go back and give the AMAX a try in Warzone Season 6, which he claims is “one of the most loved guns of all time.”

Although many felt the AMAX had to be nerfed at the time, FaZe Swagg shared his opinions on the nerfs in his recent video.

It seems Swagg felt the changes to the AMAX were unfair, believing that the AMAX was one of the “only guns in Warzone’s history that genuinely took skill and was good.” FaZe Swagg felt as if the nerfs affected high-skill players, as “only really good players used the AMAX.”

Although the Warzone meta is no doubt about to change with the upcoming Vanguard integration and new map, FaZe Swagg decided to give the AMAX a chance and the result may be surprising to some.

In the video, Swagg explains why he decided to try out the AMAX. It turns out that the AMAX featured as one of the “highest K/D guns in Warzone as of right now.” Upon trying it out in the video, the Warzone content creator was pleasantly surprised.

In the gameplay, Swagg manages to get a win in solo duos, racking up 32 kills and 9k damage. This has left FaZe Swagg believing that the AMAX definitely has a place among the best weapons in Warzone Season 6, saying that “in today’s meta it’s really really good.”

If you’re also looking to try out the AMAX, make sure you check out our best loadout for it.

So, with that being said, we could be seeing a revival for the AMAX in Warzone’s final season of the Black Ops Cold War integration. However, this may not last long as weapons like the STG44 and MP40 make their way into Warzone from Vanguard.

When is Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded? Terminator crossover, Vargo-S, new modes

Here’s everything we know about the upcoming Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update, including the expected release date and content.

Warzone Season 4 battle pass skin

Warzone Pacific Season 4 is here, bringing new weapons, Fortune’s Keep, and major Caldera updates. But there’s still more to come, so here’s everything confirmed for the Warzone Pacific Season 4 mid-season update, as well as its expected release date.

Every season, Call of Duty introduces another major update halfway through the season called ‘Reloaded.’ This usually brings a new weapon, new game modes, and major quality of life updates. Season 4 is no different, with the devs gearing up to add a new crossover, modes, and more in the mid-season update.

Here’s everything we know about the Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update, including when we expect it to arrive.

Expected Warzone Season 4 Reloaded release date

While Raven Software haven’t revealed when Warzone Season 4 Reloaded will arrive, we expect it to arrive in the week beginning July 25, as this is halfway through Season 4.

This is only the expected date, so we’ll be sure to confirm once Raven Software or Sledgehammer games confirm the official release date.

Terminator crossover in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

T-1000 Terminator in Warzone and Vanguard

After teasing a Terminator crossover in Warzone, the Season 4 Battle Pass announcement confirmed that the T-800 and T-1000 Terminators will arrive as Store Bundles in the mid-Season update.

The T-800 is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s classic Terminator played and the T-1000 is the shapeshifting android from T2 who most often appears as a cop played by Robert Patrick. Not much else is known about these bundles, with the devs confirming we’ll know more about them later in Season 4.

Vargo-S arrives in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

Vargo-S Assault Rifle in Warzone and Vanguard

Warzone’s Season 4 update added the Marco 5 SMG and UGM-8 LMG, but the Vargo-S Assault Rifle is set to arrive later in the season. Similar to the H4 Blixen and Armaguerra 43 arriving in mid-season updates, we expect the Vargo-S to arrive in the Season 4 Reloaded update.

The Vargo-S is set to be an early prototype of Cold War’s Vargo 52, and the devs have said it offers a “high-fire rate, steady aim through sustained fire, and a quick reload.”

New game modes in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

Armored SUV in Warzone Titanium Trials

Alongside the Terminator skins and a new Assault Rifle, Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded will also bring the Titanium Trials: Endurance and the Rebirth of the Dead mode.

Titanium Trials is set to be “an updated version of the highly-competitive Iron Trials,” and Rebirth of the Dead should bring Zombies to Rebirth Island. We should know much more about the new modes in the run-up to Season 4 Reloaded.

NICKMERCS loves the new Fortune’s Keep Warzone map and explains why

NICKMERCS has shared his opinion on the brand-new Warzone Season 4 map, Fortune’s Keep, stating that he loves it, as well as explaining why.

Published

While NICKMERCS has been off Warzone for some time now, the popular streamer returned to try out the new map Fortune’s Keep, which he said he loves.

Warzone Season 4 introduced a brand-new map to entice players to hop on and explore. While some players’ initial thoughts have been slightly negative, perhaps because they’re missing Rebirth Island, NICKMERCS has expressed a positive opinion regarding the map.

In a recent stream, NICKMERCS explained why he likes the new map, and what kind of player would like Fortune’s Keep.

NICKMERCS left Warzone for Apex Legends, becoming addicted to the ranked mode grind that Respawn’s battle royale has to offer.

Despite continuing to enjoy Apex over Warzone, NICKMERCS returned to Call of Duty’s battle royale for the Season 4 update, intrigued by the new map Fortune’s Keep.

NICKMERCS has been pretty open about his feelings towards Warzone and Caldera, sharing similar opinions to Dr Disrespect. Having said that, NICKMERCS seems to be enjoying Fortune’s Keep, as while playing it on June 22 he said “I really like the map, yeah a lot.”

NICKMERCS went on to say, “I love the map…what can’t you like? It’s kind of more dynamic than the old one…there’s a cave, there’s a lot more towns and stuff.”

The popular streamer is clearly enjoying the map design for Fortune’s Keep, especially the variation in the POIs and elevation throughout the map.

NICKMERCS even feels that the map is perfectly suited to those who like to play fast: “If you’re like a speed runner, like if you play super quick man, oh my god…parkour on this thing man.”


Perhaps this will draw NICKMERCS back in, or maybe the ranked mode on Apex Legends is still a priority for the streamer. Either way, like other CoD fans, NICKMERCS will likely be looking forward to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
