With all the changes in Warzone Season 4, the meta has shifted yet again, and Kris ‘FaZe Swagg’ Lamberson believes this new MAC-10 loadout is now meta.

Warzone Season 4 brought a variety of changes to the game, including a shift in the weapon meta which saw Vanguard weapons become favored over others.

Having said that, the Vanguard SMGs have taken a slight decline after the June 25 hotfix which saw the speed attachments nerfed. With that being said this has opened up the close-range meta for the MAC-10, which FaZe Swagg believes is now meta.

The MAC-10 was one of the best SMGs in Warzone when it first arrived with Black Ops Cold War, but after being deemed overpowered, it was nerfed.

Now, in Warzone Season 4, the MAC-10 received a surprise buff in the patch notes, increasing its minimum damage, headshot damage multiplier, and maximum damage range.

FaZe Swagg feels these buffs and the Vanguard SMG nerfs have opened up the meta for the MAC-10 to shine. Here is the loadout recommended by the Warzone pro.

FaZe Swagg Warzone MAC-10 loadout

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap
  • Magazine: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

It’s important to note that FaZe Swagg was running this MAC-10 loadout on the new Fortune’s Keep map, which is designed for close-quarters fights. It is wise to run the MAC-10 with a long-range weapon like the UGM, just so you have all distances covered.

The Agency Suppressor and 5.9″ Task Force gives the MAC-10 some added range and bullet velocity, while the Raider Stock increases the sprint to fire time, aim walking movement speed, and ADS firing move speed.

In order to get your shots off first, the Serpent Wrap increases your aim down sight speed. Lastly, the STANAG 53 Rnd Drum means that you can take out multiple enemies at a time without the need to reload.


Make sure you give this loadout a try as FaZe Swagg believes it is now meta in Warzone Season 4. If you’re interested in TTK, check out our guide on the fastest killing weapons in Warzone.

JGOD believes there’s no reason to use KBM instead of controller in Warzone

Warzone YouTuber JGOD has explained why there’s no reason to use mouse and keyboard instead of a controller.

With Call of Duty: Warzone using crossplay, the community is split between controller and mouse and keyboard. While a mouse typically offers more precision, YouTuber JGOD explained why he thinks controller is the better option.

Like almost any triple-A shooter on the market, Warzone pits both controller and mouse and keyboard players against each other. There’s long been a debate about which input is better, with each having its unique pros and cons.

Mouse and keyboard offers much more precision and fine-aim control, but a controller’s aim assist does a ton of the work for you, allowing you to snap on and track players with ease — especially at close-range.

In an August 10 stream, YouTuber JGOD explained why he feels controller players will always have the edge, and why there’s no reason to use a keyboard and mouse.

“I think it’s easy for any controller player to kill any keyboard and mouse player,” explained JGOD. “It’s literally what aim assist is for.”

“I don’t understand why people play on keyboard and mouse on CoD, it’s just asking for frustrations with the game,” he continued. “I would say even if you’re really good on keyboard and mouse, you probably feel really good, but you watch your killcam and you always feel cheated.”

JGOD is so confident in controller and aim assist’s power that he believes that if he put 100 controller and 100 keyboard and mouse players against each other at random, “the controller players would dominate the keyboard and mouse players on average.”

He did say that this probably wouldn’t be the case in Apex Legends, but in Warzone, “the controller players would dominate them.”

Whether aim assist will be tweaked in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 remains to be seen, but JGOD believes that nerfing aim assist wouldn’t work because the high-skilled players would continue to dominate and lower-skilled players would struggle even more.

Warzone players slam “awful” Terminator camo challenges

Warzone Pacific players are extremely frustrated with the challenges to unlock Terminator camos in Season 4 Reloaded.

Terminator in Warzone

Raven Software added new Terminator cosmetics at the start of Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded, and players have expressed their frustration with the crossover’s challenges.

Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded features a plethora of fun content for players to enjoy, including the Terminator crossover which brought new Operator skins and challenges to the game.

Successfully completing these in-game challenges will grant you access to numerous Terminator-themed rewards, but they are being heavily criticized by the Warzone community.

Reddit user ‘AceOfSpades90000000’ slammed these challenges in the Warzone Pacific subreddit, describing them as “awful” because of the abundance of lag and enemies using aimbots.

The Redditor claimed that these problems make it “practically impossible” to win 4 games and then expressed their admiration for those players that were able to successfully complete the Terminator challenges.

Many of the commenters agreed that the challenges are too difficult and frustrating to complete. However, not everyone agreed about aimbots being an issue, as users offered their own criticisms of the challenges.

A few players felt that the rewards being offered aren’t worth the effort required to unlock them. One user wrote: “The rewards are terrible. Am I seeing things or is the same calling card there 4 times with slightly different colors?”

The rewards also include new weapon camos that are inspired by the looks of different Terminators such as the T-800 and liquid metal T-1000 from the movies, but unlocking them is proving to be challenging.

One of the commenters claimed to have played all day without much success: “All I need is 2 wins for liquid metal but it’s impossible because everywhere I go, I get rolled and I’m not even bad at the game.”

Despite these criticisms, a few users in the thread defended the Terminator crossover and provided their fellow players with advice on how to get these challenges done quickly.

One player suggested trying the first challenges since they’re easy to complete in just a few games. You’ll have a better chance of winning 4 games if you hop into the challenges with a squad that’s comprised of your friends.

While some players have expressed their disappointment with Warzone’s Terminator crossover for being a huge missed opportunity, there are those that are able to have a good time and get these challenges done.

Warzone expert claims forgotten Vanguard sniper is “broken” with insane one-shot power

One broken Sniper Rifle is now able to one-shot players to the chest after its nerfs were reverted in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

Warzone Operator using Sniper Rifle

Warzone expert Isaac ‘IceManIsaac’ Hamilton has revealed which Sniper Rifle is now capable of one-shotting enemies to the chest after the developers reverted its nerfs.

When you hop into a game of Warzone Pacific, you’ll face tough competition from opposing players and will need to select the best weapon loadouts for different combat situations in order to come out on top.

If you prefer to pick off your enemies from a distance then Sniper Rifles are the best choice, and Call of Duty expert IceManIsaac has showcased an extremely broken one that can instantly take out enemies in Season 4 Reloaded.

The Type 99 Sniper Rifle previously received a massive nerf in Warzone Pacific Season 3 and this was meant to prevent players from securing one-shot kills outside of the weapon’s max damage range.

However, this nerf was reverted in the July 28 update which increased the maximum damage range to 50 meters, up from 37 Meters. As a result, the weapon is able to eliminate enemies extremely quickly.

IceManIsaac described the weapon as “jarring and super satisfying to use.” You can use it to take out your opponents instantly with a single shot to the chest. The Warzone expert then revealed his loadout for the powerful Sniper Rifle.

IceManIsaac’s Type 99 Loadout

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Shiraishi 712mm Sniper
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x / ZF4 3.5x Rifle Scope
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 5 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Perk 1: Vital
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

IceManIsaac uses many of the same attachments as the best Type 99 Warzone loadout, but he went with the Taped Grip for the faster weapon swap speed that it provides. Even if you hit a shoulder shot, you can switch to an SMG quickly to finish off your opponent.

The SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x optic is an ideal choice for Caldera but its biggest drawback is the glint that enemies can spot, giving away your position and putting you at a disadvantage. If you want to avoid the glint, you can try out the ZF4 3.5x Rifle Scope instead

The Vital perk is a key part of this loadout as it increases the size of the critical-hit area on enemies. Finally, the Removed Stock and the SMLE Pistol Grip let you aim down sights faster.
