FaZe Swagg claims Warzone Nail Gun is one of the “best close range guns” in Season 2 Reloaded

Professional Warzone player FaZe Swagg has revealed how great the Nail Gun is in the Season 2 Reloaded update.

FaZe Swagg has shown off his Warzone Season 2 Reloaded Nail Gun class setup that he claims absolutely “shreds” and doesn’t lose from up close.

Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded has definitely refreshed the meta for the battle royale, especially as so many players are enjoying the close-range combat of the Rebirth Island map, which opens up the meta for more SMGs.

In addition to revealing a loadout to make the classic Tar-21 from Modern Warfare 2, FaZe Swagg is now claiming that the Nail Gun is also a serious contender for the current SMG close-range meta in Season 2 Reloaded.

Of course, the Nail Gun is a bit of an odd weapon compared to other guns in Warzone, as players are unable to put attachments on it. Having said that, FaZe Swagg claims it still has “one of the fastest TTKs” in Warzone, despite only having 20 shots in a mag.

FaZe Swagg uses the Nail Gun on both Rebirth Island and Caldera in the video, showing how the Nail Gun can be effective on both maps if you play for close-range engagements.

Keep in mind that this is easier to do on Rebirth Island, but can be done on Caldera if you run a Sniper along with it for longer engagements.

As the Nail Gun doesn’t have attachment options, players will only need to worry about the rest of their class setup when it comes to FaZe Swagg’s Nail Gun loadout.

  • Primary: Nail Gun
  • Secondary: Kar98k

The Kar98k is arguably the best sniper in Warzone, mostly because of its fast mobility and versatility when it comes to range. Players can use this sniper to either take a quick shot at someone close by or even attempt to down enemies at long-range with a headshot.

This bridges the gap that the Nail Gun’s range doesn’t cover, allowing you to focus on close-range engagements with your primary weapon.

As for the equipment that Swagg has opted for with the Nail Gun loadout, we have the Stims which are great for added mobility and health regen, so you can get in the enemy’s face, which is exactly where you want to be with the Nail Gun.

  • Tactical: Stims
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife


  • Perk 1: Quick Fix
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped

FaZe Swagg has opted for Quick Fix in the first Perk slot due to the recent buff to the Perk that causes health to regen after plating up. This allows you to get back to full health much quicker, which is vital when you’re running around with the Nail Gun.

Next, we have Overkill for Perk 2, this allows Swagg to run the Kar98k, which is essential to the loadout as it covers the mid to long ranges that the Nail Gun can’t cover.

Lastly, we have Amped, which will allow you to swap your weapons faster so you can get your Nail Gun out as fast as possible after hitting a snipe.

That’s all for FaZe Swagg’s Nail Gun class setup in Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded, for more check out every weapon blueprint spawn on Rebirth Island.

Genius Warzone trick completely counters getting stuck by Thermites

Getting stuck with a Thermite in Warzone usually means certain death, but a genius trick is allowing players to survive a fiery demise.



Warzone Caldera thermite trick Season 3 Reloaded

Getting stuck with a Thermite has traditionally meant a swift death, but if you react quickly, this genius Warzone trick will allow you to survive the tricky situation.

While most Warzone players will be trying to figure out how the meta has changed following the Season 3 Reloaded update, one player has made a discovery that could be useful to players with quick reflexes.

Warzone’s Lethal Equipment options can prove difficult to handle in enemy hands. Perhaps none are as frightening as the Thermite, a piece of Lethal Equipment that can down you in seconds. However, a genius Warzone trick has revealed the ultimate counter for enemy Thermites.

Trophy System in Warzone Pacific

Thermite is designed to stick to any surface on impact and burn whatever it touches for a short period of time. When stuck to a Warzone Operator, Thermite usually burns through armor and knocks the player down, setting up an easy kill.

Up until Season 3 Reloaded, getting stuck with a Thermite meant certain death, but a clip posted to the Warzone subreddit demonstrates a genius trick for escaping death by Thermite.

The clip shows how a player stuck with a Thermite is saved from its clutches by throwing a Trophy System. The key factor here is that the Trophy System was thrown after the player got stuck with the Thermite, which proves that Trophy Systems can destroy Thermites after they stick to players.

As the player who posted the clip explains, “You can clearly see the hitmarker the trophy gives off when it detonates a lethal, point here being I didn’t know it can save a guy from certain death like this dude here.”

Several players in the comments claimed that they had no idea this was possible and that they’d look to add the trick to their repertoire, “gonna have to remember now to throw a trophy if I have it on me and get stuck lol.”

It seems keeping a Trophy System by your side could get you out of a tricky situation if used correctly.

Incredible Warzone 2 art uses leaks to reveal what new map could look like

With the help of leaks, one Call of Duty fan has developed an image of what believe the Warzone 2 map could look like.

After various leaks and even the reveal of Modern Warfare 2, one creative fan in the community has developed fan art of what the Warzone 2 map could look like.

Call of Duty fans have received a lot of new information on both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 over the last month. As well as leaks surrounding Modern Warfare 2, we also got new details on the Warzone 2 map, including leaks surrounding the potential POIs.

One CoD fan took these leaks and created some incredible art for what the Warzone 2 map could look like if the leaks are accurate.

Reddit user EMADALDEN221 made their own Warzone 2 map based on the POI leaks that suggested some classic MW2 maps such as Quarry and Highrise could be included.

The recreated map images we’ve seen so far haven’t been as detailed as this one, and although this is just a creation by someone in the community, it’s based on leaks from reliable sources.

The design created by the Reddit user shares similarities to Verdansk, and those who aren’t fans of Caldera may be happy about this. For starters, the map is not an island, but rather a part of a much bigger bit of land.

The fan-made map definitely has more of a Blackout vibe, with bright colors and a focus on greenery, which wasn’t seen too much on Verdansk.

We’ll have to wait and see how accurate this depiction is when Warzone 2’s map is officially revealed.

JGOD explains why his H4 Blixen loadout is meta in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

Top Warzone YouTuber JGOD explained how the new H4 Blixen fits right in the SMG meta and gave his recommended loadout.



JGOD and H4 Blixen SMG in Warzone

The H4 Blixen SMG is brand-new to Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded, and it’s already set to shake up the meta. Top Warzone YouTuber JGOD has explained why his loadout is a meta pick.

On top of all Warzone Season 3 Reloaded‘s major weapon balance changes, new squad HUD, and Underground Transit System, it introduced the H4 Blixen SMG, also referred to as the Carl Gustaf M/45.

Although the H4 Blixen currently has a frustrating glitch where it has a fire delay after sprinting, reloading, using equipment, and plating, the devs have confirmed a fix is in the works. YouTuber JGOD believes that after it’s fixed, the Blixen has the time to kill stats to join the SMG meta.

JGOD revealed how the Blixen has the TTK stats to compete with all of the meta SMGs such as the Armaguerra, Owen Gun, Welgun, and the Type 100. Describing it as a “high damage weapon,” he compared its TTK to these meta builds and discovered that it fits right in.

JGOD explained how it’s right in the middle of the SMG meta, where there are some weapons that kill faster but are harder to control, and others that are easier to control but don’t kill quite as fast.

If you’re bored of the other Vanguard SMGs or can’t quite find one that suits your playstyle, unlocking the H4 Blixen will be worth your time.

JGOD meta H4 Blixen loadout

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Jonsson 9″ RMK
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Fleet
  • Perk 2: Quick

For the most part, JGOD’s H4 Blixen loadout is the standard build for Vanguard SMGs. Combining the Recoil Booster with the Jonsson 9″ RMK damage barrel vastly increases its time-to-kill, and the other attachments are for recoil control and mobility.

You do have a couple of options, though. He explained that you might be better off with the 7.62 Gorenko 36 Round Mags when playing Solos and Duos, as you’ll only be taking on one or two players at a time.

Ammunition choice is also flexible, where Lengthened, Hollow Point, or Subsonic are all viable options. These ammo types will make the Blixen’s range either a little bit better or a little bit worse, and Subsonic will hide your shots from the minimap.
