FaZe star Kris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson tested out Warzone’s brand-new Welgun SMG, calling it “top-tier” and building an “overpowered” loadout for it.

Warzone Pacific’s mid-Season 1 update brought a ton of buffs and nerfs to fan-favorite weapons, but it also brought the new Welgun SMG.

The Gunsmith system allows the Welgun to be built for a number of different playstyles, and top streamer FaZe Swagg has revealed how to make it “overpowered” with the right loadout attachments.

Best Warzone Welgun loadout

Warzone’s meta received a significant shake-up with Warzone Season 1’s midseason update, with the popular STG44 getting a healthy buff and the Bren getting taken down a peg.

But the one weapon standing out is the brand-new Welgun. In a YouTube video titled “The new Welgun SMG is overpowered in Warzone,” FaZe Swagg explains why.

Using the Welgun along with the STG, Swagg dropped 30 kills, helping his squad rack up over a hundred kills in Caldera. “This gun is top-tier, no question,” explained Swagg. “And overall, 100% you should unlock it.”

Swagg said the Welgun “melts with the right build,” so we’ve got his full class set up below.

Swagg’s YouTube video doesn’t reveal his full Welgun loadout, so here are the attachments he was running during his January 13 stream.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: 120mm Gawain Short
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 48 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Unmarked
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Swagg boosted the Welgun’s fire rate by combining the Recoil Booster and 120mm Gawain Short barrel, allowing it to kill enemies much faster. And he discovered that running iron sights gives you a reflex, so he opted for the Slate Reflector instead.

For magazine and ammo, Swagg ran the 7.62 Gorenko 48 Round Mags to hold extra bullets and the Hollow Point ammunition which increases the damage dealt to limbs, making it much more forgiving.

The rest of the attachments are to improve the Welgun’s mobility and accuracy, with the Unmarked Perk which helps to conceal your position on the mini map.

How much money does Warzone make?

Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the most popular battle royale games out there, so how much money does it bring in?

Warzone players looking at cash on the ground

Microsoft is set to acquire Call of Duty’s publisher Activision Blizzard for a whopping $70 billion, so how much money does Warzone bring in?

It’s no secret that Warzone is a money-making machine for publisher Activision Blizzard (soon to be Microsoft). Free-to-play battle royale games have remained as popular as ever, and Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the biggest there is.

With a new Battle Pass each season and an in-game store full of cosmetics such as Operator skins and weapon Blueprints, Warzone more than makes up for its free-to-play model.

Microsoft announced that they’re set to buy Activision Blizzard for almost $70 billion which begs the question, just how much money does Call of Duty: Warzone make?

How much money has Warzone made?

There’s no way of knowing how much money Warzone has made overall, but it’s reportedly somewhere in the region of $4 billion across 2020 and 2021.

SuperData, a now-shutdown game market intelligence company, reported that Warzone and Modern Warfare made around $1.93 billion in 2020, and NetBet estimates that Warzone makes around $1.9 billion a year. This puts Warzone’s total earnings across 2020 and 2021 at around $4 billion US Dollars.

Fortnite reportedly makes Epic Games a similar amount, bringing in around $1.8 billion a year, and $4.9 million a day.

NetBet breaks down Warzone’s earnings even further, reporting that Warzone makes Activision $5.2 million a day, which is over $3,600 a minute.

Social media can give the impression that Warzone is “dying” because of its numerous bugs and glitches, but the numbers tell a completely different story. Players are still purchasing a ton of CoD Points and cosmetic bundles, earning Activision around $60 a second.

This doesn’t even bring Vanguard, Cold War, and CoD: Mobile sales, which will likely bring the amount to be staggeringly higher.

Warzone hackers bring flying cars to Caldera

Warzone’s infamous flying car exploit is back with a vengeance as hackers revived the hated cheat and brought it to Caldera.

Warzone flying cars hack

After first appearing in Verdansk, hackers have brought flying cars to Warzone Pacific with an exploit that is being dubbed the “Harry Potter glitch.”

Although the RICOCHET anti-cheat has weeded out a significant number of hackers, running into players who abuse cheats in Warzone can still occur from time to time. The latest exploit that is running rampant across Warzone Pacific is one that gives vehicles the ability to fly.

Warzone players will be familiar with this particular exploit as it first appeared in Verdansk before players moved to Caldera. Now the flying cars are back to frustrate players who are simply trying to enjoy Warzone as intended.

Warzone Pacific vehicles

After clips of hackers with damage disabled warmed the hearts of Warzone players earlier in the week, it seems the balance has been restored as hackers have found a way to score a point for their team.

To make matters worse, the flying car cheat looks much easier to control this time around. In the previous installment control over the flying vehicle seemed to be an issue but in Caldera, this isn’t the case.

As seen in the video above, a squad of players can easily take down targets from the advantageous position granted by the flying car. When combined with cheats for aiming, the flying car becomes an unstoppable force that makes hackers impossible to kill.

This is the latest issue that is currently making the game unplayable for Warzone players. Luckily, Raven Software were quick to act to remove the previous iteration of flying cars from Warzone.

Although Raven has yet to respond to the new version of this classic exploit, hopefully, a quick fix is in the works so players won’t have to look to the sky in frustration much longer.

How to stop freezing at Warzone Buy Stations

Warzone players have been getting stuck at Buy Stations since the Pacific update but luckily, there’s an easy fix.

Warzone player stuck at Buy Station

Warzone players have been repeatedly dying to a Buy Station glitch where the game locks them in place almost every time they open one. Luckily, there’s a simple way to avoid it happening to you.

Although Warzone players have been enjoying Vanguard’s weapons on the brand new map, the constant stream of bugs and glitches has been hampering the experience for many.

One of the most frustrating issues is the Buy Station freeze glitch, where Warzone completely freezes when players attempt to open Buy Station. Usually, Warzone comes back to life after about ten seconds, but sometimes it causes the game to crash completely.

However, there’s a surprisingly simple way to avoid the dreaded Buy Station freeze glitch.

How to avoid Warzone Buy Station freeze on Xbox, PlayStation & PC

As discovered by Call of Duty content creator ProReborn, don’t slide into Buy Stations or Loadout Drops as doing so will “crash or freeze your game.”

One player confirmed it worked for them, saying they “figured this out today.” Although there’s no guarantee it will work every time, it’s well worth trying out until Raven Software release an official fix.

It’s a force of habit for Warzone players to slide into Loadout Drops and Buy Stations to open them, but you’ll need to unlearn the habit for the time being as sliding will only get you stuck in place, forcing you to await your doom.

The next major Warzone update will be Season 2, which players are hoping will fix a ton of issues plaguing the game such as invisible skins, players redeploying with their loadout, and Xbox performance issues.

The Buy Station freezing glitch is on their Trello board as “under investigation,” so hopefully they get to the bottom of the issue soon.
