The Godzilla vs Kong Operation Monarch LTM in Warzone Pacific Season 3 offers gameplay opportunities that are brand-new to the battle royale. For those curious as to how this game mode works, let us explain.

Warzone players have been excited about the arrival of Godzilla and Kong for some time now, and although players were unsure of how these Titans would impact the battle royale, we now have a much better idea.

As well as Operator bundles for Kong and Gozilla, these monsters will also be featured on Caldera in a brand-new limited-time mode called Operation Monarch.

The way in which this mode works is fairly simple, as players have the opportunity to harness the power of these Titans in-game.

Warzone Operation Monarch explained

Starting May 11 and ending on May 25, players can select the Operation Monarch mode, which sees squads of 4 dropping into Caldera with a twist.

Operation Monarch has the Resurgence ruleset, meaning players will be able to drop back in so long as at least one of their teammates is alive and the respawn timer is still ongoing. Upon landing into Caldera, players will notice a “safe area” marked on their map.

The twist is that there are two massive Titans on the map, Kong and Gozilla, whose appearance offers unique gameplay opportunities.

Monarch Intel

Players will need to find and collect Monarch Intel, which can be found in “Supply Boxes, special drops, and fallen enemies.” Monarch Intel will charge a special meter that will unlock various items for players such as “Killstreaks and Loadout Drops.”

The most interesting aspect of this game mode is that once you fill your meter up to the top with Monarch Intel, players will earn the S.C.R.E.A.M. Device, which is a Killstreak that allows players to use either Godzilla or Kong’s power against enemy teams.

Players will need to select either Kong’s Ground Pound or Godzilla’s Heat Ray Breath when activating this Killstreak. Then, players will need to choose where they would like to direct this attack on Caldera. Only one Titan Killstreak can go off at one time, so don’t worry about getting completely bombarded.

Titan Frenzy

At the start of every match, and once during it, Kong and Godzilla will become enraged and attack recklessly, so beware.

This is known as the Titan Frenzy phase, which gives the player two choices: “tactically withdraw (run away) from these dangerous creatures or attempt to suppress them by dealing direct damage.”

You may be wondering why you would want to attack these Titans while they’re enraged, well the squad that deals the most damage during Titan Frenzy automatically receives a S.C.R.E.A.M. Device.

You will also receive Monarch Intel for simply doing damage to the Titans, so perhaps it is worth trying your best to get some shots off. Ultimately, the last standing squad that was able to avoid the power of the Titans and harness it will win the match.

Warzone players call for major LMG buffs as Assault Rifles dominate meta

Warzone players are sick of Assault Rifles dominating the meta so are calling for LMGs to receive major buffs.

Although supposed to be long-range powerhouses, with a few exceptions, LMGs have never broken into Warzone’s meta for long. Claiming that LMGs have no identity, players are calling for major buffs.

Although weapons come and go from Warzone’s meta, how the guns behave has almost always stayed the same. Players always stick with a long-range weapon with low recoil and a large mag size, and a lightweight SMG with a fast TTK.

The long-range weapon has almost always been an Assault Rifle or an LMG that’s been built to act like an Assault Rifle, and players are growing tired of it. With a couple more Warzone Pacific seasons left and Warzone 2 on the horizon, players are calling for major LMG buffs so they’ll have their own identity.

Although a couple of LMGs such as the Bruen Mk9, MG82, and Bren have made their way into Warzone’s meta, the class as a whole has never come close to the popularity or efficiency of Assault Rifles.

Reddit user IonlyPlayAOE3 explained why LMGS have a “sh*t identity” in Warzone, laying much of the blame on Vanguard weapons’ ten attachments. They explained that an Assault Rifle can do everything that an LMG can, especially by holding at least 60 rounds.

They hope that LMGs will have much more of an identity in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, where Assault Rifles should “struggle against LMGs in long-range to ultra long range engagements.”

Many players agreed, wanting an Assault Rifle to become a middle ground between LMGs and SMGs. “They should lose to LMGs at range, and lose to SMGs up close, but be a decent middle ground,” explained Shielo34.

However, some worried that buffing LMGs would just make them replace Assault Rifles in the meta. Instead of giving LMGs straight buffs, some suggested lowering Assault Rifles’ magazine size.

Warzone players were starting to catch on to Season 4’s UGM-8 LMG and its burst-fire barrel, but the devs were quick to nip that in the bud with the June 30 update. With the NZ-41 now nerfed as well, we’ll need to wait and see how the post-nerf UGM fits into the Season 4 meta.

Warzone’s best attachments received major nerfs in June 30 update

Warzone’s most popular weapon attachments received notable nerfs in the Season 4 June 30 update patch, and could shake up the meta.

Published

Warzone Pacific Season 4 received a plethora of balancing adjustments in the June 30 patch, with some of the best attachments in the game getting significant nerfs.

The June 30 Warzone Pacific patch brought a ton of weapon balancing changes in Season 4, including a nerf to the popular NZ-41, which the developers felt had become too overpowered over the last season.

Other weapons like the H4 BlixenMarco 5, and UGM-8 were also changed in the update. Warzone players will be encouraged to alter their usual loadouts as the best attachments have also been nerfed.

Warzone Pacific Season 4’s June 30 update patch included nerfs to the Lengthened ammo type, MX Silencer muzzle, and M1941 Handstop underbarrel. These attachments are popular choices on Assault Rifle loadouts.

The MX Silencer and Lengthened ammo type boost your weapon’s accuracy and bullet velocity respectively. The June 30 update gave both of these attachments received a 3% reduction in muzzle velocity.

Meanwhile, the M1941 Handstop underbarrel’s recoil control has been changed to 3.5% down from 4%. While this seems like a minor change, it can actually greatly affect your loadout’s effectiveness in combat.

Since the MX Silencer, M1941 Handstop, and Lengthened are all popular choices for multiple weapons, it’s extremely likely that these attachment nerfs are going to greatly impact Warzone players’ loadout builds.

While the update brought various nerfs to different weapons and attachments, it also featured buffs to Vanguard’s Warzone weapons, as the 3-LineKar98k, and Type 99 all received an increase in bullet velocity.

Warzone expert reveals genius trick to instantly get Loadout Drop

Getting a Loadout Drop early is key to surviving Warzone’s early game but there’s a way to get your loadout in a matter of seconds.

Getting your loadout as soon as possible is vital to winning in Call of Duty: Warzone and pro player IceManIsaac has revealed a genius trick to getting your loadout in seconds.

Loadouts are what sets Warzone apart from all of the other battle royale games. Getting your own custom weapon gives a massive advantage over those with ground loot, so getting a Loadout Drop as soon as possible is key to winning.

It can be tough to get your Loadout Drop in the chaos of the early game, but a clever strategy from streamer IceManIsaac can get your team a Loadout Drop and free UAV in seconds.

To instantly get a Loadout Drop in Warzone, all players need to do is land on a Top Secret Contract in Fortune’s Keep. This will starts a random Contract such as Supply Run, Scavenger, or a Bounty, and you’ll get a whopping $8,000 as well as a UAV.

IceManIsaac explained that the Supply Run won’t task you with traveling across the map like in Caldera, it’ll actually be pretty near, so you’ll be able to land on it in a matter of seconds. A loadout only costs $7500 dollars so you can buy the loadout straight away and have a free UAV to see any approaching enemies.

While doable in Solos, this strategy works best in squads. If one player picks up the Contract and the rest float in the air to complete the task, the process will be even quicker. Even if it’s a Bounty, all of the players can land on top of the target and it won’t matter if they die in the process because of the Resurgence mechanic.

Fortune’s Keep is pure chaos in the early game, so securing yourself a loadout before anyone else will be sure to set you up for success.
