Warzone Season 4 has added the Armored Truck to the regular battle royale. Fitted with a turret, it can be upgraded with extra armor, a permanent UAV, and even repaired. Here’s how to find and upgrade this incredibly powerful vehicle.
Warzone fans will remember the Armored Royale LTM in which players battled it out with insanely powerful Amored Trucks fitted with machine guns. Following the Season 4 update, which has brought significant weapon balance changes and the new Dirt Bikes, these Armored Trucks have made their way to regular battle royale.
The standard “Big Bertha” Cargo Trucks still remain and Armored Trucks are something separate entirely. Here’s how to find and upgrade these game-changing vehicles.
How to find satellites in Warzone
While “Big Bertha” trucks spawn at the beginning of the round, you need to find a mini-satellite to get your hands on the powerful Armored Truck.

Although large satellites have crash-landed in certain areas of Verdansk ’84 for the Ground Fall event, mini-satellites crash-land around the map over the course of a game. You’ll hear them first, so look up into the sky and you’ll see them drop in. These appear to drop completely at random, so keep your eyes on the sky for when they drop in.
Once you find one, you’ll have to capture it like a Recon Contract, which initiates the stage of getting an Armored Truck.
How to get an Armored Truck in Warzone
Once you’ve captured the satellite, a Satellite Cache will drop in some distance away. It’ll be marked on your screen so you can head towards it. After you open it, you’ll get either a HARP or an Armored Truck.

How to upgrade Warzone’s Armored Truck

Simply head to the back of the truck and you’ll see a Buy Station screen attached to the trailer where you can purchase tools for the truck. These upgrades are costly, but while you’re in this tank, you won’t have much trouble sending enemies to the Gulag and taking their cash for yourself.
Here are the upgrades you can buy for Warzone’s Armored Truck:
- Armored Truck
- Refill Trophy ($2500)
- Repair Armored Truck ($1500)
- Armored Truck Upgrade
- UAV ($4000)
- Trophy System ($3000)
- Heat Resistant Barrel ($3000)
- Heavy Armor ($2000)
- Armor Box ($6000)
- Munitions Box ($4500)
Raven Software haven’t commented on the Armored Truck’s inclusion yet, but we expect it to remain for the duration of the Ground Fall event.

JGOD reveals his top tip to boost your Warzone K/D & win more gunfights
JGOD has broken down his top tip to help you win more gunfights and boost your Warzone kill to death ratio.
Warzone YouTuber JGOD has broken down the simple trick you can use to win more gunfights and “instantly raise your K/D.”
‘Centering’ is a term you may have heard your favorite Call of Duty and Warzone pros use, as it’s one of the most important aspects of any FPS game. Make sure your aim is ‘centered’ and already where you expect enemies to be will allow you to snap onto them much quicker, giving you the edge in gunfights.
Using examples from Warzone’s top professional players, YouTuber JGOD has broken down how important centering is to improve your K/D ratio and winning more gunfights.
What is centering in Warzone?
As JGOD explains, centering is keeping your crosshair in the center of your screen so you’re always ready for a player to appear. This means aiming at chest height at all times where you expect enemies to be, whether that’s in doorways, windows, or out in the open. JGOD explained that sometimes that tiny adjustment you have to make if you’re not centered “is enough to lose you the gunfight.”
Using his own example, when JGOD is aiming at the floor, he has to massively adjust to aim at an enemy, and messes up his shots. He then corrects himself, centers his aim, and easily wins the fight.
He explains that controllers players tend to be the most guilty of aiming at the floor, as his own centering is much better when playing on keyboard and mouse. It could be a battle royale problem, as you’re constantly looking at the ground for loot.
JGOD Warzone centering examples
JGOD then uses top Warzone pro Tommey as an example, explaining how good centering can even correct mistakes. In the middle of a fight, Tommey expected a player to swing through a doorway and was centered ready for the player. Instead, the player dropped down one of the fireman’s poles, and because Tommey was centered, he easily adjusted his aim slightly to the right to win the gunfight.
As another perfect example of centering, JGOD analyzes DougIsRaw’s gameplay. Before Doug dropped down a ladder into the stairs of one of the apartment buildings, he took a second to center his aim to chest height. This allowed him to drop down already with perfect aim, and easily got the kill.
While centering is just instinct for Warzone’s top players, JGOD said that you’ll have to “consciously work on it day after day.” Just keep centering in mind while playing, and you’ll find your gameplay will improve immensely.

FaZe Swagg shows off powerful one-burst CX-9 loadout
FaZe Swagg has added a new attachment to his CX-9 SMG that is helping him to dominate Warzone, here’s the full loadout.
FaZe’s Kris “Swagg” Lamberson has changed up his CX-9 loadout in Warzone Season 4, and the new 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags attachment is “cooking” enemies in Call of Duty.
The new CX-9 SMG has become quite a popular weapon since it arrived in Warzone. Aside from it being new and exciting, it’s also quite a solid SMG to use in Season 4 – joining the other best SMGs to use in Warzone.
So to try and make it even more devastating than it already is, FaZe’s Swagg has come up with another spin on the CX-9. He’s added the 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags to his SMG, and the results have been incredible for him.
Swagg kicks off his newest video by saying: “A lot of you guys don’t know but the CX-9 actually comes with Hollow Point 12 Round Mags, it turns the gun into three-round bursts and it ups the damage a lot.
“The damage, the speed, and all that stuff too, it makes this gun hard-hitting. I was playing some duos today, and I was cooking every single person I saw, it was ridiculous.”
He then goes into the gameplay and drops a healthy 22-kill game, with many of them coming at the hands of the CX-9 and its Hollow Point rounds.
FaZe Swagg’s CX-9 Hollow Points Mag loadout & attachments
- Barrel: CX-38S
- Optic: G.I Mini Reflex
- Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
- Ammunition: 9mm Hollow Point 12-R
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
One of the biggest selling points of the CX-9 is that already comes with a suppressor – if you equip the CX-38S barrel. This is a bonus as it frees up a slot that players otherwise normally use up to silence the weapon.
This allows Swagg to be able to use the Hollow Point rounds, and also Sleight of Hand as a Perk. It’s quite a clever addition as even though the bullets are way more powerful than standard ammo, there’s a very limited amount of them.
Sleight of Hand speeds this process up immensely and allows you to keep churning out Hollow Points at a good rate.

How to make Custom Blueprints with Cold War & Warzone’s Gunsmith Customs
With Gunsmith Customs, Cold War and Warzone lets you mix and match Blueprint attachments, so here’s how to make your own custom Blueprint.
The Gunsmith Customs system is available in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, so here’s how to create your own custom Blueprints with this fan-favorite feature.
Gunsmith Customs and custom Blueprints were added to Modern Warfare and Warzone in April 2020, much to fans’ appreciation. You can also do it in Cold War, and with Cold War’s weapons in Warzone. With this feature, you can mix and match all of the Blueprint attachments for a weapon type, creating a brand new weapon Blueprint that’s unique to you.
For example, if you want to build a custom Krig 6, you can combine the barrel from the Confrontation Blueprint with the magazine from the Samurai’s Creed and the stock from the Go Getter. You can then save it as a custom Blueprint, name it, and then you can find it amongst all of your other purchased Blueprints.
How to use Custom Blueprint Mods in Black Ops Cold War
Arriving in Cold War’s mid-Season 2 update, players can now create and save several of their own custom Blueprints. This not only allows you to quickly access your crazy Blueprint combinations but also makes it easier to access your favorite loadouts without having to build them every time.
Making and saving these custom Blueprints is quite simple, so here’s how to do it:
- Launch Black Ops Cold War
- Select the ‘Weapons’ tab
- Choose your weapon
- Hover over the attachment you wish to equip
- Select the Gunsmith icon beside the attachment
- Choose the attachment style from your owned Blueprints
- Save and rename your custom Blueprint
Now, when creating a weapon class, you’ll be able to equip your custom Blueprint like you would any other. When you go to select your weapon, the custom Blueprint will be there alongside all of the other Blueprints you own.
If you wish to keep the weapon’s tracer fire or Mastercraft effects, you’ll need to equip that Blueprint as the base before customizing. By doing this, you can keep the blue tracer fire, but use the attachment styles from a completely different weapon, making a gun that’s entirely personalized to your style.
How to use Custom Blueprint Mods in Cold War Zombies
This also works in Black Ops Cold War Zombies. By building and saving a custom Blueprint, you can access it in rounds of Outbreak or regular Zombies such as Season 4’s Mauer Der Toten, so you can always have the attachments and look you desire.
For example, you spawn in with the M1911 for that classic Zombies experience. Then after you purchase a Gallo SA12 from the wall, you can apply either a regular Blueprint or Custom Mod to the weapon that applies all of your pre-selected attachments.
Here’s how to do it:
- Load into a game of Cold War Zombies
- Either purchase your favorite weapon from the wall or get it from a Mystery Box
- Pause the game
- Select ‘Apply Blueprint’
- Navigate over to ‘Custom Mods’
- Choose the Custom Blueprint you wish to apply
This will give you not only the attachments of your choice but also the Mastery Camos you’ve grinded for.
How to use Custom Blueprint Mods in Warzone
Battle royale fans were disappointed that you couldn’t create Custom Blueprints for Cold War weapons in Warzone when the game first integrated. Raven Software has now added that function, so you can now have several Custom Blueprints at the ready when building your favorite loadouts.
Here’s how to build and use Custom Blueprint Mods in Warzone:
- Launch Call of Duty: Warzone
- Go to the ‘Weapons’ tab and press ‘Edit Loadout’
- Build your ideal weapon loadout
- Click ‘Save a Custom Mod’ at the bottom of the screen
- Rename and save your Custom Blueprint!
And to then access that Custom Blueprint:
- Click ‘Edit Loadout’
- Hover over the weapon you wish to use
- Select ‘Armory’ beside the weapon
- Choose either a regular Blueprint or your own Custom Blueprint
With Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5 arriving soon, there will be a ton more weapon Blueprints arriving in both the store and the new Battle Pass. So, you’ll get more and more weapon customization options as the seasons progress.
