For those Warzone players who like to acquire detailed, fun weapon blueprints, the latest Phoenix Inferno skin for the QBZ-83 is one of the more unique blueprints to be added to the battle royale. Here’s how to get it.

Warzone Season 4 is full of new updates and cosmetics for players to get their hands on, with new skins dropping every so often.

The Phoenix Inferno blueprint was released as part of the Bundle Tracer Pack: Firestorm Maxis Mastercraft, which contains not only the Phoenix Inferno but also a new Maxis skin, Handgun skin, and various other cosmetics.

The bundle containing the Warzone Phoenix Inferno blueprint costs 2400 CoD points which is a pretty hefty amount, but worth it if you’re looking to spend some leftover money or CoD points, you have lying around.

It remains to be seen how long this bundle will be in the in-game store for Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, so players who would like to add the Warzone Phoenix Inferno blueprint to their collection will likely want to soon before it is taken out in the future.

The Warzone Phoenix Inferno features a Phoenix-themed skin with wings and an orange-looking gem on the round drum magazine also above the trigger.

Players can initiate a very entertaining animation where your character inserts a key into the Warzone Phoenix Inferno weapon and causes a burst of fire to come out of the side in an adrenaline-fueled display.

Mastercraft blueprints have been a very popular cosmetic item for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone players, even though the community has recently been calling for the developers to make a major change to them, so there are sure to be plenty of players rocking this new Warzone Phoenix Inferno blueprint for the QBZ-83 Assault Rifle.

Warzone & Cold War The Numbers event: Challenges & rewards

Warzone and Cold War’s plot will thicken with Season 5 Reloaded’s The Numbers event, so here’s how to earn the exclusive rewards.

The Numbers event in Cold War and Warzone

Following Warzone and Cold War Season 5 Reloaded, ‘The Numbers’ event will arrive, which is expected to continue the mystery of the Red Doors and Numbers Program. Here’s everything we know about the event, including its start date, challenges, and rewards.

Mysterious Red Doors appeared in Verdansk at the launch of Season 4, teleporting players to rooms filled with high-tier loot and Killstreaks. These doors started behaving more erratically in Season 5, bringing players to a mysterious corridor, dropping them from the sky, and even disappearing.

We may be about to get some answers about the Red Doors, with a midseason event, ‘The Numbers,’ arriving soon after Warzone and Cold War Season 5 Reloaded.

Here’s when the event will begin, its challenges, and the exclusive rewards you can earn.

What is Warzone Season 5’s The Numbers event?

Warzone Season 5 brought Mobile Broadcast Stations to Verdansk. These were relatively inactive at the start of the season but “seem to be stirring.” They’ll soon begin “amplifying the ‘Dragovich Program’ tapes – A.K.A. the Numbers broadcasts – across the region.”

For this event, players will need to investigate these Broadcast Stations and will earn a pile of rewards for doing so.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded Roadmap

As part of the Season 5 Reloaded announcement, Call of Duty devs revealed that the event kicked off on September 21 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST and will end on October 5 at 9 PM PST/ 11 PM CST/ 12 PM EST / 5 AM BST (October 6) in Black Ops Cold War.

The Numbers event will conclude in Warzone on October 6 at 9 PM PST/ 11 PM CST/ 12 PM EST / 5 AM BST (October 7)

This event arrived a little under two weeks after the Season 5 Reloaded updates that brought a new Warzone game mode and a ton of Zombies content to Cold War.

Warzone and Cold War The Numbers event challenges

The Warzone Cursed Angel blueprint makes the Black Ops Cold War AK-47 into a very unique weapon, and here is how you can obtain it.

Warzone cursed angel ak-47 blueprint Warzone

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded has brought some new blueprints to the game, but some players are curious about the Cursed Angel AK-47 blueprint.

The Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update has been a huge success so far, especially due to the popularity of the new Iron Trials mode, which a lot of players are saying should be a permanent mode.

The recent Blueprint Blitz Event allowed players to gain some blueprints from previous seasons, with one past blueprint, in particular, gaining a lot of attention, the Cursed Angel blueprint for the Black Ops Cold War AK-47.

How to get the Warzone Cursed Angel blueprint

The Warzone Cursed Angel AK-47 is part of the Angels & Demons Reactive Anime Bundle, available in Warzone and Black Ops cold War Season 3. Unfortunately, it was not part of the recent Blueprint Blitz Event, so there is no current way to obtain it.

The bundle cost 1,800 CoD Points and featured six items:

  • Cursed Angel – AK-47 blueprint
  • Divine Blossom – M82 blueprint
  • Good and Evil – Charm
  • Angel’s Grace – Calling Card
  • Demon’s Lust – Calling Card
  • Sword Singer – Emblem

The item rarity ranges from Ultra to Legendary, with the Cursed Angel being the Ultra weapon blueprint of the bundle.

The Warzone Cursed Angel blueprint features a reactive skin with anime-inspired art that changes colors as you get kills in a match. The blueprint has four stages:

  1. Base stage – 3 kills
  2. Second stage – 6 kills
  3. Third stage – 9 kills
  4. Fourth stage – 12 kills

You can check out how the Warzone Cursed Angel blueprint changes colors in the video below:

For those who love anime and also like to collect great blueprints and skins, the Warzone Cursed Angel was one to pick up, as it makes the weapon pop, especially when you get it to the final form.

Unfortunately, until the Warzone Cursed Angel blueprint is released in a future Blueprint Blitz Event or is rotated back into the game store, players will not be able to obtain it for the time being.

Best Assault Rifle loadouts for Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded

Assault Rifles are great all-rounders in CoD: Warzone Season 5, so here’s every AR ranked and listed, and the best loadouts to run with them.

Published

Best Warzone assault rifle loadouts

We’ve placed every Call of Duty: Warzone Assault Rifle into a ranked list and counted down the top AR loadouts you can run in Season 5 Reloaded.

Assault Rifles are a staple in Call of Duty. Capable of dealing high damage at almost any range, they’re the go-to for the majority of players. They’re especially prominent in Warzone for their versatility, and through the Gunsmith system, you can build them any way you like.

With every season and update, Warzone’s meta shifts. The Season 5 Reloaded update made impactful changes, and then September 15’s update brought down the best Assault Rifles. After these updates, a new meta has emerged.

Here’s a ranked list of every AR in Warzone Season 5, and loadouts for the top five.

Best AR in Warzone ranked list

Warzone FARA 83 in-game

This is our comprehensive list of every AR in Call of Duty: Warzone, and we’ve ranked them in ascending order to let you know which ones are worth using.

Here is every Warzone Assault Rifle in Season 5 ranked:

  1. Cold War AK-47
  2. FARA 83
  3. C58
  4. QBZ-83
  5. Grau 5.56
  6. CR-56 AMAX
  7. XM4
  8. M4A1
  9. EM2
  10. AS VAL
  11. Krig 6
  12. RAM-7
  13. M13
  14. Kilo 141
  15. FFAR 1
  16. Groza
  17. Oden
  18. AN-94
  19. FN-SCAR
  20. FAL
  21. FR 5.56
  22. Modern Warfare AK-47

Best Warzone AR loadouts

Here are the best Assault Rifles to use in Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island in Warzone Season 5.

These AR loadouts suit a range of different playstyles, whether you’re using it as a long-range beamer on Verdansk or for taking on any fight Rebirth Island throws at you.

5. Grau 5.56

Modern Warfare Grau 5.56

The Grau 5.56 has long been a fan-favorite weapon, and nerfs in Season 5 have brought it back to the spotlight.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Muzzle: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

What makes the Grau so powerful is its accuracy. Now that the zero-recoil Krig has finally been nerfed, the Grau could easily become the go-to choice for players looking for an easy-to-use Assault Rifle. Plus, it can be fitted with the Fully Loaded Perk to help you out in a pinch.

4. QBZ-83

QBZ-83 Warzone

You may be surprised to see the QBZ-83 on this list, the changes made in the Season 4 Reloaded update have catapulted it to be one of the best Assault Rifles in the game.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 15.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 60 Rnd Drum

The QBZ had long been considered one of Warzone’s worst Assault Rifles, but that all changed. Its minimum damage was increased, as well as its torso damage multipliers which made it the most underrated weapon.

With these attachments, it’s extremely easy to control and has a competitive TTK to boot. We don’t think it feels as nice as the weapons above it on this list, but you may have a ton of success while using it in Season 5 – particularly in Rebirth Island.

3. C58

Warzone C58 loadout

Warzone Season 4’s C58 quickly became recognized as an absolute powerhouse. It was one of the best ground loot options Warzone has seen, and it’s even better with a custom loadout.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd

Unlike some of the other weapons on this list, the C58’s close-range power is held back by its low fire rate, but its high damage and accuracy make it one of the best long-range options. If you spend some time learning how to use this beast, it’ll serve you extremely well when fighting in both Rebirth Island and Verdansk ’84.

2. FARA 83

Warzone FARA 83

The FARA 83 dominated Warzone up until the Season 4 Reloaded update where a nerf to its recoil control has just edged it out from the top spot. Now, following the September 15 update, the FARA has become an incredibly viable choice again.

  • Muzzle: Suppressor
  • Barrel: 16.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd

With almost no recoil and solid damage, the FARA 83 is an extremely easy weapon to use. Fans of the Grau 5.56 and Kilo 141 metas will enjoy using this build as it can simply laser enemies at range with a competitive TTK up-close.

While it doesn’t have the recoil control it once did, it didn’t get nerfed too hard on September 15, so it’s become a great option again.

1. Cold War AK-47

Ak 47 in Warzone

The Cold War AK-47 seriously fell down the rankings in Season 4 and 5, but after it wasn’t touched by the September 15 update, it is now arguably the best choice.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 27.4″ Ranger
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: 40 Rnd

Although not as easy to control as some of the other weapons on this list, the AK-47 absolutely slaps. It has a fantastic TTK and the recoil pattern is manageable for most players, so it’s very difficult to go wrong with this classic CoD Assault Rifle.

Also, you can build it for more close-range fights if you’d rather use it alongside some of the best Sniper Rifles in the game.


Bring any of these ARs into Verdansk ’84 in Warzone Season 5, and you’ll find yourself using some of the best weapons in Call of Duty’s battle royale.
