Warzone players on PlayStation 5 can now boost their FPS, with the game’s Season 4 update adding 120Hz support for anyone with the right monitor and equipment.

Warzone Season 5 has introduced various changes to the Warzone, including a new Look for Party feature, which improves the game’s quality of life, and will be getting even more new additions like The Numbers Event and a Judge Dredd skin in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.

As well as this, Warzone also has the ability to perform 120Hz on PS5, a nice upgrade for those lucky enough to have the console.

This was introduced in the Season 4 patch and means that players who use the PS5 console can now play at 120 Frames-per-Second as long as your monitor is capable.

How to enable 120Hz Warzone on PS5

If you’ve already set up your PS5 to allow for 120Hz output in other games, then the good news is Warzone should automatically play at 120 FPS once you install the update. If this isn’t the case for your console, you’ll have to head into your PS5 system settings and make a few simple changes.

  1. Go to your PS5 system settings screen, and select the ‘Screen and Video’ Section.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of this page and select ‘Video Output.’
  3. Set ‘Enable 120Hz Output’ to automatic.
  4. Go back to the main system settings menu and select ‘Saved Data and Game/App Settings.’
  5. Change ‘Game Presets’ to Performance Mode.

By turning these settings on, your PS5 will automatically play games at 120 FPS if it is supported. One thing to note is that some players have reported that games will occasionally still run at 60 FPS if HDR is turned on, so you may need to disable it to ensure top performance.

If you don’t have HDMI 2.1 on your monitor, you will need to change your resolution to get 120 FPS. Make sure your monitor is set to 1080p resolution, as it will not work at 2160p on monitors without HDMI 2.1.

Of course, this is only possible if your monitor supports 120 Hz output, so make sure you check the refresh rate on your screen before attempting this. Otherwise, you will be wasting your time.

Warzone players insist devs need to revert Sniper changes in Season 4

Sniping in Warzone was completely altered with the Season 3 update, and players are demanding to revert the change in Season 4.

Warzone Season 3’s major Sniper overhaul is leaving players frustrated as demands to revert the changes in an upcoming Season 4 update increase.

The Warzone Season 3 update delivered nerfs to several Snipers in the game that essentially removed their ability to one-shot kill players from long-range positions. In Season 4, only a few weapons like the HDR, ZRG, and AX-50 can still one-shot kill players with a headshot from any distance.

Although players seem to be enjoying the new Fortune’s Keep map, some are frustrated with the performance of the previously nerfed Sniper Rifles.

A post to the Warzone subreddit titled “There is no fun in sniping anymore” showcases how punishing it could be to use a Sniper in Warzone Season 4.

The player in the video hits two great shots with the Vanguard Kar98k but is left with nothing to show for it since headshots with the weapon do not consistently kill enemies following the Season 3 update.

One player cannot understand why the challenging feat of landing a headshot doesn’t result in a kill: “I truly believe they need to revert the headshot multiplier for marksman rifles. Change the bullet velocity and decrease body/limb damage, but landing headshots is hard enough from a distance, why do I need 2 now?”

The player is frustrated that the devs decided to adjust certain Snipers by limiting their potential to kill with a shot to the head. Instead, they believe that different adjustments could have been implemented to balance Snipers.

For many, Sniping was the most entertaining aspect of Warzone, but it seems that the Season 3 changes axed the fun out of the playstyle. One player explains how, “It sucks they made it so much less viable, definitely made the game less fun for me.”

According to players, the devs’ attempts to balance Sniper Rifles were too one-sided, leaving certain Snipers in an unusable state. Limiting the number of viable weapons was never going to satisfy players, but others point out that you simply need to use Warzone Snipers that were not affected by the changes, “Use the 3 line. Problem solved.”

Best HDR loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 4

The HDR is the top Sniper Rifle of choice for many, and here’s the best HDR loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Published

warzone pacific HDR

The HDR Sniper Rifle is a great choice in Warzone, and you can use the right attachments, Perks, and equipment to make the best HDR loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 4.

If you’re looking for a great Sniper Rifle to pick off your enemies from a distance in Warzone then the HDR is an extremely viable choice, thanks to its solid ADS speed and ability to one-shot headshot enemies.

While the Warzone Pacific Season 4 update has shifted the meta by bringing a ton of weapon buffs and nerfs, the HDR continues to remain a great long-range option. You can make it even deadlier with the right attachments, Perks, and equipment.

Here’s the best HDR loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Best Warzone HDR loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 26.9″ HDR Pro
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Variable Zoom Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Stalker-Scout

We’ll start off this Warzone Pacific HDR loadout by equipping the Monolithic Suppressor muzzle and 26.9″ HDR Pro barrel to buff the Sniper Rifle’s effective damage range and bullet velocity.

You’ll now be able to score one-shot kills from a distance, and we recommend taking advantage of the Variable Zoom Scope optic’s magnification to pick off enemies in long-range combat.

These attachments come with a cost to your ADS speed, so we’ll make up for that with the help of the Tac Laser and FTAC Stalker-Scout stock.

Best Perks & Equipment to use with Warzone HDR class

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical equipment: Stim

When you camp at one spot with a Sniper Rifle, you’ll need to keep an eye out for enemies throwing Grenades and Semtex at you. For that reason, we recommend equipping the E.O.D to protect you from explosive damage.

You’ll want to use Overkill to pair this weapon with a medium-range Assault Rifle like the XM4 or a close-range SMG like the Marco 5. Finally, Amped will let you swap between both weapons quickly.

For the equipment, we’ve opted for the Throwing Knife to help you eliminate downed enemies, and the Stim regenerates your health after taking damage.

How to unlock the HDR in Warzone

If you want to get your hands on this Sniper Rifle to make the best Warzone HDR loadout, play until you reach Level 11.

At this point, the weapon will become unlocked, and you’ll be able to use it to cause some pain in Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Best HDR alternatives in Warzone

If you’re looking for an alternative then be sure to try out our ZRG 20mm loadout as this weapon has a faster ADS speed and higher bullet velocity than the HDR. The Pelington is another great choice for its high bullet velocity and ability to one-shot headshot foes.

Call of Duty expert WhosImmortal has revealed the best SMG loadout with an “absurd TTK” that you can use following the meta changes in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

The Warzone Pacific Season 4 update had a significant impact on the game’s meta after introducing numerous buffs and nerfs to the game’s existing weapons as well as adding the new Marco 5 SMG.

As a result, players are wondering which SMG is the most effective choice, and Warzone expert WhosImmortal has shared his loadout for the best Season 4 SMG with an insanely fast TTK.

Vanguard Type 100 SMG in Warzone

WhosImmortal went over the best SMG loadouts that players can use in Warzone Pacific Season 4, including the Owen Gun, MP40, and MAC-10. While these are all effective choices, the top spot on this list went to the Type 100.

After going over the stats for the SMG, the Warzone expert praised its “absurd” TTK which allows it to eliminate enemies extremely fast. He then shared his best loadout for the Type 100.

WhosImmortal’s Type 100 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Sakura 196mm Light
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Warubachi Grip Folding 
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 9mm Kurz 48 Rounds Drum
  • Ammo Type: Subsonic
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip 
  • Perk: Gung-Ho
  • Perk 2: Quick

He starts off this loadout with the Recoil Booster muzzle and M1941 Hand Stop underbarrel to bring the weapon’s recoil under control. This will allow greater precision, and the Slate Reflector is a reliable optic choice.

The Sakura 196mm light barrel, Taped Grip, and Warubachi Grip Folding stock will boost the weapon’s ADS speed, Aim Walking movement speed, and Sprint to Fire speed. This will ensure that you move around the map faster.

He went with the 9mm Kurz 48 Rounds Drum to give the weapon plenty of ammo, and the Subsonic rounds will ensure that there is no minimap ping when you fire your weapon. Gung-Ho will allow you to fire while sprinting and Quick will improve your sprint speed.

This Warzone Pacific Season 4 loadout will grant you high mobility and low recoil so that you can properly take advantage of the Type 100’s TTK. So, be sure to try it out after you hop into the game.
