Warzone Season 4 character firing weapon

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.

How to open Fortune’s Keep wine bottle Vault with Warzone Easter Egg

Warzone Season 4’s new Fortune’s Keep map is full of Easter Eggs to discover. Here’s how to open the wine bottle Vault.

Published

Valuable loot is waiting behind Fortune’s Keep secret wine bottle Vault, but you’ll need to complete the Easter Egg to get in. Here’s a guide to opening the Vault on Warzone Season 4’s Fortune’s Keep.

Warzone Season 4 delivered a ton of map-related content with major changes hitting Caldera and the release of Fortune’s Keep. From the Call of Duty community to top players, most seem to be enjoying the new map with an overwhelmingly positive initial reaction.

If you’re still getting to grips with the new territory, you’ll want to keep in mind that there are a ton of secrets to uncover including a Zombie summoning Easter Egg. Much like Caldera and Verdansk before it, Fortune’s Keep also has a hidden Vault to discover.

How to open wine bottle Vault on Warzone Fortune’s Keep

If you haven’t already discovered this secret Vault on your own, it’ll be worth a shot as the contents hidden in the Vault can set you up for a victory.

There will likely be several players attempting to open the Vault so you should prepare for engagements along the way, but here’s how it’s done:

  1. Find two wine bottles around the Terraces POI
  2. Head to the Keep POI
  3. Place the two bottles on the empty shelf across from the dining table
  4. The secret door will open allowing you to loot the Vault

Opening the Vault is easy enough as your most difficult task will be to locate the wine bottles. You’ll want to look on tables and shelves within the Terraces POI for the wine bottles as they’ll appear on these surfaces frequently.

There’s no denying that the Keep POI is one of the map’s high-traffic areas, so making it in and out of the Vault safely is no guarantee. The required shelf is located right next to the massive table in the dining area of Keep. Players will likely attempt to ambush you on your way out of the Vault.

Warzone Fortune’s Keep Vault Easter Egg loot

Once you get the Fortune’s Keep Vault open you could be in a hurry to loot up as quickly as possible. Here are the items you can expect to find inside the Vault:

  • $5000 cash
  • Legendary Combat Shield
  • Legendary Skal Crusher
  • Killstreak
  • 3 weapon blueprints

The Killstreak and 3 weapon blueprints will vary from match to match, but it’s safe to say that all the loot in the Vault can propel you to Warzone success, especially in the early game when those weapon blueprints will do some serious damage.

Going through the hard work of finding the wine bottles and getting the Vault open can certainly pay off. However, if you’re not interested in putting in the leg work, you can always wait for unsuspecting players to open the Keep Vault and attempt to steal their loot.

Best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4

The Warzone H4 Blixen is a great option in Season 4, especially with our recommended attachments, equipment, and Perks.

Published

on

After being introduced last season, the H4 Blixen remains a strong SMG choice in Warzone Season 4. To make the most of this devastating weapon, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout.

Warzone Season 4 is here, and it’s gone through great lengths to shake up the CoD battle royale. Raven have introduced a new Rebirth Island-style map called Fortune’s Keep, and even major Perk changes.

Vanguard weapons have been dominating the new season, and the H4 Blixen is no exception. Despite the new Marco 5 SMG coming in strong, the Blixen definitely still holds its own.

This powerful and accurate SMG could easily challenge the close to mid-range meta, but before you drop straight into the action, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Bergstrom 17″ F3
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Perfectionist
  • Perk 2: Quick

We kick off our best H4 Blixen loadout with the Recoil Booster, as the SMG is relatively slow-firing compared to other guns in its class, so this increases the fire rate and lowers the TTK. Then, we went for the Bergstrom 17″ F3 Barrel, m1941 Hand Stop, and Polymer Grip to increase accuracy in mid-range fights.

Next up we opted for the Removed Stock option for a big boost in movement, ADS, and sprint-to-fire speed, all of which are vital at close range. In terms of Optics, we felt a standard Slate Reflector is a solid choice, but this can be switched for whichever sight you are most comfortable with.

7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags are a great choice for the H4 Blixen, as the gun’s laser-like accuracy pairs nicely with the attachment’s boost in headshot damage. Loading up with Lengthened ammo also raises the bullet velocity and lowers the TTK even further.

Finally, we recommend Perfectionist for Perk 1, to offer up one last boost in recoil control, and Quick to make you incredibly mobile in tight-nit situations.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Tempered
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

Equipping Double Time will increase the duration of Tactical Sprint, allowing you to move across Caldera much faster, making rushing enemy teams a breeze.

The H4 Blixen is an ideal Sniper support weapon, so we recommend running Overkill to bring along a HDR or AX-50. Then, for your second option, run Tempered to help you recover to max health quicker after a gunfight.

Finally, the Amped Perk is a must to let you switch between your two primaries as quickly as possible, so you’re never caught with the wrong weapon for too long.

When it comes to Equipment, Semtex are an easy-to-use lethal that can score quick kills, while Stims offer a useful health boost to get you out of a pinch.

How to unlock H4 Blixen in Warzone

Warzone players can unlock the H4 Blixen by getting three Slide kills in a single match 15 times.

The easiest way to complete this challenge is by hopping into Vanguard multiplayer and racking up the kills. But if you only play Warzone, a mode like Clash is probably your best bet.

Best alternatives to H4 Blixen in Warzone

If the H4 Blixen isn’t cutting it for you, there are plenty of other meta SMGs that might suit you better.

Both the MP40 and Owen Gun are two of the game’s best Sniper supports, and can both hold their own at mid-range as well.
