How to play Warzone Strat Roulette

Warzone players have been shaking up their gameplay with fun challenges set by Strat Roulette, so here’s how to play.

While Warzone is known for being uber-competitive at times, sometimes it’s fun to play with off-meta weapons and strategies for a change of scenery and a unique challenge. With over a hundred weapons to choose from and a ton that are viable in Season 3, it can be tough to choose which weapons to deploy.

This is where the Warzone Strat Roulette website comes in. By using this site, you can randomize your Loadout, Drop Zone, Vehicle, and give yourself a Special Rule.

Here’s how to play Warzone Strategy Roulette.

Playing Warzone Strat Roulette is simple:

  1. Head to Warzone Strat Roulette on your browser
  2. Make sure each category is selected, or deselect the options you don’t want
  3. Hit ‘Roll’
  4. Play CoD: Warzone and stick to the Loadout, Drop Zone, Vehicle, and Special Rule you’re assigned

The Loadout option will assign you with weapons from your loadout or force you to stick to specific Tiers of Ground Loot. Attachments are completely up to you but you could end with some of the best loadouts, or be left stuck with only using common weapons from the floor.

And, as it says on the tin, the Drop Zone will give you a random named location to land in. However, you should bear in mind that the Drop Zone list hasn’t been updated for Season 3 and Verdansk ’84, so if it says ‘Quarry,’ you should go to Salt Mine, and ‘Dam’ is Summit.

Whatever Vehicle the randomizer lands on is the only one you can use for the game, which may be tough if you get the ‘Vehicular Manslaughter’ Special Rule, in which you must run over every enemy you see.

Special Rules are set challenges to complete during the match, ranging from a mild inconvenience to downright frustrating.

Here are some of the options available:

  • Farmer: Jump from the plane with the AFK’ers
  • Lounge Chair: You can only get kills from a vehicle (no roadkills, shooting from a seat)
  • Heads Up: You must fire at least 3 warning shots close to the enemy before hitting them
  • Afraid of Heights: You can’t go above the first story of any building.

Bear in mind that there are no rewards or incentives offered, it’s simply a tool to give yourself a fun challenge inside Warzone.

Warzone TikTok loadout turns FiNN LMG into “insane” no recoil SMG

A TikTok user has found a brillant loadout for the FiNN LMG in Warzone Pacific Season 1 that turns it into an “insane” SMG.

A new Warzone TikTok loadout for the FiNN LMG has been found which turns it into a crazy no recoil SMG.

Warzone Pacific Season 1 has quite a few options when it comes to SMGs, especially after the introduction of the Welgun in the mid-season update.

While the focus has definitely been on Vanguard weapons since the integration, now that the playlist updates have brought back the standard battle royale mode for all squad sizes, players are using Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War guns once again.

With that being said, one player may have found a great loadout for the FiNN LMG which turns it into a beastly SMG.

TikTok user liquidity posted a video showing off a new FiNN LMG loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1 that turns the weapon into a great SMG option.

Here are the attachments you’ll need to make this “Insane” Warzone TikTok FiNN SMG loadout:

  • Barrel: FTAC VC-8 Harrier Adverse
  • Muzzel: Lightweight Suppressor
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Stock: No Stock

The content creator even calls the weapon “meta,” showing off a clip of him destroying players on Rebirth Island with it.

This weapon is recommended for medium to close range, and as you can see from the gameplay, it’s a loadout that will work well on Rebirth Island due to the more close-ranged combat.

Definitely give this loadout a try if you’re bored of using SMGs like the MP40, PPSH-41, and Owen Gun, which was recently named the most underrated SMG in the game.

If you’re interested in a more orthodox loadout for the FiNN LMG, or just want to know how you can unlock it, check out our guide on the best loadout for it.

How to level up guns fast in Warzone: Quickest Weapon XP strategies

Here are the fastest ways to level up Mw, Cold War, and Vanguard weapons in Warzone to help you dominate your enemies.

Warzone Operators in Pacific Caldera

Call of Duty: Warzone has plenty of amazing weapons to use, and they all perform better with the right attachments. Here are the quickest ways to level up Modern Warfare, Cold War, and Vanguard weapons in Warzone Pacific. 

Leveling up comes in all forms for Call of Duty whether it’s a new season’s Battle Pass, trying to reach a new Prestige Level, or the weapons themselves. Most attachments will give you huge advantages in gameplay, so players are naturally keen to unlock them for their favorite, and best, guns in Warzone.

Vanguard’s weapons have around 70 levels each, so they take an incredibly long time to level up. Several methods to earn rapid XP have popped up in the past, but Warzone’s devs are always quick to shut them down.

Luckily we’ve found consistent and quick ways to level up weapons in Warzone that will have your guns max level in no time.

Complete Warzone Contracts

When everyone drops into Caldera or Rebirth Island, the map is filled with many contracts that players can activate. These are optional undertakings that players can choose to participate in to earn more XP and money during the game.

Warzone’s battle royale mode contains the following contracts for players to pick up and complete:

  • Bounty
  • Big Game Bounty
  • Most Wanted
  • Recon
  • Scavenger
  • Supply Drop
  • Supply Run

As long as you have your weapon equipped, then completing these objectives will give you additional XP that contributes towards your weapon of choice.

We recommend completing Supply Runs in Helicopters or cars, as you’ll be able to pick up a ton of XP just by driving around the map.

Play Plunder & Rebirth Island – NOT Battle Royale

If you want to use your completed weapons to rack up some serious Call of Duty: Warzone wins then fair enough. But if you’re still in the process of building the best Warzone loadouts, then we advise against playing battle royale.

With Warzone Pacific’s Loadout Drop delay, your chances of getting your own weapons have been drastically reduced. You’ll need to survive for almost seven minutes using weapons found on the floor, so there’s no guarantee that you’ll get your weapons.

Instead, engage in some of Warzone’s more respawn-friendly modes such as Plunder or Rebirth Island that allow players to either spawn in with their weapons or get a Loadout Drop early. You should also be able to net far more kills in these respawn game modes. 

Get kills in the pre-game lobby

While it won’t give a ton of progress, getting kills in the pre-game lobby will give you a nice XP boost to start the match. 

Whilst the timer ticks down, you’ll typically see many players freefall to the ground, or float down to the ground in a straight line.

This is a sure sign that the player is AFK, and is probably preoccupied on their phone as they wait for the match to begin. But this is an opportunity for you to earn some cheeky XP, as kills in the pre-match lobby still reward you with XP.

Take advantage of Double XP weekends & Tokens

Call of Duty devs usually offers Double XP weekends around big updates, where players can earn Double Weapon, Battle Pass, Operator, and regular XP. 

We recommend making sure you’re equipping the weapons you want to level up during these weekends as you’ll get a massive boost without having to use any of your Double XP Tokens. 

And of course, you can use these Double XP Tokens when there’s no Double XP weekend active.

Use the Surplus Perk on Vanguard guns

Vanguard comes with the Surplus Perk, which boosts your XP earned by around 1.5x. 

Make sure you’re running Surplus on any weapon you want to level up, and you’ll find yourself earning much more XP. Plus, this actually stacks with Double XP weekends, so you can earn roughly 3x the regular XP.

Warzone players are spawning in the Gulag with invisible guns

Warzone players are being forced to play the Gulag with completely invisible guns, making it nearly impossible to aim.

Warzone Pacific Gulag

Warzone players have been left baffled and annoyed after their weapons have turned completely invisible in Caldera’s Gulag.

While Warzone’s Pacific update gave the game a much-needed breath of life, a stream of bugs and glitches have been ruining the game for many. Invisible skins, Loadouts falling through the map, and Xbox players unable to launch the game are only a few of the issues affecting Caldera.

Console players, in particular, have complained about their weapons taking a few seconds to load in. The issue keeps getting worse, as players are having to fight their Gulag with completely invisible guns.

It’s no surprise that the almost nine-year-old original Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are struggling to run the sprawling, intricately detailed Caldera. But, Warzone has almost reached the point of being unplayable thanks to performance issues and game-breaking glitches.

While not entirely new, the glitch that turns weapons invisible arrived in Caldera with a vengeance, and now it’s ruining Gulag matches for both generations of consoles.

A player shared their frustrating Gulag experience in the Warzone subreddit, sarcastically saying: “Invisible gun gulag is very cool, thank you Raven.”

In the clip, we can see their gun is completely invisible, and it’s only made worse by the crosshair disappearing when they aim down sight. Somehow, they clutch the win while the enemy has their back turned but not every player will be so lucky.

This clearly wasn’t a one-off issue, as Reddit user ‘Spixced’ said that the invisible gun glitch makes both the game and the Gulag “virtually unplayable.”

Call of Duty’s developers announced on January 13 that console performance is one of the areas they’re working on, and invisible guns will fall under this umbrella. They’ve even delayed the Season 2 update to February 14 to have more time to work on “optimizations to gameplay and game balance.”

Consoles make up a majority of Warzone’s player base, so hopefully, the developers will be able to optimize the game into a working state soon.
