The Krig 6 has been a meta-breaker for the longest time, now it’s in Warzone to rack up even more kills. To make it look more stylish, find out how to unlock the gun’s Hazardous blueprint.
The Warzone is even badder and more fearsome now that it’s packing an even bigger arsenal of deadly weapons for people to get their hands on. One such weapon is the Krig 6 that comes directly from Treyarch’s Black Ops Cold War.
The Krig 6 has excellent accuracy, superb damage, and its impact extends perfectly at range. It’s a popular weapon of choice, but make yours stand out by learning how to earn and apply the Hazardous blueprint.
Unlock the Krig 6 Hazardous blueprint in Warzone
The central focus for these challenges is Rebirth Island – the new map added to Warzone. There are 16 challenges for you to power your way through in order to land the Hazardous blueprint.
Be warned though, 16 may not seem like a lot of objectives for you to complete, but the nature of them means you’ll be doing them for quite some time.
Here’s what you’ll need to do unlock the blueprint:
- Pilot a vehicle for 20 minutes on Rebirth Island
- Complete any 30 contracts on Rebirth Island
- Buy 30 Killstreak items on Rebirth Island
- Collect 200 piles of plunder from the ground on Rebirth Island
- Open 100 crates on Rebirth Island
- Collect your loadout 20 times on Rebirth Island
- Place in the top 30% 5 times on Rebirth Island
- Get 300 kills with a Common weapon on Rebirth Island
- Get 30 kills with a legendary weapon on Rebirth Island
- Get 2 kills or assists while in a vehicle on Rebirth Island
- Destroy 1 vehicle carrying enemies on Rebirth Island
- Use 50 armor plates on Rebirth Island
- Place in the 30% 15 times on Rebirth Island
- Place in the top 30% 30 times on Rebirth Island
- Get a kill before the first circle closes 1 time on Rebirth Island
- Kill 100 Downed enemies on Rebirth Island
From a glance, if destroying vehicles or completing contracts isn’t something you do normally, then you’re definitely going to have to go out of your way to do it now.
So there you go, if you want to customize your Krig 6 to have that dirgy, chemically look, then you had better get to work on Rebirth Island!

NICKMERCS shows off his new dominant FFAR class in Warzone
Despite the recent patch nerfing the FFAR in Warzone, NICKMERCS has revealed a new loadout that still dominates, and we have the full setup.
The overpowered FFAR Assault Rifle was recently nerfed in CoD: Warzone Season 2, increasing its ADS time. But Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff has revealed an updated FFAR loadout that still owns in Call of Duty’s battle royale.
It’s been hard to find a lobby or gameplay video during Warzone Season 2 that didn’t feature either the AUG or the FFAR. In particular, the FFAR has proven to be a very worthwhile weapon to use at any range and has featured as many player’s primary and secondary weapons.
It was, however, subject to a recent nerf that increases how long it takes to look down the sight or scope. This effectively made it riskier to use in a 1v1 if the other player has a quicker gun. But regardless of the update, many players are still sporting an FFAR class, with FaZe’s NICKMERCS showing off his latest loadout.
He then discusses the nerf that was supposed to significantly reduce the gun’s viability saying, “But I still don’t really see a big difference as everybody all over the map has an FFAR in their hands, and if you don’t have an FFAR in your hand then I don’t know, it’s kinda hard to move around really.”
It’s not the first time that Nick has allowed people to see his FFAR loadout as he has shown off his dominant FFAR loadout before, pre-patch.
Nick says, “We all have different playstyles and different speeds we play at” but would encourage people to “definitely try my setup.”
NICKMERCS new post-nerf FFAR loadout for Warzone Season 2
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 21.2″ Ranger
- Stock: Raider Stock
- Underbarrel: Infiltrator Grip
- Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd
Irrespective of the nerf, Nick’s new class doesn’t do anything special to counteract the ADS time for the FFAR. It largely focuses on adding damage and range and making the FFAR an absolutely potent killer.
If NICKMERCS recommends that you use this class, then we think it would be a wise bet to try this out before the FFAR is afflicted by more measures in the future.

How to change your username in Call of Duty: Warzone & Cold War
Ever wanted to change your Activision ID? Here’s how to change your username for free in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
Activision lets you change your Call of Duty username free of charge, so here’s how to set a new display name in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.
Changing your display name on PlayStation and Xbox can sometimes be costly, but in Call of Duty, you can change your name as many times as you like. This will only affect your CoD name, so you can keep your Gamertag or PlayStation ID for other games.
Your Activision ID will be your username followed by a hash mark (#) and a series of numbers. This means you can set your name to be whatever you like without having to worry if the name is already taken.
Activision also allows you to change your username for free. You’ll get a new name change ticket every six months but you can only carry two at a time.
Here’s how to change your username in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.
How to change your Call of Duty username
If you’d like to change your Call of Duty username for Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War, here’s how to do it.

How to report offensive Call of Duty usernames
While Activision automatically blocks offensive usernames, players can sometimes get past this by using special characters or abbreviations. If you spot an offensive username in-game, Activision lets you report them.
To report a players username or Clan Tag:
- Press ‘Y’ on Xbox or ‘△’ PlayStation to open the Social tab / select the Social tab on PC
- Select ‘Recent Players’
- Highlight the player you wish to report and select them

That’s everything you need to know about changing your Call of Duty username – you’ll only get a new ticket every six months so choose your name wisely!

Crazy new cheats are making Warzone impossible to win
Warzone cheaters have begun using crazy, never-seen-before hacks that make the game impossible to win for honest players.
While Call of Duty: Warzone hackers have been aim-botting and wall-hacking since the game’s launch, these cheaters have now found brand new ways to hack their way to wins.
Although Activision have permanently banned almost half a million cheaters since Warzone’s launch in 2020, some still slip through the cracks.
You can usually spot cheaters with blatant aim-bot while spectating them, and some even upload their footage to TikTok and Facebook. But sometimes wall-hacks and a soft aim-lock are more difficult to spot. With Activision confirming they are giving hardware bans to repeat offenders, cheaters likely don’t want to get caught.
However, one of Warzone’s top players, Stephen “Yungstaz” Galloway, found a cheater blatantly showing off a plethora of new hacks, such as auto live pinging every player in the lobby, equipping night vision goggles, and repeatedly changing their name.
In a clip uploaded to his Twitter account, Yungstaz said that “hackers are evolving.” With never-before-seen cheats, we can see that every player in the lobby is being live-pinged by the hacker. Not only do they aim-lock and kill players through walls, but they somehow also equip night vision goggles, usually reserved for Modern Warfare’s multiplayer.

While cheats usually only benefit the cheater and not the rest of their team, this live ping cheat likely gives wall-hacks to the entire squad, making the game the game impossible to win for honest players. Yungstaz and his squad were understandably confused, with the streamer saying they’ve “never seen this from a hacker before.”
After the game had finished, Yungstaz invited the cheater to his lobby for a chat on-stream.
As the cheater changed his username over and over, which you can usually only do once every six months, they asked him how long he had been cheating on that account. He told them he had been blatantly cheating for “five months” without any bans being issued.
When pressed on how much the hacks cost, the cheater said “they are not for sale.” The streamers drew the conclusion that he had made the cheats himself, so it’s comforting to know these hacks might not be being passed on.
