YouTuber Jack “JackFrags” Mason has explained the trick to get “maximum aim assist” with a controller in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4.

JackFrags has long been a mouse and keyboard player but recently tried out a controller and found great success. He said that even though he’s still new to aiming with a controller, he won eight games of Verdansk mini-royale in a row.

Even though he’s not well-practiced with a controller, JackFrags quickly realized how to get the “maximum aim assist” in Warzone Season 4.

Here’s what he discovered, and how you can maximize your controller aim in Call of Duty.

After JackFrags applied the best controller settings, he discovered that aim assist is movement-based, so while strafing, your crosshair and camera will actually lock on to the enemy, rotating to keep you facing them.

Standing still, your aim won’t ‘magnetize’ to the enemy, but as soon as you move, it will soft-lock onto them. While moving, both your crosshair and camera will follow the enemy, tracking both vertical and horizontal movement.

So if you’re looking for the maximum aim assist possible, you should make sure that you’re moving while fighting. Standing still will both make you an easier target and have less aim assist, so your gameplay will massively improve if you can get your movement perfected.

The majority of Warzone pros play with controllers on PC, and because they’re top-tier, they’re constantly using movement to their advantage. This is likely one of the many subtle tricks the world’s best deploy to get the edge on their opponents, and now you can use it too.

JackFrags has already discussed the major advantages that PC players have over their console counterparts. These include high frame rates, customizable graphics settings, high FOV, and NVIDIA filters. With Warzone featuring forced crossplay, this becomes an issue.

Jack explained that Warzone tends to match inputs, so controller players will be matched with other controller players. When a PC player is using a controller, they mostly play with console players, who don’t have all of these advantages.

JackFrags believes PC players have an unfair advantage over console players, but with this aim assist trick, you’ll be able to shoot like the pros.

Warzone QA testers stage walkout days before Pacific Caldera launch

On December 6 Raven Software QA testers staged a walkout to protest the company’s sudden layoffs that began last week.

Warzone Raven walkout

In what is set to be a busy period for Raven Software, QA testers have staged a walkout as a response to layoffs announced by the company on December 3.

On December 3, the gaming industry received the news of significant layoffs taking place at Raven Software. The layoffs mainly involved the Quality Assurance team that works on Warzone content. Just three days later and most of a team of around 40 members are protesting the decision.

With Warzone Pacific’s highly-anticipated launch only two days away, one would imagine that this is a vital time for the company. Those who engaged in the walkout have claimed that they will not return until the layoffs are reversed.

Raven’s Quality Assurance testers stated that the layoffs began on December 3 as individuals were brought into meetings to receive the news. The layoffs came as a shock to the majority of the QA team seeing as they’d been assured that positive changes to the payment structure were on their way.

The detailed statement from the workers below confirms that these changes are arriving after “five weeks of overtime and, before an anticipated end of year crunch.” Their contracts are set to be terminated on January 28th.

The QA testers hope that the walkout will result in permanent full-time positions for the entire team.

A spokesperson from Raven’s parent company Activision has responded to the protest in a recent statement, “We are converting approximately 500 temporary workers to full-time employees in the coming months. Unfortunately, as part of this change, we also have notified 20 temporary workers across studios that their contracts would not be extended.”

It remains to be seen if Activision’s response will encourage employees to return to work. This is going to be a vital week for Activision between the ongoing protests and the launch of new in-game content across Vanguard and Warzone.

For the latest updates concerning this story and the slatted release of Warzone Pacific: Caldera stay tuned to Charlie INTEL.

FaZe Swagg reveals Vanguard weapon that will dominate Warzone Pacific

As Call of Duty players are gearing up for Warzone Pacific, FaZe Swagg claims this Vanguard weapon is going to dominate from the start.

M1 Garand Swagg

Warzone Pacific is right around the corner and players are starting to wonder which Vanguard weapons will make their mark. FaZe Swagg believes this Marksman Rifle is poised to take over. 

Alongside a brand new map, Warzone players will receive an extensive selection of new weapons to choose from. On December 8, players will get the chance to test out a whopping 40 Vanguard weapons

Of the 40 new additions, Warzone superstar Swagg has his eye on one in particular. Predicting meta shifts is no easy task but Swagg certainly has the pedigree and experience to back up his claims. 

M1 Garand Heirloom blueprint

When Swagg hits Caldera’s sandy shores on December 8, he’ll be doing so with M1 Garand in hand. Interestingly enough, Vanguard’s M1 Garand has been available as a weapon in Warzone as of Season 6

Swagg was able to test the weapon in Verdansk and he believes its excellent qualities will carry over to Caldera. Of the 40 new weapons, the M1 Garand is one of three Marksman Rifles. As evidenced in Swagg’s video, players will need a steady trigger finger to utilize the semi-automatic weapon. 

M1 Garand Heirloom attachments

M1 Garand heirloom blueprint attachments
  • Muzzle: Mk. 2 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Cooper 25″ Custom
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Cooper Adjustable
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: Extended Mags
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Reargrip
  • Perk 1: Acquisition Perk 1

The Heirloom M1 Garand blueprint is available through the Season 6 battle pass once players hit the 72nd tier. 

Unfortunately, these are preset attachments that currently cannot be adjusted in Warzone. Once Warzone Pacific launches on December 8, players will be able to tweak this weapon’s attachments in Warzone and make it more powerful.

For now, you may want to focus on gaining weapon level XP with the M1 Garand in Vanguard. With more attachments at your disposal, you’ll be able to easily adapt to the Warzone meta. This loadout will produce the best results in Vanguard’s Multiplayer.


Stay tuned to CharlieINTEL throughout Vanguard Season 1 and Warzone Pacific launch week for all the latest news and updates.

Warzone players want one major fix from Verdansk to ensure Pacific Caldera is amazing

Warzone players are excited for Pacific Caldera, but one major fix to an issue that haunted Verdansk could make the game even better.

Player firing a weapon in Warzone Pacific Caldera

Warzone’s Pacific Caldera map release is just days away, but players are begging Raven to fix an issue with the game’s parachutes that could make dropping in a nightmare.

After months of speculation and hype, we are just days away from saying farewell to Verdansk. The launch of Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 will introduce the new Pacific Caldera map, with players able to explore and battle on the island from December 8.

While players are excited about the major update, fans are extremely concerned about one issue that has plagued Warzone since launch which still hasn’t been fixed: Parachute deployment.

Warzone player dropping into Verdansk

In a post on the official Warzone subreddit, players banded together to complain about the game’s parachute system. When jumping off high areas like buildings or cliffs, the game usually lets players pull their chute to avoid dying from fall damage.

Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case, as many Warzone competitors have jumped off ledges expecting to be fine, only to plummet to their demise. With Pacific Caldera appearing to have a heap of high spots like cliffs, mountains, and buildings, this could prove to be a serious issue.

To hammer home the point, Reddit user ‘TTV_xxero_foxx’ included a clip of them jumping off a rock area, only to slam into the stone and eliminate themselves. “For the love of God, fix parachute deployment issues with Caldera,” they wrote. “That map looks like it has a lot of verticality in the middle and I’m sick of dying like this.”

Other Warzone players agreed with this sentiment, with one user admitting they feared Caldera would be even worse than Verdansk because of the “varying landscape,” while another labeled it “super annoying” and said it happens to them when they jumped off buildings.

Most players agree that the issue seems to come from players being too close to buildings when they jump off, which appears to stop parachutes opening.


Whether Raven Software has addressed this issue remains to be seen, but we’ll find out on December 8 when the map releases for everyone. Warzone’s devs have already responded to concerns about the major changes to loadout drops in Pacific Caldera.
