JackFrags reveals why Warzone PC players have major advantage over console enemies

YouTuber Jack “JackFrags” Mason has demonstrated the many advantages PC players have over console players, saying the developers may need to make changes to even the playing field.

It has now become commonplace for games to feature crossplay with PC, Xbox, and PlayStation players able to party up and play each other on the same servers. While this has been a massive step forward for online gaming, hardware can provide significant advantages to some.

While console Warzone players get aim-assist, PC players receive a plethora of advantages over their Xbox and PlayStation counterparts. On March 14, YouTuber JackFrags demonstrated these major advantages PC players benefit from.

Warzone's Roze skin in a dark area

The ‘sweaty Roze skin‘ has been a contentious issue in Warzone since its introduction in MW Season 5 because it perfectly blends into the dark corners of Verdansk. JackFrags shows how PC players using NVIDIA hardware can use filters to change how the game looks.

By standing in one of Verdansk’s apartment staircases, the Roze skin is completely concealed in the shadowy corner. After applying NVIDIA filters, the stairway becomes much brighter and Roze is standing there plain as day. With these filters, you can spot players who would usually be concealed in these dark corners of Superstore, garages, and staircases.

If you’re on PC and want to use these NVIDIA filters yourself, you can follow our guide on the best PC settings for Warzone Season 2.

Console Warzone players have long been begging Activision for Warzone to have a field of view slider. Most shooters such as Battlefield and even Black Ops Cold War have this slider, but it’s a notable exclusion from the console versions of Modern Warfare and Warzone. JackFrags demonstrated how powerful a higher FOV is.

Console FOV is around 80, so JackFrags set his game to this. Everything was quite zoomed in, and he could only see what was directly in front of him. After boosting his FOV to 105, which is around the standard for PC players, he could see a player off to his side that was completely cut off by the field of view. Having this high FOV allows you to see more of what’s in front of you, giving a huge advantage to those that can use it.

And on top of these advantages, PC players also benefit from higher frames-per-second, sharper visuals, and more in-game customization settings.

“When you can alter the look of the game so much on PC, and make those skins stand out, it does raise a few eyebrows and you think, well, is it really that fair?” said the YouTuber.

While PC undeniably has these advantages, JackFrags puts it to the developers to even the playing field. He suggests blocking the NVIDIA filters like another shooter, Hunt: Showdown, did in the past. Unless Warzone gets a next-gen version for the latest consoles, PC players will remain at a significant advantage over their console enemies.

FaZe Swagg shows off powerful one-burst CX-9 loadout

FaZe Swagg has added a new attachment to his CX-9 SMG that is helping him to dominate Warzone, here’s the full loadout.

FaZe’s Kris “Swagg” Lamberson has changed up his CX-9 loadout in Warzone Season 4, and the new 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags attachment is “cooking” enemies in Call of Duty.

The new CX-9 SMG has become quite a popular weapon since it arrived in Warzone. Aside from it being new and exciting, it’s also quite a solid SMG to use in Season 4 – joining the other best SMGs to use in Warzone.

So to try and make it even more devastating than it already is, FaZe’s Swagg has come up with another spin on the CX-9. He’s added the 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags to his SMG, and the results have been incredible for him.

Swagg kicks off his newest video by saying: “A lot of you guys don’t know but the CX-9 actually comes with Hollow Point 12 Round Mags, it turns the gun into three-round bursts and it ups the damage a lot.

“The damage, the speed, and all that stuff too, it makes this gun hard-hitting. I was playing some duos today, and I was cooking every single person I saw, it was ridiculous.”

He then goes into the gameplay and drops a healthy 22-kill game, with many of them coming at the hands of the CX-9 and its Hollow Point rounds.

  • Barrel: CX-38S
  • Optic: G.I Mini Reflex
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 9mm Hollow Point 12-R
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand

One of the biggest selling points of the CX-9 is that already comes with a suppressor – if you equip the CX-38S barrel. This is a bonus as it frees up a slot that players otherwise normally use up to silence the weapon.

This allows Swagg to be able to use the Hollow Point rounds, and also Sleight of Hand as a Perk. It’s quite a clever addition as even though the bullets are way more powerful than standard ammo, there’s a very limited amount of them.

Sleight of Hand speeds this process up immensely and allows you to keep churning out Hollow Points at a good rate.

How to make Custom Blueprints with Cold War & Warzone’s Gunsmith Customs

With Gunsmith Customs, Cold War and Warzone lets you mix and match Blueprint attachments, so here’s how to make your own custom Blueprint.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Custom weapon blueprint

The Gunsmith Customs system is available in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, so here’s how to create your own custom Blueprints with this fan-favorite feature.

Gunsmith Customs and custom Blueprints were added to Modern Warfare and Warzone in April 2020, much to fans’ appreciation. You can also do it in Cold War, and with Cold War’s weapons in Warzone. With this feature, you can mix and match all of the Blueprint attachments for a weapon type, creating a brand new weapon Blueprint that’s unique to you.

For example, if you want to build a custom Krig 6, you can combine the barrel from the Confrontation Blueprint with the magazine from the Samurai’s Creed and the stock from the Go Getter. You can then save it as a custom Blueprint, name it, and then you can find it amongst all of your other purchased Blueprints.

How to use Custom Blueprint Mods in Black Ops Cold War

Arriving in Cold War’s mid-Season 2 update, players can now create and save several of their own custom Blueprints. This not only allows you to quickly access your crazy Blueprint combinations but also makes it easier to access your favorite loadouts without having to build them every time.

Making and saving these custom Blueprints is quite simple, so here’s how to do it:

  1. Launch Black Ops Cold War
  2. Select the ‘Weapons’ tab
  3. Choose your weapon
  4. Hover over the attachment you wish to equip
  5. Select the Gunsmith icon beside the attachment
  6. Choose the attachment style from your owned Blueprints
  7. Save and rename your custom Blueprint

Now, when creating a weapon class, you’ll be able to equip your custom Blueprint like you would any other. When you go to select your weapon, the custom Blueprint will be there alongside all of the other Blueprints you own.

If you wish to keep the weapon’s tracer fire or Mastercraft effects, you’ll need to equip that Blueprint as the base before customizing. By doing this, you can keep the blue tracer fire, but use the attachment styles from a completely different weapon, making a gun that’s entirely personalized to your style.

How to use Custom Blueprint Mods in Cold War Zombies

This also works in Black Ops Cold War Zombies. By building and saving a custom Blueprint, you can access it in rounds of Outbreak or regular Zombies such as Season 4’s Mauer Der Toten, so you can always have the attachments and look you desire.

For example, you spawn in with the M1911 for that classic Zombies experience. Then after you purchase a Gallo SA12 from the wall, you can apply either a regular Blueprint or Custom Mod to the weapon that applies all of your pre-selected attachments.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Load into a game of Cold War Zombies
  2. Either purchase your favorite weapon from the wall or get it from a Mystery Box
  3. Pause the game
  4. Select ‘Apply Blueprint’
  5. Navigate over to ‘Custom Mods’
  6. Choose the Custom Blueprint you wish to apply

This will give you not only the attachments of your choice but also the Mastery Camos you’ve grinded for.

How to use Custom Blueprint Mods in Warzone

Warzone save Custom Blueprint

Battle royale fans were disappointed that you couldn’t create Custom Blueprints for Cold War weapons in Warzone when the game first integrated. Raven Software has now added that function, so you can now have several Custom Blueprints at the ready when building your favorite loadouts.

Here’s how to build and use Custom Blueprint Mods in Warzone:

  1. Launch Call of Duty: Warzone
  2. Go to the ‘Weapons’ tab and press ‘Edit Loadout’
  3. Build your ideal weapon loadout
  4. Click ‘Save a Custom Mod’ at the bottom of the screen
  5. Rename and save your Custom Blueprint!

And to then access that Custom Blueprint:

  1. Click ‘Edit Loadout’
  2. Hover over the weapon you wish to use
  3. Select ‘Armory’ beside the weapon
  4. Choose either a regular Blueprint or your own Custom Blueprint

With Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5 arriving soon, there will be a ton more weapon Blueprints arriving in both the store and the new Battle Pass. So, you’ll get more and more weapon customization options as the seasons progress.

Warzone cheat provider CrazyAim taken down by Activision

Activision has taken aim at a cheater provider for Warzone as their site and discord have been shut down.

Warzone August 2 update patch notes

A popular Warzone cheat provider website has been taken down by Activision on August 4. The site was providing aim bot and other hacks for Warzone as a paid service.


The site, called CrazyAim.io, was providing a variety of cheats for Call of Duty players, with focus on Warzone hacks.

Their site now no longer exists, as it appears Activision has taken it down. Visiting their site sends a site error.

In addition, we’ve confirmed the site’s Discord server, where the users and owners would discuss the cheats and hacks, has also been shut down.

This is a small, but good step from Activision in the fight against the dramatic increase in hackers and cheaters in Warzone.

Some big content creators have been upset over the hacks and switched to Apex Legends instead.

It’s still not clear if Activision plans to launch a proper anti-cheat for Warzone.

The company’s executives have said in the past that they have “invested” a lot into fixing the hacking problem.

The last update from Raven on ban waves was in mid July, where they said 50,000 accounts were banned.
