JGOD discovers overpowered weapon perk in Warzone that breaks snipers

YouTuber JGOD has discovered a weapon perk in Warzone that allows snipers to have flawless aim for up to a minute at a time.

YouTuber JGOD has discovered a weapon perk for Warzone snipers that allows the player to have flawless aim for up to a minute.

Call of Duty Warzone is having quite the shaky first season post-Black Ops Cold War integration, with overpowered weapons at launch like the DMR and bugs like the stim glitch.

Now, newly added to the pack is a weapon perk that allows players to hold their breath while sniping for up to a full minute as compared to the usual 4.5 seconds. The perk is called “Presence of Mind,” and is only available on snipers and marksmen rifles from Modern Warfare.

Many players have dismissed the weapon perk category in Modern Warfare as a useless slot for Warzone, where they would instead opt for another weapon attachment. With the discovery of this “stealth buff,” players should now be using Presence of Mind when sniping to hit much easier headshots.

This is undoubtedly a bug that has gone undiscovered in the game, so for the next few weeks, we should expect more players to be running this weapon perk on the KAR98-K and the HDR.

Controller players will benefit greatly from this, as aim assist + no idle sway while holding breath will result in much easier to hit shots at longer distances.

Be warned, if you’re in a gunfight against a sniper, they may not be fighting with weapon sway due to the power of the Presence of Mind perk.

Many more easy headshots will be hit before a proper patch is rolled out to reduce the perk to its intended value, which JGOD noted used to be nine seconds.

We’ll update if Treyarch or Raven acknowledges this bugged weapon perk.

Operators fighting Kong in Warzone Pacific

Warzone players have discovered a clever healing trick that allows them to quickly regenerate their health and armor in the Operation Monarch event.

Warzone Pacific Season 3’s Godzilla vs Kong event brought a plethora of new content for players to enjoy, including the new Operation Monarch LTM, S.C.R.E.A.M. Device killstreak, as well as Godzilla, Kong, and Mechagodzilla Operator bundles.

This event grants you the opportunity to quickly level up weapons while earning free rewards, and players have found a useful trick that allows them to quickly fill up health and shields in Operation Monarch.

How to fill health and shields in Warzone’s Operation Monarch

Warzone scream device killstreak

You can battle Godzilla and Kong during the Warzone Operation Monarch event, and players have found that dealing damage to these monsters can instantly regenerate your health and shields.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Hop into a game of Warzone during Operation Monarch
  2. Find Godzilla or Kong
  3. Fire at them until your health and shields regenerate

This trick will help you out during tough times when your health and armor plating have been almost completely depleted. Reddit user ‘Similar-Arugula-7854’ showed this in action in the Warzone subreddit.

While this seems like a promising trick that will help when you’re overwhelmed in battle, it’s worth keeping in mind that Godzilla and Kong can both be dangerous, especially after entering the Titan Frenzy phase.

For that reason, we recommend keeping your distance and shooting at them with long-range weapons. You can also replenish health by picking up Monarch Intel from the dead bodies of your enemies.

FaZe Booya turns Warzone’s AMAX into deadly SMG perfect for Rebirth Island

Warzone pro FaZe Booya has revealed a CR-56 AMAX loadout that turns the Assault Rifle into a deadly SMG ideal for Rebirth Island.

Faze Booya with Warzone AMAX

Warzone pro Ean ‘FaZe Booya’ Chase has shown off his build for the CR-56 AMAX, which he claims turns the Assault Rifle into a close-range SMG perfect for matches on Rebirth Island.

CoD Warzone has no shortage of options when it comes to close-range weapons, from devastating Shotguns like the JAK-12, to blistering SMGs such as the Owen Gun or Welgun.

To compete on Caldera, you’ll likely have to run one of the meta options, but on the more forgiving Rebirth Island there’s far more room to experiment with weird and wonderful builds.

FaZe Clan member ‘Booya’ has shown off a unique loadout that turns the largely forgotten CR-56 AMAX from Modern Warfare into a solid SMG, ideal for Rebirth in Warzone Season 3.

CR-56 AMAX in Warzone

In his May 13 video, Booya outlines a loadout suggested to him by one of his viewers. It makes the AMAX perfect for an aggressive playstyle where players are quickly darting into fights, which suits Rebirth far more than Caldera.

The AMAX already has the damage needed to compete, but the FaZe member describes his build as “really good as a close-range and medium-range SMG,” as opposed to its normal guise as an all-round Assault Rifle.

Check out his complete loadout for the CR-56 AMAX SMG below:

FaZe Booya CR-56 AMAX “SMG” loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mag

Removing the Stock offers the player greater mobility and fasters ADS speeds, allowing them to aggressively push enemy players, while the Tac Laser aids hipfire accuracy, which is again ideal in Rebirth’s close-quarters fights.

The Merc Foregrip keeps some of the recoil in check, allowing the AMAX to hold its own in medium-range engagements as well. This pairs well with the Monolithic Suppressor, which offers a useful boost to the overall damage range.

The enemies come thick and fast on Rebirth Island, so FaZe Booya finishes the setup with 45 Round Mags so you don’t have to worry about reloading after each kill.

By following Booya’s loadout, the CR-56 completely transforms into the perfect Sniper support for Rebirth island. The Warzone pro recommends pairing it with the Kar98k for those situations where you need the extra range.

Best CR-56 AMAX loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

The CR-56 AMAX is a solid pick in Warzone, and here is how to make the best loadout with it to dominate in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

Published

CR-56 AMAX in Warzone

The CR-56 AMAX is a formidable Assault Rifle, so here are the right attachments, Perks, and equipment that you can use to make the best AMAX loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

The CR-56 AMAX Assault Rifle’s popularity declined when it was nerfed back in Season 2 Reloaded, but the new buffs and nerfs have brought the weapon back to the meta in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

It’s one of the best Assualt Rifles in Warzone thanks to its impressive damage and range and you can make it into an absolute powerhouse by equipping the right selection of attachments, Perks, and equipment.

Here’s the best CR-56 AMAX loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mag

We’ll start off our Warzone CR-56 AMAX by equipping the Monolithic Suppressor muzzle and XRK Zodiac S440 barrel to improve its effective damage range, making it ideal for medium-range combat.

The Commando Foregrip will give a boost to both aiming and recoil stability, at the cost of a little movement speed, and the VLK 3.0x Optic is a great optic choice thanks to its 3.0x magnification.

Finally, we’ll cap off the best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout with the 45 Round Mag to ensure that you have enough ammunition to eliminate multiple opponents in both Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Best Perks and Equipment to use with Warzone CR-56 AMAX class

E.O.D perk in Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stims

Enemies will often throw Grenades, Thermites, and other explosives your way in Caldera and Rebirth Island, so we recommend equipping the E.O.D Perk for its protection from explosive damage.

You can pick Overkill as your second Perk in order to pair the CR-56 AMAX with a close-range SMG like the Owen Gun. For your final Perk, you should go with Amped as it allows you to change to your secondary weapon almost instantly.

Equipment-wise, Throwing Knives are a solid option for quick eliminations in tight situations, while Stims give you a much-needed health and speed boost if you find yourself taking too much damage in battle.

How to unlock CR-56 AMAX in Warzone

The CR-56 AMAX is locked behind a challenge that requires you to score 3 gunbutt kills with an Assault Rifle in 10 different matches. This is particularly easy to do in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer game modes.

Alternatively, if you only play Warzone, you can also complete this challenge in the Plunder or Clash modes. Once the conditions have been met, this weapon will be added to your inventory.

Best CR-56 AMAX alternatives in Warzone

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout, then you should absolutely try out the XM4 as it’s the best Assault Rifle in Season 3 following Warzone’s May 4 update.

The Vanguard STG44 is another great choice because of its impressive damage, range, and bullet velocity.
