JGOD explains how to turn Warzone’s FR 5.56 into the ultimate M16 counter

Warzone YouTuber JGOD has revealed one simple trick that can make the FR 5.56 compete with the AUG and M16.

Warzone YouTuber JGOD has revealed one simple change that can make the usually ignored FR 5.56 compete with the M16 and AUG meta.

The FR 5.56 has long been considered one of Warzone’s weakest weapons. With its wild bullet spread and low time-to-kill, most players have written it off as not worth their time – according to’s data, the FR 5.56 has a pick ratio of 0.1%. However, YouTuber JGOD has discovered a simple trick to make this weapon counter Season 2’s burst meta.

The AUG, and now the M16, have been running the long-range meta in Warzone Season 2. There aren’t any other weapons that can beat their TTK at distance, at least until JGOD discovered this FR 5.56 trick.

Turning the FR 5.56 from a dud to one of the game’s best, you simply have to change the fire mode to single-shot. Warzone defaults this to the ‘B’ key on keyboards, so make sure you still have that bound. And for controllers players, you hit ‘left’ on the D-Pad.

JGOD explains how changing the fire mode fixes the biggest problems with the FR 5.56. While firing semi-auto, it becomes much more accurate with an easier-to-control recoil pattern. You’ll be able to down an enemy in a maximum of 7 shots, and with how fast you can spam the shots, its TTK up there with the best.

JGOD also said that what really sets it apart from the meta weapons is its bullet velocity, “particularly at range.” The weapon will almost feel hitscan at times, meaning you hardly need to lead shots and you can shoot enemies out of the air with ease.

JGOD’s semi-auto FR 5.56 loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FR 24.4″ Sniper
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 50 Round Mags

As long as you keep the FR 24.4″ Sniper barrel, you can really customize the weapon however you want. In solos and duos, you can take off the 50 Round Mags, and if you need more recoil control, you can opt for a Compensator Muzzle attachment instead. Just remember to switch the fire mode to semi-automatic.

JGOD said it’s unlikely that the FR 5.56 will take over the M16 and AUG as the meta as they’re just too easy to use, but the FR 5.56 is an extremely viable alternative. He calls it a “high skill” gun, but if you manage to land your shots, you’ll find great success even in the burst meta.

With Season 3 right around the corner, perhaps either the FR 5.56 or one of the new leaked weapons will become the new meta.

This handy AMAX bullet drop and lead guide helps you hit every shot in Warzone

A Warzone user has created a handy guide detailing how to perfectly account for bullet lead and drop when using the CR-56 AMAX.



A clever Warzone player has created an extremely useful guide for the CR-56 AMAX, detailing how to account for bullet lead and drop.

The CR-56 AMAX quickly climbed to the top of the pack in Warzone Season 3, and even though it received a small nerf, it’s still one of the most popular weapons in the game. However, it’s known for having high recoil and requiring practice to master.

To help players master the weapon, a clever user has created a guide sheet detailing exactly where you need to aim to hit players, at any distance, no matter if they’re Tactical Sprinting, running, or walking.

best cr-56 amax warzone loadout

Call of Duty is long past the hitscan days, and Modern Warfare’s engine has made bullet physics more realistic than ever. Every bullet is individually rendered, creating semi-realistic bullet travel time and drop.

This means that you’ll need to account for both bullet velocity and drop when fighting at range, which can take some time when using a new weapon. To help players hit every shot, Reddit user Yugobaas has created a cheat sheet explaining how to use the CR-56 AMAX perfectly at range.

Equipped with the best loadout for the AMAX, Yugobaas has detailed the weapon’s bullet velocity, ADS speed, and rate of fire. But best of all is the guide on where to aim your reticle to hit moving targets.

Ranging from 100-300 meters, they have created a visual aid detailing exactly where you should aim in relation to moving targets. You can see precisely how high you should aim for far-off targets and how much to lead by for enemies who are moving.

Other Reddit users loved the cheat sheet and have asked Yugobaas to create more of these guides. On their Instagram, tv.warzone, you can find similar sheets for all of Warzone’s snipers, but they now plan to create more for Assault Rifles and LMGs.

Best Modern Warfare MP5 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

Modern Warfare’s MP5 has made a strong comeback in Warzone Season 3, so here are the best attachments and perks to make it godly.



Modern Warfare MP5 COD Warzone

Modern Warfare’s MP5 SMG has long been a popular choice in Call of Duty: Warzone, so here are the best attachments and perks to maximize its slaying potential in Season 3.

Before Warzone integrated with Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare’s MP5 was top of the pack, being the most used weapon for a considerable amount of time. The meta has changed significantly since then with multiple top dogs now running wild: the Krig, AMAX, LC10, Streetsweeper, and more.

If you’re looking for a well-balanced and reliable SMG, the Modern Warfare MP5 is your best companion for the task.

Here are the best attachments and perks to run with it in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3.

Best Modern Warfare MP5 loadout for CoD: Warzone

Modern Warfare MP5 in Warzone
  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible

Our build has an emphasis on speed and utility. You’ll be able to take down enemies at medium range and close in the gaps quickly with great mobility and accuracy.

The Monolithic Integral Suppressor is the best choice for Modern Warfare’s MP5 as it has all the traits of the standard Monolithic Suppressor, but uses both the muzzle and barrel slots. You’ll stay off the radar while firing, and also receive additional bullet velocity.

As the MP5 is a ‘pocket’ weapon, you want it to be as mobile as possible. To increase its speed, you should add the 5mW Laser and FTAC Collapsible stock. The laser will give you a sprint-to-fire speed boost, and vastly improve your hip-fire accuracy and the stock will allow you to aim down sights quicker and move faster. With these attachments combined, you can be quick and unpredictable in close-range fights.

For extra recoil control and even more hip-fire accuracy, the Merc Foregrip is an excellent choice. You’ll not only be able to hit more accurate shots on enemies at medium distance, but you’ll be able to land much more hip-fire shots at point-blank.

And finally, to make sure you can down and finish several targets in one fight, the 45 Round Mags will be a necessary addition.

Best perks for Modern Warfare MP5 in Warzone

Warzone overkill perk
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

When choosing which perks to run with the MP5 in Warzone, you want those which will benefit you in close-range engagements. When fighting up close, enemies will often chuck a bombardment of explosives your way to get the upper hand. With E.O.D equipped, you’ll be able to tank a plethora of grenades and Semtex, allowing you to stay in the fight.

As the MP5 is most effective as a secondary, you’ll want to take Overkill from your first Loadout Drop. This will allow you to take two primary weapons such as a HDR, then you can get Ghost from your next Loadout to be concealed from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

To be able to quickly change guns mid-fight, Amped will almost eliminate this weapon swap delay. Whether your primary weapon is out of ammo or you get ambushed at close-range, Amped will be vital to your survival.

Best Oden loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

The Oden deals significant damage at range, so here are the attachments and perks to make the best Warzone Oden loadout for Season 3.



Best Warzone Oden Loadout

With a low fire rate but serious damage, the Oden is a solid choice of weapon to use in Warzone Season 3. Here are the attachments and perks to maximize its potential and make the best Warzone Oden loadout.

As Warzone has developed, fights are often decided at range. Long-range guns such as the AUG, Kar98k, and AMAX have shot up in popularity, and if built right, the Oden can contend with any of these weapons. Modern Warfare’s Assault Rifles are usually fast firing with low recoil. Still, the Oden prioritizes damage per bullet over fire rate, allowing it to blast away enemies’ armor at any range.

We’ve put together the attachments and perks you should run to dominate Verdansk ’84 with the best Warzone Oden loadout.

Best Warzone Oden loadout

Best Warzone Oden loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Colossus Suppressor
  • Barrel: Oden Factory 730mm
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 30 Round Mags

The Oden dominates in the long lines of sight that Warzone offers. With a slow fire rate but a powerful punch, the Oden is devastating in the hands of an accurate player. We’ve built this Oden to maximize its accuracy and damage at range, making it a great choice for any player.

To increase the weapon’s effective damage range and recoil control, we’ve added the Colossus Suppressor. While large and heavy, this silencer improves the Oden’s recoil control, bullet velocity, and damage range. For a bonus, you’ll be hidden from the minimap when firing.


To further improve its damage range, the Oden Factory 730mm barrel is a perfect choice. Your damage over range will be improved further, but you won’t be slowed down as much as if you use the 810mm option. It’s worth using the popular Commando Foregrip for extra recoil control, too.

For optics, there’s no better scope than the VLK 3.0x Optic. This magnified scope offers great visibility at all ranges, which will make aiming for the head and chest much easier when using the Oden at a distance. And finally, to make sure you can drop several enemies before reloading, the 30 Round Mags will be necessary.

Best perks for Warzone Oden class

best perks Warzone Oden class

Perk 1 – Double Time

The Oden is one of the heaviest Assault Rifles Warzone has to offer, so if you want some extra mobility while navigating the map, Double Time is the perk for you. You’ll be able to Tactical Sprint for longer and crouch walks faster to help strafe in engagements.

Perk 2 – Overkill/Ghost

As this Oden is built for long-range, it’s worth running an SMG or Shotgun for fighting up close, and Overkill will allow you to carry two primary weapons.

Once you have your guns, you should try to get Ghost from your next loadout to be hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Perk 3 – Amped

And finally, with the weight of the Oden, weapon swapping will be agonizingly slow, so Amped will remove that delay, allowing you to switch guns instantly.


How to unlock the Oden

Players looking to make the best Warzone Oden loadout will first need to unlock this Assault Rifle. Interested individuals can unlock this weapon by reaching level 28 in either the Call of Duty battle royale or Modern Warfare, so a couple of hours of playing should have you adding this weapon to your inventory without any trouble.
