Raven Software has made several significant changes to Cold War’s weapons in the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update. The YouTuber and battle royale statistician JGOD has explained why you should be using the overhauled Suppressor.
Warzone’s Season 3 Reloaded update gave significant buffs to Cold War’s Sniper Rifles and made some welcome changes to SMGs. They also gave a significant tuning pass to the attachments for these weapons, giving Sniper Rifles a Tac Laser equivalent and buffing the standard Suppressor attachment.
The GRU/ Agency Silencer, modeled after Modern Warfare’s Monolithic Suppressor, has long been the meta for all Cold War weapons in Warzone. However, Raven Software has given the standard Suppressor some powerful new stats, and JGOD has explained why and when you should use it.
The new Suppressor now increases bullet velocity, ADS (aim down sight) speed, and sprint to fire speed. Both Suppressors offer attractive buffs to your weapons, so YouTuber JGOD has compared the two Suppressors and explained which situations you should use each of them in.
The GRU/ Agency Suppressor will still give roughly a 25% boost to bullet velocity, making it the best option for fighting long-range.
“If you’re using a long-range option only, like the Krig for long-range, everything 40 meters plus, you’re going to want to use the GRU just so you get the maximum bullet velocity,” JGOD explained. “Everything’s going to feel closer to hitscan.”
JGOD explained how you’re going to use the new Suppressor attachment for SMGs and Sniper support weapons which you’ll use to fight at close-medium range. You’ll get around a 15% increase to bullet velocity, which is still significantly better than without, but it will also hurt the weapons range by about 15%.
He explained that if you want to build your Assault Rifles for close range, you should use the new Suppressor, and “If we go to an SMG, a lot of people have been asking about the PPSH build, you’re going to go with the Sound Suppressor.”
JGOD has also updated his loadout ranking sheet to include the new Suppressor, so you know exactly which loadouts you should use it for.

JGOD reveals fastest “TTK” Welgun loadout that beats the MP40
JGOD has revealed his best class setup for the Warzone Welgun when it comes to TTK, claiming it even outperforms the MP40.
Warzone Pacific has a lot of stellar options for close-quarters combat, however, JGOD claims this Welgun loadout is built for a fast TTK, edging it over the MP40 in the meta.
With the mid-season update for Warzone Pacific, players were gifted a brand new SMG, the Welgun. Since its introduction, the Welgun has been a great option for players looking to use a long-range SMG.
Having said that, there are many ways players can change the Welgun, and JGOD has revealed the loadout you’ll need to make the Welgun an even more efficient TTK SMG than the MP40.
According to JGOD’s latest video, the Welgun has the potential to beat the MP40 in terms of TTK with the correct attachments. This is pretty impressive, especially as the MP40 has been one of the best SMGs in the game for a while.
One thing that JGOD makes clear is that you will need to hit your chest, neck, and headshots in order to get the most out of the Welgun.
Here’s JGOD’s best TTK loadout for the Warzone Welgun.
JGOD’s Welgun loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: 120mm Gawain Short
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: Gawain Skeletal
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 9mm 64 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Incendiary
- Rear Grip: Taped Grip
- Perk 1: Frenzy
- Perk 2: Quick
First off, JGOD has opted for the Recoil Booster to increase the weapons fire rate and overall TTK in close combat. Then we have the 120mm Gawain Short barrel which JGOD recommends highly for those who want to use the weapon in tight spaces.
The Slate Reflector, M1941 Hand Stop, and Taped Grip will all help the weapon’s recoil, allowing you to control the massive 9mm 64 Round Mags you will be unloading onto enemies, as well as balancing the negative initial firing recoil you’ll get with the Gawain Skeletal stock.
The Incendiary ammo type will keep enemies burning after you lose their sight, which is so useful in close combat situations, especially as the negative bullet velocity won’t do much to stop you in close quarters.
Lastly, we have Frenzy for the first Perk and Quick for the second. Frenzy will keep your health at the max while taking down enemies, which combines nicely with Quick which will allow you to move fast and keep the enemy second-guessing your location.
Well there you have it, that’s JGOD’s best Welgun loadout for a faster TTK than the MP40. If you’re looking for a long-range LMG, check out our best Type 11 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1.

How to fix Warzone crashing & freezing issues on Xbox
Warzone has suffered a number of issues since the Pacific update on Xbox, so here’s how to stop it from crashing and freezing.
Xbox players have been suffering from game-breaking crashing and freezing errors since Warzone’s Pacific update, but one simple solution can fix many of the issues.
Warzone Pacific Season 1 brought many changes the community was looking for, adding a brand-new map, a working anti-cheat, and removing Stopping Power once and for all. However, it’s also brought some of the worst glitches Warzone has ever seen, particularly on Xbox.
Luckily, there’s a simple solution that should lessen the amount of freezing and crashing issues you’re experiencing.
How to stop Warzone crashing & freezing on Xbox
To stop Warzone from crashing and freezing, don’t hit the Xbox home button while the Warzone application is open.
We recommend creating an Xbox Party before launching Warzone and then using Warzone’s Social tab to invite your friends to games.
This solution comes directly from Raven Software’s Trello board, where they acknowledged that “Players are reporting an issue where pressing the Xbox home button twice while in-game may cause instability.”
Raven said that the issue is caused by players hitting the Xbox home button twice, but many players have reported that issues crop up by pressing it once. So we recommend steering clear of the Xbox button and not pressing it at all.
Whether this will fix the issue where players can’t launch the game at all remains to be seen, but it should help out players who suffer from freezing and crashing while playing.
Raven Software has confirmed they’re investigating a number of Xbox Warzone glitches such as pressing the Xbox button, performance issues, and Xbox players’ Rebirth Island wins not tracking.
The next major Warzone update will be Season 2 in February, so hopefully, this update brings many much-needed fixes.

Warzone players beg Raven to add custom controller binding
Warzone players are calling on Raven Software to add options that allow them to fully customize their controller binds.
Frustrated with having to use Warzone’s preset controller options, players are desperate for Raven Software to add custom controller binding options.
With forced crossplay and repeated slide canceling ruining their controllers, Warzone console players are desperate for Raven Software to add custom controller binding options that allow them to configure their controls exactly how they’d like.
Players with unofficial controllers or the Xbox Elite controllers can fully customize every button. This lets them tailor their Warzone controls to their preference, but those who have first-party controllers are stuck with what Raven Software offers them.
Asking Raven Software, “where the hell is custom controller binding?” Reddit user TimewornTinman explained how they want to completely swap around their controls to keep their thumb on the right stick as much as possible. But, Warzone’s pre-set controls don’t allow them to get it exactly how they would like.
While many players suggested they purchase a third-party controller or buy a back button attachment, the issues would be fixed by giving players full access to their button layouts. One player called it a “basic feature” that’s been “ignored.”
PlayStation does give the option to change button binds through the Accessibility menus, allowing each button to be swapped for another. However, this applies the new binds across every aspect of your PlayStation experience, which can make it extremely difficult to navigate menus and switch to other games.
Console Warzone players have also been desperate for an FOV slider, which may arrive with the PS5 and Xbox Series update that’s confirmed to be in development. Perhaps Raven will give players more controller options when this update eventually arrives.
