Having the right perks in your Warzone loadouts can be the difference between winning and losing, and Warzone stats master JGOD has revealed what the meta perks are for Warzone Season 3.
Perks have been a huge aspect of Call of Duty through the years, and this is definitely the case for the world of Warzone, as the various perks the game offers can give players a huge advantage when playing.
However, some perks are much more effective for players in the Call of Duty battle royale, which has lead YouTuber JGOD to dive into numbers and explain which meta perks the community should be using in Warzone Season 3.
JGOD’s Warzone Season 3 meta perks
Perk 1 – Double Time or E.O.D.
When it comes to your first perk slot, JGOD explains that you will find the most success using either Double Time or E.O.D.
Double Time will help give you more tactical sprint time, which can help with slide canceling and not being caught out in the open because you ran out of tactical sprint.
E.O.D. is still a solid choice, according to JGOD, for the first perk slot, thanks to it negating a decent portion of enemy explosive damage you may suffer, even though recent changes allow for a semtex stick to automatically down you even when you are using E.O.D.
JGOD also explained that Cold-Blooded is not really worth players using, as it does not stop you from showing up on Heartbeat Sensors, contrary to what some believe, and that it is a perk with a low Kill to death ratio among players using it in Warzone.
Perk 2 – Restock/Overkill/High Alert/Ghost
Restock and Overkill were the first second slot perks that JGOD went over, and he explains that Restock could be very powerful for players, as it will allow them to get more stun and semtex grenades which can easily turn the tide of a battle.
Overkill is more suitable for trios or quads. Having multiple guns with extended magazines is more needed than solos or duos, where you can get away with using a floor loot weapon that likely has a smaller magazine size.

High Alert can be a handy second slot perk, as it provides players with an indication of where an enemy outside of their view is shooting them from, but JGOD explains this only works if the enemy is 100 meters or less from you.
Finally, Ghost is always a good choice for players, as it will stop you from showing up on the map when multiple UAVs are being used and keeps you from being detected on Heartbeat Sensors instead of Cold-Blooded.
Perk 3 – Amped/Spotter/Tracker
The third perk slot for players in Warzone Season 3 will be the most useful if they run Amped, Spotter, or Tracker.
Amped will increase your weapon swap speed, which is very useful when using a secondary weapon like an LMG or sniper that may have a frustrating delay when trying to switch weapons.
Spotter is a great choice, JGOD explains, when it comes to attacking teams in buildings, as it allows you to see enemy equipment like claymores and mines through walls and avoid entering areas where you will be hit with an explosive welcome.
JGOD suggests that Tracker is probably the most useful for solos, as the footsteps it allows you to see on the ground can get confusing when multiple enemies are making them, but can help when tracking a single-player down into a building.
Warzone Perks with highest K/D
The Warzone stats master went on to show which perks have the highest kill to death ratios, suggesting that the players who choose these perks are doing the best and thus are ones players should probably gravitate towards when playing. You can find the top perk for each slot based on K/D below:
- Perk 1/E.O.D. – 1.08 K/D
- Perk 2/Restock – 1.31 K/D
- Perk 3/Amped – 1.12 K/D
Players who switch up their Warzone Season 3 meta perks to include the one above and the other suggestions that JGOD recently explained will undoubtedly see an increase in their success the next time they are on Verdansk ’84 or Rebirth Island.

Warzone Mobile Broadcast Stations: Locations & everything we know
One of the most interesting additions for Warzone Season 5 is Mobile Broadcast Stations. Here’s their locations and everything else we know.
Warzone Season 5 is finally upon us, and it’s come with a whole host of tweaks and changes. One thing players will have noticed is Warzone Mobile Broadcast Stations popping up around Verdansk. But what are they, and where can you find them?
As is the case with every update, players are eager to dive back into Warzone Season 5 and check out the latest batch of changes. From new weapons such as The Cane to stylish skins to chase after, such as Kyube Kitsune, there’s plenty to play for and unlock this time around.
One of the changes, however, is causing a mysterious broadcast to be played around Verdansk. The patch notes for Warzone Season 5 noted that Mobile Broadcast Stations would be coming to the game as a new point of interest for players to fight over. Here’s everything we know about the Mobile Broadcast Stations that are now ready for players to activate.
What are Mobile Broadcast Stations in Warzone Season 5?
These mysterious little POIs had begun spawning around the map since the launch of Season 5 and have been dormant until September 21, 2021, when Raven Software activated them. Players can now travel to these vehicles to complete challenges and earn various rewards.
Raven Software has kept their use relatively vague up until now, urging players to “keep their head” when they approach one and “tune out” the broadcast each one emits.
To look at, they are essentially large trucks with telegraph poles sticking out the top of them. If you stumble across an active one, you will be greeted by an alarm sound and see that the antenna is raised further into the air.
All you need to do is walk up to one and press a button to activate it.
Warzone Mobile Broadcast Stations locations
You can find all of the Warzone Mobile Broadcast Stations locations on the map below:
- Northwest of the Military Base
- South of the Port
- North of the Airport
- West of the Train Station
- Between the Boneyard and Superstore
- East of the Salt Mine
- At the Farmland
- At the Hills
- Southwest of the TV Station
That’s all we know about the Warzone Mobile Broadcast Stations right now. We’ll keep you updated as The Warzone and Cold War The Numbers event continues.

Best MG 82 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 5
The MG 82 can be mighty in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded, especially with the right attachments and perks. Here’s our best Warzone MG 82 loadout.
Warzone’s MG 82 LMG boasts the highest fire rate of its category, making it a powerful choice for your Season 5 Reloaded loadout. Here are the attachments and perks to make the best Warzone MG 82 loadout and maximize its potential.
Fans of the M13 are likely to enjoy the MG 82 as it boasts an insanely high fire rate, having the highest in its class. While it only does moderate damage, its fire rate, accuracy, and magazine size more than make up for it.
With this in mind, here are the attachments and perks you should use to make the best Warzone MG 82 loadout.
- Best Warzone MG 82 Loadout
- Best Warzone MG 82 loadout attachments
- Best perks to use with MG 82 class
- Most recent MG 82 buffs and nerfs in Warzone

Best Warzone MG 82 loadout
Best Warzone MG 82 loadout attachments
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 16.4″ Task Force
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition: 125 Rnd Mags
There’s no better choice than the Agency Suppressor for the muzzle attachment of the best Warzone MG 82 loadout. Not only does it hide your shots from the minimap, but it also increases bullet velocity, damage range, and recoil control of the best Warzone MG 82 loadout.

The 16.4″ Task Force barrel is ideal for the best Warzone MG 82 loadout to complement this silencer. This barrel improves every aspect of the weapon’s long-range potential, giving a massive boost to recoil control, bullet velocity, and damage range.
For optics, the Axial Arms 3x is the perfect magnification for this LMG. You’ll have no issue taking out targets at a distance, but it isn’t so zoomed in that you’ll lose targets at closer distances. And to further help keep your shot on target, you should use the Field Agent Grip.
And for ammunition, the 125 Rnd Mags give you a little more bang for your buck without affecting your ADS speed. If you prefer to prioritize reload time over ADS speed, you should opt for the 125 Rnd Speed Mag instead.
Best perks to use with MG 82 class
- Perk 1: Double Time
- Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
As the MG 82 is a heavy LMG, you’ll move significantly slower than you would with an Assault Rifle. Double Time will increase your Tactical Sprint duration, allowing you to move around the map much faster.
As it’s much slower, the MG 82 won’t be as effective in close-range situations. Overkill will allow you to take a custom SMG along with the LMG straightaway, making you lethal at all ranges. Then, you should prioritize getting the Ghost perk from another loadout drop to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.
And finally, Amped will allow you to swap between your two weapons almost instantly.
Most recent MG 82 buffs and nerfs in Warzone
It has been a bit since Raven Software last made any significant changes to the MG 82 LMG in the Call of Duty battle royale. We will update this section with the latest buffs or nerfs when they are applied to the weapon.
How to unlock the MG 82
The MG 82 is free to unlock for all players, as it came as part of Warzone and Cold War Season 4’s free Battle Pass. You needed to hit Tier 15, and then you can equip and rank up this fast-firing LMG to make the best Warzone MG 82 loadout.
Don’t worry if you don’t manage to get there during Season 4, as there is still a way you can get this weapon for free.
Players now need to complete one of two unlock challenges to acquire this LMG, which you can find below:
- Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer/Warzone: Using LMGs, kill 3 or more enemies without reloading in 15 different completed matches
- Black Ops Cold War Zombies: Using LMGs, kill 250 enemies that are stunned by your Tesla Storm
