JGOD reveals Warzone Season 3’s long-range meta weapons

Following nerfs to the AUG and M16, Warzone YouTuber JGOD has revealed and broken the long-range meta weapons for Season 3.



JGOD Season 3 Warzone long range meta

Warzone YouTuber JGOD, known for his in-depth weapon testing, has revealed the meta weapons for fighting long-range in Season 3’s Verdansk ’84.

The AUG, M16, and FFAR 1 dominated Warzone Season 2, making almost every other weapon obsolete. Luckily, we’re now into Season 3, and the meta has changed.

Raven Software massively reworked a ton of Black Ops Cold War weapons, taking the previous kings from their thrones and making room for a new meta. YouTuber JGOD, well known in the Warzone community for testing weapons and updates, has revealed the meta long-range weapons for Season 3.

Warzone AMAX

Following all of the weapon buffs and nerfs going into Season 3, players can use much more weapons for their long-range fights.

JGOD explained how the CR-56 AMAX is currently the best weapon in the game. Although it can be quite tough to use and control its recoil, JGOD explains how it excels in every category. According to his data, at range, it has the highest TTK of any weapon, with headshots included.

After the AMAX, JGOD singled out the:

  • RAM-7
  • M4A1
  • FARA 83
  • Bruen Mk9
  • Grau 5.56
  • Krig 6
  • Stoner 63

The RAM-7 comes in after the AMAX in JGOD’s long-range meta weapons for Warzone Season 3. It’s an excellent choice for a sniper support weapon, as it has incredible bullet velocity. Still, JGODOD doesn’t believe many players are skilled enough to use it exclusively for long-range fighting.

For weapons that are easy to use in the Warzone Season 3 long-range meta, he recommends the M4A1, Bruen Mk9, and Grau. The M4A1 is “still very good,” but you’ll lose long-range fights to the AMAX. For the Grau, he explained that “If you struggle with the AMAX, or struggle with recoil control in general, the Grau is probably going to be your number one option.”

The FARA 83 has almost no visible recoil when using the SUSAT Multizoom optic, and he explained how while the Stoner 63 has a great TTK, it’s reliant on you landing a headshot to get that fast kill.

The Krig 6 is “somewhere between a Grau and AMAX,” so using it depends on your skill. When, or if, the AMAX gets nerfed, JGOD said he could see this weapon getting used more. With its high time to kill and relatively low recoil, the Krig could certainly become the long-range AR meta once the AMAX is nerfed.

It sounds likely that the AMAX will be nerfed in the future, as Raven Software said in the patch notes that “no king rules forever.”

We have our own loadouts for most of these weapons that make up the current long-range meta for Warzone, which you can check out in our top 10 loadouts for Season 3.

Call of Duty has released a new Arthur Kingsley Operator for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War to give players a taste of Vanguard before its release.

Players can now get a brand new operator called Arthur Kingsley for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, who is straight out of Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War are now in Season 5 Reloaded, giving players an abundance of Operators to choose from.

With speculation around the Season 6 Operator floating around after the recent Season 5 outro cinematic, there is an Arthur Kingsley Operator players can get their hands on before that.

Arthur Kingsley Operator in Call of Duty: Vanguard

Call of Duty: Vanguard will be released on November 5. Now that players have finally had a chance to experience some gameplay with the Open Beta that was recently held, excitement is building.

As we edge closer to release, players are starting to question how Vanguard will integrate into Warzone and how it will carry on the seasonal story Black Ops Cold War has created throughout its integration with the battle royale.

The developers have decided to offer players a new Operator from Vanguard to obtain in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, giving players a taste for what’s to come.

Operator Arthur Kingsley in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War

In order to get Arthur Kingsley in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, players must have Call of Duty: Vanguard pre-ordered.

The pre-order must be digital, so don’t be surprised if you have already pre-ordered a physical copy but are not eligible for the Operator.

Here are the further details on the Arthur Kingsley Operator from the Call of Duty blog:

“The incredible value of Call of Duty: Vanguard pre-order rewards just got more legendary.

Starting today, those who digitally pre-order any edition of Call of Duty: Vanguard, or who have already pre-ordered the game already, will be able to play as Arthur Kingsley in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.*

It’s one of two rewards you get immediately for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone from pre-ordering Vanguard before its November 5th release, alongside the “Night Raid” Mastercraft submachine gun.”

So, there you have it, that’s how you can get the new Arthur Kingsley Operator in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.

Warzone players passionately call for quitting penalty to be added

Call of Duty: Warzone players are fed up with teammates leaving games and are suggesting the developers introduce a penalty for leaving.



Warzone quitting penalty

Call of Duty: Warzone players have called upon the developers to introduce a quitting penalty for duos, trios, and squads as players are fed up with having teammates leave before the game is over.

Although Warzone has had a lot of success since the Season 5 Reloaded update, especially since the Iron Trials ’84 mode was introduced, recently, players have been unhappy with the state of the game.

Since the September 23 update, players have been noticing performance issues that have been running the experience. As well as these issues, players are now calling for developers to fix another, which involves introducing a leavers penalty.

Warzone player shooting weapon while dropping into Verdansk 84

Warzone players aren’t the first battle royale community to ask the developers to introduce a leavers penalty, as Apex Legends now has a similar system for ranked and Arenas, incentivizing players to stay in games longer.

This is the issue Reddit user Binarycold has been having in Warzone, as they put up a post explaining what it’s like to play “Warzone with strangers.”

In the post, the player seems to be fed with random teammates leaving games before it’s even done, stating that every game mode may as well be called solos or solos pending “since no one can ever stay in a full game.”

The user then states that the developers should “implement some penalty for quitting out, this is ridiculous!” Clearly, this player isn’t the only one who feels this way, as others in the comments also share a similar opinion:

“I’d love to see a deserter stat. Only applies on control initiated drops, not poor connection. I’d like people to be notified if the team they left won it too, or came second and might have won if the awol player would have stayed.

People have no tenacity any more. If they have a rough landing, they bolt. Where’s the grit? Softies”

It’s very frustrating when teammates leave the game when you could potentially recover from a bad landing or win a game despite being disadvantaged by a teammate dying.

We’re sure many teammates have missed out on great games and even victories as they have left way too early and would undoubtedly appreciate the developers introducing a leavers penalty to discourage this from happening.

With Warzone integrating with Vanguard in the future, there is always a possibility for the addition of a quitting penalty to be one of the changes made to the Call of Duty battle royale.
