Verdansk Superstore in Warzone

A new teaser discovered in Verdansk’s Superstore has made Warzone’s 1980s overhaul all the more likely for Season 3.

Most battle royale games, such as Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends have several maps that change over time. This has led to much speculation that Warzone would be receiving another map down the line. We received Rebirth Island with Cold War’s integration, but players are desperate for changes to the 150 player battleground.

It was first rumored that Warzone would head to Urzikstan, the fictional setting for much of Modern Warfare, then Cold War’s Ural Mountains became the most likely candidate. We never received the Urzikstan map, and a leak has since revealed that the Ural Mountains was designed for a scrapped ‘Blackout 2.0.’

Now, however, we understand that Warzone’s Verdansk will be going back in time to a 1980s setting. As Cold War (set in the 80s) and Modern Warfare share a universe, a 1980s Verdansk is the perfect way to continue and expand on the developing story.

As noticed by Reddit user PuppyFTW, a new teaser for Season 3 has arrived in Superstore. Inside Superstore, a poster for the 1980s Moscow Summer Olympics has been found. This new poster alongside the leaked commercial for 1980s Verdansk makes Warzone’s 1980s overhaul all the more likely.

The United States led a boycott against these games in protest of the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, and many countries joined in. With Russia’s invasion of Urzikstan being crucial to Modern Warfare’s plot, this real-life event could be used as inspiration for Warzone’s developing storyline.

With a poster from the 1980s remaining in Superstore until the present day, this could also be a hint that this fan-favorite location will remain after the overhaul.

Zombies have nearly overrun present-day Verdansk and a leaked upcoming game mode has revealed that it’s likely to end with Verdansk being nuked. We’ll just have to wait and see how this supposed nuke event will bring Verdansk back to the 80s.

It’s likely that more teasers for the highly anticipated Season 3 will continue to pop up around Verdansk and Cold War’s multiplayer.

Modern Warfare Sniper Attachment Black Ops Cold War Warzone

Raven Software teased in the latest set of patch notes for Warzone that an equivalent to a popular Modern Warfare sniper attachment could be coming to Black Ops Cold War snipers in the Call of Duty battle royale.

May 7, 2021, was an exciting day for Warzone, as Raven Software applied the latest update to the game that made a significant amount of changes.

The Warzone developers also took the time to tease some upcoming changes to Modern Warfare weapons and the mysterious arrival of a Black Ops Cold War version of a fan-favorite Modern Warfare sniper attachment.

This tease of a Black Ops Cold War version of an “immensely popular” Modern Warfare sniper attachment came under the changes for Combat Recon barrels for Black Ops Cold War snipers in the May 7, 2021, Warzone patch notes.

“As we continue assess the place of Cold War snipers within Warzone, we realize there is much work to be done. In addition to improving the overall efficacy of these weapons and attachments, we will also be taking a close look at their optics,” said Raven Software.

“This includes addressing attachment pros where there are few, if any, use cases,” Raven Software continued. “In specific… we may see a Cold War equivalent to an immensely popular Modern Warfare sniper attachment very soon.”

It remains to be seen what Modern Warfare sniper attachment Raven Software is teasing could potentially come to Black Ops Cold War snipers.

The developer made a specific reference to the optics of the Cold War snipers, so perhaps an equivalent of a Modern Warfare optic for the long-range weapons could be coming to the Black Ops ones.

Still, there is also a possibility that it could be a Cold War version of the popular Modern Warfare tac laser attachment.

We will update this article with any new information regarding what this possible mysterious Cold War version of a popular Modern Warfare sniper attachment could when new information is made available.

Best M16 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

The M16 Assault Rifle definitely packs a punch, and with these attachments and perks, you will have the best Warzone M16 loadout.

Best Warzone M16 loadout

The M16 Assault Rifle has become a popular pick in CoD: Warzone and these attachments and perks will make the best Warzone M16 loadout for Season 3.

The M16 has been used to great effect in Cold War multiplayer, and while Modern Warfare weapons like the Grau 5.56 or the Kilo 141 have dominated the meta in the past, the burst rifle has become a fan-favorite for players to wield.

With its ability to deal huge damage at far distances, the M16 is undeniably a viable weapon for medium and long-range battles.

Here are the attachments and perks to make the best Warzone M16 loadout.

Best Warzone M16 loadout

Best Warzone M16 Loadout

Best Warzone M16 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Silencer
  • Barrel: 15.9″ Strike Team
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd mag

This M16 is best used at long range for its potential to down a fully armored opponent in only a couple of bursts. Pair this weapon with a close-range choice such as Warzone’s MAC-10 or FFAR, and you’ll find yourself a force to be reckoned with in Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

For the muzzle, the Agency Silencer is the go-to for Cold War weapons, as it not only suppresses the sound of your bullets but actually increases the M16’s damage range.

When it comes to the barrel for the best Warzone M16 loadout, the 15.9″ Strike Team is the way to go as it increases the fire rate, meaning you can fire off bursts quicker while also increasing damage. Using this in conjunction with the Field Agent Grip will help you hit long-range shots easier, as it helps control the recoil in between bursts.

The Axial Arms 3x scope is perfect for the M16. This unobtrusive sight provides great magnification for hitting faraway targets and isn’t so zoomed that you’ll lose targets at closer range. Additionally, running the 45 Rnd mag will give you more bullets to use during fights.

Best perks for M16 Warzone loadout class

best perks Warzone M16 loadout class

Perk 1 – E.O.D.

E.O.D is the perfect accompaniment for Warzone’s M16, as you’ll be able to survive a barrage of explosive damage.

Perk 2 – Overkill/Ghost

For our second perk in the best Warzone M16 loadout class, we recommend starting a loadout with Overkill and then using a second Loadout Drop to switch to a loadout with Ghost equipped.

This will give you two of your favorite weapons, with the bonus of being hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Perk 3 – Amped

And finally, Amped will allow you to switch weapons faster and reload launchers faster. This is great for quickly pushing enemies in close-range situations.

How to Unlock M16 in Warzone

How to unlock the M16

Unlocking the M16 is an easy task in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, only requiring the player to hit Level 10.

Hop into a few games of either Warzone or Cold War, and you’ll soon unlock this beast of a weapon without any trouble.

Best alternatives

If you fancy using a weapon other than the M16, there are some solid choices you can take advantage of. Although the AUG has had its recoil nerfed, it’s still one of the best weapons in the game if you can control it. And if automatic weapons are more your style, you can’t go wrong with the Stoner 63.

It’s also worth trying out Warzone’s new ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle for some significant long-range damage.

Try out the M16 with these attachments and perks, and you’ll be using the best Warzone M16 loadout to destroy all of the enemies you come across in the Call of Duty battle royale.

If you’re looking to refresh your loadouts for Warzone Season 3, you can check out our guides on some of the weapons dominating the meta so far.

The Minigun makes an unexpected return in Warzone Season 3

Following the release of the most recent update for Warzone, the Minigun made an unexpected return in Season 3 of the Call of Duty battle royale.

Warzone Minigun Season 3

The May 7, 2021 update for Warzone made some major changes to the Call of Duty battle royale, but it looks as though an unintended change regarding the Minigun made its way through into Season 3.

The Minigun was once a rare weapon that players could acquire in Warzone and mow down multiple enemies thanks to its high fire and large ammo count rate. However, the Minigun was eventually removed from the game, and players could no longer acquire the powerful weapon.

The absence of the Minigun in Warzone was unexpectedly ended on May 7, 2021, when Raven Software applied the most recent update for the Call of Duty battle royale, as players began to report that they were getting the Minigun from loot boxes on Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

Following the application of the May 7 update for Warzone, members of the community began to discuss how they were now able to find the MInigun in supply boxes when playing. It was at first unclear if this was an intended decision by Raven Software or if it something unintended that resulted from the most recent Warzone update.

Raven Software soon updated their official Trello board for issues that they are investigating with the game and stated they were investigating the Minigun spawning from supply boxes on Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

This confirmed that the Minigun was not supposed to make a return in Season 3.

The Warzone developer went on to post an announcement on its Twitter account that it had applied a playlist update to the Call of Duty battle royale that should prevent the Minigun from spawning in supply boxes but asked players to let them know if the Minigun return issue was still persisting following the playlist update.

While the return of the Minigun in Warzone Season 3 was not supposed to happen, there are sure to be some players who took advantage and were able to have some fun with the powerful weapon before Raven Software pushed the playlist update to stop the Minigun from spawning.

Unfortunately for these players, it looks as though the unexpected return of the Minigun in Warzone Season 3 was a short-lived experience for the community.

For more Warzone, check out the promise that Raven Software recently made regarding “struggling” Modern Warfare weapons, and stay tuned to Charlie INTEL for more news.
