Best Black Ops Cold War Weapons for Warzone in Season 1

Here’s the best Black Ops Cold War weapons you should be using right now to win more Warzone games in Season 1.

Call of Duty Warzone Season 1 introduces 30+ Black Ops Cold War weapons into the game. Here are the best weapons to use.

Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War has shook the meta of Warzone, changing the way players craft their loadouts before landing in Verdansk or Rebirth Island. Many new SMG’s and Tactical Rifles from Black Ops Cold War have seen a surge in use, out damaging Modern Warfare’s weapons.

Here’s our picks for some of the best Black Ops Cold War weapons for Season 1 of Warzone.

DMR 14

The DMR 14 is terrorizing players in Verdansk. It offers superior damage and range vs other weapons. On top of all these amazing stats, it also can house up to a 40 round magazine for long gunfights. All it takes is 3-4 well placed shots on an enemy to bring them down. Here’s our loadout pick.

  • Muzzle – Agency Silencer
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 30 round magazine
  • Optic – Axial Arms 3x
  • Barrel – 16.3″ Titanium

MAC -10

The MAC-10 is deadly, fast firing, and decently accurate for a weapon of its power. Takedown enemies before they can react with an MP5 or any comparable SMG. The MAC 10 is king for close-range team fights, or just taking on a 1v1.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Ammunition: Salvo 53 Round Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Wire Stock

Diamatti Pistols

The Diamatti Pistols are by far the most powerful up close weapon in the game. While the MAC-10 is useful for teamfights enemies a few meters in front of you, the Akimbo Diamatti’s are better than shotguns. One single burst from these weapons will down a player directly in front of you, not even giving them a chance to react.

You can watch Swagg’s video above to see them in action, and click here for the loadout.

AUG

The AUG from Black Ops Cold War is insane in Warzone, one bursting enemies up close and two bursting enemies at range. Aim high for maximum damage, and get an instant down.

You can see the weapon in use by going to the 4:45 timestamp of YouTuber Westie’s video above. The loadout is as follows.

  • Barrel – 18.2″ Strike Team Barrel
  • Optic – Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 45 Round Speed Mag
  • Muzzle – Suppressor

M16

Similar to the AUG, the M16 is also a hard hitting burst rifle. It has a bit more reliability at range than the AUG, and also a bit more stability. The choice between the M16 and AUG comes down to individual player tastes. Many marksmen will gravitate to the M16, where aggressive players may prefer the AUG.

You can watch the weapon being used in the video above from KARNAGE Clan. Here’s the loadout breakdown.

  • Ammunition – 45 Round Magazine
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Fieldgrip
  • Barrel – 20.5″ Match Grade
  • Muzzle – Agency Silencer
  • Optic – Hawksmoor (for CQC, recommended 3x Axial Arms for marksmen)

Bizarre Warzone glitch plays constant music around Verdansk

An unusual Warzone bug allowed one player to keep the stream of beats flowing through their ears thanks to an odd glitch.

Music is usually reserved for Warzone’s vehicles to make the journey a bit more pleasant. However, a new glitch is allowing players to extend their listening to on-foot gameplay with one player enjoying the sounds of Bangarang longer than normal.

It’s fun to ride a vehicle around a war-torn battlefield with death looming around every corner. Travel is a momentary distraction that can also get the blood-pumping thanks to Warzone’s licensed anthems.

You traditionally get to enjoy some awesome tunes whilst you’re riding in the vehicle. Yet one player’s experience turned into an on-foot concert as well.

Warzone glitch plays music on-foot

The insinuation is that our Call of Duty player has recently gotten out of a vehicle and the game decided to carry on the Bangarang track a bit longer than normal.

Reddit user ThePartsGuy is blissfully running through the map with his MAC-10 and teammates when Skrillex decides to join them on their journey.

He and his teammates have a good laugh about the situation as the act of hearing enemy gunfire and footsteps is nigh on impossible due to Bangarang continuing to play throughout their headsets.

They continue to investigate the map and vibe, and it seems that the music goes away after the song finishes.

But soon after its completion, another one of the game’s licensed tracks begins to slowly start-up and they prepare for another few minutes of distractions.

According to other users in the thread, the music glitch is a random occurrence that needs to be stopped manually.

You can either:

  • “You just got to get into another car and turn off music manually to fix it though.”
  • “Found out it was a easy fix within the audio settings under the “War Tracks” section just had to disable it and turn down the volume.”

So if this does happen to you, then at least there are some easy fixes for you to employ.

Warzone players call for changes to unfair Nuketown Gulag

Some CoD players are calling for changes to Warzone Season 1’s Gulag as it unfairly punishes one player in each instance of a Nuketown 1v1.

Warzone’s new Nuketown-inspired Gulag has come in for criticism as of late. Players are saying that one side of the CoD map heavily favors one player, making it unfair for their rival.

There have been a plethora of changes to Warzone since it integrated into Black Ops Cold War. The Season 1 launch has seen the game receive a whole new map in Rebirth Island, there’s been the slew of new guns brought over from BOCW, and there have been gameplay changes.

But not everything has been a smash-hit for the season. There have been complaints about the DMR, the return of the stim glitch, and even “pay-to-win” skins. Further still, a new change has seen the traditional Shower-based Gulag replaced by a variation of Nuketown.

Most instances of Nuketown are usually welcomed. In this case, the addition has been lamented due to the fact that it’s changed the dynamics of the Gulag and made it unfair for one of the players.

The original Gulag became etched in internet infamy, generating endless memes and challenging players to “1v1 in the Gulag”. It was a tough proving ground that allowed one player to win a duel, earn their stripes, and gain the opportunity to re-enter the Warzone.

One of the Gulag’s best qualities was that it was fair and unprejudiced. The whole arena was symmetrical, and each player had the same layout to contend with. It meant that it all boiled down to pure skill and who could keep their cool the best.

The new Nuketown Gulag doesn’t quite offer the same challenge, and it actually incorporates an element of luck into proceedings.

Players are complaining that one side of Nuketown has certain obstacles to exploit that the other player doesn’t have. These are sentiments from the Warzone subreddit with multiple players all unifying to show their displeasure with the game’s newest Gulag.

“The title says it all. 40% of my gulag deaths are from my enemy camping behind the car ruins. That’s not what the gulag was originally designed to do. This needs a change.”

The general consensus is that players would like to see the old Gulag restored so that there isn’t a feeling of being unfairly treated.

Given how popular and iconic the original Gulag was, it could easily be welcomed back in Season 2 to bring about a new wealth of memes.
