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.
The FFAR is a fast firing and powerful jack-of-all-trades Assault Rifle. The extended Salvo 50 round magazine makes for large ammo counts with fast reloads, and the Raider Stock gives you the ultimate strafe speed while firing. The Bruiser Grip also has hidden stats that improve weapon handling and reduce recoil.
- Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
- Barrel – 21.2″ Ranger
- Underbarrel – Bruiser Grip
- Ammunition – Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag
- Stock – Raider Stock
The Tundra sniper is a highly powerful bolt-action rifle with a very fast bullet travel time. It’s also a new Black Ops Cold War sniper, and carries a secret advantage over the other snipers in Warzone, due to it having no glint. That’s right – enemies don’t know when you’re sniping their way. Until a proper patch is released, use this to your advantage.
- Muzzle – Wrapped Suppressor
- Barrel – 29.1″ Combat Recon
- Underbarrel – Infiltrator Grip
- Ammunition – STANAG 9 Round
- Stock – CQB Pad
The DMR 14 has seen a fair share of well-deserved nerfs but still packs a punch at range, and takes down enemies with just a few well placed shots. While it cannot be spammed like it used to, it still makes a great medium range weapon to take down entire squads.
- Muzzle – Agency Silencer
- Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
- Ammunition – 30 round magazine
- Optic – Axial Arms 3x
- Barrel – 16.3″ Titanium
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″ Ranger
- Ammunition: Salvo 53 Round Fast Mag
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Stock: SAS Combat Stock
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
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)

We’ll start this loadout with the Gru Suppressor, which will help you avoid enemy detection on their radars while also drastically increasing the damage range of this Assault Rifle. This will allow you to dish out heavy amounts of damage at further distances.
The 18.7″ Spetsnaz RPK Barrel will improve both the Assault Rifle’s effective damage range, horizontal recoil control, vertical recoil control, and bullet velocity. This helps prime the weapon for mid to long-range combat, where you need to pick off enemies from a distance by having the largest damage increase and recoil control of all of the gun’s available barrels.

Warzone player encounters hilarious Sentry Turret glitch
After coming up with a high IQ play, one Warzone player was severely punished for their clever use of a Sentry Turret with a glitch.
Creative use of a Sentry Turret Scorestreak ended in disaster for one Warzone player as the game seemingly rejected their inventive idea and blew it up instead.
We’ve all seen a Trophy System thrown onto a vehicle before as it allows a player to roam around freely in their vehicle, and the equipment will blow up any incoming projectile threats.
However, one Call of Duty: Warzone player decided to go one step further and place their Sentry Turret Scorestreak on a Big Bertha. The results were probably not what the player was expecting at all.
AdamMarsdenUK is the name of our unlucky player who thought they were onto a cool new play in Warzone Season 4.
In the middle of a game of Plunder, they climbed onto the hood of their Big Bertha truck and slapped down a fearsome Sentry Turret to guard it.
Instead of defensive hardware that will swat away any grenades or lethals, the Sentry Turret would be looking to chop down any enemies with a relentless barrage of bullets.
Strangely, when they entered the vehicle, the whole truck began to glitch uncontrollably, and it was as if the truck had been hit by the world’s most deadly earthquake.
Instead of driving around normally, the truck was throwing itself around the vicinity rather violently, to the point the player had to quickly get out of the sentient vehicle.
In one last act of defiance, the truck rolled itself up a tree, came back to the ground, and exploded in amusing fashion.
One reply to the Reddit thread said: “This could be a good trap if you let someone come up behind it to steal it.”
It’s unknown if this was a one-off, isolated incident. We would suggest you err on the side of caution if you intend to put down a Sentry Turret on your Bertha and attempt to drive with it.

- Barrel – 13″ Reinforced Heavy
- Laser – Ember Sighting Point
- Ammunition – STANAG 18 Round

The Agency Choke provides this loadout with a great deal of damage range, which will make sure that the damage falloff for this Shotgun does not lead to your demise in medium-range fights.
Combined with the 13″ Reinforced Heavy barrel, this setup will give you the best damage range possible and will allow you to take down enemies even if they are not straight in front of you.
Hip-firing is one of the most important aspects of using a Shotgun, and the Ember Sighting Point will give you an insane boost to hip-firing accuracy allowing you not even to have to aim down the sights to hit accurate shots on targets.
Having the STANAG 18 Round magazine will give you all of the ammo you need to wipe out an entire enemy team without having to worry about reloading.
Finally, the Marathon Stock will provide you with a beneficial boost in mobility, which will allow you to move quickly around the map and get in close to destroy enemies.
Best perks to use with Warzone Streetsweeper class
- Perk 1: E.O.D.
- Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
You will find that many gunfights in Warzone start with enemy players throwing different kinds of explosives at you to break armor before they rush. Using E.O.D. will reduce the amount of damage you take from enemy explosives and make sure you are not as weak if you get hit.
While the best Streetsweeper Shotgun Warzone loadout will be a vital asset in close-quarters fights, you will want to use Overkill to makes sure you have a longer-range weapon as well.
A second loadout can then be used to attain Ghost and make yourself undetectable by UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.
Getting caught switching between weapons can result in you getting eliminated, which is why using Amped will help greatly by increasing your weapon swap speed and make sure you have the right weapon for the job as fast as possible.
How to unlock the Streetsweeper
Players who would like to add this shotgun to their inventory will have to get 3 kills without dying using shotguns in 15 different matches.
You can complete this unlock challenge in either Black Ops Cold War or Warzone, but we recommend Black Ops Cold War, as it will be much easier in multiplayer matches than battle royale games.
