The CR-56 AMAX has been dominating Warzone these past few weeks, so here’s the best builds across Warzone and multiplayer to give you that competitive edge.
Since the Grau and the Bruen were nerfed, the M4A1, Kilo 141 and the CR-56 AMAX became the most popular assault rifles in Verdansk. The AMAX is favoured due to its high damage potential, being able to down fully armoured players in only a few shots.
The AMAX is a little harder to control than the M4 and the Kilo so here’s some build to maximise its potential across Warzone and multiplayer.
Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX Loadout
- Monolithic Suppressor
- XRK Zodiac S440
- VLK 3.0x Optic
- Commando Foregrip
- 45 Round Mags
There’s a reason why so many streamers and content creators use this CR-56 AMAX build. It’s maxed out for range and recoil control, being especially dominant at medium range. Much of the Verdansk is open ground, making a medium-long range build necessary for survival.
The monolithic suppressor and longest barrel are necessary editions for the AMAX. These attachments often come hand in hand, maximising any assault rifles effective range. Put a commando foregrip on this barrel and you’ll find controlling the vertical recoil much more manageable.
While optional, the VLK Optic makes this weapon even stronger. This unobtrusive optic allows you to have a clear view of enemies and where your shots are going, allowing for further recoil control. The 45 Round Mag increases your ADS time, but reduces the need to reload mid firefight. With the current prevalence of self-revive, not letting that player crawl away could be the difference between a win and a loss.
The only downside to these attachments is a reduction in ADS time, making close range engagements more difficult. If you stick to the outdoors with this weapon build and use it at its most effective range, you’ll find yourself being one of the most dominant players on the map.
Best Multiplayer CR-56 AMAX Loadout
- XRK Zodiac S440
- GI Mini Reflex
- FSS Close Quarters Stock
- Commando Foregrip
- 45 Round Mags
Smaller multiplayer maps require the AMAX to be more versatile. This weapon is built to combine damage and ADS time to give you the edge in most engagements. This all-rounder build will still fall short against SMGs and shotguns so maintain distance from objectives to maximise its potential.
We’re going with the longest barrel again in order to keep the weapon effective at range. This does slow the weapon down, so a Close Quarters Stock is a perfect edition to balance that out. The Close Quarters Stock does make the weapon harder to control, so a Commando Foregrip is necessary to keep the weapon under control.
When rushing a point, the 45 Round Mags will be vital to taking down multiple enemies without having to reload. If you’re more confident at controlling the recoil and using iron sights, you could swap the red dot sight for Stippled Grip Tape to increase that ADS time further.
‘More content’ coming to Modern Warfare as Season 6 ends
While November 23 marks the end of the Season 6 Battle Pass in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, fans have been wondering about new content for the title.
There has been no official news on what’s next in terms of content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare after Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War.
The confirmation we have so far is that Modern Warfare will receive a new progression system to match the new system in Black Ops Cold War starting on December 10. Fans can learn more about the Progression system in a detailed blog post.
Now, an Infinity Ward developer has confirmed on Twitter that there is more content planned for Modern Warfare. He says that he’s not aware of the ‘official name’ of the new content, but more is coming.
It’s not clear at this time what the new content will be for Modern Warfare. Modern Warfare continues to be a very popular Call of Duty game, selling over 30 million copies in its first year. Activision has not outlined future plans for the game itself.
Season 6’s Battle Pass officially ended in Modern Warfare & Warzone on November 23. The pass reset timer says 0seconds left.
Warzone will officially be tied to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s system starting on December 10 with a new Classified Experience. Players playing Modern Warfare MP can continue to level up their overall player rank and access the Seasonal Prestige system. They can also contribute toward’s ranking up the Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Battle Pass, but content unlocked is only usable in Black Ops cold War & Warzone.
We’ll keep you updated as more information is announced.
How Modern Warfare progression will change after Season 6
Modern Warfare will integrate with Cold War in December. Here’s how that will work.
Season 6 of Modern Warfare ends on November 23, so what’s next for the title after integration with Black Ops Cold War?
Season 6 appears to be the final season of Modern Warfare. With the launch of Black Ops: Cold War, the focus has been shifted to the new title and Warzone.
It’s not the end of Modern Warfare, however. Season 6 ends on November 23. After that, fans will have to wait until December 10, when Modern Warfare and Warzone integrate with Black Ops Cold War.
This integration will bring a new progression system to the game. Read on to find out how the new progression system works and what’s next for Modern Warfare.
Modern Warfare progression
On December 10, progression will become unified between Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare, and Warzone. This means that you’ll now have one rank for all three titles. No matter which game you’re playing, you will rank up on all of them.
This new progression system combines Modern Warfare’s seasonal progression with the classic Prestige system. Every season, once you hit the maximum season level, you will begin your Prestige levels. Season levels will reset every Season, but your progress will resume from the highest Prestige you achieved in the previous Season.
Your current level on Modern Warfare will be scrapped once integration begins. Your Black Ops Cold War rank will now become your rank on Modern Warfare. As you play either Cold War, Warzone, or Modern Warfare, your rank will increase.
Future of Modern Warfare
usually, once a new Call of Duty launches, the population of the previous game begins to dwindle. The majority of players move onto the new game, and only a hardcore few remain on the previous title.
Unified progression might change this. With Warzone being the connecting mode between Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War, weapons from both titles can be used in Warzone.
Warzone is free-to-play and allows players to use weapons from both games, even if they don’t own them. Leveling up weapons and unlocking camos is much easier in multiplayer, so players may return to Modern Warfare’s multiplayer to get attachments for use in Warzone.
Although Black Ops Cold War has released, it’s certainly not the end for Modern Warfare.
Black Ops Cold War UK opening week sales lower than Modern Warfare
The first full week data from the UK on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sales are out, and the numbers are not as high as 2019’s sales.
The UK game charts, via GamesIndustry, reveals that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s digital downloads were up 39% over Modern Warfare’s 2019 opening.
However, the game’s physical sales were down almost 64% compared to Modern Warfare.
The first week UK charts saw Assassins Creed Valhalla debut at #1 in terms of physical game sales. Some report that this is due to Black Ops Cold War’s digital purchase incentives, and that the game’s physical edition was not available in certain retailers.
Combining the digital and physical sales from launch week, Black Ops Cold War debuts at #1 in the UK charts. But the game’s overall sales didn’t match Modern Warfare’s opening week in the UK.
Data shows the game’s first week sales are down 16% compared to Modern Warfare. Modern Warfare is one of the best selling Call of Duty games of all time. The game’s opening weekend in October 2019 saw $600 million in revenue. The title has gone on to sold well over 30 million copies to date.
And it’s become clear that Warzone’s success could’ve impacted sales for the new titles. Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War is set for December 10. It could be that after the integration, Activision will see higher premium upgrades from players interested in the entire game’s experience.
Activision has not released opening week data for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The company only has said that the game’s day one digital sales were the ‘highest’ in franchise history.
