TimTheTatMan reveals ‘hitscan’ LW3 sniper in Warzone Season 1

Streamer TimTheTatMan tested an LW3 – Tundra sniper build which claims to be ‘hitscan’ in Warzone Season 1 and found it extremely effective.

BOCW’s LW3 – Tundra is an incredibly powerful sniper rifle in Warzone Season 1, and streamer TimTheTatMan revealed his “hitscan” loadout which he took from TikTok, of all places.

As part of streamer TimTheTatMan’s YouTube series where he tests weapon loadouts from TikTok, the streamer tried an LW3 – Tundra loadout which claims to be “hitscan.”

A hitscan weapon is where the bullet isn’t a physical object, so it will immediately hit the target upon pulling the trigger. Even if an enemy is flying through the air at maximum velocity, you don’t have to lead the shot at all.

There was a similar issue with the SPR-08 Marksman Rifle which was added to Modern Warfare in Season 6. This was soon addressed, but now creators are claiming the Tundra is “hitscan.”

The Tundra isn’t really hitscan; it appears to just be hyperbole for its incredible bullet velocity. However, right in the middle of the DMR 14 and Diamatti META, Tim used the LW3 sniper with great success.

TimTheTatMan used these attachments for his “hitscan” LW3 – Tundra:

  • Muzzle: Stabilizer .308
  • Barrel: 28.2″ Tiger Team
  • Stock: CQB Pad
  • Ammunition: 7 Rnd
  • Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap

He wasn’t confident that it would be viable, stating at the beginning of the match, “I feel like this sniper is about to suck and TikTok is about to be wrong, but that’s what these tests are for.”

After quickly wiping a team and getting called a cheater in the death chatter, Tim was impressed with the LW3 – Tundra. Even while being shot at by Tactical Rifles, his shots would almost immediately down the enemy. In his conclusion, Tim said it’s the best Cold War sniper rifle, but you should add the Wrapped Suppressor instead of the Stabilizer .308.

Now that the DMR 14 has finally been nerfed, Tundra is a fun and effective alternative now that you can use some other weapons without being melted by a DMR every time.

TimTheTatMan proved that the LW3 is absolutely viable, even during the most one-sided META Warzone had ever seen.

NICKMERCS has returned to Warzone after a hiatus, and the popular content creator believes he has found the one SMG that will be replacing all of the other ones in the Call of Duty battle royale.

There is a wide range of powerful weapons that players can equip and use to dominate their enemies in Call of Duty: Warzone with SMGs being some of the best, especially when it comes to close-quarter battles.

Fan-favorite streamer and YouTuber NICKMERCS has recently dove into Warzone with one particular SMG that he believes is the replacement for all of the other ones available in Warzone.

NICKMERCS OTs 9 Warzone loadout

This SMG that NICKMERCS believes is the replacement for every other SMG in Warzone is the OTs 9 from Black Ops Cold War.

This compact weapon has great mobility and stopping power making it a perfect choice for players when it comes to winning close-quarter gunfights.

You can find the Warzone OTs 9 loadout that NICKMERCS uses below:

  • Muzzle – GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel – 8.1″ Task Force
  • Laser – None
  • Optic – None
  • Stock – KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Underbarrel – None
  • Magazine VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip – Serpent Wrap

The video that NICKMERCS used this OTs 9 Warzone loadout in showed off the power of this SMG in the Call of Duty battle royale, as he was able to secure a double-digit kill win in what would be a solid performance for any warzone player.

While the NICKMERCS OTs 9 Warzone loadout may not be a meta weapon when the Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone integration takes place with a new map and anti-cheat, there is no doubt that it is easily a solid replacement for any SMG that a player may feel is not performing as good as they want.

You’ll find yourself engaging in a variety of different combat situations when you jump into a match of Warzone, and you’ll make use of different weapons in each one. SMGs are ideal for close-range engagements.

The Milano 821 had no changes in the Warzone Season 6 update, retaining its recoil, damage range, and multipliers. This makes the Milano one of the best SMGs in the game, and you can improve it with the right loadout.

Best Warzone Milano loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 10.6″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Stock: SAS combat stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd Drum

We’ll start with the best Warzone Milano loadout with the Agency Suppressor to increase the damage range and bullet velocity of this SMG. You’ll also get better control over vertical recoil, and the sound suppression is great for stealth.

You’ll want to be able to move through close quarters quickly while firing, and the 10.6″ Task Force will let you strafe faster. It will also further improve the damage, effective damage range, and bullet velocity.

We picked the Axial Arms 3x so that we have a clear and precise optic for the Milano 821. It will slightly reduce your ADS speed, but that’s not a noticeable loss for an SMG.

The SAS Combat Stock will provide another powerful boost to your mobility, allowing you to move faster while shooting and boosting your aim walking speed. This will slightly reduce your hip-fire accuracy.

Finally, you’ll want to ensure that you have enough bullets to secure victory when using the best Warzone Milano loadout, and using the STANAG 55 Rnd drum magazine will help you with that.

Best Perks to use with Warzone Milano class

best perks Milano class
  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

You’ll need to be fast when you get into close and medium-range encounters, and Double Time will allow you to run for longer periods of time when using the best Warzone Milano loadout. Now, you’ll be able to get away from enemies.

While the attachments will help make up for the damage range that was lost in the Season 5 Reloaded update, we recommend getting Overkill so that you can equip a longer-ranged gun to accompany the Milano, such as the Swiss K31.

You can then select Ghost from your second loadout drop, allowing you to avoid enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Detectors.

Finally, the Combat Scout Perk is a must for any Warzone loadout as it’s revolutionized the game. With a gun like the Milano, you should at least land a shot on your opponent, and it will cast a live ping marker above their head for 5 solid seconds, giving you a great window of opportunity.
