It was an exhilarating two days of action, as the members of Team Fifakill were able to show they belong in the discussion for best Warzone players in the world with their taking of the top spot of the final Toronto Ultra Warzone Tournament standings leaderboard.

Toronto Ultra Warzone Tournament Standings leaderboard
The final day of competition for the Canada Cup continued the adrenaline-fueled action from Day 1. An exciting set of matches determined which 8 teams from the top 16 qualifying trios from the first day of action would move on to the championship round.
Ultimately, Team Fifakill consisting of Recrent, Fifakill, and Warz, improved on its impressive second-place finish on Day 1 with a score of 556 points to secure the Toronto Ultra Warzone Tournament championship.
However, it was not an easy feat, as Team Zlaner and Team Tommey were right on their heels with only three points separating the three teams when the dust had settled on Verdansk.
The action-packed first day of the event saw the trio of FaZe Swagg, Biffle, and FaZe Booya finish the day at the top of the Toronto Ultra Warzone Tournament standings leaderboard with a total of 527 points.
However, Team Fifakill with Warsz, Fifakill, and Recrent was able to secure second place with 508 points, and Team Zlaner with Destroy, Clutchbelk, and Zlaner grabbed third place with 503 points to conclude their impressive Day 1 performance.
Unfortunately, the bottom 16 teams from the Day 1 Toronto Ultra Warzone Tournament standings leaderboard will not have a chance to compete on the final day of the event.

Toronto Ultra Warzone tournament format
While the World Series of Warzone had every player duking it out in one lobby and Atlanta Faze’s tournament favored the 2v2 Elimination format, Toronto Ultra’s saw the return of the Kill Race format.
In this $100k event, 23 Trios played as many matches as possible over a four-hour time period. With both kills and team placement scoring points, Trios submitted their top five matches once the four hours were up.
The top 16 scoring teams from the Toronto Ultra Warzone Tournament standings advanced to Day 2. All of Day 1’s points were reset, and the remaining Trios played for two hours and recorded their top three matches to lock in Round 1.
Then, the top eight teams from the Toronto Ultra Warzone Tournament standings advanced to the second round of Day 2. The teams played for two and a half hours this time and recorded their top five games but kept their highest score from Round 1.
The team with the highest overall score at the end of Round 2 won the tournament and took home the $33,000 grand prize.

Viral TikTok proves Warzone’s Ghost Perk is completely bugged in Season 4
A viral TikTok has revealed that Warzone’s Ghost Perk is broken in Season 4, as it doesn’t always hide players from UAVs.
It appears that there’s a major issue with Warzone’s Ghost Perk after a viral TikTok from streamer Jessie Cooks showcased the Perk failing in a Twitch Rivals event.
Over Warzone’s life, it’s suffered from a host of bugs and issues. Not only are there cheaters, but the invisibility glitch returned several times and players even found a way to enter the Gulag and kill its combatants. Now, it appears the Ghost Perk doesn’t always work.
Ghost is one of Warzone’s few meta perks. It completely hides you from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors, which is vital to winning a game of Warzone. However, there is recent evidence that the Ghost Perk can fail, still showing you on a UAV.
While the Ghost Perk is supposed to completely hide you from UAVs, a clip from Warzone streamer Jessie Cooks appears to prove that this isn’t always the case. While playing in a Twitch Rivals Custom Lobby, they equipped Ghost, yet were still hunted down after appearing on an opposing team’s UAV.
“We died to Huskerrs, JoeWoe and Mutex in Twitch Rivals [because] ghost doesn’t work,” Jessie shared on July 28 alongside a TikTok which provided the evidence.
In the video, Jessie Cooks and her team all grabbed their loadouts, clearly equipping the Ghost Perk. About a minute later, HusKerr’s team popped a UAV and could clearly see Jessie’s team on it. After hunting them down, JoeWoe made quick work of her by using the UAV’s information to throw a perfectly placed stun.
This TikTok went viral, catching the attention of analytical Warzone YouTuber JGOD, who said that “it makes no sense.” After watching all POVs and agreeing that Ghost should have worked, he suggested that it’s “likely a private match bug.”
A small streamer, Fabes_O, replied to JGOD with evidence that it “happens in pubs too.” They uploaded a clip showing the UAV sweep the Bounty circle but no red dots appeared. But as they approached, the team suddenly showed up on the minimap. Fabes_O was eliminated by them, and the killcam proved that the player did indeed have Ghost.

Raven Software hasn’t acknowledged this bug yet, but it’s gained enough traction online that it’s likely to be on their radar.

When is FOV slider coming to Warzone on consoles? Raven ‘aware’ of requests
Warzone players have been calling for an FOV slider on consoles since the game’s release, and Raven have confirmed they are investigating the possibility.
A Field-Of-View Slider for consoles has been a tool that Warzone players have been begging for since the game was released, and while Raven Software has acknowledged the requests, there’s no word on if or when it will finally be added.
Having an enhanced field of view on Warzone can be a huge advantage to players, allowing them to see more of their surroundings, and giving them the ability to customize their game exactly how they want to.
Fans have been calling for FOV slider support since the game’s original launch in March 2020, but so far, only the PC version of Warzone has the setting built into it. Unsurprisingly, these requests intensified when Black Ops Cold War launched with an FOV slider on consoles in November 2020.
What is an FOV slider?
A FOV slider allows players to change their field of view on the screen to see more of their surroundings. This would let you see more of what is on either side of the direction your character is facing, increasing your peripheral view.
In Warzone, the default FOV is set to 80, but in Black Ops Cold War as seen below, that can be increased to 120, a huge jump from what players can normally see.
Raven Software responds to Warzone FOV Slider calls
During a press briefing with Raven Software, the studio’s Associate Creative Director Amos Hodge revealed that the studio has heard all of the fan requests for a FOV slider in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Hodge stated that they have heard fans’ calls for FOV sliders and are actively looking at its implementation for consoles in the future. However, he stopped short of providing any release time frame, stating they ‘cannot share’ any timeline at this point.
Why is FOV not already available on consoles?
One of the concerns behind bringing a field of view slider to Warzone is performance, with Infinity Ward worried about how it would run on old hardware like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

With an increase in FOV, an adverse effect happens where you start to see a dip in frame rate in games. With Warzone supporting 150 players on a large map, the FPS drop could become so significant that it affects actual gameplay. This has been one of the key reasons why it has not been implemented yet.
Still, Raven are investigating possible options regarding its implementation. It’s important to note that this feature could be limited just to the PS5 and Xbox Series X, but the studio declined to elaborate any further on the details of it.
If you currently play on PC, this option is already available, and you can use our Warzone FOV settings guide to make sure you’re making the most of this advantage.

Best X16 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 4
The X16 is a great choice for those looking for a solid secondary weapon in their Warzone loadout, so here are the best perks and attachments to use on it.
The X16 can be a deadly secondary weapon in Warzone Season 4 with the right attachments and perks, so let’s get into the best loadout for it.
For those who like to run Ghost over Overkill, running a strong secondary weapon is extremely important in Call of Duty: Warzone.
There is an abundance of great secondary weapons to choose from in Warzone, such as the M19, and the X16 is one of the best most powerful, especially with the correct setup.
Here is how to make the best Warzone X16 loadout to dominate all of the enemies you encounter on Verdansk and Rebirth Island in Season 4.
Best Warzone X16 loadout
Best Warzone X16 loadout attachments
- Barrel: Monolithic Supressor
- Laser: 5mW Laser
- Trigger Action: Lightweight Trigger
- Ammunition: 26 Round Mag
- Perk: Akimbo
The best Warzone X16 loadout is equipped for close-ranged engagements, using the Monolithic Suppressor and 5mW Laser to help boost the damage and accuracy to finish off those who are just outside of its range.
The Lightweight Trigger is very important for improving the fire rate, while the 26 Round Mags will allow you to sustain fire for longer.
Lastly, and most importantly, the Akimbo perk helps greatly with increasing this weapon’s efficiency in those close quarters situations, allowing for a higher TTK and overall damage output.
Best perks to run with Warzone X16 class
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
As it is a secondary, you’ll want to be using the X16 for finishing off fights and also catching enemies by surprise by getting in enemy faces. Using E.O.D means you’ll reduce the risk of getting caught off guard by explosives when chasing enemies down and turning corners.
As always, Ghost will hide you from the minimap and Heartbeat Sensors, which is something that is greatly useful in Warzone, regardless of the weapon you’re using.
Amped will allow you to pull out the X16 fast to beat your enemy to the first shot, allowing you to finish off enemies and bombard them with bullets even after switching weapons.
How to unlock the X16
The X16 is a pistol in Warzone available from the get-go, meaning no matter your level, you can equip it to your loadout.
If you’re looking to dominate up close and don’t feel that the best Warzone X16 loadout fits the bill, the AS VAL is another great close-range option.
Or, if you’re looking for other secondaries, the akimbo Diamattis will do a similar job.
If you’re looking for more great weapons, then you can check out some of this season’s best loadouts below.
