The launch of Black Ops Cold War x Warzone Season 3 means that a new Battle Pass is available, packed with lots of tasty content. See how you can level it up the fastest way possible to reap the benefits.

It’s hard to believe that Season 2 launched months ago, but here we are in Season 3 of the latest Call of Duty title and Warzone. Along with a new PPSH submachine gun and Swiss K31 sniper rifle, there is the usual flashy array of content locked behind the new Battle Pass.

Some people want to spread the enjoyment by leveling it up throughout the season, whereas some want those items ASAP to enjoy for longer. We’ve put together this handy guide with a few tips to power your way through the 100 Tiers.

It’s not just the primal instinct to want everything now with the Battle Pass. It also contains some beneficial stuff that can actually help you in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.

Besides paid content, it also has various free Tiers that all Call of Duty players can take advantage of. The reason players should be more conscious of the Season 3 Battle Pass is that it contains lots of free Double XP boosts and free weapons.

Just like how weapons were free for players to acquire in previous passes, both the new PPSH SMG and Swiss K31 sniper rifle are available at no extra cost in the Season 3 Battle Pass.

Here’s how you can level up your pass a lot quicker in Treyarch’s Black Ops Cold War and the popular battle royale Warzone.

Buy the Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Season 3 Battle Pass ASAP

A common sense one to start with, but a crucial one too. Some players will spend weeks dilly-dallying, debating whether or not to invest money in the Battle Pass.

The only problem with this indecision is that it comes at the detriment of progress. See, you earn a permanent XP Boost by owning the Battle Pass, and any latecomers will be missing out on extra bonuses during this lost time.

Furthermore, if you choose to buy the more premium version of the Season 3 Battle Pass, then you can unlock 20 Tiers from the get-go, saving time in the process.

Double XP Weekend

When these come around, absolutely do your best to make the most of them. Given the limited nature of them and the sparsity of these events, you should really focus on maximizing any potential gains.

These weekends sometimes offer Double progress towards the Battle Pass, as well as Double XP.

Playing 4-player Zombies

This method is slightly dependent on how good you are at Zombies and how much you enjoy the mode. What we can be certain of is that if you’re playing with multiple players, then you have the chance to earn copious amounts of XP, and therefore level your pass faster.

The return you get back is heavily dependent on how many players you play with. A solo game won’t earn nearly anywhere near as much as playing with a full quota. So playing Die Maschine & Firebase Z with friends will stand to gain you the most progress.

Warzone counts towards the Season 3 Battle Pass

If you’re someone who likes to frolic in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, then the good news is that Battle Pass progress counts across both modes.

As part of the integration into each other, it’s meant that progress carries across all modes.

So if you’re worried about missing out by having a Warzone night, then fear not, you can try to secure a Victory as much as you like, and you’ll still contribute to the Season 3 Battle Pass.

How to improve your aim in Call of Duty: Warzone

Here are some top tips to practice and remember to ensure your aim is laser accurate in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3.

How to improve your aim in CoD Warzone

Whether you’re new to Call of Duty or are a veteran looking to improve your kill/death ratio, these tips will help you improve your aim in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Aim is probably the most important aspect of shooters, especially battle royale games. Even with the best position, missing your shots will lose you the firefight. But with good aim, you can survive the worst situations Warzone throws at you.

The problem with trying to improve your aim in battle royale games is that there may be a lot of downtime between firefights. If you’re in an area with no enemies or you die before getting into a real fight, you won’t be getting much chance to practice your aim.

We’ve put together some top tips to help you get started, stay accurate in-game, and maximize your time while practicing.

Find the right Warzone sensitivity

Whether you’re playing Warzone on mouse and keyboard or controller, sensitivity is one of the most important aspects of your aim. Having your sensitivity to slow will make your aim sluggish, preventing you from effectively tracking fast-moving players. Too high, however, and your crosshair will rush past your target as you overshoot.

A common mistake is to find your favorite streamers such as NICKMERCS or Dr Disrespect and copy their settings. Unfortunately, sensitivity isn’t a one-shoe-fits-all matter. You’ll need to find the aim that’s perfect for you and your playstyle.

Play either Modern Warfare’s multiplayer or Warzone’s practice mode and you can mess with your sensitivity while shooting the bots until you’re comfortable.

Center your aim

You might have heard Warzone’s top players talk about ‘centering’ their aim. To put centering simply, you need to make sure the white crosshair in the center of your screen is always where you anticipate enemies to be.

Warzone sniping

Something that a lot of battle royale players are guilty of is aiming at the floor as they loot. If someone jumps you while your aim is on the floor, you’ll need to aim up to hit them, which takes time. If you’ve got the crosshair aimed where an enemy could come from, you’ll hardly need to adjust your aim, allowing you to quickly snap onto them.

Remembering to center is the only difficult aspect, but it’ll do wonders for your overall aim and reaction time. It’s easy to do while navigating Verdansk – for example, if you’re approaching a building with a window facing you, center your crosshair on the window in anticipation of a player appearing there.

Once you’ve got centering down in Warzone, you need to make sure your shots are doing the maximum damage. While hitting enemies in the head is the fastest way to kill them, it’s also the most difficult.

Ghost fighting in CoD Warzone

You should center your aim around chest height. This is the biggest area on their body so your shots have the most chance of landing, and the recoil will naturally move your aim to their head. Once you’re confident with your aim, then start exclusively going for headshots, but we recommend beginning with the basics.

Keep centering in your mind while playing, and before you know it, you’ll build a habit and won’t even have to think about it anymore.

Use 3D Aim Trainer to practice

There are several aim trainers you can download to warm up and practice your aim for mouse and keyboard. We recommend using 3D Aim Trainer because, not only is it free, it actually replicates playing Warzone. You can set your FOV to match Warzone’s, as well as pick from a list of Modern Warfare weapons to practice with.

For example, if you’re struggling with the CR-56 AMAX’s recoil, you can choose the AMAX along with the VLK 3.0x Optic and practice to your heart’s content. They’ve also created a training drill that hones all aspects of your aim and will provide you with a detailed stats breakdown so you can see where you need to improve.

You can download 3D Aim trainer completely for free, or just use it through your browser. Spending 20-30 minutes a day focusing solely on your aim will do more good for your accuracy than hours of Warzone.

You can even practice your CoD Mobile aim by downloading their mobile app on Android and IOS.


Other than these tips, the best way to improve your Warzone gameplay is simply by playing the game. However, keep these tips in mind while playing and you’ll be tracking and hitting flick shots like the pros in no time.

Best PPSH-41 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

Warzone Season 3’s monstrous new SMG is here, and our loadout will make the PPSH-41 unreal – thanks to the right attachments & perks.

Published

The PPSH-41 is now in Warzone. The notoriously fast-firing SMG is sure to cause big damage in Warzone Season 3, so make sure you’re not missing out with our best loadout, complete with attachments and perks.

Multiple Call of Duty games have featured the PPSH-41 SMG, and it’s been mega-popular and used frequently in them all. Its blistering speed can sometimes be hard to control, but given that Warzone has a near-endless stream of attachments, the PPSH can become a beast.

Season 3 represents a fresh start for the battle royale, and thanks to recent nerfs and updates, the regurgitation of AUG, M16, and FFAR loadouts could finally be over. Repetitive classes have been nuked, as well as Verdansk, and the PPSH is here to stake its claim as the meta king.

Best Warzone Season 3 PPSH-41 attachments

cod warzone ppsh smg
  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.4″ Task Force
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: 55 Rnd Mag
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

To get this PPSH loadout rolling we’re immediately applying the popular GRU Suppressor as we want our SMG to be quiet, but still, own at any range. The 7.4″ Task Force barrel is a must for most SMGs as, again, it helps it to excel and increase its damage over longer distances.

The Raider Stock is great for increasing your overall mobility and speed, and the 55 Rnd Mag gives us a little bit extra to finish off two or three players.

We finish the attachments off with the Serpent Wrap as its increased ADS, with little drawbacks, is a big plus to munch enemies at close range.

Best perks to run with Warzone’s PPSH

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped

Given that you’re going to want to get in close with PPSH on a regular basis in Warzone, E.O.D will allow you to shrug off Thermite, Claymores, and other explosive distractions.

Even with attachments, an SMG still lacks the full range that an Assault Rifle can offer, so Overkill lets us play with a longer-range gun. Whereas Amped is a necessity to switch from a ranged weapon to the PPSH in no time at all for a sudden engagement.

How to unlock the PPSH in Warzone & Cold War

cod warzone ppsh-41 smg perks

For all of you desperate to get your hands on the PPSH-41, you’ll be pleased to know that it won’t take much effort.

To unlock the PPSH-41, players will simply need to reach Level 15 in the Battle Pass, a free tier.

Also, because the same XP is tied to both Cold War and Warzone, the good news is that you can unlock the PPSH-41 on either game.

Best alternatives to the PPSH-41 in Warzone

The PPSH is simply a machine. But if you want some serious range to go with it, then equip something meaty like the HDR or LW3 Tundra.

Or, become a close-mid-range monster and pair the PPSH with the Gallo SA12.


If you’re looking to overhaul your Call of Duty: Warzone loadouts, you can check out our guides on some of the weapons dominating the meta right now.
