Warzone dev confirms Sniper Rifle nerfs coming in Season 3

Raven Creative Director Ted Timmons confirmed that Sniper Rifles will get nerfed in the Warzone Season 3 patch.

Raven Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins has revealed that the Warzone developers will be introducing weapon balancing changes designed to “shift the meta” regarding Sniper Rifles in Season 3.

Warzone’s Sniper Rifles are an incredibly powerful tool, capable of dealing high damage to players from distance.

In Season 2, some Warzone players have felt that these rifles are too strong, especially on Caldera. Their high damage output makes them truly lethal, and if you get hit by one of them, there’s a good chance you’re headed for the Gulag or the lobby.

That could be about to change though, with Raven Software’s Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins revealing that the weapon balancing team could be about to make some major changes.

During an interview with the Baka Bros, Timmons was asked by Hector ‘Repullze‘ Torres about these long-range monsters, and whether the devs had any plans to counter their power in upcoming patches.

“I would love to have this conversation when we get closer to Season 3. My DMs are lighting up because the weapons team are listening in,” the developer replied. “We do plan a weapon shift for the Snipers. I’m happy to say that.”

“I think we would all agree it’s long overdue. The Sniper meta hasn’t changed in what feels like forever. I feel really good about where we’re going with that.”

Timmons and the Warzone devs have been taking part in a number of interviews with content creators, giving insight into their decision-making and future plans. On March 30, Timmins responded to questions about raising the Caldera player count to 200.

Timmins didn’t go as far as to say what form these nerfs will take, but it’s clear that the devs are planning to shake things up with the next seasonal update.

We don’t have a date for these balancing changes yet either, but according to the Season 2 Battle Pass, we can expect them around April 26, 2022, when Warzone Season 3 is scheduled to begin.

Warzone 2 leak reveals major Pro Perk return details

A classic CoD feature looks set to return in Warzone 2 as leaks suggest Pro Perks will make their way to the sequel.



Warzone 2 Pro Perks

A new leak has backed up claims that Pro Perks from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2 will return in Warzone 2, explaining how they’ll work in the highly-anticipated sequel to Call of Duty’s battle royale title.

Warzone 2 rumors and leaks are beginning to pick up steam as multiple reports have surfaced during the week of May 16 that share possible details about the sequel. It seems the battle royale will be drawing heavily from past CoD titles, as classic Modern Warfare 2 maps are supposedly making their way to Warzone 2.

It turns out those maps might not be the only inclusion from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, with a new leak suggesting Pro Perks could be a brand-new feature in Warzone 2.

Modern Warfare 2 Commando Pro Perk

Renowned Call of Duty leaker and industry insider Tom Henderson’s report released on May 20 revealed various Warzone 2 details. The report shed light on a new interrogation feature as well as a possible bag system for looting.

For those interested in new features, Henderson also stated that “Pro Perks were on pre-determined classes during the recent Warzone 2 playtests.” It seems a recent Warzone 2 playtest revealed the appearance of Pro Perks in the battle royale.

In Modern Warfare 2, Pro Perks acted as boosted versions of standard Perks. These superior versions essentially add another trait to the standard version of the Perk. For example, the Commando Perk increased melee distance, while the Commando Pro Perk increased melee distance and made players immune to fall damage.

Before you get ahead of yourself and dream of the perfect loadout with Pro Perks equipped, Henderson stated that “it’s not entirely clear whether or not Pro Perks will be able to be used on your Loadout as you might need to loot and use them in order to get an extra edge.”

Henderson goes on to explain that one way of obtaining Pro Perks will be to loot Strongholds. Finding Pro Perks in-game as an extra advantage could add a new layer of strategy to Warzone 2 gameplay.

We’ll keep you posted once we know more about how Pro Perks will be integrated into the game.

Warzone 2 reportedly brings interrogation system similar to Rainbow Six Siege

Industry insider Tom Henderson claims that Warzone 2 will allow players to interrogate downed enemies similar to Rainbow Six Siege.

Industry insider Tom Henderson has dropped even more Warzone 2 leaks, claiming that players will be able to interrogate downed opponents similar to Rainbow Six Siege and Fortnite.

The only official information we have surrounding Warzone 2 is that it’s in development alongside Modern Warfare 2 and will be “disruptive” and a “massive evolution of Battle Royale.” However, insider Tom Henderson and YouTuber NerosCinema have dropped a ton of leaks.

Henderson claims to have revealed all of the Warzone 2 map’s POIs, including the classic Modern Warfare 2 maps they’ll be built around, and also expanded on Nero’s claims that there will be Strongholds, Pro Perks, and a new inventory management system.

In his May 20 eXputer report, Henderson claimed that Warzone 2 could feature an interrogation system similar to the one found in Rainbow Six Siege.

Both Rainbow Six Siege and Fortnite have featured an interrogation system where you can force a downed opponent to reveal their teammates’ locations. While reportedly still “in its early stages,” Tom Henderson claims that a similar interrogation system will be present in Warzone 2.

In his latest Warzone 2 report, Henderson described how “approaching downed enemies will show the ‘Interrogate’ prompt, of which your player carries out an execution-style animation to kill the player.” After the player is dead, their squad’s location will be revealed on the mini map.

The interrogation is apparently very similar to the current revive animation where you inject the player with a Stim — “or maybe it’s a truth serum.” This process will take around six seconds to complete, so it sounds like a high-risk maneuver.

Henderson said it was suggested to him by several people that it’s “more of an ‘add-on’ to the execution animations,” but he can’t guarantee whether or not it will make it into the full game.

Of course, it’s worth taking all of this information with a grain of salt. Assuming the leaks are true in the first place, internal plans change, and this could all be out of date by Warzone 2’s launch.

Best Krig 6 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3

Here are the right Perks, equipment, and attachments to make the best Krig 6 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 3.



Krig 6 in Warzone

The Krig 6 Assault Rifle can be extremely effective in medium-range combat with the right attachments, Perks, and equipment, so here’s the best Krig 6 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

There are plenty of powerful Assault Rifles to choose from in Warzone Pacific Season 3, and while the Krig 6 Assault Rifle isn’t one of the most popular weapons in the game, it’s capable of dishing out a ton of pain.

You can maximize this weapon’s potential in the game with the right attachments, Perks, and equipment. We’ll go over how you can make the best Krig 6 Assault Rifle loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

Best Warzone Krig 6 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 19.7″ Takedown
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag

We’ll start off this Warzone Krig 6 loadout with the Agency Suppressor muzzle and 19.7″ Takedown barrel to improve the bullet velocity and damage range. You can use the muzzle’s sound suppression to stay hidden from enemy minimaps.

We went with the Axial Arms 3x as our choice of optic because of its 3.0x magnification and mini-dot crosshair that allow you to accurately target the upper torsos and heads of distant enemies.

The Field Agent Grip will improve your vertical and horizontal recoil control, allowing for greater precision. Finally, the Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag will ensure that you’re carrying enough ammo to take down multiple opponents.

Best Perks to use with Warzone Krig 6 class

EOD Perk
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

For your first Perk, you should equip E.O.D to tank damage from an onslaught of explosives that enemies will throw your way. We recommend picking Overkill so that you can pair this gun with an SMG like the Owen Gun for close-range encounters.

For your final Perk, you should go with Amped to speed up the process of swapping between your weapons. The Semtex will allow you to dish out explosive damage, and the Stim will grant you a health boost.

How to unlock the Krig 6 in Warzone

You can get this done after a couple of hours of grinding. Once you’ve reached the required rank, you’ll be able to use the Krig 6 to cause some serious pain to your enemies.

Best alternatives to Warzone Krig 6

If you’re looking for great alternatives to the Krig 6, then the XM4 is the perfect pick following the buff it received in the May 4 update. Vanguard’s STG44 is another great choice because of its impressive damage, range, and bullet velocity.
