According to Activision’s Art Lead, Call of Duty: Warzone won’t see any changes to its engine when it merges with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Activision’s Art Lead posted the info on ResetEra, a popular gaming forum, when asked about how the overall game will shift with the integration to the new title.
In the forum, someone commented asking how the engine shift will occur and what impact would it have on the game. Fans have been waiting for news on what to expect, as Modern Warfare’s engine is quite different in how it feels compared to Black Ops Cold War.
The Art Lead ‘ShutterMunster’, who is a verified poster on the forum as “Art Lead @ Activision”, says, “There will not be an engine shift for WZ.”
This means that Warzone will remain on Infinity Ward’s new engine, while Black Ops Cold War MP experience will be on Treyarch’s engine. What this means for next-gen features and support is yet to be announced.
Activision revealed during the company’s investor call on October 29 that Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War will take place in December. December will see Black Ops Cold War’s first season of content as well.
“And starting with first season of in-game content in December, Black Ops Cold War will be integrated into Warzone,” said Activision Blizzard President & Chief Operating Officer Daniel Alegre. “We’ll bring Black Ops Cold War characters and weaponry into the free to play experience, along with substantial new content ensuring that Warzone remains both the terrific experience and a powerful on-ramp for the franchise’s premium content.“
Warzone and Black Ops Cold War will become integrated across progression, Battle Pass, and store content in December, when the game shifts away from Modern Warfare.
In addition, it was revealed that both Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare loadouts and Operators will remain useable in Warzone, even after the shift. Players will be able to pick between Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare loadouts when dropping into Warzone in December.
“Now players can of course continue to use their Modern Warfare content in Warzone once Black Ops launches,” said Activision President Rob Kostich. “And as a result, one cool feature players will see is that they’ll be able to choose either their Black Ops loadout or their Modern Warfare loadout in Warzone for their gameplay. And this is just one example of how Warzone’s gonna expand and evolve overtime.”
More information on the game’s feature set to be announced soon. Stay tuned for the latest information on Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13 with Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies.

Best FARA 83 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 3
Season 3 of Warzone saw some major changes be made to the Fara 83 that will have players wanting to use its best possible loadout.
The FARA 83 Assault Rifle is one of the weapons that got major changes in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3, and you can make it a formidable force by using its best loadout.
Players will notice that the Season 3 update for Warzone made some major changes to a variety of weapons, including the powerful FARA 83. This assault rifle is based on the Galil and can deal some serious damage to its targets.
After you’ve unlocked it, you can equip a few select attachments and perks to make the weapon an absolute powerhouse during combat. Here is the best FARA 83 Assault Rifle loadout and class setup for Warzone Season 3.
Best Warzone Season 3 FARA 83 loadout
The FARA 83 has an impressive rate of fire, high damage profile, and incredibly precise accuracy that makes it extremely deadly. Our loadout will boost these strengths while improving upon the recoil, effective damage range, and overall speed.
Best Fara 83 attachments
- Muzzle: Gru Suppressor
- Barrel: 18.1″ Takedown
- Laser: None
- Optic: None
- Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
- Underbarrel: Foregrip
- Ammunition: Spetsnaz 50 Rnd
We’ll start this loadout with the Gru Suppressor, which will help you avoid enemy detection on their radars, while also drastically increasing the damage range of this assault rifle. This will allow you to dish out heavy amounts of damage at further distances.
The 18.2″ Takedown Barrel will improve both the Assault Rifle’s effective damage range. This helps prime the weapon for mid to long-range combat where you need to pick off enemies from a distance by having the largest damage increase of all of the gun’s available barrels.
You can use the KGB Skeletal Stock to increase your sprint to fire speed, ADS firing move speed, and aim walking movement speed to help you aim and fire with incredible speed which is perfect for close to mid-range combat scenarios.
The foregrip will give you the biggest boost in accuracy when it comes to the underbarrel attachments and will help you land more of your shots than without it.
We’ll complete this loadout by equipping the Spetsnaz 50 Rnd Mag so that you can take advantage of the weapon’s incredible fire rate and have enough ammo to take down multiple enemies before having to reload.
Best perks for Warzone FARA 83 class
You can combine a few useful perks with these attachments so that you’re prepared for anything that match will throw at you. You’ll be able to handle most surprises that you encounter in Warzone by selecting these.
Perk 1 – E.O.D
It doesn’t matter how skilled you are if you’re caught off-guard by foes carrying explosives. Other players will attempt to blow you up while you’re in a good position during battle, so you’ll want to equip E.O.D to survive.
This perk allows you to tank huge amounts of explosive damage while you have your armor equipped. While you’ll mostly be fighting in medium to long-range combat situations, it still helps to be prepared for any surprises.
Perk 2 – Overkill
Warzone matches can have a variety of different tactical requirements, so you can equip this perk which allows you to select two primary weapons from any category. This means that you’ll be able to keep guns that are ideal for different situations.
Perk 3 –Amped
In case an enemy is able to sneak up on you in close quarters, you’ll want to swap to your secondary weapon before they have a chance to eliminate you. This perk makes switching weapons almost instant, which can be the difference between victory and defeat.
That covers our class setup for this powerful AR. We also recommend carrying some Semtex grenades to dish out explosive damage C4 to enemy vehicles. The Heartbeat Sensor can help you detect nearby foes, so you can strategize better.
How to Unlock the Fara 83 in Warzone Season 3
You can unlock this assault rifle by getting 2 headshots kills in 15 different matches while using assault rifles in Cold War Multiplayer or Warzone. Players can also unlock this assault rifle by going into Black Ops Cold War Zombies and killing 30 or more enemies consecutively without getting hit 25 times.
Once you do either of these challenges, you will have the weapon available to use in the popular Call of Duty battle royale.
Alternatives to Best Fara 83 Warzone Season 3 Loadout
The FARA 83 is now one of the most impressive weapons in Warzone following the Season 3 update. However, there are other powerful loadouts that are available for players to use in this new period of content like PPSH, Swiss K31, and Grau that are more than suitable alternatives.

Cold War’s Dark Aether camos & Gunsmith Customs coming soon to Warzone
Players looking to use their Dark Aether camos in Warzone are in luck, as support is coming.
Raven Software has confirmed that Black Ops Cold War’s Dark Aether camos and Gunsmith Customs will be making their way to Call of Duty: Warzone.
For Black Ops Cold War Zombies players, the Dark Aether camo is a true mark of skill and perseverance, with players tasked with unlocking every skin for every weapon, in every class.
After going through all that effort, it’s no surprise that players wanted to be able to rock their Dark Aether camos in Warzone, something that so far has been impossible.
However, the studio’s creative director Amos Hodge has confirmed that the team is hard at work on bringing support for Dark Aether camos to Call of Duty: Warzone.
Treyarch first promised that support for these camos would arrive back in their Season 1 announcement blog post, but information on introduction has been minimal every since.
Raven has finally confirmed they plan to bring official support for Dark Aether camos to Warzone, but admitted that the studio would need more time to make it happen.
Hodge explained that there is “a lot of work” still to be done in bringing Cold War’s Zombies camos to Warzone weapons because of the differences in how some weapons look and feel once those camos are applied.
Raven also has confirmed they want to bring support to create and use Black Ops Cold War Gunsmith Customs weapons into Call of Duty: Warzone. Currently, Warzone only supports the feature with Modern Warfare weapons.
Hodge stated that the team “will get there” with these features but more time is needed to ensure they’re brought to life.
Unfortunately, Hodge didn’t provide a release date or a timeline for these features, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as the information becomes available.
