The Season 2 Reloaded update increased player health in Battle Royale modes and this drastic change has altered the best weapons to use in Warzone when it comes to TTK.

After testing an increase to player health in Vanguard Royale, the Warzone devs revealed that the change would also make its way to BR modes when the two merged with the Season 2 Reloaded update.

Since the update went live on March 23, players have had some time to dissect the change and how it impacts gameplay. The new mechanic has resulted in a shift to the meta and new weapons have emerged as Warzone’s best thanks to their impressive TTK.

Thankfully, a Warzone expert has put together a video highlighting the most dominant weapons following the change.

For those who may have missed it in the Season 2 Reloaded patch notes, base Warzone health has increased from 100 to 150 in traditional BR modes. The devs implemented this change to balance gameplay and ensure that players don’t die too fast across Caldera.

With armor, players can now hit a maximum of 300 HP, which has had an impact on the weapon meta. As a result, weapons that can kill with fewer bullets are starting to stand out. JGOD already revealed that the weapons that deal high damage per shot will stand out following the update.

Best TTK weapons in Warzone after health buff

Warzone content creator and stats expert WhosImmortal has put together a list of weapons that are sure to excel in BR modes after the health increase. Most of these weapons boast fantastic damage per mag on top of a quick TTK.

You’ll notice some surprises such as the PKM LMG which makes the list and the Warzone expert claims that the stats don’t lie, “the TTK here is so close to the Bren and in many ways, it’s easier to use.”

The video focuses on highlighting weapons that offer impressive TTK over long-range. Some of the other weapons that stand out with the new shots to kill requirement include the Vargo 52, AK-47, CR-56 AMAX, and SVT-40.

We highly recommend checking out the full video embedded above, where you can find the ideal attachments and full loadouts for the best Warzone weapons following the health buff.

JGOD reveals Warzone’s best long-range weapons after Season 4 update

Warzone specialist JGOD has revealed his best long-range weapon picks following the Season 4 update that affected the meta.

Published

Call of Duty expert and Warzone extraordinaire JGOD has analyzed the many long-range weapon options and revealed the best guns to use following the Season 4 update.

Warzone devs are constantly working on balancing the battle royale’s pool of weapons through updates. Seasonal updates usually provide a ton of buffs and nerfs, which tends to leave the meta in an awkward state as players rush to adapt to the changes.

With Season 3’s dominant STG44 firmly out of the picture, new long-range options have emerged in Season 4. Luckily, Warzone expert JGOD is around to break down which weapons are viable in Season 4 following buffs and nerfs.

In JGOD‘s video highlighting the top long-range Warzone weapons after the Season 4 update, he breaks down the current state of the meta.

The stats expert clearly separates long-range options into three categories: meta, top tier viable, and viable. For the sake of breaking down the best long-range weapons, JGOD sticks to revealing the weapons he believes fit the meta and top tier viable categories.

He uses these categories to explain how the meta has changed since the Season 4 update. Prior to the update, the gap between the top meta weapons and top tier viable weapons was much larger.

Now, players can find a ton of success using top tier viable weapons: “You can use other things besides the absolute meta and not be hardcore penalized.”

According to JGOD, the NZ-41 is still the best long-range weapon in the game despite recent nerfs.

However, the expert predicts that another NZ-41 nerf should arrive soon enough, which will result in the long-range weapon meta becoming incredibly varied: “The nerf will come through again for the NZ and that will push it out and all these weapons that are top tier viable will essentially be the meta.”

Following the NZ-41, JGOD picks the BAR as the next best long-range weapon. Despite its slow fire rate, the BAR is one of the best long-range weapons in Warzone thanks to how easy it is to utilize.

The majority of JGOD’s video is spent highlighting top tier viable weapons that are set to benefit from an upcoming NZ-41 nerf: “You’re going to be able to use almost anything you want as soon as this next NZ nerf comes in.”

Aside from the NZ-41 and BAR, here’s the list of long-range weapons that players should use to maximize Warzone success:

If JGOD’s prediction is correct, it seems like the meta is heading in a very interesting direction throughout Season 4. Warzone players can expect to choose from a ton of viable options thanks to a level playing field.

One-shot Crossbow loadout to disrupt Warzone meta after Season 4 buff

After receiving a buff with the Season 4 update, the Crossbow could shake up the Warzone meta with a one-shot kill loadout.

Published

Warzone’s Crossbow has always been a tricky weapon to master, but a Season 4 buff has made it a dominant force capable of one-shot killing players with ease.

Modern Warfare’s Crossbow Marksman Rifle has been around since the inception of Warzone. The Crossbow is a unique weapon that has a steep learning curve, but even if players mastered the weapon, it never truly dominated Warzone lobbies.

All that is set to change in Season 4 after a major buff has upped the Crossbow’s bullet velocity by a whopping 27.2%. As a result, several Warzone players are now singing the praises of the unconventional weapon and tip it to shake up the meta.

Reddit user theGivvyOfficial posted a clip of their gameplay using the Crossbow to the Warzone subreddit. The montage is proof that with the right Crossbow loadout, the weapon can one-shot kill players from considerable distances.

The comments and discussion reveal that the title of the post is somewhat sarcastic, but there’s no denying that the Crossbow can be devastating in the right hands.

While it won’t necessarily be the number one meta weapon in Season 4, it has the potential to outperform some of the best medium-range options if players are looking to test out a different style of play.

Warzone Crossbow loadout attachments

  • Cable: 28-Strand Cable
  • Bolt: FTAC Fury 20″ Bolts
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand
  • Arms: XRK Thunder 200 Lb

This Crossbow loadout will thrive in the hands of accurate players. Thanks to the FTAC Fury 20″ Bolts that deal damage even after they hit their mark, the Crossbow produces one-shot kills consistently.

Of course, there’s no denying the weapon’s major weakness, and players were quick to point that out in the comments: “Yeah it’s s**** in close quarters combat. It’s decent for medium range engagements like you see in this clip, It also has a steep learning curve.”

If you miss your shot from a short distance, the weapon’s brutally slow reload can put you in an unfavorable position. However, if you learn to master the weapon and hit a high percentage of your shots, the sky is the limit for the Crossbow in Season 4.

Warzone players keep getting frozen in place by Fortune’s Keep’s broken areas

Certain areas of Warzone’s Fortune’s Keep map are proving deadly as players are getting completely frozen in place.

Warzone players love Season 4’s Fortune’s Keep map, but certain areas of the map are ruining the experience by completely locking players in place.

Warzone’s smaller Rebirth Island map has always been a hit, and Season 4’s Fortune’s Keep has emulated its success. Players love the bright Mediterranean color scheme, parkour spots, and dynamic gameplay.

However, a few frustrating issues have gotten in the way. Players are finding their way under the map and behind walls for cheap kills, and now players are getting trapped in place by broken spots on the map.

As we can see in the video from Reddit user Gerbytron, they went prone in a corner to hide from an Airstrike but ended up completely stuck in the corner. As they tried everything they could to wriggle free, the final opponent stumbled across them lying face-first into a wooden crate and quickly ended their suffering.

Several players took to the comments to confirm that this wasn’t a one-off, with another user confirming they also got stuck in the Watchtower at Fortune’s Keeps Winery POI.

illmatic_gg claimed that a street curb managed to trap them in place, and Evberkel has been caught in a window a couple of times. “I feel like [Fortune’s Keep] has a lot of spots like this that you just get stuck in,” explained ultra_zagan.

But there do seem to be a couple of ways that you can wrench yourself free from these broken spots. One user explained that using a Stim can release you, but said that it doesn’t always work. Plus, if you have a Self-Revive, you can down yourself with an explosive and then crawl away to self-res.

Raven Software have fixed issues like this, including the dreaded Buy Station freeze glitch, in the past, so hopefully, players won’t be getting trapped in place for much longer.

The next major update is Season 4 Reloaded, scheduled for late July, but there might be a few bug fixes and balance changes ahead of the mid-season update.
