Call of Duty fans have been calling for the Warzone developers to add a ranked mode into the battle royale for ages, and perhaps the new Iron Trials ’84 mode is precisely what they want.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded not only shifted the weapon meta with various buffs and nerfs but also provided some new game modes to try.

Apart from Clash, which didn’t go down too well with the community, mainly as it replaced fan-favorite mode Plunder, players have been gifted with the Iron Trials ’84 mode, which some are enjoying so much that they are suggesting it stay in the game permanently.

For the longest time now, Warzone players have been begging the developers to implement a rank mode similar to Apex Legends. Although Warzone doesn’t have a true ranked mode just yet, players are claiming the new Iron Trials mode could become Warzone’s version of it if it stays permanently.

Popular streamer CouRageJD put a post up on Twitter expressing this opinion, saying: “I’ve been EXTREMELY critical of Warzone lately, but… Iron Trials ‘84 is AWESOME.”

The streamer loves that the new mode is challenging and rewards gun skill and teamwork. The popular content creator has recently been playing more Apex Legends due to its detailed and addictive ranking system.

However, if Warzone can expand on Iron Trials, they might attract those who enjoy ranked modes back to the game.

Further, those in the community are also loving it, as Reddit user orderabi also stated that the new Iron Trials mode would work great as a permanent ranked playlist for Warzone:

“Iron Trials ’84 is the BEST LTM & should stay as Ranked Mode!”

The post details a lot about the new mode, but the main gist is that Iron Trials make changes to the positive game and influence great gameplay that players would love in a ranked mode.

The user also feels that this mode as a permanent ranked playlist will make the casual Verdansk much more forgiving for those looking to play casually, allowing the sweaty players to grind out a ranked mode.

Hopefully, the developers can continue listening to the community and implement a rank mode in the Call of Duty: Vanguard integration with Warzone or keep Iron Trials ’84 permanently in the Call of Duty battle royale.

How to level up Warzone weapons fast in Vanguard Zombies Shi No Numa

Here’s how you can use the Shi No Numa Zombies map to level up Warzone and Vanguard weapons extremely fast.

Vanguard’s guns have a whopping 70 levels to grind through, but luckily, there’s a way to use the Shi No Numa Zombies map to level up weapons incredibly fast. Here’s everything you need to do.

Both Vanguard and Warzone players have been extremely critical of how long it takes to level up a weapon, especially with how often the meta changes. Vanguard’s Zombies mode is a care-free way to level up your weapons, and Season 4’s Shi No Numa has made this process even faster.

Thanks to a cheeky spot found in Shi No Numa, players can level up their Vanguard and Warzone guns extremely quickly, and here’s how.

Level up Vanguard & Warzone weapons fast in Shi No Numa

Vanguard Zombies players can find their way to a glitch spot that allows them to quickly kill Zombies and achieve high rounds without taking any damage, leveling up their chosen weapon extremely fast.

Thanks to YouTuber DWAE, here’s how to level up your guns fast in Vanguard Zombies Shi No Numa:

  1. Save up 2,000 points in Shi No Numa’s spawn room
  2. Go down the stairs and past the Flogger Trap to the Fishing Hut
  3. Head to the bridge
  4. Jump on top of the railing
  5. Go prone and crawl inside one of the posts
  6. Zombies will surround you but won’t attack, so you can keep meleeing them to rack up kill after kill

To ensure that you’re dealing as much melee damage as possible, you should try to get your hands on the Bloodlust Covenant. This will increase your melee damage, allowing you to quickly batter your way through wave after wave of the undead, leveling up your weapon as you go.

This strategy can bring you to incredibly high rounds of Shi No Numa, but beware of Boomshreiers, as they can still damage you when you’re in this spot.

This is clearly unintended, so it’s highly likely that Treyarch will patch it out in a future Vanguard update. Season 4 Reloaded is scheduled for late July, but there should be some smaller updates over the next few weeks.

Warzone players beg Raven to reverse “stupidest” Loadout change ever

Warzone Pacific players are calling for Raven Software to reverse the “stupidest” change ever to weapon Loadouts.

Published

on

Warzone Operators and Loadout drop

Warzone Pacific players are frustrated by the Loadout selection changes in the game and are calling for Raven Software to reverse them in a future update.

Before Warzone Pacific Season 4 arrived, the Loadout Drop selection would hover over your previously selected choice and this would allow you to select your ideal Loadout in the pre-game lobby right away.

However, Raven Software felt that too many players were accidentally selecting the wrong loadouts so they made a major change to Loadout picking in the Season 4 update. Now, players are begging the devs to reverse this change.

Warzone players fighting beside loadout drop

In Warzone Pacific Season 4, when you open the Loadout Drop selection, the cursor always starts at the top of the Loadout Drop selection list, so you might end up picking your first Loadout rather than your preferred one.

Reddit user ‘Putridzzz’ expressed their frustration with this in the Warzone Pacific subreddit, claiming that it’s making them pick the wrong Loadouts and describing the change as extremely “stupid.”

The Redditor stated: “It’s ridiculous that even setting a Loadout to your “Favorite Loadout” still makes you pick your first Loadout. I have to scroll through all the Loadouts to pick the right one.”

Many of the commenters agreed that this change is irritating as it causes players to accidentally pick the wrong Loadout or spend time scrolling through the list looking for their favorite one in every game.

One user claimed that the biggest problem is that you’re unable to select your preferred weapon loadout quickly because you need to go down to the middle of the list. They then added that this change makes picking your guns in the pre-game lobby feel pointless.

A few users suggested that the developers make a change that allows them to rearrange their Loadouts without having to build them from scratch. This would make it easier to quickly pick your favorite loadouts in the game.

According to one commenter, the addition of a “Switch spots” option instead of “copy and replace” would be beneficial since it would let you move your desired Loadout to the top instead of having to remake one.

After players first slammed this change, Raven Software’s Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins responded to these complaints on Twitter, reassuring the community that they would get used to it.

Despite this, discontent continues over this change, and it remains to be seen whether or not the developers will implement another major tweak that will allow players to immediately select their favorite weapon Loadouts.

Warzone Pacific Cold War AK-47 loadout

The Cold War AK-47 is one of Warzone’s most reliable Assault Rifles, and here are the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment for the best Cold War AK-47 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Assault Rifles are a staple of the Call of Duty series, and while the Warzone Pacific Season 3 meta was dominated by weapons like STG44, the Season 4 update has brought other long-range weapons into the spotlight.

One of these is the Cold War AK-47 which Call of Duty expert JGOD believes is one of the best Assault Rifles that you can use. You can make it even deadlier with the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Here’s the best Cold War AK-47 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Best Warzone Cold War AK-47 loadout attachments

Best Cold War Ak-47 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20” Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd

Our Cold War AK-47 loadout for Warzone Pacific starts off by improving the weapon’s damage range, vertical recoil control, and bullet velocity with the GRU Suppressor and 20” Spetsnaz RPK Barrel.

The Spetsnaz Grip will give a further boost to the Assault Rifle’s recoil control, and you can then take advantage of the improved accuracy by picking off distant enemies with the help of the Axial Arms 3x optic.

Finally, we’ll cap off the loadout with the 45 Rnd magazine to ensure that we have plenty of ammo to take down multiple enemies. With these attachments, the Cold War AK-47 will be a powerhouse weapon.

Best Perks and Equipment to use with Warzone Cold War AK-47 class

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

We recommend equipping E.O.D as your first Perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage from grenades and thermites. You can select Overkill to pair the weapon with a close-range option like the Marco 5 SMG.

The Amped Perk will allow you to swap between your two weapons instantly. In terms of Equipment, the Semtex is a great choice for your lethal as you can use it to dish out additional damage while the Stim will give you a health and speed boost.

How to unlock the Cold War AK-47 in Warzone

To unlock this AK-47 for Warzone use, you’ll need to reach Level 7 in either Warzone or Black Ops Cold War, which can be done in no time at all.

Just hop into a few games and start grinding out your skillset until you get your hands on this powerful Assault Rifle.

Best alternatives to Cold War’s AK-47 in Warzone

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the Cold War AK-47, then you should try out the best Cooper Carbine Warzone loadout which is extremely easy to handle during medium and long-range gunfights.

Weapons like the KG M40 and AS44 have also risen in the meta following the NZ-41 nerfs, so be sure to try those out during medium-range combat situations as well.
