Although the new SMG arriving during Season 6 is yet to be unveiled, new gameplay footage has leaked of the Warzone LAPA SMG showing off what it looks like in-game.
Despite all these new additions, players are still itching to see the LAPA SMG that is set to be released in season.
One player has managed to get their hands on the weapon early and even show off some gameplay.
There’s no shortage of great SMG options in Warzone Season 6, especially since FaZe Swagg showed off how powerful a particular AR can be when its attachments are tuned for close range.
YouTuber sebas789391 has even revealed new gameplay for the SMG early for players to see how the LAPA will look and feel in-game.
Although the video is short, it gives players a good idea of how the weapon will be, including its magazine size, rate of fire, and recoil pattern.
The base Warzone LAPA SMG will hold 30 rounds in a magazine, which isn’t too bad for an SMG’s base magazine. For Warzone, you will likely want to increase this, so we’ll have to wait for it to drop to see what kind of extended magazine attachments the weapon will have.
The rate of fire seems pretty fast as well, which is what you would expect from an SMG. The Iron sights look clean, although the sides of the weapon take up quite a lot of the screen.
The recoil pattern looks pretty simple, as it looks like it just goes up and to the left slightly. This LAPA seems like it could seriously contend with the other meta close-range weapon in Warzone Season 6, but, of course, we’ll have a better idea of that when it officially releases during the season as the main reward for The Haunting event.
As more is released and the weapon is officially out, we will be covering it all on Charlie INTEL, so make sure you stay tuned.

All Warzone Pacific Caldera POIs in real life: Capital, Resort, more
Warzone Pacific’s Caldera map appears to be inspired by several real life locations, so here’s every Caldera POI and its inspiration.
Similar to Verdansk, Warzone’s Pacific’s new Caldera map appears to be inspired by real locations from the Pacific and the Second World War. Here are all of the real-life locations that Caldera appears to be inspired by.
Many locations from Warzone’s original Verdansk map are inspired by real-life locations, such as the Stadium, Array, and Nakatomi Plaza. It appears that Raven Software has taken a similar approach with Caldera, plucking many of its POIs straight out of Hawaii.
- Caldera Capital IRL
- Caldera Peak IRL
- Caldera Terminal IRL
- Caldera Royale Cabana Resort IRL
- Caldera Shark’s Lair Submarine Pen IRL
Caldera Capital – Ali’iolani Hale
The Capital POI is clearly inspired by the Ali’iolani Hale building in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii.
The building has roughly the same shape as Caldera’s capital building, with the buildings and balconies being in the exact same place. Plus, it even has the same clock tower with a flag pole mounted on top.
Caldera Peak – Haleakalā Observatory
Caldera has much more elevation than Verdansk, and the highest point is marked by a “military battery installation” on top of a dormant volcano that appears to be inspired by the Haleakalā Observatory in Maui, Hawaii.
While not being an exact recreation, it’s likely that Haleakalā Observatory is a source of inspiration. The Observatory was built in the 60s but has a similar round shape and white color to Cladera’s Peak – plus it also lies on the summit of a dormant volcano.
Caldera Terminal – Ford Island Control Tower
Caldera’s airfield is overlooked by a tall control tower that bears a striking resemblance to the Ford Island Control Tower in Pearl Harbor.
Although not as tall or narrow, Caldera’s tower has the same red control room at the top, and platforms all the way up. Many Warzone players weren’t huge fans of Verdansk’s air traffic control tower, so hopefully, this is better received.
Caldera Royal Cabana Resort – Royal Hawaiian hotel
Warzone Pacific’s Royal Cabana Resort appears to be heavily inspired by the Royal Hawaiian hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Being similar in both shape and name, the Royal Cabana Resort has a similar bell tower to the Royal Hawaiian. We’ll need to wait until the map releases on December 8 to see if there are any more similarities.
Caldera Shark’s Lair Submarine Pen – Lorient Submarine Base
Caldera’s Shark’s Lair Submarine Pen, also included in Vanguard, is clearly inspired by the Lorient Submarine Base in Lorient, France.
This Submarine Base was used throughout the Second World War to harbor U-Boats, and it seems Raven Software has recreated it in the Pacific. It has almost exactly the same shape, with similar gunner mounts on top.

Forgotten MW SMG still top-tier in Warzone Season 6
Warzone players are looking to send Verdansk off with a bang and there’s no better way to do that than with this forgotten MW Submachine Gun.
Utilizing this forgotten MW SMG is sure to bring back memories of Verdansk’s early days before players shift to Warzone Pacific: Caldera.
With so much focus on which weapons are “meta”, some pretty powerful options are often overlooked. Call of Duty data expert TrueGameData recently discovered the resurgence of a forgotten MW Submachine Gun.
The weapon in question is MW’s AUG. The data suggests that the AUG is still a force to be reckoned with. The AUG’s fire rate may not be as quick as other weapons in its class, even so, it is certainly one of the hardest-hitting SMGs around.
The AUG had a brief moment of moderate usage as a weapon in Warzone until it disappeared altogether. With the TrueGameData loadout below the weapon can make a triumphant return.
If you’re looking to give the AUG a try you should know that it doesn’t feel like other Submachine Guns. The AUG is much less mobile and quick to fire than other MW Submachine Guns. This might throw you off for a match or two but once you get the hang of the AUG, you’ll be shredding in no time.
The loadout focuses on utilizing the AUG’s already amazing base damage capability. Accuracy, range, and damage may not be the first thing that comes to mind when using an SMG, but the AUG certainly brings these qualities to the table.
TrueGameData MW AUG Warzone loadout
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Optic: Solozero Optics Mini Reflex
- Magazine: 5.56 NATO 30-Round Mags
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
The 5.56 NATO 30-Round Mags might seem like a strange choice for a Warzone Submachine Gun. However, the Sleight of Hand perk will compensate for the below-average mag size.
This AUG can be utilized up close with a fantastic TTK or it could be used at greater distances. Thanks to the Solozero Optics Mini Reflex and Monolithic Suppressor, accuracy and damage range won’t suffer at medium range.
Of course, the Tac Laser is a Warzone staple as it boosts ADS speed and increases aiming stability.
Given that the AUG could perform well at medium range, this loadout is best complemented by a long-range rifle. In the video, TrueGameData opts for the Swiss K31. Use the AUG as sniper support and you’ll devastate Verdansk.

Warzone Pacific Caldera map introduces fascinating new use for Molotovs
Warzone Pacific’s map Caldera is almost here. The latest promotional video may have even hinted at a new use for Molotov Cocktails.
A new promotional video for Warzone Pacific Season 1 has revealed an interesting Molotov strategy that gives the equipment a new use.
The new update will be bringing many changes to Warzone. Although some are concerned about the Loadout Drop changes, many are excited for Warzone Pacific. As well as Gas Mask buffs, it seems the Molotov equipment will be getting a new use.
There’s been a lot of promotion for Warzone Pacific, with the official launch coming on December 8 for those with early access.
Players are excited to get to grips with the brand new map, Caldera, which is sure to have loads for players to discover.
We’ve had information on all the POIs that players will see, but a new promotion video posted by charlieINTEL on Twitter showed a “postcard from Caldera,” which may have hinted at a new use for the Molotov equipment.
Molotovs on Warzone Pacific Caldera map
Molotovs have always been pretty great. Players will often use them to get enemies out of corners or even finish off downed players. They set the floor ablaze which acts as a trap for some time so that players can block paths as well.
Despite all these utilizations, Caldera may be bringing a brand new use for them. In the postcard, some information is detailed about an unknown person arriving on Caldera. They say that they have “discovered a fun trick with Molotovs: throw ’em into water and they become smoke grenades! Highly recommend”
This can’t be confirmed until the map is out, but it would make sense considering the developers have intentionally decided to include it within a promotional video for the new map.
Further, the fact that the unknown character on Caldera is highly recommending that players try this makes it even more likely.
We’re unsure how strong this strategy will be, but it’s interesting that Caldera will be offering new gameplay mechanics like this. Could there be more hidden features for players to find upon release?
