Warzone menu teases potential changes to Dam location

Published

on

If you haven’t noticed the new main menu in Modern Warfare and Warzone, it shows a dam that’s broken.

The new main menu now shows the dam that’s overflowing and starting to release water. The current dam in Warzone is frozen and no water is really in the map at all right now.

There has not been any changes to the Warzone map since it launched on March 10. So far, there’s only been weapon adjustments and other loot based changes to it.

But we’re sure Infinity Ward is planning some sort of map changes as the game evolves and continue to get new content, and changes to the dam could be coming.

Stay tuned.

Warzone pro 100T Tommey says Custom Games don’t work for competitive

Professional Warzone player, Tommey, takes to Twitter to comment on Warzone tournament formats.

Published

Professional Warzone player “Tommey” took to Twitter to talk about his take on the competitive Warzone format.

Competitive Warzone has traditionally consisted of a “kill race” format, where players randomly queue into a duo, trios, or quads game over and over again in an attempt to have the highest squad kill record in a set time frame. It’s interesting to watch and a great formula for the cameras. It sparks the interests of millions of viewers and makes for some great highlights.

Due to this format, there has always been a demand for a private Warzone match format for these tournaments, where Warzone pros can all face each other in a single game, where the winner takes all.

This would be an interesting experience for viewers, and would allow for tense moments between content creators and professional players. However, for the pros, it might not be as much of an enjoyable experience.

When 100 Thieves player, Tommey, came across a tweet from Cloudfuel regarding this topic, he took to a Twitter thread to respond.

Tommey referred to Warzone as “easy to play”, and “not great for competition,” citing the lack of advanced mechanics when compared to games like Fortnite.

The basis of his argument derives from this, which is a fair point to make. However, games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and H1Z1 (when it was still relevant) had private servers for large competitions.

While there is an argument to be made for private matches, Tommey makes a fair point. In terms of competitive integrity, if professional players get in a large server, it might become a slow Warzone game. Frustration will arise quickly among players since most of the winners will be those who are better positioned when the circle begins to close.

While the games may be tense, the engagements will be scarce and players will feel like the game feels more “random” than skillful.

In terms of entertainment value, kill races are the more exciting events to watch. If a content creator is eliminated, they find another game to play and try again. If it happens in a private Warzone tournament format, the streamer can’t play the game and may quickly become bored; thus, viewers will feel less engaged with the event.

While the kill race format will most likely be the competitive Warzone formula in the future for many reasons, it still would be great to occasionally see a custom games format on occasion with top talent. Perhaps there is some ruleset or game type to support the format in a proper way that’s fun for viewers and competitors.

Most popular CoD Warzone loadouts in November

Stats have revealed the most used weapons and attachments in Warzone for November 2020, with some surprising results.

Published

on

A website has compiled November’s most used loadout weapons and attachments in Warzone.

Although Black Ops Cold War launched on November 10, Warzone has remained one of the most popular shooters on the market.

As new updates are released, the Warzone META keeps changing. For a while the Grau 5.56 was king, then we had the Bruen, but now most agree that the Kilo 141 and Dragons Breath R9-0 are the best.

Website Lootshare allows you to see what the most used weapons and attachments are in Warzone.

November’s top five weapons and their attachments are as follows:

1. Kilo 141

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8” Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

2. MP5

  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

3. Grau 5.56

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

4. Kar98k

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

5. CR-56 AMAX

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: ZRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags

From this data, we can see how popular the Monolithic Suppressor is. This silencer keeps you off the mini-map while increasing your effective damage range, two valuable stats in Verdansk. It’s also to be expected that the Kilo 141 and MP5 are the most used weapons.

Some of the results are surprising compared to what high profile players use, however. The Grau 5.56 hardly gets used in competitive Warzone since its nerf, but it’s clear from this data that it has remained a fan-favorite.

You also wouldn’t expect the R9-0 to only be in 12th place, considering how many streamers and content creators talk about it. Perhaps it’s only common in the highest skill-based matchmaking bracket, which the majority of skilled streamers play in.

When Black Ops Cold War and Warzone integrate on December 10, we’re likely to see this list change. The AK-47, AUG, and Krig 6 have already become extremely popular in the new game, so we’ll have to wait and see how they fit in with Warzone’s META.

We’ll also make a list of December’s most popular loadouts and see where Cold War’s weapons stack up.
