How to make Black Ops 1’s Galil in Warzone

An iconic Black Ops 1 weapon has been discovered in Warzone and here’s how to recreate the legendary Galil Assault Rifle in the battle royale. 

Published

Grav Galil loadout warzone

The Galil was one of the most used Assault Rifles in BO1, and many players have fond memories of the dominating AR. Now, one player has recreated the weapon for players to use in Call of Duty: Warzone.

When Modern Warfare 2 was released, people believed the Call of Duty franchise hit its peak. Little did they know the follow-up to MW2 would be one of the most beloved games in franchise history.

The first of the “Black Ops” series is fondly remembered for the innovation it brought to Call of Duty. Today, Black Ops titles are highly regarded amongst the Call of Duty community. Luckily for Warzone players, enjoying a blast from the past is as easy as making their very own Galil loadout.

Black Ops 1 Galil

The Galil loadout has been recreated by Call of Duty YouTuber TheKoreanSavage AKA K3. This is his latest throwback loadout in a series that includes MW2’s M4A1 and UMP45.

Players will need the Grav Art Deco blueprint to replicate the loadout. Although the weapon is an AR, it is best utilized as a medium to short-range weapon due to its lack of an optic. The attachments used also favor close-quarters gunfights.

Galil Warzone loadout attachments

Grav Art Deco blueprint Cold War
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor 
  • Barrel: 21.3” Task Force
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Magazine: 40 Rnd Speed Mag

The key combination of attachments for this Galil loadout is the Bruiser Grip and Raider Stock. Both of these attachments provide a huge boost to your movement speed. These two attachments effectively turn the Galil into a high-powered Submachine Gun

The Task Force Barrel adds a boost to range and damage ensuring that the weapon is still viable at medium distances. Meanwhile, the Agency Suppressor increases vertical recoil control. The weapon does kick upward when firing, making this an excellent choice for hitting targets that aren’t necessarily up close. 

Then we have the 40 Rnd Speed Mag which provides enough ammo to wipe players as a secondary weapon. Interestingly enough, when equipped on this Galil, the 40 Rnd Mag does not reduce aim down sight speed as it does with other Assault Rifles. 

It is important to note that this Galil loadout works best in tandem with a long-range Assault Rifle. Attach an optic to your main Assault Rifle and use the Galil for close-quarters combat. The unique iron sights on this weapon may not appeal to all players.

There you have it, Treyarch’s Black Ops 1 Galil is ready to go. Transforming Warzone’s Grav into the Galil we know and love is a must-try for long-time fans of the franchise. Take to the streets of Verdansk and reminisce about the Black Ops 1 days.

JGOD reveals Vanguard weapons you need to rank up before Warzone Pacific Caldera

Call of Duty expert JGOD has revealed the 10 weapons he think will make up Warzone’s meta when Pacific Caldera releases.

JGOD and Warzone Pacific

Warzone’s new Pacific Caldera map will release in a matter of days, and players are already thinking about a possible weapon meta. Call of Duty expert JGOD has been doing the same thing and picked out 10 weapons players should rank up before December 8.

Vanguard has now been out for almost a month, and players have been unlocking and ranking up weapons ever since. We already know that Vanguard’s weapons will be added to Warzone, meaning players can use them on the new Pacific Caldera map.

Warzone’s meta regularly changes, and we expect Vanguard Season 1 to bring an enormous change. Now, CoD expert JGOD has picked out 10 guns he thinks players should rank up before the update.

CoD Vanguard shipment gameplay

The YouTuber has used a few key characteristics to come up with this list: fire rate, ease of use, recoil, and magazine capacity to determine damage-per-mag. While some weapons may have a great time-to-kill, they may fall short in one of the sections above.

JGOD mostly picked out SMGs as weapons to level up, as their fast rate of fire makes them extremely viable. Of course, some assault rifles also made the list, while he also picked out some LMGs to use too.

JGOD’s 10 Vanguard weapons to level up for Warzone

The 10 Vanguard weapons you need to level up are:

  • Automaton
  • Volk
  • PPSH-41
  • Sten
  • M1928 Tommy
  • Type 100
  • MG42
  • DP27
  • Type 11
  • G-43
  • 1911
  • Machine Pistol

In terms of weapons that JGOD would prioritize, the Automaton seems like a good shout to become a meta weapon, as it has a high rate of fire, low recoil, and the biggest magazine size in its class.

Of course, we’ve seen in the past that guns that do well in multiplayer don’t necessarily perform in Warzone, so be prepared to see a shock weapon dominate the meta.


In the meantime, check out our best Vanguard guns ranked list to make sure you’re using the most powerful weapons in the game.

How to make Modern Warfare 2’s M4A1 in Warzone

A timeless Modern Warfare 2 weapon has been remade in Warzone and here’s how to recreate the iconic M4A1 Assault Rifle in the battle royale. 

Published

on

Warzone M4A1 MW2

The M4A1 was a very popular Assault Rifle in MW2, and many players will recall just how devastating the AR could be in the right hands. Now, one player has recreated the weapon for players to use in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Modern Warfare 2 is often recalled as one of the best Call of Duty games of all time. Players love to reminisce about the glory days of MW2’s incredible Multiplayer. Its legacy lives on in modern Call of Duty games as we’ve seen the return of the elevator glitch in Vanguard

You can now join in on the nostalgia by making your very own M4A1 loadout. Although it isn’t necessarily the most powerful weapon in Warzone, enjoying this blast from the past is a worthwhile experience. 

MW2 M4A1 loadout

The M4A1 loadout has been recreated by Call of Duty YouTuber TheKoreanSavage AKA K3. This is the one and only M4A1 class you should have your eye on.

The M4A1 excels as a medium-range Assault Rifle. Don’t expect to be too accurate at long distances with its unique iron sight. Aiming down sight with this loadout is surely going to bring back memories. 

M4A1 Warzone loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor 
  • Barrel: Corvus Custom Marksman 
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mags

Interestingly enough, Modern Warfare’s M4A1 shares the same name as the MW2 weapon K3 replicates in Warzone. The one vital aspect to remember is that you must own and select the OG blueprint of Modern Warfare’s M4A1.

For starters, the Monolithic Suppressor is a must-have on most Assault Rifles in Verdansk. The Suppressor will give this weapon an added boost when firing at long distances. 

The Tac Laser is yet another standard Warzone attachment in that it improves ADS speed and firing stability. The 50 Round Mags will ensure you can down and wipe targets with ease.

Modern Warfare OG blueprint

The Corvus Custom Marksman Barrel will diminish your movement speed a little but this is a fair tradeoff for added range, recoil control, and bullet velocity. These traits are customary for Assault Rifle loadouts. 

Along the same lines, the Commando Foregrip Underbarrel will add further stability when firing. Recoil stabilization and aiming stability will ensure this weapon shoots as straight as possible. 

There you have it, Modern Warfare’s M4A1 has been transformed into the MW2 version. Revisiting weapons from past Call of Duty games is always a blast. Running this loadout in Verdansk is sure to bring back some fond memories.
