With Warzone Season 5, the developers brought on-demand texture streaming to console, a feature that had been available on PC for some time. Let’s get into the details for those who want to know what it is and how to turn it on.
Warzone Season 5 hasn’t just brought various weapon buffs and nerfs, as well as a patch, will a variety of changes. It also brought on-demand texture streaming to console.
This was a feature previously only available on PC, much like the FOV setting, but console players can now make use of it.
Warzone on-demand texture streaming
Essentially, on-demand texture streaming allows players to stream higher resolution textures into Warzone to improve the game’s fidelity. This will provide more color to textures and overall make colors pop more while playing Warzone.
This will also help you save some space on your hard drive, as the game will now be streaming these assets rather than having them stored on the database.
Activision themselves stated that the setting was introduced to “reduce the game’s overall package size by removing certain textures rarely used or encountered by players.” This is great, especially for those still running the game on base consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One, as these consoles don’t have much storage available.
As long as you have the bandwidth and 24GB free space on consoles to enable the feature, you might as well, as the Warzone on-demand texture streaming setting could improve your overall visual experience in the Call of Duty battle royale.
Turning this feature on is simple. Just go to the “General” tab in your settings while on the Warzone app. Then, under the “Details & Textures” section, you will be able to enable the setting and set the quality.
If you’re on a console, you can also set a daily limit for the setting so that it doesn’t draw too much internet bandwidth over time. Just press the square or X button depending on your console while on the Warzone on-demand texture streaming setting, and it allows you to do so.

NICKMERCS dominates enemies with the “fastest killing Warzone loadout ever”
NICKMERCS has revealed the “fastest killing” weapon loadout to dominate enemies in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.
Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has revealed the “fastest killing Warzone loadout” that allows him to annihilate his opponents quickly in Season 4 Reloaded.
Now, popular streamer Warzone streamer NICKMERCS has revealed a weapon loadout so powerful that it allowed him to score quick eliminations and dominate the opposition throughout the match.
After hopping into a game, NICKMERCS picked up the KG M40 Assault Rifle, and he was able to use it to secure kills insanely fast in medium and long-range engagements. He described it as the “fastest killing Warzone loadout ever.”
By the end of the match, he had secured 23 kills with the weapon and gave it high praise, claiming that it’s “so much better than the NZ ever was.” He also revealed the attachments he used in his KG M40 loadout.
NICKMERCS Warzone KG M40 loadout
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: VDD 22G Padded
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 8mm Klauser 60 Round Drums
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
- Perk 1: Brace
- Perk 2: On-Hand
NICKMERCS utilizes the VDD 22G Padded stock to give a boost to movement speed in his KG M40 Warzone loadout. This is extremely helpful for getting around the map or away from overwhelming gunfire.
The Krausnick 12V Stock, Hatched Grip, and M1941 Hand Stop brought the weapon’s recoil under control. NICKMERCS then used the magnification of the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x optic to pick off enemies in long-range combat.
To cap off this Warzone Pacific loadout, NICKMERCS equipped Brace to improve the accuracy of those initial shots when firing and On-Hand to reduce the downtime after using Equipment.
Using this KG M40 loadout will allow you to secure quick kills on Caldera, Rebirth Island, and Fortune’s Keep. So, be sure to try it out the next time you hop into Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

JGOD reveals secret Warzone attachment to drastically reduce recoil
JGOD has shared an underused attachment that can significantly improve your recoil control with weapons in Warzone.
Warzone expert JGOD has discovered a secret Warzone attachment that can dramatically reduce the recoil on weapons.
Reducing a weapon’s recoil is certainly something to consider when creating a loadout and JGOD has shared details about a secret Warzone attachment that can reduce your recoil by “30%,” so let’s get into the details.
First off, the attachment in question is the Bipod, which may seem like a surprise to many, as it has been in the game since the start but is severely underused.
Using the Bipod on your weapon will allow you to “shoot straighter,” which is ultimately what JGOD believes allows players to win gunfights in Warzone. Keep in mind that the attachment only reduces recoil when crouched, mounted, or prone.
Hitting your shots will give you a “faster TTK than somebody who just misses a bunch of bullets,” and so the Bipod helps greatly in that department.
JGOD does highlight the main con to using the Bipod, as he explains that you move “way slower” when crouched. That said when using the Bipod, as long as you focus on long-range engagements and positioning it shouldn’t be a problem. That’s certainly not a bad trade-off for “30% less recoil.”
JGOD says you can “pretty much use it (the Bipod) on any long-range meta build” by replacing the Underbarrel attachment you’re currently using, he also doesn’t recommend using it on SMGs as it reduces the sprint to fire time.

New Sniper Rifles coming to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 spotted in new trailer & screenshots
Call of Duty players have spotted a couple of the Sniper Rifles coming to both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
Sniping is a staple of Call of Duty, and players are desperate to know what Sniper Rifles they’ll be using to quickscope in Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer and snipe over distance in Warzone 2. Luckily, some gun buffs have spotted the upcoming Sniper rifles in the new trailer.
As we quickly approach Modern Warfare 2‘s October 28 launch, Infinity Ward are revealing more and more about the game. We’ve seen some campaign gameplay, but it’s not until September 15 that we’ll learn all about the multiplayer and Warzone 2.
However, alongside announcing that pre-orders grant early access to the campaign, the devs dropped a brand-new trailer and screenshots. This showed off some of the All Ghillied Up reimagining, but military buffs also spotted the brand-new Sniper Rifles coming to the game.
Modern Warfare 2 Sniper Rifles confirmed
CoD fans spotted that Captain Price is using the Barret MRAD in the screenshot from Modern Warfare 2‘s upcoming All Ghillied Up reimagining. Whether it will actually be called the Barret MRAD remains to be seen but the stock, bolt handle, and magazine housing are identical.
If Price is using this sniper to pick off targets at long range in the campaign, then it should be an excellent choice for Warzone 2.
Plus in the trailer, Soap is running the Remington MSR, which long-time Call of Duty fans will recognize from Modern Warfare 3. Some were quick to assume that Soap was holding the Intervention but no, it’s clearly the MSR.
The MSR was one of the best Sniper Rifles for quickscoping in MW3, so it could very well become the quickscoper’s choice.
