Warzone Season 5 is well underway, and players are discovering all the new changes that have been made to the game. However, this season’s ground loot has sparked a backlash from fans, who feel it is less useful than in previous updates.
Raven Software has made a number of major additions to Warzone in the latest update, with new POI’s to discover in the form of Mobile Broadcast Stations, and the tweaks to contracts and ziplines to help the game run smoothly. But ultimately, it’s the guns that will make or break each season.
Players spend hours experimenting and tailoring their loadouts to match the meta of the game. When you first land in Verdansk though, you’re totally reliant on the ground loot that you can find. However, with the start of Warzone Season 5, fans are unhappy with the state of the loot that is available to pick up, with some slamming it as “the worst it’s ever been”.
The Season 5 patch notes mentioned that the TEC-9 (BOCW) and EM2 (BOCW) would be added to the pool of loot spawning around the map. But players seem to be noticing that useful weapons are hard to come by early in the game, with “horrible” guns reportedly being the most common.
DMRs especially have been popping up around the map in Warzone Season 5, along with other slow-firing weapons like the Type 63. Automatic weapons, in general, have been scarce, and the ones that are there tend to have slow ADS.
Reddit users have posted expressing their frustration with the season’s ground loot. One claimed it was like the developers are “intentionally trying to make the game fail”, while another said they were “mocking” players.
Of course, an important part of a game of Warzone is earning enough money to purchase a custom loadout, but the current state of the loot on offer in the early stages appears to be making this difficult for players. The build of the weapons has also been under fire, particularly the thermal M60 that has been spawning frequently.
This comes after the ground loot in Season 4 was relatively well-received. Another Reddit user hailed last season’s offering as “phenomenal”, but said the new changes are “ruining” the early flow of games.
We’ll update you if and when Raven Software addresses the issues players are raising with ground loot in Warzone. In the meantime, check the latest news on the Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal event and all the new content available in the Warzone Season 5 Battle Pass.

Best Warzone Bullfrog loadout attachments
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
- Barrel: 7.4″ Task Force
- Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
- Ammunition: 65 Rnd
Our Warzone loadout will focus on improving the Bullfrog’s movement speed so that you can eliminate your foes quickly. First, we’ll apply the GRU Suppressor to boost the damage range and hide you from enemy maps when firing.
You can combine this with the 7.4″ Task Force barrel to maximize the amount of damage that this SMG is capable of dealing. The KGB Skeletal Stock lets you move at greater speeds when aiming down the sights and strafing.
Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout by equipping the 65 Rnd ammunition and Bruiser Grip to greatly increase your movement, strafe speed, hip-fire accuracy, and ensure you have enough ammunition to tackle full squads in Caldera.
Best Warzone Bullfrog Perks & Equipment
- Perk 1: E.O.D.
- Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost
- Perk 3: Combat Scout
E.O.D. will help you take less explosive damage from enemies when using the best Warzone Bullfrog loadout, which will help you stay in the fight longer and can be the difference between losing or winning a gunfight.

We recommend starting a loadout with Overkill for our second perk and then using a second loadout to switch to a loadout with Ghost equipped.
This will give you two of your favorite weapons, with the bonus of the Ghost perk that will keep you from being detected by UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.
Combat Scout lets you mark any enemies that you hit so that your whole squad can spot them. This Perk is extremely useful given Caldera’s landscape is full of trees and places to hide.
Most recent Bullfrog buffs and nerfs
The best Warzone Bullfrog loadout underwent a set of major changes in the September 23 update for Warzone Season 5. These changes nerfed the Bullfrog’s mobility by reducing different movement speeds. The unique SMG has not been addressed since.
The Bullfrog (BOCW) is a true jack of all trades. It has great Mobility, Effective Damage Range, Handling, and base Magazine Capacity – which would often act as a free Attachment. These changes, in conjunction with a Recoil bug fix, will bring the Bullfrog (BOCW) much closer to the competition.
You find these changes in detail below:
- ADS Speed decreased by 9%
- Movement Speed decreased by 1%
- ADS Movement Speed decreased by 2%
How to Unlock The Bullfrog
The Bullfrog is a bit of a grind to unlock for this Warzone loadout, requiring players to reach Level 43 in either Black Ops Cold War or Warzone Pacific.
Double XP Events and Double XP Tokens should help you on your journey and will unlock the best attachments quicker.

Warzone players call for Raven to steal exciting Apex Legends feature
Warzone players are calling for the developers to add a feature seen in Apex Legends to improve the player experience.
Warzone players are calling for Raven Software to add a certain feature to Warzone that is available to players in Apex Legends.
Although players were seemingly looking forward to the prospect of a new battle royale map for Warzone Pacific, there’s clearly a lot that players would like to see improve, with NICKMERCS recently sharing his opinion on the matter.
Now, players are calling for a feature from Apex Legends that may alleviate player frustrations when it comes to the map.
Reddit user duffwardo posed a question in the Warzone subreddit that asks: “Would adding timed map rotations into Warzone improve the game?”
The post has an image attached showing Verdansk ’84, the original Verdansk map, and Caldera side by side suggesting that these maps would be in rotation for the battle royale.
This is a feature that is already present in Warzone’s battle royale competitor Apex Legends. In Apex, battle royale maps rotate every hour or so to keep the game fresh and exciting.
This means that players aren’t just fighting in the same locations again and again, and they get to experience some variation when the map rotates. It seems this is something Warzone players would like as well, especially those who miss Verdansk, as one player in the comments wrote:
“That would be great so I could skip Caldera every time its in rotation, like everyone else would. Everyone wants Verdansk back.”
The major difference is that Apex Legends has four maps to rotate between and will sometimes take a map away for a whole season and then bring it back to make it feel even more refreshing.
Warzone really only has two maps, Caldera and Verdansk. As one comment points out, it may be pointless to have both Verdansk and Verdanks ’84 due to their likeness: “I see no point rotating between verdansk and verdansk 84, one or the other but preferably OG verdansk.”
This probably won’t be added to Warzone due to the sheer size that it would make the game, especially as it would likely cause even more bugs and issues than already present.
Perhaps this is something we will see for the reported Warzone 2, which is set to be a completely new battle royale game.
