Warzone players beg for stronger nerfs to “no recoil” FARA 83

Warzone’s FARA 83 has become the most popular choice for its extremely low recoil, and players feel its June 30 nerf wasn’t enough.

Although the June 30 patch has been reverted, Warzone players had a few hours to try out the nerfed FARA 83 and felt that there wasn’t enough done to rein in the extremely popular Assault Rifle.

Buffs to barrel attachments in Warzone Season 4 has catapulted the FARA 83 to the top of the pack. Although designed to be a long-range AR, with the right attachments, it has almost no recoil. Players of all skill levels favor it, with it being the most popular weapon in Season 4, hitting an almost 20% pick rate.

Raven Software were aware that the weapon was too easy to use, which has gone against their recent mission to raise the skill gap. So, they “slightly” increased the recoil on the FARA 83 in the June 30 update. That patch had to be reverted due to “ongoing issues,” but players had roughly nine hours to try out the nerf – and they were left disappointed.

Warzone players have complained that Cold War’s weapons are overshadowing Modern Warfare’s, in large part due to their almost non-existent recoil. Raven Software acknowledged this problem in the June 30 patch notes, saying that recoil was so low that there was “hardly any room left to master the control of these Weapons.” 

To combat this, the FARA 83 and C58 had their “recoil increased slightly” and several barrels had their recoil control feature nerfed. However, players don’t feel that this was enough to rein in the extremely popular FARA 83.

Reddit user singhthering posted a video of the FARA 83’s recoil post-nerf, saying, “The ‘nerf’ to the FARA 83 did absolutely nothing to it, we need more raven!”

In the accompanying video, we can see how easy it was to control the FARA’s simple recoil pattern. Some criticized the testing method, saying they’re too close to their target, but most agreed that the FARA still feels the same.

Warzone content creator JGOD echoed their sentiment, tweeting that he can definitely feel the recoil nerf on the C58, but the FARA “a little less so.” He concluded that “Both are still pretty easy to use at med-long range.”

Raven Software were actually aware that the FARA might still be powerful, adding in the patch notes that, “Even after these changes, we understand that there may still be incredibly effective and easy to control Weapons when enough Recoil Control is applied through attachments.”

Although Raven Software will be busy with fixing whatever issue caused the patch to be rolled back, they may be able to take on players’ feedback and give the weapons a further tweak before setting the update live again.

In the meantime, you can check out Season 4’s best Assault Rifle loadouts, as the weapons will remain just as powerful until the patch is reapplied.

Warzone expert reveals the “most overpowered” loadout for Season 3

Warzone expert WhosImmortal reveals his best loadout for Season 3 which possesses an “interesting” combination of weapons.

Popular Call of Duty: Warzone content creator WhosImmortal has shared what he believes is the “most overpowered” loadout for Caldera in Season 3.

With Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded going live soon, introducing some new content such as the Underground Transit System on Caldera, many may still be wondering what the best loadout is for Season 3.

Overkill is one of the most popular Perks in the game, but since the Snipers were drastically nerfed and are about to get worse with the Serpentine Perk, many have been wondering whether it is worth using.

Luckily, WhosImmortal has revealed his “most overpowered” loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 3 which doesn’t require Overkill.

The Primary weapon WhosImmortal has chosen for his most overpowered Warzone Pacific Season 3 loadout is the STG44.

The STG44 is obviously very dominant at the moment, as the content creator states that the “TTK is great, but the control is also great…which is why it’s essentially the best Primary in the game right now,” especially with these attachments:

  • Muzzle: MX Suppressor
  • Barrel: VDD 760mm O5B
  • Optic: G16 2.5
  • Stock: VDD 27 Precision
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Nerves of Steel
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The most interesting aspect of the loadout is the secondary, the AMP. WhosImmortal states that he usually uses the Owen Gun, which has been one of the most popular weapons in Warzone Season 3. However, for this loadout, he’s opting for the AMP from Black Ops Cold War, which is an interesting choice as it’s not a gun that’s associated with the meta.

The Warzone content creator states that it’s great for this loadout as a “pocket SMG,” and although it won’t kill as quickly as the Owen Gun, “it’s got great mobility and it can do well up close.”

WhosImmotal opts for the following attachments on his AMP in this loadout:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 6.4″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Magazine: STANAG 30 Rnd
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

The main benefit of running the AMP is that it’s a true Secondary, allowing players to choose a different Perk 2 such as Restock, Tempered, or even High Alert instead of Overkill. This means that players can focus on engagements much earlier without having to wait for their second Loadout Drop.

The Perks WhosImmortal has chosen for this loadout are:

  • Perk 1: Cold Blooded
  • Perk 2: Restock
  • Perk 3: Amped

Amped is important as it allows you to switch weapons faster to finish off kills when you’ve emptied a clip. Cold Blooded is a great counter for Combat Scout, and Restock keeps you loaded up on Equipment.

It’s definitely worth giving this loadout a try if you have the attachments to do so, as WhosImmortal was able to get his personal best in kills for Caldera with it.


If you’d like to try this loadout, but need to level up the STG44 or AMP, check out when the next Double XP event is to help you out.

What are High Value Loot Zones in Warzone Season 3?

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded introduces High Value Loot Zones, special areas that include powerful loot, rare items, and plenty of cash.

Warzone high value loot zones caldera

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded is set to be one of the most game-changing updates in recent memory, and the introduction of High Value Loot Zones may prove to be one of the biggest additions in the update. 

When you land in Warzone, the aim of the early game is to loot up. That means hunting for valuable ground loot, or opening supply boxes in the hopes of pulling out a high-rarity item. 

Because the early game is so crucial, many players like to drop in the same location every time. While the loot available in these POIs is never the exact same, it’s useful to find an area where a decent amount of loot spawns and head to that spot. 

With that in mind, Warzone developers Raven Software are trying to pry players away from landing in the same place repeatedly, and the arrival of High Value Loot Zones may just be the perfect way to do that.

What are Warzone’s High Value Loot Zones?

High Value Loot Zones are areas across Caldera that offer rare items and a ton of cash to players who decide to land there. These are designed as high-risk, high-reward areas as they’re likely to be contested by several players.

If you emerge victorious from the early engagements, the high-quality loot should set you up for success until the endgame. Players looking to utilize their Custom Loadouts as soon as possible will want to explore High Value Loot Zones.

Speaking with CharlieIntel, Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins explained that the team noticed a “real tendency to just keep dropping in the same location,” and these new High Value Loot Zones will encourage players to drop into new areas they may not have visited. 

“Now that we’ve got Redeploy Ballons, maybe you’ll rotate to one mid-game because you know there’s going to be more loot there, refreshing over time,” Timmins stated. “Equally, one of the things we hear a lot is players coming back from the Gulag feel like there’s not many places they can land and re-equip themselves.”

Where to find High Value Loot Zones in Warzone?

When players are launching into a match and look at their map, they will see that certain POIs have a dollar sign beside them, indicating that they are a High Value Loot Zone. 

These areas will have high-tier loot and plenty of cash for competitors to use to buy Loadouts or Streaks. 

During the wide-ranging interview with Timmins, the Senior Creative Director confirmed that the High Value Loot Zones would appear first as part of Operation Monarch and perhaps later on in Season 3. We now know that they’ll be making their way to Battle Royale playlists following the Season 3 Reloaded update.

With Warzone’s Operation Monarch event and its challenges wrapping up, Raven Software are bringing the Season 3 Reloaded update on May 25. This has already been considered one of the biggest updates Warzone’s ever seen, with it bringing the Underground Transit System to Caldera, the Serpentine Perk, new modes, and more.

Long-time Warzone players will recognize one of the new additions — the Redeploy Extraction Token. Here’s everything you need to know about this powerful new item, including what it does and how to get it.

Redeploy Extraction Tokens arrive in Caldera with Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, and grant players an “automatic redeploy without any need to visit the Gulag or to be bought back at a Buy Station.”

If a player dies with the Repeploy Extraction Token in their inventory, they’ll be immediately thrust back into the fight without their teammates needing to find a Buy Station to redeploy them.

The Token will deactivate once the Gulag closes in the endgame, but Raven confirmed that players who are still holding onto one will receive a cash prize as compensation.

Warzone’s Redeploy Extraction Tokens are an extremely rare find, being even rarer than the Legendary Gulag Entry Token.

Although rare, the Redeploy Extraction Tokens will be part of the standard loot pool so there’s all the more reason to keep looting chests once you’ve got your loadout.
