Stun grenades have always been powerful tools in Call of Duty: Warzone. However, players have recently begun to call again for these tactical items to be nerfed significantly, heading into Season 4 of the Call of Duty battle royale.
There are various tactical items that players can use when they are battling it out in Warzone. One of these tactical items is the stun grenade, which allows players to slow their enemies down by a heavy degree and impede their movement greatly.
However, a recent clip that has been going around in the Warzone community has community members calling for Raven Software to apply a heavy nerf to stun grenades for Season 4, as they believe stun grenades are currently too strong in Warzone.
The clip that has brought the discussion of the power of stun grenades currently was posted to the official Warzone subreddit by community member Barbowa_.
In the clip, Barbowa_ effectively takes down multiple enemy players without much trouble at all on Rebirth Island when he rushes them after throwing a couple of stun grenades at them from downstairs.
The potent effect of the stun grenades was in full view, as the enemy players were effectively moving in slow motion, making them sitting ducks for Barbowa_ who was able to mow them all down without breaking much of a sweat.
Considering the player themselves titled the clip “These stuns be OP!” and other community members commented on the video stating how they believe that the Warzone stun grenades need to be nerfed heavily, it is safe to say that changes to the overall strength of this tactical item are something players want to be addressed soon.
It remains to be seen if Raven Software will indeed nerf the stun grenades sometime in the future.
Still, past changes for the Call of Duty battle royale game have resulted from community members voicing their desires publicly, so it would not be surprising to see a nerf for the stun grenade tactical item arrive in the game at some point.

What can I buy with COD Points?
Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.
A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.
Vanguard and Warzone Pacific are currently in Season 1 at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.
It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 1, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough CoD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.
You can buy the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:
- Purchase it from the Official Call of Duty website
- Buy it from the in-game store on your respective platform
The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.
The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.

JGOD reveals fastest “TTK” Welgun loadout that beats the MP40
JGOD has revealed his best class setup for the Warzone Welgun when it comes to TTK, claiming it even outperforms the MP40.
Warzone Pacific has a lot of stellar options for close-quarters combat, however, JGOD claims this Welgun loadout is built for a fast TTK, edging it over the MP40 in the meta.
With the mid-season update for Warzone Pacific, players were gifted a brand new SMG, the Welgun. Since its introduction, the Welgun has been a great option for players looking to use a long-range SMG.
Having said that, there are many ways players can change the Welgun, and JGOD has revealed the loadout you’ll need to make the Welgun an even more efficient TTK SMG than the MP40.
According to JGOD’s latest video, the Welgun has the potential to beat the MP40 in terms of TTK with the correct attachments. This is pretty impressive, especially as the MP40 has been one of the best SMGs in the game for a while.
One thing that JGOD makes clear is that you will need to hit your chest, neck, and headshots in order to get the most out of the Welgun.
Here’s JGOD’s best TTK loadout for the Warzone Welgun.
JGOD’s Welgun loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: 120mm Gawain Short
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: Gawain Skeletal
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 9mm 64 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Incendiary
- Rear Grip: Taped Grip
- Perk 1: Frenzy
- Perk 2: Quick
First off, JGOD has opted for the Recoil Booster to increase the weapons fire rate and overall TTK in close combat. Then we have the 120mm Gawain Short barrel which JGOD recommends highly for those who want to use the weapon in tight spaces.
The Slate Reflector, M1941 Hand Stop, and Taped Grip will all help the weapon’s recoil, allowing you to control the massive 9mm 64 Round Mags you will be unloading onto enemies, as well as balancing the negative initial firing recoil you’ll get with the Gawain Skeletal stock.
The Incendiary ammo type will keep enemies burning after you lose their sight, which is so useful in close combat situations, especially as the negative bullet velocity won’t do much to stop you in close quarters.
Lastly, we have Frenzy for the first Perk and Quick for the second. Frenzy will keep your health at the max while taking down enemies, which combines nicely with Quick which will allow you to move fast and keep the enemy second-guessing your location.
Well there you have it, that’s JGOD’s best Welgun loadout for a faster TTK than the MP40. If you’re looking for a long-range LMG, check out our best Type 11 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1.

How to fix Warzone crashing & freezing issues on Xbox
Warzone has suffered a number of issues since the Pacific update on Xbox, so here’s how to stop it from crashing and freezing.
Xbox players have been suffering from game-breaking crashing and freezing errors since Warzone’s Pacific update, but one simple solution can fix many of the issues.
Warzone Pacific Season 1 brought many changes the community was looking for, adding a brand-new map, a working anti-cheat, and removing Stopping Power once and for all. However, it’s also brought some of the worst glitches Warzone has ever seen, particularly on Xbox.
Luckily, there’s a simple solution that should lessen the amount of freezing and crashing issues you’re experiencing.
How to stop Warzone crashing & freezing on Xbox
To stop Warzone from crashing and freezing, don’t hit the Xbox home button while the Warzone application is open.
We recommend creating an Xbox Party before launching Warzone and then using Warzone’s Social tab to invite your friends to games.
This solution comes directly from Raven Software’s Trello board, where they acknowledged that “Players are reporting an issue where pressing the Xbox home button twice while in-game may cause instability.”
Raven said that the issue is caused by players hitting the Xbox home button twice, but many players have reported that issues crop up by pressing it once. So we recommend steering clear of the Xbox button and not pressing it at all.
Whether this will fix the issue where players can’t launch the game at all remains to be seen, but it should help out players who suffer from freezing and crashing while playing.
Raven Software has confirmed they’re investigating a number of Xbox Warzone glitches such as pressing the Xbox button, performance issues, and Xbox players’ Rebirth Island wins not tracking.
The next major Warzone update will be Season 2 in February, so hopefully, this update brings many much-needed fixes.
