Warzone players call for fan-favorite MW2 Sniper to be added

The Sniper-loving Warzone community are asking the developers to add a classic sniper from the classic world of Modern Warfare 2.

Warzone players are calling developers to add a fan-favorite sniper from MW2, but with the Vanguard integration coming soon, it’s not looking hopeful.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded has many strong options for Snipers, from the highly reliable Kar98k to the long-distance HDR. Those who love the one-shot one-kill playstyle are truly spoiled.

Although Snipers may not be the best option for Warzone’s Iron Trials mode, players love quick-scoping and getting highlights with these weapons.

However, some fans have taken to Reddit to ask for a fan-favorite sniper to return.

Reddit user DropTheSoapFB posted a photo on the CODWarzone subreddit with the caption: “I am gonna leave this here.”

The picture is of the classic MW2 sniper, the Intervention, photoshopped into Warzone. There is also a caption above the image that says, “Bring back the quick-scope king.”

Quick-scoping has been a massive part of the community ever since MW2. The Intervention is also the sniper that everyone associates with quick-scoping, primarily due to its consistent one-shot one-kill potential and extremely fast ADS time.

Although there are many great quick-scoping options in Warzone, of course, players want the Intervention back, as it’s essentially the weapon that started it all. One comment even said they’d like to see another classic MW2 weapon to go with it: “I’d buy that bundle, but I want akimbo g18s to go with it.”

Although many fans in the comments agree that they would love to see the Intervention return, many are also stating that players would complain about it not feeling the same as it did “10 years ago.”

Players have been persistent in wanting the Intervention back, especially for Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Players had hope for its return in Modern Warfare as classic weapons from MW2 like the UMP-45 returned as the Striker 45 and the M4A1.

With Call of Duty: Vanguard being released November 5 and the integration with Warzone to happen soon after, it’s unlikely that we will see the Intervention return, but fans can still dream, especially if the reports of the 2022 Call of Duty game being a sequel to Modern Warfare (2019).

Warzone devs respond to Radar Jammer making Rebirth Island a “nightmare”

The Warzone Pacific developers have responded a problem that’s making the Radar Jammer overpowered on Rebirth Island.



Radar Jammer and Warzone Rebirth Island

The Warzone Pacific developers confirmed that they’re working on fixing Season 3 Reloaded’s Radar Jammer after players claimed that the Field Upgrade is overpowered on Rebirth Island.

Warzone Pacific went through a plethora of changes following the arrival of the Season 3 Reloaded update, including the addition of a brand-new Field Upgrade known as The Radar Jammer.

Using this Field Upgrade in battle allows you to scramble an enemy’s Tac Map while preventing Killstreaks from players within a short radius. However, the Radar Jammer is overpowered on Rebirth Island.

The Hold Gulag in Warzone Season 3

Many in the Warzone community reported that the Radar Jammer blocks out a ton of the map when activated on Rebirth Island. This is because the radius and frequency of the Field Upgrade are extremely high.

This isn’t an issue on Caldera, but since Rebirth Island is a relatively smaller location, the Field Upgrade covers up a large section of the map. This is a widespread issue that makes your minimap useless until the Radar Jammer deactivates after 45 seconds.

Other Warzone players reported facing the same issue, as prominent Call of Duty leaker ‘TheGhostOfHope’ called for the devs to tone down the radius of this Field Upgrade on Rebirth Island.

One player responded to Ghost’s tweet by claiming that the Radar Jammer turns the Prison POI on Rebirth Island into a “nightmare,” as players keep spamming the Field Upgrade throughout the match.

This problem can ruin matches if it isn’t patched up soon, and the Warzone developers are aware of that. In response to Ghost’s tweet, the Beenox Twitter account confirmed that this is already under investigation.

The developers tweeted: “Hey there! The team is super aware of that, and we’re working on a fix to improve the player experience. Stay tuned.”

At the time of writing, the Beenox team hasn’t provided more details about when exactly this fix will be implemented in the game. We expect it to arrive in a future update and will be sure to let you know once this issue has been resolved.

Best Pelington 703 loadout for Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

The Pelington 703 is still incredibly strong in Warzone, so here is the best loadout class for this Black Ops Cold War sniper.



Pelington 703 in Black Ops Cold War

The Pelington 703 was one of Black Ops Cold War’s most powerful snipers and remains a powerful option even after Vanguard’s release. Here’s everything you need to create the best Pelington 703 Warzone loadout, including attachments, perks, and how to unlock it.

Warzone Season 3 is here, with the Season 3 Reloaded patch making a host of weapon balancing changes. While sniper rifles received a pretty significant nerf at the start of Season 3, they can still be a strong option in the right hands.

Black Ops Cold War’s Pelington 703 is capable of taking out foes with a single shot, and it provides great mobility during long-range encounters.

You can further improve this weapon by using the best Warzone Pelington loadout class.

Best Pelington 703 Warzone attachments

Best Warzone Pelington loadout
  • Muzzle: Wrapped Suppressor
  • Barrel: 27.2″ Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

We’ve built the best Warzone Pelington 703 loadout to improve the overall damage of the weapon while bringing the recoil under control. We’ll start off with the Wrapped Suppressor muzzle to improve its bullet velocity and keep you off the mini map.

Next, we’ll focus on further improving the bullet velocity of the best Warzone Pelington loadout with the 27.2″ Combat Recon barrel. Adding the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight should help with control, and can be useful if you find yourself in close-quarters combat.

Finally, as with all Sniper Rifles, you want your ADS speed to be as fast as possible. To achieve this, we’ve combined the SAS Combat Stock and Serpent Wrap.

Best perks & equipment for Warzone Pelington 703 class

Best Warzone Pelington 703 perks
  • Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

When using a Sniper Rifle, the best tactic is to find a comfortable spot to camp while you pick off your foes from a distance. If you want to avoid being found by enemies with thermal optics or High Alert, then equip the Cold-Blooded perk.

We recommend pairing the best Warzone Pelington loadout with another weapon like the Volk for up-close encounters. Overkill will allow you to carry two primary weapons, and you can pick Ghost from your second loadout drop to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Finally, Amped will allow you to switch between both primary weapons on a dime, allowing you to stay in the fight no matter the situation.

As for equipment, the Throwing Knife is very useful for eliminating downed enemies fast. While the Stim has been the go-to, it’s recent nerf means it’s not as useful as before. For that reason, we reckon the Smoke Grenade could be handy to get you out of tight situations.

How to get Pelington 703 in Warzone

The Pelington 703 is immediately available when you reach level 4 in either Black Ops Cold War or Warzone. This means that you do not have to complete any unlock challenges to begin using it in your matches.

Best Warzone Pelington 703 Alternatives

There are a number of other Warzone sniper rifles that are deadly if the Pelington isn’t cutting it for you. The ZRG 20mm is probably the best in the game right now, but the HDR and 3-Line Rifle are strong alternatives too.

The STG44 has also emerged as one of the most popular weapons in the game, so is always worth trying it out too.

Warzone expert proves buffed AR to make a comeback in Season 3 Reloaded

After completely falling out of the meta, a buff from the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update could result in the revival of a forgotten AR.



Warzone Caldera Season 3 Relaoded NZ-41

A Warzone expert has revealed an Assault Rifle loadout that could make a return to the top after the Season 3 Reloaded update buffed the weapon significantly.

The Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update was one of the most game-changing in recent memory. Not only did the update introduce new features like the Underground Transit System, squad HUD, and TTK changes, but it also delivered several weapon buffs and nerfs.

The devs decided to tweak Vanguard weapons once more in an attempt to make them viable across the battle royale. As a result, a weapon that hasn’t been relevant since the start of Warzone Pacific could make a return to the Assault Rifle meta.

NZ-41 loadout Warzone Pacific

When Warzone Pacific launched on December 8, Vanguard’s NZ-41 quickly established itself as the best Assault Rifle in the game. Top players and content creators praised the weapon for its fast TTK, but the NZ-41’s time in the spotlight did not last long as other weapons quickly surpassed it.

However, the Season 3 Reloaded update provided buffs to several of the NZ-41’s attachments, which has led top players like Metaphor to claim that it could rise to the top once more.

The devs explained that their goal with the update was to tweak the NZ-41’s recoil pattern to make it more forgiving, “We’ve adjusted the curve so that it’s more logical in its movement, allowing you to predict and compensate appropriately.”

Metaphor’s NZ-41 Assault Rifle Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Orbweaver 360mm BC
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scop 3-6x
  • Stock: Orbweaver E Pack
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 40 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip 
  • Perk: Brace
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Metaphor’s NZ-41 loadout takes advantage of the recently buffed Orbweaver 360mm BC and 8mm Klauser 40 Round Mags. The weapon’s biggest weakness was its poor recoil control, but you’ll notice that it is now much easier to control and still packs a punch.

These attachments had their bullet velocity and recoil control adjusted, “we’ve also taken a look at the velocity and range bonuses provided by Attachments and made significant adjustments so that the NZ-41 can compete with the best,” claimed the devs.

Brace and Polymer Grip will also keep your shots as straight as possible for long-range gunfights. The NZ-41 never had an issue with slow TTK and with the changes making it easier to hit your shots, the weapon kills incredibly quickly.
