Minnesota ROKKR was back to host another Warzone tournament, offering pro players, content creators, and celebrities a chance to earn their share of the $100,00 prize pool.

Season 5’s event pits the players against each other in private lobbies over two days, with the main event taking place on August 17.

An adrenaline-fueled day of Warzone action saw Team SuperEvan consisting of SuperEvan, Repullze, and Lucky Chamu claim the top spot in the final standings of the $100K ROKKKR Royale Tournament.

It was an exhilarating day of Warzone action for Team SuperEvan. They were able to win the first two games of the five-game series impressively, especially considering that Lucky Chamu lagged out of the second game due to his power going out and was not able to play in the third match.

However, Lucky Chamu was able to get back in the action in the fourth match and help SuperEvan and Repullze secure the Warzone ROKKR Royale Tournament championship. You can find the final standings for the event below:

Warzone Iron Trials ’84 mode: Release date, new ruleset, rewards

Warzone’s “toughest” mode will be arriving in Season 5 soon, with Iron Trials ’84 offering the best players an exclusive reward.

Following Warzone’s Season 5 Reloaded update, devs are introducing Iron Trials ’84. In this mode, players can earn bragging rights by winning “the toughest Battle Royale mode to ever come to Verdansk.”

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded has officially arrived, bringing with it significant weapon balance changes, the upcoming Numbers event, and new game modes.

One of these new modes is Iron Trials ’84, which is a more hardcore Verdansk experience where players can earn an exclusive Calling Card. In Iron Trials, you must “flex your mastery over the entire arsenal of weapons” and “prove you can handle any firefight with any type of armament.”

Here’s everything we know about Warzone’s upcoming Iron Trials ’84 mode.

Warzone Iron Trials ’84 release date

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded roadmap

In Warzone Season 5 Reloaded’s update patch notes, the devs revealed that the Iron Trials ’84 mode would go live on September 16.

This will be part of Warzone’s weekly Playlist updates, which usually go live around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT.

Warzone Iron Trials ’84 rules

Warzone players playing Iron Trials '84 in Verdansk stadium

In many ways, Iron Trials is a more competitive version of Warzone. The Gulag is more skill-reliant, loadout drops are rarer and more difficult to acquire, and the time-to-kill (TTK) has been raised across the board.

Thanks to the Call of Duty Blog and the Season 5 Reloaded patch notes, here’s every new rule coming to Warzone’s Iron Trials ’84:

Higher time-to-kill

Players’ base health has been increased, and healing rates have been adjusted, likely making for a much longer TTK.

Devs have previously made it their mission to increase Warzone’s TTK, saying that it increases “the overall capacity for skill expression” and enables “more escapes from impossible situations, moments of finesse, epic outplays, and opportunities to flex exquisite marksmanship.”

They said that the health change is “set to affect the feel of combat, time-to-kill, weapon, Perk, and Equipment viability as the entire game is effectively altered!”

No free Loadout Drops

Even if you Gulag’d early and are scrambling to find cash and more weapons, you can always be safe in the knowledge that a free Loadout Drop will arrive at the start of the second and fifth circles.

But not in Iron Trials ’84, where Complimentary Loadout Drops have been disabled. Staying alive and finding cash has never been more important, especially when “the cost at a Buy Station has risen, too.”

Players will have to collect and spend $15,000 instead of the standard $10,000 to purchase a loadout drop in this game mode.

Tougher Gulag

Players fighting in Warzone Season 5 Rush Gulag

In Iron Trials ’84, devs have revealed that the Gulag is still open but will emphasize one-on-one skill. They also said that “the only thing standing between you and redeployment is the agility of your trigger finger.”

Players have previously called for dual weapons and Tactical Equipment to be removed from the Gulag, and Raven is delivering in the Iron Trials ’84 Gulag.

  • No akimbo
  • No semi-auto or fully-auto Shotguns
  • Almost no Tactical Equipment

Also, if you win your one-on-one, you’ll now redeploy with whatever weapons and equipment you had in the Gulag.

No Stopping Power or Dead Silence

Players have long complained about the luck-based advantage that the powerful Field Upgrades Stopping Power and Dead Silence brings.

Raven Software has previously reduced Stopping Power spawn rates and allowed High Alert to counter Dead Silence, but Iron Trials removes both.

Sniper Rifle, Stun Grenade, and Medical Syringe nerfs

Sniper Rifles are some of Warzone’s most powerful tools, allowing you to take out targets at extremely long range without getting your hands dirty. However, Iron Trials ’84 has made it so Sniper Rifles “Can only one-shot to the head within 30 meters.”

This will likely promote more aggressive playstyles for snipers, where they must close the gap to land that ever-important one-shot kill.

In addition, Stun Grenades and Medical Syringes will also see their effectiveness decreased by a whopping 50%, making them not nearly as strong as they are in regular game modes.

Fewer vehicles

Dirt Bike, Bertha, and Helicopter in CoD Warzone

A common strategy for surviving Verdansk is to move around in the safety of Big Bertha Trucks, SUVs, and Helicopters. You won’t be able to do this in Iron Trials, though, as the only vehicles on the map will be ATVs and Dirt Bikes.

You won’t be able to run over your opponents with such ease, and you won’t be able to use the vehicles for cover. Raven recommends you “Plan your drops carefully and rotate early.”

Loot changes

You can find all of the game-changing loot changes that will be in effect in the Warzone Iron Trials ’84 game mode below:

  • Basic Attachments: Common weapons will start with an attachment – most to provide their max magazine size.
  • Rarity Spawn Rates: Epic and Legendary weapons are now harder to find. Players will have to open a few more boxes than usual to find what they’re looking for.
  • New Rarity – Classified: These Black Ops Cold War weapons will spawn with a few more attachments than usual – more than the standard five. That said, good luck finding one.
  • Killstreaks: Drop rates have been reduced. Time to stop spamming UAVs and to start putting those senses to the test.
  • Cash Spawns: Larger piles of cash are rarer. Players will have to stay on top of scavenging for cash if they plan to afford a Loadout.
  • Field Upgrades: No Dead Silence. No Stopping Power Rounds. Period.

Buy Station price changes

  • Armor Bundle: $1,500 to $2,000
  • Gas Mask: $3,000 to $4,000
  • Cluster Strike: $3,000 to $4,000
  • Precision Strike: $3,500 to $4,500
  • Self Revive: $4,000 to $5,000
  • UAV: $4,000 to $6,000
  • Loadout Drop Marker: $10,000 to $15,000

Operator changes

  • Base Health: Compared to a normal match, all players’ base health is increased from 100 to 250.
  • Health Regeneration: The regen delay timer has been increased from 5 to 7 seconds and regen per second has been decreased from 120 per second to 40. It may be wise for players to reconsider preferred Perks and Equipment.
  • Starting Equipment: Players drop in with a .44 Magnum and a Sledgehammer.

Warzone Iron Trials ’84 reward

For winning a game of Iron Trials ’84, players can get their hands on an exclusive Calling Card.

Devs said that “there’s no participation trophy for this mode,” and only those who win Iron Trials will receive the Calling Card.

That’s everything we know about Warzone Season 5’s Iron Trials ’84 mode! For more Warzone, you can check out everything we know about the new Warzone map’s release date.

Best Pelington 703 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 5

The Pelington 703 is incredibly strong in Warzone Season 5, so here is the best loadout class for this Black Ops Cold War sniper.

Published

on

Using the Pelington in Warzone

The Pelington 703 Sniper Rifle is a fan favorite in Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer, and it remains a formidable weapon after Warzone’s Season 5 Reloaded update. Here’s the best Warzone Pelington loadout.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded brought a plethora of weapon buffs and nerfs to the battle royale. While many weapons ended up being nerfed in the Reloaded update, the Pelington 703 is still an ideal pick.

This Sniper Rifle 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 Warzone loadout

Best Warzone Pelington loadout

Best Warzone Pelington loadout attachments

  • 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. And the SAS Combat Stock will let you move faster while shooting, and boost your aim walking movement speed.

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 for Warzone Pelington 703 class

Best Warzone Pelington 703 perks
  • Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

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 then equip the Cold-Blooded perk.

We recommend pairing the best Warzone Pelington loadout with another weapon like the Krig 6 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.

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.

Most recent Pelington 703 buffs and nerfs

It has been sometime since Raven Software has made any siginifcant buffs or nerfs to the Pelington 703 in Warzone, but we will be sure to update this section with any new changes for this Black Ops Cold War Sniper Rifle when they are made.

How to Unlock Pelington 703 in Warzone

This weapon 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 this Pelington 703 in your matches.

Best Alternatives

Best Milano 821 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 5

The Milano remains a great option in CoD: Warzone Season 5, so here are the attachments and Perks you should use to make the best loadout.

Published

on

Best Warzone Milano Loadout

SMGs are a reliable choice in Warzone, and you can do a ton of damage with the Milano 821. Here’s how you can further improve it with the best Warzone Season 5 Milano loadout.

You’ll find yourself engaging in a variety of different combat situations when you jump into a match of Warzone, and you’ll make use of different weapons in each one. SMGs are ideal for close-range engagements.

The Milano 821 had no changes in the Season 5 update, retaining its recoil, damage range, and multipliers. This makes the Milano one of the best SMGs in the game, and you can improve it with the right loadout.

Here is the best Warzone Milano loadout in Season 5.

Best Warzone Milano loadout

Best Warzone Milano 821 loadout

Best Warzone Milano loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 10.6″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Stock: SAS combat stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 55 Rnd Drum

We’ll start with this Warzone Milano loadout with the Agency Suppressor to increase the damage range and bullet velocity of this SMG. You’ll also get better control over vertical recoil, and the sound suppression is great for stealth.

You’ll want to be able to move through close quarters quickly while firing, and the 10.6″ Task Force will let you strafe faster. It will also further improve the damage, effective damage range, and bullet velocity.

We picked the Axial Arms 3x so that we have a clear and precise optic for the Milano 821. It will slightly reduce your ADS speed, but that’s not a noticeable loss for an SMG.

The SAS Combat Stock will provide another powerful boost to your mobility, allow you to move faster while shooting and boosting your aim walking speed. This will slightly reduce your hip-fire accuracy.

Finally, you’ll want to ensure that you have enough bullets to secure victory when using the best Warzone Milano loadout, and using the STANAG 55 Rnd drum magazine will help you with that.

Best Perks to use with Warzone Milano class

best perks Milano class
  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

You’ll need to be fast when you get into close and medium-range encounters, and Double Time will allow you to run for longer periods of time. Now, you’ll be able to get away from enemies.

While the attachments will help make up for the damage range that was lost in the Season 5 Reloaded update, we recommend getting Overkill so that you can equip a longer-ranged gun to accompany the Milano, such as the Swiss K31.

You can then select Ghost from your second loadout drop, allowing you to avoid enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Detectors.

Finally, the Combat Scout Perk is a must for any Warzone loadout as it’s revolutionized the game. With a gun like the Milano, you should at least land a shot on your opponent, and it will cast a live ping marker above their head for 5 solid seconds, giving you a great window of opportunity.

Most recent buffs and nerfs to Milano 821 in Warzone

Best Warzone Milano Loadout
