Warzone’s latest Rough Nugget blueprint may have some issues with it, as players express concern over the strong flashing light effects for those with epilepsy.

Warzone Season 4 has introduced a bunch of content to the game, with a new Red Door fast travel system and even some new Crashed Satellite locations across the map.

Further, like any season, players have also been gifted new weapons, like the C58 and MG 82. However, the latest issue isn’t surrounding the new weapons. It actually concerns a new Warzone Rough Nugget blueprint for the KSP.

Reddit user Peskybarbecue73 pointed out the issue with the new Warzone Rough Nugget blueprint.

They stated that it may need an “epilepsy warning” due to the extreme flashing colors effect the weapon gives off.

Users in the comments also had strong opinions towards the Rough Nugget blueprint, with one even stating: “I don’t suffer from epilepsy, but wtf, even that hurt my head and eyes.”

You can find the video on the official Warzone subreddit here, but we urge caution for photosensitive individuals to be careful, as the video does show an array of bright flashing lights.

The video shows how strong these effects are, with the lights flashing different colors and even spreading over the whole Warzone Rough Nugget blueprint that has quickly caught the eye of the Call of Duty community even though this particular SMG is not extremely popular and is not used in the majority of loadouts by players.

Not to say the Warzone Rough Nugget blueprint isn’t nice. It’s a well-made skin with great colors and a unique selling point, mimicking a gold nugget perhaps as a reference to the Salt Mines location.

However, many community members responded with the idea that it may need to be toned down a little or come with a warning for those who don’t take well to strong flashing lights.

Warzone August 5 update patch notes: Krig 6 & CX-9 changes

In a surprise Warzone update on August 5, Raven Software made significant changes to the popular Krig 6 and brand-new CX-9 SMG.

Warzone Krig 6 nerfed

Raven Software has released a new Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Warzone on August 5. This new Game Settings update brings a small number of changes.

The Krig 6 has been the most dominant and popular weapon since Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, but the August 5 update is set to change that.

The new update brings a significant nerf to Black Ops Cold War’s Krig 6, as well as Modern Warfare’s newly released CX-9 SMG.

Warzone Krig 6 nerfed & CX-9 buffed

Although we’re fast approaching August 12’s Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5, Raven Software has treated fans to two surprise updates this week. First, the long-awaited CX-9 and the Soap Operator bundle finally arrived, and now Raven has released a small, but likely meta-changing, balance update.

In this surprise update, the Krig 6 received an impactful nerf. This weapon was known for its extremely high accuracy and ability to dominate at range. While it still remains as accurate as before, its Lower Torso Multiplier and Maximum Damage Range have been hit.

The Krig 6 will still be able to melt enemies at medium range, but it’ll likely struggle in those long-distance engagements. The C58 Assault Rifle has been a close 2nd place in terms of effectiveness, so it could become the meta once again.

And another surprising tweak, the CX-9 has been buffed. Both its mid damage range and Headshot multiplier have been increased, so the CX-9’s place appears to have been solidified as more of a long-range SMG, that’ll be perfect to pair with Sniper Rifles.

You can check out the exact values below.

Warzone August 5 Update Patch Notes

Krig 6 Warzone Season 4
  • Krig 6 (BOCW)
    • Lower Torso Multiplier decreased from 1.1 to 1
    • Maximum Damage Range decreased from 1500 to 1400
  • CX-9 (MW)
    • Increased mid damage range from 20 to 21
    • Increased Headshot Multiplier from 1.4 to 1.45

JGOD reveals his top tip to boost your Warzone K/D & win more gunfights

JGOD has broken down his top tip to help you win more gunfights and boost your Warzone kill to death ratio.

Published

JGOD and Alex operator from Warzone

Warzone YouTuber JGOD has broken down the simple trick you can use to win more gunfights and “instantly raise your K/D.”

‘Centering’ is a term you may have heard your favorite Call of Duty and Warzone pros use, as it’s one of the most important aspects of any FPS game. Make sure your aim is ‘centered’ and already where you expect enemies to be will allow you to snap onto them much quicker, giving you the edge in gunfights.

Using examples from Warzone’s top professional players, YouTuber JGOD has broken down how important centering is to improve your K/D ratio and winning more gunfights.

What is centering in Warzone?

Centering in Warzone

As JGOD explains, centering is keeping your crosshair in the center of your screen so you’re always ready for a player to appear. This means aiming at chest height at all times where you expect enemies to be, whether that’s in doorways, windows, or out in the open. JGOD explained that sometimes that tiny adjustment you have to make if you’re not centered “is enough to lose you the gunfight.”

Using his own example, when JGOD is aiming at the floor, he has to massively adjust to aim at an enemy, and messes up his shots. He then corrects himself, centers his aim, and easily wins the fight.

He explains that controllers players tend to be the most guilty of aiming at the floor, as his own centering is much better when playing on keyboard and mouse. It could be a battle royale problem, as you’re constantly looking at the ground for loot.

JGOD Warzone centering examples

JGOD then uses top Warzone pro Tommey as an example, explaining how good centering can even correct mistakes. In the middle of a fight, Tommey expected a player to swing through a doorway and was centered ready for the player. Instead, the player dropped down one of the fireman’s poles, and because Tommey was centered, he easily adjusted his aim slightly to the right to win the gunfight.

As another perfect example of centering, JGOD analyzes DougIsRaw’s gameplay. Before Doug dropped down a ladder into the stairs of one of the apartment buildings, he took a second to center his aim to chest height. This allowed him to drop down already with perfect aim, and easily got the kill.

While centering is just instinct for Warzone’s top players, JGOD said that you’ll have to “consciously work on it day after day.” Just keep centering in mind while playing, and you’ll find your gameplay will improve immensely.

FaZe Swagg has added a new attachment to his CX-9 SMG that is helping him to dominate Warzone, here’s the full loadout.

FaZe’s Kris “Swagg” Lamberson has changed up his CX-9 loadout in Warzone Season 4, and the new 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags attachment is “cooking” enemies in Call of Duty.

The new CX-9 SMG has become quite a popular weapon since it arrived in Warzone. Aside from it being new and exciting, it’s also quite a solid SMG to use in Season 4 – joining the other best SMGs to use in Warzone.

So to try and make it even more devastating than it already is, FaZe’s Swagg has come up with another spin on the CX-9. He’s added the 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags to his SMG, and the results have been incredible for him.

Swagg kicks off his newest video by saying: “A lot of you guys don’t know but the CX-9 actually comes with Hollow Point 12 Round Mags, it turns the gun into three-round bursts and it ups the damage a lot.

“The damage, the speed, and all that stuff too, it makes this gun hard-hitting. I was playing some duos today, and I was cooking every single person I saw, it was ridiculous.”

He then goes into the gameplay and drops a healthy 22-kill game, with many of them coming at the hands of the CX-9 and its Hollow Point rounds.

FaZe Swagg’s CX-9 Hollow Points Mag loadout & attachments

  • Barrel: CX-38S
  • Optic: G.I Mini Reflex
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 9mm Hollow Point 12-R
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand

One of the biggest selling points of the CX-9 is that already comes with a suppressor – if you equip the CX-38S barrel. This is a bonus as it frees up a slot that players otherwise normally use up to silence the weapon.

This allows Swagg to be able to use the Hollow Point rounds, and also Sleight of Hand as a Perk. It’s quite a clever addition as even though the bullets are way more powerful than standard ammo, there’s a very limited amount of them.

Sleight of Hand speeds this process up immensely and allows you to keep churning out Hollow Points at a good rate.
