Map

New Points of Interest:

  • Mobile Broadcast Stations
    • These POIs can be found in a variety of locations in Verdansk, differing from match-to-match to keep one area from being signal boosted by the rewards they offer. See what they’re all about by going closer to them, but be sure to keep your head and tune out the broadcast each one emits…
  • [[REDACTED]]
    • [[REDACTED]] has gone off grid and reports suggest [[REDACTED]] is doing [[REDACTED]] in Verdansk – what, we do not know. This is an unauthorized [[REDACTED]] that could jeopardize our [[REDACTED]] in discovering and stopping Stitch.

New Gulag: Rush:

  • Based on the classic Black Ops II map, this layout is comprised of the main speedball arena.

Red Doors:

  • Beware of these doors sending you to unexpected locations other than the main room. This may have something to do with those Mobile Broadcast Stations seen around Verdansk…

General

  • [Console Only] High-resolution textures are now delivered through On-Demand Texture Streaming. To enjoy a similar visual quality, enable this feature in the Options menu.
  • [PC Only] The Windows 7 operating system will stop being supported by Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® and Call of Duty®: Warzone™ on September 8th, 2021.

Gameplay

  • Loot that spawns across Verdansk has been adjusted as follows…
    • New Gulag and in-game lobby loadouts
    • The Sentry Gun Killstreak can now be found in Supply Boxes
    • The TEC-9 (BOCW) and EM2 (BOCW) have been added to the loot pool
  • Players may now detach from an ascender before reaching their destination.

Perks:

  • Added:
    • Combat Scout – Slot 3 (Yellow)
      • Damaging an enemy briefly highlights and automatically pings them.
    • Tempered – Slot 2 (Red)
      • Armor Plates are reinforced and now absorb 75 damage instead of 50. Only two Armor Plates are needed for an Operator to be considered “fully armored.”
  • Adjusted:
    • Cold-Blooded – Slot 1 (Blue)
      • Undetectable by AI targeting systems and thermal optics. Does not trigger High Alert warning and negates Combat Scout.
      • This change only applies to Warzone.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed additional collision issues with various elements across Verdansk allowing Players to exploit/peek/shoot through them.
  • Fixed visual issues with various elements across Verdansk causing them to disappear at certain angles or allowing light to shine through them.
  • Fixed an issue allowing Players to hide inside of cash drops.
  • Fixed an issue related to the in-game lobby causing Players to turn invisible for the duration of the match.
  • Fixed an issue where a Munitions Box could be dropped in the in-game lobby and persist to the live match.
  • Fixed an issue where a Player would lose their Weapons when reviving another player if the downed Player gave up.
  • Fixed an issue where a Player’s head would disappear when a Plunder bag was on their back.
  • Fixed an issue where Dismemberment was not working for the “Solar Flare” Blueprint.
  • Fixed an issue where new Text Chat options did not appear in the Accessibility Menu.
  • Fixed an issue where sniper glint would sometimes not appear.

  • Fixed an issue with the Steady Aim Laser descriptions for the AK-47 (BOCW) and C58 (BOCW).
  • Fixed an issue where Tracers were not present when using the “Solar Flare” Blueprint.
  • Fixed an issue with Akimbo Pistols would spawn with the left Weapon unloaded.
  • Fixed an issue with the OTs 9 (BOCW) dynamic icons.

UI, UX, More

  • Added a new Armor Box icon to better differentiate between Ammo Box and Armor Box.

Accessibility

  • Added the option to have Steady Aim Behavior be a toggle instead of a hold for Controller and KBM.
     
    • This accessibility feature supports motor disability by eliminating the need to hold a button for extended periods of time in order to stabilize scoped Weapons such as snipers. 
    • The setting has two options:
      • Hold: Press and hold to steady aim.
      • Toggle: Press to steady aim. Press again to stop.
         
    • Note: The setting cannot be used if the Change Zoom Shared Input setting is set to Steady Aim (Sprint/Tactical Sprint/Steady Aim Keybind in Warzone).

Weapons

New Weapons (BOCW):

  • EM2: Assault Rifle (Launch)
    • Full-auto assault rifle. Heavy British rifle with considerable kick and a built in low-zoom optic. Slow rate of fire and high damage makes the EM2 a solid choice for skilled marksmen.
    • Obtain the EM2 for free and ready to use in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone at Tier 15 of the Season Five Battle Pass.
  • TEC-9: Submachine Gun (Launch)
    • Semi-auto submachine gun. Improved accuracy from longer ranges with low recoil and a slower fire rate. Good damage output with moderate range.
    • Obtain the TEC-9 for free and ready to use in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone at Tier 31 of the Season Five Battle Pass.

The TEC-9 is a unique weapon, in that it sports two muzzles that alter its fire type. When properly equipped, the TEC-9 is highly effective at enabling aggressive hip fire play.

  • Cane: Melee (In-Season)
    • Lethal walking cane.  Where fashion meets function.  Adorned with a sterling silver lion’s head, this cane is easy to grip and deadly when swung.
    • Obtain via unlock Challenge or via Blueprint in the Store.
  • Marshal: Handgun (In-Season)
    • Break action pistol. Hand loaded double barrel pistol fires 12 gauge shells. Excellent damage at close range.
    • Obtain via unlock Challenge or via Blueprint in the Store.

New Weapon Unlock Challenges (BOCW):

  • MG 82: Light Machine Gun 
    • Using LMGs, kill 3 or more enemies without reloading in 15 different completed matches.
  • C58: Assault Rifle
    • Using Assault Rifles, get a Long Shot kill in 15 different completed matches.

Best M13 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 4

Players who use the best loadout for the M13 Assault rifle in Warzone Season 4 will be able to take down enemies with laser accuracy.

Published

on

The M13 is a fast-firing Assault Rifle that excels at medium-to-long range in Call of Duty: Warzone, so here is the best loadout class for it in Season 4.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded brought major weapon buffs and nerfs that have made significant changes to most players’ loadout weapons in the Call of Duty battle royale.

However, the M13 from Modern Warfare continues to be a solid weapon that may not get as much fanfare as other weapons but can definitely secure wins and high kill amounts for players if they maximize its potential, especially after it got a significant buff in the Season 4 Reloaded update.

With this in mind, here is the best Warzone M13 loadout in Season 4 right now. 

Best Warzone M13 loadout

Best Warzone M13 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus Marksman
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic or Holographic Sight
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The best Warzone M13 loadout is built to be laser-accurate in Warzone, dominating at medium-long range. However, its high rate of fire will also allow it to melt at close range. 

To vastly increase the M13’s range, we’ve opted for the Monolithic Suppressor and Tempus Marksman barrel. Combined, these attachments will significantly improve the M13’s bullet velocity and damage over range, making it effective for any engagement. As a bonus, the suppressor will keep you hidden from the minimap while firing, allowing for greater secrecy. 

We’ve added the VLK 3.0x Optic to the best Warzone M13 loadout for extra precision at range. This unobtrusive scope will allow you to be accurate at almost any range, allowing you to specifically aim for the upper chest and headshots. To further improve its accuracy, adding the Commando Foregrip will remove almost all horizontal and vertical recoil. 

With the M13 having a high rate of fire for an Assault Rifle, you’ll need the 60 Round Mags to constantly reduce the need to reload. It will still burn through this magazine fast, so make sure cover is never far away to give yourself a safe place to reload.

Best perks to use with Warzone M13 class

  • Perk 1 – E.O.D
  • Perk 2 – Overkill/Ghost
  • Perk 3 – Amped

Players often use lethal equipment to get the upper hand in Warzone, and the E.O.D Perk will drastically reduce incoming explosive damage. As long as you have a little bit of armor left, you’ll be able to survive an onslaught of grenades and Semtex.

Because the M13 excels at medium-long range, you’ll want a secondary that can dominate up-close. Overkill allows you to carry two primary weapons to have the best weapons available as early as possible.

Then, once you’ve got Overkill from your first loadout, try to get Ghost from your next. This will allow you to carry both of your guns and be invisible from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

While carrying two primary weapons in the best Warzone M13 loadout, you’ll often be switching between them to take fights in different situations. There’s nothing worse than being caught while waiting for your weapons to swap, so the Amped perk removes almost all weapon swap delay. 

How to Unlock the M13

Players who would like to use the best Warzone M13 loadout will first need to unlock the Assault Rifle, which can be achieved by reaching Level 39 in either the Call of Duty: Warzone or Modern Warfare.

Best alternatives

Try the best Warzone M13 loadout, and you’ll find yourself with the best loadout for this weapon that excels at any range across Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island
