Warzone season 6 gulag

Players can relive their first Gulag duels in Warzone Season 6. The new Warzone Season 6 Gulag map is inspired by the original map that has become a fan-favorite.

The Gulag is one of the best features that separates CoD: Warzone from all other Battle Royales. The ability to 1v1 your way back into the fight is an exciting and intense part of every round of Warzone.

Over the past five Warzone seasons, the Gulag has changed its appearance to keep these 1v1s fresh. Despite a cosmetic change, the rules of the Gulag have never changed. You have to win the fight or get sent home.

Gulag fights can be the most memorable part of a Warzone game. And long-time players likely have fond memories of the first Gulag map. Now, for the last time in Verdansk, players can battle it out in a Gulag inspired by the original Gulag map in Warzone Season 6.

Warzone Season 6 Gulag

When you enter the Warzone Season 6 Gulag, you might get a sense of deja vu. No, you aren’t back in Season 1 of Modern Warfare, but you will recognize the new Gulag map.

Activision detailed everything new that would be coming to Warzone Season 6 in a Call of Duty blog. The blog includes details regarding new POIs, weapons, and the new Gulag map. All of which would be available at the start of Warzone Season 6 on October 7.

“Ready to relive your first Gulag duels? Season Six’s Gulag is inspired by the original trio of 1v1 maps within the Verdansk of 2019, and based on the Modern Warfare® Gunfight map variant. This takes place in an undisclosed and sectioned-off level of the deep Zordaya Prison Complex,” the Call of Duty Blog stated.

We have no further details regarding the throwback Gulag, but we can expect it to exude 2019 Warzone vibes. The blog post was also titled “Prepare for the Final Showdown,” which means we are looking at the last Warzone season to take place in Verdansk, as CoD: Vanguard will be bringing a new Pacific map to the Call of Duty battle royale.

As more info is provided, we will keep you updated on what the Warzone Season 6 Gulag map entails.

Warzone players beg Raven to reverse “stupidest” Loadout change ever

Warzone Pacific players are calling for Raven Software to reverse the “stupidest” change ever to weapon Loadouts.

Published

Warzone Operators and Loadout drop

Warzone Pacific players are frustrated by the Loadout selection changes in the game and are calling for Raven Software to reverse them in a future update.

Before Warzone Pacific Season 4 arrived, the Loadout Drop selection would hover over your previously selected choice and this would allow you to select your ideal Loadout in the pre-game lobby right away.

However, Raven Software felt that too many players were accidentally selecting the wrong loadouts so they made a major change to Loadout picking in the Season 4 update. Now, players are begging the devs to reverse this change.

Warzone players fighting beside loadout drop

In Warzone Pacific Season 4, when you open the Loadout Drop selection, the cursor always starts at the top of the Loadout Drop selection list, so you might end up picking your first Loadout rather than your preferred one.

Reddit user ‘Putridzzz’ expressed their frustration with this in the Warzone Pacific subreddit, claiming that it’s making them pick the wrong Loadouts and describing the change as extremely “stupid.”

The Redditor stated: “It’s ridiculous that even setting a Loadout to your “Favorite Loadout” still makes you pick your first Loadout. I have to scroll through all the Loadouts to pick the right one.”

Many of the commenters agreed that this change is irritating as it causes players to accidentally pick the wrong Loadout or spend time scrolling through the list looking for their favorite one in every game.

One user claimed that the biggest problem is that you’re unable to select your preferred weapon loadout quickly because you need to go down to the middle of the list. They then added that this change makes picking your guns in the pre-game lobby feel pointless.

A few users suggested that the developers make a change that allows them to rearrange their Loadouts without having to build them from scratch. This would make it easier to quickly pick your favorite loadouts in the game.

According to one commenter, the addition of a “Switch spots” option instead of “copy and replace” would be beneficial since it would let you move your desired Loadout to the top instead of having to remake one.

After players first slammed this change, Raven Software’s Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins responded to these complaints on Twitter, reassuring the community that they would get used to it.

Despite this, discontent continues over this change, and it remains to be seen whether or not the developers will implement another major tweak that will allow players to immediately select their favorite weapon Loadouts.

Warzone Pacific Cold War AK-47 loadout

The Cold War AK-47 is one of Warzone’s most reliable Assault Rifles, and here are the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment for the best Cold War AK-47 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Assault Rifles are a staple of the Call of Duty series, and while the Warzone Pacific Season 3 meta was dominated by weapons like STG44, the Season 4 update has brought other long-range weapons into the spotlight.

One of these is the Cold War AK-47 which Call of Duty expert JGOD believes is one of the best Assault Rifles that you can use. You can make it even deadlier with the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Here’s the best Cold War AK-47 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Best Warzone Cold War AK-47 loadout attachments

Best Cold War Ak-47 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20” Spetsnaz RPK Barrel
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd

Our Cold War AK-47 loadout for Warzone Pacific starts off by improving the weapon’s damage range, vertical recoil control, and bullet velocity with the GRU Suppressor and 20” Spetsnaz RPK Barrel.

The Spetsnaz Grip will give a further boost to the Assault Rifle’s recoil control, and you can then take advantage of the improved accuracy by picking off distant enemies with the help of the Axial Arms 3x optic.

Finally, we’ll cap off the loadout with the 45 Rnd magazine to ensure that we have plenty of ammo to take down multiple enemies. With these attachments, the Cold War AK-47 will be a powerhouse weapon.

Best Perks and Equipment to use with Warzone Cold War AK-47 class

CoD Warzone EOD perk
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

We recommend equipping E.O.D as your first Perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage from grenades and thermites. You can select Overkill to pair the weapon with a close-range option like the Marco 5 SMG.

The Amped Perk will allow you to swap between your two weapons instantly. In terms of Equipment, the Semtex is a great choice for your lethal as you can use it to dish out additional damage while the Stim will give you a health and speed boost.

How to unlock the Cold War AK-47 in Warzone

To unlock this AK-47 for Warzone use, you’ll need to reach Level 7 in either Warzone or Black Ops Cold War, which can be done in no time at all.

Just hop into a few games and start grinding out your skillset until you get your hands on this powerful Assault Rifle.

Best alternatives to Cold War’s AK-47 in Warzone

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the Cold War AK-47, then you should try out the best Cooper Carbine Warzone loadout which is extremely easy to handle during medium and long-range gunfights.

Weapons like the KG M40 and AS44 have also risen in the meta following the NZ-41 nerfs, so be sure to try those out during medium-range combat situations as well.

JGOD reveals Warzone’s best long-range weapons after Season 4 update

Warzone specialist JGOD has revealed his best long-range weapon picks following the Season 4 update that affected the meta.

Published

Fortune's Keep Warzone JGOD AK-47

Call of Duty expert and Warzone extraordinaire JGOD has analyzed the many long-range weapon options and revealed the best guns to use following the Season 4 update.

Warzone devs are constantly working on balancing the battle royale’s pool of weapons through updates. Seasonal updates usually provide a ton of buffs and nerfs, which tends to leave the meta in an awkward state as players rush to adapt to the changes.

With Season 3’s dominant STG44 firmly out of the picture, new long-range options have emerged in Season 4. Luckily, Warzone expert JGOD is around to break down which weapons are viable in Season 4 following buffs and nerfs.

Best XM4 loadout for Warzone Pacific

In JGOD‘s video highlighting the top long-range Warzone weapons after the Season 4 update, he breaks down the current state of the meta.

The stats expert clearly separates long-range options into three categories: meta, top tier viable, and viable. For the sake of breaking down the best long-range weapons, JGOD sticks to revealing the weapons he believes fit the meta and top tier viable categories.

He uses these categories to explain how the meta has changed since the Season 4 update. Prior to the update, the gap between the top meta weapons and top tier viable weapons was much larger.

Now, players can find a ton of success using top tier viable weapons: “You can use other things besides the absolute meta and not be hardcore penalized.”

According to JGOD, the NZ-41 is still the best long-range weapon in the game despite recent nerfs.

However, the expert predicts that another NZ-41 nerf should arrive soon enough, which will result in the long-range weapon meta becoming incredibly varied: “The nerf will come through again for the NZ and that will push it out and all these weapons that are top tier viable will essentially be the meta.”

Following the NZ-41, JGOD picks the BAR as the next best long-range weapon. Despite its slow fire rate, the BAR is one of the best long-range weapons in Warzone thanks to how easy it is to utilize.

The majority of JGOD’s video is spent highlighting top tier viable weapons that are set to benefit from an upcoming NZ-41 nerf: “You’re going to be able to use almost anything you want as soon as this next NZ nerf comes in.”

Aside from the NZ-41 and BAR, here’s the list of long-range weapons that players should use to maximize Warzone success:

If JGOD’s prediction is correct, it seems like the meta is heading in a very interesting direction throughout Season 4. Warzone players can expect to choose from a ton of viable options thanks to a level playing field.
