It seems the Warzone developers noticed the powerful nature of the Black Ops Cold War starting pistol and have decided to give it a nerf in Season 4.
Warzone Season 4 has finally dropped, and players can now experience all the updates to the game.
From 120fps on PS5 to new weapons and even an Armored Truck, Warzone has been given loads of new content and updates, one of which affects the melee damage of the Black Ops Cold War 1911 starter pistol.
Although Season 4 will not be bringing this change, there is a significant Black Ops Cold War pistol nerf that shows the developer’s willingness to update the pistols in Warzone.
As Warzone players will know, most weapons will down an enemy with 2 melee hits, unless they initiate an execution from behind. Punching players with your fists will take down an enemy in around 4 or 5 hits, which is much less efficient.
With that being said, many players felt that the two hit melee on the 1911 starting pistol should be nerfed, as players would land and feel hard done by when their bullets do less damage than the pistol’s melee.
Warzone Season 4 1911 melee nerf
Before the Season 4 update, just like any other weapon, the 1911 starter pistol would bring down an enemy in two melee hits, which is obviously very powerful and often used in-game, especially at the beginning of matches.
With the new Season 4 update, the 1911 starting pistol will require 3 hits to down a player, which is still pretty quick but will definitely help with balancing and fights off drop.

Here’s the update in the official patch notes:
- 1911 (BOCW) starter Handgun now requires three hits to gain bonus Finisher damage instead of two.
- This change will increase the number of melee hits needed for this Weapon to down an enemy at 200hp by 1.
This is a very interesting nerf and has the potential to also change the other pistols’ melee damage depending on the community’s response.

Warzone’s demon gun glitch is back with a vengeance in Season 3
Warzone’s infamous demon gun glitch has returned to ruin games for players in Season 3, and this time it’s back with a vengeance.
Warzone’s demon gun glitch is making a return in Season 3, and players will have to contend with one of the worst iterations of the glitch we’ve seen to date.
Longtime Warzone players will be familiar with Warzone’s demon gun glitch as it never fails to pop up from time to time. The glitch occurs randomly and affects players’ visibility by blocking their screens with monstrous textures.
While the demon gun glitch has been dormant for a while, it has now reemerged with a vengeance in Warzone Season 3. Players will be hoping to avoid this iteration of the demon gun glitch as a strange twist makes it different than the traditional version.
The demon gun glitch has always been one of the most game-breaking glitches that players can encounter. When it occurs, players are helpless and cannot get rid of the visual glitch, and you’re basically stuck with it until you die.
Having the majority of your screen obscured by massive blocks of broken textures means that your match is likely over before it even begins. We’ve seen moments where players blind fire and luckily come out with a kill, but the majority of gamers suffer helpless Warzone deaths.
This time, a video posted to the Warzone subreddit by OowlwoO proves that the demon gun glitch is back and breaking the game in Season 3.
The player is simply attempting to grab a custom loadout, but it all goes wrong as a different version of the demon gun glitch appears. This time the visual glitch doesn’t appear on the player’s weapon.
It seems like the visual glitch is surrounding an enemy player in a “blob” of broken textures. To make matters worse, when the player in the clip is downed, their game crashes and they are booted back to the Warzone menu. If the glitch is kicking players from games, this is quite the troublesome version that players will have to deal with.
Players in the comments explained that this iteration seems to be a version of the demon gun glitch that affects the player model instead of weapons, “He didn’t render correctly, this used to be fairly common its similar to the gun render issue, our squad used to get this same thing, you just gotta shoot the middle of it and hope it dies.”

We’ll start off this Warzone loadout with the Agency Suppressor muzzle and 18.5″ Task Force barrel for the buffs they provide to vertical recoil control, bullet velocity, and effective damage range.
The Field Agent Grip helps further control recoil, and you can take advantage of the C58’s improved accuracy by equipping the Axial Arms 3x optic to pick off enemies from a distance in medium-range combat.
Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout by equipping the 45 Round Drum to ensure that you have enough ammo to take out all of your enemies in battle.

In terms of perks, we suggest sticking with E.O.D to deal with explosives that enemies are likely to throw at you, helping you to take less damage. You can pick Overkill to pair the weapon with an SMG like the Welgun.
For our final Perk, we went with Amped so that switching between both weapons becomes instantaneous. Finally, the Semtex and Stun equipment combo will help dish out additional damage to your foes.
How to unlock the C58 in Warzone Pacific
In order to acquire the C58, players can unlock the C58 for free by completing a challenge:

This is easy to do in Warzone Pacific where many fights are decided at range. We recommend the Automaton for this challenge, as its low recoil makes it easy to beam enemies at range.
Best alternatives to Warzone C58
If you’re looking for an alternative to the best C58 loadout, then we recommend using the CR-56 AMAX which boasts an impressive amount of damage and range. The XM4 is the best Assault Rifle in the game following the buff it got in the May 4 update.

Genius Warzone Operation Monarch trick immediately refills health & armor
There is a clever trick that you can use to instantly replenish health and shields in the Warzone Godzilla vs Kong Operation Monarch event.
Warzone players have discovered a clever healing trick that allows them to quickly regenerate their health and armor in the Operation Monarch event.
Warzone Pacific Season 3’s Godzilla vs Kong event brought a plethora of new content for players to enjoy, including the new Operation Monarch LTM, S.C.R.E.A.M. Device killstreak, as well as Godzilla, Kong, and Mechagodzilla Operator bundles.
This event grants you the opportunity to quickly level up weapons while earning free rewards, and players have found a useful trick that allows them to quickly fill up health and shields in Operation Monarch.
How to fill health and shields in Warzone’s Operation Monarch
You can battle Godzilla and Kong during the Warzone Operation Monarch event, and players have found that dealing damage to these monsters can instantly regenerate your health and shields.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Hop into a game of Warzone during Operation Monarch
- Find Godzilla or Kong
- Fire at them until your health and shields regenerate
This trick will help you out during tough times when your health and armor plating have been almost completely depleted. Reddit user ‘Similar-Arugula-7854’ showed this in action in the Warzone subreddit.
While this seems like a promising trick that will help when you’re overwhelmed in battle, it’s worth keeping in mind that Godzilla and Kong can both be dangerous, especially after entering the Titan Frenzy phase.
For that reason, we recommend keeping your distance and shooting at them with long-range weapons. You can also replenish health by picking up Monarch Intel from the dead bodies of your enemies.
