Warzone PPSH-41 and MAC-10 gameplay

Warzone YouTuber and stats expert TrueGameData has revealed that the PPSH-41 SMG is statistically better than the much more popular MAC-10, which means it could become a surprise meta weapon.

Although a classic Call of Duty weapon, the PPSH-41 didn’t make much of a splash in Warzone when it arrived in Season 3. With Season 6 on the horizon, the PPSH still isn’t considered meta, but that could change thanks to new data.

TrueGameData has created a comprehensive website that compares almost every aspect of Warzone’s weapons. With the data found on this website, he has revealed that the PPSH-41’s stats slightly edge out the MAC-10’s which could make it the better weapon overall.

PPSH-41 in Call of Duty Warzone

Although the MAC-10 has long been one of Warzone’s most popular SMGs and the PPSH-41 only has a 2% pick rate, YouTuber TrueGameData believes that “a lot of people would prefer the PPSH if they just tried it out.”

He explains that the weapons are almost identical in terms of movement, fire rate, and recoil (although the MAC-10 slightly edges it out in the latter two categories). However, the PPSH has a few stats that make it the better choice overall.

For time-to-kill (TTK), the PPSH is slightly better than the MAC-10. They’re roughly the same at close-range, but the PPSH has more range, which gives it the edge.

Another interesting stat, the Damage Per Mag, is where the PPSH truly shines against the MAC-10. It can hold a 71 Rnd Drum Mag, which makes it a great choice for taking on squads, and allows it to “put out dramatically more Damage Per Mag.”

He explains that the PPSH-41 can down and finish two enemies in one mag, but you’ll likely need to run Throwing Knives to finish your kills with the MAC-10.

One factor that could make players prefer the MAC-10 is the recoil. The MAC’s higher fire rate gives it less visual recoil, but TrueGameData believes that the difference isn’t so huge that it gives one a clear edge.

Overall though, he concluded that while the MAC does have some better qualities such as Sprint to Fire Time, he believes the PPSH is better and “way, way underused right now.”

TrueGameData’s best PPSH-41 loadout

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Underbarrel: Patrol Grip
  • Magazine: Spetsnaz 71 Rnd Drum

This loadout gives the PPSH-41 the edge over the MAC-10, and is highly recommended by Warzone statistician TrueGameData.

Underground Transit System Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

Here’s where to find all of the mine cart locations attached to the Underground Transit System following the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update.

Warzone players will discover a new way to travel across Caldera in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded. The midseason update will grant players access to the underground mine carts beneath Caldera’s surface.

With access to the mine carts following the Classified Arms Reloaded update, players will be able to travel from one POI to another incredibly quickly. This new method of instant transportation is called the Underground Transit System, and here is where you can find all of the mine carts.

Warzone Underground Transit System explained

In a Season 3 teaser, players got their first glimpse at the underground mine cart system beneath Caldera. Following the Season 3 Reloaded update, this system will finally come into play. This new tool is an instant way to get around the map for quick rotations or outmaneuvering your opponents.

Once you access one of the 14 Underground Transit locations, you must simply enter a hatch and interact with the mine cart to travel to your new destination. Once you are close to the cart, “the destination name will appear on your screen – After a few seconds of travel time, you’ll instantly appear at your destination.”

Interestingly enough, players can use the light and audio clues to discern if there’s an ambush waiting for them at their next destination. A green light indicates that the coast is clear, while any other colored light hints at danger. Evidently, if the indicator is off with no information to deliver, you cannot travel to that destination.

Underground Transit System locations Warzone

As you can see from the image above, there are a total of 14 access points across the map. If you’re wondering what access points look like, you’ve likely seen one before. It turns out the Nebula 5 bunkers you’ve seen around the map for months now are the key to accessing seven of the points on the map.

Meanwhile, “the other seven access points are small hatches into the mine-cart hub area. Here, you can find a map of the system, with each hub location corresponding to a letter and number on your Tac Map.”

The Underground Transit System‘s access points will be viewable through your in-game map. They will be indicated on the Tac Map and minimap by a silver “vault door” symbol. Here are all of the mine cart locations across Caldera:

  • Arsenal
  • Docks
  • Runway
  • Ruins
  • Mines
  • Peak
  • Beachhead
  • Lagoon
  • Airfield
  • Fields
  • Sub Pen
  • Power Plant
  • Capital 
  • Resort

Almost every major POI across Caldera will have a mine cart access point. However, it is important to note that not all locations offer several destinations. Of the 14 access points, only Docks, Peak, Fields, Mines, Sub Pen, and Airfield offer multiple options when it comes to the destination.

What is Warzone’s Champion of Caldera?

Champion of Caldera is a brand-new Warzone Pacific limited-time mode being introduced with the Season 3 Reloaded update.

The game mode will go live on May 25 when the update is released and will be available for all players as a great alternative to Resurgence Solos and Caldera Clash when it comes to leveling weapons and high-intensity matches.

Champion of Caldera ruleset

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded’s new LTM is a Solos mode that features 150 players on Caldera with a “Battle Royale-style fight for survival.” While the means of securing a victory are the same as a standard Battle Royale match, there are some huge twists that will make for some great gameplay opportunities.

For starters, there’s one zone and it’s constantly closing. This makes for some fast-paced gameplay, especially when it gets to the end of the game.

Players also drop into the map with their Custom Loadout, a Gas Mask, and a single Redeploy Extraction Token. This speeds the match up even more, as players don’t need to spend time looting and getting geared up to fight.

The loot pool is also different for this game mode, as players will find equipment that isn’t usually found in Loadouts and also more high rarity weapons. The Buy Station is also upgraded, giving players the chance to purchase powerful Killstreaks like the Advanced UAV, and even the Specialist Bonus for a hefty price.


There you have it, that’s everything you need to know about the new Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded LTM Champion of Caldera. For more, check out the three best Shotguns in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded brings the new H4 Blixen SMG, so here’s how you’ll be able to unlock it when it arrives.

The H4 Blixen SMG is one of the brand-new weapons arriving during Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded, so here’s when it’s set to arrive and how you’ll be able to unlock it.

Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded is almost here, bringing a new map, Operator, and of course, a new weapon. The M1916 Marksman Rifle and the Nikita AVT Assault Rifle arrived as part of the Battle Pass, but a new SMG is set to arrive with the midseason update.

‘Classified Arms’ is Season 3’s theme, and the devs really kept info concerning the H4 Blixen SMG classified. However, we do know when it will arrive, so here’s how you’ll be able to unlock it in both Warzone and Vanguard Season 3 Reloaded.

How to unlock H4 Blixen in Warzone & Vanguard

You will be able to unlock the H4 Blixen by getting three slide kills in a single match 15 times. This SMG-based challenge is great for players who love to get around the map with the slide movement mechanic.

Later in Season 3, players could also purchase a Store Bundle that features a Blixen Weapon Blueprint. The H4 Blixen won’t be available until Vanguard and Warzone Season 3 Reloaded content goes live on May 25.

Each Vanguard season has brought a new SMG in the Reloaded update, such as the Welgun in Season 1 and the Armaguerra in Season 2 Reloaded. These two weapons quickly became powerhouses, so we expect the H4 Blixen to be the same.

In a May 23 blog post, the devs claimed that the H4 Blixen can rival the dominant Owen Gun, “the H4 Blixen delivers a reliable three-shot kill at a farther range than the Owen Gun, albeit with a slower rate of fire. It also has three more bullets per standard magazine and slightly better Vertical Recoil Control, Aim Down Sight (ADS) speed, and reload quickness.”
