Warzone has a variety of weapons in Season 5, especially with the Black Ops Cold War integration. Knowing exactly how these weapons work is essential to success, so here is how you can check the fire rate of every weapon in Warzone.
Warzone Season 5 Reloaded is host to an abundance of weapons.
Knowing how these weapons work isn’t just important for your loadouts but more so for when you are in those early-game moments and situations where you have to use floor loot.
To be a great Warzone player, you’ll need to know the ins and outs of each weapon, not only for your own sake but also so you can identify which weapons the enemy is using.
The best way to check the fire rate of a weapon in Warzone depends on which game the weapon you are using is from. Both Modern Warfare and Cold War weapons have slightly different ways to let you know how the weapon operates.
Whether you’re in the Gulag or just dropped into Verdansk with a weapon you’ve looted off the floor, you can always tell what fire rate the weapon has by checking out these simple indications.
There are three different indicators for three different fire rates. Here are the indicators for MW weapons:
- A single bullet which means the weapon is semi-automatic
- Three bullets that indicates a burst weapon
- Finally, a stack of bullets indicates that the weapon is fully automatic.
As for the Black Ops Cold War weapons, the indicators are slightly different, as they are actually in the form of your cross-hairs:
- Four striped cross-hair is fully automatic
- The four striped crosshairs with a dot at each end is a burst weapon
- A three striped crosshair means the weapon is semi-automatic
There you have it. That’s how you can tell what kind of fire rate the weapon you are holding is for both Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War weapons.
It will be interesting to see which form Call of Duty: Vanguard’s weapons will hold. Still, as the game seems to be following in Modern Warfare’s footsteps with the engine and mini-map, it’s likely to be the same indicators once the game is integrated into Warzone.

Banned Warzone pay-to-win Bullfrog Blueprint completely breaks game audio
Warzone players have discovered a bugged pay-to-win Bullfrog Blueprint that completely breaks the game’s audio.
It appears a pay-to-win Bullfrog Blueprint has made its way to Call of Duty: Warzone, with the bugged weapon completely ruining audio cues and being banned from some tournaments.
With Modern Warfare’s major overhaul to Call of Duty’s cosmetics, devs were clear that purchasable items will provide no competitive advantage. However, thanks to bugs and glitches, that isn’t always the case.
Now, it appears that a Bullfrog skin is completely messing up the game’s audio, giving the impression that shots are coming from all around.
Hearing and understanding audio cues is a major aspect of dominating Warzone, so it’s important you have the best audio settings. Yet, it turns out that a Bullfrog Blueprint is causing major audio issues, and it’s now been banned from competitive play.
Warzone pro and streamer ZLaner was playing with Dr Disrespect and TimTheTatman when he noticed that one of his teammates was using the bugged Bullfrog. It turned out to be Tim, so Z showed Doc and the audience exactly what the problem is.
After Tim fired the weapon, Doc immediately reacted by saying “Oh my god, no way!” ZLaner then clarified the issue, explaining that “it sounds like it’s all around you.” When this Bullfrog Blueprint is fired nearby, it appears that it’s impossible to track down exactly where the shots are coming from.
This Bullfrog issue appears to be well-known in the competitive community, with pro player exzachht reportedly nearly disqualified for using a Bullfrog Blueprint in the Z&Z tournament. He never used the broken one, but it proves it’s a serious issue.
The Blueprint in question, Blast Radius, sells in the Store for 2,400 COD Points so it appears that it is indeed pay-to-win. How much it affects regular public matches is uncertain but the competitive community has clearly found issues with it.
It’s highly unlikely the Blueprint is meant to act this way, so mow that it has entered the limelight, perhaps Raven Software will provide a fix in the future.

Best SP-R 208 Warzone loadout
Best Warzone SP-R loadout attachments
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: SP-R 26″
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Optic: Solozero SP-R 28mm
- Ammunition: .338 Lapua Mag 5-R Mag
Our SP-R 208 loadout will focus on improving the weapon’s speed and accuracy in Warzone. We’ll start off with the Monolithic Suppressor to hide your shots from the radar and boost the weapon’s damage range.
The SP-R 26″ barrel will provide a boost to the Marksman Rifle’s damage and accuracy so that you can dish out pain with greater precision. A sniper needs to be unpredictable and move around during engagements, and the Tac Laser attachment will make this much easier.
We strongly recommend equipping the Solozero SP-R 28mm scope since it provides the weapon with 7x magnification, letting you score headshots with greater ease.
Finally, you should use the 338 Lapua Mag 5-R Mags since they’ll ensure that you barely need to compensate for bullet drop or travel time. And as an added benefit, upper body shots will almost always crack armor.
Best perks to use with Warzone SP-R 208 class
- Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
- Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
If you want to avoid being found by enemies with thermal optics while camping, then we recommend that you equip the Cold-Blooded perk.
You should select Overkill from your first loadout drop so that you can carry two primary weapons with this Marksman’s RIfle. Then you can pick Ghost from your second loadout drop to hide from UAVs.
Finally, Amped will allow you to switch between both primary weapons on a dime, allowing you to stay in the fight no matter the situation.
Most recent SP-R 208 buffs and nerfs in Warzone
Raven Software has not made any major changes to this Marksmen Rifle in some time, but we will update this section with any changes if they are applied to the SP-R 208.
How to unlock the SP-R 208
If you want to unlock the SP-R 208 Marksman Rifle in Warzone, you will need to get 2 longshot kills that are headshots in 5 different matches using a Sniper or Marksman Rifle.
Once that unlock challenge has been completed, you will be able to make the best Warzone the SP-R loadout to pick your enemies off while camping a great distance away.
If you want to try out an alternate weapon to the SP-R, then we recommend going with the Kar98k. Its fast ADS speed makes it perfect for quickscoping and hitting impressive shots, but it can also deal with opponents farther.
The Swiss K31 comes with a fast ADS speed and bolt time, making it a fun and effective weapon to push players at close-medium range. You can make good use of its clean iron sights and fast bullet velocity.
