Raven Software has introduced new Blueprint Blitz events to Call of Duty: Warzone, allowing players to earn a ton of Weapon Blueprints from previous seasons. Here’s everything you need to know about the first event, including the start date.

Call of Duty: Warzone is now into its second year, with Black Ops Cold War Season 4 being its 10th season overall. Over these seasons, a ton of cosmetic items have been offered to players such as Charms, Calling Cards, and Weapon Blueprints.

If you’ve missed out on this content, don’t worry, as Raven Software is introducing new Blueprint Blitz events where you have the opportunity to get your hands on previously released Weapon Blueprints.

Here’s when Warzone’s first Blueprint Blitz event begins, and how to get your hands on these previously-released cosmetics.

Activision hasn’t confirmed when the first Warzone Blueprint Blitz event will start, but teased that it will begin “ahead of Season Four Reloaded.” The mid-season update arrives on July 15, so expect the event in the next few days.

Raven Software will announce the exact date soon, so keep an eye out in-game and stay tuned to their Twitter account, @RavenSoftware.

What is Warzone’s Blueprint Blitz event?

The Blueprint Blitz takes place inside regular matches of Warzone, with the Contraband Contract being much more frequent.

Contraband Contracts are rare objectives that pop up in matches of Warzone. You must deliver the contract package to an area marked on the map where a helicopter will come and pick it up. If the helicopter successfully extracts the package, you’ll earn a ton of cash and a Weapon Blueprint to keep.

With the Blueprint Blitz event, you’ll have many more opportunities to do these Contraband Contracts. After completing two regular contracts, you’ll automatically be granted a Contraband to complete, which will award previous Blueprints.

Raven hasn’t revealed the line-up of Blueprints available, but previous Contraband Blueprints such as Fluid Dynamics for the Kar98k are likely.

JGOD reveals his top tip to boost your Warzone K/D & win more gunfights

JGOD has broken down his top tip to help you win more gunfights and boost your Warzone kill to death ratio.

Published

Warzone YouTuber JGOD has broken down the simple trick you can use to win more gunfights and “instantly raise your K/D.”

‘Centering’ is a term you may have heard your favorite Call of Duty and Warzone pros use, as it’s one of the most important aspects of any FPS game. Make sure your aim is ‘centered’ and already where you expect enemies to be will allow you to snap onto them much quicker, giving you the edge in gunfights.

Using examples from Warzone’s top professional players, YouTuber JGOD has broken down how important centering is to improve your K/D ratio and winning more gunfights.

What is centering in Warzone?

Centering in Warzone

As JGOD explains, centering is keeping your crosshair in the center of your screen so you’re always ready for a player to appear. This means aiming at chest height at all times where you expect enemies to be, whether that’s in doorways, windows, or out in the open. JGOD explained that sometimes that tiny adjustment you have to make if you’re not centered “is enough to lose you the gunfight.”

Using his own example, when JGOD is aiming at the floor, he has to massively adjust to aim at an enemy, and messes up his shots. He then corrects himself, centers his aim, and easily wins the fight.

He explains that controllers players tend to be the most guilty of aiming at the floor, as his own centering is much better when playing on keyboard and mouse. It could be a battle royale problem, as you’re constantly looking at the ground for loot.

JGOD Warzone centering examples

JGOD then uses top Warzone pro Tommey as an example, explaining how good centering can even correct mistakes. In the middle of a fight, Tommey expected a player to swing through a doorway and was centered ready for the player. Instead, the player dropped down one of the fireman’s poles, and because Tommey was centered, he easily adjusted his aim slightly to the right to win the gunfight.

As another perfect example of centering, JGOD analyzes DougIsRaw’s gameplay. Before Doug dropped down a ladder into the stairs of one of the apartment buildings, he took a second to center his aim to chest height. This allowed him to drop down already with perfect aim, and easily got the kill.

While centering is just instinct for Warzone’s top players, JGOD said that you’ll have to “consciously work on it day after day.” Just keep centering in mind while playing, and you’ll find your gameplay will improve immensely.

FaZe Swagg shows off powerful one-burst CX-9 loadout

FaZe Swagg has added a new attachment to his CX-9 SMG that is helping him to dominate Warzone, here’s the full loadout.

FaZe’s Kris “Swagg” Lamberson has changed up his CX-9 loadout in Warzone Season 4, and the new 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags attachment is “cooking” enemies in Call of Duty.

The new CX-9 SMG has become quite a popular weapon since it arrived in Warzone. Aside from it being new and exciting, it’s also quite a solid SMG to use in Season 4 – joining the other best SMGs to use in Warzone.

So to try and make it even more devastating than it already is, FaZe’s Swagg has come up with another spin on the CX-9. He’s added the 9mm Hollow Point 12-R Mags to his SMG, and the results have been incredible for him.

Swagg kicks off his newest video by saying: “A lot of you guys don’t know but the CX-9 actually comes with Hollow Point 12 Round Mags, it turns the gun into three-round bursts and it ups the damage a lot.

“The damage, the speed, and all that stuff too, it makes this gun hard-hitting. I was playing some duos today, and I was cooking every single person I saw, it was ridiculous.”

He then goes into the gameplay and drops a healthy 22-kill game, with many of them coming at the hands of the CX-9 and its Hollow Point rounds.

FaZe Swagg’s CX-9 Hollow Points Mag loadout & attachments

  • Barrel: CX-38S
  • Optic: G.I Mini Reflex
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 9mm Hollow Point 12-R
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand

One of the biggest selling points of the CX-9 is that already comes with a suppressor – if you equip the CX-38S barrel. This is a bonus as it frees up a slot that players otherwise normally use up to silence the weapon.

This allows Swagg to be able to use the Hollow Point rounds, and also Sleight of Hand as a Perk. It’s quite a clever addition as even though the bullets are way more powerful than standard ammo, there’s a very limited amount of them.

Sleight of Hand speeds this process up immensely and allows you to keep churning out Hollow Points at a good rate.

How to make Custom Blueprints with Cold War & Warzone’s Gunsmith Customs

With Gunsmith Customs, Cold War and Warzone lets you mix and match Blueprint attachments, so here’s how to make your own custom Blueprint.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Custom weapon blueprint

The Gunsmith Customs system is available in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, so here’s how to create your own custom Blueprints with this fan-favorite feature.

Gunsmith Customs and custom Blueprints were added to Modern Warfare and Warzone in April 2020, much to fans’ appreciation. You can also do it in Cold War, and with Cold War’s weapons in Warzone. With this feature, you can mix and match all of the Blueprint attachments for a weapon type, creating a brand new weapon Blueprint that’s unique to you.

For example, if you want to build a custom Krig 6, you can combine the barrel from the Confrontation Blueprint with the magazine from the Samurai’s Creed and the stock from the Go Getter. You can then save it as a custom Blueprint, name it, and then you can find it amongst all of your other purchased Blueprints.

How to use Custom Blueprint Mods in Black Ops Cold War

Arriving in Cold War’s mid-Season 2 update, players can now create and save several of their own custom Blueprints. This not only allows you to quickly access your crazy Blueprint combinations but also makes it easier to access your favorite loadouts without having to build them every time.

Making and saving these custom Blueprints is quite simple, so here’s how to do it:

  1. Launch Black Ops Cold War
  2. Select the ‘Weapons’ tab
  3. Choose your weapon
  4. Hover over the attachment you wish to equip
  5. Select the Gunsmith icon beside the attachment
  6. Choose the attachment style from your owned Blueprints
  7. Save and rename your custom Blueprint

Now, when creating a weapon class, you’ll be able to equip your custom Blueprint like you would any other. When you go to select your weapon, the custom Blueprint will be there alongside all of the other Blueprints you own.

If you wish to keep the weapon’s tracer fire or Mastercraft effects, you’ll need to equip that Blueprint as the base before customizing. By doing this, you can keep the blue tracer fire, but use the attachment styles from a completely different weapon, making a gun that’s entirely personalized to your style.

How to use Custom Blueprint Mods in Cold War Zombies

This also works in Black Ops Cold War Zombies. By building and saving a custom Blueprint, you can access it in rounds of Outbreak or regular Zombies such as Season 4’s Mauer Der Toten, so you can always have the attachments and look you desire.

For example, you spawn in with the M1911 for that classic Zombies experience. Then after you purchase a Gallo SA12 from the wall, you can apply either a regular Blueprint or Custom Mod to the weapon that applies all of your pre-selected attachments.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Load into a game of Cold War Zombies
  2. Either purchase your favorite weapon from the wall or get it from a Mystery Box
  3. Pause the game
  4. Select ‘Apply Blueprint’
  5. Navigate over to ‘Custom Mods’
  6. Choose the Custom Blueprint you wish to apply

This will give you not only the attachments of your choice but also the Mastery Camos you’ve grinded for.

How to use Custom Blueprint Mods in Warzone

Warzone save Custom Blueprint

Battle royale fans were disappointed that you couldn’t create Custom Blueprints for Cold War weapons in Warzone when the game first integrated. Raven Software has now added that function, so you can now have several Custom Blueprints at the ready when building your favorite loadouts.

Here’s how to build and use Custom Blueprint Mods in Warzone:

  1. Launch Call of Duty: Warzone
  2. Go to the ‘Weapons’ tab and press ‘Edit Loadout’
  3. Build your ideal weapon loadout
  4. Click ‘Save a Custom Mod’ at the bottom of the screen
  5. Rename and save your Custom Blueprint!

And to then access that Custom Blueprint:

  1. Click ‘Edit Loadout’
  2. Hover over the weapon you wish to use
  3. Select ‘Armory’ beside the weapon
  4. Choose either a regular Blueprint or your own Custom Blueprint

With Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5 arriving soon, there will be a ton more weapon Blueprints arriving in both the store and the new Battle Pass. So, you’ll get more and more weapon customization options as the seasons progress.
