The second event in the 2021 World Series of Warzone competition series will be a Trios event with players from Europe competing for the lion’s share of a $300,000 prize pool, and the EU Captains for the tournament have now been revealed.
Competitive Warzone has been extremely popular following the game’s release in 2020, with the World Series of Warzone raising the stakes to all-new levels, with a prize pool of $1,200,000 being awarded over the course of four different tournaments.
The first event was a NA Trios event that saw Team Aydan secure the victory, and the second competition will be an EU Trios event that will see a whole new group of competitors playing for a group of captains.
With this in mind, here are all of the newly revealed World Series of Warzone EU Captains.
World Series of Warzone EU Captains
These leaders were officially announced via the Call of Duty Twitter account. They will be leading their groups of players towards victory when the EU Trios tournament takes place on August 4, 2021.
This EU Trios tournament will operate similarly to the NA Trios event that took place earlier this year. All World Series of Warzone EU Captains will take part in a live snake draft on August 3, 2021. This draft will see the captains select 9 additional Trios to join their own Trios team for a total of 30 players per captain.
These captains’ teams will then compete to collect the most points together from kills and placements over the course of six games to earn their captain the Captain’s Cup victory and their teams the lion’s share of a $100,000 prize pool.
The remaining $200,000 will then be split amongst all 50 competing teams in the EU Trios event individually based on each team’s performance from kills and placements over six games.
There is no doubt that the EU Trios event will deliver a treasure trove of highlights in the same way the NA Trios event did in the next chapter of the World Series of Warzone.

New Warzone RPD stealth buff makes LMG insanely strong
The Warzone community has recently been discussing what appears to be a stealth buff for the RPD that makes the LMG even better.
The RPD appears to have gotten a stealth buff that supposedly makes the LMG much stronger in Warzone Season 6 than before.
Having said that, some players have picked up on a stealth buff for the RPD‘s recoil that was introduced in Season 6, potentially making it insanely strong.
Before this stealth buff, the RPD’s recoil acted very similar to the Cold War MP5, which meant that the recoil would stabilize and no longer continue going vertically, making it fairly easy to control after firing a certain number of shots.
Warzone RPD stealth buff
Players realized that this had changed for the RPD in Season 6, with some even claiming that the stealth change made the weapon even easier to control, becoming one of the best weapons to use.

In his most recent video, JGOD investigated this stealth buff for the RPD, testing out just how good it is now after the recoil change.
The RPD’s recoil now continues to go vertically at a consistent pace even after firing consecutive bullets, which JGOD says “actually makes the weapon easier to control, surprising.”
This is because weapons with consistent recoil patterns are generally easier to control compared to weapons with more sporadic patterns.
The RPD’s new recoil means that players don’t need to adjust their analog or mouse once they have the recoil pattern down, as it remains the same until the mag finishes.
This is ultimately the main reason players are finding success with this weapon after the change and calling it meta in Season 6.
However, according to the stats by JGOD, the RPD’s damage numbers are still not as great as some of the other Warzone Season 6 meta weapons, as its TTK falls below other options.
Further, JGOD personally feels as if the “rate of fire” is what prevents the RPD from being meta in Season 6.

Best PKM loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 6
The PKM is one of Warzone’s strongest LMGs, and with these attachments and perks, you’ll be using the best Warzone PKM loadout.
The PKM is one of the strongest LMGs in Warzone Season 6, excelling at range with a high damage potential and large magazine size, so using the best Warzone PKM loadout will help you find success.
If you’re looking for something new to try, look no further than the PKM LMG, which can keep up with any meta weapons builds. It’s especially effective against snipers as its ammunition belt allows for heavy suppressive fire.
The PKM is an excellent addition to any Warzone squad and holds its own in BR solos and the Iron Trials mode. Here are the attachments and perks to make the best Warzone PKM loadout to maximize this LMG’s potential across Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

Best Warzone PKM loadout
Best Warzone PKM loadout attachments
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: 26.9″ Extended Barrel
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
- Underbarrel: Snatch Grip
- Read more: What is Warzone Visions of Verdansk?
Stick to the outdoors or hold down buildings with this loadout, and you’ll find squads running for cover as you relentlessly rain down rounds on them.
As this PKM is built for range, the Monolithic Suppressor and 26.9″ Extended Barrel are necessary for maximizing its damage potential.
The VLK 3.0x Optic also helps with range with its solid magnification and hidden buff to recoil control. In most circumstances, 100 rounds will be enough but be careful of using the PKM out in the open as it has a slow reload time.
All these attachments, which maximize range, slow the best Warzone PKM loadout down. Adding a Tac Laser and the Snatch Grip counters these heavy attachments, vastly increasing its ADS time and recoil control.
If you get caught in an ambush or spot a sniper glint, you’ll still have time to react and get accurate shots downrange.
Best perks to use with PKM class
A Warzone loadout is nothing without its perks, so you want to run upgrades that will help you to survive in any situation.
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
Explosives are incredibly lethal in Warzone, which is why so many players run semtex as their lethal equipment. If you have any hope of surviving a barrage of explosives, you need to run E.O.D. As long as you have any armor, you’ll be able to tank explosions.
When carrying the best Warzone PKM loadout, you’ll need something for CQB in your pocket. An SMG or shotgun will be crucial to winning close-range fights, and Overkill allows you to receive two primary weapons from one loadout drop.
You’ll also want Ghost from your next loadout to keep you hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.
As the best Warzone PKM loadout is a light machine gun, it’s extremely heavy. Swapping weapons while carrying an LMG is a tedious task and will probably get you killed while in a pinch. Amped vastly increases your weapon swap speed, meaning you can almost instantly pull out a sidearm like the MP5 or FFAR.
Most recent PKM buffs and nerfs
Raven Software has not made any significant changes to the PKM LMG in some time, but we will update this section with the latest changes if they are ever made.
How to unlock the PKM
The PKM is an easy weapon to unlock in Modern Warfare and Warzone, considering it is unlocked by default. You won’t have to do anything to obtain this weapon for the best Warzone PKM loadout.
If you’re not feeling the best Warzone PKM loadout after some gameplay, you should try out some other LMG’s, like the Bruen Mk9 and the Stoner 63. Or, if you want a long-range Assault Rifle, the Kilo 141 remains a solid choice.

Top Warzone player Aydan has revealed his loadout for what he considers to be the best SMG in Warzone Season 6.
Warzone has a wide assortment of different powerful weapons that you can use in combat, and top player Aydan has revealed his loadout for the Cold War MP5, which he considers to be the best SMG in Warzone Season 6.

Aydan’s MP5 Warzone loadout
- Read More: What is Warzone Visions of Verdansk?
Here is Aydan’s MP5 Warzone loadout:
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
- Stock: Raider Stock
- Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
- Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd drum
The Agency Suppressor increases the weapon’s effective damage range, bullet velocity, recoil control, and suppresses your shots while hiding you on the minimap. This along with the Tiger Team Spotlight helps you react to enemies quickly.
Aydan attached Raider Stock and Bruiser Grip for extra mobility, and the boost to your strafe speed will help you dodge gunfire during close and medium-range combat.
Lastly, the STANAG 50 Rnd drum ensures you have plenty of ammo to mow down multiple opponents before you have to reload. With this loadout, Aydan was able to score 38 kills easily in the match.
Be sure to try this loadout for yourself the next time you jump into Verdansk. There are also other viable SMGs that you can try out like the new LAPA SMG. Content creator JGOD considers the OTS-9 to be the best SMG in Warzone, so try that out too.
