What Happened to Plunder in Call of Duty: Warzone? Fri, 23 Apr 2021 15:16:55 -0400 David Carcasole

Plunder, one of the original game modes available at launch for Call of Duty: Warzone, has once again disappeared, and fans are wondering where it's gone, at least they were until it returned with the official launch of Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Season 3. 

Plunder's return is welcomed by all fans, though its disappearance in the first place was not at all uncommon. Activision have removed Plunder from the Warzone playlist before only to bring it back, largely due to frustration from fans who missed the popular game mode.

Why Was Plunder Removed in Warzone? 

Activision have removed Plunder in the past to make room for different game modes and certain events like free multiplayer weekends for players. Plunder has also taken on other iterations like Blood Money, such as the case last year with Season 5 of Call of Duty: Warzone. It was eventually brought back in Season 6, much to the delight of fans. 

With that in mind, it's quite likely that Activision removed Plunder to prepare for the Season 3 launch event taking place between April 21-23, 2021.

The influx of players alongside Part 1 of the event, nuking Verdansk, caused servers to get overwhelmed. Whether you were playing Warzone or not, players experienced consistent issues with being able to connect to the Warzone servers and continued to face issues throughout the rest of the day. 

Servers have been up and running since earlier today (April 22), though when Part 2 of the event hit at 3 p.m. EST, Call of Duty did once again begin experiencing server issues.

Though Activision continues to try and keep the gameplay of Call of Duty: Warzone fresh for players with new game modes and balances, Plunder is a specific mode that has been a mainstay.

It's been praised both by critics and fans across the industry, even called the best part of Warzone by some. It's not a battle royale game mode, but it utilizes Verdansk's size to its advantage. With multiple cash deposit hot spots and the whole of Verdansk available to you for the entire match, it opens an entirely new avenue of play with Warzone.

To find out more about Plunder and how to dominate now that it's back, check out our handy guide for all you need to know. For more on Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Season 3 and what other changes are coming to both the multiplayer and Call of Duty Warzone, check out overview of the updates here.

How to Become Zombie in Call of Duty: Warzone Thu, 22 Apr 2021 11:50:50 -0400 Sergey_3847

Mowing down zombies in Call of Duty: Warzone is a lot of fun, but what if you could turn into a zombie yourself? This is totally possible as a part of the squad or simply as a solo player. All you need to do is follow our guide below, which explains how to become zombie in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Zombie gameplay is significantly different than otherwise since you can't use weapons, but there are some interesting options for all zombie players that can and should be used against enemy squads.

How to Become Zombie in Warzone

The key to becoming a zombie in Call of Duty: Warzone is hidden inside the two radioactive zones in the southeastern part of the map.

These two main zones are: Prison and Shipwreck.

Once you get there, here's what you need to do:

  1. Enter either of the two radioactive zones
  2. Wait for the green poisonous fog to kill you
  3. Respawn in a helicopter as a zombie

That's right, when you die inside the radioactive zones, you will not go to the Gulag as usual, but you will respawn as a zombie falling from the sky.

You will have no ammunition or parachute, but since the fall damage can't kill you there is nothing to worry about.

Once you drop to the ground you will have three attack options:

  • Charged Jump
  • Gas Grenade
  • EMP Blast

Charged Jump is really useful, as it allows you to make extremely high jumps that can get you on top of the buildings or over tall fences.

Gas Grenade functions like a smoke grenade making enemy players lose their sight of you for a short period of time.

EMP Blast can be used to destroy vehicles in a single flash, although the cooldown will take about 20 seconds.

As a zombie you will have a strong melee attack using your hands, but bullets will kill you,as well as other zombies. Once you die as a zombie, you will not go to the Gulag, but will have to start a new match.

That's all you need to know on how to become zombie in Call of Duty: Warzone. Be sure to check GameSkinny for any updates and Call of Duty: Warzone guides here.

Call of Duty: Warzone King Slayer Trios Guide Mon, 31 Aug 2020 18:56:29 -0400 JosephYaden

One of Call of Duty: Warzone's new modes, called King Slayer Trios, is absolute chaos and a ton of fun. It's effectively a deathmatch consisting of three players on each team. The gas around you changes position, and with a total of around 50 players or so vying for victory, things get hectic fast. This tips guide will lead you through it. 

The rules are simple: the first team to 100 points wins. Here's how points break down:

  • Each kill is 1 point
  • Killing a King, a high-value target marked on the map, earns you 5 points.

It's a challenging game mode to master because of how crazy things get. Killstreaks are common, meaning constant explosions are going off, and the gas around you is continually moving. However, there are a lot of things you can do to ensure you come out on top. 

Choose Your Perks Wisely

Since King Slayer Trios is such a fast-paced mode, you'll want to make sure your perks are suited to that style of gameplay.

One thing to consider is that your enemy will most likely spam the UAV. So it's a good idea to use the Ghost perk, which keeps you off the radar when a UAV is active.

On the flip side, using killstreak related perks like Pointman and Killchain aren't useful since you don't rack up killstreaks the same way you do in regular Call of Duty multiplayer. 

It's recommended to use perks that adhere to a fast mode like this one. We recommend:

  • Amped 
  • Quick Fix
  • E.O.D. 

All of these perks have a direct impact on your character, and since they speed up things like health regen and weapon swapping, they're worth using here.  

Watch Over Skull Crates For Easy Kills

A player holding a marksman rifle up, looking at the green smoke of a skull crate on the edge of a grassy hill.

While playing King Slayer Trios, you'll see care packages drop around the map. A yellow skull indicates them.

These boxes contain killstreaks, but it's often too risky to go for them since the crates show up on your enemy's screen, too.

Instead, what we'd recommend is to get a good view of one of the crates and guard it, as enemies will likely pour in trying to grab what's inside. Better yet is if you can swoop in and pick up its contents without being taken out. 

Pick up as Many Killstreaks as Possible

A player holding a marksman rifle, looking at an advanced UAV killstreak floating on the floor near a crate.

While it's tempting to always go for the next kill in any Warzone match, exploring the great indoors is a great way to find killstreaks that will help you achieve victory.

There are a few to choose from, like:

  • UAVs
  • Advanced UAVs
  • Cluster Strikes
  • Precision Airstrikes

These can be found lying around, or more commonly in supply crates. The orange Legendary crates often have multiple killstreaks, so don't ignore them when you're running around. 

Don't Ignore the Gas

A small square of the King Slayer Trios map, covered in red, showing locations and enemy positions.

As the gas moves, the safe area changes. If you aren't paying attention, you can get overrun quickly.

It's always a good idea to check the map to see where the gas is. This will not only prevent you from dying to the gas, but you can use it to your advantage by placing your back to it, creating a defensive barrier.

If there are players still caught in the gas, keep in mind that their health will be lower than normal, so be sure to take the shot if you can. 

Rocket Launchers Come in Handy

Aiming down the sight of a rocket launcher in a small room toward a player looking up.

One wild tactic you can use to get early kills is to switch to your rocket launchers while free-falling and taking a shot at those below you. It doesn't always result in a kill, but assuming your aim is decent, you can usually at least break the enemy's armor and follow up with your primary weapon. 

Aside from that, rocket launchers are tremendously useful while on the ground, too. Many times, players aren't expecting you to shoot a rocket at them, so try to take them by surprise if possible. 

So Do Snipers and Marksman Rifles

Aiming down an ACOG sight over country sheds and buildings into an open field with enemies.

Although the space you have to work with in King Slayer Trios is small, it's still big enough to warrant using a long-range weapon like a sniper. Seriously, players are often too preoccupied with what's in front of them that they don't look anywhere else. 

Use this to your advantage and find a nice spot high up. Pick people off as they land or while they're duking it out on the ground. You'll rack up kills this way, and you'll have the perfect vantage point to call in an airstrike below you. 

Make sure you add attachments to the sniper/marksman rifle that increase your speed aiming down the sights since you'll likely come across a slew of enemies in each match.

Tag Enemies as You Parachute Down

A player parachuting into the map over a grove of trees and buildings, tagging other players.

This is a simple one tip, but make sure you ping enemies as you parachute down to the ground. This can help your team grab some kills they might've otherwise missed  and it can protect them from an enemy who has them in their sights. 

While free-falling, you have a view of nearly the entire area, so spam the ping button (up on the D-pad) to let your teammates know who's near. 

Prioritize the Kings

A player parachuting onto a red tower, toward a king player in King Slayer Trios.

One of the most important tips we can give you is to go out of your way to kill Kings. These are enemies indicated by the red crown icon on your radar and can be seen carrying a flag.

You become a King when you gain a lot of kills, and killing one earns you 5 points instead of one. Additionally, you can earn killstreaks by killing a King, so it's in your best interest to make a beeline towards them to try and get the kill.

As a king, you show up on your map, regardless of if you have the Ghost perk, meaning other players will attempt to prioritize them, as well. So keep that in mind.

There's a lot of nuance involved with King Slayer Trios, but hopefully, this tips and tricks guide has helped make things a bit easier for you. For more on Warzone, be sure to check out its main hub here

Call of Duty: Warzone Mini Royale Tips and Tricks Thu, 06 Aug 2020 16:54:51 -0400 JosephYaden

Season 5 of Call of Duty: Warzone is available to download now, and it comes with lots of new content. One new feature is its Mini Royale mode, which effectively turns the game's main attraction into a faster, more simplified match.

In Mini Royale, the player count is halved, giving you 35 teams of two to three players each, totaling around 77 players. The matches play pretty much the same as the matches in the main Battle Royale mode, but with shorter run times and fewer players.

Earning a Victory Royale is still tough, but luckily, we've got all the tips and tricks you'll need to come out on top. 

Pick the Best Landing Spot

Picking the best landing spot is essential  maybe even as essential as taking out enemies. It can shape the trajectory of how your game will play out.

There are lots of great spots to land in Verdansk depending on your playstyle and the path of the plane in relation to the gas. In general, we advise that you stay away from major hubs because you're more likely to avoid getting killed.

We opt for landing near contracts so you can earn some goodies as you make your way to the center of the gas circle. Specifically, Recon and Scavenger contracts are the easiest, but if you're up for it, completing Bounties can be useful as well.

Be open to changing your landing spot before you land. If you notice a lot of people headed to your original destination, it's best to change your route and head to a less crowded area. Be sure to communicate this with your team by pinging or speaking over the mic.

Bring/Pick Up a Heartbeat Sensor

Ah, yes, the good old Heartbeat Sensor. Seriously, this thing will help you out tremendously. Of course, you can't spawn into Mini Royale with the weapons and perks of your choice, but visiting a Loadout Drop in-game will allow you to select your custom classes, which should have a Heartbeat Sensor equipped to one of them. 

The important thing to know about using the Heartbeat Sensor is that you shouldn't rely on it 100%, since enemies with the Ghost perk won't appear on the sensor's radar.

You should use it as a supplementary way to tell if enemies are near. Use sound in conjunction with the Heartbeat Sensor to give you the upper hand and make sure you call out to your team if someone appears nearby.

Pick Your Battles

It's Call of Duty. You probably want to go around massacring everyone in sight. The problem is that even if you succeed at this, you'll create a lot of unwanted attention that will likely result in getting you killed eventually.

Or maybe your reflexes are telling you to take a shot at an enemy that is really far away a shot you will likely not pull off. Instead, save your ammo, stay hidden, and let someone else take them out. 

The amount of deaths we've encountered while trying to take someone out is more than we can count. Generally speaking, we recommend to only go for the kill if you're positive you can take it — and if you're sure someone else isn't close by.

Usually, an enemy or the teammate of the person you just took out will be close by, waiting to surprise you, so it's best to play it safe. If you want to win and are iffy about your aim, it's best only to engage if an enemy is shooting at you first. 

Always Be Aware of the Gas

Little else is worse than getting swept up by the gas because you weren't paying attention to it. Don't make this mistake. Make a habit out of checking the gas when the timer in the top left reaches zero. In fact, checking it every minute or so (if possible) is a great habit to have.

As the circle gets smaller, you'll always want to put your back to the edge of the gas, while surveying the area in front of you. With the gas at your back, that's one less area you need to worry about since no one will be coming from that direction. 

The point is, don't go running off to the center right away  it will likely get you killed. 

Complete Contracts

As we mentioned above, completing contracts is a great way to gain the upper hand in Warzone. Some of them are more complicated than others, like Bounties, which require you to take out an enemy player. 

The main reason you want to complete contacts is that they reward you with a sneak peek at the next position of the circle. Every contract you complete will reward you with a glimpse at the circle's next layer, which you'll definitely want to take advantage of.

And of course, completing certain contracts will earn you cash, XP, and loot, so you'll absolutely want to do your best to finish some. 

Don't Underestimate the Power of Snipers

In Warzone, sniper rifles are hugely important, due to their range and ability to reveal enemies hiding in thick brush thanks to the Thermal scope. Even if you aren't a great shot, it's recommended to at least have one equipped so you can spot enemies from afar. 

If you do feel comfortable using a sniper, we recommend you equip the Monolithic Suppressor and aforementioned Thermal Scope, along with the highest magnification sight you have available. 

This way, you can survey a large open area or window of a tall building to see if it's safe to move forward. Having the suppressor will give you a little wiggle room if you aren't the best shot since you won't appear on the mini-map if you miss your target. 

You can have a loadout equipped with a sniper and another primary weapon if you use the Overkill perk, so be sure to do that if you want a versatile setup. Alternatively, you can replace Overkill with Ghost to negate UAVs. Just pick up a second primary from a box or dead enemy if you do. 

Coordinate With Your Team

This might seem obvious, but you'll want to communicate effectively with your team. Doing so can be the difference between winning and losing, so be sure to use a headset to talk with your squad.

If you see an enemy, make a call out, and try to pinpoint their location by either pinging or by using the compass at the top of the screen. If you formulate a plan but then notice things might go awry, tell your squad and come up with a backup plan. 

Ask your teammate if they need ammo, armor, or a specific weapon so you know what to look out for should you stumble upon something they need.

Many teammates in the games we've played have been silent, which doesn't bode well for winning the match. You can use pinging to mitigate this, but verbal communication is much more effective. 

Be Careful With Rushing to a Loadout Drop

Those pesky Loadout Drops are a blessing and a curse. Your initial instinct might be to dart towards them when they drop, but we highly advise against that.

Instead, find a nice vantage point that overlooks the box (if possible) and scope it out for a moment or two. You'd be surprised how many players will make a beeline for the Loadout Drop, only to be taken out while they're picking their equipment. 

At the same time, you can be the one taking enemies out as they choose their Loadout, which is where the silenced sniper comes into play. Once you've determined it's safe, go in, quickly grab your Loadout (we recommend to place your Warzone class first so you don't have to scroll down to it), and make your getaway.

Keep in mind, you can purchase a Loadout Drop from a Buy Station for $10,000, but we strongly advise against that since you won't be making as much cash in Mini Royale as you would in a normal round of Battle Royale.

Spending $10,000 is hard to justify when there are better items you can purchase for less. Just wait for the Loadout Drops to spawn if you want to save your cash. 


With these tips and tricks, you should now be more prepared for Warzone's new Mini Royale game mode. For more on Warzone, take a look at the main hub here

How to Get the Cryo Dismemberment in Call of Duty: Warzone Thu, 18 Jun 2020 14:58:27 -0400 JosephYaden

Call of Duty has evolved so much since its inception in 2003. As part of Warzone's latest Season 4 update, you'll gain access to a slew of new features, one of which is called Cryo Dismemberment. This is a weapon effect that, as the name suggests, allows you to freeze and dismember your enemy's limbs. It's a little brutal, but par for the course for a Call of Duty game. 

Acquiring Cryo Dismemberment is fairly straightforward, but there are some things you need to know about it. In this guide, we'll explain how to get Cryo Dismemberment in Warzone, along with other useful information about the effect. 

How to Get the Cryo Dismemberment in Call of Duty: Warzone

How to Acquire Cryo Dismemberment

You have to buy the Wendigo pack in Warzone to get Cryo Dismemberment.

Unfortunately, there is no way to get your hands on Cryo Dismemberment without purchasing the Wendigo Operator Pack for 2,400 COD Points (equivalent to $19.99). Better start saving your points now if you want to get it!

The pack includes the following goodies:

  • Taiga  Kreuger Skin
  • Psychosis  Assault Rifle
  • Evil Manifest  Submachine Gun
  • Sasquach  Operator Finishing Move
  • Crevasse (Icepick)  Melee
  • Abominable  Charm
  • What they Send  Kreuger Quip
  • Polar Pal  Calling Card
  • Snowball Smiles  Emblem
  • Out in the Cold  Spray

As you can see, the theme of this pack is "cold." While the pack comes with a lot to enjoy, the two items you'll want to look out for are the Psychosis and the Evil Manifest blueprints, both of which come equipped with Cryo Dismemberment. 

Which Weapons Support Cryo Dismemberment

Psychosis  FN Scar 17

The Psychosis assault rifle is one of the guns that uses Cryo Dismemberment in Warzone.

The first weapon blueprint that gives you access to Cryo Dismemberment is the Psychosis, which corresponds to the FN Scar 17. This is already one of the best weapons in the game, and the Psychosis blueprint gives it effective attachments and a bit of flare so you can take out the competition in style. 

It includes:

  • Muzzle  Compensator
  • Stock  FSS Close Quarters Stock
  • Underbarrel  Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition  30-round Mags
  • Rear Grip — Stippled Grip Tape

Its white finish and Abominable Snowman charm fit the theme, and it'll allow you to de-limb any of your enemies. This weapon is highly recommended for those who like to engage in medium-range combat. 

Evil Manifest Stiker 45 (UMP)

The Evil Manifest is a UMP that uses Cryo Dismemberment in Warzone.

The second weapon blueprint that includes Cryo Dismemberment is the Evil Manifest, which is tied to the Striker 45 (aka UMP). Much like the Psychosis, this is one of the best weapons in the game, giving you a slow rate of fire in exchange for high damage, especially up close. 

Here's what it includes:

  • Muzzle v Compensator
  • Barrel — 300mm Poly Barrel
  • Underbarrel  Operator Foregrip
  • Ammunition  45-round Mags
  • Rear Grip  FTAC 60 Series Rubber

Remember, you can swap out the attachments as you see fit, but overall, it's got a solid list. The 45-round mags are great for those who like to get into the thick of things, whereby you can take out multiple enemies in a row without reloading. 

How Cryo Dismemberment Works in Warzone

There isn't anything you need to do differently in-game to use the Cryo Dismemberment effect. Simply fire at an enemy and the weapon will take care of the rest. After you get the kill, you can walk over to the body to see their limbs — or lack thereof. 

This is a purely aesthetic effect, but one that you'll likely want to try since it's so over-the-top and brutal.

Warzone C4 Guide: How to Throw C4 Farther, Detonate It Faster Thu, 18 Jun 2020 13:08:16 -0400 JosephYaden

While playing Call of Duty: Warzone, you'll likely come across a myriad of weapons and equipment you don't normally use in the traditional multiplayer modes. That's sort of the beauty of Warzone. One piece of equipment you should absolutely learn how to use is C4, which can be used to set traps or just straight-up thrown at an enemy to take them out quickly and efficiently. 

In this Warzone C4 guide, we'll show you how to find C4, how to throw it farther, and how to detonate it faster.

Warzone C4 Guide: How to Throw C4 Farther, Detonate It Faster

How to Get C4 in Call of Duty: Warzone

C4 can be found on the ground, in common boxes, and loadout drops in Call of Duty Warzone.

Unlike traditional Modern Warfare multiplayer, Infinity Ward doesn't let you spawn in with the loadout of your choice in Warzone, but that doesn't mean you can't get your hands on C4.

The easiest way to get C4 is to simply find it out in the world. You'll likely come across a stash of weapons and items in boxes, so make sure you initiate contracts to ensure finding the best loot. 

C4 can be found in common boxes, as well as on its own in Verdansk. It's recommended to prioritize visiting buildings and other main hubs to try and find some. When you do find it, you have to manually pick it up with "Square" on PS4 or "X" on Xbox One. 

Alternatively, you can equip your own loadouts from Loadout Drops that spawn. Just make sure you have C4 added to the class beforehand. Loadout Drops spawn randomly or can be purchased from Buy Stations, though they're pretty expensive. 

How to Throw C4 Farther

Jump and aim at a 45-degree angle to throw C4 farther in Warzone.

After you finally do get your hands on the C4, you'll be ready to use it. It works a lot like a grenade, in that it can be thrown at an enemy, but it only detonates if you pull the trigger. 

There are lots of ways to use C4 effectively, but most players treat it like a manual grenade thrown at an enemy and detonated right away. C4 does massive amounts of damage and, if used properly, can be more effective than a grenade since you can throw and detonate it immediately.

To throw C4 farther, jump in the air and look up at a 45-degree angle. This will allow the C4 to arc and cover more ground. Throwing it far isn't always necessary, though.

In fact, sometimes you'll need to throw it right beside you to take out an enemy. If you do, make sure you get out of the way since C4 has a large damage radius

One useful strategy is to place a C4 on a loadout drop in a heavily populated area and wait for the enemy to show up. It can be tricky to pull off, but if done correctly, it's pretty much a guaranteed kill. Traps like these work better in the traditional multiplayer mode, but can still be executed in Warzone

How to Detonate C4 Faster

You can instantly detonate C4 in Warzone by double-tapping Square (PS4) or X (Xbox One).

Initially, you might want to throw the C4 and detonate it by pulling the trigger. This can be done by throwing it with "R1" on PS4 or "RB" on Xbox One, followed by "R2" or "RT." 

However, there is a faster, more effective way to secure the kill. If you double-tap "Square" on PS4 or "X" on Xbox One after throwing the C4, it will detonate instantly, which is much faster than pulling the trigger. 

If you're going to use this method, make sure you wait until you're out of its blast radius, as you can down yourself with your own C4 if you're too close.

Call of Duty Warzone Fractured Intel Missions Guide Mon, 15 Jun 2020 18:29:19 -0400 JosephYaden

One of the new features of Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 is the inclusion of Fractured Intel missions, which send you on a hunt for collectibles across Verdansk. In our Call of Duty Warzone Fractured Intel missions guide, we'll show you where to find all seven Intel files, as well as tell you what they do.

Many fans are speculating that these pieces of Intel might be a part of a larger Easter egg, similar to those found in the famous Black Ops series. At this point, it's unclear if that's true, but what we do know is that you get a decent chunk of XP for finding all of them.

The other thing to note is that you must visit the Challenges sub-menu from the game's main menu, followed by Intel, to view the piece you're looking for. To view Intel, press

  • "Triangle" on PS4
  • "Y" on Xbox One

Only after you've viewed the Intel will it spawn on the map.

After you find a piece of Intel, you must quit back to the main menu to view the next one, so it'll spawn in-game. That means you can't just grab all of them in one go, unfortunately. 

You also have to discover each piece of Intel in the order listed below. The game will not allow you to skip around. Here's where to find them. We include screenshots of both the map and the actual location. 

Call of Duty Warzone Fractured Intel Missions Guide

Intel 1: TV Station  Find the location in the message Ghost sent you

CoD Warzone Fractured Intel 1 Map Location

Fractured Intel 1 in-game location TV Station.

The first piece of Intel is found inside the TV Station on the eastern side of the map. Unfortunately, the TV Station is usually heavily populated, so it's recommended to land close to it and wait a little while before heading inside.

If you try to grab the Intel immediately after you land, you'll probably be ambushed. 

To find it, head to the large broadcast room with all the monitors. You can find this first piece on a desk, close to a yellow railing. It's on the western side of the desk near the green screen

Intel 2: Airport Terminal  Evacuations were underway...

CoD Warzone Fractured Intel 2 Map Location

Fractured Intel 2 in-game location Airport north.

For the second piece of Intel, you'll need to head to the main terminal in the Airport, inside an area with a brown desk station. If you're facing North while inside the terminal, it's in between the Economy and Business Class entrance. 

The Intel is found at the beginning of a long, narrow section that protrudes north. You can grab it without hopping over the brown desk area. 

Intel 3: Airport Control Tower — Communications went down before the attack. Follow the trail...

CoD Warzone Fractured Intel 3 Map Location

Fractured Intel 3 in-game location airport control tower.

Next, you'll find the third piece of Intel in the Airport at the top of the large control tower. When you jump out of the plane, make sure you land in the actual control room and not on the roof

The Intel is located in the southern section of the room, facing the Airport itself. 

Intel 4: Military Base (Crashed Plane)  Verdansk ATC reported a transponder went offline...

CoD Warzone Fractured Intel 4 Map Location

Fractured Intel 4 downed plane map.

Fractured Intel 1 in-game location inside plane.

Following that, is Intel number 4, which is located south of the Military Base in a crashed plane. The Intel is in the western-most section of the plane, where the nose is located.

You can find the Intel in between two seats, on the plane's right side.

After you've found all six pieces of Intel, you'll be rewarded with the seventh and final piece, along with 10,000 XP for your troubles. 

The areas where the Intel is located are usually busy as it is, but after the recent update, you'll likely find even more players around. For this reason, it's recommended you be extra cautious. Don't zero in on a location as soon as you land, because someone might be right next to you. 

Once you've landed, scout the area and make sure there aren't any enemies. As soon as you pick up the Intel, you'll get a message from Ghost in the top right of the screen. At this point, you're safe to quit out to the main menu to go for the next one.

Call of Duty: Warzone Rumble Tips and Tricks Fri, 12 Jun 2020 18:17:51 -0400 JosephYaden

As part of Call of Duty: Warzone's most recent update (corresponding with Season 4 of Modern Warfare), players were introduced to a host of new features. One of which is the new Warzone Rumble game mode, which is described as "large-scale Team Deathmatch in areas around Verdansk." This mode is free to all users, so long as you have Warzone downloaded.

As you might expect, it plays differently than regular Team Deathmatch. For one thing, the maps themselves are pulled from sections of the larger Warzone stage  many of which don't necessarily lend themselves to head-to-head Deathmatch play (though there is a map built from the ground up with this game mode in mind).

Each match you play features a circular battle area, with a rotating set of predetermined stages to enjoy. Instead of the regular spawnpoint you'd see in traditional multiplayer, all players spawn in the air and must land using a parachute. This creates an interesting new spin on things that requires you to use a different strategy than you might be used to. 

Since Rumble plays so differently from regular Deathmatch, you might be struggling to score a victory. Still, luckily, we've got plenty of Call of Duty: Warzone Rumble tips and tricks that will hopefully help improve your performance. 

Call of Duty: Warzone Rumble Tips and Tricks

Get Used to Sniping

Sniping is a good alternative to close-quarters fighting, but is hard to do.

Most stage layouts in Rumble are near-tailormade for snipers. When you land, you can probably aim down your sniper scope and see at least one enemy in your sights, in almost any direction you look. 

If you decide to go this route, it's recommended to come equipped with a thermal scope to spot enemies that are far away quickly. You'd be amazed at just how well you can do if you sit back, take your time, and pick enemies off from afar. 

If you're more of a run and gunner, this might not be for you. But from our experience, a large portion of each team found success in sitting back with a sniper, rather than getting up close. 

Come to Rumble Equipped with the Right Loadout

Bring the right loadout to Rumble for close-quarters fighting.

Not all maps are designed with only snipers in mind, though. Some sections force you into close-quarters encounters, so it's a good idea to come equipped with the right loadout. 

Since there are so many enemies in a given area at once, it's not as necessary to come equipped with a suppressor. Likewise, if you're coming into contact with enemies at long distances, a shotgun might not be the best choice.

The point is that although these maps take place in huge open areas, there's room for experimentation with your weapons.

We had lots of luck with the FR 5.56 (FAMAS) since it features a deadly three-round burst, perfect for medium- to long-range shots. Additionally, the .357 Magnum with Snake Shot ammunition effectively turns a handgun into a shotgun, giving you a versatile loadout to come out on top.

Along with that, you should bring useful Field Upgrades to help you out. A Recon Drone won't be as valuable as Stopping Power Rounds since enemies are a dime a dozen, and having higher damage output is way more useful.

It's the same with Tactical Insertion since you can only spawn in the air. Try to gravitate towards Field Upgrades that directly impact your weapon, or possibly come equipped with a Trophy System to deflect throwables

Circle Around to the Enemy's Spawn

Encircle the enemy spawn point in Rumble for quick kills.

It's really easy to run right to the enemy ahead of you, but you'll likely find more success if you circle around to the enemy's spawn, alongside the edge of the map. It takes longer to do this, but your patience will pay off.

Since most players will focus on battling it out in the center of the map, you'll find less traffic along the edge, and you'll probably even come up behind certain foes. Take this opportunity to grab some easy kills, but be sure to stay in cover.

In Rumble, you spawn above and must land using a parachute, so your opponents will have the upper hand if you get too close to where they spawn. If you pick a good enough spot, you can pick off several enemies without the team even really knowing you're there. 

Pay Attention to the Your Location on the Map

Use your map in Rumble to get your bearings.

Since the maps are massive circular areas, it can sometimes be hard to tell where you are in relation to the enemy's spawn You do have access to a mini-map, but things can blur together when trying to use it. 

That's why it's recommended to press the pause button to view your location. Here, you'll see the map in its entirety, which will help you decide where you are in relation to your team and your enemies. This is a quick tip that can potentially get you out of trouble quickly. 

Deploy Your Parachute Right Away

Parachuting early can help you survey the battlefield.

This is another quick tip, but it's still a great habit to get into. As soon as you gain control of your character, mash the button to deploy your parachute. This will keep you in the air for longer and give you much more space to land closer to your enemy. Or you can use it as an opportunity to scout the other team, or even land near a safe spot to set up shop.

Either way, we recommend avoiding free-falling since you'll cover less ground. You'll end up closer to your spawn and farther away from the enemy if you don't deploy your chute right away.

Equip the Right Perks

Picking the right perks is important in Rumble because some work better than others.

This is an expansion on one of the earlier tips in this guide, but it's so important it deserves its own entry. Make sure you come equipped with useful perks. Things like Kill Chain and Pointman are useless since there are no killstreaks in Rumble.

We recommend using Cold-Blooded to make it harder for enemies with thermal scopes to spot you, Overkill to give you a second primary weapon, and Amped to swap weapons faster. 

There are obviously other perk combinations you can use. Just make sure you take note of them and pick ones that actually work since there are a handful of useless combinations. 

Don't Forget About Vehicles

Don't forget Warzone has vehicles. Use them.

Rumble features vehicles, and they're usually found by your spawn. If you do happen to free fall right to the ground, there's probably a vehicle around for you to jump in. Just make sure you don't drive it directly to a densely populated area, as you'll be a sitting duck.

The Smoke/Thermal Scope Combo Does Wonders

Use smoke grenades and thermal scopes in tandem to get kills in Rumble.

Combing a smoke grenade and a thermal scope in Rumble almost feels like cheating. From one smoke grenade, we were able to pull off five kills against enemies who had no idea we were even there. This is especially useful when you pinpoint a highly-populated area, where enemies congregate. 

Some foes might catch on and equip their own thermal to combat you, but for the most part, this is an extremely effective strategy that almost guarantees kills if you're moderately decent with a sniper.

CoD Warzone Fennec and CR-56 Amax: How to Get Them Fri, 12 Jun 2020 17:33:59 -0400 Daniel Hollis

If you've been playing Call of Duty: Warzone recently, you're probably aware of the recent update that released alongside Modern Warfare Season 4, which brings new maps and modes to the game's battle royale component. But most importantly, Season 4 adds new toys to the game's arsenal in the Fennec and CR-56 Amax. 

Since most of your time in Call of Duty: Warzone is spent chasing down your enemies, you'll undoubtedly want more weapons in your arsenal to deliver the pain. Luckily, the update adds a few new guns to get to that end, but unlocking them is not as easy as simply downloading the new update. 

How to Get the CoD Fennec and CR-56 Amax in Warzone

The CoD Warzone Fennec unlocks at Season 4 Battle Pass Level 15.

Getting the Fennec and CR-56 Amax in Call of Duty: Warzone requires a little bit of time, but nothing too major. Both are machine guns; the Fennec is described as being an "aggressive auto sub-machine gun" while the CR-56 Amax is said to be a "lightweight full-auto assault rifle."

To unlock both of these guns, you're going to need to progress through the Warzone Battle Pass ranks, which is a tiered leveling system gifting players new items and unlocks as they progress.

The first gun you'll be able to unlock is the Fennec, which is available once you reach Battle Pass Level 15. The CR-56 Amax will be available at Battle Pass Level 31. Once both have been unlocked, you'll be able to add them to your loadouts and use them on the battlefield.

Ranking through the Battle Pass is as simple as getting kills, completing challenges, and assisting teammates. The more XP you receive per match, the quicker you'll obtain the Fennec and the CR-56 Amax.

The CoD Warzone CR-56 Amax unlocks at Season 4 Battle Pass Level 31.

Season 4 of Call of Duty: Warzone has shifted things up quite a bit, adding new elements to the game, such as Firesale, which discounts items at buy stations for a limited time, or Jailbreak, which brings back every eliminated player, including those from the Gulag.

Call of Duty: Warzone Contraband Contracts Guide Fri, 12 Jun 2020 11:44:41 -0400 JosephYaden

As part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's Season 4 update, its battle royale component, Warzone, has gotten some new content, as well. One of the new additions is Warzone Contraband Contracts, which offer players a unique way to earn loot and goodies to help survive against the enemy. 

However, Warzone doesn't do a great job of explaining how the new contracts work. In our Contraband Contracts guide below, we'll explain what they are, how to initiate them, and how to complete them effectively.

Call of Duty: Warzone Contraband Contracts Guide

Accepting a Most Wanted contraband contract in Call of Duty Warzone.

What are Contraband Contracts?

Contraband Contracts are a new type of Contract in Call of Duty: Warzone. Specifically, they give you the chance to earn a new weapon blueprint by collecting the contraband and delivering it to the LZ. It's similar to delivering cash in the Plunder game mode. 

The blueprint will then be added to your list, giving you new weapon types to try out later on. These weapon blueprints are exclusive to Contraband Contracts, so if you want a new shiny weapon to show off to your friends, you'll need to complete these contracts. 

How to Find Contraband Contracts in Warzone

Contraband Contracts are marked with a blue icon with an arrow in Warzone.

Finding Contracts isn't too complicated, but you'll need to have some patience. Unfortunately, they only appear as random drops after completing a regular contract, so make sure you complete as many as possible.

In our first game in Season 4, we had to complete two contracts before a Contraband Contract appeared. After that, we completed four contracts and couldn't get one to spawn. In other words, it truly is random.

You'll be able to spot a Contraband Contract by an icon indicated by a blue arrow pointing up. It will appear as a blue box, so grab it to start the contract.

If you're having trouble, it's recommended to work with a team to complete the easier contracts like Scavenger Hunt and Recon. If you're really good at the game, you may be able to blow through the Bounty Hunter contracts, but those are far more skill-dependent. 

We had much better luck when the whole team was working towards completing contracts, as opposed to going solo. 

Keep in mind, other players can take you out and steal your Contraband Contract, and vice-versa. If you're an aggressive player, this might be the best way to go about obtaining one. 

How to Complete Warzone Contraband Contracts

You'll need to drop contraband contracts off at the helicopter after it lands at the LZ.

The hardest thing about Contraband Contracts is actually finding them. Once you've initiated the contract, you'll be tasked with delivering the contraband to the LZ, where a helicopter will land and collect it. Do it quickly, because other players can steal it from you.

Once you get to the LZ, you'll need to drop off the goods and wait for the chopper to arrive. Make sure you're in a safe place where you can not only watch the chopper, but also other enemies who may be scouting you out. When the chopper arrives, run up to the LZ and interact with it once more to acquire a sweet new blueprint.

You'll need to go back to the main menu to equip it, just like with other blueprints.

Call of Duty: Warzone Bunker 11 — How to Find It and the Hidden Phones Wed, 20 May 2020 16:56:17 -0400 Daniel Hollis

By now you've probably heard the news about multiple vaults across Call of Duty: Warzone's map opening up for players. But what you may not have heard about is the secret Bunker 11, or the mysterious phones used to unlock it. 

The 11th vault is one begging for players to unearth its secrets. While the other bunkers and vaults require randomly dropped red access key cards to unlock, this particular one requires a different approach. We're here to help you be well on your way to venturing inside.

How to Access Bunker 11 in Call of Duty: Warzone

Bunker 11 Location

One of the first things you're going to want to know is where the 11th bunker actually is. The picture of the map below will help you find it. It's the area marked in blue, in the extreme north of Verdansk

How to Unlock Bunker 11

The process for unlocking the vault is a lot more complicated than the other 10, but it's perhaps less reliant on luck. It involves finding multiple phones that must correspond. To break it down, you must do the following:

  • You must first locate a phone that provides you with an activation code in Morse code.
  • The Morse code relates to other phones, which are registered to a particular Russian number.
  • You must activate the three phones that the code is referring to in order.
  • Once this is done, the bunker is unlocked.
How to Find the Phones and Decipher the Code

It might seem a ridiculously hard task to accomplish, especially if you don't speak Russian. However, Reddit user, StrangerRobjin, has broken it down easily for players by labeling the phones with the particular code they're associated with.

Below is their guide which easily showcases the multiple phones across the map and how to decipher the code. Click the image below to expand:

It's a lot simpler than it looks and this easy to digest guide is your best bet at being able to crack the code and raid the vault.

What's Inside the Bunker 11?

You're probably wondering if all this effort is worth it. Inside bunker 11, you will find an exclusive blueprint for the Mud Drauber MP7. Alongside that is a multitude of Easter eggs, which seem to reference the popular Call of Duty: Black Ops series and perhaps teasing the next upcoming Call of Duty game.

This video by YouTuber, eColiEspresso, showcases the entirety of the 11th bunker and what secrets it holds:

It's yet to be seen if these vaults will play into anything bigger, but the inclusion of this secret 11th bunker seems to point to more Easter egg hunts to come.

That's it on how to unlock Bunker 11 in Call of Duty: Warzone. For more on Activision's latest battle royale title, be sure to check out our other Warzone guides

Call of Duty: Warzone Bunker Locations Wed, 20 May 2020 14:20:45 -0400 Daniel Hollis

If you've been diving into Call of Duty: Warzone regularly, you've more than likely come across several mysterious bunkers. These bunker locations have been locked with seemingly no access, but the recent update this week has rectified that, giving players access to these vaults.

Now, you are able to unravel their secrets and gain access to each of them. Each bunker contains an assortment of chests and goodies to give you an advantage in the coming battle. These vaults also contain another locked door which as of now is inaccessible, but could become available in future updates.

How to Open bunkers in Call of Duty: Warzone

Gather Red Access Key Cards

Unfortunately, getting a red access key card requires a bit of skill and foraging across the map. You'll need to scrounge through multiple crates across Verdansk in the hopes of scoring one. Players seem to believe that legendary crates have a higher drop rate, but you're able to receive one from any type of crate. 

It's also worth noting that picking up scavenger missions will highlight specific crates to you and your squad, so it's worth diving into a few of those too.

Call of Duty: Warzone Bunker Locations

There are 10 bunkers across the map that are unlocked by using the red access key card. The map below showcases each of the bunker locations:

Once you've gathered a red access key card, simply make your way to the nearest bunker to use it. The key cards aren't bunker specific, so you can use them on any bunker or vault of your choosing.

How to Unlock Bunkers and Vaults in Call of Duty: Warzone

Gathering the red access key card is the hardest step, unlocking them is easy in comparison. 

Outside of each bunker is a keypad, which up until this point has proven useless. With the red access key card, though, you'll be able to easily interact with the keypad to unlock the vault and plunder its contents.


Whether more secrets lie inside these bunker locations remains to be seen, but be sure to check GameSkinny for any updates and Call of Duty: Warzone guides here.

How to Use a Controller in Call Of Duty Warzone on PC Tue, 12 May 2020 17:16:37 -0400 Daniel Hollis

While playing on a PC may give you the best graphical advantage in Call of Duty Warzone, there's no denying the comfort and accessibility of being able to use a controller for the optimum experience. So if you're wondering how to use a controller in Call of Duty Warzone, you've come to the right place. 

Call of Duty Warzone supports cross-play and while many console players might believe having a PC is an advantage, sometimes a controller can give you the upper hand on mouse and keyboard. With Call of Duty Warzone, you can link a controller to use in battle, and though it's easy, it's not always exactly clear how to do so.

Having the simple satisfaction of an Xbox One controller or even a Dualshock 4 can mean the difference between life and death, dependent on which one you feel more comfortable with. That's not to mention that certain controller attachments are just as good, if not better, for some players as the most advanced mouse and keyboard combo. 

How to Use a Controller in Call Of Duty Warzone on PC

So, how do you do it? It's actually a fairly simple process and all it requires is a few basic steps.

  • First of all, simply connect the controller of your choice to your PC.
  • Load up Call of Duty Warzone via your mouse and keyboard.
  • Once in-game, go into the in-game options menu.
  • Select the "general" tab.
  • Here you can switch your input device. Select the controller option.
  • You are now able to play Call of Duty Warzone via your controller.

As with any new controller setup, you may need to adjust your sensitivity and aiming controls to make it as comfortable as possible, but you're now well on your way to being able to use your controller on a PC for Call of Duty Warzone.

If you don't know how to connect a DualShock 4 to your PC, we've got you covered here. You can check this article for how to connect an Xbox One controller to PC.

In the meantime, Windows 10 is optimized to recognize Xbox controllers. If you have a wired option, simply plug it into a USB port on your PC, and you should be good to go. If you have a wireless Xbox One controller, you'll need a separate USB dongle, which you can get for relatively cheap. 

For a Bluetooth setup, you'll need Bluetooth on your PC. If you don't have Bluetooth built into your PC, you can by adapters ad various prices. 


That's it for our guide on how to use a controller in Call of Duty Warzone on PC, but that's not it for our content on the game.

How to Link Call of Duty Mobile to Warzone Mon, 11 May 2020 12:29:47 -0400 Daniel Hollis

A little known tip many players don't know is that you can link Call of Duty Mobile to Call of Duty Warzone. By linking both games together, you are able to unlock special rewards in Call of Duty Mobile in the form of Warzone Coins.

It's quick, simple, and easy to do. Here's a rundown of how to link the two games and be well on your way to earning some rewards.

How to Link Call of Duty Mobile to Warzone

Steps to Link Call of Duty Mobile to Warzone

First, you will need to create a Call of Duty/Activision account if you haven't already done so. Once you create an account, or if you already have one, follow the steps below: 

  • Download both games 
  • Log into both games with the same Activision account
  • Once your account is associated with both games, complete the tutorial in Call of Duty Warzone 

The Warzone Coins should be delivered to your CoD Mobile inbox within three days. Wait for the next opportunity for the coins to be spent. They will be found in your mailbox, which can be found in the top options rail in Call of Duty Mobile, just to the left of the settings and friends icons. 

What is a Warzone Coin?

A Warzone Coin is a unique form of currency that is gathered by linking the two games together. Unfortunately, it's a timed promotion that has appeared twice so far since Call of Duty Warzone's launch. However, it's not a stretch to say there won't be more promotional periods in the future.

The coins so far have enabled players to purchase a special Task 141 Solider in Call of Duty Mobile. These characters are skins of classic Call of Duty Modern Warfare characters, most notably, Ghost, Captain Price, and Gaz.


It's pretty simple to link you Call of Duty Mobile account to Warzone, and doing so early negates any hassle when Warzone Coin promotions appear.

How to Fix Call of Duty Warzone Memory Error 13-71 Mon, 11 May 2020 11:36:26 -0400 Daniel Hollis

There's nothing better than settling down for an evening of Call of Duty Warzone with your friends to fight it out and be the last team standing. So nothing is more infuriating than being hit with Memory Error 13-71. The error essentially makes the game unplayable, preventing you from entering its online components and bricking the game. 

Multiple users have reported hitting this issue, all airing their frustrations on forums and comments sections as Activision hasn't yet managed to permanently identity and fix the issue.

Many say that the issue has to do with Regiments, which essentially are the game's version of clans. But don't fret: There are a few methods that can help you get passed the error and have you dropping back into the action in no time.

How to Fix Call Of Duty Warzone Memory Error

How to Fix Memory Error 13-71: Option 1

The above video from Gaming Gameplay details one of the ways in which you can potentially bypass the error, which includes using a second account. A simple outline of the method goes like so:

  • Create a new account with a different email address.
  • Load up Call of Duty Warzone while logged into this new account.
  • Proceed to the multiplayer menu (the error message shouldn't appear).
  • Once in, switch accounts on your console to the one you wish to play with.
  • Now, leave the regiment that you're associated with.

You should now be ready good to go. It's also worthwhile enabling the option to block regiment invites to be safe. Hopefully, this works, but if the issue is still affecting you, there are a few other methods that might work. 

How to Fix Memory Error 13-71: Option 2

This option is similar to the first one and ensures that you leave your regiment, albeit through different means.

  • Load up Call of Duty Warzone.
  • Proceed until you receive the error message.
  • Accept the error message.
  • Once accepted, the game will attempt to put you online
  • At this point, cancel it.
  • Two options appear: Retry or Go Offline. Press Go Offline.
  • Go to the account option and disable cross-play.
  • Boot up Call of Duty Warzone again.
  • When it asks you to enable cross-play, ignore it.
  • Go to the regiments tab.
  • Leave your regiment.
  • Disable invites again.
  • Now allow cross-play and Call of Duty Warzone should now be working.

If this still isn't working for you, there's one last option that isn't ideal, but some users have reported that it has rectified the issue.

How to Fix Memory Error 13-71: Option 3

This option is simply deleting the game off your system and redownloading the whole game again. It's a hefty task, with a file size larger than most games, but users have tried this as a last resort and reported that it's fixed the problem.


While it's not an immediate fix, it's always a good idea to report the issue to Activision in the hopes for a patch or fix within the coming weeks. The more reports they receive, the more likely they are to patch the issue faster. 

If this Call of Duty memory error has affected you or you've found another workaround, let us know in the comments below!

Call of Duty: Warzone Best Landing Spots Mon, 16 Mar 2020 11:30:56 -0400 Mark Delaney

Call of Duty: Warzone has arrived, and it's quickly taken the gaming world by storm. Luckily for you, you're in on the ground floor of Activision's big experiment, which means you can become an expert while others jump in over the next several quarantined months ahead. That's where we come in to help. Use our guide to locate the best landing spots in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Boasting over 6 million players on day one, the free-to-play battle royale surged to overtake the previous record held by Apex Legends, which impressively climbed to 2.5 million players on its first day.

But nothing captures the zeitgeist quite like Call of Duty, so it's no wonder Warzone has been massive thus far. On top of that, it's only projected to get bigger. 

Best Landing Spots in Call of Duty: Warzone


Call of Duty Warzone Landing Zone Quarry

Recommended for: players who want to catch their breath when they land.

Karst River Quarry, labeled simply "Quarry" on your map, should appeal first and foremost to players who like to avoid the mad dash at the start of a level.

Being in the northeastern corner of the map means it tends to be quieter unless the infantry plane's flight pattern is especially welcoming. There's not a lot of indoor areas to see, but with a ton of verticality, it offers some of the best snipers' perches in Verdansk.


Call of Duty Warzone Landing Zone Hospital

Recommended for: coordinated teams looking to get to the chopper.

The hospital has several benefits, one of the best being the helicopter on the roof. It's a highly sought after vehicle, of course, so don't drop here without a coordinated team. You won't be alone.

But with a strong interior layout that isn't as labyrinthine and confusing as neighboring regions, hospital offers a rewarding vertical interior and an expansive ground floor with great loot. It's sort of the best of both worlds for players who can't decide whether to stay low or scale a skyscraper. 


Call of Duty Warzone Landing Zone Lumber

Recommended for: lone wolves dreaming of better teamwork.

The Gorengard Lumberyard is quickly becoming one of my favorite drops, and it slightly pains me whenever the initial flight path sets me too far off to make it a viable drop.

Provided you can get there easily, its mix of big and small buildings and a more natural aesthetic outside of them makes it suitable for tons of playstyles. Stealthy players have their options here, while loot hounds can quickly access the region's abundant crates.

I like this drop so much that when I'm playing with randoms who don't coordinate a team landing, I just come here on my own, and I still do well. 


Call of Duty Warzone Landing Zone Farmland

Recommended for: players who want all the loot of Downtown with half the traffic.

Naturally, the most rural of all settings on Verdansk, Farmland offers a rare mix of extensive loot drops with some lovely seclusion. Set off on the far southwest of the map  the only thing further is the lowly Prison, which we'll get to shortly  Farmland offers plenty of interiors and a fun mix of open spaces and close-knit buildings.

When you aren't alone, it's one of the best cat-and-mouse sections on the map, and if you are alone, you get to enjoy the many crates to yourself. Just watch out for Downtown droppers who may head your way next if the gas pushes them east.

Promenade West/East

Call of Duty Warzone Landing Zone Promenade East/West

Recommended for: campers, sneaks, and saboteurs.

So far, I like to call the two Promenade regions the most overlooked and underrated areas of Warzone. Southwest of Hospital and the ever-busy Downtown, these urban regions don't task you with scaling massive structures to clear buildings.

Instead, you get many smaller buildings, which makes listening for that sweet loot crate sound easier than heading up 20 flights of stairs. If your favorite part about Warzone is its refreshing focus on city aesthetics in a genre dominated by grassy hills, Promenade East and West both give you the city living experience without the high prices (see: your life).

Landing Spots to Avoid

Landing Zones to avoid in Call of Duty Warzone

Like all battle royale games, there are always places you may want to shy away from as well. Once again, it really depends on your playstyle, as I know people who like to hot-drop the most chaotic areas to quench their bloodlust. But I think most people prefer a smart drop where they can loot up and not die 15 seconds later.

If that describes you, there are a few places to dodge. Namely, these are Downtown, Stadium, and Storage Town.


We've already mentioned Downtown disparagingly in this guide and for good reason. If you've played PUBG, think of Downtown as Pochinki. It's the hottest drop, where so many teams land, and only one ever seems to exit intact. They're bad odds to play.


Stadium, meanwhile, looks really cool and gives the map some personality better than most other locations, but its vast and empty views in the surrounding area make it really tough to enter or exit. You'll find you quickly become a sitting duck for folks who may already be there, or who may stick around when you leave.

There's nothing worse than being shot at with no cover to hide behind, and Stadium offers a bit too much of that.

Storage Town

Lastly, Storage Town. This was my very first drop, and I haven't been back since. Though it's fair to say it's loaded with loot, its grid-like layout makes it almost like a nerve-racking hedge maze made of metal shipping containers.

The rows and columns are neatly organized, but there are just so many opportunities for other teams to camp a corner and wait for you to come down the wrong passageway. It's hectic and fun, but not as a go-to landing spot if you want to survive.

How to Fix Call of Duty Error Code 263234 Fri, 13 Mar 2020 15:31:44 -0400 Ty Arthur

Getting error code 263234 when trying to connect to an online match in either Modern Warfare or the free Warzone Battle Royale spin off? It's a frequent problem for console players looking to jump into plunder, domination, or even a standard deathmatch. The annoying 263234 bug also tends to appear in conjunction with Call Of Duty error code 262146, which indicates a similar connectivity issue.

While forums are filled with questions about these codes, there's been no direct answer from Activision's support on how to resolve the issue (and it's been around a while), so you'll have to get a bit creative and try out a few troubleshooting steps.

How to Fix Call Of Duty Error 263234

Getting Error Code 263234 in CoD Warzone indicates connectivity issues.

Both error code 263234 and error code 262146 indicate a problem somewhere between your device and the Call Of Duty servers. There are several different potential culprits along the path from your console to those servers, so let's get started.

Log Out and Log Back In

The first (and easiest) potential fix is to just log out of your Xbox One or PS4 profile, then immediately log back in to the same profile. In many cases, this simple action will flush out the problem and get you connected in a very short period of time.

Power Cycle Console

When logging out fails and you still get booted from a Call Of Duty match with an error code, the next step is to perform a full console restart.

You can't simply turn the console off and then back on again, as most players have their Xbox One or PS4 set to go into standby or sleep mode, rather than fully turning off.

For the Xbox One, tap the middle X guide button on the controller (don't hold it down), then scroll over to System. From there, go down and select Turn Off Console.

For the PS4, hold down the middle Playstation button until the side menu pops up. Scroll down to Power and select the Turn Off PS4 option (not the Enter Rest Mode entry at the top).

From there, turn your console back on and try to enter a match again. If that doesn't work, its time to move onto the next step between your console and the servers.

Power Cycle Network Equipment

You may be hitting a snag with either your router (whether you are connected via wireless or with an Ethernet cable) or the modem that connects your devices to the wider internet.

To check this step, power cycle both your modem and then your router by fully unplugging them, waiting 15 seconds, and then plugging them back in.

Restart your console again and give another online Modern Warfare or Warzone match a shot to see if the problem is resolved. 

Return to Factory Settings

If all of that fails, there is a final, more drastic solution that has worked for some players. To fully clear out any potential logjams between you and the server, you're going to return your console entirely back to factory settings. Yes, that means losing any data saved directly to the Xbox One or PS4 hard drive.

After this process, you will need to reinstall all your games, although it's unlikely you will lose any save files or screenshots, as most of that gets automatically backed up to the cloud.

For Xbox One, tap the middle X guide button, and navigate through System > Settings > System > Console Info. From there, select Reset Console and then Reset And Remove Everything.

For PS4, tap the middle Playstation button to return to the home screen and then scroll over to Settings. From there, navigate to Initialization > Restore Default Settings and follow the prompts to complete the reset.

Blizzard Agent Went to Sleep: What Does it Mean? Fri, 13 Mar 2020 14:18:45 -0400 Ty Arthur

The Blizzard Agent Went to Sleep error message has once again reared its ugly head. This time, it's keeping players from dropping into Call of Duty Warzone. If you were hoping for a relaxing weekend battle royale action, you might be in for a bit of disappointment. 

The error message has been a consistent issue with most major releases soon after launch, from World Of Warcraft to Overwatch. Of course, it's struck again just as Call Of Duty: Warzone players are settling in for some massive multiplayer matches.

There are two possible causes for the issue. Here's what you need to know.

Blizzard Agent Went to Sleep Error Message

In the vast majority of cases, this error message is misleading. Actually, it means the Blizzard servers are down.

It doesn't have anything to do with the local agent on your computer, and it can't be "woken up" by changing any settings or uninstalling and reinstalling.

That happens to be the case with Call Of Duty: Warzone right now, as the servers crashed immediately following a recent maintenance period. Here's the official comment from Blizzard's tech support team:

How to Fix Blizzard Agent Went to Sleep

In most cases, there's nothing to be done because the problem is on Blizzard's side of things and has nothing to do with your PC setup.

If a site like DownDetector isn't showing that the Blizzard servers are down, however, then the problem is likely caused by your antivirus or firewall not playing nice with the service.

There are two potential fixes here, and the first is to simply create an exception in your firewall if one doesn't already exist. There are different methods for accomplishing this task depending on your specific firewall, but here's what to do if you are using the standard Windows options:

  • Type "Firewall" in the search box and select "Firewall & Network Protection"
  • Click the "Allow an App Through the Firewall" link
  • Make sure the checkbox next to Call Of Duty is checked and click "OK"

If Warzone is already able to communicate through your firewall, the issue may instead be caused by a setting in your antivirus tool. This seems to be a recurring problem with the full (paid) version of AVG. If you have anything other than the basic free AVG protection, give this troubleshooting procedure a shot:

  • Close entirely (not just minimized to the system tray)
  • In AVG, navigate to Settings -> Full Protection ->Enhanced Firewall -> Packet Rules
  • Look for the Agent open port usually found at the file location C:/ProgramData/
  • Check to see the number at the Agent Started On Port # section
  • Type that port number into Local Port
  • Find the number after the colon in the line Checking Network Connection Status
  • Type that number into the Remote Port
  • Change the Agent setting to Allow
  • Add to the TCP/UDP Protocol In/Out Direction
  • Move the new exception up to the top of the list and click OK
  • Close the AVG window and re-open the launcher

How to Survive in Call of Duty: Warzone — Tips and Strategies Fri, 13 Mar 2020 13:42:58 -0400 Sergey_3847

Call of Duty: Warzone is not your typical battle royale. Of course, the main objective is to kill all enemies, but staying alive is just as important, especially if you're playing Plunder. This guide will provide you with tips and strategies on how to survive in the warzone of Verdansk.

Below, we'll go over jump strats, why armor matters, why dying is different than other battle royales, the role of buy stations, and other general survival tips. 

Jump as Soon as Possible

Drop in to Verdansk quickly to maximize loot pick ups.

Warzone gives you complete control over your landing spot, so opt to jump off the plane as soon as you can. Considering where other players are jumping, this strat gives you an advantage over other players to find better loot in a zone before anyone else.

To jump below the plane, move straight down while falling and delay your parachute for as long as possible. But don't forget to open it up before hitting the ground.

If you're specifically looking to land at a certain location, then you can artificially prolong your falling, which becomes almost horizontal, by repeatedly opening and closing your parachute. 

Use Armor Plates

Although the HP system in Warzone is flexible and allows players to heal without the use of health kits, using armor is essential. 

Each extra armor piece adds +50 health to your overall health pool, and you can use up to three plates simultaneously. These are indicated by the blue gauges on your health bar.

You can pick up armor plates from loot crates or dead players. You can also replenish your armor by pressing "4" on PC, "Y" on Xbox One, and "Triangle" on PS4. You can do this continuously. 

Get a Second Chance in the Gulag

It's not that easy to die in Warzone. Well, at least not as easy as in other battle royale games.

Here you don't die when your health bar is depleted. Instead, you get downed, giving one of your teammates the chance to revive you. You will need to be shot a second time to actually die. 

However, even if you die, you get a second chance in the Gulag, which is a separate arena where you meet other "dead" players. You fight one-on-one, and if you survive, you return to Verdansk to continue the game. 

The Gulag is a circular room with walls, so it's a matter of seconds before you kill or get killed. Here are a few tips on how to survive the Gulag:

  • Be patient and never rush into a fight. Wait for your opponent to attack first.
  • The Gulag gives you either a pistol or a shotgun, so master these weapons with the help of bots.
  • Chase down your opponent and try to attack your enemy from behind. If they can't spot you, then you win every time.

Don't Neglect Buy Stations

Buy station redeployment ribbon.

Besides loot crates and dropped loot from the dead players, you will encounter buy stations. These stations not only allow you to purchase items, but they also pay for your teammate's redeployment, among many other things. 

This means that your friends can revive you with money, even if you died in the Gulag.

Buy Stations can also provide you with loadout drops. These are essential for surviving in Warzone and ultimately winning the game. Here's everything to know about buy stations

Before buying a loadout, it is recommended you create some custom loadouts prior to the match. You can check some of the best loadouts right here. If you don't have any custom loadouts, then the game will offer the default ones, which aren't too bad.

Tips for Combat Survival

Here are a few tips on how to survive during the actual combat:

  • The best way to quickly dodge any attack is to slide sideways.
  • Always crouch when you move inside buildings, otherwise, enemies will hear you coming.
  • Use map markers (ping) to let your teammates know where you are. This may save your life.
  • Use killstreaks and perks that compliment each other for maximum efficiency. 
  • Lastly, find a good spot inside or on top of a building and camp out. There is no shame in it. Though be ready to move if enemies find you out.
