Infinity Ward’s Battle Royale is hours of fun and offers a new way to play the popular Call of Duty franchise. Since the CDL is online for the remainder of the season, professional players have had their go at Warzone in multiple tournaments across all platforms, including the latest Boom TV Cash App “Code Green” Tournament. Whether one is playing or watching, here are a few Call of Duty: Warzone Tips and Tricks to help get started.
C6, Clayster and Teepee win Code Green
Congratulations to Ian “C6” Porter, James “Clayster” Eubanks and Tyler “TeePee” Polchow. These three players won the $50,000 Code Green Tournament with a whopping 298 eliminations, 19 more kills than second place. C6 finished with 109 eliminations, Clayster with 99 eliminations, and TeePee with 90 eliminations.
Preston “Priestahh” Greiner and Tyler “aBezy” Pharris of Atlanta Faze teamed up with Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson and dropped a 52 kill game to end up in fourth place. An even more impressive feat came from Arcitys’ teammate Seth “Scump” Abner, who recorded 118 eliminations for a third-place finish. He wiped out entire teams in one sweep and led 100 Thieves CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag and Fortnite streamer Dennis “Cloakzy” Lepore to multiple Victory Royales.
Here are some of the biggest takeaways from watching the pros play Warzone.
Call of Duty Warzone: Tips and Tricks
- Most casual players don’t have access to the Scuf or Battle Beaver controllers the pros use, and that is okay. Bumper Jumper Tactical or Tactical are great alternatives to be able to jump and prone while still having full control over aiming and shooting. Fix the sensitivity too. Lowering sensitivity improves aim but sacrifices mobility. Only adjust it if the current settings aren’t optimized.
Cut the Chute
- If an enemy was in a player’s line of sight mid drop, they would almost always cut the chute and use a gun to kill the enemy before popping the chute again and landing. Obviously, there should be enough room between the player and the ground before deciding because if the parachute isn’t popped in time after the kill, the player would end up in the Gulag. Play it smart, and if the kill can’t be secured, call the enemy out to teammates.
Check the Map Often
- The map is a player’s lifeline. The last thing a team needs to do is wander aimlessly around the map. Maybe that would work in the first few minutes of the game, but once the circle starts closing in, players should be on the move to avoid dying in the gas. Use the map before dropping to know where to land. The popular landing spots right now seem to be Downtown Tavorsk District, Verdansk International Airport, and Arklov Peak Military Base. These spots have a lot of buildings which make them high-risk areas. If a team can withstand the onslaught of players landing in these spots, they will be free to take the high-reward loot.
Purchase Loadout Drops
- A player should always have a loadout made specifically for Warzone. Use the Overkill perk to equip two primary weapons. It could be an AR/Sniper combo or an AR/SMG, whatever loadout works best for one’s play style. Don’t hoard cash either. Use the cash to purchase Armor, Killstreaks, Revive Kits, Loadout Drops, and Ammunition Boxes, to name a few. Prices vary from $1,500 to $6,000.
Utilize Vehicles and Share Resources
- The map is one of the largest Battle Royale maps on the market. If a player doesn’t have lightweight or dead silence and are far from the circle, it will be a hike to get across the map. Moving targets are harder to hit, so use the vehicles scattered across the map for an easy exit. They can also be used to knock an enemy when they hit head-on.
- Be a good teammate. Nobody likes a toxic player who hoards all the resources. Spread them out evenly among teammates or, at the very least, use the ping system to alert teammates of items, guns, or resources. And remember, an armor-less enemy runs the same as a multiplayer enemy.
Prepare for the Gulag
- Gulag is a second chance at life. Kill the enemy and return to the game. Familiarize the loadout at hand and know when to push and when not to push. Every player in the Gulag has the same loadout, so if it’s a shotgun, push forward quickly but remember that a shotgun may be waiting just around the corner. Don’t be afraid to use the equipment either as they can be a game-changer.
