Best Warzone Rebirth Island landing spots

Warzone’s Rebirth Island offers a totally different experience, so here are the best landing spots available.

Rebirth Island is the second, smaller Warzone map. It offers a totally different experience to Verdansk, so here are the best landing spots to secure a win on Rebirth Island.

Rebirth Island is considerably smaller than Verdansk and currently only holds around 40 players. It’s a remodel of Black Ops 4: Blackout’s Alcatraz Island, with some familiar locations and some brand new assets.

The best landing spots in Rebirth Island are located in the highest areas at the center of the map. Elevation plays a key role here, as it’s easy to get stuck in an uphill battle.

Here are our favorite landing spots in Warzone Season 1’s Rebirth Island.

Prison Block

The Prison Block is in the dead center of the Island and serves as its main attraction. There are several floors to explore and a roof with plenty of loot. You can also go down to the basement where there’s loot and an escape route out to the cliffs.

This area is often contested, but once you have cleared out the enemy teams that landed with you, you’ll be able to control the whole map. Snipers and long-range Assault Rifles will be key to keeping enemies at bay and stopping them from climbing the hill to push you.

Be mindful of players using the cliffside escape route against you, though.

Living Quarters

Rebirth Island’s Living Quarters is located to the south of the island above the Security Area. There are plenty of buildings to loot, which will gear your squad up for the fight ahead. There’s also a Buy Station in this area, allowing you to grab a loadout drop quickly.

The best aspect of Living Quarters is that it has excellent high ground over the Security Area. Plenty of players land there as it’s in a secluded area at the edge of the map. There’s also a helicopter spawn down there, which a lot of players contest.

Pick up one of the Pelingtons or Kar98ks from the ground, and you’ll be able to hold the players down there effectively. Just be careful of snipers at the Headquarters above you, but they are easy to avoid once you know they’re there.

Chemical Engineering Office

Loot is extremely valuable in winning Rebirth Island, and the Chemical Engineering Office is full of it. Located to the north-east of the map, this area has everything you need for your round of Resurgence or Mini-Royale.

It’s quite a complex area, but the high-tier loot is worth it. Many players use the elevated center of the map to snipe from, but there’s plenty of cover to allow you to loot. If you go up onto the roof, you’ll have a great view of the Docks and Bioweapons labs.

Be prepared to fight your way into the high ground at the center of the map, but if you successfully loot the Chemical Engineering Office, you’ll have everything you need.

These are our favorite landing spots on Rebirth Island, but you can check out our list of every location on the smaller Warzone Map.

JGOD reveals fastest “TTK” Welgun loadout that beats the MP40

JGOD has revealed his best class setup for the Warzone Welgun when it comes to TTK, claiming it even outperforms the MP40.

Published

Warzone Pacific has a lot of stellar options for close-quarters combat, however, JGOD claims this Welgun loadout is built for a fast TTK, edging it over the MP40 in the meta.

With the mid-season update for Warzone Pacific, players were gifted a brand new SMG, the Welgun. Since its introduction, the Welgun has been a great option for players looking to use a long-range SMG.

Having said that, there are many ways players can change the Welgun, and JGOD has revealed the loadout you’ll need to make the Welgun an even more efficient TTK SMG than the MP40.

According to JGOD’s latest video, the Welgun has the potential to beat the MP40 in terms of TTK with the correct attachments. This is pretty impressive, especially as the MP40 has been one of the best SMGs in the game for a while.

One thing that JGOD makes clear is that you will need to hit your chest, neck, and headshots in order to get the most out of the Welgun.

Here’s JGOD’s best TTK loadout for the Warzone Welgun.

JGOD’s Welgun loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1

JGOD Warzone Welgun loadout
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: 120mm Gawain Short
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Gawain Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 9mm 64 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Incendiary
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Perk 1: Frenzy
  • Perk 2: Quick

First off, JGOD has opted for the Recoil Booster to increase the weapons fire rate and overall TTK in close combat. Then we have the 120mm Gawain Short barrel which JGOD recommends highly for those who want to use the weapon in tight spaces.

The Slate Reflector, M1941 Hand Stop, and Taped Grip will all help the weapon’s recoil, allowing you to control the massive 9mm 64 Round Mags you will be unloading onto enemies, as well as balancing the negative initial firing recoil you’ll get with the Gawain Skeletal stock.

The Incendiary ammo type will keep enemies burning after you lose their sight, which is so useful in close combat situations, especially as the negative bullet velocity won’t do much to stop you in close quarters.

Lastly, we have Frenzy for the first Perk and Quick for the second. Frenzy will keep your health at the max while taking down enemies, which combines nicely with Quick which will allow you to move fast and keep the enemy second-guessing your location.


Well there you have it, that’s JGOD’s best Welgun loadout for a faster TTK than the MP40. If you’re looking for a long-range LMG, check out our best Type 11 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1.

How to fix Warzone crashing & freezing issues on Xbox

Warzone has suffered a number of issues since the Pacific update on Xbox, so here’s how to stop it from crashing and freezing.

Published

Xbox players have been suffering from game-breaking crashing and freezing errors since Warzone’s Pacific update, but one simple solution can fix many of the issues.


Warzone Pacific Season 1 brought many changes the community was looking for, adding a brand-new map, a working anti-cheat, and removing Stopping Power once and for all. However, it’s also brought some of the worst glitches Warzone has ever seen, particularly on Xbox.

Thanks to glitches, Xbox players must have a Gold Subscription to play, have lost their 120 FPS mode, and can’t even play the game because of constant crashing and freezing issues.

Luckily, there’s a simple solution that should lessen the amount of freezing and crashing issues you’re experiencing.

How to stop Warzone crashing & freezing on Xbox

To stop Warzone from crashing and freezing, don’t hit the Xbox home button while the Warzone application is open.

We recommend creating an Xbox Party before launching Warzone and then using Warzone’s Social tab to invite your friends to games.

This solution comes directly from Raven Software’s Trello board, where they acknowledged that “Players are reporting an issue where pressing the Xbox home button twice while in-game may cause instability.”

Raven said that the issue is caused by players hitting the Xbox home button twice, but many players have reported that issues crop up by pressing it once. So we recommend steering clear of the Xbox button and not pressing it at all.

Whether this will fix the issue where players can’t launch the game at all remains to be seen, but it should help out players who suffer from freezing and crashing while playing.

Raven Software has confirmed they’re investigating a number of Xbox Warzone glitches such as pressing the Xbox button, performance issues, and Xbox players’ Rebirth Island wins not tracking.

The next major Warzone update will be Season 2 in February, so hopefully, this update brings many much-needed fixes.

Warzone players beg Raven to add custom controller binding

Warzone players are calling on Raven Software to add options that allow them to fully customize their controller binds.

Warzone Pacific controller settings

Frustrated with having to use Warzone’s preset controller options, players are desperate for Raven Software to add custom controller binding options.

How players can customize their controller bindings varies from game to game, with games such as Fortnite giving players full control, while Warzone offers very little in terms of button layout.

With forced crossplay and repeated slide canceling ruining their controllers, Warzone console players are desperate for Raven Software to add custom controller binding options that allow them to configure their controls exactly how they’d like.

Players with unofficial controllers or the Xbox Elite controllers can fully customize every button. This lets them tailor their Warzone controls to their preference, but those who have first-party controllers are stuck with what Raven Software offers them.

Asking Raven Software, “where the hell is custom controller binding?” Reddit user TimewornTinman explained how they want to completely swap around their controls to keep their thumb on the right stick as much as possible. But, Warzone’s pre-set controls don’t allow them to get it exactly how they would like.

While many players suggested they purchase a third-party controller or buy a back button attachment, the issues would be fixed by giving players full access to their button layouts. One player called it a “basic feature” that’s been “ignored.”

PlayStation does give the option to change button binds through the Accessibility menus, allowing each button to be swapped for another. However, this applies the new binds across every aspect of your PlayStation experience, which can make it extremely difficult to navigate menus and switch to other games.

Console Warzone players have also been desperate for an FOV slider, which may arrive with the PS5 and Xbox Series update that’s confirmed to be in development. Perhaps Raven will give players more controller options when this update eventually arrives.
