FaZe star Kris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson tested out Warzone’s brand-new Welgun SMG, calling it “top-tier” and building an “overpowered” loadout for it.

Warzone Pacific’s mid-Season 1 update brought a ton of buffs and nerfs to fan-favorite weapons, but it also brought the new Welgun SMG.

The Gunsmith system allows the Welgun to be built for a number of different playstyles, and top streamer FaZe Swagg has revealed how to make it “overpowered” with the right loadout attachments.

Warzone’s meta received a significant shake-up with Warzone Season 1’s midseason update, with the popular STG44 getting a healthy buff and the Bren getting taken down a peg.

But the one weapon standing out is the brand-new Welgun. In a YouTube video titled “The new Welgun SMG is overpowered in Warzone,” FaZe Swagg explains why.

Using the Welgun along with the STG, Swagg dropped 30 kills, helping his squad rack up over a hundred kills in Caldera. “This gun is top-tier, no question,” explained Swagg. “And overall, 100% you should unlock it.”

Swagg said the Welgun “melts with the right build,” so we’ve got his full class set up below.

Swagg’s YouTube video doesn’t reveal his full Welgun loadout, so here are the attachments he was running during his January 13 stream.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: 120mm Gawain Short
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 48 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Unmarked
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

Swagg boosted the Welgun’s fire rate by combining the Recoil Booster and 120mm Gawain Short barrel, allowing it to kill enemies much faster. And he discovered that running iron sights gives you a reflex, so he opted for the Slate Reflector instead.

For magazine and ammo, Swagg ran the 7.62 Gorenko 48 Round Mags to hold extra bullets and the Hollow Point ammunition which increases the damage dealt to limbs, making it much more forgiving.

The rest of the attachments are to improve the Welgun’s mobility and accuracy, with the Unmarked Perk which helps to conceal your position on the mini map.

Pay-to-lose Warzone skin makes it impossible to aim

It appears a pay-to-lose Warzone skin is completely ruining players’ optics, making the crosshair so misaligned you can’t aim.

Shigenori Operator in Warzone

Warzone players are at wits’ end with invisible skins ruining the game, but another glitch has popped up where wearing a ‘pay-to-lose’ skin completely misaligns your crosshair, making it impossible to aim.

Warzone has been plagued by a series of bugs and glitches causing players to be invisible, everything in front of them to disappear, and dying even though they’ve won their Gulag.

Raven Software are working hard to get back on track, but there appears to be an issue with a Store Bundle that’s causing the skin to completely misalign players’ optics.

Warzone Shadow Outcast skin ruins players’ aim

Warzone curse of the ancients bundle

Reddit user Arbeast21 showed off the glitch, demonstrating that their crosshair was off center and the shots were going in a completely different direction to where the crosshair was placed.

This would make it virtually impossible to win a firefight at long range, as you’d need to aim in a completely different place to where your shots are actually going.

When asked if it was due to the weapon or optic, they explained that it happened no matter what they were using.

However, a couple of other users pointed out that the skin they were wearing caused the issue, with one player explaining, “Change your operator skin. Mine was doing the same and that’s how I fixed it.”

Arbeast21 confirmed it occurred after they equipped the Shadow Outcast Shigenori skin from the Curse of the Ancients bundle, but hasn’t reported if this fixed the issue at the time of writing.

It appears that this glitch has been silently causing issues for some time, with a player showing off the Shadow Outcast skin ruining their aim on December 23. The optic looks the exact way it does for Arbeast21, so it’s highly likely that this is the same issue.

The Curse of the Ancients bundle costs 2400 CoD points, so players who have bought it will be desperate for it to be fixed.

Call of Duty’s developers recently confirmed they’re looking at the major issues affecting Warzone, Vanguard, and Modern Warfare, so hopefully, this pay-to-lose Shigenori Outcast skin will be fixed alongside the invisible skins plaguing the game.

Best Sten loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 1

Here are all of the attachments and Perks you need to build the best Sten loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Published

on

best Sten Warzone loadout

The race to find the new best SMG in Warzone is finally underway. The Sten hasn’t been the most popular pick but it definitely deserves consideration when equipped with the correct attachments that produce the best Sten loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Warzone Pacific Season 1’s mid-season update went live on January 13, bringing several weapon balancing changes, as well as the brand new Welgun SMG.

Excellent short-range options for Warzone Pacific are few and far between which makes the search for the MP-40’s successor quite challenging. The Sten is starting to gain some traction as an underrated pick due to its excellent fire rate. You’ll need the best Sten loadout to get the most out of the weapon and we’ve got you covered.

Best Warzone Sten loadout attachments

Sten loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: SA 65mm Rapid
  • Optic: SA 32S
  • Stock: Hockenson S33S Padded
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 9mm 50 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Incendiary
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Quick

Upon first use, the Sten may seem difficult to control but once you get the hang of its recoil pattern, you’ll enjoy the benefits of its excellent fire rate. For starters, we’ll max out the fire rate by adding the SA 65mm Rapid barrel.

This weapon is definitely going to need some attachments that contribute to recoil control and accuracy. The Carver Foregrip, Polymer Grip, and Hockenson S33S Padded stock will make this weapon much easier to control.

Incendiary ammo and the Recoil Booster muzzle will make this a deadly weapon in close quarters as it’ll shred through enemies. We can’t forget about ADS speed when it comes to SMGs and the SA 32S optic offers a nice boost in that regard.

The 9mm 50 Round Drums may seem excessive but they’re highly useful in Warzone when aiming to take down multiple enemies. The Sleight of Hand proficiency will make reloading the large magazine faster while Quick will improve your sprint speed.

Best Warzone Sten Perks & Equipment

Warzone perks
  • Perk 1: Cold Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill (Ghost second loadout)
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stim

With Combat Scout running rampant across Caldera’s thick foliage, Cold Blooded will prevent enemies from using the third perk to track your movement. Of course, you’ll want to equip Combat Scout yourself and hope your enemies don’t use the same Cold Blooded strategy.

Before you switch to Ghost you’ll want to run Overkill as the Sten needs to be paired with a long-range weapon. Despite receiving a nerf, the Bren remains the top long-range option.

A Throwing Knife will help you quickly confirm kills on downed enemies that you’ve rushed with your Sten. Due to the Stim’s new “Super Slide” mechanic, it has become the top choice in terms of Tactical equipment.

How to unlock the Sten in Warzone Pacific

How to unlock Sten

Luckily unlocking the Sten in Warzone and Vanguard is a supremely easy task that doesn’t require a significant amount of time. Players will need to hit Level 10 to unlock the Sten SMG.

If you’ve played any form of Vanguard or Warzone Pacific in the past few weeks, chances are the Sten is already accessible. Leveling up the weapon is a different story and may take some time. Luckily, players can take advantage of the upcoming Double XP event.

Best alternatives to Warzone Sten

The PPSH has been rising up the SMG ranks as of late due to a groundbreaking hip fire class that absolutely destroys close-range enemies in Caldera and Rebirth Island. The PPSH is the frontrunner to take over the new SMG meta in Warzone.

Alternatively, the Cooper Carbine remains one of the most versatile weapons in the game for those who are looking for a do-it-all weapon.

Bizarre Warzone glitch is killing players who win their Gulag

A strange bug in Warzone Season 1 is actually punishing players for winning their Gulags, kicking them out of matches.

Warzone players fighting in Gulag

The Gulag gives Warzone players a last chance to get back into the action after death, but a strange glitch is apparently punishing those who win their deathmatch.

Warzone’s mid-season update is here, with the headline addition coming in the form of the Welgun SMG, and some major weapon balancing changes.

While Raven did include some bug fixes to improve quality of life, some glitches are still causing havoc.

One of the biggest and most frustrating is happening in The Gulag, causing players who win their 1v1 to end up back in the pre-game lobby.

Warzone Pacific Gulag

In Warzone, The Gulag offers players a second chance at victory. Once you die, you get plopped into a 1v1 deathmatch, where the last man standing gets redeployed back into Pacific Caldera.

Unfortunately, this system isn’t quite working, as players are now reporting that they’re being kicked out of matches, even though they killed their opponent.

In a video uploaded to Reddit, user ‘PinkLyfe69’ showed a video of this glitch in action, sliding around a corner, taking down a motionless enemy, only to see the end-game lobby with their final placement.

According to the comments, this was an issue that had affected the game in Late 2021 but had disappeared. What causes it is unknown, but players will definitely want it to be fixed.

At this time, Raven Software haven’t responded to this issue, but we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for a possible fix. In the meantime, make sure you’re using the right guns in Caldera with our best Warzone weapons guide.
