Call of Duty: Vanguard is set to release in 2021 as Gamescom recently announced that Activision will be taking part in this year’s event.

Last year the world got to see the Call of Duty: Cold War reveal trailer the day before Gamescom started and then got a world premiere new look at the game during the event.

Gamescom 2021 is scheduled to begin August 25, and with Activision confirmed to be there the stars are aligning for a Vanguard reveal.

Earlier this year it was reported by popular leaker Tom Henderson that Call of Duty will be revealing the next installment of the franchise through another Warzone event.

Call of Duty 2021 will be revealed "mid year" and is also going to be revealed via Warzone.

We're a while away from a reveal yet, best guess is probably August to coincide with the Black Ops Cold War reveal.

Although nothing has been confirmed by Activision, data miners have been digging through the files to find as much information as possible.

ZestyCODLeaks reported in April that a “Major Event” is coming to Warzone and that there will be a cutscene following the event.

I've actually known about this for a while now, but I felt like I didn't have enough for a post.

There is a NEW major event coming called 'X2' that will feature the 'Armoured Train' and 'Ambushes'.

The leak also says that the Cold War reveal was listed as “x1_fin” in the files and this new event is listed as “x2” which fans are hopeful that it means there will be a reveal.

Vanguard is also reportedly set to bring a new World War II-themed Warzone map to the community. This is rumored to include planes, tanks, and boats.

A new controller setting was added to the game at the start of Season 4 and screenshots show players can now select “Airplanes Only” for invert vertical look.

Activision request shuts down powerful Auto-Aim tool User Vision

Destructoid 16 July, 2021 - 11:00pm

The developers behind powerful “auto-aim” mod User Vision have announced that they have ceased development on the software, following what was probably a sternly worded request from Call of Duty publisher Activision. The User Vision project has seemingly now been halted with no plans by the developer to continue plans to develop or release the tool.

User Vision first attracted eyes last week, when the powerful auto-aim software — which used learning software to continuously recalibrate its aim — was showcased in a video featuring the world’s most profitable shooter franchise, Call of Duty. Following a copyright claim from Activision, the video status change to unlisted, but it seems the publisher was not done with its cease & desist energy, and now the User Vision project is no more.

“My intent was never to do anything illegal,” read a statement from developer “USER101”. “At the end of the video that brought so much attention to this project, it stated ‘coming soon’. The software was never published […] This type of technology has other actual assistive benefits, for example, by pointing a webcam at yourself you could control movement without the use of limbs. Unfortunately, because of its potential negative impact I will not be developing it further.”

The removed video touted User Vision as “undetectable and unstoppable”, a notion that casts serious shade on any earnest declaration of noble usage. Even offering the developer the benefit of the doubt, creating an algorithm-learning aimbot — and then showcasing its capabilities on the biggest shooter on the planet — was never going to attract cheerful mail from said shooter’s publisher, especially while it is currently engaged in a hopeless ongoing battle to eradicate cheaters from its servers.

Warzone loadouts get very helpful change in Season 4 Reloaded update

CharlieINTEL.com 16 July, 2021 - 11:00pm

The Season 4 Reloaded update for Call of Duty: Warzone brought some positive changes to loadouts in the Call of Duty battle royale.

The highly anticipated Season 4 Reloaded update arrived in the world of Warzone on July 14/15, and it has brought plenty of changes to shake things up in the Call of Duty battle royale including a wide range of weapon buffs and nerfs and the addition of the new OTs 9 SMG.

There were also some smaller changes made in the Season 4 Reloaded update that players may not have noticed at first such as a change to how many players can use ziplines and the way loadouts work in Warzone.

The changes that affected Warzone loadouts in the Season 4 Reloaded update were major quality of life altertaions that will no doubt make choosing and using loadouts much easier and smoother.

One of the changes is that players can now use their custom loadouts in the pre-game lobby when they are playing the regular battle royale game modes in the same way you could in Plunder.

The loadout you pick in the pre-game lobby will then be the loadout that is automatically selected when you open a loadout drop.

Some other quality of life updates in Warzone update were multiple players can use a zip lines at the same time and players can edit their loadouts during their pre-game lobby in BR.

This will stop players from having to scroll through their list of Warzone loadouts and potentially making themselves sitting ducks.

Another major change is that players can now edit their loadouts in the pre-game lobby, such as you can in the Multiplayer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which means that you can make changes right before the match without having to back out of the match and do it in the lobby.

Unfortunately, this new feature opened the door for some bugs to appear which allowed players to spawn in with their loadouts at the beginning of matches and also allowed them to have unlimited Dead Silence. Raven Software has since disabled the pre-lobby loadout selection feature for the time being to fix these issues and will add it back in at a later time.

While these are not the craziest changes to Warzone loadouts, they are definitely ones that have received a great deal of positive feedback from the Call of Duty community so far and will no doubt help make things go smoother for players in their future matches.

For more Call of Duty: Warzone, check out which unreleased Modern Warfare weapon was possibly teased to be coming to Warzone in the future, and stay tuned for future news and guides.

Here are the attachments and perks you should use to make the best Warzone Grau loadout in Season 4 of the Call of Duty battle royale.

Season 4 of Call of Duty: Warzone is well underway, and there are a plethora of changes to explore, including new weapons like the MG 82 LMG and C58 Assault Rifle. Some existing weapons are also in the spotlight.

The Grau Assault Rifle is still a high-performing pick for players and is on our list of the top 10 most popular Warzone weapons. The Season 4 Reloaded update brought a small buff to its maximum damage.

Here are the right attachments and perks for the best Warzone Grau loadout.

The Grau 5.56’s main strengths are its damage, accuracy, and range. This Warzone loadout will prioritize improving the firepower and minimizing the recoil of the weapon.

First, we’ll equip the Monolithic Suppressor as it will make it difficult for your enemies to locate you on the map due to the sound suppression. It will enable you to get past your foes and to get a jump on them.

This will come at the cost of decreased damage range, so we’ll correct that with the Tempus 26.4″ Archangel barrel. This also has the added benefit of improving the weapon’s already impressive firepower.

The Tac Laser will provide improved ADS speed, as victory often belongs to the player who is able to look down at his aim quicker. We’ll fix the weapon’s recoil with the Commando Foregrip so that your accuracy isn’t negatively affected.

Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the 60 Round Mags provide a nice buffer if you get into a heated confrontation with multiples hostiles.

Cold-Blooded is the first perk that we recommend equipping, as it will help you stay hidden from enemies. The popular Ghost perk is another great pick for stealthy tactics where you don’t your foes to see you coming.

Whereas Perk 3 bottles down to whether or not you’re playing with buddies. Tune Up is the only one you’ll really need, and it will get you revived a bit quicker. In contrast, Tracker is more of a solo project that will let you find enemies faster.

Unlocking the Grau 5.56 is easy enough, as, in Modern Warfare or Warzone, you just need to “Get 5 kills in a minute when using an Assault Rifle 25 times.”

Doing this on Modern Warfare is the recommended option. If not, land into a populated area in Warzone and get your best killing shoes on!

For similar weapons to the best Warzone Grau loadout, it’s also worth trying out the Fara 83 or Krig 6 Assault Rifles, as they also provide laser-like shooting with almost no recoil like the Grau.

The Season 4 Reloaded brought plenty of things to Call of Duty: Warzone including a major change to how ziplines work in the battle royale.

Updates always bring a sense of excitement to the world of Warzone, and Season 4 Reloaded is no different, thanks to a plethora of weapon buffs and nerfs, a new Sentry Gun killstreak, and the new OTs 9 SMG.

While the above changes stole the spotlight, one major change that arrived in the Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update that did not get a great deal of attention at first focused on how ziplines work in the Call of Duty battle royale.

Ziplines are one of the most important features in Warzone, as it allows players to quickly make their way up tall buildings instead of having to walk up flights of stairs.

However, only one player could use these Warzone ziplines at a time, with other players having to wait until the player before them got off of the zipline.

This limitation meant that teams trying to rush an enemy team at the top of a building would have to take much longer than they would like to get everyone in a position to attack.

Fortunately, the Season 4 Reloaded update made a significant change to how many players can use the Warzone ziplines at one time. Now, multiple players can use the ziplines at the same time. You can check this change out in action in the video below:

There is no doubt that this change has been well received by the Warzone community and is one of the bright spots of the Season 4 Reloaded update for the Call of Duty battle royale.

It will definitely make it easier for teams to assault teams camping on top of tall buildings which could be very frustrating before this change.

The Warzone Season 4 Reloaded patch notes contained a tease from the developers that may be hinting at the upcoming debut of the CX-9 SMG.

The RAAL LMG and CX-9 SMG were two Modern Warfare weapons that were secretly added to Warzone in the past before being removed and never heard from again in the battle royale or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

These weapons have been spotted in Modern Warfare recently, and their blueprints were recently found in the game’s files, so there is no doubt that they are ready to be added to the games. The only question is if they ever will be added.

However, a recent tease from Raven Software in the Season 4 Reloaded update patch notes looks to have to inject a great deal of hope for players when it comes to the CX-9 SMG making its long-awaited debut sometime in the future.

The tease that was included in the update’s patch notes from Raven Software consisted of the following statement:

“We may see a Weapon make its long-awaited debut in Verdansk. 😉”

Now, this statement in itself does not specifically point towards the Modern Warfare CX-9 SMG, but a gameplay video for the new Payload game mode coming in Season 4 Reloaded that was released by Treyarch earlier in the day on July 14 is what makes this statement seem to be talking about the CX-9.

The gameplay video in question showed off gameplay of the new Payload game mode where a character was seen using the unreleased CX-9 SMG fighting enemies. There was no official mention of the character using this unreleased weapon.

With this footage and the tease in the patch notes, it seems Raven Software and Treyarch Studios planned to make a sneaky tease of the weapon’s upcoming arrival.

There is no doubt that there will be plenty of excitement in the community if the Modern Warfare CX-9 is indeed added to Warzone, as players have been waiting a long time to see it finally make its debut.

For more Warzone, check out the best loadout for the new OTs 9 SMG, and stay tuned for future news and guides.

Warzone Swiss K31 New Reticle Glitch in Season 4 Reloaded Update

Gaming INTEL 16 July, 2021 - 10:26am

Sniping in any game is very difficult. Even if Warzone is quite forgiving with aim assist and bullet drop, it still takes a lot of skill to regularly get headshots.

However, you also need a scope with a fully aligned reticle to be accurate at long ranges. Unfortunately, Warzone players have found out that the brand-new reticle for the Swiss K31, introduced in the Warzone Season 4 Reloaded patch notes, isn’t aligned properly.

Check out how bad this problem is below!

The Swiss K31 is one of the top sniper rifles to use in Warzone right now, but recently it had its reticle changed from a chevron to a more traditional crosshair. However, this has caused some huge accuracy problems.

Warzone YouTuber and streamer Stodeh found out soon after the update that a glitch stops the new Swiss K31 reticle from shooting in the correct place in Warzone. Instead of the sniper firing in the center of the crosshair, it seems to fire slightly below.

Since then, many other players have complained about the problem too. Unfortunately, the only way to fix it is by using a different scope on the Swiss, which is a waste of an attachment.

Until Raven fixes this reticle glitch, we recommend using the Kar98k instead of the Swiss K31 in Warzone. Check out the most accurate Kar98k loadout in Warzone – you might even prefer it to the Swiss!

Hey @RavenSoftware new scope on Swiss is great, but is it zeroed/aligned correctly? pic.twitter.com/S3gV98GGug

Finally, a new event has come to Warzone and it’s giving players free Blueprints. Find out everything you need to know about Blueprint Blitz in Warzone. Let’s just hope you don’t get one Swiss K31 until the reticle is fixed!

Meanwhile, Season 4 Reloaded has introduced an overpowered new killstreak to Warzone. You’ll want to find out how to get a Sentry Gun in Warzone, before it gets nerfed.
