Warzone Season 4 Reloaded’s best new feature removed after players get infinite Dead Silence

CharlieINTEL.com 17 July, 2021 - 06:01am

Raven Software were forced to remove one of Warzone Season 4’s best new features after players were receiving infinite Dead Silence.

Dead Silence has always been a controversial topic in Call of Duty: Warzone. It’s by far one of the most effective tools in the game, allowing you to sprint at full speed without making a sound. Players have called for it to be nerfed, but instead, Raven Software teased a Perk rebalance to counter it.

Now, however, a Warzone Season 4 Reloaded bug caused players to get infinite Dead Silence and queue into the match with their loadouts, and Raven Software were quick to act by removing one of the update’s best new features.

Although not included in the Season 4 Reloaded patch notes, players discovered that they could actually deploy into the pre-game lobby with their loadout and make changes ahead of the match. The excitement didn’t last, as Raven Software removed the feature because it was somehow granting players unlimited Dead Silence and allowed them to queue into the actual match with their loadouts.

Tweeting on July 15, the day of the Reloaded update, Raven Software announced that they “have pushed an update to remove the pre-match lobby Loadout selection.”

“Players will no longer begin a match with their Loadouts,” they explained. “This also resolves an issue with infinite Dead Silence in core BR modes.” However, they assured players that the feature will be re-enabled at a later date.

Customizing loadouts in the pre-game lobby wasn’t the only change to go under the radar – Raven has also allowed more players to use the zipline at once – making clearing out campers much easier. But the infinite Dead Silence wasn’t the only glitch either, as top Warzone YouTuber JGOD was killed by an invisible player on Rebirth Island.

Stay tuned to Charlie INTEL and our Twitter page, @charlieINTEL, as once Raven Software has re-enabled loadouts in the pre-game lobby, we’ll be the first to let you know.

The OTs 9 SMG is one of the new weapons in Warzone’s Season 4 Reloaded update, and NICKMERCS has revealed his loadout for the weapon.

Warzone’s Season 4 Reloaded update has brought a wide variety of new content to the game. This includes a ton of weapon balance changes and the ability to wheelie on Dirt Bikes. The new OTs 9 SMG is one of the more notable additions.

Despite its small magazine size, the weapon boasts an extremely competitive time to kill. Now, popular Twitch streamer and YouTuber NICKMERCS has unveiled his close-range loadout for this weapon in Season 4.

In his video, NICKMERCS went over the changes that have come to Warzone in the Season 4 Reloaded update, including various weapon buffs and nerfs. He then tested out the OTs 9’s close-range capabilities.

After equipping a few select attachments, the content creator jumped into battle with the SMG, and was able to rack up an impressive number of kills. The OTs 9 was able to decimate most enemies that were unfortunate enough to be in its path.

You can find the NICKMERCS OTs 9 loadout below:

Since this a brand-new weapon that has a ton of potential, there is no doubt that you will see plenty of players using the NICKMERCS OTs 9 loadout for the remainder of Warzone Season 4. This will be the case until some major balancing updates are applied to the gun.

It is the build that allows you to maximize the potential of this SMG in close quarters combat, as the content creator was able to use it to take down multiple foes in rapid succession.

The Twitch personality was able to show just how strong the loadout is by collecting 22 kills in a single game, due to the SMG’s great stopping power and phenomenal rate of fire.

You can use the OTs 9 to cause some serious mayhem with this loadout, so be sure to try it out for yourself the next time to hop into Verdansk.

For more Warzone, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL, and check out our guide on where to find all the Red Doors.

Warzone’s Red Door fast travel system has arrived, transporting players to rooms filled with powerful loot. Here’s every confirmed location.

The mysterious Red Doors debuted in Warzone Season 4, appearing around Verdansk ’84. Not only can you now get powerful Sentry Guns from these doors, but they’ve also only got more mysterious following the Reloaded update.

The Red Door fast-travel system was accidentally leaked at the beginning of Warzone Season 3, but now it’s arrived in Season 4, it’s not what players expected. Instead of the subway system where you knew exactly where you were going, the Red Doors transport players to a random location bursting with valuable loot.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Red Doors, including all confirmed locations.

The community has been scouring Verdansk for Red Door spawn locations, and 30 have been found so far. If more are discovered over the course of the season, we’ll update this article accordingly.

These doors appear to form in clusters around the map, with several Doors found at areas such as Summit, Salt Mine, and Stadium. They make a distinct sound to indicate that one is nearby, so make sure your Warzone audio settings are properly tuned.

While there are 30 possible locations, Red Doors aren’t guaranteed to spawn every round, so there’s an element of luck involved.

Here are all 30 Red Door locations found so far in CoD: Warzone Season 4.

After going through one of these Red Doors, you’ll emerge in a random area of Verdansk ’84. Usually, they’ll take you inside a locked room brimming with high tier loot, but following the Season 4 Reloaded update, you can be dropped from the sky in a random location.

This room will be locked until someone enters it through a Red Door. YouTuber Geeky Pastimes has discovered everywhere these mysterious Red Doors will take you.

You won’t be guaranteed a specific room, but the Red Doors will take you to one of these locations.

The Red Doors are a new fast-travel system in Warzone Season 4. Unlike modern-day Verdansk’s subway system, the Red Doors will take you to a seemingly random area of the map – either taking you to a room filled with high-tier loot or dropping you from the sky.

If you look through the Supply Boxes, you can also get your hands on the Sentry Gun Killstreak as well as the Specialist Bonus Token as part of Season 4 Reloaded.

30 Red Doors have been found so far, but they aren’t guaranteed to spawn every round.

When you find a Red Door, approach it and press your interact button to open it. Once it’s open, walkthrough, and you’ll find yourself at another location in Verdansk.

This system is still new, so there is still a lot to learn about how these Red Doors operate. Read on for what you can find on the other side of the Red Doors and all confirmed spawn locations.

Inside the room you’re teleported to, you’ll find Legendary Chests and other high-tier items. These are very similar to modern-day Verdansk’s bunkers, which you could open for valuable loot and cash.

Following the Season 4 Reloaded update, you can now find Sentry Guns, Specialist Bonuses, and mysterious Red Boxes covered in glowing numbers. Nobody knows what these boxes do yet, but they could be something to do with an upcoming Easter Egg.

Here’s everything you can get inside the Red Door loot room:

Be sure to stay tuned to Charlie INTEL; as we learn more about Warzone Season 4’s mysterious Red Doors and their locations, we’ll update this guide.

The Krig 6 can be a powerhouse in Warzone with the correct loadout, so we’ve put together the best perks and attachments to run with it.

Whilst the Krig 6 is considered to be the best gun in Black Ops Cold War, it hasn’t been seen that way for much of the Warzone integration. Since the Warzone Season 4 update, one of the attachments has been given quite a significant buff which has shot the Krig 6 up to the top of the meta.

We’ve put together the best attachments and perks to maximize this weapon’s potential in Warzone Season 4 with this best loadout for the Black Ops Cold War Assault Rifle.

Unfortunately, the Krig 6 has very low bullet velocity without attachments to improve it. So we’ve built this Krig 6 to maximize its bullet velocity and damage range, massively improving its slaying potential.

The Agency Suppressor vastly improves the Krig 6. Not only will you be hidden from the minimap when firing, but your rifle will have less recoil, faster bullet velocity, and more power over range.

To further increase the bullet velocity of the best Warzone Krig 6 loadout, you should add the 15″ CMV Mil-Spec, which received a huge buff in the Season 4 patch. This will not only give you a bullet velocity and damage range boost, but now this barrel gives the Krig almost no recoil, allowing you to stay on target and hit all your shots.

However, the June 30 update for the Call of Duty battle royale decreased the vertical and horizontal recoil control from 15% to 10% on the 15″ CMV Mil-Spec, so you may feel a tad more recoil than before. However, this attachment still gives you the best overall recoil control for this Assault Rifle.

Even with these attachments, the best Warzone Krig 6 loadout is best suited for medium-range combat. To perfectly complement this, you should add the 3x Axial Arms scope. This unobtrusive sight will give a perfect view of your enemies, making hitting their upper torso and head much easier.

To further improve your accuracy, the Field Agent Grip will improve your vertical and horizontal recoil control.

The Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag will make sure you have enough bullets to take down multiple enemies before having to reload. You’re going to need as much as you can get when facing enemy trios and quads on Verdansk in Season 4.

You’re going to need three solid perks for the best Warzone Krig 6 loadout class. The following perks will compliment the setup that we constructed above very well.

E.O.D will give you a ton of explosive resistance, allowing you to tank an onslaught of explosives coming your way and have a better chance of surviving a gunfight that begins with an onslaught of explosive damage from your enemies.

Depending on how you want to use your Krig 6, you’ll need to either carry a weapon for extreme long-range or something for up-close such as Nail Gun. Overkill will allow you to take two primary weapons.

You can get Ghost from your next loadout drop to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors. Having to switch weapons in gunfights can be a death sentence, but with Amped, you’ll change guns extremely fast, allowing you to continue fighting without delay.

Players will be happy to see that there is no unlock challenge they must complete to have this assault rifle in their inventory for the Call of Duty Battle Royale. Like most of the other Black Ops Cold War guns, this weapon became available for players to use immediately when the two games merged.

Try out the Krig 6 with these attachments and perks in Season 4, and you will be happy to see how well you perform when you are using the best Warzone Krig 6 loadout.
