What are Warzone Loadouts?

Warzone 2.0 loadouts refers to a set of customizations that a player can make that will impact their weaponry selection and perk package selection. These customizations will have a large impact on playstyle but also competitiveness as the game meta changes (“meta” refers to strategies used for competitive play that are most effective). Players often seekout (and share) loadouts to keep up with the latest meta.

In Warzone 2.0, a user can customize (follow links to detailed breakdowns of each):

  • Primary and secondary weapon selection
    • Weapon attachments (up to 5 at any time)
  • Tactical equipment
  • Lethal equipment
  • Perks packages

Considerations when choosing your loadout for Warzone 2.0

Many warzone veterans have commented that Warzone 2.0 players more like a traditional Battle Royale-style (methodical and often slow-paced) game than the original warzone, especially if you were a Resurgence regular. Currently, the only map available, Al Mazrah, is fairly large and will advantage certain playstyles (long range rifles and snipers). In addition to the larger map, players have remarked that TTK (time to kill) is short, which make features like low recoil and short ADS (aim down sites) critical to success in Warzone 2.0. It’s definitely worthwhile to get a few drops in to grab some first hand experience before trying to wrap your head around optimizing your loadouts.

As Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2 are still fairly new, it may take you a while to grind out all your attachments. This is a great opportunity to try out different playstyles and primary weapons to see what feels right for you.

Will players move to Apex Legends given the negative feedback Warzone 2 has received from community?

It’s no secret that many Warzone fans aren’t happy with how Warzone 2 was rolled out. This outcry from loyal players has prompted Activision to quickly follow-up with major changes in Season 2 of Warzone 2, with many seeing this as a reversal to Warzone 1 mechanics (in a good way).

However, will Warzone 1 players return in droves or has the damage already been done? One title that has been gaining in popularity while Activision figures out what they want Warzone 2 to become is Apex Legends. Taking a look at the data available through Steam, we see that while Warzone has been losing players, Apex Legends has been gaining:

  • Warzone 2 averaged 105K players in the last 30 days, a -41% drop
  • Apex Legends averaged 198K players in the last 30 days, a +16% gain

Couple this with popular streamers, like DrDisrespect claiming that Apex Legends is a better Battle Royale, players must be wondering what this means for the future of Warzone 2.

“There’s so many different elements in the game that require a sense of brains to make a decision and to execute the decision. That’s why I like Apex. You could feel intelligent design behind the game“, explains DrDisrespect in a recent YouTube video.
