FJX Imperium: best loadouts for Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2

The Intervention sniper has returned to Call of Duty in the form of the FJX Imperium. This new sniper is available in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2, as part of the Season 3 battle pass, offering a healthy dose of nostalgia and power. It works a lot like you remember from the original 2009 Modern Warfare 2, but does offer a lot more customization this time around. With that in mind, let’s dive into the best FJX Imperium loadouts across Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2.

Recommended loadout:

Barrel TAC-Command 19-inch
Laser VLK LZR 7mw
Stock FJX Kilo-TAC
Bolt FJX Blast
Ammunition .408 Explosive

During Season 3, Activision reintroduced one-shot snipers in Warzone 2.0, but you’ll need a bolt-action rifle to utilize this feature. Thankfully, the FJX falls into this category and we’ll go over the best one-shot loadout below.

Start with the TAC-Command 19-inch Barrel, which improves the weapon’s recoil control, aim down sights (ADS) speed, and bullet velocity. Then, we advise using the VLK LZR 7mw Laser for faster ADS speed, better aiming stability, and improved sprint-to-fire speed. After that, we recommend picking the FJX Kilo-TAC Stock for faster crouch movement speed, sprint speed, ADS times, and sprint-to-fire speed. To boost the rechambering speed, we also advise using the FJX Blast Bolt. Then, finish off the build with the .408 Explosive Ammunition to earn those one-shot downs to fully-plated enemies.

With this build, you’ll be able to quickly pull off shots and if you connect with the head, you’ll down the opponent in just one hit. Just keep in mind, you’ll need to lead your shots significantly since the .408 Explosive rounds penalize bullet velocity so much.

Recommended loadout:

Barrel TAC-Command 19-inch
Laser VLK LZR 7mw
Stock FJX LUX-7
Rear Grip Skull-40
Carry Handle Field-Wrapped Handle

When it comes to Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, the FJX deals enough damage by default, so you don’t need to add explosive rounds to secure one-hit eliminations. This build is similar to the Warzone 2.0 loadout, but with a few changes here and there.

Stick with the TAC-Command 19-inch Barrel for its boost to recoil control, ADS speed, and bullet velocity. Likewise, continue using the VLK LZR 7mw Laser to help with ADS speed, aiming stability, and sprint-to-fire speeds. After that, swap over to the FJX LUX-7 Stock for better aiming stability, aim walking speed, and sprint speed. Utilize the Skull-40 for faster sprint-to-fire speed and ADS times. Finally, equip the Field-Wrapped Handle Carry Handle, which improves your crouch movement speed and ADS speed.

This build is more so meant for aggressive playstyles and is suited to 6v6 maps. Though, it’s totally usable on the larger maps, too.

Modern Warfare 3 Zombies: Mercenary Convoy guide
Soldiers in a car driving and shooting zombies.

The old format of Zombies has been left behind in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in favor of a more open-world, objective-based take on the undead survival game type. This time, you will squad up and drop into a map with specific objectives you can choose to complete to earn tons of XP, while also pushing the narrative forward and unlocking new, more difficult tasks to take on. The early-tier missions are generally very simple, but in Act 1, you will be given the objective to find and destroy a Mercenary Convoy somewhere on the map. This sounds easy enough on paper until you realize you have no idea where this convey is or how to find it. Every run in Zombies risks losing all your hard-earned progress, so we'll lead you to the Mercenary Convoy to take it out before the zombies even know you were there.
How to find the Mercenary Convoy

Your first challenge will be to find this Mercenary Convoy. The problem here is twofold: first is that it isn't marked on your map in any way, and second is that, being a convoy, it is mobile. Once you land, you and your team should find the nearest vehicle and head toward the center of the map. Depending on how the threat levels are on your particular map, you are looking for roads and highways that are around the medium-threat level zone. You will have to patrol these roads until you come across the convoy, which only consists of three vehicles. Once you are in range, it does appear on your map to let you know you've found it.

Modern Warfare 3 Zombies: tips and tricks for MWZ

The mega-popular Zombies mode has never undergone as massive of a restructuring as it has for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. What was originally a round-based, co-op survival mode where you and a team of four gradually powered up, expanded the map, and maybe tried to complete a challenging Easter egg story has become something more of a mix of Zombies and the new DMZ mode from last year's entry.

While there will be plenty that is familiar to Zombies veterans, such as Perk-a-Colas and mystery boxes, you won't be able to rely on your old tactics anymore. Surviving the new Zombies mode is a completely new ballgame in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but these tips and tricks will help you and your squad survive threats both old and new.

Every year when the new Call of Duty title drops, the playing field is once again reset as everyone needs to start grinding back up the ranks. Fully embracing the RPG elements, Modern Warfare 3 once again allows you to earn XP as you play match after match to rank up your character, with each rank not only bringing you closer to hitting prestige but also unlocking new options for your chosen operator. Your player rank is unique from your weapon levels and can take a lot longer to grind if you don't know the most efficient methods. If you want to fast-track your career through the ranks, here are the fastest ways to earn XP in Modern Warfare 3.
How to earn XP fast in Modern Warfare 3
There's basically no way you can play Modern Warfare 3 without earning XP, but some modes and methods can earn you double (or more) what you could if you were just playing without a plan.
Play the objective

We all love playing team deathmatch or any other mode where all you need to worry about is being the one to shoot first. However, if you want to earn that sweet XP fast, you need to choose one of the objective modes like Domination, Hardpoint, Ground War, or even Kill Confirmed. Not only do you get XP for killing enemies, but the amount you get on top of that for playing the objective can make up the bulk of your XP gain. This is especially true if you're not at the top of your game and end up dying more than you kill since you have another method to contribute. Also, objective modes grant you an XP bonus just for finishing the match.
