The best Call of Duty: Warzone Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle loadout

The Call of Duty: Warzone life cycle is at its end, and with that comes one final weapon meta. That means the game’s best weapons likely won’t change much anymore, giving players a clearer sense of what they should spend time leveling. Arguably the best sniper in the game right now is the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle, a weapon with a fast rate of fire, along with the ability to secure a one-hit elimination (or down) to the head at any range.

But as always, Warzone features a slew of different attachment options, making it tough to decide which ones to use. Thankfully, there’s a clear winner in this case, and here, we’ll go through the best Gorenko loadout in Warzone.

Of course, let’s first take a look at why the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle is so excellent, with details on how to use it. First, it’s important to note that this weapon is best used at range, but you aren’t restricted to only firefights from hundreds of meters away. Since this weapon’s rate of fire is so fast, you can actually treat it more like an assault rifle, giving you plenty of room for error.

According to TrueGameData, the Gorenko’s fire rate is around 111 RPM, which is nearly triple all of the best lightweight snipers in the game, including the Swiss K31 and Kar98k. In addition, the Gorenko has a competitive bullet velocity of around 1101 when using our recommended build. For best results, we advise sticking to battles at around 50 meters and beyond, though you can get away with closer-range firefights if you prioritize fast aim down sights (ADS) speeds.

Recommended loadout:

Muzzle Mercury Silencer
Barrel 420mm Empress
Optic SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
Stock Reinforced Stock
Underbarrel Bipod
Magazine 13mm AM 10 Round Mags
Ammunition FMJ Rounds
Rear grip Stippled Grip
Perk Focus
Perk 2 On-Hand

With this build, start by equipping the Mercury Silencer Muzzle, keeping you suppressed while also giving you better horizontal recoil control and bullet velocity. Remember, the faster the bullet velocity, the less you have to lead your shots. Next, use the 420mm Empress Barrel, improving your accuracy, reducing scope sway and gun bob, and offering faster ADS speed.

After that, use the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x Optic, giving you two zoom options with an accuracy boost. This Optic is great for any map since you can adjust between 3x and 6x. To improve your ADS speed, go with the Reinforced Stock next. This also boosts your initial firing recoil control, recoil recovery, and aim walking movement speed, making it easier to follow up with additional shots while moving around quickly.

Unfortunately, none of the Underbarrels are great, but the Bipod is your best bet here since it boosts your recoil control when mounted, crouched, or prone. It does hurt your ADS speed, so you can simply opt to use nothing in this slot so you aren’t penalized. Next, go with the 13mm AM 10 Round Mags, giving you plenty of ammo to take down multiple foes. Then, equip the FMJ Rounds Ammunition type to improve your bullet penetration through walls and other surfaces.

After that, we recommend using Stippled Grip Rear Grip, which boosts your recoil recovery and initial firing recoil control. For Perk 1, we recommend Focus for better flinch resistance, allowing you to stay on target while getting shot. Finally, go with On-Hand Perk 2 for faster ADS speed.

Perk 1 Quick Fix
Perk 2 Tempered
Perk 3 Amped

When it comes to Perks, we highly suggest using Quick Fix for slot 1. This immediately triggers health regeneration after you secure an elimination or when you apply an armor plate. Next, use Tempered, which gives you max armor with only two plates instead of three. Since this is a sniper, we also advise going for Amped, giving you faster weapon swap speed. You never know when someone is going to surprise you, so being able to swap weapons faster will likely save your life.

Lethal Equipment Semtex
Tactical Equipment Stims

As for Equipment, it’s best to go with Semtex Grenades, allowing you to clear out a room or deal quick damage before rushing. We also like using Stims for Tactical Equipment, which immediately grants health regeneration, even inside the gas.

How to play as Nicki Minaj in Call of Duty
Nicki Minaj shooting an assault rifle in Call of Duty.

After Fortnite unleashed a flood of crossovers into the gaming world, there's almost nothing that's off the table anymore. Call of Duty getting a Nicki Minaj operator, for example, would likely never have happened 10 years ago, and yet here we are. The rapper/singer is often called the Queen of Rap, but she's expanded her talents to dolphin-diving and no-scoping noobs on the battlefield. If you want to strut your stuff as Minaj in your next match, complete with her own set of pink weapons and vehicle skin, there are a few bits of information you need to know before loading up your next game.
Can you play as Nicki Minaj in Call of Duty?
Nicki Minaj was introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone on August 24, 2023, as part of Season 5 alongside Snoop Dogg and 21 Savage. They were all purchasable in the in-game store for 2,400 CoD Points. Minaj's bundle was titled the Tracer Pack and included her skin, blueprints for her battle rifle and shotgun, a finishing move, vehicle skin, weapon charm, loading screen, emblem, and sticker.

Unfortunately, the Tracer Pack bundle was completely removed from the store as of around six months ago. There's no firm reason as to why her skin was removed or if the developers intend to bring her back. While it is possible her skin will be put back into the shop, it is too hard to say if or when that will ever happen due to the unclear nature of why it was removed in the first place.

Is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 cross-platform?
Soldiers battle in an abandoned airport.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the latest addition to the award-winning franchise that most of us have been playing for well over a decade. Beyond the enhanced graphics, refined mechanics, and new gameplay features, one of the biggest draws to the COD world has always been online multiplayer. Not only does multiplayer return for MW3, but there’s more to love about the competitive space than ever before. 

But not everyone owns the same version of Call of Duty. Some of us are playing on our next-gen consoles, while others are rocking gaming PCs. So what does this mean when it comes time to join others online? Does MW3 support cross-platform gameplay? The answer is a bit more complex, but here’s all the facts.

Gameplay from Call of Duty: Warzone mobile

Activision's popular battle royale game Call of Duty: Warzone is making the jump to mobile in March. Specifically, it launches for iOS and Android devices on March 21.

Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile is made in-house by several Activision teams, including Beenox, Digital Legends, Solid State Studios, and Shanghai Studios.

Payers can level up the same weapons, access content from the BlackCell Battle Pass and store, and gain XP on the same account across all three games. Warzone Mobile will also have full controller support, although it will have a virtual controller overlay that's highly customizable.
