Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 will finally fix its looting system

After a two-week delay, Activision will finally release Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 on February 15. Ahead of its release, Activision published a new blog post detailing what to expect from Season 2. Most notably, Season 2 will completely change how looting and inventory management works in Warzone 2.0, hopefully fixing one of the most heavily criticized things about the game.

Now, instead of the menu system featured since launch, Warzone 2.0 will work similarly to the first installment: loot will now drop to the ground in a pile. This willstreamline the looting process, allowing players to grab items much faster. In addition, Medium and Large Backpacks are being removed entirely, only allowing the use of Small Backpacks for the duration of the match. This will not only improve how players collect loot, but will also prevent players from hoarding Self-Revive Kits and other items.

The update will also improve the cash pool, with the minimum stacks increased to $800 for ground loot, while cash registers will have stacks of $500, at least. Thankfully, Season 2 will revert back to the 1v1 Gulag as well, which was yet another major point of criticism with Warzone 2.0.

Expect other new features including default 3-Plate Vests, the ability to move faster while applying armor plates, improved Buy Station spawns, and the reduction of Loadout Drop costs.

Most of the new features will mirror the mechanics of the original Warzone, which was in a decent spot at the end of its life cycle. Activision will reveal more about Season 2 in the coming weeks, with announcements about the overall theme, new weapons, and other additional features to come.

Call of Duty: Warzone is finally coming to mobile in March
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.

This is a separate game from Tencent's Call of Duty: Mobile, which is currently available on the App Store and Google Play Store. Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile is made in-house by several Activision teams, including Beenox, Digital Legends, Solid State Studios, and Shanghai Studios. Further signifying that connection is that Warzone Mobile has shared progression with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and the PC and console versions of Warzone. 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.

The best weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
A soldier standing in an armory.

To the layman, every gun in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 probably seems the same. They all shoot bullets, right? In reality, that couldn't be further from the truth. Even when you take player skill out of the equation, each gun has vastly different stats and applications that make some, even within their own category, just plain better choices for everyone. Each gun is broken down into various stats, including recoil, ADS speed, damage, and much more, which makes it hard to easily compare them. When you factor in just how many guns are available as you level up and keep unlocking more, the prospect of picking the best ones becomes overwhelming. If you're trying to build the ideal loadout to dominate the current meta, these are the best weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for each weapon type.

We will detail the top picks per each class, and then list the rest in terms of how they rank.
