The end of Verdansk: a Warzone META to go out with a bang

Verdansk, everyone’s favourite free to play battle royale, has been our home for almost two years now, and we’ve had an absolute blast! Our violent paradise has helped to carry us through some tough times (who can forget those long lockdown nights) and has given us countless iconic moments and memories. But all good things must come to an end – or at least evolve – and that’s why we’ll be saying goodbye to Verdansk on the 2nd of December. 

We’ll soon be dropping into Warzone Pacific Caldera – and we can’t wait. But with a couple of weeks left to have fun in Verdansk, we’ve put together a final META to use in the game so you can go out in true CoD style: all guns blazing!

It’s the final META

We’re going to jump straight to it, here is our list of the best loadout for each playstyle:

Time for the rose tinted glasses

So there’s our quick rundown of the loadouts you should be using to usher out the era of Verdansk,and give your KD a quick bump if you use them. But, we aren’t done there! With the new map just around the corner, there’s probably no better time to get a little sentimental and look back at some of the old METAs from the game cycle – there are too many to mention, so apologies if your favourites didn’t make the list! Grab your tissues, this one might get a little emotional…

AX-50/HDR with thermal scope

It feels like we last used the thermal scope a lifetime ago! A Warzone sniper’s dream used to be white-hot figures running around in the distance – or camping, bushes couldn’t save you back then. If you weren’t running cold-blooded back when this loadout was around then you were basically a walking bullseye!

The no-stock Grau

Here’s another classic from a while back. Removing stocks from weapons became one of the most popular gun modifications for some time; aim down sight speed went through the roof and recoil barely seemed to suffer. This tactic was never more popular than it was with the Grau – if you got this thing mounted then it was game, set and match for the enemy!

60 round Bruen

The game peaked when my squad discovered this loadout just before it went mainstream. With the right attachments and sights this thing was an absolute laser and you were a nightmare for any opponent, even if you were hundreds of metres away! 

Burst Aug

Bursts had historically been a terrible choice in the early Warzone seasons, however, all that changed when the Call of Duty Cold War Aug was released. It’s 3 round burst was so powerful that it could shred a target in one go if you landed a couple of rounds to the head – even if you didn’t manage that then a pinpoint second burst would finish the job. This weapon made sprints through open ground a suicide mission!


This one has been a staple of the game for some time now. Once you’ve grinded through the levels and unlocked the sniper scope for the Kar, it’s one of the most fun rifles to use in the game. Even when the developers tried to make the META move away from sniping, the occasional headshot could still down the opponent in one!

Get to the chopper!

It’s time to jump on the helicopter and head to your favourite drop zone in Call of Duty: Warzone. Let us know how you get on with our end of Verdansk META! Maybe you could even give some of the old classics a go too…
