Custom loadouts are one of the many new features Infinity Ward implemented into Call of Duty: Warzone. The loadouts work the same way as they do in regular multiplayer, but, of course, you don’t start with one of these classes. Instead, you start with a pistol and are forced to either scavenge for a weapon or for Cash. If you happen upon $6,000, then you can buy one of your loadouts at a Buy Station. However, if you don’t know how to set your class up, then this feature has no use to you. Here’s how you can set a loadout up in Warzone.

How loadouts work in Warzone

If you’ve played Modern Warfare multiplayer, then you know exactly how loadouts work. You pick a primary and secondary weapon, five attachments, three perks, and two pieces of equipment. While this basic system is in Warzone, there’s a little more to it than simply selecting items.

You can still pick your weapons and attachments in Warzone, but like in multiplayer, you’ll need to level the weapons up to use higher-tier attachments. You can do this by playing Warzone and using that particular weapon. If you manage to secure a couple of kills, your weapon rank will increase.

This is the basic system for creating your loadout in Warzone. Of course, there are more advanced mechanics, like using Overkill. This is a perk that allows you to pick two primary weapons instead of one secondary weapon.

Along with perks, the pieces of equipment you pick also matter greatly. Many players are running items like Heartbeat Sensors, Stun Grenades, and Claymores. However, you can pick anything as long as you’re a high enough level.

If you came into Warzone with a new account, you’ll need to reach level 55 before you can unlock everything the game has to offer. If you’re past level 55, you have to access to all basic aspects of the loadout.

That’s the basic system for setting up a custom loadout in Call of Duty: Warzone! Make sure to keep up with Daily Esports for more guides and news.
