Upgrading weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone is an important but time consuming process. However, the process doesn’t have to be the usual grind players expect.
Everyone in Warzone has to deal with gun leveling to some degree. Each level gained on a weapon gives players more access to new attachments that can be used in a loadout. Most of Warzone’s best weapon attachments, whether Black Ops Cold War or Modern Warfare weapons, are unlocked at higher weapon levels.
The typical gun leveling process in Warzone isn’t necessarily as slow as multiplayer grind, but it doesn’t hurt to speed up the process.
Quick methods of upgrading guns in Call of Duty: Warzone
One of the most common ways to upgrade weapons in Warzone is to simply purchase one of the Call of Duty games and play multiplayer. Whether it’s Black Ops Cold War or Modern Warfare, multiplayer progression will carry over to weapons and loadouts in Warzone. However, this method can be expensive and players have a better free option.
Instead of getting into real Warzone games, players should line up in the loot game mode. Two major perks for upgrading guns exist in Plunder: respawns and loadouts.
Respawns in Plunder are endless until the end of the game and players appear with their loadout. This allows everyone to skip the currency and the buying process and just start taking out players with the desired weapon.
Besides just playing Plunder, a great way to speed up the leveling process is by taking contracts such as the Scavenger or Reconnaissance Contracts.
While taking out enemies with the desired weapon, completing contracts will add another layer to the process. Before completing the contract, players should make sure that the weapon they wish to upgrade is in their hands. If the weapon is equipped and ready for use, the experience gained will go to that weapon rather than to a secondary weapon.
If players run a few matches with XP tokens, their weapons will level up in no time to unlock the best attachments.
