Designed for Engagement: Black Adder and Tarpon
Season Five is in full force and the Shadow Company needs recruits to get Verdansk under control. To show we mean business, we’re highlighting two weapon blueprints from the Season Five Battle Pass that can help you send your enemies straight to the Gulag.
Read on for two suggested Warzone loadouts featuring these blueprints so you can hit the ground running.
Strike and Clear with the Black Adder
Primary Weapon: Black Adder (Tier 8)
Secondary Weapon: Phantom Limb (Earn Free at Tier 1)
Perks: Kill Chain, Pointman, Spotter
Equipment: Heartbeat Sensor, Frag Grenade
Field Upgrade: Dead Silence (*Field Upgrades are only useable in Plunder)
Play the vanguard for your squad using the hard-hitting Black Adder. This Epic weapon blueprint is kitted out for range and accuracy with a four attachment spread including the Monolithic Suppressor for extended range and sound suppression, the Merc Foregrip and Rubberized Grip Tape for improved recoil control and hip fire accuracy, and the PBX Holo 7 Sight for a wide, clear picture that performs well in close- and mid-range fights. For the fifth attachment, consider Sleight of Hand for a faster reload speed or the Tac Laser to speed up weapon handling.
This loadout is great for players who like to loot, clear out buildings, and take the lead on Contracts. Try it out in Plunder for big payouts.
Support Your Team with the Tarpon
Primary Weapon: Tarpon (Tier 35)
Secondary Weapon: RPG-7
Perks: Double Time, Restock, Tune Up
Equipment: Smoke Grenade, Thermite
Field Upgrade: Trophy System (*Field Upgrades are only useable in Plunder)
The Tarpon is not to be messed with, complete with the Muzzle Brake for recoil stabilization, the Operator Foregrip and Rubberized Grip Tape for improved recoil control, and the Tac Laser to maintain a solid aim down sight speed. Consider an optic for the fifth attachment for greater precision at range, or perhaps the XRK Ultralight barrel attachment for snappier handling.
This loadout shines in a supporting role and can be especially fun when travelling around in a vehicle. The combination of an LMG and launcher gives you the suppressive and explosive power to take on whole squads at a time even when they’re gunning after you in their own ride. Great for aggressive teams who move fast and pursue a high kill count.
Blueprint Specific Tips for Warzone
- Consider the 30 Round Mags attachment for the Black Adder if its default 20 rounds feel too restrictive in sustained firefights. It’ll cost you some handling speed, which you can help negate by switching out the Rubberized Grip Tape for the fast handling Stippled Grip Tape.
- All aboard! If you really want to have fun, equip the Tarpon and hop on the train. Sure, it’s tricky to aim when you’re moving on the track, but with such a hefty magazine you’ve got plenty of chances to land your shots.
