The Warzone meta is constantly changing and staying current can give you a big advantage. Sometimes, however, experimenting with other weapons can be beneficial, as one CoD Warzone player with an insane crossbow display proved.

Over the years, the Warzone meta has constantly changed, from the dark days of DMRZone to the Burst Rifle and MAC-10 meta. Developers are always tinkering with their toys, leading to some guns rising to the occasion and some falling out of favor like the AMAX did.

Warzone Pacific has kept Caldera fairly balanced so far, with some notable exceptions such as Bren, Automaton, and Cooper Carbine. Amidst the sea of ​​over 100 weapons that Warzone now has, there is always a hidden gem waiting to be discovered and the crossbow just might be.


There’s more than one way to skin a cat in Warzone.

Warzone crossbow could be a meta option

The crossbow’s pick rate isn’t as high as many other guns in the game, likely due to the lack of skill needed to use it.

Like sniper rifles, the crossbow requires a high degree of accuracy to use due to its bolt action nature. But as Reddit user DaveyDST has proven, some skilled shots can lead to some truly exceptional gameplay.

In a compilation video, they showed off the weapon’s versatility with crazy mid-air shots and precise arrows in intense 1v1 situations.

In addition to the crossbow, they also sported a riot shield to soak up a few clips before unleashing a barrage of bolts or trapping an enemy player in the poison of a gas grenade.

Warzone Reddit users were impressed with the nature of the loadout and gameplay, especially as the player scored 15 kills en route to a Warzone victory!

“Sir, you are a gloriously terrible human being. Kill me with this loadout and I’ll angrily cheer you on,” one user joked. Another said: “Love that you’re not playing like a rat to win with this. You’re out there with 15 kills like crazy! Love it.”

There’s more than one way to get the job done in Warzone, but it shows that you can land high kill plays and pick up voiceovers by strictly sticking to the meta.
