Warzone players call for vehicle exit animation to be added
Playing are now calling for an Warzone vehicle exit animation to be added to the Call of Duty battle royale game in the same way when you enter a vehicle.
The PKM is one of the strongest LMGs in Warzone Season 3, excelling at range with a high damage potential and large magazine size.
Warzone Season 3 has no set meta, and players can take advantage of a range of weapons and loadouts, and still be effective. If you’re looking for something new to try, look no further than the PKM LMG, which can keep up with the best Krig 6 and CR-56 AMAX builds. It’s especially effective against snipers as its ammunition belt allows for heavy suppressive fire.
The PKM is a great addition to any Warzone squad but also holds its own in BR solos and duos. Here are the best attachments and perks to maximize its potential across Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.
Best Warzone PKM loadout for Season 3Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: 26.9″ Extended Barrel
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
- Underbarrel: Snatch Grip
Stick to the outdoors or hold down buildings with this loadout and you’ll find squads running for cover as you relentlessly rain down rounds on them.
As this PKM is built for range, the Monolithic Suppressor and 26.9″ Extended Barrel are necessary for maximizing its damage potential. The VLK 3.0x Optic also helps with range with its solid magnification and hidden buff to recoil control. In most circumstances, 100 rounds will be enough but be careful of using the PKM out in the open as it has a slow reload time.
All these attachments which maximize range slow the weapon down. Adding a Tac Laser and the Snatch Grip counters these heavy attachments, vastly increasing its ADS time and recoil control. If you get caught in an ambush or spot a sniper glint, you’ll still have time to react and get accurate shots downrange.
Best perks to use with Warzone PKM
A Warzone loadout is nothing without its perks, so you want to run upgrades that will help you to survive in any situation.
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
Explosives are incredibly lethal in Warzone, which is why so many players run semtex as their lethal equipment. If you have any hope of surviving a barrage of explosives, you need to run E.O.D. As long as you have any armor, you’ll be able to tank explosions.
When carrying an LMG, you’ll need something for CQB in your pocket. An SMG or shotgun will be crucial to winning close-range fights, and Overkill allows you to receive two primary weapons from one loadout drop. You’ll also want Ghost from your next loadout to keep you hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.
As the PKM is a light machine gun, it’s extremely heavy. Swapping weapons while carrying an LMG is a tedious task, and will probably get you killed while in a pinch. Amped vastly increases your weapon swap speed, meaning you can pull out a sidearm like the MP5 or FFAR almost instantly.
How to unlock the PKM in Warzone Season 3
The PKM is an easy weapon to unlock in Modern Warfare and Warzone, considering it is unlocked by default. You won’t have to do anything to obtain this weapon for your arsenal.
Best alternatives to Warzone’s PKM
If you’re not feeling the PKM after some gameplay, you should try out some other LMG’s, like the Bruen Mk9 and the Stoner 63. Or, if you want a long-range Assault Rifle, the Kilo 141 remains a solid choice.
Try out the PKM in Warzone Season 3, and as top streamer NICKMERCS explains, you might be running the future meta weapon.
