JGOD reveals Warzone scope meta

Warzone, Modern Warfare, and Black Ops Cold War’s weapons have several different scopes for you to choose from. YouTuber JGOD has broken down the meta Cold War Optics for Warzone Season 3.

The VLK 3.0x Optic has long been the meta scope for Warzone’s Assault Rifles, boasting perfect magnification and low visual recoil. However, Cold War’s weapons don’t use the same scopes, so players have been searching for the best Optic to use for the 1980s weapons in Season 3.

The CR-56 AMAX has become the Season 3 meta, and because it’s a Modern Warfare weapon, players can equip the VLK Optic. It’s confirmed to be receiving a nerf soon, so YouTuber JGOD believes Cold War’s Assault Rifles will become the meta afterward.

Ahead of the AMAX’s nerf, JGOD has broken down the best Optics for Cold War’s Sniper Rifles and Assault Rifles.

Warzone Royal and Cross 4x scope

After Raven Software fixed the glitched sniper scopes that had no glint, all high-zoom Modern Warfare scopes now reveal your position. JGOD has explained why the Royal and Cross 4x scope is the best for Cold War snipers, as it actually gives you an advantage over MW scopes.

Cold War’s 4x has stronger magnification than it says, bringing it closer to Modern Warfare’s standard Sniper Scope. However, as it’s listed as a 4x, it has no glint. You’ll be able to line up targets without them ever knowing where you are.

For Cold War’s Assault Rifles, JGOD described how the SUSAT Multizoom is the best Optic. While having decent magnification, what makes the SUSAT so great is that it has no visual recoil. It doesn’t affect the weapon’s true recoil, but you won’t see the screen shake and the reticle won’t rise nearly as much.

The scope will slow your aim down sight speed, so JGOD recommends using the SUSAT Multizoom with the Serpent Wrap to maximize recoil control and ADS speed.

After the CR-56 AMAX is nerfed, JGOD believes Cold War rifles with the SUSAT will become Season 3’s meta.
