Call of Duty Warzone offers some basic loadouts to newcomers that can be equipped from drops or bought from Buy Stations. You cannot create your class as the entire custom loadout section is initially locked when you play the game for the first time. However, as you progress through the levels, you can access different items and guns you can use in future custom loadouts and weapon builds.

Warzone can be challenging at times for fresh players as it requires a lot of grind and effort to earn XP and level up. Regardless, it is something you need to overcome to be able to utilize high-tier attachments, equipment, and perks. Moreover, playing a few matches in a day can boost your level as the points quickly accumulate in the account.

This article will highlight the best way to unlock custom loadouts in Warzone.


How to get access to custom loadouts in Warzone

Here is a quick guide that you can utilize to build your loadouts in Warzone.

  • Launch the game and queue for a match in any game mode.
  • Try to loot up quickly and secure a few kills to rake in points.
  • You can also activate various contracts available throughout the map and complete them to earn additional XP.
  • If your squad is eliminated, you can easily go back to the lobby and enter a fresh lobby.
  • You will need to repeat this process till your account reaches level 4.
  • After you reach the required level, you can head over to the “Weapons” section and start building custom loadouts with different weapons.

Resurgence is one of the best game modes in Activision's battle royale for quickly raising the level of your account. Furthermore, if you have any Double XP tokens left in your inventory, activate them to quickly accumulate lots of experience points and quickly progress even further.


Why is a higher account level better in Warzone?

A higher account level can be beneficial for players as it unlocks new equipment, items, and killstreaks. Moreover, the chance of you getting more skilled players in the lobby also increases, which in turn can help you learn the game and rank up faster. This might seem unfair, but it can go a long way in helping the newer players understand the game and its basic mechanics.

Weapons also have different unlock criteria associated with the player account level. Modern Warfare 3 introduced Armory Challenges as well to help users gain access to better weapons. By creating custom loadouts with new weapons, you can raise their progression to get new attachments and create better builds.
