The loadout system has changed after the launch of Warzone 2.0; instead of being able to purchase a full Custom loadout in 10 grands, now you have to buy each weapon individually from your loadouts.

If you wish to have a full loadout, you can follow a few methods to get equipped with a complete loadout early in the game.

There are 3 different ways you can get a custom loadout in the new Warzone 2.0 as; unlike the previous game where you could buy a whole loadout, this time either you can spend $5000 for each weapon at the very start of the game, or you can try these 3 methods to equip your loadout.

Buy Stations

  1. Everything easy comes with a price and the case is no different with Buy Stations, they allow you to quickly equip the weapons from your loadout at the very beginning of the game.
  2. But unlike Warzone 1 now you can’t have the whole loadout right away.
  3. Each weapon from your Custom loadout costs $5000 and I recommended purchasing one during the start of the game so you can get in the action fast and earn some more points to buy the remaining items from the station.
  4. Performing side activities helps a lot in gaining money for the Buy Stations. It’s the safest way to get equipped if you don’t want others to ruin your party by dropping in the zones and stealing everything before you even get a chance.

The money is limited, and the choices are limitless, so we need to be very specific about what we are looking for and what we need to keep moving forward in the game. The station allows you to choose between spending on gear or weapons.

I recommend you to grab your primary weapon first, as that will make things super smooth for you, you know how it works, and you will be able to earn plenty more credits without relying upon any gear for the time being. Still, you will have some funds left to spend on perks and gear items.

Utilize them carefully or save them till you have enough to have your secondary as well, along with the remaining gear.

Loadout Drop

Now this is where the fun begins, unlike the previous game where you get to feast on the loadout drop all by yourself, this time it’s open to loot by everyone.

  1. If you have any previous experience with the game like Tom Clancy’s The Division, the concept is pretty similar.
  2. You get notified when a drop is inbound and your minimap gets updated with the highlighted area where the drop will be landing.
  3. Now all the players get notified about the drop.
  4. The first team to reach the drop with all the ongoing action is the one that will be getting their hands on the loot, so proper team comms are required in this method of acquiring the loadout while your team holds your back against the enemies.
  5. Loadout Drops allows you access to the loadout menu, where you can choose from your 10 custom loadouts and pick the right one suitable for the match and earn the victory.


This one is what we can say is more of a PVE content than the PVP part of Warzone 2.0. In Strongholds three different parts of the map will get highlighted and you will have the option to attack either one and kill all the NPCs Defending it to claim rewards.

Strongholds come with different quests and rewards, and depending on how hard the quest is, the rewards just keep getting better, but you do need to be there on time to farm the Stronghold and earn the best possible loot it has to offer.

If you fail to do so and end up being late on sight then you can do additional activities like defusing the bomb to get a loadout for yourself; I will explain below.

  1. If someone from your team or nearby squads is performing the Stronghold, you will have a livewire Icon popping up on your screen along with a timer that, if you utilize it properly, you can help them defuse the bomb at the Bomb Location.
  2. Once you reach the location, there is a massive chance that it will be guarded by a bunch of enemies protecting it from you.
  3. Clear out all the nearby enemies, mostly NPCs, to complete the quest and get near to the bomb to diffuse, which only takes a few seconds if you have any left.

On completion of that side quest you get rewarded with some gear items and weapons most common among them are,

  1. Gas Mask
  2. Armor Vest
  3. Black site Key

You can also access the chest now to get back to your loadout and equip it in a similar way as that of loadout drops and get back in the fights with your main gear.

So far, these are the best possible ways to get your best custom loadouts in the new Warzone 2.0, and we are pretty confident that this guide will make it easy and quick for you to equip them once you land on the field.
