How to unlock Grav in Warzone
As is often the norm with new weapons in the Battle Pass, the Grav can be unlocked by leveling up the Battle Pass or purchasing a blueprint.
To unlock Grav, you must reach level 31 in the battle pass.
It is a fairly simple task, but it must be recognized that it can take a long time. If you’re playing Black Ops Cold War, we recommend completing the 24/7 modes as well as the Team Deathmatch playlists. They won’t take long in terms of match length and you can always get good XP from them, which creates a good balance.
If you opt for Warzone only, it is essential to choose Plunder instead of Battle Royale, as it will allow you to revive during the match and get the most out of each session. But Battle Royale or Rebirth modes will also work well. Up to you!
The best Warzone Grav equipment and accessories
Below are our recommendations for optimal Grav charging, as well as the corresponding levels for each:
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor (unlocks at level 46)
- Barrel: 21.3″ Task Force (unlocked at level 50)
- Optics: 3x Axial Arms (unlocked at level 22)
- Underbarrel: Field Agent’s Grasp (unlocks at level 41)
- Magazine: 50 Rnd (unlocks from the beginning)
Let’s start with the snout. You’ll want to equip the Agency Suppressor for this one, as it improves vertical recoil control and increases bullet speed and damage range, in addition to sound suppression, of course. It has an impact on aiming down speed and overall aiming stability, but not by much.
Let’s move on to the canyon. We opted for the 21.3″ Task Force, which increases damage range, bullet speed, and vertical and horizontal control. In exchange, you trade off hip-fire accuracy and ADS movement speeds, sprints, and walk with aim.Still, it is worth the inclusion and the The overall construction balances it out.
This time there is no laser or stock. Instead, we recommend pairing the Grav with an optic. We found the Axial Arms 3x to be the best option, providing zoom magnification with a decent iron sight. But as always, this comes down to personal preference.
In the slot under the barrel, the Field Agent Grip is perfect for adding additional horizontal and vertical recoil control. This accessory option comes with the caveat of slightly reducing regular and ADS firing movement speeds, but not by a ton.
Lastly, opting for the 50 Rnd attachment is the best option for the weapon’s ammunition. It decreases reload speed, but it’s worth it to have the maximum round increase.
Warzone Season 5 is almost here! If you want to know more about the firepower of the above, we explain the best Welgun load, the best Cooper Carbine load, the best Gorenko anti-tank rifle load, the best STG44 load, the best MP40 load, the best automaton loadout, best BAR loadout, best combat shotgun loadout, best Type 100 loadout and best Kar98k loadouts.
Best Warzone Grav class builds, perks and loadouts
Here are our picks for the best items, like loadouts and perks, to create the best Grav class build in Warzone:
- Perk 1: Quick Fix (unlocks at level 42)
- Perk 2: Overkill (unlocks at level 38)
- Perk 3: Expanded (unlocks at level 1)
- Secondary: Swiss K31 (unlocked by getting 2 headshots in 15 different completed matches using any sniper rifle)
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor (unlocked at level 1)
- Lethal: Claymore (unlocked at level 1)
The Grav has a high rate of fire and bullet speed, meaning it won’t take you long to take out enemies. To do this, we recommend starting health regeneration immediately afterwards with Quick Fix. As always, if level 42 sounds a bit steep, we recommend going for EOD as it will help mitigate damage from explosives and non-killstreak shots until you can unlock this perk.
We recommend going with Overkill as a second buff. This time we chose the Swiss K31 as a secondary option. It is a fast and agile rifle that can form a great combination with the main weapon.
For the third perk, we opted for Amped over the others to ensure you can switch between the two weapons as quickly as possible.
Lastly, the heartbeat sensor is the perfect companion for preparing ahead of time or tracking down anyone who dares to escape your line of sight. However, in case someone manages to sneak near you, having a Claymore placed near you should provide help when needed.
