It is possible to get your own loadout in Warzone 2, but only to a limited extent.
In the past few weeks, I have repeatedly stumbled across the topic of “loadouts” in connection with Call of Duty: Warzone 2. As a reminder, these are the packages of weapons specially modified with attachments, including various perks, with which many out there obviously feel “at home”. After all, it is often the weapons that you have adapted to your own playing style in meticulous detail work and are therefore experienced and safe in dealing with these guns.
But while accessing these loadouts in Warzone 1 and also the multiplayer of Modern Warfare 2 is and was not a big problem, Warzone 2 works significantly differently here. Because your own loadouts can only be obtained very selectively, for example through special drops, which usually only happen later in the course of a round. You can find more details on this in this article:

And a whole lot of people out there seem to dislike that exact loadout constraint. What I can gather from comment columns or videos, many would prefer to only play with their self-created loadouts permanently, the large number of “How to get your loadout” articles on the net also clearly speaks for this.
Why loadouts in Warzone are not important to me
I have to tell you: I really don’t understand all the clamor for the loadouts. Of course, I also have my favorite ratchets, such as the Kastov 762, which I’m actually a little bit proud of when it comes to my personal setup. But I really only need them in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. Not in Battle Royale.
Because: For me, random weapons have always been a significant part of the fascination of Battle Royale games in Warzone. Because the premise is simple: I start with a simple pistol and have to find better armament. I simply don’t know what awaits me there, but after that I have to get along with the weapon I’ve found and otherwise keep looking. I’ve always liked this adaptive approach better than relying on the safe option of your own loadout. Especially since the game pushes me to the next places more regularly, just to see if there are better weapons there.
Speaking of weapons: There are two new ones in the first season, here is the trailer for them:

Not knowing exactly what to expect in a round on the map has always fascinated me with Warzone. And the guns have always been a part of it. The fact that you can of course have bad luck and bite the dust quickly with a lousy gun loot happens, of course, I don’t want to deny that at all. But that makes the rounds in which I still get a few kills with a completely unfamiliar or even unloved gun all the more satisfying.
I expressly welcome the fact that Warzone 2 supports this random approach even more and deprives me of the security of my own loadouts, but of course I can also understand where the desire for the modified guns comes from.
Warzone 2 is Free2Play and playable on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One and PC since November 16th. From November 28th, Warzone Caldera will return after a two-week break. You can read what has changed after the break in our separate article.
What do you think of the loadouts in Warzone 2: do you absolutely need them or do you see it like me?
