From our gun barrels directly into your ear holes, Warzone Audio Bang is Rock Paper Shotgun’s fortnightly Call of Duty: Warzone podcast. You’ll hear all the news and rumours surrounding Activision’s online juggernaut, as well as some of our own stories from Verdansk.

    New Verdansk, New Thoughts

    New Verdansk, New Thoughts

    In this week's episode of Warzone Audio Bang, we go nuclear. And by this, we mean that James and I discuss the aftermath of Verdansk's explosive transition into the 1980s, as opposed to, errr, starting a nuclear energy company.
     
    This of course means it's full of chatter. Inane chatter about what we make of Verdansk's new locations and it's new colour palette, as well as the meta shake-up of the century. What else? Oh yes, two new guns! One of which we've affectionately named the PeePeePooPoo, which we find - and will always find - very amusing.
     
    In Stories From The Warzone, we discuss the time I actually entered The Matrix. Like, channeled Neo from the lobby scene, and clicked heads with laser focus. And we also talk about that time we all got crushed by a truck and felt very hard done by.
     
    CoD Names makes its triumphant return as well, with three absolute sizzlers, all of which actually relate to personalities from previous episodes. It's something we hadn't planned at all, but it's worked out very nicely. Perhaps a clear sign that CoD players share a similar energy and are all linked in some way. Very deep stuff.
     
    And, finally, James quizzes me on what I reckon the price of a tactical tomahawk would cost. It's safe to say that it left quite the impression on me.
     
    Hmmm, that "finally" was a bit early actually, as I'm sad to announce that this is the final Warzone Audio Bang as you know it. Just like Warzone always changing, so do other things, like James' life. My co-host is moving onto exciting new things, and sadly has banged his last audio.
     
    This doesn't mean that the Audio Bang format is gone forever. It'll return in some capacity, but may not be quite as Warzone oriented as before. But, yes, it's been a real pleasure nattering with James and I'm going to miss podding with him dearly. Obviously, we won't stop playing Warzone together. Put your ear to the wind and you'll hear us whining, don't worry.

    So Near, Yet So FFAR

    So Near, Yet So FFAR

    James and Ed are back to rattle your eardrums with their words on Warzone. The zombie outbreak has escalated a little, and some 'nerfs' have hit two rifles they despise. James also can't stop accidentally purchasing RC-XDs at the Buy Stations.
     
    There's also talk about what it feels like to be 27 years old and the unbelievable gift Ed received from his Warzone brethren. James talks about this 007 car chase sequence where a helicopter pursued him for ages, and Ed reckons it deserves a movie adaptation. And of course, they blame all their recent losses in the Warzone on the meta. They hate the FFAR meta and it sucks.
     
    In another surprise, Ed actually spent some money in the COD Store on a skin. He thinks it's very cool and he would absolutely spend his hard-earned cash on virtual items again.
     
    COD names re-emerges once again, this time with a family the lads keep bumping into and a certain someone with a particularly large appendage. The Captain Price is Right also makes a triumphant return, and this time Ed has picked out a Tac-Laser for James to take a swing at.

    The Captain Price Is Right

    The Captain Price Is Right

    Ed and James have continued to pop into Verdansk for post-work shenanigans despite the wish for more wild events going down in our favourite danger zone. The zombies from last time have moved to the bank vault, because as we all know, the undead much prefer cash-in-hand for tax purposes.
     
    That’s not all, though! They've been playing extremely well in the game’s Resurgence mode, mostly because James can jump in and die immediately, before getting respawned for free. Ed’s 27th birthday is coming up and James teases a surprise their squad has gotten him - one that in the real world he has received and very much enjoyed. There'll be debriefing on the next episode.
     
    They also chat a bit about the brand new crossbow, the R1 Shadowhunter. Its arrival means Ed will now be able to jump into Verdansk with two crossbows in tow. He's always finding unique ways to slice through a stale metagame. 
     
    There’s even a special mention of Craig Charles, who can consider this an open invitation to come on the show. Big fans.
     
    COD Names returns, as the lads bump into one of the greatest soap opera characters in UK history And, they have a brand new segment: The Captain Price Is Right. They find the real-life versions of things in hyper-realistic military shooter Call Of Duty: Warzone, and then they must guess – based on how it plays in the game – how much it costs in the real world. This time around they go for the World War II relic, the Kar98k.

    Zombie Here Now

    Zombie Here Now

    Verdansk is James and Ed's second home, a less-than-safe space to relax after work and pull some triggers. It's a place they deeply care about, and now it's filled with undead. Initially, they'd welcomed them in with open arms, but now the zombies are starting to bore them. And they share their desperation to see something, anything come of their presence in this episode of Warzone Audio Bang.
     
    Rest assured, this second episode isn't just one big whine, though. We take a brief look at what Warzone could learn from Fortnite, a game which seemingly never stops changing. And there's some talk of our two victories in a row; perhaps our greatest feat yet.
     
    Call Of Duty is filled with many interesting player names, and each week we place three under the miscroscope to dissect with our mouths. This time, there's one name in particular we're actually scared to repeat again, in case he hunts us down. Otherwise, we compare one of our teammates to a famous dog whisperer.
     
    There's also a bit of chatter over the meta right now and how it's getting a bit tired. With this in mind, why not have a gander at James's CR-56 AMAX loadout and my Fara 83 loadout. These aren't crazy strong, but they're fun to use, and we love fun here on the podcast.

    We Love You Verdansk, We Do

    We Love You Verdansk, We Do

    James Law and Ed Thorn have produced words from their throats on the topic of Call Of Duty: Warzone, as Warzone Audio Bang joins the Electronic Wireless Show and The PC Gaming Weekspot as Rock Paper Shotgun's third podcast.
     
    In this first episode of Warzone Audio Bang, they detail exactly why the game holds a special place in their hearts. And it's not just because they like shooty bang. They also consider how Take That's Gary Barlow would fare in Verdansk, and they take the opportunity to compare three of their regular teammates to different rodents. 
     
    They also touch on what they thought of the massive ship that brought zombies to Warzone. There's also a bit of chatter on some War Tracks they'd like to see added, and they kick off a regular bit where they question who could be behind three of their favourite CoD usernames. They're convinced no other game attracts such a number of interesting individuals.
     
    Over time we hope you'll grow to love us as much as we love Warzone.
