The OG Gulag has returned but with some different aspects in Season 6.

The original Gulag is back in Warzone in Season 6. Although not the exact same, the devs brought a revamped version of the classic Gulag that was a staple of Warzone for quite some time.

The Grav AR is the fastest shooting gun in the weapon’s class.

There are five new weapons that are dropping with Season 6 of Warzone for free. A gun that can possibly shake up the meta is the Grav, a fast-firing assault rifle. This gun is described as having the fastest bullet velocity of any AR with decent damage.

Another weapon is the .410 Ironhide shotgun that players can get for free by leveling up their battle pass. Shotguns have seen a rise in Warzone with the Gallo being extremely good but getting nerfed. Also, the Battle Axe is now here for free that players can earn by completing an in-game challenge
