So what are the best items to pick up at the Buy Station?
Teammates over Everything
Buying back a teammate from the Gulag is the best investment over any other perks or upgrades you can get from the buy station. However, if the teammate was someone who was not compatible, then reconsider. But, most of the time, buying someone back is always the best option.
The first reason is that they provided multiple benefits into one purchase. They can be drivers, snipers, armor holders, grenade holders, and pushers, all at the same time. Teammates are the most multi-dimensional addition to your squad.
Even if they are bad at the game, this still should not stop you from repurchasing them. At the very least, you will reduce your chances of being outnumbered. It is much more preferable to be on a 4v4 than a 4v3 with an extra UAV. When you have the chance, always buy back the teammate since the return on that investment will come back to you tenfold.
Other than your teammates, UAVs are the second-best investment in the game. There are two reasons. First, in a late-game scenario, most of the time, your squad has been widdled down. Knowing who is where, and how many full quads are nearby, gives you a tremendous tactical advantage.
At this point, you know where to go and know where to avoid. Rather than being a deer in headlights, the UAV allows you to navigate past your low numbers and capitalize on the opportunity you would not have known existed.
Second, in the early-to-mid game scenario, the UAV provides a gigantic overview of your tactical path to follow. For example, if you want to heal up and restock, you know which places are safe and which ones aren’t. Further, you know which general path to take to avoid as many enemies as possible.
Precision Airstrikes are by far one of the coolest and most satisfying purchases you can get from the buy station. There has been so much community feedback and video evidence of complete squad wipes because of the airstrike.
Using airstrikes is very simple. You point at the direction you want it to go on and expect the enemies to die by the missile, get damaged, or hide and cluster to their surrounding area.
One of the best scenarios to do this is during the minutes of the last circle. Most of the time, a team or two will always be following behind you. Due to the high-intensity of the game, shoot the laser at their direction or a nearby vehicle. At the least, you will cause gas damage, and at best, an instant kill for the entire squad.
None of the previous items matter if you have a terrible loadout. Make sure you have the best Warzone loadouts setup, and that you are calling them in whenever possible. Skilled players usually buy one in the early game with Overkill perk. Then, they will call in another one later on with Ghost and swap the secondary weapon out.
Keep in mind buying a loadout is not always an option if you are low for cash. However, calling one in will allow your entire squad to pick the best gear, which increases your odds of winning.
Now that you know how to manage your money in Warzone make sure to use your gameplay knowledge and rack up some victories.
