Juggernauts make life difficult for players in Call of Duty: Warzone – or easier, depending on which side of the minigun you are on. At first, the powerful killstreaks were only available in the separate Juggernaut Royale mode, then they were also included in the regular Battle Royale.
They work in a similar way to the multiplayer of CoD: Modern Warfare: Die beefy heavy combat suits only need to be put on once, then the player can keep them until death. With the minigun, Juggernauts not only deal extremely strong and destroy vehicles in no time, but also swallow an extremely large number of bullets.
Where is the problem?
Juggernauts are making major changes to the meta-strategy of the Battle Royale. In the course of a game, players can pick up a rare random drop or get a suit from a bunker. These players often prevail through their advantage into the final. That completely changes the balance of the affected matches.
So you can see in the last circles of CoD: Warzone that Juggernauts dominate the action there. Although players with armored suits and minigun are quite slow, Juggernauts can also sit in vehicles and therefore move quickly across the map.
In the last circle and those prevailing there Close range fighting a Juggernaut with armor and a destructive minigun has a strong advantage. So much so that the meta-strategy is shifting towards effective countermeasures. Previously, unpleasant items such as riot shield and underflow grenade launcher are now in vogue to counter the Juggernauts.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens to the Juggernauts in the future. After all, big changes are on the program for Warzone on December 10th, when the switch to CoD: Cold War takes place. It is still unclear whether the Juggernauts will “survive” this update.
