What You Need to Know about the New CoD Battle Royale Mode: Warzone

Where we droppin’, boys?

Gather your squad, survive together, and reign supreme in this brand new 150-player match mode on Call of Duty: Warzone.

The upcoming battle royale mode has sparked hyped and interest across online gaming communities.

Similar to other titular BR games like Fortnite and Apex Legends, players will have to outsmart others in a battle of skill, luck, and strategy in order to survive.

The good news is: this battle royale mode will be free-to-play for everyone on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.


Players who own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare can download the 15-22GB update starting on March 10. If your update doesn’t start immediately, try resetting your consoles or reloading battle.net.

Modern Warfare season Battle Pass owners can continue their progress on Warzone. The more matches you play in this new BR mode, the more content you may unlock!

Don’t have MW?

If you don’t have a copy of Modern Warfare, you can download the game (at a larger 80-100GB) which comes with an update of this brand new BR mode.

Rundown of MW’s Unique BR mode

In each match, 150 players will be split into squads of three members. After jumping out of a plane, they have to choose where to land on the huge map (Verdansk) carrying only a default handgun.

On the ground, they have to act quick and search for weapons to defend themselves and attack enemies in the battlefield.

A circle indicating the safe area on the map will gradually shrink over time. Supposedly, the unsafe region will take the form of a green gas that can quickly deplete a player’s health.

Lucky players who picked up a gas mask item can keep themselves safe from the toxic green gas, but only for a short time.

There will be five vehicles for traveling across the map: ATVs, SUVs, cargo trucks, tactical rovers and helicopters.


Unlike other BR games where killed players are automatically eliminated from the match, Warzone offers players a second chance. When a player is downed, they will find themselves in a gulag.

If they want to have a second chance in the match, they’ll have to win a one vs one match against another downed player.

Those who still lose will be left with no choice but to wait for their squad members to buy them a redeployment.


Team-based tasks during matches are called Contracts. Squads can have one active contract at a time, which varies from opening a number of supply boxes to defending an area.

Once completed successfully, the squad will be graced with money, loot, and other in-game special abilities.


Plunder is a mode included in Warzone awarded to squads with the most amount of money. Teams will have to work together to gather the most cash, which can be done by completing contracts or achieving a killstreak.

Buy stations in Plunder offers additional items that will help a team secure some funds as the game continues.
