New Mode: Warzone Rumble
Experience the vast land of Verdansk in 50 vs. 50 action. Two teams must outfight, outplay, and outlast the other team to win. This mode features custom loadouts, vehicles, and quick respawns, making it a must-try for Warzone players!
Preparation & Coordination Is Crucial
Since you will be forced to run a 2 man team, your team's perk and loadouts may be needed to be shifted to cater to versatility to fill in multiple roles. Be sure to also coordinate with your teammates often; having a man downed will cripple your chances of survival dramatically as you will need to face the odds alone until your member can be regrouped.
Key Tips To Win
- Communicate With Chat & Pings
- Prioritize Versatile Loadouts
- Practice Indoor Clearing & Routing
- Prioritize Survival, Your Teammate Will Be Vulnerable While In Gulag

What Is Battle Royale?
Last Man Standing
The one rule of Warzone Battle Royale is simple: survive. The game starts by dropping players into a huge open map of Verdansk. Here, players will need to fight and outwit each other until only one team remains. Aside from hostile competitors, players must also contend with the map's creeping gas.
3-Man Team Or Solo Fight For Survival
There are 2 ways to play Battle Royale: Solo or Trio. In Solo, the player contends with 149 other players for the top position. The default mode places the player as part of a 3-man team as they battle their way to the top.
Unique Warzone Battle Royale Features
- Players can complete Contracts or Objectives to earn cash
- Cash can be collected to purchase weapons and killstreaks
- Players are given the chance to get back to the fight after getting killed

Explore And Loot
The whole map of Verdansk and its interiors are open for players to explore. In order to survive the mayhem, players are encouraged to scavenge for supplies as they fight until the bitter end.
5 Sectors Of Verdansk
- Sector 1: Verdansk North
- Sector 2: Verdansk West
- Sector 3: Verdansk Southwest
- Sector 4: Verdansk Central and South
- Sector 5: Verdansk East
Warzone Gas Mechanics
Keep Out Of The Gas
The gas limits the movement of players, damaging them should they get near it. Gas acts as the game mode's borders, forcing players to continuously move forward to a safe spot, thereby also forcing them to encounter other players. The gas expands after a specific amount of time and the game will give players a heads-up before it starts to creep in.
Game Ends When Only 1 Team Remains
The gas will eventually cover the entirety of the map but this does not mean that the game is over. The game will only be over if there is only one player or team left standing in the fight.
Use Vehicles To Escape
One quick way to outrun the gas is to use vehicles. Driving vehicles can help you cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. However, do note that vehicles produce very audible noises that other players can use to pinpoint your location.Check Out the Vehicles List Here!
Warzone Money - Cash Uses & How to Get
Use To Buy Perks & Equipment
Scattered across the map are Buy Stations that you can use to purchase equipment and items that can help you in the fight. You can use cash collected from completed contracts to get a better edge over your opponents.Check Out Buy Stations Here!
Use For Weapon Drop
You can also buy a Weapon Drop using the Buy Stations. Safely getting the Weapon Drop allows you to use your Custom Loadout, together with the Perks, in the fight.Check Loadout Drops Here!
Dying In Battle Royale - Warzone Gulag
1v1 For A Second Chance
A unique twist in Modern Warfare's take on the Battle Royale mode is that players can be revived even after getting killed. They can do so by participating in a 1v1 Gunfight match up inside the Gulag map. The player that wins gets revived back into the game. Note that the Gulag map is a separate instance from the Battle Royale map.Check Out the Warzone Gulag Here!
No Third Chance
Players who died and were revived via the Gulag cage match will not be given another chance once they die again.
Gulag Loadouts Are Now Drawn From A Pool (May 19)
After the version 1.21.1 update, Loadouts will now randomly choose from 6 ARs and 4 SMGs. It will be all automatic, no burst or single fire guns included. Familiarize yourself with these to gain an edge!

Revive With Redeployment Token
Players who died and have failed to win in a 1v1 match can also wait for their teammates to revive them via a Redeployment Token. Teammates can purchase the said token via a Buying Station to revive a fallen teammate, increasing the team's chances of winning.
Warzone Battle Royale Gameplay Tips
A party that sticks together, survives together. There is strength in numbers and while being a lone wolf can be tempting, sticking together with your team allows all of you to cover possible angles and to call out on immediate threats.
Communication Is Key
Even if you are playing with random players, communicate and ping useful sites and spotted enemies. This highly increases your team's awareness of your surroundings and your chances of survival.
Guard Critical Points
Even with the absence of skill, Battle Royale is a game mode that can be won through sheer cunning. Make use of sites such as Buy Stations and use them as bait for enemies to come in. Then when the timing is right, fire away or close in for the kill.
Don't Hurry To Revive
One of the possible hard choices in Battle Royale is thinking about whether to revive a fallen teammate or not. Weigh the situation and think if it is worth risking getting fired upon by the enemy team just to revive a fallen teammate. You can also opt to backup and wait for better circumstances or you could just revive your teammate via Redeployment Tokens.Check Out How to Revive & Redeploy Here!
