More than 100 million players around the world have found themselves with more free time than ever before thanks to Call of Duty: Warzone, which has had a roaring start.
Despite continuing to receive rave reviews, Black Ops Cold War remains one of the top Call of Duty games, which is good news. In addition to the progression system shared between Black Ops and Warzone, 2019’s Modern Warfare has launched, adding even more content and details to Verdansk.
More than one time, we practiced and teamed up to figure out some helpful strategies and tips to use in our own training sessions. Even the games we’re winning are quiet. Our leading tips on how to become a better player of COD Warzone are below.
- Before you drop, check the map
- pop your chute to drop faster
- Avoid hoarding cash
- Dropping loads is a good idea
- Whenever possible, pick up contracts
- Leverage your resources
- Ping everything
- Get creative with equipment
- Exploit the Gulag
- To change things up, play Plunder or Resurgence
- Vary your squad size
- Watch for flares
- Stack your UAVs
- Beware the gas mask
- Watch out for in-match events
- Don’t lose hope
Before you drop, check the map
At the beginning of a match, you must choose your landing zone. You can view a map screen for your match the instant that you see the cutscene with the cargo plane starting up and see where the shrinking gas circle will begin. You can use that to gauge where people will be landing as the storm approaches, and therefore where you should aim.
With your confidence growing, it’s important that you tailor your tactics accordingly. Try getting some solid equipment if you are not interested in chaotic gunfights. Try to find crowded areas, such as the popular Superstore, to practice fighting. Choose a spot, and don’t forget to pick one.
Pop your chute to drop faster
Players figured out how to get an early advantage in Warzone pretty much as soon as it came out. Whenever you want, you can pop your parachute and glide further down the map as you drop from the cargo plane. Eventually, though, people realized that they could actually re-pop their parachute as often as they liked. People are now taking advantage of that.
Popping your chute and cutting the cords as you fall allow you to cover more ground. In addition to covering more ground, these actions allow you to land safely.
A starter pistol may also be handy after you have cut your parachute away, which may allow you a chance to shoot other people falling.
As a last option, drift sideways to gain altitude without losing altitude – an excellent tool for escaping crowded spots.
Don’t hoard your cash
Warzone’s economy depends on cash. If you complete contracts, you will receive more income (more on that later). Depending on the match, you’ll find very little or, at other matches, you’ll have plenty to choose from. Spend your money as soon as you get it and do not hold on to it for too long.
There is no cash reward for collecting in battle royale mode, so you can only use it at Buy Stations. By purchasing these killstreaks, you can purchase UAVs, Cluster Strikes, armor plating, and loadout drops to help you on your way to victory. The money can’t be taken away, so a well-timed UAV can completely win a gunfight if you act quickly.
Keep a reserve of $4,000 on hand should your teammates die frequently, so you can buy them back in if they fail.
Loadout drops are the way to go
If you are heading to a Buy Station, be aware of what should be your priority before you head out. The squad must make the purchase of a Loadout Drop their absolute priority, rather than buying a UAV. As part of a squad’s custom loadout, each member receives a set of guns and equipment.
As long as you have a loadout that you are comfortable with, all of the best players will use it in this context, almost like a glove. Following the leader isn’t a bad thing!
After you have chosen a loadout, make sure you don’t become a sitting duck. You are encouraged to experiment with perks, but we strongly recommend starting with Ghost for the best protection against UAVs and heartbeat monitors. In the majority of cases, it’s an obvious choice unless you are looking for an Overkill class that lets you use two of your favorite weapons at once.
Pick up contracts whenever you can
You can earn loot and cash while positioning yourself on the map by taking on contracts, if you’re afraid of the $10,000 price tag of the loadout drop. You can choose from five types: Bounties, Scavengers, Recon, Most Wanted, and Supply Runs.
In order to kill that player, you must locate him within a set time limit and narrow his radius as you move toward him. You are rewarded when they die. In theory, you’ll still get rewarded if someone kills the player you put a bounty on. You earn XP by starting it, and it tells you where the other player is.
In Scavenger’s Contract, you have to open three loot boxes containing solid loot and cash rewards. You will also get an Armour Satchel as an added bonus after finishing the game, allowing up to eight plates to be carried at one time. These are a given.
A lockdown mission allows you to accomplish the same goal as a recon mission, which requires the capture of a point. Standing still is sometimes necessary, sometimes openly. A tremendous tactical advantage is that they will let you know when the circle is closing. Among experts, they are preferred.
It’s not all rosy for Most Wanted. If you make it through the gulag, you will receive a cash reward, and every teammate you killed will return to the game.
In Supply Run, you are only allowed a limited period of time to get to a Buy Station. Besides personal discounts (such as a free self-revive kit or buyback), you will enjoy a host of other benefits.
As a result, these contracts provide more than loot and money – they deliver a sense of structure to a match, making it less like guesswork and more structured. Rather than hide in one place for 20 minutes and then die, I would rather run at full speed in a game that gets me a few contracts.
Share your resources
Warzone supports solo play, too, but in the main battle royale mode most players will probably want to join a squad. As a squad, we would suggest thinking tactically. Drop some plates to your squadmates if you have full protection and 5 spare plates, and they have nothing.
A loadout marker, for example, can sometimes only be purchased by pooling cash, just as it is with cash and ammo. As a result, in the long run, more selfless play will be encouraged.
Since Apex Legends, every battle royale game has used pings to determine the opponent’s location. The goal can be explained this way. It may be easier to map it to a button familiar to you. If you share information with your squad, you can make them more effective.
Get creative with equipment
Additionally, you’ll find various pieces of field equipment as you travel around the map, which may come in handy in an emergency. Field cover, Dead Silence, etc. can all be used to block an opponent’s sightline for a short time.
A field drone is an interesting tactic that can be used. When a teammate has C4, you can actually turn your drone into a miniaturized bomb.
Another powerful weapon is the Trophy System – it protects you from a few rockets or grenades, and could even kill you if you are caught up in one, allowing you to reach your destination more safely. Driving without one isn’t convenient for us.
Exploit the Gulag
Warzone’s most refreshing aspect is the fact that death does not have to be the end. You’ll be sent to the Gulag until you win a one-on-one gunfight to regain access to the battlefield if you die near the end of the game. If your squad has the money, they may still be able to buy you back even after you lose.
It is possible to assist each other in the Gulag if two of you go at the same time. Many times, our teammates have called out to us while they watched our gunfight, helping us to win. Don’t let opportunities pass you by!
Change it up by playing Plunder or Resurgence
You can work your way around an area to find cash, then take it off the map using designated points using plunder, which is part of Warzone. Due to respawns and the lack of a gas circle, the game can get much more chaotic than a battle royale.
The action-packed rounds of battle royale are a nice change of pace, and you might even like them. If you want to advance quickly, you can use it to level up your guns and you can prioritize Supply Runs with vehicles.
Season 1 introduced Rebirth Island, modeled after Alcatraz. This fast-paced map offers all the action in a far more compact area, which is an excellent option if you’re looking to switch up your pace.
Vary your squad size
Several changes have already been made to Warzone playlists since the game launched – we have a Solo mode for those who want to play alone, and we added Quads in Season 3 (the original). It would be great if you excluded a friend whenever you wanted to.
When you want only your friends on your squad, you can change the Squad Fill settings to make sure that it’s only your friends. The ability to change your tactics under pressure can be entertaining, even though it is a disadvantage.
Stack your UAVs
Warzone’s unmanned aerial vehicles are still a powerful tool for players, even as many hide themselves from scanners. UAVs can track enemy squads and let you know where they are.
A UAV squad can stack up to three simultaneously – you’ll be surprised how much detail will be delivered if three UAVs are used simultaneously. This map shows enemies’ locations and direction in real-time, unlike other maps. It might be worth your time if you’ve completed a few contracts, as it will give you some insight into positions and tactics.
Watch for flares
Two types of signal flare are fired from Warzone for nearby players to see. As those on the left take control of a Recon contract, white flares are thrown, while those on the right purchase red flares.
The map often shows players waiting for captured squadmates and teams camped at capture points.
Vary where you drop
In World of Warcraft, there are certain locations on the map that are so rewarding and loot-filled that you keep returning to them all the time because they are so rewarding. It will help you improve and learn the map more quickly if you switch drop points and go to a lot of locations occasionally. Additionally, your play session rhythm will change, which is also a positive development.
Beware the gas mask
As the endgame of a match approaches, one popular and powerful tactic is to pick off fleeing targets as the gas ring closes, remaining just ahead of it yourself. The gas mask is the only thing you need, and you should be aware that its on-off animations will greatly distract you.
Watch out for in-match events
Globally, there were complaints about the size of Season 4 (and not Season 4, sigh). Season 4 features several new in-match events. Three types of events can interrupt a match at random:
Upon dying or gaining an advantage in combat, a player will respawn by air drop.
Many items at Buy Stations will be marked down during the 60-second Fire Sale, and squadmates who have fallen will be available for free to be purchased back.
Helicopters will patrol the map. In their destruction, rare loot is dropped, including three UAVS, two armour boxes, munitions boxes, gas masks and grenade launchers, as well as money.
If these events occur in a match, adjust your tactics and watch the skies!
Don’t lose hope
Despite its trite nature, we mean it sincerely. Whatever your record is, you’ll eventually win, regardless of how long you’ve been playing since your last win. When you make smart decisions and play sensibly, you’ll find success. It was a farcical victory – we hadn’t won in a week or two. After an anxious two minutes of waiting in the Gulag, our team left without running into anyone. We dropped near the final circle for five minutes without a gun, hid, and snuck in, killing the last player.
After one kill, some tension, and a little luck, we are back on top. Warzone is a game of skill mixed with a lot of luck, so you can’t feel disheartened if you’re having a bad run.
