  • Summary: Welcome to Warzone – a new combat experience where up to 150 players take the role of a veteran Tier 1 Operator and drop in to the dense and sprawling world of Verdansk. Warzone is packed with non-stop action that’s free-to-play and free-for-everyone. You do not need to own the full versionWelcome to Warzone – a new combat experience where up to 150 players take the role of a veteran Tier 1 Operator and drop in to the dense and sprawling world of Verdansk. Warzone is packed with non-stop action that’s free-to-play and free-for-everyone. You do not need to own the full version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to download, play and enjoy Warzone. In Battle Royale, fight to be the last squad standing while escaping the deadly gas in the swiftly closing circle with up to 150 players. In Plunder, the race is on to collect the most in-match Cash by looting across the map, taking down enemies to steal their Cash, and completing in-match Contracts. Warzone takes place in Verdansk, an expansive city with multiple named zones and well over 300 points of interest. Each zone features distinct landmarks like the Gorengard Lumber Yard or the Gora Dam; the zones take place across different environment types like cities and rural areas for unique engagements. Change up your drop location in each match to get a better lay of the land and take advantage of what Verdansk has to offer. If you need to get somewhere fast in Warzone, the best method is a vehicle. There are five vehicles all with varying levels of protection, speed, seating, and off-roading capability. Each vehicle has a health meter and when it reaches zero, the vehicle explodes and flames out. Needlessly to say, if the health of your vehicle is depleting, bail out before the impending explosion.

    A brilliant battle royale that in many ways copies its competitors but also brings great ideas of its own and doesn’t let you catch your breath for a second. Its connection with the regular Modern Warfare multiplayer mode is just the icing on the cake.

    It’s a Call of Duty battle royale which uses the franchise’s DNA better than ever before. From the first match onward it just feels like home. [05/2020, p.46]

    Activision wisely used his second chance at providing Call of Duty Battle Royale game. Besides great gunplay, players are offered with some pretty interesting innovations in the genre, such as mini objectives and fighting for a chance to get back in the Gulag.

    Call of Duty: Warzone reaches new heights in battle royale by ditching backpacks and throwing me in a Gulag.

    Derivative and at times off-puttingly insistent and flimsy unlocks, it's nonetheless some of Infinity Ward's most considered design in years, and a sign it's ready to get back in the fight. [Issue#346, p.102]

    Warzone is, like its skull-masked, kevlar-tucking “operators”, entirely solid. It bloody well should be, given its pedigree. But there is remarkably little interesting here – aside from flourishes like the sinister gulag section – to command our attention. It’s not particularly beautiful, and makes up for that with enormity. Sure, this is a CoD game we’re talking about, so fantastical theme park aesthetics were never an option, but nevertheless there’s a lack of character here that is in no short supply in other games of this genre.

    If you call a game buggy and incomplete look to Warcraft 3 Reforged. In comparison this game seems polished.
    And for the poor performance whiners, I play on a 10 year old CPU with a high end GPU and playing with 60+fps. U must got a **** system lol.

    I used to adore this game and enjoyed it a lot but since the Vanguard integration, it went downhill. All of the guns I leveled up for twoI used to adore this game and enjoyed it a lot but since the Vanguard integration, it went downhill. All of the guns I leveled up for two years are completely useless, Activision is forcing the meta so that people only use Vanguard guns and boost the sales of Vanguard. This game has become a stupid cash grab. If you wanna play a good battle royale, stay away from this game, you'll get fried by zero recoil guns the second you drop in. utter trash Expand
