Lots of new, lots of old

After about five hours of information, gameplay and trailers, the CoD Next event came to an end and left a community in awe. In addition to Modern Warfare II, Warzone successor Warzone 2.0 was also revealed. We put together all the important information about Warzone 2.0 for you and tell you why the community is still not sure what to think of the new battle royale shooter.

This article deals only with Warzone 2.0 for those looking for CoD Next news about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Here find it.

That showed

one universe

As made clear at the beginning of the presentation, Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0 not only appear at the same time, but also share a universe in many respects. Weapons, gameplay and maps are mostly identical in both titles. New swim and swing move options will also play a role in Warzone 2.0.

Even though MWII will be released on October 28th and will have to wait until November 16th for Warzone 2.0, both games share a Battle Pass. If we level this in Modern Warfare II, the progress will also increase in Warzone 2.0 at the same time. The main focus of the developers was to combine both games as well as possible without creating the same game in the end.

The map

On the new Battle Royale map there will be strong (strong) AI opponents guarding, which promises particularly good loot. However, in order not to go beyond the scope of this article, we wrote a separate article about the new map Warzone 2.0, which you can find here.

the cars

Unlike in Warzone, the car in Warzone 2.0 will consume fuel in the future. So if the area is breathing down your neck again and you were counting on driving somewhere quickly by car, you’d better check the fuel gauge beforehand.

Damage models have also been improved. In the future, it will be possible to destroy the tires of jeeps, ATVs, etc. If you ran out of gas or an opponent shot your new summer tires, you should quickly go to a gas station where you can refuel and repair your car.


Weapon forging will be the same in both games. Weapon level progression will be linked in MWII and Warzone 2.0. Detailed information about the Weaponsmith can be found here.

play area

A great and interesting innovation concerns the security area. While it is still quite traditional in Warzone a circles where you could move without taking damage from gas, this mechanic is broken and changed in Warzone 2.0.

In the future there will be up to three separate circles. These separate circles become smaller and smaller over time, eventually merging back into a single circle.

New Gulag

We also have to adapt to some changes in the Gulag, so the classic 1 vs 1 is probably a thing of the past. You can find a detailed article about this here.

DMZ mode confirmed

What started with a leak has now been officially confirmed. Warzone 2.0 will get an extraction mode that will be called DMZ. This is a sandbox mode where players can choose when they finish their turn. If you are thinking of escaping from Tarkov, you are not completely wrong. In fact, the new mode is said to be similar to the very popular shooter. Whether the mode will already be available for the November 16th release remains open, but we also play in DMZ mode on parts of the new Al Mazrah map.

chat with perspective

Like Modern Warfare II, Warzone 2.0 will also get a third-person perspective, as known in battle royale games like Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG). In addition, Warzone 2.0 will have a “always on chat proximity“characteristics. Your microphone will be activated all the time, so that both friends and enemies can hear you. So you should pay close attention to whether and what you say, your opponents may be closer than you think.

Goodbye loadouts?

As it seems at the moment, it will be in Warzone 2.0 no shipment and drop to give In the future, we will only be able to buy individual weapons, equipment and teammates in the Buy station. Fully created loadouts like now in Warzone is probably a thing of the past. However, Activision left a back door on us that says that the loadouts will not be available during the CoD Next event but may be reintroduced in the future.

Share echo

While the Modern Warfare II demo was received very positively by large sections of the community, Warzone 2.0 generated a rather divided response. Many people are bothered by the changes which they think are too big compared to Warzone. The lack of loadouts, the changing Gulag or the abolition of “cancel slides” are just some of the biggest criticisms of the community.

For some Warzone veterans, the changes go too far. TheGhostOfHope, whose leaks for Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0 turned out to be almost entirely correct, also spoke to Warzone Guru JGOD and denounced the game change in Warzone 2.0.

After all, it is still a beta at the moment and none of the actual gameplay elements are final. Hopefully the developers will listen to the community feedback and make some more improvements to Warzone 2.0.
