Warzone is one of the few battle royales that provide players with multiple chances to come back from the dead. After dying for the first time in a match, players are dispatched to the Gulag. There they have to win the 1v1 to earn redeployment. If they don’t, their teammates can buy them back for $4500 worth of in-game money anyway. The same can be repeated throughout the round, as long as teammates have enough cash and access to a Buy Station.

However, that $4500 can instead be used to buy valuable gear and utilities to enhance chances for a Warzone victory. This is why ZooMaa has some tips to help improve your skills and slay your Gulag adversary.

1. Be aggressive- Most opponents have a slow and passive approach. They tend to hold the corners. Playing fast and aggressive could startle them and catch them off guard.

2. Aim Down Sight or Hip Fire- Knowing when to ADS or Hip Fire is a crucial aspect of Gulag gameplay. If you’re unaware of your enemy’s location and if they manage to catch you off guard, hip firing is the way to go. It allows you to transfer your aim swiftly. On the other hand, if you’re aware of your enemy’s movement and expecting him to emerge out of a particular cover/corner, ADS is the preferable option.

3. Move around the map- The idea is to confuse or keep the opponent predicting your moves rather than holding the same position. Being dynamic is always better than being static.

4. Use tactical utilities- When you have a stun or flash grenade, or a C4, throw them at the adversary and use it to your advantage.

6. Spray paint opponents- Using this feature makes your rival more noticeable. It enables you to spot them more efficiently, giving you a slight advantage.
