Call of Duty is primarily known as a series with a proper storyline, along with its multiplayer function. However, the latest instalment in the franchise, Call of Duty: Warzone, solely focuses on multiplayer.
Warzone features three game modes: Battle Royale, Battle Royale Solos and Plunder. Battle royale is inspired by games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Meanwhile, “plunder” is related to the in-game currency mechanic and is unique to Warzone.
Call of Duty: Warzone has reduced dependence on equipped gadgets and encourages farming of in-game currency called Cash. The game can also host up to 150 players in a single match. This is way more than other battle royale that hosts a maximum of 100 players.
Each match will consist of 150 players who are put in squads of three. However, they can also go down the lone wolf route and solo it. Players will jump out of a plane and land somewhere on the huge map of Verdansk armed with only a handgun. Once on the ground, they will have to begin searching for weapons to fight off the rest of the players in the match.
In most battle royale games, players who are killed are eliminated from the match, but that’s not the case with Warzone. Once a player is downed, they’ll find themselves in a gulag. Here they’ll have to do a one vs. one match against another player to see who will have a second chance in the match. Those who lose will have to wait for their squadmates to purchase a redeployment for them. Solo mode players, on the other hand, will not be able to rejoin the match if they lose in the Gulag.
Plunder is a second mode included in Warzone. Unlike battle royale, the objective in Plunder is to obtain the most money. Squads will have to work together to find the most cash, whether it’s done by completing contracts or taking out other players. Buy stations in Plunder will have additional items for purchase that will help secure some funds as the match progresses.
