CoD: Warzone Tips and Tricks That You Need To Know
Things you need to know to succeed in CoD: Warzone.
Call of Duty: Warzone is arguably the best Battle Royale game on the market (sorry Fortnight and Apex). Over 15 million players jumped in over the first 48 hours.
If you are a Battle Royale veteran you will not only want to know what to do in Warzone, but also what is different from your current favourite game.
How CoD: Warzone is different from Fortnite, Apex Legends and PUBG
- There are killstreaks. These are important as they allow you access to things like attack helicopters, airstrikes and other powerful bonuses.
- There are pre-made builds in-game that will fully kit you out.
- Most loot comes from chests. This is like Fortnite.
- You can complete in-game quests to boost your cash or loot.
- Weapon attachments aren't part of the loot.
- You land with a pistol. You'll need to find a better weapon, but at least you are armed.
- Kills in the pre-game lobby count as permanent XP on that weapon. Don't waste that time.
- You can drop loadouts for underleveled teammates boosting their ability to contribute to your squad.
- Weapon colour is only a measure of how many attachments the weapon has, not of its hitting power.
- Landing in an unpopulated area gives you uncontested loot and a chance to gear up without much combat. Landing in the high population areas is great, but risky.
- Self Revive, Armor Plates and UAV are the best items to purchase at the buy station.
- Don't buy Loadout Drops. You get a free one with 12 seconds left in the first circle, every single game.
- Cut your chute to drop quickly and get to the ground first. Remember to pop it again just before you land.
- Your parachute is reusable. Pop it when jumping from a helicopter, off a roof, etc. to quickly travel.
- You can revive.
- When you die you go to the Gulag. Win a 1 v 1 fight and come back to the game (once per match)
- You can buy a self-revive.
- Your team can revive you.
- Spend your money. It's gone if you die and revive.
- Self-revive is $4,500 and a priority.
- The gas will kill you quickly. Don't plan to stand in it at all.
- Items are colour coded based on rarity.
- Kills and XP in the pre-game warmup carry over to the game.
- Early contracts are usually safe to complete. Later on, avoid them.
- In-game stores are marked with a shopping cart on your map.
- You can shoot people as you drop from the plane. Just cut your parachute and fire away. Remember to open your parachute again or you will plummet to your death.
- Ping, ping, ping. Loot, cash, locations. Communication is important.
- Use Armor. Remember you need to equip it. It doesn't go on automatically.
- Only engage if you have the advantage. Seems like common sense, but don't take a bad fight.
- High ground is important.
- Aggressive play is rewarded. It usually easier to flank and attack enemies than to hold a position.
- You can rappel up and down elevator shafts
- Know the map. Play, play, play until you know the little idiosyncracies of the map.
- Play according to the loot you have. If you looted a SMG then firing long-range is senseless, likewise, your sniper rifle up close isn't especially useful.
- The circle closes faster than in other Battle Royale games and is deadlier.
- Loadout drops are very important.
- Buying loadouts can make all the difference as they give you the gear you want instead of random gear.
- Do contracts whenever you can.
- Share your resources with your teammates.
- If two of your team are in the Gulag you can watch your teammate's fight and help them by calling out the enemy.
- Use Buy Stations, but know that they are also bait. Many players camp them.
