Call of Duty: Warzone is a free-to-play game released by Activision as part of the Call of Duty series. Call of Duty: Warzone is a battle-royale game, the second such game released under Call of Duty after Black Ops 4.
The game is available on Windows and console platforms to play. The developer also announced a mobile version of the game, with the release date yet to be announced. However, speculations are that the mobile version will be launched sometime in 2022.
The game has already been a massive success for the franchise, with the revenue crossing the $30 billion milestone with over 125 million game users.
Call of Duty: Warzone is a bit different from the previous installment of the franchise Black Ops 4, with more focus on collecting the in-game cash than the heavy reliance players had on the gadgets.
There are two primary game modes: Battle Royale and Plunder, for the players to enjoy. This game supports over 150 players simultaneously, with some limited-time modes reaching 200 players in a round.

Call of Duty: Warzone Modes
|Battle Royale||The battle royale mode in Call of Duty: Warzone is similar to every other battle royale game. To become the last ones standing, players fight as a team.|
The player that makes it through to the end is the winner, and so is their team (in the team mode). This mode allows solo play, a three-player squad, and a four-player Quad team.
However, there is one massive difference between Call of Duty: Warzone battle royale and other battle royale modes – the Gulag, which allows players to come back when they are downed.
|Buy Back||This mode was initially known as the Stimulus and has been a recurring part of the Battle Royale segment in Call of Duty: Warzone. This variant of Battle Royale lacks the Gulag feature, which makes it more similar to other Battle Royale games. |
An interesting thing is that the teams can ‘Buy Back’ their fallen members by $4,000. For $4,500, there is a chance to automatically redeploy the solo players.
|Scopes and Scatter Gun||It is a limited-time variant in the Battle Royale mode, available in the month of April 2020. The game mode made a return for October 2021. Here, the players have the privilege of using only Snipers and Shotguns. The loadouts are disabled. The last player surviving wins the round.|
|200 Quads||Another limited-time variant in the Battle Royale mode was available for the month of June 2020. Unlike the standard Battle royale game, the 200 Quads, as the name suggests, handles 200 players in a round, divided into teams of four members.|
|Realism||This feature is a limited-time variant of Battle Royale, available between June 19 to June 23, 2020. The mode lacks most of the helpful indicators players find on their display screen. |
The aim is to make the round as realistic as possible. There is no mini-map, health bars, ammo, and equipment indicators. The headshot damage in this mode is also more effective.
|Vanguard||The operators and weapons in the mode are sourced from Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 1. The mode is pretty similar to any Battle Royale mode, with the addition of Fighter Planes and Anti-aircraft guns added to make it more than just an FPS round.|
|Plunder||Plunder is the second gameplay mode in Call of Duty: Warzone, with the objective of players collecting as much cash as possible within a limited time. The time limit in Plunder is 30 minutes, with teams competing with each other to reach that one million mark. |
The combatants can open Supply Boxes, complete contracts, and eliminate other players; the latter does reward them with a portion of the winnings by the eliminated player. Cash Drops also appear on the map containing a hundred thousand dollars.
|Blood Money||Plunder also has many variants that players can enjoy, and Blood Money is one such among them. In Blood Money, the player can collect money after eliminating other combatants from the match, even if the said combatant does not have any winnings. |
Completing contracts and taking out players with finishing moves is also helpful in collecting more cash.
|Resurgence||Players start with a self-revive kit in the round to keep their teammates alive before the timer runs out. The round takes place on the Rebirth Island map. Downing other players also help in the faster redeployment of teammates.|
|Extreme||Extreme is a limited-time variant of Resurgence and was available for play between February 25 and March 4, 2021. Unlike the standard Resurgence match, the mode supported 99 players in the round. This variant made a comeback in June 2022, but with the support of only 60 players per round.|
|Mini||A limited-time variant of Resurgence. The gameplay takes place on the Verdansk and only supports 45 players. The Mini variant was available from June 17 to June 24.|
|Vanguard Resurgence||The combat takes place in a small portion of the Caldera map with 45 players in the foray. The mode, as evident by the name, features elements from Call of Duty: Vanguard, mainly weapons and operators.|
|Verdansk||The first released map in Call of Duty: Warzone. This map can support 200 players in a round, depending on the chosen game mode. The western part of the map has a train track, with a tunnel added near the Hospital in Season 4. An underground metro system is also added in Season 6.|
A nighttime variant of this map is also available under the name Verdansk ’84.
|Rebirth Island||The map here is a remake of Alcatraz of the Blackout map from Black Ops 4. This map supports 99 players and has a Gulag on the map. A nighttime playable map version was available during the special event – Destruction of Verdansk.|
|Caldera||This map is based on an island, with a Factory as the focus of attention. The Factory is also guarded by NPCs which will attack any player that comes near the location. The maps have thirteen hatches, seven open, all leading to research labs, which again are guarded by NPCs.|
|Fortune’s Keep||It is a Resurgence exclusive map based on an island in the Adriatic Sea. It was released along with the launch of Season 4 of Call of Duty: Vanguard.|
