Warzone Playlist Update: Game Modes Explained

Some of the game modes in Warzone are only available for a limited time and will then be removed to return at a later point in the season or even the next season. To make sure you know every game mode, we will explain the more exotic game modes and especially the time limited ones. Let's go!

What is Warzone Resurgence?

Resurgence is mostly played on Rebirth Island and is one of the most action packed modes in Warzone. There is no Gulag but players can respawn, as long as one of their squadmates is still alive. If you die you have to wait for a Rebirth Countdown to deplete. That countdown shortens every time your teammates make a kill or complete a contract. All of this makes Resurgence a really fast-paced experience that feels much more like Team Deathmatch than Battle Royale.

What is Warzone Mini Royale?

Mini Royale is exactly what it sounds like – Battle Royale but smaller. Basically you only experience the first 5 and the last 10 minutes of a normal BR match. Mini Royale is limited to 78 players, can only be played in Trios, has a smaller starting area, faster closing circles, and the Gulag is closed after the first 5 minutes of the match – awhole match of MIni Royale will only last about 15 minutes. All in all this game mode means faster deployment, constant movement, and way more action than usual.

What is Warzone Plunder?

In Plunder everything revolves around money! Get as much cash as you can and extract it. In this game mode players start with their own premade loadouts and can respawn as much as they want. One match of Plunder takes 30 minutes and teams have to collect 1 million in cash. If no team is able to reach the 1 million mark, the team with the most cash automatically wins. Should one team reach 1 million before the end of the match, there will be 3 minutes of Overtime. During those 3 minutes all teams get a 1,5 multiplier to give other teams a chance to catch up. After the Overtime ends, the team with the most cash wins.

What is Warzone Clash?

Clash is the Team Deathmatch of Warzone. It is a huge 50v50-Deathmatch mode played on specific parts of the Warzone Map (eg. the Port area or Downtown). Players drop in with their loadouts and can respawn indefinitely. The first team to reach 500 points wins the match. Apart from racking up kills, players can also complete contracts and collect powerups from defeated enemies.

What is Warzone Iron Trials?

Iron Trials is one of the more interesting modes in Warzone. It basically is BR for sweats. It follows the same rules as the normal Battle Royale mode but makes some important changes. All players base health is increased from 100 to 250, there are no free loadouts, round timers are decreased by 12%, only ATVs and Dirt Bikes available, much higer prices at Buy Stations, and health regen takes much longer and sets in after 7 not 5 seconds. There also are some changes for equipement and weapons. For example sniper rifles can only down enemies with one shot if they are within 30 meters and the stun effect duration of stun grenades is reduced by 50%. All in all Iron Trials is a harder and way more sweaty version of the normal Battle Royale.

What is Warzone Payload?

Payload is a mode you probably know from other games like Overwatch. Ther are two teams of 20 players each. The attacking team has to escort a truck convoy to its final destination, while the defending team has to prevent that from happening. Players drop in with their loadouts and can respawn indefinitely. The trucks only move as long as at least one player is inside the escort perimeter. Throughout the map there will be checkpoints and defenders can only push back the convoy to the last checkpoint. That's basically all there is to say about Payload.

What is Warzone Scopes & Scatterguns?

Scopes and Scatterguns is kind of similar to Resurgence. You also can spawn indefinitelyas long as your teammates are alive but there won't be any free loadouts and the loot is limited to only sniper rifles, crossbows, and shotguns. Oh, you also can't buy loadouts at a Buy Station... The starting weapon right now is the Marshal – a mix between a pistol and a shotgun. So better get used to quick-scoping or some good old run-and-gun shotgun play.
