Gulag To Become 2v2 Mode In Warzone 2

The first bit of official Warzone 2.0 news has started trickling in, and one thing that really caught our eye was the mention of the new Gulag. It's going to be a 2v2 mode this time, and it's not as simple as a standard gunfight...

The Gulag. Love it or hate it, we all end up there eventually. When it first began it was a fantastic idea that borrowed from the popular Gunfight mode from Modern Warfare 2019. It was bare-bones and raw, exactly as it should have been for a prison fight.

But then they started to add new maps and new weapons. The maps weren't popular and as the weapons became more powerful it made the fight less interesting. So, we were hoping they would take it back to something simple and gritty again in Warzone 2, but instead they're complicating it even more. They're making it a 2v2 mode, and it even sounds like there's going to be an AI boss in the Gulag with you...

The New Gulag Will Be 2v2 In Warzone 2.0

In Call of Duty Next we were told that Warzone 2.0's new Gulag will be a 2v2 experience that includes a mysterious AI figure called "the Jailer". To be precise, here's exactly how the devs explained it to us:

Gulag 2.0, where players must battle it out via 2v2, loot for weapons and deal with “The Jailer,” for even more player options and surprises.

Looting weapons? AI bosses? I don't know about you, but that feels completely against the spirit of the Gulag to us. The 2v2 idea could have been fun if it was just that, but this sounds like too much. Although, we'll have to play it for ourselves when Warzone 2 is released to fairly review it.

The new Gulag is just one of many of the huge changes coming to Warzone 2...
