How To Play Warzone 2.0 In Split-Screen

Call of Duty is one of the few shooters that has a huge community on consoles – especially on PlayStation. Since consoles are usually hooked up to the TV in front of the couch somewhere in the living room, they're perfect for cozy co-op action. I mean, especially a game like Warzone 2.0, where team play as a squad against other teams is number one priority, would be perfect for co-op, right? But is that even possible? In the past, we could often play Zombies in split-screen with a buddy, but does Warzone 2.0 even have a split-screen mode?

How To Play Warzone 2.0 In Split-Screen?

Short and disappointing answer: Not at all! Warzone 2.0, just as Warzone 1, unfortunately doesn't offer an option to play with a buddy in split-screen. Why Warzone 2.0 of all games, a game built around playing with friends in squads, doesn't offer the option to play co-op on the same system is still a mystery to us.

Presumably, however, it's simply because of the game's immense size and the fact that split-screen has not been on the priority list of many developers for quite some time. By now, almost everyone has access to the internet and thus to extensive online features, so local split-screen modes are no longer a necessity.

Still, we would have liked to get an option to play Warzone 2.0 in split-screen. After all, the Call of Duty multiplayer has had a split-screen mode since Call of Duty 2, and it still works today in CoD: Vanguard and also Modern Warfare 2. Besides the multiplayer, almost all zombies modes in Call of Duty offered split-screen, even if that has strangely changed with Vanguard.

Will Warzone 2.0 Get Split-Screen In The Future?

If we take a look at other big Battle Royale games, you might actually get your hopes up. After all, Fortnite started without split-screen support, but added this option later on at the request of the community. So is there still a chance for split-screen in Warzone 2.0?

Unfortunately, probably not. That's mainly because Raven Software and Infinity Ward already have more than enough to do with supplying Warzone 2.0 with new content and balance patches. On top of that, we didn't get a split-screen mode for the entire duration of Warzone 1, and we haven't heard anything about it since the launch of Warzone 2.0 either. So split-screen doesn't seem to be a priority for the developers at all. However, if enough players want a split-screen mode and are vocal about it, they might change their mind, after all, loadout drops have been reintroduced as well:

How To Play Warzone 2.0 In Couch Co-Op

It may sound silly, but the only way to play in couch co-op is with two consoles and monitors. If you want to play Warzone 2.0 on the couch with a buddy, he/she needs to bring his/her console, and you need a second TV or monitor to connect it to. Then your buddy needs to connect to your internet, and you can play Warzone 2.0 online together on the couch.... Quite a cumbersome solution, but unfortunately the only one at the moment.

That's all there is to say about split screen in Warzone 2.0. If, contrary to expectations, Raven Software does indeed integrate the possibility of split screen gaming into Warzone 2.0, we will of course update this article.
