Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 – In-game support and questions

The Gulag is a player’s chance at self-redemption. Once the player dies within the main Warzone map “Al Mazrah” they will be placed in a final 2V2 battle arena. The player will only get to experience the Gulag once per game, and there are no second chances.

In this battle arena, players are given a random weapon and are forced to face off to death. The winning team will respawn within “Al Mazrah,” whereas the losers (dead) will return to the lobby or wait for a friend to bring them back.

Many weapons can be found within random locations around the map: on the floor, inside loot crates (rare ones included), near task objectives, by killing enemy players, and by buying weapons from the shop with in-game cash.

Players can also ‘buy’ weapon loadouts that they created in the lobby. Halfway through the match, “loadout drops” will be highlighted for the player to see in yellow, and there are several around the map.

You can equip Battle Pass items by selecting them within the Warzone 2.0 pre-game lobby menus, be it the Operator menu (for operators) or the Gamesmith menu (for weapon blueprints).

The game is a Battle Royale. To win, all enemies must be eliminated: you or your teammate(s) must be the last ones standing (alive).

Yes, all Warzone 2.0 progress is transferred to the main game.

CoD: Warzone 2.0 / Modern Warfare II troubleshooting:

This common issue has a straightforward fix: if you purchased the game on or Steam, you can repair the game’s files.

Steam users: Find Modern Warfare II in your Game Library, right-click on it, click Properties, go to the Local Files tab, then press “Verify the integrity of game files.” users: Select Modern Warfare II in your Game Library. Next to the “Play” button, you will see a Settings cog; click that, then select “Verify files.”

Ensure that your graphics drivers are up-to-date (failing which, you must update them). If that doesn’t work, look through the in-game Graphics settings and make sure you aren’t trying to run the game at settings higher than your system can handle.

Before heading into a match, ensure you run shader optimization. If you decide to enter a game before doing so, you will experience GFX issues.

Modern Warfare II is currently experiencing extremely heavy loads of connection activity, and disruptions are to be expected up until after the 2022 Christmas season.

If you are experiencing terrible connection issues but nobody else is, try restarting your router and reconnecting it to your console/PC. If you use a wireless connection, perhaps consider plugging your computer or console to the router directly.
