With solo, trio, and quad squad configurations obtainable, it was getting slightly bizarre that Call of Duty: Warzone didn’t permit groups of two into Verdansk. But as has been strongly hinted in datamines, duos mode has been deliberate for a while, and now it’s lastly arrived.
The mode does precisely what it says on the field – there’s now a mode for groups of two gamers in Warzone, which doubtlessly makes organising a co-op night time a bit simpler than in the event you wanted three or 4 complete gamers. Duos mode maintains all the principles of regular Warzone: there’s nonetheless the journey to the gulag to take care of if a crew member bleeds out earlier than somebody can revive them, and the final duo with a surviving member wins the match.
But as Activision factors out within the Mode Recon blog post saying the arrival of duos, the two-player mode does demand some shifts in the way you strategy a match, notably from the squad function assignments perspective. “Assault rifle-sniper builds are nice, but when neither of you has a solution for autos or a close-range battle with a shotgun, you could be in bother,” the put up says.
That’s actually true, as is the recommendation to keep away from getting dragged to the gulag in any respect prices. It’s not that the gulag itself is extra harmful in duos, however slightly that the survival prospects of your teammate in 2v1 conditions is on common pretty horrible.

Activision additionally encourages duos gamers to give attention to communication by making a redoubled effort to name out loot areas, enemies, and goals. The put up additionally recommends bringing alongside the Overkill perk, which helps you to convey two main weapons down in a loadout drop.
“Winning a Duos match requires a bit extra particular person talent from every squad member than a Trios or Quads sport,” Activision advises. “Practice your gunskill in Solos or in Modern Warfare multiplayer, and in case your Duo isn’t pulling weight, you will have to sub them out… Just bear in mind, it’s nothing private.”
