Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 is set to drop on Feb. 15, and major changes to the Gulag, looting, and Buy Stations are coming to the Battle Royale.

Infinity Ward and Raven Software released a preview of the updates coming in Season 2 of Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. Many of the changes directly address players' feedback and look to improve the quality of gameplay on Al Mazrah.

Here's a preview of the three biggest changes coming to Warzone 2 Season 2.

3 Biggest Changes in Warzone 2 Season 2

1. Gulag

One of the biggest critiques of Warzone 2 is the 2v2 Gulag format. Players are paired with a random partner and must work together to win the Gulag and return to the match.

Season 2 will bring back the 1v1 Gulag. Although the existing Gulag will remain, the developers have made some alterations to the environment to better support 1v1 combat. The Domination-style flag will also return to determine overtime victories.

Players can expect to spawn in with a greater variety of loadouts, including Assault Rifles, Submachine Guns, and Light Machine Guns. Those who win their Gulag will leave with a larger cash reward.

2. Looting

Warzone 2's changes to looting disgruntled many players. Players have to sift through the Backpack of an enemy to loot them once they are killed, and then transfer the items into their own Backpack.

The upcoming update will now allow loot to fall onto the ground once an enemy is killed. Floating loot will also drop out of all containers in Al Mazrah so players no longer have to deal with loot menus. Lastly, all players will have the same Backpack size.

Looting will look much more like the system in the original Warzone. Players will be able to loot faster and get back into the action more efficiently.

3. Buy Stations

Buy Stations spawn in different locations during each match on Al Mazrah. The random spawns hinder gameplay and create unpredictable, sometimes impossible, circumstances to use a Buy Station.

Thankfully, spawns for Buy Stations will be static across the map in Season 2. All stations will also have unlimited stock of Loadout Drop Markers. The prices of Primary Weapons at Buy Stations will now be more affordable as well.

These big changes aim to inspire a more balanced, efficient gameplay in Warzone 2 Season 2.
