Plunder is a variant on the Warzone Battle Royale game mode. Instead of the traditional king of hill style gameplay of traditional Warzone with limited respawn chances, shrinking map, and last man standing elements, Plunder’s objective in comparison is to collect as much money as you can.
In the Plunder game mode, players have unlimited respawns and the match is a race to the first team to collect and deposit $1 million. Once a team reaches this milestone a two minute sudden death is triggered, giving opposing teams a final push to collect as much money as they can from kills and contracts. As such the mode was very popular among gamers, gave easier chances for players to complete in-game side quests and discover easter eggs, level up weapons in a Warzone setting, and learn the ins and outs of Kastovia without needing to worry about the toxic gas.
Plunder fans who waited an extra week after the delay of Season 4 were then understandably upset when they updated their game only to find the game mode nowhere to be found. Infinity Ward has unfortunately caused confusion and consternation in fans who only primarily play Plunder.
Plunder Removed from Warzone in Season 4 - Devs Confirm Return
Fortunately, the devs at Infinity Ward have heard the player’s cries and responded. Joe Cecot, Co-Design Director of Multiplayer took to Twitter to alleviate fans’ fears and confirm the return of Plunder in the near future.
While no direct timeline was established, June 16 looks to be when players can get back to depositing bags of cash into helicopters. Tuesday is usually playlist update day, and seeing how Plunder was removed to make room for Warzone Rumble and Free Multiplayer Weekend - the former a mode that is sure to see a quick death after a strong consensus on how much it sucks - things should return to normal in a few days.
