Stimulus Trios Warzone is the newest game mode to grace the ever-changing list that is the Call of Duty rotating, weekly playlist. Gone is the immense and sometimes chaotic BR 200-man Quads mode which pushed the limits of the servers and made it feel that even the most remote drop spots were uncomfortably inhabited. In its place we see the return of the standard Quads mode, as well as the introduction of the new Stimulus Trios playlist.
Infinity Ward took to Twitter yesterday to share the news and create the hype which is sure to shake up the Warzone landscape significantly. If you are wondering what Stimulus Trios entails, you might remember a playlist update back in May that added Stimulus Solos to the mix. Solos might be overlooked by many players who are accustomed to partying up and dropping with teammates all of the time, so if you missed it it's understandable.
Stimulus Trios Warzone: What is it?
The new game mode forgoes the now iconic Gulag (which is sure to find itself as one of the most cross-culturally spoken words of all time this year) to an automatic-redeploy system in which players will respawn after being eliminated as long as they have $4,500 cash in their inventory. Players actually begin with the necessary money to respawn, and this creates a new layer of strategy as you can choose to hold onto that money in the beginning, or pool it together to buy UAVs or a loadout drop to survive the first few moments of the match.
The new Stimulus Trios mode is sure to create some tense moments, intense teamwork and planning in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - Warzone. With season 5 a few weeks away and plenty of rumors and leaks to go with it, it's nice to see the devs throw a wrench into the potential ways the Battle Royale genre is played.
