Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 has a new Playlist for the week of Jan. 18. Here's what fans can expect from the update.

Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 both receive regular updates that typically introduce or bring back modes for players to explore. With player count rapidly decreasing for Warzone 2, Playlist updates are a great opportunity to entice players to return to the Battle Royale.

Unfortunately, this week's Playlist update does not contain any new content.

Warzone 2 Playlist Update: Jan.18

As announced by Raven Software, Warzone 2 players can expect the following modes in the latest Playlist update:

  • Mini-Royale Trios
  • Battle Royale (Quads, Trios, Duos, and Solos)

Mini-Royale is the perfect mode for players who wish for more action and faster gameplay. Instead of 150 players, only 54 players spawn into Al Mazrah, where half the map is already covered by gas. Fighting comes much earlier, and players no longer need to worry about cross-map rotates. The mode is only available to play in trios.

Battle Royale is the standard mode for Warzone 2. Players can spawn in solo, or with up to three teammates. The lobby consists of 150 players who will drop, loot, and fight in a shrinking area until only one team remains. Players who die can regain their freedom by either winning a gulag or being bought back by their team.
