Warzone Trios Classic is the newest limited time playlist to appear in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Battle Royale game mode. The word “Classic” should be a dead giveaway to what you should expect when you drop into Verdansk, Kostovia with two other friends. So make sure you know what you’re getting into if you are looking to experience the raw formula of Battle Royale.

Warzone has been highly successful as a Battle Royale game, and that is undoubtedly thanks to its unique take on the tried and true formula. The game sports a Gulag where eliminated players can battle 1-v-1 for the chance to respawn, and teammates can buy back their companions indefinitely. Warzone’s cash system and side contracts and quests help it stand out from other Battle Royale games on the market, by introducing an in-game economy that must be managed by all players.

Warzone Trios Classic - No Gulag, No Buybacks

In the Warzone Trios Classic limited time mode (which may rotate to Solos and Quads in the future) you have one chance and one chance only to survive and claim victory. The game mode removes the Gulag, the cash system economy, cannot complete contracts, or buy loadouts. The lack of player tailored loadouts also means that the RNG spawn of weapons in Warzone will be prioritized over the recent meta of: Loot > Hunt > Buy Loadout > Switch to free loadout for perks. 

For now, players have the chance to enjoy the classic Battle Royale feel in the Call of Duty universe, which was first introduced with the Blackout game mode from last year's Black Ops 4. Just don’t expect to see the bold and borderline reckless gameplay decisions that are sometimes beneficial for a squad to make in normal Warzone in this new playlist update.
