Kingslayer mode is making a return in Warzone's November playlists, but what is it exactly?

Yesterday, Raven Software revealed the Warzone playlists for the month of November. While some familiar favourites, like Iron Trials '84, will be making an appearance, the week of Nov. 11 sees the return of Kingslayer. Since it's only been previously available for brief periods at a time, those who haven't played it before might be looking at its listing and wondering what it is.

Below, we'll break down how Kingslayer mode works in Warzone and what you'll need to do in order to win.

What is Kingslayer Mode in Call of Duty Warzone?

Kingslayer mode is a great option for those who just want to drop in and get kills. The number of players is reduced down to 50, and you'll find yourself placed in a team of three. The goal here is to be the first team to rack up 100 kills. There's no Gulag, and infinite lives - if you get killed, get straight back up and exact your revenge.

Players will be placed within a small circle which moves around the map. You'll need to stay inside the circle as you play. A little extra feature exists in this mode; the top five teams will be marked on everyone's map, so there'll be no hiding happening here.

How to Win Kingslayer Mode in Call of Duty Warzone

While the goal in Kingslayer mode is pretty clear, the conditions make for a bit of chaos. So how do you stay on top? A good first tactic is to try and rack up as many kills as possible in a short time. This will likely put you in the top five, and therefore marked on the map. If you're savvy, you'll be able to use it to your advantage and keep building on those kills.

Alternatively, you can use the top five as a way to climb the ladder. Focus on who you can see on the map and start hunting. Coordinate with your team and you'll quickly be a force to be reckoned with.

Kingslayer mode is set to appear in the week of Nov. 11, in Call of Duty: Warzone. This will be the only week it'll appear in November, so be sure to check this mode out before it disappears again.
