Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 grants players a second chance at victory with its randomized Jailbreak feature.

Although Warzone 2 introduced a new map, loadout system, and Gulag, the popular BR game can still enforce a Jailbreak to redeploy dead players into Al Mazrah. When a Jailbreak occurs, all downed players are brought back into the match without winning a Gulag, as long as they are actively spectating. The lucky players get to return to their squad for free.

Here is when players can expect a Jailbreak to occur in Warzone 2.

When Does Jailbreak Happen in Warzone 2?

Like the previous title, Warzone 2 Jailbreaks are random. They do not happen every game, and there is no way for players to know if one is coming later in their match. Typically, Jailbreaks occur late-game during the third or fourth circle. Any dead players still spectating will be redeployed back into the action.

Right before a Jailbreak happens, players will see a yellow banner on their screen that says, "Jailbreak Imminent. All Operators will redeploy." The second chance feature allows dead players to get ready to rejoin the fight as a countdown begins. Players still in the game either await their fallen teammates or turn to the sky for some free kills.

As the countdown hits zero, the Jailbreak turns active, and dead players are greeted by a blue banner that says, "Redeploying. All Operators redeployed to the AO." Operators can then jump from a plane and re-enter the game.

With victories becoming even more difficult to obtain thanks to the Warzone 2 meta, Jailbreaks are a great way for players to try their luck once more.
