Confused about the NPC enemies? Check out our guide on what are the AQ Soldier Kills in COD Warzone 2.

COD Warzone 2.0 is finally here with a plethora of new gameplay mechanics. As you drop down to Al Mazrah for the battle royale, you will face several AQ soldiers. You will encounter these enemies while playing Warzone 2 or the DMZ mode. While killing them offers AQ kills, it isn’t much explained in-game about how it all works out. Not to worry, check out our guide on what are the AQ Soldier Kills in Warzone 2.

What are the AQ Soldier Kills in Warzone 2?

The AQ Soldier kills are the kills you get for defeating the AQ soldiers across different modes around the Al Mazrah map in Warzone 2. These game modes include the Battle Royale Solos, Duos, Trios, Quads, and the DMZ mode in Warzone 2.0. The AQ soldiers are the NPCs that you will encounter throughout the map. But compared to other game modes, you will encounter them more in the DMZ mode. You can see the total number of AQ kills at the end of the match on your scoreboard.

However, some players are seeing more AQ kills without even killing any of these NPCs. This might be because of a bug or an error. We will update this guide as soon as we get word or if Infinity Ward acknowledges this bug.

Who are the AQ Soldiers in COD

As mentioned earlier AQ soldiers are the AI-generated NPCs that spawn throughout the map. Their abbreviation represents the Al Qatala terrorist organization that served as the main antagonist faction or group in Modern Warfare 2. So, it was quite natural for them to make an appearance in COD Warzone 2.0. If you are playing the usual modes, they will mainly spawn at the Gulag, Black Sites & Strongholds. While these NPC enemies are pretty easy to defeat, some of them are heavily armored. So, we suggest avoiding large hordes of AQ Soldiers solo.

When you clear out all the AQ soldiers in a Stronghold, you unlock the Custom Loadout. If you are the first team to clear them out, you also get a key to Black Site. Furthermore, clearing out all the AQ Soldiers in Black Site rewards you with Legendary items and a weapon blueprint. But you can use it only during the match. So, killing AQ soldiers and getting these kills does have its advantages.
