That begs the question in players’ minds as to what’s new in the game and what are the differences between Warzone 2 and Warzone. Since you are here, the same question is bugging your mind. In this guide, we will show you all there is on this topic along with what carries over from Warzone. So if you want to prepare for what’s coming in the new battle royale shooter game, we recommend you check out this guide.
Warzone 2.0 VS Warzone Differences
As expected from sequels, there is no content on Warzone 2 and whether it is an improvement or not will be seen soon. Regardless, there are new maps, game modes, and others to look forward to. But before checking out what’s new, let’s see the differences between Warzone 2.0 & Warzone.
New Maps in Warzone 2.0
Warzone 2.0 will be introducing completely new maps along with small-sized maps for players who don’t have the time for long matches. While Warzone and Warzone 2.0 are going to feature different maps, for now, there is no saying when that will change. Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep are the short maps reported to be appearing in Warzone 2.
Gulag System in Warzone 2
The Gulag will now be played in a 2v2 battle from Warzone 2.0. While Warzone had a 1v1 system, a 2v2 battle to defeat the Jailer who has the key will determine the winner in Warzone 2. This is to make sure that it feels like an actual Prison and your partner will be a random player. Also, you will retain the loot you get in the Gulag.
What’s New in Warzone 2.0?
While we have seen certain differences between Warzone and Warzone 2.0, it is what is new in Warzone 2 that will pique the interest of the players.
Strongholds in Warzone 2
Strongholds will be introduced in Warzone 2.0 and they are AI-controlled locations found in Al Mazrah. You can choose to fight these enemies to get amazing loot or you can completely ignore them. The AI enemies won’t be chasing you around so unless you need weapons upgrades, you can simply leave them be.
Looting System Changes in Warzone 2.0
Now Warzone 2 will start featuring a new backpack system that brings changes to the Looting System. Upon death, the Primary Weapon of the player will be dropped on the ground along with their Backpack. This will allow you to loot the other content which will be accessed through a loot menu.
Loadout Changes in Warzone 2
While the situation of the loadout changes is not clear at the time of writing, we will update this once more information comes out on this subject. However, there is a possibility of differences in Warzone 2.0 and Warzone for the loadout drops.
Fights While Swimming in Warzone 2
You can now shoot underwater in Warzone 2. Given that it is only pistols, this is a big step in the right direction as players have a chance of defending themselves close to shore.
Underwater Mines in Warzone 2.0
Now that you can use pistols underwater, placing mines sounds like a great idea especially if you have created a stronghold of your own close to the shore. Along with that, mines are great way to ambush players.
DMZ Mode in Warzone 2.0
Warzone 2.0 is introducing a DMZ Mode that seems similar to Escape From Tarkov. If you are familiar with the game, you will have to finish a few missions and either get things done with the gun or socially. Along with that, you will also get to collect gear and place it in your inventory.
New Vehicles & Boats in Warzone 2
Warzone 2.0 is bringing quite the change with numerous different vehicles that can be customized. Certain vehicles will also need gas from time to time. With the huge map size of Al Mazrah, this sounds like a great way to increase competitiveness.
Additionally, you can shoot while driving and also climb on the top of the vehicle in order to shoot. While tires can be shot, they can also be repaired in the game.
Split Circles in Warzone 2
Warzone 2.0 has split circles which means, you will have the option to choose between three safe zones with the circles converging to one at the end.
That’s all there is on the difference between Warzone and Warzone 2.0 and what’s new in Warzone 2.0. While you are here, make sure you check out our Warzone guides for more content with Gamer Tweak.
