Call of Duty: Warzone Gameplay

Call of Duty Warzone is based on the concept of hunger games, also known as battle royale, where few people land on an island and fight with each other to survive at last.

The same is the case here, and COD Warzone pits up 150 players onto an island. They land with an equipped handgun and few bullets.

They loot and gather equipment from different houses and buildings and hunt for enemies. Just like PUBG and Fortnite, they also need to keep a consistent check on the safe zone as it keeps shrinking to get players closer to each other.

The game has many vehicles and trucks, and one thing we have not seen in other battle royale games is the helicopter.

You and your teammates can go anywhere on the island by helicopter. It can be found on different helipads across the map.

But make sure you are safe, as enemies could see it quickly and it catches the attraction of everyone.

Unlike other battle royale games, in COD Warzone, you get one more chance to get back in the game when you get killed.

When you die, you get to fight with a player using a handgun or other gun randomly equipped by the game.

If you win that 1v1, you directly get back into the game. Your teammates can also get back to you in the game by buying the card from the shop boxes available randomly on the map.

This is all we could tell you about the gameplay of the game. You will get to know it better once you start playing it.

Call of Duty Warzone Streamers

The well-known old PUBG and other game streamers such as Shroud, Lurn, and Chocotaco have started streaming the game.

We do not know if they will keep streaming the game in the long term, but for now, you can visit their Twitch profiles if you want to see the gameplay.
