Call of Duty: Warzone 2, the popular battle royale title, is all set to receive its Ranked Play mode. While the developers have not revealed much information, the mode is expected to arrive in Season 3 or beyond. In this article, we will look at everything we know so far about Warzone 2’s Ranked Play mode.
WARZONE 2’S RANKED PLAY MODE: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
What is Ranked Play mode in Call of Duty?
Ranked Play mode is a competitive game mode that allows players to compete with each other to reach higher skill tiers. The mode is popular among Call of Duty players, and it was first introduced in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. In the mode, players are placed in Skill Divisions, and they earn points based on their performance in matches. The points earned help them climb up the ranks and establish themselves as the best in the game.
When will Warzone 2 receive its Ranked Play mode?
According to official sources, Warzone 2’s Ranked Play mode is planned for Season 3 and beyond. The seasonal update will be available immediately after Season 2 Reloaded ends on April 12, 2023. While there has been no official statement about the mode’s arrival or what gameplay changes players can expect, it is likely that the mode will be released in Season 3 or, at most, Season 3 Reloaded.
What changes can players expect in Warzone 2’s Ranked Play mode?
Although there is a shortage of information, a prominent Call of Duty leaker, TheGhostofHope, previously suggested that features from Titanium Trials: Endurance mode in Warzone 1 (now Warzone Caldera) may be included in Warzone 2’s Ranked Play mode. In the limited-time mode back in Warzone 1, the following changes were made:
- Maximum base armor threshold increased to 300 hit points (total 400 health when fully shielded)
- Health regeneration is slower.
- All players get a self-revive kit.
- The cost of loadouts in Buy Stations is increased.
- Spawned loot optimized for slower time-to-kill.
- A total of 152 players will be present on the map.
If these gameplay changes follow over to WZ2, the overall pace of gameplay will decrease, and players will have to be extremely cautious while taking fights. However, being a competitive mode, such changes are expected to keep things fair and even for all players.
Ranked Play mode is a highly anticipated game mode in Call of Duty: Warzone 2. While the developers have not revealed much information, it is expected to arrive in Season 3 or beyond.
