Call of Duty may have accidentally revealed Warzone Duos coming soon

A brief update to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 3 website briefly displayed an official teaser for a Duos mode in Warzone.

The since-deleted image showed a preview of the “New Modes” coming to the battle royale. The teaser included an image of four players dropping together depicting Quads along with characters dressed in covert suits with snipers, possibly for ‘Scopes and Scatter Guns.’

But the third image that made a short appearance on the site was for a previously unannounced Duos mode that showed one player firing at an opponent while another covered them from below with a Tactical Shield.

A Duos playlist was teased for a short time on the Call of Duty site.

The Call of Duty site was quickly updated which removed the image of the highly-requested mode.

A playlist for Quads is already live in Warzone and we know that Season 3 will bring a continuous supply of new playlists for the free-to-play BR component of Modern Warfare.

While the teaser was shown on an official channel for the devs, the mention of Duos was seemingly premature.

The image briefly shown on the Call of Duty website indicating a Duos mode is a part of Season 3 plans.

The updated site now removes all mentions of Duos. Though the playlist hasn’t yet been officially announced, the mistakenly posted image is so far the strongest evidence that the devs are considering adding two-member squads.

If it is something that Warzone will get in Season 3, the Infinity Ward or Activision will likely be making an official announcement detailing Duos soon.

The news comes on the heels of player concerns that have cropped up since Warzone lost the fan-favorite Trios playlist in lieu of Quads, following the massive update on April 7.

Warzone Duos would be a popular mode for a lot of Call of Duty players.

“WHY would you add Quads, but REMOVE Trios?!” Reddit user ‘lWoooooOl’ said. “We want Solos, Duos, Trios, AND Quads, not just 1 or 2 options. This better not mean Quads will go away eventually or something.”

Even though there are going to be more rotating modes throughout Season 3, there are some that players would consider as staples for any battle royale.

It’s unclear if the yet-to-be-announced Duos would be the next candidate to replace Quads in Warzone, or if the devs would rather have both playlists running simultaneously.

In either case, Infinity Ward are bound to appeal to a large portion of their fan base if they do decide to add it, and judging by this slip-up on the official CoD website, the mode is on its way!

Scump explains why new CDL “bubble” in Texas is a big advantage

All of OpTic Chicago, along with a majority of other pro teams, have relocated to Texas for the Call of Duty League 2021 season, and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner believes it’s going to give them a huge “advantage” over their CDL rivals.

With the switch to online play in 2020, teams were scattered across the United States. Players could be competing from the other side of the country with a significant network disadvantage.

Given LAN events are still a ways off due to the ongoing global crisis, a majority of CDL pros have established a makeshift “bubble” in Texas to combat the issue. With all players in one location, Scump argues that it only benefits teams for the year ahead.

“I absolutely love it,” he said on January 27. With his teammates all training out the H3CZQUARTERS facility, there appear to be no excuses for the upcoming season.

Being in the one location affords a degree of team bonding that you just can’t get online, according to Scump.“I think it has tremendously improved our team chemistry. Every single night [the team] is always hanging out after scrims.”

“You can just tell. It feels like we trust each other a lot more inside of the game. We trust each other to make good decisions and do the right things on the map.”

From OpTic’s standpoint, it’s not just the team chemistry that’s proving valuable. “On top of that, you have the sheer connection advantage,” Scump added.

“I believe 31 of 48 players are in Texas right now and it might even be more than that. Clearly, Texas has some sort of connection advantage for people to want to pick up their lives and move down here to compete.”

We’ve already seen the move pay dividends for OpTic as they recently blitzed through the LA Thieves 3-0 in the Kickoff Classic. “We’ve been playing super good. I can’t even remember the last time we lost a scrim set. It’s been amazing to have the whole team here and I think it’s only going to benefit us moving forward.”

With other teams having followed suit with a move to Texas, it should help establish a more even playing field for a majority of matchups this year.
