Call of Duty players can now gift their friends a Battle Pass in Warzone & Black Ops Cold War using the game’s companion app. 

Having released back in 2020, Warzone has certainly had time to build a catalog of incredible cosmetics for players to collect. While a lot of these blueprints and skins can be purchased directly from the store, it’s the Battle Pass that offers the best value for money.

For only 1000 CoD points, players can unlock 100 tiers of rewards to progress through and earn. Despite this, until now, it was impossible for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone players to gift their friends the Battle Pass.

Well, the devs have recently implemented this feature and it’s now possible to surprise your squadmates the latest cosmetics & rewards the game has to offer.

Gifting a Battle Pass in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War is a relatively simple process but there are a few requirements before you can complete the purchase.

Firstly, you’ll need to make sure you have two-factor authentication activated on your Activision account and ensure you’ve been friends with the giftee for over seven days. After that, make sure you have the Call of Duty companion app installed on one of your devices.

Gifting Battle Passes directly in Warzone will soon be possible.

While the gifting feature is now available directly in Black Ops Cold War, the functionality is yet to arrive in Warzone. For those playing the free version of the battle royale, this means you’ll have to refer to the two previous options for the time being.

There’s currently no date set in stone for Battle Pass gifting in Warzone. However, Treyarch has assured it’s on the way at some stage throughout Season 4.

We’ll keep you up to speed right here as soon as the gifting feature becomes available directly in Warzone.
