Newly leaked menu screen images for Call of Duty’s new Warzone battle royale may have revealed that squads and duo modes are coming in the future, along with custom game options and features.

Infinity Ward introduced a brand new solos playlist in Warzone’s March 17 update, the first post-launch content added to the battle royale.

This means players can currently drop in solo or with teams of three, but a new leak could point to playlists for duos and squads of four coming soon, as well.

It looks like options to play in duos and squads will be added to Warzone in the near future.

The leak was posted to Twitter by ModernWarzone, who credited a user on Discord by the name of Shenlord for originally bringing the images to their attention.

Both images show a menu for setting up a custom Warzone game, with the option to choose duos or squads – two game modes that were always assumed to be added eventually, but never seen in-game until now.

Being able to run your own private matches and even change the rules in them is something a lot of players have been asking for with Warzone, and it seems like that feature will finally be making its way to the game.

Other battle royales like Fortnite offer duos and squads, so it only makes sense that Infinity Ward would also add them to Warzone.

As to when we could see these new features added: if there are screenshots of them floating around, that means they probably aren’t too far off.

We saw the first Warzone update on Tuesday, March 17, so it might be worth keeping an eye on next Tuesday, March 24 as the date for when we could see the next patch.

Activision
Tuesday’s seem to be Warzone’s update days, but whether or not we’ll see duos and squads added next update is up to devs.

Like Apex Legends, Warzone initially debuted only offering trios matches; but for a game getting as much hype and attention from fans, it only makes sense for devs to add more modes as quickly as possible.

Having modes available from solos up to squads should give most players the option the play the battle royale the way they prefer, and potentially help Warzone stick around for the long haul.

Call of Duty players have uncovered an unusual field-of-view setting in Warzone, claiming that weapons such as the CR-AMAX seem to have less visual recoil when it is toggled.

The weapon meta is continuing to shift in Warzone as more changes are released in Season 6, giving players plenty of unique weapons and playstyle to try in the battle royale.

Popular YouTuber Swagg was one of the latest to reveal a Season 6 loadout for Warzone but claimed there was also a “secret” setting that was helping him to rack up more kills in-game.

Infinity Ward
CoD players like Swagg have claimed that Warzone’s FOV settings can affect recoil in-game.

While the CR-56 AMAX, which was featured as the Galil in past CoD titles, has been a solid weapon since its release, there are, apparently, some field-of-view settings that Warzone players can change to make the gun easier to use.

In his October 24 upload, Swagg revealed that having the “Affected FOV” setting enabled makes it seem as if the AMAX has little to no recoil. This is opposed to the default Independent FOV setting.

“Affected FOV on PC makes guns feel like they don’t have recoil,” Swagg revealed, in his Warzone gameplay, “[it’s the] reason why I use Amax now.”

The AMAX does not usually stand out above other Assault Rifles in its class, but it still has one of the highest base stats when it comes to damage per second (DPS), meaning that less recoil would make this quite a strong choice in the current meta.

While the weapon, with these affected FOV settings, appears to move less compared to CR-56 AMAX gameplay for console players, it is unclear whether or not it actually has a major effect on the gun.

However, it seemed to be working quite well for Swagg, as he highlighted just how strong it could be, managing to pick up plenty of kills in his Warzone match with fellow content creator booya.

Another CoD YouTuber Webzy has previously highlighted the difference in recoil between the Affected and Independent settings, echoing the sentiment of the FaZe member and claiming it was actually easier to hit shots with it enabled.

Infinity Ward is regularly coming out with fixes for any bugs found in-game but it appears as if this FOV setting was intended to be a feature, making it unclear whether or not this will be patched.
