A glitch in Modern Warfare is giving players access to the previously-leaked battle royale called Warzone, revealing new information on the vehicles, modes and more.

Clues about Infinity Ward’s BR component to their Call of Duty game have been rapidly increasing since the Season 2 patch update on February 11. The mode’s existence is all but official now, especially after gameplay footage was leaked of a player exploring Warzone.

Activision have since taken down the video via copyright strikes, but more players have reportedly been gaining access to the mode’s main menu via a glitch in the game.

The most prominent aspect of the leak were the modes listed for Warzone that will let players different approaches to the battle royale.

In-game screenshots taken by Twitter user ‘CaptainBadfoot’ showed that there will be Trios mode as well as a Squads, the latter having the classic ‘fill’ or ‘no fill’ option that’s been customary in most battle royales.

A permanent trios mode was popularized by Apex Legends and briefly featured in Fortnite LTMs. Now it’s going to get another chance as a game type in Modern Warfare’s iteration of the genre.

What vehicles are in Warzone?

Vehicles were a big part of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout battle royale mode, and it appears Infinity Ward are continuing that trend. Another leaked in-game image revealed that there could be five different types of vehicles in Warzone:

  • ATV
  • SUV
  • Heli
  • Cargo Truck
  • Tac Rover

While this is far from an official confirmation, it does make it likelier that Warzone will feature aerial warfare in addition to land-based battle, and maybe even some water as well.

 

The details revealed through this glitch adds to the tons of information that are already available for Warzone. Earlier, leaked gameplay footage showed how some of the game’s features will work, such as the Plunder currency, Drop Kits, purchasable Equipment, and more.

Of course, Infinity Ward and Activision have still not announced or even acknowledged this mode. However, they’ve gone to great lengths to get all of the leaks taken down, both on YouTube and Twitter, and have even banned the player who posted these screenshots online.

Some have interpreted this effort that the devs and publishers have been putting into suppressing all of the leaked content as an indirect admission that there indeed is a battle royale mode coming to Modern Warfare.

At this point, the question has turned from if to when.

The normal BR Solos are not available in Warzone, with Buy Back Solos and Mini Royale Solos taking its place. When will the normal solo mode come back? Well, here’s what we know.

Ever since Warzone released back in March, a number of different modes have been added alongside the normal quads, trios, and duos modes.

You’ve had things like Juggernaut Royale, Buy Back Quads, and even Zombies Royale to celebrate the spooky Halloween period. However, some players just want the normal battle royale mode that they know and love to be available.

Currently, if you just want to play the normal BR mode – where you hop in, loot, use the gulag if you die, and try to be the last player standing – you can only do so in quads, trios, and duos. It’s not available for solos, and players are asking when it’ll be coming back.

Warzone is full of different modes, not just the normal BR formula.

When will BR Solos return to Warzone?

Well, the answer to that question is… it’s up to Raven Software and Activision. They make the call on when the playlists get updated and when things are rotated in and out.

Currently, solo players can only play Buy Back solos – which takes place in Verdansk – and Mini Royale Solos – which takes place on Rebirth Island. The latter of which was rumored to only be lasting until early January, but we’ve blown past that now.

The next big update that looks to be coming to Black Ops Cold War will drop on February 4 – bringing a new Zombies map with it. That could also see major changes come to Warzone, too. However, if enough players kick up a stink about BR solos still being missing, that could push the devs to change whatever plans they’ve got and bring it back sooner rather than later.

Warzone’s solo mode has become incredibly popular since it was added.

Are Warzone solos gone for good?

Whenever something exits the playlist, some fans immediately ask if it’s been scrapped altogether. And no, that’s rarely ever the case.

While modes like Buy Back and Mini Royale add a nice change of pace, sometimes, you just have to stick with the classic battle royale formula. So, don’t worry too much about it possibly being removed forever. That’s really unlikely to be the case.


So, everything points to us seeing normal solos mode return in the near future, it’s just a matter of when Raven and Activision decide to flip the switch and bring it back.

If anything changes, we’ll keep this post updated so you’ll know when you’ll be getting your fix of normal Warzone solos next.
