Warzone 2 ranked has proven to be a big hit among competitive players and those looking for a little more from their Call of Duty battle royale experience, but with limitations on which ranks can play together, here’s who you’re allowed to play with based on your rank in the game.

The devs finally answered players’ prayers in the Season 3 Reloaded update in May 2023, when Treyarch was brought on to introduce Ranked Play to the game, emulating the format from Modern Warfare 2’s popular ranked mode in multiplayer.

  • Bronze – Platinum: Can party up without any restrictions
  • Diamond: Can party up within 2 Skill Divisions
  • Crimson – T250: Can party with players within 1 Skill Division

So, if you’re at a significantly higher (or lower) rank than your friends or teammates, there might be some struggles to always team up, but by and large, there shouldn’t be that much discrepancy between people who play together regularly.

Naturally, there will be instances where you end up playing in ranked games against all different ranks, whether you’re Bronze or Iridescent. While it can be frustrating, especially if your opponents are ranked significantly higher, this shouldn’t happen too often.
