Warzone 2 strategist reveals best settings for Ashika Island

Warzone 2 introduced a new Resurgence map as part of the Season 2 update, and the LA Guerillas revealed the best settings to dominate Ashika Island.

Ashika Island provides Warzone 2 players with a new environment to explore, and it’s a much different experience than Al Mazrah. The Japanese-inspired island emphasizes fast-paced gameplay and close-range engagements.

In comparison, Al Mazrah’s sprawling desert landscape plays right into the hands of long-range weapons and tactical positioning. JGOD did the science; Al Mazrah is the second largest Call of Duty BR map, and Ashika Island is the second smallest.

Understanding the different settings to use for each game mode is essential.
