Warzone players reportedly being placed into private lobbies

Some Call of Duty Warzone players are reporting that they are being placed into private lobbies, despite the fact that the feature currently isn’t available in the game yet.

Warzone is packed with interesting features. From in-game elements like the Gulag and buy stations, to interesting gamemodes like 50v50 rumble and Juggernaut Battle Royale, there’s no denying that the game is stacked to the brim with content.


One feature that’s been missing since launch, however, is private matches. The ability for players to jump into the own matches with nobody else (or, at the very least, select players) is something that fans have been clamoring for and, as of yet, the developers haven’t obliged. That might be changing soon, though.

Some players are now reporting that they are being placed into private Warzone lobbies against their will, despite the feature not being implemented into the game in any capacity.


The news comes the way of Twitter user and CoD insider ModernWarzone, who noticed a player on TikTok made a video about being in a private lobby.

Unfortunately, the video and the lobby aren’t filled with details, so there’s not much to go off of. There’s a ‘game setup’ option, but the user never goes into the menu in order to see what he can turn on and off.

Weirdly enough, the map icon in the bottom of the map is automatically greyed out. The reason for this is not immediately clear. Could it be that private matches aren’t available on the current map but will be available on a new map, which is rumored to be coming with Black Ops Cold War?


Whatever the reason, here’s hoping it doesn’t take too long to get our hands on private matches in Warzone. With the option being available in normal multiplayer and even other Call of Duty battle royale games like Blackout, there’s really no reason it shouldn’t be in the game.

Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting another huge Call of Duty tournament and this time, Warzone is in focus as the best players will be coming together in an entirely new format.

From Black Ops 4 to Ghosts and even Modern Warfare 2, Hitch has been hosting an assortment of throwback CoD events throughout the offseason. However, his sights are now set on Warzone as the next competition is on the horizon.


Call of Duty’s best pro players will be joining the top Warzone challengers and some of the biggest streamers in the ‘Cracked Creators’ event. 16 “cracked” players will be thrown into the mix alongside 16 content creators with $10,000 on the line.

The format is something completely new so expect every competitor to be tested like never before. From where you can watch to every player lined up, here’s what you need to know about the Cracked Creators Warzone tournament.


How to watch the Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Given the unique format with this event, there’s a good chance it runs for quite a while. So expect a good few hours of action once it gets going. We’ve embedded the BoomTV stream below so you can catch the event as it goes live.


Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament format

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
