A new Warzone website allows you to view and track your stats in a host of different ways, to see if you’re making progress in Call of Duty’s battle royale.

Warzone players have long been calling on Activision to improve the in-game stats and kill records. This is alongside calls for an exhaustive anti-cheat system and to tone down skill-based matchmaking.

However, many have found Activision’s silence frustrating, as well as their efforts to inhibit players learning about the lobbies they are in.

As such, many third parties have founded websites that specifically focus on providing Warzone players with stats and data relating to their own gameplay.

One of these is WZranked.com, a site specifically designed to let users track their stats and win percentages over time. This enables players to easily see which way their skills are going – whether you’re improving or worsening.

Not only does it show you statistics behind regular matches, but it also allows you to view your Gulag win ratios. These are then mapped out onto graphs to allows you to see rises and falls over time.

For example, when Gulag weapons are changed you might see a drop in your skills, indicating you were better suited to the previous weapon selection.

How to use WZRanked

Signing up is pretty simple. Head over to the website’s home page and enter your BattleNet, Playstation or Xbox ID. Here, you have to enter your full username, with # and any numbers.

Once this is done, you should be able to hit search and find your stats. However, Activision’s recent changes mean you will have to opt in to make your stats public. This allows websites like WZRanked to get hold of them and show you them in all their glory.

To do this, go to my.callofduty.com or go through the Call of Duty companion app. Activision made this change to reduce the prevalence of players leaving lobbies upon realizing they were in amongst immensely tough opponents.

It really is that simple. Once all that’s done, enjoy looking at your stats and working out what you’ve been doing right (or wrong).

With the launch of Season 2, Warzone has brand new Yellow Access Cards. They’re extremely rare and offer the chance of some very good loot to put you ahead of the competition.

Season 2 has brought a tonne of new content to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, including new weapons, skins and maps.

In Verdansk specifically, there are a small group of brand new weapon silos to pick up some impressive loot as well as the new Shipwreck POI.

Shipwreck has brought zombies back to Verdansk, and they’re actually the key to finding the Yellow Access Card. Here’s what you’ve got to do.

How to get Yellow Access Card in Warzone

The first thing to note about the Yellow Access Card is that it’s extremely rare. In fact, there’s only one per lobby.

To get the Yellow Access Card, you have to head to the new Shipwreck POI and start slaying the zombies as part of the Outbreak event.

It doesn’t matter how many you kill, but the very last zombie drops the Yellow Access Card. So, technically, you can join the party late and take out any enemies and the final zombie and claim your prize.

Rewards & how to use it

Using the Yellow Access Card is simple: you simply head to the unique yellow loot crate on the ship, as specified with a popup image on screen.

From there, you can just pop the crate open and take your rewards, with a bunch of cash, armor satchels, weapons and more available.

Of course, this isn’t an easy task to complete. If you’ve already dropped in at Shipwreck, you’ll know it gets seriously busy, and as more and more players discover the secrets of the Yellow Access Card, this will only become more amplified.

So, if you think you’ve got the gunskill to take out half the lobby and a bunch of zombies too, it’s well worth heading down to Shipwreck and seeing what you can do.
