Plunder has finally made its long-awaited return to Warzone 2 in Season 3 and it has a fresh coat of paint.

Warzone 2 Season 3 adds a few new game modes to the battle royale sequel. Massive Resurgence brings the fan-favorite game mode to Al Mazrah. The game mode plays the same as Ashika Island but adjusts for a much larger lobby size.

Season 3 also marks the introduction of a Ranked Play mode. We still don’t know much about the competitive mode, but the developers announced a Top 250 system and a separate ruleset from the standard battle royale experience.

Plunder grew to become a beloved game mode in Warzone 1.

Plunder tasks squads with gathering as much in-game cash as possible, only winning when they become the first team to collect $1 million. In Warzone 2, cash can be earned by eliminating enemies, completing contracts, partaking in events, or clearing out Strongholds and Blacksites.
