If you don't fancy playing with some friends and would love to play a game of Warzone 2, then playing on your own would be a great option. We take a look at whether or not you can play solos in COD Warzone 2.
Playing solos in Warzone is straightforward. Once you're on the main menu screen, select "Warzone" from the options. From there, select "Solos" from the game mode options.
Once you've selected "Solos," you'll be matched with other players who have also chosen this game mode. You'll then be taken to the Warzone map and can begin playing solo.
Solos isn't the only game mode you can play alone. Those looking for a challenge can queue in any Warzone game mode and choose to not Squad Fill. If you don't Squad Fill, you will be on your own despite being in a team-based game mode. This can be a good way to practice getting better at overcoming unfavorable gunfights. Although the odds will be greatly stacked against you!
It's worth remembering that Solos plays very differently from every other Warzone 2 game mode. With up to 150 players all out for themselves, approaching any building, road, and all points of interest runs the risk of ending your game. If you are still honing your skills. you should play cautiously to avoid getting overwhelmed and ending up in the Gulag.
Battle Royale Solos does not utilize assimilation. Assimilation is a new gameplay mechanic in some game modes in Warzone 2 that lets your squad recruit an enemy squad and team up. It's an important feature of the team-based modes as there's an obvious advantage in having more people on your side. However, it goes against the spirit of Solos and is therefore not present in that mode.
Now that you know how to play solos in Warzone, let's discuss how to maximize your gameplay experience.
Understand the Map
One of the most critical aspects of Warzone is understanding the map. Knowing where to find loot, where to avoid enemies, and where to go for cover can make a significant difference in your gameplay experience.
Choose your landing spot wisely.
Avoid popular areas where you're likely to run into other players. Instead, land in less crowded areas where you can loot in peace.
Move slowly and keep an eye out for other players. Don't rush into any situations without assessing the risk first.
Get good in the Gulag
If you die in solos, you'll be sent to the Gulag, where you'll have the chance to fight your way back into the game. If you win the Gulag battle, you'll be redeployed onto the map.
Pay Attention to the Circle
In Warzone solos, the circle is your enemy. Make sure you're always paying attention to the circle's location and have a plan for getting to safety if it starts closing in on you.
Use Your Equipment Wisely
In Warzone solos, you're limited to what equipment you can carry. Make sure you're using your equipment wisely and strategically to gain an advantage over your opponents.
There is nothing wrong with some camping, especially where there are a ton of players closeby. It's alwasy an option to consider to hide a little in solos as you don't have any teammates to revive you if you get knocked down.
As of launch, there are five game modes available in Warzone 2:
Battle Royale Solos
Battle Royale Duos
Battle Royale Quads
Unhinged BR Trios
3rd Person BR Trios
All of the game modes are different, and everyone has their favourite. A couple of interesting modes are the Unhinged BR Trios which is a team-based game mode where players can respawn after death, and 3rd Person BR Trios which is a variation of the standard Battle Royale mode with a third-person perspective.
Yes, you can definitely play solos in Warzone 2, either in the solos mode, or with the no fill option turned on in a team event - if you are up to the challenge! Remember the tips, and there is no shame in camping! For a little while anyway.
