Warzone 2 is fast approaching Season 2, and despite a delay, it's now right around the corner with some huge changes in the works. Rebirth is finally making a return, as well as a ton of balancing changes to provide a much needed shake up to the meta.
Ever since the new Battle Royale dropped, fans have been asking for changes to the gulag, looting, and more, and their prayers haev finally been answered. Here's everything you need to know about the gameplay changes coming with the new season.
Warzone 2 Gulag Changes
1v1 Gulag will be returning with the launch of Season 2. With this change, Players will see the return of the original Warzone overtime mechanic. That is, the Domination-style flag control point in place of the Jailer.
Two versus two gulag has been controversial ever since its release, with many players not liking having to rely on a random teammate. This should make the gulag a much more consistent experience, and feel much more rewarding.
Additionally, the Warzone 2 Gulag weapon cache has been updated, to include Assault Rifles, Submachine Guns, and Light Machine Guns as Primary Weapons as the Circles progress.
For those leaving the arena victorious, the Gulag will grant a larger Cash reward to players. This change to cash will allow redeploying players to get back on their feet a bit faster.
Warzone 2 is shifting away from loot windows/menus to floating loot that will now drop out of all containers in the world, similar to loot from Supply Boxes. This will bring it in line with the looting system of the original Warzone, which many players preferred.
The change is intended to improve the pace of gameplay by reducing time spent navigating the UI and getting players back in the action faster. Backpack sizes will also be reduced, with everyone now having the same size.
This will subsequently reduce the impact of stacking medical supplies, Equipment, and Killstreaks in Warzone 2.
Loadout Drop Changes
Season 2 will introduce customizable Perk Packages! This feature will launch with a slightly reduced pool of available Perks, which will be slowly reintroduced over time. This should make for a more balanced experience.
A second Loadout Drop Public Event has been added to Warzone 2, which means the drops will now happen on the first and fifth Circles each match. Additionally, the price of Loadout Drop Markers has been slightly reduced so that respective Squad sizes can acquire their full Loadouts at a faster pace.
