6 top tips to win Solo matches in Warzone Season 2

Warzone Solos is one of the toughest Battle Royale experiences, so follow these top tips to be the last man standing in Season 2.

Winning a game of solos in Warzone is tough, but with the right strategy and mindset, you’ll be the last man standing more often than not. Here are a few tips to keep in mind for Season 2.

The very nature of Battle Royale games is that they are RNG. Where the circle pulls, what loot you get, the skill of the enemies, it’s all random. Sometimes you won’t find a weapon and another player will, and its game over.

However, there are strategies and tactics you can pull off to help maximize your potential to win. Having good aim is a massive benefit for Warzone, but positioning and awareness are arguable more important, especially now that Season 2 is here.

Here are six top tips to help you win more Warzone Season 2 solo matches.

Warzone Season 2 battle pass.

Use the meta weapons

This is a controversial take as the vocal minority on social media believe there’s something wrong with using the best weapons available. Sure, it’s always fun to try something different, but if you’re playing exclusively for the win, you should use the meta weapons.

At the time of writing, the FFAR 1 Assault Rifle, MAC-10 SMG, and KAR-98K Marksman Rifle are the best weapons available. They all have an incredibly high time-to-kill, and unfortunately, if you’re not using them, you’ll get killed by them.

You can take a look at the best weapons and loadouts in Warzone Season 2 in our guide.

Land quiet & complete Recon contracts

It’s extremely tempting to land directly on a Scavenger contract or in a busy area such as Superstore or Hangars. You may pick up a handful of kills, but unless you’re extremely skilled, you’ll be at a disadvantage when leaving. Players often land a little bit away from the hotdrops, get loadout, and then push. If you’ve been fighting the whole time, you probably won’t have managed to get a loadout.

If you land in a quiet area, you can loot up in piece and get everything you need for the match ahead. Use this downtime to complete Recon Contracts and you’ll know exactly where the next circles will go.

Avoid buildings

Solos is the campiest of any Warzone experience. Players will do almost anything for the win, and most often, this means camping inside buildings.

Warzone buildings

Unless you hear a chest humming from inside a house, it’s probably best to avoid it. You never know what disaster awaits inside, whether its a claymore by the door, or a player sitting in a corner with a dual Diamattis. Even then, some players purposely leave chests as bait.

Instead, if its likely an enemy is inside a building, position yourself between it and the next zone. When the camper leaves their den, they will be easy picking as they come towards you.

Pinwheel rotate to the next zone early

Holding players outside of the circle is an extremely effective strategy. There’s nothing worse than having the gas nipping at your heels while a player is on a headglitch in front of you, so you want to be that player.

As soon as you see where the next circle is, you want to be one of the first to rotate. YouTuber IceManIsaac has made a great video on how to ‘pinwheel rotate’ to the next zone. To put it simply, what you need to do is go round the edge of the circle before moving in. This way, you know behind you is clear when you decide to move.

Alternatively, if you hear gunfire outside of the next zone, you want to position yourself in the circle so the winner will need to run into you. Once the fight has concluded, the winning player will be late to rotate in and you can easily pick them off.

Take the high ground

A lesson learned from Obi-Wan Kenobi, the high ground is the key to victory. You never want to be caught in an uphill battle where the enemy can see all of you, and you can only see the tip of their head.

Contrary to our tip on avoiding buildings, if a building provides high ground over the final circle, that’s where you want to be. Even if you get knocked by a player below, they won’t be able to finish you off as you will drop away from their view.

If you need to drop down from a high building, don’t glide immediately as then you will be easy pickings. Fall almost to the ground, then pull your shoot at the last second.

Third-party in the last circle

Execution in Warzone

In Warzone solos, the win is often taken by the stealthiest player. Say there are three players left – you and two enemies. If you spot one of them, don’t shoot. Keep an eye on them (but don’t get tunnel vision), and wait for them to engage the other player. Once they are fighting, you have every advantage in the fight. They will be focused on the other player, and probably weak as they trade shots.

This has to be decided by you while in the situation, as sometimes you have no other choice but to take the fight. As soon as it’s over, immediately get ready for the last player to push you. Unless you desperately need armor or ammo, don’t bother looting.

While all of these tips will be of great help in winning Warzone solos, don’t solely rely on them. You need to decide yourself the best thing to do in the given situation.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

Raven Software has dropped a preview of some changes coming to Call of Duty: Warzone with the Season 3 update.

The studio responded to a big Twitter thread by YouTuber CourageJD. Courage dropped a list of major changes he wants to see to bring Warzone back to a better place, especially with a lot of the fan complaints.

Raven Software replied to CourageJD’s thread with a preview of some of the changes the studio is making to Call of Duty: Warzone soon, including many coming with Season 3 update on April 22.

Warzone Season 3 Updates

  • An adjustment to Roze
  • A significant balance pass to weapons such as the Tac Rifle Charlie, M16, FFAR 1, and Sykov
  • Fix for MW weapon perks + sniper glint
  • Change to how you acquire the RC-XD

Many of the changes listed above are some of the big complaints players have had over the last few months in Warzone. Roze skin having almost an invisibility look in the dark has been big for players, and Raven has finally acknowledged that.

The latest weapon addition for Warzone, the Sykov Pistol from the Modern Warfare universe, was added on April 15 and instantly became overpowered. Raven now confirms a nerf is coming for it.

The studio also told Courage that they want to “reassure” fans that all feedback is being read around Warzone.

More Surprises To Come

Raven has promised in another tweet that there are more “surprises” in store for Season 3 that will be announced with the update.

Other changes expected for Season 3 is a revamp of Verdansk map, which will see the map be transported and rebuilt for the 1980s Black Ops Cold War era.
