Call of Duty: Warzone features 150 players



Call of Duty: Warzone features one of the higher player counts in any Battle Royale mode so far. The game features 150 players.

Rumors for Call of Duty: Warzone and game files suggested there would be 200 players in the mode, but Infinity Ward confirmed during our visit that they have 150 player lobbies for Call of Duty: Warzone as that’s the number that is working best for the mode overall.

They want to focus on player experience versus hitting a higher number, so they’re set to launch with support for 150 players in Warzone in both Battle Royale and Plunder.

150 players works well in this large map in Warzone, which is a lot bigger than Black Ops 4’s Blackout map, which had around 100 player matches.

And with 150 players, there really is no screen taring or FPS drops experienced from our play testing session at the studio on a PlayStation 4 Pro, while Blackout did experience those. This seems to be the fact that the game I built on a new engine compared to Black Ops 4’s Blackout which offers better optimization overall for the game.

Whether Infinity Ward decides to adjust the player counts to higher numbers or lower is up in the air, as the studio said they would monitor player feedback to see how they should adjust and how the matches are feeling.

Warzone leak reveals equippable helmets return to game files

Warzone data miners have reportedly found equippable helmets in the game files again after they were scrapped before the game’s launch.



helmets reportedly found in Warzone game files again

Equippable helmets were found in Warzone’s game files before the game launched in 2020, but data miners claim they have been added back with new voice lines.

Before Warzone launched in 2020, details of a now-scrapped armor system were discovered in the game files. This system included tiers of armor, along with bandages to heal and equippable helmets. This is the way most other battle royale games such as Apex Legends and PUBG handle their health systems, so Warzone was expected to follow suit.

However, that was changed for the more fast-paced system with minimal looting that we all now know. Healing items were replaced with automatic health regeneration and armor tiers were scrapped for the plate system.

Helmets may be making a return with leak reporter VanguardIntel and data miner Nanikos claiming they have returned to the game files. Vanguard said the helmets will have three tiers to them:

  • Lvl 1: Reduces Headshot Damage by 15%
  • Lvl 2: Reduces Headshot Damage by 30%
  • Lvl 3: Reduces Headshot Damage by 30%. Reduces flash and concussion effects

Nanikos posted images of the files detailing these helmets, and said that there were “also operator voice lines for pinging a helmet.”

Many have disputed this leak, saying that the helmets are just leftovers from the original armor system. Vanguard claimed that although the helmet system was originally scrapped, “according to [their] sources it has recently been put back in with new voice lines and such.”

Vanguard also clarified that these helmets will be for Warzone, rather than the abandoned Blackout 2.0 that was leaked on April 5.

While there is no real evidence that these helmets will arrive in Warzone, it’s possible that the leaked 1980s overhaul of Verdansk will bring new mechanics to the game. A plethora of new vehicles have also been found in the files, and they could also arrive in Warzone soon.

New game modes leaked for Warzone Season 2

Warzone leaker ZestyCODLeaks has found three new modes in the game files that could arrive in CoD’s battle royale soon.



New game modes leaked for Warzone

With Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2 well underway, notable leaker ZestyCODLeaks has discovered three new modes that could be arriving in the battle royale soon.

Every Call of Duty game comes with its own set of various game modes for players to seek thrills in, and Warzone isn’t any different. The Season 2 update brought a plethora of new content to enjoy, and it seems that more is on the horizon.

Some new leaks have emerged which point towards the arrival of a few new game modes to the battle royale during an upcoming update. This has led to some speculation among fans about what these will entail.

New game modes leaked for Warzone

These leaks came from Warzone data miner and leaker ZestyCODLeaks, who uncovered three different game modes in the game files. While there currently isn’t a ton of information about, their code names are interesting.

The game modes in the Season 2 Reloaded update game files are:

  • br_gametype_bodycount
  • br_gametype_brz
  • br_satellite_hunt

One of these stood out in particular, as a theory formed about the introduction of another mode with Zombies. “Brz sounds like Normal BR with Zombies in various places like they did in Bo4 with Blackout,” tweeted Firebreak.

While that does sound fairly exciting, the data miner currently has no other information about these game modes, so any hunches about what’s in them will be pure speculation until we learn more.

ZestyCODLeaks also uncovered eight new vehicles in the game files earlier, and the new leaked content might be part of the 1980s overhaul to Verdansk. However, this information should be taken with a grain of salt.

Leaks like these never guarantee that this content will arrive in Warzone, but we’ll keep checking for any further information.

Warzone players are losing wins to a rare forfeit screen

A weird new forfeit screen showed up in the final circle of a match, and took away wins from a few Warzone players.



Warzone Forfeit screen is costing players wins

Warzone players Tommey and Almxnd received a strange new forfeit screen in the final circle of a match, and this kept them from achieving victory, much to their confusion.

Warzone Season 2 brought a ton of easter eggs and clues for players to discover around the map. This includes the new Foresight scorestreak, along with hints of a possible 80s themed Verdansk revamp, so there’s plenty of content to enjoy.

However, renowned Warzone players Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren and Ben ‘Almxnd’ came across something strange during a match on April 8. They both received a rare forfeit screen which left them bewildered.

Call of Duty Warzone

A Warzone match can get extremely intense during the final circle, as it’s up to the best squad to win. You’ll need to be particularly careful to secure a victory, but anything can happen in those last few minutes.

Tommey and Almxnd were searching for their opponent, when they both suddenly received a countdown timer, along with a notification that their opponents were forfeiting the match. This was likely a result of the last team leaving the game during the final circle.

However, this was something had never happened to either of the veteran players before, and they were left scratching their heads about what transpired.

Tommey later revealed that the match didn’t count as a win on his statistics, even though the victory normally goes to the last man standing. This is a feature that is unfamiliar to most players in the Call of Duty community.

At the moment, it’s unclear whether this forfeit screen has been in the game since the very beginning, or if it was added to the battle royale in a later patch. Regardless, it’s definitely confusing why the win didn’t go to the last remaining player.

Hopefully, Raven Software will investigate this issue, as it can become frustrating to lose your hard-earned win to a forfeit screen. Once there’s any new developments regarding this, we’ll let you know.
