In a recent interview with GamerGen (via CODTracker), Infinity Ward’s Narrative Lead, Taylor Kurosaki, and Raven Software’s Director, Amos Hodge spoke about many different aspects of Call of Duty: Warzone, including playlists.
One of the things that has happened with Warzone is the devs have been rotating playlists in and out versus keeping a standard set of playlists constantly, like MP does. Hodge says this resolves around the fact that the game has to matchmake 150 players per match, which becomes more challenging the more playlists options there are – especially in smaller regions of the world.
We’re trying to run this like it’s own product. If you look on Modern Warfare, they’re constantly rotating modes in and out…so we’re just trying to find our footing on that, what are the core modes and what we can rotate in and out. We want to keep players engaged, making new modes, we don’t want the game to get stale, but at the same time, we can’t have ten or fifteen playlist because people will start to get bad connections, we wouldn’t be able to matchmake – 150 players is a lot. We’re trying to find that balance between the core mode and what we can rotate in and out. When we put out a new mode, we really want to listen to the community – did they liked it, did they not liked it, which mode they prefer… A lot of our live activity is community driven.
Hodge confirms in the interview that Duos is in development and coming soon, but the studio is working on some bugs with the mode before they can release. They said that the teams have heard player feedback for the mode and are working on it.
AH: We had Duos on Plunder, but I’m not sure where Duos is, we got some bugs to work out with Duos. But we’re listening to the community – if you noticed, we launched with just Trios, then we added Solos, the we added Quads, so we will get to a place where we add Duos in the future. There’s just no exact time I can give you for now, but Duos is coming. You’ve already seen in Plunder, but there’s just thing we gotta figure out, find the right timing and everything else.
Kurosaki says the teams are still working to s the best standard modes for Warzone and what players are engage with the most in order to tweak the modes to better suit the community’s play styles.
TK: As Amos said, it’s a brand new game, it’s been out for a little over a month now. Unlike mature mode like core Multiplayer in Call of Duty, we’re trying to figure out what these core modes are. It’s funny – I know Amos is active on social medias, and I’m as well – when you add Quads, people are like “Where are the Trios?” And then you go to Trios and they go “Where are the Quads?” ! Everyone wants to play the game in a slightly different way, which is really cool and exciting, so we’re trying to figure out what the standard modes are, and what are the modes that works better as sort of a short time, mixing it up kind of situation. We’re listening and continually tweaking it, and like Amos said, we’re supporting this game full force. It’s been amazing to see the power of these two studios fully focused on this game right now.
There’s no set release date yet for Duos mode in Call of Duty: Warzone, so stay tuned for updates.
Warzone squad sets new kill record at 143 kills
A new Warzone kill record has been achieved, at an impressive 143 kills. This surpasses Vikkstar’s record of 138 kills.
A new Warzone record has been hit, raising the new quads mode record to a stunning 143 kills.
A new group of players has beat the previous quads kill record of 138 and now take the crown for most kills at 143.
The squad, armed with DMR’s and MAC-10’s managed to turn the entire server into swiss cheese, mowing through every player unlucky enough to be in the path of their carnage. One player, Stukawaki even managed to pick up an impressive 48 kills solo, which put him at the top of the scoreboard.
Following Stukawaki’s kills, we have ScummN with 43, TheMylesLive with 27, and JerK with 25.
Considering this record beats the previous kill record set in May 2020, it may be some time until this record is beaten. The DMR meta equipped players to take down enemies in record time, so players will definitely have issues trying to top this record.
Regardless of the meta, this record is very impressive and the gameplay clearly shows the synergy and communication between this well-tuned squad of expert players.
This record has flown a bit under the radar for a few days now, but its official: the previous 8-month standing Quads kill record set by professional Call of Duty players, has now been beaten by a rising group of Warzone superstars.
Could this be the ultimate record?
With the DMR meta being patched by Raven, leaving the rest of the Black Ops Cold War weapons for use in Warzone, we imagine it will be quite some time before players get comfortable enough with the new loadouts.
We’ll just have to see what weapons the community gravitates to in the coming weeks, and how efficient squads will be at winning gunfights with them.
With that said, a huge congratulations to all these players for setting the kill record. You can find all their Twitch channels below.

All Warzone Bunker Keypad Codes
You can enter certain Bunkers in Call of Duty: Warzone to collect loot for yourself by using these Keypad Codes.
The Bunkers in Call of Duty: Warzone are a great source of cash, armor, and supplies for your team in Verdansk. You will need special Keypad Codes to access some of them, and here are all the ones in the game.
With Call of Duty: Warzone Season 1 well underway, you can expect heavy competition from other players after you land in Verdansk. If you want to survive, then you’ll have to find ways to get ahead of your enemies through powerful weapons and gear.
Warzone Bunkers often contain fabulous rewards that you can use to kit yourself out with some impressive new gear. You’ll often have to take on your opponents before you can reap their rewards, and after that, you can enter the structure.
While some Bunkers can be accessed with a Red Access Card, others require a special code to enter them. Here are all the Bunker Keypad Codes in Warzone Season 1.
All Bunker Keypad Codes in Warzone Season 1
First thing’s first, you’ll need to find the Bunkers before you can enter them, and collect all that neat loot. You can take a look at their locations on the map in our guide for finding every Bunker in Call of Duty: Warzone.
Once you’ve found a Bunker you’ll need to head inside, and you will spot a keypad next to a locked door. From there, you can enter the following codes for each corresponding bunker:
- Bunker North the Junkyard: 87624851
- Bunker South-West of the Boneyard: 97264138
- Bunker near Styor Spomenik war memorial: 60274513
- Shack North-East of the Prison: 72948531
- Room in Farmland: 49285163
- Shack near TV Station: 27495810
That covers every Bunker Keypad Code in Warzone Season 1.
While Bunkers provide you with amazing rewards and benefits that can sway the game in your favor, they also pose a high risk since you’ll have to battle a ton of other players that are looking to kit-out their squads.
The best strategy when you make your way into a Bunker is to have your team watching your back. One teammate should guard the entrance while the other focuses on opening the locked door. Hopefully, this helped,. Stay tuned for more Warzone guides on the way.
