Overview[]

Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile brings the experience of Call of Duty: Warzone built for mobile devices, featuring combat with up to 120 live players in a match on mobile.

The game also brings a shared experience with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. Nearly all Multiplayer weapons and Operators and a shared Cross-Progression, including the Battle Pass will be shared between the three games. Friends lists and chat channels are also shared across Modern Warfare II, Modern Warfare III or Warzone 2.0, so the player can stay in touch with friends no matter where they choose to play.

Despite shared progression, there is no crossplay between Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile.

Health[]

Players start with 150 health and 2 Armor Plates equipped. Each plate adds 50 extra health. If a player equips another Armor Plate, up to a total of 3 plates, their health raises to its maximum, 300. Armor Plates can be purchased at Buy Stations, as well as an Armor Box which when placed can instantly fill the player's Armor Plate reserves.

Weapons[]

The weapons available in Warzone Mobile include nearly all multiplayer weapons available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III.


Contracts[]

Contracts are optional objectives that teams can complete to earn XP and Weapon XP as well as rare loot or Cash, which can be spent at Buy Stations.

  • A Bounty contract tasks the team with killing a specific player, who is marked by a yellow circle revealing their approximate position on the map. When a player is marked as a bounty target, they and their team can see a bar on their heads-up display that measures the proximity of their hunters to the target.
  • A Recon contract will have the team capture a set point in the map by standing near it, similar to a point in Domination. Completing the contract will give the team one circle peek. Doing more Recon contracts can give additional circle peeks, until the final circle is revealed.
  • A Scavenger contract will mark 3 Supply Boxes located near the player's location, one at a time, and task the team with looting each in a limited time.
  • A Most Wanted contract marks its user for all enemies to see, offering a reward to any player who can eliminate them in a limited time. Letting the time run out completes the contract, rewarding the player and their team with Cash as well as redeploying any eliminated teammates.

Buy Station[]

Buy Stations are boxes that can be found throughout a map where players can purchase equipment, killstreaks using Cash earned during the game. Squadmates can also be redeployed from the Buy Stations for $4,000.

Gulag[]

Main article: Gulag (Warzone)

Warzone Mobile like Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 features a respawning system called Gulag which allows players who were eliminated for the first time to redeploy in the game after winning a short firefight.

When a player is eliminated for the first time, a cutscene will show them being captured and sent to the Gulag. If others players are already in the Gulag, the player will be put in a queue and will be allow to watch the other fights from a high place as well as throwing rocks at the contestants. Once they enter the fight, the player will have to face another player in a 1v1 fight similar to Gunfight. The winner of the fight will be redeployed into the main game again while the loser may spectate the rest of the match or quit. When playing in solo, the loser of the fight won't be able to redeploy and the game ends for them.

Events[]

Events can also randomly happen during a match, usually during the second playzone. In most modes, only one event can occur during a single match.

  • The Jailbreak event allows every down player in Gulag to be redeployed into the map. Other players are notified 1 minute before the jailbreak happens.
  • The Fire Sale event reduces the prices of all items in the Buy Stations up to 100% during 1 minute.
  • The Restock event resupplies every Supply Box which can be opened again.

Vehicles[]

Warzone Mobile features 9 different vehicles including all modes.

In Battle Royale, players must fight against enemy squads to be the last person or team standing. In addition to the loot found on the map and dropped by eliminated players, players can collect Cash to buy equipment or killstreaks from Buy Stations. Squads can also take on Contracts to get loot and Cash.

When a player is eliminated, they are sent to the Gulag where they will have to win the fight for a chance to being brought back into the match. When playing with a squad, the player who died during the fight can be redeployed by their teammates with either a Squad Buyback, which costs $4,000, or by completing a Most Wanted contract. A player who dies again after having won a Gulag fight dies again will need to be redeployed by their teammates. Players can also use a Self-Revive Kit to revive themselves when downed. These are available as loot and at Buy Stations for $4,000.

Buy Back[]

"Revive yourself or your teammate with cash. No Gulag. Last team standing wins."
— Buy Back Description

Introduced with the Season Three of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, Buy Back is a variant of Battle Royale. Unlike normal Battle Royale, Buy Back doesn't feature a Gulag system but only allows players to redeploy their killed teammates by spending $2,500 at the Buy Stations for a duration of 14 minutes and 20 seconds. As such, every player starts a match with $5,000. When playing in a solo version, players can redeploy automatically as long as they have over $3,000.

Resurgence[]

Resurgence takes place on Rebirth Island and works similarly to Resurgence in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. As long as a teammate is alive, players can redeploy after a countdown. They can redeploy 15 seconds after being killed during the first playzone and 39 seconds during the second and third playzones until the Rebirth Countdown runs out after 9 minutes and 15 seconds. After the timer has run out, players being killed will no longer be able to redeploy. Killing a player will also temporarily highlight their teammates on the mini-map.

Every player in Resurgence starts with a Self-Revive Kit. Players can also help their teammates redeploy faster by downing other players reducing the timer by 2 seconds; killing other players, reducing it by 7 seconds; killing other players with a Finishing Move, reducing it by 8 seconds; destroying enemy equipments, reducing the timer by 1 seconds; opening crates, reducing it by 2 seconds; and completing contracts, reducing the timer by 5 seconds.

Plunder[]

Introduced with the Season Three update of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, Plunder takes place on Verdansk and works similarly to Plunder in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. In Plunder, squads race to collect two million in cash. Each match only lasts 20 minutes. Unlike Battle Royale, players have unlimited respawns and redeployments and can spawn with their own loadouts.

In order to accumulate the most amount of cash before time runs out, squads can open Supply Boxes, taking and completing Contracts or eliminating players who will drop a percentage of the cash they were holding before dying. Cash Drops containing $100,000 can also appear around the map. The squads with the most money are marked on the Tac Map of all players by a red bag icon and a red crown icon for the squad with the most cash.

Once a squad has reached $2,000,000, an overtime timer appears with a 4-minute countdown and all the cash collected afterward is automatically deposited. In addition, all the cash collected by every squad during the overtime is multiplied by 1.5x. The match ends after the standard 30 minutes or after the 4-minute timer.
