Free battle royale shooter game

Call of Duty: Warzone is a free-to-play Call of Duty game with two main game modes: Battle Royale and Plunder. It has other cool game modes, as well, and its preloaded sequel—Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0—adds more fun features for both the single-player and multiplayer experiences.

Call of Duty: Warzone comes from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, while Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 was released as part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (2022). With a free-to-play business model, players can try out the action game’s in-game purchases and Battle Passes to help make their playing much more enjoyable.

Is Call of Duty: Warzone free?

Both Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 are free on gaming consoles and desktop operating systems. These gaming titles are available for Microsoft Windows PC (11, 10, 8.1, 8, 7), PlayStation 4, Xbox Series S, and Series X devices. Other similar free games include Apex Legends, Fortnite, and PUBG.

Where can I download Warzone for PC?

While Warzone automatically comes included in the Modern Warfare gaming package, so you do not need Modern Warfare to play Warzone. You can download Warzone as a standalone game. This is the same for Warzone 2.0 in Modern Warfare II. An upgrade to this sequel is that it has shared progression with Modern Warfare II, and shared cross-platform progression and social features with Call of Duty®: Warzone™ Mobile. Additionally, Warzone and Warzone 2.0 will function separately.

Why is Call of Duty: Warzone so big?

The map is massive. Multiplayer Mode lets you team up with a squad of people and you can choose to get together with friends or people you do not know. Single-player Mode lets you take on the competitors alone, and the battle royale solo match is more difficult considering you do not have additional support from your team members. More skill is required to win solo mode. Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, in particular, offers a new map called Al Mazrah, which can host up to 150 players and features 18 points of interest such as the Oasis, Taraq Village, Rohan Oil, and Al Safwa Quarry.

The Gulag lets you tag-team with another player and battle against two others in a grimy prison where you can hide behind structures during the shootout. Real players that will be watching from the elevated sidelines can throw rocks at you when you are battling in the Gulag. You will be respawned in the game when you win. There’s also an alternate way to escape: by killing an AI enemy called The Jailer. You also have redemption here in case you get killed. Either your team can revive you by paying $4,500 or you can defeat another player in an afterlife prison.

The map’s large size is pretty helpful, too, as the death circle can now split into multiple circles before reducing in size and converging into a single circle come late-game. A cool additional feature is also the ability to “interrogate” downed enemies to reveal the location of their squadmates. Compared to Warzone, Warzone 2.0 doesn’t fully get rid of the previous title’s issues.

Modes of transportation

You have four mainland vehicles that you can use to explore the terrain, and one helicopter to travel in the air. The vehicles each have sets of perks that will determine the one you choose. The ATV is the quickest mode of transport but is also the least safe. With the ATV you can ride with another player at a faster pace with even more risk. The Rover is another fast yet unprotected vehicle that can hold four players.

The SUV lets four players ride in a more protected car at a slower pace. The slowest vehicle is the Cargo truck that can protect your entire team and equipment. The helicopter seats four people. 

How can I play Warzone for free?

Since death is not particularly punishing in Warzone, the game is relatively easy to play. The game begins with you in a plane above the map that labels each area. You can choose where to drop down to with a parachute. You will need to strategically cut yourself loose from your parachute when you get close enough to the ground. You are equipped with armor and a pistol when you first start. Your inventory lets you carry two guns at the same time. You can equip yourself with both one lethal and tactical equipment item. There are four weapon categories that are called common, epic, legendary, and rare.

The ever-encroaching toxic fog makes the game difficult and you can use gas masks to protect yourself from the lethal gas for a limited time. You can find cash in random places and Contracts are another way to earn money. You will get the money after you complete the objectives. Money lets you purchase items from the buy stations like armor, masks, weapons, and more. Buy stations are sporadically placed around the map. You can see your total balance in your account.

BR that is worth getting

Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 are both fun FPS games available to download and play for free. While they both have a large installation size of around 100 GB, they’re worth making space for if you’re fans of both the Call of Duty franchise and multiplayer genres like battle royale. Downloading them does not use any money from your wallet unless you want. You can even purchase microtransactions, such as battle passes.
