Warzone 2 gulag

The gulag has undergone a huge transformation in Warzone 2. Rather than a 1v1 duel to drop back into the action, the gulag now features 2v2 battles where players need to loot and eliminate their opponents to win. Loot will remain with the winning team as they drop back into the game.

Alternatively, players can find The Jailer, an AI soldier. The Jailer holds a key that players can use to earn their second chance.
