February 8, 2023: Want easier lobbies ahead of Season Two? Follow these tips and tricks to give you the upper hand.

The Warzone 2 cycle is well underway and players are looking at how to get Warzone 2 bot lobbies. Skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) is present in the battle royale leaving some looking for ways to enter matches containing easier players.

Bot lobbies are filled with players with a low K/D ratio and those that haven't spent a lot of time playing the game. Joining bot lobbies might not be a fair tactic but there are plenty of high K/D players wanting to score plenty of kills over the course of a match.

Before we take a closer look at Warzone 2 bot lobbies, check out our guides showcasing our early thoughts on the Warzone 2 meta and a closer look at the Warzone 2 map.

Warzone 2 bot lobbies explained

Little is known about Warzone 2 bot lobbies but there's plenty of information on how they work from the first iteration of the game. Perhaps the most familiar way of accessing a bot lobby involves reverse boosting.

Several players deliberately bring their game to an early end to change their K/D ratio in order to enter the bot lobbies. It's a simple process but frowned upon by the majority of the community.

Warzone 2 VPN lobbies

Another way players attempt to access bot lobbies is through a VPN. Using a VPN allows players to select their location meaning they can avoid encountering high-skilled players based in Europe and North America.

Like reverse boosting, using a VPN is frowned upon by the community but it means you may find yourself scoring a huge number of kills worthy of a world record.

Is it worth using a Warzone 2 VPN?

Some may want to use a VPN in a bid to gain an advantage over the opposition but beating players with ease is far less enjoyable than managing to be the last one standing in a lobby full of skilled shooters.

If you're really struggling to score wins, it might be worth using a VPN but if you're more than capable of taking a trip to the winner's circle, it's best to avoid them and carry on playing the game as intended.

Warzone 2 season 1 start date
