Earn your loadout quickly

The days of searching for cash and buying a loadout drop are long gone in Warzone 2. Instead, there are numerous ways to get your hands on your favourite gun during a match.

Strongholds are the best places to visit. These AI-controlled areas allow you to earn a loadout by defeating a handful of soldiers. The task takes a minimal amount of time allowing you to grab your loadout and continue hunting other squads quickly.

Completing contracts

Just like the first iteration of Warzone, Warzone 2 features numerous contracts that come with a variety of XP rewards. One contract that's guaranteed to assist your progress through a match is the bounty.

Bounties highlight the location of nearby players and offer huge cash rewards which come in handy when looking to buy some extra items from a buy station.

UAVs are key

UAVs in the early and late stages of a Warzone 2 match are excellent streaks to gain the upper hand on your way to victory. For a small period of time, you can see the locations of anyone not using Ghost or isn't moving around the map.

Choosing to avoid them is the conservative approach but you can always attempt to eliminate them to stop them from affecting your run into the winner's circle.

Master the gulag

The Warzone 2 gulag undergoes huge changes in Al Mazrah. Rather than a straight fight to see who redeploys, you'll join forces with another player to face off against another random duo for a second chance at the win.

You can choose to take down the opposition to win the gulag or wait for the jailer to appear. Defeating the jailer sends everyone back into action so choose your options wisely.

Stay on top of the meta

Thanks to regular doses of weapon balancing, the Warzone 2 meta is bound to change on a regular basis in order to maintain plenty of variety in the loadouts of players. Despite the best efforts of Infinity Ward, some guns will always stand out from the crowd.

The best way to determine the meta is seeing what other players are using in their loadout. Are they dominating with the TAQ-56? Is the SP-X 80 a viable option? Only time will tell.

Follow these handy tips and you'll score plenty of Warzone 2 wins in no time at all. For more on the battle royale, check out our guides highlighting the best Warzone 2 marksman rifle and the latest intel on the next Warzone 2 double XP event.
