When is Plunder returning to Warzone 2? That's a question on the minds of players looking for an alternative to the standard battle royale modes in Season 3 Reloaded. The Plunder mode in Warzone 2 doesn't involve attempting to become the last one standing. Instead, you drop in and attempt to earn cash by completing objectives and scoring kills.

The mode first appeared in the first iteration of Warzone and since then, it's become a staple but due to regular playlist updates, the mode often disappears. Thankfully, we've got all the intel on when Plunder is coming back.
