March 12, 2023: With Season Two Reloaded on the horizon, here's all the intel you need to master Resurgence.

Looking for a faster pace of play in Warzone 2? The return of an iconic mode might be what you're looking for. Sometimes, a standard match can take far too long which is where the Warzone 2 Resurgence mode comes into its own. Featuring a smaller map and a range of different mechanics, Resurgence tweaks the battle royale formula and cranks it up to create even more action.

If you're a hardened veteran of Warzone, the thought of dropping onto Rebirth Island or Fortune's Keep will bring fond memories back. For Season Two, Ashika Island makes its debut in addition to huge looting changes designed to speed up the gameplay even further.

Before we take a closer look at Resurgence, take a look at our guides highlighting the current Warzone 2 meta and the latest intel on when the next Warzone 2 double XP takes place.

What is Warzone 2 Resurgence?

Resurgence is a fresh take on the usual battle royale game structure. The goal of becoming the last one standing remains but instead of visiting the gulag, you'll have the ability to respawn just like in multiplayer.

The extra lives make all the difference and allow you to score a huge number of kills in the process.

Warzone 2 Resurgence playlists

Whether you're a lone wolf or have a squad ready for action, there are playlists to suit most squad sizes. Resurgence will have solo, duo, trio, and quads playlists.

Each playlist will have its own unique style, with solos potentially requiring more aggression while quads will need plenty of coordination and communication in order to secure the win.

How to win Warzone 2 Resurgence matches

Although there's an ability to respawn, winning a Resurgence match is exactly the same as winning a match in Al Mazrah. Simply become the last player standing to win.

It sounds incredibly straightforward but outlasting several opponents is always a tricky task.

Is Warzone 2 Resurgence worth playing?

Are you bored of campers waiting for you to smash open a door and shoot you in the back? The smaller map and the ability to respawn encourages a quicker pace meaning Resurgence provides fewer opportunities for campers to succeed.

The mode is an excellent alternative to the standard battle royale modes and once more limited-time modes make their way into the game, Ashika Island could become one of the greatest maps in Call of Duty history.
