Introducing Solos to Call of Duty®: Warzone

Battle Royale Solos, the newest mode in Call of Duty: Warzone, is an option for players who are true mercenaries and only want to carry themselves across Verdansk.

Here’s a quick breakdown of this new mode.

The Basics

In Solos, you drop into Verdansk alone with Battle Royale rules. That means no squadmates, no friends – only you and a pistol with a few bullets.

As you loot, complete Contracts, and survive against up to 149 other players, the circle collapse will roll in. The Gulag will still welcome in prisoners of the Warzone, but if you die in that 1v1 Gunfight, you’re out for good.

The last Operator standing wins.

Solo Strategy

In Solos, every decision determines life or death.

This begins at infiltration. Watch the top right corner to see how many players are dropping in and look for red smoke trails. If you’re looking for a fight, follow those trails. If not, try landing in more remote places to build your loadout before taking on other players.

When you hit the ground, intel becomes the most powerful weapon for survival. Along with paying attention to the Tac Map and Compass, be especially thorough about finding, and equipping, reconnaissance tools such as the Recon Drone, Heartbeat Monitor, and UAV (purchased at Buy Stations).

You can also still buy Self-Revive Kits or find them in Verdansk. Keep this in mind when fighting other Operators and always ensure you have a confirmed kill before turning your attention towards the next firefight. With only your senses and your HUD to rely on, a Solos match offers a trial-by-fire that can provide plenty of learning experiences for your future drops.

Top 3 Tips for Solos

3. Same Gulag. Same player count. No buybacks. You only have one life to live in Solos. Make it count, both in the Gulag and out in Verdansk.

2. Consider picking up Contracts. This especially goes for Recon Contracts, as in Solos, the station capture time is halved compared to other modes. Complete Contracts and get Cash to further build up your loadout at Buy Stations.

1. Learn from your Solos. While you may have less of a chance at winning Solos, take the lessons you learn into your next game with the squad. Who knows? A few Solos matches could be the difference between losing your next Battle Royale trios game and a hard-fought victory.
