When Can You Expect New Playlist Updates In Warzone 2 & MW2?

Every Thursday at 10:00 PT (13:30 ET/ 18:00 GMT), the Call of Duty premium game and Warzone will receive fresh playlist updates. However, new events and seasonal releases frequently break these periods, so use them as a guideline rather than a strict plan.

We haven’t seen enough playlist upgrades in Warzone 2 or Modern Warfare 2 to know with certainty when to anticipate them. We’ll keep an eye on both games’ update schedules and let you know if anything changes as soon as we do.

Warzone Modes Explained

Battle Royale

Well…yeah, have you played Warzone? Okay, sorry, I sound like a d*ck. This is the standard Warzone mode, usually you can play it in teams of one, two, three, or four, and the aim is to survive in a slowly shrinking area. You don’t have respawns, but you do get one opportunity when you die to fight in the gulag, and if you win your fight you can redeploy to the map. Otherwise, one of your teammates can pay for you to respawn at a buy station (if they’re still alive).
The only BR map available is called Al Mazrah but more will be released eventually.

Modern Warfare 2 Ground War Modes Explained

Ground War

In the 32 against 32 mode known as “Ground War,” teams struggle to seize and hold onto five different objectives in a big game of dominance. Large maps are used to play this mode.

Although some of the maps are located in Mexico, the majority are on the new Al Mazrah map. This has given rise to rumours regarding a Mexican BR map centred on Las Almas.


On the same maps as Ground War, 20 v 20 Team Deathmatches called Invasion are played.

In contrast, each team in Invasion has a force of bots supporting them. Here’s how invasion works:

Prison Rescue

For fans of Ground War, this mode has so far been quite well-liked.

Prison Rescue is a no-respawn scenario that allows revives (similar to Cyber Attack in MW2019). Being the first to 500 points is the goal of the game, and each round you will either be on the attacking side or the defending side (which side your team is on alternates every 2 rounds).

The attackers must release hostages and return them to their spawn location during each round in order to score points. Defenders must prevent them from doing this. We love the mode, and it plays like a SnD-lite.


You should employ the current meta loadouts to succeed because Prison Rescue plays as a more competitive mode, akin to Search and Destroy:

In Knockout, revives are available but there are no respawns, exactly like in Prison Rescue. However, in this mode, teams must pick up a neutral bag in the centre of the map to start a countdown, and they must hold onto the bag until the duration expires.

3rd Person Moshpit

Even if it’s straightforward, the mode doesn’t really work since when you pick up the bag, everyone can see where you are, which gives you a significant disadvantage. As a result, it’s ideal for both teams to simply ignore the bag and play TDM-style.

We’re hoping for more 3rd-person modes to be added in the next playlist update. | Activision

Hardpoint, Headquarters, Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Team Deathmatch are all included in this mode, but everyone is viewing the action from a third-person perspective. Unless you use a scope with a 3x magnification or higher to zoom in, the camera will stay in third person. It seems quite slick:

Quickplay / Classic Modes

Anyone who has been grinding for too long and needs a little change of pace is encouraged to use this mode.

You also have your standard Quickplay, which is all the standard 6v6 variants. You can restrict the game modes that appear in Quickplay.

  • Team Deathmatch
  • Free-For-All
  • Kill Confirmed
  • Hardpoint
  • Headquarters
  • Domination
  • Search and Destroy
  • Prison Rescure
  • Knockout

Here are the traditional Quickplay game modes that are available:

quite similar to the good old days.

And that, my friends, is your update on all the modes you can play this week. Did you want the playlist update? Or do you still find the campaign enjoyable?
