Activision is bringing back the classic 1v1 gulag for Warzone 2.0 with the upcoming season two launch on February 15. This change follows the much-requested alterations to loadout drops, and is sure to please fans who were unhappy with the 2v2 gulag and the Jailer mechanic. Replies to the announcement on Twitter were overwhelmingly positive, with many expressing relief and gratitude. Though the 2v2 gulag was an interesting social dynamic, it had some pain points such as unreliable communication and the possibility of unfair 2v1 scenarios. It will be missed by some, but the return of the classic 1v1 gulag is sure to make the Warzone experience more enjoyable for many.
With season two of Warzone 2.0 arriving on February 15, Activision is making some major changes to the popular battle royale. Most notably, the gulag will now be returning to its original 1v1 format, rather than the 2v2 version that was introduced with the game’s 2.0 update. This change has been met with much enthusiasm from the community, who have been requesting it ever since the 2.0 update.
The gulag is a unique feature in Warzone, allowing players to jump back into the action after being killed by another player early in the game. In the 2v2 gulag, players were paired up with a random player and had to battle it out to win their way back to the main map. Halfway through the match, a high-damage-output NPC called “the Jailer” would emerge. If the Jailer was defeated, both teams redeployed. However, the 2v2 gulag had some pain points such as unreliable communication and the possibility of unfair 2v1 scenarios.
It appears that Activision has taken the community’s feedback to heart, as the 1v1 gulag is set to make a return in season two. On Twitter, the announcement was met with much joy, with many expressing relief and gratitude. Though the 2v2 gulag was an interesting social dynamic, the return of the classic 1v1 gulag is sure to make the Warzone experience more enjoyable for many.
The upcoming season two launch of Warzone 2.0 will also bring with it some other changes, such as much-requested alterations to loadout drops. With the return of the classic 1v1 gulag, players will be able to enjoy the Warzone experience without the pain points that the 2v2 gulag brought.
