Rumor : 200 Player Battle Royale Mode Coming to Call of Duty Modern Warfare

Chalk this one up as unexpected but welcome should it come to fruition. Courtesy of a PC data miner who has leaked correct Call of Duty information previously, there is a massive battle royale mode on the way for Modern Warfare. There’s a lot of info to go through, and you can find it all below.

As always, take it with a grain of salt until officially announced but given the history of this data miner, we felt it relevant to share. The information below can be found on the Modern Warfare Subreddit here.

Respawning

Respawn Tokens can be looted. After one use, Respawn Tokens are disabled for the player.

To respawn a teammate, obtain a Respawn Token, then drop their body near an Ambulance. Once the body is dropped at the Ambulance, the player will enter the Gulag queue for a chance to win a 1v1 and respawn into the match.

At some point during the match, the Gulag will be closed and no longer usable, thus preventing respawns.

Once a player has respawned, they must locate and activate a Mobile Armory to retrieve their loadout.

Missions

Battle Royale features Missions which can be looted via finding tablets. Only one Mission can be active for a Squad at a time.

​Mission Types

  • Timed Run
  • Assassination (Eliminate specific player)
  • Scavenger Hunt (Collect Scavenger Crates)
  • Domination (Capture Domination Point)

When a Mission is started or completed, the entire Squad will be notified by an on-screen message.

  • There is a minimum amount of Plunder required before depositing it into the Bank
  • Plunder dropped from eliminated enemies expires after some time
  • When players enter a Bank, the Bank Alarm will sound, alerting all enemies within the vicinity

Gulag

Gulag Prison Camp. 1 on 1, single round match. Win to respawn.

​When enabled, players will have a chance to respawn back into the match by winning a 1v1 fight.

The Gulag acts as a King of the Hill style gauntlet, meaning players in the Gulag Queue will spectate the players who are currently fighting in the Gulag. There will be a countdown on the screen indicating how many rounds are left until you fight.

A Jail Break happens every so often and kicks all players out of the Gulag and back into the match.

Players have the ability to place bets on the players who are fighting using Plunder.


Our Take

This is not only hugely interesting, but it would represent several new wrinkles into the Battle Royale formula. Blackout was a big hit in Black Ops 4 and with Modern Warfare being the best selling Call of Duty of this generation, we could see this really having an impact on the market.

Some of our editors play multiplayer regularly including hundreds of hours of PUBG, Blackout, Apex Legends, and more. So we certainly hope this is a real leak. In particular the Gulag and Plunder ideas sound incredible.
