Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 launched on 16th November and a lot of players were unable to queue up with their friends. It was not a one-off instance where the social features were bugged out for a few players, but many of them were reporting this issue on launch day. Players then had to figure out a workaround until the issue was fixed by Activision and Infinity Ward. However, early on 18th November, Infinity Ward announced that it has rolled out a fix to resolve the social menu accessibility issue in Warzone 2.0.
You can now invite your friends in Warzone 2.0
After the release of Warzone 2.0 a couple of days ago and after hordes of complaints about players not being able to access the social menu, Infinity Ward has finally addressed the issue. It wrote on Twitter, “We’ve just deployed a fix that makes the Social menu accessible across #MWII and #Warzone2. Please restart your game if you continue to experience issues.”
This second entry in the Call of Duty battle royale (BR) series has exciting new features including a new map called Al Mazrah alongside a plethora of new weapons and operators from Modern Warfare 2. It also features the extraction shooter mode called DMZ (Demilitarized Zone).
In the DMZ mode, instead of dropping out of a plane, Operators are set to enter at random points around Al Mazrah, the new map. Notably, not every Operator will be completing the same tasks. While there are always faction missions to complete, there are also Contracts to find, events to encounter, and points of interest to explore, and all of these are usually marked on the Tac Map.
At any time during a DMZ match, players will have the option to exfiltrate. You can do this by calling in a helicopter transport at specific marked locations on the map. After you use all marked exfiltration locations, a final exfiltration point is revealed which is the last means of escape before the match is over.
Warzone 2.0 also has a revamped Gulag system. In the prequel, players had to fight another player in a 1v1 duel to see who gets to return to the field. Now, players will engage in a modified 2v2 scenario and the Gulag also features a new AI character called the Jailer.
Players will have a lot of content to explore and savor in the coming months as Warzone 2.0 can be paired with MW2 multiplayer mode. Though Warzone 2.0 is currently experiencing issues including latency and lag among other issues, players can expect to have a good time when all the problems are ironed out.
