New Warzone Bootcamp Mode Explained: Train Like a Pro, Battle Like a Beast

Feeling lost in the chaos of Call of Duty: Warzone? Fear not, recruits! Season 3 brings a brand new training mode – Bootcamp – launching on April 3, 2024. Let’s break down what this means for both seasoned veterans and fresh recruits.

What is Warzone Bootcamp?

Warzone throws a lot at you: intense firefights, tactical maneuvering, and a massive map to navigate. It can be brutal for newbies. Bootcamp offers a safe space to hone your skills. This mode lets you:

  • Get Familiar with the Game: Learn the ropes of Warzone in a less stressful environment. Experiment with weapons, equipment, and movement mechanics.
  • Build Confidence: Go toe-to-toe with a mix of real players and AI (bots) to gain confidence before diving into regular matches.
  • Practice Strategies: Squad up with friends or test your solo skills. Bootcamp is perfect for trying out new strategies and loadouts in a low-pressure setting.

While Bootcamp is a great way to train, there are some key differences from standard Warzone:

  • Limited Player Count: Matches feature 20 players and 24 bots, offering a more manageable battlefield compared to the full-fledged Warzone experience.
  • Focused Action: The action unfolds within a randomly selected section of the expansive Urzikstan map.
  • Limited Progression: While you can earn some XP for Player, Weapon, and Battle Pass progression, Bootcamp isn’t the place to complete Daily/Weekly Challenges, Weapon Camos, or the Champion’s Quest. Public Events and Advanced Contracts are also absent.

Even seasoned players can benefit from Bootcamp. It’s a perfect testing ground for experimenting with new weapon loadouts, practicing tactical maneuvers, or simply enjoying a more relaxed match without the constant threat of getting eliminated by skilled veterans.

So, whether you’re a Warzone newbie stepping onto the battlefield for the first time, or a seasoned operator looking to sharpen your skills, Bootcamp offers a valuable training ground to prepare for the ultimate battle royale experience.

It features intense first-person shooter combat with a variety of weapons and equipment to choose from.
