There’s always something new going on in the world of Call of Duty Warzone. There are changes to the map, new maps, new guns as time goes on, and the meta changes based on how Raven are feeling that day. But, now a fan favourite is back in the form of Call of Duty Warzone Iron Trials and we’re here for it.
Call of Duty Warzone Iron Trials is being reintroduced into the battle royale game for Season 5, which launches ahead of Modern Warfare 2 later this year. We don’t know how that game will shake up the meta either, so enjoy Iron Trials while you can.
Below, you’ll find all you need to know about the mode’s resurgence and implementation into Warzone, as well as details on what Iron Trials mode actually entails.
Call of Duty Warzone Iron Trials
The Iron Trials is a Call of Duty Warzone game mode that changes the standard balancing of health and damage and makes a return for Season 5. Player health is increased two-fold, but health regeneration doesn’t kick in as quickly either, meaning you can take more damage, but you’ll want to find a nice hiding spot to recover your health in case enemies decide to push.
In this mode, match duration is also increased and the only available vehicles are ATVs – everything else has been removed.
Another change over the standard way of playing is that loadout drops are no longer free; you have to buy them at a pay station. However, in Iron Trials, the money you retain on death is increased, meaning the long-term saver will benefit.
Winning a fight in the Gulag redeploys you with the weapons you obtained therein, meaning no fancy goodies to drop in with either.
Raven has this to say: “Loadout Drops are still a major key to winning Rebirth Iron Trials, and they can use any weapons, from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® to Vanguard. Completing Contracts and earning Kills are just as important for earning money here as they are in regular Warzone, so pool together Cash with your Duo to gain this massive stepping stone to victory.”
