Overview

Pre-Game Preparation

From the Play to Weapons menus and everything thereafter, this section deals with six of the most important menus you’ll see before loading into a Warzone match.

“Keep it tight people. Ready weapons. Move up.” – Capt. John "Soap" MacTavish, Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2

If you’ve read the previous guide chapter, you should know the basics of playing Warzone. Now let’s get you in a game.

From the main menu, hover over to the Warzone column and hit Select. For those with the free version, you’ll usually have Warzone and the Store to choose from. If you have the full Call of Duty: Modern Warfare experience, you can also pick the Campaign, Multiplayer, or Co-Op modes as well.

Once you select Warzone, you’ll be taken to the Pre-Game Lobby, which has six submenus: Play, Weapons, Operators, Barracks, Battle Pass, and Store.

This section of the guide details all six of those menus in detail, here’s a quick summary of what they are and what we’ll cover:

Play: This is where you choose a game mode. Learn more here.

Weapons – This is where you edit a Loadout Drop, select a watch, and view your Armory. This section also details strategies for everything that is included with a Loadout Drop – weapons, perks, and equipment – most of which is also available as in-game loot. Learn more here.

Operators – This is where you choose an operator. This is your in-game avatar that you can customize with skins, quips, and Finishing Moves. Learn more here.

Barracks – This is where you can see and activate Missions & Challenges, customize your Identity, and see your Rank Progression and Records. Learn more here.

Battle Pass – This is where the Battle Pass system, a tiered content system that has a free tiers and tiers that require purchase of the Battle Pass. Visit this menu to see your current progress within the Battle Pass system. Whenever you have a gold diamond icon next to the name of the menu, there is something new for you to see here. Learn more here.

Store – This is where you can purchase bundles, Call of Duty League™ team packs, and upgrade to the full Modern Warfare experience. Like the Battle Pass, a gold diamond icon will appear next to here if there is something new in the Store for you. Learn more here.
