Details about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare‘s rumored battle royale mode, Warzone, continue to leak. The latest details come from the Twitter user @CaptainBadfoot who claims they were randomly tossed into the Warzone lobby where the “training” mode is available alongside new menus that reveal some of what to expect from the mode.
A video from the training mode shows that Warzone will reportedly include a version of the “ping” system that Apex Legends popularized, and Fortnite later added. The Twitter user also found screens that shows there will be a “Trios” variant where three people play together as they fight to be the last team standing. Warzone will also reportedly feature solo, doubles, and quads.
He also posted an image of a screen that shows the vehicles that will be available in Warzone, which include ATVs, SUVs, helicopters, cargo trucks, and tactical rovers.
He said he glitched into the Warzone menu after playing the new multiplayer map, Rust. Unfortunately for CaptainBadfoot, this story has a sad ending. He said he was permanently banned from Modern Warfare in the wake of these leaks.
I’m still in the lobby but can only do the training session. It gives the option to ‘fill’ or ‘dont fill’ the squad, but pressing either does nothing right now. pic.twitter.com/tj2iXe3Ctz

Another ongoing rumor is that Warzone will be a battle royale mode inside Modern Warfare as well as a free-to-play standalone game that everyone can download and access. Everything related to this is unconfirmed at this stage, as Activision has made no official announcements.
A battle royale mode is all but surely coming to Modern Warfare, as the Season 2 opening cinematic pretty much confirmed this. Also, the Modern Warfare title screen has been updated with a section called “Classified,” which is presumably a placeholder for Warzone.
Modern Warfare already has a large-scale mode in the form of Ground War, which supports 64 players. Before launch, Infinity Ward teased that the game could support a 100-player mode at some point, and now it seems it’s happening with a battle royale mode.
