It’s time to step up your game up in Call of Duty Warzone. No more skulking around to survive until the final circle to get picked off as soon as things begin to heat up, it’s time to get into some firefights and level up your skill.


We asked Warzone extraordinaire JoeWo for his top tips to improve at Warzone and he had three tips that he believes will help any player at any level start to see improvement if they implement his tips into their games.


Players can get caught up in what their account K/D ratio is in Warzone. JoeWo warns that caring more about your stats than your improvement as a player is the number one hold up to becoming a better player. Hiding throughout a match and picking up a safe kill or two before getting eliminated or winning won’t make you a better player. Throw your stats out the window because the path to becoming a top player is bumpy and requires you to push yourself into unfavorable match-ups, difficult gunfights, and lose plenty of matches. Take a slice of humble pie and prepare to push yourself if you want to become a better player


It's time to dive into some hot drops. JoeWo believes the only way you’re going to improve your gunplay is through getting comfortable in gunfights. The only way to do that is by exposing yourself to as many gunfights as you can. Your focus should be less on getting a win and more and trying to fit as many gunfights into a match as possible. Hot drops are essential, rotating into enemy teams even when the match-up isn’t in your favor, and getting out of your comfort zone by queueing up in solo duos is what is going to really push your skill to the next level. Every gunfight is an opportunity to push your skill further, if you take the L use it as a learning experience and be sure to think on how you could have approached that fight to turn it around. To get better you need to go into your matches ready to push yourself to play better then your last match and soon enough you’ll be racking up 20+ kill games.


JoeWo’s third tip for improving at Warzone is to learn the map. This comes with playing more games, but the important part here is making sure you’re dropping in new places as often as possible when you first start playing. Once you know the major locations well enough you take that knowledge one step further and start learning the best advantageous areas around the map. Knowing where and where not to fight is essential for bettering your Warzone gameplay and on maps as big as Verdansk and Caldera there is always room for improvement on your map knowledge. To sum it up, ignore your stats, getting too hung up on them will keep you from improving, fight as many gunfights as possible in your games to push yourself out of your comfort zone, and learn the map so you always know the lay of the land so you have an advantage going into your gunfights.
