As Call of Duty: Warzone continues to grow and change, there are many new game modes that have been added to the game. One of the most popular modes is Plunder, which has remained a staple ever since the game released earlier this year. Season 4 has decided to make a few interesting changes to the mode with Blood Money, which is a much more aggressive variant on the classic Plunder style. This guide is here to give players a few tips on improving their skills at the updated game mode.

Call of Duty: Warzone - The Biggest Change from Plunder
The most important thing to keep in mind while paying Blood Money is that players can now earn money just by killing other players. In the standard game mode players drop a percentage of their cash upon death that can then be picked up other players in the game. In Blood Money though, players will automatically have their cash amount go up for every kill, even if the player killed has no money on them. This makes the game mode a lot more aggressive, as players now have even more incentive to rack up kills.
Call of Duty: Warzone - Don't Be Careless
Since players will automatically respawn upon death, Blood Money is a lot more forgiving of death than a typical battle-royale game. Just because players have unlimited respawns doesn't mean they should play carelessly though. Players lose half of their current cash for every death, which means that dying can knock a highly ranked team out of the running in no time. Players should play more aggressively than they normally would, but remember that there are still repercussions for dying.
Players should never move around in open areas and instead should try to move inside buildings to progress through the map. If that isn't an option, then it is a good idea to snag a vehicle to safely move away from populated areas, or even hole up in a safe place and play defensively.
Call of Duty: Warzone - Pick up Contracts to Earn Cash Fast
While players can pick money up from chests or from the bodies of fallen enemies, the best way to earn money is by completing contracts. Contracts are extremely lucrative in this game mode, and some can even earn players tens of thousands of dollars. Collecting intel may not be as fun as getting headshots on enemy players, but it's a lot safer and gives out a lot more cash.
Players should probably avoid the Most Wanted contract unless they are very skilled at the game. This contract will mark the player on the map for all enemy players to see. While it does give out a major amount of cash, it's not quite worth having to fight off a dozen squads to complete it.
Call of Duty: Warzone - Deposit Cash At the Right Time
The trick to any game of Blood Money is knowing when to deposit cash. Depositing can take up valuable time that could be spent looting for more money, but getting killed with a lot of cash on hand can set a team back considerably. A good rule of thumb is to deposit cash around every $150,000-200,000. If players are carrying more than that, then they are taking a huge risk. Any less than that is just a waste of time that could be better spent finding more money.
Call of Duty: Warzone - Cash Balloons Are Your Friend
The most frustrating thing that can happen in a game of Blood Money is being killed by an enemy player while trying to deposit your cash in a helicopter. These areas are hotspots for other players with some trying to deposit their own cash, or others deciding to camp and kill any poor souls who enter the area. A great way to avoid this is to go to a Buy Station and purchase a cash balloon. This piece of equipment will allow players to store up to $180,000 before floating off into the sky. It doesn't allow for huge deposits, but it will at least get a sizable portion of cash in the bank and away from other greedy players.
Call of Duty: Warzone - Forget About Other Players in Overtime
If overtime hits that means that one team has already hit the $1 million mark. The game is over though, and players will still be trying to earn enough cash to top the number-one team. This isn't easy to do, but the best goal in overtime is to ignore all enemy players and go after the attack helicopters instead. By bringing one of these down, players will receive $200,000. By bringing down a few of them in quick succession a top-10 team can very easily overtake the number-one spot.
