If you're one of the many Call of Duty: Warzone players fuming at the lack of a duos mode in the game, you may not have much longer to fret. Activision has once again proven its sterling ability to keep secrets by accidentally leaking (and then hastily deleting) an image suggesting Duos may be on its way to Warzone soon.
Call of Duty: Warzone's recent Season 3 update has been controversial among players. If you wanted to play Warzone with another player prior to the update, you'd need to enter into the Trios mode, which usually meant you were unfairly put with a random and against various teams of three - at least some of which were actually three co-operating people. For some reason, Activision removed this mode in the Season 3 update and replaced it with Quads, which doesn't seem to have fixed the problem. If you had a trio prior to the update, you'll need to find another player or fill your squad space with a random person. The problem of mismatched numbers hasn't gone away, either; if you're a trio, you'll now find yourself up against squads of four instead.
This decision has been met with justifiable anger on the part of the Call of Duty: Warzone player base. If the leaked Activision image is to be believed, then the new Duos mode could address some of those problems, although it still raises the question of what trios are now supposed to do. Still, a Duos mode would go some way towards healing the damage caused by Activision's rather odd decisions in the latest Warzone update.
We don't yet know exactly when Duos will be appearing in Call of Duty: Warzone. It's not likely to be too long until the next update, especially given that many fans have been clamoring for the ability to pair up with a single friend. Activision and Infinity Ward will likely want to engage in damage limitation and release the update sooner rather than later, so you likely won't have long to wait for Duos. Here's hoping, anyway.
Call of Duty: Warzone is the standalone battle royale mode for modern military FPS Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It's available to download for free on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, regardless of whether you own Modern Warfare or not. The 150-player battle royale's unique mechanics include the Gulag, where fallen players can battle each other for a shot at revival, and Contracts, missions that give you and your squad a shot at earning some in-game rewards.
