We introduced the new Call of Duty: Warzone the other day, but now here’s a new mode from Activision for their most popular FPS game yet. The free-to-play battle royale game has a new way to play with the addition of Solos, a mode that’s pretty much the same as the original in terms of gameplay and map design. Except now it’s every man for himself in this ultimate FPS showdown.
The game is mechanically mostly the same. Players are dropped onto the map from a plane with only a basic pistol and some bullets just to survive the first encounters. Then they can look for weapons, do contracts, or acquire intel. The game has kept all of the good things that made this new royale spinoff so much popular than other games of the same genre.
Take Verdansk on by yourself.

Tips and tricks
Activision shared a top 5 tips for this new game mode, in their blog post:
- Going Solo? Intel is Your Best Teammate. Awareness at all times is the key in this game, so the more information you have and equip a wide variety of tools as monitor that detects heartbeats or drones that find other players from the air, the closer you are to the victory.
- Same Gulag. Same Player Count. No Buybacks. You are on your own, you have one life on the map, and a chance to redeem yourself in the Gulag. So use it wisely.
- Consider Picking Up Contracts. Contracts are really important tools. Pick them up as soon as you find them because they give money that you can use to buy better equipment or tools that can help you get on the top!
- … and Stay Down. For example, Self-Revive Kits can be your savior or your doom in Solos. When you down an enemy, make sure they are down for good. They can self-revive and punish you.
- Learn from Your Solos. Get as much experience from the Solo mode. It can help you later when your friends call to play some Squads together. Practice your aim, your positioning or even camping (nobody likes that).
Meanwhile, the game gained huge popularity on the first day of its launch, exceeding over six million players in that time table. It’s free, its fun, and now (if none of your friends are online) you can play it solo. To sum it up, there is no reason not to try it and shoot your way to the top.
