Plunder Could Be Returning to Warzone, Map Glitch Suggests

warzone 2 plunder mode

There’s a chance that Plunder could be making a valiant return to Warzone if one particular map glitch is to be believed. Last seen in August, Plunder was an alternate game mode first introduced in Call of Duty Warzone in 2020, giving players the opportunity to drop in, loot large sums of cash, and fight while constantly respawning.

Until now, there have been no suggestions that Plunder will feature in Warzone 2.0, which already boasts something of a similar mode in DMZ. However, in a very short clip uploaded to YouTube, a map glitch is revealed that seems to urge the player to ‘CALL IN A CASH DEPOSIT HELI’, which was one of the most practical mechanics in Plunder.

Does Anybody Want Plunder to Return?

Plunder was far from being a fan favourite, but it was something different.

At present, Call of Duty Warzone fans are busy exploring Al Mazrah in both the battle royale and the DMZ modes that launched on November 16th. There’s nothing really stopping Infinity Ward and Raven Software from introducing a Plunder mode to the Warzone 2.0 platform, but is it even wanted?

Back in the day, Plunder was seen as being the ‘baby’ game mode, giving players the ability to drop into Verdansk while still having a respawn mechanic that wasn’t necessarily present in the core battle royale modes. When they’d landed in Verdansk, the fundamental mission was to loot as much cash as possible (and steal it from other players), with the ultimate vision of becoming the richest player on the map.

In August, three months before Warzone 2.0 dropped, Plunder was removed from the first Warzone platform. It was a change that went relatively unnoticed, and now that it could be on the table for a return, fans just aren’t all that impressed.

On YouTube, user ‘tiktokalnuke’ posted a short clip revealing the aforementioned map glitch:

It’s Time for a Pinch of Salt

Of course, there’s nothing to back up the claim that Plunder is making a grand return, even if that glitch does suggest that it will. It’s just a bug, at the end of the day, and it could be completely disconnected from Plunder.

For the players currently enjoying Warzone 2.0’s DMZ mode, the introduction of Plunder might not make any sense. In DMZ, the objective is to enter Al Mazrah, loot high-value items and cash, engage in fights and contracts, and then leave successfully. It’s all about picking up the most valuable items and stashing the most cash, quite like Plunder.

At present, there are no official suggestions that new game modes are yet to arrive on the Warzone 2.0 platform. For some, this could nothing more than a quantity-over-quality content effort by the developers, but who knows?

  1. If plunder was not a fan favourite why were lobbies always full, secondly it was noticed when removed as there was a huge outcry,
    From my experience people played plunder to engage with other teams and the fact u could respawn in after dying added to that, not everyone Likes the gulag and Br, for those of us living in the more remote areas BR was not an option due to a ping of 400+, I for one would love it to return and I think I speak for many others
    DMZ is quite honestly boring just lots and lots of bots,
    We play online to fight other players not robotic A1

  2. Removing plunder was a big mistake , I wish another rival can create a plunder to make the nich exposed.
