After months of speculation, Call of Duty Warzone is finally here on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
A standalone Call of Duty title that’s free to download, Warzone comes with its very own 150-player Battle Royale mode.
Not just that, you can also play the brand new mode called Plunder, a race for cash on a huge scale. We’ve asked YouTube gaming star Spratt for his top tips to master the brand new mode, Plunder.
Spratt is one of the best Call of Duty snipers in the world and his skills have gained him over 1.1 million subscribers on YouTube. Spratt (@Spratt on Twitter) was one of the first people in the world to get hands on with Call of Duty: Warzone at Infinity Ward’s studio a few weeks ago.
He was lucky enough to play hours of Plunder and discovered some game winning tactics during that time. Now he’s sharing them to help you master this brand new mode.
1. REMEMBER TO BANK YOUR CASH
My number one tip is to make sure you visit the cash deposit helipad and safely secure the plunder you’ve earned. It’s easy to get distracted by contracts, enemy players and the constant action, but you should pay close attention to the amount of money you’re carrying. Every time you’re eliminated you lose a percentage of your money, so the best way to keep this safe is to store it at a cash deposit point.
Once you’ve deposited your money at a helipad it will be banked, meaning you can’t lose it. There is nothing worse than being the team in the lead, having collected so much plunder to then be eliminated over and over again losing the lead you had just built. If you secure it at a deposit helipad you’ve eliminated that risk. Just keep in mind, other players will know when you’ve called in the deposit helicopter, so they might have their eyes set on it and be waiting for you.
2. PLAN YOUR STRATEGY
The fun thing about Plunder is that you can play it in so many different ways. You could decide you want to earn your cash by completing contracts, taking out enemies or just looting around the map. Whilst some players will go all guns blazing, racking up kills and cash, there is always another tactic that you could play.
You could set up an ambush as a trio, placing yourselves around the deposit points and waiting for unsuspecting enemies who try to bank their cash. Your team could all split up and focus on contracts, building up cash by completing the missions and reaping the rewards. Discuss as a team how you want to play and put that plan into action – mix it up so you get a different experience every time.
3. REVENGE IS SWEET
Let’s face it, we all love to get revenge in video games. This will be the same in Plunder. If someone has just stolen all of your money the instant reaction will usually be “I’m going to go get it back”. That great feeling you receive when you get that sweet, sweet payback.
It’s easy to forget, that guy you just eliminated and stole his cash, he’ll be wanting to do the same. One thing to always keep in mind is that eventually someone will want to get revenge on you.
If you’ve won a fight and secured yourself a nice amount of money, get yourself out of there. Grab a vehicle and move to a new location, run as far as you can away from where you just were. You’ll have around 15 seconds to make your move before the enemy drops back in, so don’t get stuck in a circle of revenge!
