Warzone 2 DMZ barter recipes

The Barter system allows you to exchange items to get better gear in Warzone DMZ, so if you’re looking for Barter recipes, here’s all you need to know.

While Warzone is experiencing its Season 2 approaching the mid-season update, Activision confirmed in November 2023, that DMZ will not receive any content updates going forward.

Launching DMZ will take you to the MW2 platform, and Season 6 was the last content update for the mode. In Warzone’s DMZ mode, you can use a Barter System involving the Buy Stations on Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, and Vondel. This lets you exchange items to survive longer on the battlefield. To trade items, you’ll need specific crafting materials across different locations.

We’ll go over how to use the Barter System in Warzone DMZ.

How to use Barter System in DMZ

Warzone DMZ’s Barter system can be accessed after heading to a Buy Station and selecting the Barter tab. This system delivers a whole menu that you can use to easily acquire high-value assets, like weapons, gear, and other items that can be purchased for cash.

To trade using the Barter system, you need to follow the below-mentioned steps:

  1. Before trading, players need to first head to any Buy Station in DMZ.
  2. Players will find the Barter tab in the fourth slot.
  3. Once you click on it, the Barter tab will show a unique list of items with precise recipes.
  4. After this, you will need to gather those specific items from the recipes to trade essential equipment such as plate carriers, backpacks, weapons, keys, and more.
  5. After you have secured the recipe items, take them to any Buy Station.
  6. Players need to click on the Barter tab and select the respective items by exchanging the collected recipe materials.

Crafting these items will help players survive longer in DMZ matches but make sure to visit Buy Stations in squads as players often camp them for easy kills.

That’s all the Barter recipes in DMZ that you can have by trading these items.
