Warzone 2 players have been enjoying the third-person perspective in the battle royale, but for those unfamiliar with the mode who want to know more, here’s our guide on how to play with the new over-the-shoulder view.

Modern Warfare 2 has brought a lot of innovation to the Call of Duty franchise, and this influence has carried over to Warzone 2 thanks to their dual integration into each other.

Things like the new Gunsmith and Weapon Tuning system have made a big impact in Warzone 2, as well as a new way to progress through the Battle Pass and a brand-new Backpack looting system – which has had a mixed reception, to say the least.

What is third-person mode in Warzone 2?

Quite simply, third-person mode is like your standard battle royale formula, rules, and presets, the only discernible difference is that you get an over-the-shoulder, third-person perspective that allows you to see all of your Operator and more of the environment.

This leads to more interesting confrontations as it gives players the chance to spot an enemy compared to how they would normally – giving fights a different edge.

Additionally, it’s also a handy game mode for users who’ve spent CoD Points on new skins as they finally get to see them in action.

How to play third-person mode in Warzone 2

When the option is available, players can select the third-person playlist and ready up to play the Warzone 2 third-person mode just like any other Warzone game mode.

For example:

  1. Launch Warzone 2
  2. Head to the ‘Play’ tab of the menu
  3. Find the ‘Battle Royale’ section
  4. Navigate to the right until you find a 3rd person BR mode

By the looks of it, the third-person mode will come in different forms in CoD Warzone 2. While it’s previously been a Trios playlist, we could see it function as a Solos, Duos, Quads, or maybe even another whacky Warzone LTM playlist in the future.
