Top tips for winning your Warzone Gulag 1v1

Play to your loadout’s strengths

Make sure you play to the strengths of the loadout you have been given in Warzone‘s Gulag. If you have an SMG, keep in mind that you will need to be within range to do significant damage. There’s a wide variety of weaponry in Season 1, so make sure you’re aware of what’s in your hands when you spawn in.

Check which Equipment you have been given — things like grenades can be extremely handy in a 1v1, damaging your enemy without getting exposed or allowing you to escape from any challenging situation.

Improve your strategy

If you found a strategy that has worked for you, keep improving it each time you fight in Warzone’s Gulag. For example, if you like employing a specific route or patiently finding out where your opponent is, improve this strategy and sharpen in on the successful tactics.

Of course, you will need to shift your strategy to adjust to certain situations, but in general, sticking to what you know can be very rewarding.

Be smart but confident

Securing victory in Warzone’s 1v1 Gulag depends significantly on maintaining confidence. Occasionally, players may unintentionally grant their opponents an edge by showing excessive respect. While confidence is key, it’s equally important to approach the situation strategically rather than recklessly charging in with guns blazing.

Pick your time to push and be patient, sometimes playing confidently is about reading your opponent before making a move. If they seem eager to push, hold lines of sight to stop them. If they like to play more passively, take advantage of using the right angles and Equipment.
