Warzone 2 is best known for its chaotic and strategic battle royale gameplay with matches featuring players from around the world, but can you jump into a game using split-screen with two players locally?

Split-screen play may seem like a multiplayer mechanic from a bygone era, but many games in 2023 still employ some local co-op or split-screen function. Warzone 2 heavily emphasizes multiplayer, so it would only be logical to question the different ways you can enjoy the game.

With Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded coming to an end and Warzone Season 2 happening soon, new players are wondering if the CoD’s predominant choice for battle royale has a split-screen option.

Is Warzone 2 split-screen?

We’ll make this short and painless by confirming that Activision’s Call of Duty: Warzone 2 does not support split-screen play on any format.

Meaning that you can’t jump into a public match with a second player to compete in Duos or something similar, or create your own private match using bots at the very least.

Given that Modern Warfare 2 does give players the option of enjoying some of the game in split-screen, it does beg the question as to why it’s not also included in Warzone 2.

The devs have not addressed this at any point, so if the feature is going to be implemented at some point during the game’s lifecycle, we have a feeling it could be quite a while off until it happens.

But do not despair, it took some time, but leading FPS competitor Fortnite launched without split-screen before eventually adding in the feature later down the line.

We understand that this was probably not the news you were looking for, but we hope our guide cleared up any questions about split-screen functionality in Warzone 2.
