Warzone 2 players are looking to test their mettle in a ranked mode so here’s everything we know about Ranked Play for Warzone 2 including what the devs have said so far and what it might look like.

Almost all of the top battle royale games such as Apex Legends, PUBG, and Fortnite have a ranked mode where the most dedicated players can battle players of similar skill and climb the ranks.

The feature has been notably missing from Warzone, but players are hoping it’ll finally arrive in Warzone 2. Here’s everything we know about Ranked Play for Warzone 2, and what it might look like.

Is Warzone 2 getting a ranked mode?

Although it hasn’t been mentioned since, Infinity Ward brought up Ranked Play for Warzone 2 at the Call of Duty Next event.

“We’ve been listening to the conversations in the community, specifically about small maps, RICOCHET anti-cheat, Ranked Play, and beyond,” said Infinity Ward’s Director of Communications Stephanie Snowden while discussing Warzone 2. “There will be more news to share over the coming months.”

That was the last we heard about a ranked mode for Warzone 2, but it wasn’t the first. Back in March 2022, streamer TeeP asked Warzone Creative Lead Josh Bridge if the goal is to get to a ranked mode, and he said: “Yes. We just want to make sure we do it right. We don’t take it lightly so we’re evaluating it.”

Bridge said that they are “absolutely taking it seriously” and it’s “something we need for sure.”

Is there a Warzone 2 ranked mode release date?

There isn’t a Warzone 2 ranked mode release date yet as Bridge couldn’t offer a date back in March, and Infinity Ward haven’t mentioned the mode since Call of Duty Next.

We’d expect Warzone 2’s Ranked Mode to arrive in either a season or mid-season update in 2023, but it’s impossible to predict anything more precise.

What could a Warzone 2 ranked mode look like?

The most likely blueprint for a Warzone 2 ranked mode is the Iron Trials and Titanium Trials modes from the original game.

Titanium Trials raised player health to a whopping 300 and slowed down health regeneration, making gun skill and accuracy extremely important. Loadout Drops were more expensive but the price dropped as the match progressed, and ground loot was significantly better.

Iron Trials and Titanium Trials were very similar but instead, Iron Trials had 250 HP, fewer vehicles and Killstreaks, and more expensive Buy Stations.

As for the ranks, we’d expect it to be similar to Modern Warfare 2’s Ranked Play which arrives at some point in 2023. Leaks claim it’ll have ranks going from Bronze to Irridescent, as well as a Top 250 leaderboard.

Players should gain points for kills with a multiplier applied to the placement, similar to the format used in tournaments such as the World Series of Warzone.
