For PC players, you have the choice between downloading Warzone 2 on Steam or Battlenet. This is a major change compared to the original Warzone, as you could only find it on Battlenet.

How Does Activision Make Money if Warzone 2.0 Is Free?

Activision makes money from selling a premium currency called COD Points. This currency allows players to buy store items like battle passes, bundles with premium Operators and Blueprints.

While Blueprints may give many players a headstart with new weapons, thanks to the instant unlock of attachments, you can still level up weapons in-game without paying any money.

This will be familiar to those who played Warzone, but there are plenty of changes in Warzone 2.0, including the removal of loadout drops.
