In addition to a brand new Snowball fight mode, Drop Zone also enters the field today in Modern Warfare. While the mode hasn’t been in the Call of Duty franchise since 2011, here are some tips and tricks to help give you an advantage.
You will want to take note of these tips as soon as possible, as the mode is only available for a limited time. The mode ends on December 31 at 10AM PT.
What is Drop Zone in Modern Warfare?
Drop Zone was originally a variation of a party game mode. Each Drop Zone will last for around a minute or so. The objective is to occupy this area with your team for as long as possible. If you manage to do so, you will have a Care Package delivered to your location.
Best Tips for MW Drop Zone
There are numerous different tips for the mode, so we have included the most useful ones below.
When you’re in the Drop Zone, you can bet your bottom dollar that all eyes will be on you. With this in mind, you’ll need to take cover using the equipment near you. You will usually be open to all angles, so you might want to scope in on the most likely area the enemies will come from.
Use a Deployable Shield or Riot Shield
One of the best ways to take cover is by deploying a shield, which you can get as a field upgrade. In addition to this, you can also use a Riot Shield to remain on the Drop Zone for longer without being killed.
Before diving straight on to the Drop Zone, you’ll want to have a scope around. You’ll be no help whatsoever if you die as soon as you enter the area.
Have One Player Who Stays Behind
If you’re playing tactical, you’ll want to have one player who sits at the back and picks players off one by one. This will prevent your allies from getting killed on the Drop Zone.
