There’s a new Warzone 2 movement trick making the rounds online that makes it possible to use Armor Plates while running.

Generally, Warzone 2.0 is being seen as a huge improvement over Warzone Caldera. The map is on-par or better than Verdansk, its visuals are the nicest we’ve seen from Activision yet, and the gunplay feels great.

However, there are some major issues with Warzone 2 that are garnering criticism online. One popular complaint is that the new Battle Royale removed the ability to plate up on the go, meaning players have to hide in a corner in order to refill their armor.

Thankfully, there’s a new workaround that’s quick and easy to use:

How to Equip Armor Plates While Running in Warzone 2

Warzone 2 players have found a new trick that lets them equip Armor Plates while running. Here’s how it’s done:

  • First, hold Y/Triangle/G to start equipping Armor Plates.
  • While plating, moveforward and hit jump.
  • When your Operator lands, they’ll start entering a running animation.
  • Continue to hit jump while plating to keep running.

Note: You may want to want to open your Settings – Controller – Gameplay menu and set Armor Plate Behavior to ‘Apply All’ in order to have your character plate up to full without the need for a second button press.

Here’s a great demonstration of how to equip Armor Plates while running in Warzone 2 by nahvitron on Twitter:

The user seems to have been the one to discover the technique, which will soon be a trick used by every player in the Battle Royale title.

Sometimes, the running animation doesn’t seem to come into effect until the second Armor Plate is used, but it’s still a great deal faster than just hiding to plate up.

By giving Operators the ability to move while plating, this movement tech will give players a huge edge over those who don’t know about it. Try it out, the next time you’re recovering from a gunfight with enemies still in the area!
