Jailbreak is a random event in Warzone 2 that redeploys anyone who has been killed during the match for free.

This applies to anyone, including those who died and are spectating or those just about to enter the Gulag. Even if your whole team is dead, you redeploy in a Jailbreak as long as you are spectating.

However, it only works once, and if you die again, a squad mate will need to redeploy you.

Of course, once you redeploy, you’ll have no loot or cash in hand. So, make sure you go to the best landing spot in Warzone 2 to get your custom loadout instantly.

When Does Jailbreak Happen in Warzone 2?

The Jailbreak event typically happens during the fourth circle of a match. However, there is no guarantee that it will happen at all.

That is because the Jailbreak event is completely random and will, therefore, not necessarily occur in every match.

This means that players who die early on in a game may be able to respawn during the fourth circle or may waste their time waiting for the event to appear.

However, if the Jailbreak event does happen, players will be notified beforehand by a warning that says “Jailbreak Imminent”. At the very least, this gives an indication of if players should continue waiting.

How Often Does Jailbreak Occur in Warzone 2?

The Jailbreak event will only occur once per match in Warzone 2 if it happens at all. This means that you’ll only have one chance to make the most of it.

It is possible that players will experience the Jailbreak event in consecutive matches or not at all for multiple games.

Can You Trigger Jailbreak in Warzone 2?

Yes, a Jailbreak event will be triggered manually in Warzone 2 once all the elements needed to craft the Nuke are collected by a player.

This is to give all players an opportunity to steal the elements from you and attempt to complete the Champion’s Quest for themselves.

However, outside of this very specific and difficult-to-achieve accomplishment, there is no way to manually trigger a Jailbreak.
