Warzone 2 & MW2 just added a new Groups feature that will help Call of Duty fans find other users to play with. Here’s how it works:
Season 1 Reloaded is finally here, and with it comes a whole host of new and exciting additions to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
But while we’ve got new guns, a map, new Operators, and even the franchise’s first Raid event to explore, one new feature came as an unexpected bonus.
Both Warzone & MW2 players can now access a new Groups feature in-game, letting them find a squad for any occasion.
What Are Groups in MW2 & Warzone 2?
Groups are a new social feature in MW2 & Warzone 2 that will help players make new friends and access online communities. If you’re looking for squadmates for DMZ, Raids, Spec Ops, or Warzone & Multiplayer action, you’ll be able to encounter new allies using the Groups feature.
Players can now create communities up to 5000 players strong, making sure you’ve always got someone online to play with. Alternatively, you can also create private Groups just for friends and family.
When you’re part of a Group, you’ll get access to its dedicated text channel, as well as being able to see all your fellow members and easily create parties.
How to Join a Group in MW2 & Warzone 2
To join a Group, simply head to the Social menu and tab across to the new Groups tab. From here, players can hit Browse Group and find a community that’s right for them.
Players can also be invited to Groups by other users, preventing the need to search for their friend’s community.
How to Make a Group in MW2 & Warzone 2
Call of Duty players can create their own Group by accessing the Social Menu then finding the new Groups tab. Then, they can choose ‘Create Group’ and start building their own community to match their preferences.
When creating a Group, players can name their community, and choose whether it is Public (available for anyone to join) or Private (an invite-only organization).
They can also enter a description to let people know what sort of Group they’d be joining if they’re interested in coming aboard.
Finally, to help your Group get noticed by the right sorts of players, Group-owners can add an assortment of labels to the community.
What Do Group Labels Mean?
Call of Duty Groups can add up to 3 labels to their community, to help players find the one that’s right for them. Here are all the descriptions that can be added to each Group.
In the COD category, players can describe what the Group members are most interested in playing:
- Battle Royale
Players can add labels to represent their out-of-game interests such as:
These labels define the Group’s tone, and reveal whether it’s more geared towards casual or competitive individuals, as well as giving details about when it will be most active:
- Active Daily
- Weekend Warriors
Finally, players can add special labels to indicate that the Group is affiliated with streamers, CDL Teams, and more.
