When Is Plunder Coming Back to Warzone?

The popular Plunder playlist is no longer in Warzone, prompting calls for it to return. Here’s when it’s coming back.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded reception has largely been positive, but recently one popular game mode went missing.

It didn’t take long for the complaints to beginning rolling after Plunder was no longer an option in the Warzone menu. After all, the fan favorite playlist is a great choice for those looking to level up their guns without resorting to playing Vanguard.

What’s more, it’s a more relaxing, large-scale game mode that many players enjoy while warming up, or when they don’t fancy the stress of a battle royale match.

Warzone Players Demand Return of Plunder Playlist

Already, many players are taking to the Warzone online forums to complain about their favorite game mode going missing.

“I really wish they would stop removing Plunder,” Reddit user SHRED-209 writes. “BR and Resurgence is just way too sweaty for me. Plunder is always a fun time when I just want to mess around and chill for the night.”

It’s a sentiment that many users seem to share, with several posts made on the topic in the last 24 hours alone.

What’s more, one fan believes they’ve found a reason why the game mode is missing in Warzone right now.

“They removed it because it’s a 2xp weekend and they don’t want people farming weapon xp and battle pass xp,” rictor33 suggests.

And while it’s true that the fastest way to level up Warzone guns is in Plunder, we wonder if that’s really why Activision opted to take out the mode.

When Is Warzone Plunder Coming Back?

The good news is that Plunder Quads is returning to Warzone on Tuesday, August 16 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST.

UPDATE: Plunder was initially set to return on Thursday, August 11, but has been delayed until August 16 instead.

2 days later on August 18, Plunder will be replaced by Golden Plunder, a game mode that is very similar the iconic mode but with the following differences:

  • Player Count Increased by 20% to 120.
  • Players Drop More Cash on Death.
  • Victory Cash Requirement is $5,000,000, up from $1 million.
  • ATMs to loot and Golden Keycards to Open Bunkers are Available.

And there’s one more reason why Warzone players have been moving away from Battle Royale modes recently.

So many of us are sick and tired of the removal of Plunder. We don't enjoy the other games you replaced it with!!! Plunder is always full of players and so many are extremely disappointed.

I’m a big call of duty fan I’ve played since day 1 of first game playing all the campains then I started playing plunder and I must say it’s brilliant and all my team mates have a blast playing it but it’s got to the stage that they keep removing plunder to put on some other rubbish game and it’s making fans fed up of cod all together and the new anti cheat system is not working I’m actually thinking of deleting the game forever dew to this mess of a game and all the money that fans pay for gun exec exec you would think they would come up with something better to tackle cheaters and taking plunder off

Well thankfully I never handed over any money as a complete newbie to gaming. Seeing the utter contempt the company has for the customer, nor will I ever. The other games are unplayable for a beginner and it is a clear as day there are cheats galore all over the place. And I'm a middle aged consumer looking for a hobby post BBC license fee with an awful lot of disposable income these days. Removing products like that with no warning, and then even failing to honour announcements to reintroduce, shocking. Clearly I'll be looking for a new hobby - maybe fishing.
