How Call Of Duty: Warzone's New Armored Royale Mode Works

Recon: Armored Royale gives Warzone players a personal battle fortress in the fight to be the last team standing.


Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 has kicked off with a new limited-time game mode, called Recon: Armored Royale. In it, several squads comprised of four players each will be dropped onto the Verdansk map with an armored vehicle and armed only with a pistol.

The vehicle itself is more heavily armored than a regular cargo truck, comes equipped with a fortified gun turret located above the driver's cabin, and a custom buy station that will allow for repairs and upgrades.

The trucks are also capable of reviving downed teammates, provided that it is still operational and is within a safe area for an operator to respawn into, as the Gulag will not be around in this mode. Respawns will also be disabled after the sixth circle collapse and should your truck be destroyed you'll also lose the ability to cheat death.

While players won't need their truck to survive along with them, the upgrades that can be purchased for it makes the vehicle a tactical advantage in this last team standing mode. The turret can be upgraded to deal more damage, more armor can be purchased for the truck, and a UAV upgrade adds a radar sensor that will reveal enemy positions nearby.

Recon: Armored Royale isn't the only new content coming to Call of Duty: Warzone. Players who reach battle pass tier 18 will receive the Edward Finishing Move, a sneak attack that allows them to summon a vampire bat to bite attack an enemy.

In other Call of Duty news, Activision recently detailed the Zombies mode for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War ahead of its launch on November 13 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and Series S.
