Do you need multiplayer packs to play Warzone?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

You do need multiplayer packs to play Warzone. Warzone is a free-to-play battle royale game mode within Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. However, in order to access certain features and content in Warzone, you need to have the necessary multiplayer packs installed.

On PC and PlayStation, specifically, you only need Data Pack 1 and the Multiplayer Pack 2 installed to be able to play Modern Warfare’s multiplayer. These packs are separate from the main game and can be downloaded for free from the respective platforms’ stores.

It’s worth noting that Warzone itself is a standalone game and does not require the purchase of Modern Warfare. However, if you want to access the full range of multiplayer modes and features in Modern Warfare, including the new CX-9 SMG, you will need to have the appropriate multiplayer packs installed.

If you’re someone who’s been playing Warzone for a while and starting to get bored of it, you might find it refreshing to switch over to the classic multiplayer mode. There are various game modes, maps, and weapons to choose from, providing a different gameplay experience compared to the battle royale format.

The new CX-9 SMG, in particular, might catch your interest. It’s a rapid-fire submachine gun that can be a deadly choice in close-quarters combat. Its high rate of fire and manageable recoil make it a formidable weapon in the hands of a skilled player.

So, if you’re looking for a change of pace or simply want to explore other aspects of the game, I would recommend giving the multiplayer mode a try. Just make sure to have Data Pack 1 and the Multiplayer Pack 2 installed, and you’ll be good to go.
