Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 Map Guide Features, Sectors, POIs, and MoreThe long-awaited Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 was released on November 16 and brought a whole new map called Al Mazrah and several new mechanics that focus on vehicular combat. In other words, you can now use cars, helicopters, and tanks in your combat on a giant map.

Al Mazrah is a completely different map from Verdansk and classical COD: Warzone’s new map, Caldera. Besides having a completely new Gulag, the new map now even has rivers where you can use new underwater combat mechanics. 

So here is the Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 map guide that includes features, stories, POIs, and sectors for those who want to discover the map quickly.

Where is the Warzone 2 Map Set, and What is the Story Behind Al Mazrah.

Knowing the map’s features where you play is one of the most important things on the way to success in battle royale games—actually, in every open-world game.

For Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, leaks were starting to come out early in 2022. The biggest and most notable of these was a new map called “Al Mazrah.” After the game was fully released on November 16, players discovered more features about this new map. 

Let’s start with its story. The new map, Al Mazrah, is set in a fictional country known as the United Republic of Adal in the Middle East. Those who have played the Modern Warfare 2 campaign will know the story behind the Al Mazrah pretty well. 

The Republic of Adal was ruled by the Ottoman Empire until the end of WWI. After the Ottoman Empire fell and World War I ended, the region of Adal set up the United Republic of Adal. The area quickly became industrialized. For example, in Al Mazrah, the capital city of the Republic of Adal, an oil refinery, a port for ships, a hydroelectric plant, an observatory, and an airport were built.

Another important note about the history of Al Mazrah is that it is affected by climate change. As a coastal country, the United Republic of Adal is affected by sea level rise caused by climate change, with the Sawah village to the south of Al Mazrah currently underwater.

So, on the map, where you can feel the heat of the desert, there is an oasis, many rivers, and many other interesting places that await you to explore.

Warzone 2.0 Map Al Mazrah Features

Al Mazrah is the biggest, most varied, and richest map in the Call of Duty series. Since COD: Warzone 2.0 is a part of 2022’s Modern Warfare 2, the game shares some of the same places with MW2, and it wouldn’t be wrong to say Al Mazrah has more than a couple of traces of past MW titles in the form of POIs.

Al Mazrah’s many winding rivers are one of its distinguishing features, allowing players to use underwater combat mechanics in these rivers. 

Another interesting feature on the Warzone 2 map is the AI strongholds. These are places that have a specific AI that is on the lookout. This will help players gain an edge when competing in a match. So it could be a great way to gain high-tier loot and full your loadout.

The DMZ mode, or mission-based battle for loot, is a feature of Warzone 2. This is a slightly different spin on the traditional game of being the last man standing. It is less about killing everything and more about ticking off goals. It can sometimes lead to random gunshots and a slew of other interesting surprises.

The other major feature of the Warzone 2 map is the Gulag multiplayer mode. This is a two-player experience that pairs up players for gunfights. This allows the players to have more control over their weapons and vehicles.

Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 Map Guide The New Gulag

The new Gulag map features more space than the old Gulag.

Warzone 2.0 Has New Gulag System and New Gulag Map

If you have ever played the first Call of Duty: Warzone, you’ll know the Gulag, but if you’re a newcomer, the Gulag can be described as a small arena designed to visit after you die the first time. If you can survive in Gulag, you’ll be sent back to Al Mazrah and rejoin the game.

In the new Gulag system, you’ll be fighting 2v2, and the arena contains loot. There is also an optional boss called The Jailer. The arena also features an open courtyard with a circular platform and more space than the old Gulag.

You will be automatically sent to the Gulag when you die the first time. The Gulag will pair you up with a randomly chosen duo. You and the other three players will spawn without any equipment. So you need to pick up loot from the map while you’re fighting.

You and your friend must coordinate to defeat your opponents and earn the right to redeploy. If you or your opponent can’t manage to win the battle after 30 seconds, an AI-controlled character, The Jailer, will spawn in the middle of the map. 

The Jailer is armed with a powerful minigun, and the player who kills The Jailer will take the keys to escape from the new Gulag.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is now available for free for PCs on Steam, for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on the Microsoft Store, and for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on the PS Store.
