Call of Duty: Warzone Armored Royale is the best mode yet

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 kicked off by adding some iconic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 guns and the new Verdansk subway system. While those additions are great, Warzone Armored Royale should’ve been the main highlight. Armored Royale alone makes suffocating hard drives to death worth it with Warzone’s increasing file size.

What is Warzone Armored Royale?

Warzone Armored Royale uses a Quad Squad fill to ensure every team has four players queuing up into the game. The armored behemoths players ride on in the mode are the closest thing Warzone might get to tanks, sporting a turret on the top and a personal upgrade station on the side. Your squad’s armored truck is home, and you must treat it with respect. As long as your truck is alive, you’re alive.

The vehicle acts as a personal infinite respawn beacon, deploying players after a short death timer. If a team wipes you and your truck, it’s game over. When your truck runs low on health, bring it to one of the highlighted gas stations to slowly refill its meter, or go to the upgrade station in the back and put money in the tank.

Warzone Armored Royale

Ultimate chaos

Embrace your inner Mad Max, because Warzone Armored Royale forces players into combat constantly with a rapidly shifting circle, causing destruction and chaos across Verdansk. It’s not difficult to find other players with the constant gunfire and UAV truck upgrade.

It’s unlikely you or other squads will pour funds into loadouts, so once you slap on that UAV upgrade for your truck the map lights up like a Christmas ornament, showing red dots everywhere. Happy hunting!

Armored Royale is insanity. Even if you think you wiped the enemy squad, as long as their truck is intact, they’ll keep spawning in. The trucks are beefy and the upgrades are heavy. Warzone Armored Royale is probably not the game mode for everyone, but this mode is shiny and chrome and I hope it stays around forever.
