News > Trios return to Call of Duty Warzone!
After its sudden removal, the much loved standard Trios mode has returned to Call of Duty: Warzone. Warzone’s Trios mode was removed following the release of Scopes and Scatter Guns, a limited game mode. To build hype around the new game mode’s release, Activision wrote in a blog post:
"Grab your merry band of three in this twist on Battle Royale that brings you into new ranges of play. Will you get up close and pack a devastating punch with a shotgun? Or decide to deal death at distance with a sniper? Make your choice or do a mix of both, just try to outlast the enemy and the collapse in this Battle Royale variant to claim victory."

Warzone’s Scopes and Scatter Guns was limited to up to three players in a squad, as Infinity Ward attempted to introduce a unique gameplay experience. The mode required players to choose between two types of guns: shotguns or sniper rifles. This meant that players had to fight in close proximity to eliminate enemies with their shotguns, or sniper enemies from a distance. With players having to contend with a shrinking gas circle, players had to tweak their strategy as the Battle Royale progressed.
It didn’t go down too well with Call of Duty: Warzone players, though…
Despite their best efforts, Scopes and Scatter Guns didn’t perform as Infinity Ward would have hoped, as Warzone players were restricted to snipers and shotguns only — even worse for players that the standard version of Trios had been removed. Following a backlash from Warzone players, Infinity Ward decided opted to reinstate the Trios, which went live as of 7:00 (BST) this morning.
We hear you loud and clear! We'll be doing a playlist update tomorrow night, Thursday, April 16th at 11PM PST that brings BR Trios back to #Warzone.— Infinity Ward (@InfinityWard) April 16, 2020
This is the second time Trios has been removed from Warzone, after Infinity Ward removed Trios when Call of Duty Season 3 was introduced. Although the new season brought the addition of a Quads mode, players showed no hesitation in letting Infinity Ward know just how they felt.
By now, it should be clear to the developers that the Solo, Trios, and Quads modes should not be messed with — especially when they are given no prior warning of its removal. We can expect Duos to be included at some point during Season 3, but let’s hope next time they can do so without angering Warzone fans!
To be fair to Infinity Ward, we must commend them for taking onboard their players’ feedback. What’s more, there is no denying they are committed to providing a great competitive experience for all. At the beginning of the week, the developers warned that they will be clamping down on players found of cheating; approximately 70,000 worldwide bans have been handed out so far.
We've now issued over 70,000 bans worldwide to protect #Warzone from cheaters. We're continuing to deploy dedicated security updates and work continues on improving in-game reporting. We'll share more details soon. We are watching. We have zero tolerance for cheaters.— Infinity Ward (@InfinityWard) April 13, 2020
To ensure Call of Duty: Warzone players are clear with what actions constitute as cheating, Infinity Ward has requested that all players familiarise themselves with their Security and Enforcement Policy, which you can find here.

So you’ve been gaming every day during the lockdown.
