How to Play Third Person Mode in Warzone 2

It is only possible to play Warzone 2 in Third Person mode using third-person playlists in the Battle Royale game mode. However, operators worldwide have praised Third Person mode, and even Activision realizes how it can change the Battle Royale landscape. Hence, we are interested to see if this mode will become a permanent fixture in other modes like DMZ. There are also settings Field of View (FOV) settings for Third Person mode we will discuss in greater detail.

Third Person Playlists

Activision introduced Third Person playlists into the Battle Royale weekly rotation at the start of Season 01. These playlists are the only way to play in Third Person, and you will only face other Operators in the Third Person mode. As of this writing, the current Third Person playlist is Battle Royale Trios. All the standard Battle Royale rules, like Loadouts and Strongholds, still apply.

You cannot swap into Third Person mode in other playlists or game modes. This is to prevent Operators from having an advantage over another using a different perspective. Using Third Person perspective changes every aspect of how you operate your Operator, changes the match pace, and how objectives are completed.

  4. Adjust the following 3 Person FOV settings as you see fit:
