The Rank Up Report #40: Achieving Warzone™ Mastery

Here’s what these Warzone challenges are, from criteria and XP rewards – including a summary of multi-step ones – to an easy to follow, difficult to achieve, tip for each mastery challenge:

Battle Royale Victories – Get 1 / 10 / 50 / 200 / 300 Victories playing Warzone Battle Royale

Reward: 10,000 XP (1) / 25,000 (10 / 50/ 200 / 300)

Out of the many, many tips I could give here, I’ll go with a timely one: take advantage of limited-time modes, as they usually offer alternative winning strategies for victory. Some, such as Mini Royale, are faster to complete and smaller in size than a traditional game, which theoretically weighs the odds of winning more in your favor.

Odds aside, you’ll still have to win games, so get ready to fight for your 50 dubs!

Plunder Victories – Get 1 / 10 / 50 / 200 / 300 Victories playing Warzone Plunder

Reward: 10,000 XP (1) / 25,000 (10 / 50/ 200 / 300)

Winning a Plunder match involves knowing every single point of interest within Verdansk where Cash, Supply Boxes, and Contracts can, and will, spawn. Want that juicy intel? Well, we have an Atlas for that – study it thoroughly and leave no stone unturned with a full squad on a mission for mad cash.

Warzone Victories – Get 5 / 25 / 100 / 300 / 400 Victories playing Warzone 

Reward: 10,000 XP (5) / 25,000 (25 / 100 / 300 / 400)

This marks the last “career” Mastery challenge, and it brings up two extremely important facts for this trio of extremely long and difficult challenges:

1. These three aren’t meant to be completed in one sitting, so let the victories come as they may.

2. Although you could be a solo player, squadding up with solid teammates – or even better, friends – might make these victories easier to come by, if not more fun as you all work towards becoming masters of the Warzone!

Warzone™ Mastery: Verdansk Subway System (Metro)

Lay of the Land – Verdansk Subway System 

At the start of every Warzone match, the Metro will have a number of open stations to explore. All of them have the same layout, thanks to the massive urban planning initiative Verdansk underwent when these were first constructed.

From the ground level, head down a large staircase set and hop past a set of turnstiles to reach the first landing. Here, a set of archways and a tiled wall breaks up an otherwise open space that leads to an inaccessible ticket office. 

Once down at this landing, turn left or right to find a staircase down to the station’s platform, where old posters are plastered onto the walls along with a handy graphic that marks what station an operator is currently at.

The platform itself is broken up into two halves, with each side dedicated to a different direction of the subway line. Both sides have a small room, such as an employee break area or equipment closet, that can be accessed via double doors. Nearly every one of these rooms also has a near escape ladder, which leads up to a hole on the surface a few dozen meters from the main subway staircase entrance.

Whether it’s in these rooms, on the platform, or even back at the previously accessible ticket office landing area, there is the potential for items, Supply Boxes, and Contracts to populate these otherwise abandoned subway stations. 

After scavenging for items, head to the main platform and hop aboard the subway to access the new fast travel system. Trains will arrive frequently at each station during their journey around the map in a clockwise or counterclockwise fashion through the following locales in order:
