After weeks of rumors, Activision had finally lifted the veil off its highly anticipated reprised free-to-play battle royale title Call of Duty Warzone 2 at the Call of Duty: Next event.

CoD Warzone 2 launches on 16th November 2022, and it's making a ton of changes to the original's gameplay, including new underwater combat.

Players who prefer vehicular combat are also in luck since Warzone 2 introduces a host of new vehicle systems that adds a new depth to this aspect of the gameplay.

As mentioned previously, vehicular combat is a huge focus in Call of Duty Warzone 2, and Activision has added new vehicle animations to make things more realistic.

From vehicle doors being ripped apart from damage and tires popping up from shooting, vehicle animations have been completely refined in Warzone 2.

New vehicle mechanics include leaning out of windows to shoot enemies, mantling on vehicle roofs, and hijacking enemy vehicles, just to name a few. 
 Similar to Fortnite, vehicles in COD Warzone 2 will now run out of fuel, meaning players will have to worry not just about bumping into other players but also finding gas stations to refuel their vehicles on this new island. Gas stations will also allow players to repair their vehicles.

Since Activision is making so many changes to vehicular combat in Cod Warzone 2, it makes sense that it's also adding new vehicles to the game.

So far, we know about 12 vehicles that are coming to Warzone 2 at launch. From boats to SUVs and helicopters, there should be something to suit everyone in Warzone 2. 

Vehicles are either heavy or light, with the former boasting more armor whereas the latter favoring quick getaways.

Those are just some of the changes coming to vehicles in Call of Duty Warzone 2.
