Among the most exciting news to come from the COD Next event held recently by Activision is the news of a brand new Gulag system coming to Warzone 2 upon its release. The Gulag has been a fan favorite mechanic in the game for some time, and fans are interested to know how this new system might improve on its predecessor.
If you find yourself asking these same questions then you're in the right place, as this article will aim to clear up any questions you may have regarding what the new Gulag is and what all its new features are in Call of Duty Warzone 2.
Gulag 2.0 In Call Of Duty Warzone 2 Explained
The Gulag offered a novel twist to the battle royale formula when it was first introduced with Warzone's launch in 2020. Downed players in Warzone can compete against one another in one on one battles inside the Gulag for a chance to be revived, giving them more agency and something to do while waiting for their teammates to revive them or the game to end.
The Gulag has undergone a few changes since then, usually to coincide with each year's new Call of Duty game, but its one-on-one duel format has remained constant. That is until now, with news that the Gulag in Warzone two will be switching up the formula.
With the new Al Mazrah map in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 comes a brand new 2v2 Gulag, which Activision describes as a "live-fire training complex as well as a prison." This larger multi-level arena will provide players with more space to loot and fight, which should better accommodate the increased player count per match.

Warzone 2's Gulag will also see the addition of two new AI enemies to face off against, providing players with another way to achieve freedom aside from defeating the opposing team. If they defeat the heavily armed Jailer, they will be able to use his keys to escape, but they must be wary of the Juggernaut, which will appear if the match lasts too long.
However, taking a little more time may be worth the risk because Activision states that players who win their matches will keep any loot they find. This all makes the Gulag more content-rich and more than just a limbo for players itching to get back into the multiplayer game.
Lastly, Al Mazrah is set to be a dense battleground for Warzone 2 players, with 18 points of interest spread across the largest Call of Duty battle royale map yet. Players can expect a variety of new areas as well as locations inspired by classic Call of Duty maps.
With such a large map, players will undoubtedly find numerous ways to end up in the Gulag, and with the new 2v2 structure, getting out should be more challenging and fun than ever.
