Warzone 2 DMZ Insured Weapon Slots: How To Unlock More

As an open-world, narrative-focused extraction mode, Warzone 2 DMZ is where players complete contracts, world activities, and faction-based missions in a high-risk, high-reward version of Al Mazrah. The risk is that you can lose your weapons and gear if you don't exfiltrate properly. However, there are Insured Weapons and Slots to use in Warzone 2 DMZ.

This article explains exactly what Insured Weapons are and how you can unlock more Insured Weapon Slots in Warzone 2 DMZ, alongside the cooldown periods for the three slots, so let's jump in.

Update on 15 December 2022: We've updated this article with the latest information about Insured Weapon Slots in Warzone 2 and how to unlock them with ease.

What Are Insured Weapons & Cooldowns in Warzone 2 DMZ?

Insured Weapons in Warzone 2 DMZ can be any weapon you've previously unlocked, even in MW2 or Blueprints. The Insured Weapons feature allows players to bring their loadouts into DMZ.

You won't lose an Insured Weapon if you die in Warzone 2 DMZ without exfiltrating, but there is a cooldown period. If you die inside DMZ, your Insured Weapon won't be usable for a certain amount of time, roughly 120 minutes, aka 2 hours.

You can also speed up the Insured Weapon cooldown by playing more Warzone 2 DMZ and, for example, extracting other items or Cash. During the cooldown period, you can bring along Contraband guns, but they are lost of death. Alternatively, you can always jump into DMZ with nothing and kill an AI to take its gun.

To unlock Insured Weapon Slot 2, you must complete Tier 3 of every faction. For the third and final Insured Weapon Slot, you must complete Tier 5 of any faction. Learn more about the Faction missions and rewards in Warzone 2 DMZ with our dedicated guide.
