Warzone Ranked Resurgence: Release Date, Rewards, How To Play

Warzone is bringing Resurgence to Ranked Play, with new rewards and Skill Divisions to work through.
Warzone Ranked Resurgence: Release Date, Rewards, How To Play

Warzone's Ranked Play is getting a shake-up in Season 2, with the introduction of Ranked Resurgence. Players will now be able to play competitively on the fan-favorite Resurgence Mode, this time in Fortune's Keep, using all the classic Resurgence rules. 

And with a new Ranked mode comes new rewards and Skill Divisions, meaning Warzone players will have plenty to work towards as they climb the leaderboard. Below, we'll go over everything you need to know about Ranked Resurgence, including its release date, all rewards, and more. 

When Does Warzone Ranked Resurgence Start?

From what we can tell, while Warzone Ranked Resurgence will be launching in Season 2, it won't be available from launch. Players will likely hjae to wait a little while before Ranked Resurgence goes live.

It's also worth noting that Ranked Resurgence will be the only Ranked Play mode available in Warzone for the time being, and will be the official competitive experience within Warzone. Regular Ranked Play is scheduled to return later this year.

In order to play Warzone Ranked Resurgence, players will need to be at least Level 55. The following formats will be in effect:

  • Party Size: Trios
  • Map: Fortune’s Keep
  • Game Mode: Resurgence

There are a few similarities and differences to Ranked Resurgence compared to Warzone's regular Ranked mode. For starters, players still progress their Skill Rating (“Rank”) by earning Stars. Up to three Stars being earnable per match:

  • Place in the Top 8 of Squads: One Star
  • Place in the Top 5 of Squads: Two Stars
  • Finish 1st: Three Stars

SR placement, however, has been adjusted based on the fewer number of Squads per match: 

  • Teams Remaining - 14: SR = 0
  • Teams Remaining - 10: SR = 15
  • Teams Remaining - 8: SR = 30
  • Teams Remaining - 6: SR = 45
  • Teams Remaining - 5: SR = 60
  • Teams Remaining - 4: SR = 80
  • Teams Remaining - 3: SR = 100
