Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is here with the new DMZ extraction mode. This is more of an objective-based sandbox game that plays very different to battle royale. With many ways to tackle a round, including a variety of objectives all set in a PvPvE environment, it can be a lot to take in. Here we’ll list some tips and general information to help you get started and make the most of your time in DMZ mode.
Quick DMZ overview
DMZ is a trios mode in a PvPvE environment, where you can have the option to choose how you want to play, which includes looting for high-value items and weapons and completing faction objectives. You keep everything you loot with a successful exfil, but you risk losing almost everything if you die and fail to extract from the match.
General DMZ tips for beginners
Weapons work differently than battle royale
Before loading into a match of DMZ, it’s important to understand how weapon loadouts work. Here’s a full guide to DMZ weapon types, but basically, there are weapons you extract from the mode called Contraband, and there are the weapons you customize with the Gunsmith to take into DMZ, and those are called weapon blueprints.
Your custom blueprints are the only items that you won’t permanently lose from a failed DMZ mission, but you do get penalized for not successfully extracting from the match. This penalty is a two-hour cooldown timer. Here we offer a DMZ guide for how to unlock more insured weapon slots and reduce the cooldown penalty faster.
Whether you choose to go into a mission with your custom weapon blueprint, a Contraband weapon, or nothing at all will depend on what your goal is for the match. If your objective is just to go in and scavenge loot and money to extract with, it’s not worth risking your best guns. You can easily load into a match with just your fists, melee the first AI you see, and take their weapon. Or you can scavenge a building and likely find something to use.
Save the better guns for when you’re loading in for something specific that requires more firepower, such as clearing out Strongholds or a series of difficult faction missions.
Freebies and early essentials
Make sure to always load into a match with your lethal, tactical and field upgrade equipment. You always get to pick these items at the start of a match, and you never lose access to them. I recommend the munitions box for the best field upgrade, so you always have ammo at your disposal. You can always scavenge more or different lethals and tactical equipment, but always take those freebies.
Once in the match, look for the vests that let you equip more armor. You can buy these from Buy Stations, but there’s a good chance you’ll loot one if you search nearby buildings.
Easy weapon unlocks
One really important thing to note is that if you’re new or only have Warzone 2.0, you can unlock weapons much faster in DMZ. Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 have a complex weapon progression system that requires you to use certain weapons to unlock others, but you can bypass this hassle by simply extracting with guns in DMZ. Everytime you exfil with a weapon you don’t already have unlocked, it will unlock it for use across all modes. So, if you find a new gun you like, make sure you exfil with it.
Start faction missions early
Before loading into a match, you’ll have the option to choose three faction missions to complete in-game. These are tons of various challenges, including tasks like looting specific items, collecting intel, and eliminating marked targets. They do range in difficulty, but completing them will not only give you decent XP and rewards, but it also works towards unlocking additional insured weapon slots. Here is our full guide on how you unlock the additional weapon slots for DMZ, which also explains how you can reduce the cooldown penalty of your weapon blueprints.
DMZ assimilation feature and communication
If your squadmates die or you just need backup, you can use Warzone 2.0’s new assimilation feature. This lets you use a communication wheel to request to join other trios, or ask others to join you. This function is found by pressing up on the D-pad to access the mode’s communication wheel. This wheel also lets you use basic communication options for grouping up with friendlies or asking for help in your area.
Some AI are tough
Some AI are easy to fight, but beware of the armored AI and those at Strongholds or other dense objective areas, as they offer a more challenging fight. Make sure you have ammo and armor plates at your disposal, and don’t be afraid to retreat from a fight.
You can refuel and repair your vehicles
Unlike the original Warzone, the vehicles in Warzone 2 don’t have an unlimited fuel capacity. Make sure to watch the fuel meter at the bottom center of your screen. You can refuel vehicles with looted gas cans on the fly, but you can also refill and repair vehicles at gas stations.
Don’t feel pressured to stay
Loading in as a trio might seem like your fate is permanently tethered to teammates, but you can exfil at any time and don’t have to wait on your squadmates. You can choose to exfil separately, and so can they.

WhatsApp starts rolling out Message Yourself feature – GSMArena.com news – GSMArena.com
WhatsApp is now rolling out its Message Yourself feature for users on iOS and Android. The feature was initially part of a beta trial that is now being made available to everyone.
Message Yourself is a feature that lets you, in a sense, message yourself. It’s a chat that is only visible and accessible to you and you can post there as you would in any other chat. This can be used to write important notes to yourself, saving web links, or uploading documents and voice notes.
This feature has been available on other platforms, notably Telegram, which has had it since launch. WhatsApp only publicly started testing this feature back in October. Some users have managed to work around its absence in the past by creating a group and then removing other members to essentially create a private chat for yourself.
The feature was unavailable for testing at the time of writing but should be available over the coming weeks.

Flexispot EG1 electric standing desk is nearly 50% off for Cyber Monday 2022
Doctors have long touted the benefits of working at a standing desk compared to sitting all day. But most workers find that some work is more comfortable to do while sitting, while other work is more appropriate for standing. Sit/stand desks, like the Flexispot EG1, provide the best of both worlds, allowing you to electronically adjust the height of the desk at the touch of a button.
When I got my standing desk, I discovered another major benefit. I use it for product photography and because I can adjust the desk height, it makes it easy for me to shoot at just the right angle. It’s been a huge time-saver.
The desk I’m spotlighting today has a 24×40 in desk area. You can drop it down to as low as 28.6 inches from the ground and raise it up to 48.2 inches — or about shoulder height. The motorized lift system supports up to 132 pounds, which is more than enough for a keyboard, monitor, mouse, and even most tower PCs.
You do have to build the Flexispot EG1 yourself, but it goes together quickly and easily, and requires no special tools.
Amazon is currently offering 39% off, plus an additional $20 off if you click the coupon box.
