Following on from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout game mode, Activision has released a new Call of Duty game based on the set-up of the 1999 Koushun Takami novel, Battle Royale.

Some might say that it’s a bit late to try to muscle into the battle royale scene, but when the name ‘Call of Duty’ is on a game, you can bet that millions of people are going to pile into the new release.

Call of Duty’s battle royale, Warzone, comes in the form of a free-to-play standalone title which requires a massive amount of space – in excess of 90GB – to install.

The new online multiplayer title blends the well-known Call of Duty: Modern Warfare gameplay with two modes, Plunder and Battle Royale, as well as a paid battle pass and a bunch of cosmetic items being for sale via microtransactions in the game store.

If you’re one of the millions of players jumping out of a plane to play, these are all the Warzone controls that you’ll need to know – including how to mount a weapon.
