Warzone 2.0 DMZ players share the perfect solution to the Key system. The Key system is a big part of DMZ’s looting mechanics.
Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 is the direct sequel to Warzone 1. While most core game modes from Warzone 1 have returned to the sequel, new game modes such as DMZ have been the center of attention.
DMZ is an extraction shooter game mode based on the BR map Al Mazrah. Players deploy as teams of trios, duos, or solo. There are loot caches, safes, strongholds, and hidden caches that grant players contraband they can extract at the end of the session.
One of the unique features of DMZ is the key system. The Key system provides players with keys to unlock sheds and rooms around the map. However, players are unhappy with the key system and have shared the best way to change it for good.
The Reworked Key System
The initial key system in Warzone 2 allowed players to stash a key and find the area’s location by looking at a map or on the internet. But in a recent Reddit thread, a few players came up with the best way to change the key system.
The original poster suggested that DMZ would be more interesting if players knew where the stash was or just an indication through a glowing sign on the mini-map or the tacmap. Most players agreed with the thread, with a few of them suggesting more ideas for making the key system better.
u/OGAtlasHugged highlighted the main issues players have with the key system. The user mentions how the boxes, rooms, or blocks are all similar in Al Mazrah, making it hard for players to understand the location.
Another user also agreed with the comment sharing a similar frustration with the key system’s tedious grind.
DMZ has cemented its place as one of the most popular game modes in CoD history. However, with more QoL changes, such as the suggested changes to the key system, it is no doubt the mode will reach its full potential.
