Warzone 2.0 DMZ is getting its first progress wipe with the Season 2 update.

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.

While players can keep the contraband and equipment acquired from each extraction, it is only available for a season. However, DMZ will get progress wipes each season to create an even playing ground like every extraction shooter.

DMZ Progress Wipe

DMZ is an extraction shooter where players can keep their inventory with them until they die or simply fail to extract from Al Mazrah. Like most extraction shooters such as Escape from Tarkov and Cycle Frontier, DMZ will also get its first progress wipe with the Season 2 update.

The progress wipe will remove all unlocked insured slots. Furthermore, it will also reset all faction tiers, mission progress, and keys. Most players are going to be anxious about their stored contraband. Unfortunately, the progress wipe will also remove any stored contraband.

Progress wipe is an essential part of any extraction shooter. It enforces a fair playing ground. New players getting into DMZ after the Season 2 update won’t feel overwhelmed in their lobbies, as every player will start from ground zero.
