Warzone 2.0 DMZ is getting a new Forward Operating Base (FOB) with the Season 4 update. The new feature will introduce the first hub for DMZ players.
Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 DMZ is the extraction shooter game mode similar to Escape from Tarkov. The game mode takes place on the same map as the battle royale mode. However, instead of the regular player mode, the game mode features 20 players with hundreds of AI combatants.
Players who play DMZ deploy to the LZ directly from the lobby. However, starting from the next season, players are getting a more centralized hub called the Forward Operating Base. Let’s take a look at what’s in store for DMZ operators in the Forward Operating Base.
What is the Forward Operating Base?
The Forward Operating Base (FOB) is a more centralized hub for all communications and Operator upgrades within DMZ. This menu system allows players to complete objectives to earn a variety of upgrades to use across DMZ. These upgrades come in four different categories:
· Stash: Wallet and Key Stash size increases.
· Weapons Locker: Insured and contraband armaments and upgrades.
· Bounty Board: For Exfil, Bartering recipes, and Buy Station discounts.
· Communications Station: Allowing Urgent Mission access.
All player Upgrades within the Forward Operating Base are passive, don’t need to be equipped, and allow for efficient progress across all aspects of DMZ.
Within the FOB, players can unlock Urgent Missions. These are a new type of Faction-requested tasks. They are usually quicker to complete and provide an excellent way to earn Faction Reputation, and unlock more Story Missions, thus giving Faction Missions even more agency.
Specifically, Urgent Mission completion grants a tracked Reputation with individual Factions, all shown in the Forward Operating Base, along with the objectives that allow players to unlock insured slots, the out-of-game Wallet, as well as expanding DMZ elements like the Contraband Stash, Key Stash, and Wallet Capacity.
