So the latest version of the famous Call of Duty series has been released since 10th of March, 2020 and it has gained a huge following online. ‘Warzone’ has introduced the already famous battle royale concept along with the classic Call-of-Duty touch; however, PUBG, released in the March of 2017, was the pioneer game that brought the battle royale experience to the ‘First Person Shooting (FPS)’ games. Therefore, there have been debates regarding the comparison of the two.
|Solos: The classic game mode. Complete free for all, kill everyone, be the last one alive. Solo, a game mode where you spawn into the world alone and you just rely on your own tactics and skill to push you to the end and be the last player alive.||Battle Royale: The Battle Royale mode is similar to other titles in the genre where players compete in a continuously shrinking map to be the last player remaining. Players parachute onto a large game map where they encounter other players. As the game progresses and players are eliminated, the playable area shrinks forcing the remaining players into tighter spaces.|
|Duos: Duos game mode, you will be paired up with another individual and will compete to be the last ones alive.||Plunder: In the Plunder mode,teams have to search for stacks of Cash scattered around the map to accumulate $1 million. Once found, the game goes into overtime, with all Cash sums by 1.5, and the team who has gathered the most money when the clock runs out is declared the winner. Players re spawn automatically in this game mode. Blood Money is a variation of Plunder where additional cash bonuses are granted upon contract completions and successful executions of finishing moves.|
War:War, a game mode from ARMA 3 BR that has a Death match style where players kill each other for 30 minutes (if you die, you respawn back in with a parachute) and then at the end once the blue zone locks in, you can’t respawn anymore. After the blue zone locks, it will end normally in a BR ending with the circles, bombing runs and air drops.
|Arcade Mode: Arcade Mode is a new 28-player mode that lets players go solo or team up with friends. … As the name suggests, the Training Ground allow players to check out all weapons and items as a means of honing skills prior to a match.|
|Playlab Mode: Playlab comprises of these modes
1. Payload includes elements of aerial warfare like helicopters and shit
2. Rage gear TDM includes weapons installed on vehicle. One person drives and the other shoot; two teams compete in a ring and go bat shit crazy.
|Arena Mode: You have weapons at the start and there is a short map. Teams of five compete to reach a total of 40 kills|
|Royal Pass:It is a seasonal thing in PUBG. You get to earn RP points by doing small tasks and on completing tasks the Royal Pass rank increases. There are specific rewards at each RP level. This Royal Pass resets every season.|

PUBG has now matured while Warzone is still growing. Despite being behind in few aspects like fewer maps, modes and some details Warzone is still much better than PUBG. The graphics and the gameplay are closer to reality in the latter. PUBG has a larger community because of being available on both android and iOS in addition to the other 3 platforms i.e. Windows, PS4 and Xbox One. The availability of servers is directly related with the number of users which increases for any online game so this is for sure that the number of servers for COD: Warzone will increase in a couple of months. Overall, the areas where Warzone maybe considered behind PUBG today are subject to time and therefore it is safe to say that COD: Warzone is better than PUBG.
