Is Call of Duty Warzone Cross Platform? [Answered]

Call of Duty Warzone can be played with people across multiple platforms, and that will likely never change. 

Cross-platform play in general was first added to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019, and it continues to be a prominent feature in newer Call of Duty titles. The main reason why crossplay proved fruitful lies behind Warzone.

Warzone was headed for much bigger pastures than previous titles, including the best CoD games

So yeah, Activision wanted to tap into a larger audience by allowing platform and cross-progression play. Not only did this help Warzone, but it also somewhat revived the CoD multiplayer mode.

How Do You Crossplay in Warzone?

If you want to play Warzone with anyone, despite their platform, you’re going to need an Activision/Call of Duty account. And yeah, that's pretty much it!

Moreover, even if you didn’t plan on playing with someone from a different platform, having an Activision account would still be recommended. Who knows, you may meet people who don’t play on your platform sometime in the future, it’s always good to be prepared!

As of now, the only platforms that you can cross-play in Warzone with are 

  • PC
  • Xbox One
  • PS4
  • PS5
  • Xbox Series X/S
  • PS5

Combine that with a fact that you don't need PS Plus to play Warzone, and enjoy!

Is There a Cross-Platform Progression in Call of Duty

There are many pros and cons to crossplay, but let’s focus on one of the advantages of crossplay in the newer titles and Warzone. 

Crossplay is good enough on its own, but it also incentivized Activision to allow for cross-progression between games. For example, if you owned and played all three Call of Duty titles that are linked to Warzone, you’d have everything unlocked for your light machine guns unlocked in Warzone as well.

This system helped connect all three games, and even revived games that were headed for failure. You could unlock camos and attachments in Warzone itself, but it took much longer than if you were to play the title that the guns were imported from. And speaking of cosmetics, did you know
