Loadout Drops can no longer be purchased from a Buy Station in Warzone 2.

Instead, Buy Stations only contain Primary Weapons from a player’s Loadouts.

Warzone 2: What’s inside Loadout Drops?

Here’s everything Loadout Drops contain in Warzone 2.

  • Primary and Secondary Weapon
  • Lethal and Tactical Equipment
  • Perk Package — A premade set of four Perks containing Modern Warfare II Base, Bonus, and Ultimate Perks.
Activision Loadouts can be earned through Loadout Drops or by completing a Stronghold.

How to get Loadout Drops in Warzone 2

There are two methods of acquiring a loadout in Warzone 2, which include:

  1. Loadout Drops: Loadout Drops randomly drop between the second and sixth circle collapses as part of an in-game event.
  2. Clearing out a Stronghold

What are Strongholds?

Strongholds are enemy hideouts filled with AI enemies.

Activision explained in a blog, “At the end of the first circle collapse in Battle Royale matches, three Strongholds are activated around the map and do not require a key for access.”

The first team that reaches a Stronghold must defuse a bomb before time expires. If the bomb detonates, the mission changes to clearing a specific amount of AI enemies.

Completing a stronghold offers a Loadout Crate and a temporary UAV that covers the surrounding area.
