The moment has arrived – a substantial update for Call of Duty’s DMZ mode is now available, introducing the most significant number of new features since its initial launch. As the mode remains in its ‘beta’ phase, it’s clear that there’s room for improvement, making any updates a welcome addition.
In this guide, we’ll concentrate on the Active Duty Slots, a feature that is sure to be appreciated by both DMZ enthusiasts and fans of the extraction shooter genre as a whole. Without further ado, let’s dive in.
What are DMZ Active Duty Slots?
As previously stated, Active Duty Slots in DMZ are a brand new introduction that have come along with the Season 3 update that hits not only this looting and extraction game mode, but also MW2 and Warzone 2.
You’ll be presented with these Active Duty Slots in DMZ when you load up the mode and want to enter a match. You will have three of these in total to begin with and the ability to unlock a fourth if you meet the requirements.
What these Active Duty Slots do is enable you to essentially have multiple ‘characters’ to enter matches with, all with different gear on each. This will allow you to kit out each Operator for a specific task enabling you to have more concrete focuses on things like missions, if you’re looking to eliminate as many enemies as possible, or even those zero-to-hero runs.
In terms of what each Active Duty Slot items differentiate from Operator to Operator, you’re going to be looking at your Backpack, Plate Carrier, Killstreaks, Self-Revive, and Gas Mask. As just alluded to, this will allow you to create custom Operators for different occasions and allow you to risk a lot less than in previous Seasons.
What doesn’t change is the progress between missions on each of these slots so don’t worry if you begin a task with one Operator then switch to another in the next match, progress will carry over regardless, it’s just the aforementioned gear that will be affected.
