Looks like Call of Duty’s DMZ mode is getting a Metal Gear Solid-style extraction balloon
Call of Duty Warzone 2.0’s DMZ mode appears to be getting a Metal Gear Solid-style extraction balloon.
Redditor Top_Scientist4578 datamined the item which will be available to purchase from Buy Stations around Al-Mazrah (the map which DMZ and Warzone is based in).
Based on the screenshot, the item will cost $2000 in-game to purchase, although that’s probably a placeholder value.
For those of you who haven’t played a Metal Gear Solid, one of Snake’s key tools is the Fulton Extraction Balloon, which allows him to extract just about anything back to base, including soldiers, cargo and vehicles.
Unfortunately, I doubt the extraction balloon in DMZ will be as versatile and will likely be only used to extract weapons and key items like weapon blueprints or keycards.
Still, it’s a pretty neat addition that will help players save key items in case they die in-game. DMZ is a Tarkov-style mode in which players lose all their gear if they are killed before extracting out the map.
The mode is currently labelled as a beta, which is either a reflection of the buggy state of the game or that expectation of substantially more content down the line.
