Roleplaying Uber drivers is what Warzone 2 is really about

Like a surreal modernization of the 1914 Christmas reality (opens in new tab), gamers in Name of Obligation: Warzone 2 are setting apart their variations and laying down their arms within the identify of, uh, offering short-distance cab rides. Warfare is hell.

Noticed by VG247 (opens in new tab)a Warzone 2 participant by the identify of crescendummain has been gaily jaunting about Warzone 2’s maps in a chop prime, pulling up alongside his opponents and (if he can speak them down from riddling him with bullets) utilizing the sport’s proximity voice chat (opens in new tab) to supply them rides to a vacation spot of their selection.

Miraculously, it really appears to work. After sweet-talking three obvious strangers into climbing aboard his automotive, Crescendummain drives them over to the Hydroelectric location on Warzone 2’s Al Mazrah map, sticking to the roads to be able to present the smoothest journey attainable. They do not even vaporise him in a hail of bullets as soon as they have been dropped off! Really a testomony to the generosity of the human spirit.

Effectively, virtually anyway. I am positive crescendummain has a folder stuffed with movies that did not finish fairly in addition to the one above. However nonetheless, it is all the time enjoyable when these sorts of natural absurdities stand up out of techniques designed for one thing a lot, a lot completely different.

Crescendummain is way from the one Name of Obligation: Warzone 2 participant to have found this side-hustle. Gamers all throughout Al Mazrah are lending a complete new that means to the time period ‘five-star normal’ by getting in on the profitable ridesharing meta. A TikToker named ziccs (by way of Eurogamer (opens in new tab)), for instance, has been carting punters round Al Mazrah and making good cash doing it: He bought a 4510% tip on a $100 fare for his hassle.

And there is loads extra apart from. Gamers and streamers throughout all 5 million completely different social media platforms are moonlighting as Warzone 2 chauffeurs. I’ve included a pair extra examples down beneath.

Whereas that is clearly an important story to return out of Name of Obligation: Warzone 2, it is hardly the one one. Earlier right now it got here to gentle that Warzone 2—a free-to-play recreation—was inexplicably locking gamers out (opens in new tab) and demanding they purchase Fashionable Warfare 2 earlier than they might get in. In the meantime, gamers who may entry the sport have been lamenting its “Microsoft Excel” looting system (opens in new tab). Don’t fret although, like our Warzone 2 review-in-progress (opens in new tab) says, none of that dulls the shine of the sport’s incredible map (or the Uber drivers who’ll carry you round it).
