We're a bit late to the scene, but here are the current PC system Requirements for Call of Duty Warzone, so this can be your one-stop go-to place for staying frosty about the latest updates regarding Warzone's PC requirements.

The free-to-play Battle Royale version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has taken the online competitive multiplayer shooter scene by storm, with over 30 million players signed up in just over a week after launch.

"Welcome to Warzone, the new massive free-to-play combat arena from the world of Modern Warfare. Drop in, armor up, loot for rewards, and battle your way to the top."

So here are the Official PC System Requirements for CoD: Warzone

Call of Duty: Warzone Minimum System Requirements

Call of Duty: Warzone Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X processor 
  • RAM: 12 GB RAM
  • GPU RAM: 4GB
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 / Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 or Radeon R9 390 / AMD Radeon RX 580
  • HD: 175GB
  • DX: 12

The System Requirements listed here are actually pretty good. Aside from that daunting 175GB download size, the rest seems very well optimized for players. A GTX 670 for minimum and GTX 970 for recommended mean that this game should run pretty well on most systems. Though you will need a system capable of supporting DirectX12, as there's currently no support for DirectX11.

From initial testing we found that this was not the case though, and that CoD Warzone was not very well optimized. But it seems like the game either defaulted on startup to Fullscreen borderless, or there was a recent patch, as the performance has significantly improved recently. We'll be conducting our usual Performance Benchmarks for a more accurate answer and results though, so stay tuned for those!

Here are some other pc system specs released that shed some light on Ray Tracing rec specs.

Call of Duty: Warzone Recommended Ray Tracing Specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X processor 
  • RAM: 16 GB RAM
  • GPU RAM: 6GB
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060
  • HD: 175GB

So currently the entry level ray tracing capable RTX card is what you need to meet the ray tracing requirements of Warzone. We will test that soon.

Then they have passed through the Ultra Ray Tracing specs as well.

We are advised that these Ultra Ray Tracing system requirements will get the game running at 4K Ray Tracing with high Frame rates. We will also test this soon as well.

Now just to take a little look at that massive 175GB hard drive storage space requirement for Warzone, its actually not as big as that. Here is the loading screen which shows that Warzone in fact needs to install 84.80GB to your PC drive storage space, at least for the moment.

Call of Duty Warzone has been shaping up to be one of the biggest Battle Royale games of the moment, no thanks to it's incredibly well known IP, and the fact that it's completely free to play.
