Can you play Call of Duty Warzone split screen? That's one of the big questions everyone wants to know, because couch co-op battle royale would be awesome in Call of Duty Warzone. Split-screen isn't included by default in games these days as it used to be, but some games still support the feature, and you'd expect Warzone to be one of them. So without further ado, here are the details on if you can play a Call of Duty Warzone split screen mode.

Is Call of Duty Warzone split screen?

We'll save you some time; unfortunately, it is impossible to play Call of Duty Warzone in split screen mode. Trying to connect a second controller to your console will cause a prompt to appear explaining that this mode does not support split screen.

With that said, don't give up hope. Fortnite didn't add split screen for a long time so if Warzone continues to be successful and split screen is a much requested feature, the developers could well decide to implement it.

Of course, if couch co-op is your goal, there's still ways to achieve it. You'll need to acquire a second console and screen with an online connection. This is easier said than done, but if you're having some pals round, make sure they bring their consoles with them.

We haven't been given a reason for the lack of split screen but there's a good chance it could simply be too taxing on current gen consoles. Warzone does have 150 players on an enormous map after all, so having to render two instances of the game on the same machine isn't an easy task.

For now though, online play is the only option. Thankfully, you can utilise the Call of Duty Warzone crossplay function to play with friends no matter what platform they're on, including PC – just add them via the in-game Acitivision friends system. Good luck!
