How does assimilation work in Warzone 2.0?

As mentioned above, assimilation is a feature that players can use to request an enemy squad to join their team. For Assimilation to work, you must have assimilation recharge turned on before entering a game. This feature only works in the following game modes:

  • battle royal duos
  • Battle Royale Quads
  • Third person threesomes
  • crazy threesomes
  • dmz

The maximum number of enemy players that can join your team will be limited to number of empty slots stay in your squad. For example, if you are playing a Battle Royale Quads match and you lose three teammates, you can invite up to three enemy players to join your squad. However, in the DMZ and Unhinged Trios playlists, you have the option to squad up to six members

Using the assimilate function is quite simple. When you are in range of an enemy player, you can invite them to your squad by holding the button Whistle and then selecting Invite players to join your team. However, if you wish to join the enemy squad, you can send them a request to do so by selecting Request to join the nearby team. To bring up the Ping wheel, press and hold the directional key (controllers) or the middle mouse button (PC).

Make sure to use Proximity Chat to talk to enemy squads before using Assimilate to squad up. This will help improve communications, while also letting you know if you’re close enough to an enemy squad to send them an invite.
