If you are curious about how the Warzone player count is doing with Season 1 well underway, we have the facts and figures. The Call of Duty battle royale offshoot is among the most popular in the genre, with the game seeing large numbers of players every day, week, and month.

Whether we're talking about the best weapons, weapon cases, Covert Exfils, or the player count, we have all the Warzone info you need.

The current average daily player count and 24-hour average peak for Warzone 2 is 123,594.

With Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 2 just around the corner, we can expect this to increase when the patch goes live. However, Fortnite is also immensely popular at the moment, so that may be stealing some of the attention.

Steam is the best gaming platform for tracking the concurrent player count of Warzone, as the database allows anyone to track the exact numbers. Unfortunately, Battle Net, PlayStation, and Xbox do not disclose player data.

It's worth noting that the data shown only tracks the number of users playing Warzone through the Steam client, while a substantial amount of players will be on Battle Net or console.

Back in Warzone's (WZ2) release month of November 2022, the title saw a concurrent player count of 250,000 to 480,000.

What is the all-time player count peak?

At its all-time peak on Steam in November, Warzone reached a staggering 488,897 concurrent player count.

It's safe to assume that significant numbers of players were playing through Battle.Net or on consoles, meaning the true number is likely much higher.

Do we know how many people play monthly?

Pinpointing the exact player count of Warzone 2 is impossible as Xbox, PlayStation, and Battle Net do not release the data.

According to ActivePlayer, Warzone 2 has a monthly active player count of roughly 70 million, but this number should be taken with a pinch of salt as the number is constantly changing, especially around the time an update is released.

Whether Warzone and MW3 are dying is a question that's regularly asked by members of the community. While we can only go off Steam data, it is clear that WZ's player count is trending downward overall, but that doesn't mean it's dying necessarily.

In December 2022, the average number of players sat at 178,335. This dropped to 96,141 in February 2023 and in July it reached 65,193.

It bolted back up over 90,000 in August, thanks to the release of a new season, but it dropped down by roughly 33% to 55,145 in September. Now, in February 2024 the game is sitting at an impressive 123,594 for the start of Season 1 Reload, but that's still lower than the the same time last year.

While these numbers constantly go up and down, it's relatively normal for a multiplayer game to see this type of volatility in its population.
