Now let's go to the next step!

Step 3 – Mask and configure your IP address

Your IP address is the most crucial security step that will make or break everything you did before to get you banned from Call Of Duty Warzone 2. The best way to change your IP address is to use a VPN service or proxy server (proxies need a great setup to prevent disconnections and show your IP, so let's stick with the VPN).

I recommend using NordVPN because they havededicated IP addresseswhich means you will be the only person connecting to their Call Of Duty Warzone 2.

Why is dedicated IP important?

Because you will have a new IP address just for you, from which no one else will be able to connect.

The shared servers of all VPN services are public to everyone with a subscription, which means that the chances of someone already having a public IP banned in Call Of Duty Warzone 2 are very high.

I can't find a completely free working method to get around the ban, but this is the cheapest one to have. You can add the "Dedicated IP" option on the checkout page.
