Call of Duty: Warzone adds a few twists to the battle royale formula. Most notably, players can respawn once per match, or buy back their fallen allies. But on Friday, Infinity Ward added a new kind of playlist: BR Trios Classic.

In BR Trios Classic, players cannot collect cash, complete contracts, buy loadouts, or enter the Gulag and respawn. This new mode is a major shift for Warzone players, as the game’s Gulag and cash systems help it stand out from other battle royale modes.

In a patch late Monday night, Infinity Ward updated Warzone and made the Gulag weapons full-auto — they used to be mostly pistols and single-fire weapons. Players have since complained about the change on the Warzone subreddit, saying the change removed some of the Gulag’s dance-like combat.

But with BR Trios Classic, players won’t need to worry about the Gulag changes at all. Instead, a single death means you’re done for good, and will need to cheer on your allies from the sidelines, instead of waiting for a buy-back.

BR Trios Classic is currently live in Call of Duty: Warzone.
