How to use the Contraband Workbench in DMZ

Turn that contraband into gold.

The DMZ mode for Warzone 2.0 has been extremely popular, with players competing to complete tasks with their squad on the Al Mazrah map before escaping in one piece. However, as with any game experience, certain elements have caused some frustration for players. Collecting loot from both AI and opposing playing results in picking up contraband. But weapons found are often mismatched, having useless attachments, which means they’re practically useless in terms of gameplay. But that has changed with a new feature introduced in Warzone 2 Season 3. So, how do you use the Contraband Workbench in DMZ?

Now when you pick up a weapon in DMZ, you can take it to a Buy Station. Each Buy Station now has a Contraband Workbench near it, which you can activate to modify contraband weapons you have found. You’ll need to spend a small amount of cash, but when you do, you’ll be able to freely swap attachments on your contraband weapons.

You’ll be able to attach any attachments you’ve unlocked, turning a seemingly useless contraband item into a fully equipped five-attachment killing machine loaded with your favorite suppressor, thermal optics, magazine, and more. This is a great addition to a great game, allowing players more flexibility in playing the way they want to play and with the gear they’ve worked hard to unlock. See you in the DMZ.
