If you block someone on Call of Duty Warzone, the player will not be able to play with you. Blocked players will not be able to see when you are online, and will not have access to join any games you have created as they will not be shown on the ‘Open Games’ tab.

Will you know if someone blocked you on Warzone?

The only way another Warzone player will know you have blocked them is if they try and join your game. If they do, they will receive a notification stating that they have been blocked.

Because your open seats will not appear for them, they will only be able to try and access your game if another player sends them a direct link.

Another way in which a player can check if they have been blocked is if they add you as a ‘Friend’.

If you are trying to ‘remove a friend’ on Warzone but it is not allowing you to make any changes, this will be because that user has already removed you from his friend list, or he has blocked you. When this happens, your rights to ‘Manage’ the friendship gets revoked.

You should see a ‘locked’ symbol by the user’s name if this is the case.

Another reason why the remove friend option is locked would be if the player is from a different system playing CoD and is using the crossplay feature.

This game would involve deploying soldiers from your deck and using action cards to confirm how the soldiers on your card would respond on the battlefield.
