The Plunder mode offers different ways to deposit your hard earned cash so no one can steal them. Cash Deposit Helipad & Cash Deposit Balloon are ways to do so, but using them will cause smoke that will warn other players.

No Gas For Plunder Mode

Unlike Battle Royale Mode, there is no collapsing circle in Plunder mode, letting your team explore the map as you see fit. In fact, exploration is encouraged to gain more cash.

Teams exposed with the Crown or Bag icon will also have a circle around these icons. The smaller these circles are, the more cash these teams carry. Use it to determine if robbing them is worth your effort.

Warzone Plunder Mode Tips

Deposit Cash With Balloons On Roofs

Deposit Cash With Balloons On Roofs

When trying for a deposit, using the balloon on roofs of high buildings may be safer as entryways to the roof section may be limited. However, if fighting there is not an option, a structure with an exposed roof may be your best bet.

Make Use Of Smoke Grenades

Whether its the Helipad or Balloons, making a deposit will often expose you. Use Smoke Grenade or Smoke grenade launchers on assault rifles to cover your cash deposits.

Make use Of Vehicles As Mobile HQ

Make use Of Vehicles As Mobile HQ

Vehicles grant your team some protection and better mobility, letting you cross territories fast for fresh cash looting. And sometimes, it's better to just drive away than be stuck in a firefight, so try to find a vehicle quickly. Note that Launchers make short work of vehicles so be ready to bail.
