Le skill-based matchmaking or " Skill-Based Matchmaking (SBMM) in English, is not a new concept of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. SBMM has been present in Call of Duty games since 2004. This feature is controversial and divides the gaming community. One of the criticisms is that this system makes matches excessively difficult and competitive. 

For this reason, players are wondering if it is possible to disable this feature in the Warzone 2 game so that they can play in less competitive games. It is possible to find videos and some articles on forums claiming that it is possible to deactivate, but is this really the case?


Can we disable Skill-Based Matchmaking on Warzone 2?

No, it is not possible to disable SBMM on Warzone 2 for the moment. No plans to make this feature disableable have been announced, so don't expect to be able to disable SBMM anytime soon.

As a reminder, the SBMM is a system that fills the lobbies with players of the same level in order to balance the games. By grouping together players of the same level, the risk of a high-level player dominating a lobby is reduced.

It is always possible to modify the settings and filters when you search for a game in order to find players in the same state of play as you. However, impossible to deactivate the SBMM on Warzone 2.
