Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s YOLO Mode Isn’t For The Faint-Hearted


While the multiplayer portion of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is where the magic is at, the single-player experience Infinity Ward has plenty to offer and becomes even more difficult once you complete it on Specialist.

Detailed through the Activision Blog, the YOLO(you only live once) mode is unlocked once you complete the campaign on Specialist, given you one life alongside the parameters of the Specialist mode. This means, if you die once, you have to start the whole game again.

To keep things realistic, Infinity Ward have taken away health regeneration and limited the amount of room for equipment and other restrictions to ruin your day.

Check out some tips from the developer below:

  • You can only heal with Nano Shots, there is no health regeneration in this mode.
  • Helmets are your only protection from headshots. They will take permanent damage and will need to be replaced.
  • Both Nano Shots and helmets take up equipment slots, so remember to equip them in your loadout on the Retribution before each level.
  • Master the lean from behind cover mechanic, which will be critical for your survival. Approach the edge of cover while standing or crouching, and aim down sights when you see a chevron appear on the side of your crosshairs. You will auto-pop from behind cover as you ADS.
  • If you get shot in the legs, it will impact your movement. If you get shot in either arm, it will impact your ability to use equipment or aim down sights. Note: Your weapon can be shot out of your hands.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is available on November 4th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
