A new feature introduced in the DMZ is the Bartering system, which lets you submit specific items you find while exploring the map in exchange for unique items. This article is a comprehensive guide to all Barter recipes in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0’s DMZ.

Bartering System in DMZ

To access the Bartering system, visit any Buy Station on the DMZ map. The Bartering window will appear, displaying a list of recipes that you can complete by submitting the required ingredients.

The new barter system introduced in Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 DMZ offers players an innovative way to exchange scavenged items at Buy Stations, rather than trading directly with other players. This system utilizes recipes, which are essential ingredient lists required to obtain desired items.

Players can find these recipes at Buy Stations scattered throughout the maps. These lists are fixed and can be memorized for efficient bartering. While most recipes remain consistent across all maps, Building 21 and Ashika Island locations boast a few exclusive barter options within their Buy Stations.

Barter Recipes and Ingredients

Below is the complete list of Barter recipes and their corresponding ingredients available in DMZ.

Acquiring these unique items through the Bartering system will give you a competitive edge over other players, increasing your chances of surviving and winning the game. Some items, like the 3-plate Comms Vest or the Durable Gas Mask, can provide valuable protection and utility in high-stakes situations.
