Warzone In-Match Updates

During some Warzone Battle Royale matches, be aware of three new twists that can occur. These have an impact on the strategy and approach to gameplay and can happen in any given match without advance notice. When they happen, they will always occur mid-game.

A ‘Fire Sale’ temporarily discounts most of the items at a Buy Station up to 80% or even gives items out completely free. A Fire Sale is the perfect time to pick up a UAV, Armor Box for your squad, or even a lethal Killstreak. During a Fire Sale buying back a fallen teammate is completely free. If you’re short on in-match Cash, a Fire Sale might be the best chance to redeploy a squadmate. Note that even during a Fire Sale, Loadout Drops are not discounted.

A ‘Supply Chopper’ brings a non-lethal, but heavily armored helicopter to Verdansk. The helicopter will have a lot of health, and it will require a few rounds of bullets and maybe a rocket or two to bring it down. The helicopter will not shoot at you, but make sure that while you’re distracted enemy teams don’t take advantage. Once you destroy the Supply Chopper, it will drop high quality items for players to pick up. This includes three UAVS, two armor boxes and munitions boxes, a gas mask, a grenade launcher, and tons of Cash at a minimum.

When a ‘Jailbreak’ occurs, all players that have been eliminated will be released back into the match. Whether you were waiting for your 1v1 in the Gulag, or had been relegated to a spectator, now you’ll have another chance. You will get a one-minute notice before a Jailbreak happens to find additional armor or secure a weapon for your returning teammates.

*Note that these will only occur during some matches. A Jailbreak, Fire Sale, or Supply Chopper will not always occur during a Battle Royale match

Modes, Weapon Changes, and More Updates to Warzone

Three Limited Time Warzone Modes will debut during the Season:

In Juggernaut Royale, a Battle Royale mode variant, the massive Multiplayer Killstreak drops into Verdansk – three airdropped care packages, specifically, hold the Juggernaut suit. Head to one of the marked locations to capture and don the Juggernaut suit. Once you have it on, you’ll have higher health, a mini-gun, and a sweet music track to accompany you during the Warzone match. You’ll still be able to ride in vehicles and climb ladders, and your zero-fall damage will be accompanied by a ground pound of damage that impacts anyone in the immediate area. If any of the Juggernauts are sent to the Gulag, after a brief delay period, a new Juggernaut care package will be marked on the Tac-Map and deploy into Verdansk.

Realism in Warzone follows the same rules as the Multiplayer mode. You’ll have a minimal HUD and deal increased headshot damage. Make sure you make the most of it, but fire with precision.

Expand your squad in an intensive large team battle in Warzone Rumble. Battle in Verdansk in a 50v50 Team Deathmatch face-off. Gear up for the fight by finding weapons on the ground and work with your team to outlast the competition.

Modern Warfare Content: New Free Maps, Modes, and More

Zhokov Scrapyard – Standard Multiplayer (Launch)
Scrapyard, from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, makes its debut this season, and the small, fun, and frenetic map is just as veterans remember. Watch your six in this resting place for abandoned airplane parts as close quarters combat and even snipers can find success here.

Barakett Promenade – Ground War (Launch)
Warzone players will be in familiar territory in Barakett Promenade, the latest Ground War map, available at Season Four launch. Take advantage of building rooftops to add some verticality into your playstyle or come ready for close quarters combat and do a clean sweep of the interiors.

Trench – Gunfight (Launch)
As the name suggests, this Gunfight map is a network of interconnected trenches. Although players can exit the trench to move quicker throughout the map, you’ll expose your position to the enemy, so consider your options.

Additional Free Content: Multiplayer Modes and Missions

Three new modes including a classic, are scheduled to arrive during the Season:

In Team Defender, a single player must hold the flag while their teammates defend them. Use communication, intel, and powerful Killstreaks to counter the opposition.

One in the Chamber, a classic Free-For-All party game, starts players off with weapon and a single bullet. It only takes one shot to down an enemy, but make sure it’s on target or you’ll run out of ammo.

Take out your opponents in All or Nothing. In this Free-For-All mode, players have limited armaments: only a handgun and a Throwing Knife. Aim with precision and get the most kills to claim victory.

Two Weapons and More Free Content in the Season Four Battle Pass System

The Fennec is a fast-firing SMG with solid accuracy and excellent control. Ideal for close to medium ranged engagements, players can extend the range with the ZLR 18” Deadfall or the ZLR 16” Apex barrel attachments. Progress through the Battle Pass system to unlock a Legendary blueprint in its family at Tier 85.

The CR-56 AMAX assault rifle is extremely well-balanced with extra heat in the damage category to swiftly put down opponents. With great range and fire rate out of the box, players can kit out this weapon to increase its mobility, handling, and control to fit their playstyle. A Legendary blueprint in its family is available at Tier 100 alongside a vehicle skin, a Legendary skin for Captain Price, and Operator Missions to unlock more skins for Captain Price.

Get More when you Purchase Battle Pas

With a Battle Pass purchase, get Captain Price and his Operator Missions instantly at Tier 0 which also includes an Operator skin and Mission for Rodion, a new battle horn customization item, and a 10% XP boost that lasts the duration of the Season. Progress to Tier 100 to unlock Captain Price’s NVG-look with the ‘Nightfall’ skin in a packed tier that includes a Legendary blueprint, a vehicle skin, and more. 

Sound your battle cry with a new customization item – the battle horn. Instantly unlocked at Tier 0 of the Battle Pass, the ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ battle horn plays this familiar anthem when you charge into any fight, after an epic victory, or following a valiant defeat.

More skins for vehicles arrive this Season, so players can deck out their rides in Ground War or Warzone with distinct looks. Get five unique skins, each placed throughout the Battle Pass system, one for each of the drivable vehicles in Warzone.
