Season four is finally here, and some big changes are coming with it. As is standard with a new season, there are new multiplayer maps, operators, guns, and a new battle pass, but a lot of this season’s changes unsurprisingly affect Warzone. While there have been no changes to the map as many expected, these changes still could come mid-to-late season. What has changed are the weapons that can be found on the floor and in crates, as well as a few new mid-game events that can totally change the tide of the match.
Starting off with the battle pass, the featured operator is Captain Price as expected, and new weapons the Fennec SMG and CR-56 AR (Which long time COD players are more familiar with calling the Vector and Galil). These guns are unlocked fairly early in the battle pass, and are unlocked for all players, not just those who purchase the battle pass. The pass also includes some of the coolest looking weapon blueprints we have seen yet, as well as vehicle skins, new vehicle horns, charms, stickers, banners, and everything else we have grown accustomed to.
As of now, there are three new maps: Tench (a gunfight map), Zhokov Scrapyard – a map from MW2 which is also. a section of the Boneyard ground war map, and the boneyard in Warzone – and Barakett Promenade – a ground war version of the promenade in Warzone.
In terms of Warzone, the early game “floor loot” has changed quite substantially, with the FAL, RAM-7, M13, MP7, Bizon and others replacing guns such as the Uzi, Oden, P90, Famas and others, and the M4 blueprint switching to a 3-round burst.
New events have also been added, at points during the mid-game, there is a random chance of a “Fire Sale” or “Jailbreak” to occur. In a fire sale, everything at the shops in-game are heavily discounted, and self revives and player buy-backs are free. This only lasts a minute however and can cause heavy conflict over buy stations. A jailbreak means that everyone waiting in the Gulag, and everyone spectating is able to drop back into the game. This along with the return of Most Wanted Contracts means that all is not necessarily lost when you are down to just one teammate left alive and that spectating a match can be well worth your while.
The season roadmap shows that this is not all that we are getting this season. New operators Gaz and Roze will be joining the battle soon, along with another map: Cheshire Park, and new weapons: the Rytec AMR and Kali Sticks. Also, we will be getting three more multiplayer game modes: Team Defender, All or Nothing, and One in the Chamber.
