Warzone Overview

Fortune’s Keep

Fortune’s Keep is a mercenary hideout built atop a peaceful town with a rich history. It is an original Resurgence map created by High Moon Studios. Fortune’s Keep is roughly the same size as Rebirth Island and features four distinct POIs.

Town

A seaside community inspired by Mediterranean villages. It is filled with cobblestone alleyways and rooftops to move on. The town hosts a fortress in the center with a bell tower that commands the section of this map.

Smuggler’s Cove

An island used by pirates to hide their treasure from centuries ago. Smuggler’s Cove is loaded with supplies.

Winery

Inspired by three-lane maps, the Winery is a supply dome that features scavenging opportunities. It is closer to the bay, on the farthest side of the map.

New In-Game Features

Many new in-game features are coming to Fortune’s Keep. The following features are exclusive to Fortune’s Keep at first:

  • Black Market Run Contract: After accepting the contract, reach the Black Market Buy Station before the timer expires to claim items not available in the normal buy station. The items include Sequencer Grenade, Nebula V Minigun, or one of several classified weapons.
  • Cash Extraction: Players can get their hand on a huge amount of cash by sabotaging other players who are attempting to extract cash from the island.

New Caldera POIs

Storage Town

Raven Software is bringing back a large part of Warzone’s history. Storage Town is Warzone’s most iconic POI. The POI will replace Ancient Ruins to the southwest of Mines.

Caldera General Updates and New Features

A severe drought hit Caldera, causing rivers to dry up as mercenary forces add camps around the island. There are also new items and a vehicle coming to Caldera first, which should shake up modes like Plunder.

Armored SUV (In-Season)

Besides Redeploy Balloons, existing vehicles, and your own two feet, a new Armored SUV can be used to explore all the new areas in Caldera with an ample amount of defense. It includes a dedicated rooftop turret seat and room for Operators to use their own loadout weapons, making this one mean vehicle that begs to be used in the field.

ATMs

Get rich quickly by searching out ATMs in Plunder game modes. Throughout the match, funds periodically spawn near ATMs up to a maximum holding. Collect these bags of gold for a major Cash boost.

EMP Grenade

Disable vehicles and disrupt enemy players and AI using the EMP Grenade, a non-lethal tool that explodes in a short-lived area of effect. Affected players are stripped of their HUD information, while vehicles are momentarily powered down.

Golden Plunder Limited-Time Mode

The new Golden Plunder limited-time mode offers the Blood Money experience with more competition and a lot more glitz. Some of the changes Players can expect to see include:

  • The player count increased to 120, up from 100
  • Players drop more cash on death
  • Cash required for Victory increased to $5,000,000

The greediest of the bunch can also explore either of the following options:

  • Visit one of the malfunctioning ATM machines located on the map that seem to keep spewing out endless amounts of cash
  • Hunt down one of the infamous Golden Keycards, which is rumored to allow access to a bunker filled with all sorts of valuable new loot.

Maps

Mercenaries of Fortune brings two new Multiplayer maps that will challenge even the most tactical Operators. A familiar battleship launches alongside the start of the season, with a second map arriving midway through.

USS Texas 1945 (Launch)

“USS Texas 1945 challenges Operators to fight it out on an offshore battleship designed for tense long-range engagements on starboard and port and plenty of close-quarters action amidst its many confined interior locations. Set up on a power point and do your worst. A reimagining of the U.S.S. Texas map from Call of Duty: WWII, is a medium-sized map that’s moved from the white cliffs of Dover to the waters around Caldera.”

Desolation (In-Season)

“Deploy to a Pacific listening post in this small-to-medium-sized map set in a dense village littered with destruction. Large mountains and a vast landscape engulf the environment as you battle around the central building and along its creekside fortifications.”

Four New Weapons, Two in Battle Pass

Marco 5 (Launch)

A high mobility submachine gun, accurate from the hip with excellent close-range stopping power.”

For the highly mobile, aggressive player, there are few better options than rushing into battle with the Marco 5 SMG. It’s great for pushing into objectives, as its high mobility allows players to run circles around the enemy while they struggle to get a bead on their position.

Considering its relatively noticeable recoil and damage falloff at longer distances, the Marco 5 is best when fired from the hip at closer ranges. As the first SMG in Vanguard to feature the Akimbo Proficiency, players will soon wonder why they ever needed to aim down sights in the first place.

UGM-8 (Launch)

High fire rate, mobile LMG that excels at creating suppressing fire and pushing enemy positions.”

Combining high mobility with a high fire rate, the UGM-8 is ideal for players looking to keep pace with their teammates while offering suppressive fire.

Push Dagger (Launch Window)

“A blade with a T-shaped grip that allows for increased push power. Easily concealable and deadly in CQC.”

Built for speed and stealth, this new melee tool will be a great addition to loadouts where close-quarters fights and silent takedowns are critical to a mission’s success.

Operators can unlock it either through a bundle to be made available during Season Four or by completing one of two challenges:

In Multiplayer, get 5 Melee Kills with a Primary Weapon in a Single Match 15 times. (Hint: use the Bayonet attachment on a primary weapon for better lunge or the Fast Melee Perk for quicker maneuvers)

In Zombies, get 100 kills with a Melee weapon while shrouded by your Aether Shroud. (Hint: the new Shi No Numa experience, with interiors that could trap you with the undead often, can be a great way to get kills).

Vargo-S (In-Season)

Vargo-S (In-Season)

An essential armament for versatile play. This workhorse Assault Rifle offers a high-fire rate, steady aim through the sustained fire, and a quick reload, and that’s before adding any of its Gunsmith attachments.

Unlock both the Marco 5 and the UGM-8 for free through the Seasonal Battle Pass System; more information to come. Unlock the Push Dagger and the Vargo-S in one of two ways: through an in-game weapon-based challenge or via a Store Bundle to be released later this season, featuring a Weapon Blueprint from this weapon’s family.

New Operators — Captain Butcher Joins the Fight

New riches bring new opportunities. The legendary Captain Butcher and two other Operators join the fight this season. Welcome to Special Operations Task Force Immortal!

Carver Butcher (Launch)

“Quartermaster. Captain. First to the fight.

Butcher served in the British Army during Operation Devon, battling against the 16th Panzer Division. He was dismissed after sustaining injuries to his face from exploding shrapnel but returned to the front lines soon after. There he witnessed resistance fighters in action.

Inspired, went on to become the founder and recruiter for the Special Operations Task Force. The rest, as they say, is history.”

Callum Hendry (In-Season)

Callum Hendry (In-Season)

“All his life, Callum was a showoff, getting into trouble with neighbors, the law – everyone. His unwavering spirit helped him quickly ascend the ranks of the British Army to eventually become a recruit trainer. In World War II, Callum, harboring deep hatred for Nazis and their ideals, fought hard for a future without them. Currently, he is the trainer for all S.O.T.F. agents.'”

Ikenna Olowe (In-Season)

Ikenna Olowe (In-Season)

“Ikenna Olowe understood strategy from a young age. As a child in Nigeria, he excelled at chess, quickly surpassing his teachers. He grew strong studying Gidigbo, a martial battle of wits. Balances in body and mind, Ikenna joined the war effort as a battlefield engineer. His work established critical supply lines across the globe. Ikenna became a grand planner. Knowing when to build and when to demolish.​”
