Warzone 2.0 Season 4 Reloaded is set to feature new operators, weapons, and much more. Here’s an overview of everything coming in Season 4 Reloaded.
Infinity Ward will soon release the Season 4 Reloaded update for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0. With it, one new weapon and operators will be introduced to both titles. The Season 4 Reloaded update will reward players with double XP and double weapon XP.
For MW2 fans, there are two pieces of good news. The first is that the game will receive its Fourth and Last Special Ops Raid. Additionally, the update will introduce new core multiplayer maps to the game. Furthermore, the update will introduce a new shotgun to the weapon pool.
- Welcome to Battle Royale in Vondel. Resurgence will still be around, but for those Operators prepared for a traditional, high-intensity Battle Royale . . . Vondel is about to welcome up to 72 players to see which one — or which team — can conquer the city.
- Enter the New Gulag. Call of Duty veterans can feel at home in Vondel Castle’s wine cellar and dungeon, but anyone can learn how to master this arena for 1v1 duels.
- Additional Features. The Occupation Scan is coming back, along with the Signals Intelligence Contract and the Portable Redeploy Drone, all scheduled to be released within the Reloaded launch window.
Drop into Vondel Battle Royale
Ready to run this town? Then take all that Resurgence experience and get ready to drop back in for the traditional Battle Royale experience for the first time on Vondel. Up to 72 players can play in a Vondel Battle Royale match, and in the launch window, there will be dedicated Quads, Trios, Duos, and Solos Playlists.
Other than that, it’s a Warzone Battle Royale at its core. Encroaching circle collapses Loadout Drops, and limited lives with one opportunity — at most to earn a second chance through the Gulag.
Gulag Open in Vondel
Vondel has a dedicated Gulag at mid-season launch, as the wine cellar and dungeon beneath the Castle have been cleared, and there are way too many Operators thinking they can take that second chance for granted.
At its core, this Gulag is a three-lane map designed for 1v1 combat. The center features a circular structure with an opening facing the two main spawn points. This might feel familiar, and it should: It appears the architects responsible for Vondel’s Gulag took inspiration from a certain Prison Complex Showers.
Introducing Warzone Playlist Map Rotation in Resurgence
In Warzone, there is the main Al Mazrah Battle Royale map, two Resurgence maps — the newer map Vondel and Ashika Island — and some additional DMZ locations like Building 21.
In recognizing this and Call of Duty’s two-decade-long history and its future, a map rotation system – Rotating Resurgence Playlists – will be introduced to Warzone in Season 04 Reloaded for Resurgence modes only. After a certain amount of time specified in-game, the Rotating Resurgence Playlists will shift from Vondel to Ashika Island and vice versa for a given squad size.
Additional Features: Occupation Scan, Signals Intelligence Contract, P.R.D.
Occupation Scan in Effect
The Occupation Scan, an in-match event that Warzone veterans remember well from another island, is coming to Vondel due to increased hostile activity.
As Price would say, “maintain a low profile” and go prone or dive underwater when an Occupation Scan begins. Otherwise, the scan identifies and marks all Operators who fail to get down. Once that happens, there is a limited amount of time before Occupation Scan exposure runs out, so use that to your advantage.
Signals Intelligence Contract
Another new feature of the Vondel Battle Royale and Resurgence game modes is the Signals Intelligence Contract, which originally appeared in DMZ. Just like in DMZ, this Contract requires an Operator – or their squad – to go around hacking three contract phones.
However, this contract is now fine-tuned for Battle Royale and Resurgence – know that you are on the clock to get to these phones and try to stay alive to keep the cash flow going.
Portable Redeploy Drone (P.R.D.)
Warzone veterans know how this works for the most part: the drone’s miniature energy reactors help you ascend well above structures until it explodes. You can hop off the drone at any time or wait until it reaches its apex to get maximum height.
Unlike the Personal Redeploy Drones in the past, the Portable Redeploy Drone can only be employed by a single Operator. Instead of using cables attached to a drone, an Operator hangs onto the drone itself to fly high into the air.
This Vondel-only Field Upgrade will not be available in DMZ, so Operators heading into Extraction Zones should use those boots on the ground or a vehicle instead.
Late-Breaking Intel: DMZ
Before the Patch Notes drop on July 12, when more details will be revealed, in Season 04 Reloaded, DMZ players should expect new options for Plea for Help and new mechanics for Assimilation. Additionally, Squads specifically hunting other Players may find themselves the target of a new Hunt Contract.
MODERN WARFARE II OVERVIEW
- It’s Last Down. But Task Force 141 isn’t doomed. Welcome to the grand reveal of RAID: Atomgrad Episode 04, the epic conclusion to TF 141’s Special Operations in Modern Warfare II.
- Might Turn into a Ghost. Because that Ultimate Perk can be great on Vondel Waterfront, the new Multiplayer map where stealth maneuvers are your focus, rather than swimming underneath houseboats as you would in Vondel. Be a true 141 Operator and plan accordingly.
- Time to Play the Game. Ranked Play Season 04 is in full swing, and you have plenty of time — but not too much time — to complete the Battle Pass and reach the maximum Prestige Rank until Season 05 begins!
Vondel Waterfront Core Map
Like the Kunstenaar District, Vondel Waterfront is an area of the larger Warzone Vondel map that — as of Season 04 Reloaded — will be available for Multiplayer experiences.
However, unlike in the larger Vondel map, several changes to this area of town are made specifically to optimize 6v6 Multiplayer action. Operators cannot swim underneath the houseboats and must keep action mostly on “land” — the pontoon homes on the water and the decks connecting this district. Additionally, several buildings are boarded up, and two of the available four traversable buildings have new coats of paint – Red and Blue – that mark the most prominent positions on the map.
While using the water for stealth maneuvers is an effective strategy, consider employing the Ghost Perk, Dead Silence, Counter-UAVs, suppressors, and other tools to maintain a low profile.
- “You’re not the only one who wants payback.” – Billy Butcher, The Boys (Ep. 306) Homelander, Starlight, and Black Noir are ready to eliminate the opposition. . . . They also brought some new toys to play with, too.
- MX Guardian: Need something “up close and personal?” Unlocked via challenge through the Battle Pass, this highly versatile full-auto Shotgun is limited only by its effective range. Otherwise, it’s ready to deliver some devastating knockout blows.
- More in-Store. Whisker Tango and two Tracer Packs highlight the rest of the in-game Store. Also, get the free Prime Gaming Bundle before it rotates out on July 20.
“A fully-automatic 12-gauge shotgun with three rotating magazine tubes that hold 5 shells each.”
If pump and double-action Shotguns are designed for greater range and accuracy, the full-auto MX Guardian is here to dish out damage up close. Operators who challenge the MX Guardian within its effective range without taking cover should think twice; countering this new tool means getting out of its effective range or going full fisticuffs with a Riot Shield or Melee weapon.
A truly versatile platform, the MX Guardian, when properly equipped, grants access to semi-auto, burst-fire, and full-auto modes—all of which can be equipped with Slug rounds to give Battle Rifles a run for their money in the mid-range. For those ready to wield this power, know that it packs some serious recoil in addition to the limited range—though most would consider this a small price to pay for its powerhouse damage output and combat flexibility.
While the KV Broadside reigned supreme in close to mid-range engagements for a time, the MX Guardian has arrived to usurp the close-range crown. Equip the MX Guardian in your favorite close-quarters Loadout in Multiplayer or slot it in as an Overkill Secondary Weapon for room clearing in Warzone to maximize success.
The Boys Are Ready to Run This Town: Temp V and Camo Challenges
Temp V in Call of Duty . . . Temporarily
The Temp V Field Upgrade: Vought International’s proprietary blend that is near-perfect for anyone wanting to be a Supe.
Near-perfect, of course. Upon consuming it, Temp V grants one of four random superpowers in your Field Upgrade slot, though it doesn’t act like a usual Field Upgrade. Once you use Temp V, you’re then free to activate this power whenever you wish… But if you’re eliminated from combat before activating the power, it is lost upon death like a normal Field Upgrade.
Also, all traditional Field Upgrades appear to dispel Temp V’s effects… Operator test subjects picking up a Munitions Box, Dead Silence, or any other Field Upgrade lost that power (or the Temp V shot).
Here are the four different superpowers that Temp V can result in:
Charge Jump – Operators who love fast movement techniques — or maybe remember a Haunting or two —know how much a Charge Jump propels them across the map in leaps and bounds. Just like Queen Maeve, an Operator doesn’t suffer any fall damage when they land from a Charge Jump; in fact they deal splash damage to anyone or anything within a short radius of the Operator’s landing spot.
Electric Shockwave – Simply put, “electricity goes in, blast comes out.” This shockwave sends a powerful electrical explosion that injures Operators and AI Combatants and destroys vehicles and equipment. Think of this as a super-EMP that – like the other abilities – can help turn the tide of team fights.
Laser Vision: Upon activation, an Operator levitates and fires a laser beam that sears through enemy targets in whatever direction they are looking. It’s like one of many powers that Homelander has, but it does leave the user open to backfire.
Teleport: Forget normal on-foot navigation throughout Vondel’s; Teleport jumps an Operator forward in whatever direction they face, which is extremely helpful when trying to escape a fight or move unexpectedly to higher ground. And unlike when Hughie Campbell does it, your Operator Skin isn’t affected in any way – no lost clothing, in other words – whenever this happens.
As you might expect, Temp V is accessible all Warzone playlists, including DMZ, exceptRanked Play. The very best Ranked Warzone players don’t need a Temp V injection and should heed Starlight’s advice on their road to Top 250:
“You don’t need powers. You need to be human.” — Starlight, The Boys (Ep. 305)
Otherwise, expect Temp V to be much rarer in DMZ than Battle Royale modes.
Diabolical Camo Challenges
Diabolical Camo Challenges is the third installment of the new mid-season tradition: a set of challenges for every weapon class to prove your total arsenal mastery.
This time, the Diabolical Camo Challenge grants two camouflages, the first of which is a Vought-approved gray camouflage, which can be used on every weapon in a specific class once you complete that class’s specific challenge. Here are all the Diabolical Camo Challenges:
- Assault Rifles: Get 50 Operator headshots
- Battle Rifles: Get 25 Operator kills from behind
- SMGs: Get 250 Operator kills
- Shotguns: Get 30 Operator kills while prone
- LMGs: Get 30 Operator kills while using a suppressor
- Marksman Rifles: Get 30 Operator kills while mounted
- Sniper Rifles: Get 3 kills without dying 10 times
- Sidearms: Get 50 enemy longshot kills
- Launcher: Get 40 Operator kills
- Melee: Get 30 enemy kills
All these challenges, of course, need to be done while using a weapon from the designated category. And these challenges may align with other challenges for Daily rewards, Camos, or Calling Cards.
With that said, the term “enemy” refers to Operators and AI Combatants, such as the ones you see in DMZ. So, it may be easier to play some DMZ or the Multiplayer mode Invasion for the Sidearm and Melee challenges and pick off those AI Combatants instead.
Complete all ten to unlock a superbly diabolical (and extremely red) universal camouflage, which can be used on all weapons once unlocked, and a Weapon Charm, which proves mastery of this event.
