Call Of Duty Season 3 Reloaded Will Bring Fast Travel To Warzone, New Map And Weapon For Vanguard
The Call of Duty Season 3 Mid-Season Update will go live for both Vanguard and Warzone following a May 24 update on Vanguard at 10am PT/1pm ET, and a Warzone update at 9pm ET. am PT/12 p.m. will include a multiplayer map for Vanguard, while a new fast travel system is coming to Warzone.
Boiler Champion LTM
A new mode is coming to Caldera for the mid-season update. This solo mode will feature a maximum of 150 players and a single circle that continually closes. All players will arrive with their custom gear, a gas mask, and a single redeploy extraction token. Additionally, kills in this mode immediately replenish the player’s health, gear, and ammo, incentivizing players to play aggressively.
fast travel system
One of the major changes coming with Warzone’s mid-season update is the new fast travel system in Caldera. This new underground transit system will feature 14 access points, indicated on the Warzone Tac map and minimap by a silver “vault door” symbol.
Fast travel in Caldera sounds similar to subway travel in Verdansk. To travel through the mine cart to another hub area, players will simply need to interact with the circular hatch and walk towards the cart. By doing so, the name of the fast travel destination will appear on the screen. After a few seconds of travel time, the player will instantly appear at their destination. Light and audio cues will allow players to figure out if an enemy is waiting at the other end of the fast travel location, or if the collapse of the circle will soon engulf the destination. A green light means it is safe to travel fast, but anything else can indicate potential danger.
Season 3 Reloaded also introduces a new perk for Warzone. Vanguard’s Serpentine perk is added to help players sprint around the map more safely, as with the Serpentine perk, sprinting reduces incoming damage from bullets, explosives, and fire by 20%. Players who shoot an enemy using Serpentine will gain a “snake” indicator to let them know they need to deal more damage.
New loot items
Three new lootable items will be added to Warzone: the Gulag Entry Token, Redeploy Extraction Token, and Speed Boost items.
Gulag Entry Tokens will be found in supply crates for standard Battle Royale matches. These tokens will allow eliminated players to have another shot at the gulag, if they have a gulag entry token. The Redeploy Pull Token works in a similar way. This token will allow eliminated players to get right back into the fight and bypass the gulag. And finally, Speed Boost is another rare item that will appear in some supply crates. The Speed Boost item will automatically grant a player a temporary movement buff.
High Value Loot Zones
High-value loot zones originally introduced in Season 3’s Operation Monarch Limited Time Mode will now be available in standard Battle Royale matches. These high value loot zone locations will be random each match, but the areas will be marked with a dollar sign and will offer higher quality loot.
Rebirth Island in-game event
Warzone’s smaller map will also have an in-game event to tie into the Season 2 Reinforced event narrative. The occupation scouting event is vague, but Activision says that at some point during Rebirth Resurgence’s standard matches, players may be alerted to an “occupation scan”. At this point, they must be turned face down, or else their position will be revealed to all other players on the tactical map and minimap.
This appears to be teasing an additional event for map changes or even a completely new map, as the publisher says the Occupancy Scan should keep players “even more on their toes on an island they may need to escape from…” .
Additionally, Activision says that Season 3 Reloaded will feature numerous quality of life updates, including a new “squad notice screen,” which the publisher says will have the details revealed in the patch notes for the big update.
New map, weapon and operator.
Vanguard’s mid-season update brings a new operator, weapon, and multiplayer map. Sphere is described as a small multiplayer map that takes place inside a weapons lab. The new weapon in Season 3 Reloaded will be the H4 Blixen machine gun, which is described as a weapon that offers mobility and precision in medium-range engagements. This weapon will be available to unlock for free with a Weapon Challenge or purchased with a cosmetic pack.
And lastly, Kim Tae Young is the final Operator of Task Force Harpy from Season 3. She will be available to unlock her by purchasing her Operator Pack. Tae Young is described as a masked fighter, whose favorite weapon is the upcoming H4 Blixen submachine gun.
The Mid-Season Update will introduce the Spilled Ink Pack, which includes an Operator skin with tattoos designed by high-profile tattoo artists, like Ink Master’s Ryan Ashley. Additional Season 3 Reloaded packs will include Vanguard weapon Mastercraft skins, and one of the packs will be themed around Zombies mode.
While the Vanguard content continues, leaks are already emerging for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, claiming changes to gear drops and revealing map details. Plus, here’s everything we know about Infinity Ward’s upcoming Modern Warfare 2 release and the Warzone sequel.
