Here’s everything you need to know about the Warzone Pacific Season 3 map changes for Caldera arriving on April 27.

New Warzone Caldera POI Dig Site

Warzone Pacific’s Season 3 update will bring some exciting map updates and a new POI to Caldera. Here’s every map change arriving in Warzone Pacific Season 3.

After a ton of criticism was aimed at Caldera’s map design, the Warzone Pacific island will continue to undergo changes throughout Season 3. These changes are being made in an effort to improve the overall battle royale gameplay experience for players.

POI distribution has always been a hot topic and it turns out several areas will undergo significant changes in Warzone Pacific Season 3. Here’s every map change that Raven Software have planned for Caldera in Season 3.

Warzone Season 3 Caldera map changes

Peak

At the start of Season 3, players will receive changes to Peak, which is something they’ve been asking for since the introduction of Caldera. Although Peak is considered a hot drop, the awkward positioning of a massive mountain in the middle of the map, makes it hard to rotate.

Luckily, players received Redeploy Balloons to alleviate this issue slightly. In addition, Season 3 changes that see a fortified version of Peak emerge could result in a more rewarding experience for players who venture up the mountain.

As you can see in the image, Peak is no longer under construction. Players will now be able to enter buildings and towers across Peak that are fully built up.

You’ll also be able to get around easier by using “new exterior and interior ascenders to quickly travel between old and new floors of this area, or drop down to the core to see some of the upgrades made to the otherwise natural structure.”

Lagoon

In Season 3, Lagoon will be getting a much-needed update, which sees a “receding tide” revealing a new path to the Lagoon.

This new area uncovered by the low tide is another place for players to find items and loot, as the devs state, “you may have already been down underneath the bridge and waded through the waters, but with this tide shift, it’s worth seeing what washed up and exploring the area for items.”

Players will be able to use this new uncovered path to “check enemies at the Lighthouse, a spot that towers over the Lagoon and the surrounding area.”

Runway

Along with POI updates, you’ll notice that Caldera’s skies are darker than usual. There’s no telling if this will last throughout the entire season but it looks like there will be a menacing atmosphere across the island to suit Operation Monarch.

You can see these dark skies at the Runway POI alongside a new set of barracks and hangars, which offer new “scavenging opportunities,” where players may even find one of the new weapons. You’ll also notice that a ton of jungle foliage has been removed in an attempt to improve visibility on the map.

Runway will also include “a few decommissioned planes that could act as cover, as well as a few guard towers and water towers for getting a better survey of the area.” Although visibility is set to improve, rotating out of Runway may prove difficult with less cover, but luckily the POI tends to have plenty of drivable vehicles to help rotation.

New Dig Site POI

Last but not least. players will receive a new POI called Dig Site. This location perfectly fits the theme of colossal monsters and hidden secrets in Classified Arms. In the images we’ve seen of Dig Site, players can see the skull and bone remains of an ape-like and serpent-like creature.

Of course, this ties in perfectly with the Godzilla vs Kong event that the new season is highlighting. Dig Site can be found between the Mine and Ruins POIs. Once there, you can “rummage through abandoned excavation equipment, tents, and massive skeletons for Supply Boxes and other items.”

Given the interest in both movie monsters, Dig Site is likely to become a hot drop in Season 3 as players attempt to discover hidden mysteries on the island.

New Warzone Pacific Season 3 Gulag – The Hold

The Hold Gulag Warzone

The Warzone Pacific Season 3 update doesn’t just bring changes to the island, but it also introduces a new layout for the Gulag. Eliminated players will now have to visit the Hold for Warzone Pacific Season 3’s Gulag for a chance to redeploy.

This new Gulag is a three-lane close-quarters area, “themed for an island in peril.” The Hold is a symmetrical arena, which has both central lanes and perimeter corridors that suit “close-quarters weapon.”


As Caldera transforms from a sunny paradise to a dark place of destruction and calamity, you’ll have plenty of new areas to discover when the update goes live on April 27.

Warzone players call for devs to remove Shotguns after Season 3 Reloaded damage nerfs

Many now feel that Warzone’s Shotguns are pointless after the damage nerfs that came with the Season 3 Reloaded update.

Warzone Pacific players are pretty disappointed with the Shotgun nerfs in the Season 3 Reloaded update, with some even claiming the weapon category should be removed entirely.

While some of the changes introduced in the Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded update are being praised, some are not too happy with the weapon buffs and nerfs, especially when it comes to the Shotgun category.

Shotguns aren’t the most meta weapons to use in Warzone, but they have previously held their own in close-range battles. With the recent health pool change, the devs decided to nerf the damage of a variety of Shotguns, causing some discontent in the community.

SMGs have dominated the close-range battles in Warzone Pacific, leaving hardly any room for Shotguns to excel.

Things have now seemingly gotten worse for Shotguns in the Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded update, as the Streetsweeper, Gallo, JAK-1, Origin 12, R-90, and Gracey Auto all had their damages reduced by 20%.

Reddit user Gtaher0 highlighted these changes with the caption “Holy Jesus,” indicating a sense of shock.

Users in the comments have chipped in, also shocked about the changes and slightly disappointed, with one player even feeling as if Shotguns should be removed from the loot pool: “Remove shotgun ground loot.”

This is mainly because, as another user states, “some shotguns don’t even have enough rounds needed to down some players.”

On the other hand, some aren’t that bothered, feeling as if most of the Shotguns that were nerfed are rarely used anyway: “Jak12 and Streetsweeper were pretty nutty. Other ones I never saw used in-game over the last 3 months.”

Warzone players satisfied with “amazing” new Squad HUD feature

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded brought some new content to the game, including a Squad HUD feature which players are loving.

Warzone Pacific players have been enjoying the new Squad HUD feature which came with the Season 3 Reloaded update, with some calling it “amazing.”

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded is finally here, and while players are getting to grips with the new Underground Transit System on Caldera, some are also very satisfied with the new Squad HUD feature.

This new feature gives players a clear view of the team’s resources, including the Killstreaks they are holding, the amount of money, the number of Armor Plates they are carrying, and also if they have a Gas Mask.

Although it seems like a small feature, the community is loving it, with some even describing it as “amazing.”

Reddit user Mobile750APKStore put a post up in the Warzone subreddit highlighting the new expandable Squad HUD in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded.

The feature is a nice quality of life change that gives players a better view of their teammates’ resources. This will improve the communication and flow of the game, as players will easily be able to see what their squad needs, without even having to ask or wait for a response.

The community has been reacting to this new feature in the comments of this Reddit post, with one user stating that the Squad HUD is “amazing.” In the same breath, the user hilariously also claims that it is a hindrance when it comes to lying about the number of plates you have:

“This is amazing…But now I can’t lie to my teammates about having no plates :(.”

Of course, this is actually great when it comes to teamwork, as players who lie about the number of plates they have can now be caught out and will be encouraged to share with the team.

Aside from the comedic comment, others also seem very happy with the new feature, especially as it has been asked for by the community in the past. One comment said, “I remember seeing that post and loving it. Thrilled to see that it’s become a reality.”


Hopefully Raven can continue to bring features like this to the game and make players happy. For more, check out how the brand new Champion of Caldera LTM works.

Call of Duty players are terrified that last-gen consoles will ruin Warzone 2

Fans of the battle royale are concerned that Warzone 2’s potential compatibility with last-gen consoles could ruin the game.

Published

Warzone 2 PS4 Xbox One

Players are hoping that the highly anticipated sequel does not include past-gen compatibility, as they fear this could completely ruin the Warzone 2 experience for current-gen users.

The next Call of Duty era is right around the corner, and excitement for Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 has begun to mount ahead of June 2022. Leaks have revealed several details of the battle royale sequel including a new interrogation system and a sneak peek at what the map could look like.

Despite the overwhelmingly positive reaction at this early stage, there are players who are wary of yet to be confirmed aspects of Warzone 2. One of these unknowns is the result of the game’s compatibility with past-gen consoles.

Ghost in Call of Duty Warzone

As it stands, there has not been confirmation concerning Warzone 2’s compatibility with past-gen consoles. While we know for sure that the game will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S, past-gen compatibility has not been confirmed.

However, thanks to Vanguard in-game files, data miners discovered that Modern Warfare 2 will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. This reveal did not sit well with players who took to the Warzone subreddit to discuss the repercussions of a similar experience for Warzone 2.

The player who wrote the original post believes that the overall performance and quality of Warzone 2 could suffer if it has to cater to past-gen hardware. This player is worried that the same limitations holding the current iteration of Warzone back could also plague the sequel.

The comments proved that players were completely split on the issue. Some point to the shortage of current-gen consoles as a valid reason for making Warzone 2 accessible to all, “isolating people cause they don’t have new consoles is stupid and not enough people are on new gen consoles anyway.”

While others had less sympathy, stating that at a certain point developers need to move the overall experience to the next level, “once the new s*** comes out, you need the new console for the new experience and the better graphics etc.”

Early reports from renowned leaker Tom Henderson initially revealed that Warzone 2 would only release on current-gen consoles and PC, but he did not rule out the possibility of a separate version for past-gen players. This solution is similar to what the original post details, but we’ll have to wait for official confirmation from the devs to find out if this is even possible.
