First look at new Warzone Verdansk 1980s revamp leaks in celebrity commercial

Verdansk is in for a 1980s themed revamp in the near future with new leaks arriving.

Published

on

A first look at what’s next for CoD Warzone has leaked via a celebrity commercial that was posted to Twitter.

The commercial, along with all accompanied videos of it, has since been deleted already. Activision has started to strike everyone and anything that tries to report on the actual images or videos itself. The video featured celebrities including Young Thug and Jack Harlow.

The leaked commercial give fans a first look at the next evolution of Verdansk in Warzone.

The commercial featured scenes showcasing the Verdansk map being ‘transformed’ into a 1980s version of itself. It looks almost like a version of Verdansk being rewinded back in time when things were still being built and pieced together.

The 1980s transformation comes as Activision looks to further bring the world of Cold War to life in Warzone.

We are unable to show you any images or videos from the leak in this article because of DMCA notice from Activision. The account that originally posted the video has also deleted it because of a DMCA request.

Verdansk 1980s

The newest, leaked commercial featured celebrities in a helicopter going through different areas of Verdansk as it transformed. The video focused on four key areas of the current Verdansk map, which are seeing major changes as it evolves into the Cold War era.

The locations included changes to the Stadium, Dam, Airport, and surrounding forestry currently in Verdansk. There were also some changes to Downtown.

In addition, the video also showcased the map in a very similar engine to the current Warzone, meaning we should not expect any engine changes.

The entire Stadium was transformed from the stadium into a wide open, under construction Stadium with only half of the area built with a crane in the other half continuing construction. It also showcased forest areas of the map changing to places with satellites and open towers.

The Dam was changed into a Bridge that connects the two areas, and the water was completely removed. The under part of it was wide open forest now, as it adds more to the overall map.

The commercial also showcased an underground rail area – 1980s themed, and a new Cold War-style plane in the Airport.

This one minute long trailer has been striked and removed from all areas online, as Activision is not ready to showcase the content yet. The trailer also looked to be still work in progress as there was no legal ratings or requirements in the entire video.

When will it release?

When this is supposed to launch remains to be seen, but if a commercial is in the final stages, then we should be expecting something soon. Season 3 of Warzone is expected on April 22, per the Battle Pass timer, and the countdown towards a ‘end’ has been teased by Activision for a while now.

VGC sources have stated that a ‘nuke event’ is set for April in Warzone. Zombies have been invading the map slowly but surely as the weeks of Season 2 have gone by.

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.

Published

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.

Published

on

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

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.

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.
