The Godzilla vs Kong Operation Monarch LTM in Warzone Pacific Season 3 offers gameplay opportunities that are brand-new to the battle royale. For those curious as to how this game mode works, let us explain.

Warzone players have been excited about the arrival of Godzilla and Kong for some time now, and although players were unsure of how these Titans would impact the battle royale, we now have a much better idea.

As well as Operator bundles for Kong and Gozilla, these monsters will also be featured on Caldera in a brand-new limited-time mode called Operation Monarch.

The way in which this mode works is fairly simple, as players have the opportunity to harness the power of these Titans in-game.

Warzone Operation Monarch explained

Starting May 11 and ending on May 25, players can select the Operation Monarch mode, which sees squads of 4 dropping into Caldera with a twist.

Operation Monarch has the Resurgence ruleset, meaning players will be able to drop back in so long as at least one of their teammates is alive and the respawn timer is still ongoing. Upon landing into Caldera, players will notice a “safe area” marked on their map.

The twist is that there are two massive Titans on the map, Kong and Gozilla, whose appearance offers unique gameplay opportunities.

Monarch Intel

Players will need to find and collect Monarch Intel, which can be found in “Supply Boxes, special drops, and fallen enemies.” Monarch Intel will charge a special meter that will unlock various items for players such as “Killstreaks and Loadout Drops.”

The most interesting aspect of this game mode is that once you fill your meter up to the top with Monarch Intel, players will earn the S.C.R.E.A.M. Device, which is a Killstreak that allows players to use either Godzilla or Kong’s power against enemy teams.

Players will need to select either Kong’s Ground Pound or Godzilla’s Heat Ray Breath when activating this Killstreak. Then, players will need to choose where they would like to direct this attack on Caldera. Only one Titan Killstreak can go off at one time, so don’t worry about getting completely bombarded.

Titan Frenzy

At the start of every match, and once during it, Kong and Godzilla will become enraged and attack recklessly, so beware.

This is known as the Titan Frenzy phase, which gives the player two choices: “tactically withdraw (run away) from these dangerous creatures or attempt to suppress them by dealing direct damage.”

You may be wondering why you would want to attack these Titans while they’re enraged, well the squad that deals the most damage during Titan Frenzy automatically receives a S.C.R.E.A.M. Device.

You will also receive Monarch Intel for simply doing damage to the Titans, so perhaps it is worth trying your best to get some shots off. Ultimately, the last standing squad that was able to avoid the power of the Titans and harness it will win the match.

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.



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.

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.
