NVIDIA announces DLSS coming to Warzone

NVIDIA has announced that DLSS technology is now coming to Call of Duty Warzone, allowing players to achieve better performance.

Published

NVIDIA has announced that DLSS features will be implemented into Call of Duty Warzone.

NVIDIA’s DLSS technology has helped gamers who own RTX graphics cards see much higher FPS (frames per second) while gaming than was previously possible. Games like Cyberpunk 2077 can see up to a 60% performance boost with the technology, making it a must-use for any gamer on a high refresh rate monitor.

For users who struggle to hit 60 FPS, this might also be your lucky break if you’re on an NVIDIA RTX graphics card. In areas of Verdansk where you see lower FPS, this setting should help you drastically, especially in the Downtown area.

If you’re aiming to hit maximum FPS values on a high refresh monitor, DLSS is also your best bet. You’ll see significant FPS increases in-game, which will make playing much smoother. If the DLSS implementation is similar to Modern Warfare, the best option to select will be the “performance” option.

What is DLSS?

According to NVIDIA’s website “Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) is an NVIDIA RTX technology that uses the power of AI to boost your frame rates in games with graphically-intensive workloads. With DLSS, gamers can use higher resolutions and settings while still maintaining solid framerates.”

Is this only for high resolutions?

No. You’ll see great improvements at 1440p and 4k resolution, but this also helps with high settings on 1080p. Many gamers opt to drop their graphics settings on a high-end graphics card to minimal, thinking the frame return will be huge. Instead, these players experience a much more watered down visual game experience when they could be playing on higher settings.

When DLSS drops, we recommend playing around with your game settings, so you can achieve good visuals with high refresh rates, which is what the technology is meant to be used for.

Beenox Comments

According to Executive Producer Eric Lavoie, “We (Beenox) were excited to bring NVIDIA DLSS to Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War this year. It was a great addition for our players to increase their game performance on PC and we look forward to bringing this to Warzone.”

We are currently unsure of the release date of this feature but will update when we hear more.

What are High Value Loot Zones in Warzone Season 3?

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded introduces High Value Loot Zones, special areas that include powerful loot, rare items, and plenty of cash.

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded is set to be one of the most game-changing updates in recent memory, and the introduction of High Value Loot Zones may prove to be one of the biggest additions in the update. 

When you land in Warzone, the aim of the early game is to loot up. That means hunting for valuable ground loot, or opening supply boxes in the hopes of pulling out a high-rarity item. 

Because the early game is so crucial, many players like to drop in the same location every time. While the loot available in these POIs is never the exact same, it’s useful to find an area where a decent amount of loot spawns and head to that spot. 

With that in mind, Warzone developers Raven Software are trying to pry players away from landing in the same place repeatedly, and the arrival of High Value Loot Zones may just be the perfect way to do that.

What are Warzone’s High Value Loot Zones?

High Value Loot Zones are areas across Caldera that offer rare items and a ton of cash to players who decide to land there. These are designed as high-risk, high-reward areas as they’re likely to be contested by several players.

If you emerge victorious from the early engagements, the high-quality loot should set you up for success until the endgame. Players looking to utilize their Custom Loadouts as soon as possible will want to explore High Value Loot Zones.

Speaking with CharlieIntel, Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins explained that the team noticed a “real tendency to just keep dropping in the same location,” and these new High Value Loot Zones will encourage players to drop into new areas they may not have visited. 

“Now that we’ve got Redeploy Ballons, maybe you’ll rotate to one mid-game because you know there’s going to be more loot there, refreshing over time,” Timmins stated. “Equally, one of the things we hear a lot is players coming back from the Gulag feel like there’s not many places they can land and re-equip themselves.”

Where to find High Value Loot Zones in Warzone?

When players are launching into a match and look at their map, they will see that certain POIs have a dollar sign beside them, indicating that they are a High Value Loot Zone. 

These areas will have high-tier loot and plenty of cash for competitors to use to buy Loadouts or Streaks. 

During the wide-ranging interview with Timmins, the Senior Creative Director confirmed that the High Value Loot Zones would appear first as part of Operation Monarch and perhaps later on in Season 3. We now know that they’ll be making their way to Battle Royale playlists following the Season 3 Reloaded update.

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded brings one of the most game-changing updates CoD’s battle royale has ever seen. One of the powerful new additions is the Redeploy Extraction Token so here’s how it works and how to get it.

With Warzone’s Operation Monarch event and its challenges wrapping up, Raven Software are bringing the Season 3 Reloaded update on May 25. This has already been considered one of the biggest updates Warzone’s ever seen, with it bringing the Underground Transit System to Caldera, the Serpentine Perk, new modes, and more.

Long-time Warzone players will recognize one of the new additions — the Redeploy Extraction Token. Here’s everything you need to know about this powerful new item, including what it does and how to get it.

Redeploy Extraction Tokens arrive in Caldera with Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, and grant players an “automatic redeploy without any need to visit the Gulag or to be bought back at a Buy Station.”

If a player dies with the Repeploy Extraction Token in their inventory, they’ll be immediately thrust back into the fight without their teammates needing to find a Buy Station to redeploy them.

The Token will deactivate once the Gulag closes in the endgame, but Raven confirmed that players who are still holding onto one will receive a cash prize as compensation.

Warzone’s Redeploy Extraction Tokens are an extremely rare find, being even rarer than the Legendary Gulag Entry Token.

Although rare, the Redeploy Extraction Tokens will be part of the standard loot pool so there’s all the more reason to keep looting chests once you’ve got your loadout.

All Rebirth Island updates in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded

Here are all the changes to the Rebirth Island map included in the Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded update patch.

There is a plethora of brand-new content in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded, and here are all the major changes to Rebirth Island after the arrival of this update.

The Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded update features plenty of new content for the Call of Duty battle royale title, including the H4 Blixen SMG as well as an Underground Transit System.

You’ll also notice some major changes when dropping into the Rebirth Island, such as the addition of a brand-new mechanic. We’ll go over all the Rebirth Island updates in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded.

Warzone Rebirth Island Occupation Scan in-game event

The Call of Duty blog detailed all the new changes to Rebirth Island, and one of these is the new Occupation Scan in-game event that reveals your position to enemies in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded — unless you’re prone.

The radar towers on Rebirth Island can scan for players across the map. When you hop into Rebirth Resurgence, you’ll be alerted of Occupation Scan taking place at some point during the match.

When this happens, you’ll need to go prone in order to keep your position hidden from enemy minimaps. This effect has a short duration and so you just need to wait for it to pass before standing up again.

The Season 3 Reloaded blog post also hinted at the arrival of a Rebirth Island event that’s currently shrouded in mystery. It mentions that the radar towers have been hacked by hostile forces, and mercenary forces are currently stationed somewhere on the map.

It’s believed that these mercenaries are planning to attack the Alliance on Rebirth Island, so Operators will have to strike at the enemy base first. The blog post concludes with the promise of more details on extraction protocols and new assignments.

At the time of writing, it remains to be seen exactly when this event will take place. We might see it occur throughout the rest of Season 3, or it may arrive as part of the Warzone Pacific Season 4 update.
