Season 3 Reloaded of Vanguard and Warzone Pacific is expected to release on May 25 and the new Season 3 Reloaded content plan has offered a glimpse at what players can expect.

Vanguard and Warzone Season 3 Reloaded is right around the corner and the midseason update will deliver a ton of new content for players to enjoy. Warzone players in particular have a ton of exciting new features to look forward to.

A new LTM will be making its way to Season 3 Reloaded, alongside a new Rebirth Island feature, a new Warzone Perk, and several new items that are bound to shake up the battle royale. Here’s a breakdown of the Vanguard and Warzone content set to arrive with the Season 3 Reloaded update.

Vanguard Season 3 Reloaded content

Kim Tae Young Operator

The final member of Task Force Harpy will hit Vanguard and Warzone on May 25. Her preferred weapon is the new H4 Blixen SMG, so if you’re looking to level up the weapon as fast as possible, you’ll want to fight as Kim Tae Young.

The masked figure has a reputation as a folk hero and keeper of justice. To unlock Kim Tae Young in Season 3 Reloaded, players must purchase her bundle.

H4 Blixen SMG

Vanguard players will get to test out a new SMG when the Season 3 Reloaded content goes live on May 25. The devs explained that the H4 Blixen is the ideal SMG for medium-range gunfights.

It is indeed a slow-firing SMG and the devs even compare it to the Owen Gun. If comparisons turn out to be accurate, the H4 Blixen could be just as lethal in Warzone.

If the H4 Blixen can rival the Owen Gun it could possibly take over the SMG meta, but the devs have warned of its tricky recoil pattern. Nonetheless, you can check out our guide on how to unlock the H4 Blixen if you’re eager to test the weapon after the update.

New Vanguard map Sphere

As teased in the Season 3 update, Vanguard players will receive a brand-new map to enjoy alongside Mayhem. Sphere is an underground weapons lab with multiple floors to discover.

“Operators who best navigate the various ins and outs between the upper and lower environments are likely to gain the upper hand in combat, no matter the mode.”

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded content

Vanguard’s Serpentine Perk coming to Warzone

Following the Classified Arms Reloaded update, Serpentine will be available as a Perk 1 in Warzone Pacific. The Perk is described as follows:

“Sprinting reduces incoming damage from bullets, explosives, and fire by 20%.”

This Perk is made to counter Sniper Rifles from one shot killing players at a considerable distance. If you use the Serpentine Perk and are actively on the move, even a Sniper from long-range can’t take you out before you have time to react.

Thanks to a “snake” indicator, the shooter will know when they hit someone with the Serpentine Perk equipped.

Underground Transit System in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

Warzone Classified Arms Reloaded will introduce a new way to travel across Caldera. Players will soon be able to travel around the island via an underground mine cart. The method of transportation only takes a few seconds before you arrive at your next destination.

In other words, this new instant way to travel across Caldera can change the way you rotate and plan your victory. There will be 14 access points that players can discover across the map so make sure to get acquainted with the locations.

“Those in the know can use light and audio clues to figure out if an enemy is on the other side, or if the circle collapse will soon engulf the destination. As with most situations, when there is a green light, it means it’s safe. Anything else can mean potential danger, and if the indicator is off with gas going through the vents, then that means you cannot travel to that destination.”

New Warzone items

Gulag Entry Token

The Gulag Entry Token will give players another shot at entering the Gulag.

“If you perish while holding a Gulag Entry Token, you will be sent back to the Gulag rather than needing to be bought back or be eliminated from the game.”

Redeploy Extraction Token

The Redeploy Extraction Token is an item “that grants an automatic redeploy without any need to visit the Gulag or to be bought back at a Buy Station.”

According to the devs, the Redeploy Extraction Token is quite a rare find, so don’t expect to find one every match.

Speed Boost

This item will automatically provide players with a temporary movement buff when picked up. Players who love to finesse enemies with movement should keep an eye out for the Speed Boost.

Radar Jammer

“The Radar Jammer is a Field Upgrade that scrambles the Tac Map of enemy players and prevents Killstreaks for anyone within a short radius.”

It’ll be up to players to find creative uses for this powerful Field Upgrade that could prove vital during the late game.

High Value Loot Zones

It seems Operation Monarch was used to test High Value Loot Zones across Caldera, as the feature will now appear in standard Battle Royale games. These high-risk, high-reward locations are sure to get the blood pumping.

You can check where these areas are located by opening your Tac Map or looking at your minimap. This is one way that the devs wish to give players more opportunities to access rare items and cash that will lead to a quick loadout.

Champion of Caldera LTM

Champion of Caldera will act as an LTM for Solo players. The Champion of Caldera LTM will be available on May 25 and will feature 150 player lobbies.

As the name would suggest, the goal is quite simple: claim the Champion of Caldera title as your own. Luckily, players will start the match with their Custom Loadout, a Gas Mask, and a single Redeploy Extraction Token.

If you’re looking for a high-octane and fast-paced Solo playlist then you’ll want to give Champion of Caldera a try.

“Kills in this game mode immediately refill player health, equipment, and ammo, incentivizing would-be Champions to play aggressively and eliminate the competition directly to have the best chance at victory.”

Rebirth Island Occupation Scan In-Game Event

It seems that Rebirth Island players will need to remain on high alert throughout the coming weeks with a new mechanic being introduced that can reveal your position to enemies.

“At some point during standard Rebirth Resurgence matches, Operators may be alerted of an Occupation Scan. At this point, they will need to go prone or else their position will be revealed to every other player on the Tac Map and minimap.”

The Season 3 Reloaded blog also teased a mysterious Rebirth Island event that could arrive sometime throughout Season 3, or perhaps we’ll have to wait until Season 4 for this exciting content.

Vanguard June 30 update patch notes: Ranked Play restrictions, Zombies bug fixes, more

Vanguard’s June 30 update patch notes brought changes to Ranked Play restrictions as well as fixes for several Zombies bugs in Season 4.

Published

on

Call of Duty: Vanguard devs Sledgehammer Games released an update on June 30 that added two weapons to the Ranked Play restricted list and delivered bug fixes for several issues plaguing the Zombies mode.

Vanguard Season 4 introduced two new weapons to the game in the UGM-8 and Marco 5. Players have been enjoying the unique dual wield capabilities of the Marco 5, but it seems the SMG is now a restricted weapon in Vanguard’s Ranked Play following the June 30 update.

The devs also took time to address several bugs and glitches that were hindering the Zombies experience. When playing the new Shi No Numa map, players should notice smoother gameplay following the update.

Vanguard Ranked Play restrictions adjusted

Season 4’s Marco 5 SMG and the Push Dagger Melee weapon have been added to the restricted list of Vanguard’s Ranked Play. Players were enjoying the new Marco 5 SMG in multiplayer and Ranked Play, but it seems they may have to return to the MP40.

This isn’t the first time a strong weapon was added to the Ranked Play restricted list as the Volk also received a ban in Season 3. Also, the top 250 Ranked Play leaderboard is now live in Vanguard.

You can check out the rest of the Vanguard June 30 update patch notes below.

How to get the “new Roze” Night Terror Florence skin in Warzone & Vanguard

Here’s how to get the Night Terror Florence skin in Warzone & Vanguard following comparisons to the iconic Roze skin.

Published

on

It’s been some time since an Operator skin has shaken up Warzone but the Night Terror Florence skin, which many are calling the new Roze skin, has the potential to do so. Here’s how to get the Violet Stealth bundle in Warzone and Vanguard.

When the Roze skin was at the height of its power, it tormented Warzone lobbies one match after another. Due to the skin’s all-black outfit, it blended in easily with the surroundings and made it hard for enemies to spot before it received a decisive nerf.

In Season 4, a Warzone and Vanguard bundle highlights a similar skin that has made its way to Call of Duty with the Violet Stealth bundle. The Night Terror Florence skin shares many similarities to the Roze skin, so here’s everything you need to know about it.

How to get Night Terror Florence skin in Warzone & Vanguard

To get your hands on the Night Terror skin, you’ll have to purchase the Violet Stealth bundle. Following the Warzone update that nerfed the NZ-41 on June 30, the Violet Stealth bundle is available to purchase.

Despite the June 30 release, the bundle has yet to appear in the Vanguard and Warzone store in-game. Here’s where PC, Xbox, and PlayStation players can purchase the bundle.

Given the competitive advantage it might bring, you won’t want to miss the Violet Stealth bundle in Warzone and Vanguard Season 4.

Vanguard & Warzone Violet Stealth bundle content

It seems you’ll have to dish out $19.99 / £16.79 for the Vanguard and Warzone bundle and here’s what you’ll receive in exchange:

  • Night Terror Florence skin
  • Violet Violence Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle blueprint
  • Dark Ambient MP40 blueprint
  • Midnight Malice calling card
  • Hooded Hell emblem
  • Neon Artistry sticker
  • Funeral Director watch
  • Inscribed reticle
  • 2,400 CoD Points

Not only is the Night Terror skin expected to be a powerful cosmetic in-game, but the MP40 is a meta weapon in both Warzone and Vanguard, which further sweetens the deal.

Both the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle and MP40 blueprints will come equipped with neon purple tracer rounds that tie into the Violet Stealth aesthetic. The 2,400 CoD Points are a nice touch as a bonus you could use on another bundle.
