Warzone leak claims new ‘Red Door’ fast travel system coming to Verdansk ’84

A new fast travel system has reportedly been leaked for Warzone, in which players traverse Verdansk ’84 through ‘Red Doors.’

A Call of Duty: Warzone survey has reportedly revealed that a new fast travel system is coming to Verdansk ’84, where players travel through ‘Red Doors’ throughout the map in Season 3.

We’re now well into Warzone Season 3, and players are becoming used to the new Verdansk ’84 map. Luckily, game-breaking bugs have been fixed, with players no longer able to glitch under the map and the “Hunt for Adler” event progress tracking.

Following this major overhaul to Warzone’s map, Activision reportedly sent out a survey on April 28 asking players which parts of Verdansk ’84 they most enjoy. Choices included: lighting changes, updated POIs, and also mentioned a new fast travel system that isn’t in the game yet.

The top option in this section listed “The Red Doors (new fast travel system),” which currently isn’t in the game, but could arrive later.

Warzone players were first treated to a fast travel system in Modern Warfare Season 6 with the Subway system. The doors to the Subway stations opened up and players could use the underground train to fast travel around the map.

With Warzone players traveling back in time to the 1980s, this Subway system hasn’t been built yet, so there is no fast travel system as of the start of Season 3, but it seems the Red Doors will be taking its place.

Red Doors have been a theme throughout Black Ops Cold War, with the game’s internal alpha codenamed ‘The Red Door,’ it being a recurring theme of the campaign, and one appearing in the Verdansk ’84 cutscene.

The Red Doors appear to be connected to Cold War’s campaign, so they would further the integrate Cold War and Warzone’s story, which has now fully overlapped.

There’s no word on how this fast travel system will work, but we can hazard a guess they’ll be connected in a similar way to the Subway stops.

It’s possible this system was designed for the launch of Season 3 and Verdansk ’84 but was scrapped ahead of launch – so it’s worth taking this news with a pinch of salt.

However, with Black Ops Cold War and Warzone set to release Season 3 Reloaded as the mid-season update, in which new weapons, Operators, and multiplayer maps arrive, it’s possible the Red Door fast travel system will arrive then. Or, it could arrive in a later season in a similar vein to the Subway stations opening up.

Warzone players divided over frustrating skydiving gunfights

The Warzone community is split over how they feel about skydiving gun battles, with some claiming they’re unrealistic.

Skydiving into the map on Warzone can be quite the task, especially when enemies are gunning you down mid-air, leading to mixed opinions about the mechanic.

Upon release of the Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update, the community was happy to see some much-need changes to the meta, bringing Modern Warfare and Cold War weapons back in line.

Unfortunately, many haven’t been too fond of the recent efforts to reverse this in the August 3 update, which saw the Kilo and VLK Rogue nerfed.

Along with this, players have also been experiencing some serious frame drops associated with the ping system, leading to some disappointed players. Now, some in the community are having an issue with a mechanic that has been in the game since the start.

Warzone character parachuting

The ability to gun down your enemies while dropping into the map on Warzone has been a feature since the very beginning.

While it has frustrated players over the years, as starting a game and instantly being downed isn’t the greatest feeling, it has never been a serious issue in the community.

However, after GodOfEggs69 highlighted the feature on the Warzone subreddit and expressed their opinion, it created a divide. The user feels that players “should not be able to ever so accurately hit multiple shots at another target that is falling from 1000 feet.”

Ultimately, they feel it is unrealistic that an enemy can beam them while skydiving, and with almost 400 upvotes at the time of writing this article, it seems many agree. A comment under the post even said: “I still don’t understand why we can shoot our guns when falling at 200mph, but not when we have our parachute pulled.”

Others in the comments of the post feel differently, with opinions such as “It’s a video game lol,” and that the user should “try getting better instead of complaining about everything.”

Some also feel it is odd that this is being complained about now, with another user saying “did you just install the game? lmao where are these complaints coming from, this s*** has been in the game since day 1.”

Perhaps the new iteration of Warzone will address all these concerns and issues, as even Zlaner has requested that the devs remove a feature from the game for Warzone 2.

When is Plunder coming back to Warzone?

With Warzone having multiple modes to play, players are left wondering when the fan-favorite Plunder mode will return.

Warzone Pacific features a healthy rotation of different game modes to provide variety, but when is the popular Plunder game mode set to return to the playlist?

Warzone features plenty of fun game modes for you to try out, including the fan-favorite Plunder mode that allows you to respawn and easily level up weapons before getting back in the fight.

Since the developers want to keep things fresh for players, new game modes frequently rotate in and out of the playlist, and Plunder can’t be a constant presence in the game. We’ll go over when the mode will be back in the game.

When is Plunder coming back to Warzone?

Raven Software released the playlist update schedule on the official Warzone Trello board, confirming that Plunder Quads will be coming back to Warzone on August 11 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST.

The popular game mode will remain available until August 18 and then Golden Plunder will take its place. This is similar to regular Plunder but with a higher player count and increased cash drops.

After that, it remains to be seen when the developers will add Plunder back to the playlist again. So, be sure to try out Plunder Quads in Season 4 Reloaded before its removed from the playlist.

While fans of Plunder might be disappointed to see it get removed from Warzone Pacific again, implementing playlist updates ensures that there is a greater variety of game modes for you to hop into.

We’ll be sure to update this article as soon as a new date for Plunder’s return is officially confirmed after its removal, so be sure to check back with us if you’re eager to jump back into the beloved game mode.

Warzone players beg for Modern Warfare LTM ahead of MW2 release

Modern Warfare weapons are some of the most well-liked in Warzone, and an exclusive MW LTM is exactly what players are craving.

Warzone players revealed that a Modern Warfare exclusive LTM is at the top of their wish list leading up to Modern Warfare 2’s October 28 release.

Since the start of Season 4 Reloaded, Warzone players have been vocal about wanting to return to Verdansk one last time before the focus shifts to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. While this massive map overhaul is unlikely to occur in Warzone Season 5, players seem willing to compromise.

One aspect of early Verdansk that players enjoyed the most was the reliance on Modern Warfare weapons. Compared to Cold War and Vanguard weapons, MW weapons bring an appealing sense of nostalgia to the table.

Prior to the release of Modern Warfare 2, players want to see MW weapons return to the spotlight with a new Warzone LTM.

When Vanguard weapons made their way to Warzone, the devs delivered a special Vanguard Royale LTM that excluded weapons from Modern Warfare and Cold War. In this LTM, players could only rely on Vanguard weapons and Equipment.

Now, players are asking for a version of the same LTM but with a Modern Warfare twist. It’s no surprise that players favor the Modern Warfare era of Warzone and this LTM would give them a chance to relive some fond memories.

The hypothetical Warzone Pacific LTM would give players a chance to get excited about Modern Warfare content without having to return to Verdansk.

Players in the comments of a Reddit post agreed that the likelihood of receiving such an LTM was extremely low, but some expanded on the idea of separating each title and its weapons into three playlists: “It’s a shame though, I would love if they did a single-game BR rotation between Vanguard, Cold War, and MW19.”

The majority of players insisted that “If it isn’t promoting their new game, they won’t do it.”

However, one reply suggested that putting the focus back on Modern Warfare weapons with an exclusive LTM would actually help promote Modern Warfare 2, which is slated to release on October 28: “To be fair, doing MW would help hype up MWII.”

It remains to be seen what Raven has planned for Warzone’s swansong in Season 5. Although a Modern Warfare exclusive LTM across Caldera, Rebirth Island, and Fortune’s Keep is unlikely, players will keep their fingers crossed.
