A new promotional video for Warzone Pacific Season 1 has revealed an interesting Molotov strategy that gives the equipment a new use.

Warzone and Vanguard’s first season is almost here, with players continuing to participate in the Secrets of the Pacific event on Verdansk.

The new update will be bringing many changes to Warzone. Although some are concerned about the Loadout Drop changes, many are excited for Warzone Pacific. As well as Gas Mask buffs, it seems the Molotov equipment will be getting a new use.

There’s been a lot of promotion for Warzone Pacific, with the official launch coming on December 8 for those with early access.

Players are excited to get to grips with the brand new map, Caldera, which is sure to have loads for players to discover.

We’ve had information on all the POIs that players will see, but a new promotion video posted by charlieINTEL on Twitter showed a “postcard from Caldera,” which may have hinted at a new use for the Molotov equipment.

Molotovs have always been pretty great. Players will often use them to get enemies out of corners or even finish off downed players. They set the floor ablaze which acts as a trap for some time so that players can block paths as well.

Despite all these utilizations, Caldera may be bringing a brand new use for them. In the postcard, some information is detailed about an unknown person arriving on Caldera. They say that they have “discovered a fun trick with Molotovs: throw ’em into water and they become smoke grenades! Highly recommend”

This can’t be confirmed until the map is out, but it would make sense considering the developers have intentionally decided to include it within a promotional video for the new map.

Further, the fact that the unknown character on Caldera is highly recommending that players try this makes it even more likely.

We’re unsure how strong this strategy will be, but it’s interesting that Caldera will be offering new gameplay mechanics like this. Could there be more hidden features for players to find upon release?

Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 2 has officially been delayed after devs share community update.

It seems the Call of Duty devs have got a lot on their plate at the moment, causing them to delay the release of Warzone Pacific & Vanguard Season 2.

Warzone & Vanguard have had a lot of updates over the past couple of weeks, including the mid-season patch which looked to solve a lot of the game’s performance issues.

Despite improvements and better communication from the devs when it comes to sharing what they’re working on, Season 2 has been officially delayed to give them more time to work on fixes.

Call of Duty announced over on Twitter that Season 2 of Warzone and Vanguard has officially been delayed from the February 1 released date to February 14.

With all the crazy news coming out recently regarding Microsoft’s plans to purchase Activision, which includes Call of Duty, this probably won’t come as much of a shock to the community, especially given all the current performance issues.

While the devs recognize that they have “deployed a number of updates” recently to fix the issues, including a fix for the freezing Buy Station bug, they also recognize “that more needs to be done.”

The main reason for Season 2 of Warzone and Vanguard being delayed is in order for the devs to continue improving the gameplay experience. Many players will likely be happy that the season is being delayed, as another big update to the game might just cause even more issues and further frustration.

How much money does Warzone make?

Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the most popular battle royale games out there, so how much money does it bring in?

Warzone players looking at cash on the ground

Microsoft is set to acquire Call of Duty’s publisher Activision Blizzard for a whopping $70 billion, so how much money does Warzone bring in?

It’s no secret that Warzone is a money-making machine for publisher Activision Blizzard (soon to be Microsoft). Free-to-play battle royale games have remained as popular as ever, and Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the biggest there is.

With a new Battle Pass each season and an in-game store full of cosmetics such as Operator skins and weapon Blueprints, Warzone more than makes up for its free-to-play model.

Microsoft announced that they’re set to buy Activision Blizzard for almost $70 billion which begs the question, just how much money does Call of Duty: Warzone make?

How much money has Warzone made?

There’s no way of knowing how much money Warzone has made overall, but it’s reportedly somewhere in the region of $4 billion across 2020 and 2021.

SuperData, a now-shutdown game market intelligence company, reported that Warzone and Modern Warfare made around $1.93 billion in 2020, and NetBet estimates that Warzone makes around $1.9 billion a year. This puts Warzone’s total earnings across 2020 and 2021 at around $4 billion US Dollars.

Fortnite reportedly makes Epic Games a similar amount, bringing in around $1.8 billion a year, and $4.9 million a day.

NetBet breaks down Warzone’s earnings even further, reporting that Warzone makes Activision $5.2 million a day, which is over $3,600 a minute.

Social media can give the impression that Warzone is “dying” because of its numerous bugs and glitches, but the numbers tell a completely different story. Players are still purchasing a ton of CoD Points and cosmetic bundles, earning Activision around $60 a second.

This doesn’t even bring Vanguard, Cold War, and CoD: Mobile sales, which will likely bring the amount to be staggeringly higher.
