Call of Duty have finally given us a full view of Caldera, the new map arriving with Warzone Pacific and Vanguard Season 1. Through this, we can see every POI, including Sub Pens, Resort, and Village.

Warzone’s most anticipated update is nearly here, bringing across all of Vanguard’s weapons and Operators to a brand-new Pacific-themed map. We’ve already had Caldera teased through a basic map and a small look at some of the POIs through the Secrets of the Pacific event.

Now, Activision have given us both a trailer and full birds-eye view of Caldera, giving us a good look at Warzone’s new battle royale arena and revealing its POIs.

Call of Duty also released a short trailer for the new Caldera map. This shows off the landscape and POIs such as the Ruins, Fields, and Capital.

Caldera arrives for all players on December 9, but those who own Call of Duty: Vanguard can play it a day early on December 8. It will include some unique game modes such as Vanguard Royale where only Vanguard’s WW2 weapons will be available, and players can fly planes.

We’re still a little over a week out from Caldera’s arrival, so we expect to continue to learn more about the map and its POIs in the run-up to launch, so stay tuned to Charlie INTEL.

Vanguard Zombies players furious The Archon is just “green Terra Maledicta”

Fans of Vanguard’s Zombies mode are furious with Season 5’s content, claiming The Archon to be a green-tinted remaster of Terra Maledicta.

The Archon Zombies Season 5 Menendez EX1

Fans were eager to get a look at a new round-based Zombies map in Vanguard Season 5, but excitement turned to disappointment as a remaster of Terra Maledicta was revealed instead.

While Vanguard Zombies players will be getting a round-based experience in Season 5, The Archon isn’t exactly a new map. Zombies fans were under the impression that Season 5’s The Archon would deliver another brand-new Zombies map following Vanguard’s Shi No Numa.

Instead, the upcoming content is better defined as a new Zombies experience, since players will receive a round-based version of Season 2’s Terra Maledicta instead. It seems the announcement has caused unrest among Zombies fans, with several voicing their disbelief.

Vanguard Zombies Season 5 The Archon

Terra Maledicta was a new Zombies map that arrived with Season 2 of Vanguard. When it launched, players slammed it as a boring Zombies map that failed to change their initial poor opinion of Vanguard Zombies.

Given the poor reception, the devs claim that they were dedicated to using player feedback to improve the Terra Maledicta experience in Season 5.

“Earlier this year, the Vanguard Zombies team received a mountain of constructive feedback around the launch of Terra Maledicta. As we digested everything we heard from the community, one request kept coming up over and over: the map’s Egyptian and Dark Aether settings would make for a killer round-based experience. We agreed!”

This explains their decision to remaster or update Terra Maledicta by giving it a round-based makeover in Season 5. Unfortunately, the initial reaction from Vanguard players has been just as poor as that of the original Terra Maledicta.

It seems players were under the impression they’d be getting a new round-based map, which increased the disappointment they felt when a “green Terra Maledicta remaster” was revealed instead.

Zombies fans are obsessing over the green-tinted overhaul that Terra Maledicta seems to have received. Comments from the above post found on the CODZombies subreddit reveal that players believe this Season 5 content to be lazy: “This is next level lazy if they actually have used terra maledicta.”

Another player questioned if there would be any new sections around the map: “The fun part about it is the fact that on the official treyarch blog there’s NOTHING that says that there will be new areas, this is literally a s*** show.”

It’s certainly too early to pass final judgment on Season 5’s Zombies content, but it’s safe to say that The Archon will have to be a phenomenal experience to change players’ strong opinions.

How to unlock RA 225 SMG in Warzone & Vanguard Season 5

Warzone and Vanguard’s new Season 5 SMG is set to deliver incredible mobility and a fast fire rate, so here’s how to unlock the RA 225.

Published

RA 255 SMG Warzone Vanguard Season 5

The RA 225 SMG is making its way to Vanguard and Warzone during Season 5, and the weapon’s speed in tight spaces should be a valuable addition to both games.

With Season 5 set to act as the final chapter of Vanguard and Warzone before players move on to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, the RA 225 will be one of the last weapons to enter the fold.

We’ve seen a ton of post-launch Vanguard SMGs join the pool of weapons over the seasons, and it’s only right that players receive one final SMG before saying goodbye.

The new SMG will rely on a high fire rate and excellent mobility to dominate Season 5 of Warzone and Vanguard, so here’s how to unlock the RA 225.

How to unlock the RA 225 SMG in Warzone & Vanguard

Warzone and Vanguard’s RA 225 SMG will arrive at the start of Season 5 on August 24, and it will be available through the Battle Pass. At the moment, we don’t know the exact tier that the weapon will become available, but it should be either 15 or 31 according to previous seasons.

The RA 225 SMG will be one of two weapons arriving via the Season 5 Battle Pass, with the EX1 being the other. These two weapons should be free unlocks that occupy tiers 15 and 31 of the Battle Pass.

Menendez and Al-Asad in Warzone Season 5

The Call of Duty blog for the Season 5 roadmap explains that “this SMG has a high fire rate and a very mobile compact frame.” The RA 225 is a lightweight SMG, which means it should provide excellent mobility for those looking to finesse opponents in Warzone Season 5.

Although it does come with quick handling, its fast fire rate means that while it will be devastating in close-range gunfights, you will have to manage some upward recoil kick that the RA 225 displays.

Its base form doesn’t boast the highest firepower possible, but with the right attachments, you should be able to increase its damage and recoil control to your liking.
