Warzone Pacific Dec 10 update patch notes: Vanguard weapon updates, bloom, bug fixes

Warzone developers have released a major weapon balancing update, including changes to Vanguard weapons and attachments.



Warzone Pacific update

Raven Software have released a new update for Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific on December 10 that includes weapon balancing updates for Vanguard weapons, bug fixes, and attachment adjustments.

The new weapon balancing update for Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific leveled the playing field by balancing Vanguard weapons. More importantly, adjustments to weapon attachments will drastically change the optimal selection for most weapons.

This new weapon balancing update is currently live in Warzone. As previously mentioned players can use Modern Warfare & Cold War content in standard Battle Royale modes. While Vanguard Royale uses Vanguard content exclusively.

The update also includes a variety of bug fixes for Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific.

Warzone December 10 Update Patch Notes

Warzone Pacific update


  • Reduced the volume of aerial gameplay elements such as Fighter Planes, Bombing Runs, and Airstrike Killstreaks.


  • Fighter Planes are no longer able to auto-target parachuting Players.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where Vanguard Operators Levels would begin at 0 instead of 1.
  • Fixed an issue causing Players to be kicked for inactivity while using the static Anti-Aircraft Gun.
  • Fixed an issue causing Players bought back by teammates to return without access to Weapons or their fists.



  • The M1928 (VG), also known as Submachine Gun Alpha (VG), has been changed to M1912 (VG)

Weapon Adjustments

With this update, we have drastically reduced the amount of ‘Bloom’ on all base Vanguard Weapons. In the future, we will be removing Bloom from Vanguard Weapons entirely. This process will take time, as we will need to determine adequate downsides to counterbalance the removal of Bloom, which will vary based on each individual Weapon and the type of Attachment they are attributed to.

In addition, we are in the process of assessing Weapon ADS Speeds across Warzone. Stay tuned for more information.

Warzone 2 leak claims long-awaited console FOV slider is coming to sequel

According to a top Warzone player’s leak, the long-awaited FOV slider could be available to Warzone 2 console players upon release.



Modern Warfare 2 campaign mission

A top Warzone player has claimed that Warzone 2 will come equipped with the highly requested FOV slider on console.

Activision announced that Warzone Season 5 will be the final season and major content release of the classic CoD battle royale. Despite the exciting new features coming in Season 5, players can’t help but look forward to Warzone 2.

In August, a leak revealed a possible release date for the battle royale sequel. This leaked date of November 16 has players extremely excited to discover the next chapter of Warzone. In addition, it seems like players could finally be getting their most desired feature that was missing from the original.

Console players have been asking for a Warzone FOV slider since the Verdansk days. Of course, the feature never made its way to Warzone, and with Season 5 being its finale, this will remain the case.

The good news is, that a top Warzone player by the name of Metaphor is now claiming that console players’ biggest wish will be fulfilled as an FOV slider is set to make its way to Warzone 2.

Interestingly enough Metaphor also claims that an FOV slider will be available to those on last-generation consoles as well. According to their source, the FOV slider will also feature in Modern Warfare 2 and DMZ.

While players weren’t shocked to see the feature’s rumored inclusion for multiplayer, the leak has given players hope that Warzone 2 could be a smoother experience than Warzone: “multiplayer i’d expect as Vanguard had it, i hope this means Warzone 2 is optimised better.”

Of course, this raises another question concerning the optimization of Warzone. Some questioned “how the hell a fat PS4 or a VCR xbox one from almost 10 years ago is going to run WZ2 on 120 FOV with consistent frames?,” to which Metaphor replied, “it won’t.”

This indicates that Metaphor believes either last generation consoles will not have a maximum FOV of 120, or that they’ll have to sacrifice frame rates to access wider FOVs. Being able to access 120 FOV with consistent frames seems too good to be true when it comes to last-generation hardware.

Keep in mind that these are just leaks, so we’ll have to wait and see what’s in store for Warzone 2 console players. However, if these early claims turn out to be true, players could be pleased to finally receive the top item on their wishlist.

How to use Doomsday Station in Warzone & unlock unique cosmetic

The Doomsday Station is making its way to Caldera with the Warzone Season 5 update, and here’s how the device works.



Doomsday Station Warzone Season 5

Warzone Season 5’s new Doomsday Station device is set to shake up Caldera, so here’s how to use it to earn a unique cosmetic and in-game rewards.

Warzone Season 5 is sending off the battle royale with a bang thanks to the new weapons up for grabs, familiar villains returning, and new modes to discover. The new content doesn’t stop there as Raven Software are also introducing several new items for players to utilize.

One of these new items is the Doomsday Station, and it has the potential to shake up Warzone gameplay. Those who harness the power of the Doomsday Station could set themselves up for an easy battle royale victory, so let’s find out how it works.

Warzone Doomsday Station explained

Players who activate a Doomsday Station during the primary BR game mode will trigger a series of events on Caldera. After a Doomsday Station has been activated, enemy AI including soldiers and helicopters will arrive at your location for a direct assault.

It’ll be up to you and your teammates to remain close to the Doomsday Station and defend yourself against the oncoming attackers. If done successfully, players will earn a unique cosmetic reward as well as powerful in-game items.

Activating the Doomsday Station is not enough on its own and only those who survive the onslaught will receive the rewards. The cosmetic up for grabs is a Watch for your Operator, and while we don’t know which in-game items will act as rewards, they’re expected to change the flow of the game and set you up for a victory.

You’ll want to keep in mind that it will cost a total of $10,000 to activate the Doomsday Station, so saving up cash is a necessary step of the process. In addition, only one Doomsday Station will appear across Caldera per match. This practically guarantees that it will be a heavily contested location.

Speaking of location, the Doomsday Station will not appear in the same spot every match. Instead, it has multiple spawn locations, so you’ll have to keep an eye out and be ready for anything.

Warzone Season 5 Gulag inspired by fan-favorite Showers map

A brand-new Gulag is coming to Warzone in the Season 5 update, which is seemingly familiar to the classic Showers map.



showers gulag warzone

The Warzone Season 5 update will refresh the Gulag, and for the final season, it seems players will be getting a dose of nostalgia.

Warzone is coming to the end of its lifespan, with the Season 5 update looking to bring players one last hoorah before Warzone 2.

As well as a bunch of new weapons like the EX1 and Valois Revolver, Warzone players will also be getting a new Field Upgrade and Personal Supply Box Killstreak. While players try out this new content in-game, they will also notice a change in the Gulag.

The Gulag is an important space for players, as they will often find themselves trying to get back to the map and earn a victory. The layout for the Gulag has changed a lot over the seasons, but it seems Season 5 will be taking the Gulag back to its roots.

The Caldera Gulag for Warzone Season 5 will be a reimagined layout of the original Showers map. The Call of Duty blog states that players will be fighting it out in a “face-off pit inspired by an old favorite.”

warzone season 5 Gulag

Although it is not exactly confirmed, the image gives it away, as it is clearly one of the spawns of the classic Showers Gulag, but with a “new volcanic” theme.

Although it is reimagined, this will still be a nostalgic experience for players, as it is the original layout for Warzone’s second chance saloon. This may also spark some nostalgia for Verdansk, as players have been extremely eager to see the original Warzone Battle Royale map return.

There may be differences in the layout, as it has been reimagined, but as more details are revealed we will be sure to update you so stay tuned to Charlie Intel.
