After complaints from the community, the developers have decided to fully remove the bloom mechanic in Warzone Pacific Season 1.
Warzone Pacific Season 1 has introduced players to a lot of new content, thanks to the Vanguard integration. As well as new weapons, with the Season 1 Battle Pass Assault Rifle impressing the likes of FaZe Swagg. Although, the integration also brought over a controversial mechanic.
This mechanic is known as bloom, and many will be very happy to know that it has now been completely scrapped from Warzone Pacific.
For those that don’t know, Vanguard’s multiplayer possesses a mechanic called bloom with all its weapons. This mechanic basically gives the weapon’s bullets some RNG when it comes to direction.
This essentially means that no matter where you place your reticle, your bullet may not actually hit directly on that exact point every time. Upon the introduction of Vanguard, the mechanic was also brought across into Warzone via the new weapons.
Bloom removed in Warzone
In general, the Call of Duty community is against this mechanic, with many considering it to be very controversial. It hasn’t been seen before in Warzone, so naturally many were confused as to why they decided to introduce it.
Although the mechanic was only active on the Vanguard weapons, many weren’t happy about its arrival. Luckily for these players, the December 15 update seems to have completely removed it.
As you can see, prior to the update the AS44’s ADS spread was all over the place, with bullets going in all sorts of directions. After the recent update, this has now been removed, and players are definitely happy about it. Some are even asking for it to be removed from Vanguard’s Multiplayer in the comments of CharlieINTEL’s Twitter post:
“Now remove it from vanguard and never add it to call of duty ever again.”
We’ll have to wait and see exactly how Sledgehammer Games handle the consistent backlash about bloom in future Vanguard updates, but Raven Software seemed to be fairly quick about the change following the community outrage.

Warzone Titanium Trials Endurance mode explained: Rules & rewards
Here’s everything you need to know about Warzone’s Titanium Trials Endurance mode, including all of the rules and rewards.
Warzone Season 4 Reloaded features the new Titanium Trials Endurance mode and here’s everything that you need to know about it, including its rules and rewards.
Warzone Season 4 Reloaded is going out with a Terminator-themed bang after the Titanium Trials mode went live on August 11. This hardcore mode increases the value of armor plates and rewards the best players with free items such as the Ultra Weapon camos.
With the rise of the machines taking place in Warzone, players will need to counter this new threat in the brand-new Titanium Trials Endurance mode, and we’ll go over everything that you need to know about it.
- Warzone Titanium Trials rules
- Warzone Titanium Trials rewards
Warzone Titanium Trials Endurance rules
Warzone’s Titanium Trials increases the maximum base armor threshold on Caldera to 300 hit points to simulate a Terminator model’s toughness. Health regeneration takes longer to restore, making this a high-skill and high TTK game mode.
You’ll start the game with a Self-Revive Kit and will be able to pick up the Tempered Perk as ground loot more frequently to repair armor. The mode’s custom-built loot table includes rare Redacted Weapons that pack a more significant punch than regular loadout guns.
Here’s a breakdown of the rules:
Player health & armor
Warzone Season 4 Reloaded’s Titanium Trials boosts player health up to 400, with 300 of that made up from armor plates. This means that Operators have only 100 HP, making for a quick death once your armor’s gone.
To make things more difficult, health regeneration has been slowed down. But, the Tempered Perk can be found more often to allow you to plate up faster.
Player count & map
Titanium Trials mode takes place on Warzone’s Caldera, with a maximum player count of 152. The mode will be played in Quads so make sure to bring some friends if you hope to get 20 wins and unlock the Skynet camo.
Loadout costs & redacted weapons
The cost of loadouts will be much higher at the beginning of a Warzone Titanium Trials match and will gradually decrease with each circle collapse.
However, if you haven’t found enough cash to buy your loadout and get the best weapons, then you can find one of the Redacted Weapons which has even more attachments.
Warzone Titanium Trials Endurance rewards

Titanium Trials went live on August 11 as part of the Season 4 Reloaded update, bringing Terminator-themed gameplay to Caldera. This mode is unique in that it rewards players for their skill rather than tedious challenges.

Tips & tricks to win Titanium Trials in Warzone
Get loadout as early as possible
Titanium Trials is unique in that there are no free loadout drops, so you’ll need to rack up as much cash as possible in the early game and buy your loadout as soon as possible. The ground loot weapons pale in comparison to the weapons listed above, so you’ll be giving yourself a huge advantage by buying the loadout early.
We recommend landing somewhere far away from the plane’s line where you’ll be uncontested and can get a loadout before playing out the rest of the match.
But, the loadout drop price will keep falling as the match progresses so don’t worry if you can’t grab one straight away.
Watch for Self-Revives
Self-Revive Kits are everywhere in Warzone’s Titanium Trials, as every player will spawn with one — even after coming back from the Gulag.
When fighting, just keep in mind that the player you have knocked most likely has a Self-Revive, so don’t count them out of the fight. Finish them off with your gun or a Throwing Knife if possible, but if you can’t, keep an eye on where you knocked them in case they re-peek the angle.
Keep plating up during fights
With Titanium Trials being a Terminator-themed mode, armor plates count for much more of your total health. Your base health is only 100 HP and armor makes up a further 300 HP. With how important armor is, just putting on a single plate during a fight will offer a huge advantage.
If you’re fighting at range, take any second you can to re-fill your armor plates. This is especially useful if you find the Tempered Perk on the ground, as each plate gives 150 HP. Players won’t expect your health to be so full, and you may catch them out in the open as they push up.
Play with friends
Warzone’s Titanium Trials is Quads only, and playing with randoms is always a gamble. If possible, playing with friends will significantly raise your chances of winning.
Random players will often leave immediately after dying, or just want to do their own thing. Playing as a close-knit team is a sure-fire way of securing the victories needed to unlock all of the Ultra Camos.
