The World Series of Warzone will be the biggest competition in the history of the Call of Duty battle royale with $1.2 million dollars to be won over the course of four different events in 2021, and the five captains for the first tournament have been revealed.

Competitive Warzone has skyrocketed in popularity following the official release of Call of Duty: Warzone in 2020. Some of the most talented players in the world have competed on Verdansk to secure large shares of prize money and prove they should be considered one of the best Warzone players globally.

However, the world of competitive Warzone will be taken to new heights in June, with the first $300,000 tournament of the World Series of Warzone taking place.

This first event will consist of trios from North America competing against one another and with each other. These competing teams will be led by five captains who have now officially been revealed.

When is Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded? Terminator crossover, Vargo-S, new modes

Here’s everything we know about the upcoming Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update, including the expected release date and content.

Warzone Season 4 battle pass skin

Warzone Pacific Season 4 is here, bringing new weapons, Fortune’s Keep, and major Caldera updates. But there’s still more to come, so here’s everything confirmed for the Warzone Pacific Season 4 mid-season update, as well as its expected release date.

Every season, Call of Duty introduces another major update halfway through the season called ‘Reloaded.’ This usually brings a new weapon, new game modes, and major quality of life updates. Season 4 is no different, with the devs gearing up to add a new crossover, modes, and more in the mid-season update.

Here’s everything we know about the Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update, including when we expect it to arrive.

Expected Warzone Season 4 Reloaded release date

While Raven Software haven’t revealed when Warzone Season 4 Reloaded will arrive, we expect it to arrive in the week beginning July 25, as this is halfway through Season 4.

This is only the expected date, so we’ll be sure to confirm once Raven Software or Sledgehammer games confirm the official release date.

Terminator crossover in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

T-1000 Terminator in Warzone and Vanguard

After teasing a Terminator crossover in Warzone, the Season 4 Battle Pass announcement confirmed that the T-800 and T-1000 Terminators will arrive as Store Bundles in the mid-Season update.

The T-800 is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s classic Terminator played and the T-1000 is the shapeshifting android from T2 who most often appears as a cop played by Robert Patrick. Not much else is known about these bundles, with the devs confirming we’ll know more about them later in Season 4.

Vargo-S arrives in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

Vargo-S Assault Rifle in Warzone and Vanguard

Warzone’s Season 4 update added the Marco 5 SMG and UGM-8 LMG, but the Vargo-S Assault Rifle is set to arrive later in the season. Similar to the H4 Blixen and Armaguerra 43 arriving in mid-season updates, we expect the Vargo-S to arrive in the Season 4 Reloaded update.

The Vargo-S is set to be an early prototype of Cold War’s Vargo 52, and the devs have said it offers a “high-fire rate, steady aim through sustained fire, and a quick reload.”

New game modes in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

Armored SUV in Warzone Titanium Trials

Alongside the Terminator skins and a new Assault Rifle, Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded will also bring the Titanium Trials: Endurance and the Rebirth of the Dead mode.

Titanium Trials is set to be “an updated version of the highly-competitive Iron Trials,” and Rebirth of the Dead should bring Zombies to Rebirth Island. We should know much more about the new modes in the run-up to Season 4 Reloaded.

NICKMERCS loves the new Fortune’s Keep Warzone map and explains why

NICKMERCS has shared his opinion on the brand-new Warzone Season 4 map, Fortune’s Keep, stating that he loves it, as well as explaining why.

Published

While NICKMERCS has been off Warzone for some time now, the popular streamer returned to try out the new map Fortune’s Keep, which he said he loves.

Warzone Season 4 introduced a brand-new map to entice players to hop on and explore. While some players’ initial thoughts have been slightly negative, perhaps because they’re missing Rebirth Island, NICKMERCS has expressed a positive opinion regarding the map.

In a recent stream, NICKMERCS explained why he likes the new map, and what kind of player would like Fortune’s Keep.

fortune's keep warzone

NICKMERCS left Warzone for Apex Legends, becoming addicted to the ranked mode grind that Respawn’s battle royale has to offer.

Despite continuing to enjoy Apex over Warzone, NICKMERCS returned to Call of Duty’s battle royale for the Season 4 update, intrigued by the new map Fortune’s Keep.

NICKMERCS has been pretty open about his feelings towards Warzone and Caldera, sharing similar opinions to Dr Disrespect. Having said that, NICKMERCS seems to be enjoying Fortune’s Keep, as while playing it on June 22 he said “I really like the map, yeah a lot.”

NICKMERCS went on to say, “I love the map…what can’t you like? It’s kind of more dynamic than the old one…there’s a cave, there’s a lot more towns and stuff.”

The popular streamer is clearly enjoying the map design for Fortune’s Keep, especially the variation in the POIs and elevation throughout the map.

NICKMERCS even feels that the map is perfectly suited to those who like to play fast: “If you’re like a speed runner, like if you play super quick man, oh my god…parkour on this thing man.”


Perhaps this will draw NICKMERCS back in, or maybe the ranked mode on Apex Legends is still a priority for the streamer. Either way, like other CoD fans, NICKMERCS will likely be looking forward to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
