Raven Software has also revealed that it will “reflect on and immortalise a few fond stories that have had the community talking” over the years, with new Calling Cards. These Calling Cards include one for the “king” Grau 5.56, a memorial to the “cracked” DMR 1’s reign of terror, and more.

Speaking of the battle royale’s weapons, Raven Software has teased that ground loot and gulag loadouts have been “refreshed” with weapons from Warzones’s past.

“Leaning into the history of Warzone, you’ll find some of the greatest hits from Modern Warfare, Black Ops and Vanguard in Ground Loot,” shared the developer. “We have significantly increased the variance on offer from what was previously on offer in order to make the early game feel more dynamic each drop.

That includes showing more “recommended” weapons in Gunsmith based on what’s performing well in the beta, yellow circles to highlight Golden Keycard Bunkers on the map, and clearer instructions on how to equip a gas mask.


Finally, the update also numerical adjustments to lots of Warzone‘s weapons and fixes a slew of bugs – you can read the full patch notes here.
