Some speculated that this was a teaser of full weather systems coming to Warzone Season 2. This user said as much, adding that the addition would “feel alot more immersive”.
if season 2 brings a weather cycle, that shit would be dope! Imagine having the option to put on nvg goggles during night time, and then you can take them off when it becomes morning. Then rain comes and so on. Would feel alot more immersive imo. But then again, it's cod… :/

Some also thought the lightning was a sign that zombies would come to Warzone, although many were not keen. This reply implored the team to “keep that separate. Please.”

Recently, Raven Software – the developers behind Call of Duty: Warzone – have stepped up their anti-cheat measures. The move saw them banning over 60,000 cheaters in under a week, stating there were “more to come”.
A Reddit user also discovered a way to use a hidden weapon whilst playing Warzone using weapon drops in a Plunder match. The gun is a fully-automatic pistol based on the Makarov, with a 27 round magazine that can be upgraded with an 80 round drum magazine. The Sykov is also eligible for dual-wielding.
