The new Warzone Season Three Reloaded update is shaking up the current meta with new ways to move around Caldera, new perks, bundles, operator skins, and more. The biggest change in the new update is the underground transit system that offers a new way to move around the map for players. Here’s a quick look at all the major changes in the new update.
New Champions of Caldera Game Mode
Warzone is getting a new game mode called Champions of Caldera. This mode will feature 150 maximum Players and a single, continuously closing circle in a Battle Royale-style fight for survival.
All Operators will drop in with their Custom Loadout, a Gas Mask, and a single Redeploy Extraction Token. The item pool is slightly altered to emphasize equipment not normally found in Loadouts and rare Weapons. Collect Cash to visit an upgraded Buy Station, which features the Advanced UAV and even the Specialist Bonus for a hefty fee. Kills in this game mode immediately refill player Health, Equipment, and Ammunition, incentivizing would-be champions to play aggressively and eliminate the competition directly to have the best chance at victory.
New Underground Transit System
The new update is adding a fast travel system with 14 access points, indicated on the Tac Map and minimap by a silver “vault door” symbol. A lighting system will provide intel and help navigate Player decisions which are very useful. Warzone has had several Fast Travel systems over its lifetime, everything from Subways to Red Doors. With this new Underground Transit System on Caldera, Raven Software is leveraging all the learnings from the previous experiences to create what it believes to be the ultimate method for moving around Caldera quickly.
Death Tax Reduces for the Gulag
The death tax has been adjusted from 80:20 to 50:50. The death tax felt overly punishing, as well as making it tougher for Players to track how much cash they’d still have when returning from the Gulag. Raven Software is going to trial this new 50:50 split and carefully monitor the impact it has on the global cash economy.
The new update is very exciting and we can’t wait to see what game modes are added to the weekly rotation in the next few weeks.
