One of the biggest changes to both games in Season 2 came in the form of new weapons: the FARA 83, LC-10, and ZRG 20mm. These guns didn’t make a huge splash in Warzone, but they’ve been used a lot in Cold War’s multiplayer modes.
Zombies is also set to receive new content this season, most likely in the form of a new Outbreak map which could take the zombie fight over to Berlin. It’s important to remember that all of the leaked content for Season 3 is unlikely to launch at the same time. The devs usually like to space out their content drops over the course of a season. Here’s everything we know about Cold War and Warzone Season 3.
CALL OF DUTY COLD WAR SEASON 3 RELEASE DATE
Call of Duty Cold War and Warzone Season 3 will start on April 21 at 8pm BST / 3pm ET / 12pm PT. There’s always the slim chance the season’s release date could be pushed back unexpectedly. The last delay occurred during the Cold War integration which added over 50 weapons to the game.
CALL OF DUTY WARZONE SEASON 3 NEW MAP
The latest leaks have revealed the new map coming to Warzone is actually an ‘80s version of Verdansk. We’ve known for some time now that the developers want to synchronise the timelines between the Cold War campaign, zombies, and Warzone.
New vehicles will be joining the ‘80s version of Verdansk, according to reputable Call of Duty leaker, ZestyCODLeaks. We fully expect these vehicles to be reskinned versions of the vehicles that are already in modern Verdansk.
CALL OF DUTY COLD WAR SEASON 3 ZOMBIES LOCATION
The zombies boxes dotted around Verdansk have finally reached 100%, setting off, finally delivering the zombies experience many people were hoping for. Right now the zombies are confined to the Shipwreck and Prison, but there are now radiation zones to worry about.
CALL OF DUTY WARZONE SEASON 3 NEW MODE
The Season 2 Reloaded update revealed there may be a new mode heading to Warzone, named Payload. This mode typically brings together two teams to push the opposing side back into their base. Given the size of Verdansk, we can expect the team sizes to feature a minimum of 50 players -if not more.
‘Fast Burst’ (assault rifle), Ballistic Knife (melee), and ‘Spray’ (SMG). There isn’t much information to go off with these vague codenames, though we can make some guesses as to which gun could be joining the game.
The developers like to reintroduce weapons that have already been in a Call of Duty game, so we can make some guesses for the assault rifle and SMG. If we try to pick guns from around the Cold War era, the ‘Spray’ could actually be the MAT-49 from the original Black Ops.
The Sykov pistol is a great example of a weapon everyone was certain would be added to the game back in February, only for it to disappear almost instantly.
