Plus, there is a huge weapon tuning update, affecting loads of guns in Zombies. This is great news, especially considering there are now weapon unlock challenges in Zombies too.

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded Update

The Season 3 Reloaded update is bringing some huge changes to Warzone too. Let’s hope this also includes a fix to the biggest problem in Warzone, once we find out the patch notes.

Limited-Time Power Grab Game Mode

Firstly, a brand new mode called Power Grab lets players become an action hero! It’s still the last man standing, but players can collect dog tags by killing enemies and completing contracts.

These dog tags will let you buy back your teammates, and let you earn powerful rewards including an Advanced Gas Mask or a Specialist bonus.

This may not be a welcome inclusion as many players complained about how Foresight was way too overpowered. Specialist gives you every perk in the game!

Warzone Combat Bow Killstreak

Warzone players will now be able to find the combat bow killstreak in Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island. You’ll want to avoid these explosive arrows at all cost!

Let’s hope it’s better than the terrible RC-XD that annoyed Warzone players.

Meanwhile, Warzone cheaters are worse than ever in Season 3. This is despite Raven Software banning over 500,000 hackers so far.

Finally, Call of Duty is tripling the size of its development team. Hopefully, this means we will see more cool events like the ’80s Action Heroes in the future.
