Everything You Need to Know About Call of Duty Warzone’s Season Four Reloaded Update

season four reloaded

It’s time for another season of Warzone, and we’ve got a massive update for Season Four Reloaded. We’ve got tons of new events, some new maps, a new game mode, a whole bunch of bug fixes, and loads of gameplay changes that switch up the game. These seasonal updates tend to be pretty hit or miss, as some changes land well with some players, but others not so much. Luckily, if you’re not a fan of the way things are going, you only have to wait it out for a couple of months before something gets changed. That’s the nature of live games, I suppose – you win some, you lose some. So, what changes did Raven Software make for Season Four Reloaded in Call of Duty Warzone?

Events

  • Blueprint Blitz
    • Blueprint Blitz is a new way that will allow players to earn Weapon Blueprints from previous seasons if you missed out or didn’t play Warzone when they were originally available.
    • Only applies to the core BR and Plunder modes

Modes

  • Payload
    • Two teams of 20 players drop in to escort two caravans of vehicles through a series of checkpoints or sabotage the mission.
    • (Essentially Call of Duty meets Overwatch)
  • Will be added to the Featured Playlist Rotation in Season Four Reloaded.

Maps

  • Red Doors
    • Further intel suggests that these Red Doors will appear [[REDACTED]] and take you to [[REDACTED]].

General

  • New Prestige items added:
    • Calling Cards
    • Emblems
  • The Killchain Perk now increases the chance to obtain all Warzone Killstreaks from loot.

Gameplay

  • Loot that spawns across Verdansk has been adjusted as follows…
    • New Gulag loadouts
    • The Sentry Gun Killstreak can be found in Red Door Control Rooms
    • The Specialist Token is now slightly more common in core BR
  • Combat Bow Killstreak damage has been increased and it will now down enemies who are directly hit.
  • Players will now drop their current equipment directly behind them when looting a Loadout Drop.
  • Vertical camera movement will no longer be locked when sliding on a downward slope.
  • Dirt Bike Updates:
    • Wheelies!
      • Lean back to lift the Dirt Bike and initiate a wheelie.
      • Lean forward to increase steering sensitivity and allow the Dirt Bike to perform sharper turns.
      • The Dirt Bike now supports leaning forward and backward in the air as well, so make sure to position yourself for that perfect landing.
  • Ascenders now allow multiple Players to use them simultaneously – allowing for quicker vertical engagements as a squad.

  • Fixed an issue in Plunder where Player vision was partially blocked with bags of money.

UI/UX

  • New Social Menu Tabs: Recent Squad and Recent Lobby
    • Added two new tabs to the Social Menu to display recent squad mates and recent game lobby members so that Players can more easily find, friend, and play with their recent team members.
    • Other Players that the Player interacted with during a match will be automatically sorted to the top of the Recent Lobby list to make it easier to report instances of cheating and/or toxicity even after the match has ended.

Accessibility

  • Text Chat Behavior (Time On Screen): Added a new accessibility option to change the visibility duration of incoming messages. Players can adjust the length of time that the text chat widget stays on screen when a new message is received. This feature is intended to support Hard of Hearing and Cognitive Overload Accessibility.
    • Players can choose their desired text chat behavior from the following options:
      • Off: The text chat will never show on the HUD for new messages
      • Default: When new messages are received, the text chat will stay on screen for 3 seconds. This is the legacy behavior that has been in use in Warzone.
      • Medium: When new messages are received, the text chat will stay on screen for 15 seconds.
      • Long: When new messages are received, the text chat will stay on screen for 30 seconds.
      • Extended: When new messages are received, the text chat will stay on screen for 60 seconds.
    • This setting can be found by opening the Accessibility Options Menu and selecting Text Chat Behavior (Time On Screen) under the Visuals tab.
    • Alternatively, this setting can be found by opening the Options Menu and selecting Text Chat Behavior (Time On Screen) under the General tab.
  • Advanced Text Chat Behavior (Time On Screen): The advanced version of the Text Chat Behavior (Time On Screen) accessibility option allows Players to customize the visibility duration of incoming messages according to message type. In other words, Players can choose different visibility durations for Player Messages compared to System Messages. In addition, Players can select Always On Screen to prevent the text chat element from fading from the HUD.
    • This can be accessed by navigating to the Text Chat Behavior (Time On Screen) option and selecting the “Advanced” button underneath.
    • Players can choose their desired text chat visibility duration for incoming Player messages (only) with the Player Messages Behavior setting.
    • Players can choose their desired text chat visibility duration for incoming system messages (only) with the System Messages Behavior setting.
    • Both of these settings provide the following options to choose from:
      • Off: The text chat will never show on the HUD for new messages
      • Default: When new messages are received, the text chat will stay on screen for 3 seconds. This is the legacy behavior that has been in use in Warzone.
      • Medium: When new messages are received, the text chat will stay on screen for 15 seconds.
      • Long: When new messages are received, the text chat will stay on screen for 30 seconds.
      • Extended: When new messages are received, the text chat will stay on screen for 60 seconds.
    • Always On Screen: This setting is accessed from the Advanced Text Chat Behavior (Time On Screen) option. When enabled, the text chat widget will stay permanently on-screen while in-game. This setting is intended to support Cognitive Overload and Blind/Low-Vision Accessibility by eliminating the need for rapid peripheral visual localization and language processing of a temporary HUD element under time pressure.
  • New Message Sound Alert: Added a new accessibility option to enable sound alerts when receiving new messages. This feature is intended to support Blind/Low-Vision Accessibility by providing a second channel for information communication – adding the sound alert allows Players to have an audio cue for new messages rather than only a visual cue. This setting applies in-game as well as in the front-end.
    • Players can choose from the following options to customize which messages they’d like to receive d sound alerts for:
      • Disabled: (Default) No audio cue will be played when new messages are received.
      • Player Messages Only: An audio cue is played when new messages are received from other Players.
      • System Messages Only: An audio cue is played when new system messages are received.
      • Both: An audio cue is played when any new message is received, including party chat and system messages.
    • This can be found by navigating to the Visuals tab within the Accessibility Options Menu and selecting New Message Sound Alert. Alternatively, this setting can also be found by navigating to the Options Menu, going to the General tab, and selecting New Message Sound Alert.
