'Call of Duty: Warzone' Season 4 Update: What's new and what's changed?
The introduction of the Warzone Season 4 patch comes with several new additions and changes. First off are three new in-match events: Fire Sale, Jailbreak, and Supply Chopper. Fire Sale will discount Buy Station items up to 80 percent, with some items going for free. Jailbreak will bring all previously eliminated players back to the map. Supply Choppers will bring an armored helicopter to the game that can be destroyed in exchange for loot. These are additions that offer great reasons to return.
Additionally, the patch introduces a new mode called Warzone Rumble, which challenges two teams comprised of 50 to drop into locations and fight each other with custom loadouts as well as vehicles and weapons with res-spawns enabled. Similarly, there's a new contract: Contraband. It gives you a permanent Blueprint Reward that can net you a helicopter extraction. The new contract comes with a new active playlist that includes a rotation of Solos, Duos, Trios, Quds, Blood Money, and Warzone Rumble.
In addition to plenty of new loot to collect, the patch adds new Weapon Mastery Challenges, general bug fixes, and other playlists you can check out at your leisure. These include Scrapyard 24/7, Trench Mosh Pit (2v2), Blueprint Gunfight, and Barakett Promenade for Ground War. If you want to take part in any of this new content, you'll have to make sure you update your game accordingly.
If you're unfamiliar with the Warzone portion of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, it's a battle royale-like mode where 150 players engage in combat against each other. You don't need to own Modern Warfare to play, as Warzone itself is free-to-play, and that's part of where its massive success and player count has come from. It's definitely worth getting into if you enjoy games like Fortnite or PUBG.
