Call of Duty Warzone – Season 3 Patch Notes highlights as things are really shaken up

As well as today’s huge patch for Call of Duty Modern Warfare III, Season 3, we also have incoming updates for Warzone and its Season 3.

Here we have a returning fan-favorite map with a bunch of Points of Interest (see below), new and returning modes alongside new weapons, and adjustments to pretty much everything in the game. Buy Stations have all been moved around, so you are going to have to hunt around in different areas than you are used to and the devs hope that will encourage new combat scenarios.

Let’s have a look at some of the highlights of the new Warzone patch.

Warzone Season 3 updates and Patch Note highlights




Refine your Battle Royale tactics in a new training mode against real players and bots. Game progression is limited in this mode and results will not count against your stats. Drop in, learn the ropes and get ready to take on the world.

This mode supports:

  • 20 Players
  • 24 Bots



Get ready to dive into Resurgence just like when it all began!

As long as one of your teammates is still alive, you have a chance to redeploy after a short countdown. But as the match progresses into the late game, it’s game over for those who lose their fights. Looting, completing contracts, moving around, and engaging other players not only helps you survive but also speeds up the countdown for your teammates to come back. There are also some exclusive features in this mode which we’ll talk about in the Gameplay section below.

This mode supports:

  • 44 Players

Vehicles will be enabled for Rebirth Island Resurgence later in Season 3.

  • We have adjusted buy station locations to encourage new combat scenarios and strategies.

  • This is disabled in Ranked, Lockdown and Plunder.

» Urzikstan, Vondel | Battle Royale «

  • Climb & Punishment New Gulag Public Event
  • Gulag rounds now have a chance to trigger this public event that drops 2 ladders providing an opportunity for both players to leave the arena alive.
  • In addition to redeployment, players are rewarded with $3,500 in cash for using this mechanic.


» All Maps | All Modes «

  • Ground Loot
  • Molotovs, Thermites, and EMD grenades have been removed from ground loot.
  • We’re taking this opportunity to refine the loot experience and ensure that each item has a unique role to play. Those removed from loot will still be accessible in the loadout and we plan to take a further pass at the functional purpose of each item in the future.

Supply UAV Killstreak Improvements Quality of Life

  • Added a new functionality that highlights supply boxes through walls.

» Urzikstan | All Modes «

  • Heavy Chopper Balance

  • JOKER Damage increased to 48% of vehicle health, up from 32%.
  • Semtex Damage increased to 20% of vehicle health, up from 15%.
  • Frag Damage increased to 20% of vehicle health, up from 15%.
  • Full Refuel and Repair time increased to 70 seconds, up from 60.
  • Max Fuel time decreased to 190, down from 210.
  • The heavy chopper has been a force to be reckoned with, often over-rewarding those hunkered down within. With the above changes, the pilot now needs more regular and longer refuel sessions. We’re also rewarding expert use of the C4 and JOKER against the vehicle itself.

  • Gulag Loadout Refresh
  • Gulag loadouts have been updated.
