Call of Duty: Warzone is about to receive a complete overhaul on 8th December when the long-awaited Pacific update hits the game, ditching Verdansk in favour of the new, tropical, Caldera

The new map is far from the only thing coming to the free-to-play battle royale, as plenty of fresh weaponry will also become available, alongside playlists to showcase every change in Warzone Pacific. 

If you're feeling overwhelmed with everything that's coming to Warzone with the Pacific Season 1 update, don't worry, we've broken it all down for you.

It's worth noting that when we mention the update being available on 8th December, that's exclusively for Vanguard owners, if this isn't your case, you'll have to wait until the 9th.

The following will be available starting 8th December for all players: 

  • 40 Weapons: The core 38 weapons from Vanguard's launch, plus two free functional weapons in the Season One Battle Pass.
  • Over a Dozen Operators: Each of the Operators from S.O.T.F. 002–005 are ready to drop in alongside Special Operations Task Force 006 arriving this season.
  • Calling Cards, Emblems, and more.

Cross-progression between Vanguard and Warzone will be enabled, allowing you to rank up through Seasonal Prestige and unlock new content through the Battle Pass and Challenges.

Vanguard Royale

Available for all on the 9th, with Vanguard users getting to try it a day earlier, this mode will only feature vehicles, weapons, and loadouts from Vanguard.

  • New Vehicles and Dogfighting. Fly fighter planes that rain down fire on foes or head for the AA guns or trucks to shoot them out of the skies. There are also other ground-based vehicles, including a Squad Transport all-terrain car that will help your squad cut through and around the island.
  • A Focus on Vanguard Weapons. Loadouts can only contain Vanguard weaponry, streamlining the meta for more accessibility and room for experimentation. Expect all weapons around the island to also be from Vanguard. Operator selection is also limited to Vanguard soldiers.
  • Circle Collapse Changes, In-Game Events, and more. The radii and times for Circle Collapses are altered to offer a different pace of play, especially with dogfighting overhead. Also, expect an in-game event at each Circle Collapse, Bombing Runs, and different items both within Caldera’s overworld and contract rewards.

With cross-progression on deck right from the get-go, players should feel rewarded regardless of if they're playing Warzone or Vanguard multiplayer.
