Warzone players are turning into zombies ahead of rumoured nuking event

Warzone Season 3 is just around the corner and things are starting to escalate in Verdansk.
Warzone players are turning into zombies ahead of rumoured nuking event

A  mysterious green gas is spreading across Verdansk, and it converts dead Warzone players into mindless zombies.

A green cloud of radiation started spreading above Verdansk and asides from killing players, it is also turning them into zombies instead of sending them to a gulag.

Players are reporting that you can only become a zombie if you are playing in squads with at least one player remaining in human form, while solo players are simply staying dead. 

As soon as you step into the zone with the green gas, you will immediately start to rapidly take damage and if the radiation kills you, you will respawn right there where you died, but as a zombie with unique abilities.

The skillset which you get as a zombie is the same one featured during the Haunting of Verdansk event. You possess a really strong and fast melee attack with bare hands, you can jump like Michael Jordan in Space Jam, and run really fast.

You also have gas grenades at your disposal, as well as powerful EMP strikes around you, but with a long cooldown.

Asides from radiation zones and zombie players, the Shipwreck and Prison areas on the map are now marked with huge orange circles with a red nuclear symbol on them.

The message is quite clear here, those are the epicentres of the contamination and are about to get nuked. The Verdansk nuke event has been heavily rumoured for months now, and just recently, warheadless nuclear missiles started falling on Verdansk seemingly completely random.

This all should lead to a rumoured new 80s themed Warzone map and the start of Season 3.

Call of Duty Warzone Season 3 is expected to start on 22nd April 2021.
