It's time for another refresh as Warzone Season 3 Reloaded is coming right up with the midseason update set to deliver tons of exciting new content for players to dive into.

An all-new LTM will arrive in Season 3 Reloaded, along with a new Warzone Perk, Rebirth Island feature, and several other additional new items. Here are all the details of what fans can expect when Warzone Season 3 Reloaded goes live.

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded - Underground Transit System

It turns out the rumbling and creaking beneath Caldera’s surface before Season Three’s launch was the rickety minecarts being rediscovered by intrepid explorers, who were busy opening a new way to get around the island!

Developed by Toys for Bob, this new Underground Transit System features 14 access points, indicated on the Tac Map and minimap by a silver “vault door” symbol.

Those who played Caldera during Season Two already know where seven of these access points are, as they are the “hidden” Nebula 5 bunkers. The door to the mine-cart hub room can be found right after dropping into each bunker.

The other seven access points are small hatches into the mine-cart hub area. Here, you can find a map of the system, with each hub location corresponding to a letter and number on your Tac Map.

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded - Warzone Serpentine Perk

Available in the Perk 1 slot for all players after the update, Serpentine’s description is as follows:

“Sprinting reduces incoming damage from bullets, explosives, and fire by 20%.”

Will it be an “auto-pick”? Not necessarily — consider some of the other options in the Blue Perk 1 slot: currently, Double Time (which boosts Tactical Sprint) and Cold Blooded (which directly counters Combat Scout) are two extremely popular choices in the current meta. Then there is Quick Fix, which shaves seconds off health-regeneration time, which the most elite players tend to gravitate toward. Additionally, there is E.O.D., a great Perk for those who despise dying to explosives.

As for the shooter, a “snake” indicator will pop up after hitting someone who has Serpentine. This clear feedback allows you to send a quick follow-up shot — potentially with a Sniper Support weapon if they are close enough — and gives enough information to start an engagement with a still-massive advantage.

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded - New Warzone Items

In addition to new Perk Satchels, which will now appear on Rebirth Island along with Caldera, Warzone will add three new items to its loot pool in Battle Royale modes: the Gulag Entry Token, Redeploy Extraction Token, and Speed Boost.  There will also be a new Field Upgrade – the Radar Jammer – to be added to all modes’ item pool.

Gulag Entry Token

Developed by Raven, this token brandishes the infamous post-death symbol and binds to your Operator on pickup. Only one can be carried at a time, and if one is picked up or kept after the Gulag is closed, you’ll receive Cash compensation for holding one.

If you perish while holding a Gulag Entry Token, you will be sent back to the Gulag rather than needing to be bought back or eliminated from the game. Then it’s like your first death all over again: fight in a 1v1 duel to survive and redeploy.

Redeploy Extraction Token

The other token – also developed by Raven – is something that Warzone veterans may be familiar with — a token that grants an automatic redeploy without any need to visit the Gulag or to be bought back at a Buy Station.

Just like the Gulag Entry Token, this one also deactivates once the Hold shuts down late in a match, and players who hold on to it for that long receive a Cash prize as compensation.

Its usefulness is obvious, but its presence is rare. Do not expect to find these as often as Gulag Entry Tokens, which will already be of Legendary rarity.

Speed Boost

This buff, often found in Warzone’sClash mode, is another rare item that could appear in a Supply Box.

Once it is picked up, it will automatically grant the Operator a temporary movement buff. Sliding while having this boost grants a quick way around the map, and it allows for a ton of potential movement techniques, such as parkour lines and jumps, which can help before or during engagements.

Like the Redeploy Extraction Token, the Speed Boost will not be a common item in Supply Boxes. And once picked up, its effectiveness will be for an extremely limited time. Make the most of this boost, and it will generously reward you and the squad.

Radar Jammer

Similar to how this tool works in Call of Duty Multiplayer, the Radar Jammer is a Field Upgrade that scrambles the TacMap of enemy players and prevents Killstreaks for anyone within a short radius.

This Field Upgrade cannot be equipped for modes such as Plunder but can be found around the map in Supply Boxes or on the ground in rare cases.

As an area denial tool, the Jammer can be a great mid-to-late game item like the P.D.S. which can change how a squad approaches their final battles. However, just like other upgrades, the Jammer can be hacked by an Operator using the Engineer perk, so be mindful of where you place this effective device!

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded new LTM - Champion of Caldera

Launching on the first day of Classified Arms Reloaded, Champion of Caldera features 150 maximum players and a single, continuously closing circle in a Battle Royale-style fight for survival.

All Operators will drop in with their Custom Loadout, a Gas Mask, and a single Redeploy Extraction Token. The item pool is slightly altered to emphasize equipment not normally found in Loadouts and Epic- to Legendary-rarity weapons. Collect Cash to visit an upgraded Buy Station, which features the Advanced UAV, Explosive Bow, and even the Specialist Bonus for a hefty fee.

Most notably: kills in this game mode immediately refill player health, equipment, and ammo, incentivizing would-be Champions to play aggressively and eliminate the competition directly to have the best chance at victory.

That's everything you'll need to be clued in with for the upcoming Warzone Season 3 Reloaded Update.
