Infinity Ward has pushed through yet another update for Call of Duty: Warzone. However, unlike the normal content drop updates that the community's been receiving the past few days, this patch is a little more confusing. As of right now, helicopters have been disabled in the battle royale due to an unknown reason. Although, we can assume that a bug or glitch of some kind was the reason behind the removal. This is only for the night version of Verdansk.
Along with the helicopters, the popular pumpkin heads have also been removed. The reasoning behind this is known, as the developers stated a bug was plaguing the heads. Whenever they come back, you can check out to earn them in both Warzone and Modern Warfare in our previous article.

Those were the only gameplay items that were removed from Warzone with this update. Although, there was something added as well, being the new game mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. A simple renaming of the Juggernaut Royale, the new mode is meant to get players in the fall spirit and will see the Juggernaut armor drop considerably more around Verdansk . Infinity Ward also renamed some multiplayer modes in Modern Warfare, as they usually do around the holidays.

- Disabling the pumpkin heads due to a bug
- Disabling the helicopter in the night version of Verdansk#Warzone
- BR Solo Survivor
- Juggourdnaut Royale
- Plunder: Candy Collector
Also arriving with Juggourdnaut Royale is BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector. Like with the renaming of Juggernaut Royale, Plunder: Candy Collector sees players collecting candy instead of cash, meanwhile BR Solo Survivor takes advantage of the night map of Verdansk, however, it removes the zombies from the Zombie Royale gamemode.
All of this Halloween-themed content will likely remain in Warzone until 3rd November when the Haunting of Verdansk event ends. However, it's unclear when the helicopters or pumpkin heads will return. Hopefully, it's at least a few days before the Halloween event concludes.
