This changes with Season 4 Reloaded
New weapons for Warzone and Cold War
The two new weapons will be of particular interest to those of you who like close-range combat. With a new SMG and a thick melee bruiser, you’ll be well equipped!
OTs 9 SMG
The new operator Weaver was already announced at the start of Season 4, with the mid-season update he now also appears in the game. However, you should not expect him right at the start, he will only be playable a little later. Instead, his shop bundle contains three legendary blueprints and a new finisher.
Payload: For the first time there is an object-based mode for the Battle Royal: Here you fight for parts of crashed satellites, either for Perseus or NATO. One side tries to protect the transport vehicles, the other has to throw obstacles in their way while a timer runs out. Players end up in the match with their own loadouts, but can find killstreaks and equipment – so much like in Plunder. Each team consists of a maximum of 20 operators.
What about the red doors? The official announcement contains a hint concerning the mysterious portals. However, nothing concrete is revealed yet. We assume that a special event will start at the end of the season, which will then lead over to Season 5. Recently there was an annoying bug with the doors:
Multiplayer: New Map and Modes
A familiar map returns: Rush is a new edition of a popular map from Black Ops 2. Here you play in 6-vs-6 on a branching paintball facility. You can also load the map in private matches.
Capture the Flag: The classic among the classics, which you know very well from many games. You capture your opponents’ flag and bring it back to your base. To make the whole thing more exciting, the respawn times are shorter.
Paintball Moshpit: A new mode that only starts a while after the update. As the name suggests, you will shoot at each other with paintballs – in different game variants and on different maps.
Zombies: The Wall of the Dead
New Map: The Wall of the Dead is the latest expansion for zombie fans, bringing with it an all-new mission and the next chapter in the “Dark Aether” story. You play in the streets and underground tunnels of East Berlin, where the undead lie in wait for you. Fortunately, you can activate a special helper: the robot Klaus. Wall of the Dead starts on 16 July 2021.
New bomb: You can craft the new grenade LT53 Kazimir, which implodes and pulls all undead in the vicinity into a black hole.
What else happens in CoD?
The cheater problem: Unfortunately, Season 4 Reloaded also suffers massively from cheaters. Because of immoral offers, cheaters are currently overrunning the servers in droves.
CoD 2021: More and more details about the new Call of Duty are leaking out, even if official announcements are still a long time coming. We have an overview with all the info on Vanguard for you.
