Call of Duty: Warzone’s players have discovered a variety of undisclosed changes to the battle royale, including some rare killstreaks, map adjustments (including some eerie ghost audio), and a Subway easter egg hunt.
With every new Modern Warfare and Warzone season, Infinity Ward has delivered a list of updates that they explain in updated patch notes. But, alongside those publicly available adjustments, the developers also include some hidden changes that the player-base is left to figure out on its own.
Of those secret additions or modifications to Warzone, fans have uncovered some legitimately game-changing discoverable killstreaks amongst Verdansk’s loot as well as some interesting, albeit not-so-dramatic map transformations.
Oh, and like Season 5’s Stadium easter egg, Warzone’s newest fast-travel system, the subway line, contains a way for players to unlock a Legendary Weapon Blueprint as well.
New Discoverable Killstreaks
Most players have likely realized that Self-Revive Kits can now be found among ground loot, after formerly only being available through Verdansk’s Buy Stations. This means that, instead of shelling out the $4,500 to give yourself a second chance once downed, players can save some of their money in Season 6.
Another one you can find that is also (somewhat) purchasable is the Advanced UAV, which usually can be activated for $12,000 by buying three UAVs, but now can be found in bunkers as well. Most notably, it can sometimes be found in the easter egg hunt’s bunker.
But two other, much rarer killstreaks are also available in the game now. As noted by adventurous players, there are absurdly powerful Foresight and Specialist killstreaks to be found, albeit with incredibly low spawn rates in Verdansk’s bunkers.
The former lets you see every single coming circle for the game, like a souped-up Recon contract, while the latter gives a player all of the game’s perks at once.
Map changes (and creepy children)
A few subtle map changes have been discovered by players across Verdansk. The Air Traffic Control Tower, overlooking the Airport POI, has had its interior slightly revamped so that it is less cluttered when players ascend through the elevator shaft and reach the stairway just before the spot so many love to camp.
In another very light adjustment, the game’s relatively recent train (which is fitted with a variety of high-tier loot) no longer spawns at the exact same spot and instead starts at a rotation of locations.
The last noteworthy change to the map is an October-themed audio one that foreshadows Infinity Ward’s Halloween plans. When walking around the map, most prominently in the forested areas by Lumber and Stadium, players have heard a creepy child’s laughter, bringing spooky Zombies vibes.
Season 6 Subway easter egg hunt
Like most of the game’s easter eggs, the developers have slid in a secret set of clues that players can follow in order to obtain loot like the aforementioned Foresight killstreak, a Juggernaut suit, and the Firebrand Bruen MK9 Legendary Blueprint.
You can find exact instructions for accomplishing the easter egg hunt here, but, as a preview, it involves the subway system, cryptic codes, and in-game paintings.
For now, these are all of the secret changes that fans have found hidden amongst Warzone’s offerings. But we’ll be monitoring and exploring Verdansk, so make sure to follow us on Twitter @DexertoINTEL as it’s always possible that more get discovered in the lead-up to Halloween.
