Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 4 Reloaded is set to launch on Thursday, July 15.

Season 4 arrived on June 17 and is set to wind down on August 9. That means the Reloaded update arrives exactly in the middle, giving players just over three weeks to soak in the new content.

Warzone Payload mode in Season 4 Reloaded

Among the many additions expected for the Season 4 Reloaded patch, Warzone’s latest game mode is set to spice things up. Known as ‘Payload,’ the latest mode drops teams of 40 into battle as they attempt to escort a Payload through the map.

Throughout a match, players are able to deploy barriers and other obstacles to stop the other team from progressing. Be sure to check out our complete Payload guide to get ahead of the curve before the mode comes online.

Capture The Flag is finally returning in Cold War.

The fan-favorite mode is finally returning in Black Ops Cold War. Formerly a staple competitive mode, Capture The Flag hasn’t been seen since 2017’s WWII release.

Treyarch is finally bringing the objective mode back as part of the Season 4 Reloaded update. If you’re unfamiliar with CTF, the name suggests what you’ll be doing. The goal is to reach the enemy ‘base,’ grab their flag, and return it to your side of the map.

There’s no telling what maps CTF will be available on right out of the gate, though Treyarch has confirmed it will boast its very own playlist upon arrival.

New Operators in Season 4 Reloaded

The beginning of Season 4 gave us the C58 Assault Rifle, the Nail Gun SMG, and the controversially powerful MG82 LMG. While those three have had their time in the spotlight, additional weapons are now on the way.

The OTs 9 is another new SMG revealed in the Season 4 roadmap. It’s too early to gauge just how powerful it might be, though we’ll keep you updated with a full unlock guide once it’s available.

Last but not least is the Mace, a new melee weapon joining the mix as part of the Season 4 Reloaded update.
