The full Warzone Pacific Season 2 roadmap was revealed on February 9. This stacked schedule revealed not just content arriving on day one, but extras on the way throughout Season 2 as well.
From the announcement of Rebirth Island Iron Trials to a new Rebirth Reinforced layout, there’s plenty on the horizon beyond the update itself.
Following on from various Season 2 leaks, an in-game bug accidentally let slip some interesting tweaks for Caldera.
With the minimap showcasing a different outline to what the player was seeing in front of them, Raven Software quickly cleared the air to prevent more confusion.
“Maybe the map knows about a change coming to this area in Season 2?” the devs teased.
Days later, the devs revealed two massive new locations known as The Chemical Factory and Chemical Research Labs.
The Chemical Factory POI has been dropped between Mines and Docks. What once looked like a refinery now appears as Nebula V plant, with deadly gas seeping out.
Expect this to be one of the hottest drop sites in Season 2 as it comes packing valuable rewards, including a chance at the new Nebula V Bomb, more on that below.

The second map change in Season 2 doesn’t appear on the surface. Rather, new facilities have been scattered underneath Caldera. There’s only one entry point for these POIs so it’s worth preparing for a fight before jumping in.
“Fresh off the assembly line” comes a brand new “fleet of Bombers” in Warzone Season 2, early leaks first revealed. These powerful new vehicles were soon confirmed by Activision and are now live in-game.
From day one, Loadout Drops have always been invincible. In Season 2, however, that has changed as these new Bombers can outright destroy them.
To help balance these new aerial vehicles, Activision has nerfed planes as a whole. Health decreases are now in effect to make them less of a threat moving forward.
Nebula V is a brand new element in play in Warzone Season 2. Not only can this feature make your weapons stronger, but a rare Nebula V Bomb can even change how players navigate Caldera.
As a new Field Upgrade, squads are able to utilize Nebula V Ammo to their advantage. While the bullets themselves don’t deal extra damage, downing a target causes them to erupt with a poisonous gas cloud. This can prevent allies from reviving unless they have a Gas Mask.
On the more deadly side of the equation comes the Nebula V Bomb. As its name implies, this is a rare item that players can detonate on Caldera for massive damage. Following an initial blast, this item then spreads deadly gas in a wide radius for up to two minutes. Those without a Gas Mask will have to think fast and flee the area.
To counter the new Nebula V additions, teams can now rely on a Portable Decontamination Station (P.D.S.). This piece of equipment removes gas in a small area for a brief period.
This can give you a short window to revive allies in a toxic area, or even help you survive out in the gas in the final zone.
New Armored Transport Trucks are responsible for driving the toxic Nebula V gas around Caldera.
Expect to see these in almost every match throughout Season 2 but rest assured, taking them out could be the key to victory for your team.
Each vehicle contains extremely rare loot and in some cases, even a Nebula V Bomb for your squad to use.

You’ll need to be careful of its machine gun turrets and deadly mines, however, as these trucks don’t mess around.
If you’re one of many who find Caldera “boring” due to its slower pace, Redeploy Balloons have been implemented just for you.
Looking to up the ante in Season 2, this feature now lets players launch into the sky, similar to the Red Balloons in Apex Legends.
Latching onto a Redeploy Balloon will have you flying through the air for a quick rotation. This should greatly speed up navigation across the newest Warzone map.
Not only has Caldera changed in the big Season 2 patch, but Rebirth Island is also in line for some updates as well. “Something lurks within Rebirth Island’s shadows,” devs teased on February 8.
There’s no telling exactly what this means just yet, but Raven Software teased “substantial changes” are set to arrive in the middle of the season.
Furthermore, Iron Trials is making its long-awaited Warzone return, though with a big twist. Rather than focusing on the main map, Iron Trials will soon be live for Rebirth Island instead.
Serving as a more competitive Duos playlist, this mode ramps up TTK, tightens the rules, and features a different loot pool containing just Cold War weaponry.
As with every new seasonal update, Season 2 brings some extra firepower. This time around, four unique weapons are on the way to Warzone throughout the latest season.
Be sure to brush up with full details on all four weapons before they make an impact in Warzone.
Ahead of the February 14, update Raven Software provided the full Season 2 patch notes. Highlighted by nerfs to the Bren and MP-40, along with a handful of bug fixes, there was plenty to digest.

As with every new seasonal update in CoD, a full 100-Tier Battle Pass just landed in Warzone Pacific Season 2.
From two powerful weapons to a Semtex Grenade and a variety of Operator skins, there’s plenty to get your hands on this time around.
Reaching Tier 100 also provides a handful of special rewards beyond just a Legendary White Mirage Anna Skin.
