Months after their surprise removal in Warzone, Fighter Planes have now returned as part of the Season 4 update. Here’s everything there is to know.

When Warzone transitioned into the Pacific era, players were greeted with loads of new content. This included Vanguard Royale, an exclusive battle royale experience with World War 2-themed vehicles including planes.

However, these flying machines were quickly deemed extremely overpowered. Pilots would abuse them to boost their K/D, win games, and even end up banned for doing so. Randomly on March 4, Raven Software revealed that they would be turned off while they “investigate an issue.

Ever since, devs remained silent. That was, until the Warzone Season 4 patch arrived three months later, marking the return of Warzone’s aerial vehicles.

Planes finally return to Warzone

Fighter Planes had been missing in action for 16 weeks in total. While a timetable for their return was unclear, devs locked in their surprise comeback as part of the enormous Season 4 update.

At first, Planes were exclusive to Vanguard Royale, but in the Season 2 Reloaded update, that mode was removed from the game to create one large BR experience for all players.

Now, these Planes are accessible across all standard BR playlists in Caldera.

Players will once again need to be cautious of enemies raining down fire from the skies thanks to these Fighter Planes. While they’ve returned in their nerfed state, they’re certainly still a force to be reckoned with.
