Infinity Ward subtly teased a new event in the latest Modern Warfare and Warzone patch notes, potentially hinting at a major Season 4 development.

As Warzone enters its third month and Modern Warfare gears up for the next major update, Infinity Ward has begun to tease what’s in the pipeline.

The latest set of patch notes delivered on May 18 left a subtle line of text at the very end. While the teasers have only just begun, let’s try to put the pieces together on what it could all mean.

The partially redacted line of text could be teasing quite a few things.

Could the teaser be hinting at Warzone’s future?

We’re still early into the lifecycle of Infinity Ward’s battle royale hit, yet drastic changes could already be on the horizon. With the Dam slowly leaking, and new playable areas leaked already, it seems certain a map change is on the way.

Three redacted words in the new line of text could reveal what’s next for Verdansk. Perhaps some kind of explosive ordinance is what’s being obscured for now. “<redacted> is inbound,” implies that something is on the way — something that requires the “correct authorization” of someone higher up the chain.

A homing strike of sorts would definitely be one way to bring about drastic map changes. Maybe an airstrike targets the Dam and washes away old sections of the Verdansk map… only time will tell.

What could it mean for Modern Warfare Season 4?

Players have already been privy to upcoming weapons in Modern Warfare’s next season, but each update brings about much more than that. From new maps to Operators, this teaser could be hinting at Season 4’s narrative direction.

Season 3’s cinematic united Ghost and Alex as they recapture Rust from enemy forces. Infinity Ward could be teasing the introduction of another playable character with this line of text.

Maybe a major Modern Warfare villain is setting up for a return with a bang, the possibilities are wide open. This could pave the way for a new Operator as our Season 3 heroes come toe to toe with a familiar foe.

There’s no telling exactly what Infinity Ward has planned for their hugely popular battle royale, nor the record-setting Modern Warfare. Though it’s clear that something massive is right around the corner.

Season 4 is expected to kick off on Wednesday, June 3. Keep your eyes peeled as Infinity Ward continues to release new easter eggs in the lead-up.

How to glitch outside Nuketown ’84 for free kills in Black Ops Cold War

While Nuketown has appeared in more Call of Duty titles than any other map, the new Black Ops Cold War variant has come with a frustrating issue that allows players to break out of the map.

Nuketown has long been a fan favorite in the CoD franchise. The close-quarters map is chaotic from start to finish as players jump right into the action without having to track enemies down. It’s now in its eighth version, though the new iteration has come with a painful exploit.

If you’ve played on an older version of the map before, you’ll likely know every little nook and cranny. Nuketown ‘84 still has one of these little secrets intact as RC-XD users can race around outside the map on a special path.

Typically, this is a good way to get your explosive buddy across to the other side of the map. It can travel safely and emerge without alerting nearby enemies. However, it turns out players can now access this space as well.

This area has only ever been accessible for the tiny vehicle, until now. Players have discovered a way to break through the traditional boundaries and camp outside of the map for some of the easiest kills you’ll ever see.

From this glitched location, you get a clear line of sight to the side of one of the houses. The most broken part of being here though is that your presence doesn’t have any impact on enemy spawns. They can still appear directly in front of you without realizing, leading to some effortless kills.

Dexerto staff personally encountered this issue while playing on PC. There appears to be a location right at the edge of the playable space that avoids the ‘out of bounds’ instakill effect.

Wedging yourself between some cacti and the fence will keep you alive outside of the map. Obviously, this can be shut down after a few kills once players realize your position. However, it could be too little too late.

Treyarch is yet to address this particular issue. However, something so critical is sure to be fixed in the very near future.

In the meantime, make sure you’re keeping an eye out for pesky enemies well outside the map.
