New Warzone events explained: Jailbreak, Fire Sale, Supply Choppers

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Season 4 has brought a variety of new content, and the three new in-game events for Warzone are some of the most intriguing.

While many hoped Infinity Ward would revamp Warzone’s Verdansk map, they focused instead on adjusting their battle royale’s gameplay—with Jailbreak, Fire Sale, and Supply Chopper events providing a major spontaneous shift in action.

As explained in the season’s patch notes, the aforementioned three game-changers can occur in any match and, if they do, just one will pop up and it will arrive without any advance notice in the middle of the match. While their timing is similar, the way each impacts is entirely different.

Warzone’s Jailbreak event can mean a ton of players parachuting back in from their deaths across Verdansk.

Jailbreak

The Jailbreak event is insane. Toward the mid-game, a “Jailbreak Imminent” alert pops up, signaling that there is one minute until every single dead player, whether in the Gulag or spectating, re-deploys.

It’s straightforward, fits the name, and gives players a reason to spectate instead of quitting out, even if their entire team is dead and they’re simply spectating opponents. The minute timer gives those on the ground a chance to get situated, and those awaiting re-deployment a chance to strategize. It can be pure chaos, but very fun—especially for kill-hungry players who get gifted a much larger lobby to hopefully break world records with.

The Fire Sale event means 60 seconds of unfiltered shopping glee.

Fire Sale

Like a Black Friday shopping mall, a Warzone Fire Sale is the opportunity to buy nearly everything you could want in a limited time, but with the risk of trampling. When a sale starts, a clock starts ticking and every living player on Verdansk gets one minute to hit a Buy Station.

Re-deployments are free, Self-Revives are free, and everything but Loadouts are discounted by up to 80 percent. This means every player, regardless of initial funds, can get absolutely stocked up if they manage to withstand the heat of a suddenly magnetized Buy Station.

Supply Choppers

Similar in consequence to the Fire Sale, the Supply Choppers event can entirely shift how equipped your team is heading into the late-game. When the moment comes, a bunch of large, armored, non-lethal helicopters begin circling Verdansk—these can be shot down, upon which they drop a care package with a huge amount of loot.

 

Infinity Ward
Warzone’s Supply Choppers are loud, hefty, and filled to the brim with loot for your team to procure.

It takes a ton of damage to bring one down, but a goldmine will await once you do. Among the loot within, players can be sure to find three UAVs, two armor boxes, two munitions boxes, a gas mask, grenade launcher, and a lot of cash with the possibility of even more miscellaneous goodies.

Opening the package does take much longer than Loadouts though, so be careful—especially since other teams will be drawn to the drop, which can sometimes drift away from you as the helicopter begins falling, and may try to steal it.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
