Call of Duty fans have discovered some changes in Warzone following the April 28 update – but some of them were surprisingly left out of the patch notes. Here are all the unannounced changes that have been found so far.

Warzone’s latest patch on April 28 has brought around many changes for fans to experience such as a new contract, new gunsmith customs, and more.

However, after logging to play the newly-updated Warzone, players noticed that there were some adjustments that had not been listed in the latest set of patch notes.

Drop weapons in Warzone

Among those hidden changes was a feature that many fans have been demanding since the release of Warzone on March 10 – the ability to freely drop weapons for teammates from the inventory tab.

Previously, Warzone players would need to find another gun on the floor to trade in its place when sharing weapons with a teammate, making it much more awkward to share loot with your squad.

The weapon drop feature is now available for all players to take advantage of, despite the fact Infinity Ward left it as a surprise by omitting the change from the patch notes.

Bounty Contract changes

Warzone’s latest update saw the addition of a brand new contract, ‘Most Wanted’, which, opposed to the BR’s original bounty contract, allows players to put a bounty on their own heads to revive their teammates.

This change has come at the cost of the previous bounty contracts, outside of the solo playlist, however, as Warzone fans have noticed that the former bounty contracts are nowhere to be found in-game.

The change was not received as positively as the weapon drop feature was, unfortunately, with popular streamers such as Ninja and TeePee voicing their disappointment with the former contract’s removal.

Warzone Access Cards

Infinity Ward has also seemingly teased some future changes to Warzone, as players have been finding new “access cards” following the latest update.

While it is unclear what these access cards have any current use, some have suggested that they may be linked to some of the locked bunkers that can be found in Verdansk.

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
