Warzone is set to get another major map overhaul in Season 6, according to new Modern Warfare leaks; the battle royale map will now be connected by multiple Metro stations, after five seasons of Verdansk subway keeping its doors closed.

Modern Warfare’s battle royale has undergone some pretty drastic map changes in its last few seasonal updates. Most recently, Warzone added an Apex Legends style train that chugs around the map, and blew open its iconic center-stage Stadium.

Infinity Ward is apparently planning to finally add the long-teased Metro subway system to the battle royale next season now too. That means changes to a number of points of interest, including Stadium, Airport, Promenade, and some portions of downtown Verdansk.

The image leak, which was recently rediscovered after first being uncovered by BKTOOR_ in early August, shows seven stops for Verdansk’s new “Metro” system.

According to BKTOOR_, these leaked map images will be collectible in Warzone during Season 5. They suggested the new intel would be available in the “sixth week,” during the “seventh step” of a potential series of seasonal easter eggs or challenges.

The Season 6 subway appears to already have a predetermined route, and will travel to the same seven stations. The potential Metro stops are as follows:

Possible new Metro subway stations

  • M1 ⁠— Verdansk International Airport
  • M2 ⁠— Verdansk Stadium
  • M3 ⁠— Gorengard Lumber Yard
  • M4 ⁠— Downtown Tavorsk District
  • M5 ⁠— Barakett Promenade East
  • M6 ⁠— Verdansk Train Station
  • M7 ⁠— Torsk Bloc

It’s worth noting these projected subway stops may change slightly heading into Season 6 too. Infinity Ward has proven they are happy to swap and change POIs in the battle royale for each season, so that could well happen again.

Black Ops Cold War is also on the horizon, and that’s tipped to take Warzone back into the early 1980s. Verdansk could have been a very different place 40 years ago; Treyarch may overhaul much of the original map to show that change.

The secret nuclear warhead inside Bunker 11 was apparently “snuck in under Verdansk.”

This revelation the Verdansk subway will finally be opening seems to also confirm the long-teased Season 6 storyline. An unbuilt warhead, uncovered by players in Bunker 11 as part of a Season 4 easter egg, was “snuck in under Verdansk.”

Call of Duty insiders are tipping this mysterious nuclear weapon to be the “grand finale” of Warzone’s opening Modern Warfare era. Battle royale players could even find clues about the impending detonation in the subways.

It’s worth keeping in mind Infinity Ward has yet to officially confirm the ‘Metro’ coming to Verdansk though. Season 5’s Reloaded patch only just dropped, so the devs will likely let that update breathe before announcing anything new.

Another massive Warzone event is heating up as popular content creator and battle royale champion Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is hosting his very own tournament with $300,000 on the line.

Following close behind Vikkstar’s original Warzone competition, HusKerrs is next in line for his own huge Call of Duty event. HusKerrs Howl aims to crown the best partners in the world as this unique event focuses on Duos action.

After making history as the first player to pass six figures in Warzone winnings, it’s only fitting that HusKerrs’ event comes with the biggest prize pool yet. A whopping $300,000 is up for grabs over the course of two weeks.

From the teams that will be dropping in to when each round of action is taking place, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event.

What is the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event?

The HusKerrs Howl event is one of the biggest Warzone tournaments to date. Not just in terms of prizing, but in how long it’s set to last and how many teams will be getting involved.

Duos will be dropping into Verdansk across multiple weeks in order to qualify for the Finals. Additionally, there’s also a special one-off Zombie Trios section to get things going before the Duos competition really begins.

A brand new Twitch channel has been created just for this event with HusKerrs set to host. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience. Expect almost every competitor to be sharing their own perspective throughout the tournament as well.

HusKerrs Howl will be starting with a Zombie Royale showdown.

First up is the special Zombie Day event on Friday, October 30 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. This is a unique Trios competition in the Zombie Royale playlists. Only one team can take out the prize for what is essentially a warm-up run before the real show starts up.

The following day on October 31, Duos will be dropping in for the first round of qualifying action. This will be followed up by the second and third rounds on November 5 and November 6 respectively.

Last but not least, the best Duos from the qualifiers will advance through to the Finals. This takes place on November 7 to determine the overall winner of the HusKerrs Howl event.

This particular competition is for Duos only.

This particular Warzone competition is for Duos only and will feature a double-elimination bracket. 16 teams will be dropping in for the first day of action. They will go head to head until the very end with only the Top 3 qualifying for the Finals.

For the final two days of the qualifiers, only eight duos will be playing. From here, the Top 2 make it into the Finals. This makes seven Duos so HusKerrs will be taking the eighth and final spot.

As teams are going head to head, the Duo with the highest point total in each matchup will advance. No different from most Warzone events, teams will be awarded one point per elimination. There’s currently no telling how many points will be awarded for higher placements in each match.

Stay tuned over the coming days for full recaps and results as the action gets underway. Big names such as Symfuhny, Aydan, and TeePee are all expected for the event. So it’s sure to be an intense tournament.
