Warzone’s Operation Flashback update has added a load of meta-defining weapons and rare items back into the game, including Dragon’s Breath shotguns. 

The new operation was rolled out on November 18 with the full patch notes being posted by Raven Software. Included in the update is a massive amount of fresh content, including a rework to the Buy Stations, as well as different events.

There’s one line in Raven’s statement that could lead to an enormous meta shakeup, though – which will be exciting for many members of the community.

In the official blog post, the dev team wrote: “Operation: Flashback also features a dedicated item pool curated with weapons that many veterans will recognize as “meta-defining” since ’s launch.”

In general terms, they said the following will feature in the content shakeup:

  • Double-barreled Dragon’s Breath shotguns
  • Semi-auto do-it-all marksman rifles
  • Akimbo weapons
  • Other armaments

On top of that, rare items – which they were much more specific about – will be returning to Warzone.
