Call of Duty: Warzone’s last hoorah is upon us, as Operation Flashback gets underway on November 18. Here are the full patch notes for the event, including Dragon’s Breath shotguns, DMRs, and Specialist Tokens galore.

After 600-plus days in Verdansk, Warzone will be heading to the Pacific, Caldera map in early December. To celebrate the game with one last set of fireworks, the devs are, fittingly, bringing back tons of firepower alongside practically everything from Warzone’s past.

Remember when Verdansk was dominated by DMRs and Dragon’s Breath R9-0 “Doof Doofs”? Remember the days of Specialist Tokens in the Nakatomi Plaza vault and Buy Station Bombardments?

Literally everything you may have loved or hated from Warzone’s Verdansk era is coming back before Vanguard’s Pacific integration. Unfortunately, they haven’t answered prayers for an FN SCAR buff — but there’s more than enough to distract from that.

Warzone Operation Flashback: Ground loot changes & events

The DMR was a notorious demon in Verdansk.

Verdansk’s soldiers keep their boots on the ground, so it’s important to know what loot is on the ground. In Operation Flashback, that loot is supposed to include “double-barreled Dragon’s Breath shotguns, semi-auto do-it-all marksman rifles, [and] akimbo weapons galore.” 

If that sounds like a hostile trip down memory lane, just wait until you hear about the in-game events that are returning… Ground Fall satellite crashes, Juggernaut drops, and a brand-new weapons drop are among this celebration’s randomized events.
