  • PlayStation 5: 52.0 GB
  • PlayStation 4: 52.0 GB
  • Xbox Series X / Xbox Series S: 57.8 GB
  • Xbox One: 57.8 GB

Two brand new Operators came as part of Season 2 Reloaded, available in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. The first is Wolf, who has a unique Finishing Move that involves his pet canine attacking the enemy. Wolf can be unlocked through a special Store Bundle when the update launches.

The second Operator is Rivas, who will be released at some point later on in the season in a separate Store Bundle.

New ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle

The ZRG 20mm sniper looks like it might be pretty powerful in Warzone.

As with every new weapon added to Black Ops Cold War, the ZRG 20mm sniper rifle is also available in Warzone – although Activision has noted that it won’t be released until later on in the season.

According to its official description, the ZRG “boasts a higher bullet velocity than any other weapon in its class,” featuring a fast reload speed and likely good damage for shots to the head, chest, and shoulders.

Teaser in Season 2 Reloaded Roadmap

The official Roadmap for Season 2 Reloaded includes a Warzone image front and center with a caption that reads, “The threat rises in Verdansk.”

This is most likely about the current zombie plague where a throng of the undead keeps moving from location to location following their arrival at the Shipwreck POI.

The popular theory among the community is that all of this leads to the Verdansk getting nuked and replaced with a brand new map, which could be located at the Ural Mountains, according to leaks.

Warzone Season 2 Reloaded weapon changes

The AUG is the only weapon to be hit with changes in the midseason update

The controversial AUG is the only weapon nerfed in the new midseason update. The base recoil for the weapon has been increased, meaning it’ll be slightly less effective at range.
