In case this launch wasn’t big enough, there’s a $20,000 Warzone tournament happening right now.

Blueprint Blitz is giving players a chance to get some unique weapon designs

More traditionally aligned to Warzone’s battle royale nature, the Blueprint Blitz special event will give players a change to earn permanent weapon blueprints for their favorite loadouts.

Missed a skin from a previous season? Now’s your chance to get it. Dexerto’s James Busby has all the details.

Get to know the new Operator, Weaver

July 15, 4:30am GMT

Is he a villain or a friend? Who really knows, but what we do know is that new Warzone operator Grigori Weaver likes to play both sides of the Cold War.


He’s unlockable in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, and you can drop into Verdansk as the patched-up leader.

Mastering Payload, Warzone’s first objective-based game mode

July 15, 4:20am GMT

Warzone is getting a new game mode in Season 4 Reloaded, and for the first time, it’s not entirely reliant on kills.

Payload is adding a more traditional FPS experience to Warzone (almost like Call of Duty interestingly…), dividing Verdansk into two teams of 20 who have to move their ‘payloads’ from Point A to B. Here’s exactly how it works.

Payload is the first objective-based game mode in Warzone.

New OTs 9 SMG ready to pack a punch

July 15, 4:10am GMT

If previous seasons are to go by, then the new weapon is set to be pretty busted on launch. The OTs 9 SMG looks to be no different, with an eyewatering fire rate that could disrupt the meta.


Before you can equip it in Warzone, you’ll have to unlock it though. Thankfully, Brad Norton has a guide outlining the challenges you need to complete.

Once you’ve completed the challenges, you’ll want to use this best OTs 9 loadout to gain a competitive edge!
