A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare teaser is being sent out in marketing emails, hinting at a new Operator, and some intriguing additions to Warzone and multiplayer.

After the vaults started opening in Call of Duty: Warzone, players have been itching to know what was coming next. Now, Infinity Ward has teased the next reveals for the battle royale and base game, with fans scrambling to decipher the cryptic messaging.

The easiest hint is that Captain John Price, who first appeared in 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, will be the game’s next available Operator for Season 4. Then comes speculation about the Verdansk map’s bunkers, and the possibility of a new weapon.

 

At one point in the video, the enlistment of a “senior Operator” is mentioned alongside a granulated picture of a man with a rugged bucket hat—fitting Price’s signature look. When asked if this indecipherable figure is a problem, the speaker responds “yes, a big one.” That notoriety again suggests that the infamous Price should be the game’s next Operator.

More interesting for Warzone fans, though, is the speculation surrounding the map’s bunkers.

 

One of the speakers details that “the opposition is moving new armaments into territory Victor,” while the map of Verdansk zooms in on a location right above Military Base—exactly where Bunker 11 lays.

Adding to the mystery, some believe that “ornaments” is said, not “armaments,” but the latter would make more sense. If this is the case, then there could be some sort of new weaponry connected to Bunker 11 in particular.

As noticed by inquisitive fans, the video’s text indicates that an immediate meeting is set to happen at Echo Charlie Hotel 2-0 and that the meeting’s passphrase is “WHIPLASH.”

When you look at Verdansk’s map, E-2 (Echo 2-0) places you near the locked bunker at Military Base, C-2 near the bunker at Dam and H-2 at the one near Quarry. All three appear to use number phones for access, suggesting that players may be able to try inputting “WHIPLASH” in order to gain access.

At the moment, no one has checked if the above is actually a means to entering further into the bunkers—but speculation continues to mount. In another instance, a player suggests that code in the trailer ties to a nuclear detonation (which would fit the “armaments” discussion).

Finally, fans have also taken the gun shown in the trailer into consideration. Some believe that it is the Galil, as last seen in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, while others think it may be the AK-74u, as currently found in Call of Duty: Mobile.

 

For now, nothing is confirmed and everything is under question—but Price feels like a strong bet to be the game’s next Operator. 

We will continue to monitor this ongoing mystery and update whenever possible.

The normal BR Solos are not available in Warzone, with Buy Back Solos and Mini Royale Solos taking its place. When will the normal solo mode come back? Well, here’s what we know.

Ever since Warzone released back in March, a number of different modes have been added alongside the normal quads, trios, and duos modes.

You’ve had things like Juggernaut Royale, Buy Back Quads, and even Zombies Royale to celebrate the spooky Halloween period. However, some players just want the normal battle royale mode that they know and love to be available.

Currently, if you just want to play the normal BR mode – where you hop in, loot, use the gulag if you die, and try to be the last player standing – you can only do so in quads, trios, and duos. It’s not available for solos, and players are asking when it’ll be coming back.

Warzone is full of different modes, not just the normal BR formula.

When will BR Solos return to Warzone?

Well, the answer to that question is… it’s up to Raven Software and Activision. They make the call on when the playlists get updated and when things are rotated in and out.

Currently, solo players can only play Buy Back solos – which takes place in Verdansk – and Mini Royale Solos – which takes place on Rebirth Island. The latter of which was rumored to only be lasting until early January, but we’ve blown past that now.

The next big update that looks to be coming to Black Ops Cold War will drop on February 4 – bringing a new Zombies map with it. That could also see major changes come to Warzone, too. However, if enough players kick up a stink about BR solos still being missing, that could push the devs to change whatever plans they’ve got and bring it back sooner rather than later.

Warzone’s solo mode has become incredibly popular since it was added.

Are Warzone solos gone for good?

Whenever something exits the playlist, some fans immediately ask if it’s been scrapped altogether. And no, that’s rarely ever the case.

While modes like Buy Back and Mini Royale add a nice change of pace, sometimes, you just have to stick with the classic battle royale formula. So, don’t worry too much about it possibly being removed forever. That’s really unlikely to be the case.


So, everything points to us seeing normal solos mode return in the near future, it’s just a matter of when Raven and Activision decide to flip the switch and bring it back.

If anything changes, we’ll keep this post updated so you’ll know when you’ll be getting your fix of normal Warzone solos next.
