Warzone Pacific Season 2 is wrapping up and fans are now casting their minds forward to Season 3. Here, we run through everything we know so far, including when to expect it, what Caldera changes will come, and what it will mean for CoD: Vanguard. 

After much excitement – mostly in the form of manifesting bug fixes – Warzone Pacific Season 2 finally dropped on February 14, bringing a host of changes to Caldera and, thankfully, a number of patches to improve Warzone’s playability and enjoyability.

Similarly, Vanguard Season 2 got underway, bringing new modes and maps to the 2021 installment. Both seasons began at the same time, as is expected to happen with Season 3 when it gets underway. But when will that be?

When does Warzone and Vanguard Season 3 start?

Known as the Classified Arms update, Pacific Season 3 is now set to release on Wednesday, April 27 – unless it’s hit by any unforeseen delays, which have happened in the past.

That is also when we expect Season 3 for Vanguard to drop, with new seasons in annual titles coinciding with Warzone content.

Normal seasons run for roughly a couple of months, but Season 2 was delayed to allow Raven and Sledgehammer time to iron out more mistakes. A similar delay for Season 3 is certainly a possibility.

What can we expect from Warzone and Vanguard Season 3?

On April 13, Call of Duty released the official trailer for Season 3, which revealed ‘Classified Arms.‘ The teaser showed that a Nebula bomb explosion has “shaken something awake, something far more powerful and fearsome than we could ever hope to comprehend.”

That has now been confirmed as a Godzilla and King Kong crossover, which will drop in game as ‘Operation Monarch’ on May 11, a couple of weeks into Season 3.

On top of that, we are expecting multiple new weapons to drop in the battle royale. At the moment we know about four: the M1916 Marksman Rifle, the Nikita AVT Assault Rifle, a Sledgehammer Melee Weapon and the H4 Blixen SMG.

Furthermore, major changes look set to come to Caldera, with a new Dig Site POI and shake-ups to the established Peak area. Finally, we’re expecting audio improvements and some hefty sniper nerfs given the Swiss K31 and Kar98k’s continued dominance.
