Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific obtained its large season 4 update yesterday, and the game obtained the same old slew of sandbox tweaks alongside a brand new map for the Resurgence game mode.

I’m already bought on that new map, Fortune’s Keep, a Mediterranean fortress-island full with a fort, vineyard, and smuggler’s cove. It has a vibrant, colourful look, and I’m impressed by its density and gameplay prospects. You can climb up ivy-covered partitions to safe vantage factors and flank enemies, and even bask in a spot of sunshine parkour in the event you’re so inclined. The Warzone group on Reddit appears usually taken with it as nicely, with gamers particularly praising its aesthetics.

The solely draw back to Fortune Keep’s arrival, it appears, is that it has quickly changed the earlier fan favourite Warzone map, Rebirth Island. Similar to when Activision chucked Verdansk within the bin to make room for Caldera, there’s apparently solely room for one small map in Warzone’s rotation. Activision appears are of Rebirth Island’s recognition, although, and mentioned the map will periodically return and swap locations with Fortune’s Keep moving ahead.

Balance-wise, the STG44 (or AR Alpha) assault rifle has taken a success to break, muzzle velocity, and demanding multipliers. The STG is a prime decide in Vanguard, and gamers have complained about its dominance up to now, so Raven has tried to rein on this standard selection a bit.

It could also be rapidly changed by a brand new prime canine: the NZ-41 assault rifle. The NZ-41 has gotten decreased recoil and burst fireplace cooldown, and now you can hold down the hearth button to ship out successive bursts as a substitute of getting to faucet the set off every time. There’s already a fairly lively thread on the Warzone subreddit calling for nerfs, although loads of customers are declaring that it is nowhere close to the distress of the game’s DMR meta.

Season 4 is shaping as much as be a promising one for Warzone, and you may take a look at everything of Raven’s in depth patch notes right here. I’m nonetheless hung up on Fortune’s Keep—it appears extra like a Sniper Elite map than a Call of Duty one, and strikes me as a transparent knockout from Raven.
