Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty : Warzone 2 Season 3 will bring many new features and a new Gulag to the popular battle royale mode. Season 3 introduces a new mode for the popular Resurgence mode that will take advantage of features that will soon be added to Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
Activision revealed several changes coming to Warzone 2 ahead of revealing its Season 3 roadmap. For example, the company confirmed that Season 3 will see major tweaks to Warzone 2’s anti-cheat system in preparation for the launch of ranked play. Warzone 2 players can look forward to new content and features being added across all modes this month.
In a Call of Duty blog post dedicated to Season 3, Activision confirmed that Warzone 2 players will be entering the new Gulag on the Al Mazrah map when the season kicks off next week. This new Gulag is called the Blacksite, and Activision confirmed that it’s not the same as the Black Site super stronghold found in the battle royale. Blacksite is a rectangular gulag with several interior and exterior routes, and serves as a training ground for operators seeking to return to combat. In Modern Combat 2, Blacksite will be available as a multiplayer map in Gunfight. In addition to the reveal of the Blacksite Gulag, Activision also revealed several features for Massive Resurgence and Warzone 2 Season 3.
Players will be able to experience Massive Resurgence in Al Mazrah in Warzone 2 Season 3 via the Redeploy Drone feature. Massive Resurgence is essentially the same fast-paced mode as Resurgence, but the player count has been increased to 150. While playing Massive Resurgence, players will be able to traverse the map faster by using Redeploy Drones. When Season 3 launches, all Battle Royale modes will include the Tough Armor Dropship and Drone Tower features, allowing players to individually enhance their armor and gain intel on enemy locations.
More new features and items will be coming to Warzone 2 in mid-season updates, including the Gulag Entry Kit. In Season 3 and beyond, Warzone 2 players killed in the Gulag have a second chance to redeploy by using the Gulag Entry Kit. If successful, the player can immediately redeploy without asking teammates to redeploy. Perk Package Items and Deployable Buy Stations will also be introduced in the Season 3 Mid-Season Update.
The long-awaited Season 3 update for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 will be released on April 12th. Until then, Call of Duty fans can enjoy the latest playlist update for Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 Reloaded, which includes an improved version of Shipment 24/7.
Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
