The Season 6 of Call of Duty Warzone is imminent and Activision has already announced the changes being made to the game. For instance, Warzone is getting an exciting new mode called ‘Armored Royale, which involves the use of Armored Trucks in Verdansk. In addition to this, developer Infinity Ward also released patch notes for the Season 6 update.

Before diving into the details of the patch notes, there is a playlist update for Warzone and Modern Warfare that needs attention. For Warzone, Plunder Quads is now replaced by Plunder Trios and the new Armored Royale Quads mode makes its way to the game.

As for Modern Warfare, Ground War and Gunfight Blueprint Customs are now available. Additionally Killstreak Confirmed and Face Off-Station also make their way into the game. Lastly, Season Six Mosh Pit brings Broadcast and Mialstor Tank Factory into the mix.

The patch notes are more or less focused on getting rid of the pesky bugs in the game. Take a look at the general fixes in Modern Warfare and Warzone below:

  • C4: Slight delay when performing a quick detonation. A beep will now play when quick detonation is triggered. Also reduced throw initial velocity by 30%
  • Fix for a bug where, after reviving a teammate in Survival, there will be a 5-second delay before the user is able to use their weapon again
  • A Fix for an issue where players could obtain unlimited Stopping Power rounds
  • Fix for an issue where the defending player had a long respawn timer after the HQ was taken back and all players were dead while in a Headquarters match
  • Fix for an issue where it was possible to put a molotov or grenade into a planted bomb causing it to kill the defusing player

Next, are the weapon fixes. While the changes made might seem fairly mediocre, one particular change is definitely not good news for campers. Take a look at the image below to know more.

Notice anything interesting? It looks like the Origin 12 has been nerfed for close-quarter situations. The shotgun is a camper’s dream for squad wipes and comes in handy when in a tight spot. But, it seems it will now inflict less damage to enemies while in close proximity. There is no evidence yet of this being practically implemented. Hopefully, this will be experienced in-game soon enough. As a result, it seems campers will now have to pick a different gun to get the job done.

There are also a couple of Warzone specific bug fixes that you can take a look at below:

  • Fixed a collision issue in the south corner of the Stadium
  • Fix for an issue where a fence with a white tarp over it near the Hospital was allowing players to see through it on one side
  • Fix for an issue where, on occasion, the train would appear as a white placeholder icon on the map
  • Implemented fixes to help properly track Warzone wins
  • Fixed a bug where players were unable to damage enemies with gunfire while on an ascender
  • If a player has their minimap set to not rotate, they will see inaccurate pings on the heartbeat sensor. This has been fixed
  • Fix for a rare issue where the Train’s supply boxes could vanish during longer rounds

Subway stations, new operators, and new game modes await the player in Call of Duty Warzone Season 6. Time to drop into Verdansk to see how it all plays out.
