A new patch for Call of Duty: Warzone is coming today, June 2, and the update adds a new limited-time mode, makes a series of bug fixes, and changes some weapon balance values. You can see the full patch notes at the bottom of this post.
The new mode coming to Warzone is Champion of Caldera, which features 150 players on the map fighting to survive with the circle constantly closing in. Players drop in with their custom loadout, a gas mask, and one redeploy token. Additionally, kills immediately refill your health, equipment, and ammo, which Raven Software says encourages players to push through the match aggressively.
The June 2 patch also removes Recon Drones from the Underground Transit System and reduces the spawn rate of the Radar Jammer upgrade for Rebirth Island.
In terms of weapon changes, the max damage range for Vanguard’s Assault Rifle Alpha has been decreased to 27.9 million meters, from 30.1 meters. The NZ-41 weapon, meanwhile, has been nerfed slightly, too, with max damage decreasing from 40 to 37. The submachine gun H4 Blixen’s 7.62 Gorenko 36 round mags have their torso damage multiplier decreased to 13%, down from 15%.
As for bug fixes, the June 2 Warzone patch fixes a problem with the Caldera Infil cinematic that previously caused “unintended visuals.” The patch also addresses an issue with the Buy Station UI.
