Season 4 begins with a Mercenaries of Fortune limited-time event that offers up rewards like weapon camps, charms, a new reticle, and more. Players can complete eight challenges on Caldera and Fortune’s Keep to earn all the rewards, plus the gold skin for the armored SUV.
Season 4 also adds a new Battle Pass with 100 tiers of content, including new weapons, calling cards, and charms. As usual, players can grind through the Battle Pass or pay real money to unlock its content faster. For Season 4, Battle Pass progression is increased by 10% for everyone.
The update also adds new modes, including Golden Plunder on Caldera. This increases the player count to 120 (from 100) and drops more cash when players die. Another new mode is Fortune’s Keep Resurgence, which is Resurgence on the new map. The player count will begin the same as Rebirth Resurgence before Activision looks to increase the player count if it’s deemed necessary based on feedback.
As for the new map, Fortune’s Keep is slightly bigger than Rebirth Island and has four main points of interest: Town, Smuggler’s Cove, Keep, and Winery. The map has new features, too, including a public event called Mercenary Cash Extraction where AI soldiers will try to airlift cash off the map. Players can try to stop them to steal the rewards. There is also a new contract called Black Market Supply Run that challenges players to find the weapons cache on the map. Then there is a new Sequencer Grenade that applies a “visual distortion effect with floating red numbers” on the victim’s screen, along with an “auditory debuff.”
The existing Caldera map also sees some changes in Season 4, including reducing its vegetation to help players have “cleaner” sightlines. Caldera also adds a new point of interest, Storage Town and introduces a new map element called Micro POIs, which are smaller points of interest that now show up on the map.
Warzone Season 4 also adds a new Armored SUV, a new EMP grenade, and a portable redeploy balloon. There are many changes to weapon balance and new bug fixes, too, along with a general improvement for rendering performance on console. You can see all the tweaks below in the complete patch notes, as shared by Raven Software.

Fortune’s Keep Resurgence | New Fortune’s Keep Mode
At launch, Fortunes Keep will have the same Player count as Rebirth Resurgence to allow Players to familiarize themselves with the new map and for us to acquire data on the similarities between time-to-action on both maps. We will then be looking to increase the Player count should the experience need an adjustment to match Rebirths pacing.
Player CountsSolos: 46Duos: 46Trios: 45Quads: 40
Most Wanted Contracts have been removed from the Plunder loot pool.
Fortune’s Keep | New Map
A brand-new Warzone Resurgence Battle Royale map featuring stunning vistas and undiscovered riches.
Slightly larger than Rebirth Island, this island features four distinct New Points of Interest:
TownCobblestone alleyways and flat rooftops to traverse across, an old fortress in the town center, a coastal path with a gazebo, and a graveyard.Smuggler’s CoveA lighthouse and a series of fishing huts above sea caves that contain stockpiles of equipment and loot.KeepThe largest landmark on the island, this medieval fortress includes winding hallways, ramparts, watchtowers, and a tunnel system.WineryAn old monastery with entrances on all sides and an underground passage, nearby a military camp.
This new map also comes with a series of brand new features to experience including…
Mercenary Cash Extraction | New Public EventA.I. units will attempt to air lift Cash. Players can choose to intercept this extraction for rewards.This Event occurs during the 2nd and 4th Circles, indicated by a signal flare and an icon on the Tac Map.Black Market Supply Run | New ContractThis contract will require Players to track down the Black Market Buy Station before a timer expires.Players will have access to unique items such as the Sequencer Grenade, the Nebula V Minigun, Foresight, a Specialist Bonus, or one of several classified Weapons.Sequencer Grenade | New Tactical EquipmentThis tactical grenade applies a visual distortion effect with floating red numbers on the victims screen, as well an auditory debuff.Players can counter this effect via the Battle Hardened Perk or using a Stim.Can only be acquired through the new Black Market Buy Station.
For Season Four, our goal is to open up the map for cleaner sightlines and reduced visual noise on the map. This “arid” approach to map direction will bring a new dynamic to the gameplay – bush camping will become a rarity rather than the norm, it brings added value to Field Upgrades like the Deployable Cover, and positional awareness and proximity to landmarks now being of high priority.
The many Gameplay changes made in Season Three, such as the Sniper rebalance, the Ghost movement change and the addition of the Serpentine Perk, were made in preparation of Season Four – knowing that improved map sightlines require adjustments in certain areas of the gameplay to keep engagements in a healthy balance.
With this being the most comprehensive set of changes to Caldera since Season One, we will continue to monitor feedback and sentiment and make additional changes where necessary.
Storage Town | New Point of InterestThe return of the fan favorite POI, Storage Town, now visible on the Tac Map.This POI will be used for a dedicated “Clash” Limited-Time Mode in Week 3 of Season Four.Micro POIs | New Map ElementsThe addition of new micro POIs to fill gaps between the major POIs to offer more looting and engagement opportunities.Mercenary Bunkers / Golden Keycards | New GameplayNew keycards found in ground loot provide access to any of the 7 mercenary bunkers hidden across the map – indicated on the Tac Map with yellow circles.“Arid” Vegetation | Updated GameplayVegetation across Caldera has been reduced by 50%.A new ‘arid’ look to the map was implemented to offer some visual variety to this season. It has the added benefits of improved performance on all platforms, better Player reads, and location awareness by opening up views to landmarks. Additionally, many plant Models have quality improvements on the Xbox One.Fighter Plane | Updated GameplayWith the positive response to the Fighter Plane returning in Operation Monarch we have re-enabled these vehicles for Battle Royale and will continue to monitor sentiment and engagement over the season.Weapon Trade Stations | New Gameplay | In-SeasonWeapon Trade Stations have been added to various locations across Caldera that allow players to trade in their weapons for high value loot.
New Gameplay Features
Armored SUV | New VehicleThis vehicle comes with a dedicated rooftop turret seat and additional seats for Operators to use their own loadout weapons.Can be acquired as a reward for completing Sabotage Contracts.[In-Season] Nitro Boost for instant but limited acceleration.EMP Grenade | New Tactical Equipment | All ModesA non-lethal tactical grenade designed primarily around counter-vehicle play that also disrupts enemy electronics.Disrupts enemy electronics and removes the HUD for 6 seconds.These effects can be reduced via the Battle Hardened Perk.Deactivates Vehicle engines for 10 seconds.Broken ATMs | New InteractablePlayers can choose to visit broken ATMs around the map for a guaranteed source of Cash.Funds periodically spawn near broken ATMs – up to a maximum cap if left unlooted.Portable Redeploy Balloon | New Deployable | All Modes | In-SeasonIt’s in the name… a portable version of the popular Redeploy Balloons.Can be placed on the ground and used until it expires or is destroyed.
QUALITY OF LIFE
Loadout Crate UI SelectionThe in-game Loadout Crate UI selection will always start at the top of the list.
We saw frequent instances of Players selecting undesired loadouts due to the cursor remembering previous selections. In order to prevent this, the cursor will always start at the top of the list. This will better respect Player muscle memory in the heat of the moment – especially during engagements.
Gas Mask AnimationThe ‘break’ animation will no longer interrupt parachuting while falling.This has been updated to align with the previous update to the ‘removal’ animation.Buy Station MenuOption added to Settings Menu allowing Players to enable the ability to remain in the Buy Station menu/UI when making multiple purchases.Player owned inventory will be indicated next to items in brackets. i.g. Gas Mask 
We wanted to enable more advanced Players the opportunity to remain in the Buy Station when making purchases, therefore knowing the inventory count of each item became an important addition.
Deployable Buy StationThis deployable will now live for longer in the gas to keep it consistent with the behavior of the in-world Buy Station emplacements.Fire Sale Public EventSelf Revive will now have a small associated cost similar to that of other items.Loadout Drop Markers will now receive a discount.Infil POI TextWe have updated both the font and color of the default Infil POI text to improve the visibility of High Value Loot Zones.Out-Of-Bounds TimerIncrease to 10 seconds, up from 5 seconds.
We felt that the previous map boundary timer wasn’t long enough for Players to recognize their error and course correct in a reasonable timeframe. We have bumped this up slightly to be more sympathetic to mistakes while making sure it cannot be exploited.
Gulag AudioSpectators now have muted footstep audio for Players who are fighting in the new “Hold” Gulag.On-Screen Hit MarkersReduced the duration of on-screen hit markers when Players are being hit to better show the most recent hit direction.Redeploy PositioningPlayers who redeploy via Gulag victory or are bought back will now spawn in close proximity to their Squad or Loadout. This was previously implemented in Season Three but had to be reverted due to an issue that has subsequently been resolved.
Ground Loot PerksWe’ve been delighted with the response to Perks in Ground Loot so have added the following as the rarest drop rate: GhostCombat ScoutDouble TimeCold BloodedAmped
Battle HardenedStun and flash resistance increased to 70%, up from 40%
With our push for stronger counterplay opportunities, there were clear gains to be had with a buff here.
Scavenger Awards an additional $500 in the scavenger pouch with each kill.HardlineProvides a 25% discount on all Buy Station items, including Loadout Drop Markers.
We felt that given the inherent nature of the Perk requiring a Player to have either found Hardline in ground loot, or to have already collected their Loadout, the value and consistency of the Perk needed to be improved.
This work was completed during Season Three Reloaded but is listed here for comprehensiveness.
Restock Perk Recharge Time increased to 30 seconds, up from 25 seconds.Radar JammerReduced drop rate chances in Rebirth Resurgence and Fortune’s Keep.
Snapshot GrenadeRadius decreased to 22 meters, down from 27.4 meters
UGM-8: Light Machine Gun (VG)High fire rate, mobile LMG that excels at creating suppressing fire and pushing enemy positions.Marco 5: Submachine Gun (VG)A high mobility submachine gun, accurate from the hip with excellent close-range stopping power.

Melee Weapons were often falling short of a straight up engagement in cqc, in addition their movement speeds were no longer competitive with some of the faster and more aggressive Weapon builds. As a result many Melee Weapons have had their swing time (the time it takes to swing the weapon in succession) and movement speed adjusted positively.

The Armaguerra 43 (VG) currently fills a jack of all trades role, where it doesn’t particularly excel at any-one thing. While this is an identity we want to enforce, we’re making some adjustments to ensure that within its Max damage range it performs more consistently and is less likely to lose a close range gunfight.

The H4 Blixen (VG) made a pretty impressive statement when it first launched and we’ve seen its adoption rate higher than any midseason weapon in Warzone’s history. This is largely due to the overall effectiveness of the weapon. This update attempts to slightly adjust its Damage profile and overall mobility dominance to weaken its mid range effectiveness, where the weapon has been performing most consistently above the competition.
