Warzone April 20 Update Patch Notes

Hello everyone!

We’d like to thank you for your patience while we investigated the issue related to Battle Pass XP gains. We’re happy to say that this issue has been resolved. In light of this fix and to compensate players for the prior disruption, we’ve decided to do the following:

Affected Players will be retroactively awarded XP for prior matches played

In order to receive this bonus, Players must log in to Warzone before the end of Chapter Three Season Two on April 27th at 10 AM PT

The XP may have started appearing for some Players last night, April 19th (PT)

In addition, all Players who logged in during Season Two will receive two 1-hour Double Battle Pass XP Tokens

These Tokens will be usable through the current and future Seasons

We hope you round off this Season on a fun note (maybe even a W) and look forward to seeing you in Season Three!

Warzone Rebirth Island Map Changes

Perhaps the most significant change to Warzone comes in the form of huge changes to the Rebirth Island map. Now known as Rebirth Reinforced, multiple areas of the map have changed. The Security point of interest (POI) has disappeared in favour of a new area known as Stronghold.

Alongside Stronghold, the Docks POI makes an appearance in addition to a ship close to Factory. With plenty of loot on board both ships, it's highly likely they become two of the most popular landing spots.

Warzone Season 2 Reloaded Buffs and Nerfs

As with every major update, the chances of Raven Software applying a dose of weapon balancing is inevitable. Despite nerfs to various weapons including the Bren, the ever-changing metagame has stagnated.

With the arrival of the Armaguerra 43, nerfs to some of the more popular weapons could arrive in a bid to spice up weapon selection on Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Warzone Season 2 Reloaded QoL Fixes

Raven Software has highlighted a range of quality of life (QoL) updates making their way to Warzone in the Season 2 Reloaded update. Players have the ability to dorp Gas Masks in addition to improvements to parachuting into the action.

One particular change allows you to see how many armour plates an armour satchel has before picking it up. Armour plates from scratches can also be picked up.
