Here's what we expect from Warzone's next big content drop.
The Sun Is Being Nerfed - 6th July
While a lot of focus is always on which weapons should be modified, Raven Software is expected to adjust the brightness of the sun. Many players have expressed their frustrations surrounding the sunlight blinding them when dropping into Verdansk, and the mid-season update is likely to address this particular issue.
Is The CX-9 Coming To Warzone?
On June 28th, Modern Warfare saw the return of Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage maps, much to the delight of the community.

COD 2021 Reveal To Take Place?
Alongside the rumoured Days of Summer event, Season 4 Reloaded is likely to play host to another event that will reveal COD 2021 reportedly known as WWII: Vanguard. Like other events, it's highly likely that there will be exclusive cosmetics up for grabs for players that complete the event.
Warzone Season 4 Reloaded Start Date
It's widely believed that Season 5 of Warzone will be starting at the beginning of August, giving us a rough idea as to when we can expect Season 4 Reloaded to get underway. The halfway point of Season 4 arrives in mid-July, which is when the second half of Season 4 is likely to begin.
So far, only one of the three Operators that was revealed in the Season 4 roadmap has been released, meaning it's highly likely that Salah and Weaver will arrive in the second half of the season.
There are a few bugs and exploits that continue to cause problems for players that drop into Verdansk and Rebirth Island on a regular basis. The major bug that appeared at the start of Season 4 saw players turning invisible once again due to the addition of Armored Trucks.
Since the discovery of the bug, the trucks have yet to re-appear in Warzone, and if Raven Software has managed to stop players from disappearing, there is every chance that the vehicle makes its return.
Since Raven took the helm of developing Warzone, it has done a great job at maintaining some form of balance within the huge arsenal of weapons that are available to use. Considering the dominance of Modern Warfare weaponry within the battle royale, Season 4 Reloaded would be a good time to adjust the performance of several weapons that have dominated the meta in recent months.
Despite a recent nerf to the MG 82 light machine gun, the weapon still features in the loadouts of many, meaning a more substantial nerf could be on the cards.
Coinciding with the launch of Season 4 Reloaded for Black Ops Cold War, there will be two new additions to the Warzone arsenal. The first of which is the OTs 9 submachine gun and its addition could well impact the close-range meta. The second is the Mace melee weapon which might not have the same impact on the meta. Nonetheless, the Mace could prove popular amongst players looking for something a bit more unorthodox.
Recent seasons of Warzone have seen new limited-time events complete with map changes and a range of challenges to complete. The start of Season 4 saw the launch of the Ground Fall event which revolved around the satellites that have fallen across Verdansk and there is a chance that another event could begin alongside Season 4 Reloaded.
It is rumoured that the Days of Summer event will be returning to Call of Duty and with Season 4 Reloaded starting in mid-July, it would be the ideal time to launch the new event.
