The launch of Warzone 2 saw the arrival of numerous innovations in a bid to deviate Infinity Ward’s latest battle royale offering from its predecessor. Despite the changes, players were quick to share their thoughts and ask the developer for them to be removed.

Before the launch of Season Two, Infinity Ward and Raven Software are listening to player feedback after confirming the return of the 1v1 gulag and huge looting changes designed to increase the pace of play.

Ahead of the new season, a recent leak claims a popular mechanic from the Pacific era of Warzone is making its return much to the excitement of fans dropping into the action.

Redeploy balloons returning in Warzone 2

According to leaker @MWIINTEL, redeploy balloons are on their way back which is great news for those looking for a faster way to navigate the map. Just like other Warzone 2 mechanics that carry over from the first Warzone, there are a few adjustments so they fit in with the modern setting.

Instead of miniature zeppelins floating several metres above the ground, a small drone holding a zipline will hover over the drop zone during matches. Some members of the community were quick to notice that the newly named personal redeploy drones only appear in the Ashika Island reveal trailer, leaving some wondering if they’ll make their way over to Al Mazrah.

There’s every chance personal redeploy drones will appear on the main Warzone 2 battleground as a lootable field upgrade. There’s also a high possibility of them appearing in buy stations meaning players will need to save some cash if they’re looking for a quick way to escape any sticky situations over the course of a match.

The return of the popular Caldera mechanic is bound to encourage a more aggressive style of play. With the ability to navigate the map quicker, expect more running and gunning in Season Two.
