The Warzone 2 Season One Reloaded update is the first mid-season update for the battle royale. In addition to the huge content drop that landed alongside the launch of the game, Infinity Ward plans on introducing even more items much to the excitement of players dropping into Al Mazrah.

Typically, Reloaded updates are significantly smaller than those that appear when a new season begins. Despite this, Season One Reloaded comes with a brand-new assault rifle, new store bundles, and an anticipated dose of buffs and nerfs to the weapon arsenal.

Warzone 2 Season One Reloaded content


The most significant piece of content arriving as part of the mid-season update is the Chimera assault rifle. Heavily resembling the Honey Badger from Call of Duty Ghosts, this particular rifle comes with an integrated suppressor and could slot into the meta depending on how it fares against other weapons in the category.

New Operators

Alongside the Chimera, Season One Reloaded will see the arrival of two new Operators to the ever-expanding roster. The first is Klaus. Very little is known about this particular character The Season One roadmap only contains a dark silhouette but we expect them to appear as part of a store bundle.

In addition to Klaus, Kyle 'Gaz' Garrick from the single-player campaign makes his way to the battle royale. Like most post-launch Operators, Gaz will come in a bundle with exclusive weapon blueprints and other cosmetic items.

Warzone 2 map changes

The arrival of Al Mazrah has proven extremely popular with the Warzone community. Featuring a vibrant colour palette and plenty of areas to explore, the new battleground is a major improvement on the Pacific island of Caldera.

It's unclear if Infinity Ward plans on adjusting parts of the map but with some players uncovering locked bunkers and manhole covers, there's a chance new areas will begin opening soon.
