Warzone Round-Up: Season 4 Release Date
What’s new in the world of Warzone and when is Season 4 dropping?
Aside from the amazing Action Heroes content that dropped on Call of Duty games earlier this month, Warzone has been serving up plenty of the usual madness – from sentient trucks to a troublesome lens flare – and we’re here to take you through all of it! Plus, we’ve got the news that every operator’s been waiting for: the next season date.
Warzone Season 4
Season 3 of Warzone has been incredible, with new map changes, weapons and even an Action Hero pack that absolutely blew us away. But, like all good things, it has to end. The last shots will be fired on June 16th, so we can expect the next season to drop then. Mark your calendars, because you’re gonna be in for one hell of a ride.
Rumours and speculation around Season 4 are flying around like stray bullets. What we can be sure of is that there will be some map changes, new weapons (including a confirmed baseball bat) and possibly a new fast travel system. Nothing has been confirmed, but load your guns and rev up those Big Berthas — it’s gonna be a blast.
350,000 accounts banned
You’ve probably noticed the odd teammate with a username that makes you cringe — luckily, you’ll be seeing less of that now. Over 350,000 users have been banned for ‘toxic behaviour and racist usernames’, and apparently there’s more work to be done.
It’s a serious issue if the same amount of people who populate Iceland are being banned from the game! And they aren’t stopping anytime soon – you can expect to see this number rise thanks to new in-game filters, and a refined reporting system.
We are committed to delivering a fun gameplay experience for all of our players.— Call of Duty (@CallofDuty) May 26, 2021

Sun lens flare to be eased
Nothing’s more frustrating than preparing that perfect sniper shot and positioning yourself for the kill — only for the sun rays to blind you. Players have been complaining about the intensity of the sun lens flare in Verdansk ‘84 since Season 3 dropped, but (unlike our real-life summer) the sun just won’t stop shining.
It’s become such a problem that the lead VFX artist had to respond directly to fans on Twitter, promising to fix it — something you don’t see every day! Although turning off the sun isn’t an option, the flare will be eased. So, you snipers can breathe a sigh of relief and get back to doing what you do best.
Trucks from hell
If it wasn’t difficult enough to survive in the Warzone, you should know that sentient trucks are on the loose! The truck meta is a well-worn debate at this stage, but it turns out that just standing near one could be the death of you.
Lining up that perfect shot at the back of the truck before being randomly killed is a recipe for rage quitting. Even the likes of Dr Disrespect have massive issues with the cargo trucks, and he really lost it during his stream after a kill.
Luckily, Dr Disrespect’s rant (and the screams of dying players) did not go unheard as the devs released their new patch notes: the cargo truck spawn rate has been reduced. This means that players will be less likely to be killed by them or get their hands on one (probably for the best). For now, take our advice and avoid sitting in stationary ones or get your hands on a rocket launcher.
