The Season 4: Reloaded Roadmap for Warzone and BOCW is here, and it looks like we're getting some great new features in the midseason update. We'll take a closer look at the roadmap and summarize the content for you. New weapons, operators, maps, and more - what does Warzone & BOCW Season 4: Reloaded bring?

We've reported several times about Season 4: Reloaded and prepared all the important information known so far for you, but the time has finally come for the official Season 4: Reloaded roadmap. As usual, the roadmap shows us all the new content that will either be added at the start of Season 4: Reloaded or over the course of the next few weeks. But enough babble, let's get into this.

Let's start with the basics, first things first, here's the actual roadmap:

And here are the two big hitters that apply to every mode: 

New Weapon

With Season 4: Reloaded we get two new weapons, the OTs 9 submachine gun, and the mace. The OTs 9 is available from the get-go, it's a fast-firing SMG that can deal a lot of damage. And now we know that the magazine can be upgraded to 40 rounds, which means that it could also be useful in Warzone. It can be unlocked via a challenge (as yet unknown), or by simply buying the new "Inside Job" bundle.

The mace will only be available over the course of the next few weeks and can also be unlocked via a challenge or bought. This time in the "Mystic's Scepter" bundle.

New Operator

With Weaver, we're getting a new NATO operator, available during Season 4: Reloaded as part of the "Weaver Operator Bundle". Now weaver is a long–term character in the franchise, so we might see Weaver get some play, despite his model being relatively forgettable.

Warzone Season 4: Reloaded

Specifically for Warzone, we get the following treats: 

New Game Mode

In Warzone the talk of the town will be over 'Payload', a new game mode. This will be the first objective-based Warzone mode, and will consist of two 20–person teams fighting over a convoy - one team has to escort the convoy, the others have to stop it. 

New Events 

With Blueprint Blitz, a new type of event is planned for Warzone. In the future, Raven Software will start events, similar to the Double XP Weekends, where special Contraband contracts will spawn as soon as you have completed two normal contracts. These new contracts reward players with permanent blueprints that are currently no longer available in the game. The perfect opportunity to secure old blueprints. The events will be announced on Twitter.

Changes to the Red Doors

The Red Door fast travel system will get some changes, but they were not explicit. The announcement only provided this cryptic text:

Further intel suggests that these Red Doors will appear [[REDACTED]] and take you to [[REDACTED]].
As Perseus sleeper cells are still at large in Verdansk, we caution you to [[REDACTED]].

New Killstreak

The Sentry Gun is coming to Warzone. Just like in Black Ops Cold War, the turret can be deployed and automatically attacks everything in a 180 ° radius in front of you. It stops for about a minute before destroying itself. Expect to see a thousand and one twitch clips involving strange uses of the Sentry Gun.  


Yes, you read that right, in Warzone you can now give away the Battle Pass and bundles. If you've ever wanted to buy bundles for your destitute friends then you can finally do it now - or you can beg for bundles and the new Battle Pass yourself.

New Map

Another remastered Black Ops 2 map comes into play with Rush. The 6v6 map takes place in a paintball arena and promises a lot of CQC action.

New Game Mode

Capture the Flag is finally coming to BOCW. I don't think you have to explain a lot here - every team has a flag and has to steal the opponent's and bring it to their own base. CTF as you know and love it ...


With Mauer Der Toten we're getting the third turn-based zombies map after The Machine and Firebase Z. We're also getting the popular Mule Kick Perk, LT53 Kazimir grenades, and the new CRBR-S wonder weapon. The new wonder weapon is an energy pistol that can be upgraded into three different variants.
