Call Of Duty: Warzone Update Makes Big Adjustments To Battle Royale

A new update has arrived to Call of Duty: War­zone today, which brings Snoop Dogg to the game a playable char­ac­ter. The patch notes also include sev­er­al bug fix­es and adjust­ments to War­zone’s pub­lic and guar­an­teed events.

Accord­ing to Raven Soft­ware, updates have been made to make the War­zone expe­ri­ence more of a mix­up of stan­dard bat­tle royale and Sea­son 1’s Van­guard Royale mode. This update added some of Van­guard Royale’s pub­lic events into the stan­dard mode. Includ­ed is Restock, Cash Drops, Heavy Weapon Drops, and Resur­gence events.

Van­guard Royale’s guar­an­teed events have also been added in. Guar­an­teed infil events will include Heavy Weapon Crates and Plun­der Crates, while the fourth cir­cle guar­an­teed events will be Restock and Fire Sale. Raven states the added events will help play­ers restock their inven­to­ry and give improved loot oppor­tu­ni­ties in mid-to-late game.

You can check out the full patch notes below, as shared by Raven Soft­ware.

Call of Duty: Warzone Patch Notes — April 19th


Bat­tle Royale Adjustments

At the start of Sea­son Two Reloaded, we talked about our intent to merge the core and Van­guard Royale expe­ri­ences into a sin­gle, coher­ent Mode. We’ve now arrived at the final step of the merg­er, with Van­guard Royale Pub­lic Events join­ing the core BR event pool.

  • Pub­lic Events
    • Added:
      • Restock
      • Cash Drops
      • Heavy Weapon Drops
      • Resur­gence
  • Load­out Drop Events:
    • First free Load­out Drop now occurs earlier
      • This change should make for bet­ter par­i­ty in the pow­er curve.
    • Sec­ond free Load­out Drop remains in the 5th Circle
  • Guar­an­teed Events:
    • Infil:
      • Heavy Weapon Crate
      • Plun­der Crate
        Being incen­tivised to land­ing in dif­fer­ent loca­tions due to Leg­endary loot appear­ing in the ear­ly game is a good oppor­tu­ni­ty for POI rotation.
    • 4th Cir­cle:
      • Restock
      • Fire Sale
        Hav­ing mid-game events help play­ers restock their inven­to­ry and give play­ers improved loot­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties in the mid-to-late game, espe­cial­ly if return­ing from the Gulag.

As a reminder, here are some of the oth­er changes that were imple­ment­ed to core BR over the pre­vi­ous weeks:

  • Game­play
    • Default core health is now at 150 (up from 100)
  • Loot
    • Dead Silence will remain as Leg­endary ground loot
  • Con­tracts
    • Big Game Bounty”
    • Top Secret”
    • Sup­ply Drop”

We’re excit­ed to see this ini­tia­tive come to fruition and look for­ward to mon­i­tor­ing your con­tin­ued feed­back. Time to drop in!


  • Fixed col­li­sion issues with var­i­ous ele­ments across Caldera allow­ing Play­ers to exploit/peek/shoot through them.
  • Fixed an issue where the Restock and Quick Fix Perk descrip­tions did not match their cur­rent functionality.
  • Fixed an issue where some Key­board and Mouse but­ton prompts could be seen when using a Gamepad.
