Upcoming Warzone Skin 'Hypersonic' Could Become The New Roze Meta

Hypersonic could become the new Warzone Operator meta!

During the course of Warzone Season 3, there was almost the perfect balance, with no weapon meta to be seen. Guns were fair, nothing was overpowered, and everything was right with the community.

Although there was no weapon meta in the previous season, the Roze skin was still running rampant and required a big nerf as players were abusing how dark the theme of the skin was by camping in dark spots around Verdansk.

Then, Season 4 kicked off and now there are overpowered weapons once more. But on the bright side, the Roze skin finally received a nerf. I guess you can’t have it all? Wrong, turns out you can’t have anything nice, as the upcoming Hypersonic Operator Skin is definitely about to become the new Roze skin.

Warzone – Season 4

Season 4 of Warzone and Cold War kicked off on Thursday, June 17th with a brand new Battle Pass, weapons, map changes, and more.

There’s currently an ongoing ‘Ground Fall’ event taking place between both Cold War and Warzone. Players are able to complete various in-game challenges to unlock calling cards, weapon blueprints, and more.

As with most Seasons of Warzone and Cold War, there were plenty of bug fixes, weapon adjustments, and nerfs. Most importantly, the Roze skin finally received the nerf it needed.

Roze Nerf

In the official patch notes for Warzone Season 4, the following line revealed a new change to the Roze skin:

  • Roze’s Rook skin has received material updates to increase visibility.

When players jumped into the latest season, it was clear that the Roze meta may finally be over as the skin was clearly a lot brighter. Previously, players were using the dark theme of the skin to camp in visually dimmer areas of Verdansk and become practically invisible.

To counter this issue, Raven Software dramatically increased the brightness of the Roze skin. Check out the link below to see the new version of the Roze skin in action.

Upcoming Hypersonic Skin

So, with the community finally happy that the Roze skin received the nerf it desperately needed, Call of Duty decide to revert all of their hard work and design another fully black-clothed skin that will clearly have the same problem.

Check out the images below of the upcoming Hypersonic Skin for the Portnova Operator, courtesy of ElvisCOD, a notorious Call of Duty leaker.

The Hypersonic skin is yet to be released, but one fan did point out that the text in the image states “Season 2”, which could mean the skin is extremely old and was just never released. However, ElvisCOD did point out that the skin has only just appeared in the game files, meaning it could be due for release in the future.

If the Hypersonic skin is being released in the future, fans can expect it to be another ‘pay to win’ skin considering it appears to be an even darker version of Roze.

Could Hypersonic become the next Operator Skin meta in Warzone? Let us know what you think.
