Cold War & Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

The big mid-season update for both Cold War and Warzone finally arrived on July 15th, with plenty of new content for both titles.

Cold Wars Zombies mode received the brand new Mauer Der Toten Map, something fans had been anticipating for a long time. The map includes a new main quest easter egg, a new wonder weapon, and plenty more.

Fans of Cold War Multiplayer will be pleased to know that there’s now new modes, weapon, and even the return of Black Ops 2 map, Rush. As for Warzone fans, there’s a new Sentry Gun Killstreak, a new Payload game mode and a Blueprint Blitz mode coming during the season.

Check out the Season 4 Reloaded map below to find out more!

Is There A New Weapon Meta?

So, with all of the weapon changes being introduced in Season 4 Reloaded, is there a new Warzone weapon meta?

As of writing, there isn’t one singular gun that stands out following all of the new changes. The point of Raven Software introducing so many weapon buffs and nerfs is to avoid there being a singular weapon meta in Warzone.

The July 15th update included changes to plenty of weapons, and although there doesn’t appear to be a singular weapon meta, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great guns to use since the update.
