Vanguard’s Call of Duty: Mercenaries of Fortune Season 4 Reloaded update will be released on July 27, but Sledgehammer Games has released the patch notes ahead of time. In addition to the new map, weapon, and operator added with Season 4 Reloaded, this mid-season update will include some map fixes, ranked play restrictions, and some improvements to Zombies mode.

Season 4 Reloaded will add the new multiplayer map Desolation, but Sledgehammer Games also revealed that some fixes have been made to existing maps. Made a change to Gondola to address a vulnerability that allowed bullets to penetrate unwanted surfaces near the East Bridge location. On the Paradise map, bullets will no longer penetrate the truck near the Flak Gun to prevent unwanted spawn conditions.

The mid-season update will add the Vargo-S assault rifle. However, the new weapon will arrive as a restricted weapon in Vanguard’s ranked play competitive mode. The Serpentine perk is now also restricted for use in ranked play.

For Zombies mode, some fixes have been made to the Shi No Numa map. The developer says various visual issues and zombie path fixes will be implemented on the map, and fixes an issue where Wonder Weapon parts would not appear on the map in offline mode.

Shi No Numa’s Wunderwaffe DG-2 Wondrous Weapon will have a slight buff, as the patch notes reveal an increased weapon reload speed. The update will also fix an issue where zombies would sometimes not die after being hit with the Wunderwaffe DG-2.
