CoD Leak Reveals Classic Villains Supposedly Coming To Warzone And Vanguard

We’re in the middle of a Vanguard season, and the Season 4 Reloaded update is here. Vanguard Mid-Season Update brings the main Terminator crossover, the Vargo S assault rifle, and the Desolation multiplayer map. Here are the full patch notes.

Vanguard Season 4 arrived with a host of new weapons and even saw the return of the classic Shi No Numa map in Zombies, but there’s more to come with the mid-season update.

While there is a ton of new content coming to Warzone, such as Rise of the Dead mode and new portable redeploy balloons, Vanguard players are also getting new content. This update brings a new assault rifle, a new map, and various balance adjustments and bug fixes in multiplayer and Zombies.

Here’s everything we know about Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded, including the full patch notes.

Vanguard’s Season 4 Reloaded launched in 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, July 26with the new content arriving alongside Warzone Season 4 Reloaded in 9am PT / 12pm ET / 5pm BST on July 27.

However, with the update going live on all platforms, bug changes and balance adjustments should all be live.

While players received both the Frame 5 and UGM-8 at the start of Season 4, the Vargo-S Assault Rifle arrives in Season 4 Reloaded, following the already dropped Push Dagger.

New weapons can often completely change the meta, so Vanguard players will be itching to get their hands on the Cold War Vargo 52 Prototype.

We’ll have to wait and see how the Vargo-S feels, but the developers have already said that it has a “high rate of fire, steady aim through sustained fire, and a quick reload.”

Terminator Crossover Reloaded from Vanguard Season 4

After initially teasing the crossover before the start of the new season, the announcement of the Season 4 Battle Pass in Call of Duty Blog confirmed that the Terminator cosmetics will arrive after the mid-season update.

Both the T-800 and T-1000 Terminator will arrive as Store Bundles for players to purchase, though they will only be available for a limited time.

The T-800 is the iconic machine first portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the classic 1984 film. Meanwhile, the T-1000 is a shapeshifter made of liquid metal Mimetic Polyalloy, most commonly associated with Robert Patrick in T2.

New Multiplayer Map: Desolation

Based on a Pacific listening post, Desolation is a medium-sized multiplayer map with winding alleys.

Featuring a “labyrinthine village cut right into the mountainside” and a “crashed plane on fire”, this is sure to be an exciting and visually stunning map. Sledgehammer Games states that players who “can combine quick reflexes with smart moves” are likely to dominate.
