Old loyalties bite the dust as our Operators form new factions in search of riches beyond their wildest dreams. Money talks in Mercenaries of Fortune, the fourth season of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone, which brings with it a host of new content, including new maps, new weapons, new operators, 100 levels of game content, Battle Pass and more.
In this winner take all arena, will you emerge victorious? Find out when Mercenaries of Fortune launches on PlayStation on June 22.
Warzone Adds Fortune’s Keep Map, Caldera Upgrades, Vehicles
A mercenary hideout built atop a peaceful city with a rich history, Fortune’s Keep is a completely original Resurgence map created by High Moon Studios. It is roughly the same size as Rebirth Island and features four distinct points of interest:
Inspired by colorful Mediterranean towns, this seaside community is riddled with cobblestone alleys and flat roofs to traverse. An ancient fortress sits in the center of the city, inviting operators into intense combat with its bell tower dominating this section of the map.
True to its name, Smuggler’s Cove is packed with supplies, including gas masks that can come in handy in the event a circle collapses. Get ready to explore twisting sea caves, grottos with sunlight shining from above, a small collection of fishing shacks, and a lighthouse.
The namesake of the island, the Fortress is a medieval fortress converted into a headquarters and hideout for mercenaries. Walk on the walls and head to the watchtowers to defend the area from invaders, but be aware that they can also easily fly over the walls using nearby Redeployable Balloons or sneak into the area using the island’s tunnel system.
A laid-back community inspired by traditional three-lane maps, The Winery offers plenty of opportunities to forage. Head to the warehouse to stock up on supplies or travel to the nearby camp, which contains a helipad and several military stores.
Fortune’s Keep also brings new challenges. Accept a black market execution contract for a chance to purchase items not available at normal buy stations, such as the Sequencer Grenade and Nebula V Machine Gun. In Cash Extraction, ambush a group of mercenaries and take their gold before they take it off the island forever.
New Caldera POI — Storage Town
Originally in Verdansk, Storage Town reaches Caldera and is located between the Mines, Airfield, Village, and Dig Site. Search for contracts and items in the sprawling complex and use its new verticality to quickly traverse the map.
Expect more than a dozen changes to other points of interest in Caldera, in part due to the appearance of new mercenary camps. Could they be looking for the supposed Mercenary Vaults?
Armored SUV (in season)
Jump into the new armored SUV when you need to travel through enemy-occupied territory. This vehicle features a driver-mounted gun, a dedicated rooftop turret seat, the ability to drop proximity mines, and a Nitro Boost for quick acceleration.
Access ATMs in Plunder game modes to purchase bags of gold that periodically appear nearby. Gold will spawn up to a maximum amount.
Disable vehicles and disrupt enemy players and AI using the EMP Grenade, a non-lethal tool that creates a short duration area of effect when it explodes. Affected players are stripped of their HUD information, while vehicles are momentarily blacked out.
New maps, Blueprint Gun Game in multiplayer
USS Texas 1945 (Launch)
A reimagining of the USS Texas map from Call of Duty: WWII, USS Texas 1945 is a medium-sized map that moved from the white cliffs of Dover to the waters around Caldera. She fights on a battleship designed for tense long-range engagements on starboard and port, and gets plenty of melee action in her many confined interior locations.
Desolation (in season)
Deploy to a Pacific listening post on this small to medium sized map set in a dense town filled with destruction. Massive mountains and a vast landscape envelop the environment as you fight around the central building and along its streamside fortifications.
New game mode: Blueprint Gun Game
Gun Game makes its Vanguard debut this season in a new variant that uses various weapon blueprints. Be the first operator to progress through all 18 weapons to win the match. Eliminate an enemy to move on to the next weapon. Melee an enemy to knock back a weapon and get the final throwing knife kill to secure victory. Custom Perks, Killstreaks, or Loadouts are not allowed.
Mercenaries of Fortune also brings a new season of ranked play. Climb the ladder as you battle against other competitors and earn new seasonal rewards for your efforts.
Shi No Numa Brings Back Classic Round Based Zombies
Following its original release in Call of Duty: World at War, the Zombies Shi No Numa map returns in the first classic round-based experience for Vanguard. Team up and survive the swamps in this updated version, featuring new quests, a wonder weapon, new information, and more. Experience the map through unique Vanguard features such as the Altar of Covenants and the Tome of Rituals.
New Battle Pass, new weapons
Mercenaries of Fortune Battle Pass offers 100 tiers of new content, including two new free weapons: Marco 5 SMG and UGM-8 LMG.
This is the perfect SMG for aggressive players who keep on the move. Best when fired at close range from the hip, it is also the first SMG in Vanguard to feature the Akimbo Proficiency. Now we’re really talking.
The UGM-8 combines mobility with firepower for operators to keep pace with their teammates while delivering suppressive fire. Use Gunsmith to further lean the weapon towards power or speed and find the balance that works for you.
Purchase the Fortune Mercenaries Battle Pass to get Captain Butcher, the Task Force’s Immortal Operator, instantly at Tier 0. The other two Immortal Operators, Callum Hendry and Ikenna Olowe, will appear later in the Shop.
Earn two more weapons, the Push Dagger and the Vargo-S Assault Rifle, by completing their in-game challenges or purchasing their corresponding Store Bundles later in the season.
