New Warzone radiation zones are turning players into zombies as part of the nuke events leading up to Season 3 of Warzone. The radiation zones are active where the zombies started at the beginning of Season 2, showing the zones in red around Shipwreck and Prison. This follows the announcement by Activision saying that Verdansk has reached 100% contamination.

The zones extend quite a bite outwards from their original locations, putting their edge just at the border of Port and Farmland. The bunker located near Prison is now inaccessible as a living player, as the radiation will kill you before you get anywhere close to opening it.

If you're playing any mode other than solos, a death by radiation will turn you into a zombie with similar attributes to those featured in the limited-time mode in fall of 2020. Once again, players-turned-zombies will be able to run faster, jump higher, and take no fall damage. Special abilities of the zombies include Charged Jump, Gas Grenade and EMP Blast.

It's unclear whether or not these Radiation Zones will expand or rotate in the days leading up to Season 3, but many players are still expecting a large-scale nuclear event to destroy Verdansk. Leaks throughout Season 2 have shown that Verdansk will be a 1980s version of itself in Season 3. Supposedly, changes to a number of locations like Airport, Dam, and various other locations across Verdansk will occur.
