Debuting with the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5: Last Stand is Operation: Last Call, a limited-time mode (LTM) that's said to be inspired by Search and Destroy.

For those wondering just what it is and if it's any good, here's a breakdown of Operation: Last Call LTM in Call of Duty: Warzone.

What is Operation: Last Call in Call of Duty: Warzone?

Operation: Last Call is said to be a new limited-time Warzone mode inspired by Search and Destroy that takes place on the full map of Caldera.

Players can choose to defend Caldera by defusing bombs around the island, or sabotage it by detonating the explosives at the designated bomb sites.

The LTM also has its own in-game public event where Lava Rocks crash into Caldera and take out players. Check the Volcano Meter for a visual representation of current activity, also indicated by the increasingly smoky atmosphere throughout the match.

Here are the special rules used in the Operation: Last Call playlist:

  • Each lobby supports 80 players divided into 20 teams of four
  • Players start with their Loadout
  • It’s raining giant lava rocks all over the island
  • The Resurgence respawn system is activated but players cannot get wiped
  • Villains need to find the bombs around the map, deliver them to designated Bomb Sites and prime them, which begins a 60-second countdown until they explode
  • Heroes need to defuse Villain bombs before they explode, which can be quickened by acquiring Defuse Kits (e.g. completing Contracts, purchasing at Buy Stations) and using them
  • As bombs are detonated or defused, more will appear on the island
  • As bombs are detonated and the Lava Rock Public Event activates, the atmosphere will become increasingly smoke-filled and obscure
  • The first squad to either plant or defuse 10 bombs wins the match

Ultimately, if you or your friends are looking to play something less serious than the norm, the Operation: Last Call mode seems like a must-try.
