Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, Call of Duty's major multi-title, mid-season update, is set to arrive this month.

From the release of the new Salah NATO Operator last week, to the unveiling of the next chapter in the Black Ops Cold War Zombies saga in Mauer der Toten this week, the Reloaded mid-season update for Warzone continues to rapidly draw near.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded: What to Expect

While players can continue to expect official details of the Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update to drop sometime this week, here's everything we know so far that should be arriving with the mid-season patch.

New Operator: Weaver (NATO)

For starters is the launch of the third and final new Black Ops Cold War operator coming to Warzone in Season 4—Weaver (NATO). Based on his original Black Ops look, Weaver’s "dedication" compels him to drop in Verdansk even after the recent loss of his left eye. Weaver will be available in the in-game store as part of a brand-new Season 4 bundle.

New Weapons: OTs 9 (SMG), Mace (Melee)

Set to drop next in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is the OTs 9 SMG. Similar to the Nail Gun, the OTs 9 will be available for free as a challenge reward or to those who purchase it in a bundle. It appears the OTs 9 will boast "great stopping power" and a "phenomenal" fire rate, but will be "hindered" by a standard magazine capacity of 20 rounds. It will be interesting to see if the gun's other available magazine attachments will allow it to climb in the upper tiers of our Warzone SMG Tier Lists down the line.

The mid-season arrival of the medieval Mace will soon bring the number of Black Ops Cold War hand-to-hand combat tools in Warzone to eight. Just like the OTs 9, players can complete an in-game challenge to obtain the Mace for free, or pick up a bundle with a Blueprint version of it in the in-game store.

New Mode: Payload

Lastly, Warzone will be receiving its first objective-based game mode. In Payload, up to 40 players will be tasked with either escorting two caravans of vehicles through a series of checkpoints or simply sabotaging the mission. Players will be able to "build or destroy barriers and purchase buildings," as well as collect contracts around Verdansk to help their team win.
