Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5: Last Stand, the final season of content for Vanguard, is set to debut several map changes for the game's flagship battle royale map, Caldera.

From POI updates to the new Gulag, lighting and more, here's a breakdown of the all of the Caldera map changes in Warzone Season 5.

Warzone Season 5 Caldera Peak POI Updates

The headliner for the map changes to Caldera in Season 5 is that Peak has finally erupted, with lava now flowing down its slopes, as well as shooting out throughout the island in all modes.

Although the lava does deal damage to those standing in it, players are still encouraged to head to Peak and use its new Redeploy Balloons and still-standing gondola.

Season 5 will debut a new volcanic-themed Gulag pit that is said to be "a love letter to the original." Keeping in theme with a hotter, dustier environment, the new Caldera Gulag features a nearly symmetrical battleground with equipment and a central cargo elevator for players to weave in and around in their duels.

Last season's storm has seemingly cleared on Caldera, with sunlight now peeking through the volcano’s smoke to the island's topography and structures.

Rebirth Island is said to have new lighting changes as well, with a "warm and lush sunset casting a vibrant hue" over the map.


The Last Stand update is set to go live in Warzone on Wednesday, Aug. 24, at 12 p.m. ET.
