Call of Duty Warzone launched in March 2020 with the map Verdansk, which, over the following year and a half, became a COD icon. Now, Verdansk is about to be sent to the history books as it’s removed from Call of Duty Warzone for good.
With this new era of Call of Duty comes a new map, Caldera. In complete contrast to the gloomy and gritty streets of Verdansk, Caldera is a tropical paradise, if you can call a WWII base “paradise”. From now on, as you hunt down enemies for melee combat or pick them off from afar, you’ll be surrounded by palm trees and sandy beaches as Call of Duty Warzone and Vanguard take us to the Pacific.
Call of Duty Vanguard and Warzone Pacific: Season One
Three new Operatives enter the fray as part of Warzone: Pacific, as the Vanguard factions we know from the Campaign were unable to unearth enough intel on the new Caldera map. As such, Captain Butcher needed to draft in a new team — Trident. All three Trident Operatives – Francis, Lewis and Isabella – will be available at some point during the Season, starting with Francis “Kai” Lanakila at Battle Pass Tier 0.
From there, the Call of Duty Vanguard x Warzone: Pacific Season One Battle Pass will offer an incredible number of unlockable items, whether you’re on the free Battle Pass or the full, paid track. Actually, the free Pass will offer an unprecedented number of rewards this season, including three functional Weapons, two Perks, new equipment, Weapon Blueprints and 300 COD Points.
