Here’s everything you need to know about the DMZ changes in the Season 2 Reloaded update.

DMZ changes & bug fixes in Warzone 2 Season 2 Reloaded

For starters, DMZ players will notice new and improved infiltration and exfiltration points as the devs “added some variations” to both sets of areas. This should allow players to explore different areas of the map in Season 2 Reloaded.

Another key change consists of the possibility of looting upgraded weapons after eliminating enemy combatants. The devs explained that the chances are small, but if you’re lucky, you may be able to exfil with something interesting.

In addition, the requirements for accessing Building 21 have undergone a few tweaks that should make it easier for players to explore. As of Season 2 Reloaded, you won’t need to bring a Building 21 Access Card into the match prior to infiltration. However, the devs make it clear that “at least one Player in a squad must have a Building 21 Access Card in their Inventory to allow infiltration.”

DMZ Season 2 Reloaded update patch notes in Warzone 2


  • We have updated the usage requirements for Building 21 Access Cards:
    • Players no longer need to bring Building 21 Access Cards into the match by equipping them prior to infiltration
    • At least one Player in a squad must have a Building 21 Access Card in their Inventory to allow infiltration
    • If a Player does infil to Building 21 with an Access Card in their Backpack, they will lose that card if they do not extract with it
    • This change only impacts Building 21 Access Cards and not the Access/Key Cards for locked spaces inside Building 21, as those must still be equipped in your Backpack prior to infiltration
  • Enemy combatants in DMZ can now operate or arrive in a variety of vehicles, not just the Armored Truck
  • We have added some variations to infiltration and exfiltration points

  • Fixed several Stronghold access issues across DMZ
  • Fixed an issue where the Secure Nuclear Material contract could select a locked toolbox on Ashika Island

  • Fixed issues where certain Missions weren’t sharing progress with squadmates, including missions that have you use field upgrades and killstreaks such as Death From Above
