Kim Tae Young Operator

Kim Tae Young Operator Season 3 Reloaded

The final member of Task Force Harpy will hit Vanguard and Warzone on May 25. Her preferred weapon is the new H4 Blixen SMG, so if you’re looking to level up the weapon as fast as possible, you’ll want to fight as Kim Tae Young.

The masked figure has a reputation as a folk hero and keeper of justice. To unlock Kim Tae Young in Season 3 Reloaded, players must purchase her bundle.

H4 Blixen SMG

H4X Blixen Vanguard and Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

Vanguard players will get to test out a new SMG when the Season 3 Reloaded content goes live on May 25. The devs explained that the H4 Blixen is the ideal SMG for medium-range gunfights.

It is indeed a slow-firing SMG and the devs even compare it to the Owen Gun. If comparisons turn out to be accurate, the H4 Blixen could be just as lethal in Warzone.

If the H4 Blixen can rival the Owen Gun it could possibly take over the SMG meta, but the devs have warned of its tricky recoil pattern. Nonetheless, you can check out our guide on how to unlock the H4 Blixen if you’re eager to test the weapon after the update.

New Vanguard map Sphere

As teased in the Season 3 update, Vanguard players will receive a brand-new map to enjoy alongside Mayhem. Sphere is an underground weapons lab with multiple floors to discover.

“Operators who best navigate the various ins and outs between the upper and lower environments are likely to gain the upper hand in combat, no matter the mode.”

Vanguard’s Serpentine Perk coming to Warzone

Following the Classified Arms Reloaded update, Serpentine will be available as a Perk 1 in Warzone Pacific. The Perk is described as follows:

“Sprinting reduces incoming damage from bullets, explosives, and fire by 20%.”

This Perk is made to counter Sniper Rifles from one shot killing players at a considerable distance. If you use the Serpentine Perk and are actively on the move, even a Sniper from long-range can’t take you out before you have time to react.

Thanks to a “snake” indicator, the shooter will know when they hit someone with the Serpentine Perk equipped.

Underground Transit System in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

Undergound Transit System Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

Warzone Classified Arms Reloaded will introduce a new way to travel across Caldera. Players will soon be able to travel around the island via an underground mine cart. The method of transportation only takes a few seconds before you arrive at your next destination.

Article continues after ad

In other words, this new instant way to travel across Caldera can change the way you rotate and plan your victory. There will be 14 access points that players can discover across the map so make sure to get acquainted with the locations.

“Those in the know can use light and audio clues to figure out if an enemy is on the other side, or if the circle collapse will soon engulf the destination. As with most situations, when there is a green light, it means it’s safe. Anything else can mean potential danger, and if the indicator is off with gas going through the vents, then that means you cannot travel to that destination.”

New Warzone items

The Hold Gulag Warzone Season 3

Gulag Entry Token

The Gulag Entry Token will give players another shot at entering the Gulag.

“If you perish while holding a Gulag Entry Token, you will be sent back to the Gulag rather than needing to be bought back or be eliminated from the game.”

Redeploy Extraction Token

The Redeploy Extraction Token is an item “that grants an automatic redeploy without any need to visit the Gulag or to be bought back at a Buy Station.”

According to the devs, the Redeploy Extraction Token is quite a rare find, so don’t expect to find one every match.

Speed Boost

This item will automatically provide players with a temporary movement buff when picked up. Players who love to finesse enemies with movement should keep an eye out for the Speed Boost.

Radar Jammer

“The Radar Jammer is a Field Upgrade that scrambles the Tac Map of enemy players and prevents Killstreaks for anyone within a short radius.”

It’ll be up to players to find creative uses for this powerful Field Upgrade that could prove vital during the late game.

High Value Loot Zones

It seems Operation Monarch was used to test High Value Loot Zones across Caldera, as the feature will now appear in standard Battle Royale games. These high-risk, high-reward locations are sure to get the blood pumping.

You can check where these areas are located by opening your Tac Map or looking at your minimap. This is one way that the devs wish to give players more opportunities to access rare items and cash that will lead to a quick loadout.

Champion of Caldera LTM

Champion of Caldera will act as an LTM for Solo players. The Champion of Caldera LTM will be available on May 25 and will feature 150 player lobbies.

As the name would suggest, the goal is quite simple: claim the Champion of Caldera title as your own. Luckily, players will start the match with their Custom Loadout, a Gas Mask, and a single Redeploy Extraction Token.

If you’re looking for a high-octane and fast-paced Solo playlist then you’ll want to give Champion of Caldera a try.

“Kills in this game mode immediately refill player health, equipment, and ammo, incentivizing would-be Champions to play aggressively and eliminate the competition directly to have the best chance at victory.”

Rebirth Island Occupation Scan In-Game Event

It seems that Rebirth Island players will need to remain on high alert throughout the coming weeks with a new mechanic being introduced that can reveal your position to enemies.

“At some point during standard Rebirth Resurgence matches, Operators may be alerted of an Occupation Scan. At this point, they will need to go prone or else their position will be revealed to every other player on the Tac Map and minimap.”

The Season 3 Reloaded blog also teased a mysterious Rebirth Island event that could arrive sometime throughout Season 3, or perhaps we’ll have to wait until Season 4 for this exciting content.
