Although we don’t know exactly when this limited-time mode will make its way to Warzone Pacific or for how long it will stay, the Call of Duty blog did provide a ton of information about the new game mode.

Warzone veterans will be familiar with the Caldera Clash concept as Clash on Verdansk ’84 and Warzone Rumble are two previous modes that share similarities with the LTM.

Caldera Clash will divide Warzone lobbies into two teams of 48 players. Operators will be grouped up into quads to fit the battle royale format. The action will take off at a quick pace as players drop into Caldera with their Custom Loadout.

Weapons will not be exclusive to Vanguard, which will allow players to use any weapon from Modern Warfare to Vanguard. Much like TDM, both teams of 48 will battle it out to reach a score limit with each kill counting as one point.
