The Titan-themed event brings a brand new way to play the game, which will create exciting gameplay opportunities. Let’s get into the details of how it will work.

Kong in Warzone

What is Operation Monarch in Warzone – LTM explained?

Call of Duty Warzone’s Operation Monarch is a “special limited-time event featuring the iconic Titans of the Monsterverse, Godzilla and Kong.”

Operation Monarch will bring a brand new limited-time mode for Quads. This mode features a Resurgence ruleset and when players first drop-in, “A smaller section of Caldera will be marked for the first safe area.”

Once on the map, players must search Supply Boxes, special drops, and fallen enemies for Monarch Intel. This intel will “charge a special meter that unlocks items such as Killstreaks and Loadout Drops, along with a unique and powerful Titan Killstreak reward for filling it up completely.”

Meanwhile, Kong and Godzilla will be wreaking havoc on the map, and at the start and during the match they will enter a Titan Frenzy phase, where they become very aggressive. Dealing damage to the Titans will also reward players with Monarch Intel.

During a Titan Frenzy, players can either withdraw or attack. “The squad who deals the most damage to either Kong or Godzilla during a Titan Frenzy will automatically receive Monarch’s special S.C.R.E.A.M. Device. “

This device is essentially a killstreak that allows players to order an attack from either one of the Titans. Players can choose either Kong’s ground pound or Godzilla’s Heat Ray breath. Players can direct this attack at any point on Caldera.
