The Warzone Season 4 Reloaded patch notes have arrived, as the update expands the content introduced at the beginning of the season such as the iconic Kar98k and Obsidian camo.

For those interested in all the details, here’s the full patch notes for the mid-season update.

Release date

Warzone’s Season 4 Reloaded update released on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM BST.

New weapons

Season 4 Reloaded brings two new weapons to the roster – the Reclaimer 18 Shotgun, also known as the fan-favorite SPAS-12 in other CoD titles, along with the hard-hitting Sledgehammer Melee.

The first is available to unlock through the Season 4 Battle Pass Classified Sector, while the latter is obtainable via a Weekly Challenge.

New modes

Mutation LTMs

Mutation has arrived and is available for Resurgence and Buy Back Quads.

This mode focuses on dropping the team into the destroyed Popov Power POI. Upon landing, players will acquire mutations from exposure to the toxic chemicals scattered throughout giving you certain advantages like a bioshield that blocks incoming damage to toxic clouds, mutant vision, and more.

Popov Power underwent a “catastrophic explosion.”

Redacted Weapons

Not entirely new for players who accessed the Biometrics Scanners in Rebirth Island, Redacted Weapons have been introduced in battle royale for Season 4 Reloaded. However, unlike with scanners, players can access this “impressive and rare weaponry” within hot loot zones and Bunkers.

The Redacted weapons feature “up to 10 attachments” and they are red rarity, so you can differentiate when you’re encountering one of these “powerful weapons.”
