Warzone Season 3 Reloaded is almost here, with the next major update to arrive on May 25. The update will bring the Serpentine Perk into the game, so here’s how the Perk works in Warzone.

On top of the new H4 Blixen SMG and the Underground Transit System, Season 3 Reloaded is set to introduce a new Perk to Warzone. The Serpentine Perk is from Vanguard and it has the potential to shake up the Perk meta in Season 3 Reloaded.

Raven’s Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins explained that the Season 3 Reloaded update would bring Vanguard’s Serpentine Perk to allow players to counter Sniper Rifles

Warzone’s Serpentine Perk reduces incoming damage from bullets, explosives, and fire by 20% while sprinting.

Warzone players are already speculating that the Serpentine Perk will be a powerful and popular choice in the Perk 1 slot. Essentially, the Perk will make players harder to kill while they’re on the move.

Although Sniper Rifles received a major change in Season 3, where only a handful can now one-shot to the head at any range, the Warzone team wants to see more counterplay, and this is where the Serpentine Perk from Vanguard comes in.

Similar to how High Alert counters Dead Silence, Raven’s Ted Timmins expects Serpentine to counter Sniper Rifles, by limiting the chances of getting killed by a long-range Sniper bullet while you’re running around Caldera.

A Call of Duty blog released on May 23 also confirmed that “a snake indicator will pop up after hitting someone who has Serpentine.” This clear feedback will allow the shooter to adjust and decide whether to continue firing or reposition.

Plus, Serpentine will arrive as ground loot in Season 3 Reloaded. Raven didn’t want players to feel like they had to give up their favorite Perk to use Serpentine. Timmins thinks that players will have the opportunity to grow to love it over time, and might give it a permanent spot in their loadout if they find unexpected success with it.
