How to Pre-load Warzone Season 6

What’s new in Warzone Season 6

Map Updates: There are new fissures in Stadium and Downtown. New and mysterious bunkers from the World War II era are also being added to the game.

Regiment Roster System: The new season will feature a new clan system (Regiment Roster) to help players find likeminded players and play together. After 6th October, you will only be able to view your Regiment Roster and inspect players. You will not be able to create, manage, switch, or invite people to your Regiment, use Regiment Tags, or receive Happy Hour rewards after this date.

If you are in multiple Regiments, you have until October 5 to ensure that you are “Active” in the one you wish to stay in through Vanguard’s launch on November 5.

Redesigned Gulag: An older 1v1 combat arena is being re-introduced but no additional details have been revealed yet. Season Six’s Gulag is inspired by the original trio of 1v1 maps within the Verdansk of 2019, and based on the Modern Warfare Gunfight map variant. This takes place in an undisclosed and sectioned-off level of the deep Zordaya Prison Complex.
