New LTM & Playlist Changes

Power Grab, the newest Limited-Time Mode, is coming to Warzone. This combines Plunder with Kill Confirmed and it promises to foster a whole lot of action-packed intensity. Here's the latest from the new batch of Warzone Patch Notes...

" What if we dialled up the intensity of Warzone to true Hollywood extremes?
" In Power Grab, you must eliminate other Operators, complete Contracts, and loot Supply Boxes around Verdansk to find Dog Tags. By collecting Dog Tags, you will work your way up a reward ladder that will give you the edge you need to win, including the personal Respawn Token.

CHAOS - You'll need to be on your toes for this new LTM
" You’ll have to use everything you’ve got to control the flag that spawns during the final circle – calling in an Exfil Helicopter. True to the BR experience, you can also choose to hunt every single other Operator until you‘re the last one standing.
" There are fewer and smaller circles. There are no loadouts. There is no Gulag. But there will be action... and plenty of it!"
