Call of Duty is neglecting Vanguard a little bit in favour of covering Warzone's Pacific update - which is understandable when you consider how much the game makes for Activision. However, we do know a little bit about what to expect.

Here's what Call of Duty had to say at the bottom of their blog post about the Warzone Pacific update...

" Head back here soon and expect to learn about the two free functional weapons, new Operator, Zombies content, Multiplayer modes, and two maps all coming on December 8. That includes a Pacific-inspired take on a fan-favourite classic Call of Duty map…

NEW FACES - What are they up to on Caldera?
" Later in the season, expect the two other Operators of S.O.T.F. 006, an additional core Multiplayer map and a returning small-team tactical mode, more information on what’s coming soon in Zombies, another free weapon unlocked via Challenges, and a festive celebration across both games… all of which, and much more, are locked and loaded to carry us through the holiday season and into the new year."

None of this is very detailed, but we should see the PTRS-41 Sniper Rifle added to Vanguard alongside the M1944 Hyde and Well Gun SMGs. As for the Operators, well... you can check out the cinematic below for a look at them:
