The Warzone Numbers Event kicked off at 1pm ET / 6pm BST on September 21 - and it's in-game now for players to take on!

You can look at all of the mobile broadcast station focused challenges and their rewards in a new tab in-game, and start your grind toward the new Sai melee weapon.

What Is The Numbers Event?

Initially revealed fully in the Season 5 Reloaded content roadmap, the Numbers event is mostly straightforward.

CONTENT ROADMAP - The Numbers isn't being focused on just yet...

It works a lot like the 80s Action Heroes event from a couple of seasons ago, where you had to head to certain parts of the map to interact with items to tick off challenges and unlock cool rewards.

You'll get things like new blueprints, sprays, emotes and more, but nothing particularly game changing outside if of its biggest reward, the new Sai melee weapon.

Raven has released some information on the event which explains what to expect in a little more detail:

"Initially installed at the start of the season, the Mobile Broadcast Stations around Verdansk will soon begin amplifying the “Dragovich Program” tapes – A.K.A. the Numbers broadcasts – across the region.
These are the focus of The Numbers Event, an upcoming limited-time reward stream for Operators brave enough to investigate these trucks placed by Perseus. This limited-time event will begin on September 21 at 10 AM PT."

We'll confirm as soon as we can exactly where the Mobile Broadcast Stations are and what the rewards are for competing in the Numbers event.

Completing challenges during the event will lead to the first permanent item from a time-limited event in the game's history, the Sai melee weapon - so don't miss it!

Patch Notes

It is also possible that we get another set of patch notes for Warzone sometime soon after the Numbers Event launch.

Since things will be changing in Verdansk, it would make sense if Raven tie any changes in with some patch notes.

However, since we're just two weeks away from the start of Season 6 now, it's possible that they wait until then to make any significant changes. Of course, we'll be sure to keep you updated.
