LATEST - Full Patch Notes

The full Patch Notes for the next major Warzone update have arrived and interestingly-enough they're pretty short.

We know some information will be missing in order to keep the "secret Nuke event" that's due at the end of this season as secretive as it can be, but weren't we promised a new Sniper Rifle?

ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle

The new ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle is the sixth, and final, Season Two weapon we're waiting for in Warzone.

Below, we have the official description from the Call of Duty Blog on what to expect:

"Built for sharpshooters who need the power to eliminate targets at extremely long ranges, this bolt-action sniper rifle boasts a faster bullet velocity than any other weapon in its class, as well as the ability to eliminate Operators with a single shot to the head, chest, or shoulders in exchange for a slower fire rate. Its reload speeds are among the fastest in the category, allowing snipers to quickly change out magazines when faced with multiple hostile forces."

SHARPSHOOTER - Is this going to be your next main Sniper Rifle?

We know the slower Fire Rate is going to put people off of using it in Warzone, but it boasts the fastest Bullet Velocity in the class (for Black Ops Cold War Snipers anyway) and has a faster Reload Time thanks to the fact it uses a magazine.

Could this break the current meta when it gets added? Only time will tell.

Update Release Date & Time

The next Warzone update is dropping sooner than you might think.

Usually, Raven Software opt to implement their title updates on Thursdays. However, following the Season 2 Reloaded update in Black Ops Cold War, Warzone's own version of the Season 2 Reloaded update is due to drop later today!

This means you can download and install the Warzone Season 2 Reloaded update on March 30th at 23:00 PST / 02:00 EST (March 31) / 07:00 BST (March 31).

The fact that this is dropping early makes us wonder... What's going to happen on Thursday? Those Zombies are up to something.
