Warzone's latest title update isn't as big as you might think, but there's still quite a few little changes worth mentioning. Here's everything you need to know about Season 4 Reloaded and our countdown to launch.

LATEST - Season 4 Reloaded Is Out Right Now

Both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone have now been updated with the new Season 4 Reloaded content. You might not see any Playlist Changes, as these happen later at 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST, but everything else should be there.

The OTs 9 SMG is now available to unlock and the weapon balancing changes should all be live in-game. Good luck!


Warzone Season 4 Reloaded Release Date & Time

The update will release at the same time as Warzone updates usually do.

The Warzone Season 4 Reloaded release time is set for 12am ET / 5am BST on July 15, on all platforms.

New Weapons & Operators


Not many new features are coming to Warzone as part of the Season 4 Reloaded update, but you can expect a new weapon and Operator.

The newest weapon is an SMG called the OTs 9 and it can be unlocked via a challenge or bundle in the store. Its official description reads:

Full-auto submachine gun. Impressive firepower at close range with good visibility when firing. Reliable recoil control with smaller magazine size.

Then, the new Operator is the one we were promised at the start of Season 4. Their name is Weaver and you can see what they look like below.

Weaver will be part of a new bundle that will arrive alongside the new update.


New Modes & Other Features

Elsewhere, Warzone is getting its first ever objective based mode, called Payload.

"Payload pits two teams of 20 players against each other in a race against time for crucial intel, as these vehicles carry satellite parts that could help shift the balance of the war between Perseus and NATO."

On top of that, an automated Sentry Gun is arriving in Verdansk as a killstreak.


"Similar to how it operates in Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare®, the Sentry Gun scans in a near-180-degree radius in front of itself to seek and destroy enemies. It executes this kill pattern for at least a minute after deployment before it collapses via harmless explosion."

It seems like it will only drop as a rare item from Red Door loot rooms and will not be purchasable from Buy Stations, but we'll confirm once we know for sure.

Update Download Size & Preload Details

The download size of the Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update has already been confirmed, and it's not as big as past updates, the sizes are:

  • PlayStation 5: 8.9 GB
  • PlayStation 4: 8.9 GB
  • Xbox Series X / Xbox Series S: 9.2 GB
  • Xbox One: 9.2 GB
  • PC: 9.2 GB (Warzone Only) / 10.4 GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare)

However, if you're on console, you'll probably need a lot more free space than that, because of reasons we're still not clear on. Expect to need upwards of 100GB of free space on your system to install the update successfully.

Some PlayStation players can preload the update ahead of time, but everyone else will have to wait until that time to get it downloaded and installed.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded Patch Notes

The full patch notes for Warzone's Season 4 Reloaded update haven't been released by Raven quite yet. The patch notes for Black Ops Cold War are out already, but they're not relevant for the battle royale.

They should be released on Wednesday afternoon, just a few hours before the release of the update, so keep an eye out here for them.

We'll get weapon balance changes, info about the new items, and some other bug fixes. Hopefully we will, anyway!
