Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 patch notes are here, and we have the new combat intel that you’re looking for. After Adler’s seismic bombs changed the Warzone map forever, he and Stitch are headed towards their final confrontation. WWII bunkers have added more close-quarters combat areas and opportunities for loot to the map, and a familiar Gulag returns. 

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 Map Changes — Fissures

Seismic bombs have left massive cracks right through Stadium and Downtown, adding more verticality to Central Verdansk than ever before. Several buildings have also collapsed, fundamentally changing the way that you’ll interact with your foes in the now dilapidated area. In the fissures are new loot chest spawns, so it’s worth exploring down there, but keep in mind that opponents will usually have the high ground advantage.

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 Map Changes — WWII Bunkers

Three World War II-era bunkers have been opened up. You’ll need to use  climbing equipment to get down there or risk taking a lot of fall damage. Like the fissures, these provide a good opportunity to get loot, but expect to find yourself in close-quarters battle encounters with very few escape routes down there.

One is near Bloc 15 and the Radar Array, there’s another north of the Airport Maintenance area, and the last one is to the north of the Silos by Boneyard.

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 Map Changes — The Gulag

If you get defeated in combat, you’ll be captured and taken to the Zordaya Prison Complex, where you can fight for your freedom. If that sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the original Gulag from all the way back in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 1. 

There are slight differences, but it is very familiar. It’s basically the Gunfight map from Modern Warfare, which also made an appearance in Call of Duty: Mobile. It’s a small, symmetrical map with three lanes full of sinks and showers you can use for cover.

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 patch notes — Loot Changes

  • The RC-XD Killstreak has been removed from all modes.
  • All loot cards have had their visual style changed.

Raven has added an option under Accessibility to change the amount of time killfeed notifications remain on screen. This is a useful change for gamers that are Hard of Vision, Hard of Hearing, or have Cognitive Overload accessibility needs. 

There are 5 options:

SettingDuration on Killfeed
OffNever.
Default10 Seconds.
