When does MW3 and Warzone Season 4 Reloaded start?

Based on the Battle Pass duration, MW3 and Warzone Season 4 Reloaded is expected to come out on June 26, 2024. Although the date and timing have yet to be confirmed, it will likely debut at 9 a.m. PT/11 a.m. CST/12 p.m. EST.

With the Reloaded patch, the update size should be a manageable amount of space, typically around 18 to 25 GB. A pre-load should be available the day before the launch to ensure you’re fully prepared. This way, you can dive right into the action as soon as it’s live.

What to expect in MW3 and Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

The MW3 and Warzone Season 4 roadmap gives us a glimpse into what to expect for its Reloaded release. We’ll break down each category to give you an idea of upcoming features.

MW3 Multiplayer maps

Multiplayer is set to introduce two new 6v6 core maps: Incline and Das Gross. Incline will take you high above the mountains of Urzikstan in a medium-sized map, perfect for mid-range loadouts. And if that’s not enough, Das Gross will transform Das Haus into an alien nightmare, adding a whole new twist to your gaming experience.

MW3 game modes

Havoc mode returns in Season 4 to change up the classic dynamics of Team Deathmatch. You may remember this entry from Modern Warfare 2’s Season 5 launch, where you’ll be rewarded with various modifiers throughout the match. In particular, Operators can equip the Camera Shift ability to change to third-person mode.

Another upcoming game mode will also unleash a new wave of Team Deathmatch content with Headshots Only. The challenge is pretty self-explanatory, in which players can only get kills when aiming for an Operator’s head.

MW3 Zombies Unstable Rift

Unfortunately, not much is planned for MW3 Zombies, as it only features one new challenge. Players can tackle the Unstable Rift Exclusion Zone to earn more rewards and wipe out hordes of zombies. The quest can be replayed as many times as you want, and weapon/schematic cooldowns will be refreshed each time.  

Warzone weapons and events

Warzone’s Season 4 Reloaded content has been shrouded in mystery, with a few updates garnering a ‘Redacted’ title. What we do know, however, is that rare weaponry will be available in Loot Hot Zones or Bunkers. The guns in question haven’t been revealed yet, so we’ll need to wait until more Reloaded information comes out. Plus, Bunkers will be receiving an update of their own, increasing enemy activity within its radius.

Other than the exclusive weapons, the Runaway Train Public Event will begin during Season 4 Reloaded. Use the train to get around Urzikstan quickly, but be mindful of enemy Operators who also have the same goal in mind.

New weaponry

The Superi 46 and KAR98K have already become some of the most powerful guns in Season 4. However, Reloaded will introduce new weapons that could take over their spot. This includes the Reclaimer 18 Shotgun and Sledgehammer Melee Weapon. While Reclaimer 18 was previously shown in Black Ops Cold War, the Sledgehammer is a brand-new weapon that packs a 20-pound head.

Other content will presumably arrive for Season 4 Reloaded, but for now, these are the confirmed features from the roadmap. We also can’t forget the upcoming Aftermarket Parts from Weekly Challenges, such as the Jak Volkh, Jak Thumber-656, and Jak Intimidator.
