The new Warzone Caldera map is coming out very soon and the Call of Duty team has started providing information on what to expect.

As expected, the new Pacific map is set in the 1944 era, but will not be limited to the weapons of that era.

The first season of the new Warzone experience adds new weapons and vehicles to a map that is new to everyone.

And while gamers who own Vanguard will get access first, it won’t bring much benefit.

The exclusivity period is set to only 24 hours and will only help those who fall into Warzone a lot next week.

Learning the map takes time, and Activision is helping with that by showing gamers the map and its first sights this week.

Caldera is divided into 15 different areas, each with their own POIs and functions. The map will be the same for gamers on PlayStation, Xbox and PC platforms and is sure to contain some interesting Easter eggs and secrets.

And some big changes are being made to Warzone without there being a new map to explore.

The Ghost perk will be nerfed, meaning its usefulness will be rolled back, and gear will not be available to buy right away.

Instead, Raven Software has gamers wait for the first to drop from the sky before purchasing a new loadout drop.

Raven revealed its plans today, telling fans: “In addition to detailing those exact changes, Raven Software took a close look at various pieces of gear from nerfs to stun grenades and heart rate sensors. They also took a close look at dual-wielded melee weapons – the Kali Stick and Sai – to do justice to all the ghosts that had too short a second life during The Haunting.

“The results? Expect the aforementioned gear and weapons to be modified to be less powerful in the Warzone, and weapon shedding will no longer be the primary method of attack on the Caldera.

“Another change concerns Loadout Drop Markers – they can now only be purchased from Buy Stations after the Loadout Drop event in a match, effectively shifting their usefulness from an instant power spike to a more tactical mid-to-end game choice .

“Along with these nerfs, several Lethal and Tactical Equipment pieces will see some much-needed buffs. Most lethal gear will deal more damage, while the Snapshot Grenade will see its effective radius increase, the Stimulator will also apply a slight movement boost, and the Trap Grenade will contain rubber bullets that deal just enough damage to pester enemies.


Activision has confirmed that the release date of the new Call of Duty Warzone Caldera map has been postponed to December 8, 2021.

For Vanguard gamers, Warzone will unlock on all platforms on December 8, but the same will not be true for everyone else.

Those just playing Warzone for free will have to wait until December, with Activision on the official Call of Duty Twitter page:

“Update: Season 1 of #Vanguard and Warzone Pacific is now out on December 8. Vanguard owners have 24-hour exclusive first-play access to the Caldera map. Open access begins December 9.
