after a two weeks delay, The Call of Duty Warzone Pacific Season 2 release date has finally arrived. The new season marks the second chapter of Activision’s battle royale and continues the story started in Call of Duty: Vanguard. Originally slated for early February, the new season of Warzone has been pushed back to February 14th.
It’s hard to believe Call of Duty Warzone is less than two years old. Since it launched in March 2020, it has changed dramatically with new regular seasons bringing major updates to the battle royale. Like the previous season’s releases, the second season of Warzone Pacific will bring new vehicles, weapons, and map changes. Additionally, the update is set to introduce new features tied to the deadly Nebula V gas that envelops players as the battle royale counts down, forcing players to get closer.
In addition to these changes, the developer is also introducing new modes with the launch of Call of Duty Warzone Pacific Season 2. Players have already gotten a taste of what the newest map in the Warzone series has to offer, and now it looks like Caldera is about to get even more interesting.

Warzone Pacific season 2 map changes
While there hasn’t been a new Warzone map for a while, Verdask was recently placed in Caldera, Season 2 will bring changes. First, the former refinery located between the Mines and Docks in Caldera has been converted into a chemical factory that produces the deadly Nebula V gas. The layout of the area is similar to what came before, but now you’ll find the building is larger. and there are AI soldiers patrolling the environment.
Chemical weapons research labs
There are also seven new Chemical Weapons Research Labs hidden around the map. These laboratories are hidden underground and are guarded by small groups of soldiers. Players may have already found these locations in the previous season, however, they can now be located by all players thanks to the hand-drawn circles on the Tac Map. Players will be able to find important items like gas masks and even the new Nebula ammo. Go inside these locations.
armored transport trucks
Perhaps the biggest change is the new armored roaming transport trucks. If you can track down and destroy the cargo trucks, you will be rewarded with valuable equipment. Beware though, these vehicles are armed with two heavy machine gun turrets that will rip you to pieces if you get too close. They can also drop landmines, so keep an eye out for this if you’re chasing. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, the trucks call in air support when your health gets low.
However, if you manage to destroy the trucks, you will be rewarded with valuable items.
Rebirth Island map changes
Developer Treyarch has also teased substantial changes to Rebirth Island, but hasn’t yet detailed exactly what will be updated.
Warzone Pacific season 2 new vehicles
Season 2 brings a new vehicle to Caldera, Warzone’s second aerial vehicle: the bomber plane. Built for air-to-ground attacks, you’ll be able to use it to dislodge camp squads and rain hell on the battlefield.
Warzone’s fighter plane is also getting a much-needed debuff. Your reduced health will make it easier to shoot from the sky.
The second new “vehicle” to appear is the Redeploy Balloon. These balloons float high in the sky, and if you zipline to the top, you can jump off them and use your parachute to travel great distances across the map. you use it to redeploy and it’s damaged before they can follow you.
The new season will also bring two new limited-time modes to the game. The two new modes were developed by High Moon Studios and Beenox and will be available alongside the traditional modes already offered in Warzone.
New Warzone Pacific Season 2 Modes
In this new 50v50 mode, you need to level up and conquer key areas of the map in a twist on the classic team deathmatch game mode. It is an update to the Clash on Verdansk ’84 mode introduced in Season 5. In Caldera Clash, you drop into the Caldera with a squad and armed with custom gear. Although you are in a squad of four, you are in a subgroup of a team of 50. The team that has reached the kill limit or is in the lead when time runs out is declared the winner.
You also have access to three power-ups in this mode, including Contracts, Buy Stations, and the Capture of Domination and High Value Target events. There are also mini-events like Double Points Zones and Bonus Points boxes available in the mode as well.
Iron Trials of the Renaissance
The new final mode is Rebirth Iron Trials. This mode was designed by Beenox and is based on Iron Trials ’84 from previous seasons. Rebirth Iron Trials is a variant of the original battle royale formula and is built with high-level competitive players in mind. Players will enter matches using limited weapons and participate in skill-based matches with a longer kill time. The mode is expected to launch later this month, following the initial release of Season 2 Pacific.
Warzone Pacific Season 2 brings a stack of new weapons, including the KG M40 Assault Rifle and the Whitley LMG. Both are available through the Battle Pass. Later in Pacific Season 2, players will be able to get their hands on Ice Ax and Armaguerra 43 SMG.
Of course, there are also several new Nebula V-based items joining the arsenal. The first is the Nebula V ammo. This particular weapon is classified as a field upgrade. When equipped, players will be able to fire bullets with Nebula V at their enemies. This ammo is stronger than traditional ammo and emits a poisonous gas when it knocks down an enemy player.
Other Nebula V items will also join the list, including a rarer Nebula V Bomb. This briefcase bomb explodes shortly after being placed and cannot be defused or destroyed by other players. When detonated, the bomb emits Nebula V gas for several minutes, allowing players to close off entrances and block other players’ exits. To help negate the effects of the new Nebula V weaponry, you can also find and use Portable Decontamination Stations.
