Everything New In Warzone Pacific & Vanguard Season 2 (New Content & Battle Pass Tier List)

Season 2 of Warzone Pacific brings heaps of new content, including some quality of life improvements for better overall gameplay on the new map, Caldera. Here’s everything new introduced in Warzone Pacific in Season 2.

Vanguard Season Featured scaled

New Weapons

There are four new weapons introduced in season 2 of Warzone Pacific. Two of which are available for free on the launch of Season 2 as part of the Battle Pass, while the other two are available later in the season. The weapons are as follows:

KG M40

KG M40 is a new assault rifle dubbed the “workhorse assault rifle” and is available for free once you reach battle pass tier level 15.


The second free weapon is the Whitley, an LMG available for free at battle pass tier 31.

Ice Axe

The Ice Axe is a new throwable melee weapon that allows players to get one-hit kills. The Ice Axe will be released later during season 2.

Armaguerra 43

Armagueurra is the new SMG which is supposed to be released sometime during season 2. Supposedly, it has a very high rate of fire.

New Operators

There are three new Operators with one additional category of Operators called Yeti. The following are the three new Operators available to equip in Warzone Pacific and Vanguard.


Anna is part of the new Yeti group of operators and is available as an instant reward when buying the battle pass.


Thomas is also part of the new Yeti group of operators and is unlocked by purchasing a bundle featuring Thomas.


Isabella is part of the Trident and can be unlocked by purchasing a bundle featuring Isabella.

New Vehicle

There is a new aerial vehicle in Caldera that can destroy the Loadout Drops. Ever since the inception of Warzone, the loadout drops were invincible and a source of many “killer loadout” memes. However, it seems the Loadout Drops have finally met their match in the form of Bomber planes.

New Features & Field Upgrades

Following the new armored war machines and chemical weapons themes, there are new field upgrades and other related content added that might improve your gameplay.

Nebula V Ammo Type

Like how the stopping power rounds field upgrade works, you now have the Nebula V ammo type field upgrade. Nebula V bullets do not deal extra damage. However, when you down a target using these bullets, they explode, leaving a poisonous cloud of gas behind.

This can be used to strategize a lot of your gameplay aspects. For instance, if there is a squad of two or more camping in a tight spot, you can take one of them out using the Nebula V rounds. This will cause the rounds to explode and force the rest of the members out of their camping spot. This is just one of many ways you can use the Nebula V ammo type.

Portable Decontamination Station

The Portable Decontamination Station is new field equipment you can use to create a “bubble” around you when you are inside the gas. While in this bubble, you do not take any damage from the gas. This lasts for approximately 13 seconds until the portable decontamination station is destroyed, and you are vulnerable to the gas again.

If you’ve played Apex Legends, you’ll be familiar with this mechanic as it is similar to the heat shield found in Apex Legends.

Armored Transport Trucks

There are now armored transport trucks driving around the map. You can destroy these trucks and collect some rare loot. You can also find the Nebula V bomb for yourself. These trucks do defend themselves using the turrets and mines.

Redeploy Balloons

If you were among those who found Caldera “too slow” to move around, you’re in for a treat as Caldera now contains redeploy balloons. This is yet another feature similar to the red balloons from Apex Legends.

You can use these redeploy balloons to quickly launch yourself into the air and navigate to a different location. With the amount of foliage and elevations in Caldera, the redeploy balloons are sure to speed things up a bit!

New Caldera POI

Two new POIs have been added in Caldera called The Chemical Factory and the Chemical Research Labs.

Chemical Factory

Chemical Factory is its own standalone location found between the Docks and the Mines. This location has a large plant with a green gas seeping out of the plant. It is hard to miss with vibrant green gas all around the area. This location contains some of the rarest loots including the new Nebula V bomb.

Chemical Research Labs

The Chemical Research Labs are underground and can be accessed using the new open hatches spread all over Caldera.

If you haven't already noticed the yellow circles sketched on the atlas map, now's the time as these yellow circles represent the location of these underground research labs. The red dots on the map below indicate the exact location of the entrance hatches. There are seven research labs across Caldera.

Each of these locations contains high-tier and rare loot including Nebula V gas ammo type, Portal Decontamination Station, killstreaks, and the Nebula V bomb. The place is also protected by AI guards. They're not super aggressive and can be killed easily.
