It's finally here, so what are the biggest changes in Warzone Season 6. The Warzone subway metro stations are probably the biggest game-changer but there are also new operators, guns, and an Armored Royale LTM where you drive around the map in a massive truck. Coming up we've got the biggest Warzone Season 6 changes that have arrived with the update.

1. There’s a new Metro station fast travel system

There’s a new way to get around Verdansk in the form of metro stations. There are seven, placed in a circle around the map, with trains heading in both directions to whisk you between Airport, Lozoff Pass, Verdansk Center, Downtown, Barakett Shopping District, Versansk Train Station and Torsk Bloc. Each station has gear and loot inside, as well as additional ladder access from the platform to street level if you need to make a quick getaway. It’s a free-to-use system - just hop on a train in the direction you want to go - but there are a couple of rules: the trains won’t move if there’s any fighting onboard, or between the platform and the carriages. The trains also won’t stop at a station if it’s outside the circle, so don’t worry about getting the southbound to gas town by accident.   

2. Modern Warfare’s Farah and Nikolai are joining the Warzone as operators

Some familiar faces from Modern Warfare are joining Warzone in the shape of rebel leader Farah and Captain Price’s shady Russian friend Nikolai. Farah is an instant unlock at Tier 0 in the Warzone Season 6 battle pass and comes with some additional skins to unlock by completing her operator missions. Weirdly, the Modern Warfare character that killed Farah’s father, Poloski also unlocks with her as a skin. Plus there’s the screwdriver Farah used to kill Poloski when she was a child as a tier five tactical knife unlock. That’s called Innocence Lost just to make the whole thing extra weird. Nikolai on the other hand comes with no emotional baggage but will need a little work as he unlocks at Tier 100. He also comes with additional skins you can unlock by completing his operator missions so they should keep you busy for a while. 

3. You can take to the roads with a new vehicle based LTM called Armored Royale

Armored Royale sees your team of four dropped into Verdansk and left in charge of an armored vehicle, complete with a 50 cal turret and a personal buy station to upgrade armor, add heat resistant barrels and deploy trophy systems. Matches follow the standard Warzone format, but teammates can continue to respawn as long as their armored vehicle is still in play. If you end up on the receiving end of another team's turret you can repair your ride at one of several repair stations across the map and, if you lose it, you can buy your vehicle back. Just be careful as without your truck there's no respawns.

Think juggernaut mode, but instead of a juggernaut suit, it’s an armored vehicle, and instead of other teams looking for juggernauts suits, they all have armored vehicles, and instead of buying your teammates back… you buy armored vehicles. 

4. There’s a new SP-R 208 Marksman Rifle and AS Val suppressed assault rifle to unlock

There are a couple of interesting new weapons to grab in the battle pass in the shape of a silenced assault rifle and a bolt action marksman rifle. The SP-R 208 marksman rifle unlocks at Tier 15 and trades incredibly high damage accuracy and range against low fire rate, mobility and control. The AS Val on the other hand is a really interesting Tier 31 unlock. It’s a Russian gun with a built-in suppressor and a high fire rate. It’s got big damage and mobility but that fire rate means the recoil will take some taming. 

5. You can have a pet bat! He’s called Edward

Edward is an adorable little bat you can unlock in the Battle Pass as Tier 18. And by adorable we mean he’s furry and will literally eat the eyes out of your enemies as a legendary Operator Finishing Move. Okay, it’s basically the Nevermore raven execution with more leathery wings. But who doesn’t want a pet bat that’s also weird shout out to everyone’s favourite glittery vampire turned actual Batman. It works on so many levels. 

6. There are new Wartrack music packs

If the sweet symphony of gunfire just doesn’t do it for you, several Wartrack packs have been added to the battle pass. At levels 11, 28, 44 and 64 you can unlock some new music, ranging from a Black Ops setlist for a heavy bit of nostalgia, to an EDM playlist for a heavy hit of… well, EDM.

7. Self-revives can now be found in loot

Self-revives are every Warzone players bread and butter, and you can now find that bread and butter in chests and on the ground if Verdansk. Which is more appealing than it sounds, we promise. In terms of appearance, they look the same as medical syringes (which are still in play) but rather than taking up your tactical slot, they act the same as purchasable self revives and will be usable upon getting downed.
