'Eagle Child' Remembered in Last Major Update for CoD: Warzone

Halfway through Season 5, Call of Duty: Warzone developer Raven Software released another (and last) major update, while recalling „interesting” events from the game's history.

The release of the new Call of Duty is just around the corner, and with it, players will get their hands on sequel to Warzone. Probably for this reason Raven Software decided to release, as they put it, "the last big update for Call of Duty: Warzone in this era."

Call of Duty: Warzone - update size

  1. Xbox One / Xbox Series X/S: 5.8 GB
  2. PlayStation 4 / PlayStation 5: 6 GB
  3. PC: 13.9 GB (only Call of Duty: Warzone) / 14 GB (Warzone abd Modern Warfare 2) / 19.8 GB (required disk space when installing the update)

The update hits the players midway through the fifth season with an announcement on the developer's official website. The developers briefly summarized the game's development so far, noting in particular changes that improve Quality of Life, or QoL for short. Also the latest major update for the first Warzone contains a good deal of them.

The developers have also made changes to the playlists, which in the coming weeks will include the "greatest hits" among the game's existing modes (as well as two new ones). The sets will change weekly until October 20.

The "update" also includes changes to gameplay mechanics (primarily cheaper personalized equipment sets), new weapons (BP50 assault rifle and Lienna 57 light machine gun) and game balance modifications (the Rytec AMR semi-automatic sniper rifle and crossbow, among others, have been buffed). Details can be found on the game's official website.

However, there's more. The farewell nature of the update, so to speak, is highlighted by a new cinematic cutscene with Carver Butcher (which we will see right after the launch of CoD: Warzone) and free business cards immortalizing memorable events from the game's history. There are references to both "broken" weapons and the "eagle child" and the "big fish" of Verdansk.

According to earlier rumors the release of Warzone 2 was not supposed to mark the end of development of the first installment of this sub-series. However, Raven Software's announcement confirms that we shouldn't expect major new features in the original Warzone. It remains to wait for the debut of the sequel, which will hit the market on November 16.
