Looking for details about the Warzone Pacific Season 2 update? The new season is almost here, so you might be curious what to expect from Warzone Pacific over the course of the coming weeks. Map changes are incoming, as well as the usual arsenal of new weapons, vehicles, and modes.

You might have already heard about the deadly gas, Nebula V, that's set to shake things up on Caldera, and several of the new additions this season are tied to it. We're even getting three new operators for Vanguard and Warzone who make up the fearsome Task Force Yeti. To make sure you're prepared, here's what you need to know about Warzone Pacific Season 2.

Release date

When is the Warzone Pacific Season 2 release date? 

Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 2 will deploy on February 14 at 9 am PT/5 pm GMT. The new season was initially scheduled for release at the beginning of February, but the delay was announced last month.

Warzone Pacific Season 2 new weapons 

Several new weapons are set to arrive with Season 2. The KG M40 Assault Rifle and Whitley LMG are available at launch via the battle pass, while the Ice Axe and Armaguerra 43 SMG will be available later on in Season 2. 

What's this about Nebula V? 

Nebula V is a gas that works similarly to the poisonous fumes that chase you into the circle, and anyone that gets near it should expect damage-over-time, coughing, and blurred vision. It's pretty nasty stuff, so someone inevitably decided to make use of it during combat.

Nebula V ammo is classified as a Field Upgrade. While the bullet itself isn't any more powerful than regular ammo, it emits the poisonous gas when downing opponents, effectively preventing teammates from reviving them.

A new Nebula V bomb is a rare item soon to be found on Caldera. The briefcase will explode a short time after being placed and can't be disarmed or destroyed. The gas it emits will last for a few minutes before dispersing, so it should be an effective way to seal certain areas or doorways to prevent access. That is unless you have the new Field Equipment, Portable Decontamination Station, which can help negate Nebula V's effects.

Warzone Pacific Season 2 map changes 

Nebula V gas also plays a role in the map changes in Season 2. The refinery between the Mines and the Docks on Caldera will be home to the Chemical Factory that manufactures the deadly gas.

Seven different Underground Chemical Weapon Research Labs can also be found hidden around Caldera, and finding these will offer more lucrative loot.

Speaking of loot, new Armored Transport Trucks carrying Nebula V will patrol a set path, dropping mines in their wake. They'll also attack operators that get too close and call in support from the skies if the vehicle's health drops too low. If you manage to destroy one, you can expect to nab some valuable rewards. 

New operators

Who are Task Force Yeti?

Warzone Pacific Season 2 and Vanguard are also getting a trio of new operators who make up the fearsome Task Force Yeti. Each of these soldiers brings their own particular expertise to the fight. Here are their names and a little about each of them:

  • Anna Drake: An Austrian resistance fighter who is at home in the mountains.
  • Thomas Bolt:  A Spanish-American who fought in WW1 and drove tanks in WW2.
  • Gustavo Dos Santos: A wealthy playboy turned soldier and member of "The Smoking Cobras".

Best Warzone loadout: the gear to choose
Best M4A1 Warzone loadout: top all-purpose AR builds
Best MP7 Warzone loadout: effective SMG setups
Best Grau Warzone loadout: strong AR builds
Best M13 Warzone loadout: attachments to choose
Best Kilo 101 Warzone loadout: boost the punchy AR

The Bomber Plane will arrive in Warzone's Vanguard modes and is fully capable of taking out anti-air guns and even loadout drops. Both the Bomber Plane and the existing Fighter Plane are receiving a "health" decrease as part of the upcoming update, giving players an easier time bringing them down.

Alternatively, the new Redeploy Balloon will let you reposition yourself on the map, though this will come with its own risks. Using a zipline to reach the top, you can jump and redeploy your parachute to reach your preferred area of the map. Just be aware that these balloons can be destroyed, so you may have to spend some of your cash to reinflate it. 

New modes 

Two limited-time modes will arrive in Season 2. First is Iron Trials, which is making a return to Warzone later this month—but this time, it's headed to Rebirth Island instead of the main battle royale map. 

Caldera Clash is the second mode and is essentially an evolution of Clash on Verdansk '84. It's a deathmatch of sorts where kills mean points, and you'll be able to jump in with custom loadouts from the start of Season 2.
