Looking for the Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded release date? The ‘Reloaded’ series of updates are the mid-season offerings doled out by the Call of Duty developers, and generally continue the initial season theme while adding a host of new content outlined in the initial roadmap.

The free PC game was shaken up by the Season 3 changes, with adjustments to movement, the return of the one-shot sniper rifle, and the re-introduction of a classic CoD weapon: the Intervention. The roadmap for Warzone 2 Season 3 was hefty, and there were plenty of items on there that were marked ‘in season’, making them prime candidates to be included with Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded.

A list of potential content releases in Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded.

Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded release date speculation

The Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded release date was May 10. This marked the halfway point between the beginning of Season 3 and June 14, when the battle pass is due to end.

Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded game modes

Just before the mid-season update, the FPS game re-introduced the Plunder game mode; a loot goblin’s dream. The Plunder game mode tasks teams to scrounge the Warzone 2 map for as much cash as they can find, while simultaneously battling with the other competitors. Think of it as the most violent daytime TV gameshow imaginable.

Warzone 2 Ranked mode

Warzone 2 is going competitive with Season 3 Reloaded. Ranked play is being introduced with the mid-season update, which will see teams of three battle it out on Al Mazrah to see who’s the best squad of them all.

Each played begins at the lowest rank – Bronze – and during games will accrue SP (skill points) by eliminating enemies and securing high placements.

Here are the skill brackets for Warzone 2 Ranked Play:

  • Bronze: 0–899 SR
  • Silver: 900–2,099 SR
  • Gold: 2,100–3,599 SR
  • Platinum: 3,600–5,399 SR
  • Diamond: 5,400–7,499 SR
  • Crimson: 7,500–9,999 SR
  • Iridescent: 10,000 SR minimum
  • Top 250: 10,000+ SR

It costs SP to enter a Ranked Play match, which you will then have to claw back by performing well in the battle royale game.

Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded new weapons

Both of the new weapons that dropped with the update are handguns, but each fills a very different role. The new weapons are:

A basic looking machine pistol - the user opens the chamber to check for a round.

  • FTAC Siege: A machine pistol designed for the agile operator. The FTAC Siege is a highly customizable, fully automatic handgun that looks to be the best alternative to an SMG if you don’t plan on running the Overkill perk. With drum magazines and SMG-style stocks, it gives players a more aggressive option in the handgun pool.

A huge silver handcannon glistens in the sun.

  • GS Magna: A fully automatic Desert Eagle. Extreme close-range damage is offset by incredibly high recoil. The GS Magna shares the same attachments as the 50 GS, including the ability to carry two of these beasts at once, akimbo style.

That’s everything we know about Warzone 2 Season 3 Reloaded. Now that the new update has dropped, why not up your sniping game with the best FJX Imperium loadout, the perfect pairing to the best Warzone 2 SMG – your enemies won’t be able to cope at any range.
