Warzone and Call of Duty Vanguard fans will get a whole host of new content this week with the season 3 update about to launch. Season 3 of Warzone and COD Vanguard – which has been dubbed Classified Arms – officially launches on Wednesday April 27. The new season of Call of Duty and Warzone will be going live at 5pm UK time on launch day, which is 12pm eastern and 9am pacific time.

That is the exact same time and date that the Warzone season 3 update will be available to download – but the Vanguard update will be rolling before then.

The season 3 update for Call of Duty Vanguard will be going live on Tuesday April 26 at 9am pacific time, 12pm eastern and 5pm UK time.

The inbound new Call of Duty Warzone and Vanguard season has been dubbed ‘the monster of all seasons’.

And that’s because season 3 Classified Arms will be getting plenty of content as well as a limited-time event based on the MonsterVerse.

So if you’re a fan of recent films like Godzilla vs Kong or Skull Island or – of course – the Toho original Gozilla films then you’ll have plenty to look forward to.

Themed content on the horizon includes Kong and Gozilla operator skins as well the Operation Monarch event which launches on May 11.

If you’re wondering what’s coming in season 3 of Warzone and Vanguard, and are looking for some early patch notes, then here’s what you can expect…


For Operation Monarch, Operators can become more than elite: with the help of limited-time Bundles based on Godzilla, Mechagodzilla, and Kong, they can become a (human-sized version of) the ultimate superspecies.

Tracer Pack: Kong Limited Time Bundle

Ready to rule the island?

The Tracer Pack: Kong Limited Time Bundle celebrates a Titan with nearly 90 years of history with nine items, including a Legendary “Kong” Operator Skin for Wade inspired by the ruler of Skull Island.

Wield the power with three Legendary Weapon Blueprints: the “Temple of Kong” Sniper Rifle and “Skull Island Shaker” SMG which shoot jungle green tracers, as well as “Kong’s Scepter,” a variant of the Axe “Skål Crusher” melee weapon that turns it into the weapon Kong’s ancestors supposedly crafted.

The rest of the Bundle includes items based off Kong: a powerful “Gravity Inversion” Finishing Move, a “Primal Power” Spray, a “Jia’s Doll” Weapon Charm, a “Kong Roar” Animated Emblem, and a Vanguard-exclusive “Watch Your Back” Highlight Intro.

Tracer Pack: Godzilla Reactive Mastercraft Limited Time Bundle

Prepare to intimidate your opponents with the Tracer Pack: Godzilla Reactive Mastercraft Limited Time Bundle, a nine-item pack based on the beloved reptile.

In addition to the Legendary “Godzilla Ghillie” Operator Skin for Shigenori, fans of Godzilla can be like their favorite Titan with the Ultra “Breath of Godzilla” Mastercraft Weapon Blueprint. This Assault Rifle is stylized to look like a miniature version of the beast and shoots icy-blue heat ray tracers similar to that of Godzilla’s signature heat ray attack.

This Bundle also contains a Legendary “Awakened Alpha” LMG, a devastating “Gojira Stomp” Finishing Move, a “Protector of Earth” Calling Card, two Sprays, a “Godzilla Heat Ray” Animated Emblem, and a Vanguard-exclusive “Big Mistake” MVP Highlight.

Tracer Pack: Mechagodzilla Limited Time Bundle

But the Titans are not alone. In a time of monsters, humanity built its own… designed to make us the ultimate dominant species. A precision engineered Apex Predator: Mechagodzilla!

Don its armor and become the apex hunter you were born to be with the Tracer Pack: Mechagodzilla Limited Time Bundle. With this Bundle, you get the Legendary “Mechagodzilla” Operator Skin for Constanze, and nine other items, with two — the “Machine Learning” MVP Highlight and the “Rival Protocol” Highlight Intro — being Vanguard exclusive.

The rest of the items are the finest that Apex Cybernetics could forge: the Legendary “Cybernetic Destroyer” Assault Rifle, the Legendary “Neural Uplink” SMG, the deadly “Nanometal Tail Blade” melee weapon, a “Network Uptime” Watch, “Mechagodzilla Head” Charm, and its very own logo featured as the “Evolving Together” Emblem.

All three Bundles will be available during Operation Monarch — stay tuned for offiial updates on their exact release dates.

Bonus Limited-Time Bundle Incentive: Get Additional Rewards by Collecting Operation Monarch Bundles

During Operation Monarch, it might take more than one Titan to dominate Caldera.

Those who want to become the ultimate superspecies collector and purchase multiple Operation Monarch Bundles — the Kong, Godzilla, and Mechagodzilla packs — before June 16th will receive additional rewards.

Purchase any two Bundles to receive the exclusive “Godzilla vs. Kong” Weapon Sticker and the “Superspecies” Player Title. Grab all three, and you’ll receive a Legendary “Apex Phase Rifle” SMG, one that could make a colossal statement in close-quarters engagements.
