A small patch has also been released on July 14 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, reworking the offensive content in the Border War skin, fixing an exploit involving picking up Warzone weapons before the infill sequence, and addressing a bug with the Rytec AMR's crosshairs.

New Microtransaction Bundles
Activision is releasing a new bundle called Hydra Slayer. It includes two weapons, the Spirit of the Beast SMG and the Soul of the Beast assault rifle. Both are "legendary"-tier weapons.
There is also the Syd Rogue Operative bundle that comes with a watch, a vehicle skin for the cargo struck, a calling card, and an emblem.
Additionally, Activision has added a new Call of Duty League Champs Pack to buy from the store. It comes with weapon blueprints to unlock the guns used by members of the Chicago Huntsmen professional team, along with their favorite calling cards and skins.
One skin that had been added to the game was controversially called "Border War." This name was changed to "Home on the Range" a short time later. It had been called out for being insensitive.
Warzone got some attention this week, too, as Activision brought back the large-scale 50v50 team deathmatch mode, Warzone Rumble, on July 17. This content is available on all platforms.
Additionally, Plunder Trios is now available, alongside the usual suspects: Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads. BR Stimulus Trios has been removed as of July 14.
Looking ahead, Warzone's rumored Season 5 update is set to introduce some major changes to the map. The map refresh is said to be part of how Activision will unveil the new Call of Duty game for 2020, which is believed to be Black Ops: Cold War.
It appears the code name for the game could be Red Door, according to a listing seen in the PlayStation serial database. This, however, remains unconfirmed.
