Event details

Season 3 launched on April 27 with thematic map updates to Caldera to prepare for the arrival of Godzilla and King Kong. Players can already find monster bones unearthed at the newly added Dig Site point of interest, King Kong's giant axe sticking out of the ground near the Resort, and many small references and symbols can be found related to Monarch, the mysterious scientific organization featured in 2014's Godzilla.

The Operation Monarch event will be played in a quads playlist. It will be a 60-player match with Warzone's Resurgence ruleset, which means players will get to respawn as long as another member of their squad is still alive. In addition to the lower player count, this playlist will also condense the matches by marking a smaller area of Caldera as the first safe zone. Activision has revealed how players will interact with Godzilla and King Kong, and the full details of this Operation Monarch LTM and rewards can be found here.

Godzilla and King Kong-themed operator bundles

Players looking to spend some cash can purchase fancy operator bundles featuring Godzilla and King Kong-themed skins.

The Tracer Pack: Godzilla Reactive Mastercraft bundle is already available ahead of the Operation Monarch event. The 9-item bundle is available for 2,400 CoD Points ($20). It comes with a "Godzilla Ghillie" skin, the Breath of Godzilla assault rifle, and the Awakened Alpha light machine gun, the Gojira Stomp finishing move, and more.

With the launch of Operation Monarch, King Kong will get a bundle of his own. The Tracer Pack: Kong bundle is a 9-item pack that includes three Legendary rarity weapon blueprints: the "Temple of Kong" sniper rifle and "Skull Island Shaker" submachine gun which shoot jungle green tracers, as well as a variant of the "Skål Crusher" melee weapon. The rest of Kong's bundle includes a finishing move, a spray, weapon charm, animated emblem, and a Vanguard-exclusive Highlight Intro.

Finally, the third bundle is the 9-item Tracer Pack: Mechagodzilla bundle featuring the Mechagodzilla operator skin for Constanze. The Mechagodzilla bundle comes with eight other items, including an MVP Highlight and the Highlight intro as Vanguard exclusive items.

The Kong and Mechagodzilla bundles should also be priced the same as Godzilla's bundle at 2,400 CoD Points ($20) per pack.
