Call of Duty Warzone players have been eating well recently, with a new map, equipment, unique events, and Ranked for those looking to test their might. While Warzone Season 2 Reloaded is undeniably smaller than the first drop of the season, there are certainly some great new additions to dig into when it releases on Wednesday, March 6 for PlayStation and Xbox players. The most exciting arrival sailing into port is a unique – and powerful – Research Vessel POI.

Revealed in the latest Call of Duty blog, Warzone Season 2 Reloaded adds a new Research Vessel point-of-interest to Fortune’s Keep, alongside a new killstreak and field upgrade to keep things fresh in one of the best battle royale games on PS5 and Xbox.

But what makes the Research Vessel so special? After all, it’s not the first time we’ve had a mobile POI, with Urzikstan’s train being a blast for high-octane shootouts in one of the best FPS games. Well, this ship will move around the map for the first two minutes of a match before then dropping its anchor at one of several marked locations.

You’ll certainly want to climb aboard, as the Research Vessel has great equipment on board. For example, you can activate a UAV tower, bag unique and exclusive items from the “special Buy Station”, and hijack a helicopter for a speedy exit. There’s even a decontamination station that works like the new PDS Field Upgrade to offer you a safe haven from the gas. The blog also teases even more secrets that you’ll want to dig up: “Investigate the [[REDACTED]] and unlock the loot-filled [[REDACTED]].”

With this much packed into one small but multi-layered POI, the Research Vessel could very well be the best new hot drop for those looking for an early fight.

This bountiful boat isn’t the only big change on the way in one of the best multiplayer games either. Here is a full summary of what you can expect from the Warzone Season 2 Reloaded update:

  • New Research Vessel POI
  • New Bunker Buster killstreak
  • New Portable Decontamination Station Field Upgrade
  • SOA Subverter battle rifle
  • Soulrender sword

The new Bunker Buster Killstreak and Portable Decontamination Station Field Upgrade are similarly impactful when it comes to the Warzone meta. The former will rain down a precision missile to send a powerful blast through multiple floors and even leave a gas column behind, which will come in handy for clearing enemies that are bunkered down, especially in the final stages. On the other hand, the Portable Decontamination Station will temporarily create a safe zone in the gas, affording you some cheeky flanks and opportunities to outplay your opponents. In fact, you can even attach it to a vehicle for mobile gas protection.

With MW3 Season 2 Reloaded falling back on chaos over creativity when it comes to its new content, Warzone fans are arguably better off this time around. While you kick back and wait for the mid-season update, there’s no better time to find out all about this new SpongeBob Xbox that will set you back 235 Krabby Patties or how Sony could learn the wrong lessons from Helldivers 2’s soaring success. And if you’re hankering for some old-school CoD, then get caught up to speed on XDefiant’s Trophy list and what it means for the promising FPS.
