Raven Software has launched an update for their battle royale Call of Duty: Warzone that officially kicks off the game’s new season. Also known as Classified Arms, Season Three offers new content, including a new operator, weapons, and locations.

The newest operator in Call of Duty: Warzone is Mateo Hernandez. Players who purchase the Season Three Battle Pass can unlock him instantly, along with two Legendary Operator skins. The first one is the “Chingon” which is an all-black outfit with a hooded skull mask and knee-length coat. The other one is the blue and orange “Madcap” skin. He uses his trusty M1916 - a semi-automatic rifle - that is lethal at any range, thanks to its powerful combination of fire rate and power.

Aside from that, two new weapons are up for grabs in Classified Arms. The M1916 just mentioned is a great rifle for experienced marksmen. The Nikita AVT, on the other hand, is a powerful and fast-firing assault rifle perfect for mid-range combat.

Players can expect new maps in Call of Duty: Warzone as well. There’s the new “Hold” Gulag that has identical hallways on the perimeter and is situated in the belly of a ship anchored off the coast of Caldera.

The Dig Site is positioned in the area between the Mine and the Ruins. Operators can find supply boxes and other items, so long as they’re willing to rummage through tents and abandoned excavation equipment.
