A new season of Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific starts today. Season 3, Classified Arms, is lighter on content at launch than past seasons, but players have something bigger to look forward to come May—Operation Monarch, a limited-time event pitting Godzilla and King Kong against each other on the beaches of Caldera. That should be interesting.

But until the two baddies duke it out, this is a somewhat minor update. There's a new battle pass as always, a few new points of interest on Caldera (including a dig site that seems to contain the forgotten skeletons of Godzilla and Kong), and the return of Iron Trials, the hardcore twist on battle royale that was popular on Warzone's original Verdansk map. Two new Vanguard weapons have also appeared—the M1916 marksman rifle and the Nikita AVT assault rifle.

As usual, the quickest way to unlock these new guns is by purchasing the battle pass and boosting through the first 20 levels, which in all likelihood features a few cosmetic bundles for each gun as well.

Raven Software is also making a significant change to Warzone's sniper rifles. Snipers have become even more popular since the health increase to 150 thanks to their ability to one-shot-kill to the head. Raven likes snipers in this role, but is reining them in a bit by decreasing the maximum one-shot-kill range for many of them.
