A subway system to accommodate fast-travel will be arriving in Warzone when Season 6 launches on September 29. Otherwise known as the Metro, a recent cinematic trailer for Season 6 featured Farah and Nikolai hunting Al-Qatala soldiers within the tunnels of the subway.
According to a blog post from Activision, the subway network will be fully operational and allow operators to “get around the Warzone faster than ever before between numerous points of interest.” The post cites that at the beginning of every match within Warzone, the Metro “will have a number of open stations to explore.” They all contain the same layout as part of an urban planning initiative in Verdansk at the time of construction. The post outlines how to access the subway stations and what to expect once underground.
Regarding Warzone’s inclosing gas cloud (illustrated as a shrinking circle on your HUD), Activision confirms that “a subway train will not move to a station that is under the effects of the circle collapse.”
On the subject of combat, Activision says there’ll be “no room for roughhousing onboard the Metro.” They add that the subway “will not move at all if there is any conflict on board, or between the train and the platform, so keep fighting to the platform, stairwells, and outside the station.”
The sixth season of Warzone drafts in two iconic characters from the rebooted Modern Warfare campaign: Farah and Nikolai. Together, they explore Mr. Z’s underground network and operations in Verdansk, while returning to “help long-time ally Captain Price with the ongoing conflict following the breakdown of the Armistice.”
Farah is unlockable from Tier 0 in the Season Six Battle Pass, with additional skins and awards available. Nikolai is unlockable at Tier 100 of the Season Six Battle Pass, with rewards and skins available upon completion of his Operator Missions.
