Warzone Pacific Season 5 introduces the Heroes vs Villains event to commemorate the return of famous Call of Duty villains. Everything you need to know about the event, including Faction Tokens, gameplay, and free goodies, is right here.
Modern Warfare 2 is almost approaching, and Season 5 of Warzone Pacific is going out with a bang. Classic villains have returned with weaponry from Modern Warfare 2 and Advanced Warfare, launching the new Heroes vs Villains Community Event.
Here’s everything we know so far about the Heroes vs Villains event in Warzone Season 5, including gameplay, Faction Tokens, Faction Bundles, and free goodies.
Start and end dates for the Warzone Heroes vs Villains event
The Heroes vs Villains event debuted alongside the Warzone Season 5 update on August 24 and was immediately available.
It is scheduled to run for the first three weeks of the season. Concluding on September 14th. This should give gamers plenty of time to face up against the classic CoD baddies and earn all of the rewards.
Gameplay of the Warzone Heroes vs. Villains event
The Heroes vs Villains event will take over Warzone Season 5, and gamers must choose whether to support the Heroes or the Villains. Players can receive free gifts such as Calling Cards and Blueprints during this event.
Faction Tokens feature in all modes, and players must use them to help decide which team will win. You can collect either Hero or Villain Tokens, but you cannot collect both.
Explanation of Warzone Faction Tokens
During the Heroes vs Villains event, players can gain Faction Tokens by eliminating opponents and plundering Supply Boxes in any Warzone Pacific game mode.
In Operation Last Call, you can also earn them by defusing or detonating bombs. These Tokens will provide a discount on Faction Bundles at Buy Stations, as well as a discount on any other purchase from the Buy Station.
Details are few for the time being, but it appears that these Faction Bundles will function similarly to Donation Boards in Fortnite, where players pay money to vote on an item they want to return. In Warzone, it appears that players will vote on whether the Heroes or Villains should win before the end of the event.
