Fortune’s Keep will likely replace Call of Duty: Warzone’s iconic Rebirth Island map

Activision is seemingly gearing up to replace Warzone’s beloved Rebirth Island with a new map called Fortune’s Keep. The map will reportedly come to Warzone alongside season 4, which is set to start on or around June 22. A map of the new Fortune’s Keep island can be seen below, courtesy of the official Call of Duty Twitter account.

The map was revealed in a peculiar way, as Activision sent out real-life cakes to various Call of Duty influencers, with partial images of the new map on top. Eventually, the community pieced together the map in its entirety.

For some reason @CallofDuty sent me a Cake, wonder if it has anything to do with new map that is supposed to be fast paced and close quarters.

While Activision hasn’t confirmed whether Rebirth Island will be removed in favor of the new map, it’s highly likely Fortune’s Keep will be a replacement. Historically, Warzone has never had multiple maps of the same type at any given time.

Fortune’s Keep will reportedly be more than twice the size of Rebirth Island. It will offer many more avenues for action and preserve the fast-paced gameplay style Rebirth Island players know and love. According to leaker The Ghost of Hope, Rebirth Island will be nuked to make way for Fortune’s Keep, though this has not been confirmed by Activision. It’s possible a new limited-time event will take place prior to the forthcoming season that explains why Fortune’s Keep will replace Rebirth Island.

Rebirth Island was beloved by the community, partly because it offered a much faster-paced take on the battle royale formula. It was limited to only 40 players, meaning matches were often brisk when compared to the battles in Verdansk and Caldera, which were capped at 120 players. Rebirth Island also allows players to respawn infinitely so long as at least one teammate is alive, making it much more approachable than the traditional battle royale mode. Fortune’s Keep will still utilize that respawn mechanic, though it’ll likely add a substantial number of new changes as well.

With the launch of Call of Duty's Season 4 Reloaded update, players now have access to the new MX Guardian shotgun. This fully-auto shotgun is ideal for close-quarters engagements and is best used in smaller-game modes, as it only has 15 slugs in the "clip." Below, we'll list the best MX Guardian loadouts across Warzone and Modern Warfare 2, along with how to unlock the weapon.
How to unlock the MX Guardian
Activision is doing something new with the MX Guardian, requiring players to complete a series of battle pass challenges (rather than just one) to unlock the weapon. To earn the weapon, you need to complete the following challenges to earn each Sector Reward. Keep in mind, you can only gain progress toward these challenges by taking out real players, not AI.
