The launch of Call of Duty Warzone Season 1 has been scheduled for December 16, kicking off at around 7am GMT, in the UK.

And as you might expect from an update that’s going to integrate three games to share one progression system, it’s a biggie.

On the Warzone side of things, there’s the new Rebirth Island, as well as a new Gulag experience based on the original NukeTown map.

And among all the changes listed in the Call of Duty Warzone patch notes, there’s some good news for players sick of finding Juggernauts dropping into their games.

According to the latest updates news, developers Treyarch is removing the Juggernaut reward from Subway and Stadium Easter Eggs.

This should mean that the current Juggernaut glitch will be rendered unavailable again… until the next exploit is discovered.

As ever, it’s unclear if this will remove all the Juggernaut issues that gamers have been experiencing.

But it should at least cut down on the surge of Juggernauts dropping into the game, running the final circles.
