Warzone Season 5 Patch Notes: New Weapons & Perks | Screen Rant

Editor’s Note: A lawsuit has been filed against Activision Blizzard by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, which alleges the company has engaged in abuse, discrimination, and retaliation against its female employees. Activision Blizzard has denied the allegations. The full details of the Activision Blizzard lawsuit (content warning: rape, suicide, abuse, harassment) are being updated as new information becomes available.

Developer Raven Software has released Call of Duty: Warzone's Season Five patch notes for the popular battle royale game, revealing new weapons, perks, and more that have been added in the update. The new Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War content was initially set to launch on August 11, but Call of Duty Season 5 was delayed by a day hours before it was set to launch. While the postponed launch gave players one more day to catch up with their battle pass rewards, the actual reason for the delay was a last-minute issue that was discovered by Activision and developers earlier in the week.

Raven Software and Activision are particularly incentivized to continually roll out new content for Call of Duty: Warzone, as it’s still one of the most popular games in the world at the moment. This is in spite of issues like regularly discovered glitches and a documented abundance of player cheating. A recent study even revealed that Warzone is one of the biggest earners in the gaming industry when it calculated how much money Warzone makes per minute, claiming that the free-to-play battle royale could be making almost $4,000 every 60 seconds.

In a new blog post, Raven Software published the full patch notes for Season Five of Call of Duty: Warzone, which included details on the new weapons and perks the new season is introducing. The selection of new weapons are quite varied, introducing the EM2 (assault rifle), TEC-9 (SMG), a cane (melee weapon), and the Marshal, a shotgun-pistol hybrid. Two perks, Combat Scout and Tempered, have been added to the list, which ping damaged enemies and increase the effectiveness of armor, respectively. New NATO operators Stryker and Hudson will be introduced mid-season, but Warsaw Pact-aligned Kitsune is available now in the Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season Five battle pass.

The new Combat Scout and Tempered perks are also potential game changers because of how they could affect the flow of gunfights.
