Call of Duty: Warzone- what to expect from season 5


The Season 5 Cinematic showed off these guns. And now that roadmap is out, players will finally get to learn what the weapons are called and what weapon type they are. The weapons coming to the game in season 5 are Tec-9, EM2, Cane, Marshal, and Flamethrower.

The tec-9 is a fast-firing SMG. The EM2 is an assault rifle that is expected to be fairly stable. The Cane is a melee weapon that players will get to use at close range. And the Marshal is a pistol that, judging from the cinematic trailer, will probably literally blow people away. There’s also a new scorestreak weapon coming this season, and it’s the aforementioned Flamethrower.


Two new perks will be added to the game in season 5. The first one is called Combat Scout and the second one Tempered. And these perks will make the gameplay more diverse and interesting. The Tempered perk will help players survive when they’re overpowered or outnumbered, while Combat Scout will provide valuable information to players.

The tuning the game has already received is for the CX-9. The gun’s headshot multiplier was increased and mid damage range decreased. Dealing more damage when you’re shooting at the head is easier now, and this might change how the game is played, going into season 5.


The two coming to the game are Clash and Rush Gulag, which is just a different and new version of Gulag.


Kitsune, Hudson, and Stryker are 3 operators players can expect to use this season. Each character looks appealing in their own way, and all of them also look intimidating and deadly.
