Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 5 Reloaded Roadmap. Below is the brand-new roadmap for Season 5 Reloaded. Detailing all of the new content available to players right now. Along with what to expect down the line as the Games of Summer kicks off on August 28.

What’s new in Call Of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded?

For the mid-season update, players are able to get their hands on an all-new LMG right out of the gate. The FiNN LMG comes in as an “agile, mobile, and hostile” weapon that aims to push the weapon class further than ever before.

Rather than weighing you down as a bulky weapon. The FiNN features “exceptional full-auto accuracy while still being lightweight.” This is intended to “blur the line between Assault Rifles and LMGs,” according to the latest blog post.

You can unlock the FiNN in two ways through the Reloaded update. Either by purchasing the new ‘Mainframe” cosmetic bundle. Or simply by beating a new in-game challenge.

A new mode is also now available to Warzone players in Season 5 Reloaded. King Slayer will be available for the rest of the season. And looks to blend the battle royale experience with team deathmatch.

Every kill you secure will add to your team’s point total in this mode. If you happen to be one of the top five teams in the lobby at any point in time. Your best player will be marked as a ‘king’ for all to see. If anyone is able to take down your king. They’ll be handed a killstreak for their efforts.

You’ll need to keep an eye on the circle throughout this playlist as well. Instead of a static zone that shrinks over time. The circle will constantly be moving around the map.

What’s new in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer for Season 5 Reloaded?

Alongside the new Warzone offerings is an assortment of Modern Warfare content as well. Firstly, players can expect to load into a new Gunfight map on August 28 with the arrival of the Games of Summer.

The new battlefield takes Warzone’s recently opened stadium, offering a new space for 2v2 action. “It’s a much smaller play space in the Gunfight mode,” the blog post explained. So don’t go in expecting the exact same layout you’ve grown accustomed to in Verdansk.

Additionally, Ground War is receiving a new playlist with the Reloaded update. Available today, Ground War Reinforce shakes up the large-scale mode in a unique way. Three flags dropped towards the center of any given map.

If you happen to die during the match. There’s no respawning unless your team captures one of these flags. In order to win a round, one team will need to dominate and take control of all three flags at once.

5 Fortnite alternative mobile games you can try

Apple and Google removed popular battle royale game Fortnite from their app stores earlier this week after Epic Games launched a direct payment plan that bypasses their app store norms (30 per cent of the in-app revenue purchases).

Apple said in a statement on the issue, “Epic enabled a feature in its app which was not reviewed or approved by Apple, and they did so with the express intent of violating the App Store guidelines regarding in-app payments that apply to every developer who sells digital goods or services.”

“The open Android ecosystem lets developers distribute apps through multiple app stores. For game developers who choose to use the Play Store, we have consistent policies that are fair to developers and keep the store safe for users,” Google said in a statement.

Can I still play Fortnite on mobile devices?

Yes, you can play Fortnite if you have it installed on your device, but only if your version of the game was updated to the latest version. This is the 13.40 update, which Epic Games names in its official FAQ regarding the situation.

If you had already downloaded Fortnite previously, you should have “no issues” playing – that is, until Chapter 2 – Season 4 begins. You’ll be able to play the 13.40 version, but you won’t get to try any new content or purchase a new Battle Pass. You can play, but your ability to get to additional content will be neutered for the time being.

If you were not already on the updated version, your mobile game may not work on either iOS or Android.

Fortnite

First, let’s talk about Fortnite!

The concept of the game is similar to previous games of the genre: 100 players skydive onto an island and scavenge for gear to defend themselves from other players. Players can fight alone (Solo), with one additional player (Duos), or with a group of up to three others (Squads). As the match progresses, the playable area within the island gradually constricts, giving the players less and less room to work with. The last player or team alive wins the match.

Epic Games’ Fortnite had millions of regular gamers. If you are looking for battle royale alternatives of the Fortnite game, these five titles may interest you.

You can play Rules of Survival solo, duo, squad (four players), and fireteam (five players). Similar to PUBG, there is a waiting area and the players get dropped on the map via an airplane.

One feature that stands out in the game that the ‘Fearless Fiord’ can have as many as 300 players which makes it pretty rare in battle royale games. If you are into casual gaming with friends.

You’ll come across supercars just lying around or an advanced version of jetski to navigate the waters instead of swimming. Also, the graphics look good for a low-end game.
