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.
