Activision recently announced that the upcoming Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 'Last Stand' will be the last season before Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 comes out. With multiple changes and a variety of content, the free-to-play battle royale as we know it may be coming to an end.
It is currently unclear what the future of Warzone will be. However, Activision has declared that this will be discussed on September 15 during the Call of Duty: Next event.
Before that happens, Season 5 will arrive with new operators, Limited Time Modes, new weapons, and much more. This article will tell readers when Season 5 starts and what time the update will go live.
When does Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 start?
As of now, Season 4 Reloaded is live on Call of Duty, with the current Battle Pass ending on August 24. Following the conclusion of this Battle Pass, Season 5 will go live on that day at:
- 9:00 am PT
- 11:00 am CT
- 12:00 pm ET
- 5:00 pm BST
The content update for Vanguard will go live a day before that at the same time.
The new season is bringing back old antagonists from the past
The Season 5 update of Warzone and Vanguard is bringing back some of the old antagonists from the past as forthcoming operators. Al-Asad from Modern Warfare, Raul Menendez from Black Ops 2, Gabriel T. Rorke from Call of Duty: Ghosts and Seraph from Black Ops 3, will all be making a return in the upcoming season.
All new weapons, map changes, and items in Season 5
Furthermore, the new Limited Time Mode 'Operation: Last Call' will feature a Search and Destroy-type gameplay on the primary battle royale map of Warzone for the very first time.
Caldera is also changing, with the volcano around Peak coming alive and Lava Rocks crashing into the map haphazardly. Clearly, players will need to survive the dire situation before everything goes down.
With massive map changes, Season 5 will also introduce new items like the Doomsday Station, Supply Box UAV, Personal Supply Box, and much more.
The new Field Upgrade Rage Serum will give players an effective boost in close range combat with some side effects.
In the final season of Warzone and Vanguard, 5 new weapons will also be arriving:
- EX1 Energy Rifle
- RA 225 SMG
- Valois Revolver
- BP50 Assault Rifle
- Lienna 57 Assault Rifle
While there is still some time left before the update, the community has gotten more excited to see what more Call of Duty has to offer before the next saga arrives.
