Call Of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Patch Notes Include Serpentine Nerf, New Energy Weapon

The much-anticipated Season 5 update is finally here–check out the full patch notes.

It is a big day for Call of Duty: Warzone, as the battle royale game’s much-anticipated Season 5 update is launching today, August 24. This update makes a number of significant changes to Warzone, including lighting changes on Caldera, a volcanic eruption featuring lava, new items, additional Operators, and more.

In terms of its file size, this is another big update, clocking in at around 10 GB on all platforms.

To begin, Warzone’s Season 5 update adds a new battle pass with 100 tiers of additional content. This includes a new Operator, Raul Menendez, new weapons–the EX1 assault rifle energy weapon and the RA 225 submachine gun–as well as more weapon blueprints, charms, and calling cards.

A new event called Heroes vs Villains begins today, August 24, and runs through September 14. Players will collect villain or hero tokens to add to their team’s score. The winning team will get a special weapon blueprint and the opportunity to earn additional rewards.

A new mode called Operator: Last Call is launching today, too. The limited-time mode is inspired by Search and Destroy, calling on players to defuse bombs across the island, or sabotage them. Additionally, the Fortune’s Keep Resurgence mode gets an update that increases the maximum player count per match.

In terms of map changes, Caldera’s volcano has exploded and lava is running down the mountainside. The Task Force Tyrants HQ, meanwhile, has been given a “hazardous makeover” with flowing lava. Season 5 also ushers in a new gulag, Boiler Room, which is inspired by Warzone’s original gulag.

Additionally, Warzone has new weather and lighting effects that showcase smoke from the volcano and sunlight in the sky. Rebirth Island is now sunnier, too, while the map also gets a limited-time mode called Rebirth After Dark, which is a nighttime version of the map.

The Season 5 update also fixes various bugs, including collision issues and another issue that caused prestige levels to display incorrectly.

There are new items in the Season 5 update as well, including the Doomsday Station, which causes enemy AI to invade the position through a helicopter drop–this costs $10,000. Another new item is the Supply Box UAV killstreak, which marks nearby unopened supply boxes on the map for 20 seconds. A new field upgrade called Rage Serum comes with the update, too. This boosts a player’s close-quarters capabilities for 40 seconds by increasing movement speed and lung distance, among other things.

Season 5 also nerfs the Serpentine perk by removing its bonus protection to fire and explosive damage. “This should also restore the value to E.O.D. that Serpentine had cannibalized,” Activision said.

As for weapon balance changes, Activision said Season 5 is “all about widening options even further by addressing the top performers to be more in-line, along with lifting up both individual weapons and classes of weapons that are under-utilized.”

To that end, Vanguard marksman rifles now have assault rifle ammunition, while variable scopes have been adjusted to have a glint on them, reduced recoil control, and adjusted ADS time. Finally, aggressive and heavy sniper rifles will see a “large reduction,” Activision said.

This is just a small snapshot of what’s included in Warzone’s big Season 5 update. You can see the full patch notes below, as shared on Call of Duty’s website.

In other news, Warzone 2.0 is coming this year, and we’ll learn more about it during the Call of Duty Next event on September 15.

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Patch NotesBUG FIXES

    Fixed collision issues with various elements across Caldera/Fortune’s Keep allowing Players to exploit/peek/shoot through them.
    Fixed an issue that prevented the Player from equipping Armor Plates after interacting with a Buy Station.
    Fixed an issue that caused the Player to be unable to buy back a teammate when the Hardline Perk was equipped.
    Fixed an issue that caused Prestige Levels to display incorrectly in the Barracks.
    Fixed an issue that caused some Emblems and Calling Cards to be unequipped automatically.
    Fixed an issue that caused the Out of Bounds warning to get stuck on-screen in a pre-match lobby.

      Players can “Set as Favorite” via the Weapons -> Edit Loadout menus.

    Negative effects include:

      Players have a louder presenceVisible “Rage” effects on the OperatorStun & Flash Vulnerability increased by 40%This effect can be countered by the Battle Hardened perk.

QUALITY OF LIFE

    Precision Airstrikes

      Improved the Precision Airstrike danger UI notification to be more consistent with where the Airstrike target is and any nearby enemies.Implemented a fix for Precision Airstrikes sometimes not hitting near the targeted site – instead hitting the Player from behind unexpectedly

        This would occur in rare situations where a Player is positioned considerably higher above the target when launching the strike.

      Added a danger UI notification if the Player calling in a Cluster Strike or Precision Airstrike is too close to the targeted site.

In the absence of any recent changes to the Precision Airstrike behavior, we’ve still seen an uptick in Player sentiment and discussion around Precision Airstrikes lately. As such our engineering team have completed a detailed review of the system to make sure it is working as intended and as a result have made some changes to further improve and optimize the system. Note that Precision Airstrikes will continue to shoot through glass, balconies and wall-bang penetrable buildings.

    C4 Ground Loot Appearance

      Unlooted C4 will now sit horizontally

We felt that C4 and ground loot Perks were too similar in appearance and presentation, so we’ve updated C4 to make it more distinguishable visually when compared to a vertically standing ground loot Perk satchel.

    Gas Mask Auto / Manual Equip Setting

      Added functionality to the Quick Inventory Menu to allow the user to toggle the Gas Mask on/off.

        Note: This option is only available if the user opts into the manual Gas Mask toggle in the Settings Menu.

We have made many targeted Quality of Life improvements to the auto Gas Mask behavior over the course of this year, and with it being in a much better place for all of our Players – now is the time to take the next step to give Players more agency and control over their experience with a Manual Equip setting.

    Buy Station Updates

      The new Supply Box UAV Killstreak has been added to the Buy Station inventory.The Buy Station inventory will now scroll in order to display all available options.

        Loadout Drop Markers remain at the bottom of the list for ease of access because we know how important muscle memory is…
    Loadout Crate UI Selection In-SeasonSpeaking of knowing how important muscle memory is…

      Added a setting that allows the Loadout interface to remember the last Loadout that was selected.

During Season Four we made a change to optimize the Loadout interface so that the cursor selection starts at the top of the list. Whilst we heard positive feedback on this change, we also heard feedback from others that this was less optimized for their playstyle. Enjoy!

    Plane Respawn Functionality Battle Royale Modes | In-Season

      Planes will no longer respawn once they have been destroyed.This change does not apply to “respawn” Modes, i.g. Plunder.

We have made a change to Battle Royale to bring Planes inline with other vehicles. Upon review, it simply didn’t feel rewarding for Players to invest in eliminating enemy Planes only to see them respawn moments later.

PERKS

Perk Updates

Serpentine

    Fire Damage no longer decreased.Explosive Damage no longer decreased.Players must now be tac sprinting for Serpentine to be effective

      This change will arrive later this season

Serpentine continues to be a top-3 pick in the blue Perk category after Season Four Reloaded’s update. As a result, we’re removing the bonus protection to Fire and Explosive Damage. This should also restore the value to E.O.D that Serpentine had cannibalized.

Later in the season we’ll be making an additional change that causes Serpentine to only be in effect while Tactical Sprinting, instead of regular sprint.

Battle Hardened

    Stun and Flash resistance increased to 80%, up from 50% and 70% respectively.

We felt we could bring more value to Battle Hardened, especially as it is now present as a lootable ground Perk, with our target for the effects of Stun and Flash to be mitigated to less than a second with the Perk equipped. Some Players may wonder why this change is happening now, to which our reply is that there may be a surprise in-store during Season Five that warrants this change.

WEAPONS

General

Season Five is all about widening options even further by addressing the top performers to be more in-line, along with lifting up both individual Weapons and classes of Weapons that are under-utilized.

    Vanguard Marksman Rifles now have Assault Rifle Ammunition

We’ve made a large amount of changes to these Weapons and expect to make some more following Season Five launch so that these Weapons are viable, but we don’t see a repeat of the DMR 14 (BOCW) meta.

    Variable Scopes (3-6 & 4-8) have been adjusted significantly

They now have a glint on them, reduced recoil control, and adjusted ADS time. This will have a significant impact on the long-range playstyle, enabling wider options and not total domination from Vanguard Assault rifles.

    Aggressive and Heavy sniper rifles will see a large reduction

Snipers are in a good spot, but we’re not done with them yet. Combined with the above, we are expecting many viable options and variability in long-range engagements.

    EX1(VG) balancing

In Call of Duty: Warzone we’ve made some substantial differences to the EX1(VG) to better accommodate BR gameplay vs Vanguard multiplayer gameplay. The EX1(VG) has limited ammunition, increased recoil and substantially lower bullet velocity.

New Weapons

    EX1: Assault Rifle (VG)

      A prototype energy rifle effective at long range and highly customizable.Available at Battle Pass Tier 15

Weapon Adjustments

» Assault Rifles «

AS44 (VG)

    Max Damage decreased to 22, down from 24
    Kovalevskaya 615mm

    ZAC 12B Custom

      Initial Firing Recoil increased to 14%, up from 10%Movement Speed penalty decreased to -3%, up from -4%

The unquestioned strength of the AS44 (VG) was encroaching on the sub-machine gun class and less its Assault Rifle brethren. We’re making a modification to the close-range damage profile and compensating with more recoil control, enabling the Weapon to perform as a more reliable Sniper-Support.

Assault Rifle Charlie (VG)

    8mm Klauser 40 Round Mags

      Magazine Capacity increased to 50, up from 40

Cooper Carbine (VG)

    VDD 22G Padded

      Recoil Control decreased to 12.5%, down from 14%

The KG M40 (VG) continued to climb after the last round of adjustments, so we’re making a further reduction of its long-range damage profile combined with some reasonable accuracy adjustments. The result is a Weapon that should exist firmly in the camp of “Newcomer friendly” but other Weapons will be preferable for higher skilled Players.

    .30-06 38 Round Mags

      Rate of Fire increased by 50%
    Mirzoyan Custom SK2

      Movement speed penalty decreased to -2%, up from -4%

Season Four Reloaded’s newcomer struggled to find a firm identity in the long-range AR class. We’re making some all-round modifications to smoothen out the experience, while compensating for the slightly below average Torso damage profile with the most generous “Critical Box” of the Vanguard Assault Rifles, with the Neck now matching the Headshot multiplier.

» Marksman Rifles «

Vanguard Marksman Rifles have been held back by their restriction of using Sniper Ammunition. In Season Five we’re making large changes to these Weapons to now use Assault Rifle Ammunition instead, along with rebalancing the handling and damage potential of each Weapon in the class.

    Flinch Decreased on Marksman Rifles by 33%Vanguard Marksman Rifles now use Assault Rifle Ammunition.

» Sniper Rifles «

Snipers have almost climbed to the ideal healthy usage rate, and for the first time we’re seeing a good spread of different Weapons being used depending on map and situation. With the rebalancing of some of the Vanguard Optics and a further reduction of flinch, we expect this category of Weapons to be in a solid position going forward.
