The perk meta is finally evolving…
Call of Duty‘s Season 5 arrives on August 12, and today’s intel reveals Warzone’s update might finally shake up the perk meta. The new season is expected to bring new points of interest to Verdansk, a Red Door in-game event, and all-new Warzone-exclusive perks.
Currently, Warzone only utilizes Modern Warfare’s perk selection, despite this year’s Cold War integration. Warzone’s current slate of perks are dominated by a select few: E.O.D., Ghost, Overkill, and Amped (this has been the case since launch). However, Season 5 introduces Combat Scout and Tempered, which could create some variation in perk decisions across the player base.
With Combat Scout, players will receive a burst of in-field intel, as damaging an enemy briefly highlights that opponent in bright orange and automatically pings them. Activision’s wording suggests that this orange highlight will only be visible to the player who activated the ping, as the description suggests the perk is stronger if the player can “communicate effectively to their squadmates.” This could be a gamechanger for highly efficient squads.
Players also have a Double XP weekend to look forward to starting at 6PM today (BST). The blog linked above (under Double XP) also covers some of the other new additions players can expect for the upcoming season.
