Season 5 brings us new game modes, guns, operators, and more.
Warzone’s season 5 is almost here, with the new act kicking off at 5 AM BST on September 9th. As a result, we are about to receive many brand new guns, operators, and events. We will take you through all of it here, diving into the roadmap, including the new weapons, maps, and more.
New Warzone game modes
According to the roadmap provided on the Call of Duty blog, we’ll be getting two new modes in Warzone: Clash and Iron Trails ’84. Here’s what we know about each.
Clash is going to be somewhat akin to a Warzone Rumble mode. Pitting 50 vs 50 in areas of Verdansk with points being scored up until a maximum of 500.
Contracts will also be available, and defeating foes will give you upgrades to help you earn more points and gun your team’s way to victory. It’s basically like a standard big ol’ deathmatch but with armour, load-outs, buy stations, and a bunch of other Warzone gear. If nothing else, it’ll be great for ranking up guns.
Iron Trials ’84
This is a strange one. Maximum health is increased, and health regen is altered. Time-to-kill values go completely out the window.
Free load-out drops are disabled, tactical and lethal equipment are banned from the Gulag, and when you get put back into Verdansk, the kit you have in the Gulag is what you’ll spawn with. It sounds like it will be a meta-shifting game mode.
New Warzone weapons
Season 5 Reloaded will be adding new weapons, so keep an eye on the best Warzone loadouts page for info on that. At present, the only information we have is on the Sai melee weapon.
According to the Call of Duty blog post, other weapons will be available. Here’s the exact wording they used.
Classified Weapons: Be certain you [[REDACTED]] as these can [[REDACTED]], critical information we hope won’t get [[REDACTED]].

That’s right, folks. Be certain you redacted.
“The Numbers” event
The broadcast stations across Verdansk will soon start sending out “The Numbers” signals. On September 21st, the event will begin, and there will be nine challenges to complete to unlock the Sai melee weapon.
The broadcast stations will also offer $2000 during the match if you interact with them, so even without the unlockable incentive, you’ll want to seek them out. Just be careful at the start of the event: they’ll be rammed for a couple of days, so be prepared for probable death.
Hudson is coming to the game as a new operator. Starring as the face of the Reloaded event, he’s looking menacing as ever. He’ll be purchasable from a store bundle.

Judge Dredd is also here, for some reason.
