One of Warzone’s Operator bundles, Antonov, seems to have been released as broken upon its arrival in Call of Duty: Warzone as players can’t see all of the character’s accessories.
Operator bundles and skins are a way to keep lobbies looking fresh and give players different options and customization choices for each game. Aside from eye-catching Operators like John McClane and Rambo, or veterans like Captain Price and the unreleased Soap skin, there are always new characters to be immortalized in CoD.
Antonov is a bundle that was released back in May 2021, and players are now starting to learn that the bundle’s main Operator skin is actually bugged.
The Antonov bundle is a Radioactive-themed bundle featuring Antonov in a fearsome-looking Radiation Suit with additional items of a similar vein.
One of the coolest aspects of the bundle, outside of the Operator skin, is the ‘Radiation Detector’ Legendary Watch. It’s basically a mini-Geiger counter that is supposed to sit perfectly on Antonov’s left wrist, but it doesn’t seem to have been well thought out.
Reddit user Large_Dr_Pepper snapped a pic of the watch in action, and it showed the problematic nature of the suit in conjunction with the watch.
The thickness of the suit’s gloves and suit actually end up covering up most of the watch, leaving it barely visible for the user.

The original poster had this to say about the bundle and watch: “At the bare minimum they should make the watch compatible with the skin it comes with. I spent $20 on this, I want to see my tiny Geiger counter.”
Given that the Antonov bundle has been available to purchase since Season 3, it does seem like a bit of an oversight, but one that can be easily fixed.

New Warzone Combat Scout & Tempered perks coming in Season 5
Season 5 of Warzone will see the new Combat Scout and Tempered perks become available for players to use, and we have all of the details covered.
Perks are a cornerstone of the Call of Duty: Warzone experience but have not undergone any major changes since the game’s release. However, Season 5 of Warzone will see the new Combat Scout and Tempered perks make their arrival in the Call of Duty battle royale.
Perks are essential for success in Call of Duty: Warzone as they provide you with beneficial bonuses that can be the difference between losing or winning.
However, the perks for the battle royale have not undergone any major changes. The same ones have dominated the meta throughout the life of Warzone, causing players to call for a major rework of the perk system.
However, Season 5 will be making a big change to the perk system in the Call of Duty battle royale with the arrival of the new Combat Scout and Tempered perks, bringing new gameplay opportunities for players to experience, and we have everything you need to know about them covered.
New Warzone Season 5 Perks
Combat Scout Perk
The first of the new perks is called Combat Scout, and this one provides a treasure trove of information to players when they damage an enemy.
Players who have the Combat Scout perk equipped will cause an enemy they damage to be highlighted in orange briefly and automatically be pinged.
Players who use the Combat Scout perk will ensure they know where enemies they have damaged are going and can avoid getting ambushed when rushing after them to finish the kill.
Armor is another staple of the Call of Duty battle royale, and the new Tempered perk will make some dramatic changes to armor values in Warzone.
Players who have the Tempered perk equipped will see that their armor plates will be able to absorb 75 points of damage instead of the standard 50, which means players will only need two plates of armor to be full health and will be able to heal faster and get back into fights quicker.
However, players who use the Tempered perk will only be able to have two armor plates equipped at one time and will have to dedicate their perk 2 slot to Tempered to take advantage of its armor reinforcement bonus.
There is no doubt that the arrival of the new Warzone Combat Scout and Tempered perks will make some exciting changes to the meta in the Call of Duty battle royale during Season 5.

New Cold War and Warzone weapons teased in Season 5 cinematic
Clever CoD fans have spotted several new weapons teased in the Warzone and Cold War Season 5 cinematic, which are likely to arrive soon.
In the latest cinematic trailer, eagle-eyed Call of Duty fans have spotted the likely candidates for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5’s weapons.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 4 brought some extremely powerful weapons to the mix, such as the C58 Assault Rifle and Nail Gun. Season 5 has finally been revealed, and players are keen to learn what new weapons Treyarch and Raven Software will bring.
The leaked Season 5 artwork revealed the TEC-9 Pistol would be coming to Call of Duty for the first time, but eagle-eyed fans have spotted several other weapons that have been teased.
Here’s every teased weapon from Season 5’s cinematic trailer.
Fans first spotted the TEC-9 Pistol when the key art for Warzone and Cold War Season 5 was leaked. The brand-new Operator was seen wielding the automatic pistol Akimbo in both the artwork and now the teaser trailer.
This pistol has never been seen in Call of Duty before, but it could be extremely powerful at close range when dual-wielded.
Soviet Cosmonaut TP-82 Survival Sidearm
In this new trailer, Woods wields a brand-new one-handed Shotgun which some believe to be the Soviet Cosmonaut TP-82 Survival Sidearm.
Russian astronauts brought this small Shotgun to space, so they had some protection when landing in the Siberian wilderness. This sidearm has two Shotgun barrels and a lower rifle barrel that shoots 7.62mm rounds. Fans of Battlefield V will find it extremely familiar to the M30 Drilling, which doubled up as both a Shotgun and Rifle.
There’s no guarantee this is the TP-82, but it looks and acts extremely like it. Whatever this new weapon is, it’s sure to be a unique addition to Season 5.
Reddit user Vengance183 spotted what appears to be the British EM-1 in the Season 5 cinematic. This was an experimental weapon from the 1940s and was considered high-tech for its day.
One of the Warzone and Cold War Season 5 weapons is carried by Woods’ mysterious new squad member, and we get a good view when he drops it after using it as a club. Vengance183 paused the cinematic here, and we can see that it bears a striking resemblance to the EM-1 Rifle.
This won’t be the first time Cold War brings classic weapons to the game, with the PPSH-41 arriving in Season 3.
And that’s all the new weapons Black Ops Cold War players have spotted in the Season 5 cinematic! We expect a roadmap soon, and then we’ll get official confirmation of all of the new season’s upcoming weapons.

Warzone August 5 update patch notes: Krig 6 & CX-9 changes
In a surprise Warzone update on August 5, Raven Software made significant changes to the popular Krig 6 and brand-new CX-9 SMG.
Raven Software has released a new Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Warzone on August 5. This new Game Settings update brings a small number of changes.
Warzone Krig 6 nerfed & CX-9 buffed
Although we’re fast approaching August 12’s Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5, Raven Software has treated fans to two surprise updates this week. First, the long-awaited CX-9 and the Soap Operator bundle finally arrived, and now Raven has released a small, but likely meta-changing, balance update.
In this surprise update, the Krig 6 received an impactful nerf. This weapon was known for its extremely high accuracy and ability to dominate at range. While it still remains as accurate as before, its Lower Torso Multiplier and Maximum Damage Range have been hit.
The Krig 6 will still be able to melt enemies at medium range, but it’ll likely struggle in those long-distance engagements. The C58 Assault Rifle has been a close 2nd place in terms of effectiveness, so it could become the meta once again.
And another surprising tweak, the CX-9 has been buffed. Both its mid damage range and Headshot multiplier have been increased, so the CX-9’s place appears to have been solidified as more of a long-range SMG, that’ll be perfect to pair with Sniper Rifles.
You can check out the exact values below.
Warzone August 5 Update Patch Notes
- Krig 6 (BOCW)
- Lower Torso Multiplier decreased from 1.1 to 1
- Maximum Damage Range decreased from 1500 to 1400
- CX-9 (MW)
- Increased mid damage range from 20 to 21
- Increased Headshot Multiplier from 1.4 to 1.45
