Warzone’s Season 5 Reloaded has introduced the new Clash mode which contains various new powerups, including a Speed Boost that lets you run faster. Here’s how you can get it.

The Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update has brought some new content to enjoy, like the Judge Dredd skin for the Beck Operator and the Numbers event. One of the more notable additions is the new Clash mode.

This mode lets you collect powerups that provide game-changing abilities. One of these is the Speed Boost powerup which lets you zip across the map at near superhuman speed.

Here’s how can get your hands on it.

Warzone’s Clash pits two teams of 50 against each other at a few select POIs from Verdansk. You’ll have to eliminate other players to score points, and you can also collect powerups from defeated enemies.

That’s how you’ll get your hands on the Speed Boost powerup, so be sure to loot the enemies that you take out. You can also find it within supply boxes that on the map, so keep an eye out for those.

Once you’ve acquired the Speed Boost powerup, you’ll be able to sprint so fast that your enemies will have a hard time pinning you down.

Clash mode also has various other powerups that we’ve yet to discover, and they will also provide you with some extremely impressive abilities in combat.

Further, you can also complete contracts for other in-match rewards. This mode also has standard features from Warzone’s Battle Royale and Plunder, such as Loadouts, Cash, Buy Stations, and Vehicles.

Be sure to get your hands on the Speed Boost powerup when you play the new Clash mode. For more Warzone, check out all the nerfs and buffs in the Season 5 Reloaded update.

CoD leakers claim Warzone may never get console FOV slider

As rumors surrounding Warzone 2 come to light, CoD leakers have shared some disappointing news for console players hoping for an FOV slider.

While console Warzone players have been desperate for an FOV slider to hit the game, prominent leakers claim that it’s “not possible” on previous-gen hardware. However, it may arrive with the rumored Warzone 2. 

A field of view (FOV) slider allows players to increase how much information the game displays – helping you spot enemies that would otherwise be cut off at the side of the screen. Both Cold War and Vanguard received FOV sliders on console, but it’s still missing from Warzone. 

Players have been begging Raven to add one to the game but it’s looking more and more unlikely. Rumors have been swirling around Warzone 2, and CoD leakers have claimed that the original Warzone won’t receive a console FOV slider but the sequel could.

In a livestream discussing everything they know about 2023’s rumored Warzone 2, industry insiders Tom Henderson and TheMW2Ghost discussed how Warzone’s sequel may only arrive on PC and next-gen consoles. 

This would allow the devs to go all-out in developing the new CoD battle royale, without being limited by hardware that would be ten years old at the time of release. 

Henderson is confident that “Warzone 2 will be current-gen only,” and the MWGhost said that this would allow them to implement an FOV slider without having to balance the old and current-gen consoles.

However, this news makes it extremely unlikely that Warzone’s current iteration will receive one. Henderson said that “the reason we’re not getting an FOV slider is because it’s technically not possible.” 

MW2Ghost explained that “to sustain a nice resolution, an FOV slider would sacrifice graphics.” Console Warzone features dynamic resolution scaling, where the game reduces its visuals to maintain steady performance. An FOV slider would likely be so taxing that Warzone would either have to sacrifice graphics or performance. 

Raven Software have said that they’re aware of requests for an FOV slider, but haven’t given any timeframe. 

There’s no guarantee an FOV slider will arrive on a next-gen version of Warzone, but it’s much more likely than it arriving in Warzone’s current iteration.

Warzone Season 2 leaks claim Rebirth Island may be removed

According to notable Call of Duty insiders, Rebirth Island could soon be replaced in Warzone Pacific Season 2.

Rebirth Island in Warzone

A new leak from notable Call of Duty insiders have claimed that Warzone’s Rebirth Island may be replaced when the battle royale’s second season launches in February.

Warzone Season 1’s Pacific update gave fans a refreshing change of scenery with the addition of the Caldera map. The map may only be a couple of months old, but the game’s developers have hinted that we could see some map changes in February’s Season 2.

It seems that Caldera won’t be the only map in Warzone to go through changes in the new update. According to new leaks, Rebirth Island could be replaced with a new map in the upcoming season.

These leaks came from prominent CoD insiders ‘Tom Henderson’ and ‘TheMW2Ghost’ in a January 27 live stream, who shared some rumors about what Raven may have planned for Warzone Pacific Season 2.

TheMW2Ghost claimed that the developers may be planning to replace the popular Rebirth map: “Recently, I was told this map is coming. It’s a new map and it’s for the Warzone anniversary.”

They admitted that they don’t have any details about the new map’s size or location. The leakers also explained that it’s possible that it could just be a “new themed version of [Rebirth].”

If these leaks are accurate, then Rebirth Island could be replaced in a matter of weeks. Another notable CoD leaker ‘TheGhostOfHope’ referred to this new area as the ‘Resurgence’ map.

This insider also added that the plans for this new location aren’t confirmed, claiming that the Warzone developers haven’t decided if the Resurgence map will “replace or rotate with Rebirth Island.”

While this all sounds exciting, it’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and these haven’t been officially confirmed by the developers.

Rebirth Island has a limited lobby size of just 40 players and a smaller layout than Caldera. The close-quarters action makes it popular among Warzone players, and it will be missed if it’s removed from the game.

Warzone players want Raven to switch two POIs on Caldera

A Warzone player has rearranged the POIs on Caldera after the community has expressed their discontent with the map design.

Published

Warzone’s new map hasn’t exactly been received very well by players and now the community is suggesting that Raven should switch around two of the POI’s.

Warzone‘s new map Caldera hasn’t exactly been getting positive reviews since it was introduced. As well as bugs and glitches on the map, players have also not been happy with the layout, with many missing Verdansk.

With that being said, one player decided to come up with a way to make the map better by rearranging the POIs.

Reddit user ARES_GOD put a post up in the Warzone subreddit of the Caldera map. The post is captioned: “Hey @RavenSoftware just a thought about Caldera think this would feel better… (Changing POI location).”

Upon inspection, players will notice that the map of Caldera in the post is slightly different from the actual layout of the map. In fact, two of the most popular POIs have switched positions with each other, which the player feels would make Caldera “feel better.”

The two POIs in question are Peak and Capital, which have been switched in this version of the Caldera map. Peak is usually right in the center of the map, which many players aren’t too fond of, as one of the comments states: “Yeah i just dont like peak in the middle.”

The massive mountain directly in the middle of Caldera makes it hard to rotate, as traversing up rocky terrain is notoriously difficult in Warzone.

The idea is to switch this massive height with Capital, a more level POI that would likely make it easier for players to rotate through. Players seem to like the idea, as the post has over three hundred upvotes, with comments expressing their fondness of the change: “The way you edited the map like this is incredible…more buildings at the center for strategizing.”

However, one comment has pointed out that the logistics of the change won’t make much sense: “But whos going to go to an island resort NOT on the beach. And the capital needs a water way for trade. Not very feasible. Though I agree, peak dead center, not my favorite.”

This probably won’t be the way in which Raven updates Caldera, however, they have confirmed that changes are coming.
